Our stay was amazing!
the apartment is very well furnished and super confortable.
Levi was impecable with everything!
We (4 persons) spent 10 days in Levi´s appartment. It´s a great place to stay. The appartment was clean, spacious, very comfortable. We liked the way Levi furnished his appartment. The neighbourhod is great and the subway is two streets away. There´s not sufficient space to have a meal with more than 2 persons (who ever prefers to cook in the appartment).
Levi was very friendly, very nice reception when we arrived, he gave us recommandations for restaurants etc. He obviously was very keen on giving us a good accommodation.
We definitely would like to come back again.

The appartment is great, very nice decoration and Levi is very a serious person.
The's only two negative points: no elevator for 5 levels and no heating (it was freezing) because the weather changed too rapidly and it was too short to activate.
Our party of four had a great stay in Levi's apartment. It is really exactly as pictured and is pretty comfortable, great for sleeping and plenty of room to relax at the end of the day etc. Not necessarily perfect if you were planning on cooking at the apartment as dining area is not that large...but it didn't matter to us as we ate out the entire time. Levi very agreeable and organised, Great area close to good subway lines. Very accessible for all of manhattan and brooklyn.
We loved Levis little nest above the street, great air con, great decor (although my teenage daughter found all the pics of gorgeous guys a bit much, I loved them!)
Good location for getting downtown to the village etc and great food, near the Highline. All in all a great stay.
And Levi is the nicest guy!
Seriously everything the other reviews said were true. This place is fantastic...it's quiet, comfortable, clean, good location, and Levi is incredibly nice. I've stayed at many apartments in NY and this was definitely my best experience so far. Thanks Levi!
The host canceled my reservation 107 days before arrival.
I'm not sure which to praise more - Levi or his apartment?! The place is in a fantastic location very close to Meatpacking District and Highline and ideally placed in Midtown between central tourist attractions such as 42nd street, Times Square etc and walkable to pretty much anywhere in Downtown with a bit of exploring.
Levi was communicative from the outset, flexible on check-in etc and the apartment has clean, very well-presented and had absolutely everything you could want including memory foam beds, a big bathroom (for NYC) and a good kitchen.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment or Levi's attentive service for a second.
The only thing I'd add (which isn't a negative at all - in fact for many people including my group, it was a huge advantage) is that the apartment is on the 4th floor without lift access. That means there is a great view (rare for NYC), it's airy (rare for NYC) and it is a quiet location (extremely rare for NYC!) but that may not suit everyone.
We were 2 couples who stayed for one week August 2011. The place was just as pictured - no surprises - and super clean and organized with lovely quality linens and very comfy beds. Lively neighborhood close to lots of other great neighborhoods withing walking distance or a short transit ride. (Very busy bar on the ground floor but you can't hear it at all in the apartment which was nice and quiet.)
The central air con was very good and a must when we were there. The wireless was super fast and reliable. Levi was very accommodating around timing for check in and out. The things lacking in our minds were a toaster and a kettle but we worked around both of those issues. The only downside to this place is the rather stinky walk up the four floors to the apartment - everyone in the building is clearly not as fastidious as Levi. That said, it was a minor thing and would not prevent us from staying here again.
We loved Levi and Levi's perfect place. His apartment was perfect for our needs - right in the heart of Chelsea, close to the subway and all sorts of necessary facilities and places of interest. We could not have been more perfectly located.
We were greeted by Levi and his friends who carried our bags up the four flights of stairs and whenever we saw Levi we found ourselves enjoying stimulating chats and receiving wisdom as to what was good to do in the neighbourhood and in New York.
The apartment is perfect - with an eclectic collection of New York ephemera and the touch of a committed interior designer - bland hotel interior this place is not - and the environment enhanced the experience of being in New York without having to step outside the door.
We would certainly consider asking Levi to say at his place again. Thanks Levi.
Levi is a stand-up gentleman and am now good friends with him and I promise you that he is a nice guy that you can trust and for your next rental or if you need someonewith a great eye for fashion. Feel free to contact me to confirm this.
