Thank you for your stay
Happy New Year safe ride home
The house was wonderful, central for all places we wanted to visit. The view OUTSTANDING. The owner was terrific, made us feel so welcome and any question we had, he replied to us quickly.
The train station a few blocks away from us was so convenient. The deli and ice cream store, one block away were great. Growing up in NY and missing the delicious food was easily remedied by ordering from the deli. The sandwiches and hot food was spot on.
The house has 3 bathrooms, 2 of them with a shower, tub or both, which made getting ready to start our day easier for the 5 of us. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware, pots, pans. There are some condiments in the pantry and we happily left some that we purchased. Plenty of towels, beds were comfortable. There is a washer/dryer in the house but not readily accessible. I contacted the owner and he arranged the day for us to use them. The house has 2 sides and the laundry room shared by both parties. It was no problem at all, and I understand completely how people can and do take advantage, so arranging with the owner was the right thing to do.
Every morning I started out having coffee on the deck, and every night relaxed on the deck taking in the NYC skyline and the gorgeous sunsets. My grandchildren had plenty of space to run around on the property and check out the fish, crabs seagulls and swans in the water.My granddaughter slept in the room on the 3rd floor, and loved looking out of the window seeing the water and the skyline. Easy access to parking off the street which was most helpful. When I visit my family in N.Y. again, I will plan my vacation on the dates available at this home. We had a fabulous vacation and this home and the owner played an important role in the successful stay.

Nice home! Well kept! Plenty of room for the 6 of us. Best feature was the view of Manhattan! We would definitely go back!

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.

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.

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.
