This is truly a lovely place to stay and Laurie is the best host! I can't recommend it more highly. The apartment is small but very tasteful and comfortable, and right in the heart of the West Village surrounded by tons of cute restaurants and shops. Laurie was so friendly and very responsive even when we had last-minute delays getting into New York.
Laurie was a wonderful, kind host. She was constantly offering help and information if we needed it and at the same time was discreet and respectful of our privacy. She really enjoys hosting and meeting people and we had a great time staying with Laurie. The flat was very clean and the location is fantastic. Anywhere Laurie makes her home is a wonderful place to stay. We were fortunate to meet her and make a new friend.
we had a very pleasant stay at laurie.she is a really nice and welcoming hostess. always available, even on the phone to help us find answers to our questions. thank you for all laurie ...
Laurie is a truly wonderful host and person. She was kind, helpful, and attentive, but still gave me my personal space. Literally, she is the perfect host! The guest room is cozy with nice artwork, plenty of free storage, complimentary toiletries, beautiful hardwood floors, and most importantly, a very comfortable bed. I did not use her kitchen, but I did spend a little time in her rocking chair one night (which was great). The West Village is one of my favorite neighborhoods in all of New York. A magical little area with tons of great restaurants and shops. An easy walk to Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, SoHo, Union Square, etc. - I never had to purchase a single Metro ticket during the weekend. Thank you Laurie, and please let me know when you come to Stockholm!
Laurie and Violet could not have made my daughter and I feel more welcome and at home. The entire apartment is so tastefully decorated, smells so clean and the bed had luxury bedding that knocked me out the moment I laid on it. Even with the outside city noise I slept like a baby! The location was primo for the West Village, Meatpacking, Chelsea and Soho. We walked all over easily with tons of top NYC restaurants, bars and shopping within blocks. If I don't return it's only because I've permanently moved there and am begging on Laurie's door to let me live there forever.
We have enjoyed a wonderful week in Laurie's place. This was my first time traveling to NYC, and Laurie was a great host to generously provide all information we need from transportation between the airport and her place, to recommending the laundromat at the corner to us. Violet was so lovely and sweet that we enjoyed our time with her everyday.
The location is perfect with easy access to major subways, very close to the Chelsea Market, High Line and many good restaurants nearby. I'll definitely recommend her place and will come visit again in my next trip to NYC.
Laurie and Violet made for perfect hosts! Laurie's apartment is ideally located close to the subway and some absolutely amazing restaurants (you must try Barbuto!) and the bed is out of this world!
I couldn't recommend a stay with Laurie any more highly, I'll be back for sure!
Great 4 nights stay at Laurie's home. The location is one of the best, at the crossroads of all metro lines while the evening charm of West Village balances NYC intensity very nicely. The apartment is sunny and charming as described. Laurie knows the city by heart, she gave us great advice on what to see and when. Thanks to her, we had a really good time!
Response from Laurie:
Having you here was a real pleasure. Thank you for being so neat and thoughtful. Come back any time! Bon Voyage!!
What a wonderful, friendly and hospitalbe host is Laurie! She was caring, helping me to find my way in NYC and made me feel comfortable. She recomended me were to go so that I realy enjoyed the best of NYC and even took me an amazing night out!
Her apartment is very centraly located in one of the best districts of NYC, with nice restaurants and a subwaystation just around the corner. I highly recommend it!
Laurie was a great host, friendly and very accommodating. The apartment is in the best location possible, with access to all the subway lines I needed. The apartment was clean and quiet.
I would definitely stay at Laurie's place again.
As a fellow New York City dweller, and a good friend of Laurie's for over fifteen years, I can say, that Laurie is the consummate New Yorker and host of all hosts.
I live in lower Manhattan and needed a place to stay for a few days while my apartment was having some work done, so I connected with Laurie. For me it was alike a mini-vacation to stay at another location in NYC, and especially one that is so close to all of my favorite places!
Every inch of Laurie's home is filled with warmth and beauty - her attention to detail is unsurpassed. She is the sweetest and most attentive of people I have ever known, and treats everyone with care.
Look no further, Laurie is simply the best.
Laurie! my good old friend in NYC whose place is amazing for staying. I am even missing the comfortable bed, cozy sofa and clean bathroom...I spent my wonderful two weeks there in Greewich village. It makes me feel I was home with unbelievable relaxation and pleasure. Hope to go back to NYC and share more good times with Laurie in the future.
Laurie loves New York City and has mastered the art of living in the city: she lives in the best neighborhood, knows the best people and goes around the very best places. I am sure it isn't mere luck; Laurie treats people so kindly and inspires each and every brain she finds. I would chose her over any other New Yorker around here.
Laurie is an amazing host and has the best ideas for enjoying life and New York . Every time I meet up or hang out with Laurie I have the best time. There aren't enough adjectives or enough space to describe how AWESOME she is .
Laurie is a perfect host, friend and a buddy to travel with. She is easy to be with, fun, resourceful and outgoing that it would be really a shame if you miss out on letting her stay with you or staying at her home. She is dependable, fun, clear and powerful communicator, clear in her actions and speaking and just completely someone you can trust and count on.
Enjoy being her guest or having her as a guest!!!!!! you will be satisfied
Laurie is an amazing human being who is all about integrity. Warm, fun and someone who makes things happen. If you get the opportunity to be a guest of hers or to have her as a guest, she will likely be a connection for life. That's just who she is. Good people...as they say.
STOP YOUR SEARCH RIGHT NOW! Luck you to have the opportunity to find an amazing apartment AND the most incredible woman you'll meet in ONE! Laurie is very special, very fun, extremely clean and responsible, gives the best advice, and has excellent roommate skills. Do not let this opportunity pass by.
Laurie is a dear dear friend of mine through the NYC music community, and one of the most positive and supportive people I know. Always smiling, always there to perk you up when needed, always there cheering (loudly) when appropriate, or to offer counsel when asked, she is a shining example of what we can all be at our best, and anyone who has the chance to cross her path - either as a guest at her place, or hosting her at yours - is a lucky person indeed.
Laurie is one in a million!! A true "I Love New York"-er, she knows every square inch of the city and is the most high energy, enthusiastic fun person on the planet. She is also super-clean, organized, her place is spotless, and she embodies the utmost in integrity and honesty. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I would give Laurie 100 stars!! Definitely choose Laurie - you will be delighted you did !!
Laurie is a gracious host with a welcoming personality. She will make you feel at home in one of the best, most convenient neighborhoods in New York as well as give you space to contemplate your next adventure. The apartment is clean and neat. You will have a fantastic time!
