We had a wonderful trip in New York, specially thanks to Rachna's apartment.
Everything is like in the photos. There was a massage chair, so cool after visiting! We took the breakfast (croissants, muffins, coffee, fruit salad, cereal, orange juice, milk...) on the rooftop, the waiter was so nice. The concierges were also really kind. The apartment got everything we need (except a coffee machine but we didn't ask before to Rachna). She put some beers in the fridge, perfect after a big day in the city. There was no curtains on the windows but it's wasn't a problem for us as who wanted to visit early.
The area is very safe and there are supermarkets, Starbucks, tourist areas and subway lines just next to the apartment.
Rachna was a very good guest, so easy to communicate with. We were lucky to meet her and her husband, they are lovely people. They gave us many advices about the area (specially an Indian restaurant... yummy!).
We highly recommend Rachna and her apartment.
Rachna´s apartment is an amazing place to stay in NYC.
We stayed here for ten days and enjoyed this time so much.
It is as beautiful as the photos and the view from the rooftop is amazing. The location was perfect for us with the subway and the easy walking distance to the Financial District, Battery Park, Staten Island Ferry, Pier 17, Brooklyn Bridge and much more.
Rachna and her husband have been a wonderful host and they were helpful in our communications.
We hope to stay next time in NYC in the same apartment in the Setai Tower !
Thank you for the great time.

Rachna was brilliant. Meticulous in every sense and more than helpful. Having heard about bad experiences from others I know who had rented other apartments on this site, I was glad to find her apartment was exactly as described. If like me you need a good shower in the morning to get you started for the day, you'll not a find a better one in the entire city. The building's rooftop is amazing and the staff in the building are extremely friendly and helpful. "Amazing Also" is an understatement.
Rachna was a fantastic host. She was always contactable, and offered very useful advice on the location of apartment, amenities around and basically anything and everything you wanted to know about NY.
The apartment was the perfect NY experience. In a great location, secure, clean and comfortable. We can't express how happy we were with our stay at Rachna's.
We highly recommend it to anyone young or old venturing to NY, the real way to experience being a New Yorker whilst on Holiday.
Merci Rachna pour nous avoir permis de séjourner pour la seconde fois dans ton splendide appartement!
Nous sommes conquis par le lieu...Cet appartement est idéalement situé dans Manhattan, accessible depuis et vers partout en transports communs. La maison possède une splendide terrasse sur le toit avec une vue à couper le souffle, un espace commun intérieur très agréable, un service de maison hors pair et très sympathique, un accès au spa dont nous n'avons pas profité par manque de temps, un petit déjeuner dans un cadre reposant et classe, bref mille fois mieux que dans un hôtel x étoiles!
Le quartier est très calme, la rue étant piétonne et sécurisée jour et nuit.
L'appartement est magnifique, je ne sais par où commencer! Le parquet de bois appelle à marcher pieds nus, le salon est lumineux grâce aux grandes fenêtres, le canapé est très grand et hyper confortable, la télévision XXL fonctionne à merveille, la cuisine est parfaite, agencée au complet, on peut même s'assoir pour y manger. La chambre possède également une grande fenêtre, une télé, mais surtout un grand lit extrêmement confortable après les nombreux km dans la ville.
Les salles de bains....que de bonheur! Une baignoire XL , deux douches, dont une "pluie de mousson", deux WC, trois lavabos...Si après cela on n'est pas propre....Juste magnifique.
La propreté du lieu est sans faille, tout reluit sans exception.
Rachna est une personne de confiance qui se soucie du moindre détail et reste toujours atteignable rapidement. Nous nous sentons reçu chez elle, c'est tellement agréable....Elle prépare pour nous notices explicatives, guides, linges de toilette, vaisselle, il ne manque rien. Elle est une hôte aussi parfaite que son appartement!
J'y retournerai encore et encore!
Rachna's New York appartment experience was amazing.
Firstly let me say that communication from go to whoa was fast and efficient.After arrival,although we didn't meet either Rachna or her husband, we were very comfortable with their ease of contact.
The appartment is in a fantastic location,easy walking distance to multiple subway lines, and nearby great pubs and restaurants.The Setai building has great security with great doorman and the appartment offers every luxury required for either a short or extended stay.
A fabulous place to stay in lower Manhattan and we would certainly stay again.Thank you Rachna and family for allowing us to experience NY from a home away from home.
Please come to Sydney!

We had an amazing experience in luxurious accommodations but even better than the amazing comfort and amenities was the tremendous hospitality shown us by Rachna. She is a delightful and thoughtful person who genuinely enjoys providing the opportunity for others to live as a New Yorker which is exactly how we felt and we loved every minute of it. The area is amazing and accessible to everything by subway and probably the safest place on earth with all the NYSE security. We were blessed to have the opportunity to stay there.
SIMPLY GREAT!! Rachna is a fantastic guest... she always reply my emails and she did everything to mke you feel like home!
The apartment is big, clean... the queen bed is really confy, the kitchen is big and modern... (Miele washdisher!!!).. the TV is AMAZING!!!
The 2 bathrooms are wondeful... the shower unbelievable!
The Setai Building is definetely a luxury choice and... don't forget that... breakfast is included... !!
100% my best experience in NYC..
Rachna is an excellent host. Unfortunately we haven't had a chance to meet her, but she's always been very kind and helpful to us.
The apartment is wonderful, not yet completely finished, but fully functional and has everything you could want or need. We loved it!
The bathroom is large and the shower very cool. The mattress is comfortable and it's great to fall asleep every night watching the lights of the city.
Remember to check the rooftop: it's breathtaking (do it at least twice: day/night.
In the lounge there is free wi-fi, a pool table and a projection room. There is also a gym, always on the same floor.
The doormen were always very kind, available at any time of day or night and we were always greeted with a smile.
The location is strategically convenient to both the East Side and the West Side.
Do not be afraid of indignatos. The area is it absolutely safe and constantly monitored by police.
The apartment is new and clean, although its not fully furnished, it has everything you would need. The bathroom is much larger and nicer than what I would get at the W hotel in NYC; I'm not necessarily claustrophobic but it was nice to find a bathroom that you can walk around in and comfortably put your make up on, instead of having an elbow jabbing against a wall and the other on the sink faucet. The bed I believe is a sort of memory foam? It was very comfortable and made me sleep like a baby every night. There is heating in the apartment, but if that's not enough to warm your toes, Rachna was very awesome to offer an extra blanket :)
Also, if you need any extra toiletries just run to the Duane reade across the street; very convenient! The metro stations are not a far walk from the building, and being downtown makes it easier to travel to either the west or east side of the city...or maybe that's just me but if you're the type to cab everywhere, there's hardly a shortage of yellow. Also, it's less than a 20 minute walk to Chinatown and the Brooklyn bridge!
The roof top is amazing as there is an indoor area that comes with a fireplace and many comfy sofa chairs. I didn't get a chance to check out the lounge but I did spot some pool tables which is a major + for me, and I would definitely love to take advantage of that during my next trip to NYC :)
I have actually rented from Rachna. Her home was immaculate and had all the linens, appliances, dishes, etc. to meet our needs. She is an extremely warm person who I feel is very trustworthy. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I hope to stay with her again in the future.
Meeting Rachna turned into one of the strangest coincidences, when I found out that we went high school together (but different years). She is a brilliant ER doctor, with an absolutely stunning penthouse space that would put most hotel suites to shame.
