Welcome to our bright and beautiful one-bedroom apartment which is furnished with a grumpy looking Himalayan Persian, a energetic Tuxedo cat, and a quaint view of Manhattan. Located 1 block away from the R and M subway lines, which is three stops away from Midtown Manhattan.

The space

First off, this apartment houses (1) the grumpiest-looking, stumpy Himalayan Persian cat named Bubba and (2) the most energetic little Tuxedo kitten named Jeff Goldblum. Bubba is a bit shy but also affectionate (don't let looks deceive you) and Jeff Goldblum will bond with you instantly, after running frantically around the apartment. Both Bubba and Jeff Goldblum will need daily litter box cleaning, their usual meals of the day, and fresh water when you're around, please!

The actual apartment features a full kitchen (with microwave, oven, and stove); we will provide essential spices for your cooking pleasure. Also, let us know if you prefer beer or wine and we will have some complimentary boozing waiting for you (if you're of-age, of course).

The Living Room has a flat screen TV, hooked up to an XBox that has Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant Video access. There is also a Mac that you will have guest access to (there is wireless internet included). The Living Room also features a record player with plenty of records to sort through.

The Bedroom features a full size bed, a desk, some books to read, and a full-length mirror. There is also a smaller TV which is hooked up to a Wii, which offers Netflix access as well.

Finally, we bring you to the bathroom, which has a shower and bathtub situation and fresh towels.

Guest access

This is our everyday home, so the hall closets, dressers, and some cabinets will be off limits. Anything able for you to open will be labeled for convenience!

Interaction with guests

We will be off-premise during your stay and key pick-up will be at a restaurant nearby, courtesy of Keycafe. It's about a 10-15 walk away and has delicious, delicious Venezuelan food. Seriously, DELICIOUS.

Otherwise, if we happen to still be in the city upon your arrival and departure, we can arrange for an in-person pick-up and drop-off.

While we will not be present during your stay, we are fully available via airBNB messages.

Free parking on premises

The apartment is very clean, with a homely feeling. Once inside, you'll be greeted by two gorgeous cats. Just reach out your hand and let them sniff it, and they'll immediately become your friends! Jen's apartment apartment is conveniently located close to a metro station, and there are many restaurant in the area. The bathroom is not huge, but contains all the amenities that you will need during your stay, including a batthub. Getting to Manhattan from the apartment is easy and fast. There's also free parking in front of the apartment.

Cutest apartment with the sweetest and most adorable kitties! Jen's place is in close walking distance of the subway. Very convenient location for the traveler who would like to explore Astoria, or just be within close proximity to Manhattan. In Jen's apartment you will find a great record player and vinyl collection, all the kitchen utensils and ingredients you could need, luxurious toiletry items, etc. The apartment is also super clean and feels very much like home. Recommended!

Jen's place was very close to Steinway station subway. Her apartment was situated near many restaurants (breakfast, lunch, dinner), convenience stores, and anything you would need if you are from out of town! The apartment has an extremely cozy feeling, my boyfriend and I LOVED IT! There's nothing like taking a trip somewhere but still having that cozy "at home" feeling. The place was clean, she provided us with towels for the washroom, enough toilet paper and hand paper. She let us know what we could use if we needed (ex: hair dryer, shampoo, what was in the fridge, etc.) There was a very nicely written pad with all the information we needed to know on it (ex: cats names, wifi password, emergency #'s, etc.) As a cat owner myself, Jen had no worries leaving us to take care of her 2 cats. Bubba remains in his own zone and enjoys head rubs, and Jeff on the other hand will wake you up in the morning and keep you up a bit at night... which my boyfriend and I didn't mind AT ALL, in fact we loved it! It was a pleasure staying in the apartment, everything we needed was available for us. There was 1 issue pertaining the door knob which Jen was quick to respond to regulated the issue right away. Overall, very nice stay, convenient if you want to visit New York, it's a 22 minutes ride to Manhattan! Thanks Jen, Jeff, and Bubba!

Jen was an amazing host, so accommodating and welcoming! The apartment is great, with plenty of space and great amenities. The cats make the place even better, and make it feel like a home. Highly recommend!

Jen is a very considerate host. We're appreciated that she gave us a flexible check-in and check-out time so we didn't have to find someplace to stay or hang around before going to airport. Her place is clean and comfy, it would be a perfect place for any couple to stay over during their New York's trip. If you are a cat lover, don't miss out and hesitate to stay here, you definitely will love it!!

Ma fille et moi avons passé un excellent séjour. L'appartement est facile d'accès et très confortable. La petite touche d'accueil avec la bouteille de vin et les extras ont été très appréciés!!!! De plus, c'est un merveilleux quartier avec tout à proximité. Nous y retournons avec plaisir!!!!!

Jen's place was clean and very comfortable. Both cars were super adorable and well behaved. Parking was very easy to get to, we parked right in front of the door to the building. Subway was about 3 minute walk. I would recommend to pick up the keys prior to parking at the apartment.
