  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 friends stayed in John's Chelsea apartment for 5 nights. This apartment was perfect for us , so close to all the attractions that we were wanting to visit, we were able to walk everywhere and infact walked 65 km total the time we were there. So many quaint restaurants and local shops. The apartment itself had everything we needed and John was so sweet and kind to leave us an assortment of wine and snacks. The gourmet cupcakes were amazing. I would definetley stay there again and would also recommend this place. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, in a unique area of NYC. We were aware of the 4 flights of stairs so that was no surprise. John waited for us to arrive to go over everything and accomodated our late check out. Thanks so much John.

This is my second stay at John’s apartment (this time with my family) - and we hope to return soon! John is a kind and very generous host. We really appreciated all the extra touches (delicious welcome cupcakes, drinks, cookies and snacks). The apartment is exactly as described, very comfortable and a home away from home with everything we needed. We also really enjoyed John’s art and music collection. The location can’t be beaten - around the corner from the ACE subway (easy access to the airports and everywhere), close to the wonderful High Line and Chelsea Markets (great food, bars and shopping) and the Whitney Museum, and so many great neighbourhoods are within easy walking distance. John was in touch with us during our stay to check we had everything we needed. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

John could not have been more helpful or nice during out stay. The apartment is charming, well laid out, and easy to get to. A beautiful view of the empire state building from the bedroom. John was generous with food items as well.

I would recommend

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at John's apartment. It was so nice to be in a neighborhood away from the more touristy areas of Manhattan. The space was bright and the view of the Empire State Building from the bedroom was quite magical.

This apartment is lovely and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days in early December. The stairs were a trek but we only did them a couple times a day. We needed assistance with our luggage; however, this was due to our age and heavier suitcases for winter weather. The apartment was spacious and very well equipped. One of us used the bedroom and one used the living room to sleep in and it worked out well. The sofa bed was comfortable and easy to set up.

The owner is gracious and responds quickly when contacted. Beware of the snack tray - it is filled with delicious treats!! Our stay was very enjoyable and we highly recommend the apartment.

Live like a local in Chelsea!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine lying in a comfy bed looking out the window to a spectacular view of Empire State Building, lit up in all its glory of coloured lights that changed each night!

The room is large and old style.

Add in a spacious unit, longe and dining room and compact kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The sofa is a very comfortable pull out bed if needed.

The furniture is Art Deco and there are windows galore to let in natural light.

Apple TV and local stations and a great selection of cds to play.

The bathroom is functional, water hot and the bathtub easy to get in and out.

This apartment is decked out to be lived in!

There is a subway just around the corner and heaps of shops and Chelsea Markets.

Now meet John the owner. He is there to welcome us, spends lots of time to go through the entire apartment making us feel like this is our abode to enjoy for our stay. The fridge is stocked with beer and wine, and a hamper with lots of snacks!thankyou John!

While here he emails every few days to make sure all is well.

We loved exploring the area, thoroughly recommend Mexeque, $5 margaritas 4-7pm, Italia pizza just across the road.

Will definitely be back again.

Only negative was the four flights of stairs up that might not suit everyone but was not an issue for us!
