Mark's place is a little awkward with two bedrooms right next to each other. Our bed was firm, the kitchen is nice, and everything worked pretty well. Parking was very tough in the evenings but
we managed to find spaces both nights before too long. We did not spend much time in the apartment and it was 5 minutes from where we wanted to be. Overall the place is fine for two couples but you need to be friends.
Mark was a fantastic host, the place is amazing and very spacious. We had 12 students staying there over Thanksgiving break and we had more than enough room. If taking public transit takes a few transfers to get into Manhattan, but cabs are quick and quite reasonable. Beds were fantastic and place clean and nicely furnished. Overall it was fantastic.
We had a super time in this house in queens. Good transfers into Manhattan, and a very nice neighbourhood. Mark is a seriously gracious host, he absolutely went the proverbial extra mile for us. Mark, thanks a lot for having us, and all others, this is the property you want if you are visiting new york as a group, and want to feel like a real american. Joost van der voort
My family and I had a good experience at Mark's Queens rental. The house was spacious and comfortable for all 8 of us (all adults). The neighborhood was quiet and we always felt safe. Having parking and a washer/dryer was very convenient. The house is outdated in some ways but this did not pose any problems or inconveniences. I would stay here again and would recommend to friends.
Pros: nice neighborhood -- quiet, safe, plenty parking places, Juniper Valley park nearby, a lot of groceries around. Mark is a very nice landlord -- caring and responsive. Clean apartment. Nice kitchen -- well equipped and convenient, nice bathroom with a good shower cabin. Good linen. Reasonably priced for NY.
Cons: very low ceiling -- around 6.4 ft (I am 6.5), quite old furniture -- bed, sofa, etc., No rail on 4 stairs leading to the basement, and the stairs are uneven and high. Since this is a basement apartment, everything happening above is very well heard, though Mark and his family were very mindful of this.
Overall, a very acceptable place if you need to stay in NY for several days.
Mark was really helpful, saving the day for us at least once. We couldn't have stayed anywhere else in New York for so little and had all the amenities to wash up and do laundry etc.
The neighbourhood is peaceful and suburban and felt really safe. There were places for groceries 10 minutes away, and the subway was a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride. Once of the local shops sold unlimited subway cards, which helped. The local cab company, Liberty, were quick to arrive and get us places.
All in all our trip was made possible by this place, and we thought it well worth the price. Thanks Mark!
La estancia en casa de Mark fue muy agradable. En todo momento fue muy amable, con indicaciones sobre transportes y puntos de interés en la zona y eso hizo mucho más fácil familiarizarse con la ciudad. El barrio es muy bonito y tranquilo, bien comunicado y tiene cerca la Avenida Metropolitana con un montón de tiendecitas interesantes y una fantástica pastelería italiana. ¡Genial!
Bezpieczna, spokojna i cicha okolica. Sprawna komunikacja z kartą MTA autobus i metro. Wygodna łazienka i ogarnięta otwarta kuchnia. Gospodarz bardzo pomocny i otwarty.
This studio apartment hits the sweet spot - affordable,clean, cute and.... includes parking!! The host was efficient and honest - I would stay again :)
This is a basement apartment. Low ceilings, down a flight of outside steps. The top step has tiles loose; really treacherous.
I called Mark to get password for wi-fi. He called back (from Spain!) and gave a number, but it didn't work.
The location was good. I grew up in the neighborhood. Went for a run each morning in Juniper Valley Park.
Mark and his family has been staying in our flat in Barcelona. It was a pleasant experience and we certainly recommend them to other Airbnb hosts.
