We are Professional Artists/Designers and Professors.
Cici is the coolest host, she knows well New York and especially East Village, and her bedroom is perfect for 1 or 2 guests. I highly recommend this one :)
We stayed here for 3 weeks during Xmas and NYE and definitely recommend this apartment, especially if you're a young traveller. The apartments is clean, bright and spacious great for two. It's probably the best location if you are visiting NYC. The Q and R station is 1min walk away which you can catch to go uptown e.g. Times Square and is only a few stops a way (around 5-10min).
There are plenty of restaurants/bars/cafes right outside, as well as an ATM near the front door. Excellent for shopping, 10 min walk to Soho where you can find ALL the shops and Bloomingdale is just further down.
We would definitely stay here again if we do visit nyc.
Sweet, modest place; very communicative, thoughtful and flexible hosts -- many many thanks!!
This is a beautiful, bucolic house looking out into a woodland. We love the way Michael's got it decorated, with mid-century pieces and quirky framed artwork. The space is super clean, the shower pressure spectacular, the kitchen stocked with plenty of tea & breakfast goodies, and if you're lucky to get it during a lull, you get the entire floor to yourself. Highly recommended--thanks for a great stay!
This was our first AirBNB experience, and it was a great one!
Michael was a great host! He recommended numerous places to eat and grab a few drinks around Hudson, NY. His house was lovely! Very simplistic and stylish with custom made furniture and artwork. He also provided us with a lovely loaf of ciabatta bread! We used the fireplace both nights and played some chill-out music through the stereo for a nice relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again!!
We had a very pleasant 3-night stay in Cici's apartment. Cici was a great host and helped give us city exploration recommendations. The apartment was clean, quiet, and spacious and had great New York character. The location is good - there are tons of restaurants nearby and it's easy walking distance to subway and NYU campus. The area is very active - the street is bustling with young people and college students until fairly late at night (though you won't hear them from the apt since the bedroom is in the interior room anyway). We would definitely recommend staying here if you get a chance
A great place to stay as a couple or in a big group like we did for a recent wedding installation. Clean, roomy and comfortable with extremely nice and generous hosts.
The cat in the downstairs studio is a pleasure and is also a gracious host. All around a wonderful experience! Thank you Cici & Michael for making your entire home available to us.
Staying at Michael's place was a real treat. We rented two rooms and had access to a whole floor with a nice kitchen, awesome living room and fireplace and comfortable bedrooms. The deck and garden were also a beautiful addition. Michael even lets you cook with the vegetables from his garden. It was a great getaway and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thanks!!!
We had a lovely and relaxing time at Michale's house. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the area.
The house is located about 15 min drive from downtown Hudson. Michael gave us great restaurant recommendations and we enjoyed an evening on the town before heading back.
Michael was very welcoming and easy to reach. The weekend was simply great!
THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO STAY IN HUDSON, NY. We spent one day with great friends at this lovely ranch after going to Dia:Beacon. Michael was extremely accommodating and congenial, gave us plenty of privacy, and had everything ready for us: the home was very clean and to further show his hospitality, he kindly provided us with baguettes, delicious butter and eggs for the morning (a classy way to receive guests, I thought). The decor is stunning, and the home very cozy. Everything was delivered with great care and style. We had 2 bedrooms upstairs, and benefited from the fully equipped kitchen. The area is very quiet, and the porch is wonderful (along with a wonderful vegetable garden!). Staying at this home was certainly a highlight to our trip, thank you Michael & Cici!
Cici and Michael are just flat-out lovely people. I have known them for years and I've spent many happy hours in their East Village apartment. They have charm and skills and power tools and they have saved me from disaster more than once. I'd trust them with anything.
