My first correspondence was with Allison who was great! She responded to all of my questions in a timely manner, and assisted when there were a few complications booking my stay. Upon arrival, I met David who was both warm, and welcoming. He showed my friend and I around, and even offered a selection of spirits to ring in the New Year. Their place is cozy, and quaint. It felt like home. I absolutely enjoyed my stay in Union, and I'd definitely stay again.

I lived there for a 1.5 month. It is a 2 floor house. You will live on the first floor whereas there are 2 males live on the second floor, including your host. I will start with advantages of living in this apartment and then continue to disadvantages. Advantages. 1) There is a bus station within 15 minutes of walking. The bus that gets there can take you to Manhattan for 50-80 minutes; really depends on a traffic 2) Also, the bed feels comfortable. And that's it. Disadvantages. 1) Ants are everywhere. They are just everywhere: in your bed, in your clothes, in your kitchen, and in your bathroom. Also, I found some small scolopendras shuffling around on my kitchen. 2) The main problem is that the heater is extremely(!) loud. If it is ON during a night, nobody will ever be able to sleep. It is just impossible! If it is ON during a day, you will never be able to concentrate on work or anything else. It is an endless huge problem. But the worst thing that you personally cannot control this process because if the host keeps his personal heater ON on the 2nd floor, the problem continues to exist. I was told that it was happening because the winter just started at that moment and it will disappear soon, but later on - in the middle of the winter - the problem still continued to exist. 3) If it is relatively cold outside, the maximum temperature you will be able to keep in the apartment is 72F or 22C. 4) If you like taking a hot or warm shower, you will not be able to do it here. The hot water stops going after just 3 minutes of taking a shower and then it gradually becomes colder and colder until it becomes just cold. Also, the shower itself is a bit broken, some portion of water goes directly to the floor skipping a person himself. 5) There is a big glass door on the kitchen that you can use as an extra entrance from the outside.The problem is that the glass door and a window next to it don't have сurtains, so everyone who is passing by on the streets can see you and what you are doing on the kitchen. 6) If you dont have a car, there are no any groceries withing a walking distance. 7) One of the two windows in the bedroom doesn't get closed on lock. So, it feels kind of anxious when you are out or sleeping. Conclusion: I usually prefer not to post any negative reviews and furthermore I have never done that before on this website. But this time was my worst experience in Airbnb. I will never come here again.

Response from Allison And David:
We thank Arty for his comments and will gladly clarify our view of the Airbnb experience that motivates us. We are happy to share our under utilized and available space with guests in search of clean, reasonably priced accommodation in a safe , friendly and warm environment. Our home is not a Hotel nor do we wish it to be. -The two males referred to are my brothers co-owners of this family residence. Arty was introduced to them, together with my ,other and myself, we were visiting on the day Arty arrived. The noise of the heating system was addressed by a heating technician who in Arty's presence explained why the system made little noises. We suggested to Arty that if the "noise " was too distracting he could relinquish his booking. He declined this suggestion. A brief view of a map supplied by Airbnb will show the proximity of shops and shopping yo our residence. If Arty used the information available to him , a car service or even a free ride with my brothers could have been arranged. None of the other litany of woes mentioned even merit a response since it begs the question, why would anyone bear such discomfort for forty five days? Our record of hospitality speak for itself. One wonders why Arty failed to let us know that these irritants were present when his keen sense of observation informed us that bulbs in our light fixture were not lighting on the very first day of his stay. We clarified for him that the bulbs had been loosened by a previous guest who did not need too much light. We are disappointed to note that no mention was made of the broken toilet seat and the destroyed kettle left behind by this guest. We wish Arty all the best in his future travels and a better Airbnb experience. It is noteworthy that no other guest has ever given negative feedback about the cleanliness of our apt.

It was the best ever experience at davids place. He is kind and helpful person. The best part was when he came all the way for us when we were about to miss the bus, and dropped us at the stop. Really enjoyed the stay at his place. Highly recommended.

While we never got to meet Allison and David, they were responsive and courteous over email. The place was very cozy and clean and had everything we needed. We especially liked the beautiful brick wall. We wish you all the best.
