This is a well located apartment in Chelsea close to the Meat Packing district, Chelsea market and The Highline. We walked everywhere over a week. It is also surprisingly quiet. Perfect for an individual or couple. There are three flights of narrow stairs to navigate but other than that no problems. Derek was prompt in answering questions once we arrived in NY and met us at the apartment even though we were an hour late. Before we left Australia we had to prompt him on a few times to send us the information.
The apartment itself is perfectly fine and the photos are exactly as you will find.
Derek's place is in a very convenient location. The apartment was cozy and comfortable.

If you go to NY I would definitely recommend Derek apartment
Derek's apartment is exactly like how it is in the photos - cozy, comfortable, and just nice for one person or a couple. The apartment is on a very quiet street, and on sunny days there's so much light from the skylight and the windows and it's simply lovely. The view from the roof is pretty awesome too. It's great that the apartment is equipped with a washer and dryer, and the linens I swear were the softest in the whole world.
I think the best part about the apartment is the location - close to Chelsea Market, grocery stores, galleries, restaurants, and a short walk to the subway. It's very easy to get around uptown, downtown or to Brooklyn.
As a host, Derek was prompt to respond and quick to provide any assistance when necessary - a couple of lightbulbs blew out during my stay and he was kind enough to have them replaced. He was also flexible with the check-out time, which I really appreciate.
Thank you Derek!
We had an amazing time in Derek's apartment. Many windows = lots of light, clean, small but fully equipped kitchen, a rooftop terrace, big tv, high-speed internet, even a laundry machine, very nice neighborhood and a short walk to the metro. Loved that we could chill out and make some bacon + eggs before our epic walking tours through the city. Contact with Derek arriving and leaving was fast and friendly. Fully recommend it.
My husband and I just returned from a week at Derek's apt, and we had a really fabulous time! The apt was in a really great neighborhood with loads to walk to. Chelsea market is super close, and you can be anywhere quickly with the convenient location of the subways. We're really happy we chose this apartment. It had everything we needed and Derek was a great host and let us in the first day and gave us the 'lay of the land'. We're really grateful to him for letting us stay in his apt and would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quiet, conveniently located space. It is important to know that the apt is on the top floor, so you have to walk up three steep flights of stairs, but if you can handle that this is a great apt to stay in while in NYC.
We had a great time at Dereks apartment. The location can hardly be any better: a variety of great eating places, the High Line, Chelsea Market and interesting shops in walking distance, metro stations can be reached within a few minutes. Derek is very nice, helpful and reliable, he responded immediatly and took good care of us. The apartment has been just as described and shown on the pictures - clean, stylish and well equipped. Plus the rooftop with a beautiful view. We would definitely come back - thanks again, Derek!
Nicely located for both Uptown & Downtown plus trips to visit relatives in Brooklyn. EXACTLY as pictured. VERY clean space. Plenty of linens plus in-unit washer/dryer if needed. QUIET, no street noise. Great for experiencing NYC living. Felt welcome, provided tips for city living, eating out, getting around.
All elements of the stay were great. Derek was a great host, flexible, attentive and friendly. All aspects of the apartment were as per the description, everything you need, lots of light and a great top terrace to watch the city skyline. The location is fantastic. If you want to experience living in Chelsea NYC, this is perfect.
Derek was fabulous. As is his place. Could not have had a better experience. It's in a beautiful - actually, for me, perfect - location, it's beautifully kept up, and just perfect in every way. As was Derek. Would - and very possibly will - go back there again.
Derek was a good sub tenant
