Midtown Manhattan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Choose 1 bedroom Apartment or Add on 2-bedroom suite for large groups up to 10

NOTE: Please email directly for correct rates and Special Pricing which the new systems does not allow us to display

The 1-bedroom apartment with optional adjacent 2-room suite is located in the center of Manhattan.

A spacious living area includes a recently remodeled open plan kitchen-dining room, comfortable lounge with a cozy electric fireplace & big HDTV with premium cable channels. The apartment has an en suite bedroom with a queen size bed and a quality mattress and linens.

For larger groups you can add on the adjacent 2 room suite with a large bedroom & a library with a sofa bed. The main apartment is on the ground floor & offers views of the tree shaded private garden, whilst the adjacent 2-room suite is on the on the ground floor & the first floor with city views.

The lovely tree lined street is a favorite for photo shoots and TV episodes. The terraced garden has dining furniture & BBQ - perfect for al fresco dining on the pleasant Manhattan evenings! Smoking is OK in the garden.

The neighborhood is packed with great restaurants where you will sit next to the locals and perhaps a celebrity or two.

Your private walled garden is perfect retreat for relaxing with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Listen to the birds singing in the mature trees as you put your feet up and wind down. Surprisingly this rare tranquil oasis exists right in central Manhattan on a beautiful tree lined residential block at East Street and Park Avenue with convenient access to just about all you want to see and do.

Wander inside your apartment and enjoy the charm of exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a fireplace and original oil paintings. The large living room offers a large sofa in classic muted colors. A cushioned single Bahama bed is convenient for another guest and there are 2 chair beds that fold out into single beds. . A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room & bedroom. You'll find a touch of Hollywood Glamour in the recently renovated bathroom.....lots of marble and a gleaming glass pedestal sink. The small tub has a rain shower,

The dining area with cushioned window seat overlooks the peaceful garden

The gleaming new kitchen is all stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. It was recently remodeled with an eye towards quality and style as well as function. All appliances are full size, not the typical New York apartment size. If you don't feel like cooking, just order in from the many nearby restaurants (this is room service NYC style) or have the grocery stores deliver. The apartment is on the garden floor in the back and is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. You'll find many extra modern details such as high hat lights in all of the rooms, a security buzzer to open the front doors and quality windows and doors.

Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens, a fluffy feather duvet and lots of pillows. There's plenty of room for all of your clothes and shopping sprees in a wall of custom fitted closets. An adjacent 2-room 1/2 bath duplex suite is available for large families and can sleep 5 additional guests. The small downstairs room is furnished as an office/library and has a queen size sofa bed. Private interior stairs lead to a large upstairs bedroom with 2 twin size beds. A marble 1/2 bathroom with a sink and toilet is off of this room.

When you arrive you will be welcomed with some local wine from a New York vineyard. ;

About Mrs Marea Edynak

I love to travel and I love meeting people from around the world. Having guests is a wonderful way to have the world come to you.

My main home is in Florida, but I come to NYC as often as possible. It is rewarding to share my knowledge of insider places with my guests. I wrote a book for my guests, 'How to Live Like a Real New Yorker in our Neighborhood'. It gives suggestions about where to eat in all price ranges, museums, attractions, grocery shopping, luxury shopping, discount shopping, how to take the bus and subway, how to find your way around the city and lots more.

I also write a blog about NYC with posts about restaurants, attractions, How to get Theater tickets, and other Tips for Travelers. Just 'like' me on facebook to read it: or if you are not on facebook, please e-mail me for the link. You don't have to stay here to read it.

I hope that I can inspire you to love NYC as as much as I do.

Mrs Marea Edynak purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mrs Marea Edynak chose Midtown Manhattan

It is in the center of Manhattan near to just about everything. I wanted to open the door and have NYC at my feet. My husband wanted trees so we chose this pretty tree lined street where we can walk to restaurants, shopping, theater and more.

What makes this apartment unique

The central location lets you choose to walk to most places, take the bus on the corner, the subway and 2 & 1/2 blocks, a taxi or car service. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently remodeled with high end finishes. And it is rare to have such a large private garden in Center City Manhattan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were three couples who stayed at Marea's apartment in NYC. We had a wonderful visit. Here are some things of note:

Great location - easy access to grocery stores, public transport within blocks. Kitchen - good sized refrigerator/ice cube maker, dishwasher. Back garden, a real oasis after busy days, we loved it. Flat screen TV (lots of channels). Above all an engaging hostess. Thanks, Marea

Great location - lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from two weeks’ staying at this lovely apartment. It was our first time booking on Trip Advisor/Flipkey so I was a bit nervous (even though Marea was very prompt at replying to our many pre-trip emails!!) but there was no need for any worries at all.

It’s a lovely spacious flat with plenty of room to relax inside in the loungeroom or outside in the garden – a rarity in New York, I believe. It is also very well located – away from the Times Square tourist madness but only a short subway ride or walk and you’re in the heart of it all. There are heaps of local restaurants in the neighbourhood – we tried lots and didn’t strike a bad one. Our favourite was Belvedere, barely 100 metres away and Vezzo for pizza. There are also some great little bars in the area – including Middle Branch (or MB) in 33rd Street.

A big thank you to our hostess, Marea, who was so helpful in recommending restaurants and activities, and who takes great pride in her rental apartment. For four women travelling together, it really made our trip to have so much space in a great central location.

Owner's Response: It was lovely to meet all 4 of you and get a chance to know you a little bit. You are a great group and a lot of fun to talk to. Whenever guests appreciate the apartment and love NYC it makes me happy. You are always welcome here. Marea

We spent a week in NYC in the the main apartment+suite (7 persons) and we had an amazing experience because both apartments are really spacious and comfortable, including everything you need.

The location is great! Anything you would need to purchase is within a couple blocks of this apartment. Restaurants abound in this area of NYC .

The apartment is located on the ground floor {no wasting time for the elevator to arrive} ... but is very quiet.

The kitchen is very very nice and it was fantastic having dinner all together in the kitchen-dining room on the large table (absolutely comfortable for 8-9 persons) : much, much more enjoyable then staying in a hotel. I would definitely recommend this condo to any of my friends or family that are going to NYC and we plan on returning ourselves.

The HD TVs are top quality, the garden is lovely, the bathrooms cleans and well-maintained.

And what about the owner ... Miss Marea ... is one great owner!! she was absolutely kind and with a wonderful courtesy, and we saved a lot of money following her suggestions

A special thanks, Marea, for opening your doors for us and our wonderful stay!

This is the best rental situation I have ever heard of or seen.

Owner's Response: Dear Roberto and family, Thanks so much for your kind words and thanks for keeping the apartment in immaculate condition. You are a warm and loving family and I really look forward to seeing you all again. You are always welcome. Marea

You get exactly what's on offer and more!

Wonderful place we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! We took a long time choosing where to stay and read all the reviews which did help a lot, that is why I want to help people looking to stay in New York. It was our first time in NY and Marea made our stay very memorable and enjoyable. Marea has a very special welcome for all her guests and takes great care to make sure you have a good stay.

The townhouse is in a fabulous location with the Empire State Building as your point of reference, it is VERY clean and comfortable with lots of space. The garden is a great bonus.

I had heard that New Yorkers don't cook, well, Marea shows you how that woks and it was a real benefit to us. Marea is around if you need her but she is not intrusive. The house has a very homely feel to it, the amenities are just as described and the kitchen is well equipped. Marea keeps a small lader stock ie coffee, tea, sugar, condiments etc.

Myself, my husband, my daughter and her husband with their two children stayed in the house, with lots of room. My 7yr old granddaughters best memory of NYC is visiting and purchasing from the American Girl store, she/we would not have known anything about this unless Marea had told us.

We would Recommend to anyone and I will defiantly return here on my next visit. If you want to have a stay in NYC that is different from your 'run of the mill' hotel then stay here!!

Nous avons passé 10 jours à New York. Nous étions 2 couples et 3 ados, nous avons énormément apprécié notre location, c était suffisamment grand pour nous très bien agencé, très propre et très calme et très bien situé. Je recommande vivement cette location, si un jour nous retournons à New York, je reprendrai la même location. Un très grand merci à Marea pour sa gentillesse et son aide avant notre départ.

Nous avons adoré cette très belle ville et l appartement et proche des commerce, du métro il est très bien situé.
