I have three waterfront vacation rentals available to rent.  The first two rentals are two private, three bedroom waterfront houses. These houses are semi-attached. Each unit has three bedrooms with 2 full baths and a 1/2 bath on the first floor.  It is a five block walk to New York City’s mass transit system.  The train to downtown Manhattan is an approximately 45 minute ride.  The minimum stay is for 3 nights at $125 to $260 per night for up to 6 guests.  These homes may be rented for 7 nights at $800 to $1600 (USD).  A 25% deposit is required to reserve this property.  Additional guests cost $140 per week for adults and $75 for children. In addition, a $300 security deposit is required. Security deposits will be returned after owner inspection of the property. Deductions will be made for any property damage.  

The second property is an artist’s studio.  This spacious "artist studio" is a two story, fully equipped house, the bedrooms are on the second floor 18'x24' the first floor is 18' x 32' kitchen and studio area, the bath is 6'x 10'. The house is built on pilings over Jamaica Bay, within an intimate colony of homes accessible by a 300-foot boardwalk over the tidal marshlands.  There is one queen one double and one single bed.  The cost is $1050 to  $1350 per week (7 nights) for up to four guests.  A 25% deposit  is required to make a reservation.  The home may also be rented on a nightly basis with a three night minimum stay at $170 to $225 per night.  The weekly rate for additional guests are $140 per adult and $75 per child. In addition, a $300 security deposit is required. Security deposits will be returned after owner inspection of the property. Deductions will be made for any property damage.

Both homes are located on Jamaica Bay in Broad Channel, Queens.  Here guests will enjoy beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and breathtaking sunsets.  Guests will benefit from this ideal location.  Not only will guests have the benefit of being a short ride away from one of the world’s greatest cities, they will also take pleasure in the beautiful peaceful surroundings of Broad Channel and Rockaway. These neighborhoods are ideal for boating, fishing, swimming, surfing, bird watching or walks along the beach.


Broad Channel is just 20 minutes from Kennedy Airport.   This neighborhood consists of single family homes, public parks which include with handball and tennis courts.  Small boats can be rented at a local fishing station within walking distance.  Guests may visit the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge which is a 15-minute walk.  A 5 to10 minute bus ride will bring guests to Rockaway Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.  Rockaway Beach is one of New York City’s public beaches where you can enjoy swimming, surfing and surf fishing.  Lifeguards are on duty from late May through early September.

from guests visiting from the Netherlands (April 2008)
"The property is well described by the owner who, by the way is very friendly and provides very good service. Everything in his description is accurate. The view from the living room deck is awesome. It is a new clean home in old and friendly neighborhood. We all felt very safe walking home from the train station in the middle of the night. Get the 5/7 day train pass for $25 this allows you to travel all day/night in the city by train/subway/bus. We had no car but we shopped for fresh bread,eggs,juice etc at the little store two blocks away and in the morning we walked about a mile or 8 blocks to get fresh bagels. Do not forget to get pizza at the corner next to the store. All 7 of us want to thank Michael for taking care of us,we had a great time. Would love to come back and stay here again."
