Windows on the Sea ★ Modern Pool & Beach Retreat ★ 100 steps to Beach ★ 2 Masters
1800 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Anthony
12 Guests . 5 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms


Wake up to the sounds of the ocean waves and enjoy your coffee overlooking the ocean. End the day with a gentle swim across your personal pool with a window onto the sea. New for 2018 - Modpools pool and hot-tub nestled into an airy 1200 square feet of ocean-view decks soaring 15 feet above the sand. Outdoor wet bar including beverage fridge and ice maker will entice you and the family to relax as the sun sets and the little ones play in the kid-friendly 5-foot depth swimming pool that has 3 panoramic underwater windows looking out at the ocean. Automatic retractable cover provides a safe environment and keeps the water always crystal clear. Outdoor Sonos system will let you enjoy mellow tunes on the deck and in the double-sized, two-headed, open-roof outdoor shower.

Inside, the top floor boasts the "Grand Master" bedroom with walls of glass boasting gorgeous ocean views from your queen size canopy bed, dedicated Sonos speaker system, in-wall a/c and Haiku smart fan. Hiding behind a sliding reclaimed wood panel is an ensuite bathroom with Japanese freestanding soaking tub that awaits you after a long day at the beach. The "Grand Master" ensuite bathroom has a full-size double sink for his and her use.

Your family will be able to relax in the generous living space that includes a 65" 4K smart TV and Sonos sound bar or have appetizers outside on the top deck at the 12 person dining table. The living room is airy and open, with a high, dramatically slanted ceiling with exposed joists, architectural cable-rail staircase and three large sliding glass doors leading to a sunny deck on the top floor. Two cantilever umbrellas mounted on the deck will keep you shaded when the sun gets hot during the day. Right off the living room, the dining area also has an extendable table for 12.

The newly built stainless steel chef's kitchen comes with white quartz countertops and a 64" massive refrigerator and freezer that will allow you to stock up for your stay. Choose to make your meals inside with a professional induction range or outside on the 7 burner Weber grill in our 400sf top deck overlooking the ocean. Ample cooking and baking supplies with utensils are included for your use to make your stay even more home-like. Enjoy hands-free cooking help and music control with the Amazon Echo Show conveniently located on the counter.

When it's time to retire, everyone will be comfortable (sleeps 12). The "Sea Glass Master" bedroom (downstairs) has an in-wall a/c, Haiku smart fan and also has an en-suite bathroom with frameless glass rain shower combined with European hand shower wand above a genuine Fire Island hand-collected, tumbled rock floor.

Additional welcoming 3 bedrooms will let your extended family enjoy the magic of Fire Island within their own space (including 1 queen "Surf Room", 2 twins "Deer Room" and a "Bunk Room" with 4 twins - kids toys & games included). Each room has a Haiku Smart ceiling fan, in-wall a/c, their own individual Sonos speaker system and 4 in-wall USB charging ports for electronics. Masters also have additional dedicated charging stations/alarm clocks on the nightstands. The entire home has Mesh WiFi with 50/50 Fios internet for blazing fast speeds.

No need to fight for the one of the two outdoor showers, as the additional downstairs bathroom with a tub and shower make a great place to rinse the kids off too. A full size LG Washer & Dryer system right off the entry hall will keep your clothes fresh for the summer days ahead.

Getting around is easy as our home is fully equipped with 6 adult beach cruisers (one fat tire bike), 5 children bicycles and an additional 2 child carrier that attaches to a beach cruiser. 12 Tommy Bahama backpack/cooler beach chairs, 12 dedicated quick-dry, sand-free beach towels and 3 beach umbrellas will keep you fully stocked on the sand. Fire Island has no cars in the summer, so the kids can walk and bike safely.

Raising our kids in the city by choice, we wanted them to experience another side of life. No cars. Freedom. Sounds of the waves and fog horns, not sirens and car horns. I travel for work a lot and know how valuable a recharge can be for the mind, body and soul. I've found a place that we can call home when we're not in the city.

Cancellation Policy
We often book months in advance so we are unable to provide a refund unless we rebook the property.
House Rules
• { No smoking or pets/animals} • To preserve our property, we are very strict about our no smoking & no pet/animal policy on the property. There will be a $2,000 fine & Guests will forfeit their deposit and incur actual costs of damages if the property is unable to be booked in its advertised condition or if this policy is violated. We often have allergic guests and we don't want to cause any reactions.
• { Excess Guests } • Please be sure to maintain the maximum registered guest capacity per your rental agreement. Our insurance company requires the agreed upon limits and fees of $500 per additional overnight guest, per night, will apply should this rule be violated.
• { we LOVE our neighbors } • and we want them to "love you too!"...please keep noise to a minimum after 10 PM weekdays & midnight on weekends. Noise carries easily across the island and homes are close together. We may have noise detection devices active to alert us to unusually high volumes. Suffolk County police will and has issued tickets for excessive noise.
• { inclement weather } • During inclement weather it is important to close all windows/doors to prevent any water damage. Winds can get very high quickly and push rain into the home causing property damage.
• { crazy Fire Island plumbing } • Please ONLY FLUSH TOILET PAPER ( i.e. - no feminine products, or face/baby wipes, etc)....although there is new plumbing inside, we have a temperamental septic system that we don't want backing up.
• { please remove your shoes } • so we can keep our place beautiful for you and limit sand tracking. You may use the shoe bins underneath the entry bench to store them.
• { candles } •NO CANDLES as our home is made of wood and we don't want to give Fire Island a reason to justify its namesake.
• { damages } • If something accidentally happens (we understand it happens), please let us know immediately so we can lend a helping hand. Sometimes we have bookings directly after yours and if we know of the damage before you leave we can prepare to fix or replace something immediately :)
• { kids } • we love children! I'm sure this probably goes without saying but please ensure a responsible adult is supervising your little ones at all times. Please take extra precautions to make sure there is no climbing of trees, fences, railings or on any other surfaces not intended for climbing. There is no lifeguard at the pool and it is important that children are closely monitored while on t
