4 Bedroom, 1 & 1/2 bathroom home steps from the beach and a short stroll to the Village of Ocean Beach.
Our traditional Fire Island home is in a great location and has everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There is a really nice deck with a great outdoor shower. Inside is a large living room with smart t.v and a separate eat-in-kitchen. We have a.c. and wi-fi, beach chairs, towels and even a beach wagon to make everything as easy as possible.
So get up in the morning and walk the few steps to the beach or sit on the deck and listen to the Ocean!
Barry's house was clean , spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect - just steps from the beach and not too far or too close to town.
The air conditioning and treats in the kitchen were amenities above and beyond our expectations .
Barry was a pleasure to deal with at all times .
I stayed at Barry's house escaping the sweltering heat in NYC for a weekend. The house was perfect for our needs (a group of 8)- we spent 90% of our time on the amazing deck or wandering to and from the beach (a couple of minutes walk). The place was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook/BBQ for every meal. There was air conditioning in each room and large dining/living area if you do need to retreat inside.
There was also several umbrellas, chairs and whatever else you can think of needing for a day at the beach for our use. Barry was very responsive and replied to requests or questions immediately. I received my deposit back immediately following check out. All in all, a seamless and pleasurable experience.
Barry described this beach house very well. It is in a great location- minutes from the beach and a short walk to town. It has a comfortable and private large deck with a fine barbeque grill, lounge chairs, a table with an umbrella, and yes a great outdoor shower with a place to dress. We enjoyed the beach chairs that we took down to the beach, the excellent TV, and the fine layout of the house- the bedrooms were spaced apart so the teenaged girls could stay up late and the rest of us could go to sleep. We chose a week in August and we were happy that we had chosen a house with air conditioning. The house was well stocked with paper towels, sponges, dish soaps, t paper, beach towels, bed linens, pots & pans, a spaghetti colander, coffee pot etc. Nothing was missing.
What Barry didn't say was how available he was to answer questions. He answered all my questions quickly- before the vacation and during. He is available via phone, text or e-mail. He even answered questions such as, "How do we tune in to the Olympics' Girls' Soccer game?"
Ocean Beach on Fire Island has restaurants, shops, ice cream stores, bike rentals, a playground, bay swimming and of course the ocean. No cars- everything in walking distance. It is a great little town.
This was a very enjoyable vacation.
This was our first time renting in Fire Island and our experience at Barry's house was nothing short of fantastic! The house is warm and spacious, fully stocked with linens, paper towels, cleaning products. The best part is easily the outdoor shower. We, too, spent most of our time on the patio either hanging throughout the day or grilling with some jams playing. What impressed us most is how available and prompt Barry was with ALL our questions/concerns and all the great recommendations he made for dining & nightlife. We hope to make this a yearly tradition moving forward.
This house was a perfect find! First of all, Barry is a pleasure to work with. He answered all of our annoying questions with calm and ease. He was extremely helpful and accommodating.
The house has been updated and is clean and inviting. There is more than enough room for all guests. The appliances are updated and CLEAN! Linen and towels are provided and are all washed and clean as well. You could also use the washer and dryer if needed.
The outdoor shower was a godsend with 10 girls getting ready at the same time. Also the house is up to code as there were no circuit breaks while everyone was using their hair appliances! (Trust me, super important!!)
The location is perfect- closer to the beach but a 5 minute walk to town. You can't ask for a better location.
Finally, the outdoor deck was perfection. There is ample seating, a dinning table and a grill. Everything looks new and it is spacious. It was great for dinners and just hanging out.
I have been renting in Fire Island for over 6 years now and this was hands down the best experience I have had.
I cannot say enough good things about Barry and his home! We stayed in the house for 3 weekends this summer (4th of July & Labor Day included) and each time was such a wonderful experience!
Barry was very helpful from day 1. I am always a bit hesitant when renting houses through the internet but Barry was kind enough to meet me in person so that I could give him the deposit. We talked for almost an hour about the house and Fire Island in general. He even gave us a list of restaurant/bar recommendations. He also made sure that every weekend we had everything we needed: propane for the grill, paper towels, beach towels, beach chairs, fresh sheets & shower towels (the list goes on and on).
The house itself is just perfect. When we weren't at the beach, we spent most of our time on the patio grilling. It's a really nice set up, great for groups! Another feature that I loved was the outdoor shower. It was really relaxing and it came highly recommended by a friend of mine who stayed in the house on a separate occasion.
The beach is about a 2 minute walk from the house and the town is about 7-8 minutes away (there are no cars on the island which is really nice). Barry also has a wagon in the shed if you need to get anything from the town.
I definitely plan on going back next year if the house is still available! Thank you again Barry for everything this summer. I consider myself very lucky to have stayed there this summer.
