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.

This was our first stay in a VRBO & it could not have been more perfect. Everything was as stated & photographed on the VRBO site, and we would definitely recommend this to anyone without hesitation. The owner was responsive within a few minutes to all our email inquiries & gave us some good tips about navigating Manhattan. The apartment was very clean, had all the amenities listed & was close to the subway & a grocery store (which we used to get breakfast goodies). We did not cook while there, but if someone wanted to, everything was available to make meals. Honestly, this was a great experience & if we were ever to return to Manhattan, we would definitely stay here. Thank you, Gerri!

This is a stylish, immaculate apartment with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Geraldine's place is her home which, for the short time we were there, made us feel like New Yorkers. From Geraldine's attentiveness to detail to the doormen's advice, they made our stay easier and most enjoyable.

Comfortable apartment, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This one-bedroom apartment is attractive, comfortable and located about 1/2 mile from metro stop. We were warmly greeted by owner's assistant who made sure we understood all details. The owner is a cook, kitchen is well-stocked and the knives are sharp. We once rented a place with knives so dull that cutting an orange was an ordeal. Comfortable queen-size bed, pleasant living room with radio and TV (we don't watch much TV, it seemed fine), good wifi. Building is on a side street with relatively little traffic. A Fairway grocery store is at the end of the block; for those who don't know NYC, that is an excellent store with a wide selection, open till 11 PM. Lots of interesting restaurants in the area. We'd stay here again.
