I am 30, love food and wine and mostly New York City. My neighborhood is awesome, you should come check it out!
I had a really fantastic experience staying at Gavin's place. He and his girlfriend Elizabeth met me at the apartment and gave me a quick tour before heading out. The complimentary bottle of red wine they left for me was a surprise and super thoughtful! I always felt as though they were a phone call or text away in the event of anything unforeseen, but thankfully all went very well.
The apartment is a small studio but is absolutely sufficient for 1 or 2 people wishing to stay in the city and be close to all. The neighborhood is one of the best in Manhattan, with an extraordinary number of cafes, restaurants, shops, and cultural to-dos all just steps away. Accessing the subway at 2nd Ave or Essex/Delancey is very easy, and it never took me long to get anywhere. New York being what it is I didn't spend a massive amount of time in the apartment during the day, but everything felt cozy, and the bed was very, very comfortable! Will definitely want to stay there again on my next trip back.
Cool Gavin and sweet ultra clean home. It was perfect for our trip.
Abbiamo trascorso una piacevole vacanza! Gavin è stato molto disponibile fornendoci ogni informazione potesse esserci utile, sia prima di arrivare e sia durante il nostro soggiorno. Abbiamo trovato un appartamento pulito, tranquillo e dotato di tutto ciò di cui si ha bisogno. La posizione è ottima e lo consiglio vivamente!
Gavin is the perfect host. When we arrived he gave us a bottle of wine to welcome us. The home was Very clean and comfortable, in perfect ny style! The home was like the pics in The description and in a Good position to visit both the downtown and midtown. It is Very Close to restaurant and pubs. It is also really close to the subway station. It has been a really nice holiday!
Gavin is the mode generous host, when we met he made us feel like home and made sure we were not missing anything. The apartment is just perfect for a couple or a single person and even though we didn't cook the place is well equipped with a kitchen and dining counter. The bed is so comfortable, cushy and fluffy that you can easily fall asleep after a long day in the city. the neighbourhood is very vibrant, don't expect quiet, but it makes it really safe to walk at night. We had a wonderful stay at Gavin's!
I stayed for 3 nights and Gavin’s apt was nothing else but perfect: Small, unique, clean, quiet, safe. I felt at home from the first minute. It’s a five minute walk to the Delancy/Essex station. Lots of nice bars, restaurants and cafes within the same vicinity. Gavin is a great host, very responsive and attentive to his guests.
The apartment is a lot cuter and cozier than the photos show! This was perfect for a five night stay with my boyfriend. The apartment is very clean and quiet. We had no trouble at all sleeping at night. The location is also perfect as it is about a five minute walk to the Delancy/Essex station. We were comfortable and felt safe even coming back in the later hours on the weekend. There is also a nice pizza shop right on Essex and Stanton and a convenience store right next to the apartment.
The floor slant isn't very noticeable. The bathtub is a step up so take caution when stepping out--it didn't really bother us. Climbing the stairs every day was also not an issue for us, but may not suit everyone. The wifi and netflix was nice to have.
I can't say enough good things about the host. Though we did not meet in person, Gavin was incredibly accommodating in every way! He was very helpful and prompt with his responses when we had questions. He was very flexible with the check in and check out times and even went out of the way to mail us the keys because our schedules didn't match up for check in! Gavin was also very generous as he offered drinks and food.
We highly recommend this apartment and the host!
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your wonderful apartment and for all of your help!
Gavin's place was just the best! Clean, cozy, safe, quiet and at night you see the Chrysler building shinning in the far, NYC magic :) Gavin was very accomodating in the check in and out hours, the location could not be better: close to the orange subway line which brings you pretty much everywhere, many interesting joints such as the essex market and to fellow travellers be sure to stop at Tapeo 29 (the tapas et sangria at happy hour are unbeattable). I especially appreciated Gavin's quick responses, he's a vry reliable person. I highly recommend this place.
I stayed in Gavin's apt and it was perfect for what I was looking for.... Quiet and it a good location Gavin was easy to work with and very accommodating for my needs of arrival. Apt is small and unique but if you are in NYC you won't be spending your time in an apt anyways.
My boyfriend and I stay for 6 nights in Gavin studio. We felt like home in his quiet and cozy studio. Gavin is warm and attentive towards his hosts. The studio is located in a great area, with lots of bars and places to have a good breakfast; besides, williamsburg bridge is just around the corner so it's very easy to get over to brooklyn. Definitly, an awsome place to stay in NYC. Sure we'll come back.
Great guest. Respectful and tidy. Thanks.
A pleasure to host Gavin! He was very clean, discrete and a great guest. Communication before his arrival was perfect.
