Cynthia and Mirlet were great, very warm and welcoming. The place was very clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. You can't beat the location - just around the corner to the subway, very close to Manhattan in an area with tons of great bars & restaurants. I felt safe and cozy :) I would definitely recommend this location for anyone traveling to NYC.
I stayed with Cynthia & Mirlet for another 3 weeks on my next trip in NYC. Was that excessive? Probably. Were they once again welcoming, warm, and chill? Fasho. Stay here, you won't regret it.
For my first airnbnb experience, Cynthia & Mirlet have set pretty high standards! Although we didn't see much of them over our 3 day stay in New Yorks, we were made to feel very much at home in their lovely apartment, which is as clean and lovely as the photos imply. The neighbourhood is great, with food and bars nearby, as well as the Museum of Moving Image and the Kaufman Astoria Studios. They're also just a minute from an N & Q subway station, taking about 15 minutes into the heart of Manhattan. A perfect location for a trip to New York City.
Cynthia &Mirlet are very nice, friendly hosts. And good adviser for enjoying NYC.
The location is perfect for access to the city center, because it takes 1min to Q line station and 20min to manhattan by train. Also, This room is so cute & comfortable to stay.
So, I enjoyed so much NYC, and I'm so happy stay there and meet them :)
Cynthia and Mirlet were absolutely amazing hosts. Their home was was clean and comfortable. They made us feel right at home from the day we got there. They provided us with a ton of fun ideas on what to do during the day and at night. We would stay with them again without a doubt!
I had a wonderful time at Cynthia and Mirlets. The apartment and room are just as in the picture and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the garden very cute.
Both of the host are super accommodating! Highly recommend!
Cynthia and Mirlet are wounderful couple and very lovely hosts. I had great time staying in their accommodation because it is very cousy and i felt like being at home.
We are an outgoing young married couple. We are fun, kind, and very used to receiving guests at our large apartment in Astoria/LIC. Cynthia is an anthropologist/voice over artist and Mirlet is a fashion designer. We both work in Manhattan. We also have a wonderful roomate who we like to call "our daughter" Mariana. She is a full-time art design student. We are normally home from 9pm to 9am, as we all have crazy busy schedules. Our house has two floors, one floor is where our bedrooms and family room are located, and the ground floor is where the private room is, together with the kitchen and a bathroom that we all share. This is a perfect room if you want to stay in a nice friendly place, close to Manhattan. We live right in front of the train station (36th ave stop by N or Q in Queens), super convenient location, with lots of sun light! The room has access to our backyard, where you can smoke and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the sun. We love to meet new people, to chat, to travel, and overall, to host. We love art, dance, music, and all sports! We also speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, Creolle, and a little bit of French. We prefer young travelers but family/couple is okay as well. No kids please - our house has stairs and is not kids friendly. If you need extra space (meaning if you don't want to share the futon with your friend!) we can put a mattress on the floor upon request. Maximum 2 guests. We will do our best to make sure your stay in NYC will be as wonderful as possible! Sheets, towels, teas, and coffee included :)
