My daughter and I stayed in Kakuna's apt for 3 nights and would (and hopefully will) return for a longer stay.
Everything was just right. The apt. is clean and spacious. The bathroom was big and the water pressure good. I was pleased to know that Kakuna and her family also live in the building because I knew that meant the premisis would be well cared for.
From the start, we felt like we were in good hands. Kakuna responded quickly to my inquiries and send a lot of well organized material - everything we needed to know for our stay like the wifi passwords, the recycling schedule- and a list of supermarkets, information on how to get to the apt from each airport etc. In addition, she have us some great restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood. We felt right at home and well taken care of.
We were surprised and delighted to learn that Kakuna was even bringing us breakfast supplies - eggs, milk, bread, cereal, coffee, tea, cottage cheese etc. We hardly needed at get groceries at all.
We felt very comfortable in the neighborhood as well. Although it may appear far from downtown Manhattan on a map, the express train stops nearby and it's just a short ride.
The beds are both comfortable and, best of all, it was quiet at night! No sirens, trucks, people shouting. You could hear the fridge humming, it was so peaceful.
Thanks so much for everything, Kakuna!!!
