I have been living in New York since 96' and love this city!! I travel a lot and with airbnb's help it gives me more freedom than ever before.
Perfect location to visit NYC !
Perfect Communication with Phillip that solved all our doubts and question1
The right place wher to stay visiting NYC in a nice area
Philip was a great host and very accommodating especially when I needed to modify my stay at the last minute. While i didn't meet him in person, our correspondence over messaging and phone conversations was very pleasant. His apartment has a lot of character and a pleasure to stay at. Its location can't be beat. Steps from really great eateries, and shops. I highly recommend the Grey Dog for good food and casual beers; also Cafe Gitane had a very tasty breakfast.
Phillip was a great host! The apartment is truly quiet and in a great location.
My sister and I had a great stay at Philip's. The flat is cozy, functional and in a great location. Philip was a great host: on time for check-in and made check-out very easy. We definitely recommend his place and look forward to staying there again.
Philip was great and easy to work with!
Lo mejor es su ubicación, por estar en un barrio con mucha vida y tener 5 líneas de metro justo al lado. El piso es como en las fotos, tiene de todo y está perfecto. Phillip nos ayudó mucho con todas las dudas que nos surgieron y nos proporcionó muy buenas sugerencias. Totalmente recomendable!!!!
Philip has a great apartment in a very good location, and with a subway station nearby. The apartment is neat, clean, and looks great. I not only recommend it but would be interested in staying there again next time I'm in New York.
Departamento muy bien ubicado, limpio y cómodo, y con espacios amplios para los habituales en Manhattan. Gary fue puntual tanto en nuestra llegada como en nuestra partida y se puso a disposición para ayudarnos si lo necesitábamos, lo que no fue necesario. Definitivamente lo recomendaría y volvería.
Lo califiqué con cuatro estrellas por no tener lavar ropas, sino sería cinco estrellas.
The apartment is exactly how he describes: cozy, comfortable, quiet, very well located and near by all kind of things to do. We spend a good time in NY and I really recommend it!
Thanks Phillip for everything!
It was my first "airnb" experience so I can't compare. Anyway, i can just say that Phillip is very reliable, he answered quickly each time and was very friendly. The flat is quiet and the bed is comfortable, just a lack of lights but it is in New York... In the area you have 3 differents metro so you can go wherever you want, and if you prefer you can walk it is ever better. It is very safe and full of restaurants and shop, and a good supermarket (whole food market). Mottsu restaurant, just in front of is just delicious ! It was my fourth time in NY and everyone has his own taste, but for me SoHo is from far the best area in NY specially if it is for visiting the city. I spent a lot of time in airnb before choosing this flat and I made a good choice i think. To finish, renting a flat is much less expensive than a hotel, and you also fell you more in the city. I will book again this flat with pleasure
Pour les français vous pouvez réserver cet appartement en toute confiance, il est super bien placé que ce soit pour le quartier (SoHo est au top), Phillip est très cool, fiable, et répond vite.
You couldn't find a better place to stay for the perfect time in New York, or rent from a better guy. Right in the heart of Nolita, it's surrounded by more shopping, dining and eye candy than you can possibly imagine. We've been friends for a long time and I couldn't recommend him or his place more. try it , I think you will definitely like it.
My husband and l are from Melbourne Australia and we stayed in Phillip's apartment Oct.2011 for eight nights. After being cancelled twice by other owners, 5 days before travel, we were lucky enough to secure this absoulutely wonderful apt. in Mott St. The neighbourhood is simply the best, authentically NYC..apt.'s, galleries, coffee shops, supermarkets, subways close, everything and more that you could possibly need.. and want. We even found an Aussie Bar in the next street to watch the Grand Final. (magic) The apartment is perfect for a NYC stay..Bed was magnificent, there is an air conditioner, everything you need in the kitchen and a great shower. Another plus is that it is only one very short flight of stairs up. Phillip was a blessing. He was contactable, he was waiting for us when we arrived - patiently, as shuttle buses can turn out to be lenghthy rides! He allowed us to store our luggage until our departure (which was after 11am) and he arrived on time to inspect the apartment and refund us the deposit..We had NO problems at all. We also liked and trusted Phillip very much, As we were cancelled twice, we were very apprehensive, but he assured us he would NOT cancel and of course he didn't. We loved his cooler than cool apt. exploring Soho and being so accessible to everything in NYC. We plan another trip 2013 and hope that Phillip's apt. is available.
Phillip's the best! I’ve been friends with him for over ten years now, and I can’t recommend him enough as a home renter, photographer, friend—you name it. He’s the always-got-your-back guy: dependable, smart, outgoing, helpful, creative, funny. And his apartment is one of those perfect NYC places you'd never let go of because it has everything you want: Just the right amount of space that’s clean, quiet, cool and homey, designed with his eye and art. And it’s in one of *the* cutest areas in the city, perfect for strolling around the cafes, galleries and shops and at the heart of some other amazing neighborhoods and a few subway stop hubs. Basically, Phillip is great and his place is the perfect home base for a fab, fun New York stay.
I've house-sat a night or two in Phillip's smart apartment. It's in the coolest neighborhood the city has to offer as far as I'm concerned. There's so very much to do and see right outside the front door. The best shopping, crazy-delicious eats, fun watering holes – one doesn’t really need to venture far and it’s close to SO many subways if you do. His apartment exhibits his hip NYC aesthetic in everything from decor to furnishing choice to art and general atmosphere. It's totally cozy with all the comforts one needs in a home. From the chunky shelving and naturally lit bedroom to the gorgeous photography and large dreamed-of-in-NYC tub: you'll remember it fondly.
I've known Phillip for about 10 years. I was his art director and then we became good friends because we had similar interests and it was just easy to be around him. He's a decent, honest and loyal AND hard working guy, and I'd have no trouble recommending him for any project or endeavor.
Phillip's adorable apartment is great for renter's wanting to attain the authentic "New York experience." Furnished with old style wood and vintage furniture, it is cozy and modest while entirely comfortable and accommodating. There is also much to look at as the walls are lined with photography and books. And of course, the apartment is perfectly located in the heart of downtown Manhattan - strategically located on an extremely quiet street, yet steps to Broadway, shopping, eating and New York bars.
I know first hand that Phillip is always concerned about the well being of his renters,; always on time, very reliable, and very clean!
I've known Phillip for 20 years. Although I have been on Airbnb longer, Phillip has been successfully renting his apartment when he travels for far longer than I have. I have learned a great deal about providing guests superior hospitality and accomodation, from seeing his approach over the years. His guests love him. They also love his very cool New York pad, which is particularly cool because they get to be surrounded by his and others' amazing photography and art. Beyond his talent for providing guests with an awesome NYC experience, he is one of the most gifted photographers anywhere. He also knows the best that New York City has to offer visitors and is a terrific source of local information.
