  • No surprises is a very good thing

    "I am an ex-NYer who came back for business and pleasure for 3 weeks last month. I usually stay with friends but not for a period this long. I saw this unit online and did my first HomeExchange rental. I was extremely pleased with following: 1) owner and his orientation to apartment and building services and his guidebook- very hands on and helpful, even with my bags both coming and going also; 2) unit- it looks exactly as you see it on the listing- very light, bright; 3) Location is perfect in mid-town where I needed to be- 30 min walk to theatre district and Grand central subways are 5 minutes away; 4) cleanliness-I am vary wary of bugs given my prior NY history. Not 1 bug did I see in the unit or building!!; 5) internet worked like a charm; 6) large closet with lots of hangers; 7) it's on a street, not avenue so relatively quiet; 8) People in the building that I met were nice and they even had a December holiday party in the lobby for the residents and staff- very well attended (this did not happen in building when I lived in NY). FedEx, Dagostinos, Shake Shack are a stone's throw away and owner told me there's a vegan bakery at block's end. Only downsides- everything is white so as a red wine drinker I had to be very cautious. Even coffee grounds will stain a counter if you don't wipe them right away. Teeny kitchenette- not really practical for making a meal, but simple stuff (oatmeal, toasting bagel, reheating takeout, making coffee, etc.) works fine and for a small fridge you can fit a lot in. I suggest owner get some place mats and coasters given the "white" situation and wash cloths for bathroom would be nice addition too. Would definitely rent from him again and recommend to others. Additional note: if you try to make a pickup reservation with SuperShuttle online the address shows up as a hotel and SS charges a surcharge for hotel pickups, so you need to make your reservation by phone to save the $20+. The doorman did tell me that it used to be a Hilton many moons ago."

  • Lived like a local!

    "We enjoyed staying at Joe and Vera's over Easter weekend.....never stayed in a neighborhood before and we really enjoyed it. Walked to the small market close by as well as several neighborhood restaurants. Subway was close by that made it very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Apartment was a 2 story walkup and was located on a beautiful street."

  • Great Place to stay..

    "Just returned from my trip with 5 ladies and we can't say enough about how wonderful this apartment was. The beds were so comfortable after a long day walking around town. It was so quiet we almost forgot where we were. The neighbors were friendly and the guys that work at the corner store were awesome and very helpful. Subway was easy to get to we did use UBER to get home at night (fairly inexpensive). I look forward to staying here again."

  • Wonderful place close to everything!

    "Easy to work with owner. Warm welcome to amazing apartment. Clean & roomy (yes, roomy). Well furnished. We were a family of three but there is room for 4-5. We've rented other vacation places in NYC before but this has been the best experience to date. The apartment is close to the metro, shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Safe and quiet neighborhood."
