John's place was great and just as described. It was our first trip to the Pines and we loved the area. The house is very centrally located, within a 3 minute walk to the ferry, bars, liquor and grocery stores. The pool and patio are were great. The Sonos system was perfect and we utilized the large grill for all of our meals. John was very responsive to any questions we had in preparation for our trip and checked in with via email us to make sure we were settled in. I would recommend John's place if you're looking for a great place to stay in the Pines.

We just got back from an incredible stay at John and Kevin's awesome house in the Pines! The location is fantastic, it's a short walk to the harbor and the beach.  As hosts, John and Kevin are attentive, thoughtful, and generous. Things we especially loved here: super comfortable living room and bedrooms, the fantastic sonos sound system which plays tunes both inside and outdoors, AC in every room, and the house is very well stocked with towels, linens, cooking utensils, etc. The pool/deck is fabulous, but the pool isn't heated - so may be chilly for those who prefer balmy waters. We look forward to returning to this perfect house on future visits to Fire Island!

The house and property make you feel secluded, but you are a 4 minute walk to the harbor or beach. The house is fun and relaxed and has everything you need for a beach week in the Pines. The house and area is kid friendly. Our girls loved being there and everyone said hello to them. This place is truly a dream.

John's house was absolutely fabulous! Me, my fiancé & several friends stayed in John's house in the Pines for Pines Party week. Location was great, fairly close to the harbor & the beach. Every room has AC which you don't always find on Fire Island, which came in handy as temps went into the 90's the week we were there! Upon arrival, the house was very clean & presentable and the housekeeper made us feel welcome and showed us around. All info & instructions were provided in a handy binder. We didn't meet John personally, but he was easily available for questions once whenever we needed something. We especially loved the pool which is very private and in a wooded setting! We also loved the BBQ grill as we cooked every night and John even provide propane for that. Overall, it was an excellent stay & super comfy house. We will definitely be back again!!

My friends and I spent 5 perfect nights at John's house and we're already planning our return next year. John was the perfect host - friendly, communicative, helpful, and unobtrusive. The house is a short walk from the harbor and larger than we expected. It had everything we needed including a well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, ice machine, and plenty of bath and beach towels. Our favorite part of the house was the pool where we spent most of our time and which gets great sun and shade throughout the day. We definitely played music loudly on outdoor speakers but never had any problems with neighbors. However, we did use the Sonos app which meant we could turn off the outdoor speakers after 10pm. Two tips - check out Midway Walk right next to John's house which is possibly the most scenic part of the Pines, and skip the coffee at the Bistro and get it from the Pantry instead.

John's house is absolutely wonderful. It was an excellent getaway for my friends and me for Memorial Day weekend. John was extremely communicative and gracious and made us feel totally at home. The house is fully stocked with everything you need for a successful trip to the Pines. Do note that there is a neighbor who is hyper sensitive to any noise.

We had an amazing weekend at John's place. For anyone wanting to have a fun weekend in The Pines, the location is unparalleled as are the amenities in the house - the bedrooms, kitchen, pool (with BBQ and outdoor furniture), living space (great WiFi and Sonos) and bathrooms were all excellent. We'd definitely stay here again next summer.

Love exploring new travel destinations. Always prefer a unique experience over the chain hotel. Enjoy throwing together a simple dinner from whatever looks fresh at the farmer's market. Favorite thing to do in a new place is go for a long run.
