Guestbook comments from the owner


So sorry it has taken us so long to write. This has been an especially busy summer with lots of out of town trips and out of town company. Needless to say we have told everyone about our delightful vacation in New York, one highlight of which was staying in the apartment we rented from you June7-11. The location was ideal. The breakfast items in the refrigerator made us feel so welcome. We enjoyed it so much that we have recommended it to others and hope to repeat the trip one day and stay again.

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time staying in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and it was perfect! The location is perfect: a few steps from the park, a few blocks from the subway, wonderful restaurants nearby. You can walk to the Plaza hotel, to the Frick Museum and to the MET. The bed is super comfortable (love the sheets!) and the kitchen has everything you need to whip up a breakfast or heat up leftovers from one of the many restaurants in the area. The owner was so very kind. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a relaxing and convenient NYC apartment.

Luxurious Apt Steps to Central Park & The Met
Upper East Side Manhattan

Well located, safe, clean, good for 1 or 2 persons

  • 4 of 5
A pleasant, simple, well-equipped, clean studio apartment. Vir is a pro and follows through. Apartment is about 500 feet from the “Student’s Gate”, the nearest entrance to Central Park. Located in the Upper East Side, an area of wealth and privilege, I always felt safe. The apartment faces 66th St., one of four transverse roads that cross the Park. As a result, there is quite a bit of rush hour traffic and taxis communicating via car horn. The immediate area, within about three blocks, is almost exclusively residential, therefore there are few restaurants and no grocery stores. Beyond that range there is plenty to choose from. This is in the heart of museum mile, one-quarter block from Fifth Avenue, located almost equidistant from the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (the Whitney, Freer, Guggenheim are even closer). Such close access to the museums and the Park make the apartment a great choice for people with these interests. Central Park was active, fun and felt safe, the apartment is near the southern end where the zoo is. Pleasantly decorated single living/sleeping room, small but well-equipped kitchen, bath has a large tub and a high shower with lots of hot water, view of 66th St/other buildings across the street. Comfortable bed is about twenty inches high (so it’s low). Vir had the AC put in earlier than usual per my request, it cooled the apartment but was not especially quiet. Fourth floor unit, elevator never failed. Some issues with requested 1 PM check out but Vir made it work. Recommend this apartment, especially for one or two people.

Hemos pasado una semana inolvidable, y el departamento nos ha brindado todas las comodidades para disfrutar de la ciudad al máximo. Nos hemos alojado con nuestro hijo de un año, y Vir ha atendido cada una de nuestras necesidades para que todo estuviera a nuestro alcance.

Blessed to stay here

  • 5 of 5
I was so blessed to stay here with my husband in March 2014. It is a very safe area & extremely convenient to the Museums, shopping & close to transport. The apartment was clean & warm (necessary for the freezing outside temperatures). Also the apartment was decorated beautifully by someone with an artistic eye which made you feel at home the moment you walk in the door.
Vir was very welcoming after a 33 hour flight & transfers from Sydney-Australia. He had the apt. warm, ready & waiting for us when he said he would be with kind words of New York hospitality. He made sure we had everything we needed. Vir also had the necessities in the cupboard & fridge so that we had food for breakfast & able to have a nice cup of tea/coffee after our long journey. The bed was very comfortable with quality sheets & towels. The kitchen is small but all we needed. Didn't use the dishwasher, just washed by hand. Great having a lift in the building.
I was actually very sick from day 4 of my 3 week holiday & was very thankful for CityMD on 69th St, it was efficient, hygienic, excellent medical staff with only a 5 minute wait (a great one for your occupants information book Vir). I spent 90% of my time in the apartment because of this. Blessed & thankful for such a central, warm & comfortable apartment.
The very best recommendation i can give is that if I return to New York, then i would stay at Vir's apartment again.

An excellent long weekend in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We rented the apartment for a long weekend in New York, and it did not disappoint. The location was perfect, the owner was friendly and accommodating, and the apartment itself was just right - comfortable, clean, and a great place to return to after a busy day. Highly recommended.

Another Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
In mid-November we stayed for the second time at this location and will continue to book this whenever we are visiting the city to see our daughter who is at school nearby. It is a tremendous location, a very safe neighborhood, a very comfortable, clean, well-appointed apartment and an extremely accommodating, reliable, helpful and accommodating landlord. Having stayed in several VRBO units now, I can't stress enough how important the latter is to us. The quality of service you get makes ALL the difference in VRBO rentals and Vir clearly takes his role as landlord seriously. Obviously, you can't expect hotel-esque service, but Vir more than covers all his bases, assuming you realize what you are getting into with a rental of this kind. Unless you are looking for a Plaza-like experience, you will not be disappointed staying here.
