Brian's place is perfect for a stay in nyc. funky, clean, super functional, and all the creature comforts you'll need. it's close to great food, and some fun to visit nyc establishments (katz's deli, russ & daughters). plus, Brian is a lovely host - open, communicative, reliable - he gets it. definitely recommended.
Amazing apartment!! My fiance and I weren't able to meet Brian, but his husband Kelly greeted and showed us the apartment. Kelly was super nice and summarized everything we needed to know about that apartment. The place is surprisingly huge for the lower east side and the interior decor is super cool. The living room is setup with an awesome home theater system and projector. The location is perfect! We love the LES and the apartment is close to everything! Kelly and Brian went the extra mile with a list of great places to eat! We used a lot of their recommendations. The washer and dryer was a great extra as we were coming from Europe and stopping in NYC before going back to San Francisco. We were able to do our Europe laundry before going home. The apartment was very clean and had every amenity needed. The heat worked perfectly and kept the place nice and toasty on a very cold weekend in NYC. The apartment is a great value considering the location, space, and style of the apartment. Highly highly recommend this place!
Brian was an excellent host. I had problems arriving on time due to flight delays, and Brian totally worked with me on timing of the key handoff. Beyond that, he is an all around nice guy who was more than accomodating.
The apartment itself is perfecto. Nice furniture, kitchen, living room (projector TV!), bedroom, bathroom. It was just wonderful. So spacious. WARM. We actually stayed in both nights as opposed to going out because we were so comfortable.
I can't wait to visit again. My only hope is it isn't all booked up in the future :)
Thanks again Brian, your place really made our vacation great.
Brian and his husband Kelly were incredibly helpful - they were very accommodating with the arrangements to do the key exchange and they brought an iron to the apartment for me for my job interviews.
The apartment itself is amazing by NYC standards - incredibly spacious and modern, and the location is right in the heart of the LES. We walked everywhere during some very cold weather, but the apartment was so centrally located that we could do that.
Will definitely stay here again.
A stunning place held by stunning people. The appartment is located in a charming place, close to everything (subway, restaurants, bars, markets...) ideal to discover New York and to enjoy what the city can offer ! It is also a beautiful appartement all equipped, nicely designed and so lovely with brick walls and parquet flooring. My host was the most welcoming and thoughtful, and I recommend staying in his place to all who wants to enjoy a perfect stay in NYC !
Brian was a great host and his place was incredible for the price. Very spacious and clean apartment w/ kitchen right in the heart of the lower east side district. Lots of shopping/ restaurants /bars within a few blocks. Watching TV was a unique experience as it was projected on a huge white wall by a projector. Very impressed with the interior design too. Bathroom was clean and seemed recently remodeled.
When we arrived, we found the Beastie Boys album cover for Paul's Boutique with a "you are here" sticker showing the apartment we were staying at right on the cover. That was the icing on the cake. Next time I'm in NY, I'm hoping it's available again!
Brian was quick to respond and very easy to deal with.
The loft is really nice and spacious. It's a beautiful place.
They left some beers in the fridge for me, that was really cool.
They have a really nice projection system. I watched a game of the NBA finals and it was a great experience.
They have a walk in shower that was really nice. They had extra towels and blankets also.
I stayed there alone but I think 4 people could stay there comfortably.
I was travelling the week before so Brian took the time out to FedEx the keys to me in Minnesota.
The apartment is in the heart of the lower east side with bars and restaurants all around. You step out the door and you're right in the mix of at all.
All in all, I fully recommend this place. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.
Both were excellent guests that were easy to reach and were very flexible to a issue with entrance codes which thankfully were resolved. The apartment was in great shape when returned and Check Out was smooth! Both are more than welcome again next time they find themselves in SF!
