We absolutely loved this place. It was our first time using VRBO and I can't express how happy we were to go the non hotel route for our very first trip to NYC. And we'll probably do the same thing when we return. We've done a lot of traveling and this place made us feel at home. It was cozy, warm and comfortable to return to after a long day of sightseeing and walking. Personably I loved the neighborhood. It had lots of character and it close to subways which made it very convenient to get from A to Z. People were nice and helpful when asking about directions. Lots of restaurants to choose from as well, like Picante and Solace. It was safe and we felt safe.
I would recommend this place for people who want to be in the chaos of NYC but RETURN to a calm, quiet and nice place to stay at and feel like you were in your own living room. Only thing To consider is the bed is a full. My spouse is 6'2 (and I'm 5'1) and us sleeping on a full was tight but a small price to pay for such an awesome stay.
The owners are sweet and respond to your questions/concerns quickly... If there are any. We are gonna miss NYC. Thank you Philippe and Janine!
