The apartment was bigger and nicer than I expected. It was clean and tidy with comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and towels, everything that was needed. The air conditioning kept us cool during a heat spell, the WIFI was fast and the location was very convenient. A plus was the large back yard where we relaxed with cocktails. Marea gave us lots of neighborhood suggestions that we were happy with. Some were Penelope's on the corner for their special omelets. Bistango was inexpensive with a cozy vibe, and Marcony for homemade pasta. One night it rained so we ordered in with free delivery from La Parisian. We shopped at Dover Market that was on the corner. We definitely will be back and recommend the apartment to our friends and family.
The apartment: we were a group of 7 adults so sometimes the living room or the shower bathroom were "crowded", but we were well aware of that before booking so it was perfectly fine. There are extra beds for kids if needed.
The apartment was clean and very comfortable with good AC.
The garden: awesome! that's were we spent almost all of our time when we were there. I just hope we were not too loud in the evenings.
Location: great! In a cute quiet street with beautiful houses, close to public transportation, in the middle of Manhattan.
The host: Marea is extraordinary. She welcomed us with snacks and a bottle of wine, explained to us the neighborhood and gave us good advices on what to visit.
I'm sorry we didn't have enough time to sit and chat with her the second time (we had a scheduled top of the rock visit).
I'll be back next time in NY!
Stayed here with my 18 year old and her 2 friends for her birthday present, and I couldn't have asked for more. The apartment was very well situated, centrally located to visit all the attractions and some great restaurants close by. Having spent every day walking miles, as the girls wanted to walk everywhere, it was a luxury coming back to an apartment that provided everything we needed including the most comfortable beds and no noise from the outside world. You wouldn't believe you were in the middle of NY city even when you sat out in the garden that was just for the apartment, it was great. The owner, Marea, was amazing too, so hospitable and took the time to go through essential information and her comprehensive folder she has created with lots of information in. Would definitely recommend this place as a home away from home.
