Original beach bungalow in Far Rockaway, half a block from the beach, 1h 10 from Manhattan by direct subway. Sleeps 6 people comfortably. Heating, wi-fi, equipped kitchen, bath, backyard with grill.
* We do not allow late-cancellations due to bad weather.
The bungalow is 500 square feet, with three separate bedrooms each with a double bed, a living room with a small couch. Sleeps six comfortably (sharing beds, of course). Fully equipped kitchen and bath, towels, sheets, and blankets provided. There is no tv, microwave or washer/dryer in the bungalow. The bungalow is a rustic getaway from our everyday lives, and does not offer amenities of a hotel. If you're looking for that hotel life, please - this is not for you. There's a front porch and a backyard with a charcoal grill. Half a block to the gorgeous beach (*update: the boardwalk is closed for reconstruction until Memorial Day 2017, so there is no beach access from our block) Perfect summer getaway for a group of friends looking to enjoy the beach (but still in NYC), perfect winter getaway for artists or writers.
You will have access to a charcoal grill and small back area.
If possible, we will meet you at the bungalow to give you keys and show you around. Otherwise we will leave the keys in a secure location for you to access the bungalow.
There are no restaurants or bars in the direct vicinity (there is a deli around the block, and a large supermarket in a mall 10 min walk away). However, Rockaway is full of amazing new restaurants & bars. You can jump on the Q22 bus and be there in 20 min, or take a sweet and easy bike ride along the boardwalk.
There is no AC in the bungalow. The living room has a ceiling fan and each room is equipped with a portable fan. The beach is always a little cooler than the city, but NYC summers can get hot and there's no escaping it.
We will also require that you pay for gas in the winter if the weather is very cold and you use a lot of gas for heat. We will read the gas meter at the beginning and at the end of your stay if this applies.
The bungalow accommodates 6 people. If you are planning on having a small get-together or party during your stay (with more people than the bungalow is originally booked for) you need to consult with us first. It's a beach-loving-fun-chill-vibes kind of place - but not a party house. It's all about respect.
