About the property

Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The apartment is located in one of the best neighborhoods of Manhattan. Within walking distance to Central Park, Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Natural History and subway stations. A peaceful, relaxing neighborhood close to all of the best in NYC. Restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, supermarkets, laundromats, and pharmacies all within two blocks.

This Studio apartment is located on West 69th Street between Columbus Ave and Broadway in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and linens are provided. The apartment is approximately 375 square feet. The apartment is a ground floor unit in an historic brownstone building. The unit is equipped with cable TV and internet access.

Sleeps two adults comfortably on a queen sized bed and can accommodate an additional two children on a pull out 'day bed'.

The other apartments in the building are occupied by long-term tenants, some who have lived in their apartments for over twenty years. It is a quiet building and not a place to stay if you want to party and play loud music. I own the building and use the studio unit with my family when we visit the city.

Authentic and surprising in all the right ways...

  • 5 of 5

We rented Barry's apartment for a long weekend in December. First, the location is terrific. Convenient to everything in Manhattan, this UWS neighborhood has a ton of charm and character, and is just peaceful enough. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. The building is secure and the area is safe. The apartment itself is a perfect little place to unwind after long days out on the town. Within a few days, I felt like I was coming home to MY neighborhood. The only negative is that there is occasional building noise from the other tenants coming and going, but you are going to get this anywhere and it was never more than a few seconds at a time.

Most importantly, I was a little skeptical of using VRBO but my experience with Barry was top notch. He was accessible from my very first inquiry and answered every question promptly along the way, while providing great accommodations. Staying here again would be an easy decision.

AMAZING! Perfect location, Perfect Owner, Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor studio apartment is perfect! The location is amazing. You are close to the subway, stores, groceries, Central Park, The Lincoln Center, and anything you need. Our family of 4, including two teenagers spent 4 days at the apartment and were very comfortable. I was able to cook full meals in the cute kitchen. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space. The apartment was clean, in a safe neighborhood, and quiet. We felt like we were living in the city! Remember you are in New York City so you may occasionally hear some street noise. Barry was so helpful and answered all our questions even when I overloaded his VRBO email. He was so kind and I so appreciate his very reasonable rate on this amazing apartment. I hope we get to stay again soon. Also, we drove from Virginia and had our car so we found a lot on 64th that if you make reservations is only $25 a day. You can go to and find lots anywhere in NYC. This was perfect for us to make sure our car was safe and we did not have to move it during our stay. Thank you Barry for giving this family a great Christmas vacation!

Comfortable apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very clean and in a quiet location. The bedding is super comfortable but pillows hard and flat. I would stay at the apartment again. Barry is very attentive to renter needs. Thanks for a great stay.

Why be a tourist? Live like a local!!

  • 5 of 5

This location is awesome! less than a 10 minute subway ride to all the Broadway theaters-yet walking distance to Trader Joe, Fairway, Zabars, Central Park and dozens of great local, decent priced restaurants. The host has prepared a multi page tour guide of the neighborhood-the apartment is everything you need to enjoy your stay in NYC. You can walk the area without massive crowds of Times Square You will immerse yourself in the actual city lifestyle- a real treat!!

Cozy efficiency in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed three nights in this wonderfully located efficiency apartment on the Upper West Side. Everything was as advertised, and all in all we truly enjoyed our stay. The owner, Barry, was very accommodating and was responsive to our texts and other communications. The room was right in the middle of everything - a five minute walk from the subway and 20 minute walk from Central Park. We were able to walk nearly everywhere and took the subway for the longer treks. The Upper West Side was lovely and felt very safe.

Our only qualm wasn't how small it was (we knew it was an efficiency going into it), it was the awkwardly situated bathroom. As a 6'0", 200 man, I could barely "fit" on the toilet which is squeezed in between the sink and door. The bed was uncomfortable and seemed to have a spine down the middle, forcing my wife and I to our respective sides.

Forget the downsides though... If you're looking for a well priced room in a fantastic neighborhood, minutes from everything, give this one your consideration.

Comfortable apartment in convenient and quiet location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is not 5 star but is very clean and cosy. It is very conveniently located near the Lincoln Centre and Central park. The subway is only 3 blocks away (5 mins walk). A great area for restaurants and for accessing other parts of Manhattan.

Barry the owner is extremely helpful and always willing to assist. Entry to the apartment is very easy and there are no problems with keys etc. Instructions for the apartment are very clear and there are no issues with the internet or TV. Will stay here again. Thank you for a great stay.
