Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

4 BR cottage, steps away from the ocean

Our little house built in 1925 is perfect for a quiet vacation... or a writer's retreat. Our home, secluded by dense foliage, gives privacy and silence that is only punctuated by the music of the changing tides and the birds' call. Be inspired: Maurice Sendak wrote 'Where the Wild Things Are' while summering in this house!

There are 4 bedrooms - 1 queen size bed, 1 full size bed, 2 rooms with 2 single beds. There are 1 1/2 baths plus a glorious outside shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a grill for outside dining on the deck. This is not a rental home, but our family home that we rent out only for a brief period every summer.

Wonderful, traditional, Seaview house

  • 5 of 5

This Seaview house has lots of character and just steps from the beach. The house, which dates from the '20s, is filled with books and has a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. Unlike some older houses, it is very bright. The location is fantastic, being just one house from the beach. Also, the house has an unusual amount of open space around it. The owner provided lots of bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. and the kitchen facilities were great. This is clearly a much loved home rather than a dedicated rental property.

This part of Seaview is very quiet, but is close to the bustle and facilities of Ocean Beach.

We wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again.

About Deborah Belford de Furia

I have been coming out to Fire Island since I was a child in the early '70's. Now my children enjoy Fire Island summers. Even though we live in Italy, we make the trip back to the beach every summer. It is our paradise.

Deborah Belford de Furia purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Deborah Belford de Furia chose Seaview

This house was passed down to us by my mother. It is our home and we cherish it. It is a true, cozy beach cottage. We wouldn't want any other house.

What makes this cottage unique

The beach is literally 100 steps from our front door. No cars. A place where everyone can roam free safely. enjoy the beach morning and night with others who share the same love of peace and quiet and nature.

Seaview is a warm, family community. The beach is steps away... and the bay provides lovely sunset swimming. There is a small, but well-stocked market, a bay beach with a baby pool, playground and basket ball court, tennis courts and a baseball diamond. It is a short walk from Ocean Beach for restaurant dining, shops and ice cream.
