About this listing
Spacious bedroom with queen size memory foam bed fit for 2 in our charming "old NY" apartment with fantastic views. Super convenient location to 4 trains (all 1 block-2 blocks away). One stop away from Manhattan and right next to trendy Brooklyn!
For those who appreciate real New York old world charm, this apt is located in a very convenient area of Long Island City only 1 stop away from Manhattan. Located on a corner across a park with tons of sunlight drenching the apartment, we have 4 subways all within a short 2 block radius from us. The 7 train right on our block, E and M which is only 1 stop away from Manhattan, G if you want to travel to Greenpoint or Williamsburg or other parts of Brooklyn. Supermarket, diner, deli, restaurants all nearby and the beautiful LIC waterfront only a short walking distance away. Our neighbor MoMA PS1 is across the way from us, you can see and hear all the great events they throw during the summers. Also has a new amazing cafeteria style restaurant inside called Dinette, great for nice lunches.
We are a couple, subletting our biggest room of 3. Our apartment is warm, comfortable and spacious with a lot of character. Best of all, has big windows to an amazing view of the city skyline without having to stay in a boring "cookie cutter" new built apartment or a chain hotel. The living room is large with exposed brick, old mismatched furniture, tons of books and a small fish aquarium, and a small pet snake in a safe tank.
Kitchen is also great and spacious, really nice to cook in and with a new dishwasher. Bathroom is very basic but has a big old claw foot tub with shower.
This apartment has a few creaks and cracks but overall its clean, big and comfortable.
Our bedroom is just simple and clean, big enough for 2. This is the only bedroom that has a window to the skyline view. Besides a door, there are also big wooden sliding doors that open up to living room if you want to feel more open. The whole wall is exposed brick, just has a queen sized bed (with brand new memory foam mattress), an old dresser and armoire. We will provide clean bedding and towels.
We do want to advise that this is a 5 floor walk up but very worth it, and we enforce a no shoe policy please.
This neighborhood is a great mix of young adults, singles, families, it has a good blend of all. Its embodies true NY without it being an obnoxious scene. You can be tucked away from the fast city but its super close. The area is very convenient to get to wherever you want. Theres also really great restaurants really nearby and a beautiful waterfront blocks away.
we would appreciate no shoes in the apt especially on our rug
if you need to smoke inside, pls go to our pleasant sunny smoking nook (red loveseat surrounded by large windows) and smoke out of the window please.
always lock door behind you
although many of our basic kitchen tools are available for you, pls do respect our belongings and food. it is advised for guests who stay longer periods and plan to
cook often, to buy their own kitchen food items and basics. other than that, our kitchen which is very nice to use, is your kitchen :)
pls do not put teflon cookware or disposable plastics in dishwasher as well as rinsing off food particles from dishes before placing in dishwasher
if we are away, we may ask you to help feed our fish :)
Great location, very convenient and the hosts are fantastic! really easy and helpful.
Nektarios and Vicky are a totally chilled out and awesome couple. They're both a lot of fun and easy to get along with. The apartment itself is just as advertised - it's a great bargain considering that you can get 1 of 3 subways from a block away to get to Manhattan in 10 min. There's a park in front of the place and quite a few bodegas and eateries. The apartment itself is on the 5th floor as stated in the description but this was not an issue for me. I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed 7 days overall and everything was well organized. When they were away, they were always there to give quick answers. Everything is as the pictures you see & as described. Location is great. less than 5 mins from the subway station court sqare ; E train from/to JFK, and 7 train from/to Manhattan and G train from/to Williamsburg and Brooklyn. The apartment is on 5th floor with large windows facing Manhattan. It will give you an amazing city view every night when you come back home! Truly stunning!
Last and most important.. Nektarios and Vicky couple is awesome! They are easygoing and openminded. This will make you very comfortable. You'll feel great that you know these guys and you will love NY more.
Es un apartamento muy bonito, y la cama súper cómoda! Además está ubicado muy cerca del Moma PS1 para los que les gusta el arte moderno, y a restaurantes y cafés. Además, está a 1 cuadra del subway, y es la primera parada después de salir de Manhattan! Sólo pudimos compartir un rato con Nektarios una día antes de nuestra partida, pero estuvo muy pendiente de que todo estuviera bien antes, durante y después de nuestra estadía. Absolutamente recomendable!
The apartment was very nice, clean & cosy, just like the pictures showed. We slept for five days in the room & it was more than enough space for both of us. The bed was very very good. It is very warm & inviting. And you have a great view from the room to Manhattan. The apartment is the perfect place if you want to stay a few days in New York. The next subway station (Court Sq) ist just a few minutes away & you are in five minutes on 5th Av.
Vicky & Nektarios were very nice & friendly hosts & they gave us some good insider advise for restaurants, Bars, etc.
I would gladly refer the place to any of my friends & colleagues. We had definetly a good time in New York.
Thanks for everything!!!
Our stay at Nektarios and Vickys appartement was awesome. It was clean, great located (very close to two subway stations) and the bed was a dream! Additional Nektarios and Vicky are very nice. It was a pleasure to get to know them!
We stayed at Nektorios and Vicky's place for 5 nights. The apartment is in great location in LIC and very close to subway to Manhattan. Even though Nektarios and Vicky were not there, everything as keys etc. was well organized and without any problems. Our room was big enough for 2 and the bed was comfortable. Everything was just as it appears on the pictures, especially the view is spectaculous.
