The entire house including six bedrooms are open for use. One bedroom and a couple closets are locked. Access to house is provided via a door code.

Interaction with Guests

Once a signed lease and full payment is accepted, I will email instructions and the code for the front door. We have contractors on the island to help in case there are any minor issues while you are there. I am reachable via text, email and phone during your stay.

The Neighborhood

Ocean Bay Park is one of several small villages on Fire Island and is accessible via the ferries from Bay Shore. A 30-minute ferry ride and you're on an island with no cars; just bikes, flip flops and an occasional golf cart. While other towns can be very restrictive, Ocean Bay Park's beach allows visitors to play music, games and have a great time. A walk or a water taxi can bring you to Ocean Beach for dinner and bar hopping, or the Sunken Forest. The Fire Island Lighthouse is also a good day's beach walk then spend the evening in Kismet for dinner. Ocean Bay Park currently has a market, a deli, pizza shop, two ice cream shops, three restaurant/bars (Schooners, Flynns and Hurricanes). Tennis courts down the street as well as basketball and a playground in Seaview. Bike rentals in walking distance.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
