Great Location near the ferry, However I have a mold allergy!!!
As soon as i sat on the futon in the living area, my eye got very itchy. Luckily i left and was outside most of the night, but it was already too late cause my eye was irritated.
When i woke up in the morning, i rubbed my eye, once and then before you know it i scratched my cornea. My eye was tearing uncontrollably and basically had to leave on the first ferry out.
The apartment was obviously flooded by Sandy, When I opened the closet door in the bathroom where the towels are stored I noticed it had a lot of mold growing.. all along the base boards.
I didn’t even want to take a shower there, bc I didn’t want to wrap my body in mold infested towels.
If someone is charging that much to stay on fire island, They could at least use that money to get new furniture, floors etc. The floors were pretty gross and grimy probably not replaced either after the floods.
I understand it costs a lot of money to replace things after the storm, but to charge that amount of money and not do any kind of replacement of the affected areas is really disgusting. I am not a picky person, have stayed all over the world in different types of establishments and I have to say this was one of the dirties places I’ve stayed in a long time..
Beware if you have allergies
