We stayed at Marea’s apartment for 10 nights. It was spacious , had a huge yard for manhattan , an adequate kitchen , and large rooms . I would recommend this apartment to families or large groups.
Marea’s apartment was perfect for our visit to New York , she welcomed us warmly with drinks and nibbles in the garden of the apartment and gave us all the information we needed for sight seeing and ways to get around Manhattan , not to mention her fantastic list of amazing restaurants.
The apartment had everything you need from comfortable beds to a fully equipped kitchen,
I would definitely recommend Marea’s apartment to friends and family and hopefully will go back ourselves in the future.
Thank you Marea for the use of your apartment and for being a wonderful hostess.
Kind regards , Sarah and family
Marea was one of the best hosts we've ever had. Even though our flight was delayed, and we didn't get in until around 11 p.m., she welcomed us and gave us all of the information we needed to enjoy the home, the neighborhood and the sites. The location was perfect. Close to restaurants and stores. The home was relaxing and had everything we needed. We were a family of 4 with two teenagers. We used both the main apartment and the adjacent suite, which gave us lots of room to spread out after a full day of "togetherness." HIGHLY recommend.
This location was great. Close to many attractions walking distance or to catch public transport however.... stay did not start off good. Was told to call Marea’s assistant when we arrived at airport because she was out of town. He would be there to great us. Called several time and no answer. Arrived at the apartment and someone else greeted us and told us she was the new assistant. It was the hottest day of the year in NYC and when we arrived the ac units were not turned on. Apartment was very warm. Came home later that night and there were ants all over the kitchen floor counters and wall. I called Marea’s son and he said Claudia would come tomorrow to clean and bring ant spray. He text later the next day and said Claudia could not get in the apartment because we locked the door. Most of the door handle were about to fall off and were very hard to lock. I asked if he had an extra key and he did not, so she left the ant spray in the hall. The ants continue the hole time we were there. Also every time you opened the front door to the apartment horse flys would get in because the trash cans were right outside the front entry way. There was a sewer smell in the bathroom the hole time. Bathroom door would not close because of uneven floor. We had to leave the exhaust fan running during our visit to get ride of the smell. There were cobwebs on the ceilings throughout the apartment. The sheets on the queen bed look very pretty but felt very hard and the lace was annoying to sleep with. I would not recommend this apartment for the price we paid. To many inconveniences! Only good thing was location.
First of all the location of this apartment is as good as it gets ! Central to all the key sites and attractions and all within 1000 metres and therefore walking distance to all of these but taxis are readily available if required. Our welcoming by owner Marea was VIP treatment and her welcoming pack was so informative it gave us all the detail required to assess the whole of Manhattan and surrounding areas including key information to fine restaurants and breakfast bars. Although it does say accommodation for up to 10 people realistically it is a 6 person apartment. Only a small issue but bathrooms are small and bath is really more of a shower area facility but not a problem in the grand scheme of things.
Garden to rear is amazing and fantastic to sit out with a drink ( weather permitting )
Main living room area is extremely comfortable and adjoining kitchen has all the facilities for cooking and dining if you prefer to eat in, including a dishwasher that will do all your washing up.
All in all a fantastic accommodation in our opinion very good value for money so suffice to say would highly recommend.
Marea the owner was so helpful with several issues we had including printing off key documents for our return journey back to England.
Thanks again Marea for a fantastic stay !!!!
Kind Regards Kevin & Jennifer
