From Sydney, love to travel. Life is short and the world is so big, see as many places as you can. New York is the only place I keep going back to.
Diana is my favorite guest. That's it hahaha. She stayed in my New York studio apartment for a month and took the greatest care of it. It was the second time Diana rented my place and she's always welcome anytime.
I love Diana's enthusiasm and her ways of travelling smart. We had great communication as well. Did I mention she was my favorite guest? ;-)
I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START! Diana and her husband were absolutely wonderful guests. They had the misfortune of visiting NYC during Hurricane Sandy, while I was in Asia. But they were spectacular in how they handled the situation and took care of the apartment.. They dealt with a power and transportation outage, the cold, and other neighborhood problems, and were still kind enough to clean out my two fridges as the food would soon go bad. They also bought extra supplies (toilet paper, batteries for flashlights, etc) for themselves as well as the following guests that would be staying at my apartment. They even left behind their umbrella for the future guests and eventually me, purposefully. I can't imagine a better guest to take care of my place during such troubling times.
On the last two days of the visit, they had to move out to a hotel as they needed electricity and internet for work. This was COMPLETELY acceptable and understandable. I offered to refund those two days, but Diana responded that she was able to get it from her trip insurance...and it wouldn't be necessary for me to refund her. On top of everything else...her honesty shone through as well.
If that wasn't enough, Diana and her husband are world travelers and we really enjoyed chatting about our various travels before they came to NYC. Very easy to talk to, courteous, and responsive. I can't thank you enough. Even more, I hope you're able to come back! Please keep in touch!
Lovely guests. It's always so nice to receive a quick email from a guest during the stay saying that everything was perfect. My apartment seemed like a perfect match for them, they left the place spotless, great to have guests who treat the apartment like theirs. Good luck with all your travels. Diana!
