Francesca was such a lovely host; we had such a wonderful time staying with her. She was very communicative before our arrival and also whilst we were there giving recommendations on places to go and things to see; and to make our stay even more special made us dinner our first night (and it was so delicious !!). The apartment is awesome, very spacious, especially for Manhattan, with lots of natural light, and getting your own bathroom is such a bonus. Loved that there was a balcony off the main living area but also off our bedroom - so lovely to catch the morning, or afternoon, sun ! Especially with a coffee and bagel in hand from one of the local eateries. The apartment is really well situated, not far from the subway, in a safe family-friendly neighbourhood, I absolutely loved it. Would definitely stay with Francesca again next time I'm in NYC.
