                                                              Thank you for staying in my three bedroom waterfront home in Broad Channel New York City your business is greatly

                                                              Great Place to Stay

                                                              Melissa P.

                                                              We were a group of three adults and five kids ages 12 and 13 years old from DC and Boston, meeting in the middle. This was the perfect house for us. There were enough bathrooms (one on each of the three floors) and enough space to stretch out. Broad Channel is a small, quiet place that looks like a fishing village. The kids went out on the deck, dock, and walked around town. They went to the nearby school yard, bought a pizza at a shop nearby, got to know a cat who was wandering around, and found "treasures" on the curbs as they walked through town. It is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. The view from the deck was beautiful, and there was a big table and chairs out there where we could eat and admire the view. There was no problem with airport noise when we were there. The beds were comfortable. There was parking right beside the house. When we went into Manhattan, we used the subway. It was raining that day, so we drove to the subway stop and easily found a parking spot there. It's a short drive to Rockaway Beach. Michael and his family were very responsive and accommodating. If you want to visit the city and get away from it, too, stay here. We would stay here again.

                                                              comfortable stay away from the city

                                                              Chris N.

                                                              the space was just right for us; plenty of room and the extra bathrooms were perfect. The location is just far enough from the city to still be in the city but away from the hustle and bustle. It's a short walk to the train/subway and a block from the mini market.

                                                              Very nice place to stay

                                                              Bettina W.

                                                              To stay in this house was a very good decision as we could combine city tours in NYC (easy access to metro going straight downtown) and still come back after an exhausting day to a peaceful home. The view from the bedrooms is incredible and good weather allows you to enjoy the skyline of NYC sitting on the balcony. There is a park not to far away where one can go for a walk or a run. The owner provided very good customer service. It was mostly clean in the house and there were all things necessary for cooking available. Conclusively, it met our expectations and we enjoy to come back one time. We would definitely recommend this property.

                                                              New York Waterfront

                                                              We had a fantastic time staying in this wonderful house, the views of NYC were amazing. All 6 of us loved coming back after long day of walking to relax in comfort and peace.

                                                              Nice Place to Visit NYC with a Small Town Feel

                                                              Julie M.Near Milwaukee

                                                              By husband and I visited with our children and their respective significant others. We are from a very small town in Wisconsin and wanted to see New York City. The location was perfect for us. We were able to take the train into the City, and appreciated the ability to come home to relax in a small town atmosphere in Broad Channel at the end of the day. The neighborhood was very friendly, as was Michael. We could shop at the small nearby liquor store and grocery store. My daughter, my son's girlfriend, and I got pedicures for an extremely good price (and quality) at the nearby nail salon. Great customer service. My son could fish. We sat on the deck to view the skyline. I had concerns about the quality of the house after a December 2015 review. The people who wrote the review were COMPLETELY wrong about the place. It was clean and beautiful and felt like home. The views were awesome. I have girlfriends who want to visit New York for Broadway Shows. I will recommend to them we stay in this place.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              I appreciate your comments concerning Dec. review.
