Hola! somos una pareja joven cuando llegamos, el piso estaba desordenado, pero luego vino una chica de la limpieza muy amable y simpatica que lo ordeno y lo limpio todo muy bien, aunque no vimos en persona a Carolyn nos parecieron simpaticos. La casa esta bien. y cerca del metro y de un supermercado que tiene de todo.
If you ask me, there's no better place in Manhattan than the little enclave around the Columbia University campus. Pretty much everything you need is right there - pretty much everything you need is in "Bob's", officially known as Columbia Hardware and it's counterpart Columbia Houseware - and as far as getting around, my son will tell you the IRT 1,2,3 line blows away the competition. Carolyn and Steve's place is in the thick of it, upstairs from the charming Liberty House boutique (which carries just about anything Bob doesn't), and it's a super well outfitted and maintained place. You got all kinds of streaming media options, top flight coffee maker (quick note to my current host if you're reading this - how can you not have a coffee make? There's got to be an airbnb rule about that if there isn't a legal statute.) super comfy bed, great shower, and you can see Edgewater from the window. If there's anything else you need, Carolyn's quick on the iPhone. You're covered. The only drawback is that Carolyn and Steve have to go to school, and they can't give up their apartment more often. Those who have the opportunity should grab it. [Note: I acknowledge that neither Liberty House nor Bob sells food. But the neighborhood's got that pretty much covered.]
Carolyn & Steve's place was a fantastic find. Carolyn was super responsive & thought of everything, in terms of figuring out what I'd need to know ahead of time. I am so fortunate that my first AirBnB experience was with them. :)
Their apartment is cozy, in a great neighborhood & super close to the subway. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Carolyn & Steve's place is great! The neighborhood is great - bars, restaurants, grocery and drug stores nearby - it was awesome for one night but would be even more awesome for an extended stay. The apartment was comfortable and welcoming. I can't say enough nice things about it.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Carolyn's place for one night around New Year's and we had a great experience! Carolyn was out of town with her husband at the time, but she provided meticulous directions, instructions, and advice about the area surrounding the apartment - she made sure any question or concern we could have possibly had was covered! She also is fantastically responsive and was frequently communicating with me via email and text. Would definitely recommend for a great stay!
Great stay here! Safe, secure building. Great neighborhood with markets, restaurants and quick food choices. Subway is very close. If you are looking for swank, this is not the place. Looks just like the pics. Great view, comfy bed. Not the tidiest, but it was perfect for our weekend, felt very comfortable here.
My stay at Carolyn & Steve's worked out great for my 3 nights in NYC. Carolyn's prompt and detailed communications were very helpful. The location is excellent and convenient to both subway and bus stops. The apartment is cozy and comfortable.
Carolyn and Steve were fantastic - they are both very friendly and chilled out (and they have an awesome dog as well!). There was tea and guidebooks offered and I was made to feel very welcome in their lovely flat (which was near the subway and made it very easy to get around). Definitely recommend!
Carolyn and Steve's apartment was amazing. Spacious, clean, and extremely homey, the apartment was perfect for someone looking to get a true feel for the UWS for a few days. Very helpful guests!
Carolyn and here husband were perfect guests; friendly, open, communicative and very caring of our property. Everything went smoothly from booking to check in to departure. We enjoyed hosting them (and they came to us well recommended as airbnb hosts themselves) and join in recommending them on to other hosts without hesitation. Thanks!
Happy to host Carolyn and her husband again.
It was good having Steve and Carolyn come and stay, though their telling us that they actually were coming and when they would arrive was rather last-minute. They are pleasant, sociable and interesting people who we would recommend and welcome back any time.
Carolyn y su pareja son encantadores. Respetaron las reglas de la casa y todo estaba perfecto cuando se marcharon. Es un placer recomendarlos. Hasta otra ;)
Unfortunately I did not have the chance to personally meet her and her husband personally-but the digital communication was smooth and her enthousiasm shined through.
Altough my sister did met her and she was so positive about carolyn and her husband. She found them upbeat and trustworthy right away. On top of that they left my appartment in neat shape. Would welcome them instantly another time again:))
She gave me a handy tip...to leave a blow dryer for hair;o
Carolyn et Steve etaient adorables, nous avons pris le petit dejeuné ensemble en bavardant agréablement.
Carolyn and Steve were such a nice couple, they had notting but respect for our home. They always kept the place clean and tidy. I would highly recommend them as guests.
Carolyn was a lovely guest. It was very easy to communicate with her and she and her husband left the apartment in best shape. I would be happy to host them again, when they visit Berlin the next time.
Carolyn was an excellent guest. Respectful of the house and a great communicator. I would highly recommend her to other Airbnb hosts.
It was a great pleasure having Carolyn to (email hidden). Always welcome to come and stay with us again when you are in London.
Staying with Carolyn and Steve was great, they're exceptionally relaxed, very respectful of their guests, and were full of suggestions for things to do / places to go in their area. They are situated right in a great part of the UWS, right next to the subway, in a great little place off Amsterdam.
With regards to Steve and Carolyn, I love them. A+
Carolyn is an amazing host! She is so nice and accommodating and really made us feel welcome at her lovely home. Her place is clean and in a great location! Its the perfect size for 2-5 people with a cute kitchen, large master bedroom, and living room/work space. Anything you need is nearby, and its super easy to get around wherever you need to go in Manhattan. The next time I travel to NYC I am definitely staying at Carolyn's place! I highly recommend you consider staying here - you definitely will be happy you did like I was! :)
Carolyn is an excellent host and friend. Her apartment is extremely easy to get to – 2 blocks from the subway and 2 blocks from Columbia’s campus. It’s also located near great cheap grocery stores I go to, even though I live in Queens. There is also the infamous Tom’s diner from Seinfeld, where everyone gets their picture taken at least once. Carolyn and her husband Steve are very sweet and friendly.
Carolyn and Steve are fantastic, and their apartment is super-comfortable, spacious, and clean. It's easy to relax there and it has everything you might need. They are also super-responsible - they help us out by watching our little dog all the time, and they take great care of him.
