Great unit with INCREDIBLE location

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed in this unit for a week with my wife and three teenage daughters. We had a wonderful time, and I would highly recommend renting this unit. The number one plus is the location - INCREDIBLE. It is, as advertised, just steps from Central Park. In fact, it is just around the corner from the park, on a quiet, tree lined one way street heading towards Central Park West, so has very little traffic despite its convenient location. The subway and National History museum are a block away, and it was a ten minute walk across the park to the Met. We spent the entire week exploring the city on the subway with no car or taxi's, and this location made that very doable. Even coming back late at night after shows, etc., felt safe because of the closeness to the subway and Central Park West.

The unit itself was modern and VERY clean. There were plenty of plates, utensils, towels, blankets, etc., etc. The queen in the bedroom was very comfortable. The girls slept on the futon, that folded flat and the couch, and were fine on both. They tried the pullout bed in the couch, but found it somewhat uncomfortable -- typical of pullouts -- because of the thin mattress and frame. But there was also an inflatable mattress which they didn't try or need.

Because of it's back side location, the unit was very quiet -- we could hear no street noise at all, and the lovely garden in back was vacant most days and nights. My wife and I got up every morning and strolled the neighborhood, finding new, great eating places and lovely tree lined avenues before we headed out for the day's adventure with the girls.

The owners were responsive to calls and e-mails, friendly and helpful. We really thought we got the Manhattan experience we hoped for, and this rental was a big reason.

Great location; apartment could be improved

  • 3 of 5
This property was hard to rate. The location is exceptional - less than 1 block to Central Park, the subway, and Natural History Museum. The apartment is at the back of the building, so it was very quiet and we heard no street noise at all. It is also quite spacious and the a/c worked well.

But...it could have been cleaner. Nothing filthy but just needs a thorough scrub. The cupboards are disorganized and filled with junk. The owner wasn't particularly communicative - I had to ask about 4 times to get the location of the apartment. There was no folder of instructions or helpful hints in the apartment. The bed was soft.
So, nothing outrageously wrong but probably enough to discourage me from booking here again.

It's really a shame because with a bit more effort this place could be amazing.

Owner's Response: First of all, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We take every review to heart in order to maintain our five star rating. Consequently we apologize for taking a few hours to respond but we were traveling with limited access to email. However we only received 2 emails opposed to the 4 aforementioned emails re the location and this was in addition to several phone calls regarding this matter. We do recall making special arrangements to accommodate your late check in (after 11PM) due to flight delays.

We are especially surprised to hear that you felt that the apartment "could have been cleaner" since you never mentioned this during our phone conversation the day after your arrival and only complemented everything. This could have been easily and immediately rectified. We have been using the same cleaning company for several years and this is a first complaint.
We acknowledge that in order to accommodate our tenants, we have a variety of items - all types of spices, cooking supplies and utensils, toys, books, pack-and-play, etc but these are usually appreciated by all.

The apartment has a folder with apartment specific information that also includes menus, maps, NYC travel guides and other pertinent NYC information. In addition there is always someone available to answer your questions since either myself, my wife or building manager are available 24/7.

As far as the bed, to ensure comfort, every bed has memory foam cover which could be easily removed. Again, a simple phone call could have improved the situation.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Great location, wonderful apartment. The owners (who live in the building) were flexible, relaxed, accomodating and really worked to find the right place for us. Fun, safe neighborhood for shopping and dining out. Steps away (literally) from Central Park. Lots of choices for buses and subway nearby. 2nd floor apartment quiet, space functioned well even with several people coming in and out. Big closets, sleeper sofas, generous suply of linens and towels, good A/C, all very clean and everything in good shape. Lovely balcony overlooking peaceful, tree-filled courtyard, perfect for relaxing at end of long day. We ate several meals at the apartment, everything in the kitchen worked well including dishwasher. Would come back for future stays. Negatives? None to speak of, maybe the can opener could be replaced and a few more glasses added to the kitchen. Really, a great place.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5
If you are want a non-touristy stay in New York, look no further! I loved the location. Mere steps to Centreal Park and only a block (or less) to the local dry clearner, grocery, pharmacy, Starbucks, restaurants, etc. As I sat outside on Columbus Ave drinking coffee it was clear that the pedestrians were New Yorkers. That was a very different experience than my previous trips to Manhattan.

This apartment is even better than I expected. I walked in the front door and literally said "WOW!". I'd been warned that the photos of a property can look better than it actually is. But this apt was as good, if not better, than the pictures on the HomeAway site.

The kitchen was great -- all full-size, high end appliances. Plus all the tools you need to cook. That is, if you can resist the restaurants. There was loads of closet space AND lots of hangers. The bed was wonderful -- so comfortable. And the living/dining room was comfortable and very charming. PLUS a small balcony you can sit on overlooking the courtyards of other brownstones.

Most surprising of all was the quiet. Even when on the balcony all I could hear were birds - no traffic, no sirens, just quiet.

Finally, Michel (i.e. Michael), the landlord was very friendly and helpful. Rent this property. You won't regret it.

Met all our expectations and more

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week and were delighted by the apartment and it's location. The apartment was clean, airy, and well stocked with essentials. The owner was helpful and friendly and was waiting for us on arrival. If we return to NY we would always choose to stay here and have already recommended it to our traveling friends. Many thanks from 2 very happy guests!

Beautiful, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our month stay at this apartment! It is very "New York" with the brick walls and so convenient to Central Park, subway, buses, restaurants and museums. Pictures were accurate and working with the owner was easy. The apartment was well equipped with everything you needed. Loved having breakfast out on the balcony! We would stay there again....or if not available, at another of their properties. I made the "families with young children" recommendation only if children can walk up stairs unassisted. This apt. is in a Brownstone with outside stairs and is on the 2nd floor. Location couldn't be better!
