This is a very cozy and roomy basement apartment in an excellent location, with proximity to shopping, transportation, and access to both Long Island as well as NYC. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and very comfortable. There are steps going down to the apartment to be aware of, and because of the time of year on Long Island, basements are frequented by some spiders and mosquitoes, so this may be an issue for some. We immediately brought this to the attention of our host, together with some other concerns related to some items apparently missed by her cleaning crew, and she was fantastic about responding to our concerns. Her response was immediate, and she did everything possible to correct our concerns, and offer us options---which made all the difference for us---including coming to the apartment right away to assist. If you are looking for a convenient and affordable place to stay on LI, and a fantastic host, certainly check out her listing!
