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

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.

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.

Great location, nice apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment, exactly a described. Great location, very easy to get to the subway just a few minutes walk. The apartment was very clean and had all the amenities you could need. Athena was very responsive with all communication. Works for 4 adults but would accommodate 6 with the futon in the living room(just make sure you get along well). Would definitely recommend this apartment.

Fantastic Apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

have always stayed in hotels before so booking an apartment is a new thing. However I need not have worried as the whole process was easy to organise and the apartment was fantastic. Lots of room for my mum and me on a weeks holiday and had everything we needed. Thanks Anthea for making the whole process so easy, I will certainly be looking to book again on my next visit

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.
