UNIQUE PRIVATE ASTORIA VILLAGE SUITE 30 DAY MINIMUM

Queens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio Apartment Private Street Entrance Kitchen And Spa Bath

Staying in the North End of Astoria - Ditmars Blvd. train station area is the best for those who are looking to enjoy what it is like to live in a Village type atmosphere. Plenty of restaurants, beer gardens, lounges, cafes and yoga studios to keep you busy. If you are here to spend most of your days in Manhattan then Ditmars Blvd. - Astoria Queens is the way to go.

It is the first stop of the N or Q line, you will always have a seat on the train at this station and the best part is that because it is the first stop there are always 2 trains at the stain so no need to stand on the platform in the heat, rain, cold or snow while waiting for the train.

The other advantage to being at Ditmars is that the trains run Express during rush hour so you bypass all the other people waiting at the other stations. The train ride is 12 minutes to 59th Street & Lexington Ave - Midtown. Our place is 5 blocks from the train station and is always busy so don't worry about taking the train late at night and walking home, its very safe especially near our end of Astoria.

It is all new and fully furnished with pots, pans, plates, towels & sheets WIFI and more. Your Suite comes with a complementary Welcome Packet so you can hit the ground running with lots of valuable information for your convenience.

Suite includes separate street entrance, private bath and kitchen, its like having your own apartment in NYC. Kitchen and Bath both have exhaust fans as well as the bathroom having a louvered window like the front storm door. Front garden wall gives privacy from sidewalk.

Most people ask about laundry facility, well we are lucky because there is an Organic Dry cleaner/Laundromat two blocks away on your way to the subway. There is a decorative hamper with a laundry bag right outside the bathroom so that you can place your clothing there and easily use it to transport wash during your stay. You can either have the laundromat pick up and deliver to you or you can walk it over or you can also do your own wash if you prefer.

Most people who stay here use the drop off service on their way to work in the morning and pick it up on the way home in the evening because they are too busy making the most of their time in NYC.

Great for someone who wants to get a feel for what it is like to live in NY in a real apartment not a hotel room.

Ideal for someone who needs a place totally hooked up for a short time while they visit NY, take a class, or need a transitional place while they look for work or a long term rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I've enjoyed Nancy & Rob's apartment so much that I've decided to look for my own place right here in Astoria! I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the area or a place that made me happier to come "home" at the end of each day. This has been such a great experience and I can't recommend Nancy & Rob's place highly enough. Quiet, cozy, warm...and it has nearly everything you could possibly need for day-to-day life. And it's easy to get to Manhattan. Come here and experience one of New York's best neighborhoods while having a terrific apartment in which to do it. You won't regret it!

I have had fun decorating the place and take pride in having thought of every little convenience. We rebuilt an old house in Astoria and added on to it that now makes it very modern. We made it as green as possible with 2 tankless water heaters, we installed all natural stone and maple and other materials throughout the place so as to keep it as earthy as possible. We also installed Radiant Floor Heating throughout the entire house which heats our home with warm floors. We pulled out all the radiators from our house that most of us NY'ers hate because it dries out the air in our homes. We keep a somewhat organic kitchen with juicing greens every morning and compost what we can to our local collection center. We were overjoyed when we had our senator come and help us plant a tree in front of our home, one of many to now be lining our street. We are somewhat involved in our community and have planted 22 trees on our city street as Tree Stewards of NYC Parks Dept. Rob was a club DJ who still spins when we're not out spinning our cycles around NY. We enjoy cycling in Astoria as well as join official rides throughout the city and tri-state area. We are both Native New Yorkers born&raised.

I have prepared a great Welcome Packet for your stay. It includes all the info that you could think of from directions, restaurants, local stores, international phone plans and more.

Let me be your ambassador to Astoria and NYC while enjoying your privacy in your own space.

Nancy purchased this apartment in 2002

Having grown up in Astoria I knew it was the best kept secret in NYC. Has a Village feel to it yet very much alive with the best lounges and restaurants as well as TV & Movie studios as it was the original Hollywood prior to producers going out West. Visit one of our most popular museums, Museum of Moving Image and treat yourself to a cocktail at The Astor Room, what was once the commissary where actors in the 1940's & 1950's had their meals while in wardrobe.

Your own private street entrance into your own apartment on a well lit street. Convenient location for those who need to drop off laundry at laundromat in the morning, then go across the street for breakfast at Family Corner and then walk 2 blocks to the Ditmars train Station, where you will always have a seat because it is the first stop and because of that there are always 2 trains at the station waiting for you.

Christmas and New Year in NYC

  • 5 of 5
We have chosen to spend our winter break in NY, since we wanted to visite the States and NY was the right place for this time of the year. We have chosen to stay in a rented apartment because we wanted to get the feel of living in an authentic neighborhood. Nancy (the owner) was kind enough to accept us as tenants although we weren't her usual type of clientele, she usual rents to people who stay at least a month. She even offered to accept a shipping that we have sent to her address, and after we left we expected another item, and she has received and reshiped it to our country. We liked everything about the place, it is not very far from the train station (not so close either), and the walk is really enjoyable. On the way to the apartment there are shops, Starbucks, CVS, Laundromat and a few restaurants. Just what you need, we would stop in the morning and get our coffee before embarking on the the subway, and at night, when we were coming back, we were passing by CVS to get water and other items we needed. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe, we felt at ease walking in the dark, even late in the night. The studio is nice, as advertised and it has everything you need, we very much liked the heated floor. The kitchen is fully equipped, so if you plan to stay longer and feel like cooking, you can definitely do that. We very much enjoyed our stay and like to go back. Nancy and her husband seem like really nice folks.

Owner's Response: It was great having Octavian and his wife visit. They planned a well thought out trip because we never saw them. They were out most of the time taking advantage of enjoying NYC during the holidays.
