Overview

About the property

Seaview: 4-5 BR; steps to market, beach and bay; WiFI, access to Seaview pool

Not your typical rental property! Our 1930's era house is one we hold dear -- it has been the place for family and friend gatherings for over a decade and we rarely rent it. It is a family-friendly property with 4 bedrooms; the expansive, upstairs master suite is renovated complete with hardwood floors, a private office and AC (the downstairs also has AC). The room adjacent to the master bedroom is currently an office but easily converts into a 5th bedroom.

The house boasts a renovated retro kitchen with a counter/pass thru into the dining room, which seats 8-10. Windows all around bring the outside in.

We have an ideal location so that you don't have to drag your wagon far -- one block from the ferry and the famous Little's Market/liquor store. Shopping and restaurants are a 5-minute walk away in Ocean Beach. The house comes complete with numerous bicycles, beach toys and boasts an expansive deck, side yard and outdoor shower.

Should you need to work or check e-mail, we have a private office upstairs, complete with 2 desk, wireless Internet, a printer and more.

We require a one week minimum. The house is available for May, June, 2-3 weeks in July and the latter part of August.

This is a quintessential Fire Island property.

Why Ellen Yount chose Seaview

This is a special, classic Fire Island home that we have only rented a few times in the past few years.

What makes this house unique

Fun, fully renovated retro kitchen complete with a Big Chill fridge, fireplace, hardwood floors, renovated, expansive private upstairs suite with bathroom. Don't miss the outdoor shower which gets wonderful late afternoon sun streaming in just as you come off the beach!

Charming! Easy like Sunday morning

  • 5 of 5

I love this house. It has everything you need and is gorgeously appointed to boot. I can see us renting again. The beach is a short walk away and it's so convenient (3min) to the ferry and market. Brad and Ellen were wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend, but I want to keep it to myself!! :)

Excellent rental experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home over Labor Day weekend and found it to be perfect for our family. The house is nicely updated and was very lovingly decorated. You can tell that this is a home used by the owners and not a regular rental home. We love Fire Island and found Seaview to be very intimate where everyone seems to know each other. The community playground that we had access to was a favorite of our kids (ages 6 & 8). I also loved that the house was a short walk to the larger town of Ocean Beach. The owners were very responsive and were very helpful in answering any question that I had before and after arrival to the island. A really great experience!

Owner's Response: Corinne, Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments on our Seaview home. We enjoyed having you and your family as renters -- are are very glad to hear that it was a great week (despite the storm!). Look forward to hearing from you next year. We are hoping to rent 2 weeks in July and 2 weeks in August so if interested, let me know. Kind regards, Ellen

Great rental on beautiful SeaView block

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental for our two families. The house was very clean, with all of the amenities to make a FI stay a great one. Bikes, chairs, etc. Wireless was still out from Sandy as it is on much of the island, but we made due with frequent trips to town. We always are challenged to find rentals with the right bed configurations for two families, and this house had that right mix. The only potential issue for two families renting together is that the master bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom is way nicer than the downstairs room, which could create an issue between two families. We would have rented again if our dates had worked out.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a girls getaway and it was SO lovely. The house is well decorated, and comfortable. The owner has great taste. We were all taking pics for decorating ideas. There was 7 of us, plenty of room. LOVE the outdoor shower. There are a few bikes, we needed one more and that was easy to rent in Ocean Beach. SUPER charming house and Fire Island is idyllic. would love to come back again with family. HIGHLY recommend.
