Our apartment is located in a prewar co-op on a main avenue in Astoria and we have many wonderful restaurants, supermarket, a 24 hour pharmacy, Dry Cleaner, Laundromat, Post Office, and Subway Station, etc. all within a 2 block radius. Astoria has quickly become one of NYC's most desired neighborhoods due to its diversity, cuisine, saftey, and close proximity to Manhattan.
We are a laid back professional couple that love introducing people to our neighborhood. My husband is an architect and I own an online boutique. When we aren't working we like seeing movies, exploring the city, eating to our hearts content and physical fitness to burn it all off. Our dog Hey Zeus is an old man in a little body. He is friendly and he will give you as little or as much attention as you give him. He is hypoallergenic for those who are allergry sufferers.

**Please, if you have questions, do not hesitate to ask. We also ask that you send an inquiry email before making bookings just to confirm that your dates are available. Also, we are less inclined to accept guests who do not have a profile with current photo.
Guests are free to use the kitchen and all the equipment as long as everything is cleaned and put away. The bathroom is also shared and there are some basic toiletries available such as soap, q-tips, lotion. The office is off limits.
I am working from my office most days so I will be around if guests need anything. I try to stay out of our guests way but I am available in case anyone needs help finding anything. My husband works long hours in Manhattan so is not present as much.
I love the food in my neighborhood! There is no shortage of variety here. I also love how tranquil it is, especially after spending a hectic day in in the city.
Street parking is pretty easy and there is a parking lot across the street for hourly parking. The subway station is located right around the corner and there is a bus stop just in front of our building.

Realmente fue una experiencia maravillosa, Con mi señora viajamos ne diciembre del 2013, para pasar año nuevo en New York. Diana durante nuestra estadía de 15 días, estuvo pendiente de nosotros nos recomendó sitios a visitar, restaurantes, etc.
El apartamento esta muy cerca de la estación del metro, por lo cual el transporte no tiene problema.
Recomiendo a todos la estadía en este lugar y volvería a alojarme alli.
Me parece económico por su ubicación, cerca de Manhatan.
Diana's place was great! So cozy and conveniently located close to the subway and some other cool stores and restaurants. We had a great time and the room really is comfy it was so hard for use to wake up early. I absolutely loved their dog Hey Zeus so cute and friendly. Diana and her husband were very friendly and accommodating as well I'd definitely stay here again and recommend her place!
Diana and Andre were lovely hosts. Nice bedroom in a great location. Close to many restaurants and stores. Short distance to the subway. Enjoyed my stay in Astoria!
Diana and Andre are exceptional hosts who were very welcoming and accommodating during our stay in NYC. Although we didn't get to spend much time with them both (as it was Thanksgiving and they went away) they ensured that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including additional blankets, maps and directions, fresh towels and full use of amenities.
Diana and Andre were very trustworthy, professional and easy going opening up their beautiful home for us to use - Hey-Zeus is also the coolest dog ever and we took a shining to MOFO the turtle!
The location of the apartment is ideal with the subway just a 2 minute walk around the corner and a delicious restaurant called MP’s right across the road. We had a wonderful holiday and can recommend Diana and Andre’s place to anyone. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous home with us.
Diana y André fueron excelentes anfitriones de NYC. El apartamento está muy bien ubicado, es muy limpio y agradable.
La habitación muy cómoda al igual que el baño.
Diana siempre fue muy amable con las indicaciones, sugerencias, restaurantes recomendados (nunca olvidaré que comí canguro y el excelente restaurante griego)

Diana and Andrew are super great hosts! Andrew has a good sense of humor while Diana has a really good taste of interior design! Their bed is so comfortable that you fall asleep once you lie on They also give you enough personal space:) we are provided to have the whole apartment when they went out to visit their friend. plus, we love their dog! So out-going! My friend and I enjoyed a lot. Highly recommend to everyone! We w Definitely come back if available next time!
During our eight-day visit of New York we could not have imagined better hosts than Diana and André. They opened up their appartement as if it was our own home. It was nice to talk to them about life in NY and how we could best experience it.The room was cosy, enough space to sort out all our stuff, very clean and there were fresh towels on the bed. We used their kitchen a couple of times to cook our own meal and all appliances were there, they even foresaw a shelf in the refrigerator for us. Astoria is a safe neighboorhood with some nice restaurants, bars and markets nearby. It was only a 3 minute walk to the metro which brings you to Manhattan (Central park) in 15-20 minutes. An ideal location to explore Manhattan and the other boroughs. Last but not least we also want to thank the third host: their little white dog Jézus, always welcoming us with warmth after a long day of exploring New York.
We are definitely going back and we hope to someday welcome them in Belgium.

Diana was a wonderful host. Very professional and personable and so was Andre her husband. They were very warm and hospitable. They helped me with any need that I had, like: how to get to certain places, access to computer.
The place was clean at all times. Centrally located to all the hot spots in Manhattan.
If I go again to NY, I will definitely will stay with them.
Thank you Diana and Andre.......
To make it short, it was just perfect!
My sister and I had a wonderful stay in Astoria-Diana and Andre are great hosts! Although we were out on adventures around the city most of the time, we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and it was nice to be able to chat with them when our paths crossed. The apartment is located just a few minutes walk from the subway which was awesome! The neighborhood is very safe and includes a large Greek population-you'll have your choice of many good restaurants! :-) Thanks again!
