Hi we are Rod & Kate, we both live in NY and enjoy traveling, spending time dancing Salsa a few nights a week
I am a photographer
Rod is a great host and a really nice, interesting guy. He went above and beyond to make sure I had a great stay. The apartment itself is a studio with everything you need- comfortable bed, warm shower etc. But the location, in my opinion, is perfect. It's in the east village which is full of bars/ restaurants and its easy to get pretty much anywhere in the city with ease- either by metro, foot or cab.
Its also off the main street so you won't hear much noise from traffic plus the outside area is an added bonus when the weather is good.
Rod was very efficient and swift with communication. The apartment is in a fantastic location. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the buzz and fun of the East Village. The apartment was quiet at night and is a good size for one person or a couple.
The Garden Apartment is a great way to get settled into life in NYC. The building is nestled between two busy streets, which is nice when you're looking to be near everything, but are looking for some peace and quiet when you're actually there.
Rod's description was accurate and he's very helpful with answering any questions you have during your stay.
Rod was great at answering all my questions in a very quick way. The apartment was very quiet and location was great. It's in a very nice neighborhood with a bunch of nice restaurants near by. Metro is only a couple streets away. Had everything we needed in the apartment and Rod was available at all times. Definitely would recommend to my friends and family.
The listing was exactly as described and we enjoyed our stay.
The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos. Very comfortable bed, great water pressure in the shower, and a convenient location for exploring Manhattan. Rod was very easy to deal with. Booking, check in and check out were hassle free!
The place looks as pictured and has good proximity to food, shopping etc. was pretty quiet save for other tenants stomping loudly above or crashing down the stairs. All in all, a good choice for a weekend stay.
Huge (URL HIDDEN) to Manhattan.Bus stop is in front of (URL HIDDEN) convenience.Rod is kind and super cool.Turbo is smart and cute.I wanna come again here.
Great place and location!
The check in process ran smoothly and was described perfectly from Rod. He answered always very fast if there were any questions and helped immediately.
The location of the appartment is perfect - east village at its best.
Very close (5 min walk) to the subway (line L - to get to the other lines and be everywhere of the sights in 15-20 mins and be in Brooklyn in 5 min / next stop is already in Brooklyn) and close to a lot of cafes and restaurants for breakfast and dinner. Also a small supermarket for the daily needs is just 2 min walk away.
The appartment is in the backyard, so it's very quiet and so you can sleep at night very well. You only can hear the neighbors above sometimes. The appartment is on the 2nd floor without an elevator, but it's easy to get the luggage there (we had two suitcases and no problem at all).
Inside you have almost 2 rooms (bedroom / living room) and a small bath room. There is no sink and mirror in there, but for us this was completely ok. The bed is comfortable (stayed there 4 nights) with a tv in front, so you can relax after a long day of walking through the city. Wifi works perfectly and ran fast.
All in all it's a perfect place to stay there as a couple or alone for several days to visit New York.
Thanks Rod to let us be your guests.
