About Leonard Chinnici

Born and raised as New Yorkers, enjoying city life and the life on the beach, clamming ,fishing and boating out of E . Islip , just across the bay from Ocean Beach. We as youths always had a fondness for Ocean Beach. It would call our name as we boated by in our clam boat. We would anchor off and swim in and head to the ocean with surf board in hand and a well used towel.

Leonard Chinnici purchased this house in 2004

Why Leonard Chinnici chose Fire Island

As a you high school student clamming on the Great South Bay, right off the shore line, I commented to my younger sibling I would own a piece of this heaven. The smell of the water is engrained in my soul!!

What makes this house unique

Living on the beach, gives one a new perspective on life. Life seems to quiet down. Noise is no longer in the back round. the air is fresh and opens you up to a intoxicating feeling of freedom, peace and happiness. Smell the salt air, look for the skimmer gulls in their early evening searching for small shiners. The smallest sometime most inconsequential thing has beauty if we take the time to look at it and study it.

This property is a unique summer beach community on fire island where there are no cars. You take the ferry across and use little red wagons to transport your food from the dock or order from the market and it is delivered by bicycle. The house is just off the ocean, it is utterly charming! This community is reached by ferry and other communities on fire island can be reached by lateral ferries.

Just returned from a week at this wonderful house. This is the second year we rented and could not have asked for anything. This house has everything for a great vacation. Having the two floors was wonderful as everyone can spread out. We can't wait to go back next year. Len is the best owner. He is quick to answer any questions and just wants you to enjoy his house which we did.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for my daughters 16th birthday , brought and her friends and they had a perfect celebration vacation. The house was perfectly suited with two floors -- they were able to stay on one floor while adults were on the bottom floor. The decks, especially the upper, were one of the nicest features. They stayed out there all night long playing games and listening to music -- they felt like they had the whole house to themselves. The house was spotless when we arrived. Len provided everything we could have needed from sheets, towels, beach chairs, dishes, pots, etc. -- was not missing a thing. Len was extremely gracious and helpful with any issues. The location is perfect -- minutes to walk to the beach and close to town as well -- could not have asked for anything more. Highly recommend this property.

Excellent Ocean Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Ocean Beach house. We stayed with two families and having a kitchen on both families was incredibly helpful. The house is clean, well kept, and has all the amenities you need. We stayed during a very hot week, and the central air worked well and kept us cool, compared to our friends sweating in their non-air conditioned houses. Wifi worked great, Dish tv allowed us to watch olympics. Location is perfect, with easy access to beach and town. Quiet because it's on the beach side of Midway. Also, it's the first house on Fire Island that we've stayed in that had no ants! We'll be back.

Wonderful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The house is beautiful, perfect size for our family to stay and enjoy. Well stocked kitchen that made meal prep for all of us so easy. Accommodations were comfortable and well maintained. Great location between beach and town. Quiet street, with easy access to activity when desired. Owner was also easy to interact with when there were questions. I couldn't have asked for a better rental experience!

Another Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation...with a house that feels like home to us now. We loved this house even more this year. For us the best part is having two floors where the kids can hang with friends downstairs and we can relax upstairs and never feel like we are on top of each other. The decks are great and we used them all the time to have a cup a coffee, a meal or cocktail in the evening. Everything we need for the beach was there....and Len is always very responsive when we have a problem. I highly recommend this large beautiful home.

great vacation spot for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for six nights. what a fantastic house! spacious, clean, incredibly close to the beach! we were 10-12 people all week long with a few day stays and never did the house feel less than perfect. the two kitchens, two decks, two living rooms are all key to relaxing for a week and feel like you can escape to any part of the house. we had great weather, however, one day of rain which didn't matter as we had so much to do in the house!. enjoy the bikes, the chairs, the great comfy areas or just stay on the beach all day. hope to be back next year! owner is quite amenable as well-- made it an easy, pleasant transaction !
