Vivi was fantastic - starting with her being able to fit me in within a 2-hour notice. Place was as described, nice, cozy and easily accessible to every part of the city. She was beyond helpful with local snack choices [she's a chef herself, so knows the good spots] and gave you that feeling of having a friend in the city if you needed everything. And hey, an apartment to yourself in NYC at this price? 5 stars all around, will definitely stay here in the future!
It was great. The location is at the lower east side, lots of restaurants, coffee shops and bars , the apt is small but much bigger than a hotel room, it was very clean.
Vivi was very helpful, she agreed to a very early check in, and very late check out. She helped with recommendations about the neighborhood, and the city.
This place is so perfect! The location couldn't have been better. The subway station is right outside but I never used it because there was too much to see and do in the neighborhood! Cafés, bars, restaurants, clothing boutiques, parks, galleries, everything! The apartment is exactly what a Lower East Side place should look like. A creative space completely set up with all the comforts. There's art on the walls, lamps for mood lighting, a very comfortable bed covered in cushions, well equipped kitchen and bathroom. There's even an extensive DVD collection if you ever have time to watch one, you won't.
Vivi was a great host from start to finish. Very hospitable and genuinely keen to make my stay in NY the best it could be. It was! Completely devastated to be leaving my dream home and WILL be returning asap.
Great place to stay in NYC!! Very clean apartment, 5min from subway. Nice neighborhood, good restaurants nearby, little art galleries opening in the evening and a 15min walk to Soho and little Italy. Vi was very helpful and available when needed. Very good first experience with airbnb!
Perfect in every possible way. The apartment was as advertised--cosy, wonderfully located in the LES, comfy bed, etc--and Vivi was a fantastic, gracious host. Highly recommended.
Having worked out in NYC for a period of time, Ive been staying in various apartments across the city. I stayed in Vivi's apartment for 2-3 weeks and I must say it fitted the description and pictures very accurately.
The apartment is pretty compact, but it has everything you need, and in particular, I was glad to make use of the fully functioning kitchen which Id found to be a rarity in other places.
Apartment was nice and clean, and as its on the back of the building its very quiet with no street noise. As Vi describes, it is a building from 1980's so the exposed brick work, and water stains are to be expected, but its otherwise spotless.
The subway is a 5 minute walk away, which makes it a perfect location for getting around, and there are great restaurants and bars, and also laundry places all along rivington st, just 2 blocks over.
Overall I would recommend the place and stay here again.
Vivi was a really nice and helpful host. I'm very young and I didn't know nothing about the life in NYC and she helped me a lot. The first days I had an issue with the wifi and she fixed it whithin the hour. She was always answering very quickly and nicely. More than a host, she became a friend.
The Apt is nice and cosy. The location is cool. LES is perfect for young people who likes to go out in fancy bars and restaurants. Some say LES is dangerous but thats wrong. Delancey street is really safe. If you're young, one or two, the place is perfect.
Vivi's place was exactly as described. The apartment was cosy, clean & well equipped, so we enjoyed returning to it after a day in Manhattan. The location is fantastic, peaceful & quiet. Vinegarhill is a very nice part of Brooklyn, just steps away from Dumbo, the Brooklyn Bridge and the best views of Manhattan.
ViVi's place was absolutely great! Right in the middle of all of the great buzz of downtown NYC. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. Perfect for my week in the city. Vi is completely on the ball, you don't have to worry about anything with her. You know exactly what will happen, what to expect, etc. Great communications. Thanks again, Vi, hope your vacation was super!!!
Vivi is a great guest to have. Very respectful of the property and communication was always brilliant. A pleasure to accommodate!
Vi's friend was a wonderful guest! He was here for the funeral of a friend, so not such great circumstances, but we attempted to share with him some of the interesting and fun things about Carytown and RVA.
He was very respectful of everything and everyone, and we'd host him again in a NY minute! Thanks Jim!
Vivi was a great guest. As a bnb host herself, she understood the dynamics of the guest/host, which was very pleasant. I would welcome her back anytime.
What can I say? I think the reviews/references speak for themselves. Vivi is truly the crème de la crème. She is honest, smart, and most importantly has a jeweled heart. I love her like a sister.
I've escaped to Vivi's apt many times. The apartment is nice and quiet. It's exactly what I needed after a long hustling bustling day in New York City.
Vivi has been my girlfriend for over a year, so this reference might seem a little biased. But I have witnessed Vivi's thoughtful interaction with her guests firsthand; and I have seen her tireless dedication to making their stay in New York as hospitable as possible. Vivi's attention to even the most minute detail is what transforms this little apartment on the lower side into the perfect jumping off point to tour the attractions of lower Manhattan. She is always available throughout the duration of a guest's stay for guidance on places to eat and sites to see - or for any other questions a guess may have. You won't be disappointed,
Vivi is a gem. Generous, worldly, and immaculate. She cooks an amazing a Vietnamese pork belly, amongst other things and has a biting sense of humor.
Vivi is a fantastic person with a spirit for adventure! She is fun, smart and thoughtful of others. VIvi is also an expert on downtown NYC. You'll be in great hands!
Vivi is a fantastic person with great wit and equally great intellect. Her place is in a great location near some of my favorite NYC destinations ( the Village, China Town etc...). She has a clean apartment that offers tranquility in the heart of the Lower East Side. I fully recommend Vivi and La Petite Maison.
