"My husband and I had a fabulous stay in Maria's apartment. It is comfortable, cosy and in a safe, interesting neighbourhood. We just loved to hang out in the apartment to make our daily plans and then we would come home to a perfect retreat from the streets of New York.
Highly recommended for a couple or a couple with kids."

"This apartment is a great option for those who want to spend time in Lower Manhattan or Brooklyn. It is in the heart of the Lower East Side near the Wlliamsburg Bridge, with easy access to East Village, Chinatown, Little italy, Soho, etc etc. Twice we walked across the city to the West Village in under 30 minutes, casual strolling, passing through fascinating areas on the way. Very close to 2 subway lines also.
The apartment, as advertised, is large and clean and well furnished. Two TVs, excellent mattress, a hard-wired computer and 2 different WiFi networks. Clean is a big issue, as places in NYC are not always up to the standards of home, but this place is really clean! Awesome view to the west from the 18th floor - maybe all the way to Jersey?
As noted by others, the immediate surroundings are a bit grim - parking lots and other high-rise buildings, but at no time did we feel even remotely unsafe. It's a very user friendly area.
Ana, the landlady, is extremely helpful and co-operative. There was a little complexity surrounding our arrival time and she worked with us so we got the keys well in advance. One could not ask for a more accommodating owner; she made it all very easy. Even left us with a welcome basket of wine, beer and sundry junk foods.
The only qualification is that the cleaning fee ($100) is a bit high when compared to comparable listings in VRBO.
Overall, strongly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in the area."

"I had to fly in for work and decided to bring my wife and the kids with me since they were out of school for the summer. Upon arrival I felt as if we being treated like family coming into town for a special occasion. The place was very clean with fresh linens, towels, fast internet, playstation for the kids, coffee and wine. I've stayed at a few places in NYC and it's always a crap shoot. So I keep my expectations very moderate, but Mike goes the extra mile to communicate and make sure you are informed and welcomed. Neighborhood is amazing and I recommend Rubirosa in SoHo, if you want fantastic Italian, for truly out of this world dinner! It was a quick visit, but I plan on bringing the family back for a longer visit next year and I will be booking very far in advance to make sure we stay here again. When you find something you like, you stick with it! Thanks for the hospitality Mike."

"My husband and I travel to NYC often and were tired of staying in hotels. I'm so glad we decided to stay here. Sofia's apartment is beautiful and spotless. Plenty of room for the two of us. The bed was comfy, as was the chaise for reading. No outside noise -- not even from the neighbors. Everything was as advertised, and we hope to stay there again. Great neighborhood (try the homemade noodle place on East Broadway!) and a short walk to the subway. Sofia is great (as is her sister). Highly recommend."
