About Natalia Assa

I am a part-time college instructor teaching European and Russian History at Pace University in Downtown Manhattan. My husband Jak is a NYC high school teacher and teaches Math and Social Studies. We started hosting guests in Summer 2014 and had the most positive experience. We met many talented young people and helped them get jobs, school admissions, and business contacts. Our guests report 100% satisfaction with our hospitality. Please come and enjoy the magnificent Rockaway Beach and Boardwalk. This is a great alternative way to see New York City.

Natalia Assa purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Natalia Assa chose Arverne


This unique vacation rental is located in an award winning master planned community Arverne By The Sea. It is built with all modern conveniences but with an old fashioned charm of a coastal village. The truly amazing thing about Arverne By The Sea is that it is a walking distance from the subway taking you into the heart of Manhattan, and at the same time it is right on the beach, in magnificent Rockaways. It is also convenient for long distance travelers arriving to JFK International Airport, two subway stops from our development.

What makes this townhome unique

You will love the openness and comfort of this vacation rental. The home opens straight into the living room/ dining room combination. Large windows amplify its spaciousness. In the summer Rockaway breeze adds a lovely salty air to our living room. All the modern conveniences are here, too - two bathrooms, laundry room, Wi-Fi and of course over 500 HD TV channels for your entertainment.

Our trip to New York

  • 4 of 5

We met a very nice family,who helped us a lot with planning our tours threw New York.

It is an amazing City,which showed us a lot of historie.

There are only two things which I want to say about the rooms,which we rent...

1. in one of the rooms is no window (used to be the garage),but Natasha made it very comfortable and my children had no problem with it...

2.there is a cat living in the house,which is very important for people with Allergy.You should know,that the cat is allways around and everywhere.

The house is only a few minutes from the beach,which was a wonderfull renew place(after Hurricane Sandy they renew the hole area)

We had a very great time ,even the weather was ok for our trip!!

Thank you for everything Natasha and best wishes to your family

Owner's Response: Thank you, Angelina, for a great review. It is true one of the rooms is a converted garage, so we welcome inquiries about it. The cat is 14 years old with a gentle character, easy to deal with. We clean all the time to keep allergens under control, so unless guests pet the cat they won't get allergy. You are welcome anytime and best regards to your lovely family. Natasha and Jak.

Our stay at the Rock

We were very happy with our accommodations and stay in a family setting in Rockaway. We shared a home with lovely people and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay with them.

Far Rockaways Get Away

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get out of the city and see the Rockaways so chose to stay with Natasha and Jak. The townhouse is shared, so you will share the bathroom, kitchen and common spaces. The bedroom is on the top floor and has a very nice terrace. The bed was comfortable. Everything is clean and the owners super friendly. There is no door leading to the top floor so be aware of that and there is a cat, in case you are allergic. But for those who don't mind sharing, this is a great way to explore the Rockaways in a clean, safe and friendly environment. It was less than a 10 minute walk to the beach and it is very close to the subway.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I was incredibly happy to stay at this property near the beach. It was lovely waking up to gentle sunlight and at night, feeling the ocean breeze. My room was private and comfortable, which was just what I needed to relax and unwind. There is a nearby YMCA and supermarket within walking distance. The YMCA offers a free day pass downloaded from online. I most enjoyed sitting on my terrace and having fun at the beach.

The owners were very welcoming and hospitable. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to me.

Owner's Response: Dana, thank you so much for your generous review! We welcome our guests to our home and community hoping to share with them this wonderful gem of New York City - Rockaway Beach. Unlike other beaches it still retains natural charm, with rugged dunes and abundant wildlife. The development us built as a charming throwback to gentler life in a coastal village, with lush landscaping and gorgeous vistas, yet has all modern amenities. The house is not palatial, but spacious enough to afford guests maximum privacy and comfort. What we cannot give in square feet we give in "square miles" of the heart. Please, stay in touch and come back any time.

Great! Great! Great! Next time again!

  • 5 of 5

Art First in German:

Wir waren 5 Tage (4 Nächte) in dieser Ferienwohnung und es war ein Erlebnis! Anfänglich hatten wir Bedenken, da sie etwas außerhalb liegt. Die Anbindung zur Meteo ist aber sehr sehr gut und auch abends kann man ohne Bedenken damit fahren!

Am ersten Tag haben wir eine kleine Führung im Haus und auch in der Umgebung bekommen. Was für ein toller Empfang!

Das Haus war super gepflegt, was wahrscheinlich daran liegt, dass die Vermieter mit im haus wohnen. Zu keiner Zeit hat es an irgendwas gefehlt! Angemerkt werden muss aber, dass der Flughafen nicht all zu weit entfernt ist. Wir waren Abends jedoch meist so k.o. waren, dass es uns nicht wirklich doll gestört hat.

Wenn wir wieder nach NYC kommen, wird dies unsere erste Wahl sein!

Now we try it in English:

The stay was really great!!! As we arrived we got a really nice tour trought the house and the nearer neighborhood. The family is really polite and super nice!

The connection to the public transportation is really good, easy to use and secure.

If we travel to NYC again, we would choose this accommodation again! Thanks a lot!!!
