Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Queens - Modern Sunny 2 Bed Apartment

2 Bedrooms, Tempur-Pedic Beds, 1 Bathroom, 1 Queen Air Mattress, Sleeps up to 6

The Modern Sunny 2 Bedroom Apartment is located just a 1 minute walk to the subway station, as it is right around the corner. From there, it takes only 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by subway.

This wonderful two-bedroom apartment is located in the lively Astoria, New York City and features tasteful, modern, and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures throughout. The apartment is very sunny, airy, and spacious. At about 850 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse.

The living room is very large and comfortable, with a beautiful modern sectional sofa and classic Panton lounge chair. There is a large flat-screen television with satellite tv, which sits atop the beautiful solid walnut media cabinet.

The kitchen is fully equipped. Whether cooking a feast, preparing a simple meal, or ordering in from one of the many wonderful nearby restaurants, a meal can be enjoyed on the amazing Saarinen rosewood dining table and very comfortable classic original Saarinen dining chairs, under the beautiful warm, modern lighting that can be doubled as a piece of art.

The main bedroom is in the rear of the townhouse, overlooking the garden, which makes for a totally peaceful night's sleep. There is a Tempur-Pedic queen size mattress, which sits on top of the beautiful solid maple bed. The Tempur-Pedic mattress is perhaps the best mattress available and will most certainly provide you with a therapeutic and rejuvenating night's sleep. Just what is needed in a home away from home!

The second bedroom, which is also located in the rear of the house, has a sofa bed made in Denmark that turns into a very comfortable bed between a queen and king size and there is a solid walnut dresser. ***Update: We have now added a queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress to the second bedroom as well. The mattress is currently sitting nicely on top of the opened up orange sofa bed. New photos will be added soon.***

For the fifth and sixth guests, the sectional sofa can be used, as it splits into two pieces and forms a queen size bed when facing the two pieces towards each other. Alternatively, there is a queen size air mattress with memory foam top.

We have a pack 'n play (playard) for baby, available upon request.

The bathroom features exquisite floor to ceiling carrara marble tile. There is also an amazing skylight above, which fills the bathroom with natural light all day. The shower is very soothing and therapeutic, with a 10-inch rain showerhead and 6 shower jets, which relax and massage. There is also solid walnut cabinetry and a very large wall mirror.

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, which will help you with your planning, as it 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 very 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!

Perfect, absolutely perfect

The apartment is lovely, stylish, spacious, extremely clean. The location is great - on a well-kept block, very close to 2 subway lines, in a terrific neighborhood. Could not have been better.

Austin back in Astoria

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, owners have a great eye for design. Simple, comfortable, spacious and just well done all around. This apartment is right near the subway and for any smart travelers that means easy access to Manhattan. Great breakfast spot down the street NYC Bagels, all the other amazing food that Astoria is renowned for and good nightlife. Checking in was simple, Jason and Jessica answered their phones every single time I called (which helps relax you when coming to the big city) and the apartment overall was just great!

Fabulous property, would go back anyday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment over Christmas and new years and had an amazing time. We stayed with two of our friends and loved every minute.

The apartment was well looked after, spacious and had a "homely" feel. The bedrooms are good sizes and there was plenty of space for our things. It was very cold when we arrived however, the apartment was very warm ... sometimes too warm for us England folk but Jessica and Jason adjusted it for us within hours of asking.

The location of the apartment is brilliant. Only a two minute walk to the subway and situated within a variety of restaurants and shops etc. We visited the Ravenshead pub on a number of occasions (loved it!), the Queens Kickshaw and MexiBBQ. All were brilliant! Keyfoods was a great place to get all of our groceries from.

The neighbourhood feels safe and we would have no hesitation in going back to this apartment when visiting NY again.

Thank you Jessica and Jason for a lovely stay :) Xxx

Great location, apartment - would go back!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious with great amenities - the owner was so nice, accommodating, and helpful with suggestions. It is very close to the subway--that made it all worth it. The neighborhood was safe and everything we needed was nearby - sports bars, stores, food, organic markets. We really enjoyed our stay - we were in a great location, a wonderful apartment, and so close to Manhattan by subway. Also, so many restaurants deliver - the owner provided a list of nearby places which was so helpful. The bed and shower are way above anything i have had at a hotel too, so overall, it's a great place to stay. Highly recommended!

Great Apartment & Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean, spacious apartment in a safe neighborhood that is a fun mix of traditional and trendy. Who knew this neighborhood would have such great restaurants! We had quick access to the US Open Tennis Tournament and also to Manhattan for all the tourist activities. Jessica and Jason are lovely and helpful. We have already recommended this property to our friends traveling to NYC and look forward to staying again. Thank you!

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.
