California-born but after 11 years in Manhattan, a New Yorker at heart.

Matthew's 2 bedroom in the East Village was great! Super clean, very cool, spacious apartment. Super close to tons of great places including St. Marks Place where there's tons of trendy bars/nightlife. No issues on the day getting to/in the apartment either.
Great affordable location in LES. Matthew was a wonderful and responsive host! This place is in the heart of great food and drink! The apartment was cozy and had everything we needed. Great price, great location and great host.
Matthew greeted us when we arrived, despite the fact that this was not the original plan. He carried my heavy suitcase up the stairs and showed us the little quirks of the apartment and gave us local advice. We stayed in this apartment for 9 days and we loved it! The position in Manhattan was wonderful. It was in the centre of a district which was great for shopping for basics and a wonderful choice of food! It was close to the subway and we found it quite easy to get around from here. Matthew was always available if we had any queries which was reassuring for New York virgins!
Excellent séjour chez Matthew ! L'appartement était parfaitement conforme à la description du site, très propre, très calme et la vue sur Manhattan ainsi que la petite terrasse privée étaient très appréciables. Tous les équipements fonctionnaient bien. Le quartier répondait totalement à nos attentes, à la fois tranquille et vivant, avec tous les commerces au pied de l'immeuble et il était facile de se rendre à Manhattan rapidement grâce au bus et au métro. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Matthew pendant notre séjour, mais il a été très efficace pour nous donner toutes les indications utiles à notre arrivée et s'est montré très réactif, par mail, à chaque fois que nous avons eu à lui poser des questions sur place. Nous n'hésiterons pas à loger de nouveau chez lui lors de nos prochains séjours à New York.
Appartement confortable, bien équipé et de style typiquement New-Yorkais. A 10/15 minutes à pied du métro dont les lignes vous mènerons aux endroits stratégiques dans Manhattan et Brooklyn.
Un super souvenir pour la famille.
Matthew contacted us promptly and directions to get inside were smooth. The area is great and I couldn't have asked for a more authentic NY place to stay. Plenty of entertainment if you want to stay in and even more to do out in the streets.
We just returned from a 4 night stay at Matthews place and cant say enough wonderful things about it. The home itself was clean, roomy for the 2 of us, and most importantly for us the bed was extremely comfortable. We have stayed in a few other places when visiting the city and bedding has almost always been an issue. Location was fantastic for food and things to do as well as the subway. There were a ton of options within just a couple of blocks of your front door and a great Irish pub on the corner when you come out the front door of your building. We enjoyed our time very much and would definitely stay again. Matthew was a great host and very easy to communicate with, being our first AirBNB experience we couldn't have asked for a more accommodating host. Thanks Matthew!!
The apartment was really cosy and well equipped. It is perfect for two couples due to the two nice bedrooms.
The bathroom could use some refreshing.
The neighborhood is lively with nice restaurants close by. The subway is also not to far (10 min walk).
We didn't see Matthew, but the handover of the keys was very smooth and he answered always very quickly.
We would definitely recommend this apartment for a trip to NY!
Great place! Great location! Matthew was a very welcoming and responsive host. Cleaning could have been better, however. Upon arrival the trash can in the toilet had not been emptied and it seems like a long time since the floor under the bed has been dusted off. Nonetheless, I would highly recommend this place to anyone wishing to enjoy New York from one of its best scenes.
Just got home from a great long weekend in New York. The apartment was exactly as described in previous reviews; beautifully cosy, perfect for a couple and right in the middle of one of the up and coming "happening" areas of NYC.
We didn't meet Matthew but everything was arranged by text beforehand and the keys were left with someone a 1 minute walk away from the apartment. The apartment was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bedroom was quiet despite being at the front of the building facing onto Stanton.
Transport links were very good. The metro station at Essex/Delancy is a 4 min walk and from there you can go anywhere you want to. If you're in town for a few days buy a 7 day unlimited metro and bus pass for $31 from the kiosk at the station. Really good value.
The Lower East Side is very good for bars and restaurants (have a look at Beauty & Essex - the pawn shop, restaurant bar combo.)
All in all a great Airbnb experience. Thanks Matthew.
Matthew was great! We didn't see too much of each other because he was so ambitious in his sightseeing but he was clean, patient, extremely courteous, respectful of the space and bikes, and a very open-minded traveler. I hope he visits again sometime so I can dedicate more time to showing him around myself.
Matthew was an ideal guest. He communicated his plans well, he left the apartment clean and tidy, and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. He'd be welcome back here anytime!
Matthew was easy to communicate with, clear about his timeframe and plans, and left my home clean and in tact. I recommend him as a guest, and he is welcome back any time.
I only met Matthew when he arrived. He was quiet and left the place clean. Good guest.
