Hello, I am Petya Velkova.
Welcome in my hotel "Lapa" Let me show you around.
I live in a 3 bedroom apartment in Astoria, Queens, with my husband Thiago from Brazil and a very good friend Jonathan from Chicago . I have more than 30 great locations. Of course they are not in the same apartment, but in Astoria, MANHATTAN and Woodside, the greatest neighborhoods of the city. You are very welcome to be part of my little, international family.
I am originally from Bulgaria and I speak English, Bulgarian, Russian, and a little bit of French. I am a very friendly positive person and I am also very open to foreign cultures, music, food, and customs. New York is a very unique city because people are from all around the world and contribute to the diversity of daily living.
As a professional figure skater I have participated in competitions throughout most of Europe. As a child I traveled often with my family to France, Germany, Italy, California, Tunisia and Spain. In addition, I have traveled extensively to North America, Brazil and Tunisia. I love to engage in sports, yoga, tennis, skating, skiing, swimming, hiking, music, dancing and I love to cook. My father and my brother in law are professional chefs. I guess I inherited the passion from them to prepare delicious foods. I would love for you to experience my cuisine.
My rooms are located in a great neighborhood with restaurants, bars, international food, stores, libraries, parks, schools, shopping malls, and cinemas. Everything is nearby and convenient to public transportation which runs 24 hours a days. It is only 5-25 min to NYC. Or if you need a taxi, they are abundantly available outside the apartments. All rooms great available with new furniture, AC, WiFi and Cable. I also can offer you occasional free skating classes with me at the local rink.
Welcome to my apartment. I know you are going to feel like you are home. I am waiting for you my new friend. Welcome to New York!
You may want to check out them on (website hidden) maps to see if it is convenient for you.. Each location is located a block from the subway train.
It is more than pleasure to meet you and host you!
Welcome home my new friend!
