I never met Willie during my stay at his place. He was, however, in continual touch with me via, telephone, text and email. So, all in all, I guess it worked out. My room was on the first floor of the house, and there was another occupying the other room. She and I got along very good and we had several interesting talks together.
My room was small, but adequate, because I used it mostly for when I was there for sleeping. The other guest and I shared the bathroom and kitchen, but we had absolutely no problems with scheduling its use whatsoever. Towels and linens were in adequate supply, and the kitchen was large and fully equipped with dishes, pots and appliances.
I will definitely consider staying there again and look forward to meeting Willie on my next trip to NYC.
I only have one word for Willie : THANK YOU !!
It was perfect. The place is very nice, cute, quiet, exactly like in the description. And most of all, the host is fantastic, very helpfull.
We had a really great time.
Hope to come back and visit Willie again !
Willie was extremely helpful and very kind to us! The place wasn't the fanciest place in the world but it was quite cozy and nice to stay at. We were provided with everything we needed, including wireless internet, air conditioning (big plus since it was very humid out!) and free parking! It felt like a very safe place to stay and it was relatively close to a lot of stores and restaurants, such as a great pizza place. We felt very much at home at Willie's house and we definitely enjoyed our stay! Thanks for everything Willie!
The reservation was canceled 85 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We stayed four days in Willie 's home at Staten Island.
Willie was a very helpfull, respectfull and warm host ; his apartment was exactly like described on the pictures, in a safe, calm and pleasant area ; we felt very free and welcome in his home. He managed to pick us up at the airport (thanks to him, we were so lost !) , and to drive us another day in Coney Island.
New York is a very tiring and complex city, with huge distances, and we spend many hours in traffic jams, bus, ferry, subway, etc ... (it was our first stay in NYC). Great experience, and great meeting with Willy !
Willie was an extremely helpful, considerate and attentive host. I appreciated the enthusiasm he had for his hometown - NYC. I would definitely stay there again in future...should the need arise!
I had a great time at Willie's apartment. I visited Staten Island to visit some friends and I had them over a few times. The apartment was really spacious and it was great having the freedom to come and go as I pleased. The kitchen was a great plus, and me and my friends ended up cooking a few times.
Willie was a very kind and receptive host. When the coffee machine wasn't working in our apartment upstairs, Willie came to check on the problem within a few minutes and brought up another coffee machine to replace the one that did not work.
The location is great, with public transportation close by, and places to eat not much further.
All in all, I had a great week in Willie's apartment and will definitely be interested in staying here again next time I visit!
I stayed at Willie's Staten Island apartment for 2 weeks in Spring of 2013. The apartment is very clean, sunny, private, spacious and comfortable. The location is very close to public transportation, grocery store, as well as one of the busiest streets in Staten Island - Hylan Blvd. Willie's apartment is situated in a very quiet and safe neighborhood with lots of parking space available on Vista Ave.
Willie provided all basic utilities during my stay at the apartment and always offered his help in case I'd need anything.
Willie is a great guy and an amazing host. He answered all my questions about the apartment. Willie was very patient and quickly returned all phone calls and messages.
It was my pleasure meeting Willie and being a guest at his apartment. I recommend Willie's place to anyone who wants to visit New York AND have a worry-free experience with his/her rental. I will definitely rent Willie's Staten Island apartment next time I visit New York. Thank you, Willie!
We stayed in Willie's apartment for four days on December 2012. The hole experience was great. Willie is a great and attentive host, he was around making sure everything was perfect and he even left us a bottle of wine for the holidays! The apartment was just like in the pictures, comfortable and very clean and well kept.
The location of the house is perfect. To go to the city you just take a 10 minutes walk to a nearby train which will take you directly to the Staten Island Ferry. There is a 24hr grocery store and a CVS Pharmacy nearby.
We will definitely recommend Willie's apartment and will love to stay there the next time we visit New York.
Very nice person. He's a professional paramedic so his focus is on helping others. He definitely went out of his way for me, even paying for my admission to a local club, which was a lot of fun.
I would definitely stay here again. Very exclusive area where the houses around you have Mercedes and BMW cars parked out front. But in the midst of all that high-class living, you have down-to-earth Willie.
Easy walk to the train station and Hylan Blvd and many good restaurants, express busses, etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed having Willie and Alejandra stay with us. They were wonderful guests in every way. They were completely respectful of our home, and left everything clean. We enjoyed chatting with them. They are upbeat, easy going and friendly people. We highly recommend you host them if you get the chance!
Willie and his daughter Where very kind and wonderful guests. They where last minute arrivals. And I was not prepared as much as I should have been. But I don't think it would have mattered much. Willie is very helpful with suggestions and I am very thankful (He also has a place on Airbnb.) Highly recommend them and they are welcome back anytime.
Given I had just set up our listing on Airbnb, I was happy to host Willie and his wife given they are fellow hosts as well. Thank you again and I hoped you enjoyed your short stay at the "Pile Inn"!
I have known Willie Gonzalez for about 12 years as my neighbor. I see him almost daily, and we have become fast friends - almost like family. He is always there to help my husband and myself with anything we need - any type of favor, to borrow something, or to help with a task we can't complete. We know each other's families, and even care for each other's pets. I have only good things to say about Willie and I recommend him for anything he wants to do.
