Calm, sane, world class, living in NYC for 20 years.
What a funky and comfortable apartment in a lovely location! Apartment had absolutely everything we needed with yummy restaurants and great shopping nearby in Chelsea. We arrived in NYC on Thanksgiving and our host had even made reservations for us at a great place, Tipsy Parsons (yum!) to take the worry out of finding somewhere ourselves. Communication was easy and reliable, with our host checking in via email and texts to ensure everything was going ok. Couldn't have been happier with our choice! Thanks Beco!
I'm moving to NY and until I find an apartment, I rented B's apartment. His apartment is the exact apartment I would like to find for myself. It's a true NY apartment, and the interior decoration is so cool that you want to take everything home with you. In NY you rarely want to stay home, there's so much going on, but here you're real happy when you arrive home! It's also very quiet, and very large for a 1 bedroom. Location is good too. Thank you B!
The apartment is perfectly located on a quiet street but close to the subway, shops, attractions, restaurants and bars. Beco gave us all the details and directions we needed to find the apartment and greeted us on arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.
Firstly, the location is great. It's a quiet section in the middle of busy Chelsea life. I wasn't disturbed by outside noise at all. Just a short walk away to the clubs and for supplies there's a Whole Foods on the corner.
The apartment was much larger than I expected and a far better alternative to some studios on offer for around the same price. This is not a spartan bed-on-th-floor minimalist NY rental. This is someone's home, and has a remarkable collection of paraphernalia and ephemera that has been collected over the years.
B is the perfect host. The key transfer was simple, the rules of the apartment are simple as well. This is my home, treat it as yours. B took the time to point out anything that I needed to know. He's a friendly, interesting guy... we had some common interests as well, so that made for a good rapport and trust... which is what Airbnb is all about, right? This was my first use of the system and it was very positive.
If you are thinking of staying here, I think the only thing you need to know is that it is an older New York walk-up, and although not a problem for me (even with a case etc.) if you have difficulty with stairs you need to be aware of this.
Charming apartment. Great location. Extremely friendly and serviceminded host. We would definitely recomend it!
My experience with Rob could not have gone more smoothly. The apartment was spacious and well laid out. The bedroom, living room and dining room were all separated by walls and/or doors, which gave us a strong sense of privacy.
Building was quiet, and very, very convenient.
Will definitely return to this apartment.
Rob was a lovely host and made sure we felt at home. The apartment is in an amazing location but is still very quiet at night, making it the ideal base for exploring New York. I loved the decor as well - very creative and funky. We'd definitely stay again.
Beco was a fantastic host, and his railroad apartment in Chelsea was just perfect. Everything is close by - midtown is just a few blocks north, Union Square is just a few blocks east and if you head south you bump into the the meatpacking district, etc. Also, it's a 10-minute walk to the High Line, which was great. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to NYC!
Perfect apartment in perfect location!
Our stay at Robert's was amazing! He was so easy to communicate with and so easy going about everything. He was also very accommodating with regards to getting keys to us.
When we arrived at his apartment were soooo pleasantly surprised of how comfortable and welcoming the apartment is (and much larger than expected). It was clean and well stocked with fresh linens.
Whole Foods is right across the street! The location for us was perfect, close to subway stops and a quick walk to the West Village,and in the middle of Chelsea (if you are not familiar with NYC, a very cool district). My family of couldn't wait to return to our temporary home at the end of the day. It was a great place for our week in New York and we highly recommend this apartment.
B D is a lovely guest I recommend to all airbnb hosts!
hi Rob, thanks for being our guest. Glad to hear that you had a great time in Amsterdam. If you ever visit Amsterdam again let us know. You are more then welcome, greetings, Robert & Nat
