Holiday Rental House
Ever imagine living in a Chalet 10 minutes from Center of Manhattan. No one will believe your travel stories.

You will not believe your eyes when you step in to this historic house just steps from Midtown Manhattan. Enjoy the peace & tranquility of a country home right in the middle of the fastest City in the world. Situated just one stop from Manhattan in Dutch Kills, Long Island City, sits a lovely little house that we call The Chalet. Built in the early 20th Century, this frame house would be like an old story book cottage if it weren't so close to the city. There are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor to accommodate a large group.

You will not believe your eyes when you step in to this historic house just steps from Midtown Manhattan. Enjoy the peace & tranquility of a country home right in the middle of the fastest City in the world. Situated just one stop from Manhattan in Dutch Kills, Long Island City, sits a lovely little house that we call The Chalet. Built in the early 20th Century, this frame house would be like an old story book cottage if it weren't so close to the city. There are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor to accommodate a large group. There is also a finished basement that is perfect for pajama parties! There are accommodations for infants also, so just let us know. All of the bedrooms are on the second floor with a full bathroom to use. The main floor has a full kitchen with a family size refrigerator. So if you plan on staying for a while, fill up the fridge. There is a dining table that can easily accommodate a large group (six chairs, but can be extended to hold 10). The living room is comfy and cozy and you will always have lots of natural light beaming in through the windows. If you need another room, there is another one on the main floor. It has many options for its use, so let us know and we can prepare it for you. There is a garden in the front where you can sit under the apple tree and feel safe and comfortable all night long. Right in front of our gate is the bike path to cross over into Manhattan so if you like to ride bikes, we have them for you, just let us know how many. Our block is quiet and you will never be bothered by traffic going by. Our Cottage is set back 75 feet from the curb and feels so secluded. If you like to entertain you will have no problem doing it at The Cottage or in the Garden. You can BBQ or relax next to the chiminea. This house is not our primary residence so rest assure, the house is all yours while you stay. AMENITIES: - Chef's Stainless Steele Appliances - Microwave - Coffee Maker - Pots, pans, plates, glasses, all kitchenware - Dishwasher - Washer/dryer - Free high speed WiFi - Smart TV - Cable 240+ channels - Fresh, fluffy towels - Fresh, crisp linen - Central Air conditioning - Central Heat - Iron - Ironing Board Guest Access You will have access to the Entire House, all three levels of the house, the outdoor garden and the driveway where you can park a car or a van. There is also a finished basement that is perfect for pajama parties! Interaction with Guests We are very easy going and we leave the interaction up to you. We like to make ourselves available but we have found that most New York visitors have very specific interests and reasons for coming to the greatest city in the world and we want to give you the freedom to explore and make this city your own. The Neighborhood This area is called Dutch Kills, a small neighborhood right in between Astoria and Long Island City, two very popular destinations for cafes and restaurants. So the house is within walking distance (as short as 5 minutes) to local restaurants and bars. We also have 3 very famous galleries within walking distance, Fisher Landau Center for Art, Flux Factory and PS1, which is part of the Modern Museum of Art (MoMa). Since this area is so close to Queensboro Bridge, the main transportation hub of Queens, this has traditionally been a place for back businesses supplying Manhattan with bread, truffles, silk, etc. But over the last 10 years, artists have taken over these warehouse spaces and made them into work/live loft studios. It's a very interesting area and I think you will be very pleased. This apartment is located in Dutch Kills close to Astoria's famous and charming social life and small, independent restaurant and shopping scene. Everything is convenient and right-scaled in Astoria, Long Island City -- no big box stores in the entire area, for example. Instead hundreds of independent shops, restaurants, and services all within a block or two of walking distance. The neighborhood's historical Greek immigrant roots are evident everywhere, as well as newer arrivals from many parts of the world, but as the area has become coveted by people who work in Manhattan recently, there has also been influx of Asian, North African, and Hispanic businesses and dwellers, providing a model of diversity coupled with progressive, economic prosperity. Getting around The neighborhood Dutch Kills is very safe, only 3 blocks from the N and Q subway station, which is 2 stops from Lexington Ave in midtown Manhattan. Queens and Queensborough Plaza stations (which provide the N, Q, 7, E, M, and R trains) are also a 5 minute walk away. Or if you'd rather drive, walk or bike, the 59th Street bridge is just a few short blocks away. House Rules No smoking inside. Pets are considered on a case by case basis. Appreciate taking off street shoes inside. Copy Of ID (Passport or Drivers License) upon arrival. Any stay 5 days or under can only be booked 2 weeks before arrival date. We would like to leave as little of an impact on the environment so we appreciate if you observe NYC recycling rules, save water and conserve energy to the best of your ability. Make yourself at home and be comfortable!More

First of all, I must mention that dealing with the landlord Steffan before my arrival and during our stay was an absolute pleasure. He was helpful above and beyond and very accommodating. That said, we never actually met face to face. The personal touch, being...More
