El piso de Jaye era exactamente igual que en la foto, muy acogedor y su gatita Ethel muy cariñosa! El barrio es perfecto, a tan solo 10 minutos a pie de Times Square, super céntrico y rodeado de muchos sitios para desayunar, cenar y comprar algo de comida. El apartamento dispone de todo lo necesario para cocinar y microondas; Jaye fue una gran anfitriona, nos dejó una cestita con jabones y demás cositas para el baño, así como mantas, toallas etc. preparadas. El wifi funciona perfectamente. En definitiva, 100% recomendable! Os sentireis como en casa.
Jaye's place is indeed a delightful little birdsnest -- with the added bonus of the World's Friendliest Feline! Extremely quiet studio. The location is very close to Times Square, theater district, subway, etc. MANY places to eat within a block or two. Great communication from Jaye leading up to my arrival. No drama. Pet-sitting could not have been easier. My trip to NYC was made even more relaxing because the birdsnest was exactly as described. Tweet. Tweet.
We arrived at the Birdsnest in the afternoon, following Jaye's detailed instructions to reach it. She was at home waiting for us and was very kind and welcoming. She explained everything, including markets, restaurants, and nearby places of interest. The studio is very cozy and tidy, the neighborhood is excellent, and Ethel is simply adorable! We enjoyed our stay very much, and we'd really like to come back soon.
Jaye was a fantastic host, she waited for me to arrive from the airport and was happy to be contacted as much or as little as I liked. The apartment was cosy but more than enough room. The neighbourhood was nice and everything is easy to get to or it was a short walk to the subway and you can get anywhere! Ethel was perfect company, very easy to look after and very sweet! I would not hesitate to stay at Jaye's next time I'm in NYC!

I cannot say enough good things about Jaye as a host (and Ethel as a buddy!). I needed a place to stay in Manhattan while I started a new job and searched for an apartment--both pretty stressful activities individually, and exponentially more so when combined--and Jaye made my life so much easier. Her place was a perfect respite from my crazy commute and a great location for someone looking to get to know the city. But the experience was so much more than the apartment! Jaye left me some books about apartment-hunting in Manhattan, had a friend on hand to answer any questions I might have, and was flexible and gracious when taking care of the administrative details of my stay. I highly recommend Jaye as a host, and her apartment as a temporary home base. Thank you, Jaye, for your welcome and support for this new transplant!
We had a great stay on 45th Street. The location was perfect for getting to Times Square and the theatre district. Also wonderful for those who like to run/bike/walk along the Hudson River. Ninth Avenue (2 blocks east) has a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. The neighbourhood felt very safe. The bed is very firm and comfortable and the bathroom is clean (good shower too). Ethel, the cat, is super friendly and was always happy to see us when we returned from a long day of sight-seeing.
Picking up the key was fine - we were met by Jaye's friend who "showed us the ropes."
The studio apartment is small - ideal for one, do-able for two. There are also a lot of "props" for Jaye's work, which gave the apartment a certain charm, but limited where we could place our suitcases. However, after the first night, I felt like we were going 'home" to our New York aparment and that we had a true New York City living experience. I would definitly stay there again.
