I'm a writer who came to NYC for graduate school. Now I get the best of both worlds by splitting my time in NYC and PA.

Marylin ist eine super Gastgeberin, sehr schnell und klar in der Kommunikation, super über Email und Telefon zu erreichen und immer sehr hilfsbereit! Die Wohnung entspricht den gezeigten Fotos, sie ist für NYC super ruhig (nach hinten hinaus gelegen) und gleichzeitig super zentral im Bereich East Village / Alphabet City gelegen. Großartig zum Ausgehen und zum Entspannen! Die Aufteilung der Wohnung ist ideal für ein Paar und biete auch für längere (Arbeits-)Aufenthalte ausreichend Platz zum Arbeiten, Schlafen, Kochen + Essen und Entspannen. Definitiv zu empfehlen!
Staying in Marilyn's apartment was great. We were there for a month and it felt just like home. Everything was set up when we arrived. It was a spacious apartment with everything you would need for a long stay. The apartment is on the back of the building so it is very quiet. The only noise we heard was neighbors walking around upstairs. But that's normal for any NYC apartment. The neighborhood is the best - we always stay in the East Village. Amazing restaurants and bars on every corner and Topkins Square park is right across the street. The F train is only 7 blocks away. I would definitely suggest staying at this apartment.
We had a great stay in Marilyn's appartement! It is perfectly located, sourounded by lots of bars, restaurants and not far from the subway. I would definitly recommend this place!
Marilyn's apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient. She was also very responsive whenever I needed to speak to her about something. I would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks, Marilyn!
We had a great stay at Marilyn's. She is a great hostess and answered every query promptly and thoroughly. We didn't actually meet but there was no need to. The apartment is cosy and in a great location in the East Village. There are three rooms so there’s some degree of privacy - a bedroom, living room with desk, and kitchen with table, all pretty much exactly as in the photographs. There’s also enough storage space to unpack completely - important! The keys work, the air conditioning works, the wifi works, there’s even an elevator in the building. It was very clean when we arrived. The East Village of course is a great neighbourhood to be based in and there are three different subways lines pretty close by. The apartment itself is also amazingly quiet, being at the back of the building. All in all, we loved it. Pretty perfect.
We had a very comfortable stay at Marilyn's apartment. It has everything you need to make your stay feel like home. It's in a great location in the East Village, handy to many great bars and restaurants. It's also an easy walk to two different subway lines with good connections to most of the city. Marilyn was a good host, very responsive and helpful with our enquiries. We hope we can come and stay again some time.
My fiancé and I just came back from our holiday in NY which was really great. We stayed in Marilyn's apartment for 11 nights and we enjoyed it very much. The apartment looks nice and cozy, with retro furniture and finishings, very well-equipped kitchen, the most comfortable sofa in the living room (so nice to rest on it in the afternoons after the exhausting walks in the city!), and also very comfortable bed in the bedroom. It is quite spacious for two people, clean and the space is very well organized. The shower worked perfect, the air conditioning was a real plus in the few hot days we had in NY, and so was the elevator, as the apartment is located on the 4th floor. The wifi was fast, the TV does not have too many channels, but if you really want to watch TV you can always find some nice series on the existing channels. We appreciated the small details that showed how Marilyn really cares about her guests, such as the flowers waiting for us in the living room, toiletries in the bathroom, city maps in the living room, online guide book with nice places in the area etc. Thank you so much for all this!
The neighborhood is cool, it seems to be asleep until about 12-1pm, then in the evenings it gets so full of life, everybody is on the streets or in the many cafés & restaurants around, and people seem to have fun and enjoy the life. However, as the apartment is overlooking a back yard, you do not hear the street noise. We could hear the neighbor upstairs moving around the apartment a lot, but if it gets disturbing, one should just tell Marilyn about it. There were a lot of garbage bags on the neighborhood streets especially when we arrived (in the Memorial weekend), which, coming from Austria, seemed strange to us, but later on we found out this is a general problem in NY, maybe a bit more acute in the area where we were.
We did not meet Marilyn in person but our correspondence was very pleasant and she always replied all messages very quickly and in an easy going manner.
If we come back to NY, we would love to stay at Marilyn's place again!
The reservation was canceled 49 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great time staying at the Best Hideaway. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed, although we spent little time at the apartment. Marilyn was responsive to any questions or concerns we had and was flexible in allowing us to check in/check out. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a simple and clean place to stay in NYC. Thanks Marilyn!
Sinceramente, en el apartamento de Marilyn uno se siente como en casa. Es muy acogedor y con una gran ubicación, rodeado de bares y restaurantes de todo tipo. Marilyn siempre ha respondido a todas nuestras consultas y nos ha ayudado mucho. Recomiendo este apartamento para disfrutar del East Village en NYC. ;)
I read Marilyn is an expert host, believe me she is also a special person as a guest.
I started appreciating her kind and friendly attitude in our preliminar e-mail conversation. During her stay she has been relaxed, joyous and polite.
I hope my apartment has been her sweet home in Milan, I wait for her to come back in Italy soon.
Marilyn was super clean, friendly and an overall great guest. I would highly recommend her to any host!
Marilyn was a pleasure to work with from the start and they left our house nice and tidy. Despite the minor water pipe problem we had during their stay, they were very understanding of the situation and I am very grateful.
We would happily accommodate her and her family again at our properties in Japan.
Marilyn is a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely recommend her as a host and guest. Top Notch!
Marilyn and her other guests were great. They were great at calling me with any questions, they were relatively clean and organized and they even left me a nice note with a bottle of wine! I would have them as guests again anytime.
Stayed at the Berwyn PA house and it was an excellent experience. Room was clean and bed was extremely comfortable. The rest of the house follows suit and is not only clean but well decorated. You'll definitely feel at home. Highly recommend!
Cute apartment in the heart of the East Village. Very clean, sunny & quiet. Marilyn was great to rent from - Trustworthy, nice and professional. I'd rent from here again in a heart beat.
Great Place. Very clean. Easy going and friendly. Great Neighbourhood
