Large, two-story house with 4 bedrooms and tastefully furnished with comfort in mind. The second floor features a large sun deck with bay view and barbeque, large living room and dining room, kitchen, bathroom, and one bedroom. The first floor has three large bedrooms, bathroom with washing machine and dryer, large outdoor shower, and linen closet with bath and beach towels. The house sleeps 8 people comfortably (2 bedrooms have double beds and 2 bedrooms have two twin beds). Each bedroom has two windows with cross ventilation, a closet, dresser and electric fan. The house also comes with two window air conditioners that can be installed in two bedrooms as needed. The kitchen is fully equipped because the home owner loves to cook and entertain. The large living room and dining room are surrounded by windows so there is always a lot of light and cool ocean or bay breezes. A killer sectional couch is perfect for napping. The dining room table opens up and can seat 10. The large sun deck with a tree top view of the bay (and surrounding roofs) is a wonderful place to read and relax and it is perfect place for end-of-the-day cocktails at sunset. The house is conveniently located. Guests have the calm vibe of Seaview but they are close to the excitement and entertainment of Ocean beach. The beach is 2 1/2 blocks away and the bay is 1/2 block. The center of Ocean Beach is a quick 5 minute walk, and it is even shorter to walk to the Seaview Market and ferry terminal. The house location is convenient to either the Ocean Beach or Seaview ferry terminals. We would like to rent our house for a total of two weeks during the summer, Monday-Sunday (6 nights). Utilities are included. Pet friendly. Seaview is a family community so no party shares. Because the house is built on stilts and high, it was fortunately not damaged during hurricane Sandy.
Payments due in two installments. First (50%) is due with the signed contract; second is due 2 weeks before rental. A security deposit in the amount of $500 is required and will be refunded if there is no damage to the property. A professional cleaning fee (average $125) will be deducted from the deposit.

Guarantee the rental meets your expectations.
Ensure you're prepared in case of accidental damage.
The Seaview is a beautiful and peaceful residential community in close proximity to the bustling commercial village of Ocean Beach, which has many restaurants, bars, shops, a post office, bakery, and a day camp. The bay, beach and Seaview Market are nearby. Seaview's tennis courts, playground, baby pool, and bay 'beach' are about 10 blocks from the house. Fun and scenic day trips include the Fire Island Lighthouse and the Sunken Forest, both reachable via long walks on the beach or by water taxi from Ocean Beach. Fire Island is also a great place for bike riding and bird watchings.
Year Purchased: 1986
About the owner: My husband bought the house in 1986 after renting and running share houses for many years. I fell in love with Fire Island after working there for three summers. We met in Ocean Beach and fell in love 25 years ago. After 20 years of marriage, there is still no place we would rather spend our summer weekends and vacations. Our daughter feels the same way. It is a magical place.
