The most wonderful and enjoyable New York stay.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two energetic boys from Brisbane, Australia were looking for an apartment that would provide a great base for our holiday in Manhattan. We were looking for an elegant and spacious property that would allow us to feel comfortable and not live on top of each other like in a hotel room. From the very beginning I was impressed with Julia and her willingness to help. The welcome was inviting and made us feel at ease. After travelling for almost two weeks prior to arrival the suitcase had accumulated some clothing in desperate need of a wash and within 24 hours our clothes were washed, folded and sitting on our bed upon our return from a day out.

The first night was spent at the baseball out in Queens and Julia arranged a town car to pick us up after the game which was great with a tired family wanting to get home.

Like all other accommodation there are some table stakes that are just crucial to a good experience. This starts with the hospitality of the host and the appearance of the apartment which both were fantastic. Then for the two kids the Wi-Fi was fast and consistent, and for me and the world cup being on and hot summer days we needed a great tv and an air conditioner to spend some down time after a long day of playing in central park. However, the most important aspect of a good holiday is a happy wife and that means shopping. The location is just terrific with a short stroll to central park and a neighbourhood of cafes, restaurants and shops. The proximity to Madison avenue is great and the boutiques went on for miles.

However, two things stand out for us on our holidays and in this case both were big ticks. The beds were large and very comfortable and the showers were hot and strong.

We went to Boston for a few days and were able to leave our suitcases in storage here which was very convenient.

All in all i highly recommend this accommodation. We stayed in both the balcony suite and the terrace suite and both were of excellent quality. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place to stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5
We spent four nights at the Grande White Loft and couldn't have had a better time. Julia and Claudio, the owners were very personable, made us feel at home and went out of their way to ensure that all our needs were met. They were always available and gave us great suggestions for restaurants, activities and attractions in the area. The apartment was spacious and in great condition. TV, cable, appliances and WiFi worked perfect. Housekeepers did an excellent job. The location is unbeatable, just a short walk from Central park and many shops. We travel often and felt this stay was better than what we have experienced in many high end hotels. My entire family loved the place and can't wait to be back. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to NYC.

My wife and I travel frequently both in the United States as well as Europe and typically we stay at high end resorts and hotels. Our stay with Julia and Claudio was wonderful and matched all of our expectations with regard to the type of accommodations that we like. First, the neighborhood. When staying in New York, our preferred location is the Upper East Side and Julia's townhouse was perfect. It is 1/2 block from Central Park, 1/2 block from Madison Avenue, and two blocks away from the nearest subway. It is situated perfectly. From a restaurant perspective, the townhouse is surrounded by multiple establishments where every taste preference can be satisfied as well as every price range. During our stay, we were booked into the Deluxe Balcony Suite and we couldn't have been happier. The suite was large and expansive and well decorated. The convenience of having a kitchen available in the suite was invaluable for us in making coffee and having items to snack on during our stay. The actual suite matched the photos exactly (which is not always the case in many hotels, etc.) so there were no unfortunate surprises in that regard. The daily maid service was quiet, unobtrusive, and very good. Yulia, the housekeeper is wonderful! The ability to come and go on our time schedule and have a nice, roomy apartment to come home to was exactly what we were expecting and Julia fulfilled all of our wishes. I would highly recommend Julia's rentals to anyone who is coming to New York and wants to live like a New Yorker! We had a great experience and we will definitely be back!

Peaceful, elegant accomodation in perfect UES spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 year old daughter and I live in London and stayed in one of the apartments in Julia and Claudio’s townhouse for over two weeks this autumn. It was a perfect choice in every respect: great location steps from Central Park; cafes and shopping on Madison Avenue, and child friendly restaurants on nearby Lexington and 3rd Avenue. Most importantly, despite the central location, the townhouse located on a lovely tree lined street was also incredibly peaceful and quiet. The apartment was well equipped, clean and bright with daily inclusive cleaning and laundry service. Furthermore the hosts were extremely responsive to any request or question no matter how small but they were equally unobtrusive. We were able to receive shipments to the apartment in advance and during our stay which was extremely helpful. And as parents, we appreciated that the hosts set up a crib and provided some toddler furniture for use during our stay. If you are looking for a peaceful, spacious and elegant accommodation in a quintessential Upper East Side location that offers warm and responsive service in addition to kitchen and living space, this is the perfect choice.

Spacious, light and bright.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have both lived in New york, and now visit the city frequently.
We prefer to stay in apartments rather than hotels. We were fortunate this trip to have found this 5th Avenue townhouse. We spent 5 nights in the Deluxe Balcony Suite. The location is terrific, safe, wonderful neighborhood and within walking distance of many New York attractions. We loved coming home to the spacious and very comfortable apartment and waking up to a bright, lovely view of the garden and ivy covered wall.

Julia and Claudio could not have been more gracious, and we will definately stay here again.

Just what the doctors ordered!

  • 5 of 5
We are husband/wife doctors who took some time away from our practice and brought our two youngest children, ages 15 and 7, to NYC for a short holiday. This townhouse suited us perfectly. We stayed in the Deluxe Balcony Suite, which was elegantly appointed and supplied every amenity one might need. The bedroom was comfortable with lots of closet space. The living area provided two chairs which folded out into twin beds; just perfect for the kids. The home was surprisingly quiet for being so centrally located and we all slept very well.
The owners, Julia and Claudio, were wonderful hosts. Julia offered to shop for groceries for us prior to our arrival, and went out of her way to give us advice on restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. Housekeeper Yulia did a great job keeping our space impeccably clean. Daily cleaning was included, and there were no additional taxes/fees/charges at checkout. The booking process was straightforward and painless. Responses to questions before arrival and during our stay were immediately answered by Julia. She even arranged a car to transport us to the airport upon departure. By choosing this suite, we had everything we might usually expect at a hotel, but with so much more, and at no additional charge.
This home is wonderfully located. It is steps away from Central Park and world-reknowned museums, and provides easy access to subway and tour bus stops. There are numerous upscale shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
We wholeheartedly recommend this townhouse, and look forward to spending time here again the next time we visit the city.
Thank you Julia and Claudio!
