Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This charming one bedroom has received rave reviews from renters in the first years of being on the rental market. It is not only located half a block from Central Park on a beautiful, tree-canopied street on the Upper West Side...it also has its own private and spaceous backyard garden!

A perfect romantic getaway, this apartment is also great for business trips and vacations to NYC for up to 4 people, even in winter. Available for long weekends or weekly rentals only.

This NON-smoking apartment has a 52" HD flat screen tv with expanded cable, air conditioning, high speed internet access, recessed lighting with dimmers, nice furniture, full-equipped kitchen, hardwood floors, queen-size bed in the bedroom, plus a futon foldout (double). Linens are provided as well.

Make your reservation now... as you probably have discovered that it is rare to find a quality apartment in a great neighborhood with private outdoor space in NYC.

When you respond make sure to include your phone number and I will get right back to you.

I also have plenty of reviews that I can provide, if needed.

About The Owner

I live this apartment half the time, so it is kept up very well. I am gone about half the time to my home in Cape May... and so I share it with others who want to come and enjoy NYC at its best.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Manhattan

The location is convenient to everything. Close to subways, close to shops and restaurants and the world-famous Central Park is just half a block away!

What makes this apartment unique

With the unique opportunity of a back yard in NYC, I have created a private seating area to get away from the busy streets and activity in NYC. Just steps away is a grocery, drug store, cleaners and everything else you would need to make your stay amazing!

Well located but sadly appointed

  • 2 of 5

It is a quiet location, with little street noise discernible, which is extraordinary for New York City. However, the tenants above sound as if they are moving furniture throughout the day, banging and scraping, thumping and jumping. We were happy the all-building heat was very efficient. It was however noisy heat from boilers that gurgled and snapped all night. The kitchen was fine with a gas range and refrigerator. The furniture is unfortunate. The bathroom was particularly sad with a weathered small round toilet seat, and the sink and shower were rudimentary. The bedroom is a little larger than the queen bed and the pillows didn't smell very well.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that these people did not have a pleasant stay at the garden apartment. I have tons of reviews that are raving, where people have been very happy. The furniture in the apartment is EXACTLY what is in the pictures. So they were informed what that would be prior to travel. As for the heat that does make occasional sounds (steam heat moving through pipes), and the fact that I have a toddler living above whom I hear about 30 minutes in an entire day (and I work from this apartment when I am in town... so I am there 90% of the time)... but clearly this couple would have been better of paying for an expensive hotel... not wanting to have the NY experience of being in an apartment. I wish them all the best and am sorry they were unhappy. IF they had let me know, I could have let them out of the rental. I want for people to be truly pleased, as so many are. Thanks.

A wonderful weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice, spacious apartment in a wonderful location. Larger than any NY apartment (or hotel room) I have stayed in. Host was very accommodating, and the cost was very reasonable.

Beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great neighborhood, mostly used the 86th St station to get to all our shows & other things downtown. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance & a nearby grocery store. We always felt safe walking back to the apartment @ night. Ron was very easy to work with & we had no problems getting into the apt even tho our flight was delayed. I would not recommend this for 4 adults, but we had 3 & it worked well.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for three nights in July 2016. Ron was very easy to communicate with and everything went smoothly. Transportation was easy and we used the M10 bus which ran along Central Park West and had a stop 1/2 block from the apt. We also used the 86th street metro which also ran along Central Park West. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood with residents walking with their children and dogs. Thanks for a great stay Ron.

Felt Like a New Yorker

  • 4 of 5

It was such a good experience to be staying as a local in a traditional Brownstone building. We arrived during a heatwave and was so grateful for the A/C and fan in the bedroom. The free WIFI was really useful. The location was perfect for Central Park and the shops and restaurants within walking distance. We used both subway stations and that wasn't too far to walk. The only negative we found was the need for TLC in the garden, maybe being English where our gardens are important to us to keep pretty and looked after influence our view on the outside area that could be more cared for. The bed was really comfy and we had no issues getting the key or any details from Ron when we needed them.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely comments. Sadly for the garden, in the spring it is covered in wild flowers and, then for a couple of weeks those are dying away before it gets redone for the summer months... and doesn't look as well kept. All the best to you...
