Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a very positive experience at Michelle's duplex. The apartment is very clean, nicely furnished and in a great location. We loved having the outdoor space. Michelle's partner met us exactly as scheduled and was extremely helpful. Overall, it was a great place to stay. We will definitely go back!!!

Warm and cozy, ideally situated.

The apartment at Central Park and Lincoln Center was exactly what we required and was as advertised. The place was clean, well maintained and all appliances worked. We were having difficulty finding a reasonably priced apartment for our short stay in early December. Although this apartment has a minimum stay of 30 days, we checked the availability calendar and found a window which might accommodate our stay.

I contacted Michelle and she agreed to rent us the apartment for our brief visit ( she even offered us a discount!). Dealing with Michelle was a pleasure. She simplified the whole transaction, guiding me through the internet process and over riding incorrect computer "form letter" responses.

Upon arrival, her partner Shamai was waiting as promised and again, the experience was pleasant, painless and professional. He gave us the run down of the apartment and the neighbourhood.

We had a terrific time in New York, starting with an evening in Central Park at Strawberry Fields and the 34th anniversary of John Lennon's passing (a block and a half from the apartment).

We plan to return to NYC and hope that this apartment is available.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this great apartment during our 10 day visit to NYC from Australia!
We loved the cosy yet spacious area for 3 adults and our 2 year old daughter.
Beds were comfortable, ample kitchen facilities and location very close to Central Park!
We were regulars on the Subway which is super close and overall awesome area away from the touristy hustle of Times Square.
Owners seemed very genuine and not a trouble dealing with any questions we had.
Would recommend this apartment to friends and family!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 4 of 5
Excellent place for our visit to NYC. Brought 3 of my friends with me to visit my daughter. Place is very roomy and exactly like the pictures. Little clangy of pipes but after our busy days and nights never bothered us. Would definitely love to stay here again!

What a stay! For seven days, three of us ladies from Texas enjoyed living like a New Yorker, enjoying our apartment so very much! It was clean, spacious and in the absolutely perfect location in NYC. We were close to everything we needed, from a Trader Jo's grocery store, to some super restaurants and Magnolia's Bakery (Yum) right around the corner. And close to several subway entrances (which we learned to navigate and use quite regularly). We felt safe and secure, slept great, (used the super comfortable futon in the living room for one of us) and just simply had a great stay. We were met on time and given means to communicate with the gracious owners if we needed...think we had to use it once or twice for small items not worth mentioning here...ie, the customer service was indeed good. We all three would easily recommend this property to a relative or friend, and stay there again if returning to NYC.

First Time in NYC. Perfect Place to Stay.

  • 5 of 5
We picked this property for a few reasons. It was close to public transportation, a few blocks from Central Park, overnight long term parking close by, and several restaurants within walking distance. This apartment met all our expectations.

We (3 adults) found the apartment to be just like described on the website. There was plenty of room for us. While the kitchen was small, it was loaded with everything we needed. We did find the ceiling low in the basement bedroom area. I am 5'3" and could touch the ceiling with my hand, but it was a large room with 2 queen beds and a dresser. It had new furniture throughout and as well as new bedding. We found the mattresses were comfortable. We brought a fan to use as a noise blocker, but we ran the dehumidifier in the bedroom during the day and night which worked well as a noise blocker as well as keeping the apartment comfortable. We found the apartment clean with fresh linens.

The owner was very easy to contact and met us upon arrival. Gave us information about where to park our car ahead of time, which was in a parking garage one street over. This made it easy to get our luggage to and from the apartment.

We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants and strolling through the park. We found the metro was within 2 blocks from the apartment which made getting around the city very easy.

We will definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends. We'll rent again next time we are in NYC.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
The location was fantastic - so close to Central Park and two subway stations. The listing description and photos were completely accurate. I was so impressed by the size of the apartment - I have never before had such a comfortable stay in NYC. Everything was perfectly clean, and the owner/manager was perfectly friendly and responsive. I would rent this property again - in fact I would do my best to plan future trips around the availability of this property!
If you enjoy healthy food, the Trader Joes on Broadway is convenient and Maoz is great! Also, we really enjoyed the Museum of Art and Design, on Columbus Circle.

THE LOCATION:

The Upper West Side serves as a great home base for visitors looking for an authentic New York City experience. Primarily a residential neighborhood, it provides an escape from the chaos of Midtown and other heavily touristed areas. The area is famous for lovely tree-lined streets and brownstone buildings, many of which are landmarks. Elegant pre-war buildings line Broadway, Central Park West, Riverside Drive, and West End Avenue.

It is a great neighborhood for shopping, especially at gourmet stores, like Zabar's and Fairway and is a train hop away from the shops at Columbus Circle.

The restaurant offerings in the area are plentiful. Enjoy tea and a sandwich at the charming Alice's Tea Cup and don't miss the heavenly banana pudding around the corner at Magnolia Bakery!
