Why Ray Wick chose Upper West Side

This private, full-floor apartment is located in a private Owner occupied townhouse, not a large anonymous apartment building. Although you will be self-sufficient in your apartment, the Owner is always available to you for whatever you may need during your stay: tips on sites and getting around NYC, arranging taxi service, emergency repairs, restaurant advice. Much like a private concierge. The townhouse is safe and secure with multiple entry locks, fire & safety systems, well-lighted entry and stairways, outside video security. Your family can be assured of privacy, safety, cleanliness and convenience. The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways with the nearest only a 2 block, 2 minute walk. All destinations are only a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Your private townhouse apartment will make you feel like your are returning home at the end of each day. Spacious enough to spread out and relax with all the conveniences of home: a fully equipped kitchen, high-def cable TV, free W-Fi, and, of course, big comfortable beds. Live your holiday like a successful New Yorker.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been to New York on several occasions and have stayed at hotels. Not only were the hotel rooms small, but the prices were steep. Because of this, I decided to rent an apartment. Ray's place far exceeded my expectations. Not only was it clean and comfortable, it was easy to access through public transportation. In addition, Ray was great about communicating with me and answering questions before my arrival.

My 20 year old son and I were greeted by Ray right outside the apartment. He quickly gave us a tour of the apartment and explained how everything worked. Ray even provided us a map that included the subway routes. We purchased a 7 day Metro Card for $30 and had no problem getting around the city. We even rode the train to New Jersey to attend a concert at MetLife Stadium. I also had the opportunity to get a run in a few blocks from the apartment. I asked Ray if there was a place where I could run. He directed me to Riverbank Park which was just a few blocks away. I ran a quick 4 miles and got some great pictures of the George Washington bridge. I never once felt threatened or scared while walking around the neighborhood even when my son and I were walking back to the apartment late at night after the concert.

On the day of departure, we met Ray to hand over the keys, and he offered to call a cab for us. We opted to ride the bus to LaGuardia airport from the apartment. It was a quick 2 block walk to the bus stop and one bus transfer to get there.

Our stay at Ray's apartment was such a pleasant experience. If I ever travel to New York in the future, I will definitely stay at his place again.

Customer 100% Satisfaction

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights with my wife & 2 children (aged 16 & 12). Firstly the whole booking procedure was very easy with the owner (Ray) responding very promptly to all email enquiries.
Directions to the apartment were very clear & we found the place easily. We were met on arrival by Ray who provided a very comprehensive introduction to the apartment, the surrounding neighbourhood & to downtown Manhatten. He even gave us a mobile phone (pre-programmed with his number) in case we got into difficulties - please note we loved NYC & never once felt threatened.
The apartment was scrupulously clean, well appointed & generously sized. The photographs on the website don't really do the place justice, take our word for it the place is excellent.
The master bedroom is brilliant & the bed very comfortable. All the bed linen & towels were provided & were of very good quality. The local neighbourhood is full of all the things you need (grocery stores, take away food, cafes, banks etc). During the day it was busy & cosmopolitan. At night it was even more lively, with a large group of locals (both young & old) congregating on the corner to chat, sing, play music & fire up the BBQ. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway this might not be the place for you but we loved it & we never ever felt anything other than 100% safe even quite late at night. The music outside went on until 11pm most nights but it was never so loud as to provide much nuisance. We really liked the flexibilty of the apartment (a seperate bedroom for the grown ups) & two additional beds in the living area so both our kids could have their own beds without having to share.
Travel into downtown Manhatten was very easy, the subway just 2 bocks away (5 mins walk) & we could be in Times Square in 15-20 mins. The 7 day Metro Pass - unlimited subway & bus travel (as recommended by Ray) is superb value.
Really we could hardly fault the apartment or its location. Ray was a fantastic host & certainly helped us get the most out of our stay. He was flexible in letting us arrive early on the first day to drop off bags so we were free to go explore the city. On out last day he helpful let us stay a wee bit longer while I went into town to organise some car hire. We really appreciated this flexibility & fely like Ray really valued our custom.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting NYC (including friends & relations).

Owner's Response: My guests visited during the July 4 Independence Day week-end. There were neighborhood BBQs and street fairs all over the city. It is traditionally a noisy week-end.

The neighborhood is ordinarily quiet and family oriented. In fact, my apartment has often been used for romantic getaways, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries.

NYC is an exciting city. Come enjoy everything!

Ein stilvolless und sehr gepflegtes Apartement

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren mit 3 Personen das erste Mal in NY und haben Rays Apartement ausgewählt. Wir waren sehr begeistert. Die Wohnung entsprach genau der Beschreibung. Wir fühlten uns wie zu Hause. Die Einrichtung ist schön und sehr gepflegt. Auch die Lage ist optimal um Manhattan zu erkunden. Gefallen hat uns auch der nette persönliche Empfang von Ray und seine Hilfsbereitschaft. Wir werden sicher gern einmal wiederkommen!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with this apartment and its owner Ray. As many have already said in other reviews, the apartment was extremely clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our family of 4 for a week in NYC. (2 adults, 2 preteens) It was bigger than I imagined and looks identical to the online pictures. Ray met us with the keys and a very helpful subway/attraction map of Manhattan that was our Bible for the week! He was also able to store our luggage on our last day so we could still see the city until our flight that night, and even called a taxi for us to be ready to take us back to the airport. The neighborhood was family friendly and inviting; grocery stores on the next block and 2 blocks to a main subway line. I still can't believe how quiet it was at night and I'm a light sleeper! We will definitely be back and I've given this contact to all of our friends coming to the city.

Amazing apartment in an amazing city

  • 4 of 5
We are a family of four (including two children aged 7 and 9) and we had a brilliant time during our stay in this apartment. The apartment was immaculately clean, very comfortable and beautifully appointed and it was ideal for our 6 day stay in NYC. All our dealings with the owner were fast and efficient prior to our stay, and he was immensely helpful upon our arrival, recommending a great local restaurant who also sold great espresso coffee. The nearby grocery store and subway station an easy 2 blocks away meant getting into Midtown each day very simple. We always felt very safe as there is always people around, even when we came home late a few times.
New York is the city that never sleeps but the apartment, despite being in a lively neighborhood, is quiet and was a perfect retreat after our days of sightseeing. I would certainly recommend staying here if you want to be in Manhattan, but also need a bit of an escape from the hustle and bustle of Downtown.

Our wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our apartment in this beautifully kept townhouse. It was a great base for our nearly 2 week stay. The neighbourhood is lively and colourful and yet very quiet in the late evening. All amenities are close by, from groceries to pharmacies to restaurants and the very convenient #1 subway line is just a couple of blocks away. Ray is a great host and so helpful and informative. We arrived in the early morning, well before our check in time, and he not only graciously stored our luggage for us, he texted us while we were out and about to let us know that our apartment was ready an hour and a half earlier than expected. Ray again stored our luggage on check out day as we had an evening flight.
I would highly recommend this property for a clean, comfortable, convenient stay that allows you to immerse yourself in the New York experience. We look forward to our next visit!

Enjoyable Stay!

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed during our stay. Ray was helpful with subway information. The subway is nearby. It was nice to have a roomy place to come back to after sightseeing. We had 4 people in our group and had plenty of room. We drove and there was limited parking on the street if that is a concern for you. But overall a nice apartment in NYC. Thanks for hosting our family!
