Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise to find a charming apartment in the heart of upper west side historic district. The apartment is beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained. I stayed here for 2 weeks on business. My family visited on a weekend and also loved the place. Especially my son who is a dinosaur fan (short walking distance to the museum). Though the neighborhood has a lot to offer - restaurants, shops, and museums, it was nice to come "home" after a busy day. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. Would strongly recommend this place to anyone!

Fantastic host in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days in the centre of NY - fantastic apartment & a lovely helpful host. The apartment was clean & quiet, looks out over a private courtyard, so a bit of space which is nice. Very well equipped and roomier than expected for a one BR - we stayed with our 3 kids (incl two teens) and were well accommodated. The location is excellent - near to Central Park, & Natural History Museum, walking distance to the Met and Gugg, with lots of eating, coffee and shopping opportunities also in walking distance - Colombus, Amsterdam & Broadway. 2 mins to subway easy travel in any direction, so a great home base. Also plenty of food stores so we cooked in a lot which is a great option with kids. Highly recommend this stay - the owner is very professional, prompt response and accommodating, was a breeze to organise and a pleasure to stay! (Upper West Side, not east side as in title)

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

We actually had reserved this apartment but just before we arrived the city found cracks on the façade and it was wrapped in netting for repair. We were changed to the other property in back as a courtesy to us. While I saw that the original bathroom had counter space which was the only reason we picked it between the two, the one we ended up in may have been better since it faced the back and was extremely quiet. (I'm sure the front one would have been fine since the street is itself quiet). Though asked earlier, we were told the address and meeting arrangements about two days before arrival. Mark (very nice and helpful) met us, showed us around and helped set up the internet. On entering the building, the look is decidedly unglamorous and worn but the apartment was lovely. Nicely furnished, well equipped, clean, and the bed and linens very comfortable. Being just off Central Park West, the location is perfect if you want to get away from crowds and spend time in the park as we did every day. Lots of great restaurants in the area and a quick one block walk to hop on a subway for anything else. This was only our second trip to NYC and we would definitely recommend staying at either of these properties and would do so again ourselves.

I had an idea that I chose a good location but not until we woke up the next morning, was it clear just how good it was! The host, Michel, was not visible until we needed help with internet connection, for example, and then he promptly solved the problem. He turned out to be most pleasant and polite and helpful. That made a huge difference. He took the trouble to come and say "good bye" before we were about to leave.

The flat was just so comfortable and quiet and pleasant, down to the satin sheets and the very full equipment. It felt simply like a home. I would go back there any time!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

This Upper West Side NYC Manhattan apartment is a great deal! The apartment is beautiful, with a small balcony over looking a garden, full kitchen, decently-sized bathroom, lots of closet space, comfortable bed, and the location is perfect. We took a car from the airport and didn't get in a car again until we went back to the airport. The subway is a two-minute walk from the front door. You can walk to Central Park in less than 5 minutes. If you want to ride a bike, there is a bank of them to borrow/rent at the end of the street. If jumping in a taxi is how you plan to get around... it's a minute away from Central Park West, where you can find a cab at any hour. The Brownstone Beauty is right out of a movie. Restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and shops all within walking distance. The neighborhood is gorgeous. If you are looking for a NYC experience, send this owner a message and see if this NYC apartment is available for your stay! I can't wait to go back.
