Great apartment in a great location. Reasonably quiet despite the buzzing area and had no trouble sleeping.
All facilities provided as advertised and check-in was straight forward with keys being collected from a local coffee shop.
Communication before and during the stay was perfect.
Our third guest was on an air mattress in the main room which was very comfortable. He did find the sunshine coming through the lounge window woke him up earlier than he would have liked but that is a minor quibble.
Check in was a breeze, easy communication. Place was great, spacious, and in a great location. The apartment was unique and had everything I needed. Bed was very comfortable too.
Overall, everything was great from beginning to end. Location is beyond perfect, as long as you want to be in the thick of the action, which we did. Can be noisy, however, we're talking NYC, it's supposed to be. Hosts are helpful and quick to respond. Little touches were nice, bag of cookies, towles, shampoo and travel cards. Bed was extremely comfortable. It was neat and nicely decorated, just needed a good spring scrubbing (I'm picky). Overall, would definitely rent again. Great experience. Thank you all.
This was our first time using Airbnb and what a great experience! Very centrally located, close to public transportation, parking, dining, and sights in NYC. The apt had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Our staying was pretty nice. The location is perfect. Each time we needed any assistance Tony assisted us quickly. The flat is simple, nothing fancy but you have everything you need. The only negative thing might be the noise due to the street but it did not really disturb us. We will consider to go back when visiting NYC again.
I had a great 3 night stay, Tony met me on arrival and showed me around the apartment. He gave me helpful tips for places to go around LES too. Appartment was clean and had everything I needed.
I had a very pleasant stay at Melissa's apartment and would recommend it to others. Ideally situated in the bustling lower east side.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it went swimmingly. Tony contacted us well before the trip to give me all the details we would need prior to arrival. He was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is quite large for New York and in one of the best neighborhoods in New York. Access to the Subway is right around the corner from the apartment. There is a plethora of bars, restaurants and entertainment all within a mile of the place. I cannot recommend this place enough and thank Melissa and Tony for their hospitality and kindness!
Was in a great location. Tony reached out to me with instructions on how to receive the keys which worked out well. 1 block from subway and walk to lots of bars. Loved the feel of the apartment and was large for NYC. The view down Ludlow was awesome. Thanks for letting us stay!
We really enjoyed our stay in Melissa's apartment. Communication and hand-over of the key went smoothly. Great location and nice view over Delancy. The apartment was just as it's pictured, plenty of light and lots of space. We've been to NYC plenty of times and Melissa's apartment is in one of the best locations- hip stores, great food, easy access to public transportation. Soho and Chinatown were just a stones throw away. The apartment was super comfortable and became our wonderful oasis in the city. Highly recommended.
You were an absolute pleasure to meet- and I am so glad we could make it work for the week. Lots of love to you and your folks and hope to see you here again.
It was a very short stay, but Melissa and her group were very responsible and left the room in good order.
Meli and her crew were wonderful guests. Totally low maintenance, appreciative, and took great care of the place, I would welcome them back anytime.
Meli stayed at the Atomic Ranch while visiting Austin. Check-in/out coordination was seamless. The house was well taken care and left in good order when I returned. I recommend her as a guest and would definitely host again.
We enjoyed having Melissa and guests at the Big Easy Condo. Melissa was communicative, addressed any concerns, and left the place clean. We would recommend her as a future guest, and we hope another visit will be soon at the Big Easy Condo!
Meli booked my home for her husband, who was a great visitor. Everything was tidy and the process was smooth as silk.
Melissa and two friends stayed one night. I now realize I am 99% used to fantastic, clean , respectful guests . It was the first time somebody took things from a cupboard that I consider private and I came home in a temperature of over 22 degrees Celsius. they had left without turning it down. To be honest I feel awkward to write this down, also scared of bad reviews back I guess. On the other hand I value honesty. For myself and the airbnb community.
Meli was a fantastic guest. She is welcome back any time.
Meli was a great guest! Always welcome and highly recommended! A+
Great guests who stayed for a short trip. Tidy and Easy going
I had the pleasure to get to know Melissa and her Husband in early 2011 and had a wonderful stay at their apt. It was my first airbnb experience and it was a blast!
The organisation and responsivenes via email from Melissa was absolutely friendly, fast and very helpful, so even joining the apt. on my own in the first place was no problem, as everything was well prepared and well described, so you should not have to worry about anything.
Melissa and her husband are very busy working and traveling all over this planet, but if you are lucky, you get the chance to know them. And this was for me the best part about stying there! If you want to meet very friendly, very unusual and remarkable persons you can have inspiring and enjoyable conversations with (and share lovely food) then you should stay here!
I enjoyed hanging out and gettin fabulous mac'n'cheese at smac's together big time! And as Melissa loves good food and knows the tastiest nomnoms everywhere, she has a bunch of good hints where to gest the tastiest stuff around!
So if you love good food, good conversations decide to stay in NY and are up to meet extraordinary and lovely people and like to rely on perfect organisation and a stay in a nice apt. then you should choose to stay at Melissa's apt.
Melissa is great! Honest, friendly, helpful. Her and her husband, Aj, are clients of my wife. We have had the pleasure of working and becoming friends with them over the last few years. Great people, doing great things. You're in good hands.
Melissa is a very sweet lady who loves life! She is always traveling the world but her heart is in the East Village. She takes pride in her home and always has it decorated to reflect her personality. Melissa takes being an Airbnb host very seriously and she treats each of her guests like family.
Melissa is one of the kindest and most trustworthy people I know. She is the Queen of Airbnb and will undoubtedly make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Melissa's is the only person whom I know that travels extremely a lot (Not kidding - really it's mind blowing how much she travels with her husband AJ Leon.
I also consider Melissa and her husband, AJ Leon as part of my family on top of as being the best friend and best business partner. I am extremely choosy when it comes to having friends and especially business partners.
I could even vouch that Melissa is one of the nicest people I know because She and AJ Leon are the benchmark for being great and the most awesome. Plus, she's a great person to hang out with.
I have known Melissa for a few years now and have stayed with her and AJ at their ace apartment in the East Village in NYC and travelled with them many times. Melissa is a fabulous person - fun to hang out with, calm in a crisis, great conversationalist, with a totally non-judgemental approach to life. Basically, she's awesome.
I'm one of Melissa's employees and I GOT to tell you something, she's a nice boss/friend to hang out with and also, she's very helpful when the tasks gets really problematic. She teams up with her husband, AJ, making them one of the craziest bunch of couples out there that I want to meet!
No joke about this, because they're amazing.
Melissa has stayed in my flat many times. Her and AJ are a pleasure to host; great conversation, interests and views on life. They travel regularly and have nailed living from their rucksacks. This means they are very organised and leave my flat very neat during and on leaving from their stay.
They are awesome!
Melissa is a kind, generous and very considerate person. I've travelled with her many times - not to mention stayed at her pad in NY - and on both counts I have had not a single complaint.
Fantastic friends! Melissa and AJ stayed with me in Laramie during the "Rise of the cubicle farmer" road trip and I traveled with them in Kenya and Ethiopia in February. They invest their lives and talents in people. Making other peoples lives better seems to be their MO.
Looking forward to hanging out in the LES!
