Excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely pleased with the apartment. The listing description was very accurate. Everything was very well maintained and attractive. The location is superb. It's close to many excellent restaurants, theatre district, Columbus Circle, Rockefeller Center, etc. We prepared several meals and so enjoyed the patio and large kitchen for our adult family of seven. We'd love to go back.

Perfect house for 6 people

  • 4 of 5
The house itself and the location is spot on. One of the bedrooms have no window and feels a bit shut off. The living room offers space for 6 persons but we were 8.
All in all a house we would rent again if we were 6 but not ifwe were 8.

A Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was a wonderful find and the property manager, Lisa Grossman, was exceptional to work with. Lisa helped us out at the very last minute when another apartment hoax (also on homeaway) left us stranded with no place to stay. She re-arranged her day to accommodate us and was very communicative. This is important because some of the properties and their managers are not! Once in the apartment, we were overwhelmed with how nice it was and how spacious. The pictures do this place justice. We also had perfect weather and were able to thoroughly enjoy the back yard deck—a real bonus in mid-town. The neighborhood has a ton of restaurants and bars and the location is ideal for getting to just about any of the major destinations. We would rent this place again without hesitation. Just a perfect weekend!

Fabulous location and beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property was wonderful. Myself, five year old son, my sister, all from Australia, and a friend from London enjoyed a week here. The apartment is spacious, clean, well supplied with bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. The welcome email supplied all information needed to use facilities, and access to the apartment was easy. The apartment feels very safe and secure and as all women and one small child we had NO issues with feeling secure. Great location, and easy walking distance to Times Square, theatres, restaurants, Madison Ave, Rockefeller Centre etc. We really enjoyed the time here, and was lovely to feel 'at home'. Highly recommended - property has four large double bedrooms and could easily suit couples or families.

Awesome Apartment Rental, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
Property was clean and tidy upon arrival. There was plenty of everything, towels, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, hangers in armoires...the kitchen was bright, lovely, and clean with plenty of seating. The bedrooms were spacious and clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were nicely appointed and had plenty of storage space for unpacking your things. The location was perfect! Lots of wonderful restaurants within walking distance, walking distance to Broadway theaters, Rockefeller Center, Central Park and all places in between. We would definitely recommend this apartment to families and couples traveling together. We will rent here again, ourselves. Hopefully, in the near future! Thanks for a pleasant stay in the wonderful city of New York!
