The Empire State building, Madison Square Garden, Times Square and Javits Center are within walking distance, so are the Chelsea piers, Manhattan's biggest sports complex and the Meat Packing District, New York's ultra-hot nightlife/fashion/restaurant neighborhood. New York City's newest attraction the elevated Highline Park is only steps away.

The kitchen, like everything else, is brand new is brand new with stainless steel appliances. It is perfect for a couple or single traveler. The central location combined with the privacy and quiet make this apartment very special.

Be back in a heartbeat - Matt & Deanna, Toronto

  • 5 of 5

I have never been one to write a review for vacation accommodation, but after spending just under a week at Michael & Catherine’s lovely Chelsea studio I felt strongly compelled to share my thoughts of my experience. It was the first time to New York for my girlfriend and I as a couple (we had both been several times on our own) so had already done the so called touristy things, this time we wanted to experience living like real New Yorkers. The amazing location of the studio certainly did help with this; we were in walking distance to everything we wanted to. Close to great restaurants and café’s.

The room itself was very tastefully decorated and was extremely clean on arrival. The view from the studio was quite special, it was just of a little garden but I thought that was quite special and unique for downtown Manhattan. The bed was very comfortable and was just perfect after the long hours we spent on our feet discovering Manhattan again.

Both my fiancé and I (I proposed at the end of our trip) would come back in a heartbeat and have not stopped praising the place to friends and family.

Beautiful Apartment - Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

At the 11th hour our VRBO reservation was cancelled because of repairs - Yikes! Fortunately Michael quickly responded to our request to stay and we were able to move on with our day. I have used VRBO 4 times in New York and this is the 1st time the accommodations were as advertised. The apartment is perfectly furnished and if you wanted to cook, everything was supplied. The garden view from all windows was beautiful and calming after being out in the city all day. The location was safe and close to great restaurants and the Highline - which is a must experience! Big plus, there was Catherine to greet us and Michael responded to all questions via email/text - again quickly. Definitely would stay here again.

Birdsong in New York

  • 5 of 5

While I booked the garden apartment, this review is for the penthouse unit in the same building. For a variety of reasons, I wound up upgrading to it. Perfect spot. Treesy green outlooks, luxury finishes thoughtfully done. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. One of the best parts was the birdsong in the trees at either end the apartment each morning. Double pane windows provide fantastic sound insulation, although this is generally a block that does not suffer unusual noise. Only drawback for some might be three flights of stairs, but that is an easy hardship if you are reasonably fit.

Quaint charming garden apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was nestled in a great section of the lower west side just blicks from the Chelsea Market, the beautiful High Line, and the entrance to the subway. The apartment was quaint and included a garden view that is rare in the city. We were able to sleep with the windows open for our May stay and were woke by chirping birds and a garden waterfall from the backyard. The apartment had all of the necessities and was tastefully decorated. Michael, the owner, was more than gracious and the best & fastest communicator I've ever dealt with on Home a Way. He was friendly and social and really helped out with details about the city being a long time resident. This property is a definite repeat property next time we are in the city. A+.

Lovely stay in Chelsea!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getaway at Michael and Catherine's! They were so hospitable and welcoming. The apartment had all we needed. We were able to keep the windows up and listen to the birds and the murmurs of the lovely fountains in the courtyard below-totally serene. Will stay again!
