Property description

Vacation in my wonderful home with its spectacular panoramic views of the ocean, bay and wildlife sanctuary. This view is unmatched and my house is known as 'the house with the view'. 15 yards to beautiful uncrowded sandy beach. Multi-level decks, h/c outdoor shower. Four comfortable bedrooms, two and 1/2 baths. Private, gracious house in excellent condition. see more photos at fireislandfrankel.com. One note…..my house was hit by Sandy so you will not see many reviews from the last two years. However, my house has been rebuilt to its former glory (actually better) so please read previous years reviews. You can count on them as the house has been updated with all new plumbing and electrical work and all bedrooms are freshly built….walls, floors, ceilings, and mattresses, etc. The bathroom and outdoor shower is new. Visitors can be sure my house is in excellent condition. Raised 10 feet after 'Sandy' for spectacular views of ocean and bay. Sandy took away the landscaping and it is beginning to find its way back in place.
Sliding patio doors to decks/porch from all bedrooms. Screen porch for candlelight dinners. Ideal for two families/four couples. (8 persons allowed). Friendly small, safe community. No cars on the island.
House in Robbins Rest, a 10 minute walk west of Ocean Beach ferry slip. One hour car, train or van-NYC to ferry. 25 minute ferry ride. Swimming, surfing, fishing. Short walk to Ocean Beach's shops, restaurants, playground, tennis, basketball, day camp. Hardwood floors; open plan 30 foot living/dining room. Well equipped kitchen. Refrigerator/freezer/ice thru door, ceramic cooktop. Large charcoal grill. Renter provides starter supply of charcoal.
Comfortable surroundings, easy upkeep. : Excellent, NEW mattresses/beds, remodeled after 'Sandy'; bed and bath linens provided, reclining beach chairs, 2 PackNPlay,2 high chairs. Adult and children's games, puzzles, cards, etc. Golf at one of the USA's best-Bethpage-within 1/2 hour drive from ferry. Previous renter referrals available on guestbook. Discount for long term rentals.

Magical setting: My home is located facing miles of the ocean, sandy beach, the wildlife sanctuary and the Great South Bay where the sun sets every night over the water! It is private, quiet, serene and can be very romantic as well as very suitable for families. Wraparound decks and screen porch offer many choices of places to read, talk and gaze at the scenery in groups or in privacy. Watch peaceful, spectacular sunsets that you'll never forget as the sky turns pink and the sun disappears into the bay. Fire Island is a very special place like no other in the world. Yet, it is so close to New York City. A wonderful place for families to make memories and for children to build on them. My children treasure the time they spend here and return often to have their children experience the same. Drawing on the sidewalk with colored chalk, collecting seashells, painting on rocks, reading. All the pleasures of a simple and shared summer to make memories that last forever.

From a guest summer 2006--We had a great time at your house. Actually, a great time isn't really the right way to describe it. It was idyllic. It was exactly the kind of experience I always imagined for the kids--the freedom to run around and explore without visible parental interference. They made sand castles; they had water fights; they collected shells; they painted shells; they rode back and forth to the bay. They exhausted themselves in the surf. It was beyond my greatest expectations. How often in life does that happen? Unfortunately, I'm already back into the very busy fall schedule and Robbins Rest is just a beautiful memory. Really, thanks for sharing that incredible place with us.-Marie, NYC

The first floor has been totally remodeled after 'Sandy' with white shiplap walls, new white oak floor, ceiling, new laundry appliances, new furnishings, new shower, etc. See fireislandfrankel dot com for more photos.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I am a former home design editor of consumer magazines and my home reflects my taste in a beach house manner. It is casual in true beach house style but elegant. My family uses it between renters so I've based the design, furniture and amenities on what I think occupants might need, plus what they might want.

Why the Owner Chose Robbins Rest:
My home has a rare location with spectacular views of ocean, bay and wildlife sanctuary. Robbins Rest is a quiet, small community (32 houses) with a short walk to the nearest ferry, restaurants, groceries, etc. There is a good distance between our houses which offers privacy and peace. All walls in the house are white and bedroom are newly rebuilt after Sandy. We rented this property many years ago and told the owners that if they ever want to sell, call us! A few years later they did just that!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunrises and settings convinced us to buy this house as we had rented it for two seasons for family use. We looked forward to using it for many generations. Now that it has been raised after 'Sandy' it has 'more than a million-dollar view even from the bedrooms that are on the first floor. Fully rebuilt after 'Sandy'. Every bedroom has sliding patio doors and opens to a deck or porch. Three dining areas-screen porch, dining area, upper deck overlooking the full spectrum!
