Hey! I've lived and worked in Manhattan for the past 5 years; before that, London, Berlin, Brussels and Paris. I'm originally from the south of France, love traveling and getting to know new people and cultures. Come visit us in France or NYC!!

We were with 4 cyclists and had a great week at this chalet spacious and well-equipped for the 4 of us, with a garage for the bikes and a large garden terrace offering a marvelous view on the Pyrenees. The local host was very welcoming but spoke French only, which complicated the communication a bit.
La villa est magnifique ; la description qui en est faite correspond bien à la réalité. Maison lumineuse et spacieuse ; lits confortables (et ça compte !) ; cuisine super bien équipée (avis aux cuisiniers !) ; piscine chauffée et terrasses très agréables. Jardin avec pelouse. Bien située dans la région (proche de Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, etc.). Contacts avec le propriétaire très agréables et sympathiques. Petites attentions de leur part à l'arrivée, très appréciées (vin, spécialités locales...). Merci à eux !
What a wonderful experience for our first visit to NYC. We stayed for 12 nights and found it hard to leave. This apartment is 6 stars +. We loved everything from the large size, playstation & netflix, gorgeous kitchen/appliances/bakeware, two bathrooms, heavenly shower, washer/dryer and security of the apartment. It was an easy walk to either 148th st 3 train or 145th st A&D train for all of our downtown trips. We also spent many days 'home' relaxing and baking. Thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting NYC especially those with kids who need some space. Thanks very much.
Jean-Baptiste is fantastic and beyond any of your expectations. 6 of us traveled to NYC for 4 days and had the privilege to stay in his place. I can reassure you that the condo is perfectly suited with ample space and you will be pleasantly surprised.
I give my highest recommendation for Jean-Baptiste apt and am hopeful you do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
This apartment is exactly as advertised, even better! You will find all you need in this luxury apartment. We had a very nice and pleasant stay. We enjoyed this quiet and climatized place that enable a perfect recovery each night after our long walks as tourists in the city. We also appreciated the pool available in the building.
Despite the nice Airbnb pictures, I couldn't imagine such a spacious apartment. Indeed, the unexpected height of the ceilings, as well as the brightness due to the very wide and high windows expand the space. As soon as you come in, you're inclined, because of the quality of the wooden floor, to live the Japanese way and put your shoes away to simply walk bare-footed !
The simple and modern ornaments of the premises encourage you the same way. But the luxury aspect of the apartment is present all around, the bedding, the bathrooms, the household linens, not to mention the fully-equiped kitchen are perfect (just an electric kettle is missing for coffee or tea).
In short, a very good stay in a well air-conditioned apartment during a heat-wave week (despite a short breakdown of the building system). We would definitely come back to experience another stay in the future. And if a rating is needed, I would suggest 9/10, adding a friendly and helpful doorman in the building."
Outstanding space coupled with a perfect host. Like staying at the Mandarin Oriental but trading location for price. Our initial safety concern quickly went away after visiting the area. In summary, a great value proposition.
I came to NY with my family and staying at Jean-Baptiste's place has really contributed a lot to make our time in the Big Apple memorable.
First, the place is both extremely comfortable and has a beautiful design: beds and linen are of vey good quality, high ceilings and plenty of light, quiet (and beautiful) building and street, great furniture & design, and great media technology with TV projector, Sony PS3, Netflix etc . (which was a serious "plus" as we stayed with our daughter (15) and our 2 boys (13 and 10)).
Besides the location was extremely convenient: at the same time a bit away from frenzy downtown and at a very short distance of the terminal of the line 3 which takes you downtown very easily (and you can always be seated). We had some concerns with the area, but Jean-Baptiste reassured us before we left, and as a matter of fact, we found the place extremely safe.
Last, Jean-Baptiste was at all time an extremely attentionate host, making sure our questions were answered before that we arrived and also as we stayed in his place. There is no question that he cared for our well being and wanted to ensure that we would have a great experience.
And a great experience we have had, and we can only recommend unconditionally Jean-Baptiste's place.
A big thank you for having welcomed us in such a great apartment!
Nathan and family.
J.B. was a great host and the appartment was stunning!!!
At First we had little worries concerning Harlem but the neighborhood is extremely save. Police station on the left corner, subway station on the other. A large security gate which you can only pass with a chip or by calling the concierge. Perfect transition to manhattan! The apartment is very comfortable with two generous bathrooms. We would always come back when we have to stay in new York.
Especially if you compare the price to poor hostels or hotels, you don't have to think twice.
Perfect holiday home.
Hey! I am Franck, I live in Paris. Have have known Jean-Baptiste for almost 10 years, since high-school in France, where we were roommates ! I am just coming back from a holiday trip in New York, where I stayed in Harlem, @ JB's place. I have had a wonderful time their, sharing his amazing loft ! JB is a awesome guy, very welcoming, friendly and trustful person, and I do recommend him to all the Airbnb members !
I've known JB for 10 years. He is the ultimate host. He loves to entertain and has the style to pull it off with sophisticated grandeur. He is genuinely generous, the type of guy that will make dinner for a dozen friends and then send us off with leftovers. He is a trusted friend, with strong moral character and integrity. And as you can see from the photos, his pad is the envy of ALL of us! He has flawless taste, and not just for show... his house is as comfortable as it is beautiful. My brother has stayed there, my two best friends have stayed there... I could not more highly recommend both JB as a host and his apartment as a luxury retreat in NYC.
