About Linda

We relocated from California over 30 years ago, and love New York, especially the Upper West Side. The park is our backyard. We picnic, run, bike, play tennis, attend free concerts, and shows. Winters in our 'backyard' offen allows us to sled, ski, and skate.

We love dining, and are so fortunate to have every type of cuisine and ethnicity within walking distance from our home.

Travels away from home take to exotic locations to explore, and play. Scuba diving is one of many passions, as well as skiing, and Yankees Baseball.

Linda purchased this apartment in 1994

What makes this apartment unique

Ground Floor Apartment, approx 400 Sf, in small intimate historic building with 10 units. Quiet and private with all the excitement of the big city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda,



I stayed at your vacation rental apartment for three days the second week in May, and have been meaning to e-mail you to say thank you. Sorry this is a belated thank you, but it's been crazy-busy here.

The apartment was absolutely immaculate and lovely, better than I could have imagined. I was impressed at how thoughtfully you had stocked the fridge and supplied all sorts of toilettries in the bathroom. And I loved having that wonderful big bathtub to soak in the day that I walked from W 83rd all the way down to 21st Street and back again! The neighbourhood was great - so conveniently located -- and I always felt safe, even when walking home from supper at the nearby restaurants in the evening after dark.



I've kept your contact info to give to any friends who might be wanting to visit your wonderful city, and if I'm lucky enough to be able to return to NYC, I will definitely be contacting you again to stay at your apartment.



Thanks again for making my days on my own in NYC safe and comfortable.



Very best regards,

RTF

I was very pleased with this apartment. It was clean and had everything we needed. The neighbourhood was awesome. We walked 5 minutes to a grocery store that had everything we needed and we also stopped at a restaurant--also a 5 minute walk--called jackson hole--the waitress and the food were awesome. We found free parking on the street--although it took time to find a spot but hey it's NYC. Linda was very accommodating and very easy to work with. Thanks Linda

FAB LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this unit this summer, the unit itself is very very clean and nicely appointed and stocked. Linda greeted us on the street about a minute after I texted her I was at the building. We were very early for check-in but Linda brought us right in as the unit was ready. Linda was very nice and a long time New Yorker with a host of knowledge about the city and the neighborhood. We sat at the little table by the mantle and had a mid day refreshment and listened to music - with the lights down and the shades up we looked out onto the sunny street and were able to get a real sense of Upper West Side living. Easy to the Subway and the Park and Museums are a short walk away. A great little unit for a couple. The only minor issue was the A/C unit seemed to be on it's last legs and didn't quite cool the place down enough for sleeping comfortably. I will definitely consider renting this unit again.

What a wonderful experience all around. My stay at Linda's apartment started with a rather major misunderstanding on my part but she was kind, patient and understanding about the whole matter. For that, I am so grateful.
The location is great, literally steps from Central Park and the subway station. The C train will be your go-to train, esp. if you need to get to mid town or Brooklyn.
The kitchen was stocked with bottled water and coffee and little snacks and though I didn't cook, I certainly could have whipped up some solid meals; it's a well-appointed kitchen! Linda also had tons of guide maps, toiletries should you have forgotten anything, and even rain slickers!
The apartment being on the first floor and street-facing, I was expecting some noise, but nope. I never heard a thing and was able to sleep in a little, which was great after some long, hard days of having fun. There was ZERO noise from other apartments, the walls and ceilings must be super thick, and because the windows face west, you don't get crazy bright light burning you awake at 7am (I like my sleep, can you tell?).
Bed was comfortable, my back felt great, good water pressure in the shower. The photos and description are accurate, it was obvious the entire place had just been cleaned and overall, is very well-cared for.
The UWS is definitely an upscale area, very nice neighborhood, and walking back alone from the train late at night, I felt perfectly safe.
I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Manhattan.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I went for 4 days and stayed at this location. We have nothing to complain about at all. It was fantastic! Linda was right there to greet us and go over the room. She provided folders with the restaurants, some with written notes. There were also books, subway maps, and other pamphlets to help make our experience one to remember. The owners were happy to answer any questions, but let us alone to do our own thing which was great. I could rattle off a number of great things about the place, but I won't. I'll just say that when we go back, if Linda Istill has the place, we will definitely be back. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!!
