I am a Norwegian freelance journalist. I lived in New York for 4 years.
I am renting out my cool, spacious studio apartment in East Village on the 5th floor. It's facing the back yeard, has 6 windows and is perfect for 1-3 people.
Kjersti apartment was fantastic. It was great location, on the border of soho and Chinatown with canal street and broadway just a walk away. The only negative is the three flight of stair climb to the apartment but it is definitely worth it! The apartment is fully equipped with fridge and oven and utensils and condiments to make cooking easy. The television has well over 100 channels and the bathroom shower is great! The bedroom is great however the bed did feel small for a queen bed and, unlike some rented apartments, still contained all of Kjersti's belongings. This did not pose a problem to us however, in fact made us feel quite at home! Overall the apartment was fantastic- we had the most brilliant two week holiday stay over Christmas and New Years and would not stay anywhere else! The location has an amazing vibe to it with plenty of groceries and amazing restaurants and just a 2 minute walk from the subway! Definitely stay at her apartment for your trip to NYC!
Kjersti's apartment was perfect! Picking up keys was really easy and the apartment is in the best position right in the middle of everything that's happening and by NYC standards it was very quiet. The apartment was really clean and had everything we needed. Kjersti left us some great tips on the area and we'd definitely stay again.
Me, my husband and our little baby daughter stayed with Kjersti. We loved it! When we walked through the door, we couldnt stop smiling. Everything was so nice and clean. We just knew that we and our baby would have a wonderful stay here. And we did!! Kjersti is an amazing host! So sweet and very reliable.
She will help you with anything. She left us with a lot of tips and tricks in NY and the local area. And about the ares - OMG! We have been to NY before, ( and Im glad... ) , because we didn't really have the urge to see anything else besides her neighborhood. You have everything you need there...
We loved it at Kjerstis, and we will give our best recommendations to her and her wonderful and cozy place.
We had great time in NYC in Kjersti apartment, everything was clean and renovated. The apartment is really well located and the area is so nice and trendy! (a lot of restaurants and bars in Nolita near Soho...). Highly reccomended!
The apartment is extremely well situated in the heart of East village. There are plenty of bars and nice restaurants in the surroundings. Atmosphere is very nice and secure. The building is quite old, so there's no lift but house is very cute and comfortable! Kjersti is very nice and reliable. She left us some flyers to order food, also a note with plenty of information about the neightbourhood and some chocolates! We were delighted to stay here:)
Great place, excelent location, very easy to move all around the city with the L line that cross from E to W.
The apt was exactly as shown, and Kjersti was very kind leaving us a lot of tips to do in the area!
Definitivamente volveriamos al mismo lugar!! Gracias Kjersti!!!
Great Place, Awesome City and Lovely host. 3 lads came over from England and the apartment was perfect. The area is really cool - loads of little bars and cafe's. The apartment itself is really nice and clean (at least when we got there: Sorry Kjersti ;-) Highly reccomended for anyone wanting to see the Real NYC. Thanks again.
Picking up the Keys was drama free and simple using a local coffee shop as a go-between.
The apartment is a typical NYC East Village one bedroom. Hardwood floors, 2 main rooms with a small kitchen and bathroom.
There was another couple staying there the week before we got there, and they did a good job of keeping the place clean.
The walk up to the 5th floor with luggage can be tough!
The bed wasn't as firm as what I'm used too, so I had some soreness in my lower back as a result.
I'd use Kjersti's apartment again in the future.
L'appartement de Kjersti est vraiment très bien situé, il est calme et le quartier est très sympa. Juste à côté il y a un très bon café pour prendre le petit déjeuner. La ligne de métro très proche nous emmène dans toute la ville, les bus également. L'appartement est idéal pour un couple, il est propre est très bien chauffé l'hiver.
Staying at Kjersti's was a perfect location for lower manhattan . Her apt. Was clean and quite. I would stay there again. Cheers Hunt
WAS AN AWESOME GUEST AND IS A VERY KIND PERSON
I WOULD HOST HER AGAIN AND AGAIN WITHOUT HESITATION
MY PLACE WAS LEFT IN GREAT CONDITION
OVER ALL WAS A VERY NICE EXPERINCE HAVING HER HERE
IF YOU ARE A HOST CONSIDERING HER AS A GUEST YOU HAVE MY THUMBS UP
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
I am delighted to say that Kjersti and her guests were a pleasure to have. They were very respectful and appreciative in the best manner possible, especially taking advantage of the Chef’s kitchen and other great features in the Loft’s various spaces. They also seemed to enjoy the private location in the Jewelry/Knowledge District, close to Downtown Providence so that they could easily walk or park & drive. There is more and more to see and do every month right nearby that I believe they took advantage of. Kjersti is a super guest, is very responsible and is most certainly welcome back anytime. I highly recommend her to other hosts as a very fine and honorable guest.
Kjersti was an amazing guest. she was on time and left my aparment in excellent condition, exactly the way i gave it to her. She even left me gossip magazines!!!!
