George was super nice and very accommodating. The house is very beautiful and you have a lot of privacy and room for yourself. The neighborhood is quiet but quite connected with the rest of the city.
me and my husband had a wonderful time staying at George house . him and he's wife are great hostess . .the house is very clean . and all of the guest are exellent .
I like the room very much, it was very clean and made me feel safe and comfortable. You can walk to the subway in 20minutes or ride the bus in 10 minutes also. George and Pat were very nice, they can give the help you need much more than you thought.
George and Pat were great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The room was perfect for our stay - it's spacious and very convenient for getting around, plus the neighborhood has a lot of great restaurants and other conveniences. The hosts were very sweet and left yummy snacks for us and also were so kind when my boyfriend became ill and our travel plans changed a bit. Definitely recommend this room to anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay!
George and Pat were wonderful. The room was big and beautiful. You have to share the bathroom and there's a private entrance for the tenants renting rooms. It was comfortable and close to the bus that takes you to the 7 train. I was busy most of the time I was here, but George and Pat leave you to your privacy and if you have questions they're more than happy to help. I definitely recommend them for your stay in New York.
George and Pat were great hosts.
I stayed in their house for a month and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room had a very private side entrance.
Other rooms in the house are also rented. So, you might have to share the bathroom or fridge with other guests. However, the big plus of this is that the common areas and bathroom are kept very, very clean.
There is a fridge and coffee machine to share and a different selection fruit, cookies and muffins for breakfast every day.
The house is about 10 minutes by bus or 15 minutes walk from Flushing main street, which is less than an hour from Manhattan. I was able to get to Bryant park in about 45 minutes door to door on weekdays around rush hour.
There are a few busses that stop near the house and a few restaurants, stores, etc.
Overall, my experience was great. I would not hesitate to stay with George and Pat again.
Our experience at George's home was superb although he was out of town with his family he was ever so accommodating Room 1 was very spacious the room had a/c and excellent furniture. My girlfriend and I slept soundlessly on the twin bed and the bathroom was immaculate. Fresh fruit and snacks greeted us each day along with a cup of coffee next to the fridge outside of our room, no noise from the other people staying in the home either. We will definitely come back to his part of town and his restaurant guide for the area was very helpful in finding some great local food (recommend the sunrise diner across the street from the q65 busstop into town) excellent host and amazing first experience!
