30-40 min to Manhattan, including a 8 min walk to the nearest metro station woodhaven Blvd (R/M). The trick is to switch to express trains E/F after 3 stops at Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Ave to all major stations in Manhattan. This is a big beautiful traditional American house in a residential area, different restaurants and groceries with walking distance, convenient and reasonably priced, very safe too.
Only for easygoing travelers who are quiet walking and closing doors, and with no expectations for a high end hotel with service. Please understand that this a house where people live in everyday with no maid, so it's unlikely to have everything spotless clean 24/7, if a few hairs on the bathroom floor or bags of food in the kitchen is too much for you please look somewhere else. This huge room is decorated with a beautiful bed. It has big windows so lots of sunshine in the afternoon. The size of the room makes sure you'll have enough space even with lots of luggage. My house is located in a beautiful neighborhood, there are many nice houses and green plants here, and it's quiet and always safe. There are authentic Russian, Latino restaurants within minutes walk. A fruit stand at the exit of the Woodhaven station and many groceries with large selections and good price within 10 min walk on your way to 63rd drive station which is only 15 min walk, you'll not lack good food and fruit and pay much less than in Manhattan. Wine store and laundry 3 min walk, CVS pharmacy 2 min walk, Queens' largest shopping mall 10 min walk. House rules: Please search how to get here by yourself instead of asking me, I can only give you the info from g00gle map. You can easily get any info online, I'm not a hotel front desk whose job to answer your questions 24/7, but I'm happy to help if you can't find something online. Wear slippers instead of walking barefoot at home, footsteps can be loud on the hard wood floor even with socks. There are people who live on 2/F and in the basement, so sleepers between 11pm and 10am is a MUST. If you don't plan to wear slippers then don't book the room. Keep quiet between 11pm and 10am, walk slowly and quietly, gently close the doors, put down the toilet seat, don't set your alarm audible on the whole floor. No heavy cooking allowed. Wash the everything you use within 24 hours, dump the food residue in the sink to the trash can (most guests who cooked left something dirty here or there so I prefer if you don't cook unless you can clean everything THOROUGHLY otherwise you just create more work for me). This kitchen is used daily, and if you find dishes in the sink or bags of food out there too untidy then my house isn't for you. Kitchen shouldn't be your reason for complaint in the rating, it's not included in the listing and I only let you in as a gesture of hospitality. Take your trash outside if you have more than one bag, there are regular trash and recycles just outside the front door. Maximize your shower time to 20 min, others need to use the bathroom too. Please keep in mind that this is not a hotel, if you stay you need to respect the house rules.
