What an amazing flat! Perfect in every single way! Do not hesitate to book it if you're off to NY.
it was great!!!! this appartment is perfectly located in a very lively neighbourhood and a lot of sights are within walking distance. christina gave us a very warm welcome and a lot of great suggestions for places to go. we felt more like visiting a friend than a complete stranger.
the appartment is very spacious and comfortable- we instantly felt at home!! chrysler building is greeting you through the bedroom window!
it was perfect!!!!!
Ok...whatever you do, DO NOT rent this place. Seriously, you'll hate it. Worst experience I've had since using AirB2B....
Well, not really. I was hoping to scare potential renters away because it is simply the best place I've ever rented on AirBnB. Christina was the best host I've had and her apartment is simply an oasis that you don't find in NYC. Sunny, clean, spacious, safe, quiet, 2-bath, etc. With a very European feel.
Also, I'm a big fan of the lower east side, so the neighborhood choice was perfect.
Overall -- my best experience on AirBnB yet...
You could not do better than stay at Christina's apartment! She is the perfect host and takes good care of her guests very well. The apartment is absolutely amazing!!! For a New York apartment it is enormous! Plenty of space for four and would even be good for six. It is well situated in East Village, which I loved! Easy access to all transportation.
I cannot say enough good things about everything to do with our stay.
Thank you for being such a hospitable and accommodating host Christina! I know where I'll be staying the next time I'm in New York!
We stayed at Christina's for ten days and had the most wonderful experience.
First, the location is great - East Village, SoHo, all the cool and hip places at your doorstep. Vintage shops, lovely restaurants (try St Marks Place), all made us feel like we were actually New Yorkers.
Second, the flat is a HOME. It is beautiful, bright and very spacious: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, massive lounge, walk-in closet and even a terrace!
And of course Christina is simply great, wonderful host who made us feel very welcome.
Thank you for the lovely memories and amazing trip.
Not only was the place amazing but Christina was an incredible host as well. I am a bit manic about choosing places to stay on vacations and I thoroughly evaluated all of the various websites and options throughout the city. Christina's place was even better than pictured. It was clean and comfortable and Christina made us feel like we were visiting a friend's place rather than a total stranger's. The location was great, you can really get anywhere in Manhattan in 10-15 minutes. The building is nice (with an elevator) and there is plenty to do in the neighborhood if you feel like staying close. Further, you can't beat 2 bathrooms! While I could go on and on about the place and the location, really, you simply cannot find a better host than Christine. If you've come upon this link in a search for a place to stay, really, stop. Just don't waste your time and cross your fingers that this gem is available.
We had a wonderful trip to New York, the apartment we rented from Christina was absolutely fabulous. Christina was the perfect host.
She was there to welcome us and she was in reach within minutes, for all kind of quidance.
I would and have highly recommend this apartment and Christina Polcari as host.
Christina was great! She had to change our meeting time because she had an appointment, so she left us a bottle of wine as a gift for being accommodating to her schedule. The place is HUGE, I mean with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and large living room, our friends that lived in the area were envious of our digs!
She was great beforehand, telling us the best pizza places around (one of my friends is obsessed with NY pizza, and the great hangouts in the area). There are really amazing hole-in-the-wall restaurants within walking distance too (there is a mac-n-cheese only place, a dumpling place with the most amazing fried rice we have ever eaten, and this pizza place called Artichoke which had a line out the door - and we can see why).
All and all, we were centrally located, could ALWAYS catch a cab, everyone in the building was super nice, the place itself was an A+, and Christina was a great host.
Christina was a wonderful house guest! From the start she was super easy to communicate with and I felt like I was letting a friend stay at my place. She was absolutely respectful of my things and house rules. I easily trusted her in my space, and she took great care of my apartment. I would happily have Christina stay again, or better yet, go grab a glass of wine together!
Unfortunately I did not meet Christina, other than to call out one morning from my upstairs bathroom. She was quiet, respectful of the property, easy to communicate with (by phone) and left the room very neat and orderly. I would welcome her back anytime.
Christina was a fantastic and fun guest, who followed all protocol and left the flat perfectly clean. Highest recommendation.
Christina never showed up for her reservation. I sent her many e-mails, and t telephoned her often. So did Airbnb staff. Our room was kept available to Christina throughout her reservation. So sorry I/we never met this extraordinarily quiet guest!
Her e-mails and reviews indicate that she's wonderful.
great guest, easy and cooperative
I am still surprised to have found the place exactly as I left it except for one thing,
an extra bottle of wine sitting on the counter with a note. (Thank you for that!)
Totally recommend Christina to everyone! She is amazing!
