1950s Cherry Grove beach bungalow
“It was the perfect little cottage. All the beach essentials were there and more! Towels, beach blanket, chairs, umbrella. Quick responses too! Just wish the check out time were just one hour later at 11 instead of 10 so we didn’t have to stand around and wait for most shops and restaurants to open to be in the shade since we still had over a 3 hour wait for the ferry. We did get to leave our things outside the property which helped out a lot so we didn’t have to carry that around til restaurants and shade were available! Would definitely recommend this cute cottage for a quiet get away!”
Location Location Location! This newly appointed modernist home resides directly on the Bay and is three blocks east of town...only five minutes from shopping and nightlife. The house is also on a direct walk to the Ocean and its Bay views are spectacular! The unit features nine foot sliding glass doors that open sixteen feet wide leading you from the living space to the sprawling Bayfront cedar deck, it's an amazing indoor/outdoor experience.
“We were a group of 4 (2 couples) that rented Robby’s place for a week and loved it. The location is perfect, home is bright/airy, and Robby is an excellent host who really wants his guests to have a great experience. We felt this firsthand when we had a minor issue come up and Robby was incredibly responsive and accommodating. We also appreciated the extra measures that Robby is taking during the covid19 pandemic to ensure that the home is properly cleaned. All in all a wonderful time and one in which we did not want to end when it came time to check out. Thank you Robby!”

“Dale's place is exceeded our expectations as did Fire Island in general. Dale was extremely communicative, helpful, flexible, and hospitable. The house itself is filled w perfect touches to accommodate the low-key and relaxed scene of Cherry Grove and the beach. Dale has literally provided everything you need to enjoy yourself-- beach gear, fully stocked kitchen AND great Barbecue out back. The outdoor shower is the perfect setup and at nights, between hanging on the deck or in the super open and comfortable living room setup we settled right in! The beach scene is safe, clean, calm, quiet, w adult vibes so you can just relax down there all down (AND atm there are humpback whales going by everyday!). FYI there are some kids there and it's comfortable/fun for them (we traveled w a 2yrold), but it's super relaxed and quiet and everyone's pretty much just totally into enjoying the beach. You can walk to the Pines via the beach or back through a little trail (we went by beach daily to grab early morning coffees at the Pines Pantry deli and head back-- atm you have to order by phone ahead of time and then you pick up food/beverages in the back!) Dale also provides a list of spots to hit up in town by the Cherry Grove ferry and we were there daily. FYI you can have a wider variety of wine etc delivered from the mainland via ferry! Which may be a preferable option to the liquor store (and as we found out in a desperate moment, the pizza shop will sell you wine to-go also). The grocery store is stocked w beers, cider, spiked drinks as normal as well as some fresh produce and pantry items (it is more expensive, but I think that's reasonable and expected when you have to ship everything in and they're super nice-- the manager at one point noticed a bag of organic tomatoes I had picked out were looking a little sad and went into the bag to replace them for me without me even totally noticing it!) I think this is the longest review I've ever written but I can't say enough about how lovely this stay was and exactly what we were looking for-- stylish, but rustic beach vibes so we actually FEEL we are at the beach at all times and away from the city, a small friendly community, low key, beautiful beaches w refreshing clean dips in the ocean, AND convenient. I should put this at the top of the list but BEWARE the ferry changed times last minute BOTH on our way out there and our way back! We parked at the lot across the street and were happy for it to just be able to get in the car and roll (it's something like $9 mon-thurs & $16 fri-sat-sun). Anyway, if this place is available, book it immediately, and then figure out how you'll make it work! It's perfect. Hope to see you again soon, Dale, and THANK YOU!”
