Our family had an amazing time. Anthony and Whitney were very accessible if any problems arose...the house is impeccable. One house from the beach and an incredible pool/hot tub. Whitney set the house up perfectly. We can’t wait to come back!
Anthony and Whitney are amazing hosts. They were very attentive before and during our stay. I LOVE this house. Perfect location and the house itself is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Equipped with everything you need and more. The pool and deck area is where we spent most of our time. This was our 2nd visit and we are sure to come back next summer. We won’t stay anywhere else!
While we weren't blessed with good weather we were blessed with an amazing house and an extremely helpful and gracious host. The house is beautifully designed and has everything you could ever need, Anthony and Whitney really thought of everything to keep you comfortable. We had to enjoy the inside of the house a little more than we would have liked because of the rain but having all the little comforts of home really helped. The pool/hot tub combo was a welcomed addition, we were able to go in the hot tub even when it was raining and had some of our best times just hanging out in there looking at the ocean. The view is tremendous and you can hear the waves on the beach while you sleep. Anthony was very helpful throughout the stay and answered any questions we had quickly, it was a nice change of pace getting direct assistance from the home owner and in a speedy time frame. I would highly recommend vacationing here especially if you want a luxury experience pretty much on the beach. Thanks Whitney and Anthony for letting us rent your beautiful home, i am sure we will be back!
Whitney was very accommodating and made booking very easy. The house is beautiful and overlooks the beach. My favorite part was hanging out on the porch with the pool just relaxing and enjoying the weekend. I would definitely book again in the future. Thanks Whitney!
Great long-time friend get-together over a long weekend at Windows on the Sea in Ocean Beach, Fire Island.The house is impeccable and clean. With updated amenities, homeowners Whitney & Anthony have thought of everything and are easily accessible via phone or text. From voice command Alexa, who seems to know all, to the surround sound speakers, which give a musical to the background to this beautifully appointed home. Bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, leave them all home, because the homeowners have them readily available for you to use. The beach and ocean, which are visible from almost every area of the home, is truly a very short walking distance and the restaurants & shops are a picturesque, easy walk from the house. So happy to have had the pleasure of staying their home. Thank you to Whitney & Anthony for sharing their home with us. You’ve completely surpassed my expectations, Whitney & Anthony...can’t wait to return to Windows on the Sea.
The house was unbelievable! A beautiful home and location. We absolutely loved our vacation away. Whitney and Anthony were amazing and so responsive with any questions are needs we had.
I just had an incredible week at this gorgeous home with my children and some friends. I felt like I stepped into paradise. The house is newly renovated and spacious. There was enough room for all the kids to run around and the adults to have their own space. The owners ensured we had everything we needed for our stay. The amenities were awesome: pillowed backpack beach chairs for everyone, quick dry beach towels, double open sky shower at the pool and even an ice maker and fridge right at the pool. The location is perfect-just a few minutes from the ferry and the beach is literally outside the door. The deck was a perfect place to hang and has great beach views. The pool is one of the coolest pools I have ever seen. Made from a recycled shipping container, it is all glass and you can see the beach when you are under water. The pool has a built in hot tub so our kids could swim right near us while the adults enjoyed the heated hot tub. It is also the perfect depth for the kids. The owners also provide bikes (for kids and adults!) so we were able to check out more of the island. This place is more than perfect. I can't wait to go back!
Our time at Windows on the Sea was absolutely perfect! The house is beautiful, the location is prime and it was overall a very luxurious stay. Anthony and Whitney were very accommodating throughout the weekend and I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a house on Fire Island!! We hope to return soon :)
We LOVE this place! It’s perfect for a quick getaway or longer. Whether a weekend or a week (or more), the accommodations are amazing, the amenities are everything you need and then some, and the price, proximity, views, and location are perfect. Seriously: perfect. More specifically… well, let me start with Fire Island itself, which is utterly unique, what with the ferry-only access and just walking or biking everywhere. It’s truly cool: you feel like you’re somewhere far off, exotic, and just plain different. Alas, you’re just a few minutes ferry trip from Brooklyn! The property is beautiful, modern, clean, spacious, easy, & close to where you want to be on Fire Island. It’s perfect for, say, three families with a couple of kids each, or combinations like that. Big family, even with in-laws? Cool. Trip with older kids + their friends? Perf. Bunch o’ couples? Done. It all works. There’s plenty of room, & the kids will love that they’re neither too close nor too far from you. As for the home, the views are awesome, the deck is fantastic, & it’s a lovely place to relax in the daytime sun, the afternoon or evening shade, or the nighttime moonglow. Inside, it’s modern, high-end living. The kitchen was our favorite room, as it’s a dream to hang, to cook, to drink, & of course to eat. Ever go on vacation, and you plan on grabbing some fresh food at the market & whipping it up, but there’s not enough room or the kitchen just doesn’t… work? Yeah, this isn’t that. Here, there’s truly tons of space for fun, communal prep, with every conceivable amenity, & everything (and I MEAN everything!) that you could conceivably desire in the kitchen, deck, or beach. I’m talking down to the dozen beach chairs/umbrellas, & ample towels. It’s. All. There. We have traveled quite a bit, & I want to say outright that this spot is worth the price. You get quite a lot for your vacation dollar, tangible and intangible: we particularly loved being able to take quick walks (even with our young kids) and bike rides (same) to the beach, to get some ice cream, or for meals. And it's quick & easy to run back to the house from the beach -- for a bathroom break, or to refill the cooler, or to grab a snack. With kids, that works. Lastly, the neighbors were friendly, & the overall vibe was a perfect blend of ‘happening’ & ‘peaceful’ – the just-right mix of ‘oooh’ and ‘aaah’. All in all, it’s got location + price + comfort + amenities + scene + peace… We couldn’t recommend it more!
Last summer we had the pleasure of vacationing at this beautiful newly renovated home in Ocean Bay Park, Fire Island. I’ve stayed in properties around the world and can confidently say that this is one of the best vacation homes for families (with friends- it sleeps up to 12). My wife and I alternated between cooking in the newly built chef’s kitchen and grilling outside on the huge Weber grill on a deck overlooking the ocean. Either way, the house was fully stocked with supplies for cooking and baking. The top floor includes a master bedroom and an open, airy great room perfect to play Jenga with cocktails after the kids are asleep. We stayed in the sea glass room (one of the 4 bedrooms downstairs), and our kids shared the bunk room with our friend’s 2 other kids. They had a blast sleeping with their friends, and we loved our super comfy gel mattress and rain shower with natural stone floor. The rooms on the bottom floor each had a theme- nautical for the kids’ room, a deer room and a surf room, with fun details in each. In addition to being steps from the beach, we loved being able to ride bikes to restaurants in Ocean Bay Park and Ocean Beach- there were enough for all of us at the house and one with a trailer for the littlest kids. We’re already booked for next summer and especially excited for the pool & hot tub that is going in!
