We had a gréât stay and recommand the place!
Unfortunately had to postpone reservation due to bereavement issue back in UK.
Host has been very helpful in liaising on revised dates when I hope to fulfil this booking.
we were informed very close to our arrival that the original apartment we had reserved (in chelsea) wasn't available - this was somewhat of a panic moment as we had booked the place several months in advance and had only a week or so before our trip began. additionally, we had researched NYC neighborhoods quite a bit and had really wanted to say in the chelsea-greenwich village-tribeca area.
to her credit, though, sara worked hard to make sure that found another place for us to stay. obviously, being asked to stay somewhere else (ie not chelsea) was a bit of a letdown, but the fact that sara made sure that she found us an alternate (and better) place showed that she took the job of a host seriously and professionally.
the apartment itself was pretty awesome. gorgeous interior design. no street noise. close to multiple subway lines, so, ideal for exploring the city. also close to central park (especially the playground at the SW corner that our toddler loved). not too many great restaurants nearby but with the subway that turned out not to matter as much.
the only (mostly minor) negatives were that it was missing a microwave (which we were suprised by), and on the first night we had a very noisy high-heel wearer strutting above us (city life, i guess). thankfully, for the rest of our trip it was quiet!
in summary, we had a pretty good stay and the apartment was beautiful! thanks for hosting us, sara!
Great place !! The Photos was exactly what the Studio Apartment looked like. It was very Clean and both Bed and Sofa Bed were very comfortable and uncluttered and I would recommend Sara and Matteo place to all my friends and family that would like to spend some time in NYC.
Sara was very hospitable with us and asked us several times if we needed anything but since we are from originally from NYC we knew our way around.
The only thing that was a bit noisy was the Air Conditioner when we needed because even though it was Oct there were a few nights that it was needed.
Neighborhood was very safe to walk around at night and everything you needed was in walking distances and quite a number of good restaurants in the area.
If I need a place in Manhattan again I will book with them (website hidden) & Andrew Franklin
Very nice place. It was exactly as pictured - CLEAN! Comfortable, modern, spacious for NYC and uncluttered. Felt very safe walking in the neighborhood even alone at night. Good location to get all you need in NY. Nice doormen etc. Matteo and Sara were most hospitable and went out of their way to be helpful. Thanks for that M&S! I'll be back.
Can't fault anything with the apartment, very clean and comfy. The location is great, walking distance to Central Park and subway station.
There's a information pack prepared by Sara with all local shops and restaurants info, great help!
Sara was extremely helpful and made my stay enjoyable and hassle free. Her apartment is lovely and fantastically located on the UWS.
The location is fantastic, and the place is well maintained.
Sara is very pleasant and available for any issue.
The apt has everything you need, but not more than that.
It could be somewhat better cleaned.
Remember there is only a single restroom.
Overall - a good experience!!!
the appartment was exactly as the pictures, so it was an really good place to stay in new york.
