Urban Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our brief stay in Rockaway Beach at April's condo. The condo is spacious and comfortable, and all was immaculately clean when we arrived. The building is reasonably new and beautifully maintained, with security in the lobby at night. Parking was always available on the street directly in front. The quick walk to the beach led past similar apartment buildings. The beach itself is fantastic- a very wide fine-sand beach that stretches for miles.

In the condo there are two large bedrooms with hardwood floors, one with a queen-sized bed and the other a full. There was also a comfortable air mattress. The bathroom is very large and updated with a bathtub/shower. The kitchen is well-equipped for take-out dining, and there are lots of great options nearby. We especially liked Rockaway Tacos for carry-out, and Uma's for a dine-in ethnic restaurant. Ripper's on the boardwalk has the traditional beach snacks that make a day at the ocean complete.

April was very responsive in answering questions before our arrival, and her brother was on hand to meet us on our arrival. We didn't encounter any difficulties during our stay, but I have no doubt that they would have been available to help us if we had. We really appreciated the wine and the water bottles they provided for us!

Great location in Rockaway/Very clean with great amenities

  • 4 of 5

We had no idea what to expect in Rockaway. It's not very touristy, so if you are looking for more action... go to Long Beach. However, if you want to surf and enjoy the peace of the beach, then this is your spot. Reggie and April were fantastic to work with. They were extremely responsive from the day we booked to our last day there. We were able to arrive early and it was freshly cleaned. The people before us left some beer, wine, waters and other unopened perishables and non perishables. So check the cupboards and fridge before you head out to the store. They will have plenty of sandwich bags now!

The place is large. Really large. My son slept on the sofa, but there are also two recliners in the living room if one chooses. My daughter took the middle room and of course my hubby and I had the master. Keep in mind there is only an a/c unit in the master and living area. If sleeping in the middle room during the summer it can get a little warm, but definitely manageable!

We loved the two beach chairs, umbrella and cooler that were provided. It was a great plus and put to use.

Two things I would add: While there is a huge bar eating area with two stools... I would have liked a small round table of sorts to eat with the family and to play games/cards. Also, no hair dryer... I never pack mine since everywhere I've stayed has one. This is not a deal breaker. I survived. Just wanted to give anyone that uses one on a daily basis, a heads up!

Thanks Reggie and April for letting us use your home WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great location and great communication from owner

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for us because we were travelling with someone who has mobility issues. There were no stairs. There is a tub so the unit is not wheelchair accessible but it worked for us. The location was nice. We always found parking and there were no issues with leaving the car on the street. The boardwalk was beautiful and the people were friendly. The owner responded to us in a very timely manner. We went to Rippers for the local Rockaway brew and then found a great pizza place called Elegante Pizza. There was live music at Rippers on Saturday night. This seemed to be a neighborhood with lots of young children - plenty of strollers and kids on bikes on the boardwalk. Overall a great experience and if we ever need to be in Rockaway again I would definitely contact Reggie. Thanks Reggie!!!

We absolutely fell in love with this beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Rockaway Beach. The condo is very spacious & very well maintained. The owners were very helpful & returned our messages very quickly. The beds & pillows were comfy. The building is right across from the beach & boardwalk which was perfect for us to take a morning run or an evening walk on the beach. It is also conveniently located to a market, restaurants, and the subway. We rented a car for the week & had no problem finding a place to park the car. The view from every room and the balcony was so pretty, at night you could see the skyline of the city in the distance.

The kitchen was set up with pretty much all you need, it could possibly use a big pot to boil water for pasta but we were still able to get it done.

Let's just say we could live here we liked it so much! We found our new vacation getaway.
