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.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We are an Australian couple (retired lawyer and teacher) and we had just completed a 28 day Princess cruise firstly in the Baltic, then up to Iceland and then trans-Atlantic after visits to Glasgow, Belfast and Cork.

The location of this apartment, very close to Central Park with proximity to the Subway and 3 museums, as well as the pleasant walks up and down 5th Ave and Madison Ave, made staying here for us more attractive to us than "downtown" hotels/apartments.
We sampled local restaurants, e.g. Serafinas and convenience stores (we often prefer to 'eat in' ) and found them to be more than adequate.

The building itself was, as it looks, attractive and secure. The apartment (ours was the Deluxe Balcony) was comfortable (especially the bed), reasonably appointed, though in some respects it could do with an update, the wi-fi worked very well, our host Julia was pleasant, responsive and helpful and the housekeeping/washing service provided was very good.
We very much enjoyed our 8 night stay in New York and a big part of that was the great location. Yes we would stay here again.

We stayed at the balcony suite. Julia and the staff are very nice. We couldn't open the balcony. The furniture is too old, the wood floors are too noisy and we found a roach

The Perfect NYC Experience

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in Julia and Claudio’s Deluxe Balcony Suite. We are a family of 4 (2 parents and two young adult children, ages 17 and 20). We found the flat to be comfortable and quiet with wonderful amenities. We especially like the free wi-fi, daily housekeeping and full kitchen. The apartment is in a fantastic location with Central Park at the end of the block, the 4,5,6 Subway station just a few blocks away, convenient to a super market and plenty of restaurants of all types within a reasonable radius of the flat. We easily walked or took the subway everywhere. We visited many museums, sights, and neighborhoods all over Manhattan. It made for such an authentic New York City experience.

Julia and Claudio are wonderful hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and provided any and all information needed for an enjoyable stay. The apartment, and entire property is wonderfully maintained. We highly recommend a stay here. We could not have been happier about our choice of accommodation. It made for a perfect way for our family of four to enjoy a memorable week in New York City.

Fifth Avenue Townhouse New York Review

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Julia and Claudio’s Fifth Avenue Townhouse for 12 days this April. We are a professional couple from Australia who expect high standards of accommodation when we travel and were very pleased with our experience in that regard in New York. The Townhouse is perfectly situated on the Upper East Side between Madison and Fifth Avenues, on the doorstep to Central Park and within 10 minutes walk of the major museums. The area has a very good selection of high end and affordable restaurants and cafes, and excellent shopping options on Madison Avenue. We stayed in the spacious and comfortable Deluxe Terrace Suite and made good use of the excellent cooking facilities when not dining out. We found Julia to be an excellent and very responsive host, and her willingness to provide information and answer questions from first time New York visitors prior to our trip was welcome and very helpful. We had a wonderful stay and our accommodation at the Fifth Avenue Townhouse was a big part of that. Our experience far exceeded what we could have expected from a hotel, and we will certainly stay with Julia and Claudio on our next visit to New York (which we are already planning!)
