Here is your chance to live in a real NYC neighborhood. Astoria, especially on Steinway street is very ethnic and diverse, and most importantly convenient. No need for a car, with the subway, buses, taxis throughout the neighborhood day or night. There is great nightlife (bars & restaurants) on 30th avenue, Broadway, Ditmars and Steinway street. The best Greek and Middle Eastern restaurants and the beautiful Astoria Park are close by. At the park there's a must see sunset overlooking Manhattan & the East River. 24/7 conveniences and very SAFE! Short walk to Metro, access to the entire city. Come sit at an Astoria cafe and watch the people go by while sipping your greek frappe!

It was a great stay in a very clean and comfortable apartament. Francis was a good host who always asked if there would be anything I need.
The Connection to Downtown/Manhattan lasts about 18 Minutes. A bus stop is in front of the house. Many shops for all belongings on the Street.
I would prefer this home for another stay.
Francis was a good host. the Neighborhood was fine. parking was a little bit of a challenge but to be expected in NY. all in all a good experience.
My experience staying with Francis and Brit was lovely. Everything you could possibly need was provided in the apartment, I even found nail polish remover that came in pretty handle. My only concern was finding parking, and that took no longer than 2 minutes. Everything you need is walking distance: liquor stores, groceries stores, restaurants, bars and karaoke right down stairs (which I barely heard over my boyfriend watching the all-star basketball stuff. Overall it was more than I expected for my first airbnb experience.
A beautifully amazing place to stay, lots of privacy and good vibes in this apt! Highly recommended! Take care because the music from the bar downstairs is fairly present on Friday nights- but nothing some earplugs couldn't fix. Enjoy!
I had the opportunity for a long stay (30 days) at ZEN PLANT hosted by Francis in Queens. I would describe Francis as a host as very hang loose and very accommodating and I do thank him for making my stay possible and pleasant. I felt very much at home in the Astoria neighborhood - quick access to lots of shops and safe walking back and forth even at night. The place had plenty of sunshine and plenty of room for other family members visiting over the holidays. Subway ride into NYC only takes 30 minutes. Airport just short and cheap taxi ride away. Staying at ZEN Plant in Astoria is a great way to afford New York. You do have to plan around loud music for a short block of time Fri and Sat nites from club below but other than that I didn't even know club was there. I look forward to a return visit one day!!!
Francis is an excellent host and the apartment had everything we needed. Very comfortable and pleasant stay!
I'm an easy going local NYC guy. I live here in Astoria with my girlfriend Brit. Travel addict, I've been to over 20 different countries so far many in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and south east Asia. English and Spanish are my two strongest languages. Brit has lived and studied abroad in Europe, she speaks English and French. I have worked in hospitality for over 11 years and know the importance of cleanliness and friendliness!
Traveling to beautiful beaches is our favorite, I also love nature hikes, kayaking and fishing.
We own a dog and a cat very sweet best friends. Suga and Maka, they don't live in the zen oasis in case you're allergic.
We love to travel & meet internationals!
