I'm a former New Yorker, now living in Cambridge, who loves travel, reading, the theatre, writing and doing stand-up comedy!
Despite Jocelyn not being in Boston when we were there she provided perfect instructions for a great cosy apartment. Only a short walk from a subway station, couldn't really ask for anything better in the city at a price this low!
Great location, good apartment and a lovely host! The host gave very helpful tips about NYC.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay Jocelyn's apartment. It's small but for the two of us it suited perfectly. We never cooked meals as we were out taking advantage of all the great diners and cafe's in the area - they're all extremely close by. The subway is also literally 1 min walk. Highly recommended if you're traveling solo or with your partner and want to be in the heart of the LES.
*there's also a deli/mini grocer at the end of the street so daily supplies were easy to grab
The apartment is as advertised and the surroundings are great. We had a nice 10 days stay there and would go there again.
This one bedder in the heart of the Lower East Side is a gem.
Perfect location in you want to eat, drink, and shop, within walking distance from all this!
My friend and I spent 10 nights at Jocelyn's place in Lower East Side and we couldn't have asked for a better Manhattan area to stay in!
The apartment is close to loads of restaurants, bars, cafés and second-hand shopping. The subway station is very close as well so it's easy to get around all the rest of Manhattan.
Jocelyn is a very nice and easygoing person. On arrival she met us at the apartment and on the day we left she let us check-out at any time of the day. It was all very smooth. She also lent us a guidebook of New York, Time Out magazines and a handy map of Manhattan.
The apartment has most things necessary and the bed was very comfortable.
Although the apartment is in a busy area we didn't find it noisy but rather quiet. Being two girls on our own we also found the area safe.
I recommend staying at Jocelyn's place. She is so helpful and easy to get along with. She was always on hand if I needed any extra help.
The apartment is right next to the subway. There are galleries and exhibition openings all around the surrounding streets. People are mega friendly here too. I spent most of my time walking around the LES, met lots of nice people and found it to be a really safe area.
If you have a physical disability keep in mind the apartment is up two flights of stairs. The apartment has great air-con. Modern bathroom and kitchen. Secure building entry.
Overall, yes. Stay in the LES. Totally stay at Jocelyn's!
Excellent location and apartment! Photos are accurate. The host was super friendly and professional. It was my first time ever booking an apartment so I was a bit nervous. She answered all my questions right away and graciously helped me out. I would highly recommend this apartment and host!
We just spent 5 days at Jocelyn's appartment and we had a wonderful time.
Her appartment is lovely and the location is excellent. It can't be better located to visit NYC.
We would definitely come here again next time we come to NYC.
Renting from Jocelyn was definitely the right choice. She was really friendly and communicative over e-mail before we arrived and came to meet us in the apartment just after we arrived, greeting us with hugs. The apartment itself is lovely and was absolutely perfect for me and my two friends. The roof terrace is really nice and has stunning views of New York. The location of the apartment is great, situated in Greenwich Village with it's beautiful houses, boutiques and plenty of restaurants, bars and coffee shops - we can thoroughly recommend Grounded on Jane St. You're also close to East Village and Soho, which is great for a night out and with a subway stop virtually on the doorstep and lots of cabs about it's easy to get anywhere.
I would not hesitate to rent Jocelyn's apartment again in the future and will certainly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Jocelyn is an amazing guest! She let me know of her plans to arrive and kept me updated, the room was kept clean. She is intelligent and I enjoyed our conversations, highly recommend.
Jocelyn was a great guest! She left the place just as clean as she found it. I would host her again!
Jocelyn was the perfect guest. She was polite and kind, good humored and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend her to other hosts.
Lovely lady, Jocelyn! Excellent guest in every way. She left the room completely clean. Even left me nice book for gift, I was so touched by unexpected thoughtfulness!
Jocelyn was a perfect guest, respectful of my space, great attitude....recommend her to anyone
Jocelyn's a great person; always reliable, trustworthy, responsible and helpful. She goes out of her way to make sure your needs (as guests) are met and is very hospitable. Her apartment is gorgeous and the building has a rooftop with stunning views of the city. The location of this apartment is unbeatable too, right in the heart of West Village. I would highly recommend dealing with Jocelyn and subletting her beautiful apartment!!
