About Karen

My Husband and I bought this apartment before we had our kids and now live a few miles from the place. I put a lot of hard work into updating and decorating the apt. We live close and welcome our guests in person. We are always a phone call away and will always offer our assistance if needed. We encourage all our guests to enjoy the comfort of the home and all that NYC has to offer. We love this apartment and ask that you treat it like your home away from home

What makes this condo unique

Friendly and safe residential neighborhood with easy accessibility to Manhattan (20 min train and 10 min car ride) without having to give up on living space. Also the area is Mecca for Shoppers as it is surrounded with multiple malls and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great experience. The apartment was clean, spacious and well-equipped. The neighborhood was safe and there were great facilities nearby. The metro was not far, and getting to Manhattan in a cab did not take too long either (in normal traffic of course). It was overall a wonderful experience and we would definitely stay at Karen's apartment again.

Near to several shops and the subway!

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Faruk, the hosts, were very nice and helpful. From the booking arrangements with changing of dates they were ok.

The apartment location is very good as far as commerce and subway are concerned. But as it is at the same level and adjoint to a Long Island Expressway flyover, the noise of trucks and cars was quite audible from midnight to 6 AM despite the double glazing. Not for light sleepers.

The building is very well kept with nice and helpful doormen. The parking space was also handy. The apartment and bedding were clean upon our arrival. A couple of towels missing upon arrival were quickly delivered after hosts were contacted. A few items at apartment already show signs of aging and would need a bit of mending and attention (e.g. cutlery drawer, balcony door lock, small sofa seat cushions, front door hard to open and close, cockroaches visits during the night).

We had an overall very pleasant stay there. Would we be willing to return? Yes, for sure.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Karen and Faruk"s apartment was exceptional! Since we traveled by car it was wonderful to be able to park our car in the parking garage for the week. Their apartment is a 2 minute walk to the subway, which was quite convenient.

Faruk called us right away when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed...thank you! Their apartment did have everything we needed from a stove, refrigerator and everything you need to prepare meals to a washer and dryer, which was great since we were there for a week. Our kids loved having their own bedroom and bathroom, which is wonderful especially when you've been traveling for days and staying in small, cramped hotel rooms. The doorman to the building was also very friendly and helpful with many suggestions of things to do and see!

We would highly recommend this apartment and on our next trip to NYC we will definitely be staying here again!

Very good apartment central in Queens!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Karen and Faroq`s apartment. It was perfectly located form us, short way to all communication to Manhattan. It had everything we needed, both in living room, kitchen and bath. The owners was very helpful in helping us with every question we had, both about the area and attractions, and did everything they could to make our stay so good as possible.

We really do recommend everybody that wants a very good, affordable and spacious apartment for their stay in New York to contact Karen and Faroq, you will not regret!

So glad we picked this one.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for the 6 of us. The mattresses on each bed were nice and comfortable, two of them were even memory foam; perfect to relax away the tiredness from NYC adventures. Building has elevators functioning all the time, this was a big help for my mother. One day we even had guests over, having the doorman and door buzzer system was useful. The kitchen has all the amenities for cooking a proper meal.

The location is ideal, you are surrounded with shopping malls and Manhattan is only 10 minutes away by car and 25-30 minutes by Subway, which is one block away. We will rent this place again whenever we are back in NY.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Farooq were so hospitable. There was a slight hiccup at check in and both Karen and Farooq came running to help us. They were great! The apartment was so comfortable for 5 adults, a 4 year old and a 5 month old. It was also conveniently located next to plenty of shopping and public transportation. Having an assigned parking spot was great, although the parking garage was very tight. After a couple times of coming and going, we were able to Maneuver quite well. Just make sure you don't have an overhead cargo thing on your vehicle.

I would definitely stay there again.
