"I agree with all the other posts that Aamir tries hard to make your stay a pleasant one. He responded to every email, phone call, and text quickly. You can count on him to follow through quickly to any request you might have.
The house is older, but comfortable and clean. Plenty of towels, and sheets and if you have more than a couple of people, there are various arrangements you can try--like someone sleeps in the living room or the game room, etc.
Nice kitchen, bathrooms (although, as pointed out, both baths are up the stairs), comfortable beds. Not all of the electrical outlets seem to work, but the ones that do work are in the most important locations.
Just so you will not be surprised, I will mention that the man next door has a motorcycle he revs up each night at 11:30 and each morning at 6:30 and it is pretty loud. Also, something inside the house beeps every 15 minutes--not a loud beep, but noticeable enough that all of us tried to find the source, but never did---but it's no big deal.
Subway a short walk. From there, a 32 minute ride to Times Sq, or if you are going to Flushing (the opposite direction) 10 minutes. The bakery mentioned in so many reviews very much worth a visit. Several small grocery markets nearby--(5 minute walk)and we found a nice, larger Ideal Grocery Store up the hill and turn left where five streets come together--a wide selection and worth the walk.
I will join those who suggest you not have a car. Streets are narrow, people double park, etc. Fire hydrants every few feet, it seems to me. On the average I drove around 20 to 25 minutes to find a parking place each night when coming in. The worst night was when I actually drove around 45 minutes---I nearly cried.
I might also suggest you take a couple of rolls of paper towels--the house has plenty of soap, dishwasher soap, dishes, cups, glasses, salt, pepper, etc but no paper towels or napkins.
Clean, comfortable, tv and wi fi, good location. The key question for me is whether or not we would ever stay there again. And the answer is: yes we would! A pleasant stay and really nice hosts make it a really, really good choice. And, worthwhile. We figured we saved over $800 from what we would have paid had we stayed at a hotel in Flushing."
