Allie was a very generous host. She was very accomodating and quick to reply to any questions or concerns. The apartment was located on beautiful Columbia campus and was very clean and more spacious than assumed. The stay was short, but very comfortable. Thanks for your hospitality, Allie!

We stayed at Allie's place with our two kids (2-year and 3-month old) for the long labor day weekend. The apartment is in a great location if you need to stay close to Columbia University, just next to campus and very close to Riverside Park, ideal for walking and playing with the kids. In addition, Allie makes things very easy with all the post-it notes left for her guests around the apartment, with very clear instructions and tips. The place was spot clean and with enough spare room to arrange our things. Allie checked on us regularly to make sure we had all we needed and was very quick to respond when we needed a quick fix to open the bathroom door, which had been accidentally locked from inside. My husband and I will definitely check Allie's place again if we travel to NY in the near future!

Instructions given and the overall experience was perfect and could not have asked for much more. Apartment was in excellent condition and it was a pleasure to have stayed there.

In general , everything was fine. They had few blankets and pillows. It's nicer in pictures than in real life. Very nice neighborhood , very quiet. The TV did not work and no keyboard to the computer. Allie always. Allie was always aware of the messages. The air conditioning is a bit noisy.

Thank you for the review and the feedback, Felipe. We are glad that you liked the location and quietness of our apartment. We apologize for the blanket supply, and we'll add more to the current two sets of blankets. Some of your comments need clarifications, though: 1. The "computer" is only a screen that needs to be hooked with a real computer, and we bought it for us to read PDF files, so naturally there isn't a keyboard. 2. The TV doesn't come with a cable, and this was specified in the description of our apartment. We use Apple TV instead. 3. And finally, we apologize for the air conditioning--the noise of window A/C is a common issue in NYC, for most buildings are old and thus are not equipped with central A/C. Window A/Cs are never quiet as soundly sleeping babies, and the best way to keep them less noisy is to make sure it doesn't go full speed. Meanwhile, we will work on solving the issue. Thanks again for the feedback! Allie

We didn't meet Allie in person because she was in Asia. She arranged for someone to let us into the building and had easy access to the apartment keys. Although there was a 12 hour time difference Allie responded in a timely manner to questions by email. The apartment was clean & comfortable, in a walkable area with nearby cafes, groceries, sightseeing and close to the subway. It was especially convenient to us as we were visiting our first grandchild. We would definitely choose to stay here again. Thanks Allie!

My husband and I are both PhD candidates, from Columbia and Princeton respectively. We are both fond of traveling and exploring different cultures. Having travelled in different continents in the past few years, we know very well what to expect after a long flight from abroad, or…
