Oversized Vacation Accommodations For Families And Small Groups Seeking An Unforgettable Experience When Visiting New York City.

4 Large Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 2000 SQF /186 SQM

I own two almost identical apartments. To learn more, check availability and make reservations please visit my website at www.midtownflats.org

Midtown Flats is a centrally located townhouse comprising two separate oversized 4 bedroom apartments each with large living rooms, dining rooms and fully equipped kitchens. The properties cater to families and groups of friends looking for a midtown Manhattan location with all the comforts and amenities of home living.

The upper and a lower apartments are almost identical in their layout and furnishings and were completely gut renovated and modernized in 2013, everything is brand new from the bathrooms to the kitchen to the furniture. Each of the apartments is an oversized duplex and boasts approximately 2000 Square feet (186+ sq meters) of living space. Unlike most New York apartments each apartment is set up with generous common areas allowing your downtime to be a great social experience with friends and family. The apartments are a mix of old world charm and new contemporary flair, complimented by high ceilings, oversized windows, marble fire mantels and brick walls.

Each apartment features four generously sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each of the four bedrooms has comfy queen sized bed with brand new linens including down comforters with 100% high thread count cotton duvet covers and over flowing with pillows. The open living/dining/kitchen area has plenty of seating and a wall mounted plasma screen television. There is a separate dining area with a large table that can seat 8 comfortably. The kitchen is open format with a kitchen island with additional counter seating.

Each apartment has a laundry area with a washer & dryer, iron and ironing board as well as drying racks. All bathrooms have bathtubs and shower featuring tile walls and floors for a clean look and hygienic environment.

The apartments are professionally cleaned before your arrival and uncluttered.

ABOUT THE BUILDING

The building is a beautiful turn of the century old world townhouse that has been completely renovated and modernized in 2013. The building contains only two apartments, an upper apartment and a lower apartment. Each apartment has its own private gated entrance. There is no elevator within the building.

Because there are only two units located within the building this vacation rental is considered a legal rental. Make yourself aware of the rental laws in NYC. Beware as most apartment rentals in NYC are ILLEGAL since they are located within a larger building containing 3 apartment units or more. Because this apartment is located in a building with only two units it is a LEGAL vacatio

Roomy property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this place! We were four couples (the husbands were all brothers) traveling to the city to celebrate our anniversaries. The location of this property was perfect and within walking distance to so many of the sights that we wanted to see. It was also spacious enough that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other all the time. The bedrooms were incredibly large and there was plenty of seating for all 8 of us. At the end of the trip, everyone said they would definitely stay here again if we do another trip to NY.

Lisa was very responsive when we contacted her, and always responded within 24 hours. Prior to booking this location I had inquired at several other properties that met our requirements (4 bedrooms, minimum of 2 baths, location, etc). Lisa was the only one who responded to my inquiries. Others used automated email responses, but whenever I had a follow-up question I could never get a response - even if I called. Just adding this as a caution to others. If I hadn't been able to reserve this property with Lisa, I was considering a trip to NY just to confirm the validity of a property before booking...

A great property with a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
High-end VRBO in the Theatre District and within walking distance to many NYC tourist attractions with great subway access for those wanting to travel beyond.
All the bedrooms are spacious with hotel-quality linens. Plenty of hot water for those rotating showers and the bathroom design helps to maximize shower time.
The kitchen has high-end appliances in good working order and there is ample good quality cutlery and dishes for guests.
The large living/dining area has plenty of seating space.
As with all vacation properties some things may not suit all but Lisa is readily available to address any issues guests may have.
We had a fantastic time exploring exploring the sights, attending theatre and enjoying NYC from this great accommodation and would definitely rent it again if we are lucky enough to return to New York. Overall, a great property.

Fantastic property and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is of high quality and perfectly located near the theatre district. Our entire family of 8 adults from Australia stayed here for 8 days. The apartment is very clean, spacious, well appointed and maintained. All the transport, food and tourist attractions are easily accessible.
The arrangements were very professional and Lisa was a delight to work with.
I can thoroughly recommend this property. For us it was the perfect holiday and family get together.

Locaiton, Location, Location! Huge, Huge, Huge!

  • 5 of 5
Family trip, three generations, lots of room, nicely appointed, and the location cannot be beat (at this price). Not perfect, Lisa could pay a little more attention to the details. No tissues, furniture ready to fall apart, floor was dirty despite our dutifully removing shoes at the bottom of the stairs. But overall a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear that aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations. Your feedback is important to our improving our product offering and thank you for your comments. We rely on guests communicating to us (directly) when an item in the apartment needs to be fixed or replaced and we are always certain to immediately correct these issues. While we do supply all of the basics including laundry detergent, diswashing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. I am sorry to say we do not supply facial tissues.

Wonderful Apartment, excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at this lovely apartment. We rented it because of the location and were not at all disappointed. It is an easy walk to Broadway shows, Time Square, Central Park and the subways. The comfortable neighborhood is full of a variety of restaurants and shops. We felt safe walking at all hours.
The apartment is immaculate. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. There is some street noise as in any city, but we had no problem sleeping due to noise. The bedrooms are spacious. Living room had comfortable sofas. There was plenty of hot water for showers. All appliances were very clean and worked without any problems. The kitchen is fine for light cooking. WiFi worked great all through apartment.
Lisa was prompt and professional in responding to emails and concerns. I would stay here again and reccomend this apartment to family and friends.
