There's tons to do, just steps outside of my door, so get in touch and come be my guest :)
In the Summer months I know it can get hot, but I prefer usage of the AC kept to as little as possible. If the AC is running, close all windows. And NEVER NEVER leave the thing on if you are not in the apartment.
We spent 6 nights at Candice's place. The apartment is small as shown in the pictures but more than enough if you'll be out all day. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked there several times. There is no microwave, though... The bed is very comfortable although the sheets seemed not to be adequate for the size of the bed and that was a rather uncomfortable. Due to a technical problem, we had no Internet during the 6 days we stayed there. Although Candice came to the apartment and tried to fix it, called the technician and all, we had to work around other alternatives without WiFi.. this, of course, was very frustrating to us since we payed for a service we did not receive,we couldn't contact our friends or family abroad and could not look easily for the spots we wanted to visit in the NY unless we went to a Starbucks or other cafe with free WiFi.
Candice is very friendly and responsive but based on our personal experience, there are some points that should be improved. We had a Wonderful time in NY and we wish to come back in the near future
I hate writing bad reviews but I feel I have to be honest here, once the booking was confirmed Candice emailed to say pick the keys up from a local restaurant, 7 blocks away from the apartment.
When I turned up to the restaurant they had no idea who Candice was, now I had a taxi waiting for me outside with all my luggage in it, needless to say it was a stressful situation with the taxi driving impatient to leave and me trying to calm him down to wait until they could find out about the keys eventually after 10 minutes they had the keys but it was under the name Dimitri!? Communication was definitely not Candice's strong point throughout my stay.
When I arrived at the apartment, and this is completely honest there were rats running back and forth along the front porch outside the entrance to the apartment and I could even hear them squeaking when laid down in the bed. The general condition of the flat was not great, I took a chance staying here and wish I had not, the location is good just a stroll away from the nightlife and the place is okay if staying for one night and you can put up with rats outside!
I then emailed Candice to ask what time i needed to leave the apartment she never messaged and then messaged me a day later asking where the keys were, I had left the keys on the table on the table as instructed on the notes in the flat. Then I recieved an email asking why I was still in the flat 3 days later!!! Obviously I had left after one nights stay and still confused why Candice had said this, I think it was a delayed response to me asking what time to leave! Really confused service and so disappointed as this was my first time using airbnb.
Llegamos y nos encontramos perfecto con Candice en el departamento. La ubicación divina y el tamaño del departamento está bien para una pareja. Ella súper accesible y buena onda. Si tuviéramos que decir algo negativo es que no estaba 100% limpio pero estaba bien. Muchas gracias Candice!
We stay at Candice place for two night in May. Candice is really friendly and answer quickly to all our question about the apartment. As mention by other renter the apartment do need a good vacuuming and dusting. Some of the furniture seem a little bit old and tire. We also had a major problem with the lock of the apartment locking us inside of the apartment with no way out except someone from outside having the key and unlocking us, good thing that Candice is a few minutes away and came to our rescue. Candice has mention that she would change the lock , so just check that out with her before renting as you probably don't want to get stuck in the apartment during your vacation. Otherwise the area is great full of café and restaurant and easy walk to the metro.
Nice and helpful guest. Good advices on the area.
Appartement really well located but could have been much cleaner (no cleaning before our arrival)
My husband & I requested to book Candice's apartment a month in advance & she responded right away & accepted. Anytime I had to contact her she responded quickly including the day of our arrive to inform her we were running late. She said no problem. We meet at the apartment she's very nice & friendly & showed us around the apartment & any other info needed. She even gave us detection for places near by & said to get hold of her if we needed something. The apartment was clean & looked nice just like in the pictures. The apartment had all the amenities you would expect at a hotel like wifi, towels, toiletries & a full kitchen. The location was great only 15 to 20 min walking to Greenwich village, China Town, & Little Italy. Just blocks from trains to go Time square, Central Park & Financial District. Over all the apartment was great our next time in New York we'll definitely request to stay here again. Thanks Candice
Todo estaba como se muestra en las imágenes. Fue muy cómodo el recibimiento y el barrio genial.
About the Host, Candice
Hi! I have lived in New York for about 8 years now, and I love every bit of it. I love that there are so many cross-sections of culture here, that you are never at a loss for things to do.
I hope that by staying in my home, you will have an enjoyable, easy vacation and feel as if you have roots in this city that I love so much.
