Lovely little place deep in the heart of Queens
"If Manhattan is not your thing and most certainly do not travel as I did from Jersey. Then, perhaps, this lovely little apartment may be perfect. Located in a heart of vibrant ethnic neighborhood, a stone's throw from JFK. This truly a nice little gem. I stayed here with my two small kids and I found everything that I needed was in the apartment. The owner ensured that I had a fully stocked larder because there is not a good supermarket very close to the apartment which was most helpful. Immaculately spotless and clean, with the owner there to provide every need. Made staying in New York a pleasure, about two blocks - although up a biggish hill (not San Francisco big) - from the Subway make this a prime location. Furthermore, cannot go wrong with its proximity to JFK.
However, rather far Manhattan and the nightlife that is there as Queens is considered a suburb of NYC proper. Quite a few good eateries are around the apartment but mainly Spanish in a predominantly South East Asian neighborhood. Streets were safe and quiet. Apartment sleeps 3 - two sharing a bed and one on a pull out sofa.
Many thanks to the host for providing such a wonderful apartment."

"During my stay, Yvette was an exceptionally thoughtful, responsive and accommodating host. When I picked up the keys from her the first night, she presented me with a box of herbal tea, gourmet coffee and plenty of DVD’s to watch to insure I felt at home in the place. She responded to text messages, and phone calls right away if I had any questions or concerns about the place. Her support staff, Patricia was also very kind and thoughtful, and kept the place clean, and also stocked the fridge with juice and snacks on my first day there. Very good-hearted people. In addition to these good people, the place I booked had a wonderful “cook’s” kitchen, well-stocked with pots, utensils, and beautiful dishes. Cooking in that kitchen, which I did frequently during my stay, was pure joy. The bathroom was newly renovated and quite clean. The place also has a backyard (private outdoor space in New York is a treasure) and I enjoyed sitting in the garden each morning as I sipped my tea. Quiet and peaceful, but the big city was nearby. The subway into Manhattan was about 5 blocks away and the ride into Manhattan 30-40 minutes. Thank you Yvette for giving this traveler a home away from home."

"The key for us was the good location and great neighbourhood. Unit was also relatively modern and clean. King size futon style bed was firm but reasonably comfortable. Kitchen is somewhat small but workable. Bathroom is also very small but gets the job done. Unit is ideal for a couple.
Just a couple of observations -
We experienced a lot of noise (until 1.00am one night) from the unit above. I think they may have been doing some renovation work. Even so you do hear people walking about in the unit above even during normal activity. As the unit is also on the ground floor at the entry to the building you will hear people going through the two doors at all times, day and night.
We also ran the wall aircon unit at one stage just to cool the place down and would have to say it would be very noisy if you had to run the unit during a hot night. I'm not sure I could sleep with the unit running. As I say, good unit that I would consider again but some reservations about the noise levels due to being ground floor and immediately adjacent to entry doors.."
