We had a fantastic time at David’s lovely upper west side apartment where we spent 10 days celebrating Richard’s 50th birthday. We had the pleasure of meeting David and his friend Mike when they arrived in Glasgow the day before our trip and were delighted to be able to have a meal with them before we left. David’s flat is in a great location, minutes from a subway stop and an easy walk across to Central Park. He kindly left me his bike to use which meant I could explore the park at my leisure - a really fantastic way to see it. Plenty of grocery stores, restaurants etc all around the apartment and the apartment block feels very safe. We loved the beautiful tiled floors in the corridor. We both took advantage of the huge rolltop bath which was just perfect after a days walking in the city. David is easy going, friendly and a great communicator and I would heartily recommend swapping with him.

I exchanged my apartment in Barcelona with David in NYC. David is a wonderful, friendly guy, responsible and easy to deal with. The apartment is big and very comfortable. This is in a quiet area, yet well connected with the city. A 10 min. walk from Central Park and Riverside Park. David has lent me his bike and I moved through the parks and the city with her. The feeling of freedom has been extraordinary. 100% Reconmendable

We stayed in David's place for 2 weeks and we very enjoyed our time. His apartment is lovely and David is a very nice person. The swap was very easy because David makes everything he can do to make things being easy. It was a very good experience. Thank you David.

We traded our Vancouver condo with David for two weeks. We had corresponded and skyped with David before the trade and David met us on our arrival at his apartment. His apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. It is very clean and well arranged. The apartment is very close to the subway and made it super easy to go anywhere in the city. David was very helpful and easy to deal with, and treated our place like his own during our exchange. This was our first trade and it was a very good experience.

We stayed at David's place for 8 days in March 2016 and had an amazing time. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. It is close to subway making it easy to get anywhere. There are lots of restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores in the area. We had fun exploring another area of NYC. David was extremely organized and easy to deal with. We would highly recommend his place.

We spent four wonderful days at David's in May. First of all, you feel at ease in the apartment as soon as you set foot in it, it is cozy but not small, extremely quiet, super super clean! The neighborhood is perfect: very lively, plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, gentrified but not too much, very safe. Subway is two blocks away, the 4 bus to bring you to the museums three blocks away. And, last but not least, David is a great host, very nice, accommodating, precise, reliable, and a real world traveler.

We stayed at David's flat for 10 days from 28 April to 8 May 2017.
The flat is perfectly located in Upper West Side (106th street with Broadway) at 1 minute walk from subway 1 line (which brings you downtown in only 20 minutes !) and at walking distance from Central Park. If you like to walk a bit you can reach, by walking, many other city attractions, as Guggenheim, National History and MET museums, Columbia University Campus and St John the Divine Church, Columbus Circus, Lincoln Center... New York is lovely to be walked !
The flat is nice, cozy and of course equiped with all you can need. Everything was PERFECTLY CLEAN.
David has been really nice with us from the very first exchange here on HATW. He gave us a small guide to the flat and the district (markets, restaurants...). Since the exchange wasn't simultaneous, he could be there to welcome us, give us the keys and show us the flat, and also the last day to recover the keys. He was really kind and accessible with us, always ready to help. We really appreciated our stay in his flat and hope that David will appreciate his stay in our Barcelona flat next summer.
