Excellent location to enjoy New York's daily life

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 4 friends travelling to NY in October 2009. We had choosed the apartement for its central location + its reasonable price. Located on the Lexington av. a few blocs from the Empire State B, and more closer to a subway station, approximatively 20 to 30 min walk from Time Square, the appartement fits perfectly for first timers in the Big Apple as well as for more experienced tourists in NY. We felt at home in this really spacious appartement and especially enjoyed the open kitchen and dining room, the bedrooms and bathrooms. It is the perfect place to relax after museum, shopping, to have a break before getting out again for the evening... The neighboroughood offers everything needed to jump into the daily life of New Yorkers. And, Lucia, the owner, is allways ready to help her guests.

En résumé, pour les lecteurs francophones : un appart vraiment spacieux (2e étage sur 3), très bien situé, très bon quartier, confortable (chambres et salles de bain très bien). Et une hôtesse accueillante et serviable.

Turning 60 weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place to spend the weekend celebrating sixty years of life and forty one years of friendship! Convenient location in a great neighborhood, with lots of taxis, restaurants, deli with convenience items, and short walk to subway. The apartment is stocked with plenty of linens, kitchen appliances and gadgets, and entertainment center. My four college "sisters" and I felt safe and comfortable. Plenty of sleeping spaces and two bathrooms made our downtime and transitions from one outing to the next stress-free. Carrying luggage up three flights of stairs was not fun but did not detract from the overall positive experience. I would stay here and use the Vacation Rental By Owner service again.

Comfy and fun Lexington Avenue theatre adventure

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of 5 and enjoyed the spacious, light, comfortable and clean apartment. The owner and her assistant were very responsive and helpful. The apartment was immaculate. The walk up stairs give you exercise to walk off all those vacation calories! We were worried about traffic noise but it wasn't bad - consider it ambience or wear ear plugs if you aren't used to city noise. The location is fantastic, close to the subway but also an easy 20 minute talk to Times Square.

So much space!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this apartment to meet our friends from Denmark for a week in NYC. The space was amazing. Two large bedrooms and bathrooms on either side of the apartment separated by the kitchen and living room. Great for two couples or families who want to spend time together and still have some privacy. Plenty of supplies in the kitchen to enjoy meals and a great little authentic Italian restaurant next door. The location was terrific! Close enough to walk to plenty and only a couple of blocks to the metro. Outdoor patio in the heart of Manhattan was such a great bonus! We would definitely stay here again!

NYC Trip- September 2015

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and I was pleasantly surprised to find someone there to let us in (had heard all sorts of stories where this doesn't happen)- that was a relief. The walk up with luggage was a bit of a struggle to the 4th floor- but, the view , the location, the amenities were all more than worth it all. We ate at restaurants on that block - the Italian one across the street (Pizza place) was great and the one right down stairs- another Italian was fantastic too. Stores nearby provided breakfast foods, subway , buses and taxi's were plentiful- we used UBER for the first time to return tot he airport- that worked great too. Even the pope's visit was nearby too. And, with Lucia just a phone call away if anything arose, we were well taken care of- coffee was there too, starbucks was just 2 blocks away.... didn't get a chance to use the balcony , but maybe next time.... I sent out quote requests to 10 places, and Lucia responded quickly and we settled the details in a few short emails... No need for a car in NYC- we actually walked most places (good exercise)...

bel espace à deux pas de l'Empire State Building

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 10 jours fin mars 2015 à 5 adultes dans cet appartement.

Il est composé d’une cuisine à l’américaine meublée et équipée, d’un salon et espace repas, d’une chambre côté rue un peu bruyante (mais la literie de qualité et grand format nous a permis de très bien y dormir). Une deuxième chambre avec 6 couchages potentiels est meublée de deux lits 140 et d’un lit gigogne en 90. La pièce est vraiment très spacieuse et donne sur une terrasse bien agréable en plein NY. Deux salles de bain/ douche / WC complètent le tout.

La station de métro la plus proche se trouve sur la 28th rue. Dans la 34th rue passent les bus qui desservent NY d’est en ouest. A un ¼ d’heure de marche Grand Central : vous pouvez de là, entre autres, partir en train vers la petite ville de Beacon et visiter son musée d’art contemporain (coût 75 $ pour 2 aller-retour et billets musée avec le « one day get away »).

Côté restos dans le quartier nous avons testé 2 indiens (pas top), un petit mexicain la cantina (proche angle 31th et 2nd av) est sympa, les pizza du Vezzo sont très bonnes et on peut les emporter.

Pour les courses le super marché le mieux achalandé est Fairway situé à l’angle de la 30th et 2nd av (à 5mn à pied de l’appartement). Eataly est un magasin d’alimentation à découvrir.
