Hello, this is B
We had a wonderful stay at Beata's apartment in New York. The bedroom was large which was great and the kids (16 and 19) sleeped in the lounge room on two separate sofa beds. The kitchen was small but very functional, we cooked a few meals and managed very well. The apartment was very clean, and close to Manhattan and the surrounding areas by subway which was easy to use. Beata welcomed us on our arrival and explained everything, she was the perfect host and a very nice person. Thank you so much.
We agree with positive reviews posted by others here. Beata was great at keeping in touch before and during our visit. Her apartment is exactly as expected from her photos & description - it was just what we needed for a family visit (parents + 2 kids - 7 & 9) to New York. Very close to Metro, a lovely 24hr diner & groceries. Neighbourhood felt safe and we were out late due to the summer light. Air con was great for the summer heat. Had a bath which was great for the kids.
Just be aware that small kids need reminding to walk normally inside. Any running or horseplay may get Beata in trouble with her downstairs neighbour - which she will pass on to you. This was not a problem, but worth knowing - would not want to contribute to complaints that might cause her to re-think whether to let out apartment on airbnb as her place is a great!
Thanks Beata - we would love to return again one day to stay longer!
Beata is absolutely lovely to deal with and the place was great for our stay in NYC. We had my parents in the bedroom and my husband and me in the lounge on the extra bed. It is still spacious enough with 4 adults. The location is great you don't have to travel far into the city and we found we didn't even need to switch trains in order to get to the major destinations. A couple of blocks over is great bars/restaurants if you want to stay in the area. Won't hesitate to book with Beata again!
My wife, my 3 kids (13,12,9) and myself stayed 5 nights in June in Beata's apartment in Long Island City. The location was perfect for us: Just 5 mins to the E-station and another 10-20 mins to manhattan. We typically left the place 9am - spent the day in manhattan and returned between 5 to 6pm. We had diner in the area. There are some nice restaurants in the area (5-15 mins walking distance) with family friendly prices. The apartment was big enough for the 5 of us - but is better suited for 4 (e.g. the kitchen just had a small table with 4 chairs). Some of the furniture (e.g. the kitchen chairs) might need a makeover. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed. If you mainly look for a place to sleep, close to Manhattan and don't want to pay the Manhattan prices than this is a place I can recommend. Beata was always very responsive and checking in / out worked perfectly.
Beata´s place was small, cozy and clean. It took us a little bit of adjustment to get used to the surroundings since the neighbourhood seems a bit scary at night, and coming from Europe and Australia, we weren´t used to it.
But once we´d adjusted, our stay had become instantly awesome!! The location was just perfect for our first stay in NYC! Having Manhattan a couple of stops away via metro saved us a lot of time!! Loved it!! :)
Beata herself was amazing to us! She´d even gone out of her way just to help out, ensuring that my friends and I were doing fine. Her replies were always immidiate and fast.
I´d totally recommend her place to everyone!! I´d stay there again, anytime!!
I cannot even begin to tell you what a wonderful stay we had at Beata's place! Very very close to the subway into town, and close cab ride from LaGuardia. She had great communication with us while planning the trip and was at the apartment waiting for us when we arrived. The apartment was HUGE for NYC (bigger than the pictures convey), extremely clean and the A/C worked great in the 80° and higher weather. Apartment was secure and we felt very safe there and walking around the neighborhood late at night. Beata herself gave us great information about what to do and how to get to things. We will definitely be coming back and staying at her place again! We had 3 people and there was definitely room for 4 or 5 (if you don't mind sharing a bathroom). Stay here! You will NOT regret it! I'm a planner and stresser! She made every stress free!!
Perfekt gelegen - top Anbindung nach Manhattan - sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin - Danke!
We had a wonderful time at 'Feels Like Home'. It was a peaceful retreat from the city. We discovered the cool area within walking distance from the apartment with great restaurants and park.
The apartment is a wonderful space, clean and peaceful. I would recommend this apartment to anyone coming to NYC.

Beata was a wonderful guest. She came down with her puppy and they left the place in immaculate shape. It is always nice to deal with people who are pleasant, quick to communicate and considerate.
If you are going to New York you should definitely stay in Beata's place. She is very nice and helpful person so I am sure she will give you hundreds of tips if it comes to places worth visiting , the way of transportation and many other things. She is brilliant in that! She can help you in planning your great New York City experience in a blink of an eye. Honestly!!! :) Beata's apartment is very cosy and nice. It has really good location. It's close to Manhattan and there is this great view of the city (by the water) near by. Her apartment is also well stocked in useful things and appliances. I really enjoyed my stay in her place and would definitely do that again and again if I would only be around!!
Beata is one of my oldest friends and former roommates....
She is the sort of person that no matter what, will go out of her way to make sure you are happy and would do backflips to help a friend. I'm sure her AirBnB guests will be no exception..
She is the sort of friend that will drive you to the airport at 4am even if means not sleeping a wink before a long day at work..... likewise she would sit in traffic at rush hour to pick you up just so you had a friendly face to greet you. Whenever I'm sick, she is the first person to come rushing...
I have two older dogs that require special care. There are only two people on the planet I will entrust them to when I go away : the Vet and Beata. If I had a child, I would entrust her with his or her care.... I'm not quite sure how else I can can reinforce her trustworthiness and dependability but I guess you can come after me with water balloons and paintball guns if there is a problem. :D
Beata's apartment is adorable and immaculate and is located in one of the most up and coming areas of the city. It is minimal, always clean, and most importantly carries the same happy, love-filled energy that Beata herself exudes.
A block or so away you have PS1- a part of the Museum of Modern Art and home to cutting edge art exhibits and fun rooftop parties in the summer time. A couple blocks further and you have the waterfront where you can relax in the park and soak up the fun and the most beautiful panoramic view of the NYC skyline.
If you're not from NYC and don't know the city well, don't be discouraged by the fact that this apartment is not in Manhattan itself. Its a super quick quick subway ride or taxi ride over the bridge from Manhattan.
Wishing you a wonderful trip to NYC... stay at Beata's! :D
