NYC Getaway...what a blast!
Just recently stayed at this location for 5 days. Communication with the owner was very easy and quick, which made me feel very secure! The house had an interesting layout but there was plenty of room for all of us there. There were some minor differences from what the pictures show, I'm sure the backyard area is more done up during the summer months, but the carpet shown in the basement was laid in the backyard and beyond that was an old rusty box spring and to the right a rusty old stove. Not the prettiest thing to look at, that an the random table cloth stapled to the wall in the room across the kitchen. The toilet had a problem with the plug being broken so we had to fix it each time we flushed. The coffee pot would turn on but would never brew, so just a heads up on that! But really those are the only things i'd had to say 'negatively' about the home, overall it really was great, and I enjoyed myself there. In my opinion it's in a good area with easy access to the subway station. I would stay here again!
A hint to future guests come days for street cleaning. After driving around for 40 minutes one morning looking for a spot on the other side of the streets, I saw how everyone started to double park other cars. I was shocked! So I Googled it on my phone and apparently, authorities turn their noses to it only during the street cleaning hours. I left my phone # on my dash board in case the person I double parked had to move. But it made things so much easier!
