Because of a delay at the airport we didn't end up meeting our hosts, but we did text, email and talk on the phone, and they couldn't have been nicer.
The apartment was excellent -- clean, light and with so many small details (like extra towels!) that we really appreciated. It was close to everything and in such a great neighbourhood. We loved having a Whole Foods so near!
We would love to stay here again.
Deena and Bari's apartment was perfect for our family vacation to New York. It has a large bedroom and bathroom with a small living room / kitchen space. The adults slept in the bedroom while our two kids (ages 13 and 15) slept in the living room, one on the couch and the other on a camping pad that we brought from home. It is a two flight walk-up (no elevator) and the building entrance and stairwell could use some updating, but the apartment itself is in fantastic shape. Gorgeous hardwood floors, lots of light from huge windows, a very comfortable bed with high quality (email hidden) unit in the bedroom for the hot summer months, and an updated, very clean kitchen equipped with all the basics. The location is in a somewhat transitional neighborhood between the East Village and SOHO, but within a couple of blocks is a Whole Foods grocery store and excellent restaurants frequented by locals, which translates into great food at reasonable prices for New York. It's also in very close proximity to the F line (subway), so getting to all the tourist spots is a breeze. Plus, Deena and Bari are great hosts - very quick to respond to questions by text or email. We loved staying here and would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!!
Bari is a very nice person, who always answered our messages within minutes and waited for us when we arrived at the apartment. We really liked the apartment. The beds were comfy and the bathroom is quite big. We absolutely loved the area. It is right in the middle of everything, very close to SOHO, the East Village and Chinatown. Little restaurants and bars everywhere but no noise of the night live in the apartment. We would love to come back.

Bari was really friendly and helpful, timely, was waiting for me when I arrived. The place was very comfortable, and it worked great for our visit in the East Village. Thank you Deena and Bari!
It's been really nice to stay at deena and bari's place. It's cosy and clean.
Thanks for all the helpful information which we' ve got from deena and Bari. Super- friendly
Great flat in the lower east side with lots of nice eateries and bars in the vicinity. Deena (email hidden) and made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be staying in Deena's flat again!
We stayed at Deena's place for two nights. Deena (email hidden), comfortable bedroom, and a nice bathroom. As another guest pointed out the entrance is run down an different from what you expect and yes the steps are steep (no elevator) but that doesn't change the experience.
The Les is also an interesting neighborhood. More authentic than the SoHo, less touristy. Quite a few good restaurants around. We did try one italian Bistro listed in her suggestion book (77, on the 2nd avenue). Very tasty sandwiches. We also went to the wine bar right on the left of the apartment and had really tasty bites with decent (email hidden) for 3+ guets.
Very flexible and welcoming! Great, clean, neat place to stay in New York!! Definitely wonderful host and perfect part of NYC !
The apartment is really nice and perfect located in LES surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. I stayed there for a week with three other girls and we had a great time there. The couch could be folded and used as a bed, so there's enough space for four people. Deena and Bari are very nice and helpful!
Good stay! Thanks for All!!!!!
Deena is extremely prompt, punctual and responsible in both a social and a work environment. She is extremely quiet, neat and clean!
