We've stayed at this apartment for a whole week. Is very clean and comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet, compared to the city center, which allow us to have very good night sleep. Great supermarkets nearby open 24h. Very close to Jazz bar Smoke. Chris was wonderful even when we forgot our keys at home, he manage to send us another set although he was away. Never had any problems to get home by subway every day. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who goes to NYC.
Very clean and comfortable.
Had to pick up the keys at an alternate location, and had to use paypal for the security deposit, never met the host.
The apt is furnished as shown--very clean and quiet. Chris was punctual, cordial, and helpful. Great location for subway connections. Wonderful neighborhood with lots of good restaurants and all necessary conveniences. We would stay there again.
The apartment was as advertised and larger than i imagined. Chris met us on time and was easy to communicate with. Great location near two train lines- would definitely recommend to anyone visiting new york.
Chris was very easy to work with. The apartment was as advertised. The location was perfect for our needs.
the apartment was just as described and therefore expected - spacious, clean, safe, superbly located only a block from the metro and contained everything we needed. Chris was a great host. he always met us on time, was always contactable and made an excellent guide book replacement. we were there for 10 days and our only drama was we lost the heat (and hot water) for a night - but Chris's relentless nagging of the super meant it was restored by the time we needed to use it. You might want to be aware of this if you are staying in winter and that sort of thing would worry you. For us it was no hassle and Chris did an awesome refugee mission and brought us enough heaters and blankets to survive even Siberia. all-in-all it made a great home away from home and i wouldn't hesitate to reccommend staying with Chris and Sylvie.
Chris is a genial host. He arrived promptly at the time we had agreed on, to give us an orientation to the neighborhood and the key. The apartment is safe, warm, clean, and homey. We couldn't have asked for more. The neighborhood has every convenience and amenity you might need. We heartily recommend this apartment. Thanks, Chris.
We stayed at Chris's apartment for a whole week, in December 2009, and only have great things to say about it!
The apartment itself is quite big, comfortable and - really important if you're visiting during Winter time - very warm, due to the powerful heating system.
All the utilities (micro wave, fridge, etc) were functioning and the neighbourhood is very pleasant and calm. Nearby is great commerce (like the wonderful Westside Market, open 24 hours a day) and transportation. We had no trouble returning home everyday, using the NY subway.
As for Chris, he's a great host, truly helpful with everything concerning both the city and our stay, and trustworthy.
We would recommend everyone who's going to New York to say at Chris's apartment!
We would recommend everyone who's going to New York to say at Chris's apartment - as he really made us feel like home!
Thanks Chris for hosting us. Our stay in the big apple was really amazing and the apartment was just as we expected it to be : nice, clean and well located.
Chris also accomodated us on various levels, and gave us lots of useful advices.
I can only recommend Chris' apartment if you wanna a great stay in NYC!!!
Chris & Sylvie are very good.
Chris knows lot of things.
The apartment is spacious and clean and all furnished for cooking. I highly recommend the apartment if you're interested in an experience of NYC that mirrors that of the locals.
I have not had the pleasure to meet Sylvie and Chris because I was traveling in Sicily. However we had some very good contacts and I had the good praise from my neighbors who meet them. The apartment was left in perfect order. I hope we can meet next time. Maybe in New York ...!
Chris et Sylvie sont très sympathiques leurs deux enfants sont très mignons. Le logement était très propre au moment de leurs départ. Une famille à recommander.
MERCI a cette adorable petite famille d'avoir séjourné chez nous
nous avons passé des moments agréable pour les feux de la st JEAN
Nous espérons vous revoir Roxy attend les enfants
Bonne fin de vacances
