Per my son, whom I booked for, Arlette was a wonderful and "very French" host. He truly enjoyed her apartment and practicing his French with her. He especially enjoyed her welcome with wine and a (only once in a great while) cigarette!! He lived in NYC for 9 years so didn't need her assistance with places to go/see, but from dealing with her myself, I know she would have been most helpful. He said he would happily stay at her place again!
We had a fabulous time staying in this location in NY, close to the subway, a quiet & neighbourhood next door to Central Park plus a great host. Would highly recommend.
I stayed in Arlette's apartment for 4 nights, and everything was fine - very cozy, pleasant, beautifully located, etc. It's a very nice neighborhood, nice room. Didn't actually meet host, but she provided a list of local restaurants and services, and provided great wi-fi. They were very nice in letting me drop off my bag early. Great dog and cat. However, she wasn't there during this time, and her son was the on-site host. He was a very nice young man, we got along very well, and there was no problem. However, on the last night of my stay he threw a big party and I didn't sleep much that night.
We have a wonderful stay on Arlette's place and highly recommended to anyone looking for short stay accomodation. Very convenient to access to subway train and nearby shops. Place very tidy and have a great time playing with the dog especially and cat.
Me and my friends stayed at Arlette's place for a very short time. Though we did not get a chance to interact with Arlette (She was in Paris when we arrived) the location was excellent ! It is adjecent to the central park, very convenient to public transportation, lot of places to eat around. If you do not have any problem with a cat or a dog trying to sneak into the room when the door is open, I will definitely recommend Arlette's place !! :)
Thank You Arlette!
Arlette était absente nous n'avons donc pu la rencontrer. La chambre est très bien pour deux, mais un tout petit peu petit pour trois. L'appartement est calme et très bien situé (à 30 minutes sur la C de Times Square).
Je recommande !
Arlette ist eine sehr nette Gastgeberin. Sie hält viele Tipps für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt bereit. Wir hatten sehr interessante Gespräche mit ihr. Ihr Hund und ihre Katze sind sehr lieb und gar nicht schüchtern mit uns gewesen. Die Lage direkt am Central Park und der sehr kurze Weg zur Subway Station sind perfekt.

Unusually so, I am a woman of 2 cities New York and Paris. Love them both
Originally from France where I own and rent an apartment I used to live there in this great neighborhood the Marais, that I know like my pocket I will give you all kind of tips (I love food!) . I have wonderful caretakers who will welcome you while I'll stay in touch with you before, during and after thanks to the internet and phone.
I have lived 40 years on and off in the Big Apple. I love New York. I will help you love it too. I wear a smile and I have the New York energy in me. I live in big 2 bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side across from Central Park, so civilized and peaceful but close enough to the jungle, I rent one of my 2 bedrooms -be my guests...
I have traveled twice around the world.
I am forever curious. I love to paint, do yoga, do business, cook, jazz clubs and opera, bicycle and of course first, my son. I have a small cabin in the woods Upstate 2 hours North of NYC where I escape on weekends that keeps me sane.(I might start renting it also some day(: )
Now I understand well your thirst for discovery. I enjoy receiving people ,sharing stories, I communicate easily.
See you soon.
