  • nothing hidden and extremely nice owner. thanks for the great stay!

    "When we got to New York the owner had already sent us all the information we needed (address, key code, WiFi password). Cab fare was about $30 to the apartment from LaGuardia . There was a sign on the inside door welcoming us and letting us know which door was to our apartment. The apartment was cute, just like the pictures and clean. There is no living room and you get exactly whats in the pictures. The kitchen is equipped with the basics and we lacked for a pitcher for iced tea, a measuring cup, and wash clothes but we still managed. Some of the furniture was a little rickety and the beds are quite firm. Plenty of towels and pillows were provided. The owner came by and met with us the next morning and asked if we needed anything and provided us with some extra blankets. He was a very nice and gracious man and we felt genuinely welcomed. He also allowed us to stay a couple hours late on check out (because we had an evening flight out) free of charge. Everything worked (although the toilet is a bit wobbly) and we had no trouble with heat or hot water. The laundry room is downstairs and is a pay laundry so you'll need some quarters,$1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry. You can hear quite a bit through the walls and we had some noisy downstairs neighbors for a couple nights but they did keep it down once we told them we were heading to bed. The subway is only about 3 minute walk around the corner, and there is a grocery store, Walgreens, fast food, locale food, liquor store, taverns and more all within walking distance. All in all, it was a great place to stay to experience Queens, we didn't feel unsafe and it was very convenient to the rest of NYC. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!"

  • Nice apartment outside of bustling Manhatten

    "Firstly this is a great apartment that can easily accommodate a party of up to eight people. Our party was myself, elderly mother and two teenage boys and we had bags of room to kick about in. Some parts of the apartment are showing signs of wear and tear but overall it's in good condition and had all facilities you would want - even a kettle for tea making which of course us Brits love! Christina was extremely helpful and answered all my queries - of which there were many and really accommodating letting us store our bags until our flight which was early evening. As others have said, the area was great and we didn't at all feel intimated or concerned about the neighbourhood. Local amenities/shops were really handy. Things to consider however: 1. With the subway ride and the walk to the station it can add 30 mins on your journey into Manhatten and the subways were usually standing room only. There is of course the cost and it doesn't make it so easy to just drop off bags of shopping or take a break from the hustle and bustle for an hour or so. That said, it is much quieter than staying in Manhatten (which we've done before) without all the traffic noise and car horns blasting 24/7. 2. If you are in the lower floor apartment - be wary of the neighbours above! Ours were extremely noisy and quite inconsiderate waking us from early hours at 6am right through until gone midnight - so not good for those light sleepers - they were like a herd of elephants and very loud! 3. Being in the neighbourhood you are subjected to general daily life noise - building work was going on nearby so on top of noisy neighbours you had construction noise - however please see note re noise of staying in Manhatten! Overall though, a nice place to stay and we would certainly consider using again"

  • Above Satisfaction!! A Heavenly Place in Flushing!

    "This place was well above our expectations. We normally stay in hotels but this year decided to stay at Luis's property. We are so happy we did. Thank you Luis for being so kind to my family and I. We enjoyed our stay since the first day we arrived. My wife and I really loved the place. Thanks for you advise. Thank you!!!"

  • Convenient Location for a visit to NYC

    "We were the very first people to stay here, so I'll try to do a concise good vs. bad for the benefit of all. First, this property is not a "vacation rental". It is the home of a family, so you are living amongst their "stuff" (at least the stuff they don't lock away before you get there). This didn't bother us; we are respectful renters and took good care of their property. The location of this home is fantastic. You are about 1.5 blocks from the subway, around the corner from one of the main streets in Astoria. There are SO MANY ethnic restaurants in the area, so there are numerous dining options. If you choose to use the kitchen in the home, there is a supermarket only a few blocks away. (Actually, there are a couple of choices.) The house provides sleeping space for 7-8 people. There is a VERY comfortable 2 person bed in the master bedroom. single bunk beds in the kid's room. There is a double sleeper sofa in the living room and a double bed in the basement. There are two bathrooms, both with showers. There is a nice kitchen and a dining area. The neighborhood felt very, very safe. I believe the owners allow pets with prior arrangement. Cable TV and Netflix are available, and the wifi works beautifully. The downside: There is a beautiful bathtub in the upstairs bathroom, but you can't use it. Such a shame. Plenty of towels are available, but the owners did not provide any washcloths. There were not blankets for all the beds. We used one of the blankets from the master bed for the sleeper sofa. The heat in the house works TOO well. We kept it off most of the time. The house was TOO warm! The washer and dryer are old and don't work very well. The dryer squeals, but the owners know about that. The kitchen has minimal dishware. We had 5 people staying in the house, and my daughter and a friend came over for meals. There were barely enough glasses for beverages for all. It's not a cook's kitchen. There is only the bare minimum of pots, pans, cookware. The microwave does not work, which can be a REAL problem for travelers. It makes it difficult to heat up restaurant leftovers. There were no kitchen towels, so no way to dry dishes that could not go in the dishwasher. We ended up using a lot of paper towels. One thing to know, the owners require all adults staying at the residence to provide picture IDs in advance of your stay. According to VRBO this is legal. I've never encountered that requirement before."
