Great overall experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay and the place is very clean. We normally stay in hotels but figured we would give it a try and we were very delighted. We were 5 and slept very comfortable. The owner was fantastic as well. Definatly worth 5 star.

Suzanne's place is beautiful; looks exactly like the pictures. Location very convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Location was convenient to train/subway stop - roughly fifteen minutes to Times Square. Plenty of really neat little restsurants within a two block radius. Suzanne's place was wonderful with many little extras included - a welcome basket and flowers are a very nice and appreciated touch. Never met Suzanne but then again didn't need to as communication was great beforehand.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I personally went to look at this apartment before choosing this one for my brother and his family visiting New York. It is extremely clean, convenient to the subway with quick and easy access to Manhattan and surrounded by the great restaurants and cafes Astoria has to offer.

Suzanne and Edgar have to be the most amazing hosts I have ever met. They went above and beyond in every way. Bottled water and ice tea in the fridge, the pantry was stocked with coffee and tea, even toiletries were provided. My brother and his family are celiacs and their welcome basket included fresh fruit and gluten free foods for them.

Suzanne even emailed my sister-in-law restaurants in Astoria where they could dine with gluten free items on the menu and a list of local stores where they could shop for gluten free products. My brother and his family were so impressed and loved everything about their stay and they look forward to booking your apartment next time they visit.

All the stellar reviews you have read about this apartment and the hosts are true and well deserved.

Thank you so much again Suzanne and Edgar.

Truly is the Jewel of Astoria!

  • 5 of 5

We lined up a quick trip to NYC and needed a place to stay for 3 nights. Fortunately, we found the Precious Jewel of Astoria! Owner is very responsive, got back to us immediately that the apartment was available for our dates. Transaction went smoothly, and we immediately had information on location and how to get in to the apartment. We really liked the keypad entry, eliminates the need to remember the key! We arrived at NYC at 8 AM, and spent most of the day at the USS Intrepid museum. When we arrived at the apartment, we were exhausted, thirsty and hungry. Inside we found a basket of treats, cold drinks in the fridge, and a fresh bouquet of beautiful flowers! These little touches really added to our stay! The apartment is truly as shown on the VRBO website. All furniture, appliances in great condition and worked properly. AC units also in great shape, and kept us cool during a very hot spell in the city. The apartment is tastefully decorated! Beds were comfortable, with adequate pillows and blankets. Kitchen included a Keurig coffee machine and plenty of K cups; This was a real plus for us. Plenty of glasses, mugs, plates, silverware to allow you to cook in the kitchen. The bathroom is fairly small, but typical for NYC apartments. Dish Net included on TV. And the apartment is clean, flooring is beautiful, paint is fresh and neatly applied. Overall, we had a great time staying in the Precious Jewel. One improvement would be to install different blinds in the main bedroom; the orange street light shines brightly into the room!
