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!:)
David is a great host! He was there to greet us and had a print out of area restaurants and he helped us find towns nearby. He was very prompt in his responses when we made the reservations even though we only gave him 6 days notice that we were interested. The apartment is comfortable. David had to be away for part of the time, but he kept in contact with us whenever we had questions. The neighborhood is quiet and feels secluded, but it is a short drive to the towns we wanted to see and hiking...David helped give us a great first experience with airbnb. Thanks, Dave!
David was very accommodating. We were very much looking forward to sharing his well-known home made cup of coffee with him Saturday morning but had had prior plans made and could not. We are hoping so next time!
My boyfriend and I had the best stay at David's place. The apartment is nestled in the woods of New Paltz and has a beautiful balcony with views of the back yard and garden. The apartment itself was very nice, clean, and comfortable. There are lots of windows so the morning light was amazing. David was so welcoming when we arrived and helpful throughout our stay. He was quick to respond when we had questions about directions and so friendly to chat with. Such an accommodating and generous host! It was the perfect weekend getaway.
Awesome review! thanks
Great place. Highly recommend. The rail trail from Old Ford Road to New Paltz (David's recommendation) made for a beautiful morning run.
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!!!
