Recent Manhattan reviews
An excellent option
"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."

"My daughter and I stayed here this past week. It was actually the second time we've rented this property. I would highly recommend this property! The first time we stayed here we had a large group - 10 people in all, and it accommodated us all quite easily. This last visit was just my daughter and I. Joyce was kind enough to allow just the two of us to stay, although the house is really designed for larger groups. We love the neighborhood, completely safe and friendly. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. It's a short, easy walk to the subway and then 15 minutes to Times Square. There are a number of restaurants locally that are an easy walk and very good! If you have a larger number of people, we highly recommend this property!"

"When we walked into this apartment we knew our time in New York would be what we had hoped for.
The apartment was exactly as advertised. It was fantastic; spacious, bright and warm and a great size for our family of 5. The owner had gone out and found this huge Christmas tree (with much effort we later found out), and left the decorations for our kids to put on, it made the stay in New York at Christmas that much more special and we are very appreciative of her efforts.
The location was spot on. It was close to a number of different subway stations on Canal St which gave us very easy access to all areas of Manhattan. For those flying into JFK it is an easy subway ride with no line changes from the Howard Beach station on the A train.
Good shopping areas were a close walk away on Broadway and Canal Streets where you can get everything from cheap tourist mementos to high end fashion. It was also within easy walking distance of the Little Italy/China Town streets where there are many restaurants, we particularly recommend the famous, Ferrera Bakery and Cafe on Grand Street, one of our favourite places in New York, and for Chinese we had a great meal and experience at Wo Hop, in the basement at 17 Mott Street.
The owners were great to deal with and we could not recommend them, their apartment or the great city of New York more highly. Thanks to them for helping to give us a memorable family holiday."
