    Staying with Eva is a great thing~ ^.^ Her place is very clean, neat and comfortable, considering that house is a hundred years old! The decorations are of colonial style, and if you are lucky enough, you can book the room with the balcony and the view on the second floor. Besides, Eva, our host, is very amiable and loves to share with us her life experiences in White Plains. She'll tell you where to go for delicious food (esp. Peruvian cuisine), where to shop, etc. Above all, the house is very close to Metro North Train Station-White Plains, only five minutes by walk. And the shopping mall is only ten minutes away, the Sears, the Macy's, the food street Mamaroneck, the supermarket ShopRite... We (three adults) had a wonderful time there.

    Eva is a wonderful host. She made me feel very welcome, as did other members of her family when they visited the house. Eva was more than happy to give help and advice during my stay. The home is very clean and tidy and in a convenient location for NYC. It was nice to be with such a sociable and friendly host when I was travelling alone. I would highly recommend staying with Eva in White Plains. Lovely :-)

    We spent 2 wonderfull weeks in Eva's house in White Plains. The entire familly made it all easy for us , from the beginning till the end of our journey in NYC. The house is well decorated and furnished and the guests have their own bathroom and comfort.
    The house is situated in the countryside of the town of White Plains, so that you can enjoy both nature and wonderful outlets and restaurants and everything you need.
    If you have teenagers, they will feel at ease and share time with the kids, since everyone lives in perfect respect of one another. Eva is a very warm and pleasant person and she likes to share culture,experience and time with her guests.
    You can also think about renting a car because you have a parking place and you can drive to Connecticut, to see beautiful beaches and little harbors, a 20 minutes drive.
    The place is only 30 minutes from Gran Central metro and subway station of NYC, which takes you right in Times Square!
    Don't hesitate to rent a room to Eva in White Plains! Laure, Thomas and Mathias

    Eva is so kind and attentive. She was the best host I've ever met. She always cared me if everything was fine. At the first day, she kindly helped me to discover what i need to know. As I was not used to living in US, I had some worry about that. However, I can adjust well by Eva's favor. In addition, her family and dog(BaBa) always welcomed me.
    The house is located at near the downtown WhitePlains, and it is located at near the train. So, i was really satisfied living eva's house. I completely recommend to stay eva's house. You can experience to stay with comfortable.

    I stayed at Eva’s house for 10days. Eva is a lovely lady and one of the best host I have ever met. The house is about 30-40 minutes away from Grand Central Station, its very clean, quiet and lovely decoration inside. It was my first time in NYC, she showed me around
    White Plains and gave me a lots of tips how to travel in NYC!
    I so appreciate everything she has done for me, and looking forward to see her and her lovely family again soon!

    I stayed in the double bed room for 2 weeks and have nothing but good things to say about my stay. Eva showed me around the town my first day there, and was helpful in finding out everything I needed to know about the area. She was always happy to chat, while never intruding on my privacy. She allowed me use of her kitchen and let me keep leftovers in the fridge. Her home is on a lovely property with a beautiful garden and sitting area in the back which is beautiful in the summer. Her house is less than a 15 minute walk away from the white plains train stop, which is steps from downtown white plains. If you're looking for a place to stay in the area, you will find nowhere better than here!

    I stayed ten days at Eva's home, it has been a wonderful experience. Her family was very nice to me, and always cared if everything was fine. The first days, Eva helped me to discover White Plains and gave me all the information to know, about the means of transportation and to visit Manhattan. Her home is clean and well-organized, with a nice garden. Moreover, Eva is a very welcoming and interesting person, with whom it is a pleasure to discuss on very kind of subject. So if you plan a trip to New York, I warmly recommend Eva, who is great host and very interested in what she is doing.
