We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kimball's apartment. The location was superb (just a block away from Central Park & a couple of different subway stations) and the apartment was spacious. It wasn't as clean as we would have liked, but it worked just fine. We give the apartment itself 3 stars, plus one for the location.

Kimball (email hidden)e apartment was exactly what was advertised, in a wonderful location, a vibrant neighborhood right next to Central Park - couldn't be better. Getting the key and checking in was seamless. The futon downstairs was very comfortable (the loft was a little too much for a couple of old folks!) and the air conditioning was nice and cold when we needed it. Compact, full kitchen if you are into cooking, but we ate out (especially liked Lenny's for breakfast and Uno Chicago (hope that's the name, it's close!) and the Firehouse for dinner.)
We can't thank Kimball enough for sharing his apartment with us - we had a simply wonderful four-day experience!
Nice location and good apartment.
Had a great stay at Kimball's apartment- it's a really beautiful space in a great neighbourhood and close to trains to get anywhere else in the city. Had a scary few hours when we first arrived and realised we couldn't get into the apartment and couldn't get in touch with Kimball, but it worked out in the end and the rest of the stay was perfect. Thanks for having us.
Ideally located, this studio easily fulfilled our needs. However, the mattress in the loft left much to be desired and the closets and kitchen cabinets were pretty much in chaos with little or no room or place for unpacking. We lived out of our suitcases for 11 days. That said, the studio was reasonably clean, efficient, easily managed and surrounded by lots of interesting shops and restaurants that easily filled our requirements. We recommend this probably best for two persons and suggest that the owner take some time to prepare the apartment for visitors by clearing off some of his personal effects from desk tops, kitchen counters, etc. All went well despite these inconveniences - we brought our own coffee maker - and would certainly consider rebooking.
L'appartement est très sympa (spacieux et bien équipé) et très bien situé. Kimball nous avait laissé les clés à disposition dans une boutique à côté. Bien que nous ne l'ayons pas rencontré il a toujours répondu très rapidement à nos mails.
Le lit en mezzanine est adapté aux plus jeunes, l'accès est peut être un peu plus compliqué pour les autres...
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
My daughter and I had a great stay! I am a middle aged mom with a bit of a bad hip. The two flights of stairs to the apartment weren't too bad and the futon was very comfortable. My daughter slept up in the loft and was very comfortable. There are groceries etc nearby and the key pick up was easy. We really enjoyed our New York trip. The apartment is also close to "both" of the subway lines which means getting down to the 9 11 memorial via subway was easy. Cabs to a play were about $12. We were lucky to get good weather and take walks in nearby Central Park. We so enjoyed our stay.
We had a great stay in NYC in Kimball's apartment. The location for us was perfect because we were in town to go to the opera and concerts. Taxi to Lincoln Center cost about $7.50 and it is an enjoyable 20-block walk back after opera when the sidewalks weren't busy at night allowing one to 'come down to earth' after listening to great music.
Getting the keys was easier and faster than checking in a hotel, and communicating with Kimball worked splendidly.
Kimball was a great guest. The apartment was exactly as I left it. I would recommend him to anyone.
Kimball and I have known each other for ten years (we went to school together). He is a wonderful friend -- very kind, considerate, and reliable. His apartment is fantastic! It's very clean and well located, and his thoughtful personality shines through in all of the details, from the artwork to the dishes (from Tunisia!). Kimball has stayed with me several times, and he has always been a clean, considerate guest. I would recommend him, either as host or guest, to anyone.
