About the property
- Apartment350 sq. ft.
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay1 nights
This apartment is part of a private home with the owners residing on the bottom floor. The home is located just 10 minutes short of a car ride from JFK and about 20 minutes from LGA. It is close to banks, restaurants and grocery stores. About a 15 minute bus ride to the nearest train station to the city which is a 45 minute train ride on the E & F trains from Queens to Manhattan.
The Studio apartment is located on our top floor and is clean, comes with its own little kitchen and bathroom. The bed is a Queens size bed that fits 2 but we have queens sized blow up bed for an additional 2 people. Lots of closet space and natural sunlight with its own A/C, TV and cable ready. Wifi is also available.
The family is located on the bottom floor and your entrance to your space is separated so you won't really see us that much. There is a washer and dryer in the common area and a closet where you can leave your coats, shoes, etc.
Airport pickup can also be arranged but if taking an Uber (which I recommend you do) it's about $12 and $25 from LGA. Stay away from the private cab drivers.

About Roseann Grant
We are a fun loving bunch; love to meet and get to know new people from all walks of life. I'm from Barbados and Saladin from Jamaica, so deeply rooted in our caribbean culture. We have three children, ages 16 to 7 and our family dog, scrappy.
Roseann Grant purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Roseann Grant chose St. Albans
We want to open our home to travelers and offer our warm hospitality.
What makes this Apartment unique
The home is a stones throw away from JFK and about 45mins from the city on the train. It is a quiet neighborhood. For those traveling by car; there is ample parking on the block with no parking rule regulations. We also have a charging station should you have an electric car, this will be an additional but affordable cost.

Let me start off by saying that this was my first experience using HomeAway or an AirBnB type of rental so going into this i was a bit nervous, but Roseann was so welcoming upon my arrival right up until the end.
The Studio Apartment was EXACTLY as pictured online with no surprises, very clean and cozy! Roseann and her family live downstairs, but you would almost never know it. She provides you with a key to the studio and also has a small book/manual that let's you know what's around the area and how to get to the city. You could always just shoot her a message and will receive a response in no time! :)
I had a later flight on the day of check-out and she advised that I could stay for as long as i needed to, which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend this studio apartment to anyone not looking to stay directly in the City, yet not too far away.
Thanks again Roseann for your great hospitality!
Thanks for the warm words. It is always a pleasure meeting nice people such as yourself. I'm happy you chose us for your "first" HomeAway stay and I hope we will cross paths again in the near future.
Once again, thank you!
Extremely clean and cozy with a super comfy bed!
Roseann is a great person, really helpful. Apartment was a great size with everything needed to get by. Looking forward to stay again when I’m in NY
Because of some miscommunication we arrived late without the code for the keyless entry, and had to ring the doorbell. Roseann went out of her way to welcome us cheerfully and the room was wonderful - better than the pictures. cozy, comfortable, and stylish. Totally worth it!
Casa confortevole. Accessoriata di tutto ciò che occorre per una vacanza tranquilla e spensierata!!!
Fin da subito ci siamo trovati a nostro agio. Roseann si è mostrata ospitale e premurosa.
Ha dotato il piano dove alloggiavano di tutto il necessario. Ha messo a nostra disposizione la lavatrice e l'asciugatrice per una cifra ragionevole per ogni lavaggio. L'alloggio è dotato anche di climatizzatore, utile per quando tornavano a casa dopo aver camminato per parecchie ore sotto il sole (di settembre) e sentivamo la necessità di ristorarci con un po di aria fresca. Il frigo non lo abbiamo trovato vuoto ma caricato di bevande fresche e cose dolci. In generale è stata un esperienza molto positiva che rifaremmo ad occhi chiusi. La zona è molto tranquilla. Ci sono diversi mezzi di trasporto per raggiungere New York. Dall'autobus Q5 alla metrò oppure il treno sulla sopraelevata!
Ci siamo trovati bene con la metrò card. Facile da utilizzare e caricare. La Roseann ce ne ha fatto trovare tre disponibili da utilizzare subito. Per una famiglia composta da tre persone né basta solo una da utilizzare più volte. Aggiungo infine che la famiglia di Roseann è molto discreta, mai invadente, ci siamo davvero trovati bene!!!! Esperienza che consiglio a tutti. Per chi vuole trascorrere due settimane in tutta tranquillità e godere del necessario è proprio l'ideale: New York diventa ancora più vicina e raggiungibile in tutti i sensi!!!!!
Grazie di cuore a Roseann e a Saladin per la loro ospitalità!!!!!
