1 bedroom apartment in Sunnyside, Queens (address is Woodside but we are on the same block as Sunnyside post office...). It's about a 20-30 minute commute into the city. Safe, quiet block. Pre-war elevator building with laundry in the basement, Apartment is clean, spacious, gets tons of light and has an incredible view of the city. It is available Fri through Monday throughout the summer into the fall and a few week's here and there.
We are renting it on wkd's throughout the winter as well. Some wkd's we will be away and other wkd's we may be here in which you will share the common area with us. Please inquire about dates and I can let you know. If we share the apt we will charge a little less per night.
You will sleep on a pull out couch in the living room and have access to the giant foyer, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The couch is actually pretty comfy and spacious. We provide linens and towels and if you want to cook to save money we have a fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, spices etc that you may use. We have air conditioning, wifi, basic cable tv and Netflix. We also have small speakers you can plug your iphone into and will leave a laptop or desktop computer for you to use to surf the internet.
Apartment is a 7 minute walk to the 7 train which will take you right to Grand Central, Bryant Park, and Times Square. Also a 5 minute walk to the Bus that goes over the 59th St bridge right into the city, perfect for shopping at Bloomingdale's and Dylan's Candy Bar. :) If you are driving, we have a parking spot for you in the back of our building and if we are still here when you arrive, street parking is safe and easy. Apartment is very close to LaGuardia and JFK, so flying in and out makes for an easy and affordable commute to airports.
There are several deli's and grocery stores all within a few blocks from the apartment. There are some great restaurants closeby as well (one of the BEST Thai restaurants in the area is in Woodside). If you are an exercise buff I have a light weights and bands, a mat and dvd's if you would like to get a work out in. It is also easy to go for a run in the neighborhood. This apartment is best for a single person or a couple visiting the city on a budget looking for a safe, clean and quiet oasis with quick and easy access into Manhattan.
I am a previous Airbnb host with tons of experience and knowledge of the city. I am responsible and will do my best to make sure you are taken care of. My boyfriend has lived in this neighborhood for 13 years so he knows a lot about Sunnyside. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and give suggestions on where to eat out and how to best spend your time in NYC. I hope you will consider staying at our lovely home and enjoy it as much as we do.
We prefer that you arrive in the late afternoon/evening but if you are arriving early or at an odd hour we can do our best to have a friend meet you with the keys or even mail them to you. Let me know what your travel plans are and we will try to accommodate as best we can.
Please no pets or smoking. NO drugs, parties or loud music/voices. Please be considerate of neighbors.
Lovely! The location, ease of access and apartment itself are a dynamite combination. I highly recommend this spot to other travelers, provided they are entirely mobile as scaling 5 floors was easy for us but might prove difficult for anyone with a physical impairment.
The couch is VERY comfy, the apartment is very spacious and the view is wonderful. The shower set up is cute and ergonomic in a roomy bathroom.
The subway is a quick jaunt through streets lined with spots to eat cheaply and well.
We had a great few days!
I had a really great stay at this apartment. I received a really detailed set of instructions about the apartment, how to get there, wifi, etc. The place was big and clean. I went during the winter where it was freezing outside, but the apartment (and the water) was always warm, it was fantastic. Also Nancy was communicative and very quick to respond! Everything went smoothly and I'd highly recommend staying here!
Everything went well, our arrival was perfectly organized, communication with Nancy was always easy and quick, the apartment cozy and clean. Full recommendation and thanks to both of you :)
Before we met, Nancy provide us with everything we need prior to our arrival, gave us very good instructions about the house and where to find what we needed for our stay. The apartment was clean and just as described, the bed is very comfortable for two people and the best thing is the location. Couple blocks from the train station, with lots of easy parking around the building.
About Nancy.. She is awesome! Very warm and nice attitude and provide responses to our questions quickly. This was Definitely a great experience for us !
We spent the weekend at Nancy's place for a wedding in Long Island City, Queens. She wasn't home but left us specific and accurate directions on how to get in and out of her place. We really enjoyed our stay and the apartment was exactly as advertised - couch was comfortable and firm and she supplied us with everything we needed to feel right at home. Great Experience! Thank you Nancy.
It was a nice area and great apartment ! We didn't get to meet Nancy but had great communication with her for getting the keys and details of the space and neighborhood. The bed was a little short for BJ, she's 5'10". All in all it was a very nice stay.
Everything as described. Beautiful apartment. Lot of space. Nancy always answered very quickly. Really can recommend the place. Also location is very good. Thanks Nancy!
