David was a wonderful host! He provided great recommendations on places to bike and eat and had wonderful cup of coffee waiting each morning :) the neighborhood was absolutely beautiful and mornings on the porch weee a welcome relaxing serene and revitalizing vacation away from the city. Highly recommend David's lovely abode!
Samara was a fun guest to have. One of the reasons I'm an airbnb host is because I get to meet kind people with interesting life experiences. Samara surely qualifies. And she took great care of the place, which is always appreciated.
David was a very thorough host! He gave us the lay of the land and made himself available for questions. The apartment was clean, well kept, and waking up to natural light from all of the windows was amazing. We even saw an owl while sitting on the deck! We highly recommend staying here.
This is a very nice space, with a gorgeous porch overlooking a big garden, sunny and airy. The room itself is very nice as well, and the bathroom is nicely set up. It's not really an apartment, though -- what you see in the picture is exactly what you get. You have a small fridge but no other kitchen setup, and while David makes his kitchen available, it's not quite what I had hoped for. A coffeemaker, a small table and a microwave would go a long way towards making things better. If you just want a really big and comfy bedroom with extra seating and a porch, though, it's fantastic, and David is a very nice and welcoming host.
David was very welcoming. He gave us good information about whee to eat, go hiking, and other touristy advice. The bed was comfortable. Everything was very clean and homey. The location was nice, a few minutes from the Gunks and a few minutes the other way to the fun stuff in New Paltz. We would stay there again. Great space and good location.
Dave was an exceptional host. The space was clean and welcoming, and Dave was happy to make personalized recommendations for things to do in the area. Additionally, he was readily available by text for last minute questions or personal requests. I highly recommend a visit!
Dave was really accommodating even when we ran late getting to his place and available if we needed him through our stay.
The space was beautiful and provided a great base for our Hudson Valley weekend. New Paltz was terrific and was central to everything we planned.
We would definitely recommend Dave's Garden Apartment our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
David was a great host, very flexible and accommodating! My boyfriend and I requested to book in less than 24 hours, and he welcomed us. He also allowed my 11 year old chocolate lab to stay. The room was excellent and the deck gave amazing views of the foliage and night sky. I recommend it for spotting stars and meteor showers!
My boyfriend and I had a very enjoyable stay at David's. He was responsive from the initial contact throughout the entire stay and made sure we knew our way around the area and had everything we needed. I've been to the area before and found David's location to be ideal. It was near to everything we wanted to visit - Hiking at Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve, the wineries and distillery, and the towns of New Paltz and Gardiner where you can find great local fare. The living space itself was very nice. The room was spacious and bright, with a deck that you can sit out and enjoy during sunny and warm weather. The entrance to the unit is separate from the host's side, so you basically have a private unit onto yourself. The area is quiet and secluded, so if you are looking to just take it easy and rest, staying around the apartment is definitely enjoyable. We wanted to hike and visit the wineries, so we didn't stay in as much. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay at David's place and look forward to coming back to the area and being able to rent the same space again in the future!
Hi Jun, glad to hear you made the most of your weekend. I hope you make it back in time for the spring flowers. The waterfalls are especially good at that time as they benefit from melting snowpack.
Our stay was wonderful! What made it wonderful was Dave's amazing hospitality! -Not only was the apartment ready for us as described, but Dave went the extra mile in printing for us a list of activities and restaurant suggestions that best fits our needs, which saved us a lot of research time, and gave us more fun exploring time to enjoy!
If you are looking for a place to stay that is cozy, comfortable, not far from New Paltz main street restaurants and shops, yet be able to enjoy nature's beauty...this is it!
Nayla, I'm really glad the weekend worked out well, despite the early weekend rain. It makes me happy to know that my home (and my region) made a positive impression to out-of-towners.
It was Beautiful and airy Loved the view and very Quiet David was very nice and offered me his home to prepare food. I enjoyed the space and was able to get work done!:)
Huéspedes como david son los que siempre queremos tener,ya que el amable especialmente
Su madre y bastante hordenados y respetuosos,nos gustaría voberlos recibir en nuestra casa.
David ha sido un excelente huésped. Y se que también es anfitrión en Airbnb. Estoy casi seguro de que el hecho de recibir huéspedes en su alojamiento hace que David tenga especial sensibilidad con el uso y trato que da al alojamiento. Muy recomendable
Great person - I highly recomend him in anyplace.
David was extremely polite and very careful with everything. We bumped him up to the Studio and I think he enjoyed staying there more because he could create his own meals and bbq.
David was a lovely easy going guest, and very independent. It was great hosting another Airbnb host and swapping stories and tips on hospitality. He enjoyed our mini tour of the area: Spittle Pond, the aquarium, Shelly Bay and John Smith's Bay beaches, to familiarize himself with the island. Alas, his time was too short with us. He was able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and headed out to explore all ends of the island including Dockyard by ferry. I believe he was able to share some of the trails with his visiting friends which gave them the opportunity to view the property as well. I'm hoping they will all come back again so that I can enjoy them playing tennis.
David was extremely fair play. He had to cancel the reservation, but let me the money since I canceled some other guests. Thank you and I hope you had a safe trip home. I hope to see you next time.
David was an excellent guest! He was very friendly, communicative, and lovely to talk to. I'm excited that he may be coming back very soon!!!
