We have been roommates for three years, and we enjoy meeting people from all over the world. We have learned a lot about our own city from many of our guests and hope to learn more from you.
Liz and Andrea are SO friendly and have shown me a great sense of hospitality. They also gave me tips about where to go and best ways to get to destinations. This place is really clean and is easily accessible through the (six) subway line.
I had my stay with airbnb three times in three different cities and I can confirm that this is the best experience I ever had!
Ps. I was visiting NY for the NYC half marathon
When the hustle and bustle of NYC can get a little overwhelming, the hospitality of Liz and Andrea is sure to make you feel right at home in this comfortable abode. As a student, the size of this place was just what I needed. Liz and Andrea were great in giving suggestions on where to go, and were extremely accommodating! Had a great stay, thank you very much!
I stayed with Liz and Andrea for 7 days
And I am so happy I did , not only the appartment was cozy , comfy and clean
But also I get to know Liz and Andrea
I really enjoyed staying with them , chatting with them and seeing them every now and then
Not to forget mentioning meeting Andreas great mother , her bf , her sister and Liz's sister which all together contributed in making my experience 5 stars experience
Neighborhood is safe and 2 blocks away from the subway , which takes u to almost everywhere u want
Am sure you read the other reviews so no need to repeat the words
But what I should say is if you want a safe comfortable place to stay in with amazing New yorkers , u shouldnt even hesitate of choosing this appartment
Thanks Liz and Andrea
I would start with the world AMAZING HOSTS!!!
Liz and Andrea really are two lovely people.
They helped me out cause my luggage was delayded and i didn't have any dress with me apart from the one i wore.
They made me feel home straight away, got me a pigiamas, towel and reassured me by telling me "everything is gonna be ok".
It actually went more than ok cause i happened to have such a warm and human connection with them, i felt i shared soo much emotionally.
I was even invited to a great thanksgiving party by Andrea who made me feel like having the most amazing New York Christmas experience ever imagined. Thanks to Andrea, Mike and Mike's brother and sister in law and their lovely neighbor too who joined us for the evening.
I felt like i had been living with Liz and Andrea for such a long time.
Their home was mine as well and i did not feel any pressure whatsoever.
I loved sharing my impression about the city, what i visited, what i liked most. Liz and Andrea were very curious about it, and i found it so nice of them.
Their house is lovely and cosy, very close to the 6 line which gets you easily to the city centre. I felt safe taking the train home even late at night, i just advice to take precautions and being sensible like you would be in any big city. I loved Harlem, it's different from the business and magnificent part of New York which is in the centre, it's somehow a part of the city where i really felt like being home most, so vital as well.
I had a great time one late afternoon going to the market with Liz, i enjoyed doing what a New Yorker would do on a everyday basis. But what i happened by chance to understand from that simple time spent together is how a great woman Liz is, i really connected deeply with her. So i did with Andrea one evening when i got home and we talked so much about ourselves, our lives.
So again i do really advice choosing those two young funny happy ladies as hosts, who will spice up your New York experience for sure.
I travelled on my own but i felt always in good company...
Thanks again to Liz, Andrea and Mike...
I'm gonna miss you guys...
Having had very limited time to plan for my trip to new york, I came across Liz and Andrea's listing at the last minute, the location seemed close to where I wanted to be, and the reviews were excellent.
I'm so happy I came across their listing!
Be prepared to meet two amazing young women, and Mike (Andrea's boyfriend). They will go out of their way to make you feel at home, although the area is a section of the living room, and as many other travelers mentioned, you get the feeling that the entire area is there for you, I slept like a baby every day after too much walking in the city, the girls gave directions and tips on where to go and what to eat (such as dough loco, thanks again Andrea!), in addition to where to shop, what to see, and what to avoid.
The area is safe, off course you have to careful as in every other area, but I came home late several nights, I left to the airport at 3 a.m. without any issues, the metro is very near and it gets you everywhere.
There is a fantastic supermarket just two streets to the back where you can find everything you need, at affordable prices. And a very nice bakery next to it were you can have a quick breakfast to energize and kick start your day. Oh and the entrance to central park where the lake is located is also very near, make sure to check it out, AMAZING!
I loved New York, I would definitely go back again, Liz and Andrea are amazing hosts, believe every positive review you see here, you'll be lucky to stay at their place, I have friends in New York now :).
La estadía con Liz y Andrea fue fantástica. Las chicas son muy amables y han estado dispuestas a todas las consultas y situaciones en mi estadía. El departamento es hermoso y el barrio es un lugar muy bueno desde donde acceder a cualquier lugar de NY. Recomiendo a todos hablar con las chicas para poder quedarse en su departamento en su estadía en la magnífica NY!!
I stayed at Liz and Andrea's apartment for 14 nights and had a great time. Just as the title suggests, it really is a cosy and comfortable space. And even though it's basically part of the livingroom, it feels like your own room and they are both very respectful about your privacy. The apartment is homey and it's nice to get back there after a long day of sightseeing the city. Both girls are really kind and great hosts and will help you with anything if you need something. Andrea even got me into the Guggenheim Museum for free! Location is great too, less than a ten minute walk from Central Park and lots of stores just around the corner, including a great bakery. I would definitely recommend to stay at this apartment if you are visiting New York and want to stay in a lovely place.
I stayed with liz and Andrea for a week, and had a wonderful stay in Harlem. I was a little nervous to stay there, as I was solo traveling there by myself for the last week of my stay in NYC, but trust and believe it was the best part of my trip, Harlem is very vibrant with a mix variety of people that Make the area a enjoyable place to stay..especially at night.., not to mention that access to Central Park is less then a 10 minute walk from the apartment, and local subways station are near too...which can take you across manhattan and Brooklyn.
I checked in later then i expected, and thought I was going to make liz late for her class, but found her caring and warm personality very welcoming, and she was more worried that I was going to be upset that there was no Internet for the week while I was staying there, but i really didn't mine as I was going to be out most of the time.
I really enjoyed living in the space at the apartment, it was always clean and tidy, the space that you stay in was Immaculate and although its within the living area...you never felt invaded, It is ideal for any single traveler, more so if your going to be out most of the days exploring the city, plus if you find your self not knowing where or what to do while your staying there, Andrea and liz are full of good recommendations.
Liz and andrea are very good hosts, and i really cannot find any reason why anyone would have a problem with living with them on there trip, you would really have to be the biggest A-hole to not enjoy there company, but the positive reviews that you see are there for a reason...they are really that cool and nice.
Liz has a gentle heart, and you are instantly taking back by her kind caring nature, it was always a pleasure coming back to the apartment when she was there, and talking to her, and showing her heaps of photos I took while I was out. She really treated me like a friend rather then a guest..which I really liked.
I saw Andrea only a few time while i was there, but my brief incounter with her was Awesome too, she has a very cool upbeat and Humorous personality, she literally had me in stitches in laughter on are first conversation, she got me a ticket at the museum were she works to see the current exhibition they were showing, which was very good, she also gave me some really cool locations to do some street photography.
I would recommend this apartment, the area of harlem and cool hosts without (email hidden)d will be staying there again providing that there not fully booked up. My only complain is that I wish I'd spent my whole trip there......I miss that space :(
My stay at Liz and Andreas' place was perfect!
Sleeping facilities behind the curtains was not a problem at all. They were both very quiet, and I didn't wake up once during my 14 day stay.
On arrival, Liz met me at the door, and nothing like; a friend of a friend will give you the keys etc..
For those who are interested, they are like lexicons when it comes to New York. Questions about the neighborhood or subways? They got all the answers!
The price is also quite good if you gonna stay in NY and are cool with 15 min subway ride to Lower Manhattan..
See you later!
This was a great space to stay in while in NYC. Given its cost and close proximity to Central Park and the Metro (that can take you straight to downtown), this is very much recommended! Even though the bed is a sectioned off area, I had privacy and I slept well! For those wondering about the area, I felt very safe. Andrea and Liz were awesome hosts and made me feel at home and my trip very enjoyable. Their recommendations were also very helpful, as this was booked very last minute for me due to unforeseen circumstances. I would come back here the next time I visit!!!
Airbnb users, if you're looking at this, you would best be booking this NOW!
Andrea (Liz's roommate) booked a weekend with us in our vacation rental in South Beach. She was a great guest! As an Airbnb host herself, she was the best renter we could have - left everything practically ready for the next guests to check in! It was fun to talk Airbnb, and since she knows South Beach well herself, to trade restaurant tips.
Elizabeth was an ideal guest in our home -- very polite, communicative, and considerate of our rules at all times. We'd recommend this guest, without hesitation, to any Airbnb host.
Elizabeth rented my apartment for her friend Andrea & boyfriend from NYC to come down for a wedding. Although I didn't get to meet them personally I am very confident to say that they are amazing human beings. They were constantly in touch with me keeping me updated of their travel situation and also they were very accessible in all phone communications. The apartment was returned in great shape. A good bond was left along with a "thank you" note and a lovely pic. I look forward to see them in a not so distant future.
Thank you guys!
