About Virginia Van Vessem

This home has been in our family since the 1950's.. It has been completely renovated. We love our beach house and use it in the off season. Being in the gay area of Fire Island you have many reasons to come back again and again. As owners of this unique home, we are always acessable. We live on the mainland 30 minutes from the ferry that transports you to Fire Island. You can always reach us by phone for any problems that arise.

Virginia Van Vessem purchased this house in 1953

Why Virginia Van Vessem chose Fire Island Pines

This home is in the most beautiful area of all Fire Island! The atmosphere is unique. Great night life and serene quiet days. Beautiful beaches and boardwalks. Perfect summer retreat. No cars. Part of the National Seashore Park.

What makes this house unique

Fire Island is part of the National Seashore. It is full,of wildlife, birds,deer, piping plovers and sea gulls. The island is a walking island only to be traveled to by a ferry from mainland of Long Island. Fire Island is 30 miles long with many communities (22) along the barrier beach. Our home, in Fire Island Pines, is one of the two gay communities on Fire Island. This community boasts the most beautiful unique homes on all of the barrier beach. Stores ,restaurants, bars, community plays and much much more. It's the home of the famous "invasion" that happens on the Fourth of July. Right next to " the Pines" within walking distance is Cherry Grove. Also a gay community with more fun then you could ask for. The summer is so much fun on Fire Island and is definitely the place to see and be seen.Unique! Unique! Unique!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Excellent location, a pristine cottage with every amenity and comfort we could have wanted, and the very private pool in back really topped it off. Virginia was a great host- thank you! We hope to return!

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The 206 pine walk cottage is the perfect vacation house for anyone who wants to chill in the middle of the nature, 7 min away from the ocean but yet close to the inner core of pines. Everything is so easily accessible and convenient to reach that it makes this lovely house the perfect place to stay.

The communication with the owners was always easy, friendly and professional.

The house itself is very cute and very well maintained. It's perfect for a group of 4 friends. Nothing is missing.

Of course the pool is really the cherry on top of the cake: perfect to cool down and to enjoy the sun from the morning till the end of the afternoon.

We certainly enjoyed our stay. I want to thank the owner for having such a beautiful home! We totally recommend whoever wants to enjoy fire island pine to stay at the Van Vessem's.

Terrific stay in the Pines

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my friend and me: perfect size, kitchen and outdoor grill, price, location, pool and deck, sound system, beach chairs, laundry, and indoor and outdoor amenities and design. It couldn't have been better and I am very grateful for the warm welcome we received and the terrific memories we made in this very comfortable home. Thank you!

Perfect Pines Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Freshly renovated, spotless bungalow. Perfect for a couple + 2 friends or two couples. Close in to the harbor, so a quick walk to the Pantry and tea - but amazingly no noise spillover from the nightlife. Huge deck and pool area perfect for outdoor lounging and dining. Spent all of our time by the pool, which gets tons of sun during the day, but its a quick walk to the beach. Great outdoor shower, wifi speakers. Fully updated kitchen. Would rent here again in a heartbeat - friendly, phone-accessible owners quickly addressed any questions.

Perfect home base in FIP!

  • 5 of 5

This property is on the smaller side, but is among the nicest in the Pines - tons of modern amenities and great touches that make it a cut above a lot of the bigger properties in the area, especially for a smaller group. The owner replied to questions quickly and was in general excellent to work with. 110% satisfied and highly recommend the property!

Was great for what it is

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage among mansions with an amazing pool and deck.

Owner gave great directions to house, but make sure to ask where the lockbox is and where the detailed renters book of information is as well. It was inside a cabinet.

Super relaxing and everything you need including nature all around you.
