Gorgeous apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely apartment. It's hard to find a place for a family of five in Manhattan, but this apartment is really great. The proximity to the park and midtown is super convenient, and of course, being on the upper west side itself is great with kids. Svein was also very responsive and helpful throughout or stay. I can't say enough wonderful things about the experience.

Excellent location, beautiful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Sven and Olga'splace is truly lovely. We had a great time with the kids. It is very spacious and has a lovely dining room for family dinners. The location is unbeatable, half a block from central park, with one of the best playgrounds for kids and literally two subway lines very close by. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Historic Brownstone Lincoln Square NYC

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay over Thanksgiving holiday at this wonderful brownstone.

Svein and Olga made it so easy to check in.

The apartment was very spacious and clean. It was so nice to have a washer/dryer in the apt.

The neighborhood was so convient to restaurants/transportation.

We loved to be so close to Central Park which we took daily walks

Thank you again Svein and Olga for allowing us to stay at your NYC gem.

We only hope to again have the chance to stay there.

A wonderful Home on the Upper West Side

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this Brownstone since our daughter was dancing in NYC for the week. I must say that renting this place was the best decision that we could have ever made. This Brownstone is not in the crowded and noisy areas like Times Square or even Hells Kitchen. The Brownstone itself is a wonderful place to stay so that you have plenty of space and amenities and not just a hotel room. There was plenty of room for our family of 5 to sleep and to have space to spread out. The kitchen had everything that you could ask for with a nice stove and a sub zero refrigerator. The bathrooms were clean with very nice showers and were very good sized. It was also nice to have a washing machine and dryer on site! All of the beds were comfortable and had their own air conditioners so that we were comfortable when we slept.

The neighborhood was amazing to us. Within a 4 block walk you had almost any type of restaurant you could could ask for. We ate Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, and burgers without having to walk more than 3 or 4 blocks. There is even a coffee house and Starbucks close by. Central Park is less than a block away and there is a subway a block and a half away that you can catch to get you to midtown in only 3 or 4 stops. It is also a 10 block walk to the Museum of Natural History and even less to Lincoln center.

The owners were amazing to work with. They could not have been more helpful or pleasant if they tried. We were given wonderful instructions and helpful hints for groceries and for transportation. We remained in contact with them and they responded quickly to any emails of messages we sent. Our security deposit was returned in a few days after vacating the brownstone!

In closing, we loved this place for it's quiet out of the way location, the cleanliness and amenities within the home, the stores and restaurants that were nearby, the ease of which the rental took place, and the amazing owners. I would not think twice about staying there again in the future. In truth I would have a difficult time staying anywhere else!
