Overview

About the property

Unconventional Beach House, With No Right Angles

Two story house, with master bedroom with queen bed and two twin beds upstairs, and a downstairs guest bedroom, with a full bed that sleeps two. House was remodeled seven years ago with new siding, roof, windows, ceiling fans and skylights. Wrap around deck surrounds the house with multiple sitting areas for individual privacy while viewing the birds and garden. House has wonderful, powerful outdoor shower next to the storage shed. Indoors, it has one full bathroom with tub and shower downstairs and a half bathroom with toilet and sink upstairs. Kitchen is fully equiped with a refrigerator, dishwasher and electric oven. Also has three coffeemakers, a microwave, toaster and a variety of blenders. Dining indoors has seating for 8 or you can dine or enjoy lunch outside at the outdoor table which seats 8. Ceiling fans and open skylights provide the house with a breezy feel that beats the summer heat, superior to most air conditioning. Outside a BBQ grill is available for most cooking. We have Direct TV with Netflix, a stereo system and high speed FIOS internet. Bikes are also available at the house stored in the shed. Ample linens, towels, kitchen supplies, are available to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Shed has a clothes washer and dryer for laundry use during longer stays. We have a great perennial garden featuring blueberries, seasonal flowers and herbs for your enjoyment from both the front and back decks. Typical birds are cardinals, robins, wrens and catbirds and occasionally a hummingbird. The deck also has many flowering pots. Welcome to our great escape!

About Frank Thieroff

Currently retired, we have been coming to Fire Island since the mid 1970s. We currently split our time between NYC and Fire Island when we are not traveling.

Frank Thieroff purchased this house in 1996

Why Frank Thieroff chose Ocean Bay Park

We bought this property after 20 years renting on Fire Island in Ocean Bay Park and Seaview. We finally settled on this quiet street in OBP and this unique house where we enjoy every year here. We have owned the house for over 20 years.

What makes this house unique

The house is unique with high beamed rafters, with some of the beams still having their original labels. We added ceiling fans and skylights to make the house more inviting. The dining room table seats 8 and provides a nice setting for gatherings with friends over dinner.

Simply beautiful, clean, well-situated and well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here. Probably better for families as opposed to two couples and a friend because loft level upstairs is not so private. Outside shower is one of the best showers any of us has been in ever. Bicycles and beach accoutrement very convenient. Wished for air conditioning when it rained, otherwise breezy and comfortable.

The house was amazing! The landscape was amazing and so relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

The owners, Frank and Mara, were simply amazing! They were so nice and met us at the ferry and helped us with all of our belongings for the days we would be there. The was beautiful and amazing. It was such a pleasure to stay there and so relaxing even though the house are semi close it still felt as if we were miles away from everyone since the landscape provides the privacy. The house was fully functioning and my group and I definetly over packed with thinking we needed plates and such. Absolutely a wonderful time at the house! Would absolutely reccomend this house to anyone and I would absolutely rent the house again!!

Very Nice Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our stay at Frank & Mara's. Comfortable, clean, and the bikes were great. The grounds were quaint. The outdoor shower and water pressure was wonderful.

Quiet location, 2 min walk to the beach, and 1 mile walk to Ocean Beach.

Great to be back on Fire Island.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really cute house, clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful family weekend! The homeowner provided a wagon and 5 bikes, boogie boards, towels, beach chairs, which were all very much appreciated and saved us from having to bring our own.

Located on a quiet street in Ocean Bay Park, near Seaview. Beach tends to be less crowded and more family oriented than other more crowded areas of OBP. House has a great deck and garden for relaxing with friends. Friends meet at the two bars in OBP, Schooners and Flynns which are also decent restaurants. Seaview market is the closest grocery. Ocean Beach also has several good restaurants, including McGuire's and the Mermaid among the top choices. Tennis is available at the OBP tennis courts this year. Bikes are available at the house to ride into the towns for grocery shopping or various events that may be taking place during the summer.
