For a 10-day stay in NYC James apartment was a good home to us, the rooms are nice, comfortable and clean, exactly as shown in pictures. James was a good host, available when needed. The lock of the door of the building still stuck, a little exercise will help. In the neighborhood there are many cafes, restaurants and shops. To the subway, it takes 10 minutes, on the way you can find a excellent bagel shop.
We didn’t try the big TVscreen, because we had live-TV on the roof terrace every night. The view is overwhelmingly beautiful! And priceless!
We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend James, his apartment and the view.

James' place is cozy and cool, and he is an easy going landlord. The big TV screen and Touchless Automatic Motion Sensor Trash Can is a plus, and all the neighbors I met are nice as well. One thing is- it does take 10 mins walk to the nearest subway, but it is considered a reasonable distance in NYC. Over all I like James' apt a lot, tidy, comfortable, and safe.
Beautiful, comfortable apartment in a decent location. The views out of the bedroom window to midtown are fantastic, especially at night. There is very little to complain about with this place except that if you plan on staying for longer and cooking meals, the kitchen could us a bit more stocking up with tools. Getting to and from Manhattan will take at minimum 20 minutes depending on what time of the day it is but you have 5 different lines in 2 different stations to choose from. Lots of character in the neighborhood with wonderful middle eastern and latin cafes and bars. The front door to the building is fickle, yes, but with a little practice, or a good shove, it will open up.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient to the subway and the Astoria area was safe and amenities were close. The apartment pictures were accurate and the accommodations comfortable. We did have some issues with keys and wifi, by James resolved these as quickly as possible. We would stay again.
James was very nice. The apartment is comfortable.
A fine location with magnificent views of downtown Manhatten.
Only problem was with the front door key which did not always work without wiggling.
A comportable stay, recommended venue.
Great Apartment, exactly as shown in Pictures. Very Clean. James was lovely too and very accomodating, collected and dropped us back to subway with our bags. Wifi was down during our stay but plenty of cafes in New York with Free Wifi. Would def stay here again.
James' place was awsome. Close to shops, eateries and public transportation. When we are in New York again we will seem out James' place again.
Apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures and James was there on arrival. The location is great as it is close enough (10-15 min walk) to get to subway for Manhattan links but you also have a selection of bars/cafes/delis etc just a couple of blocks away. The actual apartment itself is quiet and peaceful and we really enjoyed our stay there. Would definitely recommend and James was a really nice guy.
Brilliant apartment in a great location. James was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks! Polly
I've worked with james for many years... cool, calm and collected cat (with a sick golf game) check his place out! its dope and he'll probably throw in a free golf tutorial is you ask nicely.
