About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 8 great sun deck, convenient location

Large, two-story house with 4 bedrooms and tastefully furnished with comfort in mind. The second floor features a large sun deck with bay view and barbeque, large living room and dining room, kitchen, bathroom, and one bedroom. The first floor has three large bedrooms, bathroom with washing machine and dryer, large outdoor shower, and linen closet with bath and beach towels. The house sleeps 8 people comfortably (2 bedrooms have double beds and 2 bedrooms have two twin beds). Each bedroom has two windows with cross ventilation, a closet, dresser and electric fan. The house also comes with two window air conditioners that can be installed in two bedrooms as needed. The kitchen is fully equipped because the home owner loves to cook and entertain. The large living room and dining room are surrounded by windows so there is always a lot of light and cool ocean or bay breezes. A killer sectional couch is perfect for napping. The dining room table opens up and can seat 10. The large sun deck with a tree top view of the bay (and surrounding roofs) is a wonderful place to read and relax and it is perfect place for end-of-the-day cocktails at sunset.

The house is conveniently located. Guests have the calm vibe of Seaview but they are close to the excitement and entertainment of Ocean beach. The beach is 2 1/2 blocks away and the bay is 1/2 block. The center of Ocean Beach is a quick 5 minute walk, and it is even shorter to walk to the Seaview Market and ferry terminal. The house location is convenient to either the Ocean Beach or Seaview ferry terminals.

We would like to rent our house for a total of two weeks during the summer, Monday-Sunday (6 nights). Utilities are included.

Pet friendly.

Seaview is a family community so no party shares.

Because the house is built on stilts and high, it was fortunately not damaged during hurricane Sandy.

About Michael Morrow

My husband bought the house in 1986 after renting and running share houses for many years. I fell in love with Fire Island after working there for three summers. We met in Ocean Beach and fell in love 25 years ago. After 20 years of marriage, there is still no place we would rather spend our summer weekends and vacations. Our daughter feels the same way. It is a magical place.

Great House with Beautiful View of the Bay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home and were extremely comfortable. The house is conveniently located, a few blocks from the town of Ocean Beach and a short walk to the beach. The owner was a true delight to rent from. The house is open and airy and has two levels. The upstairs is the main living space; kitchen, living and dining areas, half bathroom and one bedroom. The deck is directly off the kitchen and has beautiful views of the bay and the surrounding area.The downstairs has 3 spacious bedrooms, a large full bath plus the washer/dryer. The house was extremely clean and well equipped with everything we needed plus!!

Lovely Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderfully-outfitted, and the owners are a joy to work with. They use the home most of the time, so they are more involved than some owners. This may be off-putting to some, but we enjoyed meeting them ahead of time (a day at the beach, margaritas in the afternoon, etc). If you want an anonymous/distant rating experience, this is not for you. The house itself is very comfortable, good quality supplies, nice kitchen, working bicycles, comfortable bedrooms (with quality linens, etc). 5-min walk to either Ocean Beach or Seaview & 10-min to the beach. Only downside is that the deck is smallish (relative to FI properties) and in the sun most of the time; the one sun-umbrella is not enough for the afternoon. The inside, however, remained cool, no matter how hot it got. The bedrooms are on the first floor, shaded by the living area; and the living area is above other properties with great cross-ventilation. We loved our time there (2 weeks)!

Car: not necessary

The Seaview is a beautiful and peaceful residential community in close proximity to the bustling commercial village of Ocean Beach, which has many restaurants, bars, shops, a post office, bakery, and a day camp. The bay, beach and Seaview Market are nearby. Seaview's tennis courts, playground, baby pool, and bay 'beach' are about 10 blocks from the house. Fun and scenic day trips include the Fire Island Lighthouse and the Sunken Forest, both reachable via long walks on the beach or by water taxi from Ocean Beach. Fire Island is also a great place for bike riding and bird watchings.
