Why Charlotte Kahn chose Fire Island

As a family we enjoyed this property for many years. Children are now grown and have built their own or moved far away with the grandchildren.

Family still uses the house during times when it is not rented. It's great to have the beach so near to where we live in New York City.

What makes this house unique

Living out of doors, eating on the deck, and such easy access to the water for swimming or walking on the beach.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Ocean Bay Park. The house was perfect for our needs. Well stocked, clean, and perfectly located to the beach, Flynn's, the ferry dock for water taxis/ferry, ice cream and pizza shops, etc. The deck is huge and well appointed. There were games, books and sand toys for the kids to play with. WiFi was a great bonus. Plenty of windows to open and enjoy the ocean breezes. The owner was pleasant and easy to deal with. Hope to return again someday.

A great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in this very peaceful and relaxed home - aptly called "shed your stress"! The house is very well set up with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable living room and bedrooms, a great deck - and bikes! Our kids had a wonderful time riding around the island, and my parents enjoyed relaxing in the house.

The house is very well located, close to the ferry, the beach, shops at Ocean Bay Park and Seaview and restaurants at Ocean Beach. The owner was extremely helpful and provided all the information we needed.

We really enjoyed walking to the Sunken Forest, biking to different beaches, and taking the water taxi to explore other communities.

The only caveat I would add - and this relates to Fire Island not this great house - is to bring your own food supplies if you are staying for more than a couple of days, as prices are expensive.

We would recommend this property and would happily stay here again.

Lovely week away from it all

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a fabulously relaxing week with our 3 kids at this wonderful house and after 7 years spent house hopping between OBP, OB and Seaview we all declared this home the best of the lot. The house was convenient to the ferry, beach and just a 20 minute walk to Ocean Beach. The layout of the house was also perfect for our family of 5 and the variety of sized bikes worked well for all of us.

Everything you need for a relaxing week away.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week on Fire Island in this charming house. Very sadly the house we have stayed in for the past 4 years, that we adored, was completely devastated by Sandy. This meant searching for an alternative option. It was always going to be difficult to find somewhere that matched our expectations but we were pleasantly surprised by this little gem.

Just a short walk from Ocean Bay Park Ferry terminal it's location is easy to find and perfectly placed being cycling distance from Seaview and Ocean Beach. The best thing about the house is the huge deck which catches the sun all day long and is secluded. We enjoyed breakfast out there every morning and had a grill every evening. It also has a fantastic outdoor shower with very hot water all day long.

The house itself was clean and had all the essentials that we needed. Our two children aged 8 and 9 yo loved the attic bedroom and we were very comfortable in the downstairs double. The sitting room was cosy and well lit.

The kitchen had a bit of an ant infestation but we have come to expect some wildlife on the island! Otherwise it was very well equipped with a great dishwasher and washer/dryer.

I loved the fact that there were lots of beach towels available, as well as plenty of bedding and blankets.

All the bikes worked and we had two locks. We also had more than enough beach chairs, buckets and spades and other beach items.

The owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with. All her instructions were clear and everything was just as she implied.

I would really recommend this house to any family wishing to have a relaxing week on Fire Island.

Perfect place to escape!

  • 4 of 5

Situated on a quiet street in Ocean Bay Park, this house is cozy, charming and very comfortable. We stayed here during the July 4th holiday and had a wonderful time. Easy access to the ferry, beach, stores and the town of Ocean Park. The best part of the house is the massive deck and outdoor grill. The deck was worth the cost of the house. This is the perfect place for a small family.

Great weekend!

  • 4 of 5

A few friends and I rented this house for an extended weekend and were pleasantly surprised. We were expecting to squeeze into a tiny cottage but there were plenty of places to sleep, and the huge deck and close proximity to the beach allowed us to spend all of our time outside. The owner was extremely pleasant to deal with and the entire renting process was really simple. We booked rather last minute so I was surprised we were able to rent at all, let alone have such a stress free process. The only concern I had was the white furniture, it made me extremely nervous that we might spill something or get it dirty, as it is a beach house, but as I said we spent such a large majority of our time outside that this did not even become an issue.
