My husband and I were first time visitors to NYC and came for NYE. We loved the area of this rental. George and and his son George were so helpful from texting days before we arrived, giving us info of what to expect and texting and calling on the day we arrived. It was very easy to contact them, but we really didn't need anything. The rental was about 4-5 blocks (10 min walk) to the nearest train station which we utilized to ride into Times Square. This rental had dedicated parking (included) which was a huge plus, we parked the car and just used the public transport system which was easy to navigate and we felt completely safe everywhere we went. The streets were easy to drive to and you don't need to drive your car. Just leave it parked and enjoy the $2.75 train ride. Everything you need is straight ahead. The rental was spectacular. The furnishings were tidy, comfortable and fitting of the rental. There was so much space for the 2 of us, I wished we had more time to spend to enjoy the rental itself. The owners went above and beyond ensuring there was coffee and tea also a starter pack of bathroom toiletries. We highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy the city but also have a cozy home to come back to. We scored with George and his son.

No hesitations recommending to friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in the summer of 2017. From the moment I inquired about booking this apartment, George was quite the hospitable host with his timely responses and always friendly and positive attitude. I even joked to my husband that George must work in customer service. The apartment was in a very convenient location, very close to Laguardia Airport. The train was a short walk away and the ride in to the city not bad at all! The apartment was clean, nice, and spacious with 2 beds in one room and a bathroom that seemed to have been updated. It was nice to have a full-size kitchen and parking available in the back as well! We didn't need the parking space, but it came in handy when my friend, who lives in NY, dropped us off. We didn't have to worry about parking for him. The apartment also had internet service, apple TV, as well as thoughtful amenities like a restaurant guidebook that George had put together. Another plus was the front door that we had to go through in order to get to the apartment door, and I felt like that added another extra layer of security. The Castillos were very kind, friendly, and helpful. I would not hesitate to rent from them again. I have already recommended them and their apartment to a few friends!

Excellent place to stay for a NYC visit

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to father and son Castillo for their wonderful home and the warm welcome. The place is very convenient for a NYC visit to enjoy the quiet neighborhood evenings in Jackson Heights after the buzzling Manhattan. And...blindly follow the restaurant recommendations of your hosts: "Uncle Peter's" is a must.

We visited NYC during the season holidays and found it very easy to travel in/out of Manhattan. Even late at night after show or opera, it was an easy and safe return via subway.

We will return.

Close to sub-way and convenient for going into the city for entertainment. Market for shopping and stocking food for our stay was a breeze. Host were very hospitable. It was a perfect place to land and rest after a busy day in the city. Clean, safe and everything we needed for a home away from home.
