Charming house in safe, quaint neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this rental for 6 nights at the end of June/beginning of July 2016. We had an amazing time! The owners, David and Asaf, were wonderful to work with before getting there with answering questions and working out details. They both met us at the house upon our arrival to give us a tour of the house and discuss our stay. Asaf even drove us to buy our Metro tickets for the week and teach us which bus routes/subway stops to use! They made great recommendations for close by restaurants and other needed items such as grocery, pharmacy, etc. They could not have been nicer, more helpful or more delightful!

The house itself is located in a quaint and beautiful neighborhood. We felt very safe the entire stay and getting around was very easy. The house was very comfortable and lent itself to a much needed place to be together and relax after a day in the city or to slowly wake up with coffee and breakfast in the mornings. It was great to have a kitchen so that not every meal was eaten out. The kitchen was equipped with all that we needed. The beds were very comfortable, the AC worked well and the living area was spacious. In addition, there was a covered parking spot that we used as it was equally easy to drive to Long Island and explore as it was to take the Metro into NYC to explore. Great location to be able to do both.

I would highly recommend this house to a group of 6 or less. You will have plenty of room and can even enjoy a nice front sitting area in a pretty front yard. David and Asaf also have a green thumb so you can enjoy their many plantings and flowers while you relax outdoors!

Amazing home and service. We were very pleased with our stay....they made us feel just at home. Came into town with my children and mom to visit my husband at work. The home was clean and comfortable and also provided many additional items that you will never get it a hotel. Very pleased with our results and if ever in town again will be booking this house. Thank you David 💗 for making our first time renting a home a grand experience.

Accommodating Owners, Very Nicely Equipped

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven thoroughly enjoyed our stay. David and France were very helpful and accommodated all of our requests. The house is spacious with a terrific kitchen. The neighborhood had all we needed, with a very close grocery and liquor store and an easy walk to the subway.

Five Stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be treated like a valued guest or family member, you have found your vacation home! The pictures do not do justice to how nice & comfortable this home is. Soft beds & whirlpool tub are very nice after touring/walking the city. David & France will treat you like royalty, from all the little extras they have in the home, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, maps, raincoats, a fully stocked kitchen (minus the food, of course)---you will not want or need anything, and if you do, David & France are more than happy to help. I would definitely utilize the bus to get to the subway, part of the walk is uphill & it was windy/cold when we stayed, you get a free transfer, anyway. Do allow yourself at least 45 min travel time to the city, as is stated on the website. We were having a leisurely stay and did not mind, its up to you what kind of experience you want. The Key Foods grocery story was very nice & a short walk away, lots of prepared food choices, if you want to avoid cooking. Cannot express enough how enjoyable our stay was, both because of the service and accommodations we were provided. Thanks so much, David & France!

Wedding Experience 2014

  • 5 of 5

David and France were such gracious hosts and made sure we had every comfort we could possibly need. Directions, maps, recommendations and they were available for any questions by just giving them a call. The home was safe, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the area and felt like it was truly a home away from home. Would stay there again if we have another group traveling to New York.

Very good location with amazing and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

This property is near to trains buses and the Grand Central Pkwy. There is a grocery store a block away. The owners of this property are the most amazing, helpful, and knowledgeable people I have met. We arrived at the end of an exhausting trip to the US and Canada as a group of older adults from Thailand. The owners arranged to meet us at the bus terminal in Manhattan and while one transported our LARGE load of luggage to the house the other showed us to a place to get cleaned up in the city so that we could start sightseeing. Truly exceptional folks. The house is large, clean and very comfortable. The owners supplied milk, bread and egg staples. After our stay we were so tired, some of the group being over 80 years old, the owners transported us to the airport. This is the place to stay if you are going to NYC. Thank you both very much for making our stay wonderful! Nim
