I am a graphic designer living in Queens, New York. I love traveling (who doesn't?) but am in a committed relationship with New York City.
Swathi was the perfect host. She accommodated me well at a very short notice. Her home is very warm, clean, peaceful, and welcoming. New York wouldn't be the same without her. She was there for me whenever I needed direction or advice.
We found Swathi's apartment to be in a perfect location, a few minutes walk to the 7 line subway and one stop to Grand Central, making it only a 20 minute journey from the apartment to being in the heart of the city. The apartment was bright and airy with a great kitchen, the beds were comfortable and everything was clean and tidy. The balcony and living area both have great views over the East River and when the lights come on in the evening, the view of the Manhattan skyline is stunning.
There was no dinning or kitchen table but we ate our meals on the table and chairs on the balcony enjoying the great view.
The internet connection was fast, cable TV choices extensive and a very easy walk to the local supermarket and numerous local restaurants, we could imagine living here permanently.
Great hosts and everything was as described. We would definitely rent from Swathi again
It was a joy to have Swathi and her 3 friends stay in our home during their weekend in San Francisco. Communication was a breeze, they were respectful of house rules, left the apartment in great condition and even started the laundry. They are all welcome (and encouraged!) to return.
Great guest. Communicates well. Respects the house. Who wouldn't want an obeisant guest and posse? I do and so should you.
