About the property

1 Bedroom, King Size Tempur-Pedic Bed, Queen Air Mattress or Sofa Bed, Sleeps 4

The Ultra Modern Garden Apartment is conveniently located just a 1 minute walk from the subway station, as it is right around the corner. From there, it only takes 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by subway.

This beautiful, modern, tastefully designed, one-bedroom garden apartment is located in Astoria, New York City. There are high quality, ultra modern, and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures throughout the apartment. At about 750 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse. There is also access to the garden. The apartment also comes with free wifi.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen have an open-plan design. In the living room, there is a comfortable, modern sectional sofa and classic Saarinen lounge chair as well as a large flat-screen television with satellite tv atop an Eames shelving unit.

The beautiful modern kitchen is equipped with quality appliances and gadgets. Whether cooking a feast, preparing a simple meal, or ordering from one of the many wonderful nearby restaurants, there is the large dining table and classic Eames dining chairs where to enjoy a meal.

The spacious bedroom has a king size bed. The king size mattress is Tempur-Pedic, which provides a very therapeutic, rejuvenating rest. The mattress is atop a walnut bed with marble bedside tables and lantern-like lamps. There is also a large modern wardrobe and mid-century modern bench with pillows. The ceiling lighting is also mid-century modern.

For sleeping accommodations for the third and fourth guests, the sectional sofa can be used, as it splits into two pieces and forms a queen size bed when facing the two pieces towards each other. Alternatively, we have available a high quality queen size air mattress with a memory foam top.

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

The large spa-style bathroom has a soothing, therapeutic shower area, which includes a 10-inch rain showerhead and 6 shower jets. The bathroom also has beautiful zebrano wood cabinetry, a large mirror, and other attractive fixtures.

The door in the kitchen opens up to the large garden. This is a special treat -- to have an outdoor space in the city! In the garden, you will find a dining table, chairs, 2 lounge chairs, and umbrella. The garden is a nice place where to lounge with a morning coffee before a busy day or relax after spending the day in the high-energy city. Depending on the season, the garden has some flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruit.

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 a truly wonderful space that is enjoyable to wake up, relax, eat, and sleep in. It is sunny and cheerful, clean, new, fresh, and will contribute plenty of happiness and wonderful memories to your holiday in New York City!

Great apartment in a cool part of town and only a short train ride from Manhattan.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a lovely week long stay in Astoria. This apartment is fantastic and has everything you could ask for, it is spotlessly clean, the kitchen and living area is very spacious and has cable TV. The bathroom is deluxe with one of the best showers I’ve had in a long time. The bedroom is perfect with plenty of closet space. We were in December and the apartment, with the heating, was extremely cosy and warm. It is in a cool part of Astoria, with plenty of shops and restaurant’s less than a block away and a Rite Aid store on the corner for all your day to day needs (sign up for a discount card to get the best bargains).

One of the highlights of the apartment is it’s proximity to the Subway station, half a block, on the R and M lines which take you straight into Manhattan, with a journey time of approximately 15mins to 5th Ave and less than 20min onto Times Sq. Also it was only an $18 cab ride form La Guardia Airport.

The only slightly negative aspect for us, was that there were some rather loud neighbours, banging around later at night and when they showered in the apartment above, you could really hear it (the system that is). But this aside, the apartment was just perfect for us and we would highly recommend it. The owner was very friendly, welcoming and happy to be contacted at anytime if we need anything. We would certainly stay there again if we return to the Big Apple.

Clean, quiet, and a hop, skip, and a jump away from good food, drinks, and the subway!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was super cute and had everything we needed! It’s proximity to the subway and many places to eat made it super convenient. It was very clean and we thought the price was reasonable! Would recommend to loved ones and friends as a viable option when visiting NYC for sure!

Great Location! Great Service!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our girl's trip to NYC. The apartment was close to the Steinway station which made it super simple for going to/from the city! The R line will be your lifeline. The apartment was pristine. Jessica was so helpful during our stay, from giving directions to bringing us extra blankets. The neighborhood was quiet, and we felt very safe. If you forgot anything, there is a Rite Aid around the corner. Definitely recommend!

Great Location and Space

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 2 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 12) who stayed at this place for the U.S Open. Great location near the subway to go to either Manhattan or Flushing Meadows

Many really good restaurants within walking distance. We always felt safe walking around the neighbourhood. Parking on the street is not easy but manageable. You need to be aware of the alternate side parking for street cleaning.

It can get a bit loud with the tenants upstairs especially on the bedroom side, so I would recommend earplugs at night.

Highly recommend!

Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Very nice place for three to be comfortable. Two adults and one child. We felt right at home when we arrived. Everything is so convenient to this location. Subway, stores, cafes, etc. Everything is right around the corner in either direction. I would definitely return to this location if I come back to NYC.

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.
