Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time - Micheal was very helpful and even took us on a boat trip around the bay. It was great to come back to a peaceful house in the suburbs after each hectic day in Manhattan. Broad Channel is a very quiet neighbourhood and with a subway stop a 10 minute walk away - ideally situated. The house is very homely and comfortable - with a fantastic view of Jamaica bay from the balcony.

The only draw back was the flight home - we will return but will fly with Virgin or American airlines next time!

The house has a fantastic view of the water and the NYC skyline! It's convenient location allows for an easy day trip into NYC via the train, but the wonderful view makes it tough to leave the waterfront deck!!!
The owner lives nearby and was very helpful.
It's also easy to walk to the nearby shops/restaurants for supplies, lunch or dinner.

We rented this beautiful home for the long Thanksgiving weekend and we had the most wonderful time. The house is large and it easily accommodated our sons' families and ourselves. The kitchen is so well equipped that we had no trouble cooking a large Thanksgiving feast. The view is breathtaking, there is easy access to the Metro, and Rockaway Beach is just a short drive over the bridge. I can only imagine how incredible this would be in the summertime. Michael took care of everything. Just pack a suitcase and you're set. I would definitely rent this home again.

wonderful place to stay in New York City!

We had a very nice family reunion time in Michael's house. It is easily to accommodate 8 of us. The beds, the bathrooms and the kitchen are all in good conditions! I like the 3 bathrooms esp. for different families. The view from the deck is beautiful even in winter! The house seems far from the city, but after Michael showed us a convenient way, the distance never bothered us. We went to the city everyday and enjoyed dinner at the house together every night. Michael is a very good host, he answered all my questions quickly before we came to the house and gave us privacy when we were there. If we come to NYC again, we will definitely stay here!

We had a wonderful time in this home! Three generations together for one week. There was plenty for all to do and enjoy! We had privacy, community and access to NYC! Michael was a wonderful host and also gave great information about the neighborhood and city. We will certainly stay again!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
I have a very large family that lives in the Rockaways across the bridge and I came in from Seattle with my kids & grand children - I rented this property due to having many come into town for my Mothers 86th birthday and Labor Day Family Reunion - the home is very spacious and very well kept. My daughter rented a place on the beach in Rockaway had 9 kids in a 2 bedroom unit, once they saw this property they wished they had it. It accommodates many and Micheal will make sure all are comfortable. Its a very relaxing place in the morning and evenings.

When renting I thought it was the whole house, found out when I arrived the house is divided into two units..there was another group sharing the property but they have their own privacy as we did along with seperate entrances. Was concerned with all my family memember possibly clashing with another large group but all worked out. The other group were very nice and from Germany :)

It was perfect

What A Great Find!

  • 5 of 5
In NY for a college graduation, our family stayed 5 days at this lovely getaway. A perfect respite from The City, yet minutes away by subway; our experience could not have been better! Michael is a great host, lives nearby and is available if needed. Broad Channel is very reminiscent of little villages in England, very charming and seemingly untouched by the crazy era in which we now live. Some excellent restaurants in nearby Howard Beach made evenings leisurely and enjoyable. Hope we have an opportunity to return!
