We had a lovely four night stay at Joe's apartment. The weather was great so didnt spend too much time indoors, but the apartment is big with lots of natural light. Very convenient location, close to subway, promenade and high street. Joe met us on arrival to talk us through everything and was available via email/text throughout our stay.
Joseph was great - really easy to get in touch with, and really helpful showing us around the apartment and giving us recommendations on the local area.
The flat itself was lovely - really spacious, clean, with everything you would need, and with some really cool features / decorations too.
The location was perfect, really nice area and really close to subway and bars / restaurants / shops.
Overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend - we'd would love to go back ourselves hopefully one day too, really didn't want to leave!
Like many of the other reviews left, we found our experience of staying at Joseph's exactly as we had read before we went. He is extremely polite, helpful and is a all round great host. He makes himself available In case of an emergencies but after greeting you at his properly leaves you to yourself to enjoy your stay. The apartment is also as you see in the pictures and could not fault anything from the bed to the neighbourhood! Would happily stay again!

Joseph made us feel very welcome. The flat was light, airy and warm in a cold New York winter. The bed was very comfortable and kitchen well equipped. The location is perfect: close to subway stops and in a gorgeous neighbourhood
We were fortunate to come across Joe's place, a wonderful home in a precious neighborhood. It was easy to get to the city and we enjoyed exploring the neighborhood with fantastic stores, restaurants and views. We were sad when we left and truly missed it! Additionally, Joe was a fantastic host with speedy responses and suggestions. We hope to be back soon, it was an awe-inspiring trip!
Second time staying at Joseph's apartment. Just like the first time, it was great and he worked with me to accommodate a relatively last minute trip. The apartment is cozy in the colder months, with great heat. Can't beat the neighborhood!! All around great option.
Joseph was a great host, very kind and thorough. The apartment was lovely, we could have stayed another month and we would love to be able to come back and stay again. His apartment is around the corner from our old apartment, so we know the neighborhood very well and it is the best neighborhood in New York City. I loved the light, the quiet and of course, his decor. It was very inspiring.
About the Host, Joseph
I'm excited to be here and share my beautiful apartment. I am an designer and architect in NYC and have built most of the furniture you see here. I love to travel and know how wonderful it can be to stay in a real apartment, something with character, rather than an over priced hotel. I hope you will like my place as much as I do!
