It was the nicest homestay I’ve ever been. So cozy and clean. And Ms. Eva is so kind. I enjoyed the White Plains because of her specific explanation. If I come to the White plains again, I’ll be with Ms Eva’s house.
Eva is a kind, heartwarming lady. She always asked me how my day was and helped me out when I had questions. I highly recommend staying with her!
Btw. You can find her on Airbnb where you don't have to pay the Homestay tax ;)
CLean, cozy and warm. Eva is very kind and accomodating.
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 is extremely welcoming and really makes you feel like you're at home. I would happily stay with her and her family again.
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.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
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!
