"I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they do their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change." -- Jim Rohn
Dit appartement is uitstekend gelegen, buiten de drukte van de grote stad in een rustige woon wijk, met goede openbare voorzieningen. We zijn zeer welkom ontvangen door onze gastvrouw Shira. Een zeer deskundige dame die veel weet te vertellen over de buurt en de stad. Wij voelden ons erg welkom en zeer op ons gemak. Het appartement is een ruime, gezellige ruimte om te kunnen ontspannen na alle vermoeienissen na een bezoek aan de Big Apple.
Had a brilliant 6 days staying here - I would recommend Shira and Billy's apartment without hesitation! The location is so convinient for Manhattan and we found some brilliant skyline views nearby. Shira was in frequent contact, making sure we had everything we needed and offered lots of helpful local tips and recommendations. The apartment itself was clean and everything we expected - only even more spacious! Shira was also able to put us in contact with Vinh, who made travelling to and from the airport a pleasure - his knowledge of New York is incredible! I would absolutely stay here again if visiting New York. Thank you Shira, Billy and Vinh!
Voor de 2e keer is Shira haar appartement tijdens mijn reis. Weet alles perfect geregeld.
Shira is een perfecte host geweest voor ons verblijf is new york. We komen hier zeker terug als we weer naar new york komen.
Accommodation was clean and well presented, the facilities were excellent and made our stay very comfortable, overall a beautiful apartment. The location was safe and very handy for transport links to the city and airport, the facilities in the area were excellent for food and consumables, groceries etc. The host was amazing and ensured we had an outstanding vacation!!!
Experiência muito agradável nossa estadia no apartamento da Shira. Alternativa muito boa para escapar dos altos preços de Manhattan, tem ônibus disponíveis a apenas 2 quadras da casa que desembarca em Port Autority, de lá se vai facilmente de metrô para qualquer lugar.
Shira, dona do apartamento é uma pessoa muito especial. Desde as primeiras mensagens trocadas, ela fazia questão de facilitar tudo para nossa estadia. Quando a conhecemos pessoalmente, a admiração só aumentou. Ou seja, experiência maravilhosa.
Staying in Shira's apartament was a very nice experience. A great alternative to escape the high Manhattan prices, has buses available just 2 blocks from the house, and lands in Port Autority. From there, you can easily get anywhere by taking the Subway.
Shira, the owner of the apartment, is a very special person. Since the first messages were exchanged, she made sure to do everything for our stay to be the best posible. When we met in person, admiration only increased. It was a wonderful experience.
Geweldig appartement voor een verblijf in new york. Binnen 15 minuten sta je midden op times square. Appartement is helemaal compleet en zeer netjes. Ideaal voor groepen tot 6 personen.
Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar
So far Shira has been the best host we have ever had! Its not always abt the house, the host also matters, and thats wht made the stay more comfortable!
Highly recommened and Im sure this will not be my only stay with them!
Thank you Sanil!, till next time:))
I've been one week in the apartment, we were 5, 3 adults 1 kid and 1 baby. We couldn't have been in a better place, very convenient for all of us and Shira provided a lot of help on extra requirements we had for our baby.
The apartment is exactly like the pictures, very nice and spacious, the location is safe and convenient with the direct bus to Times Square. Shira was really easy to communicate with and made everything on her hand to help us. I would definitely recommend this apartment and return again.
Hope to see you guys again:)
Shira was an awesome host; everything was perfectly organized and she provided us with all the information we needed to enjoy our stay in NYC. The apartment itself was exactly as described, very clean and very well linked to the city center (12-15 mins if no traffic).
Thank you Mate:))
This was a perfect spot for our family's visit to NYC. The place is exactly as presented and very comfortable. We felt safe walking in the evenings to dinner and enjoyed two nearby Cuban restaurants (our favorites). We usually took Uber back and it was always readily available. Also, fresh squeezed orange juice each morning from the easy juicer was a real treat. Transportation to/from NYC was easy and inexpensive. It was $3 into the city and $4.50 back. I'm not sure why the difference but I wasn't complaining! Shira was great at communication. As an Airbnb host myself, I appreciated many of the small touches she provided. We will stay here again when we come back.
Thank you Glenn!!!
I was excited for the opportunity to host another Airbnb host and I was so happy to have Shira and her family as guests! I got to have a few conversations with Shira about her hosting experience and compare notes and get some advice. Her husband Billy and their two boys were also fun to talk to. Billy told me all about the medicinal uses of Cicadas, which are plentiful here at the moment, singing their wonderful song. I highly recommend Shira and family as guests - quiet, friendly, happy people and the house was in perfect condition when they left. I'd love to have them visit again!
we will be back! 3
Shira is a close personal friend and I vouch for her cleanliness, reliability and easy manner to deal with. I have no hesitations in recommending either staying at her place or having her stay at yours.
When I first met Shira, we connected instantly. Same goes for her husband Billy. I was so taken a back because personally, I usually don't click with people like that(like that, meaning on that level). I have to honestly say, I haven't met someone as genuinely nice, real and with such a positive and warm energy like her and Billy in I don't know how many years. Shira is someone who always tries to help if she can. She's someone you can count on which I'm sure is really important to most people but again, to me personally, it's been very rare to find. I'm grateful to have her in my life. I've read some of the other references just now they took the words right out of my mouth! I keep thinking, I wanted to write the SAME THING, and in some cases, I'm repeating what they said but it's only because everything they've written, is totally accurate on who she is.
I am one of Shira's clients at her skincare business, but I quickly began to view her as more of a friend than a business acquaintance. She is very professional and accommodating, while at the same time providing a personal touch to make your experience the best it can be. I know she is very excited about renting this room on airbnb and I know she will do her utmost to provide the best service possible to whomever chooses to stay with her! Shira is a trustworthy person with excellent people skills. I am sure she will make a wonderful host!!!
I've known Shira for about 25 years now. We grow up together.
Shira is a very happy and charming person.
She loves people and love to help in any way she can.
Shira always was a person that well connected to local businesses and services so
She can easy guide you where to go and where not.
You don’t need more than 2 min to fell in love.
I’m strongly recommending shira as a host.
All the best
Shira is one of my great cousins, I've known her since I was born, and since then she has always been there for me. When I was a kid, she was the one who tried to teach me how to do a headstand and a handstand... `)
Even though, I don't leave close by, I can always count on Shira's trust, on her good advises and on her honest feedback. She is one of a few people that I really can count on.
Shira always takes a good care of her friends and family. Due to Shira and her family (Billy and Nevo) my parents had a great time when they traveled to NYC last year. Shira took such a great care of them, that they are still talking about the amazing trip they had.
When I was asked to a write a reference to Shira I didn’t know where to start as there are so many and only wonderful things I can truly say about her and hers.
I fell in love with Shira, Billy (husband) and little Nevo (son) as individuals, couple and family from the first time we met thru mutual friends, about 2 years ago.
Ever since, her warm house was always open for us and we could never say NO to a great Friday nite dinner & drinks made by the amazing couple, and the fun company of little Nevo.
They are role models to me and I feel blessed to have them in my life.
I can go on and on, but I’d like to leave some room for others to share as well.
I've known Shira and Billy for about 3 years now. We met at a birthday party of a mutual friend and instantly "hit it off". Shira is super friendly, has great energy, generous and always very positive. Shira is very accommodating and a great host when she has her friends over for dinner, her house is always clean and tastefully decorated. I'm sure you'll love staying at her newly renovated 2BR apartment which is very close to Manhattan - 5-10 min by car or bus!
She lives upstairs and I'm sure she will be happy to answer any question, give recommendation etc...
Shira is the hostess with the most-est! :) Always going out of her way to make sure you are feeling comfortable and at ease! willing to make late night phone calls to assist people in need of assistance. Truly selfless! one of the last few people on the planet who are nice for nothing.
