Great Place to Stay
My husband and I stayed here for five weeks. The area is wonderful with food stores, banks and parks within easy walking distance. The apartment is roomy and immaculate. I appreciated the amenities including hairdryer, cooking utensils and washer and dryer on the same floor as the apartment. The only complaint I have is that the mattress was very hard, which was fine for my husband but not for me. All in all, a great place to stay.
Not going to do use the service.
We are disappointed the way Juliana had communicated with us through out Anya's stay in NY. Hearing back from her had been a slow process. Getting in touch with her over the phone, email or text had been a difficult process. Her email turn around had been 24-48 hours. She never had answered or respond back to our text or call.
On top of that, our last email request for extension, Juliana had decided to ignore. She didn't inform us that she had sorted out the extension with Anya's mom. We found out a day before our original checkout day. We learned about the arrangements when we reached out to Anya's mother after a week of trying to sort the last one day extension with her. We reached out to inform Anya's mom that we had not being able to get hold of Juliana. This is when she informed us about the arrangement. Even though in my original email; I had clearly mentioned we will be paying for the 1 additional night to 4/30/16. After multiple attempts and form of trying to get hold of Juliana; I even called HomeAway customer service TWICE. They sent her an urgent email about this. Yet, she still were not responsive.
Her unresponsive behavior was unprofessional, lazy and disrespectful. From the beginning we informed Juliana Anya is one of our actress who will be staying at her place while she works for us. So clearly, when she made the arrangements with Anya's mom, she decided to completely disregard us.
This was our first time using Home Away service. Juliana clearly made sure we had an unpleasant experience. We won't be using Juliana or Home Away's service in the future. We have been doing this for a while and never had such difficulty to contact or bluntly had been ignored by an owner. Also the fact that when we had difficulties getting in touch with her, home away wasn't much of a help. This clarified that it was a mistake for us to even do business with homeway.
Staying in this charming neighborhood building will give you a real sense of the New York experience and the life as a local. The shops in the vicinity carry everything you will need for a perfect stay.
