Other Things to Note
A dog and 2 cats live with us. They are very sweet, well-behaved and sleep a lot. :)
No smoking/drugs in apartment. Please don't bring the party home.
Christa y Carter han sido muy amables, la habitación era lo que esperábamos y la situación del apartamento y la calle eran perfectas. Tienes muchas tiendas de comida, restaurantes, farmacia, supermercados cerca... esta literalmente a 5 minutos del metro linea 1 (roja) desde el portal. Tienen 3 gatitos adorables y una perra llamada Lucy que es muy cariñosa. Tienen hasta un piano si sabes tocarlo!
El baño estaba muy bien. Nosotros fuimos en Navidades y fin de año y a pesar del frío que hacía fuera, dentro en casa se estaba súper calentito. Nos dejaron toallas para la ducha.
Ha sido una estancia muy agradable.
Christa was a wonderful host. The room was exactly as described. It was very clean, warm and homely. Christa, carter and the pets, made my first visit to new york one to remember. I cannot thank them enough.
Christa and Carter are super friendly hosts and although we didn't see them very much because we we're touring the city all day, they made sure to make us feel welcome whenever our paths crossed. The apartment is exactly as advertised and it is in a safe neighbourhood close to the subway, restaurants and a pharmacy a few steps away. Both Christa and Carter are easy-going people and their animals are very friendly with strangers. If you're looking for a chill place to stay in the Upper West Side, we recommend staying with these fab folk :)
Mi estancia en NY fue una gran experiencia y en parte gracias a la estancia en la casa de Christa. El apartamento esta muy bien situado, en un barrio tranquilo (UWS) y muy bien comunicado para moverse en NY. El edificio está un poco deteriorado pero el apartamento es agradable, especialmente la habitación, muy luminosa. Estoy especialmente agradecida a Christa y Carter, su pareja, que han sido muy amables y cercanos, haciéndome sentir como en casa. Me ayudaron a conocer la ciudad y muchos aspectos de la vida allí. Ha sido una estancia inolvidable y que desde luego repetiría sin dudarlo.
We came very late, but Christa was still up to welcome us, which was really nice! Christa and her husband Carter made us feel at home right away. The cats and Lucy (the dog) where very friendly, and definitely enjoyed having guests!
The apartment was great. Really nicely situated between the riverside park and central park. There was a lot of nice restaurants and bakeries just around the corner.
Our room was big and with a nice big comfy bed. So all in all was it a 5 star experience :-)
Christa's place is so cool! We loved it to stay there. It is huge and very comfortable. Christa and Carter are very busy with their jobs, but they always had the time to answer our questions and talked to us a lot.
The neighbourhood is safe. The flat is next to the Central Park and different subway stations. So you can go everywhere from their place.
We definitely recommend the place! Staying in New York at Christa's place is definitely the perfect choice!
We absolutely loved staying with Christa; We were welcomed warmly by her and her animal family. The neighbourhood is great with tons of excellent Mexican and Thai restaurants, plus some of the best bagels at Absolute Bagel on the corner. The location is perfect.; A 10 minute walk to Central Park, and two short blocks to the subway to take you anywhere you need to go in NYC. The apartment is very spacious, and the bed is very comfortable. We would stay here again in a flash!
