We're a young couple working in the creative industries, we love good food and nice things!
David was a wonderful host from my initial contact with airbnb, throughout my stay right up until my departure. This was my first experience with airbnb and I was very happy with the experience.
The ad for David's apartment was very accurate. The pictures are an honest representation of the actual apartment. I arrived late in the afternoon and David made arrangements with the team at a very nice wine shop nearby to hold and hand over the keys.
The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The AC worked very well. The shower was fantastic. The kitchen had every convenience. (the only recommendation would be the addition of a small microwave.)
The location in the East Village was excellent. Plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Yelp is an outstanding resource for this and very accurate. And don't forget the great wine shop across the street. Nice selection at good prices.
The subway station is just a short two block walk from the apartment.
The apartment is on the top floor (5th) of this walk up building (no elevator). Very quiet neighbors; didn't see anyone during the six days there. The apartment faces away from the street so there is no street noise.
On day of departure, David communicated to ensure everything went well and offered any help to ensure I had a safe trip home.
This was an excellent vacation, in large part to David and his great apartment. I will request to stay here again on my next trip to NYC.
