Fire Island Magic
This was our second summer here and once again we had a wonderful time! Close to town, quiet and 1920s special vibe! Thank you Chuck!!
Good location, last minute rental, some cons
The owner was accomodating on a last minute rental. Pros: House was clean and in a good location, walking distance to beach and town on a quiet street. House was in dated condition from 1920 and is comfortable with AC in every room, satellite tv and wifi. Nice washer dryer lots of towels. Cons were owner is trying to sell house and had interested buyers coming thru house with a broker during our stay. Also bathroom has a ladder going up to an open attic from Bathtub which I was very uncomfortable with. Thankfully there was a nice updated outdoor shower to use and the weather was nice. Lastly the outdoor deck is nice and in back with hammock but there is junk strewn all around the grass surrounding the deck giving it a junkyard feel.
These guests had reservations for Monday thru Friday at a different property and decided they wanted to extend their vacation...they called me about doing a last minute rental at my property...they actually "walked" the entire property before they accepted any reservation..what they call "dated" I call "Original" as clearly defined by the photos and the description. The lease, that they agreed to (one of them is an attorney) clearly states I am allowed to show the property to potential guests or sales situations...I gave them plenty of notice...the Mrs. of the house denied my request to show the property...and told me I had no "right" to show the property ...I should have asked them to leave as they violated the signed agreement we had! I should have kept part of their security for violating the lease agreement...I did not keep a penny!!!
What they called junk in the grass I call firewood..there was one antique pickle barrel I plan on having restored into an end table and a set of antique wooden brackets..I have since removed them. As far as the ladder in the bathub goes..there is no bathtub in the house...there is a shower with an originally built-in wooden ladder which does acess a loft that is no longer in use... I assure there is no one hidding up there!!! They failed to mention I gave them a great deal on a last minute situation when I knew I had them over a barrel... (pickle barrel that is ...LOL)
Conclusion..Some people are just natural complainers..They physically saw the property before they rented it!!!!...they signed the lease!!!..Most of my guests have only good things to say about my property and me...unfortunately not everyone writes a review. Thank you
Great being at Old Ocean Beach
Our family loved this quirky house from the 1930's! Cool,ac'd,plenty of bedrooms, fun living spaces, near town but quiet! Tons of towels, great to use showers as well as washer/dryer! Pictures true to description! Chuck very professional and accommodating! Hope to be back same time next year!
Thank you for your review ... If all my guests were as pleasant as your family it would make my life simple thank you hope to see you next year!!!
Fire Island Getaway
The home is a nice distance between town and the beach and surrounded by quiet neighbors. The deck is out of view from passers by and well set up for grilling and comfortable out-door dining. There are plenty of beach chairs & towels for everyone, which we were glad not to have had to bring from home. The outdoor shower was clean with great water pressure. The home is nicely furnished and we were happy to find that each bedroom had working air-conditioning. The wifi was strong enough to stream favorite shows for teens and keep up with office work. When we forgot an important item, the owner went out of his way to mail it back to us, which we hugely appreciated. We'd be glad to come back!
Once again I am happy to have pleased another family ...it's easy to please mature groups...but when I please a family it makes my day..please book next year early ..thank you
Perfect Beach Getaway!
If you're seeking a clean, convenient beach getaway then look no further! The owner Chuck was super friendly, and very accommodating. When we arrived he showed us the house and left instructions for us as well! There was a cart that we used from the ferry to lug all of our stuff and was ours for the stay which really made the trip more convenient. The house is exactly as depicted in the pictures; 1920's all the way! It was very charming and you could definitely appreciate the history of the house. It was only about an 8 minute walk to the ferry. It is closer to the bay side, but not far from the ocean at all. The highlight of the house was definitely the outdoor shower! We loved showering outdoors, it was cool. There are enough chairs and towels that you don't need to bring your own. There was fresh ice for us, and the fridge was sparkling clean. There was a big cooler outside (we had brought out own but it's nice to know we don't have to next time)-and the BBQ worked great. The deck is great to just hang out on, and the hammock was super comfy. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and REALLY appreciate the owner being so awesome! STAY HERE! We can't wait to go back.
This was an excellent trip for our bachelorette party. There was enough space for 9 girls and availability of chairs/towels and 2 showers topped it all. The owner was easy to talk to and was always available if needed.
To Ocean Beach, a beautiful community and the heart and soul of Fire Island…a barrier island 32-miles long and a quarter mile wide just south and parallel to Long Island. It’s perfect for all ages. Both singles and families. It’s unique character is in its varied restaurants, treasure-laden shops and home-spun galleries. Ocean Beach combines the allure of a resort with a casual atmosphere and the safety of a lost age. Ocean Beach is just an hour from Manhattan and a half-hour ferry ride from Bay Shore across the Great South Bay. Frequent ferries are available for after work getaways, day visitors, vacationers, weekenders and homeowners. From early spring to late fall, jitneys, taxis and the LIRR provide service to and from New York, the airports and Bay Shore. Water taxis provide quick access to other Fire Island communities. As you cross the Great South Bay and enter a wonderful vacation world. Once you arrive in the Village of Ocean Beach, settle in for a casual and relaxing visit. Bordered by the bay and ocean, the town is car free. Getting around means walking or biking to small shops, galleries, restaurants, ice cream parlors, a movie house and the beaches. Gather on the wide quay at sunset, listen to weekly open air concerts, see children sell painted seashells and visit craft fairs showcasing local talent. Hotels and inns are available for weekends or vacations. Stress-free, it’s the place for fun, friendliness and festivity. In Ocean Beach, the ocean and bay combine into a special water paradise. Part of one of the ten great beaches of the world, no radios or Frisbees spoil its serenity. Warm ocean currents make the water inviting early in the summer and long into the fall. On the bay, the Village Marina is a welcome anchorage for boaters. Watersports abound: swimming, fishing, surfing, boating, wind surfing or just lazing in the sun. Ocean Beach has harmoniously blended a thriving mix of homeowners and renters into one community. It has a school up to the sixth grade, houses of worship, fire and police departments, a post office and excellent medical services. Summer camp enriches the lives of children five to twelve with a half-day nursery, full days for older kids and a Counselor-in-Training Program for teens. Families can participate in many activities: water sports, arts, crafts, ecology, soccer, softball, tennis, drama, yoga and aerobics. It’s a safe and care-free summertime…and a great place to raise kids year round. As you dine at our many fine restaurants. Like any community with the unique charm of Ocean Beach, some rules have been developed over time to insure safety, cleanliness and comfort for everyone. Except for emergency and essential services, vehicles are generally not permitted. Bicycle riding in town during the peak season is restricted to make the walkways safe for seniors and small children alike. Eating or drinking on public walkways outside the commercial district is restricted to prevent broken glass and litter on the streets. Eating on the beach is restricted promoting the cleanest beach you’ve ever seen. Whether you come for a day or a lifetime, Fire Island and especially Ocean Beach, will thrill and captivate you. It’s another world!
