Growing up in Brooklyn was a wonderful experience. I just stepped out of my house, and my block was filled with kids ready to play, and everyone was included. It was a simple but wonderful childhood. That is what Fire Island feels like to me. A simple, care-free, stress free place to get away for the summer.
cindy Rafeld purchased this cottage in 1989
In 1986 when my husband and I were first married we decided to take a half share in a group house in Ocean Beach with our friends. We knew immediately that Fire Island was a unique place, and that it was where we wanted to spend summers for the rest of our lives. Two years later we purchased our home and have spent our summers there ever since. There is no experience that could compare for my children. Summers on Fire Island is what we waited for, and we counted the days all winter long. The freedom, the relaxed and safe environment, the friendships. Where else are children free to go to the movies with their friends, or to the grocery store on their on, or ride their bicycles to a friends house at a young age? Once the island gets into your blood you never want to leave but now that my children are grown and we all work full time we have decided to rent the house for 4 weeks.
Our home is conveniently located close to town and the bay so to walk to the playground, shops and restaurants is a hop, skip and jump away. The beach is 2 short blocks.
Our home was completely gutted after hurricane Sandy so EVERYTHING in the house is 1 year old. It is a sun filled ranch with an open concept. It is just a feel good house.
From the moment you step onto the ferry heading to Ocean Beach you feel like you are on vacation! Ocean Beach is an incorporated village on Fire Island that offers an amazing nightlife, numerous restaurants, ice-cream parlors, and shops. Perfect for singles or families, it accommodates everyones needs. Ocean Beach is car free, and everything is within walking distance so it is a beautiful and safe town where children can run free. Some summer activities include concerts, an adult and children's art fair, day camp, fishing, water activities, bicycle riding, tennis, and the most gorgeous sunsets. There is even a movie house that caters to kids and families needs. Water taxis are available to visit other parts of Fire Island. A casual, fun, friendly and stress free place for a summer vacation!
