A Delightful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love to live like the locals when we travel, and this was the perfect fit. From being greeted with a hug from Danuta upon arrival to chatting with the neighbors and doormen to doing laundry in the basement, we got the full experience. The apartment is lovely and just as described, it lacked for nothing. Certainly a place I would return to and never hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Elegant, spacious, well equipped home in Kips Bay

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I had the pleasure of staying in Gerri’s home. Upon arrival we were greeted by a wonderful, warm, friendly lady who is Gerri’s assistant. She aquatinted us with everything, making sure we were comfortable.

The pictures accurately reflect the space but honestly don’t do it justice. It is actually even more spacious and decorated with a homey elegant vibe. The air conditioners (there are 2) work very well and kept the space nice and cool and believe me it was HOT outside for the first 2 days, 91 one day and 87 the next! The kitchen has high quality equipment and nice sharp knives, which we greatly appreciated for the appetizers we made.

There is a nice TV which we only watched very late at night because we were tromping all over Manhatten morning til night. The bed was very comfortable, the hideabed in the living room wasn’t bad at all, we traded off each night.

There is a spectacular private HUGE park behind the apartment. It has a playground, large lawns, tables, lawn chairs and beautiful trees and gardens. It’s like an oasis. We went outside a few night to enjoy wine.

The location is very convenient. A short 5 minute walk to the cross town bus and in a different direction, another short 5 minute walk to the subway. We walked to the theatre district and then back after the show to the apartment. The neighborhood feels very safe. There are multiple wonderful restaurants close by. There is also a movie theatre complex 2 minutes away so we took advantage of that as well.

I would LOVE to stay here again in the future. Gerri is very responsive and checks in to make sure everything is ok. Definitely the best VRBO experience I’ve ever had.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 8 nights in this lovely well equipped clean apartment and we highly recommend staying here. The kitchen has everything you would ever want to cook with and there is a grocery store in the same block. Gerri responds very quickly and the key exchange went exactly as planned. We would definitely stay here again!!

Beautiful apartment, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at Gerri's apartment. It is beautifully decorated, included all amenities, and is in a great location. Gerri communicated quickly and left thorough notes in the apartment. She provided suggestions of things to do and places to eat. We would never stay anywhere else when we return to the city.
