French person living in New York city and loving it!
Sophie & Matt were excellent hosts! Their communication was very clear and prompt. Sophie was so thoughtful to check in with us after we'd arrived to make sure we had everything we needed.
We couldn't have asked for a better location. You definitely have the experience of really living in the heart of NYC - convenient to everything we needed. (If you are unused to city life, the noise is lively. Earplugs suggested by another guest are a great idea.) We loved the skylight!
Fantastic place and location! Sophie was very responsive when we had a question for her after she had left. We would definitely stay there again in the future and really hope to do so soon!
The apartment has a great location in the west village. It is very bright ! The size of the apartment is also great for NYC standards and still very cosy and nicely furnished.
The downside is that it can get a little noisy with the heat in the winter - bring earplugs.
But the overall is really good and I would come and visit again in the spring or in the summer.
The hosts are amazing and were really helpful.
Thanks Sophie and Matt :)
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
You really can not find an apartment with a better location than this. Literally a fourth of a block from the 1, 2, and 3 trains, which take you up and down Manhattan and hit several major transfer stations. Also, the neighborhood is fantastic. If I were to move to NYC, I'd probably try to live around there. Many restaurants and bars and small unique shops. Sophie was a great host, pleasant and easy to communicate with. Her husband Matt was there when we arrived and showed us the apartment and our fresh towels and bedding. The apartment itself is very charming and historic. It has interesting features such as a wrought-iron skylight above the bed, which made the apartment seem a little more special. I was very happy with my stay and would of course stay there again.
Sophie was a fantastic host; easy to coordinate with, flexible and very communicative. We loved the apartment - bright, airy and has great character. It's also a buzzy and central West Village location, close to many restaurants, bars, shops and subway connections (though we walked everywhere). Would recommend!
Location, location, location... Sophie's place is in a delightful, safe, clean and pretty part of the West Village, while also being near two subway stops. It is top floor (5th floor penthouse) and, thus, has a large skylight over the bed and three good sized windows in the common room. Because of its elevation there is no problem with road noise, especially when the AC is going. Sophie and Mathew were very obliging and easy to deal with when any need came up - even though they were on their honeymoon in Greece at the time. The apartment is very simple, in an older building, and not luxurious (tiny kitchen yet well sized common room for the village as well as clean and tidy stairwells), but really does have everything you need, including a smart TV. I suggest you order a pizza pie, open a bottle of bon vin rouge and watch Manhattan on Netflix for your first night there.
Wonderful, clean apartment in a great location. Although we did not get to meet Sophie personally, communication was great and she arranged easy pick up of keys. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Sophie's place is perfect! It is a great location, a beautiful apartment, plenty of room for a NYC place, and Sophie was a fantastic host. We had the place to ourselves, and it was very easy for us to arrange our arrival and departure. The apartment was cleaned thoroughly, and she even provided towels and little hotel-sized body wash. My only reluctance in writing such a glowing review is that I really want her place to be available next time I'm in NYC!!
