Gleaming original wood floors with sand-catching sea grass carpeting in the living and dining rooms. Sleeps 7. Lovingly furnished, in immaculate condition, and generously stocked with every amenity to make your stay comfortable and memorable. For further information, call Linda at 415.867.4727.

Enjoy a day at the beach or take a short walk to the village, which faces Great South Bay. There you will find bay-side swimming with lifeguard, bay-front bars & restaurants, grocery stores, ice cream & candy shops, clothing boutiques, hardware stores, nurseries, bicycle rentals, and more.

The town of Ocean Beach has a post office, playground, children's day camp, tennis and basketball courts, softball field, library, cinema, water taxis, and lateral ferries to other Fire Island communities. Catholic and Protestant churches and a Synagogue nearby. Hike to SUNKEN FOREST - a 300+ year-old primeval holly forest east of Ocean Beach and below sea level. An enchanting and magical experience!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a writer and designer for whom Fire Island has been my Holyland since childhood. Prior to purchasing 'SandPauper' in 2004, it had never changed hands. Even though I now live in San Francisco, it remains my place of peace and comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach, NY, USA:
'SandPauper' is one of the few remaining original (unspoiled!) cottages in Ocean Beach. Although comfortable and welcoming, it retains the true character and spirit of 'Old Fire Island.' We have worked hard to preserve its intrinsic quaint charm while also providing all the amenities which allow it to be enjoyed by our seasonal guests.
