From there you can also walk to Douglaston Bay, the Bayside Marina, Fort Totten and Crocheron Park, all of which are interconnected. Bicycling these areas is great fun and very beautiful. At the Bayside Marina there is a pleasant little convenience snack bar type restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating while you watch the sailors on the Bay. Please be sure to read all the details below in the FULL DETAILS section so that you can be sure this is the right place for you and your group. In addition to driveway parking, there are no parking regulations in our part of Bayside - you may park cars on the street for as long as you wish. We are on a quiet, secluded street that gets little traffic. NOTE: FOR LARGER GROUPS We have a partially finished a large lower level fourth room that holds three of our luxurious 18' thick Air Beds and two single size Air Beds. They are super comfortable, more so than most regular mattresses and the linens and pillows are always fresh and clean. 'Beds that are not in bedrooms' includes: Living room: Pull out sofa: it is approx. full/queen size, sleeps two Living room: On request we will add one luxurious, 18' thick queen size airbeds which sleeps two persons and possibly a twin airbed as well. Extra beds: Large bedrooms: On request we will add one luxurious, 18' thick twin size air beds to either or both of the large bedrooms, each of which each sleeps two persons. All beds are made up with clean, high quality linens, blankets, pillows, and comforters. FULL DETAILS THIS IS A FULLY FURNISHED & EQUIPPED HOME Fully air conditioned & every bedroom has a separate AC The main and lower levels are also airconditioned Very Large fully equipped kitchen 2 Full Bathrooms Laundry Room area Private Deck Grilling Patio Private Fenced Yard Private Driveway holds 2 or 3 cars Unrestricted Street Parking The home is located in lovely Bayside, Queens, New York City on a quiet, tree-lined, one block long street.

We have a lovely, landscaped private back yard and deck, outdoor table & chairs and a grilling patio with an outdoor Brinkmann Smoker 'n' Grill. Free internet. Piano in living room.

Please be aware that this room is semi-finished and some guests don't like it. Others love it. Your experience may vary. THINGS TO BE AWARE OF - THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY I want to go over a couple of things with you about the house to make sure you will be comfortable - please contact me for full updated details as this website limits text length. Most love the house but some do not. This is a matter of personal preferences and standards I suppose and I want to avoid creating any feeling on your part that the place is not as represented. I want you to be comfortable. Please read all of the description below. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS - BED PLACEMENT For large groups such as yours, the most important thing is to specify how and where you want beds. In most families the oldest couples or the ones with young children want to stay in the three bedrooms with the queen beds. The master bedroom can fit two additional single air beds and and garden view bedroom can fit one. The small bedroom can only fit the one queen bed in there. So bear in mind who your guests are and what they would like. Here's a summary of the information about the layout and beds: Maximum number of beds & placement - tell me your preferred set up: - Master bedroom: Queen Bed + 1 or 2 single air beds (Sleeps 4) - GardenView bedroom: Queen Bed + 1 single air bed (Sleeps 3) - Small bedroom: Queen Bed (Sleeps 2) - Living room / dining room: Pull out couch + 1 or 2 single air beds (or 1 queen air bed) (Sleeps 4) Adding air beds crowds the living room making it a little difficult to move around. If you want to use the pullout couch we recommend setting it up each evening and closing it again in the morning so the guests can be comfortable using the living room during the day.

Interaction with guests
You can usually reach me or my facilities manager at any time. We will give you our cell phones. Also, there is always a way to get in if you lock yourself out or arrive late. Just follow all of the insturctions we release to you. (Continued from description section) We have three bedrooms on the second floor that are in good condition, each with a queen bed. Because you're a large group we will add two single air beds in the master bedroom and one single air bed in the medium side ('GardenView') bedroom. That way the second floor will sleep three couples plus three singles for a total of nine people. If you want some other arrangement, please let me know well ahead of time because we normally set the house up well ahead of your arrival.

My stay was amazing, so comfortable and Norman is wonderful with communicating. It's very quiet and enjoyable. Although you may want to use a car or 15$ cab ride from any train station will help. Overall amazing house!More

Janaisha and her friends were super great guests. Of course, many hosts are leary of allowing a college freshman and her friends to celebrate her birthday at their home. I was convinced after talking to her mom that everything was going to be fine. Well...More

About the neighbourhood
Bayside is a beautiful, quiet family-friendly part of New York City, an oasis really. There great nightlife and dining just a few blocks from the house along the famous Bell Boulevard. The Chinatown in Flushing is the largest Chinatown in the USA and features scores of restaurants. It is a quick and convenient bus ride (Q27 bus, two short blocks away, a 20 minute ride for $2.75). The Oakland Lake Ravine is a huge lake, forest and walking trail at the end of our block. From there you can walk to the Environmental Center, harbor, Bayside Marina, walking / jogging / biccycle trail along Douglaston Bay with a lovely foot bridge to the cliffs of Crocheraon Park and gazebos set in the woods overlooking the harbor. A most romantic setting.
Getting around
Bayside is a true mecca for night life - it has virtually every type of dining you could want within a few blocks of the train station: Uncle Jack's (world class steakhouse), Pappazzio (one of several fine Italian restaurants), Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Sushi, Bourbon Street (award winning Cajun), Donovan's (voted best hamburger in New York City), and plenty of fine bars and lounges for every type. Nearby Great Neck and Manhasset feature the world class Americana Shopping Center with every major high end retailer you could imagine - just a few include Whole Foods, Ralph Lauren, Gucci - the list goes on and on. In the other direction, within 15 minutes is Flushing, the largest Chinatown in the U.S., teeming with authentic Chinese
