Hosts were very accommodating when my flight arrived outside
of normal check in time due to snow storm.
Location is right near magnolia bakery and Greenwich village shopping street. Literally 20 seconds walk.
Size of townhouse was great, especially by NYC standards.
Toaster oven was dirty when I arrived and I pointed this out but it was never cleaned throughout the whole week that I was there. Also bath / shower could have been cleaned better. Perhaps daily service does not include this? But each day new towels arrived and bed was made. Since I was there nearly a week bed linen was changed during my stay.
Overall I was very happy there.
One tip for anyone booking more than 2 months in advance. The terms and conditions on the web site say that these bookings are subject to special payment conditions which are supposed to be provided when requesting the booking. I was not provided with this and after paying a rather large deposit was then told I had to pay the balance within a week or I would lose my deposit. This seemed very sneaky and made me very nervous since I was relying only on the Internet information and could have been dealing with a dodgy company. Given that I was staying nearly a week the sum of money was quite substantial and I had originally budgeted to pay the balance on arrival as was stated in the t&c's. When I pointed out via email that this was misleading I was told that it is the conditions of bookings 2 months or more in advance and I could have a refund of my deposit and cancel my booking if I wished. Even though I was still uncomfortable with the approach I went ahead and everything went fine. The drawback is that once you have booked and prepaid you are locked in and can't get your money back if you change your plans. This is not like all other accommodation options at hotels which have various cancellation options that don't break the bank. I understand that W.E. is a private type property so they need to cover themselves. I dare say they can also do it because they are quite unique and in such a great spot. So just make sure you are sure of your dates before paying any money and you will be fine.
