About the property

3&4 Bedroom Houses, 2 Baths each (Sleep 6 & 8); in quiet/nicest area on FI!

Great Houses - 100 yards to the Beach!

We have full weeks, weekends & midweeks available from April through October!

Availability and pricing are listed on our website (email us and we will pass along the link).

Our two clean, comfy houses are in the nicest, family-friendliest section of Ocean Bay Park (close to Seaview) and are only 7 houses from the OCEAN!

The houses are available for full-week, weekend and midweek rentals from May through October: Long weekends are also available for holidays. (Additional days can also be added to create 'super' weekend vacations!) One house has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6), and the other has 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8).

The houses are across the street from one another, about 100 yards from one of the island's least crowded & nicest beaches. There are stores and restaurants within a few blocks, and the bustling village of Ocean Beach is a nice stroll or quick bike ride away. (We like being close enough to get to Ocean Beach's stores and restaurants, but not too close to its overcrowded beach and noisy, hectic vibe!)

We are life-long members of the community and have been offering rentals for over 20 years. We are the property owners, so you would not be risking your vacation renting from someone who is actually subletting someone else's house!

There is a public swimming beach and picnic area at the bay (one block away). A quick (5-minute) and pleasant walk gets you to the stores and restaurants in Ocean Bay Park. All utilities (electric, propane, water, cable TV, WiFi) and all linens & towels (beach & bath) are included in the rental fee.

BOTH HOUSES come with Wi-Fi Internet, 2 Satellite TV's with DirecTV, DVD, VCR, CD stereo; bikes, wagon, port-a-crib, Weber BBQ grill, games, books, video/DVD library, patio & deck furniture, beach chairs & umbrellas, beach toys, etc. Both houses have stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee machine, full cooking gear/utensils, condiments, pots, pans, etc.

Villa du Soleil – 4 bedroom house (max.occupancy: 8)

Our simple, loft-like, open-plan 4-bedroom house is nicely spread out on one level, with three big bedrooms in the main house (two rooms have one queen-size bed in each; the third has a bunk bed), and a separate/detached guest bedroom in the back (with one double/full-size bed for 1 or 2). There are tons of windows, ceiling fans in the living room and the two master bedrooms, and oscillating fans in the other rooms. The house sleeps up to 8 people, has 2 bathrooms and 2 deck areas (a front deck for eating and a back deck for lounging in the sun & shade). The house is equipped with an outdoor shower & an antique upright piano.

Villa Etoile – 3 bedroom house (max. occupancy: 6)

Our charming 3-bedroom house has a great 2-story layout and amazing light and air throughout. The dining room and living room are in a large open space cooled by a large ceiling fan and clerestory windows that catch the high ocean breezes. There are two bedrooms downstairs (one has a double/full-size bed for 1 or 2 people, and the other has 2 twin beds), and one private 'master' bedroom upstairs (with a queen-size bed) and private balcony deck. The room can be opened up to overlook the living room below. The house sleeps up to 6, has 2 bathrooms and 2 large deck areas (one in the front with a big table for lunching outside in the sun, and another deck, even more private, in the back of the house with deck chairs for lounging in the sun or shade and a huge cedar outdoor shower.

** Please note that our houses are located in the QUIET/NON-party house section of OBP and that noise and overcrowding rules are enforced. Those looking for a loud house should look elsewhere. Most of our guests are families or quiet, mature groups at least 25 years old. No sublets allowed.

About The Owner

We are lifetime members of the community who have been renting our properties from April through October for over 20 years. Midweeks, weekends or weekly rentals are available. Since we are the property owners, you would not be risking your vacation renting from someone who is illegally subletting someone else's house.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Ocean Bay Park

Grew up a block away from the rental houses, spending summers in Fire Island. It is an amazing place for kids (we have two!), mellow groups, friends and family. No cars during the summer months, no traffic... just bikes, deer, rabbits, bare feet, sand and ocean! Most people choose Ocean Bay Park over Ocean Beach because it is less crowded (Ocean Beach has 2-3 times as many houses, thousands of tourists every day, and a tiny/crowded beach where things like eating, drinking, throwing a frisbee, etc. are banned), and offers a more laid-back, un-regimented lifestyle - which is exactly what Fire Island is all about!

What makes this house unique

Only 7 houses from the ocean! Only one block to the bay and family swimming beach & picnic area. 2 blocks away from ferry dock. 5-minute walk to restaurants, bars, grocery store, boat launch, etc. The bustling village of Ocean Beach with stores, restaurants and nightspots is a nice stroll or short bike ride away.

Owner's Response: Lexi was an excellent guest. She was easy to communicate with and took great care of our house. We'd be more than happy to have Lexi and her friends visit our beach property again!

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

The house suited us down to the ground. Really comfortable living room ope to kitchen, meant we could all lounge around together. Very well equipped with everything you could want. Lots of deck area and very private. Hop and a skip to the beach.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to the island as a family, and we had a blast staying in the 4 br house. There are tons of toys for small children and everything that you need to enjoy the beach. The beach is a few hundred yards from the front gate, and simply perfect. The kitchen and appliances are great, and everything is fully stocked. Great Webber grill and outdoor shower complete the amenities, and This house has a family vibe, and is perfect for a getaway from the city. It is also located far enough from the party areas of the Island that you can avoid them or partake in a night out with some of the younger (wow.... I'm getting old) crowd. The owner is super responsive, and clearly cares about the details of your stay. We loved that there is a basket of shells that all guests add to with their names and dates of their stay. We definitely hope to add many more shells in the future!

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Don't know how there aren't any reviews for this gem of a beach cottage! We stayed for an extended 3 day weekend. The house had everything we needed, the bikes were awesome! And we are literally a 2 min walk to the beach and from the ferry drop off! We will be back for sure!

Fire Island is unlike any other vacation destination. There's plenty to do, by yourself, with your friends or with your kids. The diversity of communities makes it even more interesting. You can hop on a bike and go explore while riding the many boardwalks and walkways that criss-cross the island. And of course, let's not forget the beach and all the fun it has to offer! And it's only 100 yards from both houses!

Fire Island has activities for everyone, including swimming, shopping, surfing, bodysurfing, hiking, sailing, wildlife observing, tennis, fishing, etc. Go to Sunken Forest and explore the island in its natural state! You can also take fun daytrips to other communities or even visit the Fire Island Lighthouse. Children will enjoy the playgrounds, 'kiddie' beaches and wildlife all around. Cars are not a worry in the summer months - just fun and sun!
