Walk a few steps down the hall and you will find yourself in the large open kitchen / dining /living area that opens onto the private decked backyard. You will also find one full bathroom and one bedroom on the ground level.

About Lisa Grossman

Born and raised in New York City, Lisa has spent the better part of the last twenty five years in the travel industry, managing the travel needs of demanding New York City corporations and luxury vacationers. Over the years, Lisa has purchased and renovated many apartments, becoming intimately familiar with New York City real estate market. In 2008, Lisa began renting her investment condos as short term vacation rental properties, finding a natural merge of her two life interests, travel and real estate, while satisfying the needs of individuals and families seeking quality apartment accommodations when visiting New York City. Having been in the travel industry for so many years and specializing in luxury travel Lisa has had the opportunity to experience the best luxury hotels around the world. This experience coupled with Lisa’s knowledge of her clients needs, gives her the background to understand what travelers are seeking when looking for a vacation rental apartment in her hometown, New York City. In 2011 when New York City enacted a law making short term vacation rentals illegal in buildings containing 3 apartments or more and Lisa was forced to remove her condominium units from the short term rental market. In 2012, Lisa purchased a charming 2 unit townhouse which contains two individual 4 bedroom apartments making them legally available for short term vacation renters. Please see VRBO listing 426870 also.

Fabulous Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just as stated in the description and more. It is conveniently located to MANY restaurants and sight-seeing attractions in NY or the subway. It was so spacious especially for 6 women in our group. You don't find that often in NYC apartments. I would definitely stay here again. Lisa, you were wonderful to work with...always promptly returning my e-mails and loved the bottle of wine upon our arrival. Thank you so much for helping to provide a wonderful time in New York!!

Absolutely brilliant! Everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accommodation in the heart of New York city. The entire process was so easy with Lisa who was efficient, professional and answered every question we needed.

The Midtown area is bustling with energy, close to great restaurants and of course Times Square and Broadway. We loved every day and walked everywhere!!!

The downstairs Midtown flat was in such a brilliant location. Furthermore, the actual apartment was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and super clean. There were 4 huge queen bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious kitchen. We also travelled with an 18month old and there was a cot also provided. The apartment easily fit us all and we have found this by far the easiest part of our journey so far as Lisa was so organised, providing a handbook and lots of information for us to be able to follow. Believe the photos, it is that good!!! The listing was accurate, there were no hidden costs, the property was brilliantly maintained, wonderful customer service by Lisa. I highly recommend it!!

NYC is a special place and we thank you for helping to make it such a memorable time for us.

If you stay there, Gotham pizza just a minute walk away do a beautiful margherita pizza! Enjoy! The location is unbeatable!!

March Family trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed at this very central and lovely apartment and we were all pleased with our choice. Very close to transportation and easy walking to many areas. The apartment was exactly as the pictures reflected and as described. Our only suggestion is that the two arm chairs sat very low and made sitting and rising difficult for some of us. I looked at many different propeties so I felt I made an educated decision and my experience certainly proved it was also the right one!

Stylish Manhattan Living

  • 4 of 5

When you walk into this apartment you are greeted with a sense of style and comfort that makes you feel relaxed in this bustling noisy city . The apartment is as described and photographed , it's big so a sense of space is also what fills you , especially if you are in a group , you won't feel cramped here . All the detail is there from the quality cutlery to the comfortable beds , 4 oversized bedrooms with ample storage and space . The keypad entry is great when there are a group of you , no need to worry about keys , it is secure and was a haven after being out in loud and brash NYC all day long . Yes there is street noise , it's New York , so if you can't deal with that , stay in a hotel on the 40 th floor . It is as you booked , nothing was disappointing

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post your review. I very much appreciate it. I am sorry you had to endure the street noise during your stay however if you return again in the future I am pleased to say that by the end of April 2015 we will finally be installing our long awaited custom triple pane windows which should drastically reduce the street noise. Glad you enjoyed NYC and hope to see you in the future.

Great rental in NYC. I can not say enough about how great the accommodations were and the location. We will rent from Lisa again whenever we travel to NYC. It was like being in your own home away from home. Many thanks to Lisa for being so easy to work with. Rental was clean and exactly like the pictures posted.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We were 8 people, 6 were teenagers celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. Perfect size and space. Convenient to everything we wanted to do or see. Even though it was cold and raining we were warm and cozy. I loved the fact you gave us ear plugs. It is not loud by NY standards, but we are from rural Maine, which is silent at night!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I am sorry to hear that it rained during your stay. I am glad you appreciated the ear plugs. Hopefully if you return in the future you will not need them as we are expecting new windows in the coming months that will reduce the outdoor noise.
