I am a 31-year-old research academic who has lived in New York City for 10 years.
Wow, that was a great vacation. We are Melissa's last guest in NYC. We had a blast.
Melissa was vey helpful and accomodating. I so appreciated her prompt responses to my inquiries. Melissa's place was comfortable and spacious, especially for NYC.
We stayed two nights at this place, it was really nice and cosy. It's a really good place to stay in New York, it is close to the subway and Central Park. The room is comfortable and the three cats adorable.
Really a nice place. We had great time with Melissa and Brett, his boyfriend. Her cats are amazing! The bedroom is spacious with a fridge and a separated bathroom (really nice). The location is really close to the subway booths, with the express, you can be in Midtown within 10 minutes.
Very nice room! Melissa is very hospitable! Clean, quiet and spacious - no smoking. Marble or granite floors in large bathroom with great shower pressure. Air conditioned. Great closet space. Mini-fridge. Cats and chickens no problem! We are a middle-aged couple, visiting daughter in Manhattan. Terrific access to metro and CVS. As Melissa mentions, stairs are a bit steep, but were no problem for us.
We had a great time at Melissas apartment. Melissa is very nice and friendly and her kittys are just adorable! The room is big - for nyc huge! - and it was really clean. The location is perfect - just a few steps away from the metro. We would def. come back!
Great location and chickens too!!! Melissa was quite the host and met us when we arrived. We did not see her much after that. Our stay at her place was an experience yet to be seconded and probably never will be. Thanks again Melissa
Melissa was a wonderful host. She was helpful and sweet.The room was just as pictured. Location, location, location. Good area. Would recommend staying with her.
We had a good time in Melissa's apartment. Melissa is very friendly and helpful. The apartment location is very good. We would come back :)
It was great to stay there. Melissa is very nice and helpful. The room is very quite and clean. Perfect to stay in New York.
Melissa was a wonderful guest – my guess is that it comes from being a wonderful host as well! Clean, respectful, warm, and communicative. Welcome back anytime!
Melissa has been a great guest. Always friendly, respectful and quite. She was very clean and tidy. We had nice and funny chats at home so she was a good company.
Also she had a good relationship with Linda, our cat!
I recommend her as a good guest everywhere she wanna go! Hope to host her again at home!
Melissa and her guests were great. They left the apartment very tidy. Melissa was great at communicating before her stay as well. I would definitely recommend her to other hosts!
Melissa me parecio una persona estupenda , agradable , simpatica y sobre todo muy comprensiva .Ella y su pareja han estado cinco dias y han sido muy correctos y limpios ,son personas que recomiendo como huespedes .
Melissa was a very respectful guest who was stayed at our home for three days. She was respectful of the house and was so quiet, it was as though she was not even there. Would host again.
It has been a pleasure having Melissa in my house, I recommend her as guest, she is very quiet and polite..
Local friends, know her for over a year and would highly recommend. Has a nice place, very clean, great hostess, lots of space and very convenient to getting around Manhattan. Very warm atmosphere!
I met Lissa in college back in 1999 and she is still one of my closest friends. We were roommates for two years. She was always considerate of my space and kept our common areas clean. She is also a great decorator. Most importantly, she is a fun and easygoing person to be around. Even though we don't live in the same city anymore, we still keep in touch and I always have a great time when I visit her in New York. I have stayed in her apartment many times and it is cute, comfortable, and in a good neighborhood. I have also traveled with Lissa many times, most recently to Mexico, and she is always a practical and helpful (and also fun!) person to have around. I would highly recommend staying with Lissa.
I've known Lissa for 9 years, and I count myself lucky to have met such a good friend and colleague on my first day of grad school. We even lived in a tent together for 3 months in Tanzania - and we're still friends - so that says something. She's fun to hang out with and I've spent tons of time at her apartment over the years for cocktail parties, various get-togethers, and just to hanging out.
Her place is very nice. There's a great little backyard (rare in Manhattan) with an entrance from the living room. Her apartment is well-decorated, clean, and comfortable. It's steps from the 6 train and various bus routes. It's also really close to Central Park and "Museum Mile" along 5th Avenue. As a neighborhood, the Upper East Side is convenient - full of restaurants and bars and lots of shopping - everything from clothes to food to electronics. If you were staying for a week or a couple months, I'm sure you'd be happy there!
I met Lissa when I first move to New York, she is a good friend and colleague. I have spent many hours in her apartment, having nice BBQs in the backyard as well as a guest for a week. The apartment is great, well situated (near 6 train and walking distance to Central Park) and with all the amenities. Lissa is a very ease-going girl, responsible and with no problems to help you in as much as she can. Also, she know great places to see in New York, all in all, a great host.
I met Lissa my first week in NYC, 8 year ago. We've been good friends since that time. She is a very gregarious and fun person, in a kickass profession (she studies fossils!!) with a beautiful, spacious apartment. I have spent many enjoyable hours in her company - she even introduced me to my husband. All in all, she is a pretty cool chick.
Lissa is very neat and has worked very hard to set up a large comfortable space for her guests. She is very, very well traveled (she works in Africa!!) and knows just about every hidden treasure bar or restaurant in NYC to boot. I would recommend staying with Lissa not just because the apartment is big, has backyard access, is one block from the subway and three blocks from museum row...but also because Lissa is great company and can offer an NYC traveler great advice on interesting, out of the box things to do in the city.
Lissa and I have been friends since I started graduate school in 2004. She stayed in my apartment for a few days several years ago before she left for a data collection trip and she was a joy to share time and space with. She is a very considerate roommate who keeps her space clean and organized. Her apartment is a great space, a block and a half from the subway, and in a fun neighborhood. I would stay with her if I was visiting the city!
