Serene luxury in NYC

  • 5 of 5

My six adult children and I enjoyed a perfect weekend visit, gathering from all over the US to converge in this most beautiful home in one of the prettiest neighborhoods in New York. I didn't know it was possible for the city to be so quiet! This was a magical stay, exceeding expectations in every way.

Thank you so much to Lainie and family for your gracious hospitality, including providing restaurant recommendations and groceries for our arrival!

We slept like babies and enjoyed each other's company in the beautiful livening room and patio.

Peaceful and beautiful oasis in the Big Apple!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this modern and beautifully decorated home. The owner was hospitable and accommodating. I had lots of questions before our trip. She was very helpful! The home is close to the subway, Central Park, The Met, and endless food and shopping! And by the way...the house is the cleanest lodging I've ever stayed in in my life!! Thanks to the owner and her family for a wonderful city break!

Gorgeous Townhouse just off Central Park on UWS

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and enthusiastically give this chic townhouse a 5 star rating! The townhouse is light, big, private, and quiet. The main floor has the feel of a loft and was perfect for hanging out and family style dinners. The terrace and the beautiful garden are an extra plus. It was so nice to have a glass of wine in the garden at the end of the day after running around the city.

I also really appreciated being so close to Central Park -- made running in the city easy and fun. Also the basketball hoop in the townhouse garden was a plus with my husband and kids.

Cannot say enough great things about the hosts -- so helpful with advice and suggestions. They arranged for food shopping before we arrived so the refrig was filled with breakfast and snack food that my kids would eat.

Lastly, an important bonus was the proximity to subways. All in all, we had a wonderful trip and highly recommend this New York getaway.
