Overview

Queens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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 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!

Clean and accessible!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I really enjoyed our time at this property. A beautiful home. Very well-stocked kitchen. Amazing finishes to the home. He was especially impressed with all the Hansgrohe.

The property is just a block and a half away from Steinway Station and really easy to get to Manhattan. We stayed here for about a week and had a great time. The owner, Jessica, is friendly and professional. She is very thorough and gave us recommendations on places to eat and shop close by.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Spacious, light-filled space, wonderful neighborhood, quick, easy MTA ride to Midtown Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this spacious, light-filled space in a wonderful Astoria/LIC neighborhood for a second time--a week at year-end--to enjoy NYC at a leisurely pace from this modern, very livable "home base." The photos do a good job of conveying the large bedroom with great king-size bed, plenty of closets, but the mattress is heavenly, too. The Living/Dining/Kitchen, with its big table and comfy sofa area were great "hang-out" spaces for reading, working, cooking, catching up. The space has wonderful modern furniture and a snappy bathroom and fantastic shower. Easy transport by MTA M and R trains minutes away, but also we found LOTS of Uber cars based there, so that reduced waiting time, and it's close to LGA as well. The owners are very responsive and helpful. We'll rent again, it works well for both business and pleasure travel.

Fabulous home base for a NY experience

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great home base for our New York Thanksgiving vacation. Jessica was a great communicator and even when we arrived almost two hours before expected, adjusted things to be ready for us. The place was VERY clean. The king sized bed, couch, and blow-up mattress were comfortable for everyone. We were a family of four with two teenagers and we had plenty of space. The kitchen contained everything we needed for all of our cooking. We were thrilled that simple amenities were there - like toilet paper, dish soap, and even shampoos and a few emergency toiletries. Jessica had a fabulous notebook that helped us understand the apartment, the local neighborhood and basics about getting around in NYC. The subway stop was super close (i.e.: less than a 5 minute walk) and very convenient to go everywhere we wanted. Grocery, pharmacy, and all other amenities were very close to walk to as well. A nearby parking garage made parking simple (for $20 a day, which we heard was reasonable) - as we did not want to be inconvenienced by moving our car to a different spot each day on the street. I would stay here again and I would send my friends and family here too. We saw all the major NYC sites, enjoyed Brooklyn Bagels for breakfast from just a few blocks away, and found it a very quiet and comfortable place to return to at night. My kids enjoyed the Direct TV and WiFii. I was even able to get a Turkey from Whole Foods to round out the simple Thanksgiving meal (a few subway stops away into Manhattan, but worth it). If you come to NYC, don't miss the Tenement Museum on the Lower east side. It does not show up on most "must see" lists, but it was our favorite place to learn some NYC history and have a very unique museum experience. Plan ahead by reserving your tickets in advance.

Great quite place not too far from New York

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this modern and quite apartment in Astoria.

The subway was very close to the flat, which was very practical to get to Manhatten.

The flat was in perfect condition, fully equipped and very comfortable and had access to a small garden, which we did not use as too busy walking around New York.

The check-in and check-out procedure went very smoothly even though we arrived very late.

Spacious, Well-Located, Light-Filled Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for what we were looking for: a platform for exploring NYC and a place to do some work, enjoy a great local neighborhood, and have a good kitchen and living room for laying low... Hosts were proactive and attended to every detail. Minutes from several subway lines made it easy in/out of Manhattan. Newly-renovated with furnishings by top modern designers, plus amenities like a great shower, spacious kitchen, tempurpedic mattress, and more. Highly Recommended!

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.
