Doug was helpful carrying my cases up the stairs when I arrived and departed. He also came and cleaned the dusty areas I pointed out. Bathroom and windows could do with renovation
L'appartement est très chouette (idéal pour un couple ou des amis). Il est lumineux, silencieux et très bien placé ( proche de la ligne de métro qui descend jusqu'à Brooklyn, près de Central Park et du quartier des musées). Il y a tout ce qui faut dans les environs (supermarché, café, boulangerie, cinéma...).
Doug est un hôte très accueillant qui fait tout pour que l'on se sente bien dans son appartement. Il a toujours été très disponible pour nous et a répondu très vite à toute nos demandes (il nous a même envoyé les clés par courrier avant notre séjour car nous arrivions tard dans la nuit).
Je conseille vraiment cet endroit !
This appartment is very nice noiselessly. It s very easy to go here by subway or cab. The owner is very nice and give some advice about new york
Doug & Claudia's place is perfect!!!, the location is really close to the subway station and with lots of stores and restaurants around the area, the apartment has enough room to be really comfortable, I traveled with my daugther and she used the sofa bed which is huge!!!, and we had every thing we needed, and most important of all they were very atentive with us, even Doug was there at our arrival to help us with the luggage, and for the check out he allowed us to stay there late in the afternoon until it was time to go to the airport, and he and Claudia resolved every thing we needed.
I strongly recomend them as hosts and their place is really pleasant!
This place was great for my trip to the city. This was my first experience using Airbnb and I would do it again based on this trip. The apartment is exactly what it looks like in the photos. The location is great, filled with shops and food. At night the area gets quieter and you don't really have to deal with distracting street noise or crowds. You are about a two minute walk from the green line subway which will spoil you because you get local and express trains. This makes getting around Manhattan really convenient. Doug was easy to contact and even came to my rescue when I accidentally locked myself out of the apartment one night. Great host, comfortable apartment, awesome location.
Nous avons ete tres bien acceulli, sympatiquement. L'appartement correspond a la description: agreable et tres bien place dans Manhattan pour les mussees, restaurant et le theatres et Central park et le metro.

Doug's appartment was great. Doug provided us with everything we could need including very usefull recommendations of restaurants. He answered all our questions and guided us even by mail during our stay. Flat was clean and looks exactly the same as in pictures. Location is perfect for exploring New York. I would definitely recommend Doug and Claudia's place to my friends. Thanks!

A little about us - Doug and Claudia met in late September 2001, and have been together ever since. Doug is originally from Wisconsin and Claudia is from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Our helper, little Olivia, is a native New Yorker.
We're both educated, neat professionals who've decided to make New York our home. Like you, we enjoy visiting new places whenever we can - Paris and Northern Spain last year. We're believers in what airbnb offers, and have enjoyed the hospitality we've received in the homes of others far more than anything that can be found in a five-star hotel.
