Me and my friend stayed in this apartment for 5 nights during the winter (we spent our New Year's eve quietly in this chic apartment - drinking wine, eating pizza and watching the ball drop on TV). It's a perfect place to relax after a long tiring day in Manhattan. The neighborhood is very peaceful which is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The place is complete with everything you could ask for. Tony gave us maps and lists of places/restaurants which are really helpful for first timers in New York like us. They also gave us free coffee, tea, popcorn, etc. The bathroom is complete with toothbrush, toothpaste, robes, towels, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, etc as well. Tony told us that they want their guests to feel like they are staying in a five start hotel and he's totally right. We stayed in a hotel in DC a night before staying in this apartment and I could say that our stay at Tony and Gerri's was better than the one we had in the expensive hotel. The apartment also had a TV that is complete with premium channels, and a laptop. The kitchen is also complete with everything you need for cooking. We bought some groceries in the deli just half a block away from the apartment and cooked our breakfast everyday (we saved a lot of money!). Tony made sure we got everything we need and checked on us in the mid of our stay to ask if we need anything - they were very thoughtful. I booked this apartment basing on the reviews and it did not disappoint. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I'd definitely stay in this place again when I go back to New York and will tell all my family and friends to book this apartment when they visit the NYC.
Thank you again, Tony and Gerri! You are amazing hosts. This is our first time to stay in a vacation home rental and I must say that you guys set the bar high for our next hosts. :)
