Great stay in Queens

  • 5 of 5

Recently completed a fabulous ten days at Asaf and David's lovely home in Queens, NY. The location was ideal for a party of five from the Caribbean, with easy access to transportation for our regular shopping and site seeing trips. The house is quite spacious and ideal for small or large groups. The beds are comfortable, the a/c functions well and all the required amenities are provided for a comfortable stay. The kitchen deserves special mention (yes we love to cook). It is extremely large and well stocked, easily facilitating the daily preparation of meals.

While we did not get an opportunity to meet Asaf in person, he was quite helpful in communicating all the relevant details leading up to our arrival in Queens. However, we were quite fortunate to meet David who was extremely hospitable and a delight to chat with. He made us feel at home, provided useful information and even assisted in arranging transportation at a very stressful time for our departure to the airport at the end of our stay.

This is our second VRBO vacation rental and like the first, it did not disappoint. Thank you David and Asaf for facilitating our wonderful vacation in New York.

good location for a family

We enjoyed staying at 141-25 Grand Central and were totally satisfied. David is a good host who was helpful all the way through, especially organizing transportation to the Airport at the end of our stay.

Thank you!

Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a comfortable stay for a family of 7. There are three rooms for us. Host provides towels, shampoo, kitchen utensils, etc. They even provide computer and printer for us to print out tourism info. Walking distance to subway. We took subway to Manhattan everyday for 3 days. Though it takes about 12-15 mins each way for the family members, but it's acceptable. Walking distance to a small grocery store, restaurant, and laundry mat.
