Great hosts and townhome.

  • 4 of 5
Our experience at this cute little townhome was very nice. There were 4 of us and we all stayed very comfortably. This remodeled property was clean and very well-kept. We had absolutely no complaints about the townhome, with exception of a running toilet that we pointed out at the end of our stay, which certainly was no big deal. Tony immediately apologized and was going to have it taken care of ASAP. We didn't do much cooking (who spends time cooking when you are in New York?), but the kitchen had the things you need, which was all we cared about. Tony and Christine were awesome hosts and very responsive both before, during and after our arrival.

There is a sweet small grocery store literally within a block, which was quite handy, and we did buy a few things we needed at the little "department" type store just across from the grocer.

We flew into LaGuardia and took Uber (not a taxi). The travel time was about 20 minutes and cost us about $28 total. Not too shabby!! This was our first experience with the Uber app. If you have not used it, download the app before you get there. It's private people driving you around in lieu of high taxi fares. We used them 3 times while we were there to go to and from the airport, and one evening when we were too exhausted to do the subway to get home after a night a eating and drinking downtown.

I do, however, have to point out that the neighborhood was a bit challenging for our tastes. We were safe and never felt threatened nor pan-handled, but we did have to walk to subways and buses through some very sketchy "activities" at times. The street the property is on was quiet for the most part, but Lexington Avenue had it's "moments." I would have to rate the neighborhood low.

All in all, for the price, don't expect Manhattan...but this property was worth the stay. We experienced New York and all walks of life during our week there... and that was okay with us. Afterall, it's those interesting and colorful experiences that you remember most... right? We had plenty of fun and enjoyed our time. Thank you so much Tony & Christine.

New York Adventure!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Tony & Christine's apartment during our recent adventure in New York. They were very helpful getting the arrangements made and providing excellent advice on travel from the Amtrak to the apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable and our hosts were very accomodating- even trying to track us down upon our departure to return my camera that was left plugged in. When we were unable to connect Tony promptly put the camera in the mail and it beat us home. I was so impressed and appreciative of that effort!

We walked or took public transportation everywhere from the apartment - Central Park, Museum Mile, Battery Park, Times Square, Broadway, 9/11 Memorial, etc as we enjoyed a wonderful overview of New York with a comfortable place to rest each night at a comparatively reasonable cost!

Great place in East Harlem

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 people stayed at Christine and Tony's place for 6 days. Prior to departure the discussion with the owners was very easy and helpfull. Tony welcomed us in the appartment and has been very nice and precise with all the explanations regarding the appartment and its equipment. We could contact him during our stay if we needed.
The appartment is well equiped and can easily welcome 4 adults. We particularly appreciated its cleanliness.
Public transportation are accessible within a 5 minutes walk and a supermarket is located just around the corner. The location is safe and quiet.
We had a wonderful stay at Christine and Tony's and I would strongly recommand to stay at there place when visiting New-York. Thank you again for this great experience!

121 Town House

  • 5 of 5
This rental met all of our expectations. Our daughter lives nearby and we stayed here during our visit with her. It had all the basic amenities including new appliances. The apartment was clean and neat, had obviously been recently renovated and is in "like new" condition. Security is very good and the unit is very quiet. It is conveniently located near the 4, 5 , 6 subway line which is a direct line to Downtown. The owners are very friendly and pleasant and live directly above the apartment. The price is comparatively very reasonable. We highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay there again when we return to visit our daughter.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just as described. Very clean and located near a number of business, eateries, as well as public transportation. Central Park isn't too far away either. Tony was very helpful with tips on getting around on the subway and finding places to eat. We stayed with our 11 month old and they even had a pack and play for our son. Everything was great. Thanks.

Very Nice Place and Affordble...

  • 5 of 5
The Apartment was VERY clean and the owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. Why get a hotel when you get have your own apartment, for a fraction of the cost? There are two subway stations within blocks of your stay and the place is easy going to/from anywhere you want to be in NYC. I would stay here again and hopefully will have a chance to do just that next fall.
