Amazing studio (fully equipped, clean, amazingly located and in a safe area) and amazing hosts (thanks for everything Karen & Emily), we had an amazing stay and we will definitely recommend Karen's place and hope to return.
We loved staying in the apartment! It was extremely comfortable and well-equipped (my daughter especially loved the Brio train set!). When we're next in New York, we'll certainly hope to stay there again. Many thanks, Karen and Emily!
Just a wonderful place- We had a great time (3 persons)- everything was just as mentioned in the ad- very clean- fully equiped- just 2 blocks away from metro 1- simply a great place that I would recommend for sure.
Apartment was just as advertised. I rented it for my parents to stay close by and they loved the place. Said they would rent again in the coming months when visiting NY again.
Karen's apartment is clean and very well equipped. Superb location just minutes walk away from the WTC site. Emily was always available when I had questions and she was very flexible regarding checkin/checkout. I would definitely recommend this apartment if you needed a place in Lower Manhattan and would love to stay here again.
We stayed one week with our 1 year kid in Karen's apartment and had a very good time. The flat is large, clean, confortable and quiet. The district is perfect for those travelling with children with Hudson's banks, parks and playgroung inside the building. The communication with Karen's daughter was easy and she was helpful (thanks again for the babysitter).
Only weakness: it is necessary to take the sibway to visit most of interest points of NYC, but the station is close and line 1 convenient and not so crowded. We recommend Karen's flat.
I have been to NY twice before and have never stayed at a place that is so quiet at night, and so beautifully located. The sunny Hudson River views are a joy. The apartment is perfectly clean and the beds are comfy. I would certainly stay there again.
Response from Karen:
Thanks, John. It was a pleasure to host you!
My husband and I stayed at Karen's apartment for 3 weeks. The apartment was bright and spacious and had everything in it you could possible need. The arrangement's to collect the key went as planned with no problems. The views from the apartment of the Hudson, Marina and the WTC were a joy to wake up too. Battery park city is a beautiful area and very safe at all times. Subway and buses all within walking distance and a great free shuttle bus just outside to bring you anywhere down town. Everything is on your doorstep. Overall this is a beautiful location to relax in and you're still only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square. We would most definitely recommend staying at Karen's apartment and hope to stay there again in the future.
This apartment was perfect for our stay ... bright and open; great river views; close to shops/river/marina/Financial Centre/Subway/bus route; friendly neighbours in the apartment block; nice private garden with access direct onto the river path.
Arrangements went smoothly with Karen and being introduced to the
apartment by Emily was a nice touch.
We would definitely stay here again!
We stayed in New York for 8 days.
The apartment is very well placed, in the South of Manhattan in a quiet district, near the subway, juste near the east river.
In the 19th floor, the apartment offers a amazing view on Manhattan. Very clean, very well fitted out, we felt as at the house.
Karen was a great hôte, givin all the informations we (website hidden) we recommend strongly this appartment!!!!
