Lovely little apartment in a buzzing area. Great bars and restaurants off the beaten track. Gwen was a wonderful host who was always on hand for any queries. Highly recommended.

Our host, Gwen, made us feel very welcome from the start. She responded quickly to our initial enquiry and was always easy to reach when we had any questions. The flat is up several steep flights of stairs, which would not make it suitable for everybody, but it was ideal for our purposes. The surrounding area is great and it was also the perfect jumping-off point for exploring Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Gwen is a very kind host. The studio felt good to me. I am happy I stayed with her.

If I could give this six stars I would, especially in the area of communication. When I'm not on vacation my schedule is jam packed and Gwen was proactive about making sure all the details were taken care of in a friendly way that ensured there were no snags whatsoever (and made me feel like if there were she would have been really responsive). The apartment itself was just what we were looking for, a launching pad into a lively neighborhood densely packed with restaurants, bars, and shopping. Yes, it is a fifth floor walkup, yes it is small (though I've certainly seen smaller in NYC) and the furnishings basic, but it is clean and bright and Gwen goes out of her way to use limited space in a thoughtful way. The building felt safe and secure, and we were not disturbed by neighbors or street noise. I looked at a lot of different apartments in this budget range/area and Gwen's stood out due to its cute decor (other places made me feel like.... why does thrifty have to be depressing?). I wasn't sure what to expect beyond that, but I'm so glad we booked this apartment. Gwen really does care about the comfort of her guests and it shows. Highly recommended.

Myself and my partner stayed here over the Christmas period 2016 and we loved it. Gwen is such a wonderful host, being flexible with check-in times and checking in with us regularly throughout our two week stay in the apartment. The location of the place was great, it's close to a huge number of restaurants as well as St Mark's Place which has a great nightlife scene. It's only about two blocks from a subway station with the L train, and about a ten minute walk from Union Square subway station which has even more subways. The building is quiet and the apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures. We really can't compliment Gwen enough!

Gwen is very kind and caring. She took the time and effort to help me with laundry and other questions that I had. Everything else as described. I'd stay with her anytime.

Our time in New York couldn't have been better thanks to Gwen! She was a great host, always keeping in contact with me until we arrived. She went out of her way to meet us and offer us her help whenever we needed it. We asked her questions throughout our stay and she always responded in a timely manner without hesitation! Her place was an easy taxi/Uber ride to any destination! And was everything we saw. If we had to stay in New York again I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Gwen's.
