Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Queens - Modern Garden Apartment

Apartment, 1 Bedroom w/ Queen Bed, Extra Queen Bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Welcome to this modern, newly renovated, private, 1 bedroom garden apartment located in Astoria, New York City. It is only a 1 minute walk to the train station, as it is located just around the corner. From there, it is only 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by train.

The apartment is complete with modern furniture and fixtures throughout and is of a spacious, open-plan design, with ceramic tiled flooring.

The apartment has a large living room with two comfortable sofas and a large flat-screen television with satellite tv.

There is a spacious kitchen with brand new appliances and is fully equipped to cook a gourmet meal. There is also a large dining table with dining chairs.

The door in the kitchen will lead you to the large garden, which you will find a dining table, chairs, bench, 2 lounge chairs, umbrella, barbecue, and fire starter for the barbecue. What a treat to have an outdoor space in the city! The garden, with its quiet, serene environment, will put you in a relaxed state after a long, busy day around the high-energy city. Lounge in the garden among the flowers and other flora. Feel free to harvest from the garden the herbs, vegetables, and fruit that are in season. Depending on the season, you will find parsley, basil, thyme, oregano, sage, chives, cilantro, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, string beans, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, figs, and more.

The apartment has a spacious spa style bathroom with shower area.

There is a bedroom with modern furniture and a queen size Tempur-Pedic bed, which can fit two guests. For the third and fourth guests, there is a light-weight queen size Tempur-Pedic bed that can be easily moved from the private room near the entrance of the apartment where it is stored, and can be returned there during the day so that it is out of the way. The sofas can also be used for sleeping.

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

About Jason Riggs

Born and raised in Astoria, Queens, New York City, I am happy to always have been able to call New York City my home. I am an avid tennis player, golfer, and snowboarder. Me and my wife, Jessica, enjoy hosting our guests throughout the year and are always available to ensure that all of our guests have a happy stay!

Jason Riggs purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jason Riggs chose Queens

The apartment is located in my townhouse in Astoria, Queens, New York City. I love it here in Astoria, as it is so welcoming and there is always something to do here. The townhouse is located just around the corner from the train station and only 10 minutes by train to reach Manhattan, so it is very conveniently located. The townhouse is also in perhaps one of the safest areas in New York City, as it is predominantly families and young professionals who live here in Astoria.

What makes this apartment unique

The townhouse has a wonderful garden area, which is a rare luxury to have here in New York City. Located just around the corner from the train station makes this townhouse ideally situated. The townhouse is on a quiet residential block, however, there are many markets, restaurants, shops, etc., located just a few minutes walk away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great host, great apartment, great location. I recommend that anyone who wants to go to New York should consider staying here for excellent value for money. Will definitely stay here the next time I visit.

Perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I were meeting friends from Germany to be their guides as we lived in New York years ago! We also were able to visit our families that lived on Long Island. Either way we went, either into Manhattan or out to the Island-we were perfectly situated. We also got lucky most times with finding on street parking as we rented a car as well. The subway stop is literally right around the corner. The apartment had all the necessities you would need and a few extras. The pictures are exactly how it looks. The owners were very responsive-especially when it came time to refund our deposit. We all had a great time and the next time we go to New York- we will be staying there again!

Hi Jessica!, only now arrive at Uruguay
I wanted to thank you for the pleasant stay in your apartment
Thank you very much for accepting my amazon orders. In my country we can not bring orders from USA, the government here provides a maximum of 300 USD a year. And in my neighboring country Argentina, is prohibited.
So I am very grateful you have understood the situation. We are third world and what is accessible to you, to us is novel or inaccesibe
Thanks also for the shower, the first day we arrived
The apartment is great, clean and everything works perfectly
I hope to travel to NYC and soon again able to stay in her apartment
Thanks for everything Jessica !!!, good life

Great location! Great stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This awesome little apartment is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Everything you need is close by. The one bedroom apartment was perfect for my wife and I and our 9 year old son. Plenty of room, especially compared with New York hotel rooms. A nice patio out back for drinks in the evening or coffee in the morning. Astoria is a very diverse neighborhood. We went to a local sports bar and enjoyed the Brazil v Mexico World Cup game. The place was packed with everyone wearing the jerseys of their home country. The atmosphere with all of these energetic fans was amazing.
It was a pleasure to deal with the owners. Jessica was great. Everything was seamless.
Thanks again. We will be back.
Mike and Monique

Garden Basement Apartment

  • 4 out of 5
As said in previous reviews the owners Jason and Jessica were quick to respond to any request or questions. The apartment is comfortable, with steep stairs down into the living space. The photographs on the web a true reflection of the space. (The garden depends on the season!) Though you will find everything you need to do some in house cooking, the selection of pots and pans are very limited. It is more a basement apartment than a garden apartment as one has to traverse some uninviting steps up to the garden area. The only windows are the ones in the kitchen area. The garden/patio furniture could be better taken care of especially given the rainy season. The bedroom is a tight fit and one has to move about with great care so as not to bump into the corner of the base of the bed. The bed itself, with Tempurpedic mattress is super comfortable. Only one bedside table. The fact that there are no windows in the bedroom was not an issue and the apartment very quiet apart from when people moved about upstairs. The wooden floors do creak a lot even when people move about with care. It is a great location with easy access to the subway and a quick ride to Manhattan. A great location for short stays. The space became a bit too confined for a twelve day stay. Would we stay here again? The answer is yes!

Perfect for our family on a budget!

  • 5 out of 5
Loved this apartment! The owners were quick to answer questions about booking, and most hospitable. They provided everything we needed and even offered to help with our special requests. The apartment was clean, well stocked and in a great neighborhood. Very easy access to the subway stop- we spent most of our time sightseeing in NYC and the commute was easy to everything we wanted to do. Perfect for our small family visiting for the first time. We even got to see some stars filming a movie in the neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
