Carine is a wonderful host! Carine was so hospitable and nice. Carine guided me through out my weekend in NYC. Carine even walked with me on the subway to teach me. This helped me so much. I would definitely refer her to my friends. I had an epic weekend. Thanks to Carine!
My boyfriend and I had a really great stay. The bedroom was nice and super spacious, our bed was super comfortable. The apartment as a whole is very nice. Our host Carine was friendly, although we barely saw her while we were there since we were out and about all day! The location is convenient. Only a train ride away from Manhattan, downtown NYC etc. The apartment is surrounded by small chops and restaurants that are really good. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying at Chez Carine :)
ortable. Our hosts were friendly, although we barely saw them while we were there since we were out wandering the town all day! The area is perfect, very close to Valencia street, cute shops, cafés and some of the best food we've eaten this trip. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying here. :)
Nice room, especially the decoration. Really comfortable and clean. Carine is so nice and provides useful information, such as the transportation. Definitely recommend it to my friends who will come to NY.
Le logement correspond à la description.
Il est situé à une dizaine de minutes des stations de métro. Très pratique si vous venez de l'aéroport JFK car c'est une ligne directe.
Le quartier est vivant et les supérettes sont juste en face de l'immeuble.
Carine est très accueillante même si nous ne l'avons pas beaucoup vu car nous partions tôt et rentrions tard.
Bref, je recommande pour se loger à prix contenu à Harlem.
Super accueil de Carine, qui a été très arrangeante avec nous car nous avons eu quelques problèmes de dates :-). L'appartement est tout juste parfait, fonctionnel très bien situé à New-York. Magasin juste au bas de l'immeuble. Nous le recommandons +++
Great location, easy access by tube, perfect !
My family, not me, stayed at Carine's place for 6 nights, but I was staying at another place which is very close to Carine's apartment (3 mins walking), which makes me feel confident to comment on this area.
Carine: She is a very nice girl. She contacted me before the check-in date because she would be out of town on the check-in day. We met in person and she handed me the key of her apartment and let me keep it for later use. Carine is very easygoing, we chatted for at least half an hour when I went to her apartment to get the key, even it was the first time we meet in person.
General: Carine's apartment is located in west Harlem, closing to New York City College and St. Nicholas Park. (5 mins walking). A lot of visitors, or even some New Yorkers who live in midtown and downtown think Harlem is a dangerous area. It might be true 10 years ago, but it's not the case anymore. I have been staying here for 2.5 months finding no problem at all. I always run at night and some time I came back home after 11pm, I don't feel scared at all.
Apartment: Two of my family members stayed in the master bedroom. The room is clean and spacious, as the description and the pictures show. The closet is not available, but Carine set up a place for guest to hang up the clothes. The guest needs to share the bathroom and kitchen with Carine. My family did not tell me it was inconvenient. The only thing bothered my family was the mosquitos in the room, prepared for it.
Laundry: there is no washer and dryer in the apartment, which is very common in New York. There are a couple of laundry shops around the apartment.
Transportation: Carine's apartment is very close to A,B,C train. 2,3 train are a little bit further, but also easily accessible by walking. I can get to midtown in 30 mins by all the trains.
Food: There are some deli, takeout and small restaurants in this area. I haven't found any good or fancy restaurant. But you can definitely find some good ones at one hundred and twenty fifth street, which is kind of center of Harlem and busy area.
Grocery: Again, I only find some small stores around the apartment, no big supermarkets. You can find Best Yet Market at one hundred and sixteenth street (2 stops away by train) and Fair Market at one hundred and thirty-third street (15 mins walking at least), which are regular grocery stores where you can find everything.
Once we found the entrance to this apartment, we were so pleased with our choice. Carine's apartment was lovely, the room was spacious and the bed was super comfortable! The area was so convenient, and the locals were friendly. We didn't have any problems walking through Harlem, which we did every day to get to the Subway station just a few blocks away. All in all, we had a great experience in New York, made all the better for having a wonderful place to stay away from the madness of downtown Manhattan.
Staying at Carine's was great. She had a beautiful place in a great location. Carine had answers for any and all questions that we had. She was very hospitable but mindful of our privacy as well. Overall, Carine is a great host!
Great host, room as described
Carine and her sister were really nice. Unfortunately, because they stayed only two days, we didn't meet, but they left everything right in the house.
Carine was wonderful communicative and clean. As a host I couldn't ask for more! Would definitely recommend!
Hi Cee. Thank you very much for choosing my place to stay in Rio. You were perfect guests, you left my place in great condition and it was a pleasure to welcome you. My sister and I will be very happy to welcome you in Rio again. I hope to see you in Rio soon.
Have a great week. Thanks again. Roger and Malu
Carine and Andre were a pleasure to have for the night. We look forward to seeing them again!
