Just exactly what you are paying for!!

  • 4 of 5
This is a great apartment at a good price that has little or no touristic stuff at hand, but provides good access to the city via the subway and is easily reachable by cab later in the evening.... especially from anywhere on the east side.
Apartment was fairly clean and well stocked with breakfast materials upon our arrival. The kitchen is well equipped and we chose to eat in a couple of times as there is a good supermarket and decent fish market nearby.
We had a lovely time staying here, and recommend it to anyone a bot more adventurous who would prefer to spend their money on things others than expensive hotel rooms or apartments.
Thanks to John & Rose for making the spot available.

I have to agree with the VRBO bear. John and Rose's apartment is great. My sister and I flew from the UK via Ireland and met up with our cousins from Illinois for a joint 50th birthday girls weekend. John and Rose were very helpful even before we arrived when I emailed for information and John was there to meet us. There was a welcome supply of groceries and fruit and he gave us some good recommendations for bars and restaurants before leaving. There was also an information folder which was really useful as well as the free wifi. The apartment was homely, clean and comfortable and the garden was a nice addition (although we only used it in the dark). We arrived late evening and it was dark, but we were delighted in the morning with the lovely apartment block (with security gate) and the helpful, friendly neighbours. The apt is an easy walk to 116th street subway and there are lots of shops, take aways and restaurants in the close vicinity. We ate in the neighbourhood most nights (can recommend Patsy's - best pizza ever!) and wandered around without feeling uneasy, often asking passers by for directions etc and everyone we met was a credit to NY!
This was my first time in New York and we did lots of the usual tourist things, but I think staying here gave it an extra edge of authenticity. I would definitely recommend and hope to return again sometime soon!

Want to leave a note saying and thanking John as what a great hostess he is, upon our arrival we had cereal, milk, coffee, cream for coffee and some very nice fruit, you made our arrival so pleasant. Place was clean and well maintained. My 89 year old grandma staid in the apartment as she was tired from the trip and John brought some stew he personally prepared and it was delicious we all had it my mother as well as my sisters!!!

We recommend the place to stay, but it is important you are able to use the subway or bus downtown, otherwise you will have to get a taxi.

The neighborhood is safe and I will just recommend to get to the subway down the second street to the 116th.

Had a great time, THANKS JOHN!!!

Cat event in NYC PURRfect

  • 5 of 5
Four friends and myself stayed here for AKC/CFA event at the Javitz center. October is a great time to be in NYC. The apartment worked great for 5 women even with 1 bathroom. Breakfast items waiting for us was a surprise and offstreet parking was exactly what we needed. Grocery store just a block away, numerous delis and really nice bakery within walking distance. Subway was close and we had a great time for some of us first times in New York. The Meet the Breeds will be in New York again in 2012 and I've already recommended this apartment to some friends.

Brazilian family in NYC

  • 5 of 5
I took my Brazilian family to experience NYC and before departing I was advised to not expect people to be as kind as we are used to. But John and Rose surprised us very much being so friendly and attentive walking with us through the neighborhood and showing nice places to go. Everything inside the apartment was perfectly organized, keys and umbrellas for each person and a map on the table which helped us a lot. My trip was perfect and we would definitely stay there again!

Having a great host makes having a blast in NYC and living like a local enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5
As with most vacations it is the people you meet and staff that tend to make or break a vacation. I have worked in the hotel industry previously and I am happy to tell you that John is as good a host as any concierge I have ran into.

Before arrival booking was easy, and all questions were answered very promptly. When we arrived the unit was clean, decorated with some nice antique furniture, and stocked with water, fruit, cereal, milk, bread, tea, coffee, etc...

John arrived and gave us a map of the area and took the time to explain how the metro works, the lay of the land, and what were some of his best recommendations for food, services and things to see. After finding out we were wine drinkers we had a case of wine glasses in our apartment when we came home that evening as the ones that were there previously were missing or broken, as well as a case of cereals to give us more breakfast options.

We were given his cell number and told to call anytime if he could make our stay better or answer any questions. We felt this was a truly genuine offer. It is nice to know your not just a guest but a valued one. He also texted a couple times through the trip to ensure things were going well for us.

Our departure/check out was smooth, payment through paypal a breeze. John's service did not end there. He offered a follow up call through our driver and after finding out one of our girls lost a couple t shirts when she arrived home offered to go shopping to replace them on our behalf.

You can understand we left a bottle of wine for him on departure.

A couple tips

John will recommend you get a metro pass. Do it! You will go everywhere on the subway, and it is a great value over the week.

In the evening get off at 86th (6 uptown train), and catch a cab back to the well lit apartment building. No point in carrying all your purchases from the metro when cabs are so cheap, and though the area is fine the ladies in the group will enjoy not having to walk the streets at night.

We come from a small town. Arriving into the upper east side/harlem is a bit of a deer in the headlights moment. If you are looking for a nice, clean apartment, that is reasonably priced you will be happy here. We felt it was good value considering some of the rates being charged for hotels and apartments in the city. Had we wanted the ritz we would have stayed there. Our expectations were a nice clean place, which we received with great service!!! Thank you John
