Perfect Match!

November 4, 2014

This house was the perfect match for us! We were 8 people(between 50 - 5), stayed here for 8 days and really enjoyed the nice and cozy atmosphere of the house. Everything was well maintained, very clean and very well equipped. There was enough space for everyone to gather around the big table for a family breakfast, to play board games in the evening or just to chill after a long day in this amazing city. The house is 5 min. away from the LIRR railroad station (departure twice an hour ). It takes you approximately 20 minutes to Penn Station. Next grocery store (Bayside Milk farm, very good, fresh food), 10 - 15 min to walk, next bakery 5 min. to walk, all restaurants and shops are very close. We really felt at home and would stay there anytime again.

We stayed there for 6 days I felt pretty safe because there's a police station right down the straight everything is pretty much local. Shopping centers are 30mins away which is pretty cool. The rooms look just like what you see on the picture everything was legit and I'll visit again one day :) **5 stars**

exactly what we wanted

May 5, 2014

we booked apt B for a girls trip to the city. our ages ranged from early 30's to our moms approx 60's. the apt is quite spacious-especially when compared to a hotel for multiple people. it can easily accommodate 8 and the two full bathrooms were very much appreciated. FYI the third bedroom is immediately across from the kitchen with a privacy curtain that wraps around the space. however, we all went to bed around the same time so noise was never an issue. while we were there another group was in the apt upstairs from us. we only noticed because we could hear luggage carted back and forth. that was the only instance where we could hear them. there was plenty of closet & seating space for the four of us. there is a full kitchen available (again, something you won’t find in a hotel room). the apt was very clean and there was plenty of linens for our whole stay. a few things about woodside, it is a culturally diverse older neighborhood in the Queens borough. there were many restaurants, markets, pharmacies and other shops in the neighborhood that we spent our first afternoon wandering around. the apt is in a quiet residential neighborhood that always felt safe. we would come and go from the apt at different hours of the day and always felt comfortable. it is not a very touristy area, which we appreciated after spending the day at Times Square or Central Park. we were able to buy a few things from the market for breakfast without feeling like we were fleeced. the apt is approx 5 blocks from the 7 train which was close enough without the noise & traffic. the 7 train runs constantly and we never waited more than 5 minutes. the express train comes in handy when trying to get to the city but realistically, i feel that it took more than 10 minutes to arrive. overall, we had a great time in NYC and we definitely saved money by staying at the apt. if you want tourist by day but quiet and relaxing at night, this is the perfect place for your group. i would come back to the woodside apt in a heartbeat! thanks to christina for responding to emails and keeping us current as our travel date neared.

The area is very family-oriented and safe. We were very pleased about how close to the subway it is - we enjoyed the brief walks to the subway. Apartment D is exactly as in the photos and very clean and nice. Only downside was the noise those above us were making early in the morning. Other than that, this is a great place, and we would stay here again.

Great location!

January 3, 2013

Apartment was in a great location. Walking distance to many of our favorite places ... Central Park, natural history museums, and many restaurants. It was just a short walk to the subway for any other attractions. Apartment was clean and well maintained. The host was courteous and responded very promptly we had any questions. Would definately stay again.

Summer vacation in Woodside

July 24, 2012

My group and I had stayed in Apartment C in Woodside and everything looked just like the pictures provided. The entire apartment was very nice and clean and was provided with plenty of towels, clean bedsheets, a whole kitchen to cook in with cups, plates, bowls, etc. and a fridge to store food and drinks in. Christina was also able to accomodate the times we needed to check in and check out. We will definitely consider these properties again and recommend the apartments to our friends and families as they were close to subways and many restaurants. Christina, you were so hospitable and our stay was very pleasant, thank you so much!

Awesome place

December 26, 2011

My two friends and I stayed here Dec 2011 for three days. We each had our own bedroom. We felt safe in the neighborhood. The metro is only a short walk away. Easy access to get a cab if you need one. The apartment is just like the pictures show you. There are several Irish restaurants and pubs near by, grocery store, bakery, fast food and drug store. Everything you need is five minutes away. The place is well kept and very clean. We will definitely stay there again. I Would recommend this place to all. Christine was so wonderful to deal with. Looking forward to going back soon. Lynn

can you say New York City

Our stay was wonderful. It was all that we could imagine. The apartment was nice & comfortable. Towels & clean linen was also supplied. We were in a good safe location within walking distance of many shops & restaraunts. The only complaint that I have would be the parking...their is none...but I guess that's just New York. Hope to stay with you again soon. Thank you

Great place for a large group

July 4, 2011

We were pleansantly surprised by the size of this apartment. There were 10 of us and we fit comfortably in the apt. Woodside is actually in Queens which was a bit confusing at first trying to get there from the airport but once we got there, everything was great. Grace and Christina were very nice and accommodating and allowed us a place to keep our luggage pending our ability to check in. Also, communication was excellent and we received immediate responses to any questions or concerns we had. The apt. was fully equipped and well maintained and clean. We also had the use of a washer and dryer! Overall, this was a great experience and we truly appreciate the effort Grace made to make us feel welcome and enjoy our NYC experience.

Short Distance to Uptown NYC - very nice apartment

June 17, 2011

Although it is almost too small for 5 people, we had a very nice stay in this apartment and I would recommend it. The aparment provides sleeping facilities for 5 persons: small bedroom with 1 Queen sized bed, living room with 1 Queen sized sofa and 1 single sized sofa. But there were chairs and dishes for 4 people only. A/C in living and bedroom. Bath and kitchen are small and without windows. However - everything was clean and we felt comfortable. The apartment is located on Lexington Ave - it's getting busy/noisy outside in the evening, but we did not care too much about it. There is no elevator in this building and the stairway is quite small for huge luggage, but it fits somehow.

Loved It!

Our stay at Grace and Tony's townhome was great. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room. The place was well kept and clean, and the neighborhood was great. It was very quiet and there was access to restaurants and stores. The subway was a piece of cake thanks to their helpful packet of information. If we ever go back to New York, I would definitely want to stay here again.

Grace and Tony are great!

July 4, 2010

The property is as written in the review. On a quite neighborhood street close to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee houses, etc. all within a short walk. Train station is a 10 minute walk from the apt. The apt. was clean and has plenty of sleeping, modern kitchen and spices to get you going if your plans warrent cooking. Nice TV and internet availability. More so than anything however was the assistance Grace and Tony provided. Our trip back to the states from oversees was anything but normal and easy. These two kind people went the extra distance to ensure our short stay in NYC ended on a positive note. I would stay again and I would not hesitate to contact either one of them should the need arise.

Great place for families

May 30, 2010

Our family of six stayed in apt. C and it was perfect for us. We saved a lot of money by renting this place and it was close to the subway so we easily could go to all the places we wanted to go. It's a nice quiet neighborhood and grocery stores are nearby for buying food and things needed. We also appreciated the washer/dryer so we could pack light. The apt. has WI-FI and cable tv so our kids were happy! We would highly recommend this place. Owners were available when needed. Nice couple.

This rental property is in a super clean and nice condition. Especially, the owners are very kind thoughtful and friendly. After the rental confirmation, they emailed us the directions, instruction and recommendations around that location, that help us a lot to get around places. Any requests that we had been fulfilled efficiently.

Enjoyable stay, great value

November 12, 2009

We really enjoyed our stay in Woodside, it was great to be based in a local area, away from the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan, yet we could be in Times Sq or Grand Central Station (with easy changes to other main subway lines) within 20-25 mins of leaving the apartment, and pick up groceries or a takeaway on the way home. Also enjoyed a couple of great local restaurants (both in the Rough Guide). The apartment was spacious and comfortable, plenty of room for 6 adults, with a well equipped kitchen and enough room to sprawl in front of the TV. Don't be put off by the slightly run down look of the area (more Tooting than Wimbledon) - it's fine, safe and friendly.

New York Hotels Never Again

September 17, 2009

We rented a one bedroom apt. in Upper East Manhattan. Our location was excellent, the subway was minutes away. I've decided this is the way to go,I will never stay in a hotel again in the city of NY they are way over priced. Thanks! we had a wonderful time:)

A great stay

If you are looking for a larger property then I would highly recommend this townhouse, the owners were very helpful leading up to our stay and on arrival the property presented very well. Super Mike who lives onsite was very helpful and easy to contact. The property was about 10 mins sub ride into Time Sqaure and was easy to do. If you want to get out of the rat race of the center of New york then stay here, close to all shops, pubs, coffee shops etc.

Our stay was great. The space was quiet, well-equipped, nicely furnished, and above all, and most appreciated...impeccably clean. Super-Mike, as I believe he said his name was, helped us as he saw us rolling our luggage up the street well after midnight. The evening was nice and the community members were out enjoying the evening, but doing it quietly. I couldn't have asked for a better setup for my family. Thanks also to the owners who answered my many questions about how to get there from Islip.

At first I was not sure if my party of 7 including myself would like to stay in Woodside, after speaking with Christina I was convinced yet uneasy. Well no need to worry, Christina was an amazing, thoughtful and caring. The apartment was clean with plenty of ammenities and clutter free. Located very close to the subway, a dinner, stores, pubs, etc... I highly recommend this apartment to anyone interested in a GREAT hassel-free place. Thank you Christina & Danny, you made our stay a pleasure. I will highly recommend you to everyone I know. Cheers, Maribel Fernandez-Dillon Miami, FL 954-931-4555

to stay to the centre like most people then while
looking for hotels we came across this gem in
woodside - great transport links 5 minute walk to
woodside station for train or subway. 15 minutes
from JFK by car and the airtrain goes from the
station. if you want a true feeling of NYC, its people
and suburbs this place is great. always felt safe
anytime of day. the property was exactly as

we had the most fantastic time in NYC and the apartment was brilliant. all the family loved Woodside - it is such a lovely mix of all sorts. we felt so safe as we walked around the place. the restaurants were wonderful - we ate in four different places in woodside and all of them provided excellent service and food. however, it was the great apartment that really made the difference and we cannot praise enough the incredible help and service that Grace and Tony provided. we would love to go back and stop there again and we will give it a huge recommendation to our friends. to Grace and Tony - Cheers!

Exceaded all our expectations. Was closer to everything than we had thought (via.. subways) wich are very user friendly to those who have not used them before. Very close to the best restaraunt I have ever ate at , a diamond in the rough very much how I would describe this place. Very clean and well maintained would highly recomend this place. we will be going back as much as possible. Fell in love with the place, and maid some new friends for life.
