Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 7, 2014
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1-1/2 Baths (Sleeps 3-5)

Full-service kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. Full Bath + 1/2 bath. Sunken Art Deco living room with parquet floors and high ceilings. View and use of a private garden patio, a large Cable TV, and WiFi Internet.

Tasteful Italian-style living. Close to subways and buses, one block from Central Park, and 3 blocks from Riverside Park. On the Gold Coast of the Upper West Side. Very conveniently located near a supermarket and several gourmet stores, plenty of very good restaurants, and lots of shopping.

Nearby: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Columbia University, Museum of Natural History. Very near subways and bus stations that can take you all over Manhattan–and make you feel like you are a real New Yorker!

Two of the bedrooms are below the ground level and have windows looking up onto the patio. Smoking is not permitted in the apt. You may step outside to the patio if you must smoke.

I live on the 4th floor. The place is very quiet and, at times, it feels like you're in the country–especially in the warm months, when you can enjoy sitting in the backyard.

For insurance/safety reasons, children must be at least 10 years old. No pets are permitted.

Pleasant and convenient

  • 4 of 5
This 2 floor apartment was wonderfully located, close to Central Park, the A and C subway lines, and restaurants and grocery stores in the Upper West side. We were two adults and three teenagers and it worked for us. It was relatively cool even in July - we tended not to use the air conditioning. It was well-equipped, and Livia was very pleasant and accommodating. It was a big plus having the patio out back, giving us much more space and a bit of sky.

Hot, hot, hot New York Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My husband, daughter, grandson and his friend stayed in this Townhouse for 5 very hot nights in July. The only reason I rated this "Good" instead of "Excellent" was that two the window air conditioners in the unit were not sufficient to keep a comfortable temperature.

There is only one tiny air conditioner assigned to the entire first floor (living room, den, kitchen and bathroom) and it was never really comfortable. My daughter and the two boys slept on that level. Fortunately, we were able to borrow 2 small fans from friends that live in the area to help them get through the hot nights.

The bigger air conditioner is in the downstairs bedroom but is not sufficient to cool the 2nd bedroom. We could only use it as storage as it did not have an air conditioner at all. I would not recommend staying there when it is hot but, I believe it would be fine in better weather.

The townhouse was spacious and pretty well equipped. We really enjoyed our breakfasts and evening drinks in the quiet, private garden area. What a treat that is to find in Manhattan!

The location is a little farther north than I would have liked but still pretty convenient. There is a 24-7 Duane Reed next door which was very nice. The B-C station is only a block away but the 1-2-3 station was a longer trek. It would have been ok but, again, it was SO HOT while we were there!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This jewel of an apartment stole my heart (and that isn't easy). It is perfectly located - one block from the subway, steps from Columbus Avenue, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, etc. A few steps in the other direction and you are in Central Park. It was immaculately clean and spacious. The little patio was a pleasant extra - not easy to find in rentals in NYC. One thing that worries me when I travel is the mattress and I slept very well. No complaints here. We even slept with the windows open and did not hear any noise since the apartment is in the back. Livia was so nice and available immediately when needed. I do plan to travel to NYC more often and this apartment will be my perfect resting spot.

Ideal Upper West Side Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I just took our 17 yr old son to NYC for Spring Break. There is so much to love about this rental property - the proximity to the subway, central park and restaurant/coffee shops, ground floor location (thank goodness not another 3rd story walk up) and the outdoor garden. Apartment was very clean and spacious (our largest VRBO rental in NYC to date) located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Livia was very informative and helpful, plus the apartment has lots of reference material on NYC (attractions, restaurants, etc.). We loved relaxing in the living room after a long day of tours and museums and before heading out again to the theatre. We would highly recommend this rental property.

Terrific Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week with our three teenage boys. The weather was perfect which allowed us to explore so many areas of Manhattan. Livia was easy to work with and quickly earned our trust… everything worked out great.

This is a great location… in a nice, quiet neighborhood with lots of little gems to explore. It’s within walking distance to the Museum of Natural History and the East Side museums, a great location to experience Central Park and very good access to the subway and all of Manhattan.

The apartment is not fancy, but it is well appointed, clean and comfortable and feels like home very quickly. I am partial to some of the little things like a shower; it has an excellent one. The kitchen could use a little more space, but is adequate to prepare a simple breakfast. We did not use the patio (as it was November), but I could see it being a nice addition in the warmer months. It is super quiet and a great respite after a busy day/evening on the town; and allows for a good night sleep.

Try and find your own neighborhood gems. If you are travelling with kids Bella Luna (a block down on Columbus) has some nice $10 pasta dishes. If you need to get away from the kids you can leave them at home or send them off and belly up for a $5 house red that is actually pretty decent and a good pour from the bartender. They also have live music on Tuesday, we listened to Tin Can, a nice jazz/folk trio. For a great New York experience, try Barney Greengrass on Amsterdam at 86th for smoked fish with scrambled eggs. It’s really busy, so don’t be put out if they make you wait on the street for a table; they do that with everyone. If you are there for Thanksgiving do the balloon blow up the day before the parade.

I would highly recommend this home. Probably better for three or four than five, but we made it work.

Great location in a quiet neighbourhood!

  • 4 of 5
I visited New York for a week with my parents, and we stayed in this apartment. It is a great location, close to two subway stations with access to different routes. One block from Central Park, and because it is in a residential neighbourhood, it is very quiet - it was great to come back to a peaceful place after a day of Manhattan crowds! There are several great restaurants in the area, including a great Trattoria around the corner, and a small supermarket that sells everything you would need!

Livia is very friendly and helpful, and she lives in the same building, so it's nice to know she is there if you have any difficulties.

The only downside is that the smaller downstairs bedroom does not have a door, just a curtain, as does the bathroom in the main bedroom downstairs - it is curtained off, rather than being a separate bathroom. However, the apartment is clean and comfortable, and I would recommend it to anyone.
