Staying at Camilla's place was just what I was looking for - a place to stay before an early a.m. flight. Camilla greeted me when I arrived & showed me around. The place was clean, spacious (for New York), and the other guest that night was respectful/quiet. The only slight drawback was the backyard music coming from the neighbors - but a window fan drowned that out. Would stay again if I needed a place near JFK!
Simple but comfortable room. The metro service after 11pm is limited so it took me longer to get here than I expected but it was very quick returning to JFK in the morning. Internet was good, there was filtered water in the kitchen, and the shower was hot. The walls are thin so you can hear other guests. This could be a problem if you're a light sleeper. I'd stay here again for a short layover.
I enjoyed my stay at Camilla and family very much. The location is very accessible and her home is very nice with my room being as described. I look forward to hopefully staying here again in the future.
The stay with Camilla was very well organized. I had an overnight stay from flights to and from JFK, and Camilla's apartment is easily reachable - just one stop with the E-train from Jamaica station. Big plus if you travel with some luggage: the subway station has escalators (and I think even an elevator, didn't use it).
The communication for my arrival with Camilla was easy, and she was kind enough to help me get some of my luggage up to the first floor - and also ok with me being so tired from travel, that we didn't have a long chat, which I'm sure would have been fun.
The room is clean and quiet with a comfy bed, the room is not large, but absolutely ok for one person staying there. The bathroom (shared) was clean.
I think it was a perfect solution for my night close to JFK and can recommend staying with Camilla.
The place was super clean and had supplies for coffee (important!) and a continental breakfast. There were also supplies to make waffles. The bedroom had a heater, free wifi and cable television. The common area had a beautiful dining room and a sectional leather couch that could have been an air bnb place all on it's own. There is also a washer and dryer that you can use for free.
