OBP has a few local restaurants, a pizza parlor and an ice cream shop, as well as tennis courts and kayaks and canoes that can be rented. It’s a fifteen to twenty minute walk (or 5 minute bike ride) to Ocean Beach, which is like the metropolis of Fire Island, with several restaurant, nightlife, shopping and activity options. Food delivery options also abound, including supermarkets in Bay Shore, a local fish store and a deli all deliver your food fresh on the ferry for easy pick-up.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Rebecca,

An hour and a half from Manhattan, close to the ferry,steps from the beach your beautiful home provides the perfect tranquil place to enjoy Fire Island, friendship and food. It's been another great summer enjoying days at the beach, sunsets on the deck and the comforts of your wonderful home. Even though we are throughly familiar with everything your home has to offer. We are still delighted by the abundant charm. Looking forward to another year....

We Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted to spend a week here in this lovely home-even with some of the worst (rainiest) weather of the summer ... we were comforted by the beautiful kitchen, sound system, wifi, comfy living room and exotic master bedroom while it rained outside for 2 days. We didn't mind staying in, playing scrabble, cooking, and enjoying the view and feeling of being in a tree house. The yard/garden is lush and tranquil and really makes you feel like you have been transported ...I was reminded of a trip to Costa Rica where we stayed in a rainforest-while just a short trip from the city! I only wish it was cool enough to light a fire in the beautiful fireplace!

When the sun came out we enjoyed the clean and beautiful beach just a 1 minute walk away. We also loved having the bikes which were in great shape and took us to playgrounds, restaurants and on leisure rides to enjoy the houses and deer in the area. The island has such a great relaxed pace you feel like you stepped back in time, and getting around to other areas is easy and fun by bike or water taxi. We also loved our walk in the Sunken Forest, just about a mile and a half away, if you need a break from all the relaxing for some exercise.

We were so grateful to our host for having a kitchen with all the supplies and comfy bedding with down pillows and clean and new showers as well as decks that you could spend all day on-plenty of seating in sun or shade. We also truly appreciated the artistic design touches throughout the house, including some incredibly detailed moroccan style painting on various walls! This was truly a great escape and one we hope to revisit again soon!

its like borrowing your best friends place....

  • 5 of 5

the owner could not make it any easier or make you feel more welcome. the decor is stunning as well as comfortable and everything is updated including wireless connection. could not be easier to do business with, phone calls returned promptly and even a welcome call to make sure everything is ok. garden is stunning and furnishings beautiful. it really is like being trusted in someone's home that you are very close with. conveniently located if you want to go into town or beach but everything you really need to recharge at the house.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a one of a kind home. Not your typical rental house, which usually is a square box with cheap furniture and appliances.

The home (not house) is beautifully decorated and perfectly situated close to the beach. The landscaping alone shows you that the owner really took a lot of time and put in a lot of thought into setting the perfect mood.

The bedrooms were light and airy on both floors. The kitchen was magnificent, and really blended well with the rest of the house. The feng shui of the home was apparent.

We loved the upper deck, the lower deck and the entrance to the home. The new air conditioners made the vacation even more enjoyable since there was a heat wave for the entire week.

With two families and all the kids, nobody got in anyone's way. The best part was that you felt secluded yet we were so close to everything.

Would definitely recommend this house to anyone who asks.

Best House! Best Location! Best Everything!

  • 5 of 5

A truly gorgeous house – so light and airy, it is the quintessential beach escape. I have rented for 2 summers and it has always been immaculately maintained, with new updates every single year (a brand new kitchen and fully renovated bathrooms this year!).

The layout is perfect for beach living on so many levels (literally and figuratively). The open plan living area and kitchen are surrounded by windows and glass doors that lead out onto an enormous wrap-around deck. This is all located on the 2nd floor, which lends itself to incredible light from morning until the incredible sunsets come filtering in. The master bedroom is also on the upstairs floor, and is fully of light due to doors that lead out onto the deck. Downstairs, there are 3 good sized bedrooms with charming, perfectly nautical-seeming wooden walls and ceiling. In the past those rooms might have gotten slightly stuffy on really hot days but there is now AC (though a fan always did the trick).

Since Fire Island is all about outdoor and beach living, it’s perfect to have the bedrooms downstairs – they’re like a cozy retreat. There is also a full bathroom and separate laundry room on the first floor.

One of the best features are the outdoor spaces that have the best views. You can see straight across the island from ocean to bay. The upstairs deck is enormous and has every built-in feature you could dream about – tables, benches, perfectly potted plants, a grill, shady spots, sunny spots. Every detail was thought about! There is also even a 3rd level deck for the ultimate views.

Inside, the taste level is far above most every Fire Island house. The furniture is fantastic and the whole place is meticulously designed with painted Moroccan details throughout (which are subtle enough if it’s not your style, but give the atmosphere such a unique, luxurious vibe). I’ve never seen a house quite like it – and every guest was beyond impressed.

Great for families, it is a secluded and private house that goes far beyond the typical beach shack – it’s totally modern and updated, but has charming details. I wouldn’t want to rent anywhere else!

It's a charming place

  • 5 of 5

The house is very private, as it's surrounded by trees and vegetation, there's even a vegetable garden. There are lots of bikes and a good trolley for transportation, as well as generous beach gear. It's an unusually large house for Fire Island and has a unique top deck, that is great to sit on for the sunsets. The Moroccan style is very tasteful and welcoming, and all the amenities are modern and well maintained.

For cooks, it's an especially good place to stay with a great kitchen. The two main decks are really delightful. The only drawback are the mosquitos which are pretty intense in the evenings, but that's true for all the properties just a little inland of the beach. The downstairs rooms are hot at night, but there are plenty of cooling fans.

It's a really relaxing place to stay and ideal for a family, who just want to enjoy more privacy than you can get in most properties on the island. We had a great time, and even with 6 adults and 4 kids the place never felt crowded. We would thoroughly recommend renting this place, especially if you have artistic tastes and are looking for something with a lot of character and charm, as well as good amenities.
