    Colleen has been a great host, very kind and helpful. It has felt as being at home. Colleen´s place is very clean and tidy and has all the facilities I needed. Even though it is a bit far from the center, it is very well connected by a very quick subway line, so it is very easy to go anywhere in New York City from her place. The building has security and the area is very safe. The price is very good and I advise you to take advantage of her wonderful cooking skills. I definitely recommend this home stay.

    Nuestro hijo de 15 años, viajo solo a casa de Colleen y realmente el trato y acompañamiento y el lugar donde lo recibió fue EXCELENTE. lo fue a esperar al aeropuerto con mucha diligencia y lo ayudó a orientarse en la ciudad de una forma muy didactica. Es una muy buena anfitriona y da una muy rica comida. totalmente recomendable

    Do not hesitate to choose this hostess. She is both kind, friendly and very helpful. I'm thoroughly enjoying my stay with her.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
