The Great Escape in a Great Location!

Family fun at the shore
Two story house, with master bedroom with queen bed and two twin beds upstairs, and a downstairs guest bedroom, with a full bed that sleeps two. House was remodeled ten years ago with new siding, roof, windows, ceiling fans and skylights. Wrap around deck surrounds the house with multiple sitting areas for individual privacy while viewing the birds and garden. House has wonderful, powerful outdoor shower next to the storage shed. Indoors, it has one full bathroom with tub and shower downstairs and a half bathroom with toilet and sink upstairs. Kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher and electric oven. Also has three coffeemakers, a microwave, toaster and a variety of blenders. Dining indoors has seating for 8 or you can dine or enjoy lunch outside at the outdoor table which seats 8. Ceiling fans and open skylights provide the house with a breezy feel that beats the summer heat, superior to most air conditioning. Outside a BBQ grill is available for most cooking. We have Dish TV with Netflix and Amazon, a stereo system and high speed FIOS internet. Five adult bikes are also available at the house stored in the shed. Ample linens, towels, kitchen supplies, are available to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Shed has a clothes washer and dryer for laundry use during longer stays. We have a great perennial garden featuring blueberries, seasonal flowers and herbs for your enjoyment from both the front and back decks. We have mint for your mojitos! Typical birds are cardinals, robins, wrens and catbirds and occasionally a hummingbird. The deck also has many flowering pots. Our block is one of the best beach blocks in Ocean Bay Park since we are right next to Seaview and its first short block, making the beach less crowded than most of the beach blocks in OBP. Welcome to our great escape!

5/5 Excellent

An Amazing Getaway
We absolutely loved staying at Frank's. The house is equipped with everything you could need. The outdoor shower is sublime, get the most amazing water pressure, and the hot water lasted through 6 back to back showers. The beach in this part of the island is amazing. Close proximity to ocean beach, we had so much fun going out at the bars there. There is no AC in the house but there are a lot of fans and skylights so the airflow was great, we were never uncomfortably hot at night.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay in Ocean Bay Park
This house was great, with a perfect layout for our group. Very airy and open feeling. Loved the deck and garden which is a magnet for butterflies. 5 minute walk to beach along one of Fire Island's lovely wooden walk ways. Great beach. Easy walking and biking to Ocean Beach and many restaurants.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Week on Fire Island
Frank was extremely helpful and accommodating, and his home was a dream to spend a week in. The kind of place that you’re happy to spend time hanging around in if the weather doesn’t go your way. I hope to visit again.

3/5 Okay

Lovely house but brutal with no a/c in the 90 degree heat
Really nice house perfect for a family (layout does not provide lot of privacy so would be tough for unrelated adults/families to share upstairs). No a/c In house made for a very uncomfortable day/night during extreme heat.

5/5 Excellent

Ocean Bay Park Getaway
Frank met us at the entranceway to his home and graciously helped us bring our belongings in. We arrived a little early and he was able to accommodate us which was helpful. Especially since we have 2 young kids (8 year old twins). Place was very clean and spacious. We liked the loft layout since we were all able to sleep in the same general area yet have space. The kids enjoyed that. Outdoor shower was really nice and powerful. All beach necessities were provided like chairs, umbrellas, towels, games, boogie boards, etc..About a 2 minute walk to the beach - if that. Beach was very quiet at that part of the island which was nice considering the times. We grilled almost every night and it felt like a home away from home - in the middle of nowhere. Washer/Dryer in the shed which was well utilized. We plan to go back again possibly later this summer if we can fit it in. Thanks again for letting your home be our home for a few days!
