We had a fantastic stay! The apartment was spotless, well-maintained and offered a nice mix of comfort and efficiency. The pictures on the website are accurate and give a good sense of the artistic feel of the space.
We appreciated Jessica and Mark's thoughtful touches~ a variety of tea, coffee, toiletries, a fabulous kitchen with everything we needed to prepare home-made meals, small appliances that you rarely find in bare-bones apartments/ hotels, and not one but TWO umbrellas (priceless!).
The owners were also very easy to work with. They were communicative and responsive to our emails, made payment easy, arranged for immediate and easy access to the apartment upon our evening arrival, and provided us with specifically-tailored restaurant suggestions.
The main living area of the apartment was surprisingly sunny and quiet for a city apartment. We didn't use the TV often but it was nice to have cable (and HBO!). We called the bedroom the "sleep chamber" because the bed was incredibly comfortable, the temperature was perfect, and the normal city apartment sounds-- specifically, the radiator (there was no traffic noise)-- actually acted as white noise at night. The bed was well-appointed, there were fun books to peruse, and lighting is stylish and modern.
This is a great home-base for a visit to the city~ the subway is 3 blocks away, there are many (many, many!) great restaurant and night-life options, it's close to Union Square (fun holiday and farmers' market) and Whole Foods is within walking distance. It was also nice to have an elevator in the apartment building... We had a wonderful stay!
