Manhattan Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Prewar Elevator, Doorman building with gym access. The studio is adorable: beautiful wood floors, two big windows facing a tree, sky and small street. The apartment faces south so it gets beautiful sun light. Queen size bed for two. Down pillow, down comforter, and fresh clean white sheets. Fully equipped kitchen to cook. Comfortable sofa and reading chair by window. Small cute dinning area for two people. Clean bathroom with a huge bath tub for two. Clean towels, nice soaps and shampoo. Lots of hot water and great water pressure. All my neighbors are very friendly and they will most likely smile at you and say hello. You will feel like you live here. You will get the best customer service. The doorman will do anything for you. I will be in downtown and provide any information you need so you can have the most pleasant stay.

About Timothy Mendes

I have traveled all over the world. When I am in a city and I am staying in a place that has bueatiful natural sunlight, a view, and is bueatiful and cozy I feel so much better. I can really enjoy that city even more. That is what I wanted to create for tourist comming to New york. My studio is bright, cheery, and I is a wonderful place to wake up in the morning and start the day

Timothy Mendes purchased this studio in 2009

Why Timothy Mendes chose Manhattan

I choose to buy a vacation home in Midtown Manhattan because of the location. I love having everything so close by. The theater district, Central Park , Brian Park, 42nd St Library. I love knowing that I can be anywhere in 10 minutes: whether it's to Greenwhich Village or the farmers market or to museum mile. Everything is close by. You are there in

What makes this studio unique

I love the doormen here they are so friendly, I love the gym. I use it everyday. I love getting lots of sunlight. I love coming hope and taking a long bathtub. I love reading a book on my comfortable chair near the window. The best thing I like is my queen size bed. It is so comfortable. I love waking up and seeing the trees and sky.

great location, great host

  • 5 of 5

The studio is just as described: sunny, clean and perfectly located east of midtown. It is on the 6th floor and quiet by NYC standards. The building gym is small but clean, and was either empty or had 1-2 other users when I went. The location of the studio is very convenient to the subway and Grand Central Terminal (5 minute walk), and there are great little eateries and coffee shops within 1-2 blocks. Tim was extremely hospitable and responsive, and kindly allowed us to check in early (at 7 am!) since we arrived on a red-eye from LA and the previous occupants had checked out the day prior. I will definitely try to stay here on future trips to NYC.

Perfect Studio, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We recently went to NYC, and were hesitant to do the home-away thing at first. I reached out to Tim, and was immediately put at ease, he is very helpful, thoughtful and will take the time to answer your questions. Upon arrival Tim was waiting curbside, helped us take our bags up and show us the unit. He had travel books, and maps there for us as well, you could tell that he loved this neighborhood as he told us about all his favorite hotspots around the unit. He told us about the surrounding neighborhood and showed us how to get to Grand Central to get started.

The location is very central in midtown, honestly you're just as close as most of the hotels down there, you are very close to grand central, Times Square, and all the main roads, we were able to get wherever we wanted in the city very quickly thanks to Grand Central being less than a 10 minute walk away. There are tons of restaurants nearby, a grocery store to stock up on snack and waters, and some great bagel shops that we went to for breakfast every morning.

As for the unit, it was very nice, we really only used it to sleep and get ready, so we didn't spend a lot of time there, but for our purposes it was perfect. The kitchenette is small, but it has a stove, microwave and a fridge, perfect for leftovers or keeping your drinks nice and cold! It was so nice to be able to come "home" after a day of exploring and being able to sleep on a comfortable bed, after a hot shower.

We would definitely stay there again, between Tim, the unit was very affordable, and the location, we honestly couldn't ask for more. Thanks again Tim!

Outstanding Mid-Town Flat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this great mid-town NY flat to attend the US Open and spend 5+ days touring around Manhattan and nearby areas. We like to walk a lot and this location is perfect - centrally located and convenient to all directions. The flat was very clean, quiet (especially for its location in downtown NY), and Tim (our host) was always responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

Near Grand Central Station

  • 5 of 5

The host, Tim, met us and gave us an excellent briefing on the apartment and the area. He was very responsive to any problem or inquiry. We were pleased to see that the apartment was both light and airy. We were looking out the window at a tree not another building. It is an older building with some quirks however, including a bathroom door that can't be closed and steps down into the lobby. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return or recommend it to others who use mass transit or enjoy walking.

Fantastic location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything you have read is true! What you see in the photos is what you get. Clean, airy, great sunlight and a window that opens which is a bonus (and a tree outside. Rare thing for NY!!). Tim is a great guy and met us on arrival giving us a rundown on the apartment. There were fresh flowers which was lovely. He walked with us to the subway and got our ticket for us. He answered all emails and texts promptly and is always available if you need anything. There is a gym and laundry room and It works by using a card which Tim will give you. You just add money on it and use the machines, simple.

The apartment is really clean and that was the main thing for me. There are lots of cleaning products there for use during your stay if needed. Ample cupboard space for hanging clothes and drawers as well. Kitchen had all you need. Great water pressure in shower and the bed is the most comfy bed I have slept in in a hotel/apartment and that's saying something cause I am in hotels all the time with my job.

The location is fantastic, three short blocks from Grand Central Station and great for first time visitors to NY. You can walk to Bryant Park, Empire State Building, Times Square, Broadway and so much more.

Thanks so much Tim, the apartment was fantastic.
