Joelle's place is amazing, the location is perfect, near to Central Park, MET and 86th street Metro Station. Joelle gave us a perfect guide about neighbourhood where there are perfect restaurants, shopping places. You can find everything you need at Joelle's place, even more than expected.
My 17 year old daughter and I had a great stay. What you see is what you get..a small one bedroom flat. Joelle was excellent with her communication, once I expressed interest in booking the flat. She was not available when we checked in, which we knew in advance. We had a small glitch with check in, though it was no fault of Joelle's. The reason I share this is that when I contacted her regarding the glitch, she was immediately responsive and the situation was resolved within minutes. The apt was a bit cluttered, but is was clean. We lived like true New Yorkers for 5 days and we loved it. Joelle had 3-4 umbrellas available, plenty of bags for the grocery store and blankets and pillows. My daughter sat out on the fire escape and people watched for several hours. The air conditioner is a window unit with remote control which worked very well. I was concerned that it wouldn't reach the bedroom, but she had two fans and an air cleaner in the bedroom and the room was stayed nice and cool. Joelle also had several food recommendations which were spot on. We actually got to be friends with Tracy the waitress at Genesis, the restaurant near by. If you got to Genesis, make sure you tell Tracy, Angela and Robyn from St. Louis sent you. She was very kind, friendly and full of great information. The transportation from Joelle's is VERY EASY. However, I highly recommend you study it prior to your visit. Joelle recommended a car service to use back and forth from the airport, which was easy and very reasonable. I accidentally broke Joelle's full length mirror. I bought a replacement at the hardware store in the neighborhood. I let her know I broke the original and found a replacement and she thanked me for letting her know and getting the replacement. She was thanked me for letting her know and purchasing the replacement. Otherwise, we did our best to leave the apt as we found it. We will book this again when we return to NYC.
Highly recommend staying with Joelle at her place. I stayed in the Standard High LIne Hotel before I checked in with her, and truthfully I slept better and felt genuinely more looked after at hers! She's a real pro at being an Airbnb host. She's thought of everything from phone rechargers and water purification systems to goodies for her guests. She was so knowledgable and eager to help me get the best of New York City. .....And she's a lot of fun :-)
Appartement parfait, idéalement situé. Accueil très chaleureux et serviable, Joëlle est toujours disponible. Connectivité totale grâce au WIFI etc...
Quartier génial et animée 3 rue de Central Park et du Métro...
Un merveilleux séjour, je recommande pour deux trois personnes max..
All was great and very near (by foot) from Central Park, the Gugghenheim and the Met. The subway and the 6 line very easy to go every where in NYC.
I warmly recommend this location (but not for family with a young child I think).
Joelle is an adorable person .
Response from Joelle:
Thank you, Claire, you and your family were great guests. I completely agree that it's not the best flat for young children, it is definitely not baby or toddler proof by any means.
Had a great time! The location is great and the flat was lovely!!
Joelle was great and was always available for queastions!
This was a great location. Everything nearby and transportation easliy accessible. The apartment was small but well laid out and comfortable - and suprisingly quiet for a place which looks out over a major traffic street.. For us, personally, it was wonderful to be within a couple of blocks of our daughter's apartment. I recommend using Joelle's laundry service which was phononemal and very reasonable. I thought that Joelle was a charming hostess and communication with her was excellent. She left very explicit instructions and information which wad very helpful and she left us a "welcome package" of treats which we enjoyed. I would definitely stay here again.
Joelle is a great host! Initially I booked the room for a week but then I ended up extending it for almost a month. I felt at home! You will be hosted in the HEART of the Upper East Side (86th and 2nd) that is one of the best location in the city (I noticed Airbnb now names this area Yorkville which may be misleading cause nobody else names it that way!), close to a lot of shops, restaurants, subway and bus stops...and Central Park too! The room you will have is cozy as the whole apartment is and Joelle will provide you with everythnig you need included a lot of smart advises to get the best from NYC. I definitely will book again with her next time that I need a warm and cozy place to stay and a friend with whom have fun with!
Joelle is a great hostess and very helpful. She always responded very quickly to my requests. She was very pleased with me on solving a little problem with my reservation before. The apartment was very functional and clean. The bedding was comfortable. The location is great and the neighborhood as well. The flat is close to the Central Park and museums (e.g. Guggenheim and MET). I would definitely recommend staying here.
I had a great time at Joelle's place. She was a really great host. Everything was prepared for me, when I arrived.
When ever I had questions she was always there to answer it. She also gave me lots of good advices where to go or to eat, or what transportation I should use. I really had a great time in New York also thanks to Joelle.
The apartement is located in a very nice neighborhood in the upper east side. The metro is just a few blocks away and the bus station just outside the apartement.
I liked it so much at her place so I stayed for another week.
I definetly would recomend staying at Joelles place!
Joelle was the cleanest guest Ive had! She was also really great and nice to meet and talk with. I hope she moves here so we can hang out :) haha
But seriously, great guest. Would definitely welcome back.
Joelle was a lovely guest, and very kind to boot. She left everything as she found it—you could hardly tell she was here! I'd host her again in a heartbeat.
joelle is a delightful guest! she was clean, communicative, and fun to be around! she is welcome back in my home anytime!
Joelle is a very conscientious and respectful guest... left the Nelson house immaculate! Thanks Joelle!!
It was an absolute pleasure to have Joelle stay with me. She’s really amiable, interesting, easy going, …and also good fun! She has beautiful manners, and was very respectful, tidy and clean. I am so grateful for all the great advice she gave me on Airbnb, being a host herself, and how to do it really well. She is welcome back to 3 Victoria Terrace anytime, and next time she should stay longer :-)
Joelle has been one of our fqavorite guest, left the place clean and was easy & fun to communicate and make arrangements with. We happily recommend her!
Joelle contacted me the evening before I was leaving for India. A place she was staying hand;t worked out and she needed a place in a hurry. She arrived as I was doing some final packing. We had a rather quick chat if not altogether present chat. It was early and I was ticking off my list in my head. She seemed lovely and I was very happy to have her stay. We exchanged some emails during her stay which reinforced my opinion. I'm still away but I can attest to that she is reliable, lovely, trustworthy, friendly, independent and a guest you'd love to have.
Joelle has been very uncomplicated and reliable. It was very nice to have her as a guest! To make her really happy just make sure you provide more than one pillow and plenty of towels :) any time again! It was a pleasure! Thank you!
Quirky & interesting with a hectic schedule! Glad Joelle made it this far North and managed to have some me time!
Joelle stayed in my flat when I was away.
Unfortunately I couldn't not meet her but she was very friendly and easygoing by email.
She also looked after my house very well.
