What a fantastic place! Sarah was a lovely and thoughtful host, she left instructions on how to use everything as well as some New York guides. The apartment was lovely and quiet, perfectly located near all those great places to eat and visit but at the same time really quiet. We always felt safe and it was a lovely space to come back to after walking all day. Trudy the cat was hilarious and gorgeous, and very affectionate.
We were sad to go, and would definitely stay here again, this was my first time using AirBnB and I was a bit worried but there was no need as we could not have had a more perfect and quintessential NYC experience.
Great Value! Great Apartment! Great Location! Great Cat!
Sarah was a great host. She was helpful, kind and easy to communicate with. The apartment is beautiful and the cat is adorable and affectionate. Would definitely stay again!
This was the third trip on Airbnb to NYC for me and my girlfriend. Sarah's apartment made for one more great experience. It was comfortable, roomy, and Trudy (the cat/our host) was awesome. I'm not exactly a cat person, but I'm a trudy person. We love the neighborhood - across the street is our favorite coffee place in the city (Abraco) and the apartment is situated next to all sorts of amazingness.
Sarah was lovely and easy to deal with. Her apartment was clean and had everything we were looking for in a place to stay. I'll definitely look for it again next time we're in the city and would happily refer anyone to Sarah.
Thanks for the great stay!
We really enjoyed staying at Sarah's place. The location was great with anything we needed a short walk away. The apartment was clean, cozy, bright, and a really comfortable fit for us. We would love to stay at Sarah's again. Trudy was a sweet host to us, welcoming us home every day. There was only a slight snag with our key acting wonky, BUT it's hardly worth mentioning because Sarah solved the problem within a few minutes of it occurring. She also supplied us with information about the neighborhood in advance and with even more guides and travel books upon arrival. We felt very, very taken care of. Thank you, Sarah!
My daughter and I stayed at Sarah's place for two weeks this spring while in New York for my daughter's school activities. Sarah was wonderful to work with and her place was just perfect for us. East Village is charming with lots of fun places to eat and shop and we felt perfectly safe coming and going. Sarah's apartment was actually larger than what I expected and very nicely appointed. We loved having Trudy around to greet us when we came in. She's an adorable cat and made our stay more like "home" than just a visit.
My partner and I had a great stay at Sarah's apartment in the week before Christmas. We have both been to the city before and so were keen to stay away from the more touristy attractions and experience a bit more of the real New York. The apartment was in a great location in the heart of the East Village, close to some great bars and restaurants and only a short walk from the subway which we used to get around. The apartment was exactly as described and pictured online - clean, tidy, cosy and warm and full of character. Trudy the cat was also no trouble at all. We never got to meet Sarah in person, but she was a pleasure to deal with via email, responded to all of our questions very quickly and left us lots of helpful instructions and tips. After a long day walking the streets of the city it was lovely to come back to the apartment and have the space to relax before heading out for the evening - a real home from home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sarah's apartment to anyone travelling to New York and would definitely stay there ourselves again.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Sarah's apartment in NYC, great location, easy access, all around great experience. Trudy the cat had to be the highlight of our trip, she cracked us up. We were only there for one night, we were exhausted due to all the traveling we had done so we did not get to enjoy the city like we had planned but if you are looking for a clean, welcoming and and easily accessible place as far as location, this is it by far. Sarah was fantastic, honestly we do not have a single complaint except we wished we could have stayed longer. Cheers Sarah! Thank you once again!
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Sarah's apartment. The location is right in the heart of the east village and about a 7 block walk to several subway lines. If you're not familiar with NYC, be aware that apartments are normally small and this is no exception. However, it is full of pre-war character and very well appointed, and since it faces the interior courtyard, it is very quiet. The bed was comfy and she has the best pillows ever. Trudy the cat is a real sweetheart too!
Due to our respective schedules, we never met Sarah personally, but she was fantastic to deal with via email/phone and was a great host. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and she left instructions for every possibility, which came in handy when we accidentally tripped a breaker with the AC and a hair dryer. She definitely goes the extra mile for her guests and we would love to stay here again!
