|Property type||Private room|
|Acceptance rate||< 50%|

The apartment is located in Astoria, Queens, an area that is popular not only due to its proximity to Manhattan (20 minutes to the Upper East Side section of Manhattan, 30 minutes to Midtown/Times Square), but is also popular for its ethnic diversity. It is a ten minute walk from the subway to my apartment. There are also two buses that can take you to the subway in 5 minutes. This apartment would be shared between you and me, but no one else.
Astoria is now officially one of the hottest neighborhoods in NYC. (Williamsburg?...what's Williamsburg? ;-) And Queens (the borough of NYC where Astoria is located) was voted the #1 place to visit in 2015, by Lonely Planet!
Please note that I have TWO cats.
Here's what you can expect if you stay with me:
- a Queen size bed
- private bedroom with a view of planes descending to La
- warm flannel bedsheets in the Winter, and 100% cotton,
high thread count bedsheets in the Summer
- big fluffy bath towels
- the apartment is kept very clean and has a modern,
- many excellent coffeeshops and restaurants nearby (Greek, Japanese, Italian, Australian, Egyptian....)
- self-serve breakfast consisting of organic breads and
cereals, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, juices, organic milk,
soy milk, rice milk, whole coffee beans to grind daily, etc.
- I have a high-speed blender and will often offer you fresh juice
and/or vegetable drinks, smoothies, or fresh almond
I love hosting visitors (especially first-time visitors to New York) and helping them figure out what to do, what to see, and the best way to accomplish all of this while they are in NYC. I am here to help you with whatever you need while here in NYC. At the same time, I am always respectful of my guests' need for space and privacy. I take my cues from my guests. If they want to be sociable with me, great! If not, that's fine too!
Thanks for reading, and please don't hesitate to ask any other questions!
House rulesKeep in mind that I am sharing my small, private home with you! ;-)
1) Please have a profile that says more than 'I live in Munich, Germany' for example. I want to know 'who' you are.
2) Please have a clear photo of your face (no sunglasses, no hats, no faraway photos).
3) Please provide detail on the purpose of your visit and communicate in such a way that demonstrates that you have social skills. ;-)
I'm sorry to have to indicate such specific details, but Wimdu has told me that if I do not do so, I will be penalized for every guest I do not accept into my home. (They have very rigid rules!)
Remember, I am sharing my small, private apartment/home with my guests As a single female, I therefore MUST be very particular and careful about who I accept into my home. We all want to enjoy the experience! Thanks for understanding.

Reviews of this property
Lynn is een hartelijke en attente gastvrouw; plezierig in de omgang die je de ruimte geeft in haar eigen appartement. Prima kamer met goed bed in Queens (half uur met de subway tot Central Park). Wel goed om je te realiseren dat je via haar woon/slaapkamer toegang hebt tot de badkamer met toilet. Voor NY zeer goede prijs-kwaliteitsverhouding!
Sejour merveilleux !
Lynn est une hôte charmante, serviable et intéressante.
Nous nous sommes bien senties chez elle; l'appartement est nickel; il est situé dans un quartier grec très sympa; Astoria dans le queens, bien desservi par le métro.
Je recommande vivement ce logement.
Lynn was a great host. She gave us a lot of tips, especialy at the first day when we were walking through the surroundings with her and had a diner in one of the greek restaurants.
Also, the room was very nice - clean, quiet and with a comfortable bed. We absolutly recommend staying with her.
Lynn was a perfect host and gave us good hints for our first visit to New York City. We really enjoyed our stay at her home. Thank you, Lynn!

Nobody is perfect, but when it comes to guest hosting Lynn is pretty close! Name any category in gest hosting and she gets a five star rating. For us this was the best accomodation in NYC we could get. Thank you, Lynn.
lynn at it was great, she is very helpful and will help you with all where you no longer has. I can only say positive about this, a very adorable human being. the apartment just a dream, everything was very, very clean and well maintained and the outlook from their balcony of the madness, the look melted on the skylines only then. I was very, very comfortable with lynn and would definitely want to come back to her, and the two sweet cats were so cute. for me the most perfect trip I had jeh. THANK lynn for everything and the wonderful time we had :) :) :) :) lg claudia
bei lynn war es toll, sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und hilft dir bei allen wo du nicht weiter weist. ich kann nur positives zu Ihr sagen, ein ganz entzückender mensch. die wohnung einfach nur ein traum, alles sehr, sehr sauber und gepflegt und der ausblick von ihrem balkon der wahnsinn, der blick auf die skylines nur zum dahin schmelzen. ich habe mich sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt bei lynn und würde auf jedenfall wieder zu ihr kommen wollen, auch die zwei süssen katzen waren so niedlich. für mich der perfekteste trip den ich jeh hatte. DANKE lynn für alles und die wunderbare zeit die wir hatten :) :) :) lg claudia :)
Lynn has a Black belt in hospitality. It was so much better to be here than staying at a hotel! Very clean and pleasant rum. Lynn helped me a lot with her advices about how to get to different places and what to see and do in New York. 10 points on a 5-point scale!
