Property description

This house was written up in the architecture section of the local paper, and underwent a $450,000 renovation since then, which included a brand new 1st floor, all new appliances and furniture on the 1st floor, and raising the house 20 feet to meet the new FEMA code, which means the views from EVERY room and the TWO BIG DECKS FACING THE OCEAN are INCREDIBLE! From the top 3rd floor bedroom, you can actually see both the ocean out of one side, and the bay out of the other side (there are windows 360 degrees).

This is one of the nicest houses directly on the water, and one of the best values, as well. A house next door is renting for literally 3x as much, and is only slightly newer.

There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor, each sleeps 2.

The kitchen and LR are also on the 1st floor. Because the house was reposted and raised in 2014, you can see the ocean from every floor, including all the rooms on the 1st floor.

Up a dramatic spiral staircase is the 2nd floor, with a gorgeous, romantic Master Bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and classy ceiling fan and queen bed (sleeps 2).

Also on the 2nd floor is the large Great Room with cathedral ceiling and a queen-size sleeper sofa and large flat screen home theater and a powder room with shower, so this can be used as a guest bedroom and sleep another 2 people comfortably and privately!

Up one more floor is the private secluded 3rd-floor guest bedroom, with windows on all sides, and both bay and ocean views, with a trundle bed that sleeps 2!

There are 2 large decks, both facing the ocean, one on the 1st floor and 1 on the 2nd floor, so you can watch people on the beach or watch your children on the beach. There is even a telescope in the Great Room for this purpose ;)

You are literally on the ocean, and only a 10 min walk to the town of Ocean Bay Park, with several bars and restaurants. You are also only a 15 min walk to Ocean Beach, with over a dozen other bars and restaurants! You can also take the water taxi to every other town in Fire Island, and also get the ferry there to Bayshore--the ferry terminal for both is only a 10-minute walk.

You can rent other bikes for $10/day in town. There is a new gas grill; you can fill up the tank in town for $20.

I spent $450,000 to totally renovate this house from 2013-2014 and repost and raise it, so it is essentially a brand new gorgeous oceanfront home for the vacation of your dreams, to make new memories to last a lifetime!:)

if you can't afford this home, i also have a home not on the beach in ocean beach, which is a 15 min walk away, visit vrbo #304618 or call or email for details!:)

  • King size beds (1) there is one king bed in the master bedroom, which is on the 2nd floor, so this master bedroom can sleep 2 adults, but they would be sharing a bed, so could either be a couple or 2 people OK sharing a bed together. there is a window AC unit, but most tenants never use it and just open the window and listen to the ocean breeze the master bedroom has its own master bathroom, with a shower and his-and-hers sinks and medicine cabinets (so you each get your own area to get ready!) , Queen size Beds (1) there is a queen sleeper sofa in the den, which is on the 2nd floor, and contains the home theater as well. so the den can sleep 2 adults, but this means pulling out the couch and converting it into a sleeper sofa. alternatively, you can easily sleep 1 adult on this couch lengthwise without pulling anything out, because it's huge most families seem to use this den as the place to have the kids and parents hang out and watch TV on the home theater, then the kids fall asleep on the couch or in the bed if it's pulled out, and the parents retire to their separate bedrooms. the den has a view of the ocean, and you can leave the windows open and listen to the waves and fall to sleep that way. alternatively you can turn on the AC, there is a separate window AC unit for every bedroom, but most tenants never turn them on, as the sea breeze is enough there is a private bathroom with a shower off of this den, so this is why it is really like a true bedroom, as you don't have to w, Twin or Single Beds (2) there are 2 twin beds in the guest bedroom on the 1st floor, so this guest bedroom can sleep 2 adults, and they can be of the same or different sexes, as they are not sleeping in the same bed there is an AC window unit, but most tenants never use it as with the windows open it is cool enough because of the sea breezes!:) there is a guest bathroom with a shower adjacent to this guest bedroom on the 1st floor, Sleep Sofa or Futons (1) this is a trundle bed on the 3rd floor bedroom, which has an amazing view of the ocean because it's on the 3rd floor. a trundle bed is a bed with a normal bed on top, which can be used as a daybed and is actually set up that way now, with a hidden bed beneath it so if you want you can pull out the trundle bed beneath the top daybed, and this room can sleep 2 adults this 3rd floor bedroom is one of the most desirable, because it is the highest point of the house with the best view there is no bathroom for this bedroom, so you would have to use one of the 2 bathrooms on the 2nd floor there is a window AC unit for this bedroom, but it is almost never used, as it really isn't necessary...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I was the 1st eye surgeon in NYC to have Lased himself, was the 1st MD to arrive at WTC on 9/11, and now exclusively perform LASEK, the more advanced, non-cutting form of laser vision correction surgery!:) All renters get a $500 discount off LASEK, visit to learn why LASEK is 10x safer than LASIK and can fix most visual side-effects of people who got an older LASIK years ago I have a very cute dog, Rhett, a borzoi, who is also a fashion model (you can follow him @RhettBorzoi). You can follow me @DrLASEK

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Bay Park, Fire Island, NY, USA:
Because I wanted a beachfront vacation home that was an hour away from NYC, and not as far or as snobby as the Hamptons!:)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I like relaxing w my dog Rhett and playing fetch with him at the beach at sunset!:)
