Interaction with Guests
We are very easy going and we leave the interaction up to you. We like to make ourselves available but we have found that most New York visitors have very specific interests and reasons for coming to the greatest city in the world and we want to give you the freedom to explore and make this city your own.
No smoking inside.
Pets are considered on a case by case basis.
Appreciate taking off street shoes inside.
Copy Of ID (Passport or Drivers License) upon arrival.
Please be responsible for all your belongings, if you leave something behind I will do my very best to find it and send it to you but I cant be held responsible for your private belongings.
Any stay under 4 nights can only be booked 2 weeks before arrival date.
We would like to leave as little of an impact on the environment so we appreciate if you observe NYC recycling rules, save water and conserve energy to the best of your ability.
Make yourself at home and be comfortable
Having been to NYC a few times, it was refreshing to not stay on Manhattan. This location is conveniently placed closed to a few Subway stations, and you can get to Mid Town within 10mins of leaving the front door!
The area is nice, and there's a pub pretty close by open for Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner. The area feels safe, and there's plenty of on street parking if you're driving in.
Steffan is a lovely host, and communicates well and quickly. He made us feel very welcome!
The apartment was perfect, and everything is as pictured in the supplied images for the listing, there's also A/C in every room.
Finally, a word the the wise, don't try and sleep on the couch. It's barely comfortable to sit on.
I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend this place to anyone. Honestly staying just off Manhattan isn't an inconvenience, we didn't even notice it.
Steffan was very accommodating and was there to meet us. He answered his phone whenever he was needed. There were a few small issues when we were arrived but these were rectified immediately. Metro was very close and convenient and local bar/restaurant "Dutch Kills" was great. Well heated, good kitchen and comfortable beds. Overall, an excellent experience.
We stayed at Steffan's flat in December 2014. Steffan was incredibly difficult to get hold of and we had no hot water for the entire stay. Very disappointing, I definitely wouldn't go back.
We called the phone number we had been given to contact Steffan, we sent text and whatsapp messages as per his instructions, unfortunately he took two days to reply and his responses were unspecific and unreliable. When he did respond it was to say that it would be fixed that day, but it wasn't.
We tried to contact him again.He told us it would be fixed tomorrow. It wasn't.
5 days and not a drop of hot water. 6 people, no warm showers (we did brave a couple of ice cold showers which were horrible). A huge let down.
We complained to airbnb when we got home. They did what they could, but we hadn't realised that the best way to escalate a complaint is to submit it before the booking has finished and before they release your funds to the landlord.
As we were only there for a few days we wanted to give Steffan the benefit of the doubt and chance to fix the problem. I wish now that we'd lodged our concerns with airbnb during our trip.
1. Stay somewhere else. Long Island City is a great location, but this landlord is just too elusive.
2. If you have an issue in this apartment (or anywhere else), escalate to airbnb straight away, just to be on the safe side.
New York was fabulous. The area around the apartment is quiet with the metro very close. Would love to go back and stay somewhere nicer.
Steffan is a great host, he made sure that me and my family felt at home. The apartment is great (clean, spacious, nice neighborhood)
First airbnb experience and I'm totally satisfied.
È stata una vacanza bellissima, l'appartamento era davvero bello, come dalle foto proposte da stefan.
Stefan si è dimostrato molto disponibile.
Appartamento pulito e in una zona molto tranquilla. Metropolitana a 5 min a piedi.
Lo consiglio a tutti
L'appartement est bien situé par rapport au Métro, il est assez propre et est plutôt chaleureux. En revanche les murs et le plafond ne sont pas du tout isolés...Nous avons vécu avec les voisins du haut de façon très très proche pendant deux jours..! (Soirée jusqu'à tard, le bruit des toilettes, machine à lavé et levé matinal agité!)
Un conseil : si vous aimez être tranquille après une longue journée de marche, de bruit et de visites...Passez votre chemin!
Nach einem langen aufreibenden Flug sind wir bei Steffan angekommen, den Kühlschrank geöffnet und ein kühles Bier hat uns angelächelt, das war perfekt. Das Apartment liegt absolut Zentral, mit nur kurzer Entfernung zur Subway Linie N und Q, 39 th Street, von dort sind es 2 Stationen zum Central Park, einfacher geht es kaum. Das Apartment war sehr sauber, alle 3 Betten schön vorbereitet und es sind wirklich 3 getrennte Schlafräume. Die Wohnküche ist mit allem bestückt was man zur Selbstversorgung braucht. Unser Auto konnten wir direkt vor dem Haus parken und die Nachbarschaft war sehr vertrauenserweckend, so dass wir auch keine Angst um das Auto haben mussten. In der unmittelbaren Umgebung gibt ein sehr nettes Lokal gleich um die Ecke und einen Frühstücks Diner unter der Subway Station.
Steffan vielen Dank für das nette Zuhause, wir hatten eine super Zeit in NYC

I was born on the Island of Cyprus in the same bed as my mother was born but it was too hot for my Swedish Dad so we moved to his home land when I was 6 months old. They bought a small farm in the northern woods of Wermland and from very simple ingredients they made five more kids at home but life in organic paradise ended when I was 12 when my Mom missed her big Greek-Cypriot family in Astoria NY and took all 6 of us to the Big Apple. So life has shaped me into a innocent street smart romantic that believed in the inherent good of all people. I still have the house in Wermland and Im in the process of building a house in Bahia, Brazil with my wife Cristina. We have 4 boys between 13 and 6 and my big girl just turned 25. I adore my little Dutch Kills community where I have partnered up with the neighbors to open a day spa, art gallery, gastropub, and a community garden. We reward ourselves with travel and opening up our home to other adventurous explorers around this fabulous world.
Warm Welcomes, Steffan Olausson Partridge
