Catherine was welcoming and friendly. Her place was accurately described.
My host made me feel welcomed during my one-month long stay with her. Catherine is great and warm, etc. She also has a lot of friends, and some of them came over during my stay. The pictures are pretty accurate. I did encounter a problem with dust allergies because the bedroom and apartment were cluttered with a lot of things and the windows didn't open. But Catherine was nice about it. She cleaned out the bedroom and put a bunch of the old stuff in storage and covered up the selves. She also got an air purifier after I asked her to, and that helped with the situation. The other issue with my stay was that it was longer than other hostess' stays, so Catherine didn't anticipate saving me a bigger closet space (the space I got probably could only fit two days of clothes) so I lived out of my suitcases. I also got locked in the bathroom once since the lock was broken and Catherine didn't get a chance to fix when I stayed with her. But overall, Catherine's place was a good neighborhood, quite and safe.
Catherine, a former plus size model with a plus size personality and social conscience to match, is a warm, gracious, outgoing hostess. Her place is as described - cozy, cluttered with the artifacts of a life fully lived, and located in a safe neighborhood with easy access to public transportation and a plethora of restaurants. It's also very quiet for NYC, which I greatly appreciated since I was there for a training intensive, and mostly just wanted to chill out at night. Catherine was late meeting me with the key when I arrived, but genuinely apologetic about her tardiness. Once there, she made me feel completely at home.
The house was exactly ad it shown, small and confortable and in an amazing location, very lively with so many nice resturants and bara around. Catherine is a very intersting person and is so nice to chat with her if she is not busy with work
About the Host, Catherine
Warm and easygoing with a passion for New York and all it has to offer. I enjoy people and am extremely loyal and trustworthy. My husband is in Italy for a year or so working, so I have the freedom to offer my apartment up....it's my pleasure to host people and have the company at the same time. I don't like living alone I'm finding!
