Private room in a newly renovated environmental friendly house, conveniently located a block away from the beach, train station and best restaurants in Rockaway
Exactly what we needed and worth the price. We were in town for my cousin's wedding, and unfortunately, much of my family is still rebuilding from Sandy so we weren't able to stay with them. We just needed a private place to lay our head each night that was close to the train, and Leyla's place was perfect! I will say it is priced correctly so if you are looking for a bunch of amenities, this might not be the best place for you. This is a private bedroom in a home that is being renovated, but the room is spacious, there's a heater and AC unit, and most importantly, a private bathroom down the hall. We didn't need a kitchen or anything fancy, just a private room with a private bathroom. Leyla was a wonderful host - very responsive, checked on us to make sure we were taken care of, and very flexible. For what we needed, this fit the bill!
Leyla and her family were wonderful hosts and treated us like old friends. She was very flexible about check in and check out time. We were able to come in earlier and stay late, maximizing our time at the beach. The room is basic, clean, and sunny. The house is located in a great location: a 5 min walk to the beach and in the same block as the Playland bar. It's also very easy to take the bus up to Jacob Riis Park from the house. When we visited in late August, part of the house was under construction, but this in no way effected our room or stay. We had a wonderful time and the room was all we needed for the perfect beach retreat.
Loved staying with Leyla. She and her family/friends were very welcoming, accomodating, and some of the most friendly and passionate people I've met. The room is big and there is a private bath down the hall. If you are looking for a place just to lay your head while you enjoy Rockaway Beach, this is perfect. The part of the house where the room is is still being finished but it is still warm, welcoming, and clean. Also, note there is not kitchen for guests - only a sink. However, Leyla was nice enough to let us put a few items in their fridge and even invited us to thier BBQ on their beautiful deck one of the nights. Truly amazing people. Would defientely stay again!
