I'm a DC lawyer who can't get enough of traveling. I want to see the world!
This way my first time using AirBnB and it was definitely a great experience. The apartment was just as pictured and Katie was a great host. She gave clear instructions on how to get there and how to get in (the main door was a bit tricky to unlock the first time, but it was easy to get a hang of). The location was perfect as we were right between two subway stations, which made getting to Times Square or anywhere else in the city extremely easy. There is also a small grocery store right down the street that has everything you could need for a short stay. I really enjoyed my stay at Katie's place and I would definitely stay here again if I go back to NYC. The only issue we experienced didn't have anything to do with the apartment, but the people next door must have been heavy smokers, because on occasions the whole building would smell like cigarettes. Other than that, no complaints at all.
Also, just a tip...let the shower sit for a little bit before you jump in, because it took a while to warm up and initially the water pressure wasn't great, but after a few minutes it was working great.
All in all, great experience. Thank you Katie.

A great little apartment in an excellent location with easy access to the subway, very clean and great communication from the host.
Provided an excellent base from which to explore the city and was very comfortable even with hurricane sandy raging outside!
Would definitely recommend it to others.
Great location. Clean space. Clean linens. Perfect place to stay! Great host with timely responses!
Thanks Katie for hosting us! The apartment is in a great location, looks newly renovated, is clean and big enough for a couple to feel comfortable. A nice plus is the building entrance garden with table where you can have morning coffee.
The plan was to visit New York to see an actor friend who was doing a show. When I asked her to recommend lodging options, she said, "Oh, you've got to try AirBnB." So, I did, and landed on Katie's flat.
Well, it was perfect. The room was clean, comfortable, and convenient, and made a great home base from which to see the theatre, and a dozen other treasures in the city.
I had one little incident with the tricky door lock - (my own fault really) - but a quick call to AirBnB sorted it out in very short order. I mention it here not to complain, but only to point out how responsive and caring AirBnB and my host, Katie, were. It cemented for me that I had made a wise choice, and that this, my first AirBnB experience, would not be my last..
Katie was an excellent host, very friendly, kind and communicative, and accommodating. My interactions with her seemed like making a new friend, and not at all like talking to a stranger or a faceless business. A great feeling of welcome and warmth. Thank you, Katie!
I really loved my weekend at this little beauty, and it will be my first choice when visiting the Big Apple in future. I hope I can get back soon.
I had a very nice stay at Katie's place. It's a great studio in a building tucked away in the back behind other buildings, away from street noise. A nice little oasis in a prime location, and very clean and comfortable.
We had a really nice stay in this lovely studio. Katie answered our inquiry very fast and all communication after that went really smoothly. The studio was clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable. It is well furnished and has a stove, dishwasher and full size fridge: great if you feel like staying in. The courtyard is beautiful, it would be worth coming back in the summer. We enjoyed being close to the High Line park as well as the West side market and so many restaurants... and the studio is also remarkably quiet for Manhattan! I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
