Mar and James' apartment was in the perfect part of LA for us and their home was clean and well-lit. Mar and James were also very responsive available hosts who were easy to contract regarding any questions during our stay. I would definitely stay with Mar and James again during future visits to LA.
Mar and James were lovely hosts! Their apartment is cozy and clean and a perfect spot to come and go from to explore Los Angeles. I highly recommend them!
I stayed in the appartment for a week and had a really good experience. James and Mar are good hosts and were fast to reply to all my questions. The appartment has got a really good atmosphere and is brilliantly located. I would go there again, if I came back to New York
Mar and James were easy to deal with, and responded quickly to our initial requests. The location was excellent - there are tons of restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, subway stations and laundromats nearby. The place was quiet for sleeping at night. There was no direction on how to adjust the heat, so we found it very cold to start with and very hot later so had to open/close windows accordingly. The kitchen was well equipped, however only one really small frying pan seemed to work well and there was no microwave. The place was a decent size for 2 people. My boyfriend is 6 feet tall and his feet hung off the bed (which was up against the wall) so he found it difficult to stretch out there or on the couch.
Overall we had a great stay and recommend this place.
Mar & James's apartment is ridiculously conveniently located – walking distance to everything the East Village has to offer, and only a block or two from several metro lines.
Talk about being in the thick of it! Saint Marks Place jumps till the wee hours, and the apartment building is right in the middle of the most bustling section, heaving with pubs, restaurants, tattoo parlours and street stalls.
Don't be put off by the slightly grubby main entrance to the building – Mar and James's apartment is lovely! It's clean, super comfortable and has everything you need.
Considering how close to the action it is, it's surprisingly quiet, and we slept very well. The air conditioning in the bedroom was fantastic for the few hot days we had.
Mar and James were also very easy to communicate with, both before and during our stay. They're really sweet people. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you both for a wonderful stay!
My mother in law and her friend stayed at James and Mar's apartment for a long weekend while in the city to visit us. James was very nice and flexible about arranging the key pick up with me. The apartment was clean, spacious and quiet (even though it is on a very busy street!). They also said that they kept nice and cool at night even though we were in the middle of a heat wave (90+ degree heat). We would recommend anyone to stay here and would absolutely have other family members stay here in the future if needed! Thanks James and Mar!
We enjoyed our stay at Mar and James' place. The location is great and convenient, especially if you love to eat and shop. It's walking distance to SOHO and Little Italy. It was also close to subway stations. Mar and James are easy to communicate with and responds fast. Another great thing about them is that they're very flexible about the time.
Mar was a wonderful host, and the apartment met all of our needs! The water pressure was great, the bedroom was quiet, the apartment overall was quite clean, and the living room was full of light. We felt less like tourists on this trip to NYC and more like residents! This apartment is smack in the middle of the East Village action, with tons of restaurants and bars at your door step, as well as a convenient metro station just around the corner. I would stay here again, and recommend it without reservation.
Nous sommes restés 7 jours à New York dans le quartier de Saint Marks Place, l'appartement était idéalement situé, nous avons pu faire la plupart des visites à pied, c'était très bien.
Nous recommandons cet endroit.
De plus les hôtes Mar et James sont très gentils et très serviables, ils n'ont pas hésité à nous donner quelques bon conseils et adresses.
We had a great visit and truly enjoyed our first bnb experience as well. The apartment is in a great spot, easy to access and there's a great little supermarket directly across the street.The Orlin (on J&M's recommendation) for breakfast was truly delicious and this is a fantastic neighbourhood to just walk around!
Mar and James are very pleasant people. Enjoyed having them stay at our home.
A great Guest. Highly recommended. Welcome back anytime!
It was great to have Mar & James come and stay at Pacifica, very welcome guests any time; and good to see them get the Pura Vida vibe from day-one. Be very happy to see them again.
Awesome apartment. Clean, very spacious for the location, well organized. Perfect for a couple visiting the city, since it's right in the center of the East Village.
Mar is a great, great person, who will go out of her way to help you whenever she can. I can't recommend subletting from her more highly.
