On the road in California at the moment.....
enjoyed my time last year in the NYC metro area as an airbnb host!
Jeanie is simply a wonderful person. From the first day, I felt super comfortable, and in the 1st week I was already inviting new friends over! All of them agreed - she has SUCH a wonderful energy about her!
Jeanie has helped me search deep inside myself because of my openness with her about my "inner demons" - but she has also provided hours of conversation about the most interesting and varied subjects. The great thing about her is her respect for people - you want to mess up your room? Fine. You want to sit alone in your room and be antisocial? Fine. You want to shower and chat to people at 4am? Cool, just shut her door. You want to play loud music during the day? Awesome (Jeanie loves all music)! The only thing she won't allow you to do, is starve from workaholism (she forc-fed me a few times, and it was the sweetest thing ever!).
She has changed my life, and although she is moving house, I'm sure that she would give you the same unforgettable experience if she were to move into a tiny hut. The happiness I'm feeling on my trip here is definitely mostly because of her.
PLEASE do not pick anyone else - after you'll trip, you'll remember me begging this of you, and you'll smile as you write a similar super-ecstatic review about her.
Jeanie is somebody everyone needs in their life.
We really had a wonderfull time staying at Jeanie's. It really is 10 minutes away from Time Square, the place is awesome and Jeanie is a lovely person, kind and helpfull.
NY is overwhelming and we found it priceless to stay in a quiet neighborhood.
Nous avons beaucoup apprecié notre séjour chez Jeanie. Elle est effectivement à 10 minutes de Time Square, l'appartement est magnifique et Jeanie est une personne adorable et très serviable.
NY prend beaucoup d'energie et dormir dans un environement calme fut un luxe appréciable.
I had the most wonderful time in NYC thanks to Jeanie, she is just the most amazing person I meet. The apartment is so beautiful, peaceful, clean, it´s the best place to stay. Is10 minutes far from Porth Authority, and Times Square.....The Empire State is visible from Jeanies sweet balcony. I don´t words to say how amazing was stay in her lovely home just living the best of New York city.
I really enjoyed my stay with Jeanie. Her spacious apartment is quiet, close to buses and the area safe to walk alone in. The bedroom I was allocated was comfortable and spacious. Jeanie was practical &helpful & she really went out of her way to make myself and her other guest comfortable, New York City style!
House is nice, good localization, and very receptive!! Thank you for receive me.....
apt was in an excellent location! close to NY Port Authority. Host was very helpful. The apt was clean and modern, however there is no ac in the room. Overall experience was great!
This was my first time using airbnb and my friend & I had a great time staying with Jeannie. It can be a little awkward staying in a stranger's home, but Jeannie made us feel totally welcome and at ease. Her place is lovely and comfortable - it was so nice to come back to our room after being in the city and just relax. The buses to and from the city were convenient and easy to use. In addition to feeling at home, we were also able to take advantage of Jeannie's (and her awesome niece, Jessie's) knowledge of the local area and explore some great places to eat in New Jersey. All in all - it was a great place to stay & I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I can't say enough good things about Jeanie and her beautiful, spotless, welcoming, convenient, peaceful home. I felt at home the minute I arrived. It really is a super short ride to Manhattan, and parking right out front could not have been easier. Even her neighbors are great! Jeanie is an amazing person, and I'd recommend her wholeheartedly.
This was my first experience with airBnB, and it was wonderful! Jeanie is a very nice person, very friendly. The apartment is conveniently located, exactly as advertised 10 mins by bus to time square. You can even see the Empire State building from the balcony. It is quiet at night which is important after a busy day in NYC.
Ill def stay there again. Wonderful stay!!! Thank you Jeanie.
we had a fantastic stay!! room was absolutely perfect. truly felt like a home away from home. it was convenient to get to the subway... bus was just a minute's walk away from jeanie's place. jeanie was a wonderful host, always ready to help us with directions and answer any questions we have (: would definitely stay here again!
It was a pleasure to host Jeanie Donovan. She is upbeat and positive and we truly enjoyed her company.
The minute I met Jeanie I got the feeling that I would enjoy having her in our home. She was very warm and friendly, yet quiet and private. And I was right-- she was extremely considerate and respectful the whole time she was with us. Jeanie went above and beyond what I would expect of any guest. She helped clean dishes that she did not use, and even swept the floor for us (we do not expect this of anyone). She was very sweet with our cats too. Jeanie seemed to appreciate our home as much as we appreciated having her here. She left the bedroom, bathroom and living room in perfect condition. A very kind, honest and generous soul--we would welcome her back with open arms!
Jeanie Donovan is a treasure
Sincere, honest and to know her a true pleasure!
I stayed at her apartment on numerous occasions: A rare find that offers a feeling of the country, within walking distance to the Lincoln (website hidden) a single row of houses on a quite street, It directly overlooks a reservoir with it's southern exposed terrace, one floor up from street level. The interior is an open well designed modern lay-out, with well functioning spaces, comfortable and even expansive without being excessive. On the south eastern corner of the block, it captures beautiful sunlight throughout the day. The neighbors I found to be courteous and friendly. This apartment has been a peaceful haven, and just a stones throw from the city.
