It just got a whole lot easier to take a tiny trip to the beach.

This summer, vacation rental service Getaway has partnered with Gateway National Recreation Area and the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy to bring their signature tiny houses to the beach in New York City.

Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to rent one of three houses placed on a beach somewhere in the Gateway National Recreation Area. The company releases the exact address of the houses a week before your stay, but we’re told their location is about a 30-minute Uber ride from Prospect Park.

Earlier this year, we tried one of the company’s minimal, well-designed tiny house rentals that was located in the Catskills, a few hours north of NYC. The affordable escape from the city was not only a blast, but also featured plenty of nice amenities, a gorgeous interior and stunning views of the surrounding nature.

The ethos at the heart of the company, that busy, young Urbanites need a space to escape not only the city, but modern-day technology as well, is present in everything from a smartphone lockbox to an “adjusting back to the city” guide. The houses are also completely off the grid.

You can find more information about booking one of this summer’s pop-up waterfront cabins here. You’ll receive directions, and a private key code to enter the house, a week in advance. Getaway also holds on to a a few nights at their houses for last-minute availability, so if the dates you’re looking for aren’t available, check back into the site at 10am closer to then.
