The listing was exactly as described and the host for very thoughtful and easy to converse with. She is quick to respond to questions and provides lots of great ideas.
We unfortunately only stayed with Arlette for two nights but would have loved to stay for longer. She was very welcoming, friendly and informative about the local surroundings and attractions. We also enjoyed spending time with her pets, a small dog and cat. The accommodation was in a great location and was relaxing to be overlooking Central Park.
Arlette nous a accueilli dans la chambre que nous avons réservé pour un topo sur les restos et bon plan de New York. La chambre ressemble au descriptif de l'annonce. Le quartier est super sympa,il n'y a qu'a traverser et nous voilà à Central Park, l'appartement est a proximité du métro. Il est important de lire le règlement interne à la maison pour un bon séjour . Arlette aime échanger avec ses hôtes. Nous avons eu la petite promenade de charlot (le chien) à Central Park avec elle. Rien à signaler concernant la propreté, l'appart est propre. Petite salle de bains mais fonctionnelle. Vive New York !!!!!
desolee je n'ai pas eu le reflex d'une petite boisson. But you certainly had better than that later on on my invitation. And you are right I was expecting you to know about the kitchen. And my guests do appreciate my "topo" which helps a great deal to discover New York. I am sorry I spend time and effort doing it while you were thirsty, but sitting.
We had a great experience staying at Arlette's appartment. Arlette was very friendly and took some time with us to share tips about the neighborhood, that was nice and quiet. The location just by Central Park was great with a small child, even though there are some steps going up to the appartment. Our son enjoyed the company of the dog very much, so we even went with Arlette to meet other dogs in the park in the mornings, which was great.
Arlette was really helpful. We had a great time in her apartment. The bed was very comfortable and the room was everything we needed.
The bathroom is small but very functional. Great shower pressure!.
She has a beautiful apartment, located in a great zone just in front of Central Park. You can take a subway a few blocks down the street or a bus to downtown or uptown.
Her pets are so pretty and friendly.
She gave us all the information we needed to move around New York.
We had some conversations and she is a very interesting person.
When we come back to new york we will contact her again, surely!.
Avons passé un très bon séjour chez Arlette. L'appartement est très bien situé et nous avons pu profiter de Central Park chaque matin.
Pour nos visite, la bouche du métro C (103 Street) est à 5 minutes à pieds, le quartier est calme et agréable loin de l'agitation de Time Square avec quelques restaurants aux alentours sur Amsterdam Ave par exemple (Arco Café). Arlette est très accueillante, nous avons suivi ses conseils pour nos balades dans NYC. Arlette est toujours prête à rendre service et à discuter. Si nous avons l'occasion de revenir à NYC pour un autre long weekend, nous choisirons de nouveau cet aibnb.
Encore mille mercis les galettes sont delicieuses. Le chat vous a cherche dimanche soir. Je crois qu'il a bien ete gate. J'ai oublie d'enlever la tele elle n'est pas mentionnee dans le posting et elle ne fonctionne plus. Personne ne l'a jamais utilisee, donc j'ai supprimer l'abonnement au cable.
J'espere que votre travail vous ramenera sur ce continent.
Un appartement confortable avec vue sur central Park , central Park est à vos pieds , il n'y a que la rue a traverser . Le métro est à deux pas ce qui est très appréciable quand vous rentrez tard le soir. et surtout vous retrouvez le calme, après l'agitation de Downtown ou de Midtown (et n'ayez pas peur de rentrer en métro, tard le soir car on est beaucoup plus en sécurité dans le métro de New York que celui de Paris) . la salle de bain est privative et vous avez le nécessaire pour votre petit déjeuner le matin (bouilloire cafetière, petit frigo) . Arlette est une hôtesse très accueillante toujours disponible pour vous accueillir et vous renseigner. et si vous êtes Français et que vous ne parlez pas parfaitement anglais , pas de problème , Arlette parle parfaitement français : Bref :Allez y les yeux fermés

About the Host, Arlette
I have lived 40 years on and off in the Big Apple (from the French Alps and Paris). I love New York! I will help you love it too. I wear a smile and I have the New York energy and rhythm in me. I am blessed to live across from Central Park, where I start and finish the day, walking with my dog and see the seasons change, sometimes my guests join me on hidden path and great views.
I am forever curious. I love to see new places and traveled twice around the world.
I paint, do yoga, friends, jazz clubs and opera, I bicycle. I have a small cabin in the woods Upstate 2 hours North of NYC where I escape the roaring city sometimes and breath in the mountains.
Now I understand well your thirst for discovery. I enjoy receiving people, sharing stories, I communicate easily and keep a sense of humor.
See you soon.
