We arrived in Manhattan on the 23rd December 2014 and stayed for 15 nights. On arrival Joe came down and met us and helped us upstairs, showed us around and told us about the neighbourhood and transport etc. Tea, coffee and all basics were available including some wine, a lovely touch! I have stayed in upper west side before but much preferred this apartment and location. The apartment was perfect and the views are stunning! Very safe and everyone extremely friendly. Did not want to leave!!!Jo also called to make sure everything was ok throughout our stay, fabulous. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME!!
Val and Jo went out of their way to make us feel welcome even giving us a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate new year.
The apartment was as advertised and provided a great base from which to go exploring. We were really close to Times Square and all of the NYE celebrations. We had a great time. John and Deb.
Jo of Val and Jo met us at the building and helped with a difficult parking situation. Apartment was as advertised...and better. Very comfortable with panoramic view to the west. Would definitely stay here again, especially for upper west side activities!
Bill happy to have you anytime! And so glad we were able to get you a parking spot so you wouldn't have to pay for a garage!
We absolutely loved our stay at Valerie and Joe's apartment on the UWS. The neighborhood was fantastic, and everyone we met was friendly and helpful. The skyline views from the living room and bedroom were amazing - how often can you be in NYC and have the view of the water? Val and Joe were also great to work with - great communication, we met at check in and had all questions answered, and they were readily available if anything came up during our stay. I would recommend staying here to anyone - everything eye experienced was exactly as advertised if not better. Thank you guys so much, I hope to visit again soon!
Val and Jo were great with their communication and getting us settled in their apartment. Everything was just as pictured; comfortable couch and bed, quiet apartment with a great view! Minutes to the subway station and near a nice park and residential area. We didn't have any problems and enjoyed our stay! Thanks Val and Jo!
My wife and I stayed in Val and Jo's apartment for 10 nights. Everything was absolutley perfect. We arranged early check in at an additional cost of $50 for the maid. The apartment was exactly as per the listing. Great place, very comfortable and great location for exploring NYC. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again when visiting this great city.
Thanks Val and Jo for your lovely hospitality.

A fantastic place to stay! The views are absolutely spectacular and the apartment is very true to the photos- it is gorgeous. Very good location with easy access to the subway and walking to Times Square. The blow up bed was very comfortable, and still left plenty of lounge room space for 3 of us. Val and Jo were lovely and very helpful ensuring we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend this very highly, and would happily stay here again.
THIS IS THE PLACE. Joe & Val were very nice, friendly and caring. They've thought of everything... even umbrellas by the door for you in case it rains. It is just like the pictures only better... clean, organized, great decor. (I would love to live here) 1 and 1/2 bathrooms in NYC... seriously?! (Amazing!) The location is perfect... On the Upper West Side (casual, hip, relaxing neighborhood) in the best part of the city without all the hustle and loud sirens. The apt. has a panoramic view (from the living room and the bedroom) of the Hudson River and New Jersey. The view was such a treat and so relaxing to watch the sunset. Also Hudson River Park - a beautifully maintained waterfront recreation area - is literally right out the front door of the building. It's perfect for early morning or evening walks. The building is less than a 10 min. walk to the subway, but there is also a shuttle if you'd rather take that. I highly recommend this place... it's the complete package, really top notch!
Val and Jo were waiting for our arrival. When we arrived, they showed us the apartment and they had prepared 2 empty drawers for our clothes. They informed us about the building and the neighbourhood (supermarket, means of transport, etc).
The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures of AirBnB, really cosy and with a marvellous view. There was noise from the road, when the windows were open. But there was no need to open the windows, because there is a well functioning A/C. We opened the windows because we needed to have fresh air every day.
The neighbourhood felt safe and was full of families, children and people running and riding bikes. The Riverside Park under the road is a great place to walk, read a book and relax. It was like being residents of the city!
Val & Jo provided a fantastic apartment for us to stay in with our five year old. Just a 9 minute walk from Times Square and 7 minute walk to the nearest subway station (with the 5 year old), we were in the action right from the word go. If that's too much of a walk for anyone, the bus stop is right across the road, delivering you to the subway station.
The apartment was the perfect size for us, and the grocery store just across the street meant we could easily take care of our own breakfasts in the apartment and take lunch with us when we wanted (website hidden) met us and settled us into the apartment after 1am after we'd been travelling for 25 hours - we really appreciated his friendliness and the fact that this time of night wasn't any trouble.
The views from the apartment are fantastic - from the Empire State Building, across mid-lower Manhattan and out over the Hudson.
Everything we needed was in the apartment, and there is a well appointed laundry room in the building as well.
We would definitely look to stay here again when we return to New York - this apartment was clean, air conditioned, secure, helped with the holiday budget, and had a significantly positive impact on our stay here. Thanks Val & Jo!
Really nice people to have as guests. They are really kind and polite, and have left the apartment clean and tidy as it was their own. Hope to host you again some time! :)
Valerie and Joseph were amazing guests who were very respectful, extremely courteous and they also left the apartment clean. I had fun hanging out with them the last day they are wonderful people. I would definitely recommend them to anyone hosting. Communicating with them was very easy. They are always welcome to stay with me again.
Valerie & Joseph were a pleasure to have at our apt. They left the place clean and treated our home like it was their own. We'd have them back anytime!
Valerie and her husband Jo are lovely, fun, communicative ! They were, simply put, the most pleasant of guests, and left the apartment in pristine conditions : I certainly loved that bit too ! I would be really glad to have them back here as guests.
