Hi, I've lived in NYC since 1999 and have a nice place in the East Village. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
A brilliant find! The apartment is small, but amazingly located in the East Village (lots of good restaurants) and has excellent views of Manhattan. James was great with replying to messages and arranged for his Mum to meet us upon arrival as he was away. The apartment was clean and tidy. Bedding and towels were provided. Advice on the area was given and help offered, should we have needed it. This apartment is very good value for money. It also has excellent air-con, which was very welcome!
james' place was great- kid friendly and ready for living- it was extremely convenient and well located. the place was clean, sunny and the view- especially in the night, was pretty magic!
I didn't meet James but his mom and a friend of him welcomed us, and gave us some great addresses in the neighborhood (which helped us a lot).
The apartment is very cosy, comfortable and clean + a fantastic view on the city! The location is perfect, astor place is only a 10 minutes walk and the line 6 takes you everywhere very easily (it crosses from south to north with many connections).
Tompkins square park is just a few minutes walk, as well as St marks place, where you have many many bars and restaurants and tattoists.
I highly recommend James' apartment and i'd love to rent it again if i come back to NYC!
We had a wonderful time staying at James' apt in Alphabet City. It has everything you need, plus an amazing view (located on the 23rd floor) of uptown Manhattan, the East river and Williamsburg. The L train is around the corner which brings you in literally 5 minutes to the centre of Manhattan or to Bedford Av, Williamsburg. Alphabet City itself is a wonderful place with lots of nice shops, bars and restaurants.
James is considerate, easy going, friendly and responsive. He, for instance, did some research for us how to get cheap Yankee tickets.
We definitely recommend and would love to visit another time in the future.
We had a great 9 days stay at James' appartment in the East Village. Comfy bed, clean and tidy place and with everything you need to make it through your stay. James were a super host!
James was wonderful --- communicative, super-easy to deal with. Place was tidy, with a great view! We were able to easily access the lower East side and all the wonderful eateries. Great place to stay, and we would definitely return!
It was a wonderful stay at James place. Since we were coming from west coast our flight landed at 2am and by the time we reached the house it was 3am and James was there to personally receive us . He is super friendly guy and a great host who took care of all our needs. He made sure everything was comfortable with us. The apt is kids friendly and since we were traveling with our 2 yrs old he didn't miss home at all. The best part is the view from the apt it was super fantastic ! We were there for 4th july weekend and we would see the fireworks from the apt !!! All the tourist attractions are less than 3/4 miles from this place. Its a pretty safe place too .I would surely recommend this apt to those who would like to stay in Manhattan and have a home like feel.
Nice, clean place. Perfect for a family.
James was very helpful.
The apartment and host were wonderful. The host was exceptionally great in being prompt with replies and exceptionally helpful in helping me arrange using his apartment! The apartment is located in a wonderful area and the view was great. Thanks!
What a great family, we loved hosting them!
