We both have big hearts and open minds, and if you're the same, we'd love to meet you.
If you'd like to book with us, please tell us a little bit about yourself and why you're coming to our great city.
Janine & David were amazing hosts. Although we didn't have the opportunity to meet them, we felt very well taken care of throughout the entire check-in/check-out process and during our stay. They kept an open line of communication with us the entire time and went above and beyond their responsibilities as hosts. Janine offered great suggestions of places to eat around the area (which we were very appreciative of after a long flight), and they provided us with very thorough instructions on how to get to their place via public transportation and taxi.
Their apartment is exactly as pictured: what you see is what you get. It is very homey & clean, and we loved coming "home" to their apartment every night. The bed was extremely comfortable (especially the sheets & pillows). The water pressure & temperature of the shower is great (super important!). The apartment is in a very convenient location with great restaurants & bars within walking distance. It was also a short walk to the subway lines that would pretty much get you anywhere you want to go. As 2 girls in the city, we felt extremely safe walking home from the subway station in the wee hours of the night (no sketchy vibes here). My friend & I could not have asked for a better first experience with Airbnb! Thanks for making it a great stay, Janine & David!
We stayed at this apartment for 8 days. Janine was in touch via email frequently on the lead-up to our trip and was really helpful answering all our questions. The apartment is located in a great area, just off the main road which means it is relatively quiet but with everything you need right on your doorstep. Comfy couch, huge TV with cable, comfy bed. This apartment has everything you need for a great stay. The only gripe we had was the noise of the heating pipes coming on in the night, but after a couple of days we worked out that it is better to turn off the bedroom radiator at night as it is pretty warm regardless. Great find, helpful host, what more could you need? Much better than a hotel!
We had the opportunity to stay in Janine's flat for 9 nights whilst Janine was out of town, and had an absolutely fabulous time. The flat is very comfortable, and we immediately felt at home. It was a great size for the two of us, and we really enjoyd feeling like NY locals. The flat is right in the middle of the East Village, with loads of great restaraunts (try DIrt Candy) on the door step. Astor Place underground station was a couple of minutes away, and made getting around NY super easy. Janine was very helpful, and left us lots of information. Can't wait for our next trip to NY and hopefully Janine's flat.
Janine was great. Helpful and responsive. Their place is a delightful little apartment that matches the photos and is located in a great neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this to friends visiting New York.
We enjoyed staying at Janine and David's. The location was super convenient, very close to subway stops and tons of great restaurants and bars. The apartment was comfortable and just as advertised. Janine left us lots of directions and recommendations which were very helpful. Our stay gave us a taste of true New York living, something a hotel just can't offer.
Janine is friendly and very helpful. The location of the apartment is ideal. The room itself is cute and quiet with a comfortable queen bed. This is not a guest room, it's Janine's bedroom that she vacates during your stay. For us Janine was present during our stay, sleeping on the couch-bed in the common room. Janine has a small dog that was super cute and stayed out of the bedroom. I would definitely stay here again.
Myself and my boyfriend stayed at Janine and David's over New Year. They were away for the exact dates, so we had the place to ourselves! The place is exactly how it looks in pictures. So cosy and comfortable, and the location is ideal! We were more than happy with our experience. This was my first time using airbnb, and David and Janine are exactly what all hosts should be like. They were so helpful and determined to make our stay perfect. They even left us a bottle of champers in the fridge for New Year! They are also two extremely friendly and interesting people, that made us feel it would have been good to share more time with them. I would more than recommend David and Janine as hosts for anyone visiting New York. Perfect!
David and Janine are lovely, warm people to stay with. Very accommodating and are always helpful. The frosting on the cake is that they sometimes have an adorable little dachshund Barry, who was also just great!
Janine and David were lovely hosts…and their little hot dog called Barry. Their effort was greatly appreciated and we would recommend them to anybody and encourage anybody to stay with this warm, friendly and engaging couple.
This is what Airbnb is all about. Janine and Dave are awesome hosts. They go out of their way to provide inside tips and show what New York is really like. The place is conveniently located and very cosy. Can recommend this place without hesitation!
Very nice people, had awesome time. Quiet and clean guests, very helpful in the house.
Hosting Janine and David was a real pleaure! Just wonderful guests! Well travelled, easy going and fun to have around. Would love to host them again and again!
Good communication, reliable, RECOMMENDED
We so enjoyed hosting Janine! The perfect guest: warm, communicative, tidy and thoughtful. It was really nice getting to know her, chatting over breakfast and watching Downton Abbey together. Having Janine and her delightful friend Sarah spend their weekend writing retreat at our home was a relaxed pleasure and we're hoping Janine will visit us again.
Wonderful guest. Neat, clean, easygoing. A true pleasure to host.
Janine & Dave's apartment is filled with warmth & welcome, especially on those cold New York winter nights! The room is separate from theirs by a great distance, so it gives you your own privacy & there is plenty of room for 2 to enjoy a night in, reading from their great selection of books or just relaxing after a long day of touring the great metropolis. When staying here you will find they are around to help when lost or trying to figure out what to do in the city- after all Janine has experience in traveling & travel writing... & they both are guru's of the city- especially the East Village. You are surrounded by many great attractions (theatres, museums, parks & bars). You'll find your stay to be more comforting than a hotel... & is stress free. Thank You Janine & Dave for the wonderful place to stay!
