We (Helen and Patrick) are both from Australia. For the last three years we have ben living in New York.
We had a wonderful time at Helen and Patrick's place! This part of NY is great: relax, easy going, lots of nice places to go for food / drinks. The appartment is small, but was very practical and tidy. For 4 people, need to be 2X2. We were 2X1X1 for which it is not really suited, but we managed. Thanks for the warm welcome, H&P. Being able to stay at your place was definitely an important aspect for making our stay as enjoyable. Very warmly recommended to anyone wanting to stay in E village.
Everything went well and smooth ; unfortunately we didn't have a chance to meet either Helen or Patrick in person but we exchanged a lot of e-mails prior and during our stay and they were very kind and helpful.
The location is great = both the lively neighborhood and the general situation (easy to travel uptown or to brooklyn for instance).
The apartment itself is just as described and furnished with everything that we needed (wifi, laptop, towels, even a welcome pack of snacks and drinks :).
If i am to really say something, that'd be if you're super sensitive to noise, in my opinion the acoustic of the building/apt is not very good and you might hear the neighbors or the street, especially from the bedroom. But that was still fine by me and in the end it is a super place to stay for 2-4 people.
Perfect location! Even if the house was not big, it was perfect for us (we were 4). The neighborhood is safe and near to the subway. Helen provided us some snacks She is kind and she found the solution for all our needs. The chrome os laptop was really useful. There was also a wifi connection.
The experience in Helen's apartment was perfect. We needed an apartment to host a group of three men for a week in nyc.
Helen's place was everything we needed:
1. fine location, in a quiet and silent east village neighbourood, 5 min walking from the subway
2. enough space for the 3 of us: the apartment has a large living room + kitchen with a queen sized bed sofa and a queen sized bedroom with a wardrobe
3. full service: in the apartment there is a full functioning kitchen (althoug we did not use it) and a large fridge. wifi internet and a laptop were free to use. Helen was to kind to leave chips, coke and water for us. the bathroom is not big but functioning and water was always hot
I totally recomend the place for eveyone who wants to spend sometime in the big apple feeling like at home
Patrick and Helen were lovely and perfect guests: clean, tidy, considerate and friendly.. Highly recommended and welcome any time.
I never met Patrick or Helen and they left the apartment as they found it. So they were really the perfect guests. Easy to communicate with, clear about their needs and plans. They are welcome back. Thanks
très sympathique, à recommander sans modération !
This was our first time renting out our apartment via airbnb and it couldnt have been to a better couple. Patrick and Helen communicated excellently and were very respectful. In all honesty I could hardly tell they were even there. They definitely would be welcome to stay anytime.
Patrick è molto simpatico e sorridente. Lui e Helen sono stati due ospiti corretti, cortesi, puliti e rispettosi (Patrick is very nice and smiling. Helen and he have been two correct, polite, clean and respectful guests)
Patrick è stato puntuale, attento, interessato, preparato su cos avrebbe voluto vedere. Sono felice di averlo ospitato
Patrick est quelqu'un de très sympathique, serviable et bien éduqué.
Patrick was a great guest! He is always welcome
Helen and Patrick were very easy guest. They kept the place clean and I think they enjoyed their stay in Amsterdam. Definately recommend them! They are always welcome back!
Patrick was a great guest. No problems, left the apartment tidy.
