Enter the apartment via the ground floor private gated entrance. Upon arrival you will find yourself in an entry foyer with an area to hang your coats and keep your shoes. Walk a few steps down the hall and you will find yourself in the large open kitchen / dining /living area that opens onto the private decked backyard. You will also find one full bathroom and one bedroom on the ground level.

Perfect Place for Our Stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

My buddies and I come to New York every March. We came across this rental three years ago and have looked to rent it each year since. Clean, well-maintained, great layout, big bedrooms, and convenient for all of our favorite bars and restaurants in NY as well as Times Square and Madison Square Garden. Lisa made the check in and check out process totally effortless and was always quick to get back to us with any questions we had. We are already looking forward to staying there again in 2017!

Spacious clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

Family of 2 adults and 3 kids aged 13, 11 and 9 plus an adult friend. We all had heaps of space to ourselves and a massive outdoor area which is unheard of in New York. The property was exactly as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Only complaint we had was that the heating was set way to high as we found it difficult to sleep at night.

Other than that we would recommend this to anyone looking at staying in NYC. A few blocks walk to Times Square, local shops and restaurants all around which was very handy indeed.

home from home in the centre of New York

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for a group of people or in our case a family. We have 3 teenage kids who thought they had gone to heaven when we arrived. They had their own spacious and charming bedroom with beautiful fireplaces and large comfortable beds. All the bedrooms were clean and well appointed. The large kitchen/living area was a great refuge after trooping around the sites. The sofa accommodated us all! The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we even found an iPhone adapter which was a life-saver, as we only brought one and had about seven devices between us all. The apartment could not be better located. We were able to walk to many of our destinations and there is a subway very near by. There is a wide range of restaurant to choose from within walking distance and if you run out of anything at all, you can find a shop that sells it within a couple of minutes walk. The apartment is very near Times Square, which our teenagers loved walking down. It is everything you imagine New York will be; noisy, bright, buzzy, fully of busy people and yellow taxis. Lisa was very easy to get in touch with and got back to me almost immediately. She is very accommodating and the information provided by her is comprehensive and accurate. We visited many sites, though there is so much to do, many were left for another day. We loved the top of the Rock, strolling through an extremely cold Central Park, the bus trip downtown, wandering the streets of Soho, visiting the 9/11 memorial, the Met, the Frick and the Empire State. We also went to see Matilda, which we would highly recommend. It is within walking distance of the apartment. We had many a fantastic breakfast, which set us up for the day. It was also unbelievably cold when we arrived at -14 and we were worried the apartment would be cold. It wasn't. It was a perfect cosy refuge from the cold. I couldn't recommend the apartment more. It is beautiful, well managed and maintained and in an incomparable location. Thank you Lisa. I hope we return one day.

Convenient and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lower apartment in this building. Four big bedrooms, two complete bathrooms, well furnished kitchen with a big table for meals, big fenced back patio area, two floors, spacious common living area. We especially enjoyed having code lock gates and entry door as we did not have to worry with sharing keys among nine people. The stairs between floors are steep and not every room has a window, but that was not a problem for us. It is an old, quiet residential building within easy walking distance of Times Square and of all of the plays which we went to see. There are numerous groceries with in a three block area, from large to small. Lots of restaurants, a large RiteAid pharmacy, Starbucks, other shopping and a fascinating neighborhood. Cabs abound in the big cross streets and the subway access is close by, too. Nice linens, lots of towels. A very satisfactory base of operations for our stay.
