Quaint and comfortable property with lots of room!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for when I was in the area with family to attend several vineyard tours in celebration of my sister getting married. The property was very appealing on the outside, as well as spacious, comfortable and well laid out on the inside. The property manager was extremely nice and accommodating. From the moment we met her and were let into the house we felt extremely welcome and at home. She provided me with her cell phone number and told me to contact her if we needed anything at all. When one of our fuses blew close to 8 in the evening she answered the phone on the first ring and within 10 minutes she had someone at the house to fix it! The house was well stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, pots, pans, trash bags, and towels. Not to mention that each room had its own AC unit which was ideal considering it can get very hot at night. The bed linens were comfortable and clean as well. I have stayed in a few rental properties and my experience at this one has so far been the best! I would definitely rent this property again if I was down in the area. I highly recommend this if your are looking for a property in that area and you are looking to accommodate a large number of people!

It's on a nice quite street with lots of cool food and drinking spots within walking distance and the metro is close by which was also a plus. Management was also very responsive and helped with any questions we had. Thanks!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

First time renting in New York and this was a great location. Close to LaGuardia and the Subway station. Rented it for 6 and only ended up with 4 people going so we had plenty of room. It would be a great deal if you have a lot of people. Little pricey for the 4 of us. Kunga was very responsive as was his wife. Wiring needs some work and let Kunga now. Beds were comfortable.

Alright

  • 3 of 5

The owner and the property manager were not very responsive in regards to getting the 2nd floor bathroom fixed. The flush wasn't working, the shower and the tub were blocked. We used only 3rd floor bathroom throughout our 7 day stay.

The good, The Bad, and The Ugly!

  • 3 of 5

Let me start by saying we truly enjoyed our trip! There were a total of 10 of us that traveled to the city for my daughters 16th birthday; our party included 8 adults and 2 teens. Prior to our trip one traveler backed out; I contacted the owner and they so generously refunded the fees associated with the extra traveler. A week before our arrival I contacted the owner and they gave me the contact information for the property manager and stated that upon arrival to LGA to contact the manager and he would meet us at the house to let us in and show us around. Once our plane landed we contacted him and as promised he and his wife were there when we reached the house. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood and we felt very safe even walking at night and coming home late after a night in the city. We utilized both the Q32 and Q33 buses near the house and the subway station on Roosevelt. We traveled both early morning and late night (after midnight on one day) and never had any concern for our safety in this neighborhood. It would take us on average 25 - 30 minutes to travel from the house into Manhattan.

Why the 3 star review?

Accommodations-

VRBO states bedroom 5 has 2 bunk beds but it does not say SMALL CHILDREN ONLY. none of our party were couples therefore we wanted EACH traveler to have a bed. The mattresses (2" foam pads) on the bunks leave much to be desired. I contacted the manager but he assured me that room was for small children. We traveled to the local target and bought $150 in twin air mattresses to accommodate our party.

Cleanliness-

The beds and linens were clean but the bedding didn't match. There were 10 of us there for 6 days they left us 10 towels and NO WASH CLOTHES! VRBO amenities list access to the washer and dryer but the property manager said it wasn't included. The kitchen and bathrooms were gross ie. grease residue on the stove; mildew on the shower curtains. There were NO sight of bugs or insects in the house.

Maintenance-

The toilet on the second floor stayed backed up and we had to plunge it all week. On Tuesday the manager worked on the toilet but it was still not working properly when we got home. We came in after midnight that night and the manager left all of the curtains open exposing our computers, iPads, and other valuables. He also turned all the window units off in the house and it was 88 degrees inside. We couldn't go to sleep until the house cooled off several hours later.

Owner's Response: Carrie, We greatly appreciate your feedback. Because of your feedback we have made some changes. We have changed the cleaning company and I have talked to the property manager to be extremely careful in the future. Also we have a lot of towels and wash cloths that are easily accessible in the basement. The washer and dryer are also in the basement and we provide access to the basement as and when requested. Thank you very much.
