Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved staying in your apartment. We walked all over Manhattan, came back for a glass of wine, walked back into the New York night, had dinner and listened to music, all with in walking distance. We were New Yorkers for eleven days. The apartment is perfect for two couples or six young people. Our dealings with Mandy were very easy. We would stay here again and we would also recommend the apartment to friends.

Dynamite Location, Fun NYC Apartment

  • 5 of 5
I cannot imagine ever staying in a hotel again after my experience staying at this apartment! The location is perfect for exploring the city -- five minutes in any direction and you can be in SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown and the East Village -- or on the subway up to Central Park and Times Square. The neighborhood is hip like the NYC you see in movies.

The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious (by New York standards). The apartment is fully-equipped and we found everything we needed. It is a great retreat after a long day of sightseeing.

Mandy is a lovely hostess and didn't hesitate to recommend great restaurants and bars in the area (there are a ton). I'd stay here again in a heartbeat, not only because it's a fab space and location -- but an excellent bargain for the price (especially when compared to the hotels in the area).

Perfect Location for all things FUN

  • 5 of 5
Traveling from Alaska one is never quite sure that what you see is what you're going to get. But this apartment gives you an accurate description of where it is and what it has to offer. We traveled for my sister's 50th birthday trip bringing our husbands along as well. The location could not have been better for all things NYC. There are two subway stops within a 2 minute walk, the Whole Foods is amazing and the YMCA offers a wonderful workout facility. There are so many restaurants, bodegas, pubs that you would never actually need to leave, everything is within walking distance. However, anything that you want to do uptown is a simple F train to Rockefeller Center, could not be easier to get around. There are also cabs and buses readily available. We all felt extremely safe as well.
The apartment is tight for two couples but very manageable but again the description is completely accurate. Mandy was very easy to deal with and answered all my questions and was responsive to my emails. You cannot go wrong with this apartment, you won't regret renting it. Vezina/Evers Party

Convenient and affordable on the Lower East Side

  • 4 of 5
Let me start off by saying that we were both very happy with the apartment; for the money you won't find better accommodation for two friends. That said, I'll also say this:

1) It's the perfect size for two friends travelling together. Two _couples_, however, might find it a bit cramped for anything more than a weekend, especially with only one bathroom.

2) The apartment isn't _really_ in SoHo. Technically, yes, it's south of Houston Street (five feet south :-) ), but the neighbourhood in which it's found is more accurately described as the Lower East Side. Don't let that put you off, though; the LES is home to many fun things to see and do. (A little more later.)

3) The apartment had the usual amenities (kitchen, bathroom, etc.), all in good condition, but probably the best one, or at least the one we used the most, was the iMac in the living room. The iMac (and the WiFi that went along with it) was worth a significant portion of the price of admission alone.

4) The apartment was clean and well-maintained, and (for those worried about such things) showed no signs of bedbugs at all. That said, promised shampoo and shower gel wasn't there on arrival. A quick trip to the store fixed that, however.

5) Mandy (the owner) was very easy to deal with, and very responsive to questions. Her busy schedule caused her, at one point, to lose track of our departure date and the amount of money we'd paid, but this was all very easily dealt with. Make sure you keep a record of all of that too, just in case. (Some of this may have been our fault too; we changed arrival and departure dates a couple of times.)

6) There's lots to do in the 'hood. Personal high points for me included leather jacket shopping on Orchard Street, The Pickle Guys, Yonah Schimmel Knishes (downstairs), Katz's Deli (just down Houston Street), and Veselka's at 2nd Avenue and 9th Street. Whole Foods is also very close by, and there's a movie theatre right next door if you like. The apartment is also really close to the F train subway stop (the closest entrance is probably the one in front of Whole Foods), which you can take to Coney Island or points north. However convenient it is, I'll add that if you're planning on spending your time in midtown at the theatres, you may want to look at other properties a little farther north, unless you don't mind spending 10 or 15 minutes commuting back and forth on the F train every day.

You can tell by now we liked it. I think you will too.

great location to stay in NYC

  • 4 of 5
This was a nice, no frills place to stay for a family of 4. We stayed 8 nights in the heat of the summer (2 days upper 90s). The air conditioner was a big plus and really helped with street noise at night. The apartment pictures truly represent the apartment and it's charm. Lots of stuff very close and Mandy provided excellent dining recommendations in the neighborhood. Also, Mandy was very helpful with a late departure time by allowing us to keep our bags in the apartment for part of the day.

Great location, great apartment - ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5
Myself and a friend stayed here from 24 Nov to 2 Dec 2011 and found this apartment to be excellent. Mandy, our host, was great to deal with - prompt communication (emails and texts), answering all our questions and enabling a really easy check-in on the evening of Thanksgiving Day. The wonderful central location means that we could zip all over Manhattan and to Brooklyn very easily - there are lots of different subways close by as well as buses. On the couple of rare occaisons we hailed a late night taxi the ride from midtown was quick - and less than $10. As others have commented, this area is full of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, delis - everything and anything you need is just a short walk away. Plus it is right next door to a cinema - perfect for a relaxed evening when you're just a bit too tired to wander the streets anymore. Mandy's apartment is clean and comfortable - it was lovely to come back up there in the late afternoon to kick back with a glass of wine & a freshen up before venturing out again for the evening. From time to time you can notice a bit of street noise in the living room - but when the bedroom doors are closed you don't hear it - and we did like the view from the fire escape - lots of life happening down below! There is no washer or dryer but we happily used the laundry service nearby on the corner of Rivington Street - same day wash, dry and fold. Oh - and do try and get down the street to grab a Russ & Daughters bagel with whitefish salad (or cream cheese) - mmm. We hope to stay here again one day...

Your oasis is the concrete jungle

  • 4 of 5
Mandy has been the perfect host, very easy to deal with, even all the way from oz. Everything was accurate in her description and photo's. The best thing that this place has going for it is the location, if anyone has reservations about staying so far from midtown .., DONT. Midtown is a zoo and we couldnt wait to get back home to our 'hood after doing all the touristy things, almost everything you need is within walking distance (2 mile radius). Best area for shopping, eating( momofuku), drinking(spitzers - 40 beers on tap), an amazing spanish wine shop down the road(just would need a few extra wine glasses and champagne flutes if there only 1 drinker :( . It really was a home for the 12 days we were there. Will certainly be back and recommend it to anyone wanting a great place. Brett & Caz from sunny Queensland

Owner's Response: Hey Brett-

Thanks for the great review and I completely agree about staying the neighborhood (so much better then midtown). Also, the extra wine glasses were just delivered today. Thanks and see you and Caroline soon. Hopefully next time it will snow when you come back.

Cheers-
