I am renting my lovely one bedroom apartment that is located in a waterfront property with nice view over Long Island Sound. It is a great place to relax if you need to work in NYC, and still would like to feel on your own island! If you love the city, and do not want to forgo a nice outdoor life, my place cannot get any better for you, biking or hiking to NYC's largest park (Pelham Bay Park), fishing, boating, golf, horseback riding, jogging. For beach lovers, the Orchard Beach is also in fair walking distance.
“Wow this is by far the BEST Airbnb experience so far. I have stayed on Fire Island a lot, but this was a wonderful and convenient option. I have been in NYC for over 30 years and visited City Island, but never stayed over night. Noelva and Alex are spectacular hosts. The apartment was right out of a decor magazine with a small private beachfront Get off your butt and GO!”
City Island is a small community at the edge of New York City just beyond Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx and surrounded by the waters of the Long Island Sound and Eastchester Bay. Enjoy the water views and seafood restaurants or nearby Orchard Beach.
“Diane's place was just fabulous. Sparkling clean. So often you check into an airbnb place and its cringworthy... not here.. just perfectly maintained. Adorable place which though compact is actually very well laid out and feels very spacious and is very livable. The updated bathroom is actually large and super clean feeling... no hesitation to take a shower, etc... The kitchen is well appointed and the sleeping area actually quite relaxing. Lots of lovely touches throughout the house too. Very quiet, private and secluded area (even though neighbors houses are close to each other) and and a only few steps away from the water... you can see the water from the house too. Diane was very friendly, easy to connect with and responded to me very quickly. City Island is a fun place to stay too... lots of quaint shops and good sea food restaurants. I would like to stay there again!”
