It is a nice house in a good location
We stayed in this property with our kids. The facilities are good in the property. We spent good time and we recommend the property to families with children while the couples may use it. It is close to Central Park and also transportation is easy by subway as there are main different lines in a close proximity. This is a town house therefore it is not a new house but it is a good experience and in the neighbourhood it is good to see these houses. There is a garden that is helpful when you travel with the children.
Better the Second Time Around
When I arrived at the apartment, it felt like coming home. This is the second time our friends and I have rented this apartment. We have no intention of looking elsewhere. The best of NYC in one location.
It is even near the GW bridge access off the Westside Hgwy. Don't let cabbies use the tunnels, unless a new Bridgegate blockage is in progress.
The kitchen is very serviceable, but lack of a dining area (if two bedrooms are in use) poses a slight detraction. Slight.
The bedrooms never get dark at night. The shades are completely translucent and keep things bright all night long. That is a significant detraction.
Still, location and separation of bedrooms is fantastic. It is spacious. And the library actually includes Hegel and Fichte -- amazing.
EXCELLENT, Clean, Convenient & SpaciousTownhouse!
We loved our stay at this beautiful, spacious townhouse on the UWS. Jamie, the owner, was very accommodating and responded to all of our questions quickly via email. We were a party of 6 (a married couple, my husband and myself and my two young daughters). The townhouse is divided into two levels. The ground level (with its own entrance) has 1 large bathroom with a tub, 1 bedroom, a mini-fridge, a TV and access to the private garden. The upstairs level (with its own entrance) has a living room with a futon and two couches that can be used as sleeping accommodations. The living room also has a TV, a table with two chairs and a view of the private garden through large windows. After walking through the upstairs living room, there is a bathroom/shower just off of the hallway. The kitchen is next in the hallway. The kitchen is very spacious and literally has everything item you can imagine. There were plates, cooking utensils, dishwasher tabs, ice trays, hand towels, coffee pots, a dishwasher, full fridge, oven, stove, stools for sitting at the large wood island, etc. Past the kitchen, the hallway ends in a bedroom that has a sliding door to close it off from the kitchen. This bedroom has beautiful windows that offer a full street view, but nice shades to block out the light for sleeping. The bedroom also has a table/chairs and several cute window seats. My husband and myself stayed downstairs, my two little girls slept on the futon in the upstairs living room and our married friends stayed in the upstairs bedroom past the kitchen. The layout of the townhouse gave everyone plenty of space! Everything was very clean and there were plenty of extra linens and towels.
The townhouse was located conveniently close to lots of food options. We got groceries from Whole Foods. We ordered a FANTASTIC margherita pizza from Little Italy Pizza on 92nd St. We also had lots of options of other ethnic foods that delivered for free. The townhouse was also very close to the subway, which made travel around the city super easy and cheap!
Thank you, Jamie, for a wonderful stay! After having another rental cancel on us weeks before our trip, we were delighted the we stumbled upon this treasure of a townhouse.
It was a perfect place for four adults and two children for nine days.
The property offers plenty of linens, towels, and fully equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the proximity to the subway, museums, and restaurants. All of our expectations were met by this property.
The apartment was well appointed and provided a great environment in the city.
The apartment was everything it promised to be on the listing. The location is great, just a block from the subway. There were plenty of resources in the neighborhood, as well, for restaurants. It was a very comfortable stay for our family, four adults. The garden level bedroom and bath was also very nice with access to the a garden. Although we were there in December, the weather was very warm during the day so the garden got some use. I would imagine in warmer times of the year it is especially nice.
Spacious Accommodations, Wonderful Location, Highly Recommended
We arrived from the West Coast in the evening and had one of the smoothest entries into a VRBO location possible. Jamie (the owner) had provided easy instructions and was also available if we had needed assistance. This is a well maintained 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom town home that allows for two couples to be together in a common space as well as retire for the night in their own bedrooms. One bedroom is on the first floor, the other on the second floor. As we were traveling with our nephew and his girlfriend, it was a great setup so the old folks could slip downstairs to their own quiet sleeping quarters.
The living area is spacious, the kitchen fully equipped allowing for plenty of space for the 4 of us. The owner (Jamie) came down to check in after we were settled and made us feel very welcome. She is a wealth of information about the surrounding neighborhood and we did follow a couple of her suggestions.
The location of this Upper Westside town home is fantastic. Near several subway stops (1,3,9 & C, B) getting anywhere in Manhattan was never a problem. Nearby restaurants offer plenty of selection, our favorites remain Gabriela's, Elizabeth's and a new one for us, Mermaid Inn. Each evening meal and service were great. Also, with a Whole Foods and local market nearby we were able to stock our kitchen and cook a couple of meals for ourselves.
I would definitely recommend this town home for families and couples traveling together. A special find in a beautiful part of Manhattan.
