This was our first experience with a private rental, and I was very anxious as you hear so many horror stories of fraud. But I am so happy to say that this unit was exceptional. Both Peter and Stephen were available to help during my enquiry process, as well as during our stay. It was so quiet in the unit, I am not sure that there was anyone else on our floor! Having a kitchen, washer and drier was so convenient. The unit is in the perfect location, within walking distance to so many NY sites, including Central Park, Empire State, and madison square garden. And for longer trips the subway stations are only a block away. Lots of choices for food, as well as a supermarket one block away. My husband,2 children (8 and 12) and I stayed here for 11 nights over Christmas and New Years eve, and wouldn't have wished to be anywhere else.
