About Nonda Volpe

I have been a long time fire islander and have spent every summer out in Fire Island since 1963. I work in NYC as a child psychologist.

Nonda Volpe purchased this house in 1998

Why Nonda Volpe chose Ocean Bay Park

My house is perfectly situated between the bay and the Ocean and is down the block from Flynns, the grocery store and the Fire Island Hotel.

What makes this house unique

This house was built in 1901 and was lovingly restored over the past 17 years.

Fire Island
Car: not necessary

Fire Island is truly a very unique place, located off the shores of Long Island with the Great South Bay on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. It is an hour drive from mid-town Manhattan but is a world away! 70% of this 32 mile long island is natural seashore and undeveloped. There are 17 different communities on the island (some are reachable by bike, others either by walking along the beach or hiring a water taxi). Beautiful white sand Atlantic beaches and the Great South bay make this the perfect summer getaway. Ocean Bay Park is a very laid-back, barefoot community with 4 restaurants, a hotel and local grocery store. It is a 20 minute walk (or 10 minute bike ride) to the much larger village of Ocean Beach which has many shops, stores, bars and restaurants. Fire Island and Ocean Bay Park in particular is the 'anti-hamptons' and is low key and unpretentious.

Great & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully maintained house with old style beach charm. Right by market, restaurants, poolside bar, and nightlife. So close to beach can easily do bathroom visits. Includes bicycles which allows for easy access to Ocean Beach which is main town. The house has a great backyard with BBQ with plenty of room to relax. This is a great place for families. Also allows pets.
