Finally, the weather is turning and from all accounts, it will be an active weekend. I have heard from Fire Island homeowners, at least one lives in California, dying to get out here, who are arriving this weekend. What will they find? Mostly dusty and messy beach houses. I was checking on a number of our rental houses yesterday; reminding myself of the number of beds, bikes or other features in homes which are new rental listings. To a house, when residents arrive and no matter how the houses were left last Fall, they will find that they need to spend countless hours moving furniture, cleaning, de-cluttering and
cleaning their yards. It is the nature of having a house on Fire Island. Until the sun comes out and occupancy is assured, most Fire Island houses are pretty bleak.
