“Excellent stay!”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed in Astoria at the end of a long road trip so that we could see the sights of New York. The apartment proved to be the perfect place as it is located a short walk from the nearest subway station and from local shops and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the Neptune Diner which is close to Astoria Boulevard subway station. The apartment itself is immaculate, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Suzanne and Edgar were very helpful during the booking process and did everything they could to make our stay more enjoyable.
This was a first class experience. Many thanks.

“Precious Jewel Indeed!”

I cannot fully express in words how magical this place is. I stayed there in the summer of 2014 with my family for a graduation trip, and then again with my aunt in May of this year. Both visits were wonderful, and the highlight of each was this apartment! The location is ideal––just a few minutes from the subway, ten minute ride to Manhattan, grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants just steps away. It's quiet, a very nice place to come back to after a long day of exploring the bustling city. Edgar and Suzanne (the owners) have been nothing but welcoming and friendly. They truly are great people. On my first stay, for my high school graduation, they even gifted me a beautiful snow globe! Suzanne even kindly accommodated us with an extended check-out time because of our flight out. Suzanne's sister, Heather, was so kind and helpful when my aunt and I met her. There was a beautiful basket with fruit, food, and snacks waiting upon our arrival, water and juice in the fridge, and coffee for the Keurig. Some of my most fond memories of the trip were just peacefully enjoying a cup of coffee each morning.

As I said, there is no way to fully explain how wonderful this place is. If you are looking for a place where you can feel like part of the city, really living in New York for however long you stay, this is it. I definitely intend to return, and look forward to staying again at the Precious Jewel of Astoria!

“Fantastic apartment, fantastic location, fantastic hosts.”

The apartment was better than described. There was a lovely welcome basket of fruit and snacks on arrival. The fridge was stocked with water and iced tea. Good quality toiletries were provided. Although we did not meet Suzzane and Edgar ,the owners, they were fantastic hosts. We reported that the ice maker in the fridge was not working - only because we wanted the owner to know and not because it was a great inconvenience. In no time at all a large supply of water and ice was delivered and an appointment made with the engineer.
Location wise it was great for us a family of six including grandparents, parents and a 7 and 5 year old.
The train station is a 3 to 5 minute walk as are all manner of shops, cafes and resteraunt a. The area feels safe and vibrant.

Don't hesitate! This is a great rental! Suzanne and Edgar are truly great people. My mom and I rented the newly renovated apartment on the first floor and it was as beautiful as the photos. It was our first trip to NYC and were really blessed to have met these two.
This is a great location for these reasons:
1. 10 min to Midtown. It was a $20 cab ride back to the apartment from Midtown at night.
2. 1 min to the subway station
3. 1 block away from the hospital. My mother got really sick on our last week there and got admitted to the hospital. Edgar graciously took us and picked us up from the hospital.
4. 1 block away from bakeries, cafe, eateries.
5. Suzanne and Edgar are the best

We had a wonderful weekend staying at this Astoria apartment.Very nice neighborhood. The owners left us with a gift basket full of treats. Water in the fridge and a very clean and new apartment. They had a notebook full of restaurant choices, and books about the area. The subway and bus stop are nearby. When we had a question, the owners responded very quickly and were very helpful.
We plan on staying again next year for a long weekend.
