"To start with the wonderful Palace people - Debbie and Elliot were super responsive, answered every question, and ensured that our week was nothing less than amazing.
I have been boating the GSB and visiting Kismet since I was a kid. I have rented houses for the past 5 years. Not to say I know all, but staying at the Palace was my best 5 days on Fire Island.
We will be coming back- why? You get the best views - ocean, lighthouse, and sunset. This is hard to come by! Location - this is probably underrated. 2 houses from the ocean is so key - easy lunch/ sun/ bathroom breaks. And in need of an outdoor shower - you got it! Jump on a bike and you are less than 5 minutes from the bay. Amenities- the Palace offers everything you need. Being a little bit of a beach chair snob, you have 10+ high quality beach chairs. Umbrellas, beach toys, bocce, every beach activity is all there. The house - the common area is surrounded by a wrap around deck and so perfect for a friends/ family getaway. The kitchen has everything you need (with 2 awesome grills on the deck). Every bedroom is so comfortable - AC, TV (if needed), and plenty of space. On cool nights, jump in the hot tub and enjoy the night!
Kismet, in my opinion, is the best town on Fire Island. It strikes the right balance of people, things to do, nature, bars/restaurants. The Kismet Palace brings this wonderful place up another notch and is a paradise getaway.
Thanks Debbie, Elliot, and the Kismet Palace."
