Blake is very helpful, even if he's in Brazil. He tries to help us with our trip in New York, and the room is very sweet. The position of the house is really convenient and only 10 to 15 minutes walk to the subway station.
He estado 10 días en el apartamento de Blake y todo ha sido perfecto.
El apartamento está muy bien situado y la zona es ideal.
El metro está a tan sólo 5-10 minutos andando.
Tienes cerca diferentes tipos de restaurantes, bares y supermercados.
Todo estaba correcto, ordenado y limpio.
Ideal para dos personas.
Blake no estaba cuando llegamos pero SIEMPRE se preocupó por nosotros y su amiga, muy amable, nos recibió nada más llegar. Durante la estancia en NY, Blake nos enviaba mensajes para saber si me podía ayudar en algo y si todo estaba bien.
El único "inconveniente" (no para nosotros) es que no tiene ascensor.
Si volviera a NY, no dudaría en volver a contactar con Blake.
Blake's place was great! It's in the best location in the city. The apartment is small but clean and has everything you need to be comfortable. But with all the great bars and restaurants in the nieborhood there isn't any reason to stay in.
Blake was very helpful and responsive in the reservation process. Could not have been a more pleasant experience. I would absolutely stay there the next time I'm in New York. Thanks Blake!
Not only did Blake communicate extremely well from across the world, but his own mother let me in to the apartment when I arrived after 10PM on a Friday. Blake's place is in the perfect location to explore NYC. Close to the metro, surrounded by affordable restaurants and bars, I felt like a local as soon as I settled in. While the place is small, it's cozy, has great internet, and I slept very well. My friend and I even ate at the Indian restaurant below and were treated very well by the owner. Do yourself a favor and give Blake's place a chance, it's really cool.
The apartment was in a great location, a lot to do around the area. Blake was really helpful and answered any questions. The apartment was small but perfect for two people and great for the price.
Great location and blake is an excellent host with super fast and easy communication.
You do get what you pay for and the bed is not a loft bed built into the wall it is more like a freestanding bunk bed.
The whole apartment is slightly tilted which is pretty unusual. The restaurant staff downstairs are extremely nice and helpful and since I was travelling with 4 bags they even carried my bags all the way up to the top floor where the apartment was located which was a massive bonus
