Let me first say that we enjoyed our stay here at this apartment. Our time in NY was perfect. We actually spent very little time in the apartment, but when we were there, it was accommodating. It had the essentials necessary for an extended stay. The location is very good. Full grocery right around the corner. Great cafes and restaurants very close by. Bus service just a few blocks away and the subway even closer. Communication with both Pierce and Daniel is excellent. They will respond very quickly.
That being said, a few issues to consider. Overall, the apartment was clean, although when we got there, the bathroom could have had more attended to. A basic cleaning was done, I’m sure, but a better cleaning of the floors and shower was in order. We arrived quite late, so getting the cleaning crew through there at that time would have been a challenge. It wasn’t anything that we couldn’t handle, but a slight bother nonetheless. We did mention to Daniel what we had to do and he would have been more than happy to address the issue, which I appreciated. But by then, the deed was done.
If the owner needs to enter the apartment for any reason, it would be good to at least notify the renters beforehand. Even though we may have been out, it would have been good to know that he needed to get something from the apartment. Just as a courtesy.
Lastly, be sure to read all of the fine print on ALL documents before signing and sending them off. Be sure to know what you are signing and what to expect regarding deposit, rent payment (how it’s to be paid) and deposit return (how it’s to be returned). I noticed a couple of inconsistencies regarding the way the deposit was to be paid and the returning of the deposit (which, by the way, was received a week after the contracted time frame). It wasn’t a huge problem; I’m just saying to be aware of the options. This should hold true to any rental in any city.
All-in-all it was a pleasant and memorable experience.
