Interaction with Guests

All interaction is by emails, phone or texts. I am very quick to respond and make you feel at home. I have a team on site to solve any issues that may arise.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is safe, family friendly, and full of amenities such as yoga studios, gyms, restaurants, organic grocers, jazz clubs, bike rentals and more. Close to Columbia University, subways (1, B, C lines), Central Park, swimming pools, skating rinks and more. It's a vibrant community full of Columbia professors, students, families, professionals and artists.

There is street parking although it is high maintenance in that 4 times a week you have to move your car for street cleaning. There are garages nearby.

It is just 2 blocks from the 1, B and C trains. As it's in Manhattan, it's very easy to get around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

With our family (5 persons in total) we had a fantastic stay in the appartment of Athena. It was quiet situated and comfortable. The shower was great and as a surprise one of the beds was changed during our stay for a very comfortable one. It was only 5 minutes walk to the nearest metro station and around the corner there are nice restaurants, daily's etc. It is closely located to Harlem and we liked a visit to this part of New York a lot. Very lively and friendly atmosphere. Also de close location to the Central Park and musea was very convenient. To be short, I can recommend the appartment for an impressive visit to New York also in view of the price and quality.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Athena's rental was wonderful for our family vacation to New York. The location was great! It was very close to central park and public transportation. In addition an uber or lyft ride to tourist attractions was very reasonable. The apartment was clean upon arrival and Athena was very professional and helpful when questions came up. She left a very helpful binder of information at the apartment that was a great resource! We would highly recommend this rental if you are looking for a nice place to stay. We had a group of six adults that slept comfortably there.

A very enjoyable stay, with lots of local facilities

  • 4 of 5

Lots of shops, cafes, restaurants in walking distance. Subway station and buses nearby. A friendly residential neighbourhood, quieter than we had expected. Athena had a range of books about New York to consult and helpful information about shops, restaurants etc.

Definitely a good place to rent.

very good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a very good place to stay for 2 adults (grandmothers visiting a grand baby). Everything was absolutely as described, very clean and well supplied. The only thing missing was paper towels which would be handy in the kitchen. Athena was very responsive and I will definitely consider her apartment for future visits.
