About Svein A. Berg

We are a family of five, currently living in Manhattan, New York. Olga is born in Ukraine and Svein is from Norway. Our three children Sebastian, Sophie and Ingrid keep us pretty busy.

Why Svein A. Berg chose Manhattan

We love the location of this apartment, and also feel of the place. Our kids perform at the Metropolitan Opera, so the location is great for us. This is the apartment we live in, so we only rent it when we are traveling. We do have another rental property on VRBO#148863.

What makes this apartment unique

Light, quiet, next to Central Park and Lincoln Center, subway trains, Museum of Natural History.

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!

Wonderful Central Park location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at this property. This brownstone is located within a half block of Central Park and within easy walking distance of the subway. Explore the park, easily walk to the Guggenheim and the Met, or visit the natural history museum - you're not likely to run out of things to do! Many shops and tasty restaurants in this area as well. Trader Joe's is just a few blocks away so we were able to buy food for several meals and save a little money. The New Years Eve fireworks in the park were amazing!

We have been treated extremely well by the owners who ensured that we had everything that we needed. The property was just as advertised and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit NYC.

New York Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Hey Svein & Olga, thank you for opening your warm and welcoming home to our family. We slept well in the warm and comfortable beds and we loved the eclectic touches that gave the apartment its soul. Our kids enjoyed playing in your little fairylight filled garden when we weren't exploring the nearby Central Park and other convenient delights of New York City. I hope we can return one day. Thank you again for your hospitality. Best wishes from The West Family, Western Australia.

New Year and early Jan in New York

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time on 82nd West!

Apartment is so close to everything you need in the local vicinity. Central Park only 100m, subway just around the corner and great food/drinking places on Columbus and Amsterdam. So easy to get downtown and into good party districts such as Meatpacking and the East and West Villages. Museum of Natural History and the American Historical Society nearby. Plus the USS Intrepid which we were all very impressed by, especially the aircraft (space shuttle soon to come)!

The apartment is everything you could hope for. Clean, comfortable and plenty of space. Outside garden perfect for the summer or some fresh air.

Svein and Olga excellent for questions about the area and very easy moving in and out of the apartment.

Wish we were still back there, epic epic week! Enjoy!
