Hi, I'm Ilaria and I live in New York City with my boyfriend Giovanni.
We love NY and we'd love to share the experience of living here with you guys!
The house in the lower east side is really cute! We've been there for nine days and it was a great experience! Giovanni came to give us the keys, to explane some few things about the house and in the end to suggest us some places very cool! I recommend you to rent this apartment because the position is perfect to travel around the big apple!
A cute little Appartement in the middle of the Lower East Side. A living neighborhood with nice little cafés (e.g. el rey, schiller's, clinton street baking company), good restaurants (e.g. public, saxon & parole, mercer kitchen) and last but not least some of nyc's nicest bars (like: PDT, Death and Company, Madam Geneva, Golden Cadillac, Angel's Share...). You can literally dive into the immersive and dense atmosphere of the LES! We recommend this apt. to everyone who wants to explore NYC having a nice little hideaway in the big apple.
I stayed at Ilarias and Giovannis place for 12 nights with my daughter and my friend Karen. It was very perfect and a cozy place with all you need. The communication with them were smooth, both before and during the stay. Friendly people. A good area to be in, if you want to be able to walk to interesting spots on Manhattan and to be (email hidden)ly area:-) Best recommendations from the three of us!
Ilaria and Giovanni were great hosts. I had a great time staying at their place and would recommend them to anyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The place was very clean and super cute and the handmade notes and maps were a pretty amazing touch. All in all nothing negative to report. The pull-out couch was great as an extra bed. The area is probably the best in manhattan if you love cool bars and amazing restaurants. If you don't love those things, I'm not sure why you would want to go to NYC in the first place. The place was super convenient, right next to the subway. I would definitely stay here again.
****the one caveat to note is that the apartment is located on the sixth floor and there is no elevator, so I would warn anyone who has a hard time with getting up and down stairs.
Staying at Ilarias place was a wonderful experience! Its a great location, right in the center of Lower East side with many interesting places to go out and shopping opportunities around.
The place itself is spacious for Manhattan, very clean and comfortable with everything you need. Ilaria and Givovanni are very nice, welcoming and accommodating people. They organized everything perfectly and were easy to get in touch with. I would love to stay there again and recommend the place to anyone.
the location is ideal , the apt was perfectly clean with everything you may need . Ilaria and her boyfriend are caring people who make sure everything was ok for me during my stay .
I stayed here alone for a month while I was taking a course in the city. It was perfect. Their apartment was very comfortable and cute. It was big for New York City standards and was well equipped with kitchen and other amenities. The building felt very safe and the neighbourhood was very family oriented during the day and very popular at night - also felt safe.
They were very accommodating, showing me and making me a map of where everything in their neighbourhood was, which was extremely helpful.
They were easy to get in touch with as well. All around it was a wonderful experience.
We spent such a nice stay !! the location is perfect, close to all the nicest spots in New York especially for people who like going out !
the appartment is really clean, homy, with all the confort you need, perfect for two people!
Even if we didn't had the chance to meet IIlaria it is a very nice and responsible person, all was perfectly organize for our stay! and that was really pleasant..
i recommend it to everyone!
Ilaria and Giovanni were the perfect guests! They were extremely pleasant and left the bungalow spotless. I would love to host them again. Thanks guys!
Very nice guest!
I know Illaria very well! She's a great friend and her apartment is very cute. They are great hosts and know the city well! You won't be disappointed!
I love Ilaria and have been friends with her for about a year now. The fact she has made New York her home coming from Italy and working in film should say all you need to know about her travel abilities. I would recommend her and her apartment for your New York visits any day and the price is well worth the cool LES location.
