Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I personally went to look at this apartment before choosing this one for my brother and his family visiting New York. It is extremely clean, convenient to the subway with quick and easy access to Manhattan and surrounded by the great restaurants and cafes Astoria has to offer.

Suzanne and Edgar have to be the most amazing hosts I have ever met. They went above and beyond in every way. Bottled water and ice tea in the fridge, the pantry was stocked with coffee and tea, even toiletries were provided. My brother and his family are celiacs and their welcome basket included fresh fruit and gluten free foods for them.

Suzanne even emailed my sister-in-law restaurants in Astoria where they could dine with gluten free items on the menu and a list of local stores where they could shop for gluten free products. My brother and his family were so impressed and loved everything about their stay and they look forward to booking your apartment next time they visit.

All the stellar reviews you have read about this apartment and the hosts are true and well deserved.

Thank you so much again Suzanne and Edgar.

Truly is the Jewel of Astoria!

  • 5 of 5

We lined up a quick trip to NYC and needed a place to stay for 3 nights. Fortunately, we found the Precious Jewel of Astoria! Owner is very responsive, got back to us immediately that the apartment was available for our dates. Transaction went smoothly, and we immediately had information on location and how to get in to the apartment. We really liked the keypad entry, eliminates the need to remember the key! We arrived at NYC at 8 AM, and spent most of the day at the USS Intrepid museum. When we arrived at the apartment, we were exhausted, thirsty and hungry. Inside we found a basket of treats, cold drinks in the fridge, and a fresh bouquet of beautiful flowers! These little touches really added to our stay! The apartment is truly as shown on the VRBO website. All furniture, appliances in great condition and worked properly. AC units also in great shape, and kept us cool during a very hot spell in the city. The apartment is tastefully decorated! Beds were comfortable, with adequate pillows and blankets. Kitchen included a Keurig coffee machine and plenty of K cups; This was a real plus for us. Plenty of glasses, mugs, plates, silverware to allow you to cook in the kitchen. The bathroom is fairly small, but typical for NYC apartments. Dish Net included on TV. And the apartment is clean, flooring is beautiful, paint is fresh and neatly applied. Overall, we had a great time staying in the Precious Jewel. One improvement would be to install different blinds in the main bedroom; the orange street light shines brightly into the room!

Enjoyed our Stay Immensely

  • 5 of 5

Had a great visit to NYC to see the sights and visit family. The subway platform was a short walk away with easy access to Manhattan. Also close: a great diner (The Poseidon), several laundromats, and a variety of shops and restaurants. Friendly Irish bar -- the Irish Rover -- right up the street. Slainte! Property staff were attentive and friendly; the place was very clean and we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Also enjoyed the basket of goodies upon our arrival with cold drinks waiting in the fridge. Thanks to Suzanne and her crew for a lovely time!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for my family of four during our week-long stay in NYC. The property was exactly as described, and Suzanne was wonderful to communicate with leading up to and during our stay. We felt safe with our two sons, ages 12 and 9, in the neighborhood and loved how conveniently located the subway station was in relation to the apartment. Everything was clean and the modern kitchen was great for having breakfast each morning before a full day in the city. We plan to stay in the Precious Jewel of Astoria for our next visit to NYC and we are recommending the property to our friends.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at Precious Jewel of Astoria for a weekend concert event at Randall's Island. Location was perfect - a reasonable walk to the event, close to subway, shopping, food, etc. MUCH better than staying at a hotel; the apartment was clean, safe and comfortable - couldn't have asked for more, and Suzanne was a pleasure to deal with answering all of my questions very quickly. Would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to.

Great hosts and cute place

  • 5 of 5

I made this reservation about 24 hrs before arrival due to the sudden need to attend a funeral. Edgar responded to my email within 15 minutes and called me to talk. He and Suzanne could not be any nicer. I was already super stressed about making last minute arrangements to travel with my husband, 8.5 month twins, and mom. They got the paperwork ready within a few hours and even printed the rental agreement for me to sign upon arrival. They gave us their parking spot (super narrow driveway but we made it in with an inch to spare on each side with our SUV rental) and Edgar even helped us unload all our luggage and carry upstairs for us. There was a welcome basket with fruits and snacks and a letter to welcome us with their deepest condolences! How very thoughtful of them. The apartment itself is clean and welcoming. There is AC in every room (key to our survival with two babies) and the housekeeping girl even offered to come on the weekend (which we declined). She gave us extra supplies (garbage bags, bottled water, etc) knowing that we have two babies. The bathroom was clean with towels, toothbrush/paste kits, bars of soap, shampoo, and conditioner. The tub is pretty deep so it may not work for someone with severe physical disabilities. Everything had a very homey feel to it and we couldn't have appreciated Edgar and Suzanne's help anymore. 5 stars for excellent customer service. Suzanne was even so honest as to tell me that VRBO accidentally charged me $100 for the babies and refunded me the amount. The apartment is super close to trains and the highway so very convenient for anyone looking to tour Manhattan! Thank you Edgar and Suzanne for everything!
