I am an easy going guy originally from Southern California. I enjoy golf, wakeboarding, snowboarding, the beach, and everything about New York City...but now I live in Hermosa Beach and work for an awesome winery.

The only good thing was the location.
The host was not as responsive even prior to the trip, despite the feedback from other guests. I told him that the air circulation and air conditioning wasn't great, and he did not even bother to follow up. He also said he will clear some of his stuff within the first few days which he didn't. His roommate was really dirty, and the kitchen/living room area and bathroom was not clean. oh, and the roommate also smokes every night he's there, which really stinks up the whole place. towards the end, john said he will get a cleaner in, which he didn't.
and i found out the lease on the apartment ended, which explains his ignorant attitude as he will not need to advertise the place for the future, which overall reflects a lack of integrity in the host. .
PROS: Excellent location close to many of the sights in Manhattan and within easy reach of the subway. The living room was spacious and pleasant.
CONS: The apartment itself was well below expectations. It hadn't been cleaned properly before we arrived. Two of the downstairs bedrooms were windowless and damp. Ants and mice were in the apartment (the "Exterminator" called while we were there). Leading up to our arrival date, our host was unreachable. He finally sent a message 4 hours before our arrival to say he was no longer managing this apartment! The instructions for entering the apartment (key in lock box) were no longer correct.
OVERALL: If all you want is a good location then this is fine, but I would not recommend it on any other basis.
Abbiamo passato una bella settimana a NY l'appartamento era in ordine e pulito. L'appartamento è vicino alla quinta strada comodissimo per muoversi a piedi ovunque.
The location works well for a Manhattan visit and John is easy to deal with, but the apartment is much older than it looks in the photo and is fairly small. (You see most of it in the photo.) It provided what my family needed, which was a place to sleep, and that's all it was. The neighborhood is quiet and transportation is nearby, which were both a plus for us. As an experience, using Airbnb is like crashing at a friend's apartment while in college, but paying for it.
Nice apartment in a good location. Big enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. John was a good host - we enjoyed our stay in New York.
We had a great time in New York and John's apartment was in the perfect location. Very clean and a reasonable size for New York it was an Oasis of refuge from the hustle and heat of NYC in summer.
Neighborhood is great. The walkup is 2/F in a rather old building. The space inside is fine. plenty of sleeping space in the living room. the bedroom is small and the bed is not the best.
Overall, it is ok.
Experienced Airbnber. Nice guest. Good communicator. No issues.
Wow! Johns Dad left my place perfectly clean! He didn't ask any questions throughout the stay and was the ideal guest. Highly recommend John and his family.
John and the other guests were great! Communicated well prior to the stay, left the place clean and were a pleasure.
We thoroughly enjoyed having John, his family and friends stay on-board Rhapsody. All were easy going and had an great time in Charleston as well. Look forward to seeing them again soon.
Jhon was great! , respectful, chill, and easy going. Our interaction was always pleasant and I definitely would have him as a guest in my unit again! Thanks Jhon
I found out about John's room rental through vast research. i was incredibly satisfied with my experience. Perfect location and perfect accommodations.
I will definitely contact John again, next time I'm in town!
John is one of those wonderful, open, trusting people who opens his house to friends and airbnb-ers are very soon treats them like friends, too. He's well traveled, has a wide range of friends around the globe and embraces new people and their experiences. John is a seriously good guy. His apartment is in a nice block, in a great location. The bed I stayed on was comfortable, fast internet, good ac, low noise - clean bathroom. It was all round a great experience.
