  • For those unfamiliar with the Rockaways it's directly under JFK and far from peaceful. 747 literally drown out conversation. The surf apartment was tidy however the outside area was neglected and felt very off season. For the price I would have expected a bit more care in the presentation, we were discussing a discount with the host but I feel like we were not sufficiently discounted for the construction debris that was everywhere. Next door there is an abandoned home that is quite unpleasant and had construction work over the weekend. Neighbourhood also feels quite unsafe.

  • Full great experience for a french family (2 adults, 2 children) !
    We spent very beautiful moment in the appartment.
    We stayed 3 weeks and we enjoyed !
    150 meters to the metro (Manhattan 45 min) / Beach 50 meters.
    The environnment is calm and quiet / great restaurants around /
    Thanks for all Jen and Joe !

  • My fiancee and I absolutely LOVED our bungalow by the sea! Jen & Joe met us when we got there, gave us a quick tour of the house, some suggestions for Rockaway, and then we had the place to ourselves! I worked while there, via WebEx, on their FAST internet all week (I was getting 25mbps both ways, for you geeks out there), and my fiancee hung out in the loft, watching the surf come in and out. Rockaway's a goofy town, but fun and more importantly, the beach is right there. No complaints here - thanks Jen and Joe!!! RECOMMENDED A+++++

  • Price and location are hard to beat, and we were allowed to park in a driveway adjacent to the property. Very short walk to the beach and within driving distance to a grocery store. We stayed at the apartment in December and were frustrated with the lack of control over temperature. When the heat was turned off, it was too cold. When the heat was turned on, it was too hot. The freezer inside the refrigerator is missing its door, so the refrigerator froze our eggs. Another point of frustration was the creaky bamboo bed, which lacks a real headboard, so my pillow kept slipping behind the bed at night. Finally, we stayed in a bottom apartment and could hear every step taken by the people walking in the apartment above. Sometimes, it sounded like people were moving furniture.

    Despite these frustrations, the apartments appear to be freshly renovated, have a comfy modern feel (beach theme), and served the purpose of providing a roof over our heads during a short stay in Far Rockaway. Free WIFI and cable service were very much appreciated, and the kitchen was helpful for the little cooking that we did. Finally, there is a dresser in the bedroom to store clothes during your stay.

  • Appartement trés agréable, propre et calme , quoiqu'un petit peu éloigné de Manhattan.
    Jen et Joe sont charmants et nous ont trés bien accueillis.
