Holiday Rentals in United States

Just booked in Fire Islands

45 secs to beach. Spacious, clean, well suited for groups and families. BBQ, Outdoor shower, Hardwood floors, lots of light. 3 minutes from the ferry/ restaurants, but on a quiet street. new mattresses, appliances, etc. $4500/ week (Fri to Fri) Weekends Fri to Sun are $3000 Mid weeks are $2700
The mid spaced outdoor porch is fantastic. (chairs, BBQ, table etc) Open to the stars and sun, but no neighbors can look in! I'm willing to make a deal last minute or off season! Please note: this is an older beach house that gets a lot of traffic during the season. If you are expecting the 4 Seasons, you will be disappointed! The vast majority of folks absolutely love the casual, no frills, vintage feel. There are some folks (luckily just a very few) who spend their time looking for faults. If this is how you roll, do us both a favor and check into a hotel! Mattresses, for example, are new and foam. They are thinner than traditional mattresses but super comfy. We chose to use mattresses that are mold resistant (it's a beach environment). We also don't want to get the cheap Sam's Club mattresses that will off gas toxic fumes. We try to use green products to minimize the impact on the environment. We all know they work with certain limitations. Porch boards rot during the season, screens rip. We do the best we can to keep it up during a heavy renting season, but unlike where most of us live normally, there are NO stores or Home Depot's just around the corner, so the level of response is sometimes slower than it would be back on the mainland. I invite people to go out and see the house (or the video) before booking because I take seriously the positive experience of my guests. But you also need to keep your expectations in check! Years and years of fantastic experiences from renters, from single folks to college friends to families with small kids to retirees. This house is really unique and folks from all over the world have stayed here. If your friends would characterize you as uptight and extremely particular (and unable to be cured by some serious relaxing beach time) please don't rent this house! If , however, you are cool and relaxed and realistic, please come and enjoy the hell out of a great house right near the beach. Out the front steps to the right for a 2 minute walk is a private dock where you can catch a blood red sunset before heading back to dinner. I am apologizing for complicated pricing scheme. It confused me too. In short, here's the deal: I rent by the week in the high season (July and Aug). I need to net $3950. Airbnb adds their commish. Pre and post season Iower the price from $3950 and don't require a full week rental. Typically, July and Aug weekends (Fri to Sun) would run $2600 if they are available and it makes sense to me to do it. Airbnb doesn't have the flexibility to handle this type of pricing model so I'm in a position of either putting in a lower rate to reflect a daily price based on a week (and confusing folks when they only want 2 days and it's much higher than they saw) OR putting in the weekend rate ($1300/ night) and scaring week renters away with a ridiculously high week price. Sorry for the confusion! Here's a summary, I think: Summer weeks are $3950 (Fri to Fri) Summer weekends are $2600 (Fri to Sun) Summer midweeks are $2600 (Mon-Fri) pre /post season weekends are $1500-$2000 (Fri to Sun) Pre post season nights are $600-$750 Have I totally confused ya? Sorry if so!.
It's a quiet neighborhood. The house is less than a minute to the ocean and you can hear it all night! So awesome. It's a special, unique place designed in the 60's to support entertaining! It's sort of bare bones in terms of what we supply, but that helps keep the cost down. The full list of what we supply and what you should bring is in the contract you get when you book. Happy to share some of that before hand if you want.
  • We rented Wally's house for a week with two other families. It's on a great block at the end of Kismet, close to the Ferry and one block from the beach, making it very convenient. The layout of the house is nice for families since the kitchen and living area is separated from the bedrooms by the upper deck, so one group can sleep while others hang out. Wally was great and communicative, and a gracious host, even leaving a bottle of wine for us and checking in to make sure we were covered with gas for the grill and other details. We did have a few issues. The house itself is not as clean and well kept as the pictures show. Having stayed at many houses across Fire Island for more than a decade, my expectations are never high - it's the beach, after all - but we found mice droppings in the "Love Shaque" side bedroom, the dishwasher was broken, there were few kitchen amenities - no kettle and a single dish cloth - and the AC unit in one bedroom was broken. The house also feels a bit old and broken - missing doors in the bathroom cabinets under the sink, a pile of junk on the lower deck, and a bunch of broken deck chairs. I guess we were expecting a Kismet family house but it's more bachelor-pad party house. All things considered, we enjoyed our week, got along well with Wally and didn't let the details get in the way of a great time.

    Alex2015-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house was great, Kismet is truly magical. Wally was always available and responded to all questions promptly. Had a wonderful time!

    Ivo2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wally was attentive and nice. The house was beautiful and most peaceful. Its a very quiet space. Don't expect any parties. Family all the way.

    Brandon2015-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a picture perfect weekend at Wally's home. The house has so much character and is ideal for a group of friends getting together, with a lot of space and privacy but also outdoor common areas that really give the feel of a beach weekend. We loved the outdoor shower (there are also two other bathrooms with showers in the house) and the fact that we kept seeing deer wandering around the narrow little walkways around the house. We were just steps from a beautiful, quiet, fine-sand beach and with the windows open at night could hear the waves crashing. Kismet is lovely. Everyone there is so friendly and we felt very welcomed at the local bar just up the road where we played lots of pool. During the day when we weren't at the beach, we took a walk a few streets over to neighboring Saltaire and loved the boarded walkways. The second night we were able to easily get a ferry to another part of the island for dinner. We also liked that it was easy to have groceries delivered by ferry from the Shop Rite in Bay Shore, but could also grab things we needed from the little store around the corner. Wally gave us great advice for how to best enjoy our stay and checked in to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We can't say enough about this spot, it was everything that we had hoped for.

    Erin2015-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Wally's Motel-O. We loved it the first time and this time was even better. Wally has made several major improvements including a brand new deck and the addition of a cool retro fireplace. Motel-O is spacious, has plenty of amenities, was very clean, and it is near the beach. What else could you ask for?

    Ian2016-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful Labor Day weekend at Wally's. The house was great and there was plenty of room for everyone. The outdoor deck is the best part as well as the close proximity to the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Wally was very responsive with any questions we had and checked in regularly to see if we needed anything. All in all it was a great experience for me and my family.

    Katie2016-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wally was a wonderful host - attentive, friendly, and accomodating. Not being familiar with the area, he told us where to go out to eat, the ferry schedule, where to go for the best sunset. He was also kind enough to let us stay all day Sunday since no one was coming to take the house that day. The house was clean, spacious, and excellent for groups - all the rooms connected to one another, and there were two outdoor spaces perfect for eating and hanging out outside. The indoor kitchen space was great, complete with a wood burning stove, full kitchen, and two bathrooms. The beach was gorgeous, the walk from the ferry was short, and we had a really wonderful time. Look forward to working with Wally and staying at Motel-O again next year!

    Gina2014-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great home in a perfect location to the beach and ferry. Wally was wonderful in answering questions and really was interested in making our trip as special as possible. The house itself is an authentic fire island beach house with fun details and lots of room to spend time with friends. The outdoor shower really gives it an extra touch. We can't wait to come back!

  • We are in love with Fair Harbor! We can not wait to come back and the house just added to the character and charm of this amazing place! Loved the patio and out door shower!

    Mary Lynn2016-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A bit on the funky side but all of charm. Great location in the center of Fair Harbor. owner was very nice and helpful. Not for those who like everything super neat and tidy.

    Olivier2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location , very cute house. Very disappointed by the cleanness of the house, but airbnb eventually found an agreement for us with our host.

    Marie2016-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at Michael's place. The location is perfect. Just a short walk from the ferry, a quiet area of the beach and a supermarket. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the deck and grilling. I would definitely go back!

    Hannah2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Michael was extremely helpful in helping me and my friends get onto Fire Island from Manhattan. We decided to go during off season so that there would be more privacy and quietness, but that also calls for less frequent ferry rides and restaurant and groceries not being open. Food wise, please plan ahead! Otherwise, the house was so charming for little dinner parties and get together with friends.

    DJiun2016-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • It's great location. It has a great deck w a great barbecue grill. It is a little unkempt, with some spiders. It is a cute beach house. It had only 2 bikes but listing said 5, and the chain fell off one. Working bikes would make this better.

    Pamela2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • House was perfect for a girls weekend getaway. 5 minute walk to the beach, less than 5 minute walk to the ferry and water taxi. Very cool outdoor shower. House could use some mild sprucing up and renovations but overall I would rent this house again.

    Kelsey2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Michael is a great host, really relaxed and laid back, and very helpful. The place is exactly as described, also laid back and beach shack-y. It's got a great vibe- hammock in the back, great books on the shelves, eclectic decor.

    Just one house in from the beach, this bright airy house is comfortable and enjoys ocean views. Great upstairs deck, and windows on all sides. Four bedrooms with beds that can be configured as two twins or one king. Good deals available in June and September. This listing rents for whole midweeks only, which run Monday mornings to Friday afternoons.
  • Rebecca was a great host, and she would respond to any questions we had immediately.

    Arch2016-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house, great weather, truly steps to the beach. The pictures do not do it justice, it is a very pleasant, relaxing gracious place to spend time with family (and a few extra kids for good measure). Rebecca provided us with a great orientation letter and the house has everything: towels, bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, and deck furniture and umbrellas. We loved eating outside! I am hoping to stay here many times in the future! Rebecca was always very responsive to any questions.

    Nancy2015-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Rebecca was very responsive to our questions. She left very good information for directions and a smooth entry. We took a lovely ferry ride from Bay Shore to Fair Harbor for a quiet 4 weekday stay. We were prepared with good food to eat, brought in parcels that were easily transferred to Rebecca's wagon. A short boardwalk stroll through beautiful foliage, with birds and deer families along the way. Rebecca's home is located very close to the beach of nice sand and moving skies. Surprisingly, we were on the tail end of Hurricane Hermine circling the skies and we still came home with nice color. Her outdoor deck provided a wonderful way to ease into the morning and afternoon sunshine- a place for yoga, exercises and reading while sipping morning coffee. The beds were comfortable, there is a strong and warm outdoor shower, a bright and cozy living room space, games to play, TV to watch ( we preferred watching the windows framing the ocean activity), a very nice dining space with cross ventilation and a very workable kitchen. We used the four bikes to ride to the lighthouse and to Kismet. We watched the night sky from the beach steps, the stars, the planes, the sweeping clouds. For some groceries there is a market open in the early hours of the day until early afternoon.

    Beverly2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed mid-week (Mon-Fri) and our overall experience was fantastic. The house is in a great location, just steps from the beach, and the size is perfect for a family or small group. The house was also very clean and well-maintained and has everything needed to enjoy your trip - grill, bikes, beach chairs, etc. It was the perfect place for a low-key, relaxing beach vacation. Rebecca was very accommodating, responsive and a pleasure to communicate with. It was our first trip to Fire Island and she provided us with all the information we needed for our trip. The house exceeded our expectations and we would stay there again.

The first floor of the house has 3 bedrooms, kit, living rm, dining rm and a large front and back deck with out door shower. . You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, it is about 100 ft from the beach.. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
  • Great and relaxing getaway. The upstairs room and balcony were terrific, and the location is steps from the beach. Great host, easy to communicate with, and highly recommended.

    Augusto2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, nice woman, beautiful area. Highly recommended.

  • Susan was an amazing host and has a beautiful light filled space. The deck is gorgeous and you can see the ocean. Great location, great communication from Susan. She let us use the kitchen and her TV and DVDs and was all around a great and generous host.

    Chelsea2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's place is absolutely wonderful! The picturesque view from the second floor balcony is fantastic and you are literally four houses from the beach. Susan was extremely clear and helpful with her communications. The house has everything you could need from bicycles to beach towels. We enjoyed our stay so much and would highly recommend this airbnb to anyone else who is interested in visiting Fire Island!

    rosemary2017-07-02T00:00:00Z

    New construction home in Fair Harbor, Fire Island, steps to the beach (6 houses in from ocean). The house is solar-energy based, and engineered to utilize the latest in green and sustainable energy efficient standards. There are no cars on Fire Island - but we are very close to everything the town has to offer. About a 5 minute walk from the Ferry dock, Jean-Georges' new 'Le Dock' restaurant and bar, Pioneer Market, and Corliss general store.
    The third bedroom can be used as a stand-alone en suite unit - perfect for a single person or a couple. The bed is up a flight of stairs and there are great views of the bay/sunset from the elevated sleeping area. There is a living space with a couch that can fold out into a bed. The full bathroom includes a spacious walk-in shower (no bath tub). This en-suite bedroom can be rented by itself or along with the entire home. This space has a private entrance/exit. There is an outdoor shower with a bench on the large back deck. A brand new Webber BBQ, outdoor dining set with umbrella. Please note that the house is raised on wood piles (as is standard beach house construction on Fire Island), and the long sloping ramp is ADA-compliant & handicap accessible.
    No cars, no shoes, no problem! Fair Harbor is a barefoot community and the standard mode of transport is a bike (we have plenty for you to use). Fair Harbor is a seasonal beach community located at the western end of Fire Island. Many of the homes have been passed down from generation to generation. Most houses were built in the 1970s, but few of the homes date back to the 1940s. The town has a strong summer rental market, with most houses renting for the entire summer season or by the month.
  • The Fair Harbor house is wonderful, central air(we didn't even need to use as the windows and doors create a perfect cross breeze) If you want shade or sunshine, there is a spot on the deck to sit and enjoy at every time of day. The outdoor shower is wonderfully done. The house was clean and so comfortable. Every detail in a home is there, even dimmable lighting. We completely enjoyed our stay. Sunsets are enjoyed by the entire community down by the ferry dock with your favorite drink. The ocean is a quick 1 minute walk. Beach chairs provided. The Monarchs migrate across fire island this time of year so we had a wonderful show of nature. Perfect place to read a book, host some friends for dinner, relax with your feet up. We couldn't have expected more and look forward to another stay.

    Fair Harbor Fire Island, NY, United States

    View of the Harbor! Only inquire if you are traveling with kids! Little sunny room with two twin beds and gorgeous harbor view. A/C in this room!
    If you've visited Fair Harbor, you know the big yellow house next to the post office. And if you have been to Fair Harbor with kids, you know that they dream of being right in town! Our kids love being right in town -- they love the freedom of running in a pack to get ice cream or pizza or candy, or to look for hermit crabs at the bay. And there are always other kids around with this share, so there is always a way to feel independent while vacationing as a family. The Yellow Room offers two comfy twin beds and a gorgeous harbor view. Wake up looking out at the waves and boats! Space for a twin mattress.
    Fire Island is a PARADISE just 1.5 hours from the city. You can take the train and the ferry or drive to the ferry. What you can't take is your car! And that's why Fair Harbor is a paradise for families. Your kid can run around without any worry about cars or nefarious doings. There's just one restaurant, just one pizza shop, one place to get ice cream and candy, one wine shop and one grocery store. Deliveries from Long Island fish shops and grocery stores are also available.
  • Kids R Us is a great share house very near the Fair Harbor dock, ice cream store and general store. The Yellow room has two twin beds, a bureau, and a small open closet containing a single air mattress, which might be placed either between the two beds or near the closet for a third person. Window unit for air conditioning, but you can't open the window. There is one bathroom upstairs among four bedrooms, and another bathroom downstairs. Large comfy living room, dining room and kitchen. Mitch is a great host, full of knowledge and enthusiasm about Fair Harbor, and Fire Island in general. The house is organized well as a share regarding linen, towels, refrigerator space and bicycles. Come loving island life and simple pleasures, and enjoy meeting other parents and children! Fire Island is a magical place, as is Fair Harbor, and the house, with its large back deck and proximity both the beach and bay, makes for a wonderful stay!

    Natasha2016-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fair Harbor is the best place on Earth for families with kids! They run around all day with all the other kids, no cars, and a visit to the candy shop or Wednesday night movies remind us of how life's small pleasures are the most important to them. Little wooden sidewalks, bay beach quiet or ocean beauty, this is heaven!

    Evelyn2015-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it! It was exactly what we wanted. Not fancy, but who needs fancy at the beach?

    tia2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay, the location is perfect, and Mitch was a wonderful host.

    Eliz. & Stefan2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • We just loved our time on Fire Island, and Mitch was a wonderful and very welcoming host. He gave us lots of great information about the island. We ended up staying in the Green Room instead of the Yellow, and it was spacious for our family of 3. The house is very close to the dock where the ferry comes in so you don't have to walk far with your luggage and also close to the grocery store/restaurant/ice cream shop etc. and bay side beach, which is very shallow and great for young kids. We had a great time at the house and hope to come back some day.

    Sandra2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a great time on our first visit to Fire Island. That was thanks in part to Mitch’s hospitality: He truly enjoys being a host and introducing people to the Island; he’s full of information about it that’s helpful for first-time visitors. His accommodations are perfect for families with children – our two kids were quite happy there (plenty of games, beach toys, and bikes for them to play with), and we know they’re eager to visit again. Also worth noting the excellent location, right next to the ferry dock, market, playground, and restaurant. We’ll be back as soon as we’re able.

    Michael2016-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Mitch is a generous and enthusiastic host. Fire Island is a dream. We hope to be back.

    Daniel2017-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time and highly recommend Mitch's place! Super laid back vibe and very friendly and welcoming housemates. Very comfy beds and AC made the room perfect. What's more, my son had instant playmates and didn't want to leave. What a great and full experience. Definitely recommend for those traveling with kids!

  • PERFECT! The perfect weekend getaway! Super close to the ferry and with all the fixins of home. It was clean and quiet and everyone in the neighborhood was so delightful and helpful. Definitely stay with Warren and be dazzled by the quiet solace, have so much fun at the beach, listen to the waves crash, share cheese and wine with your neighbors at sunset over the bay, walk to the beach in 2 minutes or the bay in 2 seconds, eat delicious food that you cooked or cooked for you. The deer walk right up to you, we saw dolphins swim by in the ocean, ran around with different dogs and had the perfect time. It was too hard to come back to NYC!!

  • Was super nice

    Amanda2016-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • As I recall, it was a beautiful sunny day on Monday 8/22. The walk to the house from the ferry was lovely and the kids were excited. We walked passed the house and had to back track, eventually we came upon the house. It was the only house that appeared to have a front door with a broken window, that was patched together with masking tape in an effort to hide a gaping hole. The backyard patio area was filled with rusted dirty chairs accompanied by cob webs. The plastic table cloth on the patio table was crumpled and hanging off to one side of the table, it was wet,covered in mud with pockets of puddles. Coincidentally, the back door had a broken window that had also been covered with masking tape. There were various seasonal shoes and towels scattered about. The back yard was unkempt, dirty and uninviting. The kitchen floor was sticky with every step. The refridgerator was filled with rotting food and opened condiments. The inside of the refrigerator looked as though it had not been properly cleaned in a very long time. The utensils that were in various drawers and stored throughout the cupboards were greasy. While preparing a meal, a fork from the drawer appeared to have dried spaghetti sauce on it. A small chicken carcass covered in aluminum foil was discovered in the oven. The microwave was caked with dried coffee, sauces and crumbs. The downstairs bedrooms bed's were stripped and the mattresses and pillows were stained and discolored from age, food or both. There was a stack of what appeared to be "clean" sheets and towels on a bureau. Many of the towels and sheets were folded wet. I was able to find a dry fitted sheet and attempted to make the beds on the lower level. I lifted up the mattress to tuck the fitted sheet properly and discovered a bag of Doritos, a discarded lollipop and a melted candy bar half eaten. All the first floor bedrooms and living room cushions had assorted discarded food wrappers and crumbs under the mattresses and cushions. The upstairs mattresses and pillows were stained, with more wrappers but less food. There were many spiders and cob webs. The bathroom was damp and musty. The rugs did not look like they had been cleaned in decades until my husband actually cleaned one of the mats himself in a desperate attempt to stop the smell. The toilet bowl plunger had to be used frequently as the toilet water would rise to the top. The shower door was faulty and water leaked through the door every time someone took a shower. The cleaning crew consisted of 1 nice man who at first, wasn't sure how much he could do as they had already cleaned it once before. I was told that there over 20 -30 people who were guests at the house the week before. I described my findings and he advised me not to look any more,...

    Jay2016-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in Fair Harbor. Excellent location. Quick walk from ferry and to the Market. Fully loaded with everything you need. I spent Labor Day weekend there and the house is exactly as described. Bikes , beach chairs , outside deck with grill, and outdoor shower. The house was clean and was overstocked with almost everything you need. Very convenient. The host was excellent. I was a bit worried when I read the previous review, but that review made no sense after staying at the house. Screens were not ripped and the place was very clean. The fridge was empty and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

    This cozy beach house is located just a few steps from the beach on one side and the bay on the other. Open floor plan with living room, dining space, and full kitchen. 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, front and back porches, and bicycles for your use! Large back deck has an outdoor shower, fully enclosed washer/dryer, gas grill, and a dining table.

    This is a full house that you will have all to yourselves during your stay.

    Fire Island is only accessible by boat or by ferry. The ferry ride to Fair Harbor takes 30 minutes from the ferry terminal in Bayshore, Long Island. Fair Harbor is a quiet, friendly, and fun-loving beach community with restaurants, grocery, a general store, and ice cream! Make sure to head down to the ferry dock with a glass of wine to watch the sun set with your neighbors.
  • Josh's home was super comfortable and relaxing. It has everything you will need for an amazing retreat on Fire Island. You can bike to the lighthouse or take a sandy hike to Ocean Beach. The outdoor shower is awesome! I highly recommend Josh's place.

    Jenn2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Josh's house was a very nice, peaceful retreat. The only complaint I have is there was some pet hair on the bed sheets, so we had to wash the sheets upon arrival. Josh was very easy to communicate with. Overall, a very good experience and would definitely return.

    Joanna2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a true gem of Fair Harbor, located on a quiet street. Well-maintained, the house is clean and comfy and has everything one needs for a stay at the beach, including bikes to get around. Josh was very easy to communicate with and prompt to respond. Highly recommend.

    Patricia2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Josh's beach house was absolutely amazing. A very quiet beautiful area with a huge back deck that was great for grilling and dinners! A 2 minute walk to the ocean and the house was stocked with everything you would need for the beach... chairs, towels etc. A short water taxi ride away from bars and restaurants. Josh also couldn't have been more helpful and responsive when we had questions. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!

    Sam2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Needs a little work to improve day to day maintenance but otherwise a lovely, sweet place, close to the bay and the beach in a quiet area. Josh is incredibly responsive.

    Our home is a great place to relax and enjoy the beach. There are 3 bedrooms: queen bed with ceiling fan, queen bed with ceiling fan, two twin beds with ceiling fan). There's a nice, private back deck, an equipped kitchen, wifi. There's no tv or AC.
    Charming 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom house located steps to the ocean—the perfect spot for a great beach vacation!
    Fair Harbor is a wonderful community that comes together each evening on the dock to watch the spectacular sunsets! Fair Harbor offers plenty to do—fishing, sports, boating, swim and sailing lessons, surfing, clamming, climbing the lighthouse, boogie boarding—or nothing, if relaxing on the beach is more your speed.

  • We are returning guests to Jane's wonderful home which is located just a few houses away from the ocean. The house is very comfortable and very well equipped. We spent a great week!

    Jamie2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic week at the cottage! It was just as described (maybe even nicer than the pictures). Also, the location was amazing. Jane made everything easy and we felt very welcome. We definitely want to come back!

    Jamie2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • This house is magic! It is in a perfect location - steps to the spectacular ocean beach, a few more steps to the gorgeous bay and the ice cream shop. The house is cozy and comfy, with warm and friendly vibes and everything you need for a fabulous beach vacation. We spent every morning biking, every day at the beach, and every evening on the beautiful back deck. Jane was an excellent host, so responsive and helpful, and we would love to come back!

    Rose2016-07-11T00:00:00Z

    Sanford2015-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • great house - close to beach and still close to the dock, restaurant and grocery store. back yard is very private. awesome outdoor shower :) would recommend to friends and family

    Tammy2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach cottage especially if you have kids. Owner super easy to deal with and very accommodating. The ice maker doesn't work so the owner actually buys you bags of ice! I've never even heard of that before. Gives you a good idea of who you're dealing with. I've been to other places where there just wasn't enough of something (silverware, towels, etc.) but this place is well equipped. Friendly, quiet neighborhood with a cute little "town" equipped with all of the essentials - market, general store, ice cream, pizza and wine. Great place to visit if you're looking for some low-key, relaxing, beach time.

    Deborah2015-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • A great little beach cottage in beautiful Fair Harbor! It is perfectly located between the beach and the dock with both less than a minute away. The cottage itself is perfect for a family or group of friends with three bedrooms and a nice kitchen and living room. The outdoor shower is fun! The cottage comes with bikes and a kayak and also a buggy that you use to cart everything to the beach. Jane was a pleasure to communicate with. We had a wonderful long weekend in a very special place. Thank you!

  • This was my second visit to Jennifer and Daniel's house This summer and as expected we loved it. The food, the hot tub, the cappuccino was all wonderful! Jennifer even made a birthday cake for my dog, who was 11 on the 27th and another delicious chocolate (human) birthday cake for my husband who's birthday was the next day. We enjoyed all the amenities of the house as well As Jennifer and Daniel's company. We look forward to returning next summer.

    Marion2016-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our experience at the Little Jumping Dog. The food was incredible, the company was fun and interesting and the location was so simple to find. Be sure to take a dip into the hot tub and don't be shy about telling your hosts what you like to eat!

    Matt2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely WONDERFUL stay with Jennifer and Daniel!! Between their incredibly beautiful home and delicious cooking, we could not have asked for more! Add in four friendly and affectionate pups, a hot tub, and their amazing outdoor shower, it went way beyond our expectations. A short walk from both the bay and the beach, we enjoyed afternoons swimming in the ocean and evenings watching the sunset while lounging on the floating dock. We even got to take the canoe out on a (perhaps overly ambitious) journey to the Fire Island Lighthouse. (While we were too tired from our paddling to hike to the top, if you make the trip, remember to bring shoes with you to fully enjoy the view!) We 100% recommend this stay!

    Lauren2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer picked us up from the ferry and made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Together we took the short walk to the house were she gave us a small tour. The house itself is beautiful with plenty of places to relax and unwind, especially the roofdeck is worth mentioning, but we were also a big fan of the outdoor shower. The location of the house is perfect, close to the ferry, beach and bay (and supermarket). Jennifer and Daniel are super cool and relaxed people, and we also loved their three little dogs. The lunch and dinner they cooked were superb, and Jennifer even baked my girlfriend a delicious birthday cake. Nothing but praise for the Little Jumping Dog House!

    Gustave2016-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer, Danny are the quintessential hostess with the mostess. We had three days of bliss at a beautiful acquainted home, a block away from the beach. Food was better than restaurant quality. Danny and Jennifer love cooking and entertaining. We had garlic infused shrimp with pasta, fresh mix salad with avocado on our first night, and home made bread by beautiful Jennifer . Second day I volunteerd to cook Sri Lankan Meal and Danny as my sous chef. There is lunch and fabulous coffee. I couldn't resist a cappuccino made by Danny and fresh bread by Jennifer before our departure. Highly recommended comfortable bedding, roof top Lounge, fresh towels, beach chairs , umbrellas must try hot tub . Finally three adorable new friends Meteror, FifiGigi and Beanie (man). Danny and Jennifer are so cool can't wait to book my next visit.

  • For people who don't travel to Fire Island very often, it can be a confusing process, taking subways to trains to ferries to walking and locating the house--and trying to figure out the timing of all of that can be very stressful. Jennifer-Jo made all of that so much easier by providing us with the schedule that would work for us, and then she and Daniel--with four cute dogs in tow!--picked us up from the ferry and escorted us to the house. Staying in the house was far more of a B&B experience than any other airbnb we've rented, and Jennifer-Jo and Daniel were far more than typical airbnb hosts; they not only opened their home to us, they opened their lives to us. They are very much in love with their home, their four cute dogs, good food, good company, and Fire Island, and their enthusiasm for all of those things is palpable! Their home is designed for relaxing, with comfortable indoor-outdoor sofas, a hot tub, and canopied beds on the roof. It's a short walk to the beach, and an even shorter walk to bayside sunset views. Probably the best part is the food! They are the perfect team, with Daniel taking the lead on meals, and Jennifer-Jo making desserts. And the meals were soooo good, with a premium being placed on fresh ingredients and homemade items as much as possible. Some of what we ate: raw oysters, shrimp, pesto spaghetti, homemade strawberry and caramel ice creams, grilled corn, clam chowder, homemade mozzarella, and carrot cake! Plus, they were great with our Jack Russell, Milo! We can't wait to come back!

    Pavithra2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fabulous time! Jennifer and Daniel are wonderful hosts. The dinners were outstanding, delicious, fresh restaurant quality. The roof deck has a beautiful view of the bay and lovely ocean breezes. Their little dogs are adorable and snuggly. Everything you need is there, bikes, Beach chairs and towels, even a very nice hot tub. I have already booked my second visit.

    Marion2016-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer and Daniel are fantastic hosts and their home is beautiful and comfortable! They have everything you might need to have a relaxing, luxurious beach vacation (beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, a canoe!, and more). We spent our days bouncing between the beach, the bay, the small nearby towns, and the incredible cedar hot tub. Never before have we felt so welcome in any type of b&b. Jennifer and Daniel were easygoing and fun to hang out with. We ended up joining them to watch fireworks, look for shooting stars, walk the dogs, and hang out for the second annual Floatilla (which they have the BEST float for). We also adored their three poodles and loved that we could bring our dog along for the trip. In regards to hosts, we have been to many b&bs and Jennifer and Daniel by far have been the best we've ever stayed with! We enjoyed getting to know them over some of the best meals we've eaten. They truly are creative chefs, introducing me to a gorgeous and delicious paella! And, Jennifer even made us a cake to celebrate our five-year wedding anniversary! It was a great weekend, we miss it already, and we look forward to being able to return!

  • If you are a happy person, you will LOVE this house. The location is sublime - unbeatable in Fair Harbor. The house amenities are excellent -- we had all kitchen supplies we needed for home cooked daily meals, bedding, towels, beach equipment, BBQ, bikes, and a wagon. The house was charming and grew on us more every day. Especially loved the back porch with its lovely umbrella'd table where we enjoyed many meals, its deck chairs, and outdoor shower. If for some reason you are a persnickety or anxious type, then you could I suppose complain that the electric stove isn't top of the line, or that the bikes are rusty, or that the fridge and dishwasher are a bit loud... but you'd be missing the point. It's a great value at a perfect location, with generous and communicative hosts - and these small surface blemishes should be viewed as giving character and charm to an overall delightful place. We would highly recommend this house!

    Only an hour from NYC, including a short 20 minute ferry ride, Fire Island offers a true beach escape. Located just a few miles south of Islip and separated by the Great South Bay in Long Island, Fire Island offers individuals and families the opportunity to vacation like the Rich & Famous. You will be left breathless as you watch the Ocean’s waves beat against Fire Island’s pristine dune beaches. I have been coming to Kismet for over 20 years and truly feel blessed to return every year.
    This house is located equal distance between the bay and ocean, about 9 houses from each.
    Today Fire Island is one of the hottest places to have a beach house. No cars allowed makes for a unique tranquil and stress free experience. Fire Island has never succumb to the same commercialism and class barriers that haunts the Hamptons. Fire Island has no restaurants that require a tie and people here opt for casual dress. This still is a truly laid back Bohemian getaway where relaxation is paramount. The striking sunsets are worth the trip alone.

As first time Fire Islanders we had not really paid attention to the unique but wonderful logistics of getting and being here, and they were really helpful with all the details and getting us settled in. The place itself was immaculate and exactly as advertised. It is definitely one of the nicest places in Fairharbor, with a great view of the ocean, and a open and bright feeling. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful time on Fire Island, guys.

    Our lovely house is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun, the beach, and being outdoors!
    Our house has 4 bedrooms downstairs, each with two movable twin platform beds which can be configured as two twins or one king, a ceiling fan, and two windows, so they are airy, cool and comfortable. There’s a full bathroom downstairs and a newly built enclosed outdoor shower on the back deck, as well as a huge shed to hold beach chairs, bikes, etc. Upstairs is a living/dining area, kitchen and a half bath. The upstairs deck, overlooking the ocean, has a picnic table, a large new Weber grill, and several large market umbrellas and chairs. The beach is in front of the house next door. The interior is painted white—it’s clean and bright and the floors are new throughout. It is a comfortable, slightly rustic, well-maintained house in the best location with friendly neighbors. The house is high up on the walk so we have virtually no mosquitoes, since there's no stagnant water below. It stays comfortable inside with cross breezes throughout. The house has a washer and dryer in a shed on the back deck, and a new kitchen with electric range, dishwasher, coffeemaker and microwave oven. In the living area are TV, DVD/VHS player and mp3 player, and WiFi. We have beach toys, chairs and umbrellas, five adult beach cruiser bikes with baskets for shopping trips to the store (about a minute’s ride way) and a large red wagon. All linens are included, as well as a Pack ’n Play, two folding bed rails, 2 potty seats, 2 step stools, a booster seat and a clip-on baby seat for the dining table. There's a 3' high railing around both decks. Our upstairs deck is ablaze in color, with planted window boxes, hibiscus, Mandevilla and various other plants (if you look carefully you'll find our basil and other edibles). Arrival time is Monday 10 AM, and the house is yours until 4 PM on Friday. The house cleaner comes at that time and does two loads of laundry in addition to cleaning the house (we ask that you wash sheets in advance of your departure due to time constraints). We hold a $400 security deposit (refundable within 30 days) to cover any damages, and we use a sublease contract for all of our rentals. You're welcome to use the washing machine and dryer, of course, as well as the kitchen staples—our philosophy is "mi casa es su casa" when you’re there. The house is stocked with all necessities except diapers and personal care items.
    Fair Harbor is a wonderful family-oriented community known as “the Barefoot Community.” It’s casual and safe, fun for kids, and has a lovely bay beach at the other end of our walk with lifeguard supervision. The ocean is spectacular, the beach is uncrowded, the “downtown”' is small and friendly. A food store, a general store, restaurant, liquor shop, pizza place and ice cream/candy shop constitute the Central Business District of Fair Harbor, as well as the Firehouse, where there are evening activities during the week. There are plenty of teenagers around for babysitting if you need a break. You can walk to the Lighthouse west of Kismet and climb to the top for spectacular views, watch kid movies on Wednesday night at the Firehouse, play basketball in nearby Saltaire, tennis in Dunewood, take a water taxi to Ocean Beach for a selection of restaurants or go further east to the Sunken Forest for a long hike. The peace and quiet of Fair Harbor are wonderful, making it a great place to just relax with your family. It’s safe for small children to navigate with friends, and neighbors will gladly look after them on the beach if you need to run to the house for a minute. We love Fair Harbor and know you will, too.
  • What a beautiful Airbnb experience! Simone's house was exactly as described... delightful, and so close to the beach we almost heard the waves...and certainly saw the ocean from lots of places in the house! The house was perfect to experience a fabulous vacation in Fire Island. The house is large enough, with ample space to just relax and enjoy the beauty of FI. Simone was EXTREMELY helpful and communicated quickly when asked a question. She was willing to offer advice and would do anything to make our experience the best it can be. I highly recommend this Airbnb, and, again, thank you Simone for always being there with your help, expertise and greatness! I sincerely appreciate all you did.

Our Cottage has 5 Bedrooms with 8 beds that sleep 11. Like Fair Harbor, it has a casual, laid back vibe that is comfortable and enjoyable for people of all ages.
    Our home has 1930s cottage charm, roomy, clean, neat and well appointed for your comfort & privacy.

    Fair Harbor is one of the friendliest, laid-back Fire Island communities, hosting the best restaurant and social sunset gatherings on the dock every evening. Conveniently located on the bay, in front of the bay beach, next to the Doctor's Office, near the market, pizza, restaurant, ice cream shop and yet just steps to the ocean.
  • I stayed at Roberto's house for 2 nights in July 2017. It was me and 6 other friends. We had a very nice time in both the house and in Fire Island. Roberto was very easy to communicate with and was at the house to greet us. The location is perfect. The house is literally a 2 min walk from the Fair Harbor ferry terminal. The front porch overlooks the north shore of the island. It's a 5 min walk to the south shore which has an amazing beach. The house can comfortably sleep 10 people. It has a great deck/barbeque area in the back and nice screened-in porch in the front. It also has 1 full bath and one half bath plus an outdoor shower. There isn't air conditioning in every room but we did have one in the upstairs bedroom. There were also plenty of fans and the nice ocean breeze to keep us cool. Overall we had a great stay. It was a good value for the location. Fair Harbor is a lot smaller and quieter than some other areas of fire island. But its perfect for a nice weekend getaway from the city when you just wanna relax and go to the beach in a low key environment. I recommend staying with Roberto if you do go to Fair Harbor and would stay there again.

  • We had a very lovely stay at Christine's house. It was very clean and spacious and the location couldn't be better. She was very kind and brought us a fresh pie from the farmstand along with some fresh fruits and vegetables. Overall we had a lovely stay.

  • We booked Christine's house for Labor Day weekend. The house is comfortable, clean and has a very well-stocked kitchen for cooking and dining. The deck is spacious and perfect for dining and entertaining, and has an outdoor shower to boot. This house fits six people comfortably and is kid and pet friendly. Christine went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. Highly recommended!

  • The hosts were very accommodating and introduced themselves once we arrived. We were given suggestions for the area, which is super cute and within walking distance of the main dock area where the ferry drops off. The kitchen and grill are great, and we were able to cook a large meal easily for our group. There are air conditioners in each of the bedrooms, which was a big plus too. Only thing that isn't necessarily represented in the photos is that there are a lot of toys/bikes/beach furniture scattered around inside and outside the house. The house definitely has a cozy/lived in feel so there isn't a ton of common space for large groups. All in all, a great trip and positive rental experience.

  • Amanda and her house was great! Very responsive and accommodating. Cute house with lots of space seconds from a beautiful beach.

    Justin2016-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house was in a great location to access the ferry, water taxi and beach, and was the perfect size for a small group. Amanda was a great host and offered suggestions on where we could go to enjoy the island. There was one concern I had regarding how clean the house was upon arrival, and Amanda listened and responded immediately to compensate us for the inconvenience. Overall a good stay.

    Alliccia2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda's house is in a great location in Fair Harbor - just a block from the beach and a short stroll from the Fair Habor ferry stop, where you can buy dinner, groceries, drinks and ice cream. The house itself is large and can comfortably fit a group of 7-10 people, with plenty of room for hanging out in the living room or out on the deck patio. There were also plenty of beach towels and equipment - even a few wagons to carry all of your things to the beach. Overall we had a pleasant stay!

    Emily2015-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach house in Fire Island! Close distance to the little town and beach! House came with everything we would need to have an amazing Fourth of July weekend. The hosts were very responsive to all our questions. Would recommend this house to any group of people looking to have a fun beach weekend away from the city!

  • We had an unbelievable weekend with Daniel and Jennifer in Fire Island. We were looking for a fun, sun-filled, relaxing weekend out of the city and this trip fulfilled all of our expectations. They were great hosts and the lunches and dinners were delicious (you'll be lucky if Danny decides to make the Paella!) They have everything available for you to enjoy a beach weekend, chairs, umbrellas, towels, hot tub and much more. You won't be disappointed!!

    Garima2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at the Little Jumping Dog House. Daniel picked us up from the ferry with the three poodles and we just strolled over to their beach house. It is such a cool place! We loved the design - it has a breezy, open and welcoming feel. We really enjoyed hanging out on the roof that offers spectacular views over the bay - perfect spot to relax. Jennifer and Daniel are very warm and easy to get along. One night we all watched up on the roof the rise of the full moon. The food was outstanding as well. Daniel cooked a delicious Paella for us. He finished it up in the smoker - never had something like it in NYC. We very much look forward to going back next summer!

    Markus2016-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Jennifer and Daniel was an absolute delight. Their home has a indoor/outdoor feel, with awesome breezes. All self made, the place is creative and inviting with decks, star roof, and outdoor shower. Also steps from bay, so we enjoyed nightly sunsets together. They cooked amazing meals for us, including a red curry Thai dish, and provided delicious espresso in AM. They are open, inviting, warm and down to earth. I'll definitely visit again!

    Deema2016-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • The description of the place and the 4 reviews for July 2016 are all completely accurate - great place, highly recommended, Jen and Danny are great hosts and very relaxed, food is excellent and so is the location. Our couple of days felt like a relaxing week. What to add...? DO follow hosts instructions about which ferry to take and where to get off - we didn't (!) Jen came to find us - with the 3 little dogs - panting not jumping when we met them in the afternoon heat. Jen and Danny took us to the ferry when we left...sensible (in our case) but actually just another a sign of their hospitality. Little jumping dog house is probably one of Fire Island's best kept secret. - but won't be for long. I also learned to hula-hoop, but that really must remain secret, for now.....

    Hazel2016-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer and Daniel were extremely welcoming and friendly. They were waiting for us at the ferry with a cart for our luggage upon our arrival. Conversation was easy and the vibe at the house was relaxing. The house is in a great spot, a hidden oasis, steps from the bay. We especially enjoyed the roof deck for a nap / wine session. Plus, the house itself is creatively designed and comfortable. The food: fabulous. Jennifer and Daniel were able to work around my wife's limited palate effortlessly and deliciously. Lovely experience all around.

    John2016-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel and Jennifer are great hosts. We would have loved more time to chat with them as they are really unique and interesting people. They were incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home. We enjoyed the inventive meals that they served - the best paella I'd ever had. The house is adorable and artsy and close to the beach. We also enjoyed using the bikes to ride around since the weather was bad. The dogs were adorable. Luck of the draw who the other guests are, so try to book with another couple that you know if you can. We'd stay again.

    Ember2016-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had an outstanding time staying with Daniel and Jennifer-Jo on Fire Island. Their house offers every comfort including beach chairs and umbrellas, a delightful hot tub, a shaded roof deck for lounging and bicycles for exploring. But it's really Daniel and Jennifer-Jo's gracious hospitality that sets this experience apart. Upon our arrival they greeted us at the dock with their 4 adorable little dogs, loaded our bags onto their wagon and escorted us to the house. When we went for a bike ride Jennifer-Jo fitted one of the bikes with a big basket so we could take our little dog along. They served us delicious meals which they prepared with the utmost care and all natural ingredients. Jennifer-Jo even made a special all-natural treat for the dogs! Sharing meals at their table and getting to know Daniel and Jennifer-Jo and the other guests was the highlight of our stay.

    Lillian2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Little Jumping Dog House is an Airbnb like no other! Danny and Jenny have earned their Super Host status. They have a beautiful home and are generous with their time and space. The food was out of this world and world and added to the incredible experience. I hope to be back again next summer!

  • Being at "Kids R US" house reminded me of my home in my home country. The place feels so alive with the kids and the parents running after them. Absolutely sweet! Mitch welcomed us with an open heart and was very helpful in providing us with directions to the nearby spots. The little girl in the house is so cute and naughty. She was so much excited to have us over and the kids wanted to know more about us. I hope we will get to know the kids more next time we visit Mitch Family. I will absolutely recommend this place to anyone who loves kids and enjoying a little bit of family time.

    Harpyar2016-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mitch was a wonderful host and could not have given us a warmer welcome nor taken better care of us. The house is perfectly located just a few steps from the harbor. It is clean and has everything one need, including a big deck with partial view of the sea. My 19 month toddler was in heaven and freely walking around in the house and on the deck with everyone helping to keep an eye on her. We spent a beautiful long weekend in the house and really enjoyed it

Our kids love being right in town -- they love the freedom of running in a pack to get ice cream or pizza or candy, or to look for hermit crabs at the bay. And there are always other kids around with this share, so there is always a way to feel independent while vacationing as a family. The Blue Room offers three comfy twin beds and a gorgeous harbor view. Wake up looking out at the waves and boats!

  • Description is accurate. Very family friendly house and good location. Mitch was very welcoming. For Pokémon go players. The house is right next door to a Pokestop which can be accessed from the house! Overall we had a great time.

    Elizabeth2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time on Fire Island. I must admit, I was a little nervous about showing up on the last ferry to Fair Harbor with my 2 kids in the "off-season" with no plan B. I immediately felt so much better after Mitch called me to chat, and then sent me several emails with info about the house and where I could find towels and beach chairs and info about the ferry, etc, etc... He obviously loves the house and Fair Harbor and was very welcoming. The house itself was very comfortable and clean- we stayed in the Blue room which had 3 very comfortable twin beds with a harbor view and the fire island lighthouse twinkling through the window at night. The house is less than a minute from the ferry. There were a bunch of bikes to choose from and my kids each found a serviceable bike that they could use to ride all over the place. The upstairs shower was small but had hot water and great water pressure and the outside shower was a real pleasure. There is another shower downstairs that we did not use. There is a giant grill and a kitchen with all of the utensils/pans that you would need to make a meal. Since it was off season we had to cook and brought the basics we would need to eat for 2 days. The beach was almost empty and beautiful. We woke up early both mornings with deer 6 feet away munching on the shrubbery outside of the bay window. We did have the house to ourselves so that was nice but I image that it would be nice to have other families there too. I liked that the focus was so kid-centric- the three of us had so much fun!

    Rebecca2015-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible first time experience in Fire Island. Mitch is such an amazing host. He met me and my kids on the ferry and really made the weekend special for us with such great hospitality. Although we didn't know one another, the house felt like a family. My kids and I are looking forward to spending more time there throughout the years.

  • Our first time at fire island. Mitch's house is perfectly located right next to the ferry and the playground. The playground by the bay is awesome. The house provides all the basic needs, esp. things for the beach. Not fancy but cozy. Mitch and his wife are very easy going and accommodating. Thank you!

    Yue2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mitch was a warm and welcoming host and exceptionally friendly to our son, who can be a handful. Mitch was more than accommodating, by providing us with the best room in the house, all the beach goods (i.e. beach umbrella, toys, wagon to haul things, towels, etc), and kitchen utensils for cooking. Honestly, we ended up not really having to bring anything besides our own clothes, which is great for light travelers and short weekend stay. Excellent location right by the ferry dock, playground, grocery store, ice cream parlor, and pizza shop/restaurant. People from Fair Harbor gather around this area especially at night to view the sunset so we were at the perfect spot! We could see it from the back patio. Really enjoyed the conversations with Mitch. My son already called him on his fake phone since he misses him! Looking forward to returning!
