Grew up in Massachusetts and moved to NYC in 2009. I work in the city and travel a lot while trying to keep my life interesting outside of that.

Wesley was super communicative between the time we reserved his apartment the time we left there after our amazing NYC vacation! He answered all our questions quickly and patiently and dropped the keys off at a convenient location for us to pick up when we arrived.
The apartment was perfect for our needs and in a great location. Close to subways and lots of places to eat and shop.
Me and my friends stayed at Wesley's place the second week of november...our staying has been fantastic! He's a wonderful host, funny, kind and very helpful! The apartment is two blocks away from the subway and nearby there are ATM, market etc.! We suggest to book this apartment if you want to visit NYC at a very affordable price!
Wesley was amazing, very responsive and helpful. The apartment is very well located too. 2 min walk from the train station, cafes etc. For those who bank with HSBC, you also have an ATM around the corner!
Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip to New York due to hurricane "Sandy", but Wesley was extremely kind and helpful when we had to cancel our reservation. Also, the responses to emails (for the reservation and for additional questions) was always prompt. I will definitely try to stay at his studio during future trips to New York.
This is a fantastic, cozy spot in a really cool neighborhood. It's just steps away from great restaurants, shops, and one of the city's best cocktail bars. It's three blocks from the ACE - making it super easy to access most of the places one would want to go on Manhattan. On top of that both Wesley, who I didn't actually get to meet in person, and his neighbor, Dave, who I did - were amazing. Thoughtful, responsive, and all around great hosts. This is now my first pick spot when traveling to NYC.
We arrived late on a sunday night, did not have cellphones with us to communicate with Wesley but when we arrived his best friend took immediately care of us, showed us the apartment, the patio, the building. We immediately felt at home!
We just loved Wesley's apartment, and its the location! Wesley was always very helpful to us when we needed extra time to check-out and very responsive by email or phone even if he was away.
We will come back to Wesley's apartment next time we visit NYC for sure!!
Thanks a lot Wesley!!
Wesley was very friendly and an agreeable host. He was easily reachable by phone and was flexible regarding our arrival and departure times. He was out of town while we stayed in his apartment and the arrangements he made to have a friend give us the keys worked without fail.
I feel the need to mention that the apartment however was not clean. The bathroom floor, sink, toilet, and shower were dirty and covered in more than a few long hairs. We knew that someone had reserved the apartment for the night before and it was also obvious that the linens had not been changed between guests.
There was a bottle of wine and note left by an acquaintance on Wesley’s behalf apologizing for the dust, which was certainly a nice gesture; however, we found that the lack of cleanliness was excessive and not due to dust. Based on previous reviews I was surprised to have this experience.
Again, Wesley was very friendly to speak with. I still recommend giving this place a chance based on previous reviews, his demeanor, and the great location of the apartment. Our stay would have been much more pleasant had someone taken a few quick sweeps with the broom, used some all-purpose cleaner, and changed the linens between guests.
PLEASE NOTE: I posted my review and within less than 24 hours Wesley contacted me personally to apologize for the state of the apartment. He had made arrangements for cleaning and was not aware that they had not been followed through He has made arrangements to prevent this in the future. I really appreciate his promptness in reply and courtesy. I feel confident that future guests will have a very positive experience staying here!
It was a rather pleasent stay at Wesley's place. Especially at a time I needed a place to store my luggage when I flew in NYC as the 1st city then went on my travel agenda to other cities before returned to NYC. I was uncertain if I could leave my bags at Wesley's apt so I didn't have to carry all the way during my tour. Then Wesley had helped me to do so without any hesitation.
Thanks heaps, Wesley for providing me a comfort and harsle free holiday in NYC, making my 1st US holiday memorable. I would highly recommend Wesley's place for staying - comfort, convenience, in addition to having a GREAT host!

The apartment was great! Very clean and close to the subway, as well as a couple great restaurants and bars. Wesley was a great host and very responsive to emails. Would highly recommend!
Das Appartment von Wesley hat für mich seinen Sinn voll und ganz erfüllt. Subway-Nähe. Neighborhood auch nachts nicht gefährlich.
Schlüssel habe ich von David, einem Nachbarn von Wesley bekommen, war sehr nett. Wesley selbt habe ich nie gesehen, was aber kein Problem war. War via Mail und über sein Telefon erreichbar (vom Mailkontakt habe ich einmal Gebrauch gemacht, rasche Antwort).
Das Appartment hat die richtige Größe für eine Person, ein Päarchen würde es platzmäßig vermutlich auch schaffen. Bett, Bad, Küche, wer möchte Flatscreen, Hinterhof mit Sitzgarnitur, ... vorhanden.
It was a very nice experience to host Wesley and Kelly, and although I did not meet them in person (my husband did though) all our communication prior and during their staying was very friendly and accurate. Plus they left the apartment spick and span, I highly recommend them to future airbnb hosts and hope they decide to stay with me next time they visit Reykjavik.
Wesley and his girlfriend and dog were great guests. They left the place immaculate, and I couldn't even tell a dog had been to stay. They are certainly welcome back any time.
Wesley stayed with us, along with Kelly and their Jack Russel, Peanut. They arrived while we were out of the house, and communication was great as they updated their arrival time and let us know when they got in. My first meeting with them, Wesley helped shovel the driveway which shows how friendly and considerate he is. Their dog Peanut was so well-behaved. She got along great with our dog, and is such an adorable little ball of energy. Any future host (or guest) would be lucky to meet them.
Wesley was an Excellent guest! He was clean, courteous and an all around nice guy. I hope to visit his place in NYC next time we head that way!
Wesley was a very nice guest, very friendly and get along with everyone, I would certainly love to have him stay here again.
Wesley and Kim were fun to host and I think Wes would like to come back when the fire has not died down so far in the firepit.
Wesley hosted me in his amazing place in NY.
He not only had a supercool apartment - he showed us where all the really good things are around. This guy knows what's going on in his area.
It was an awesome awesome awesome experience to stay in his amazing apartment, drink a beer in his garden, go out to all the cheap pubs around his place and take the sub after walking less than 5 minutes from his door...
Wes is a super friendly and funny guy. I know him through a group of friends that frequently participate in "mud-runs" together. If his willpower and success in athletics is any indication of his hosting abilities, you are in good hands!
Wes is a really great guy - very knowledgable, and a generally good reference for what is going on in and outside NYC. I would definitely recommend his place for someone that is looking to experience actual city life; knowing what I do about Wes, I can guarantee it will be a great experience!
Wes is nothing less than a gem. I've known him for years and he has always been helpful and accommodating. He knows lots of great restaurants, bars, sites of NY, and the must-sees. He has a great studio apartment and genuinely wants you to enjoy your stay. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for a close walk to the park in a great NYC studio.
Wes is fantastic. He is very accomodating and can help with any questions/concerns a guest may have. He is accessible and very knowledgeable of New York City. He is great at recommending good restaurants and bars, fun places to go, and ideas for nights out.
I highly recommend staying at his apartment. It will definitely be a good experience for anyone who comes to New York City.
Wes is a super nice guy with an awesome apartment. When I stayed he was extremely accommodating and made sure the whole process was seamless. The apartment is spacious, clean and it's on the ground floor so he has direct access to a pretty awesome backyard, which is almost impossible to find in Manhattan. His place is also right next to Central Park and Morningside Park. I'd definitely recommend staying here.
