Convenient, super quiet, beautiful Sutton Place (Mid town East) neighborhood close to subways and delicious restaurants walking distance to parks, cinemas, theatre and great shopping. One floor walk up, cozy, furnished one-bedroom facing courtyard on tree lined block. California King bed, a/c, not overly heated as most NY apartments are stifling, WiFI internet accessibility with password (given upon check in), TV use possible in other room, but full use of kitchen and bathroom....pull out couch in living room for overnight guest if you'd like. Perfect for one person with occasional guest....Your pick of dates - open ended schedule of availability.
Catherine is the person you want to meet, when you visit New York for the first time. She is very friendly, open-minded and never hesitates to help or to give great advice.
I absolutely enjoyed my stay at her appartment in New York and recommend her wholeheartedly!
I enjoyed my stay at Catherine's place. It is very central (walking distance from sights and shops), comfy bed and great host. We had lots in common and I even walked a fashion show for her! It was nice to have friendly company and Catherine helped me to make a great start to my US trip!
I appreciated a lot every moment of the time shared with Catherine and her friend who happend to be there. Renting a room is not just a matter of money, but can be a great chance to meet someone, meaning an always pricelessly unique set of sensibility, of thought, of experience, of vision and of warmth. I met people at Catherine's place and that was exactely all what I search for when I travel. I am grateful to them to have opened up to a stranger like me, their own place to live, as it is used everyday.
Catherine's place is not like getting a room at the Mattiott. It's like visiting a friend's pad where things are as they are, ie, a bit of a mess, a space that's 'old.' Your bedroom will be Catherine's, who is graciously giving it to you while she sleeps on the couch in the smallish outer room. The apartment is clean yet not cleaned up: like my apartment in Boston. My suggestions for the bedroom: a box of tissues for the guest as well as a clock and a waste-basket. Also, bottle of spring water would be a welcoming addition. Fix the bathroom door so that it closes properly. Adjust the heat so the temperature (winter) is not hot and uncomfortable. I did appreciate the comfortable mattress, clean sheets and tasteful covers as well as the prints (Rothko?) on the walls.
Catherine's outgoing personality adds to the experience. And to her defense re. a cluttered apartment: the fact that she had a houseguest, and all his stuff there added to the confusion. She arrived the last night of my 3 day stay. Both of them were very accommodating: it was like staying with friends rather than the impersonal experience of a hotel. I would stay there again. And I would recommend it to others with the caveat cited above.
Please note that this is a 2nd story walk-up.
I had a very enjoyable stay in Catherine's apartment. She was very easy to communicate with and provided all of the information I needed before arrival and during the stay. The apartment is in an amazing location!
Catherine was very sweet and even though she was busy and out of town, I was well looked after by her friend who made sure I settled in well. She has a super duper comfy bed and an excellent location! :)
Catherine is beautiful, happy and fun. it makes you seem that you will be home ... and its location is excellent! I would go back for sure for your home.!sorry have not had more time in their company.
Catherine was a wonderful host, knows the city well and was very helpful in giving me directions, feedback and input. Her apartment is located in a prime and safe area, most importantly is close to everywhere. She helped me find a hair salon that was within my budget. The only downside, her apartment is a bit clutter, but I would not hesitate to stay with her again if the opportunity arises.
Catherine is a great host. She is pleasant and makes everything convenient. She made it work whereas i arrived very late on the first day.
You are very independant while staying at her place. The bathroom is right next to your room which makes you feel privacy.
The only negative point is the cleaness of the appartment. People scared of dust should not go there.
For the rest, i recommend her.
Great place to stay! super quiet! A+ and the most important you have the best subway just 2 blocks away!
Super extra big Bed! haha Cathy rules, she is super nice!
Beautiful neighbourhood! you can take the subway everywhere and even walk to almos every place to see in NYC
Will come back!
