The home was amazingly comfortable and peaceful. It was exactly what my family and I asked for and Mr. Giuseppe, the owner was a really sweet person who would check up on us to see how we were doing. Overall it is a very nice and clean place to stay. I will definitely stay there again when ever we are in NY.

From booking to checking out, Giuseppe has made this first floor apartment a worry free place to stay.

Booking: Giuseppe was very quick to respond to my inquiries and extremely accommodating to the changes on the originally booked itinerary. I originally booked for just 3 people and added 2 more folks, plus arriving a day earlier.

Check-in: My brother was planning to arrive sometime in the evening ~11pm. Traffic was horrible through NJ/NYC. Giuseppe was able to meet with my brother that night for checking in.

Overall stay: Pros, conveniently located just a few hundred yards from the Valley Stream LIRR train station which goes into NYC or out to Ronkonkoma. Within an hour we were in Central Park or the American Museum of Natural History. The apartment was cozy and clean. We are pillow happy people and asked Giuseppe to provide more pillows for my wife who was pregnant which he quickly brought by and extra towels too!

We had 4 adults and 1 child staying here. There were 3 bedrooms. 1st - 1 king (2 twins together) and 1 twin. 2nd - 1 queen. 3rd - 1 twin.

Suggestions:
The heating in the unit was a bit challenging. We had Giuseppe adjust it, but it seemed to revert back to being cold in the late evening. early morning. Make sure you get instructions from Giuseppe on how to control the heating if you like it warmer than the average bear.

The apt has lots of natural light which is great. Majority of the bedroom windows face east and south west. If you are a late riser, then you may want to ask Giuseppe for some darker curtains. With a 4 year old, we were forced up early anyways.

Awareness:
The bathroom is fully functional and extremely clean, but be aware that it is tight quarters.

Thankfully my parents live just down the road, so I know that the Villiage of Valley Stream has a parking ordinance that does not allow cars to be parked on the street between 3:30am and 5:30am. There are only signs on "select" entrances into the Villiage, so you will not see it on the streets. As such, be mindful that there is only room for one car in the driveway.

The apt is located on a corner street that does receive some road noise. Unfortunately, there was a construction going on in the street, but this shouldn't be there too long, just some repairs.

Overall
Great stay... and look forward to staying here in the future when visiting in town.

We were very pleased with the convenient position of the property. Guisseppe was so helpful to me as I was organising a family rendezvous from the UK to attend a wedding in Long Island.. All was provided to enable a comfortable stay, and it's close proximity to the Railway Station meant that we could travel into the City easily.
I would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to stay close to New York without the expense of City prices.

Perfect for family

The place was perfect for my family vacation in New York.

From general to detail, the neighborhood is quiet, comfortable and where you can find many amenities just a couple of blocks. Front Park is ideal for walking and from the train station is connected to the entire city. I chose to rent a spacious vehicle to move with small children and plan everything from Valley Stream.

The apartments are well equipped and beautifully preserved. The downstairs bathroom is something small but with good organization can be used in family.

Giuseppe turns out to be a great host, friendly and willing to give all the help to feel comfortable at home. Even gave me a barbecue to celebrate as I like.

Fully recommended.

Perfect for family or a large group.

Stayed in house NOT this apartment -- Great stay.

I should note that I don't ordinarily submit reviews unless I am very impressed with a place... that being said, this Home Away stay impressed me enough to head to the keyboard. Now, I can't comment specifically about this apartment since me, my wife and 3 kids stayed in the upstairs apartment (logistical issues forced us to link the upstairs apartment to this rental account). Nonetheless, I can comment on the general cleanliness of the house, the apartment that we stayed in, and the trustworthiness/responsiveness of the home owner/property manager (Giuseppe Resta). I had never rented from Home Away in the past so I was a bit skeptical about what I would get -- I was pleasantly surprised!! Our apartment, was clearly not a 5-star hotel room --mattresses were not as soft/comfy (were actually not that thick at all :O( ), room was not as modern, range of wifi was not as good (pretty much restricted to kitchen/dining area), & some expected amenities [e. g, soap, coffee] were not available. Regardless, the apartment was MUCH more spacious than most hotel rooms, and my whole family was able to sleep/relax VERY comfortably. The home was very well-kept and the location was great -- very convenient to NYC/Long Island, but less of the congestion and parking hassles. The home owner, Giuseppe, was very responsive to whatever questions/requests we had, and he even went "above and beyond" to ensure that our stay was comfortable (e. g, he knew we would be arriving late so he got us some milk and snacks so that our kids wouldn't go hungry when they awoke the next morning).

In fairness, I should emphasize that, if you are looking for a "fancy hotel experience," you will be better off going somewhere else -- although I doubt you will find a place comparable in size for anywhere near the cost. I think it is best to think of this place as staying at a friend’s apartment (albeit, a friend that is attuned to providing you with the most comfortable lodging that they can arrange). We will definitely be coming back -- my only concern is that, after people stay here, they will want to return in the future... making it harder for us to make a reservation :O(.
