Highlights include a modern and well-appointed kitchen, a spacious dining room, and a family room and fire place for kicking back and watching a movie on smart TV. It even has a pool table for getting into a nice game of billiards. The Bedrooms are large and well furnished. The master bedroom features a king sized bed and soaking tub. The house is also big enough that there are plenty of spaces for pulling away to get work done or just to read and relax on your own.

This is an amazing property, very, very clean will everything you need. The train station is less than 10 minutes away, with a great supermarket just a few steps away. People in the area were very friendly and helpful - I would recommend this place to everyone who visits New York, we used the train / ferry daily (only 1 hr overall to mainland NY) - absolutely great place.
Sanjay, I am happy you liked your stay at my house! Would love to have you back any time soon!
Great rental, location not so good.
We were a group of 4 moms and 4 teenage girls travelling from Texas to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. The house is great and Marina is AWESOME! The house is clean, neat and well-equipped with towels, kitchen essentials, and toiletries. There were some rough patches for us that I want to share so that no one else goes through it.
1. Arrange for transportation BEFORE you get there. We were able to find a private bus to take us to the house for $120 (plus tolls). PLEASE NOTE: There is a $15.00 toll to get ON to the island by car. Our group decided AFTER we got to the house from the airport that we needed to rent a car, just because it was cold and we didn't want to walk to the train station to take the train to the ferry every day. Renting the car was a disaster. We took a cab to Avis in Amboy and once there we had to deal with the RUDEST people I ever met in my life. Long story short, we ended up going back to the airport and paying the toll to get back on the island again. Wasted tons of time and money. So, have your transportation details worked out beforehand…
2. This is a residential neighborhood and the residents are not used to tourists being in their neighborhood. Our experience was not positive at all. The people in the neighborhood (and on the island in general) were not friendly. We ate at a neighborhood Italian restaurant and the food was great but the service was awful. Just all around, the people were rude. Be ready for that. We're from Texas. Most people greet you with a smile and/or a handshake. Not the case here...
3. The commute in to the city was at least 1 hour. We drove 30 minutes to the ferry. It's the St. George Terminal by the way (took us a while to figure it out). It costs $.8.00 to park either at the municipal lot or a private lot nearby. Parking is free on Sunday. The lady on the shuttle from the parking lot was the nicest person we met on our entire trip! Then once at the ferry, the ride in to the island was about 20 minutes. It's beautiful though. From the terminal, you can hop on the subway to get where you're going.
Again, the house was wonderful and VERY comfortable. Next time, we won’t stay so far from the city.
Dear Tonya, I am very sorry to hear for people being rude to you but New Yorkers are not as polite in general as where you are from. I always admire how nice and polite people are anywhere else in the US. Unfortunately not everything is under my control.
Perfect place and locatoon
The house was awesome. It was very clean and supplied well. It was a perfect location for my family. Easy to get to public transportation. We took the ferry everyday. After enjoying the city we were able to come back to relax in very quite atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this house and would like to return in the future. Thank you
Lettie, I always would love to host you in my house!

Really loved this house.
Really impressed with how clean the house was and the neighborhood was pretty quiet. Owner was helpful and always answered my qeustions right away which was which was really nice. The house was also nice and big. We had 7 people there and didn’t ever feel cramped. Plenty of room for 7 or 8.

Awesome Property - Great Property Owner
House is beautiful. Owner is kind and considerate and easy to work with. Area is calm and quiet which is a nice break from the busy New York style. There is a beautiful backyard. The owner was flexible in allowing us to check out a little later. Would definitely recommend and the price was great! You won't go wrong staying here. Everything went smooth and the house is spacious and super clean! Thanks Marina
