About Tamara

I love traveling and am happy to welcome other fellow travelers in my home in New York City. Since I used home sharing websites as a guest in the past, now as a host I know how the guests feel when they arrive to somebody else's apartment after a long trip, or a long day of sightseeing, so I try to accommodate them as much as I can. And as of recently, I can offer a home that is environmentally friendly. Our solar panels are now generating electric energy! That is our contribution to the environment. So, help us protect the Earth and stay in our solar powered apartment, within the walking distance of the East River and the waterfront, steps from Manhattan, in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the USA.

Welcome to New York City!

Guestbook comments from the owner

compared with other options on Airbnb, Tamara offered us the overall best choice. A very comfort home for any family that want to have a pleasant short stay at NYC. During our stay, we do not need to worry about the traffic since the subway N line is just a couple of minutes away.

Cozy, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great spot and great hostess. Tamara communicated with us before, during and after our stay. We were visiting our daughter in Astoria as well as our grandson in the NICU in NYC. Tamara shared her own personal story of early birth and introduced us to her thriving child. She made our stay physically and emotionally comfortable. The apartment has everything needed. There is a grocery down the block for milk, etc. Broadwary is one block down and lined with many great restaurants. Try Sanford's. The subway is 3 blocks away to visit Manhattan. We will definitely be staying again in the near future to visit our family. Thanks Tamara!

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

The hostess, Tamara could not have been more helpful, resourceful and accommodating. I made a mistake on my reservation, but Tamara was extremely helpful and forgiving and went out of her way to assist me.

The 'apartment' is palatial, very, very clean, and in a good location. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, the bathroom is also a decent size, lovely towels, and the bed is extremely comfortable. There are two different couches in two different rooms, which is great if you have someone who is a reader, and or difficult sleeping :) .

Highly recommend!

One of the best parts of my trip to NYC

  • 5 of 5

After walking around the urban jungle all day it coming to this house feels like coming home. The owner goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and the apartment has a lot of emmedities. If I am ever back in NYC I will look this place up

Also the neighborhood is great too.

Perfect Place for NYC Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding place if you are a smart NYC tourist using Astoria as a sane place to enjoy a quiet and safe place to rest . We spent our entire time in Astoria visiting family but the subway just blocks away is a 20 minute trip to Times Square. Tamara is by far one of the best hosts we have experienced. Place is clean and quiet in a safe neighborhood close to great restaurants. We used both bed and sofa bed and they were very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need. One of our faves.
