1 Bedroom, King Size Tempur-Pedic Bed, Queen Air Mattress, Sleeps 4

The Ultra Modern Garden Apartment is conveniently located just a 1 minute walk from the train station, as it is right around the corner. From there, it only takes 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by train

Tthis beautiful, modern, high design, one-bedroom garden apartment is located in Astoria, New York City. The apartment was designed to provide you with comfort and happiness. You will be surrounded with high quality, ultra modern and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures. At about 750 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen have an open-plan design. After a long day, lounge on the very comfortable modern sectional sofa or classic Saarinen lounge chair while watching movies on the large flat-screen television with satellite tv.

When dining in, you can prepare meals with ease and enjoyment in the beautiful modern kitchen, which is equipped with the best modern appliances and gadgets to cook a 5-course gourmet meal. Whether you make a feast from scratch, or whip up a simple meal, or just order in from one of the many amazing nearby restaurants, you can dine on the large dining table as you sit comfortably in the classic Eames dining chairs.

Come bedtime, step into the spacious bedroom, and enjoy a wonderful night's sleep atop the king size Tempur-Pedic mattress. The Tempur-Pedic mattress will surely provide you with a therapeutic, rejuvenating rest. For the third and fourth guests, we have available a high quality queen size air mattress with a memory foam top.

Step into the large spa-style bathroom for a warm and soothing therapeutic shower, under the 10-inch rain showerhead and 6 shower jets, which are sure to massage and relax you. The bathroom also has beautiful cabinetry, an expansive mirror, and other attractive fixtures.

The door in the kitchen will lead you to the large garden. What a treat to have an outdoor space in the city! In the garden, you will find a dining table, chairs, bench, 2 lounge chairs, umbrella, barbecue, and fire starter for the barbecue. 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 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 amazing luxury apartment that is extremely 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!

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.

COMFORTABLE STAY IN QUEENS-CLOSE TO THE BIG CITY

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first time with VRBO and our first time to NYC. We were very pleased with the beautiful updating to this one bedroom apartment. We enjoyed the spaciousness of this apartment over even a one bedroom hotel suite. The kitchen is modern and equipped with anything you could need when you want to prepare meals for yourself. There is a grill out back you can use while you relax in the garden on the patio furniture. The open concept dining/living room has a large dining table , satellite tv, comfortable couch and lounge chair. The bedroom has a comfortable bed and large modern custom wall unit with more than enough room to store all that you could possibly bring. One of the main selling points when we looked at this property online, was the shower in the bathroom. Wonderful. You will enjoy it to start the day or relax after a long day. The whole apartment is very well equipped and modernized. Jessica had a binder with all the important information for the apartment, subway, neighborhood, laundry, shopping, restaurants and more. The subway is just around the corner and we were on it every day.
This is a great location to stay for NYC and depending on what else you want to do, there is a lot to do in Queens and Long Island as well. We found a small grocery store close by,next door to a small coffee shop that we enjoyed. Drugstore next to the subway and plenty of restaurants within walking distance or a short ride. We felt like we were at home in this apartment in Astoria , Queens , New York.

Happy travelers from Central California

  • 5 out of 5
My family just returned back to California after a wonderful week in New York. The apartment was amazing and Jessica was very accommodating and very easy to work with. My family rented two of the apartments and both were phenomenal. The location was great so convenient to the subway station around the the corner. The neighborhood was quiet, but it had stores and restaurants and we even used the laundromat at the end of the street. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this property to other families! Great memories, thanks Jessica for being so helpful. The Cruz Family

Great Place, awesome hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
This was a great place, very convenient subway around the corner from the apartment, quick ride to Manhattan. The apartment is just as pictured and is probably one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in. The bed was amazing…am now looking into this type of mattress at home. Jessica was great to work with, honest and very thoughtful. They had some repairs done one day while we were away from the apartment and she brought baked goods and some great beer for us to enjoy for the inconvenience. I hope to come back to NY and when I do I will plan to stay here again.

Modern getaway in ageing town

  • 5 out of 5
The owners of this property were very accommodating to us during our stay. Offering extra immenities as we requested. We were given lots of contact information on where to go and locations for restaurants. Loved the Spanish restaurant at the corner of Broadway and 41st. street. lots of choices to choose from, great shopping immenities in the immediate Stienway area. Easy acces to subway and bus transportation. Several grocery stores drug stores for necessities. The apartment was grand for a New York resident. Extremely comfortable King size bed, large closet area that included mulitiple drawer space. AC units for the hot weather. A lovely garden to enjoy eating out or barbecueing. The six jet shower and overhead rain sprayer were the perfect culmination to a day of sightseeing, visiting family or just plain trying to relax. The kitchen provides a european flare that makes any cook feel like a Bobby Flay chef. This property has so much to offer even the queen blowup is a Temperpedic bed, great for any additional guest. This is the be all and end all rental property for a very busy yet relaxation haven for a New York minute vacation.

Just as pictured

  • 5 out of 5
this apartment was great. Jessica was very helpful and accommodating. The neighborhood is great. Eclectic with convenient places for meals of all types. Good access to Manhattan, the subway is close.
One caveat, if you have car, parking is limited with alternate side parking and not much available. In summer it would not be a problem walking a few blocks after finding a parking place, but in winter.....

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.
