    Thank you so much for all! I'm so sorry that I had no time to say Good Bye to you :( I can't write you any more, so I do it on this way. Maybe I come to you again next year. And I hope, then we can spend more time together that this week. I had too less time for the whole City.

    Greetings from Germany :)

    Ruth has been a wonderful host. Felt welcomed the moment I stepped into her house and throughout my stay. The location was very safe and subway to downtown just 15 min away (walking distance).
    And if I ever get the chance to visit New York again, I'll stay with Ruth!!!

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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
