I've spent considerable time living and working abroad. I love New York and I'm happy to share tips.
Hi, I stayed in Luke's studio flat for 6 nights and there was no a single moment I regretted it. Luke is great. The place is fantastic. It is indeed very close to the centre and is clean and cozy. There was a slight situation with the WiFi router in the beginning but Luke called me and followed me through quite thorough instructions how to make it work - and after completing all the steps (just 3 simple steps) it worked fine. I haven't met Luke in person but by the stuff and books he had in his flat I understood he's a really nice, interesting and very methodical guy. There were some post-its around explaining how/what to do in order to make your stay comfortable. There was a guideline brochure concerning everything from clean towels to bicycle racks, lights to garbage bins.
would stay there again if it is available for my next trip to NYC.
Luke, thank you very much and I wish you all the best in this great city of New York.
Luke's place was simply lovely. Location is amazing - right next to the park and just two blocks or so from nearest subway. The apartment is indeed cozy and pimped out with gadgets, speakers, and fancy lighting in nearly every corner! The second-floor bed phenomenon was the highlight of my stay, the bed is incredibly comfortable and I loved the experience of having a cozy nook in the ceiling overlooking the place.
As a host Luke was extremely attentive to detail and is very understanding and flexible as a person. I had a pleasant time interacting with him. He also has great taste in music (put the iPod in the bathroom on shuffle and you'll see!)
All in all, a wonderful stay in this unique space.
We had a fabulous time staying in the loft. The loft was awesome to say the least. Location was very convenient and Luke was a warm and gracious host. Thank you for an unforgettable NY experience!
First off let me just say, Luke is an exceptional host. Very accommodating, always checked in to make sure I was okay, and very responsive when and if there was a question or concern. This apartment could not be more perfect and quaint. Extremely clean, cozy, and super quiet neighborhood. Loved everything about it. Would stay here, hands down, every time i come to NY, if i could. Thanks again Luke, you are a gem.
Great apartment, good location and excellent communication. Friendly and helpful host. Flexible check-in and check out.
Luke has a really nice and clean place very close to a metro station and super close from the Park. I can only but highly recommend his spot!
We enjoyed staying at this Upper West Side apartment very much; the location is great and the apartment is quite nice. It is very clean, attractively furnished, stylish, and comfortable. It is certainly "high tech," with a sophisticated entertainment system and iPod docks in several locations throughout the apartment. The bed and the living room couch are both comfortable, and the bathroom is relatively spacious with plenty of hot water. We ate breakfasts at the apartment, indulging in the nearby Le Pain Quotidien for delicious croissants and breads, and shopped for some dinner supplies at the wonderful Zabars. Barzini's is also a nice market and very close by. Getting to the #1, 2, and 3 subways is very convenient, and getting to the apartment by car is easy from the nearby West Side/Henry Hudson Hwy. Younger visitors, who may navigate the ladder to the loft area more gracefully than us in our 60's, may award 5 stars. The apartment is on the warm side, but there is a ceiling fan and a window that opens that help with that. We are sorry that we did not get a chance to meet Luke, but his friend Kym greeted us warmly and oriented us to the apartment. Luke had also left many helpful notes and the information we got from Luke when we first booked was accurate and highly informative. Luke is very responsive to any questions you might have. This was our first airbnb experience and we are very pleased that everything worked as planned.
Luke's place is amazing. A beautiful and clean loft, 5-7 min walk to subway and very close to all kinds of shops, restaurants etc. The location is ideal. Luke was polite, communicative and flexible with check-in and check-out hours. Everything went off without a hitch - overall, a great experience!
really enjoyed my stay at this loft - -a very cool and comfortable space with some great details in it, including the furnishings, art and, the audio system. luke was helpful, communicative, and check in and check out went without a hitch.
Luke is friendly and respectful with the apartment, but I must say that he was far from punctual with the time of entry and exit, making me wait up to 30 minutes at the main door....
