I'm in film and theatre and my husband, David, is a writer and teacher. We think NY is just peachy but also love exploring the rest of the world!
Staying with Purva and David was what i expected the apartment was in a great location and the apartment was fab as it was as described in the pictures. It was clean and safe as it has a doorman and great for getting to and from places in New York as it had a subway around the corner as very safe for coming back at night with the most fantastic grocery store!
Purva was purrfect and David has a great sense of humor! They were great host there when you need something or just for a chat but also let you have your own space too. So staying with them was bargain as it was just across from central park is really quite a steal!

I've been in apartment for 5 days.
Purva and David are great hosts. They are cheerful and friendly couple :-)
The apartment is cozy and have a good location. Just 15 minutes by subway to downtown.
I'll be glad to be their guest again for next time.
I would suggest this place for anyone! We met Purva and her husband the first night, but they left early for their flight. They were friendly and welcoming, and left the place clean for us.
The place was perfect for myself and one other friend, they had an air mattress that they let us use, and we cooked in their kitchen some times, which was equipped with everything we needed for the simple meals we made.
It took us about half an hour on average to get to times square from their place, but we gave ourselves 45 minutes to an hour, to make sure we weren't late for anything. Sometimes we left extra early and meandered through the park before getting on the subway.
There was free parking on the street, but I opted for a parking garage, which was 12 dollars a night. Not bad for NYC. The neighborhood didn't worry me, even though we returned late on a few occasions.
What an enjoyable stay!!!
Purva and David are a delightful couple. We enjoyed our stay with them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend their home. There are fantastic restaurants near and we felt very safe and comfortable venturing out at night. If you are going to NYC consider visiting Central Park Oasis and meeting a lovely couple.
Es un excelente lugar para quedarse en Nueva York, La estación del metro queda a unos pasos del edificio y los anfitriones son verdaderamente amables. Lo recomiendo sin duda alguna
The apartment looks just like the photo. The bedroom is really nice and had all the essentials. Purva and David were very flexible and helped me navigate the neighborhood and subway. The location was ideal because I had an event just around the corner at ST. John the Divine and the subway is right there too. I was only there for a couple of nights and really found it a find. If you are fussy about sharing a bathroom or having the bathroom be luxurious this won't be your kind of place. However it is totally adequate. The place is safe and clean and the hosts are ideal.
Todo perfecto, a 1 minuto de central park y con parada de metro prácticamente en la puerta del edificio. Anfitriones encantadores y dispuestos a ayudar en todo momento. Muy tranquilo, nunca hubo problemas en cuanto a ruidos, baño, cocina, etc
Such a sweet cute couple. Pretty much anything we needed was offered. They interacted with us as much as we wanted. We went during the snow storm. They gave us gloves, an umbrella, even offered us coats. You can't go wrong if you stay here. The bed was very comfortable on top of all that..
We enjoyed our stay with Purva and David. They were both very nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the apartment was very relaxing. It was nice after a busy day to come "home" to the Upper West Side. David and Purva made us feel very welcome.
Purva and David are very friendly and welcoming hosts! Nothing was too much trouble for them; I only needed to ask. They helped me out a few times with electrical items and in making arrangements for transfers to the airport, etc.
The kitchen was well organised; TV in my room; the double bed was very comfortable............... a welcoming retreat to relax in each evening after hectic days doing New York!!
Very nice pleasant chatty couple.
Purva and her place are amazing. Great design, fantastic kitchen, great location right by the park and the subway. She and her man are great hosts--as new yorkers and artists they know everything about the city. They're very open but also respectful of space and privacy. I can't imagine a better place to stay!
