Not so relaxing

  • 3 of 5

It was missing certain things like a washing machine backyard tooo dark inside not enough light but overall peaceful and beautiful

Owner's Response: This is a beautiful fully furnished, well lit large studio apartment. There is plenty of lighting throughout the apartment. It does not have a washing machine, but there is a nearby laundromat (less than a 5 minute walk away from the apartment.) This apartment is in the front of the building, therefore it does not have access to the backyard. But it does have a well lit front yard where you can relax and enjoy the night or morning air. Our goal and mission is to make sure that our guest have a wonderful and enjoyable experience when they come to New York. We are very open and accommodating. Any feedback that helps us make your stay the best experience it can be, is always welcome and appreciated. Thank you John

Poor.

  • 1 of 5

The apartment in the photo was not the one we were given. Upon arrival we were told there was a mix up with another family. We were then told we would be moved into the apartment in the photo the next morning. This never happened. We were there for 5 days. On the third day John called and we were told that we could look at the other apartment and move if we wanted. It was never shown to us and we were not given the opportunity to change to the apartment in the photo.

The location was fine and quite. It was on third floor and the caretaker nicely helped us with our luggage.

The air conditioner thermostat did not work properly. The apartment was dated and not very clean. I would never stay here again or recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We do have more than one apartment available at this location. We did have two different guest arrive close to the same time and there was a mix-up with the check in with the two guests. We apologize for the mix-up. We have put a system in place to make sure that it doesn't happen again. But, please note that all of our apartments are very nice and well maintained. All of our air conditions are working great and keeps the apartments nice and cool. The apartment that this guest was mistakenly given, just like the apartment that she was suppose to stay in, gets great reviews. But we understand that you want what you paid for. I did make an attempt to make the correction, but did not get any answer when I went to the apartment and did not receive a return call. Our goal and mission is to make sure that our guest are more then happy with choosing us as their host and make sure that you have a wonderful experience while you're here. Again we apologize for the mix-up and please feel free to contact me whenever you come back to New York. We'll make sure that you have a wonderful stay at a great price. Thank you for your feedback. John

Nice, comfy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The 2 of us stayed 9 nights. Kitchen had everything we needed. Coffee shops, convenience stores/delis & restaurants close by. Nice neighborhood feel to the area. The bed & bedding were great-the sheets were really soft.

Quick trip to NY

  • 5 of 5

The studio was perfect for a quick trip to check out schools for our son. The place was clean and the access to train was perfect. Would definately recommend again!

Nice kitchen in run down apartment

  • 1 of 5

The owner was very helpful and accomodating. He helped us get a parking spot on the street the night we arrived.

Unfortunately the property requires a great deal of work to become suitable for rental:

1. The apartment entry door does not properly close.

2. An added air-conditioning unit is not properly mounted, and during the spring rains the noise will keep you awake at night.

3. When the rain stops you will still not be able to sleep because of the video games the neighbors play till late night.

4. The bathroom is the most run down piece of the apartment. Holes in the wall, wear and tear everywhere.

5. The kichen is very decent and well equiped.

The worst place we have EVER rented through VRBO/HomeAway. We felt like in a third world country, not in the Big Apple of USA.

Owner's Response: This apartment is one of our most requested and preferred rentals by our guest and returning guest. The apartment is just as you see in the pictures on the website. The entry door in a slam lock and is very easy to open and close. We are doing some renovation on the door, but the door works perfectly fine. Our window air condition is properly and securely installed. I have never had any complaints about the air conditioner. This is a family oriented neighborhood and building. The neighbors are always very friendly and helpful to our guest. Everyone is usually very respectful of each other, therefore usually keep any noise to a minimum. The building is usually very quiet and serene. The bathroom is as seen in the pictures. It's has a beautiful granite sink top, chrome fixtures, marble tiled walls and floor, a relaxing Jacuzzi tub/shower and is well maintained. Overall this is a beautiful studio apartment that is well maintained and is perfect for anyone coming to New York for business or for a relaxing vacation. Our goal and mission is to make sure that our guest have a wonderful experience while they're here. We are always striving to improve ourselves and make your stay even better. That's why we appreciate our guest's feedback and opinions.. Thank you
