I work in the motion picture and love to travel.

The apartment had all we needed and the location is absolutely perfect close to everything including shops, bars, restaurants, Washington Square park and transport although we walked to a lot of places as it was so convenient.
Would definitely stay here again when next in New York.
L'appartement était globalement très satisfaisant. Seul bémol indépendant de l'hôte: les travaux de l’immeuble à côté, qui assombrissaient beaucoup l'appartement et commençaient parfois tôt (vers 7h30 le matin).
Pour le reste, tout était conforme à l’annonce et nous n'avons eu aucun souci. L'appartement est bien équipé, conforme aux photos, et tout est fait pour que l'on se sente dans un lieu habité et pas seulement dans un lieu de passage (cuisine très bien équipée notamment).
Nous n'avons rencontré ni John ni Ananda mais quelqu'un nous a accueilli comme prévu (un petit livret d'accueil nous avait préalablement été transmis par mail) et tous nos mails ont eu une réponse rapide.
L'emplacement est idéal (central sur Manhattan, proche de plusieurs lignes de métro) et le quartier est définitivement l'un des plus agréables pour y séjourner.
Location was amazing, walked everywhere including across to Brooklyn and back! Apartment was clean and had everything you needed. Bars, restaurants, shopping are all around the corner, love Greenwich! Only negative was the construction of a big block of apartments going on next door that meant jackhammers and drilling began at about 7am in the morning making a sleep-in impossible!
The apartment had most of the items that we had expected to find - a kitchen, a bathroom; a bedroom with a small but adequate closet, and a living room with air conditioner, TV and WI-FI. Although it was clean it reflected a degree of neglect and lack of maintenance - the cover panels on the baseboard heating panel in the living room had become detached and the bathroom sink had a crack in the bowl. Many of the light fixtures did not have working bulbs in them making the apartment darker than it should have been.
The Murphy bed was in the down position when we arrived and we left it that way throughout our stay. However, with the bed in the down position, neither the bedroom nor the closet door could be fully opened and it left about a foot of space at the foot of the bed which was hazardous navigating around particularly at night.
The absence of certain items did not become apparent until their use became necessary. The first was a bath mat for the shower, without which showering was hazardous because of the slippery floor. We bought a mat and left it in the apartment. The second was a toilet plunger whose absence was noted when the toilet became clogged on our first Monday evening in the apartment. There is now a toilet plunger in the bathroom.
We anticipated cooking at least one meal in the apartment, but realized almost immediately that a major item was nowhere to be found - a table and chairs at which to sit so that a meal prepared in the kitchen could be eaten in the apartment! This lack could have been easily remedied by the host by slightly moving the sofa in the living room to make space for a small table and 2 chairs.
The apartment was wonderful at night and great for sleeping. The bedroom is at the rear and away from any street noise and it is dark. However, during the weekday working hours (7 AM - 5 PM) it was impossible to occupy the apartment due to the incessant jack-hammering and loud yammering conversation of the workmen working on a new condominium next door. We realize that there is nothing the host can do to remedy this negative impact, but more emphasis on its effect should have been mentioned in the description on the AirBnB site.
Of course, the location of this apartment is excellent both for being in this neighborhood and for having transit access conveniently close so that other parts of NYC can be easily reached. And the price makes this rental affordable.
We spent two weeks in NYC at Ananda & John´s apartment. It was amazing! It´s a small apartment, but it´s perfect for a couple. It has every you might need, including a lot of towels and sheets, hair dryer and even small details like scissors and tape.
The location is excellent! Beautiful neighborhood with lots of pubs, restaurants and delis really close. Different lines of subways to go anywhere in the city are also few blocks away.
John sent us a very detailed e-mail the days before we arrived with everything we needed to know about the apartment (including restaurants suggestions-quite helpful by the way-).
We`ll definitely book this apartment again if we go to NYC again!!!!
We stayed in NYC for 4 nights in Johns apartment. Although we never met John, our stay was seamless. The location is fantastic and right in the middle of a busy, funky young area of the city. Great restaurants and bars nearby and great shopping a few blocks away.
The apartment is small and well formed. There was building work next door which started very early (7am) on weekdays. This didn't bother us too much as we were up early and getting out, but it's quite loud. During the weekends, the builders didn't work so was great for our sleep in. Good value and would definitely stay again
Ubicación inmejorables, el apartamento es confortable según los estándares de Nueva York, ruidos de obra lindera a partir de las 7 am, fue difícil la comunicación para el arreglos del ingreso con el anfitrión, resueltos a ultimo momento con la asistencia de airbnb, posteriormente, respuestas rápidas y consejos útiles ante nuestros requerimientos. Severo
La estadia en el apartamento de John fue perfecta, nos ubicamos en el mejor lugar de Manhattan! A metros de Washington Square Park y a pocas cuadras del Soho! El apartamento estaba limpio y con todos los elementos que podriamos necesitar, John estuvo en contacto para los que pudieramos necesitar. De seguro volveriamos! Como unico detalle, estan reformando el edificio de al lado con las molestias que eso puede ocasionar, para nosotros ninguna!
Nous n'avons pas rencontré John, quelqu'un nous attendait à l'appartement et nous a donné les clefs. Mais lorsque nous avons eu besoin de lui pour une question sur le fonctionnement de l'appartement il nous a tout de suite recontacté, il a été parfait.
L'appartement est très bien situé, proche de métros et de nombreux endroits pour sortir dans ce très agréable quartier de Greenwich. Il est vrai qu'il y a de gros travaux à cause d'un immeuble en construction juste à côté mais cela ne nous gênait pas vraiment car nous nous levions tôt et nous ne rentrions que tard le soir. Les photos sur Airbnb correspondent bien à l'appartement qui était agréable, très joli avec le mur de briques. La chambre est petite mais avec des rangements et un lit confortable.
Il serait préférable de vérifier que le ménage ait été bien fait, les serviettes bien propres avant que les locataires arrivent tout de même.
Nous garderons de magnifiques souvenirs de ce séjour.
John was great! I stayed with my young daughter from February 5th until February 12 in his really charming apartment. We didn´t get to meet him but everything was easy with him: our first flight was cancelled because of the weather, we arrived 7 hours later, and yet in 15 minutes we had the keys. We asked for a Microwave, and there it was, new and shiny. Hairdryer? there it was too! The last day we had a very late flight back home, and he had no problem with our leaving all our things there. and use the apartment until the last minute. The apartment is perfect, perfectly located, nice, clean. We didn´t care much about the construction work nearby, it was a little noisy but we could sleep very well anyway. The neighborhood is perfect, we felt very safe, and had a LOT of fun!! Thank you John for making everything so easy, and sorry for writing this review so late ;)
Very nice guest !
John was a wonderful guest. Friendly and tidy. He left the house in perfect order.
