If you want a taste of living like a real New Yorker then we couldn't recommend Chelsea's charming apartment highly enough. Quite spacious by New York standards, it's nestled in a quiet spot right in the heart of the unrefined Lower East side a few blocks walk from great places to eat, drink and shop. The apartment was clean, comfortable and warm (we were there in December). The stairs though, will give you a bit of a work out! Chelsea was really helpful and flexible to our needs. Ideal for 2 couples. A great experience and I hope we will be able to stay there again soon as we now consider it 'our' apartment in New York.
Thanks Chelsea for all : )
We were very happy there...first time in Ny and the localization was very opportune. Near from East Broadway station, with firends, drinking some wine, listening some music and painting some ; )
cheers and good luck!
for all kind of traveleres
We loved our stay in Chelsea's Chinatown apartment. The location was great - really close to the F line at East Broadway which takes you north to Times Square and Greenwich Village but also downtown into some of the cool parts of Brooklyn. The apartment itself was clean, pretty and uncluttered, although we struggled in the mid-July heat with no fans or air-conditioning. There was only one set of keys to the building which made it difficult to coordinate activities with 4 people. Organising our stay with Chelsea was very easy. Overall we would highly recommend this apartment for small groups.
Chelsea was a great host, always prompt to answer our questions and eager to help ! Her apartment is really nice and airy for Manhattan, with new amenities and lots of bedding. 6 and R trains are stopping close and you cannot have a better spot in Chinatown !
The host was great, everything was ready for us and our stay was problem-free. The apartment was neat and tidy, and the kitchen well equipped. It is a fourth-floor walk-up which may not be manageable for everyone. The area is very convenient with a laundromat just next door and the subway just a few blocks away.
Chelsea's apartment is really convenient, well appointed and good value for money. She was out of town during our stay, but arranged for her friend to meet us with keys and introduces us to the area.
The location is three blocks from the subway, which was great and we stumbled across some amazing Chinese eateries that we discovered on our walks around Chinatown.
For a Manhattan apartment, it was really spacious.
I would definitely stay in this apartment again and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in New York City for an extended period.
had an amazing time staying in Chelsea's apartment. I was more than what I had expected. It is within walking distance to lots of great bars, restaurants and shopping. I didnt want to leave.
Chelsea was a great host, she helped us for the practicalities and was always available by email and/or by phone when needed. Our group was actually smaller than expected, and Chelsea refunded us of the extra fee associated to this 5th guest.
The flat is at about 8mn walk from 2 subway stations (West Broadway/Rutgers & Chamber Street/Center), in a quiet neighbourhood at night. It's located in Lower East Side, but the street is actually a continuation of Chinatown. For joggers, the Brooklyn bridge is very close, and the great view when coming back from Brooklyn is worth getting up early for running!
Chelsea was a great host. She helped with tips on how to get from the airport the best way as well as tips to good restaurants. The apartment was perfect for our needs, nice and clean, and the location was perfect for a week on Manhattan.
I give Chelsea and her apartment my recommandation!
I had a great time - awesome location, quiet apartment. Everything taken care of. Highly recommended.
Chelsea was a great guest. She left the place very clean and was easy to communicate with before and throughout her stay. I highly recommend her as a guest.
Chelsea is a returning guest and I'd be very happy to welcome her back, as she is a conscientious guest, easy to communicate with and appreciative of our house and property! I can highly recommend Chelsea.
We enjoyed meeting and hosting Chelsea. She left the cottage in good condition and we would be happy to host her again.
Chelsea was a great guest. She kept the place in order, and went the extra mile to water my garden and house plants, which i greatly appreciated.
