Christian and Carla's place is wonderful. I had a great night sleep each night. A very nice home feel to her place. Easy access to the Subway and short walk to some great food. Communication was on point and they made my stay very rewarding. Note, short walk to the NY Botanical Gardens - worth the visit. Thanks so much and I will be back again. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

If you're visiting in the Bronx, this is a comfortable space with easy access to subway (easy 45 minutes to Manhattan) and bus. Not much retail, but a supermarket close by and a not to be missed Italian bakery half a block away.

This lovely AirBnB is very convenient to Fordham and the Botanical Gardens, an easy walk from the subway (I took the 2 from Penn Station), with a Foodtown market just 2 blocks away. The mattress is very firm but comfortable, the area is quiet and I felt safe walking after dark. Highly recommend it.

Our family of four had a great stay. The area is safe and parking wasn't an issue like in others areas of NYC. Like listed it is super close to subways that will take you into Manhattan! This place is a VERY reasonable place to stay if planning a NYC trip!

Great space! Very clean, accommodating and fit 5 of us easily. Comfy beds, great shower, not too far from the subway. Frank even left juice and cookies in the fridge for us on arrival which was lovely. Only down side is it's a little far from Manhattan, otherwise a great, affordable place.

We wanted to visit NYC and have our own place and be able to park and use the public transit. This place met these criteria, and it was totally easy to get there and check in and get in and out. Communication was good. For our purpose, which was to spend time in Manhattan, this turned out to be a bit distant. It takes about an hour to get down there by subway including walking time, and the subway system is a bit tricky with weekend closures. The neighborhood immediately around the apartment is kind of cool to walk around and see all the creative things homeowners have done with wrought iron and chrome. TAllerton Ave subway station is in a sort of working class retail area that reminded me of downtown Merida.
