We absolutely loved Dara's apartment, the location was phenomenal. There were so many great bars, restaurants and delis around the apartment, it was fantastic. There's good cable and wifi too but you won't really use it too much as you will be out enjoying the village
Really great location to stay in New York and the place was perfect. Wanted a base outside of usual time square and with subway only a block away getting into Broadway for shows was really easy. House had everything we needed and really neat and tidy. Would definitely stay here again when we are next back in New York!
We really enjoyed our stay at Dara's apartment. The location is fantastic in the middle of a great neighborhood and great access to transit. The apartment was wonderful with an updated kitchen and bath. The large living room was perfect for putting our feet up between sojourns. Street noise a little high but not really an issue. Could also use a toaster or toaster oven
We had the best time in New York, and in big part due to such a wonderful place to stay! Dara's apartment is beautiful and in the heart of the Wet Village. It's the perfect spot if you're going to see a lot of New York. The subways are super close which was awesome with all the walking we did, and there were so many food choices...I think we ate at Joes Pizza like 5 times...half the time we were sober- the other half we were not- which leads me to also say there is tons of awesome little hangouts around ;) The bed was amazingly comfy, and I am picky! I could have spent weeks wandering the West Village, alone. Such a beautiful part of the city and the PERFECT part to stay in. Dara herself was also so, so helpful with my 1,000 questions and concerns- from helping clarify real cabbies and drivers who trick you into spending a lot of money (that happens- watch out!) to telling us the place with the best views for our anniversary dinner. It was a perfect trip :)
We had an absolutely fantastic time staying at Dara's apartment and enjoying Manhattan for 2 weeks. Dara was away when we arrived but she had organised a simple way for us to pick up the key. The apartment looks exactly as it does in the pictures on airbnb and it is roomy and comfortable. The bed as many others have commented was particularly big and comfortable and so were the lounge chairs. I took ages choosing an area to stay in New York and I am so glad we chose this area and Dara's place in particular.
The apartment is really close to two main subway stations and this means you can basically get anywhere you want so easily. Definitely use the subway! It felt very safe at all times day and night- I felt safer here than on Sydney public transport. It is also really cheap and your metro card can be used on buses too.
There are so many fantastic places to eat right outside your door. The area was lovely, interesting and very safe. I was really glad not to be up near Times Square. We travelled all over Manhattan and this was definitely the best place to be. It definitely had a village feel with lots of families living in the area. The area comes to life over the weekend with a bit of street noise but this was all happy sounds and didn't go on too late.
The Wifi worked very well. We were there in September and it was quite hot. However the aircon in the apartment kept the temperature very comfortable. We didn't actually do any cooking while we were there. I noticed other people saying this and I thought that we would use the kitchen but honestly there are so many options for meals that we just didn't need to. However the kitchen was big enough that this would definitely be possible.
The bathroom was fine and the main room was certainly big enough for a couple with lovely light coming in through the two big windows. One of the best things about Dara's apartment was the Prodigy Coffee shop directly below. They made great coffee similar to the way Australian's have their coffee. We asked for a coffee card and had our coffee there every morning of our stay! We did try coffee in a few other places but we found it quite unpleasant.
If we get a chance to return to New York we would definitely stay in Dara's apartment.
Dara`s apartment was great. The location is just unbeatable. There are a lot of good restaurants and bars in the nearest neighborhood. Meatpacking, Soho, East village and little Italy are easy accessible by foot. The apartment is very spacious, beautiful and clean. My friend and I felt very comfortable. Dara made the arriving and departing so convenient. I can recommend this apartment to anyone.
Dara's apartment was just lovely. Its spacious and bright, lovely and quiet and the bed was so comfortable. The location was brilliant and I loved my stay. A true home away from home. I would stay again in a heartbeat!
An absolute gem of an apt. a clean and classic ny apt right in the heart of the West village. The location couldn't be better. Restaurants and bars on your doorstep (literally) and only minutes from subway, soho, 6th ave. A/c kept the apt cool and it was surprisingly quiet. Dara made the booking/meeting very easy and was great to deal with.
My partner and I had such an amazing time at Dara's apartment, really comfortable, contains everything you need, great coffee shop downstairs and restaurants and bars only a short walk away. Subway stop is less than a 5 min walk and so much to see and do all within walking distance of the West Village. It really is the best location. We would recommend it to anyone.
Dara's apartment is absolutely fabulous and I can't recommend it highly enough. The location is one of the best in NYC, the West Village is like New York meets Paris and you have everything right at your door stop. It's also close to two subway stops. The apartment was warm and cosy and fairly large for a nyc one bedder. Dara was a pleasure to deal with and always on hand if we had any questions or issues. I really hope we'll be back again soon!
Very recommended guest! Dara's brother stayed at our apartment for a week and left it in a perfect condition. He is a very nice and responsible person and we would love to host him again any time.
