Many consider the West Village to be the best neighborhood in New York City. You'll find amazing restaurants, bars, cafes and shops everywhere you turn.

Jann was great with texts and phone calls. He was a most thoughtful host but we found everything that we needed including clues to the family's taste in books and videos. We were too busy seeing plays, eating at nearby restaurants and taking a NYC Tenement tour to enjoy the things we find in our own homes. Our metro cards were easily used at the close metro station and we found that walking the neighborhood brought many delicious treasures.
Great bed in the master and a most delightful Very Hungry Caterpillar in the second bedroom. Wonderful location, cosy place and two flights of stairs. Pack accordingly.
Clean, convenient rental in a great neighborhood. Jann was very responsive and made sure that we were greeted on arrival. We had some trouble with the shower faucet, but he made sure to get back to us very quickly. The place was just as described and was clean and stocked with necessary items such as paper towels, soap, etc. Would recommend.
This apartment is a great experience for our stay in NY! The location is really convenient, and there are lots of great restaurants and bars! We can enjoy different food everyday around this neighborhood. Just under the building there is a supermarket, so the buying is easy also. The house is just like the picture, and it's really cute. Perfect for the family stay in NY. And Jann is really kind and responsive, a good host. The only problem is, it's a little noisy because it's at the crossing road. However, the host kindly prepared the eye-plugs for tenant. In a word, we have a great vacation here in Jann's house. Thanks Jann.
Jann was unable to meet us but, Nathan let us in and showed us around the apartment. There were four of us and the two bedrooms gave us plenty of room. The apartment was well appointed with towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, kitchen supplies. There was a market just down the street if needed.
Jann was easy to correspond with and provided us a list of information about the neighborhood and restaurants that were nearby and other favorites about town.
It was February, windy, cold, and a bit of snow but, we had no problem getting to the metro or nearby restaurants plus there were always cabs available just outside the front entrance. We only used the apt to sleep and shower; we were gone from morning until late in the evening but, the location was close enough to the metros that if you did want to return during the day you could.
Everything went well and I would recommend Jann's place to friends. We especially liked staying in the West Village. Neat vibe. Lots to do but, not rowdy or commercial. If you are there on Saturday be sure to check out the farmer's market in the park across the street. Note: It is on the third floor. It was not a problem for us (ages 21-72).
This was a perfect AIRBNB experience from beginning to end. The apartment is comfortable and clean and very well situated. The beds are comfortable and we didn't want for anything. Jann was very prompt and helpful in all communications and check-in was a breeze. I would definitely recommend Jann's place and will return there in the future. Thank you Jann!
This was our first foray into Airbnb. We will definitely go this route again. Our host was extremely responsive (and timely) when it came to our questions and concerns about the apartment. The description and other positive reviews we read were right on target. The apartment was very clean, nicely furnished, with comfortable beds in each of the two bedrooms. There were drawers in the Master bedroom to put our things. It was an easy third floor walk-up, and very convenient to anything we wanted to do in the West Village, where our children live. While there is some street noise none of us found it intrusive and did not have to use the earplugs that were available in the apartment. We were able to park our car on the street, which also saved us a lot of money. The surrounding neighborhood is charming and has so many restaurant and shopping options. Public transportation is easy to access. It poured rain one day and our host even had umbrellas for us to use.
I would highly recommend this particular place and if we (two couples) were to return I would try to book the same place again.
We have spent a great week in New York and we have been very comfortable in the apartment . This one is placed in a well zone, with a great variety of bars and restaurants and shops, and in addition, is near the underground.

I am a writer/producer living in New York. I worked in television for many years, hosted large New Year's Eve parties for a decade and eventually launched a company, which produced a 10-city, simultaneous New Year's Eve party, connected by a live broadcast.
I love New York and I also love to travel. Whenever I'm out of town, my two-bedroom apartment in the West Village proves to be the perfect home for Airbnb travelers from all over the world.
