Overview

About the property

3 Bed/2 Bath Large Luxury Apartment With Patio In The Most Desirable Location

This place is incredible. When I got this place I wanted the best location, no neighbors on the same floor, lots of space, nice finishings and outdoor space. I wanted it all and I got it. Let's cover these one by one.

The location can't be beat. We are right next to Columbus Circle. That means you can get a quick train ride to anywhere in the city in less than 20 minutes. That said, you won't need a train to stay occupied as its right next to Central Park! You can walk to Times Square in less than 10 minutes. Its a Midtown address for you business travelers and shoppers. For the foodies, Hell's Kitchen is right there. For the museum lovers, we are right next to the Lincoln Center and the Upper West Side to reach the Natural History Museum and more.

No neighbors. This apartment is the entire floor of the building. There is no one else. Below it is an office so you don't have to worry about keeping anyone up at night and no one is there at all on the weekends.

The space is beautiful and huge. This is a completely renovated unit, completed in 2015. We had the whole floor gutted and rebuilt. All of the walls, floors, etc are brand new. It's a new place in an old building. Its the entire floor of the building. It's a true 3 bedroom. Beware of substitutes. Many in this city call their 2 beds, 3 beds. This is an actual 3 bedroom. All 3 bedrooms are very large by NYC standards. The living room is very spacious. Even the bathrooms are huge! It has around 1700 square feet or 188 square meters.

The finishings are all top of the line. Stainless steel appliances, beautiful name brand furniture (Pottery Barn and La-Z-Boy throughout), its all been thought of. Each room has a queen bed but there's also a sleeper sofa and two chairs which turn into beds which means there are 6 beds in all. The electronics are all as nice as you would expect in a place such as this. I stay here with my family during the summers so I spare no expense.

The outdoor space by NYC standards is huge. It has a patio! Do you know how rare that is? The patio has a dining table which seats 6.

This apartment is on the 3rd floor and is a walk-up. That means 2 flights of stairs. For you Europeans and Asians, that's the 2nd floor. The stairs aren't challenging but you need to know about them.

When I personally stay at other people's vacation rentals, I'm always disappointed by the quality of their supplies. You won't experience that with me. The kitchen supplies, the furniture, the towels, everything is top notch. We even have salon quality hair dryers!

Here are some other interesting features that stand out.

- One of the bathroom showers is also a steam room.

- We have recently spent Five Thousand Dollars on noise canceling windows. You will sleep like a baby.

- We have an Apple TV so you can stream NetFlix or use it to have presentations at your company meeting.

- The beds and the bedding are top of the line. You will be able to rest here.

About Rick Latona

I'm in the Internet Business as my day job. I've been doing it for about 20 years now.

I have a wife and two daughters and we all love to travel. The place we love the most is New York and I also come here a lot on business, so when I had an opportunity to get this place I jumped on it. I'm not in the real estate business. I just rent the contents out to help cover my cost.

Rick Latona purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Rick Latona chose Manhattan

As stated in my description, the size, style, location, etc are all just perfect. I looked at hundreds of places before finally landing on this one. I love this apartment and I know you will too.

What makes this apartment unique

Its very difficult to find a place this big and nice in this location for the price I'm offering. I'm sure if you have found this page and are looking at this listing, then you already know that's true.

The best thing about Columbus Circle is that you can get anywhere in Manhattan in 20 minutes or less. 1 block away you can get on 6 different trains, 3 of which are express trains. It's right next to Central Park and a close walk to Times Square. Its a premier address in NYC.

If you walk south, you are walking to Times Square and Midtown.

If you want west, you are heading into Hell's Kitchen were there are many incredible and reasonably priced restaurants.

East and you are going into Midtown were all the business action is.

North and you are going into the Upper West Side to go to the Natural History Museum or enjoy many of the fine restaurants and activities the area has to offer.

And of course, walk to the North/East and in just a few minutes you are in the middle of central park!

Columbus Circle also has a Whole Foods grocery store and an upscale Mall. Just search the internet for "the shops at columbus circle" to find a complete list.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this neighborhood. Before I got this apartment I spent 6 months researching the pros and cons of every location. I went with this because its the best for business (Midtown), leisure (Central Park), culture (The Theater District) and near a major subway hub for quick access anywhere in the city.

Amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best homes I have stayed in during my travels in the last 10 years. The apartment is huge and easily accommodated my family and friends. The home owners have thought of everything, instructions on how to operate everything and an enourmous amount of supplies to make it easy to live in without having to go out and purchase a lot of things. The beds, linens, pillows were high quality. Along with all the kitchen appliances. The bathrooms are modern and absolutely loved the dispensers full of shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, plus the never ending supply of towels! The home owners answered all questions immediately and were very gracious. The apartment was close to everything and Columbus Circle is a great area to stay in and take in all the sights of New York. We will definitely return and recommend this true home away from home to everyone.

Perfect location. Apartment was s fully stocked, enough towels for an army

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights with 5 women in town to. Celebrate a special birthday. Easy to get to subway, uptown or central park. Great restaurants nearby. Each room had it's own air conditioner, necessary for our stay. And given it's location, all rooms were very quiet. Make sure you can carry your suitcase up 2 sets of stairs. Otherwise a PERFECT stay.

Amazing experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Rick's property for eleven nights. Five adults and a two-year-old child. There was plenty room for all of us. Bathroom, kitchen and house supllies. Really confortable bed and shower. The property is in a great location. Close to markets, restaurants, subway, anything you need is on the corner. Central Park becomes your yard (sooo close).

Rick is really attentive and quick in aswering anything you need to know.

I recommend this property to everyone!

You will not regret!

What a great place to stay when in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

How many places can you find in NYC that have large bedrooms, state of the art furnishings and 2 full sized bathrooms? Plus, might I add a tranquil deck to start your day on or wind it up at night! We totally enjoyed our stay and will most certainly book it again! Thanks so much to our hosts:-)

Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at 3930235. We were coming in to film a commercial---and while we might normally stay in a hotel it was Fashion Week and hotel prices were a bit out of control so we went in search of a VRBO property and scored a jackpot in this wonderful three bedroom/two bathroom apartment----. The apartment is up two flights of stairs, freshly furnished, it has a wonderful kitchen, rock star bathrooms (as the owner said he spent about $75,000 apiece per bathroom and it shows), is quiet, and in a great neighborhood about two blocks from Columbus Circle/Central Park and at 57th Street is only about 11 blocks to Times Square -- and there are plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby. We looked at a lot of apartments that were THREE bedroom, ONE bath, but we wanted another full bathroom and this apartment had it. Definitely a great find and would absolutely come back again, and the owners were very easy to deal with. If this apartment is in an area you like and this is in a price range you can afford, don't even hesitate to book it (we got lucky as the calendar shows booked most of the time and we just fit into a five day window of availability). It's also super clean---and has a wonderful outdoor patio. And----it was summer and every bedroom had its own air conditioner (with it's own control) plus one for the living room----so---you'll never get too hot on a warm/humid NY day.

Best location in NYC, Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We picked this property because of the consistent 5 star reviews and we were blown away with every aspect of our stay! This is without a doubt the best spot in Manhattan to be, right by several subway routes, Central Park, Times Square and great restaurants. The owners were extremely responsive to all questions and the amenities in the apartment assured a relaxing and stress free vacation! We will definitely stay here again!
