From Martha's Vineyard by way of Boston and New York.
My friend and I really enjoyed this apartment. It's in a great location in the West Village (a short walk from the subway), which is a terrific spot to hang out in New York. The apartment is pretty spacious for New York and the full sized kitchen was a bit of a luxury, even though we didn't do much cooking :-) Both bedrooms were a good size and both the double/queen? beds were very very comfortable. Given the layout i.e the bedrooms are next to each other and both off the living room with sliding doors, there is not a lot of privacy, but this was not a problem at all for us. One thing I really appreciated was the cleanliness of the apartment, including the kitchen and crockery etc. We couldn't get wifi when we first arrived but Tim gave us instructions (unplug and replug) as soon as I notified him, which fixed the problem. Whilst Tim was not there to meet us he left out a welcome pack with info and other bits and bobs (check out what's in the basket as there are some useful things like a laundry card). I liked that Tim was contactable but was not in too much contact with us. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment - Thanks Tim.
Tim's place was a great place to stay. We loved being in the West Village close to great restaurants, lively neighborhood, and pretty close access to the subway. The apartment is accurately described on the website. Tim was very easy to work with and provided us with suggestions for places to shop for groceries and places to go out for dinner, lunch and brunch. Everything worked out very well.
Tim and Danielle's apartment was the nicest apartment we've stayed at! They made the key exchange easy, the apartment was spotless, and they were easy to contact and quick to respond. We hope to stay at their large, comfortable apartment - in a great neighborhood - again!
Tim's place was perfect for my brother and our girlfriends do the weekend. Tim was very helpful and accommodating. The place is spacious compared to other places I've stayed in NYC and the building is very safe, quiet and secure.
The area is really cool and chilled out. its close to the subway, Hudson River and the local cafes and restaurants are all quality (especially gaetanas-we loved the place and hosts, go and meet Franky)
Overall a great relaxing weekend-I would highly recommend Tims place!!
Great experience. Exactly as advertised. Perfect launching place for all of NYC. Quiet at night. Nice apartment - right size for couple and our teen-age son.
Tim is the perfect host. He left clear instructions, the apartment lived up to its description (so clean), & the location is ideal. If you want to explore the West Village, this is the place to stay. Within walking distance of endless restaurants, shops, jazz clubs, theatres, & a lovely river walk. The air conditioning worked beautifully in each bedroom, the beds very comfy, the apartment so quiet since it faced the courtyard, strong, hot shower & the kitchen fully equipped. Nice doormen too. My favorite - perusing the 2 bookcases - felt right at home.
Tim was as gracious of a host as they come. He communicated with me and my family before and during out stay, and had great recommendations for family-friendly things for us to do. And he even went above and beyond for me after I accidentally left something of significance at his apartment. It was very kind for him to have made that kind of effort.
The apartment itself is in a terrific location. It's about a mile from a super cool market- Chelsea Market- which is crowded, but so worth a visit. They have yummy bakeries, live music, all kinds of places to eat, bookstores, you name it.
And the West Village location in general was a wonderful respite compared to all of the crowds of Midtown from earlier in the day. It has a much more laid-back, family atmosphere with lots of restaurants, bars and convenient grocery stores.
The lobby doormen were extremely nice and helpful too.
The apartment was clean, well-kept and a perfect size for myself, my husband and our two small kids.
It made our NYC long weekend all the better, and if we ever get the chance to visit again, I would definitely want to use Tim/his apartment again!
Tim and Danielle's apt worked great for us. Perfect location, close to our son, and nice neighborhood. Apt was very clean and bath towels were provided.
Very homey and we would be happy for a return visit.
Wonderful stay! Great location, awesome neighborhood, really clean apartment. TIm was so easy to work with--great communication and worked with us on getting the keys. Would recommend very highly!
We were two couples that shared Tim's place, and although we didn't meet Tim we had an excellent communication about checking in and out.
No other contact was necessary since everything was as described and no issues were comming up. For guests of N.Y. City who love the Village this is the perfect place to stay. We felt very welcome in his cosy decorated home and would highly recommend it to everyone that prefere to stay in a private atmosphere.
Tim is as conscientious and upstanding as they come. He has an extremely livable apartment and always keeps it tidy. Make sure you help yourself to his large collection of books and DVD's.
