This 'weird little paradise' on the water is a boathouse within a private Rockaway Beach marina called The Franco. The owner of this home says a stay here means you'll be a part of a quaint artist, surfer, fisherman community just two blocks from the beach. You'll get full reign of the boat, which has a full kitchen, an outdoor grill, air conditioning, a full bathroom, and two longboards on the side of the boat you can surf with. Plus, the vibe is just plain cool.
New York City has a fair share of scenic waterfront Airbnb stays that can provide that beachy vibe you may be looking for.
