Walter's place was just what was needed for a guest visiting from abroad. It is well-kept, self-contained, and in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to public transportation. Walter was accommodating and responsive; much to his credit, my guest's stay was a pleasurable one.

We had a good experience. The place was clean and comfortable. Basic amenities provided, the kitchen had everything we needed. 8 min walk from the subway station, about 45 min – 1h ride to Manhattan (depending on the time of the day and subway service). The garden is not maintained – but we did not spend a lot of time there.

We had a great time staying at Walter's place! Apartment is super clean (not a single cockroach! ) and exactly as described and photographed. 5 minutes walk to nearest subway. Quiet and safe neighborhood - no problems coming back home after dark at all. Walter is very communicative and always ready to help. The weather in NY was pretty cold during our stay so we asked Walter to turn on the heating and that was done very promptly. Nice place, great owner, highly recommended!
