Awesome place to stay with very kind people, quiet and easy to find. 5 Minutes walk to the subway station!
Jessica was a great host to stay with. She really helped me on my day of my arrival.
I'm thankful for that.
It was a clean and safe place to come home to after a chaotic day in New York City.
Thanks for letting me stay at your place.
Looking forward for our next meeting.
every went very well
Jessica greeted me and showed me the bedroom kitchen and bathroom
she also explained where and how to get the trains to the city and
to the Tennis stadium
she had menus from the local
restaurants which were helpful as well.
when I have to go back to NYc
I will definitely contact her again.
I extremely enjoyed the experience of staying with Jessica and her family in Forest Hills. She was welcoming, helpful, available and downright friendly. She instantly made me feel at home and gave me the freedom and independence to come and go as I pleased. The place was tidy with clean bedding and a spacious ward robe which I appreciated very much as I acquired a lot of stuff during my 30 days stay. It was a breath of fresh air when compared to staying in a hotel, which can be pretty lonely if one is staying as long as I did. To top it off, even when I knew she didn't have to, she would bring me fresh fruits and some cookies every now and then, a thing I took to heart.
Jessica was readily available to offer advice on which places to visit and how to get there. For instance, she made it easy for me to get to places like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the many museums scattered across New York. Her knowledge of the city came in very hand. It is an easy 10 minutes’ walk from her place to the subway and I was able to get to my work place in downtown Manhattan without much ado, as well as visit such places like the USTA Tennis Centre, Hempstead and Jamaica City, which had been on my agenda.
I was very pleased and touched that she even offered to arrange a taxi for me on my last day, although I had made prior arrangements. When I get back to New York and if her place is available I will not think twice to stay with her again. She was an excellent and benevolent hostess.
It was pleasure to stay
The place is good and Jessica and her husband also nice. Recommended place to stay when you visit NY
So, this was my first time in New York City 16 days, and Jassica an Dan help me a lot during my stay here. The house is nice and the room is big, it's near of bus stop and less 10 min of Forest Hills subway station, then 30 min to Manhatam. Its a safe area no noise at night. Who wants a god place to stay and nice, here is the place.
Jassica and Dan Thank you for everything
Jessica and Dan are both very friendly and great to stay with. They help whereever they can. The flat is in a nice and safe area and the connection to the city centre through subway and bus is good and fast. I really enjoyed to stay with them through my time in NY and I would highly recommend them as host family.
