Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Ocean Beach

Sandy feet is the Ocean Beach motto and the red Flexible Flyer wagon is the island's symbol. Not only does it represent a car-free society and barefoot philosophy, but a quaint island charm.

Red wagons are used to cart luggage to and from the ferry or shops. Bicycling (on weekdays) through this family neighborhood is the favored means of transportation unless it's a barefoot stroll to the beach.

Island living includes a walk to the bayside of Ocean Beach to browse the shops, artist gallery, restaurants, bakery, library, grocery stores, or enjoy some family time at the local playground, a pick-up game of softball, Windswept Youth Group camp (ages 4-13), movie theatre, tennis court or basketball courts.

This 3-bedroom cottage is nestled between the bay and ocean on a double lot. The simple comforts and easy access make this cottage a place where people want to return. We want you to feel our house is your home.

Grill on the private deck surrounded by native blueberry bushes or relax in the screened porch. Enjoy the modern convenience of air conditioning or the southern charm of overhead fans in one of the original Ocean Beach bungalows.

About Diane Chase

I help to manage the Ocean Beach cottage for my extended family. It is such a special place to all of us and an integral part of our history. When my family is not enjoying the ocean or bay shores of Fire Island, we are in the Adirondack mountains living an active outdoor life. Warning: blatant self-promotion. I am the author of the Adirondack Family Time guidebook series. :-)

Diane Chase purchased this cottage in 1930

Why Diane Chase chose Fire Island

This island original cottage has been in the Chase family for four generations. This quant cottage is ideally located four houses off of Midway toward the ocean. It provides an opportunity for people to relax and leave their hectic world behind. He and my sisters-in-law spent their summers working and relaxing in Ocean Beach. It continues to be a family retreat for the next generation. It is such a unique community to be a part of. It is a treasure that we delight in sharing with others.

What makes this cottage unique

Ocean Beach is a safe, family-friendly environment. We are committed to helping you create some of the most unique and wonderful memories only Ocean Beach can provide.

I work for myself and that means I am always working. My first trip to Ocean Beach helped me realize how important it is for my health and well being to take some time for myself. I still have to work, but I can quickly take a morning run on the beach or watch my kids fishing off the dock at the bay.

The cottage is beautifully decorated with a classic white beach feel that allows for daily stress to disappear. I hope you find this cottage to have the same effect on you.

We stayed here during the first week of August and we all had a wonderfully relaxing time. The booking and planning process went smoothly, as the owners communicated efficiently and clearly. They even called to make sure all was well the day that we arrived. The home was the perfect size for myself and my husband, as well as our toddler and my parents (who did not mind sleeping in separate beds). The owners were kind enough to provide a portable crib that worked out great for my 17 month old. We spent most of our time on the beach, but when at the cottage, we loved the porch, especially at night since we were able to avoid mosquitoes. We will remember many of the moments we shared in this adorable cottage for years to come. This was truly our "home" for the week, and the fully stocked kitchen enabled us to cook family meals together throughout our stay. Everything that was promised was in the home, including a ton of towels, sheets, dishes, pots and pans. The home was clean and welcoming, and the dining area is absolutely adorable. No matter what age, Ocean Beach is a great place to stay whether you want to relax like we did, or spend nights in town at the bars and restaurants. We can't wait to come back!
