Overview

Queens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, Queen Tempur-Pedic Bed, Extra Queen Bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Modern Garden Apartment in NYC is a 1-bedroom apartment located in Astoria, New York City. It has direct access to the garden. The apartment is only a 1 minute walk to the subway station, as it is located just around the corner. From there, it only takes 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by subway.

The apartment is complete with modern furniture and fixtures throughout and is of a spacious, open-plan design, with ceramic tiled flooring.

The apartment has a large living room with two comfortable sofas and a large flat-screen television with satellite tv.

There is a spacious kitchen with brand new appliances and is fully equipped to cook a gourmet meal. There is also a large dining table with dining chairs.

The door in the kitchen will lead you to the large garden, which you will find a dining table, chairs, bench, 2 lounge chairs, and umbrella. It is a very special treat to have an outdoor space in the city! The garden is a wonderful space where to lounge with a morning coffee and to relax after a long and busy day around the high-energy city. Depending on the season, the garden has flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruit.

The apartment has a spacious spa style bathroom with shower area.

There is a bedroom with modern furniture and a queen size Tempur-Pedic bed, which can fit two guests. For the third and fourth guests, there is a light-weight queen size Tempur-Pedic bed that can be easily moved from the private room near the entrance of the apartment where it is stored, and can be returned there during the day so that it is out of the way. The sofas can also be used for sleeping.

We also have a pack 'n play (playard) for baby, available upon request.

The neighborhood of Astoria is the most diverse area in New York City. You will find this special area to be very conveniently located to many shops, boutiques, markets, restaurants, cafes, bars, beer gardens, museums, parks, and any other establishment that one needs or wants to have nearby in an urban setting. Many restaurants in Astoria have been highly rated by the Zagat restaurant guide, recommended in the prestigious Michelin guide, and raved about in The New York Times. For you, our guest, is a large welcome booklet in the apartment to help you with your planning, which includes details such as an extensive list of restaurants in the area, many nearby markets, and a map of the area with key points. This booklet will help to immediately get you familiar with the area.

The apartment altogether is enjoyable to wake up, relax, eat, and sleep in. It is nice and cheerful, clean, new, fresh, and will contribute plenty of happiness and wonderful memories to your holiday in New York City!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is a gem in NYC. Located on a great, safe street in a good Queens location, with subway a 2-minute walk away and direct service to Manhattan. The apartment was even better than the photos! It was spotless, quiet, and felt welcoming right away. Jason, the owner, was amazingly accommodating and very accessible. I highly recommend this place, and it will definitely be the first place I (we) check out on our next visit to NYC. Thank you!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to New York City and we were celebrating my wife's 50th birthday.

The apartment is perfectly located just around the corner from the subway and close to shops, cafe's and bars. It is bigger than the photographs suggest and very well set out and furnished.

Jessica and Jason are very friendly and professional hosts.

The property played a big part in making our holiday one of the best we have had.

Thank you

Very impressed!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was immaculate! I almost ate those awesome NY bagels Jessica gave us off the floor just because it was so clean! We had 2 couples for 2 nights, and the place was very spacious. We loved having a little patio with a garden to enjoy cocktails. The tempurpedic mattresses were VERY comfortable. Jessica had a fantastic, organized 3-ring binder filled with not only the rules & regs, but also many recommendations for dining and groceries and more.

We had a fabulous time bar-hopping and walking around the area which is very safe and enjoyable. The subway is one block away and easy to get to Manhattan in about 10-20 minutes, depending on where you are going and/or to Citifield which is where we saw the Foo Fighters!

The only suggestion (and this is NOT a complaint, just a "nice-to-have") would be to have an extra pillow for each of the 4 people. The A/C unit was definitely adequate, but we also didn't have 95 degree/90% humidity weather so we were comfortable.

Both Jessica and Jason were very cordial, helpful, and accommodating (I think I emailed them about 10 times with questions beforehand.) You totally CANNOT beat this place as compared to stuffing 4 people in an over-priced, tiny hotel room in Manhattan. We would definitely return!

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were in town to visit family in NJ, but wanted to be close to the city to do things in NYC too. So the location was perfect, close to the subway, but with affordable parking options close by. The area was very interesting to explore too, lots of shops, restaurants nearby.

The apartment was exactly how the pictures look, clean and spacious! My husband loved the Tempur Pedic mattress, and keeps talking about it even now that we are home. Some nice touches: I liked that there little green space outside too, air conditioning (it was hot while we were there), the binder provided on everything from restaurants to things about the apartment. We didn't get a chance to meet Jessica & Jason (the owners), but their communication was great through phone and email, very helpful and friendly. We only had one thing we wish (and it's a small thing)- hooks in the bathroom would be helpful, as there wasn't a place to grab a dry towel after showering easily or hang up a robe or clothes to change into. But overall, our stay was great and we would definitely consider staying here next time we are in town! :)

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were meeting friends from Germany to be their guides as we lived in New York years ago! We also were able to visit our families that lived on Long Island. Either way we went, either into Manhattan or out to the Island-we were perfectly situated. We also got lucky most times with finding on street parking as we rented a car as well. The subway stop is literally right around the corner. The apartment had all the necessities you would need and a few extras. The pictures are exactly how it looks. The owners were very responsive-especially when it came time to refund our deposit. We all had a great time and the next time we go to New York- we will be staying there again!

Astoria is located in the New York City borough of Queens, just over the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge, which stretches over the East River from East Midtown Manhattan. This special neighborhood has a wonderful history, which includes being the location where Steinway & Sons, the finest piano company in the world, chose to build shop in 1853. The closest train station, named Steinway Street, where the M and R lines stop, is just a one minute walk from the apartment and will get you to East Midtown Manhattan in only 10 minutes. Astoria is a very lively area, which is heavily populated with restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, and has a vibrant nightlife. The Museum of Moving Image and Kaufman Studios is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Also nearby are the Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the MoMA affiliated PS1 Museum.
