For those looking for a kid-and pet-friendly summer rental for a fun beach getaway, this two-story Colonial on Forester Street in Long Beach’s East End is the perfect staycation destination.
The four-bedroom newly renovated house has 1.5 bathrooms, an open layout, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, central air conditioning, private parking spot, outdoor area and boat slip that can fit up to a 40-footer. It sits right on the canal and only a half a mile from the beach — 10 minutes on foot and five minutes by bicycle.
“The house is comfortable and cozy and has everything you need,” says Robin Amato, a realtor with Realty Connect USA who is representing the property. “The area is great for families and boaters. We are very close to Roosevelt playground and Pacific Beach has a playground and concession stand.”
She adds, “It’s a little quieter and not as busy as the West End.”
The seaside community known as the “City by the Sea,” is close to all that Long Beach has to offer — the boardwalk, the juice bars, coffee houses, farmers market, and all sorts of cuisine — so there is always something to do. There are also activities including surf lessons, beach yoga, beach volleyball and even trapezing on the beach.
“We have our summer film festival on the beach and two craft fairs during the months of July and August that are fun for the entire family,” Amato says.
For weekly commuters, a direct Long Island Rail Road train links Long Beach to Penn Station and the Atlantic Terminal in just under an hour.
“Everything is within walking distance so for someone from Manhattan who may not have a car, it is easy to get around, and if you want to go further into town there is public transportation,” adds Amato.
The single-family home is available from Memorial Day through Labor Day for $35,000. For those who are interested in a monthly rental, the rates are $10,000 for June, $17,000 for July and $15,000 for August. As a little incentive, Amato is offering free beach passes to any new tenants.
