We really thank them for everything!!! They helped us and were very kind to us. They are really respectful... we were very well treated... thank you again!!! if you wanna come to france any time soon, you can come and visit us for a while.. ;)
Yeimi & Melvin were lovely hosts :)
They were very friendly & helpful providing us with information on the area and sights.
They also helped us out when we were stuck in NYC due to Hurricane Sandy by letting us stay on longer.
Would definitely recommend them
Yeimi was very helpful in seeing me into the accommodation, which I had to myself for a week. The main occupant Maria returned on the last day and was most kind to me in the day preceding the Sandy storm. I left one day early because of the shutdown, but Elmhurst is the kind of neighborhood which would be resilient and supportive in a difficult time. Facilities in both Elmhurst and adjoining Jackson Heights include a cinema, post office and wide choice of shops and restaurants and the 7 Line is an excellent transit route.
We had a great time living with Yeimi and Melvin. They are very nice people and their apartment is great and cosy. They even gave us some tips about events taking place in the city. Even though we didn't have our own room we had plenty of privacy because they are not home much, but when they are they are sociable and nice.
The neighbourhood was friendly and calm and the L train was just minutes away.
The room was good, and Yeimi is a really kind person. The room was cosy, and I found all I expected to find.
The other guy I shared the house with was a good companion, and the subway station was very close so my overall judgement is positive, I think I'll come back next time.
Host was helpful & nice, I liked the apartment. Area is great, very close to subway. Ready to come back!
The friendly hosts and lovely furnishings make this place as comfortable. Yeimi and Melvin were very helpful and always on hand with advice and suggestions. The bathroom is small and the bed in the common area, but it's exactly like on the photos. I extended my stay at Sweet home and would definitly come back again!
Yeimi was a very nice host who tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The neighborhood was safe even when I came home at nighttime.
The room was as per description. The only thing I was not happy with was the cleanness of kitchen and bathroom. But this could also be my individual opinion...
Hemos estado super a gusto, Yeimi y Melvin son geniales.
The room is exactly as shown in the photos. You have Wifi access, TV in the room, etc. The apartment is really close to the 7 subway, and still relatively populated on the roads even when I came back past 1130pm, so it's quite safe even if you are a lone traveller.
Take the 7 line all the way to Flushing for cheap and good Chinese food, some places sell Japanese food or 2 stops away from Elmhurst Ave for Indian food. Locally at Elmhurst Ave, after you get off from the subway station, tacos was great. Across the road from the tacos store, there is a bakery store that sells great chocolates and other stuff for the sweet-toothed. There is also a supermarket nearby to grab groceries.
It's a few subway stops from the US open, though I did not get the chance to watch a match during my short stay.
Travelling downtown to Manhattan is quite convenient. Navigating the subway system may be daunting initially, but after you understand how things work, it's relatively simple.
Most of the time, Yeimi wasn't around. Melvin sometimes comes home. Maria, her other roommate was very nice and helpful. Morning coffee, bread and cereal are available for you before you explore the big apple. Most of the time, I had the apartment to myself and can enter and leave as I wish. Sometimes, there are other travelers as well in another room but generally not a problem.
Great for the traveller who wants to live like a New Yorker. Reasonable price and location! Highly recommended.
