Our experience at Bob's house was everything we expected and more. The house is beautiful and has everything you might need for a comfortable stay. Even though we didn't get to meet him in person, Bob was always available to answer our questions and assist us. He even left us two bags of coffee before our arrival which was a beautiful gesture, and let us check in earlier since our flight arrived really early in the morning.
The place is even bigger than it looks on the pictures. The kitchen is huge and has absolutely everything you might need to cook. The living room has a big TV with directTV and the couch is really big and super comfy. We were three and one of us slept for 20 days there and didn't complain at all. There's also an electric fireplace which is rarely needed since the house is really warm (We stayed during winter but it wasn't a really cold one).
The shower in the bathroom was excellent and the bedroom was really nice.
There's also a beautiful backyard, which we didn't get to use much 'cause of the weather but seemed like it might be really cool to use during summer or spring.
The location is also very good. There's not much to do in Harlem but the A,C,E and 1 trains are two blocks away, making it fantastic to be downtown in just 15 or 20 minutes (Specially if you take the A train which is an express one, and doesn't stop between 125th and 59th).
The A train will also take you straight to Howard Beach station in an hour or so, where you can connect with the Air train from JFK to go the airport, making it a easy ride.
The neighbourhood has markets, delis, a Dunkin Donuts, Wendys, Starbucks, etc. Everything is really close! I specially recommend Dallas BBQ burgers!
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it couldn't have been better. I would definitely recommend Bob's place and would certainly come back here!
L'host è una persona disponibile anche se non abbiamo avuto modo di conoscerla.
L'appartamento si trova in un ottima posizione per arrivare a Manhattan e all'aeroporto con la metro.
L'appartamento è accogliente!
Great little place. Simple but has everything you need. Unit itself is updated, great little cafe right down the street.
Bob's apartment is conveniently located at the intersection of two subway lines making it very easy to get downtown especially if you take the express A train. Washington Heights isn't the most beautiful neighbourhood but the people are laid-back and the apartment is very nice: garden at the back, lots of sunlight, high ceilings and hardwood floors, fully equipped kitchen, etc. It is a sub-let so there are personal items which I hadn't realized but Bob (and his family, who I met briefly) are very kind and helpful and it wasn't a problem.
Séjour parfait ! Bob a été très réactif et accueillant. Il s'est régulièrement préoccupé de savoir si notre séjour se passait bien et a répondu à toutes nos questions par sms dans la minute.
Le logement est fidèle aux photos ! Rien à dire ! Plein de charme, de cachet et de lumière ! Et quel bonheur ce petit jardin .. Après nos journées à crapahuter dans la ville, une pause de fin de journée à l'air frais (surtout pour la seule fumeuse du groupe que j'étais).
L'emplacement, assez éloigné de Manhattan et de Brooklyn, peut paraître bloquant, mais le métro (ligne A Express à 168th street, ou la ligne C avec stops le long de Central Park) nous a amené en direct à Harlem, aux Cloysters, à Brooklyn (Park Slope / Brooklyn Heights), au cœur de Manhattan (Midtown West/Chelsea/Greenwich/ChinaTown) et même jusqu'à JFK (compter 1 heure de métro).
Le bus 5 aussi une desserte directe depuis la pointe sud de Manhattan. Mais plutôt long (1h30 contre 30 minutes en métro).
Quant au quartier, nous n'y avons pas passé beaucoup de temps et ne sommes jamais rentrées après 22h, donc nous en avons eu une bonne impression, mais je ne garantis pas que ce soit le cas plus tard dans la soirée.
Nous nous sommes régalées et l'appartement n'y est pas pour rien ! Nous étions 3 et dans cet appartement/maison, nous avions chacune notre espace : parfait pour la récup des kilomètres marchés dans la journée !
Bob's apartment is terrific and I would definitely recommend it to anyone! It's located 5 mins walk to J and Z metro lines in a nice neighbourhood where you can easily shop or eat out. The apartment is new, well designed, bright and very clean and has everything we needed during our 7 day stay (and Bob provided us with coffee, which was great). Bob is amazingly responsive and answers all messages very quickly. I would definitely book this apartment again!
As a group of three, we recently stayed at Bob's apartment for one week. We had a great time and would absolutely recommed it. The appartment was bigger than we expected and a really cozy place. Bob was a good host. We did not meet him in person but he was really helpful and quick to answer all our questions. We would really like to come back to Bob's place again sometime!
Bob's place was like visiting an old friend. It was cozy and charming. My husband, my 10 year old daughter and I felt at home. From Bob's comfy sofa to the well stocked kitchen, our stay at his place was very comfortable. we loved his mugs in the freezer, his dishes and cutlery and convection oven. His place has high ceilings so it feels very large though it's not. But you don't feel cramped. There is tons of natural light and the view into the backyard makes you feel like you are in the country. One of our best evenings was listening to a CD on Bob's nice music system that we bought from gospel street singers from walking Central park. The sound was excellent and we all just laid in the carpet listening to it over and over again staring out at the tree outside as tge wind blew and rain poured. The neighborhood is quiet so there were no issues with noise at night. Bob was very attentive and very responsive to our questions via text. We were a little sad when we left his place and that we didn't get to meet him and his wife. The only thing I would forewarn someone about staying in that neighborhood is that it is not fancy, it is a bit gritty.And that's the reason I didn't give it a five star. My best friend would never stay in a neighborhood like that. It would not be a vacation for her. But for us it was part of the cultural experience. There is an elderly Black neighbor, slow moving, that sits in his chair in front of his apt that would greet us every morning as we head it out. My husband loved that he could buy "salt" fish with plantaines for breakfast from the Dominican market in the corner like in his native Trinidad and Tobago. He would wake up early and hang out there. In fact for a corner store, we were impressed how reasonably priced everything was. The store clerks were funny and cool. We also shopped at C town to stock up and the Chinese food restaurant which had amazing food. It was fresh and tasty, not like cheap, greasy Chinese back in San Diego. Other folks were selling clothes in the corner street and we bought 2 windbreakers that came in very handy. The subway was very close and on non commute times, you can get uptown on the A train within 15 minutes. Otherwise it's about 25-40 minutes depending on how far you are and train delays or station closures which we experienced a lot. But we felt like this is what the typical average New Yorker experiences. We also took one bus and the wait time was too much so we stuck with the subway. Overall our New York vacation was awesome and we can't wait to start saving for our next trip there. We would love to stay at Bob's place again.
Very accurate description.
Very understanding people.
Thank you so much.
Bob and his wife are great host, I was comfortable during my staying in the apartment.
Very clean and well organized apartment with nice and clean backyard. Also, very helpful hosts, they guide us to good restaurants and shopping mall in Manhattan. I really recommend this apt for those who plan to stay in Manhattan upper west side.
Bob was a pleasure to have stay. He was very respectful, clean and easy to communicate with. The condo was left spotless and would welcome him for another visit.
Bob and his girlfriend were the perfect guests to stay in our beach home. I was there nice to met them at their arrival and at their departure. We kept close contact by phone, email and text messages. The place was left in perfect order and as clean as I had left it for them. I highly recommend them to be your guests. They are welcome anytime in my home or any of the properties I list. Hope to see you in the future again. Thank you for being the perfect guests!!!!!
Great guest! No problems, easy-going and great to communicate wit. We recommend to all future hosts.
