We stayed at Biren's place for four nights in December. It was our first experience with AirBnB and we would definitly recommend staying at Gita's and Biren's place to friends and familiy. We liked NY very much and are planning to come back to visit in a few months again - probably in summer time. Then we will definitily get in touch with Biren again for a place to stay.
Even before arriving at Queens/ NY Biren always responded to our e-mails very quickly and answered all our questions (and we had a lot :), because we were new on AirBnB).
Besides Biren we also had the honor of meeting his mother Gita. Both of them were so nice to us and treated us really excellent. We felt welcome even before entering the place. Biren already welcomed us outside where he was waiting for us to arrive.
Throughout our stay Gita and Biren have also been there for us, if we had any questions or needed andything.
Furthermore they provided to us a metro map where they already marked places to see in NY starting from the typicall tourist spots (e.g. Times Square) up to some insights (e.g. best view of Manhattan from Brooklyn or place to go shopping).
The place itself looks execatly like shown on the pictures. It is very new and stylish. Furthermore Gita and Biren also keep it very clean so we really felt comfortable.
The appartment is located near the metro Jackson Heights (walking distance 5 - 10 min). Several metro trains leave from there so it is very easy to go to Manhattan or the airport(s) at any time.
The neighborhood itself (Jackson Heights in Queens) is an upcoming and growing neighborhood. It is safe, also at night we never felt unsecure walking home from the metro.
Furthermore near to Biren's place there are several restaurants located where you can get breakfast or lunch/ dinner for reasonable prices compared to downtown Manhattan. We enjoyed also exploring Queens, mainly for breakfast and dinner, because you will find cuisine from all over the world there (e.g. Italian, Thai, Indian...).
Staying at Biren's place made our first time in New York a great experience. The house was very clean, and my wife loved house. Biren and his mother were very welcoming, and he provided us with a detailed map where he noted all the main places we could visit. He even provided us with two subway tickets so that we didn't have to spend an extra dollar purchasing a new ticket. The place is very close to a major subway station, so you can pretty much go anywhere without walking too much.
When I just made the reservation for this place, I picked the wrong dates. I made the reservation kind of last minute, so the policy said I couldn't get a refund. But Biren offered to talk to customer service for me. I thought that was very considerable of him. In the end, though, I decided to stick with my reservation and I'm really glad I did!
If you are visiting New York and you are concern about staying in a affordable and nice place, I suggest you to go to Biren's, he is a very nice guy and very welcoming. His place is very nice and neat, just as in the pictures and very comfortable. The neighborhood is nice and safe with just a few blocks away from a metro station.
Biren also supplies you with a very detailed map about places to visit and also with a list of things to do according to the season so if is your first time visiting New York this is very useful to get the best of the big apple. We had a great time and for sure we will go back to Biren's for our next visit to New York.
La prima settimana di Dicembre sono stato con mia moglie nella splendida ed illuminata NY, ospite di Biren e di sua madre Gitta. Si, ospite è la parola giusta, perché fin da subito ci siamo sentiti accolti calorosamente come fossimo a casa nostra. Biren e Gitta sono stati splendidi con noi. Biren ci ha illustrato nel dettaglio ogni aspetto legato ai nostri spostamenti ad ai mezzi di trasporto più utili per raggiungere Manhattan; ci ha indicato i migliori locali dove fare ricche colazione la mattina ed ottimi ristoranti della zona di Jackson Hights. L’appartamento è incantevole, invaso da un’aurea di pace e di rispettoso silenzio. L’arredamento essenziale ed elegante ha uno stile molto raffinato nel design. La nostra camera era luminosa, calda ed accogliente, perfetta per quando tornavamo stanchissimi dopo le nostre visite quotidiane ad i luoghi più belli di New York. Che bello al mattino, al nostro risveglio fare due parole con Gitta nella sua deliziosa cucina, prima di una nuova scoperta nella Grande Mela.
Grazie di tutto,
Gabriele e Benedetta
Biren's place is really amazing. I was overwhelmed by the great sense of hospitality and generosity of him and his mother. Upon arrival he provided me with a map of NY and on a pouring day they (unsolicitated) carried me out an umbrella and some keepsakes the day i left.
The spot is exactly how it's described. It's clean, quiet and everything a guest needs is considered. It almost resembles a hotel.
The spot looks somewhat remote on the map (from a Manhattan view) but has some express subway services bringing you in approx 15- 20 minutes on spot.
Great value and absolutely worth the stay.
LOVED staying at Biren's place! Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to meet Biren but his brother MJ and mother Gitta were so lovely and accommodating- I felt at home here. The room was more than enough for me- so clean and just like the photos! The entire house was immaculate. MJ was great- he had provided me with all the great restaurants and sites to see- his notes and map were invaluable for me for the entire trip! Gitta was so lovely- she looked after me and really made me feel at home. The location was great too- the trains only a 10min walk away and there were plenty of restaurants around! It was my first time in NYC and I loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for letting me stay at your place- I can definitely see why its a five star place! Will definitely be back!

I am the owner of the home with my family, I have a spare bedroom that can be rented on a daily and weekend basis, the house is very well maintained as we have a keen eye for art, architecture, design and all things real estate. I hold a Masters in Real Estate Investment and Development and am a Licensed Real Estate associate and member of REBNY (Real Estate Board of NY).
We keep the house very clean and nothing is damaged, we update the décor frequently to enjoy new styles and comfortable amenities. We are very open minded and social family, open to anyone looking to share our place and respect our privacy and the house itself so that you can enjoy it as well :)
We are well travelled, multi lingual and above all exceptional hosts.
