Other Things to Note
We have two very sweet cats. They are not allowed in the guest room.
No smoking, drugs, or alcohol in the apartment.
Abby is an excellent hostess; creates a warm and relaxing atmosphere in the home... goes the extra mile. The room was neat, bed comfortable.
That was a great time. Abby is kind and nice. She offered me a ride to NY when she went there. We had a lot talk about cultures and human beings, etc. I think it was a great experience.
As you should know I knew my hostess from
earlier visits (this was my 3rd) and as expected
ther were no problems with my check in.(WE
had agreed on the phone how to do it).My stay went very well .Abby is a charming and helpful hostess and when on top of that the
location of the apartment suits me very well
I keep coming back.
This place is perfect!! Abby was so friendly and thoughtful that I felt very comfortable to stay at this place. The room was clean, the shower pressure was comfy, and cats were so cute. It is not too far from the station and the area seemed safe.
Abby has a wonderful place up in Riverdale. She, her daughter, and their cats made me feel really welcome at their home. The room is very cozy and comfortable. The neighborhood has some great places to eat, of note are Greek Express on Riverdale Ave. and Picante Picante on W. 231 St. Getting to Manhattan on subway takes a bit of time, although I found that switching to the express A train on 168 St. station helps save time.
Abby was such an amazing host and I really enjoyed my stay at her place. She told me where the closest grocery store was and give me some advices on nice places I could visit during my stay. I was also impressed with how clean the house was kept. I'll definitely recommend her place to my friends and anyone who has high standards of cleanliness.
Abby and her daughter Sarah made me feel very welcome, and gave me privacy at the same time. Everything was as advertised, and it was easy to get to Manhattan by train, so all in all I had a good experience and would definitely book the room again for future trips to the Big Apple.
I'm the mother of two grown children who likes to play tennis, read, cook, and listen to music. I enjoy chatting with guests and helping them get around New York!
