This house is truly a "Beach House"!

  • 5 of 5

This house feels like you're inside a lighthouse. It's what a "Beach House" should be. Everything you need or want at your finger tips and you're steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We had two small children and they always had something to do. Beth (the owner) was so helpful. She was always making sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this charmer to anyone and everyone!

Best Family Rental on Fire Island

  • 5 of 5

We have rented five houses on Fire Island (four of which were in Seaview) and Beth's house was by far our favorite. The first question is which town to rent in, and Seaview easily wins for a family- great facilities (playground, bay beach, tennis courts, baseball/softball fields), the best kept beach, best market and best combination of access to Ocean Beach restaurants/stores and quiet. Within Seaview, Beth's house ticks all of the boxes for us- clean, well located (perfect distance to beach and market- the two places you'll go to most frequently) , friendly/quiet/respectful neighbors, airy, cool design. Fully stocked kitchen and beach supplies. Beth was a thoughtful and responsive host. Really perfect. We will visit again.

Beautiful Home on a great street in Fire Island!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a beautiful example of Fire Island architecture. The 2nd level living/kitchen area is octagonal with FOUR decks with screened doors to allow for unlimited flow of sea air. The kitchen is large and easy for multiple chefs to move around. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and everyone had an amazing week. Its steps from the beach and you cant help but be relaxed and refreshed after time spent in this home!

Love This Place

We've stayed here for 2 years and we're going back this summer for our third year. This place is the perfect family beach house. Comfortable, airy and all of the necessities of beach life are there.

A Fire Island Treasure- Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this house enough! My family of 6 has stayed here several times over the years and we hope to continue going back. This house is perfectly located, family friendly, well kept, and homey. The Seaview Ferry drops you blocks away from the house. The local market is a quick bike ride away. Ocean View is easy to get to as well. The beach is right down the path. The kiddie swimming pool & playground are seconds away. Need I say more? This beach house doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like it's my house with all of the perks of hotel and then some. Outdoor shower, bikes for all, a grill on the porch.....Really, all you need to bring are your clothes. There is so much charm here. It's certainly a Fire Island classic.
