Looking for an affordable place to stay in NYC? I have the perfect suite in the lower level of my home in Flushing, Queens, NYC.
The space has its own entrance and bathroom so you have privacy but we are right upstairs if you need anything.
The suite is located in the basement and you will be able to walk up and down about 5 steps to enter.
The full-size futon (400 lb limit) and twin-size chaise (250 lb limit) fold down to accommodate three guests. There is also a footstool that folds out to a bed for one (250 lb limit).
2 closets, micro fridge, kitchen sink and storage and microwave (For safety reasons, there is no stove/oven).
The small private bathroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. Towels and toiletries are in the cabinet above the toilet.
Patio and garden
Television and game system
I live in the same house, so I am available most evenings and weekends. When I am at work during the day, you can always by cell, e-mail or the airbnb site.
I follow your lead: if you are just looking for a place to stay and you want to be left alone, I will oblige. If you need help or have questions, please ask! If you want to chat, I am always happy to take the time to find out who you are and where you are from.
I'm a native English speaker with passable German skills and reading knowledge of French and Spanish.
Flushing is a safe NYC residential neighborhood, with much opportunity for ethnic eats and shopping, including Chinese, Korean, Indian, Afghani, Thai, Malayasian, Italian, Greek, and of course, pizza!
Flushing is known as the birthplace of religious freedom in the U.S., and you can practice your faith or take in the services of Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Catholic, various Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, LDS (Mormon), and Jehovah's Witness, and more, all within walking distance.
We are located by a beautiful city park with tennis, basketball, and handball courts, a golf course, hiking trails, and NYC's only velodrome for biking. The park connects with the Greenbelt to take you all over the city on bicycle.
If you love tennis, we are a leisurely walk (35 min) to the U.S. Tennis Open in August-September as well as boat rentals, and the site of the Dragonboat Festival in August. It is also the same park that serves as home to the New York Mets. The Hall of Science, Queens Museum, and Queens Theater are also located in this park.
If you love jazz, you are steps away from Louis Armstrong's grave and within 3 miles/6 km of his home and archives.
Are you looking to visit your children who have moved to the "big city" but have no room for you in their tiny Manhattan apartment? My home is the perfect place to stay comfortably, with plenty of parking. It's also a great location for college visits to St. John's University, Queens College, Hofstra University, and Adelphi University.
Explore all NYC has to offer with a 30-minute subway ride to Grand Central & Times Square on the #7 train (purple line). A 15/20-minute walk or 6/12-minute bus ride (1 mi/1.6km) will take you to the subway (metro), Main Street station, or 20-minute LIRR ride to Penn Station, and then explore the rest of the city.
*Book for one week's stay and a free unlimited weekly Metrocard for use on NYC subways and buses is included for up to two guests.
If you have a car, I have a driveway you can use and street parking without restrictions--both real luxuries in NYC!
Fire extinguisher is under the sink.
The smoke/carbon monoxide detector is on the ceiling by the stairs.
Exits are the front dooras well as up the stairs and out the front or back door.
I absolutely LOVED being a guest in Christina's home. It was a warm and cozy place, fully equipped with everything I needed plus more. Christina was very friendly and flexible with check in/check out times. I truly appreciated the little details she put into making our stay easy. I was able to get around with ease thanks to the directions listed in a binder she left in the kitchen area, along with the directions and things to do in queens throughout the place. I would recommend Christina's place to friends and family.
It was a perfect stay ! Christina was very nice and helpful. She proposed to pick us up in the airport or in the subway. There is a lot of information for visiting New York in his house, and Christina is very responsive to the messages. The flat is in the basement of the house, but he is very clean and have all the equipment and furniture you'll need. (microwave, fridge, big TV with Wii and DVD if the weather is bad !)
We had been there just for 2 days and the only bad point for us was the time spent in the subway to reach Manhattan ; but Flushing is very safe and interesting to see !
Our stay was wonderful. We came in with a lot of luggage, a small child, baby, and dog...and found everything to be very accommodating. The complementary tea, coffee, and breakfast were a lifesaver. We would stay again :-)
Christina is wonderful. She picked us at the airport, she gave us a lot of informations and advices.
The appartement is good and have all we need.
Bus and metro are near the apartment and it's very easy to go to airport (or come from airport ;)).
A very good place to visit NYC!!
You can book without hesitation (I'll do it if I come back at NYC).
What a wonderful stay I had! The neighborhood, the house, the city, and the amenities were all great! Oh, and Christina was a excellent hosts. I would definitely stay again! :-)
First off, Christina left ample amount of information about the place that was really helpful beforehand.
The only thing that I missed (mostly user error) was which door led to the room I'd be staying at. But Christina was very responsive through the Air BnB app/text messages/etc.
The place was fairly well kept and had all the amenities I needed for an overnight stay. It was a little cold at one point, even after I turned on the heat, but when I asked Christina for help with the heater settings she kindly took care of it.
In sum, Christina was very welcoming and responded in a timely manner to all my questions/requests.
We really enjoyed our stay at Christina's place.
Christina is a very welcoming host. She provided us a breakfast which we found in the fridge when we arrived. There were more than enough towels and blankets and the studio was clean.
We felt very safe in the studio as well as in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is very quiet and clean and has a frequent access by bus to the metro station which connects directly with Manhattan.
Thank you for all, Christina!
Christina was a fabulous host! She went out of her way to pick my daughter and I up at the airport and dropped us off the day we left. She also provided lots of snacks, towels and blankets (more than we needed)!
The apartment is just as described. It is much larger than a regular NYC hotel room. The heating worked well and there are many locks on the doors, although the area appears to be very safe.
Christina went out of her way to provide explicit directions on how to get places and even picked us up after we lost our way through the neighborhood.
The train ride to Manhattan does take about 45 minutes, but I believe the express train service was interpreted due to construction. When we are able to return to NYC, I will be booking the room at Christina's place again!
The place is so nice and clean, convenient too. We really enjoyed our stay. Christina is a great host and she even offered to pick us up on a Saturday at the airport which saved a lot of time for us. She gave me a lot of useful suggestions for our nyc trip and wrote messages to help us with planning. We also enjoyed the food she provided. All is all, our experience is amazing. highly recommend.
christine is a very friendly landlady. If you need a support on your trip, christina will help you.
the area is in very calm, with bus and metro you need approx. 45 min to downtown NY. but with the public traffic is this possible around the clock.
If i will come back to NY in this case i will ask Christine for the flat again
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
