Excelente apt. Excelente ubicación. Cerca subway y caminando a muchos sitios. Gracias!
great apartment. clean, sunny, bright. i thought it was an excellent value, and the hosts were super helpful in making sure everything worked great.
my one (small) note for visitors from our of town, is that this is not the quietest of locations. its on a quiet street, and there was absolutely no neighbor related noise, but the building is situated close to a major avenue with tons of traffic, ambulances, firetrucks,etc. i had a hard time sleeping as a result ... but thats an issue in most places.
i would definitively stay here again.
I don't know where to start. It was my first time booking a place on airbnb and it was better than expected...
- The apartment: its exactly as shown on the pictures. Not only the decoration is beautifully cool, but its also a very comfortable and cozy space. Two of the things that aren't shown on the pictures are the bedroom (which trust me, is very nice an neat) and the view! Its waaay nicer than the picture can show.
- Location: i think its a huge plus. Not only is located 1 block away from the subway, but it's also surrounded by really nice local bars, small boutiques, food stores, etc. I thought it was going to be noisy during the weekend's nights, but although you hear people talking on the street, you will not lose your sleep. Everything is also on a walkable distance, and it feels safe to walk around the neighborhood during the day and night.
- Check-in: we had a couple of issues because of the weather and we couldn't arrive on the scheduled time. But that wasn't a problem. They were very attentive and helped us through with it.
Id def recommend Meli's place and I'd stay here over and over again.
Great location, nice view, elevator building, good-sized apt.
The place could have been cleaner, though. We also wished there was another place to sit besides the sofa; there's certainly room for a table and chairs.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Misfit Oasis. Awesome location, very cool and inspiring apartment and an incredible view. The LES is such a fun place to be and Meli's apartment is in the heart of it all. I didn't get to meet her directly but her bro-n-law Tony was very accommodating and even helped me when I thought I had lost the keys (accidentally left them at apt when I left in the morn. Thanks again, Tony!!). I'll be back for sure.
Superb location in LES and a very spacious and comfortable apartment. Easily accommodated 3.
Loved the place. Convenient location near subways, elevator building and great place to park your stuff and walk around to lower east side, east village, Chinatown etc. the wall art and mason jar glasses are really cool. They even left us closet space. Tony was a super responsive host and a great communicator. I had a small problem and it was resolved ASAP. If there were host awards for service I'd nominate them. As far as the noise that others mentioned, it is not as bad as I imagined. I have a sensitive 1 year old who slept through it every night- it was really only noticeable on the weekends. But it's NYC and not Montana.
Melissa's Place is great. Right between East village and chinatown and very close to Katz's deli. Her Brother waited for us and showed us around. It. is a little bit noisy but hey thats the big apple.
This was our first stay with Airbnb and i only have positive things to say. Everything worked out perfect and Melissas appartement was all we hoped for.I initially booked only for me and my two Children, but then my sister decided to come and Melissa was fine with that -Thank you! Her brother in law Tony was really nice and easy to get in contact with. The first night, the inflatable bed lost air and my son ended up sleeping on the floor but Tony immediately fixed us a new one! I really recommend this place and I would go back any day!
Melissa's was a fantastic place to stay and it was in a great location in LES. The apartment was clean and modern with a nice comfortable couch. The bedroom and bathroom were a perfect size. It was great to have air conditioning and an elevator. I also loved the artwork and the chalkboard. Thanks to Tony for greeting us and showing us around the apartment while Melissa was out of town. Thanks Melissa for enabling us to have such wonderful memories of NYC :)
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
Meli & partner were very nice guest, very reliable. They left the flat very clean. It was a real pleasure for us to welcome them. 5 stars guest !
Mélissa n'a eu aucune communication avec moi. Il s'agissait d'une pré-réservation 7 jours avant l'arrivée qu'elle a confirmée 2 jours avant la date prévue en disant qu'elle arrivait mercredi soir sans autres informations. J'ai dépensé beaucoup de temps d'énergie et d'argent à téléphoner aux USA, envoyé des mails pour lui donner les instructions d'arrivée et les coordonnées des accueillants sur place. Elle ne les a jamais contactés et passait par moi avec des messages très succins sans répondre à mes questions Je n'ai donc pas pu l'informer que HADOPI avait bloqué le WIFI dans l'immeuble pour cause de téléchargements abusifs. Au bout de 2 nuits sur les 3 réservées, elle a quitté l'appartement sans explications pour aller à l'hôtel. Il n'(email hidden) d'état des lieux de sortie. Je n'ai rien compris à cette jeune femme qui a pourtant de très bon commentaires. Les locataires actuels sont enchantés, donc à part le problème Hadopi, je ne vois pas et j'aimerai bien qu'elle me contacte pour m'expliquer ce qui s'est passé !
Melissa visited KL with her colleagues and had a great stay at our place. I recommend communicating with Jessie if possible as she is more of the organiser of the group, so faster responses and full understanding of the groups itinerary.
Great, friendly communication, and left the place perfectly clean and well taken care of. Happy to host anytime :)
Melissa was great! Very communicative and clean.
Melissa and her crew were lovely house guests. The communications before booking were easy and timely. Upon arrival we met and hung out for about 20 minutes to learn more about each other. Upon check out the house was left clean with the sheets in the wash and the blankets folded nicely. I gladly give Melissa a thumbs up!!
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!
