About the property

1 Bedroom, Queen Tempur-Pedic Bed, Extra Queen Bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Modern Garden Apartment in NYC is a 1-bedroom apartment located in Astoria, New York City. It has direct access to the garden. The apartment is only a 1 minute walk to the subway station, as it is located just around the corner. From there, it only takes 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by subway.

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

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, and umbrella. It is a very special treat to have an outdoor space in the city! The garden is a wonderful space where to lounge with a morning coffee and to relax after a long and busy day around the high-energy city. Depending on the season, the garden has flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruit.

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.

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

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is a gem in NYC. Located on a great, safe street in a good Queens location, with subway a 2-minute walk away and direct service to Manhattan. The apartment was even better than the photos! It was spotless, quiet, and felt welcoming right away. Jason, the owner, was amazingly accommodating and very accessible. I highly recommend this place, and it will definitely be the first place I (we) check out on our next visit to NYC. Thank you!

Clean, tidy basement apt close to subway and some yummy food.

  • 4 of 5

My college girlfriend and I were in town to see a show my son was in. Needed to get to Times Square area easily and this apt is very close to the M train that takes you there. There are some steep stairs going down to the apt. We asked for more bath linens and Jessica provided them. The kitchen is well stocked and Jessica’s info bookabout the area is very thorough. If you need anything not provided, there’s a Dollar Tree around the corner!

Nice little place for staying a short period in NYC

  • 4 of 5

the apartment is a little basement room with exit to a garden area. The garden exit are the only windows available.

There can be a little hot but the ap has a air conditioner which is noisy but works ok.

The people in the ap upstairs makes a lot of noise walking up and down in the morning.

The sleeping arrangements were great, the WiFi works perfectly and the shower was wonderful.

The place has just been cleaned when we entered.

All in all a very nice place if you can live with the minor shortcomings

Great location, very clean, was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very convenient for those visiting in Astoria or Manhattan. Its location is great, being 1 1/2 blocks from subway, and near many shops and restaurants a block away. It is a bit bigger than we expected based on pictures. Everything is as described. There is a separate bedroom with queen-sized bed, separate good-sized private bathroom, and large kitchen/living area. There is a center food prep island and two couches in that area, and just enough room to bring in a queen-sized mattress from the hallway if needed. The kitchen/living area has a door that opens out back to the patio/garden area. We found the place to be very clean, comfortable, well-stocked with kitchen necessities. The area seemed completely safe to us, and the street is quiet at night (no major city noise interrupted sleep). Although we never met Jessica, our telephone contacts were friendly and she was helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed our two-night stay at this apartment, and we hope we may have the opportunity to stay here again.

Linda & Paul - stayed 1 week Oct 2017

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, very clean, very comfortable bed, great shower and fresh clean towels supplied! Everything you need for your holiday accommodation.

Excellent information booklet with everything you need to know supplied by the owners in the apartment too.

Around the corner from Steinway Station with 2 lines direct into Manhattan just a few stops away. Such easy access to Manhattan but also far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of it when need to and want a quiet day or so! So its a win win location!!

Astoria itself is a lovey safe area also, just around the corner from some gems of bars and restaurants.

Will definitely return to this apartment if/when we return to New York.

Clean with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Astoria. The closest subway station is only about a half-block away. So from the apartment to standing in Times Square is about 30 minutes. But aside from the easy access to Manhattan, Astoria itself is an enjoyable place. Our hostess provided a very detailed list of restaurants that would suit any culinary whim all within walking distance. We chose a BBQ place and had a wonderful time both at the restaurant and walking through the neighborhood which always felt safe. Also the Museum of Moving Pictures which is also walking distance had a wonderful exhibit on Jim Henson. I wish I had more time to see more of it.

The pictures of the apartment were accurate. Everything was very clean. The bed was comfortable. There were plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils. It was a very comfortable space.

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.
