Claire was an amazing host to me ! The place was very clean .
Special Event Series at The Gnome House
Claire and David have to be hands-down the best hosts! They are so friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our needs. We were hosting a special event series over several nights in this truly magical home, and they were enthused and supportive every step of the way. A truly spectacular home that was so comforting and truly special in the heart of NYC. We will certainly be looking to stay with them again!
Amazing..amazing..amazing !! Absolutely perfect!
Claire's home is wonderful ! Once inside this beautiful home, you don't even feel like you are in NYC! Super quiet .. even though you are right next to bridge. Bedrooms are large.. beds and linens are luxurious... bathrooms are spacious. Upstairs living area with large kitchen and dining room were perfect for us... we wish we could have enjoyed the outside deck with hot tub but the weather was frigid...very close to some great restaurants and shopping at Bloomingdales !!! We had a blast ! We would definitely recommend this gem of a home and hope to enjoy it again in warmer weather ! Claire and her staff were very attentive and easy to deal with. A truly 5 star Home Away location!!
Charming, well-appointed and perfectly located!
Could not have imagined a more perfect stay for my first Christmas as a single mom with my three kids aged 10-14. Not only is this upper east side gem an oasis of style and comfort, but our host was beyond kind and considerate. From the new slipper socks tucked into the pockets of each fluffy terry bathrobe to the lit and decorated Christmas tree provided in honor of my stay, David’s thoughtfulness and attention to detail were unparalleled. The outdoor patio is HUGE - and with a hot tub! Such a rare find!
Location was perfect for our family: A couple of blocks to Whole Foods; a couple of blocks to the yellow line subway which takes you to time square for shows and 5 th Avenue. We liked the neighborhood feel with small shops and delis. Under the bridge is Starbucks, 4 minutes way. Super safe area. The place is secured by a cage- literally- felt like Fort Knox. David and Claire are perfect hosts/owners. One of our daughters was sick and they went out of their way to make sure she was ok. Nothing’s absolutely perfect of course. There’s wasn’t ice so we had to buy a bag at the corner deli, and it can be difficult to get accustomed to someone else’s home. Still, this place comes close. We hope to stay here again!
Great place - hidden gem in NYC
The pictures don't do this place justice. Plenty of room for a large family or any type of intimate evening with friends. The back patio is huge and a great place to entertain. Had a great night sleep (so quiet inside). Our stay was short but will definitely keep this spot in mind for my next night in the city with friends. The hosts were more than accommodating and the communication was great. 5 stars.
