The Space

Welcome to The Dutch Kills Carriage House!!!

A wonderful, newly listed home on Airbnb! This spacious, two-story colonial house is incredibly special. The house has a European open layout optimized for comfort, with large windows, lots of sunlight, and a cathedral-style ceiling. The whole ground floor has a large 20 x 35 open living room and kitchen with a floating wooden staircase leading to the second floor 4 bedroom suite. These include two Queen beds and 2 double beds, each with luxury bedding, and extra beds are available upon request. The kitchen is large, fully equipped and is extremely functional with a modern design. The accompanying dining room has a large maple wood table with seating for 10, and a sliding glass door that leads directly out to the private garden where you can sit and sip on your freshly brewed coffee in the morning. (Complimentary organic tea and coffee is provided!) There is also an outside grill available for your convenience. The house has one and a half bathrooms, one on each floor, and comes with a modern washer/dryer, which can come handy if you are traveling with the whole family. A cot and crib/playpen is also available. Includes wireless high speed internet and Apple TV.

Many gracious thanks for considering this home,

Steffan Olausson Partridge

Is the area safe? How far is it from Manhattan?

The neighborhood Dutch Kills is very safe, only 3 blocks from the N and Q subway station, which is 2 stops from Lexington Ave in midtown Manhattan. Queens and Queensborough Plaza stations (which provide the N, Q, 7, E, M, and R trains) are also a 5 minute walk away. Or if you'd rather drive, walk or bike, the 59th Street bridge is just a few short blocks away.

Is there any parking?

There is one dedicated spot right in front of the house exclusively for our guests. There is also plenty of other overnight parking, you can choose a meter right in front of the house where you pay $.25 per 15 min between Mon-Sat 9am-7pm, or just half a block away you can find free 24/7 parking with street cleaning rules on Thursday and Friday between 8.30-10am.

There is also a parking garage right across the street where you can park for $10 per day.

How do we get there from JFK airport?

Its very easy to get here from JFK, just take the Airtrain to Jamaica station, switch to the E train, take that to Queens Plaza and walk 3 blocks north following 29th Street to the corner of 39th Ave.

Do you accept credit cards?

Airbnb takes care of the whole reservation process and they accept all major credit cards.

How is the neighborhood around the apartment?

This area is called Dutch Kills, a small neighborhood right in between Astoria and Long Island City, two very popular destinations for cafes and restaurants. So the house is within walking distance (as short as 5 minutes) to local restaurants and bars. We also have 3 very famous galleries within walking distance, Fisher Landau Center for Art, Flux Factory and PS1, which is part of the Modern Museum of Art (MoMa). Since this area is so close to Queensboro Bridge, the main transportation hub of Queens, this has traditionally been a place for back businesses supplying Manhattan with bread, truffles, silk, etc. But over the last 10 years, artists have taken over these warehouse spaces and made them into work/live loft studios. It’s a very interesting area and I think you will be very pleased.

Interaction with Guests

We are very easy going and we leave the interaction up to you. We like to make ourselves available but we have found that most New York visitors have very specific interests and reasons for coming to the greatest city in the world and we want to give you the freedom to explore and make this city your own.

  • The house was great and had a lot of space. It was close to the subway and it was easy to get to around. There was a parking space in the back. On the day we were leaving it was blocked. Steffan was able to help with the situation and it was sorted quickly.

  • Très grande maison très bien située : tout proche du métro et à environ 15 min de métro de Manhattan donc très pratique! Confortable mais une seule salle de bain, un peu juste pour 8 personnes, par contre grand sejour avec grande table. Nous n'avons pas vu Steffan mais dispo au téléphone si besoin.
    Je recommande ce logement pour les groupes (famille ou ami), bon rapport qualité prix.

  • Maison très spacieuse et quartier agréable. A deux pas du métro et 3 stations de Central Park. Nous étions 9 et chacun avait suffisamment d'espace. La météo n'ayant pas été très clémente la température dans la maison était un peu faible.
    Nous avons eu un petit problème avec la douche mais le propriétaire a tout de suite pris les choses en main et le soir, à notre retour tout était réglé. En bref, nous recommanderions sans problème ce logement très bien situé. 2change avec Steffan toujours très agréables.

  • La maison de Steffan et Jeniffer est très agréable et très bien située. Les photos correspondent bien à ce que nous avons trouvé. Le lit pour enfant et la barrière protégeant de l'escalier ont été appréciés, nous qui voyagions avec nos enfants et petit-enfant (Une chaise haute aurait été la bienvenue).
    Le métro est à 200 m au bout le la 39th rue et nous étions en 2 stations (10 minutes) de l'angle de Central Park et de la 5th Avenue.
    Le quartier est est très calme, ayant de nombreux commerces de proximité dans un environnement simple mais sécure, au coeur du Queens en pleine mutation.
    Idéal pour un séjour à New York.

  • A house this large with such a big kitchen and cute yard is a unique find in NYC. The kitchen was our main focus and it was really great! We'd definitely use the space again.

  • Wow! What can I say about this Place! It was perfect! Great location! 10 minutes from LGA! Subway station was just a few blocks down, great for us, since we spent most of our time in Manhattan. The place was clean and fully stocked. Plenty of beds air mattress for us to sleep together or separate! I would definitely book this place again for a big group! And last but not least, Steffan was a pleasure to work with! We are all happy with our stay! Home away from home!

  • Nice cosy and big enough was this apartment for seven persons. Quite quiet neighbourhood, thoug some sounds from the street and subway. Station in 200 meters and then only couple stopovers and you are in Lexinton av.
    The apartment was a bit chilly but the reason was the weather. We had somewhat warm upstairs and chilly downstairs. We are from Finland so we are used to winter. So we managed of course , did not feel too cold and liked a lot about the apartment. Thanks a lot!

  • Although I am from NYC, I was staying with a group of friends from all over the East Coast for an annual event this past weekend. Steffan was a gracious host and really accommodated our arrival time/date. The house was open, airy, and very clean. Our whole group had an incredible time and we will definitely consider staying at one of Steffan's properties for the event next year - if not the same one. We especially appreciated the Master Lock on the door that had a key inside of it, so we did not all have to come back at the same time. Beautiful home for a great price - also super close to Manhattan.

    Thank you again, Steffan!

  • Together with colleagues we had a great stay in the house. It is very much like the pictures. Spacious, clean and well equipped. The amazing Dutch Kills Restaurant and Bar is just a few meters away and the house is within walking distance to MoMA PS1 and there are great metro communications to the city all around. Beds were comfortable and big and even air mattresses were spacious. Over all, a very good experience that I can recommend to anyone and especially for larger companies.

  • I have so many fabulous things to say about Steffan and about this house but let me give my short review in case you don't have time to read the full review …If you ever have the chance to stay in one of Steffan's properties, do it and have no hesitation at all about it. He's a gem! Pure and simple! Sweet, kind, accommodating, generous! And the house we stayed in was gorgeous - clean, modern, spacious, safe, convenient - everything we could have hoped for!

    Now for the details if you'd like more info...My performance troupe of 8 stayed for 3 weeks in Steffan's beautiful house in Queens and we had a fabulous time! Steffan is such a wonderful man and a gracious host! He provided us with everything we needed, including many air mattresses because our group is not made up of many couples - he ran right out to the store and got them for us the first night.

    The house itself was super convenient to the theater where we were performing in Manhattan - only 2 subway stops and a couple of blocks of walking. Also, there's a wonderful restaurant right across the street from the house - it's called Dutch Kills Centraal and it became our local hang-out. The open plan of the first floor of the house was just right for such a large group and the huge kitchen was perfect for cooking Christmas dinner…which we did do! The upstairs had plenty of space for all 8 of us and the house itself was large enough so that while some of us liked to stay up late downstairs the rest of us could rest upstairs. Really the perfect place for us!

    But even more than the space we all just adore Steffan! He made us feel so at home and was calling us "Neighbor" by the time we left. He even brought a gaggle of his friends to our show! I can't say enough about Steffan or this house. If I could give 10 stars instead of 5, I would! In Steffan, we found not only a fantastic host but a new friend!

I was born on the Island of Cyprus in the same bed as my mother was born but it was too hot for my Swedish Dad so we moved to his home land when I was 6 months old. They bought a small farm in the northern woods of Wermland and from very simple ingredients they made five more kids at home but life in organic paradise ended when I was 12 when my Mom missed her big Greek-Cypriot family in Astoria NY and took all 6 of us to the Big Apple. So life has shaped me into a innocent street smart romantic that believed in the inherent good of all people. I still have the house in Wermland and Im in the process of building a house in Bahia, Brazil with my soon to be Bride. We have 4 boys between 13 and 6 and my big girl just turned 25. I adore my little Dutch Kills community where I have partnered up with the neighbors to open a day spa, art gallery, gastropub, and a community garden. We reward ourselves with travel and opening up our home to other adventurous explorers around this fabulous world. Warm Welcomes, Steffan Olausson Partridge
