An artist in an artsy home... (halloween picture...)
The apartment was everything I could hope for! Wonderful space and original decor, superb location and welcoming hosts. A gem in New York. I cannot recommend it enough....
Barbara's place is in the best location in NYC, and is huge. There is an extra office are and the living room is very large. Though situated near all of the major restaurants and bars in the west village, it is also quite quiet -- rare for NYC! The bed is comfortable, and the washer and dryer in the unit are a great plus. The only problem is that the floors are very thin, especially in the bedroom. I was walking around late at night because I was restless one night due to some work issues and I woke up Barbara (who resides in the unit directly below this one that she rents) unfortunately -- I felt really bad about it. That said, the living room is very large and the couch is really comfortable and you could sleep there too if you get restless like I sometimes do. Anyhow, that's the only problem. If you are regular sleepers, I would highly recommend Barbara's place. And Barbara herself is highly responsive and was very communicative.
A wonderful apartment in a wonderful - location. Will miss it!!
A real Oasis in Manhattan with all the restaurants and bars you could wish for.
What an amazing place!!
Seriously it's like striking gold. Peaceful and charming street, a great funky little bar only next door which ads to the charm of it all. There's so many wonderful cafes, restaurants & designer stores that you just can't keep up. My husband joined the gym down the road and it felt like we were New Yorkers!
The apartment is exactly as per the pics. It's large and has lots of light coming; very welcoming. Loved every detail. The hosts are super friendly & kind and we just loved them as much as the apartment.
We were a bit apprehensive to use airbnb but after this experience it's the only way we'll be traveling. We'll so miss this place. We feel it's our apartment in New York now and we can't wait to get back and stay again and again!
This place is a real find - location could not be better and the actual apartment is huge and so tastefully decorated - friendly hosts mean I couldn't recommend this more!!!
We had a perfect time in this house from 1846. Everything was charming and the location is great, very quiet and very easy for someone visiting the city.
I highly recomand this place.
Loved the apartment inside and out. Great location, quiet street, two blocks from the Hudson River Park, centrally located between the West Village and Chelsea activity, plus the High Line. Loved the decor, the hospitality...my stay here has been perfect! I hope to come back to this same home, year after year.
What an amazing, creative and perfectly located place to stay in if you are holidaying in New York.
My partner and I were visiting from New Zealand and having booked online and seen photos, we had underestimated just (email hidden) this would be. Close to the metro, wonderful village cafes, the High Line, our place was as private as we required yet close to everything we needed whether that was in West Village or further afield.
The place itself is literally "gorgeous" and really meets all your needs. A lot of attention has been spent ensuring that the occupants experience a tranquil, comfortable and welcoming stay whilst in New York.
The host and the townhouse was a perfect complement to what was a perfect holiday in New York
Absolutely perfect for what I needed. Really felt like I was living in NYC for the week I stayed and Barbara is the ideal host, being there when you need but giving space when you don't. Loved every minute!
My son and I stayed at Barbaras apartment for a week. She was a great and caring host; provided us with The New York Times every morning and umbrellas when it was raining. The apartment is lovely situated in West Villge in a quiet street. We could even hear the birds singing every morning which is a treat in New York. The apartment is arty and you can tell that the interior design is done by a professional. We´d love to stay there again!
Barbara was our guest for an entire month. A nice and interesting person. We was glad to have her as a guest. :)
Barbara was an absolutely charming guest - and she is always welcomed back to my house!
Barbara was a wonderful guest!
