We had a group of 11 and the house had plenty of room for us. It's no Ritz Carleton, but it is a decent place to stay in a neighborhood that we felt safe walking around in. The train is a short walk and there is a great pizza place on the way. The house could use some tlc, like painting, but for the money, I would recommend it. The owner Mark is very easy to deal with. The kids loved the game room in the basement.
Not sure if other review posted or not. We had a great stay. We had 18 students in our group and the property worked excellent for us. The students loved the pool table. Great Fresh Bagels 4 blocks away on Fresh Pond Road, called "Mr. Bagels". Mark was super easy to work with during our stay.
Very Functional with a large group. The Ritz Carlton this is not, but that is not what we were looking for during our stay. Very nice accommodations for our group of 18. The property had plenty of room and great working appliances. Mark was very easy to work with and provided easy instructions for entry. Very close nit neighborhood. Very nice grocery store located about 8 blocks away. Should have brought a few extra bath towels, but washer and dryer helped keep us clean and dry. All cleaning supplies located on property to suit your own personal cleaning level. We had a great stay and would stay again with our student group.
My family came to visit for a NY wedding and very much enjoyed the house. It was clean and comfortable. Backyard patio was a nice touch specially on a warm night. Location is easily accessible to Grocery /Stores /Restaurant. .Everything was a hop/skip and a subway ride away.
We were a group of friends, We stayed for 4 nights.
The place was great! We made the right choice staying here.
The owner of the apartment is also a very friendly and helpful
person. The Flat is also very clean and neat. There are enough
beds for everyone, and there is also a Pool table and a Foosball
table for the entertainment! All the facilities worked very well.
The nearest subway station is less than 10 minutes walk.
I highly recommend this place for a group or for a family.
Pros: Great, quiet neighborhood where we felt safe, even late at night. It’s a short walk to the subway & bus lines with easy access to Manhattan and there is convenient shopping, coffee shops, dining, etc., all very close by. Mark, the owner, was personable and easy to reach (he was out of town) and the rental process was simple and straightforward. Instructions for getting into the apartment were easy, and there is reliable, fast, and free internet access. All the beds we used were adequate and the bedding, while not fancy was clean.
Cons: Unfortunately, the lack of cleanliness of this property kept it from being a TRUE gem in Queens. Bathrooms & kitchens in particular, need a deep cleaning and overall, the entire place would benefit from a good scrubbing and sprucing up. Although visible surfaces appear clean, a closer look reveals that the shower curtains are damaged and/or moldy, bathmats inside of shower are old and stained, floors are dirty, cabinet fronts, baseboards, walls, and light switches are dirty, and most closets & cabinets have left over food, toiletries, or other items either left behind by previous guests and never discarded by owner or cleaning service. We were hard-pressed to find a clean or empty shelf to put away our own food, toiletries, & belongings.
After we complained the owner sent someone to clean, but she did only a marginally better job, so we cleaned again after she left so we could use the bathrooms & we all purchased cheap flip-flops to take showers. Items in closets, cabinets, and shelves remained.
Yes, we stayed, because we cleaned the areas important to us after the cleaner left, and because the beds were comfortable and clean. Plus, we had already paid in full and would have had a hard time finding a place for all 8 of us in NYC for a week while waiting for a refund. The saddest part, this property could be awesome with just a little TLC and attention to detail.
After our stay, I wrote to Mark about the lack of cleanliness. I was surprised that he refunded our entire cleaning deposit & will say again, he is very responsive and easy to reach. But, if overall cleanliness is important, then this may not be the place for you unless he can provide newer photos & proof that he has done a thorough and deep cleaning of the property. His response also to me gave me the impression that due to his busy schedule he does not personally and regularly check on the condition of the property, but promised to do so.
