Wonderful host in a great location in Manhattan.

  • 4 of 5

Sylvia was a wonderful host and made our stay in Manhattan easy and incredibly comfortable. The apartment is very conveniently located to the subway, central park and taxi's out the front door continuously. Great views of Central Park and the apartment itself is relatively quiet (considering how busy New York is). Was fantastic to have Sylvia help us out with the subway and show us some of the highlights of Harlem. The unit itself is spacious, beautifully decorated and very, very comfortable. We enjoyed sharing with Sylvia and her charming pets and would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to New York.

Perfect Shared Apartment - Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently enjoyed Sylvia ' s apartment for 4 nights in NYC. It was our first VRBO shared living experience and proved to be a wonderful time. Sylvia was welcoming, kind, full of great advise and also very respectful of our space and privacy. The location of the apartment is outstanding; Central Park is directly across the street and there is easy access to the Metro Red lines 1,2, and 3 from the Central Park North station and Green Metro lines 4, 5 and 6 from the 110th Street station. We could not have asked for anything more to enjoy our time in NYC! It was wonderful to arrive at Sylvia's apartment as strangers, and leave as friends. A true testament to Sylvia's warm and relaxed nature!

Studding Upper East Side luxury accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a beautifully kept and immaculate place to stay. Every possible electrical appliance you could require is on hand, with a view across the street of central park. When we were there you could see the christmas tree lit up across the pond - very festive! With the 2 and 3 express subway lines you can get into central manhattan in less than fifteen minutes, and a few streets back you have the Lex line (6) to take you anywhere on the East Side. A few streets up are the Apollo and other jazz and RnB musical venues in Harlem to tickle your musical tastes. A week here didn't seem enough - we will be back!

lovely apartment, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, very clean, and tastefully and elegantly decorated, located next to the North end of Central Park (lovely for morning walks and jogs) and very convenient with access to subway stops. We had a private bedroom in the apartment shared with the owner, a well-traveled artist, who was very accommodating and fun to get to know. Although it does not offer the anonymity of a hotel, it is a great alternative to a much pricier hotel, and we highly recommend it.

Super location in Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

My doughter and I we stay for a week : the apartment is confortable, spacious and with a super view on Central Park. The owner and her two nice friends were really careful for every needs. The apartment is well located just close to the bus stop and the Subway. The apartment is really clean and well heated and with a fantastic soul and jazz music allaround.what we could have more?On sunday morning is really nice to do a short walk in central park or have a brunch in Harlem !! We really enjoy to stay and to spend some good time with the owner...we will like to come again and stay more time!! Really recommended

Sono stata con mia figlia una settimana e l'appartamento é molto bello: luminoso, spazioso con una vista superba su Central Park. La padrona di casa con i suoi due amici è fantastica, simpatica e casa é vicina alle fermate della metro e dei bus...cosa si vorrebbe di più a Manhattan ? Inoltre la casa é pulita e ben riscaldata, e durante il giorno la padrona di casa offre una piacevolissima musica jazz and soul di sottofondo!! Ci torneremmo volentieri anche per un soggiorno più lungo.Vivamente consigliato.
