The house rules are fairly simple:
1. Treat the place as you would like someone to treat your own house if the situation was reversed
2. No smoking in the house, infact no fire in general please!
3. Have fun but don't bring the party home
4. Respect is the key word
Great place and decent location (it's between Ave B and C, not A and B like I thought I saw on the map). The host (Nic) was great. He kept in contact just before I got there and was very clear and informative about how to get in and what to do when I was there. I didn't need to contact him for anything but I knew that if I did, he would respond very quickly.
The place was clean and just like in the pictures. On the last day, I requested a late check-out (3pm) and Nic was very accommodating. After confirming no one needed to check-in, he let me know immediately and there was no problem.
Overall, great host, clean apartment, and despite being on the fifth floor of a walkup, a great experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone asking.
Great stay! The place was cute and clean and fit our needs exactly. The four flights of stairs weren't even that bad! Definitely recommend and would stay there again.
Had a great experience staying here. Stayed with my boyfriend in the main bedroom, and his dad stayed in the other bedroom. The location was great. East village was my favourite place to hang out in NYC, and staying there was great, you feel like a local. Plenty of vibey bars and restaurants just outside your door. The apartment was clean and comfortable and well stocked with everything you'd need. The hosts are great! Would defiantly stay here again!
Moi et mes 2 jeunes enfants avons passé un séjour très confortable. Beaucoup d'items extra étaient à notre disposition. L'air climatisé était très apprécier. Le contact avec nos hôtes était facile et très rapide.
Une épicerie et un ligne de bus à 2 min de marche. Transport en commun fréquent. Bref un séjour à recommander.
Absolutely loved my stay at the apartment! Nic is an excellent communicator, even though I was never able to meet them personally they made us feel very welcome during our stay. The apartment was a great size for the two of us and was a great place to relax. The neighborhood is in a fantastic area of NYC, the sound level never gets intolerable at night, and there are great local restaurants and bars nearby. Located close to everything you need, this is an ideal HQ for your NYC activities, a chance to step away from the adrenalin and noise level of the inner city and relax.
The apartment was just what we wanted. Nic was a great communicator and check-in/out was a breeze. The beds are very comfortable and everything was tidy and clean. The neighborhood is fantastic! We have a great time. Thanks Nic and Tash!
Good location, apartment was as described and quite roomy for NYC. Easy transport links and quiet neighbourhood with good bars and restaurants.
