“New York, New York!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2014

We spent a week visiting the great city of New York! The apartment was ideal for two couples. It is centrally located, easy access to the subway, restaurants, park, museums... We will definitely contact Elaine and Anthony once we return to the city! Anthony met us on our arrival and spent an hour giving us details to the city. He was a great help!

“Amazing location and plenty of space”

This was the perfect place to experience brownstone apartment living on the Upper West Side! Close to Central Park and so many great restaurants and museums! The apartment is not fancy, but it's very comfortable with plenty of linens and towels and kitchen supplies. And having two bedrooms plus a sleeper sofa was great. Tony and Elaine are very organized and give you all the info you need from where to find the key to how to run the TV and get on the wifi. We will definitely try to stay there again the next time we're in town.

“Great location in NYC”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2014

We rented Anthony's apartment for our spring break vacation. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had plenty of space for us and our 2 children. It was surprisingly quiet at night and very convenient for anything you may need or want to do. Just a couple of blocks away is a great playground in Central Park and the natural history museum. Fantastic Zabar's is right there on Broadway plus all kinds of great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

“Quaint clean 2 bedroom on upper West Side.”

Very clean and homey. Great neighborhood. Has all the essentials. Perfect location for restaurants and bars. Easy walking to Central Park and Metro. Beware: 35 steps up to second floor apt. Definitely recommend it!

“Good place for NYC”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

The apartment was well located, close to the subway and Midtown. Just steps from Central Park, it is both quiet and in the heart of the city. Tony was available and very helpful. A place not to miss when you want to discover NYC. The area is really nice, with lots of restaurants and shops to refuel when you want to cook your own. The apartment is spacious enough for 5, and especially clean for NYC. A real place for a very reasonable price.

“Great stay”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2012

We were a family of 4 who stayed in the apartment for 10 days. Please was clean and quiet which was good. Owners easy to deal with. Originally wanted an apartment closer to Times Square but we were happy we stayed in this area. Lots of great places to eat, and only a block and a half from the Subway and around 4 subway stops to Times Square. Walking distance to Central Park. Quiet, safe neighbourhood. Did have problems with the internet which was a bit frustrating, we gave up in the end. Overall, would recommend it.

“Great Apartment and Convenient Location”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2012

We stayed for 6 nights (2 Adults, 3 children ages 8, 6, and 4) for a family vacation. Getting access to the apartment was easy and we met soon after to complete the transaction. We were given total privacy during the stay but I had the feeling any problems would have been addressed right away. The apartment was clean, more spacious than I expected, and stocked with modern appliances and any kitchenware you could need. I also noted that there is a small collection of dry goods (salt, coffee, etc..) that was likely left behind by previous tenants. The TV, phone, and wireless internet worked well. The apartment is 2 blocks away from the 1 Subway and 3 blocks away from the B/C Subway. With these lines, it is very easy to access any location in the city. Zabar's is great for breakfast fare and has a superb grocery. I walked for coffee and croissants every morning to bring back to the apartment. The proximity to museums and Central Park is obvious from the location. Parking is simple if you are fine paying $35/day. There is a garage on the next block. Just pull in, give them your keys, and they give you a ticket. There is free parking on the street in front of the apartment but it is fairly difficult to get a space. Also, once you have a space, the car must be moved for street cleaning over 2 noon hours during the week (11-1230 Tues/Thurs on one side, 2 different days for the other side, indicated on signs on the street). If you manage to get a space you can do what the locals do and sit in your car, double-parked on the other side of the street waiting for the cleaner to pass and then take your spot back. Also, beware of getting pinned between tightly parked cars. If you're willing to put up with this, you can park for free. It is no problem to double park for a few minutes to unload or load your car in front of the apartment. People aren't leaving their parking spots very often. No parking 15' from hydrants, indicated by yellow paint on the curb. They must enforce this strictly, since people happily double park in the middle of the street for an hour rather than park next to a hydrant. In all, a great place to stay for a young family. Quiet building, quiet street, great location. Took me a few days to figure out the parking, but that was it.

“Comfortable and close in NY”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2010

Great location and a nice apt. The local dining was absolutely wonderful and the owner very helpful with this. The nearby subway was very close, safe and convenient to most NY major sites on this line.

“Location is Great”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2010

We stayed for a week on a family vacation spun off from a Carnegie Hall performance by one of our son's high school orchestra. The location is great due to being within walking distance to Central Park and the Museum of Natural History, two subway lines, and Amsterdam and Broadway avenues. The apartment technically sleeps five but it is small like I am sure most apartments in the area are, and it was difficult for five to lounge around in the living room. Since so little time is spent there, however, if you are taking advantage of what New York has to offer, it does not really matter. You do not want to be the person spending every night on the couch bed, it is better to take turns. I grew up in the New York area so I was accustomed to spending time in older buildings with tiny bathrooms and heating via pipes and radiators, but it is part of the New York experience and most people I suspect will not mind.

“Fantastic location, spacious, safe & warm”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2010

4 of us (incl. 2 teenagers) recently spent 6 nights. The apartment was great, finding the key and getting in was easy with clear instructions from Tony. Location fantastic, close to subways, Central Park, Museum of Natural History. Zabars is amazing and only 1.5 blocks away for great soups, easy dinners, bread, cheese and delicious coffee. The apartment was very warm, a bit too warm, but better than being cold. The bathroom is dated but reasonably clean, everything else was fine. Kitchen well stocked with essentials. We arranged late check out. Just a warning, the main bedroom does have a water pipe in it and you hear every drop of water from apartments above. Felt like a local staying there!! Much better than a hotel!
