vacation rental description

This unique apartment was designed by a renowned Manhattan architect as a primary residence, and is located on the 2nd floor.

The rental is a fully furnished one bedroom apartment space within owner’s apartment. You will have full privacy as the owners will not enter your space during your stay. The kitchen is in this section of the apartment so you will have a private kitchen with dishwasher (we do not use the kitchen or go into your space at all during your stay), your own marble bathroom with jacuzzi, living room space with wood burning fireplace (great for a romantic winter night in Manhattan), and balcony facing the street. There is a queen-size loft bed in bedroom and a desk, and two more loft beds in the living room (one queen & one king). This allows for six (maybe 7 with child) guests to sleep comfortably without opening the couch and losing floor space. There is a t.V. With basic cable, DVDs to borrow at no charge, and WiFi internet. Also, there is a laundry room in the building.

This apartment is located in a townhouse on a quiet, tree-lined, dead-end street, and historic landmark block. Our neighborhood is extremely safe and family oriented. We are right by riverside park and a fantastic pier that extends into the Hudson river. There is an outdoor restaurant and free activities in the summer such as canoeing, movies on a big screen out doors and dancing at night. We are also three blocks from central park, and two blocks from express subway stop. We are one train stop to times square (5 minutes), and walking distance to Lincoln center.

There is absolutely no smoking in the apartment, but you are welcome to smoke on the balcony.

This rental is family run so you are assured a friendly greeting and very personable service. We also live in the apartment but only posted pictures of the section you will be staying in, and we will not be entering your area as you will have full privacy during your stay. The apartment is in our townhouse which is located in the heart of the upper west side in a primarily residential neighborhood. It serves as a great home base for visitors to new york city. The brownstone lined blocks and luxury apartment buildings make the upper west side well worth strolling around. Housing on the upper west side often offer a better value than in many other areas, and also provide visitors an escape from the chaos of midtown and other heavily tourist areas.

The apartment is walking distance to central park (enter at 72nd street beside the famous Dakota and strawberry fields), riverside park, Lincoln center, beacon theater, symphony space, children's museum of Manhattan, American museum of natural history, Hayden planetarium, Jewish museum, new york historical society and we are only two blocks from express subway stop the 1,2,3 trains, only 5 minutes to times square!

traveler reviews for this manhattan apartment rental

Absolutely Fabulous!

Review submitted: July 23, 2014   Date of arrival: July 16, 2014

We loved everything about the apartment and the neighborhood. Sylvia was a FABULOUS hostess, very accommodating and very "in touch" from the first inquiry until beyond check out. The apartment was PERFECT for our Ladies' Getaway. Beds were comfy, kitchen was very well stocked, apartment had all the comforts of home so no running out for shampoo or a cheese plane! Coffee was even there for us! LOVE LOVE LOVED the Balcony... we spent a ton more time just sitting around the apartment then we even planned! Thank you Sylvia, for a GREAT stay. Agree, not the perfect place for little kids, but bigger kids, teens, adults - all good!!!! (bigger kids and teens will LOVE the lofts!!! )

Pleased and Will Return!

Review submitted: July 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

Staying at this property was a great decision. It was :

-clean
-a great location
-equipped with iron, dishes, AC

It came with:

-an amazing patio experience
-comfortable beds
-tons of linens (towels and washcloths)

Sylvia is a landlord who's very accommodating, as she gave us quarters for laundry, and suggestions for local restaurants, and grocers.

My security deposit was promptly returned to me, the day of my departure (something I greatly appreciate, as this didn't happen with the last apartment I rented in NYC.)

I would recommend this apartment, and Sylvia, as a property manager. I plan on returning in September.

Great base to explore Manhattan

Review submitted: June 1, 2014   Date of arrival: May 19, 2014

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The beds are all logt style with quite steep stairs. I would not recommend this property unless you are able-bodied. I would also not recommend it for small children.
However, the four of us had a comfortable stay. We were grateful to be able to wash our clothes there and the apartment was fully equipped with everything you could need.
The location is great. Walking distance to the subway and Central Park and with some shops and restaurants conveniently close by. It is also a quiet street which is a relief after the more frenzied areas of Manhattan.
The only downsides were poor ventilation in the bathroom (which wouldn't be a problem if you can shower with the bathroom door open). We also found it a little stuffy inside but we didn't want to leave the balcony door open while sleeping. The aircon was ok but not great.
All in all, I would recommend this apartment and would probably stay there again. The host was very helpful and it met all of our needs.

Recommended for: families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car
