Awesome Garden Apt Next to Central Park (sleeps 4)


Property Details

Updated: Dec 13, 2014
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This charming one bedroom has received rave reviews from renters in the first years of being on the rental market. It is not only located half a block from Central Park on a beautiful, tree-canopied street on the Upper West also has its own private and spaceous backyard garden!

A perfect romantic getaway, this apartment is also great for business trips and vacations to NYC for up to 4 people, even in winter. Available for long weekends or weekly rentals only.

This NON-smoking apartment has a 42' HD flat screen tv with expanded cable, air conditioning, high speed internet access, recessed lighting with dimmers, nice furniture, full-equipped kitchen, hardwood floors, queen-size bed in the bedroom, plus a futon foldout (double). Linens are provided as well.

Make your reservation now... as you probably have discovered that it is rare to find a quality apartment in a great neighborhood with private outdoor space in NYC.

When you respond make sure to include your phone number and I will get right back to you.

I also have plenty of reviews that I can provide, if needed.

About the Owner

I live this apartment half the time, so it is kept up very well. I am gone about half the time to my home in Cape May... and so I share it with others who want to come and enjoy NYC at its best.

I have stayed at this apartment a couple of times over the past few years, and every time I do I find more and more to love about the location, and apartment itself! The location to the park is unbeatable and I always arrive to the apartment in impeccable condition. Ron has truly gone out of his way to accommodate my needs. Thank you Ron… Can't wait to stay again soon!

Great Spot Close to Everything including Central Park

Hi, I have stayed here twice in the past year and just read that review from Bruce, I guess where he's from where they don't have seasons, because the gardens tend to die down in the fall and winter here on the east coast. Must be just a cranky man. Anyway, I like this apartment because of the location and the back terrace. It's nice to have nature surrounding you in the worlds most famous city. I stayed once in the summer and the flowers were very nice and again in the winter and while there was no life in the garden it was nice to still look out at the snow. I like the large flat screen tv and the bed is very comfortable as well. I have always found this apartment clean and never had a bad experience with that. Great Safe Neighborhood with tree lined street. Its Great. Thank you.

We arrived and there was no one there to let us in. Finally the housekeeper showed up. The front of the apartment entrance was full of trash and it looked like a slum.

Inside it was apparent that there was mold in the apartment due to the smell. The garden was in shambles and unkempt area the awning over the uncovered outdoor furniture was torn and full of mold. There was no way that this garden area was usable.

The pictures on line looked very nice and they were not near reality. What a disappointment! We were looking forward to this visit as it appeared to be a lovely apartment in a very good area near Central Park - but it was not. It was no where near what the listing reported on the VRBO website..

The apartment was not habitable and we immediately left.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this guest did not have a good experience. I rent every week and have constantly wonderful reviews and returns for future stays. In this case, I think the renter must have been unhappy that the housekeeper situation started things off on an awkward foot. I am afraid that she got word of the death of her father the night before... and she may have been late and not had things fully in the shape they are used to.

However, the apartment is clean and looks just like the picture of the house. I live there half the time. I know. Finally, the garden does not look the same in October that it does in the full bloom of spring (which is when the picture was taken).

I am sorry that this was not the experience that this guest would have liked... but I am grateful that so many others have been very happy. I simply don't ask them to write a review... though all of the others have been 5 stars. Thanks for the understanding on this one.

Perfect location

The apartment exceed our expectations from a location point of view. There were three adults and one teenager in our group and while the apartment was small we made it work. Ron and his housekeeper were incredibly helpful in accommodating our very late and early arrivals for our two stays. We enjoyed a midnight meal when we arrived from NZ in The Diner on Broadway and visited the awesome Barzini's next door every day of our stay. We loved New York and are already planning a visit in 2015. Thanks Ron.

Great Location

Thanks for the great stay at your apartment! I came with my 14 yr. old daughter and her friend. The location of the apartment was perfect for getting to the museums and walking Central Park. Also it was extremely easy to get a cab to anywhere in town on a nearby cross street. The neighborhood is super safe and clean.The patio behind was like a secret garden. Ron was just a phone call away when I had any questions and was helpful and flexible with us leaving our luggage after check out to enjoy a bit more time in my favorite city! Thanks again!

Great stay in NYC

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful apartment. My sister and I brought our 8 year olds to NY for their first trip and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The restaurant recommendations were great and everything you need is close by the apartment.

From the Owner

The location is convenient to everything. Close to subways, close to shops and restaurants and the world-famous Central Park is just half a block away!

With the unique opportunity of a back yard in NYC, I have created a private seating area to get away from the busy streets and activity in NYC. Just steps away is a grocery, drug store, cleaners and everything else you would need to make your stay amazing!
