We had a great week in Valeries apartment! It was just like the pictures said. Great location! With the subway just around the corner. Walking distance to great restaurants in Meatpacking and West Village. The really nice doorman(men) provided us with the keys to the apartment when we came, and always greeted us with a smile. He was very helpful and let us store our luggage in a storrageroom the last day because we had a late flight. It seemed like it was a great energy in the whole building, all the neighbors we met was very friendly!!! And like many other guests of Valerie have mentioned: The coffeshop downstairs had great coffe:) We would not hesitate to recommend others a stay in Valeries apartment:)))
This was our first trip to USA travelling from Australia and first time using airbnb, so we were a little apprehensive. Our experience with airbnb was excellent and the apartment was exactly as shown in the photos and noted in the reviews. The apartment was in a great location, comfortable, spacious, light, sunny and quiet by New York standards, it certainly contributed to the enjoyment of our three week holiday in New York, would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay. Val's apartment is great - clean, lots of light, plenty of storage space, nice bathroom and kitchen (plus access to a laundry). It's also in a fabulous location - extremely close to a subway line and walking distance to nice grocery stores, cafes, restaurants and shops in West Village, Meatpacking and other districts. Very convenient! Val was great to deal with and very accomodating.
This was perfect - my husband and I needed a place to stay in NY (where we lived) before we moved to San Francisco. Val's place in the West Village was a great last week for us - we were able to go to all of our favorite restaurants and were easily accessible to everything we needed given the nearby subways. The apartment is perfectly described - it's a large studio, had everything we needed - it was definitely clean and immaculate - the furniture was simple, tasteful and calming - the perfect respite from the big city. There is very little clutter and the kitchen and bath are in good condition, lightly but recently renovated. It's towards the back of the building so definitely quiet. The bed is queen/double, but comfortable/firm and we found it to be fine for two people. Only thing to note is that the curtains don't really block light, but that leads to ethereal light coming through in the mornings. If you need blackout to sleep, maybe bring an eye mask - it is definitely worth the compromise. It has already been said, but Val is responsive, helpful, and very sweet. Her photos (I think she took them) on the walls are also spectacular. Highly recommend staying here!
It was great to stay in Valerie's apartment! Location is perfect, great neighbourhood very clean apartment with a very nice doorman. I will definetely stay on her apartment again. Thanks Val!!
Valerie's apartment is an excellent choice for a NY stay. The location is a perfect balance between convenience and retreat. It's a short walk to the main area of the West Village, you almost literally fall into a subway stop outside the front door, and there's an excellent coffee place next door to start your day.
The apartment is right in the action, but extremely quiet for NY. It's an excellent layout for travellers, with ample space to arrange your stuff for your stay. Clean, bright and airy, it's the perfect place to stay.
Loved our stay, and will gladly return.
I booked this flat for 1 week late June, and it was exactly what I had hoped for. The images online are very authentic to how the place looks & feels. A beautiful, spacious and quiet / light apartment in a well-maintained doorman building. Right by the subway, shops and cafes next door, the tree-lined streets of the West Village, Chelsea, Meatpacking in near walking distance. I'd go back any time! Thank you Val.
El apartamento es espacioso, luminoso, limpio y esta en una ubicación excelente. Estupendo para una pareja que quiera disfrutar de la ciudad. Valerie fue muy amable en todo momento y por eso le damos las gracias.
We really enjoyed our 6 days in NYC. Valerie's apartment was exactly as promised. The coffee shop downstairs was great and we walked everywhere from her place. The doormen were all very helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this apartment for a couple.
Valerie has been a wonderful host! the house is lovely with an amazing location! thank you so much!
We loved having Valerie stay with us on the farm - she came with her husband and they were both so full of joy and excitement about being on our farm. They were so appreciative, friendly & fun. We loved hosting them & hope to see them again some time!
Val spent most of her time in class or socializing,which is exactly her agenda.
As a result I was unable to spend any time with her.
Fortunately my wife did.
Mary Jane thought Valerie was a nice person. She took the time to show MJ some of her work.
Left the cottage neat and clean
Would have her back anytime.
