About The Owner

Your hosts will be Cristina and Michael. Cristina is originally from Portugal and Michael from Austria. Both love to travel and do not like to stay in hotels. Through this passion they have aquired apartments in Vienna - Austria, Sesimbra - Portugal and Buenos Aires. They have turned this passion into a business and want to provide their fellow travellers with what they would expect in a vacation rental: A clean, affordable and comfortable home!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Upper West Side

In their NY apartments extra special care was taken to

1. furnish a first class bed with high thread count linens,

2. make sure the noise of the city is at a minimum,

3. be in their neighbourhood, the Upper West Side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent location. The apartment was very small, but clean and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Location - Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, 5 minutes walk to Lincoln Center. The apartment is quiet and well-kept. And the bed was very comfortable with nice linens. We made breakfasts and casual dinners, had everything we needed in the kitchen. We would like to return.

Leaves much to be desired

  • 2 of 5

This apartment has several desirable features:

• Location – ½ block from Subway, convenient to shopping and easy access to the theatre district and East Side.

• Quiet – 65th Street is quiet and the bedroom is in the rear.

• Large – very spacious one bedroom, with the living room and bedroom at opposite ends of the apartment for additional privacy. The bed is very comfortable and the bedroom is dark and quiet at night.

• Plenty of storage – nothing in any drawers or closets, so ample storage for our belongings.

• Responsiveness – the apartment manager, Miriam, is very responsive. When I called the shortcomings of the apartment to her attention, she promptly went there and called me to say she would address them.

Despite these features, we cannot recommend it:

• No control over heat – there is no way to control the heat, which goes on and off as necessary to satisfy the legal requirements, but nothing more. When asked whether it is possible to control the heat, Miriam’s response was “you can open a window”

• Worst outfitted kitchen of any of the units we have rented – we’ve rented four apartments in NY and several in Paris, London and Rome, and this was the most sparsely provisioned. A few examples: only one tea spoon, four unmatched wine glasses, no bowls or large plates to serve food on.

• Poor bathroom lighting – dark with no light near mirror. Shaving or putting on makeup in this apartment is a real challenge.

• Poor apartment maintenance – a broken cord making it impossible to raise of lower a blind in the bedroom, a permanently stuck bathroom window (always open), missing sink stoppers in both kitchen and bathroom, missing hook on back of bathroom door with only bracket remaining, a lamp in the living room with a broken switch.

• Poor building maintenance – peeling paint, dirty elevator and all the signs of a rent-controlled building where the owner does nothing not required by law.

• One bath and one hand towel for person for an entire week – when asked whether we could get additional towels, Miriam’s only suggestion is that we could wash the ones we had in the basement laundry room.

The bottom line – Despite the claim in the add that “this is our home”, this is a rental unit that no one lives in. If anyone did, they would not tolerate its conditions. The building and apartment are depressing and we would never stay there again. However, if the shortcomings listed are addressed, I'd give it a third star.

Owner's Response: Even though the guest and I have spoken and emailed in regards to his review, I am still confused about his low rating of our apartment. Most of his complaints are minor and were already rectified. Before this review was posted I had emailed photos to the guest. Among these are: additional bowls, teaspoons; replaced bathroom door hook; an additional stopper for kitchen sink. Some of his issues are factually incorrect (cord of bedroom blinds not broken - it's a complicated mechanism as these European shades open either from the bottom or the top - if the guest had contacted me while in residence I could have showed him how it works. Also, there are plenty of platters, on a shelf in the cabinet with the pots and pans - again, a quick phone call could have solved this non-issue. The bathroom sink does have a stopper.) The lobby and hallways are drab, but clean - and are not under my control. It is confusing to me that the cleanliness and quiet of the apartment, the comfort of the bed, and the attractiveness of the layout and furnishings counted for so little against a bathroom hook (replaced) and a few teaspoons (added).

Great vacation in a great place!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly like in the pictures and communication was super fast and professional! We arrived late and were worried we'd have a complicated check-in, but the instructions were clear and even included a video. We had a couple of minor snags, but Miriam was there right away to sort it out. Of course the location cannot be beat; across the street from Lincoln Center, half a block from Central Park (we did not go that much it was cold) and an organic Café downstairs. Great vacation in a great place!

Great Location - Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in New York and the apartment was a perfect central location. We enjoyed the entire week and were very comfortable in the apartment. It was larger than we expected. We look forward to coming back again next year.
