Paradise or Heaven.....we feel it's both. THE Premier oceanfront rental location in Atlantique. When you rent at the beach, wouldn't you like to be right on the beach with a panoramic view of the ocean? ! This house is located on the beach, and boasts dramatic, sweeping, and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Adjacent to the "Forever Wild" National Seashore, we have views that go on forever...the VERY best on the beach. This great a location is very rare! Great, family-oriented, child friendly community...no crowds, no hassles. We are just a short walk or quick water taxi ride, down the beach to Ocean Beach or Fair Harbor, with all the restaurants and shops available to you. Due to the nature of our community, we will rent only to families or couples, NO GROUPERS PLEASE. (no more than 8 people.) We do not rent just for weekends...***We only rent our home for two weeks each summer, the last week of July and the first week of August.

About Patrick & Susan Ross ... Though Florida is now our primary residence, we lived and worked on Long Island for 35 years. We continue to summer on Fire Island from Memorial Day into October, and choose to rent our home but for only one or two weeks each summer. Since we consider our home, and likewise the community of Atlantique, to be very special places ... we seek renters who are special people who will appreciate our home as if it were their own. Patrick & Susan Ross purchased this house in 1989. WHY Patrick & Susan Ross chose Fire Island ... "In the history and geography of the world, how many oceanfront homes have there been that one might be able to personally enjoy? We have been fortunate to have traveled vastly throughout Europe, South America, Africa, Southeast Asia and such exotic places as Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, the Bahamas and others. There is no other place on Earth like Fire Island, a place people easily fall in love with and give their hearts to. We did, and our family has." Our house was made available this summer for 2 weeks, with one of those weeks already taken by a family for its fourth summer. For the one remaining week, this oceanfront home can be personally yours to enjoy. What makes this house unique? How does one describe what "dreams" are made of? If you are a "beach person," or long to experience being one, you couldn't ask for anything more. Thirty years ago, it was love at first sight ... literally. We couldn't believe the world we were about to enter, when we found this home, when we found the community of Atlantique, when we found the people who live and play here. To say our daughter, son in law and grandson have loved it, is a major understatement. Yes, we still pinch ourselves every day. In case you're wondering, ... the answer is "NO," ... we never get tired of watching the sun coming up or seeing the moon rising from the ocean. Would you? Sheer joy !
If you are looking for a luxury Fire Island property to rent and this one is available book it, period!
We have stayed at this property twice and had two fantastic family holidays combined with a week in NY. To get there just use the train from Penn Station and the ferry – no need to hire a car.
Its a fantastic property in an excellent location with wonderful views and the best owners.
Atlantique is a small community just to the west of Ocean Beach (15 min walk). It is far enough away from Ocean Beach to give you some breathing space from the congestion and noise but close enough that you can stroll over in the evening, enjoy the great restaurants and bars and then have a lovely walk back home along the beach (or use the frequent water taxi if you are too full to walk).
There is a beach bar at Atlantique serving great drinks (beers, cocktails, ice creams, hot dogs etc. etc.) and reasonable evening meals. Two big screens showing sports. Many an evening sat there sipping cocktails and watching the baseball.
Atlantique never gets too busy but come early evening the boat and the crowds depart and you have the whole place to yourself and your very friendly neighbours. There is a very real community spirit here.
The house is immaculate and lovingly furnished with lots of personal touches. It sits right on the beach with an uninterrupted view of the sea. The deck is huge and is a great place to entertain or watch dolphins and whales going past. The inland houses can be hotter and suffer with mosquitoes.
The house is very well equipped including lots of beach equipment/toys. It’s a decent walk to the supermarkets and the sand can be very tiring to walk on but on our second trip we organised a food delivery from the mainland. It was very easy to do and our hosts were very happy to advise/assist.
We have had two great holidays at Fire Island – its one of those places where all year I keep finding myself daydreaming at my desk in rainy London thinking back to sitting on that deck sipping a cold beer watching the sun go down.
