Great location and a wonderful stay! Quality restaurants, cafe's, boutiques and subway all very close by. Beautiful street and neighbourhood. Karene was in touch in advance, very helpful and made the arrival extremely easy - also touching base during my stay to make sure all was well. Thanks again Karene - a fantastic place to stay in NYC!
Our stay at Karene's apartment was perfect! The place is cosy and warm, even during cold nights, the bed very comfy and the blanket super soft and warm too.
Karene has been a great host, always available by phone and super reactive when necessary.
The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and have breakfast.
Definitely a place to stay for a good trip in NYC.
There's no place like home but Karene's apartment runs a very close second. The location is brilliant; just around the corner from the best boutique shopping strip in nyc and dozens of great restaurants . And, when you're done eating and shopping, you'll find the apartment a comfy, cosy, home away from home.
I am so glad you enjoyed yourself. Thank You for the suggestion too ! It is a great idea :)
Wonderful stay at Karene,s. Apartment offered everything I needed during my stay. The area has so much to offer and never ran out of places to eat and things to do. Karene was always available and responsive. This was my second stay and will definitely stay again
This was our first time staying at a airbnb listing and the experience was extremely positive.The listing was just as described and Karene was a terrific host who settled us in and supplied all the essentials of apartment living in a truly comfortable, clean, and well designed space. Since our stay was quite long we were traveling with more luggage than normal and the apt had more than sufficient closet and drawer space for our things.
We are familiar with quite a few different neighborhoods in Manhattan and can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay
in the West Village this time. It is filled with wonderful eating establishments and shops and it is also convenient walking distance to so many other interesting neighborhoods. Karene's apt. is in the perfect location to take advantage of all that the West Village has to offer.
My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend this listing
to our friends and we would love to return there for another visit
in the future. Thanks Karene
I had a wonderful stay at Karene's apt. It's super located, in the heart of West village. The apt is very spacious, bright and cosy. Stayed 6 weeks and everything worked fine. And Karene is a wonderful host. Hope to come back to Karene's apt in my next vacations in NYC.
Fantastic apartment in the heart of Greenwich Village. Very clean and comfortable, less than five minutes from the subway. It has a communal terrace with wonderful views. Karene was a perfect hostess. Thanks Karene.
Karene was great. Easy to contact, gave me the full lowdown on the local area and even, very sweetly, left a lovely bottle of wine as welcome. The apartment was amazing. In the heart of Greenwich Village, just off Bleeker Street - at the end where all the boutiques are - and just round the corner from the incredible cupcakes of Magnolia Bakery. The apt. was cool and airy even though the weather was scorching in New York and really quiet despite being in the heart of the village. Can't recommend it, and Karene, highly enough!
This is my first time in NYC and I love Karene's apartment. It was very clean, spacious, bright with natural light and very cozy like home. I stayed here for one month and I had no problem with the apartment at all - the bathroom, the kitchen - everything worked just fine. The location is great too. Close to everything with lots of great restaurants near by. I can walk to my school on fifth avenue very easily and the subway just mins away. Very convenient. Karene is a wonderful host. She met up with me on the first day to showed me around the apartment and gave me list of places to check out. She was very easy to communicate, very helpful and always accessible. She kept in touch with me during my stay to make sure that I have a comfortable stay in her apartment. I had to extend my stay for one night on a very short notice and she made it possible. Thank you so much Karene for all your help. Very appreciated :) I will definitely stay here again when I come back to NYC.
Karene is a very thoughtful host. Because we had stayed with her a few years ago and had a good experience, she FedEx'd her keys to us because we would be arriving to her apartment after a long tour of Israel and didn't know what time we would arrive. That's going the extra mile and it was very much appreciated. Her apartment is immaculate and very comfortable and it's in a great neighborhood. Our son and his family live a few blocks away so it was very convenient. We visit often and know the neighborhood and the great restaurants that are literally around the corner on Hudson.
There's windows in every room including two in the bathroom so it's very cheerful and a good place to be.
Just a FYI for future guests, the laundry is located in the basement (which is very common). You need to walk down the stairs outside between the buildings. Fortunately I did my wash after a rainstorm and not during. The steps were wet and I just walked carefully. This was not a deal breaker and truly a New York experience for this suburbanite.
Pleasure dealing with Karene - easy going and friendly.
Karene is a great lady. Always available to help and give advice.
She is a great neighbor. Very considerate and thoughtful.
Always taking care of her home and our lovely building.
Has a beautiful, sunny, clean and very comfortable apartment. Well furnished and laid out. Karene knows her neighborhood very well and can make all kinds of suggestions.
Karene is the most honest and generous person, I know and I lucked out when she moved into my neighborhood. Her apartment is a big sunny oasis in the heart of the West Village. Plus Karene, knows all the hot spots, where to go, what to wear, who to see, and she speaks French and Hebrew to boot! I've stayed in her apartment, you will have everything you need!
Very lovely apt. Great location, very clean, spacious and airy. Perfect for a trip to NYC. Karene knows everything about the city- has lots of great ideas for restaurants, bars, shops, sight seeing, great runs, bike rides and just about anything you can think of.
