I'm a tech journalist and startup employee with a passion for traveling and trying new things.
Erica is a very lively and friendly Airbnb host via e-mail. She responded my every single e-mail instantly to reduce my unease about the stay. And, her lovely apartment has a really great view of Charles river, a great public facilities at the top floor for workout and hangout.
The most important things is that distance to Kendall/MIT subway is 3 mins walk and this really helped me as a girl wears heels and didn't want to walk for too long.
I would recommend anyone who wants to spend some time in Cambridge to have Erica as your host!
Erica's apartment was lovely, comfortable and well equipped. The best thing about the apartment was the view of the Charles river and the Boston skyline. We enjoyed our morning cuppa in the balcony every single day. The T (Metro) station is just 3 mins away.
The apartment is spacious and clean and has a very modern and contemporary touch to it. Its on the 11th floor and the apartment complex is equipped with an elevator, laundry room, gym and a garden.
Erica was travelling, so we didn't meet her, but she had coordinated the key pick up, drop and all other requirements very well. She was easy to reach and quite adjusting, friendly and prompt.
There is a flight of stairs as soon as you enter the apartment which gave our backs a bit of an extra work out as we had heavy pieces of luggage with us. Apart from that we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this place to others.
Erica was an excellent and incredibly thoughtful host and it was a perfectly clean and quiet apartment in a very convenient location, close to Central Park and not far on the subway to downtown. Perfect!
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour a New York (1 semaine). L'appartement d'Erica est conforme aux photos, propre, calme (malgré les travaux) , et pratique. C'est un excellent point de départ pour visiter New York de part la proximité du métro.
Erica est une hôte charmante, très attentive et toujours disponible. Le contact à été régulier avant notre départ, ce qui nous a rassuré. A notre arrivée Erica a été très accueillante et disponible nous avons même passé une soirée très enrichissante avec elle.
Ce fut notre première fois avec air bnb, c'était une expérience excellente. Nous recommandons Erica comme hôte.
I stayed in Erica's lovely apartment over Christmas from the 19th December up until the 11th January, based two blocks from the 96th street subway station for the 6 train, it proved a 20 minute jaunt on the subway to most places of interest in Manhatten. Before my visit Erica went to immense trouble to answer my many questions and even prepared a lovely guide with recommendations for my time in New York. I have to say all her restaurant recommendations were spot on, with Nice Green Bo in chinatown being my favourite, I even went there for a date it was so good.
Unfortunately Erica was away on holidays herself for my time in New York but had left arrangements with a friend (Waikai who i would also like to express my thanks too), he met me on my arrival at her aparment to swap over keys for the apartment and left me to enjoy my first night in new york.
The apartment itself was brilliant a proper relaxing base to write read and listen to music after a long day of being a tourist around the city. It had everything needed for a most enjoyable stay and I would have no hesistation should i ever visit New York again in contacting Erica to see can I stay in her lovely home again.
Erica went beyond everything and even bought me a lovely christmas pressent which armed me with glasses for 14 hour welcoming of the new year in Times Square :)
Erica kept in touch with me throughout my stay to make sure everything was ok, but really her home was so well kitted out that there were no issues whats so ever.
All in all I would like to recommend both Erica as a host she is a credit, and anyone lucky enough to ever stay in her home is a lucky person who can tick off : Stay in a new york city apartment from their bucket list :)
Erica's studio is very clean and on 2 blocks away from the 96th street stop on the 6. It was only about a 25 minute commute downtown to Union Square and a very quiet apartment building. She's a great host and there if you need it - I'd definitely recommend staying here!
Like all the others, we must say that Erica is a great host, friendly, really easy to communicate with and responsive. The apartment was clean and set up, one of her friend was there for the key exchange and were really nice to tired travelers ! Very Good bed especially after intensive walking days ! All was there for us having a great stay. Thanks Again Erica!
It's a really great place! Even though it's not so big, it's enough for two girls. Even though there is a construction in front of the house, we didn't hear noise. What's more, it made us feel we are at home! A clean, comfortable, convenient place! We didn't meet Erica, but she reponded our questions by email very fast! It's a really good choice to stay in NY. Btw, I love your pictures. =)
Erica is a fantastic host! Though I didn't meet her in person, she was very supportive by mails and quickly answered all my questions (I have a lot of them because it was my first trip to NY and first deal with airbnb). Erica helped with little troubles - like finding an electric apadtor which we forgot to buy.
Apartment is amazing, very clean, very cute, very comfortable. You can find there anything you want. Location is good, few blocks from subway, close to Central park and Museum mile. There's indeed construction near the building, but as far as we were informed about that, it wasn't surprise and it wasn't very noisy at all.
We spent an unforgettable Chrisrmas holidays in this place. I recommend it with pleasure and hope we could stay there again!
Erica, is a very polite and friendly lady. It was great to have her as a host.
She kept everything nice and tidy the whole time
I would sure welcome her again. 100% recommended!
Erica was a lovely guest! A very positive person with great communication skills. The apartment was spotless on checkout and I appreciated all of Erica's feedback. Thanks for staying :)
Erica was a perfect host, easy to communicate and very friendly. The apartment was very clean at the end. Thanks for everything !
Erica was a great guest! Communicative, friendly, respectful of the apartment. I wouldn't hesitate to have her again!
Erica was the perfect guest, we had an easy and very clear communication, her stay, checkin-checkout was uncomplicated. She was super helpful, understanding and very respectful of house rules. I would consider myself lucky to host her again! Highly recommended :)
Erica is a terrific guest - I always enjoy hosting fellow Airbnb hosts because I find they are the bests guests of all! Erica - come back soon!
Erica and her partner were wonderful, kind, clean and respectful of our home. The place looked just a clean as when they first arrived. She made the set up and key drop easy and seamless. I would highly recommend them as guests. Erica is great!
It was very nice having Eric and Erica here at the apartment. They are very respectful and really nice. I hope to have them back again here!
Simpaty, kindness and joy!
Always a pleasure meet someone like you, guys!!!
Hope to see you back ;-)
Erica was a fantastic guest. Precise, clean, friendly, interested in the history, art and traditions of the city and open in sharing previous travel experiences. I had a very plesant time with her and her boyfriend.
They will always be my most welcome guests anytime they come back to Sicily.
Erica is a wonderfully nice person who makes for a great host. She's a very good writer and highly motivated within the tech startup scene in New York City. The Upper East Side has some great places to eat, is close to Central Park, and a close walk to the 6 train subway stop makes getting downtown a snap. Would stay with her!
Erica is a good friend and a great guide to New York City. She's always out and about, and can help you find whatever you want, whether it's a speakeasy, late-night perogies or a hot tech startup.
You can't find a better host on airbnb than Erica. She is exceptionally kind, friendly, communicative and organized, as her many positive reviews attest. Actually now that I've seen the pictures I am quite jealous of her apartment.
Erica is one of the sweetest, most considerate people I know. She also happens to be very organized and responsible, though I enjoy spending time with her even more because of her warm and bubbly personality. My two thumbs up are only restricted by the number of thumbs I happen to have.
