Lovely Classic 4BR Beach House, Steps from the Ocean

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 9.

Beautiful bright 4-bedroom house, third house from the beach, on a lovely, quiet block. The house sits high on a dune, with partial views of the ocean from the second story.

There are two bedrooms and large bathroom downstairs, as well as a sleeping porch, perfect for reading and afternoon naps. Upstairs is the huge master bedroom, from which you can see the ocean, as well as a second large bedroom with three twin beds (and trundle), great for kids, as well as a bathroom with tub and shower.

This is a perfect, fully equipped family house, with a big back deck for relaxing and dining. There is a large outdoor shower. In front is another, smaller deck, with plenty of seating for friends.

The time of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

What can you say about the most relaxing vacation ever spent....even with Six 16 year girls! We were looking for a place to celebrate my youngest daughters "Sweet 16". We have friends that live year round on Fire Island and asked them about staying for a week. They suggested Ocean Beach and boy were they correct. I'm really not sure how we found the Watts house, but to say we stumbled upon a gem is an understatement!

Priscilla and Derek are wonderful hosts. They met us off the ferry and helped us to their house, which was no easy task with 8 people and enough bags, coolers and gear as if we were moving in.....and we wish we could move in. The house is charming, clean and comfortable, its steps from the Ocean and a nice short walk into a great town with plenty of shops and restaurants. The girls would get up every morning, go to the beach for a few hours, go back to the house for lunch, then back to the beach in the afternoon before heading to town at night. They did this every day for the 7 days we were there. A few even cried when we were leaving because they had such a great time!

Lastly, my wife was recovering from major surgery and this place was just what the doctor ordered. A wonderful week long escape to convalesce. It was as though we were in another country.....and we live on the North Shore of Long Island!

We are planning next years vacation back to the Watts house. A wonderful house, wonderful hosts, wonderful town and wonderful time. We can't wait to get back there!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! You were perfect tenants (even with your gaggle of teenagers!), and you took immaculate care of the place. I'm so glad the girls had such a happy time and that your wife got the rest she so deserved. We'll be very pleased to welcome you back!

We have been renting in Ocean Beach for several years, and this years rental tops them all by far! The house is beautifully decorated, fully stocked and only steps from the ocean. The owner could not have been more accommodating, always accessible to answer question. There is no doubt we will be returning in the near future.

The Watts home was just what the doctor ordered... so close to the beach , comfortable and equipped with everything we could want or need except a cook and a butler : ) My grandson called me the " beach grammy " when he was little because I lived in LI and he lived upstate... this time he brought his baby son to spend the week with his " great beach grammy " or GBG as I am called.. his grandma , my daughter was in 7th heaven at the beach with him and all her sons.. would recommend this home to anyone.. it was a perfect beach house ... The Watts were very lovely and helped with all our questions and needs , we tried to leave it as clean as we found it .. a definite 10 !

True Fire Island Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and really enjoyed our stay. The house is charming, comfortable with an excellent location -- just 3 houses from the beach and a very easy walk/bike into town. You can hear the ocean from many of the rooms and see it from the master bedroom. The photos above are accurate -- house is clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is small and dated, but had everything we needed and met our needs for a beach house rental. The owners were very helpful, accessible and accommodating. All the linens felt new and the pillows were super comfortable -- something we rarely encounter when renting from VRBO. We appreciated the abundance of towels, beach chairs, supplies, bikes, boogie boards, etc. The outdoor shower was particularly lovely -- far preferred to an indoor shower by the entire family. Living there was easy and relaxing. We would definitely rent this home again.

A Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three adult children have been traveling at least three times a year as a family. We have never traveled to the same place twice let alone stayed at the same accommodations. This is the second season we have stayed on FI. The only reason we returned is to stay at this beach house.

You often read or hear "the pictures don't do it justice". I would absolutely say the house is larger, more accommodating with all it's features (the sun porch, large back yard and front sitting porch) and user friendly than any of the pictures show. You can easily walk home from the beach for lunch in three minutes or ride into town, with the house's bikes in five minutes. The house is perfectly maintained as well as clean. The owner was only a phone call or email away.

This was my second year in Ocean Beach. I am a convert!! I will be renting from the Watts' next year! This house is a beach house. It is amazingly comfortable, breezy, and steps from the beach - a far enough from the town that you don't have to worry about weekend revelers. Ideal.
