Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Long Island City - Ultra Modern Garden Apartment

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

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

This beautiful, modern, tastefully designed, one-bedroom garden apartment is located in Astoria, New York City. There are high quality, ultra modern, and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures throughout the apartment. At about 750 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse. There is also access to the garden.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen have an open-plan design. In the living room, there is a comfortable, modern sectional sofa and classic Saarinen lounge chair as well as a large flat-screen television with satellite tv atop an Eames shelving unit.

The beautiful modern kitchen is equipped with quality appliances and gadgets. Whether cooking a feast, preparing a simple meal, or ordering from one of the many wonderful nearby restaurants, there is the large dining table and classic Eames dining chairs where to enjoy a meal.

The spacious bedroom has a king size bed. The king size mattress is Tempur-Pedic, which provides a very therapeutic, rejuvenating rest. The mattress is atop a walnut bed with marble bedside tables and lantern-like lamps. There is also a large modern wardrobe and mid-century modern bench with pillows. The ceiling lighting is also mid-century modern.

For sleeping accommodations for the third and fourth 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, we have available a high quality queen size air mattress with a memory foam top.

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

The large spa-style bathroom has a soothing, therapeutic shower area, which includes a 10-inch rain showerhead and 6 shower jets. The bathroom also has beautiful zebrano wood cabinetry, a large mirror, and other attractive fixtures.

The door in the kitchen opens up to the large garden. This is a special treat -- to have an outdoor space in the city! In the garden, you will find a dining table, chairs, 2 lounge chairs, and umbrella. The garden is a nice place where to lounge with a morning coffee before a busy day or relax after spending the day in the high-energy city. Depending on the season, the garden has some flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruit.

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 wonderful space that is 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!

Great location, easy access, awesome food joints around.

  • 5 of 5

This place was really cute, clean and spacious. My partner and I got the week long unlimited ride subway pass, since the apartment was super close to the subway. We went everywhere with that thing! Coming back to the apartment was nice and relaxing, the couch was really comfy, the bed was a little soft for my liking but I also like an insanely firm bed. We felt safe in the area, and there is a Rite Aid down the street if you need anything super late at night it's there. We walked to breakfast most mornings, New York City Bagel & Coffee House, Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company, Sanfords all within a mile. The M and R located right around the corner get you to Manhattan in a few stops. We will definitely be coming back back to NY and would stay here again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after 6 days in Astoria. The apartment was absolutley perfect for us and can thoroughly recommend it. Being a minute's walk from Steinway Station makes Manhattan very easily accessible, takes about 10 minutes, but staying around Astoria can also be recommended. There is a vast number of very good restaurants within walking distance from the apartment. The apartment is equipped to a very high standard with a large kitchen so preparing dinners at home is also very easy.

The weather during our stay was extremely hot, 40 degrees C (!) however the apartment remained cool throughout and sleeping on the very comfortable Tempur mattress was never a problem.

Having family leaving nearby in Astoria I'm sure we shall be looking forward to our next stay at the apartment.

Thanks foor everything, Jessica.

A Lovely Experience

  • 5 of 5

Jessica was very responsive leading up to our day of arrival. She allowed us to check in about an hour early, which we appreciated. We did not get the chance to meet her or Jason during the week we stayed there, but check-in and check-out still went smoothly and we have no complaints. This was a cute little apartment that was clean and well-stocked. It is located extremely close to the subway and several restaurants, bars, and stores. I chose this location because I thought it would be a nice, quiet place to relax after spending our days in Manhattan, and that's exactly what it was. I would absolutely stay here again or recommend it to anyone visiting NYC.

Wonderful apartment in Long Island City

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be closer to our son, who lives in Queens, in addition to saving money on hotels in Manhattan. The apartment is very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed having our morning coffee sitting in the back yard. Being so close to a subway stop is a huge plus! We absolutely would stay there again.

Clean and accessible!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I really enjoyed our time at this property. A beautiful home. Very well-stocked kitchen. Amazing finishes to the home. He was especially impressed with all the Hansgrohe.

The property is just a block and a half away from Steinway Station and really easy to get to Manhattan. We stayed here for about a week and had a great time. The owner, Jessica, is friendly and professional. She is very thorough and gave us recommendations on places to eat and shop close by.

I would highly recommend staying here.

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.
