The weather has been cold and frigid lately on Long Island. With our first snow storm upon us – the many days of winter seem to be dreadfully laid out ahead of us. While you are inside warming up from the cold – close your eyes and imagine the sunshine and the beach! When the weather is cold and snowy outside – it’s a great time to start planning your summer vacation on Fire Island!
Don’t let the snow get the best of you; instead of white snow – think about white sand! And if there’s any condensation in the air – it will be from the spray of the cool waves of the Atlantic Ocean! Yes schools are closed – but it will be for summer break – not snow days! If you can imagine the beautiful warm days of summer on the warm and sunny beaches of Fire Island, you can start planning your summer getaway.
Now is great time to book your vacation stay in Fire Island because there is more rental availability then if you wait until the spring. Consider all of the features and amenities that you want. Do you want a house with an ocean view? Do you want a pool and a deck? How about an outdoor shower? Do you need a large kitchen to cook some fresh seafood and prepare terrific meals or do you prefer a barbecue to grill outside.
Consider the size of the home or condo that you need. Think about how many people will be traveling with you. Maybe a cozy cottage for two is all you need; or if you are traveling with a large group of friends and family – a larger house with many bedrooms would be a great fit. If you have a large group, you also want a large space so everyone can spread out and relax. More than one bathroom is also convenient when you have several people in one home.
Another thing to consider is location. A house right on the beach is a wonderful experience – you just walk right out the door and onto the sand. Do you want something secluded and private or do you want to be closer to the exciting action of the restaurants and bars that dot many areas of Fire Island? The great thing about Fire Island is that wherever your house or rental is located, you can walk or bike ride everywhere! So even if your home is more secluded and not directly “in town” you can still easily walk to any of the great restaurants for dinner or to an ice cream shop for a refreshing treat. Grab a drink and watch the sunset and then stroll home – one of the many summery aspects of staying on Fire Island.
