We had a great time at Melissa's apartment! It's very tastefully decorated/furnished and has everything you'd need to make you feel a bit like a "NYC resident". Melissa is exceedingly helpful and personable, and the very friendly area boasts countless bars and restaurants. It is central and buzzy, but the apartment itself is very quiet (and the bed is a dream!). We would certainly try and stay here again... Thanks Melissa, and I hope we'll meet again one day!

We had a brilliant time at Melissa's place. The apartment was clean, cosy and in a great location. East Village was brilliant. Melissa was really helpful and flexible about our arrival which was great. We would definitely stay there again!
Melissa´s apartment was perfect for us. Location was just great, there were lots of nice restaurants nearby and it felt really safe at all hours.
The cat was no problem at all, because she hardly showed up and Melissa was very accesible before and during the trip.
I would recomend this place. Thanks for all Melissa!
Melissa is an outstanding host and her charming, cozy apartment provides great refuge in the East Village. As stated in other reviews, her apartment is actually larger than the photos on her listing make it appear. She keeps it very clean and neat. We greatly enjoyed the solitude of her side street, which was still close to the most exciting parts of the East Village. Incredibly accessible to multiple subway lines, this is just about as good a location as one could find in Lower Manhattan.
Awesome apartment! Great neighborhood.
Melissa was very accommodating and was easy to get a hold of. She kept in contact frequently via email and was very helpful.
The apartment was as described/pictured. Great restaurants right arond the corner, everything at your doorstep!
Bed was amazingly comfortable as was the great big couch.
We really got a chance to experience life as New Yorkers. Would highly recommend anyone looking on this side of town to consider this apartment.
Thanks again Melissa!
Staying at Melissa's apartment was a great experience for us! A couple of weeks before our arrival she sent us her welcome letter, which was very helpful. She gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and showed us around. The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated and gave us a very homelike feeling. It was absolutely wonderful to live like a local for a week and be able to rest our tired feet after a busy day in the city. The bed was very comfortable, because of the memory foam top. The shower was nice and hot and we loved the big couch! We would recommend Melissa's apartment to anyone who wants to have a relaxing stay in NYC in a great neighborhood (East Village) with lots of restaurants, deli's, bars and a major subway station nearby. Melissa, thank you for letting us stay in your home; we had a great time!
Got the Melissa's home very quickly, found rather easiiy. Pleasant location with a lot of different restaurants around, authentic historic quiet house, we liked it very much.

Melissa stayed at our house while I was out of town and I can't say there was any trace of her even stepping foot in the house... except to leave us a wonderful review! I would rebook Melissa anytime.
