Beautiful location, easy access to the beach and town! Amazing rooftop views of both the bay and the ocean. The house is perfect for large groups. We held a family reunion there with 12 people and the open space was great. There was plenty of hot water. However, the rental was worn and needs repair and TLC. There was no storage space in bedrooms so you can't unpack. Kitchen was filled with other people's' food and drinks which caused ants and moths to take up residence as well. Loved the spot but I would not rent it again.

Ultimately the host became so obtrusive and would not leave the rental that we had to call 911 and get a uniformed police officer to respond. The remainder of the weekend she was naked outside (within view of my guests) while her 3 children scream and yelled, dog barked and came into the rental until very late (3am) waking up my guests and being a general nuisance. This was not an not the entire house rental in any way and was infact a shared house with very obtrusive and bothersome housemates. It was a truly miserable week thanks to our host. She was in our business and the space like she was not renting it. I consider her pictures and listing to be a fraudulent representation of the rental and should be re-classified, if not removed from Airbnb at least until accurate pictures are posted for what the listing actually looks like. The one bright spot was my fiancé had said yes to my proposal, but the host had already given away the surprise on Friday a few hours before we had to call the police on her.

Response from Gennaro:
Clay was NOT a good guest. He lied to me & scammed me. He rented the house for a supposed "family trip" & actually did a COMMERCIAL photo shoot for his business without my permission at the house. When I told him I wasn't comfortable with him using my house in this commercial manner he called the police on me to try & evict me from my own apt in the house. The police laughed at him and he got very upset & had a hissy fit and stomped back upstairs to his commercial photo shoot. There was no "surprise" engagement...he was promoting his trip on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) & (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) using photos of my house publicly to promote his business... I did not want my house publicly photographed Clay clogged the toilet and I had to go upstair with the plunger and clean out the toilet from him clogging it. It was in 100% working order when he arrived. The plunger was next to toilet which he didn't use. I came upstairs to clean out the toilet of his waste. There are 25 window blinds in the whole house. He wanted all of the pulled up to the maximum opening which we never do and 1 blind he was unable to open fully. He wanted them pulled up to the complete top. That was the only issue with 1 of the blinds. The bathroom sink faucet was also fine and 100% functional but he wasn't happy with it because it jiggles a tiny bit. The listing clearly says that I have an owners apt on the premise and I would be on site in my separate apt. I also told him this before he arrived. This is clearly stated in the listing that be booked and I also told him before he arrived. The house has 2 separate apartments. He had his own private 5 bedroom apt with his own private deck & green roof. Clay also did not ask if he could bring his dog into the apartment. He TOLD me he was bringing his emotional support animal which he did not provide any documentation on. Guests bringing animals are NOT allowed with this booking . I called airbnb when I have was having issues with this guest because he was not using the house for the purposes that he booked it for. I am a very private homeowner & he was using the house for a commercial photo shoot and advertising it on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to promote his business using the hashtags of the street name which is only 1 block long in a private community. I did not book the house for a commercial photo shoot or give him permission to move everything and leave it in total disarray. I asked him kindly to make sure the house was left as he found it and he did not. He changed almost every location of 50% of the furniture and every single piece of wall hanging was removed and left in the downstairs level. I answered every request he had and I have the text messages as proof of this. I did everything I could to make sure his stay was satisfactory and the main issue he had was when HE clogged the toilet and I had to unclog it. He asked me for a maid to come after he painted & redid the whole house & I provided him with my housekeeper which he was responsible for paying & getting his own receipt for. He had her phone number & I was only helping him out. The color of the walls was the same color in the photos and he wanted to repaint it for his commercial photo shoot. He told me he would pay to have them repainted if we didn't like the color.

Gennaro and Loretta introduced us to their whole family, including their very sweet dogs (Red and Jill)! They were incredibly accommodating and welcoming with providing tips about the space and area for a group that was going to Fire Island for the first time. The path up to the house is itself quite a sight, as you walk through a bamboo-lined boardwalk. The house had extra surprise amenities that I won't spoil in this review, but suffice to say our group was incredibly lucky to have picked this spot!

This house is indeed steps from the beach and comfortably slept 12 people. The upper deck is big enough to seat the full group and is quiet and serene, a great spot for hearing the crashing waves. The host was very responsive to issues we came across once we checked in, including a gas tank for the grill that went empty after the first night (once it was replaced the grill worked great) Note that some of the Appliances and fixtures could use a bit of an upgrade and there is no volume on the TV set. The kitchen had ants and the fridge was full of stuff from previous guest, but those were minor issues. We had citronella buckets and bug spray and had no problem with mosquitoes. All in all we really loved the house and the location and it fit our needs completely.

Great experience! Awesome property! They Had bikes to take into town a big cart for shopping and luggage awesome host was very accommodating! They even let us use the outdoor shower a few hours after checkout which was nice to get that extra beach time. The house was roomy and spotless and modern and pristine! Great layout! This house is the 8th back from beach so about 3 minute walk! Big deck and soothing vibe! Tons of glass plenty of hot water and breeze! Thanks!

The hosts were very easy to communicate with, and met us at their house to explain all the ins and outs. The house was in a beautiful quite community very close to ocean beach, which made our vacation both very convenient but relaxing and quiet. My only complaint is I wish we could have stayed longer!

The house was very nice, slept 10 people as promised. Great porch, comfortable lounge chairs, grill that's slow to heat up initially but then worked great. Excellent location, not too far from town and very close to the beach. Big dining room table, big comfortable living room with a few couches that fit everyone at once. This house is great for a group setting, but the owners are very overly conscious of their renters being respectful, quiet if they're outside after 10 pm, and not "frat like" bc it sounds like they've had bad experiences prior to our stay. So if you're wild partiers this isn't the place for you. Also, the contact info on this page is slightly inaccurate - the person at the phone number here is not incredibly responsive, much better to contact Loretta (they will give you her number when you reserve) - she was incredibly nice and very responsive. She checked in to see how things were going and even offered us to stay an extra night at a discounted rate. Only issues we had was that the family was still there when we arrived even though check-in said 3 pm and I specifically reached out in advance to let them know we would be there at 3 on the dot. The family didn't leave the house until 3:45 and they mentioned that the husband was sleeping in one of the beds while the cleaning crew was there, which led us to believe they didn't clean whatever room he was sleeping in. So that was a slightly uncomfortable experience as we waited there for 45 minutes to have access to the house. Loretta was wonderful to work with, and despite the odd experience when we initially arrived at the house, we had a wonderful time and I would stay here again.
