Times Square is a nearby 20 minute sightseeing walk.

2 blocks away is the West Side Highway, which is very popular with joggers, cyclist, rollerblading and all activity enthusiasts. The 'HIGHLINE' is 4 short blocks away and the 'heliport' is in walking distance as well if you are interested in sightseeing by helicopter.

PLEASE ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRES - * CALENDAR IS ACCURATE - CHECK BEFORE EMAILING*

APARMENT SIZE.: Many apartments in this price range cannot deliver the space or the convenience of location that this apartment delivers.

This apartment is very spacious which means added comfort when travelling. Why stay in a 1 room studio apartment when you can enjoy the luxury of having a large space to stretch out in. Also step out the front door and take great hotos of the Empire State Building which is located right up the road.

!!!! PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR !!: PLEASE CONSULT THE CALENDAR BEFORE CONTACTING OWNER. OVERLAPPING REQUEST OF DATES ON THE CALENDAR WILL NOT GET A RESPONSE!!

Review Submitted: March 7, 2009 Date of Stay: February 2009

Hi Everybody.

Me and my 3 friends stayed in Jon´s apartment for 4 nights. We were travelling from Germany and were very tired when we arrived. But at the time we saw the apartment the hard trip was nearly forgotton. Nice music was running, beautiful lights were on, it was warm and some cool water was in the fridge. The apartment is bigger than it appears on the pictures and even nicer. There is a separate bedroom and a nice living room with an open kitchen. The bathroom can be reached from the living room and the bedroom, so if you are travelling with more than 2 people you still don´t have any problems with that. What else is to say: the apartment has wireless internet, a TV, a DVD-Player with DVDs, books and a lot of magazines. In the kitchen is everything you need for cooking and eating at home. And best to mention is that the penn station, the empire state building, macys and a lot more is only some minutes of walk away. Accept for going downtown we never needed the subway.

We were totally happy with the apartment and we really recommend this place!

So, thank you again Jon! If we are visting NYC again, we will be glad to stay at your apartment.

NY Stay

Review Submitted: September 2, 2010 Date of Stay: July 2010

I was very skeptical. I was in North Carolina renting over the internet in NY City. We had friends going with us and I felt responsible. I am happy to tell you that all of the above reviews are true! There were 5 of us and we felt there was plenty of room for the money! If you want to feel like you really are living in the city stay at Jon's place.

If you get as lucky as we did he will even greet you on the street as you arrive!! and then in a city as big as NY you may run into him at Times Square! Thanks Jon for making our stay a great one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jon:

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful apartment with us. It truly allowed us to experience New York outside the walls of "Hotels".



We have had a wonderful time here is New York and fitted in as much as we possibly could in 6 days. Although it was cold, it was nice to come home to a cozy, warm apartment.



All our Best wishes & Kind regards,

Julie, Carissa, Samuel, Abby & Mackenzie

Hot Smelly Dirty Aptment

  • 1 of 5

The first night we stayed in the apartment the window unit A/C in the living room stopped working. Unfortunately in the bedroom, no air conditioning was felt, so we had to open the window for air circulation. It was very noisy, you were able to hear sirens, car honking and dump trucks picking up trash. My husband and I were not able to sleep throughout the night, with the noise going on outside.

On Saturday morning, I found a roach on the living room floor. After killing the roach it was clear to my husband and I that the apartment was not properly cleaned nor did it resemble the description that we initially saw when booking the rental unit. The apartment was dirty to the point where it felt unsanitary to walk barefoot. The host provided towels and slippers however, the slippers were old and used and the apartment also had a strange smell.

Upon finding the cock roach in the living room, we called at 7:21am the owner to inform him of our concerns. I left a message on his voice mail, informing him of the A/C not working in the apartment and for him to reach me at a better time. We did not hear from him and called him again at 11:01am and left another message on his voice mail.

Since we had not heard from the owner. We proceeded to move out of the location and went to a hotel at 2pm. Since there was no air conditioning in the unit and it was hot and dirty we decided we could not spend another night at this location.

Once we checked into the hotel, my husband called the owner for the third time, on his personal cell phone which had a different number. It wasn't till then that the owner finally answered the phone.

We explained the situation of the A/C not working and finding the roach in the living room. The owner offered to bring in a new A/C, however my husband stated his concerns for the roach, stating if there is one roach and was surely to be more. During the phone conversation with my husband, the owner overheard myself talking to a hotel employee and became upset.

It was strange to see that the owner would not answer my phone but when my husband called, from a different phone number he would answer. I used my cell phone to communicate with the owner throughout the booking process and also, texted the owner on my cell phone when we landed at the airport. The owner very familiar with my cell phone number. He never returned any calls in which my cell phone was used.

Also there was no cable and no curtains in the bedroom.

Location Location Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a girls weekend in the Big Apple and Jon's apartment met all our needs. It slept 4 of us very comfortably, close to all the shopping and nice to have a full kitchen. Jon was easy to work with and responded in a timely manner when I had questions before the visit. The location is close to good restaurants and if you don't mind walking , Time Square.It is close to the subway which we used a few times and found the locals to be very helpful. I suggest Uber for getting around the city too. Having the doorman felt safe, especially coming in late at night. Great Weekend! Thanks, Jon

Great Place & Very Accommodating Owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described and more. We met relatives in town & spent most afternoons hanging out at this location to relax. Comfortable, clean and bright. Location was perfect. Walking distance to many restaurants as well as to the Highline. And the owner, Jon, was very accommodating especially in dealing with our incoming flight being late and our outgoing flight being delayed. He was only a text message away. Thanks for everything.

Great rental, wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This rental was an excellent place to stay during our convention and the owner has hospitality that is hard to match. The apartment was just what we needed, comfortable and was in a convenient location. The owner is very pleasant and was easy to reach with a text message or a call. It is very spacious for Manhattan and housed 5 adults comfortably. There are a few parking garages within 1 block of the building so we drove in to town and had our car handy when we needed it.

Owner's Response: Mr. Di Thank you so much for selecting my place to stay while in NYC, and for the truly amazing review. I strive to make all things perfect for you travellers. But to give you some credit, you TOY guys have childlike qualities in that you were all so gracious, even for the little things. I wish you much success in the toy business and hope to cross paths again. Regards, Berry.

Nice rental really well located

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days in this nice and comfortable appartment. Everything was all right : it's clean and really closed to Times Square & other great attractions. Subway is only 5 minutes away. Jon was really friendly and provided everything we needed. This apt enabled us to visit NYC quietly. Good adress and nice owner. Thank you Jon for your hospitality. We'll come back.
