Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Kismet - Motel-O

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our house (which is NOT a motel, that's just the namel!!) was designed for social gatherings!

This open and spacious 'modern' 60's style, retro Kismet Fire Island house has lots of light,

new hardwood floors, full kitchen,

big windows, a private, new, 2nd floor cedar deck, a downstairs deck, BBQ,

Outdoor cedar shower, new appliances, new linens, fully

furnished, professionally cleaned, is 45 seconds from the beach and is a

very fun house. 4 bedrooms. It kind of looks like a Fed Ex box on stilts but the center is actually a private decks open to the stars. This is a great, social space for cooking and sunbathing and napping and hanging out. It is very unique and great for families and friends who want to enjoy their time together.

From this deck area, you can slip back to the bedroom part of the house while everyone else stays up. Or go the other way towards the front of the house where the big open kitchen and living room are.

There is also a free standing fireplace for late spring or late summer or

fall nights.

We strongly advise folks to head out pre season and look at the house as there are no refunds. It's older and has character.

There is also a youtube video.

Kismet has 2 nice restaurants that are a 2 minute walk away. (Surf's Out and The Inn) There's also a small market that is expensive but high end.

No cars allowed on the island at all!

We rent Fri to Fri (only) from July 4th weekend to Labor Day. The rate is $3950 plus $250 for cleaning and propane. Before and after the high season, we will rent for less than a week (ususally 2 night minimum). Very early season (Mid April) and very late season (up to Nov 1), the rate is $350/ night. The first 2 weeks of June and last 2 weeks of Sept are $2500 per week. The last 2 weeks of June and the first 2 weeks of Sept are $3000.

We work on a first come first serve basis.

This is a quiet street and neighbors expect quiet after 10pm so be prepared to take your party to the beach (open all night!) or the restaurants (also open all night!)

Fantastic location, spacious home, everything was clean, and the outdoor shower was heavenly!! Wally was great - super easy to coordinate with and he's always available when you need him. Definitely check it out if you're looking for a relaxing beach weekend.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from vacationing at Motel-O and we had a great time! In the beginning the owner and I were playing phone tag and in the mean time he had received another offer. Wally is an upstanding man who held his word and kept the house for us instead of taking the easy deal. He was honest, loyal and gave us a great weekend away for an unbeatable price. The house was kept very clean and the setup is great for wanting to hangout and be outside. The outdoor seating area was big enough to accommodate all of the people staying and gave us a great place to hangout when we were done with the beach. The location of the house was even better. Literally a minute walk to the beach in a quiet and friendly kismet neighborhood. I would extremely recommend this place to others and would encourage anyone who is looking for a nice, comfortable and easy weekend away to look into this house. It is not pretentious nor is it outdated; it is the perfect fire island getaway that we were looking for and I am sure you would enjoy as well.
