My daughter and I had a great stay! I am a middle aged mom with a bit of a bad hip. The two flights of stairs to the apartment weren't too bad and the futon was very comfortable. My daughter slept up in the loft and was very comfortable. There are groceries etc nearby and the key pick up was easy. We really enjoyed our New York trip. The apartment is also close to "both" of the subway lines which means getting down to the 9 11 memorial via subway was easy. Cabs to a play were about $12. We were lucky to get good weather and take walks in nearby Central Park. We so enjoyed our stay.
We had a great stay in NYC in Kimball's apartment. The location for us was perfect because we were in town to go to the opera and concerts. Taxi to Lincoln Center cost about $7.50 and it is an enjoyable 20-block walk back after opera when the sidewalks weren't busy at night allowing one to 'come down to earth' after listening to great music.
Getting the keys was easier and faster than checking in a hotel, and communicating with Kimball worked splendidly.
Great stay in a nice appartment!
Great location. Very close to subway station and Central Park. Couldn't ask for a better spot. Kimball was prompt with response and instructions. Had no issues with wifi as other reviews mentioned. Shower was a little hard to figure out even after reading instructions in the "house manual." Apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Highly reccomend! We will be back!
Great location - right by Central Park, near subway, the Natural History Museum, and local places to eat. The apartment has plenty of space and is comfortable. We felt lucky to be able to stay there while in NYC.
Excellent location, plenty comfortable and aesthetic large studio. Futon good for sleep!
We had a lovely warm stay here over Thanksgiving weekend. Everything was as described - although somehow we hadn't picked up on the fact that the mezzanine bed area isn't full height. Anyway - it didn't matter at all, just made the stay extra cosy. Very convenient for getting around town and a friendly neighborhood.
Place was great. Awesome location and perfect size for the two of us. One thing to mention is that the bed is up a ladder and the ceiling once you climb to the top is quite low--about 3.5 feet. Since we couldn't stand up and didn't want to crawl to the bed, we slept on the futon which was fine. Other than that, everything was great! Thanks so much for a great vacation rental!
Really good location and easy key pick up. Kimball is communicative and flexible. Apartment has a classic NY feel. Never heard a single neighbor. Easy walk to the subway and park. Thanks Kimball!
This appartement is great and very well located (near from Central Park, from the subway, from every thing you need...), perfect for a couple visiting New York.
The appartement is exactly like in the presentation pictures, very pleasant.
No problem in the organization, for key exchange etc... totally clear.
Only negative point: the bed sheets hadn't been changed before our arrival, even if clean sheets were at our disposal on the sofa.
Risposta di Kimball:
Thanks Sylvain! Please note: The sheets were indeed cleaned and changed...I'm afraid they made have been quite wrinkled...
Kimball was a great guest. The apartment was exactly as I left it. I would recommend him to anyone.
Kimball and I have known each other for ten years (we went to school together). He is a wonderful friend -- very kind, considerate, and reliable. His apartment is fantastic! It's very clean and well located, and his thoughtful personality shines through in all of the details, from the artwork to the dishes (from Tunisia!). Kimball has stayed with me several times, and he has always been a clean, considerate guest. I would recommend him, either as host or guest, to anyone.
