Ben and Kim were great--communicative, Kim even gave us a quick tour when we arrived, etc. The place was centrally located, so we could walk to city park for the festival, and uber anywhere (french quarter, frenchman st, garden district, bywater) in 15 min. Would stay here again.
Ben, our host was great! He had a list of his favorite places to eat and drink plus shops and more. He even answered our plea for help when we were logging on to wifi. Perfect NY style apt with wifi and some seriously awesome coffee! Everything we needed and more. Clean, comfortable, and easily accessible from multiple subway stops. Close to everything including great restaurants, cheap eats, and more bars than you can shake a stick at. I'll be back!
Great location and a big apartment. Ben worked with me beforehand to ensure that my stay was effortless. Everything was clean and ready to go when I got there. Felt like home, even though I was far far away.
We had 2 couples spending New Years Eve in NYC and could not have asked for a better place. The apartment was clean and comfortable, a perfect fit for four people. It had everything that we needed. Most important is the location of the apartment! It is located in the middle of the east village and walking distance to everything. There is a ton of bars, restaurants, and shops on the same street. We were even able to walk to our NYE reservations as the lounge was only 2.5 blocks away. Even though we didn't get to meet Ben in person, he was a wonderful host. He contacted me almost immediately after my inquiry and was very responsive for any questions I had about the neighborhood. Great neighborhood, great apartment, great times. I would highly recommend a stay at Ben's East Village apartment to anyone.
We really enjoyed our stay in the East Village. The apartment is very well located with a great choice of bars and restaurants. With Ben being an architect, the space is very well decorated and stylish. It is a perfect choice for a couples weekend getaway but also sleeps 4 if needed. Ben was very easy to deal with and even left a bottle of wine for us to enjoy on arrival which was a nice way of making us feel welcome in his home.
guest was great
Great guest! Good communication. Left the apartment in perfect order. I wish more guests are like him. You are welcome any time!
Ben and his party, six in all, were awesome guests. Admittedly, one gets a little nervous about the adequacy of an accomodation when the whole crew are architects, but the group was very curious about the 1928 house and very friendly. They left us gourmet treats and clean dishes, another symptom of their thoughtfulness. I truly hope they come back, ideal guests. Thank you!!
Ben and his guest were totally great! He was easy to correspond with and was very clear about expectations and interests. We set plans for coming and going and he and his guest left my rental clean and tidy! I would absolutely rent to Ben again.
Ben and his group were great! I unfortunately did not get to personally meet them but they were very clean and respectful during their stay. Thanks so much to all of you and please, come back anytime! :)
Ben and his wife were friendly and courteous. They were prompt with their communication and they left our place spotless. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Ben & his friends were very friendly. We communicated well together. They left the appartement in perfect condition. I would recommend them any time !
Ben's place is the perfect for a NYC Getaway. It's conveniently located in the East Village on popular St Marks Place with tons of eateries, bars, cafes and shopping. His apartment is stylishly decorated (he and his wife are both architects), inviting, comfortable for lounging, and has everything you need for your stay. Ben is super friendly and chill and will always be available to help you out! Check his place out for your next visit to NYC.
