Very nice accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the apartment's great location and the large living and dining room areas. The owner's representative was very helpful with accommodating leaving our luggage after checkout time while we went out to lunch before leaving the city. Thanks very much.

An Excellent Home Base!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 teenage daughters and I stayed for a week. Lucia was such a great host and made all of our communications easy. We loved the location and the space that the 2nd level suite offered for us. Each night, after many hours of site seeing throughout New York, we knew we had a large, comfortable space to return to. The girls are already asking when we can return! Best wishes Lucia and we can't wait to stay again.

Love this place and do not want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I still have our 3rd week left here and we are so in love with this home! I cannot say enough nice things about the home, the owner, Andy, the property manager and the whole experience. Beautiful place with the most home like comfortable feel. Lucua has been awesome about communication and Andy is just a delight to talk with. I live on the back patio! My 16 year old and I are here while she takes an art class and she loves it too. The front bedroom gives her privacy away from my back bedroom. We are huge theater fans and easy to get to/from the theaters from here. Close to so much and great neighborhood to explore. I am a runner so easy access to paths along both sides of Manhattan. So grateful to have this amazing place to call home during our NYC adventure. So grateful to Lucia and Andy for making our trip a joy.

A refuge in the city

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak well enough about this gem of a walk-up, though most of my comments will mirror what others have already noted: very spacious (by NY standards - HUGE), with a stocked kitchen, W/D, dining room (!), balcony, and ample room to spread out. The furnishings are comfortable and well-cared for. My kids (10 and 8) loved the front bedroom, with two beds and a view onto Lexington Avenue; and the master suite, with private bathroom and amazing patio balcony, offers a space "away". The owners are attentive and courteous in every way. The location in a vibrant, established neighborhood is central to the subway, and within walking distance of many must-see venues and tons of restaurants. It was so nice to come back at the end of each day to a place that felt like home - great for families and weary explorers alike. We were all amazed at what a lovely place it is, and we hope to make it our home base next time we visit NYC. Truly a gem!

Spacious and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for two couples/families--the front bedroom has two double beds. Bedrooms are at opposite ends of the apartment, affording privacy. Very-well-equipped kitchen; laundry and dishwasher facilities. Large, comfortable living and dining areas. Two blocks from subway, restaurants and bars nearby. Check-in and check-out were smooth with friendly staff. Owner was a pleasure to work with and accommodated our late check-out. We had a great time and expect to be back! An excellent value on top of it all!

Perfect set up

  • 5 of 5

My son and daughter in law and my two granddaughters (2 & 5) stayed here over Easter weekend. The place was perfect for us. The bedroom separated by the living room and kitchen was great when we were putting the kids to bed. Everything you need is there. Location is great-walkable to everything. We had 10 people for Easter dinner and it was a hit. Everyone loved the place. Planning on going back!!
