Dara's apartment is absolutely fabulous and I can't recommend it highly enough. The location is one of the best in NYC, the West Village is like New York meets Paris and you have everything right at your door stop. It's also close to two subway stops. The apartment was warm and cosy and fairly large for a nyc one bedder. Dara was a pleasure to deal with and always on hand if we had any questions or issues. I really hope we'll be back again soon!
Wonderful apartment, perfect location in the West Village. It was great to be able to walk to so many great restaurants which are right on your door step. Subway is a 2 minute walk with famous Century 21, Broadway/Times Square/Macy's/Chelsea all only a couple of stops away. Great coffee shop below, if you are there for a few days ask for a coffee card. We loved the yoghurt shop around the corner, and Murray Cheeses for a sandwich and all of your delicatesants. It can be noisy in the evening, but it is NYC. Nothing to deter from the experience though of staying in such a vibrant part of the city. A huge thanks to Dara for having us in her apartment and allowing a late checkout on the day we were leaving because of a late flight.
This was indeed, a charming apartment in the best location. My husband and I stayed for just over 2 weeks and loved every bit of it. The apartment was clean, well appointed and the bed was super comfortable! The lounge room was so spacious and comfortable it was great to spread out across after all the days walking. We were there over Christmas and the heating was fantastic. The location really is great. It is around the corner from Bleeker Street where you can buy just about anything - with the most delicious deli's to some very cool clothing stores. It is also really close to Soho if you need some more highend shopping. There are subway stations within 1 minutes walk that give you access to 3 different lines, uptown, downtown and across town. After being a busy tourist all day, coming back to the village really did offer a lovely gentle respite from the buzz of Manhattan. The apartment also sits just above a great little coffee shop with staff so friendly that they will tailor your cafe lattes, macchiatos etc to just how you like it! The only negative comment I can make is that at times it was a little noisy from the street or neighbours occasionally playing music in the mornings while getting ready for work. But that is just apartment living in New York so it is probably an obvious comment! Dara is so lovely and easy going. Always fast in getting back to you. We flew out late the day we checked out and Dara was so easy going about letting us leave our bags in the apartment for the day. I very much recommend this apartment.
We loved our stay in Dara's Apartment! The place itself is beautiful and clean, the location is surpassing, the bed is probably the most comfortable we had ever slept in, the bathroom beautiful, the shower worked perfectly, the towels were super-soft.
Dara is a very friendly person. She waited for us in the apartment to give us the keys and let us check out at whatever time was best for us. The only thing which was not completely positive was that it was kind of difficult to communicate with Dara (our question about a nice Italian place around remains unanswered until today ;) )
That fact didn't cause any problem for us, though. Therefore, we would definitely come back!
I just want to clarify that I had responded within an hour to Dagmar's email and its unfortunate that she received the email days later because I gave a few really good restaurant recommendations!
I really do try my best to be as accommodating as possible to all my guests. In any case, Dagmar was lovely and hopefully she will be back again to try the restaurants ;)
Dara is great, very helpful and responsive. Located in a good part of the world, access to everything and very much part if the vibe. Great coffee downstairs at Prodigy, with some if the roasting smells in the apartment block. Apartment itself very spacious by comparison to most, bit of noise but nothing unexpected and felt very much at home. Give it a go.
This place was simply fabulous. You just can't get a better location. Dara was welcoming and helpful. Bed was comfy, great linen and beautifully fluffy towels. The apartment is light, clean and spacious. Highly recommended.
Dara was super helpful, when I asked for an extra chair she brought it within 20 min. Check in and out was effortless. The location is superb. There is a great espresso bar downstairs and it was the only time in my life that I was in a great cafe using the wireless service of the apartment I stay in. The place is full of light, central and not noisy. Already booked my next visit!
Apartment is really great - exactly as represented in the profile - spacious, very comfortable, good features and nice to look out over the street where there's a lot of life going on (but not noisy).
The best part by far is the location - it was brilliant. Perfect for exploring the West Village, Soho, Meatpacking, the High Line etc etc and 2 minutes walk to the subway station which goes everywhere. We ate out on the street 3 nights and walked to The Spotted Pig, Babbo, Momofuku and Badukan on other nights. The immediate area is fantastic - cobblestone streets, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants..... and theres a decent coffee shop in the building (and I'm very particular about my coffee).
Logistically, Dara was very easy to deal with - there on arrival, gave a quick rundown and her contact details and then left us alone - which was exactly what we were after after a long flight; and later immediately accommodated our request for a 'late' checkout.
Can't say enough about what a perfect spot this is for a New York holiday.
Dara's apartment was terrific! My wife and I enjoyed our week there and would be happy to return. Location is perfect and its great for two.
The apartment more than met our expectations: living area is larger than envisioned; separate bedroom provided respite after exhausting days; bed was extremely comfortable; ceiling fans were welcome when air conditioning wasn't needed; we appreciated the esthetics and quality work on the apartment. Dara was the perfect host: communicative and responsive and gracious (flowers for our arrival and a package mailed back to us of forgotten items). And of course the neighborhood is wonderful. We were at home.
