Hi! I lived in NYC for 20 years but now I live in TX. I work as a cooking and nutrition teacher for kids for two different non-profits. Free time is all about surfing and yoga.

Staying at David and Marika's was super cool.
When I arrived with my little furry companion (pre-approved as an exception) everything was simple and welcoming. It basically felt like staying at friends' who help you out and make you feel welcome but also completely leave you to your privacy in a very natural way.
I slept really well and deeply on a comfortable and massive bed on the loft area and my little dog was treated to a nice soft cover on the couch..
The whole apartment is kept with care and easiness, and has a strong heartwarming and peaceful identity which makes it a true small sanctuary for recharging from the city.
I was given tips and help on my small city missions, borrowed boots on the snowy days, had my small furry companion genuinely cared for and much more..
When I booked I had a good feeling about this place because of the reviews I had read, and although I would normally look for a more private situation, I felt that this treehouse-like home and David would have really welcomed us and I was right.
I would definitely recommend this sun lit home to anyone who really wishes to have a really positive experience !
David is really friendly and welcoming. You will feel comfortable very quickly. The apartement is original and quite well located, close from Central Park. It was a pleasure to meet him and Marika, his daughter.
Our stay at David's place was really nice! David and his roommate were really welcoming and gave us amazing tips what to see in the city. The apartment is also well-located: right next to the Central Park, little shops, cute cafés and interesting museums. We would definitely stay at David's place again!
We had a great time in this place, which is very well located: many restaurants and bars, 5 min walk from Central Park and from the subway.
The apartment is very nice, clean and sunny.
Last but not least: Dave is very friendly, interesting and always ready to help you.
Very happy! Got to stay in an awesome part of the city (found some yummy places to eat and places to drink within walking distance) in a really cool NY apartment. Warm and snuggly loft space after a long day sight seeing never failed to send me straight to sleep. Dave is lovely and so helpful. Only regret is that I wish I could have stayed longer. Recommended!!
Had a chance to meet Dave, his roommate and some friends. Great time!
David accepted my short reservation with last minute notice & he was a GREAT host! He went above & beyond and provided an extra space for us to stay, which proved roomier than I expected! We had a whole floor to ourselves, and TWO loft spaces because it happened to be available at the time. On top of that, he graciously worked with my schedule and allowed an early arrival and late departure. The house is beautiful, the bathroom immaculate, and the energy of the entire place was just so positive. I recommend this loft to anyone who has a desire for a peaceful and welcoming place to stay in a not always so peaceful city.
David was easy to talk to and left my apartment spotless. Highly recommended.
David married my husband and me - that should say something about our esteem for him! His apartment is in a fantastic location in NYC and highly recommended for visitors.
I have subleased from David and found him to be a most welcoming host, easy to work with, and warm in spirit. His place is well maintained and very comfortable, and is located in a great neighborhood. The space has a nice balance that can appeal to young travellers as well as older folks. Highly recommended.
david is a wonderful warm person, a father, a yogi, a musician and a fantastic chef.
the place is actually one block from mine, very well located and quiet. i am happy to recommend david as your next host when visting NYC.
