About Jan

We bought this property about 17 years ago as we love being near the Ocean. This unit is just perfect. It is within the Seashore Condo Motel and always friendly people around. Its just a few minutes to walk to the beach. No cars on the Island other than emergency vehicles.

Jan purchased this condo in 2000

Why Jan chose Fire Island

So close to the Ocean, boating, shopping. Such a fun place to visit in the Spring, Summer and Fall

What makes this condo unique

Private indoor bathroom and shower. Full size comfy bed and a full size fridge/freezer. We provide all linens and beach chairs, so all you have to bring is your bathing suit! Community use of outside chairs, tables and gas BBQ

Beautiful place to stay in Ocean bay park

  • 5 of 5

From communicating with the owner to checking in & renting bikes from the property manager, our stay at seashore motel was relaxing and so enjoyable ! It's very close to the ferry which was convenient because we had heavy bags. I will definitely stay there again!

Great time!

My husband and I were so excited to have a weekend away from the city life. We are so happy we picked Jan’s place. It’s small, but has everything you’re going to need at FI. Jan was very fast to reply to all my questions. We will definitely stay at her place on our next visit.

Very surprised with the room

  • 5 of 5

I was very surprised at how much amenities that came with the room. Very clean room. Shower stall was small but the outdoor showers made up for it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It's our home away from home that we love to make available to others when we are not using it. We also have to thank Jeff our manager for all he does

Fantastic Weekend on Fire Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here a Fri-Sun in July, and it was perfect. The location is right next to the ferry, restaurants, and a 5 min walk to the beach. I really liked the Ocean Bay Park neighborhood, as it was a 10-15 min walk to the louder neighborhood Ocean Beach, and therefore accessible yet more peaceful.

It rained Friday night, but we had a great time at happy hour drinking rocket fuels anyway. Lots of people out despite the weather. Saturday morning was iffy too, so we rode bikes, as there are plenty of places to rent, including the condo motel. It cleared up by the afternoon, so we were able to take advantage of the beautiful ocean beaches Saturday and Sunday.

The unit itself was great. There's not a ton of room for luggage or extras, so pack light. Honestly though, you don't want to pack a lot for Fire Island anyway; you just need a bathing suit and an outfit for evenings. I did appreciate the full size fridge though, and the hair dryer. The condo motel has a shared outdoor shower, which I took full advantage of. I loved it!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the room. Clean, comfortable bed, full fridge, direct tv, close to the restaurants and grocery as well as the beach of course. Easy and smooth communication with owner and also Jeff who works at the seashore condo and motel was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. Jan has everything you will need including an umbrella which came in very handy for our rainy day! I would and will recommend Jan's place to anyone. Thanks for everything!

Great room,

  • 3 of 5

Everything was great. Jan was helpful and had everything you needed. Lovely working with Jan... Thanks Jan!!! As for the sea shore condo worker Pete or Peter, he was absolutely terrible. I understand we paid for the room through Jan and anything extra wasn't included in the cost (We were prepared to pay extra for whatever needed). I had a late check in which I let both Jan know and called the condo to give them a heads up. From the moment we arrived he rudely took care of us as if we were an inconvenience to him, he acted like no one told him of us checking in and was annoyingly checking the book to see if I was telling the truth. I wasn't looking for 5 star treatment but just common courtesy. Second incident was when we asked for bike rentals which Jan told us to do through the sea shore. Again Pete or Peter rudely assisted us. His whole negative demeanor really ruined our time there as we felt very uncomfortable. I would love to re-book Jans room but Peter or Pete really made it unbearable.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that you felt the manager Peter was rude to you. I spoke with him as well as the owner of the motel with regards to this issue. I believe this is the first complaint he has ever received a and he has seen hundreds of people and dealt with all of their issues. Perhaps it was a misunderstanding or just the very late hour. As far as the bike rental I know the motel does not start a rental so late in the evening for your own safety.
