We stayed 4 nights at Heidi & Matan's apartment, which turned out to be the perfect place for our stay in NYC. The outside of the building and entryway aren't anything to write home about, but the apartment is terrific—clean and has plenty of space. Because we both work in IT, strong wifi is a must and the signal strength was fantastic...even for VOIP calls. The furniture has changed some since they took the photos and I was happy to find the living room had plenty of space and two large sofas so that both of us had room to recline and work from our laptops. Also, there was a handy power strip, which made charging devices easy. The bed was comfortable, with really nice, soft sheets. The bathroom is small, clean, and adequate, but if you're a person who cares about a big bathroom, then this probably isn't the place for you. The kitchen was perfect for the little bit of making coffee/breakfast in the morning and cooking a few evening meals. I coordinated our stay with Matan who is very responsive, friendly, and easy going. He was flexible about check-in/check-out. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
The location was great for getting around NYC. Also the neighborhood was safe and had lots of great restaurants and Deli's. Everything you need is within walking distance. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The pictures are spot on. Heidi met us at the apartment and showed us how to use everything. We would stay there again.
Absolutely fantastic appartment and such a good location we couldnt have asked for anything better! Would definitely stay there if i go to NYC again it was just perfect we loved it.
We stayed at Heidi and Matan’s apartment on Nov 10th-14th.
We were greeted at the door on arrival followed by a tour of the clean spacious apartment. Bottles of water and nuts where left on the main table for us.
Before booking we searched and analysed many apartments in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Matan’s apartment for its value, was among the top of what we required. Situated just south of East Village between midtown and lower Manhattan, the location was perfect. Close to the more spiritual side of Manhattan of Greenwich Village and East Village. And just the right distance away from Midtown to not feel overwhelmed.
Heidi and Matan were excellent hosts. They provided us with local info and everything we needed. When on our last night there was an unexpected plumbing issue in the apartment Heidi was swift to come over to sort the problem.
We would definitely recommend the apartment as a comfortable, stylish stay in a cool area of Manhattan.
We had an excellent stay at Matan's flat. The location was impeccable and the apartment, beautiful, very clean and confortable. The situation was very practice, near 2AV station. We recommand this very place !
La estancia en al apartamento de Matan y Heidi fue genial. El barrio es perfecto, tiene muy buena comunicación con diferentes líneas de metro. El apartamento es perfecto y muy cómodo, era como estar en casa! Sin duda cuando volvamos, que esperamos sea pronto repetiremos!
Matan responded to my request to stay at his place within hours. We shared several back and forths confirming expectations and rules, and from then on, all was a seamless process.
Matan met me outside the place right on the dot, and invited me to the place. He gave me a short tour and showed me how to use the various appliances and shower. He had ready for me a towel, toothpaste, and various small soaps/shampoos.
He also had for me a few bottles of water and snacks. I left him some luna bars in return upon my departure. The only thing that mildly interrupted my stay (actually not at all.) was when he came to the place to fix the toilet seat the evening of my first night.
The apartment itself was a dream. The place is decorated with art and mirrors. The living room had a very cozy casual layout. Matan had some suggestions for good eats and bars. the location did not disappoint. If I could, I would absolutely stay with Matan again.
We had a fantastic stay in Matan & Heidi´s apt, wich is a nice and clean and of course with a killer location. Our hosts were very helpful and quick to answer any questions that we had concerning everything from how the shower worked to how to turn on the appleTV.
We highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting NY, and will definitely be back!

Amazing place, great location and excellent hosts. Definitely worth a 5 star rating.
My husband and I LOVED Matan's apartment! It is first of all in an amazing location; the amount of great restaurants, music and entertainment in the neighborhood is amazing. The apartment is a spacious one bedroom, with great artwork and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The apartment was super clean when we moved in, and included a welcome sheet with everything we needed to know. Matan was flexible on check-in and check-out, which was very helpful. He is also very responsive and took care of any questions we had or things we needed right away. Overall a wonderful experience and I would definitely rent this apartment again!
Matan and his girlfriend are the perfect guests! Super friendly, respectful and very communicative. They left the apartment perfectly clean and well organized. Definitely recommended to any host!
Matan (and Heidi) were great guests. They were very good at communicating before, during, and after the stay. They were very nice and down-to-earth and immediately trustworthy. Upon returning to the apartment it was immaculate! I couldn't have asked for better guests.
I know Matan for many years, he's a very friendly guy and i'm sure he will help make your stay in NYC easy and fun.
