“Getting the great neighborhood feel”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

For our first ever trip to NYC, we wanted to get a feel for the neighborhood, the people, how they live and relate, something that's hard to do staying in an antiseptic hotel that separates you from everything. Terry and Kristin's place seemed perfect, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The apartment is clean, quiet, Kristin offers great tips on everything from restaurants to travel to touristing sites. We were blown away by the number of eateries in easy walking distance, our personal favorite was "The Igloo", right next to the subway. What can't be over emphasized enough is that the subway N and Q stop is the last one on the line, so it is very easy to find a place to sit. We, being from wide open New Mexico, were a bit nervous at first about getting lost on the Subway system, but it is amazing, fast, well mapped, easy to transfer....we had a blast!! If looking for a really nice place to stay, with easy travel options, plenty of terrific eateries, exceptionally welcoming and informative hosts, you can't go wrong with choosing this apartment. Our only struggle, which Kristin duly warned us about, and even demonstrated the proper technique, was unlocking the two double deadbolts on the front door. Our first night back, we had a heckuva time trying to remember the proper method for getting back inside. Afterwards, I carried a piece of paper in my pocket with the correct steps to take! This merely added flavor to our exceptional stay! Thank you Kristin and Terry!

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were very happy with our little home away from home. We stayed for a week and found the apartment to be as advertised. Our hostess, Kristen, was very helpful and responsive to all of our needs. The apartment is fully equipped and comfortable.

It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get to Times Square from Astoria. Which is pretty darn good.

In all, we would return and would highly recommend the rental.

Terry and Kristen are perfect hosts, accommodating and quick to respond. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. Though we did not use the kitchen for cooking, it looked (because I checked!) more than fully equipped. Would definitely stay here again. Great location and very quiet.

“Great place to stay ...”

The pictures of this property are accurate. The apartment is very clean. The owners take pride in their home and it is evident. The access to transportation is fast, easy, and efficient. We used the subway everyday and arrived home very late and never felt unsafe. The information provided by the owners is very helpful and accurate. We loved the European Coffee shop and Rosario's Deli. Mojave Mojave was very nice and friendly as well.

We enjoyed the Tennis, Yankees game and the West Village the best and shopping downtown the least. New York events are well organized and the service provided is superior.

As for the owners, you couldn't deal with better people. They truly want you to enjoy your stay. If you have any questions, they will respond immediately. They are knowledgable of the city which is very helpful.

If we returned to New York, there is no doubt that we would stay here again.
