About the Property
4 BR cottage, steps away from the ocean
Our little house built in 1925 is perfect for a quiet vacation with family or friends... 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.

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.
Year Purchased: 1972
About: 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.
Why Seaview, Fire Island, NY, USA:
This house was passed down to us by my mother. It is our home and we cherish it. It is a true, cozy beach house. We wouldn't want any other house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
