As an Airbnb host, it's so important to me that my neighbors and my landlord will be comfortable with me, so I ask every guest to keep their noise down and if a neighbor wonders who you are, that you are my friends staying with me. It's simple and once you've made your reservation, we are indeed friends in my book! Thank you for being wonderful guests!

  • C'était notre première expérience avec airbnb et nous sommes ravis.L'appartement est idéalement situé,le quartier est très vivant mais l'immeuble très (website hidden) est décoré avec beaucoup de goût, très confortable,on s'y sent vraiment bien.Elle a répondu à toutes nos questions et à toutes nos attentes avec beaucoup de gentillesse et d'attention.Les stations de métro sont juste à côté,le bus et stations de vélos également. Si nous retournons un jour à New York ce sera sans hésitation au même endroit!!

  • Elle's studio is perfect - beautifully furnished, clean , thoughtfully stocked with amenities ( down to contact lens solution!) and in a brilliant location for our shopping trip ! Her assistant Hannah was so friendly and efficient checking us in. My sister and I can't wait to stay again. Thank you Elle for a great intro to Airbnb- it surpassed my expectations!

  • I had a great stay in Elle's appartment. It is located in an area where nothing is missing - like in the appartment itself. Subway stations are a few minutes walk like very nice restaurants as well. The appartment is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The organisation was perfect and Elle was there to help anytime needed. Definitely a recommendation for a great stay in New York.

  • We LOVED our stay at Elle's apartment in the West Village! Fantastic neighborhood, extremely clean apartment and great communication by Elle! We would absolutely come back. The building itself is a little old/under construction but once you get into the apartment its just perfect!

  • Hot, tired and thoroughly fed up with the crazy travel between Newark Airport and the city, Elle's beautiful flat is such a great place to unwind. It's surprisingly light, airy as well as intelligently laid out for a real feeling of space and warmth, too. From prettily framed photos, pottery to a multitude of interesting books, it feels like an artist's haven.

    Hospitality is clearly Elle's forte, she knows the traveler's mind and supplies the little things that we might forget. Think toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, makeup remover, FLUFFY, FRESH AND PLENTIFUL TOWELS, etc. It's really thoughtful and seriously helped me out! The bed also has to be one of the loveliest parts of my stay...it's huge and comfy and perfect for resting for your achy bones. I was also surprised with how quiet it all was at night, especially considering how close you are to the action.

    The flat is in a great neighbourhood. Amazing West Village restaurants surround you and I only wish I stayed longer so I could try them all out! Grey Dog is on your doorstep and I walked to The Spotted Pig, which was brilliant.

    Oh, and New York summer? I laugh at your hellish heat. The air conditioner is all kinds of delicious.

    Thank you Elle for being so accommodating and efficient, it was a pleasure staying at your flat!

  • Our host, Elle, was very helpful and responded to my questions quickly. She went above and beyond with advice and suggestions. The neighborhood was terrific. The fun starts as soon as you leave the door. So many restaurants in every price range. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and look forward to our return visit.

  • Elle was a perfect host, and in the "city that never sleeps" we slept like a baby! Everything we needed was easily accessible and the location was amazing! So many restaraunts and fun bars on the same street. Also lots of cool music shops that have lots of history. There is no reason to look at any other listings, this one is golden! Cherry on top of our perfect vacation to the big apple!

  • Second time in this apartment and it was great again. I really love the apartment. It's so cozy and nice and it's located in such a nice place. So many good restaurants and bars nearby. The subway station is a 2 minute walk. When you just want to relax a bit and you like watching people, Washington Square Park is a great place. You can be there in maybe 5 or 10 minutes. A little bit further but a really nice place is the High Line. A nice way to get there is via the Hudson River park. When the weather is nice you can see a lot of people running and playing ball games. And Elle is just great. I was really happy to see her again. When you want to visit New York and stay in a great neighborhood, this is the place.

  • Our stay at Elle Callanan's apartment in West Villlage was our first time using airbnb. Everything went smoothly right from the time we decided to book the apartment. Elle was available any time and always responded to our questions promptly. The apartment was very comfortable and well appointed.

Welcome! Your comfort and enjoyment is my top priority. New York is such an international city - each day reads like three for all the opportunity and experiences that culminate in a mere 24 hours. I love hearing what draws others to NYC and enjoy sharing suggestions to enrich the adventure for you. We have a responsibility to our global brethren not only to share what we have, but also to learn all we can to contribute to the collective consciousness. My life motto it is: "There is always a solution." No better test of that philosophy than taking the leap of faith that is travel. Can't wait to hear from you!
