A Westside Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a wonderful Thanksgiving week in New York City, and this apartment was home base from Saturday to Saturday. It was a wonderful week in a magical city. I went to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in person, which was amazing. I loved it!!! ❤️❤️❤️

This was my second VRBO experience, and it was as amazing as my first which was in Barcelona.

Athena, the owner, was so professional and helpful throughout the process, responding to emails and questions in a timely manner. She provides clear instructions and details about the property and neighborhood. Her house rules are excellent, reasonable, and helped to ensure a good experience. As the trip drew near, she responded to my questions and inquiries and was so very helpful in letting me know about the nearby Westside Market, a 24-hour grocery store that had everything we needed for breakfast items and snacks.

The apartment is really lovely - very well kept, sparking clean, and well stocked with essentials. The photos are spot on. The apartment is long and narrow with one bedroom, the kitchen, and bath off the hallway and the living/dining room and larger bedroom at the back. Given it is NYC, it was spacious for 4 adults. There are two bedrooms with doors for privacy, a full bathroom and well-appointed kitchen with all you need. With two full beds and a futon, there were 3 sleeping spots. And there were air mattresses which we did not need. There are small closets and chests of drawers so you can unpack and store luggage in corners. Linens and towels are provided.

The neighborhood is lovely and quiet and residential. There are some nice restaurants in the area for a meal. Subway stops were convenient. We got the 7-day unlimited MTA pass. We mostly used the subway stop at 110th Street/Cathedral Parkway at Central Park West, which is about 4 blocks from the apartment, an easy walk. I walked the neighborhood alone early mornings and evenings and felt safe. I did not take a cab the entire week, just subways and walking.

We were 4 adults and comfortable. With two private bedrooms, this apartment would work well for 2 solo travelers OR 2 couples OR a couple with 1 or 2 kids.

I would highly recommend this rental! It is a great location from which to explore NYC which we did - and we did all the touristy stuff and did a Broadway show and the Rockettes. A great experience...a real gem on the Westside!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect solution to our need for some individual space, which you simply can not get from a hotel. Would certainly stay again! Thank you Athena-

NYC Upper West side

  • 3 of 5

Good location in neighbourhood with lots of choice for restaurants and good subway access to the rest of Manhattan. Bathroom linens could use refreshing and booking with this owner was the most complicated I've ever had to deal with, with demands for a lot of very personal information. Apartment was adequate for our needs and comfortable but noisy late at night, so not very restful.

Owner's Response: Yes, I have actually changed my booking procedure now to reflect this complaint. I was following the kind of information a hotel requests, but I understand that people feel uncomfortable since I'm not a corporation. Now I don't request any more personal info already provided through the booking platform. I just bought a bunch of new bathroom linens so I'm not sure what she is referring to but I will check again and make sure there aren't any stains on any of them. If it was noisy at night it must have been an exception as it's a quiet building and the apartment faces the courtyard. As you can see from my other reviews, people usually find these wonderful, clean and quiet.

A quiet haven in a busy city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 kids. It was a great place to come back to in the evening. We could relax safely here at the end of long sightseeing days. We had no problems and it was easy access to the subways. We love NYC!

Great location and super clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three kids and this apartment was a cozy, calm, cool haven in between our outings exploring NYC. We loved the proximity to the subway, great restaurants and the Cathedral of St John the Divine. This neighborhood is probably not a place we would have visited if we weren't staying there but we all enjoyed it.
