Live in New York and love traveling
Felipe's apartment is in a perfect location--close to subways, restaurants and cool shops. He and coleen were quick to respond to my initial request, were waiting for me at the apt upon my arrival and answered my questions promptly during my stay. They even went out of their way to get me an ironing board and iron. The apartment is the perfect size for 1/2 people and the building itself was very nice. it was good value for money and i would definitely consider returning.
The apartment is in one of the best locations in NYC (Soho). The neighborhood is amazing. The apartment is very close to the Metro, there are a lot of excellent restaurants near by and it is also very close to excellent top brand shops. The apartment was the perfect size for two people.
Coleen and Felipe were excellent hosts and very flexible regarding the hours to enter and leave the apartment. I strongly recommend staying there.
If I am going back to NYC some day I will definitely try to stay there again.
Coleen's place was great, and Coleen herself was very accommodating of my last-minute request to rent it for some work travel. I had everything I wanted: a comfortable bed, hot water in the shower, a quiet street, and awesome coffee less than 5 minutes away at Smith Canteen! My wife joined me for the weekend and we found it very convenient to both some great Brooklyn neighborhoods and to Manhattan as well. It was a bit too cold out to use the deck (which looked awesome), but we had more than enough space for the two of us inside. I would definitely stay there again!
What a great place! This apartment could not have been any more convenient. 1/2 block to the F and G trains, just around the corner from delicious restaurants and coffee shops, walkable to many nearby cute neighborhoods, very safe, and oh so quiet. We loved having a peaceful, cozy, spacious place to come home to after a busy day exploring.
Coleen and Felipe's apartment is clean, bright, and very conveniently located. The pictures on the website are accurate. They were super accommodating and worked with us on our check-in/check-out times. No long flights of stairs to climb and there is an elevator in the building if you need to use it. There are also laundry facilities in the building itself. This apartment is perfect as your home away from home. We look forward to staying here again when we are back in the city!
Great Location! Great Place! The apt and deck were amazing. Very comfortable, and spacious. The F line station is across the street. Great markets, restaurants, bars, lots to do in the neighborhood. We really enjoyed this apartment and location.
Thank you Coleen!
We stayed one week in December at Coleen apt and had a great week. They responded very quickly to all our questions before check in and also were very flexible in our arrival and departure times. The apartment location is very good, close to 2 underground stations with many lines and connections. So close to Soho and the Village in walking distance to many restaurants, shops, etc. The apartment is nice with small kitchen separate from living area. The only "but" is the heating system which is noisy and hot, we had to open windows to low the temperature. Also the area can be noisy at weekend nights. We highly recommend it.
Great location and much better than staying at a hotel! Very comfy bed, good kitchen.
Can get a little stuffy so we left the windows open (which of course is very noisy in NY).
The guys were responsive and helpful, and I'd definitely stay there again.
We stayed in NYC in September 2011 for 9 nights. All the communication before the check in was great! Felipe and Coleen responded our emails promptly, responded to all our inquires and arranged the options for picking up of the keys and had some flexibility for check in and check out times.
The apartment was just as expected. Not many surprises - just like the photos. Good size in general, nice relaxing sofa and good size TV, good Wi-Fi, OK kitchen and OK bed. Yet, we almost did not use the kitchen. We were provided with one set of clean sheets and towels. Bathroom was a bit small and shower did not have much pressure on the water.
Very good location, close to bars, restaurants, etc. for those who like Soho near to West and East Villages, Meatpacking District and walking distance to subway stations which takes you everywhere in NYC. Can get a bit noisy especially on Friday and Saturday night with some loud people on the streets...but for NYC not so bad.
Few points to notice is that there was almost no space to hang or put our clothes, so we had to leave part inside the luggage. And the only bad point during our stay was that we were told - 'I would prefer that you don't send anything deliver to my address' - by the host in one of the emails we exchanged during our stay. Which we think it was innapropriate, because when we rent an apartment, we rent the address for delivery as wall. That is Our address during our stay, so if we want to order anything through the internet, or receive packages from other friends in other parts of the US, we should be able to, as long that we make sure we receive during our stay Only, not before and not after.
A friend of mine recommended Coleen’s apartment following her enjoyable stay – and we were not disappointed!
The apartment is in a great area of Brooklyn close to fantastic shops, restaurants and bars. It was a brilliant base to explore the area and the subway stop is just at the end of the road to explore the rest of New York. Coleen’s place is a great spot to relax after a busy day of shopping and site seeing and we made full use of the roof terrace in the warm weather.
Coleen’s tips on the area were really useful – thanks for a lovely stay – we would love to come back again!
Excellent guest, great communication, seamless experience! Would welcome back in a heart beat!
I was out of town when Coleen and her friend came to stay at my place and everything panned out perfectly! The room was left in mint condition; they even folded up the pull-out sofa. Thanks for making this such a seamless process ladies, you're welcome back any time. I can't wait to finally meet you in New York!
