Recent New York City reviews
Great location, wonderful host, would stay again
"I decided to rent something off the beaten path for my NYC marathon. Why stay midtown, when this place was half the price? Got up early, hopped on the subway (half block from rental) and took the 1 right into Staten Island Ferry. The best thing about this place was the location though, really could not have been better. We only used the subway for a few midtown tourist locations (Guggenheim), otherwise, we walked everywhere (China Town, Soho, Meatpacking District, East Village, Chelsea, Highline Park). Marina was awesome, very accommodating and responsive throughout the entire process. The place was clean and neat. The bathroom situation was a little odd, but honestly, I really did not mind at all. Having a kitchen and lots of great shops nearby in the heart of downtown, totally made up for that small inconvenience. I would stay again in a heartbeat!"

"My family (3 adults, 1 teen and a dog) had a wonderful time at Robin’s place. The apartment is roomy and well provisioned, especially the kitchen, for a short or extended stay. The location is a brief and safe walk to the ferry terminal- literally minutes and then aboard the free ferry that runs all night to downtown Manhattan- it really couldn’t be easier. Cafés and a farmers market are close by. If you want some green space there is the historic Alice Austin House and the Chinese scholar’s and botanical gardens at Snug Harbor. It makes for a great home base for activities on Staten Island and Manhattan.
Robin is a great help- there when you need help, but very conscientious of your privacy. She provided great communication leading up to our stay and was an enormous help while we shared her home. I cannot recommend Robin’s Nest highly enough- you’ll be close to all that is great about NYC, but still have the creature comforts of home."

"I really don't have much to add to the other reviews that have already been posted. I would agree with those 5 star reviews 100%. Having lived in NYC for 5 years I can definitely say that this was a top tier apartment in a top tier location. The pictures are 100% accurate, but really do not properly communicate just how much space this apartment offers. The bedrooms are a great side, but the studio space in the back of the apartment is really big and spacious. The living room, dining room, kitchen area is also very spacious and feels even more so by the high ceilings throughout the apartment.
Christine was very helpful in giving a few recommendations of restaurants in the neighborhood and in getting us settled into the apartment. We ate at the Burger Joint down the street, and at Otto where I ordered the best ravioli I have ever had.
All in all, I believe that this apartment offers an extremely good value in NYC if you need more than 1 bedroom. Even if you don't need more than 1 bedroom it would still be a great place to stay because of its location and the high quality of the apartment. I look forward to the next trip where we can rent the apartment again!"

"This was our second rental of Peter's apartment and we have been delighted each time. While we have also stayed in the East Village many times, UWS is a great area. Lots of upscale bars and restaurants as well as plenty with local flair. (And they just opened a branch of the Meatball Shop a block and a half north! Mmmmm!!) You wouldn't even have to ride in a taxi or walk far and you could be fully entertained for many days in a NYC kind of way without leaving the UWS. But this place provides access to the entire city thru cab or Uber, and the subway is one block away. We leave about 25-30 minutes before shows start in midtown and arrive with plenty of time before curtain. This apartment is stocked with all the hardware you need for eat and drink. Blender, microwave, etc. Beds are very comfortable, as are the soft towels. Bathroom is a little tight, but it is NYC. Kitchen is huge and the living room a nice place to sit if you wish to catch up on a little tv with a beverage between outings. You do hear sound of the city, well, because you are in a city. But it really takes us one day and we're adjusted. Peter is a pleasure to work with....VERY accommodating! His communication is also superb. Looking forward to our next visit!"
