Lara and I are both friendly respectful housemates and hosts. We are from Australia and Spain and are both musicians in our mid thirties who enjoy cooking, music, studying and travelling.

I loved my stay at Rajiv and Lara's place. They were lovely and helpful, and I got to go and listen to some of their performances. The location is great because it's right next to a Subway station. The house was very clean. All in all, a great 6 weeks!

I spent 2 months at Raj's and my only regret is that it wasn't longer. The building is located in a really safe area and less than a block away from the closest subway station, with 4 different trains (2 local and 2 express), which allow to easily reach every corner of NYC. Their apartment is cozy and clean, completely renovated and tastefully decorated. The room is actually bigger than how it looks like in the pictures and the bed is really comfortable! Last but not least, Raj and Lara are the best hosts I've ever had: they took care of my needs even before I arrived and they are welcoming, kind and friendly, but at the same time, they are not invasive at all and they have a deep respect for their guests privacy. In my case, the fact that they are musicians was definitely a plus, however, for someone who doesn't care about music it won't be a problem, since they're very respectful. To sum up, this apartment felt like home to me and if I come back to NYC, I'll definitely choose Raj's again. I can hardly imagine a better place in Manhattan -specially for this price, but better or even similar hosts are just impossible to find. I'm going to miss them and the apartment so much. Thanks for everything, Raj and Lara!!!

Raj and Lara's place was great. I was there for about two months for work and it was lovely and very conveniently located. Even though Raj and Lara were out of town for a part of my stay, I always felt like I could contact them if anything came up or I had questions. I'd definitely recommend their place for any length of stay.

Entry - It was a breeze! Complete instructions were properly delegated. We just had to get inside the building and once we did, we were greeted by Rajiv at the unit door. - We were properly oriented and toured around the unit by Rajiv and Lara and they even left a copy of the house rules and some tips on getting around on the table in the room, along with a New York City guide book for tourists. - They also left us our own keys,then and there so that we can start coming and going as we please. ( We almost always had a bit of a problem with the door, but Rajov coached us through how to lock and unlock it. Haha. And when we couldn't do it, he was always to the rescue, even without us asking. :) ) Area -Great! Near to basic stores, like groceries and convenience stores, cafes, and even fastfood chains. - Literally around 2 minutes walk to the nearest subway - you walk out the building door and walk one straight line to the right, and 2 minutes later, there it is! :) - To get to midtown Manhattan (where Times Square is), you only need to ride one line (no transfers!) - for around 20-25 minutes. Very convenient! - Quite safe. We had no problems with safety and security. Even if we always came home late, we never really encountered anyone or anything suspicious walking home from the subway. Plus, the subway was near to the building, so that's a huge factor, too. The building entrance was also always locked and secured - we had our own keys for that, too. Cleanliness -Hands-down. Superb. Thumbs-up. - Shoes weren't even allowed in the rooms to maintain the cleanliness. - The bathroom, which is shared with Rajiv and his housemates, was ALWAYS clean, which we appreciated. :) The Hosts - Very friendly, approachable and hospitable. They even had a couple of chats with my mom and allowed her to have some coffee when she asked once. :) Always open for questions and since they lived with you in the unit, they were always there if we needed help. They were also very quiet, as if you had your own, private unit, and would not get in your hair if you don't want to be bothered. The Room - As described! Basic, but good. -Queen-sized bed which were perfect for my mom and I (probably good also for a couple, or 2 best friends). - Lamp, table, chair and spacious closet for your clothes. -SPACIOUS. We loved the space especially since we had 3 HUGE luggages and 2 carry-on strollers with us. It all fit with tons of room to spare. - Good ventilation. There was also a small fan - it wasn't very warm while we were there. Though, they might need to provide a bigger fan or some airconditioning when it gets warmer in the summer, because there's only one window. -...

Rajiv and Lara were excellent hosts, they are lovely people, kind and very polite. They helped me many times, were always available and made me feel at home. Their apartment is in an old and charming building that has an elevator and is very close to a subway access, essential to visit NYC. The apartment is renovated, has good facilities in the bathroom and kitchen, both clean and organized. I stayed 18 days with them and I had some work to be done, so the fact of having a desk with chair, good lighting and wifi in the room was very important. The room is quiet and nice, the bed comfortable and the space is small but sufficient. I would return to their apartment for sure, because everything went very well. It was definitely a great experience, thank you Rajiv and Lara! Rajiv e Lara foram excelentes anfitriões, eles são adoráveis, gentis e muito educados. Eles me ajudaram muitas vezes, estavam sempre disponíveis e me fizeram sentir em casa. Seu apartamento está em um edifício antigo e charmoso que tem elevador e está muito perto de um acesso ao metrô, essencial para visitar NYC. O apartamento foi renovado, tem boas instalações no banheiro e na cozinha, ambos limpos e organizados. Eu fiquei 18 dias com eles e tinha trabalho para fazer, de modo que o fato de ter uma mesa com cadeira, boa iluminação e wifi no quarto foi muito importante. O quarto é tranquilo e agradável, a cama confortável e o espaço é pequeno, mas suficiente. Voltaria a me hospedar em seu apartamento com certeza, porque tudo correu muito bem. Foi definitivamente uma grande experiência, obrigada Rajiv e Lara!

Rajiv and Lara are great hosts. The apartment is really lovely and clean with lots of space. It is in a great location - the subway is a 2 minute walk away and connects you to direct train lines to Manhatten. Would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone in New York.
