I love NY
The apartment was just as described, spacious (especially by New York standards) located in charming and vibrant neighbourhood.
The appartment is in a great location in Lower East Side with everything you need within walking distance: transport, great coffee, grocery store and many wonderful bars / restaurants.
The appartment is located on the 4th floor with a walk up which apart from the small challenge with the suitcases it was fine to handle.
All up we really enjoyed our stay.
The host was very informative, very reachable and the house was as she said.
The house was super clean and easy to locate. The linens felt very high-end, carpets and floors were spotless.
First of all, Joanna is excellent at communicating. She always responds within a few hours (or sometimes minutes!) From the booking process to confirming your arrival details to contacting you the day before you're about to leave, she makes it all so easy.
Wow - what a treat it was to stay in Joanna's apartment! It was exactly how it was described. We were met by Joanna's friend, Roger, who helped us carry our luggage up the four flights of stairs (thank you Roger!). The apartment has everything you'll need: hair dryer, coffee maker, iron, etc. It also has a really peaceful vibe to it. It was tempting to stay in every night! The back bedroom is quieter and darker (which I prefer) and the front bedroom is along the street so there is a bit more noise. Joanna has a standing fan that we put on at night and the white noise would drown out any street noise so we actually slept really well. You never hear any noise from the neighbors or ever see them. It really felt like we were at home.
The area where the apartment is located is surrounded by tons of cool restaurants with lots of hipsters walking around (fyi, be sure to have dinner at Stanton Social) and the subway is only a few minutes away. But, also check out the amazing food in Chinatown and Little Italy, too! There's also a gigantic (and I mean gigantic) Whole Foods about a 10 minute walk and a wine store next door to it with a decent selection of inexpensive wines. I could go on and on but the lower east side has absolutely everything you'll need or want - and I can't even begin to tell you how close it is to walk to SoHo...
Thank you, Joanna, for making our girls long weekend trip so memorable! I can't wait to get back to New York and stay here again! xx
Response from JoLynn:
Thanks so much for being such a great guest! I'm so happy you had a great trip :-)) And thanks for the lovely review. xx
L'appartement est situé dans un quartier agréable, animé, à proximité immédiate des commerces, bars, dinner... et de la station de subway Essex street, ce qui est très pratique....
L'appartement est agréable, lumineux mais souffre malheureusement d'un manque d'entretien flagrant, d'une bonne insonorisation, l'ensemble des équipements étant très largement amorti.
Les chambres sont spacieuses avec une literie de bonne qualité.
La salle de bain est sombre et exigüe avec un aspect "bricolé" indigne d'une location.
L'appartement ne dispose pas de connexion Internet.....il faut dont se tourner vers les commerces de proximité disposant d'une connexion wifi.
Une désinsectisation serait souhaitable car la présence quotidienne de cafards dans la salle de bain et le salon n'est pas très agréable.....
Les parties communes sont vétustes.
Le standing proposé n'est pas en conformité avec le montant du loyer demandé, avec un malentendu flagrant sur l'emploi du mot "renovated"
Great communication and lovely flat in a great location. Really spacious for a NYC place. Comfy beds and a super nice living room to hang out in with comfy sofas. It's an old tenement so has some idiosyncrasies, the steam heating is quite noisy, and the main bedroom fronts onto a busy LES street so bring some earplugs if you want to sleep late.
Flat was great and just what we needed. Great location and plenty of (website hidden) was super helpful and accommodating too. Thanks!
JoLynn was very straightforward and accommodating. Very easy to deal with.
I recently stayed at Jo's apartment with a friend. The apartment was just as Jo had described. Nice and roomy and everything you would want. The area was fantastic, we didn't visit the same bar or restaurant twice - so many within walking distance. Close to transport and a nice 20 minute walk to Soho which was great. The top floor was a bit of a challenge with the suitcases, but once you were in, it was fine. We found the stairs great exercise. The unit was lovely and light and very (website hidden) was a pleasure to deal with - we would definitely stay there again.
The apartment is large and well appointed. It was clean and had everything to make our stay enjoyable. It was close to subways and transportation. We liked the vibe of the Lower East Side and Litlle Italy. Joanna was easy to communicate with and we had no problem moving in or out.
L'appartement est situé dans un quartier très agréable à vivre, de nombreux cafés, restaurants et petites boutiques se trouvent à proximité, c'est un endroit très vivant et à taille humaine.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement de Joanna, on se sent rapidement à l'aise, les photos sont représentatives du lieu, Après de longues et éreintantes promenades dans New York,retrouver un petit nid douillet est un plus.
La décoration est soignée et cosy, chose très appréciable, l'appartement est très propre et vraiment confortable!!
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer notre hôte,mais à notre arrivée une de ses amies était là pour nous accueillir de façon très sympathique
Tout le long de notre séjour nous sommes restés en contact avec Joanna par mail, elle a répondu à toutes nos sollicitations de façon très rapide, nous donnant en prime des petits conseils shopping pour ma fille de 21 ans.
En bref, un appartement très bien et une hôte très disponible.Nous le conseillons vivement à tous ceux qui veulent passer un super séjour sans mauvaise surprise.
Wonderful guests, very sweet and communicative. They were clean and tidy and a pleasure to have hosted in my home. I would definitely host them again anytime!
Thanks for coming. You are great person!
