I've been living in NYC for 13 years. I worked in fashion for several years and now I work full time in advertising.
JoLynn was very helpful and flexible even when I needed to shift a day on either side of our visit. Her instructions were very thorough and I felt secure that we had several contacts locally should we need anything.
The house is very spacious and open...very charmingly decorated. The beds were very comfortable. It was chilly when we were there so we can attest to the fact that the heat works well. We would love to come back at a time when we could better enjoy the property and pool. This is a very "cool" house...our younger cousins who were staying elsewhere said they had "House-envy".
The apartment is at a great location and the neighborhood is fantastic. It is a walk up and we had some problems with a leaking sink, but it was fixed pretty soon. On a Sunday! So thank you for that!
The bedrooms are great and we recommend this place.
Staying at Jo's house was one of the best experiences I have had with Airbnb! She was an amazing host with beautiful taste. She made everything easy and was responsive.
I cant wait to stay at her house again :)
The apartment was in a great location and exactly as pictured. It was plenty roomy for three women to share. The neighbors were quiet although the area is busy and the radiators loud at night so recommend ear plugs. We were disappointed that the coffee maker was broken and the pans too rusty to feel comfortable using to heat water. This is a no frills accommodation and the first time in my history of holiday rentals that I needed to make arrangements for laundering the bedding and towels. It is usually included in the cleaning fee. Bright and sunny and overall a good place to stay while visiting Manhattan.
The apartment was great, cosy and exactly as shown in the photos.
The neighbourhood is great with lots of bars, restaurants and museums.
The subway is really close for quick access uptown or to Brooklyn.
Jo was very communicative and the whole process for checking in and out was easy.
Overall a big thumbs up!
The house was fantastic! Clean and very nicely decorated. You truly feel like you've escaped when you're there.
Loved that it was close to downtown and all the vineyards that we wanted to check out during our girls getaway.
JoLynn was very responsive from the start which made the whole experience amazing from the get go.
Despite not meeting her in person, Joanna was very quick to respond to messages and allowed us early check-in/late check-out as our flight schedules weren't ideal. The flat itself was wonderful, though the walk up was a good workout. A good size for our party of three.
Jo was so extremely accommodating, from start to finish, and we can't thank her enough. Myself and a group of colleagues held a low-key photo shoot in her home and it was perfect. The sunny sunroom and converted garage we're great spots to capture cozy get togethers, much less host one! The kitchen was a bit simple, but did the trick. Overall, the house is cozy with ample natural light, and nicely secluded. Thanks, Jo, for your hospitality and friendliness!
The location was fantastic, and I am very appreciative that JoLynn could handle our last minute request. She was pleasant, communicative and a caring host.
A comfortable apartment in a great location. Walking distance to many great areas to explore with more restaurants of any cuisine just a block or two away. Jo was great to chat to and helped us throughout our stay when we asked. My tip is to check out Vanessa's Kitchen which is only a couple of blocks away for the best (and cheapest) dumplings I've had so far.
Wonderful guests, very sweet and communicative. They were clean and tidy and a pleasure to have hosted in my home. I would definitely host them again anytime!
Thanks for coming. You are great person!
Joanna is the example of a responsable, trustworthy woman. She has impeccable taste and her appartment is wonderfully inviting, well appointed and comfortable. I stayed there many times and it is the perfect NYC pad. You are in great hands
