Imagine yourselves living like New Yorkers - enjoying your morning coffee or decaf over the Times, filling your visit with theater, concerts, recreational activities, shopping, historic walks, art and science museums. At the end of your day - return to your comfortable apartment to lay down your purchases, put up your feet, regroup to head out again for an evening of clubbing or culture, or just take a hot bath, rent a movie, enjoy cable television, catch local sports action, and have any sort of food delivered from any restaurant imaginable. This fabulous, spacious Upper West Side apartment awaits you. We are ideally located between trendy Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, a block from world-renowned Broadway. While we are a very short distance from the excitement that is New York, we are on a quiet block, in a quiet building, affording you the luxury of a good night's rest. The location is extremely safe, and we have excellent security for additional peace of mind.
General: This apartment is perfect for families, or for groups of friends who'd like a NYC pied a terre. The apartment is filled with books and videos and music, as well as toys and the sorts of things children might enjoy, but parents might not wish to drag along in suitcases. We boast all the comforts of home in a wonderful, vibrant setting.
The apartment has a brand new large kitchen, and dining to accommodate everyone. There is a laundry room in the basement of the building. To add to this warm and cheery atmosphere is one friendly cat, (the smaller gray one in the photo, the other passed away) who will cuddle up to you and your children. All we ask is that you feed them. Weekly maid service can be provided.

Wendy and family - Mexico and Wisconsin, USA
'We had a wonderful week - one of the most relaxing NY trips we've had in years. Due to the location of the apartment, we had the convenience of getting everywhere without the need to get transportation. We walked through Central Park, to the museums, and more. My husband jogged in the park every morning, and we even walked home after the Broadway musical we saw! The best was the chocolate chip streudel from Zabar's. Thanks for the recommendations and your help with our plans before we even arrived!' The McDowells, Flowery Branch, Georgia, USA.
'Thanks so much for welcoming us into your home. The children adored the cats and loved being welcomed by them whenever we arrived home. Also, the large TV and abundant DVD and CD collections were great to unwind to.!' Harrison Family, USA
'Thank you for allowing us to become true New Yorkers for the week. Only in NYC can you buy fresh strawberries from a sidewalk stand at 11PM. Your home and the neighborhood are beautiful.' Tayl
We have received many emails regarding this property. This is an ideal setting for adults and kids. It is extremely well located, and very comfortable.For more information, please contact us.
This rental was everything the owners promised and more. It was spacious, ( we were four adults and two young children) close proximity to central park, museum of natural history, public transportation, restaurants etc. The owners were gracious, easy to communicate with and wonderful ambassadors for NYC Far better and more economical than any hotel. I would wholeheartedly recommend this "home away".
A very short walk from restaurants, museums, all shopping and transportation. Don't feel like cooking at home? Take your morning paper to any of hundreds of sidewalk cafes, bistros and famous restaurants owned and operated by some of the most famous chefs in the world, or find a local diner and enjoy the 'bottomless' cup of coffee. With both Central Park, and Riverside Park (situated along the mighty Hudson River,) within blocks- you are ready to run around, and enjoy New York's greenery close to home. Rent bicycles nearby and travel down to the tip of Manhattan and back again - or take a spin around Central Park - breezing past the runners and horse-drawn carriages. Or join the runners who jog around the reservoir! Make yourselves a picnic from local appetizing shops, like iconic Zabars or Barney Greengrass, and feast on the best bagels in the world. We are near all subways, buses and taxis, but you could walk anywhere easily and discover your own precious New York City moments.
