Interaction with Guests
You will see me more on the weekdays than on the weekends, but generally my family keeps me pretty busy.
Flushing Queens is a very safe and ethnically diverse neighborhood. The food here is authentic, delicious, and inexpensive.
The Q65 stops just footsteps away from my front door. The buses pass by frequently and the subway runs 24 hours a day. It takes about 40 minutes from my front door to midtown Manhattan. The train passes above ground the majority of the ride. Its a great way to see Queens. The neighborhood is very safe. You never have to worry about traveling at night.
Other Things to Note
Please note, this is not a hostel, it is not a motel, or a hotel, it is my home. Please be conscious that anything you break, I have to pay for.

When its time to check out, let me know, leave the guest room open and send me a message. We hope to see you again next time. :)
We had a wonderful time at Linda and Roberts house !
They are such warm , kind and interesting people .
Their home is the opposite of a brand new and slick hotel where you would be alone and forget it as soon as you left .
Their house may not be all new and flawless but it carries their warm and family friendly personality which was exactly what we where looking for .
They live mostly on the floor above so if you want some alone time without having to stay locked in your room it is easy but if you want to communicate with them they make equally easy .
Their kids are the most adorable and cutest !
The bed and pillows where really comfortable which is far from being often the case .
The almost all Asian neighborhood was safe at night and full of cheap and good eating options . Manhattan was a bit far away 30 to 60 mn ride but the subway line is quite direct .
Overall a great experience , we would definitely stay there again !
Linda's house is very beautiful and clean. And they have excellent background music. You can control volume by yourself. Linda is kindness and nice. The note book is very cute and useful. I'm glad to see them again.
It was very cool stay at Linda's house. There is a bus stop right in front of the house, you can ride this bus until the subway station. The room and bathroom were clean. The neighborhood seems to be quiet. My friends and I didn't have any problem in there. For sure if I go to NYC again I'd totally stay at her house again. Thanks Linda for the hospitality.
The owner wrote my name on the door of the room, just feel like my own room in my family. She is quite a beautiful woman who make her house so pretty. A lot of flowers in the house, I really like it.
Linda was a super kind host and was well prepared. Upon arrival, she gave us a quick tour of the living space. Inside the bedroom she had a binder filled with helpful information (how to get into the apartment, nearby train/bus routes, places to eat, emergency contact numbers, etc.). It was nice to have a TV in the room so that we could wind down in the evenings before going to sleep. Linda also went out of her way to provide an ironing board and iron; overall she was very helpful and hospitable.
The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable - our room was conveniently right next to the bathroom. Inside the bathroom there is a radio that is constantly playing classical music. At night we were able to hear the music from our room so we turned it down a bit to help sleep.
This location is walking distance to Main Street (a central place in Flushing) and it's easy to take the 7 train from there to get into the city. There is also a lot of great Chinese food in the area. The neighborhood is pretty safe at night as there were people out even around midnight.
Linda has two cats that are living on the roof outside the windows of the bathroom and bedroom we stayed in. They have fleas and are not allowed in the house - hopefully they will get better soon. They are really cute!
Linda was very helpful from the time we booked to the time we left. Her house is located a close walking distance to the Flushing Main Street station. The room was cozy and clean. Parking on the street was easy to find (on a Friday afternoon).
I would definitely stay at this place again. Thanks for having us over and see you soon!

About the Host, Linda
Me? I'm a happy house wife with a toddler girl, baby boy, and two cats. My kids keep me very busy so i usually stay upstairs and you have the rest of the apartment to yourself. Come to Flushing and discovery Asian pastries, bubble tea, Korean BBQ, best vegetarian restaurants around, beautiful parks, interesting shopping, and hand made noodles. Come to Flushing and visit the Unisphere from the worlds fair. There's more to New York than just Manhattan you know.
