I run a tech startup and travel back and forth between the Right Coast and the West Coast :)
The apartment was better than expectation, is well located in a friendly and interesting neighborhood.
I had amazing stay in SFO. Nice apartment , hardly 5 min away from my office. I never had such a comfortable stay in SFO so far :) , I am glad i got Perry's apartment. She is a very nice host.
The apartment is nice. The trains next to it make a continuous noise. You may cope with it or get used to it at some point. I didn't. I've tried to shorten my stay since it was accepted in the airbnb interface and never could get to an agreement with the host.
So I left the flat 3 days earlier but still payed the full stay...
Response from Perri:
This is not my NYC apartment - this apartment is in SF and no longer listed.
Perri's apartment was amazing. Really comfortable, warm and cosy. She also accepted a last minute booking. Highly recommended!
This apartment is great!!! I stayed here for about two weeks and it was a total pleasure! The apartment is really comfortable, exactly like pictures show, LOVELY! I didn't get to meet Perri but she was always fast to respond to any questions I had! The location is amazing!! a few blocks away from union square which is my favorite place in manhattan, and a block away from the beautiful Gramarcy park! The most amazing thing about this apartment is how quiet and peaceful it is! So you can get a good night sleep after enjoying the city. Thank you Perri for this great experience!!
I had a such a great trip to NYC. Staying at Perri's made the big city feel so much more like home. I personally really couldn't ask for more in a location, with easy access to many quality restaurant options, shopping, subway, farmers market, raw and organic food options. I would love to stay there again on future visits. Thank you so much for having me Perri and helping make my visit all the more wonderful.
Perri initially communicated clearly, but did not keep track of any of the information that I provided her, i.e., precise arrival & departure times. The caretaker did not respond to my phone messages when I landed, so I called Perri. She said to try texting him since he was at work -- still no response. I ended up going to my daughter’s place and waited over two hours until he sent someone with the keys.
I never heard from anybody re: check-out until I landed back in San Francisco.
The apartment is as described. It was comfortable; the kitchen was well-stocked with basics.
One major down-side for anyone who wished to sleep past 8 AM (say, someone from a different time-zone): the pianist next door practiced scales for hours each morning except Sunday.
Everything was perfect during our stay in NYC also thanks to Perri's apartment! We found there everything we needed, it is well located ( few minutes from the subway entrance (we could reach every point of manhattan easily) in a really nice area! we hope to have the chance to come again!
Second time staying there, everything perfect! Amazing location and charming village!
I loved staying in Perri's place. The location was definitely ideal and I definitely felt like a local, which I love. There is so much to do in the area, you can walk anywhere and the subway is a short walk away. I spent every morning at the coffee shop across the street. The apartment was comfortable and Perri was very responsive, which was great. My only complaint would be the door to the apartment. The lock was super difficult for me to work, my boyfriend didn't have too much trouble...I guess I didn't have the magical touch, but it wasn't an easy lock. But otherwise a great stay!
Very easy and nice to communicate with Perri. Flat clean when I came back. All good.
Good experience...would invite her back any time.
Fantastic guest !
Perri our new best friend. So witty and charming a delight to get to know. We look forward to seeing her again and perhaps trading in the future
Perri was great to host. She was here for a conference and spent little time in the apartment. But, she is a startup queen -- if you are hosting Perri make sure to solicit her feedback on your entrepreneurial venture.
Response from Perri:
You rock Aksh. So great to meet you. Keep in touch!
Perri is great. Very engaging friendly guest to have met/
Perri is a great guest and is welcome back anytime. She is thoughtful and considerate and engages just the right amount with other guests, etc.
I was fortunate to sublet Perri's apartment for a couple weeks last fall. Her apartment is located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. It is conveniently located that you can jump in a cab and be in Soho or the Meat Packing District in minutes. The apartment itself was quaint and quiet. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Perri's and would recommend to anyone who is staying in town.
Perri and I have been friends for about three years. Perri is uber intelligent, warm, caring and a very talented hardworking entrepreneur. Great fun to be around and wonderfully sweet.
