The Best New York place we have ever stayed in!
"Every time we have visited New York City in the past decade it has gone without question that we stay in Manhattan: we have rented apartments from the East Village to midtown. They all had one benefit – a handy location – and each also had its own selection of drawbacks: dirty, crammed with the owner’s unloved and unlovable belongings, uncomfortable and/or too tiny to swing a cockroach, let alone a cat.
For our May-June 2015 trip, our search for a Manhattan apartment was complicated by needing beds for five people rather than our usual two. Everything remotely possible that turned up in searches was also horribly cramped and ridiculously expensive. We reluctantly expanded the search to Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx – and stumbled across these apartments in Long Island City.
They turned out to be the best New York place we have ever stayed in, in terms of both the location and the apartments themselves.
They are not in Manhattan, but they are so close it makes no difference. You get amazingly wonderful views of that famous skyline from the banks of the East River, just a five-minute stroll if you take a left at the front door. A mere minute or so in the other direction takes you to a subway station from which the reliable 7 train will carry you to Grand Central Station in three or four minutes.
The neighbourhood is relaxed and feels very safe. Most of the people you see around are young couples with a kid or three in tow. They aren’t tourists; they live here. And much as you might love the great pulse of humanity that is so much a part of NYC, it’s kind of nice to pop up from the subway at the end of a hectic day to a place where there’s room on the streets. Despite the relative quiet, the area has a go-ahead hum and in three weeks we by no means exhausted the offerings of the bars, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity.
The apartments (we had two, White and Orange) are thoughtfully and comfortably set up. Without being vast, they feel airy and open. The practicalities are well taken care of and the owners have brought an artistic sensibility to everything that means they are also just very pleasant places to be. Even the stairwell is a mini art gallery. They are really good value.
And Manhattan? Well, it’s still a great place to visit … or just say the word at the charming new Station Bar on Jackson Avenue and they’ll mix you a pretty neat one."

"This was a first time experience with HomeAway and indeed it was surprisingly WONDERFUL! Everything you need (and extra) is provided with smiles. The owners accommodated us warmly, and we had absolutely no complaints. If you want a perfect and peaceful experience...this is worth your try! Thanks again for a great stay!"

"My husband and I were in town to visit family in NJ, but wanted to be close to the city to do things in NYC too. So the location was perfect, close to the subway, but with affordable parking options close by. The area was very interesting to explore too, lots of shops, restaurants nearby.
The apartment was exactly how the pictures look, clean and spacious! My husband loved the Tempur Pedic mattress, and keeps talking about it even now that we are home. Some nice touches: I liked that there little green space outside too, air conditioning (it was hot while we were there), the binder provided on everything from restaurants to things about the apartment. We didn't get a chance to meet Jessica & Jason (the owners), but their communication was great through phone and email, very helpful and friendly. We only had one thing we wish (and it's a small thing)- hooks in the bathroom would be helpful, as there wasn't a place to grab a dry towel after showering easily or hang up a robe or clothes to change into. But overall, our stay was great and we would definitely consider staying here next time we are in town! :)"

"I would definitely recommend the Amy's apartments! I stayed there for more than one month and everything was just as I imagined (and dreamed). The apartment is exactly as shown in pictures and the whole house is very beautiful. Amy was always very kind with me and helped me in everything I needed.
The city of Bayside is very safe and the LIRR Train Station is only 10 minutes walking from the apartment (US$ 9.00 oneway) - the train takes 30 minutes to Manhattan.
I will definitely come back on my next trip to NY!"
