The space

Hello my name is Petya

I live in a 3 bedroom apartment in Astoria, Queens, with my very good friend Max from Germany and Bruna from Brazil. I am originally from Bulgaria and I speak English, Bulgarian, Russian, and a little bit of French. I am a very friendly positive person and I am also very open to foreign cultures, music, food, and customs. New York is a very unique city because people are from all around the world and contribute to the diversity of daily living.
As a professional figure skater I have participated in competitions through out most of Europe. As a child I traveled often with my family to France, Germany, Italy, California, Tunisia and Spain. In addition, I have traveled extensively to North America, Brazil and Tunisia. I love to engage in sports, yoga, tennis, skating, skiing, swimming, hiking, music, dancing and I love to cook. My father and my brother in law are professional chefs. I guess I inherited the passion from them to prepare delicious foods. I would love for you to experience my cuisine.
My apartment is located in a great neighborhood with restaurants, bars, international food, stores, libraries, parks, schools, shopping malls, and cinemas. Everything is nearby and convenient to public transportation which runs 24 hours a days. It is only 5-10min to NYC. Or if you need a taxi, they are abundantly available outside my apartment. I have a great room available with new furniture, AC, WiFi and Cable. I also can offer you occasional free skating classes with me at the local rink.
Welcome to my apartment. I know you are going to feel like you are home. I am waiting for you my new friend. Welcome to New York!
In addition to Astoria I also have locations out side of Queens in the Bronx. You may want to check out them on (website hidden) maps to see which is convenient for you.. Each location is located a block from the 2 &5 subway trains.


Kitchen, Wifi, Cable TV, TV, Shampoo, and 3 more

House Rules

Homestay Rules
It has become apparent that after hosting several homestay guests, we needed to establish some guidelines and expectations. By no means are we attempting to offend you, or be insensitive to different cultures or customs. However, having experienced some awkward situations, we don’t assume anything anymore. We want to continue to maintain high standards and make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Therefore, please understand the following requests:

Most Americans shower regularly, we expect the same from our guests.

All grooming, make-up, manicures, pedicures etc. need to be done in the bathroom only.

Personal body hair needs to be removed from the bathtub or shower after each use.

The bathtub, shower, sink, etc. need to be kept clean after each use.

Only toilet tissue can be flushed down the toilet. Anything else will clog and damage the plumbing.

Since we don’t lock any doors in the home, your bedroom needs to be clean and organized at all times. We are not a college dormitory.

Lights need to be turned off when not in use.

Front door outdoor lights need to be turned off when the last person arrives home.

Windows need to be kept closed when the air conditioner or heat is in use.

When eating independently of the family, your dishes need to be washed.

Food and drinks are not allowed in the bedroom.

Smoking is not allowed indoors.

No personal guests are allowed to visit without previous approval.

It is important that you do not answer the front door when no one else is home.

There is a $25 fee to replace the door lock if you should lose your door key.

We require either a $1000 refundable deposit or a valid passport to be held as a security deposit during your tenancy.

A $75 cleaning fee will be imposed if your room is left unclean prior to your departure.
