Guest Access

You rent the full apartment to yourselves. No one else has access except for me or the super for emergencies or if a repair needs to be done.

Interaction with Guests

I live 1 block away and typically check in tenants myself. I can be there in 5 minutes if there is any issue.

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.

Getting around

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.

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.

Our stay was very nice. The apartment is nice and clean. Smaller than it looks in the pictures. Plenty of room our party of 3. Neighbors are friendly.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the apartment very much. We were five people - four people slept in the two separate bedrooms and one in the living room. The bathroom and kitchen were very nice and everything worked as it should. However, the living room was a bit smaller than what it seemed to be on the pictures and the sofa bed in here was not that comfortable.

The location is good with supermarkets and delis nearby as well as the metro station, so it was quick and easy to get to downtown Manhattan.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad the apartment was comfortable and that you enjoyed the central location. This is the first time I have heard that the sofa is not comfortable. There is also a self-inflatable mattress which past tenants have used instead of the couch for sleeping on. If I hear more negative feedback on the couch I will definitely replace it. Most tenants say the apartment appears bigger than the photos but I agree it's not a large living room. Thanks for the feedback and you are welcome back anytime.

Excellent Apartment in NYC

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at Athena's place. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and clean, just as described and featured in the pictures. Also, Athena was a wonderful host; very responsive and accommodating, which we really appreciated.

We would definitely like to stay in her apartment when we come back to NYC.

Thanks Athena!
