I was looking specifically for a family-friendly spot near my apartment to accommodate my visiting relatives who had their two-year old son with them. Maya was very quick to respond and had an excellent solution to one of their needs (a pack and play crib) and even had it assembled and ready for their arrival, so if you have a similar need, this is a great option.
The apartment itself is wonderful - Maya definitely put a lot of thought into how best to accommodate guests by making sure there is everything you could need (clean towels, beddings, all the comforts of home) and the space itself is very clean and well-kept. Maya also provides detailed information before and during the booking about the apartment itself.
Chelsea is one of the best neighborhoods with access to lots of bars and restaurants. It is really centrally located so you are close to everywhere you might want to go, but it's also quiet enough that you can get a good night's sleep.
Maya is really the part of the equation that makes it all work because she is very attentive and communicative throughout the booking process and really makes everything as easy as possible. You could not ask for a better and more accommodating host.
Maya was great, so quick and responsive from beginning to end. We had a few immediate unexpected needs and she was very helpful.
The flat was sweet, as described and covered what we needed.
The location is great, right next to The Grey Dog for coffee and opposite a Dry Cleaner / Laundry, close to subway and lots of really nice cafés and restaurants.
Very clean apt. in good neighborhood. Maya and Benjamin were very communicative and helpful. Apt. is very basic, which served our purposes just fine. The beds in each bedroom are extremely comfortable memory foam type. The pull-out couch is not so comfortable and should only be used for short time. We found the apt. to be quite quiet.
We had a great time at Maya' s home. She is very helpful and kinde. The apartment is nice, comfortable and clean. Good location and close to the subway. It is ideal for a couple o a family of four as we are.
Maya was a very helpful host, with excellent communication - useful as our first time booking through airbnb, and very comprehensive information was provided.
The apartment is very pleasant and comfortable, and the location is great - two blocks from Chelsea market, and close to the subway, and .
My feedback is very positive about this flat.
The locations is perfect, very close to meatpacking, the 5th avenue and Soho. Moreover the subway is just at 5 minutes wlak
The flat is very nice, clean and with everything you need. The beds then are particularly confortable.
A group of us stayed here for 3 days/2 nights in January 2013. Maya mailed us the keys ahead of time and left detailed instructions for check out so check in/check out was smooth.
The place was clean, very spacious and SUPER quiet! I slept like a rock. Beds were comfortable as well. Towels were missing but Maya responded within the hour and offered to reimburse us for towels if we wanted to buy them for our use as the laundromat was closed. There were no shampoo, conditioner, body soap etc so you should bring your own.
Overall an excellent stay!
