Our recent trip to NYC was made perfect by our choice to stay at this charming property. What a delightful home complete with comfortable furnishings, everything one could need for their stay, a little slice of "country" in the beautiful garden, and homemade cake upon arrival!! Wait, did I mention that there are two full baths in this apartment?!? You will find the home clean, well maintained, filled with lovely pieces, and sprinkled with whimsy. Oh, my…who could ask for more?!?!

The apartment is centrally located within a short walk to Starbucks, a grocery/convenience store, a laundry service, the subway, and quaint eateries to meet the taste of virtually everyone. We loved walking about the neighborhood and having a sense of really being a part of the city, versus simply a guest at a hotel.

Should you continue to have a doubt about booking this property, let me simply say that you will not find a more welcoming hostess!!! Joan greeted us upon our arrival (which was quite late at night!!) with the warmth of a long lost friend. Her grace, charm, and humor will make you feel as if you have known her your entire life. All the while, Joan is absolutely professional in all correspondences, answers questions in a very timely fashion, and makes every attempt to ensure your stay is all that you could wish for….

We will be back ~ frankly, I sorely wish we did not have to leave!!!!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO many times and have always been lucky to find places that suit our needs for the trip. Joan's place went beyond even that. The apt is exactly as pictured and Joan herself is extremely helpful. She has the apt setup for everything, I didn't even bring coffee! For NYC, you won't find a better place to stay. We'll be back! Thanks again Joan for everything!

Lovely, home like atmosphere in the middle of Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

Joan greeted and welcomed us to her charming home. The beds were comfortable and having 2 bathrooms was a plus for 3 seniors. Because of our busy schedule we were unable to take advantage of the lovely garden and the outdoor seating. We would definitely recommend this place and are hopeful of returning soon.

Even better than the description!

We just returned about 48 hours ago and had a delightful experience with the property and the surrounding area.

Everything pointed out in the other reviews we agree with, starting with Joan. She is not only very attentive but also a delightful person.

The apartment is well decorated and reflects the caring touches of Joan. .

And it's nice to have the convenience of a walk up garden apartment.

A very walkable area with everything you need nearby, including delis/groceries and dozens of dining experiences. One of Manhattan's best Italian restaurants – – Elio's -- is a very short walk up E. 84th. Many different bars/pubs are nearby that reflect the character of the UES.

Subway is just a few blocks away on East 86th, and we also used the cross town bus for quick access to museums and cafes and coffee bars near Central Park.

Owner's Response: Howard and Janet are a delightful couple. Positive and full of energy. Appreciative of every little detail. Very self sufficient and trust you enough to exercise your suggestions. We had a problem that I could not solve as fast as I wished, they were wonderful about it. They are the kind of people that you want to keep as friends. My apartment was left in pristine condition. They just make you want to hug them !!!!!!

Absolutely Splendid.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at Joan's place. It is located in a wonderful part of Upper Eastside Manhattan, which is close to transportation, along with an incredible array of restaurants. The place itself is cozy, warmly decorated and the garden is magnificent. Joan was warm and gracious as she met us at her apartment and showed us the ins and outs of the place itself and the Upper Eastside. She supplies her guests with all the luxuries of home, that included information about New York as well as menus from all sorts of menus from the area. You can eat in or dine out for every meal and not even leave the area, it is so rich with food. I highly recommend any visitor to use Joan's place as it is superior and more affordable than a hotel.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for five days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Joan, the owner, was very gracious an helped orient us to the apartment and the neighborhood. it was well equipped and well maintained. The only problem was trying to get confirmation of the reservation from VRBO. Joan and I ended up having to confirm the reservation on the phone since VRBO had some technical problems and could not confirm it.
