    Téresa est une personne des plus adorable que j'ai rencontrer une douceur et une gentillesse inimaginable . Très strict sur les règles de sa maison donc suivez les et tout ce passera bien. Si vous avez des questions elle vous renseignera avec plaisir . Le métro est à 10 minute maximum et ensuite vous êtes a 20mn de Manhattan environ.
    C'est une maison calme je me suis tellement bien reposer c'était vraiment sympa d'être la bas.
    Merci pour toute cette gentillesse Téresa ♡♡♡♡ .
    Je reviendrais =)

    Was a good time to have Raveen at home .
    In summer time complexion of planed reconstruction of the air or under ground trains tracks in the subway system ( which I can not control )
    happens at night. His landed plain at 8.30 pm at J.F.K and his decided use of Public transportation from J.F.K was the antecedent of his arrival at home very late at knight . May be this made him uncomfortable on his stay . Sorry Raveen .

    Room was a little claustrophobic, no windows and dark. We were feeling as if we were watched all the time. Used the restroom at 5.00am and hosts were up keeping an eye on us. We were told we could only have toast at breakfast, so we went to the local café. They seemed to trust us more by the end of our stay, but their English was very limited. Our room was situated between mother on one side and daughter on the other, certainly did not feel comfortable .Saying that, they seemed very nice people but they were the only members of the family we ever saw. It was very clean, however, and is fine if you just want somewhere to sleep, but watch out for the cockroaches. Also the subway can be unreliable, especially at night, and it can take two hours to get back to the local station, travel to Manhattan takes about 50 minutes at normal service

    What a disappointment, If I could only find out before hand what kind of poor souls I am letting into my home, I will save lots of aggravation.
    In the information posted on the page it clearly says ( in the price are included,light breakfast and WI-FI which many Hotels even in London does not provide this service )
    I offer slices of fresh bread that they can toast if they wish, fresh butter, marmalade , fresh milk, coffee, tea or chocolate.
    I have no idea what this people expected for that price.
    In the $45.00 dollars I offer a clean and. safe home to arrive to.
    A clean and comfortable bedroom. with clean sheets, ceiling fan,
    and a clean bathroom, with plenty of hot water. ( Not like many places in England specially in Whales where you have to feed coins to a gas heater to have hot water ). The exact picture of the room is posted on the site. Two beds, night table, dresser, leather sofa, closet , plenty of space to move around and space for the luggage's. Something you do not find in many expensive hotels in Europe and to comment that the bedroom was located in between another 2 bedrooms, well, maybe the place this people comes from they have only 1 bedroom in their home or their bedroom is located next to the animal quarters in the barn of the farm. Not in New York City, and less in my 3 floors house, with 5 bathrooms, and 10 bedrooms.
    You can actually see that it is the first time you got out of your neighborhood , Commenting that the transportation is bad because it takes 2 hours , in New York slows down after 10 pm due to repairs and less quantity transients. Maybe you got lost and have no idea what to do.
    About the family members being not present.
    Maybe next time my grand children will come from their Universities in Kansas and Connecticut to meet Mr Roy at his arrival or maybe my son and his wife will not go to work and stay at home to chat with Mr: Roy and go to sleep at 1 am so they can see Mr: Roy in his way back from Manhattan
    I hope next time you save some little money to go traveling, leave behind your malice and enjoy your life.
    You only stay here for 4 days leaving around 9 am and arriving after 10 pm, people has a life ...........Mr:Roy and one more thing , maybe you need some help if you think that people are watching you.....as you mention......

    I have just got home safely, after my 2 week stay in New York City with Teresa and her lovely family.

    I had a great time there in NYC and, without a doubt, I met some weird, wonderful and very interesting people there. I learnt so much about the place and it's history, the good and bad, which was awesome!

    Teresa's house is kept clean and I didn't have a problem with anything at all. I had a nice hot shower every morning and had a light breakfast and coffee in the kitchen afterwards. It's a relaxed and stress free household, so it was all good.

    There are buses and the Subway literally just around the corner, so there is no issue with travel problems or getting lost trying to find them. *As the Subway station, Fresh Pond Road (on the 'M' line), is the 2nd stop from the end of the line, you are guaranteed a seat every time you head towards the centre of New York every Day!

    There are all the shops, restaurants, post office and laundromats etc, that you will ever need very nearby too, which is fantastic. Everything is on Teresa's doorstep, so to speak.

    I'm so glad that I chose Teresa to stay with and that she accepted me as a guest, as with all the advice I was given by her and her family, to help me get around and where to visit etc, it really made my fortnight stay a very pleasant one indeed and one that I will always remember with a smile.

    Thank you Teresa.
    God Bless you and your family!
    James. :-)

    The location is very safe and convinient. The dining and shower room are a little bit darty.
    If you want to trip reasonably, it will be one of the best choice.

    Some people expects that every single home in the USA will look like the mansions you see in Hollywood movies. The reality is that in a normal home people cooks daily and it is normal to see a bit messy the kitchen while doing this. About the bathroom I expect for the guest to keep it clean as they saw it when they first arrive. I am sorry you feel that way but in reality my 3 floors home with 5 bathrooms it is and always will be as the other positive 88 reviews mention. The comment about the super clean room you stay in. it is messing in your review. !!!!!!

    Regards
    Maria Teresa
