I stayed at Michela’s place one night.
The bedroom is clean, the bed is very comfortable, there’s plenty of space where you can put your stuff; sheets and towels are clean; the bedroom is warm: in a few words, you have everything you need to enjoy a relaxing night before jumping into the chaotic NY.
The kitchen and the bathroom are clean and you can use them if you want.
Michela is laid-back, welcoming, sincere and patient. Despite the fact that I was late and that she wasn’t at home, she helped me to get to the house without problems: she had sent me e-mails with info and pictures in order to get to her place, and we also kept in contact via cell phone.
We met in the morning I had to leave. She was so kind. She insisted on offering me the breakfast and finally we sat down to chat a little bit: she gave me useful information in order to visit NY as a tourist (there’s also a basket in the bedroom plenty of brochures!), and she also gave me her advice on how to live and survive in America… as Italian girls…Moreover she told me she would be available in case I need some help during my trip to NY and in general during my stay in the USA. Briefly, this is the right place if you DO NOT want to be treated like a typical guest, coldly paying and going away...Thanks Michela!
Sono stata da Michela una notte. La camera e’ pulita, il letto e’ comodissimo, c’e’ tanto spazio, lenzuola e asciugamani puliti, riscaldamento: tutto il necessario per godere di una notte di relax prima di affrontare la caotica NY. Cucina e bagno sono puliti e utilizzabili dagli ospiti. Michela e’ una ragazza alla mano, accogliente, sincera, paziente. Nonostante il mio ritardo, mi ha dato modo di riuscire ad arrivare a casa senza problemi e senza che lei fosse presente; mi ha fornito tutte le indicazioni stradali (con tanto di foto!!) e siamo rimaste in contatto via telefono. La mattina, al momento della mia partenza, ci siamo incontrate ed e’ stata molto gentile. Ha insistito perche’ facessi colazione e mi accomodassi per fare due chiacchere: cosi’ mi ha dato alcune dritte e info su NY (in camera inoltre c’e’ un cesto pieno zeppo di informazioni turistiche!), e qualche consiglio di vita da italiana a italiana. Inoltre si e’ resa disponibile ad aiutarmi nel caso avessi avuto problemi durante il mio soggiorno a NY e negli USA in generale. Insomma, questo e’ il posto ideale per chi NON vuole essere trattato come il “solito cliente”, pagare, ed andarsene via... Grazie Michela!
I had a very nice time at the appartment of Michela and Luca. Luca wasn't home at the time being, but Michela was a very good host on her own. We talked a lot about all kind of things, she gave a lot of tips about NY, was very friendly and funny. The room was big, nice and clean, and the metro near the appartment.
I felt at home!
I`m a 54 year old neurologist from berlin, Germany and decided to visit NY to improve my English skills on the recommendation of my teacher that it would be better than a language school in Britain.
Because of the very good impression Michela`s apartment made on me on wimdu, I decided to stay there for 14 days – and it was the best thing I did. From the beginning our friendship was very nice and open-hearted. Michela and Luc emailed me a lot of pictures before I left to NY, so that I had no problem to find their flat by subway when I arrived at JFK. I got a key for my own and so I could come and go as I pleased. I could use all the rooms: the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room and I had a big and very quiet room for myself. From Michela and Luca I got a lot of good advice of all the interesting things and areas in and of NY. In the evening we often sat and talked together. They are both lovely people and it is nice to spend time with them. Queens itself is very nice. The apartment is only a short distance to the subway and after 20-minute trip you can be at Central Park. I truly enjoyed staying there, that I planed to revisit them with my 18 year old daughter next year.
I recommend anyone to stay with Michela and Luca, because they are so vibrant and you can learn a lot about the American way of Life especially as they are Italian immigrants themselves ( but don`t worry their English is perfect ).
I hope that they will get a lot of nice and interesting guests and that they will have a very good and healthy future with many kids of their own.
Ich bin ein 54 Jahre alter Neurologe aus Berlin and entschied mich aufgrund eines Rates meiner Englischlehrerin, lieber eine Reise nach NY zu machen als einen Englischkurs in Großbritannien zu belegen um meine Englischkenntnisse zu verbessern.
Aufrund des sehr guten Eindruckes des auf wimdu dargestellten Appartements entschied ich mich, dort 14 Tage zu verbringen und das war das Beste was ich machen konnte. Von Beginn an hatten wir ein ganz nettes und offenherziges Verhältnis. Michela und Luca mailten mir Photos, so dass ich keine Schwierigkeiten hatte, mit der U-Bahn den Weg zu ihrer Wohnung zu finden. Ich bekam einen Schlüssel, war somit vollkommen unabhängig und konnte alle Räume benutzen. Mein eigenes Zimmer war absolut geräumig und ruhig. Von Michela und Luca bekam ich supergute Ratschläge, was ich alles in NY machen kann und was ich unbedingt sehen muss. Abends sassen wir of zusammen und erzählten uns Geschichten. Der Stadtteil Queens ist nahezu lieblich. Die Wohnung liegt nur ein paar hindert Meter von der subway entfernt und man ist in 20 Minuten im Central Park. Ich genoss meinen Aufenthalt so sehr, dass ich nächstes Jahr mit meiner 18 jährigen Tochter wiederkommen möchte.
Ich kann jedem nur den Aufenthalt bei Michela und Luca empfehlen. Sie sind so lebendig und vermitteln selbst den Traum vom amerikanischen Leben, obwohl sie Italiener sind ( keine Sorge, sie sprechen ausgezeichnet Englisch ).
Ich hoffe, dass sie viele nette und interessante Gäste bekommen und dass sie munter und gesund bleiben und einmal viele Kinder haben.
I enjoyed my a few days stay at Michelas a lot. The whole apartment is very clean and I didn't miss anything. The rented room is spacious and the bed is pretty comfortable. Michela herself is a very communicative girl with good advices to make my NY-trip perfect.
We stayed with Michela for 2 nights and enjoyed our time with her a lot! Not staying in Manhatten was a good choice, the train ride into Manhatten didn't take long, the trains are coming very often and even at night we did not feel uncomfortable taking public transport to get home.
The room is really huge, definitely enough space not to step onto each others toes! ;)
And most importantly: Michela is a wonderful hostess, she was very helpful and friendly and did make us feel at home.
Thank you very much! :)
My friend and I wanted to see NYC, but we had a budget in mind. We found accomodation with Wimdu as we wanted a local and more personal experience.
We had not the chance to meet Luca who apparently is ‚the fun part of the couple’ which is hard to believe ;-), but staying with Michela will honestly be the best decision you will make if you’re planning to have an amazing and special trip to NYC. The flat is very clean and exactly what is shown in the pictures. It really was what we were expecting. Michela was really keen on helping us out and quick to respond any of my enquiries. After just one week spent with her, she was not a host anymore, but a friend to us, so that we consider to go back to her home next year. You can’t expect for better service offered from hosts. Michela was simply perfect, she’s outgoing, funny, and really enjoys having over people from different backgrounds.
The flat is extremely cosy and quite big for a New York apartement. We had a wardrobe and shelves in our room where we could put all our clothes. The bed was really comfortable and the best thing was, that we didn’t hear ANY street noise.
Of course many people prefer to live in Manhattan, but looking back we really have to say that Queens was just perfect for us. Astoria Queens is a safe area with lots of restaurants and local shops to discover (go to Mike’s Diner!!!). It was nice to have „our“ own little neighbourhood when we came home from a busy day .
Thanks again Michela fort his lovely week. We keep in touch – the old european way ;-)

Meine Freundin und ich wollten schon immer einmal nach NYC, hatten aber nicht besonders viel Geld. Wir wählten Wimdu, da es uns wichtig war, etwas Eigenes und Persönliches zu erleben. Leider haben wir Luca nicht kennengelernt der angeblich ‚der lustige Teil des Paares’ ist, was wirklich schwer zu glauben ist ;-). Bei Michela zu wohnen, ist aber auf jeden Fall die beste Entscheidung, die man treffen kann, wenn man nach New York reist. Die Wohnung ist sauber und genau so, wie sie auf den Bildern und im Profil beschrieben ist. Es war tatsächlich genau das, was wir uns erhofft hatten. Michela war unglaublich nett, hat uns bei all unseren Anfangsschwierigkeiten unterstützt und hat auch im Vorfeld immer prompt auf meine Emails geantwortet. Sie ist uns nach einer Woche unglaublich ans Herz gewachsen und zu einer wirklichen Freundin geworden. Wir hoffen, dass wir es nächstes Jahr wieder zu ihr nach New York schaffen.
Die Wohnung ist extrem gemütlich und für eine New Yorker Wohnung recht groß. Wir hatten einen leeren Kleiderschrank und freie Regale, um unsere Sachen einzuräumen. Das war super und hat sich so richtig nach zu Hause angefühlt.
Das Bett war sehr bequem und wenn wir abends total erschöpft von unserer Erkundungstour zurückkamen, waren wir immer überrascht, wie leise es bei Michela ist.
Natürlich möchte jeder immer in Manhattan wohnen, aber im Nachhinein müssen wir zugeben, dass sich Queens für uns wirklich ausgezahlt hat. Astoria Queens ist ein nettes und sicheres Viertel, mit vielen kleinen Läden und Restaurants (Mike’s Diner, ist wirklich seeeehr zu empfehlen!!)
Vielen Dank liebe Michela für die wunderbare Woche. Wir bleiben in Kontakt!

Consigliamo fortemente questa carinissima stanza: è silenziosa, molto ampia con un sacco di spazio dove riporre i vostri abiti.. e potete anche vedere gli scoiattoli mangiare il pane fuori dalla finestra! Sia il bagno che la casa sono sempre puliti ed è come essere a casa! Michela e Luca sono fantastici: simpatici, di compagnia, accoglienti e attenti nei confronti dei loro ospiti. La metropolitana è a soli 200 mt e Astoria è un gran bel posto dove vivere.. Nico si è innamorato di questa grande esperienza con Michela e Luca.. e anch’io!! Vi vogliamo bene ragazzi, alla prossima.. magari per festeggiare la vostra green card ;-P
I stayed 6 nights with Michela, in the first week of October 2011. The room was far more spacious than I had expected (knowing NY standards!), had ample closet space, free wifi, was clean and very quiet: there was really nothing to disturb a good night’s sleep. Queens Astoria is a nice and safe neighborhood: restaurants, a good bakery. The area is some 20 minutes taxi-drive from JFK (about $ 40) and for your return flight just ask Michela to arrange for your return cab – mine was there in 5 minutes! I only used the kitchen for making coffee/tea, but cooking is also permitted. The subway is conveniently located just a couple of minutes away from the house, and brings you in some 12 minutes (partially sub ground) to Central Park or directly to downtown Manhattan. Michela proved to be a very decent and lively young lady whom I wish all the best with her excellent and fair priced lodging! I really have no negative points and I really can recommend her.

Ik sliep, begin oktober, 6 nachten bij Michela. De kamer was buitengewoon ruim, zeker voor NY’s begrippen, schoon en met erg veel kastruimte. Wifi was gratis. Het was er bovendien heerlijk stil – niets heeft mijn nachtrust verstoord. Astoria is veilig en met de taxi (ca $ 40) zo’n 20 minuten van JFK. Michela regelt ook vlot en vlekkeloos de taxi terug. De keuken kan ook gebruikt worden om in te koken. Het metrostation is vlakbij en de gedeeltelijk bovengrondse doet er zo’n 12 minuten over tot Central Park en gaat daarna door tot downtown Manhattan. Michela is een hardwerkende jonge vrouw, een uitstekend adres voor een aangenaam verblijf in NY. Ik beveel haar van harte aan, ik heb absoluut niets negatiefs te melden.
Hey Guys! First thing: if you want to have a nice experience in NYC without the trouble sleeping in the big city, this is your place (if you go on summer or spring, you gonna hear crickets). Second: If want to meet fun people, that will take care of you, understand your needs and in the same time have fun with you, this is your place. Third: If just want a large clean room with everything that you need on it, a good bathroom and a clear and secure path to go to the central park, ground zero, statue of liberty and all those others landmarks that you want to see in NYC, THIS IS ALSO YOUR PLACE. This is a true, affordable and fun NYC experience, "travel like a local" to the bone. I totally recommend this fun, young and Italian couple, is just like family (they even made me a surprise party for my birthday in the time that I was on their place). ----------------------------- Para os Brasileiros: você vai se sentir em casa aqui, além do lugar ser fantástico e seguro, vc está muito perto da cidade toda (o metro fica a cerca de 200 metros). Ainda mais com um casal italiano tão amigável e hospitaleiro numa casa onde vc pode ouvir grilos.
We had a great stay, exactly what we were hoping to experience.
Our hosts were amazingly welcoming and fun.
Thanks again for making this trip such a fun experience.
The room was great, the apartment and the location too.
