Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Whitestone - Whitestone Waterfront

Beautiful & Quiet Waterfront, 20 min from Manhattan by Car. Free Parking & WIFI.

You won't believe how beautiful and serene this waterfront community is unless you had been here. It's the best kept secret area in NYC. It's very quiet. It doesn't have the typical crazy traffic of NYC and yet you're closed to everything by car. Forget about driving 6 hour round trip to the Hampton from Manhattan, instead in 20 min, you would feel like you're on vacation arriving to a waterfront resort. The house was built in 2006 with high ceilings, wood floors, granite counter-top kitchen and bathrooms, Stainless Steel Appliances and large windows and doors for the view of the water. The owner also hired a professional, home theater engineer to install the surround theater sound with HD Plasma Flat Screen TV in the living room. Balcony, dining room, living room and kitchen all have a spectacular view of the bridge, water and garden. There is also a Steinway Piano, so bring your music books. #15A Bus Stop is two blocks away, 20 min bus ride to #7 Subway Main Street Station in Flushing(Chinatown).

Simply Great!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my Dad stayed here for a couple of days while we were on a golf vacation around the city. The place was perfect in every sense of the meaning. First off great location, very quiet and nice neighborhood that was an awesome place to come back to after a day of golfing. Second the house was amazing, WOW is all I can say about it, completely top shelf in every sense with a great view of the East River, sitting out on the balcony and watching things go by was very cool. Third Grace was super. Very nice and so helpful in so many things, we didn’t have any problems but I know if we did she would have taken care of them in a heartbeat. I have no doubt that if we get back to the city we are for sure going to book here again, thank you so much Grace!

My family stayed at this property and we could not be more delighted. What an AWESOME experience! The views were breathtaking and the house was clean and extra comfortable. This was the perfect accommodations for what we needed. The owner Grace Kelly is a super phenomenal lady and her assistant Linda is wonderful. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying there again. The Lopez Family thanks you so much :)

It's exactly what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice now & am planning my 3rd stay in a few months. I needed a place that was calm, quiet & safe & I got that & a whole lot more! The house has all the lovely amenities & is decorated very tastefully & quite comfortable. There is a full kitchen that is beautifully laid out & has all the "kitchen wares" available for use. The 2 smaller bedrooms are quite comfortable & the 1st bathroom is bright & lovely. The Master Suite is AMAZING! The bed is sooooo comfortable & there is a beautiful master bath fully equipped w/separate shower & jacuzzi tub. It's heaven! The outside deck is by far my favorite. The view is stunning & it's quite calming, right there on the waterfront. It's conveniently located w/easy access to the parkways & parking right out front. I highly recommend this place for a quiet, comfortable & convenient stay in Queens!

Lovely home with beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting NYC from Florida and wishing to stay in Whitestone as a reminiscence of living there many years ago. Our hostess, Grace, was lovely and gracious; her home was perfect for our family. The village of Whitestone has interesting restaurants and shops and easy access to subways for going into the city. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept. After a day of sightseeing we all looked forward to coming home and lounging on the deck overlooking the water. A great mix of being in NYC and its hustle and bustle then to Whitestone for complete relaxation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. Whitestone is a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. Being conveniently located and yet on the East River waterfront with more than 4000ft of garden is special and unique in NYC. Glad to know that you and your family enjoy your stay. It was wonderful to host you all and hope to see you soon.

Relaxing week in Queens

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank Grace for the use of her wonderful house. We had a great time in the house which had all that you would need to have a comfortable time. We were made most welcome. Despite the weather, which was mixed, we had an easy trip to golf and tennis (Flushing Meadows).

We would recommend the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Raymond, it was my utmost pleasure to host you and your lovely, polite and very quiet family. Hope you would come back again in the Summer when the flowers in the garden are bloomed and the water is warmer for the beach.
