Joshua and Kate's flat is unique and very well decorated. There are so many tasteful and eclectic aspects throughout the space.
They are extremely welcoming and helpful hosts. I felt right at home. The flat is so close to the train station, making commuting a breeze into NYC. The bed is very comfortable, and the back porch is a perfect place to relax on a sunny day. Joshua's knowledge of gardening and craftsmanship can be seen all throughout the flat.
Joshua and Kate are very knowledgeable and helpful and answered all of the questions I had, as well as recommending their favorite spots in Montclair for food, entertainment, shopping etc.
Location is key for me, and the flat is very close to all of the major destinations in Montclair.
I very much look forward to staying with them again! Thanks guys, cheers!
Joshua und Kate sind sehr nette, freundliche und interessante Menschen. Ihr Apartment ist ebenfalls sehr inspirierend und gemütlich und es gibt dort eine Menge an schönen Dingen zu entdecken. Das Zimmer, in dem ich gewohnt habe, ist ebenfalls sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr gemütlich. Besonders zu erwähnen ist das Bett, samt Kopfkissen, in dem ich hervorragend geschlafen habe. Das Apartment liegt im obersten Stockwerk eines Mehrfamilienhauses. Das Haus befindet sich in der Nähe vom Bahnhof und ist zentral gelegen. Ich würde die beiden jederzeit wieder besuchen und empfehle sie gerne weiter.
Josh and Kate's place was a perfect peaceful haven for me when I need it. It is clean and nicely appointed. Josh is an interior designer and it shows. There are nice little touches all over the house. Its very tasteful. They are warm, welcoming and great conversationalists. They both have a taste for fine wine and beer so it was as though the universe knew where to set me down. I felt right at home. The train station is a three minute walk away. I was in the city for work very quickly.
