Amazing property and owner!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay with Lita at her property! She was so accommodating, greeted us at the property, and was so welcoming. She made out stay very easy and enjoyable. The property is located very close to subway stations and is a beautiful, historic home. We will be staying here again in five months.

Super Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely, apartment for one week while vacationing in New York with my husband. On arrival, I was greeted with such warmth and hospitality from Teresa, the owner.

The one bedroom apartment is elegantly fitted with everything you need, a queen sized bed, flat screen television, modern kitchen with appliances. Free internet access and telephone is also provided and for those hot summer days, a window AC is provided.

One night, the owner held a personal barbeque and invited my husband and I. We truly enjoyed and I give her thumbs up for the lovely food. Theresa is a fabulous hostess and I hope she keeps up the good work.

The building is centrally located and is surrounded by the subway where you can get the ABCD train, supermarket, church, bank and restaurants.

My husband and I would definitely stay here again.

Beautifully Decorated 1 BR Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here while apartment hunting in preparation of her cross country move. This apartment provided a home away from home after long days of viewing apartments. The location was very convenient, the subway station for ABCD trains is less than 1/2 block away. The 1 train is also fairly close. The grocery store was within walking distance, as was a city park with a swimming pool. A mini mart was just a few doors way and the neighborhood provided lots of options for a quick bite to eat.

The kitchen has been updated and is very well equipped. The owner thoughtfully provides everything including coffee for the coffeemaker. The large dining table in the kitchen was a favorite place for us. The apartment has a wall mounted flat screen TV and free WiFi. The owner is available to provide assistance and directions. She even arranged car service for our trip to the airport.

The apartment is furnished with beautiful antique dressers, plush rugs and linens. It is located in a historical brownstone, but has been updated without destroying the charm and character of the building. Everything you need is provided, even shampoo, conditioner, and hair dryer. The apartment has 3 rooms, each with a ceiling fan and is extremely clean. For the muggy summer days, a window AC unit is provided.

I would definitely stay here again when I come visit my daughter.

Clean, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Just a few doors to the subways ABCD downtown. Teresa is a fabulous hostess offering information, dining and travel suggestions. We found a pharmacy, laundromat and at least three good meals within a couple of blocks with her help. It seemed her door was always open when we needed her. The apartment is bright and spacious as depicted in the pictures. You can feel the history in every room. I brought my 20-year-old nephew for his first trip to New York and I look forward to bringing his brother next year!

3 days recovery in Litas

  • 4 of 5

I had an operation the day I moved into Litas apartment. So it was a huge relief that Theresa was so lovely and kind to me during my stay there for 3 days.

The apartment was fantastic, really nice and warm. The TV was huge and had all the channels. The bed was huge too. It was a perfect place for me to recover.

When I go to NYC, I will stay at Litas. It has everything and is close to the subway.

I cannot speak highly enough of the place and the great time I had there

Simply AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay when in NYC. It is conveniently located on the same block as the subway. the place is renovated but still in keeping with the brownstones history. When I'm staying in NYC I LOVE staying here. The host Theresa is an amazing person. She is so helpful and knowledgeable on the nightlife, restaurants and best attractions. I've stayed in all the rooms thus far and I'm yet to be disappointed. The rooms are all CLEAN and COMFORTABLE. They have a feeling of home which is always appreciated when away from home. Theresa always asks if I need breakfast the next morning and has it waiting when requested. She truly goes above and beyond to make the most memorable stay. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family. Cant wait to stay here again!
