*********** our TOWNHOUSE/ our home FACTS ****************

ELEVATOR Lift | Very High Ceilings | PARQUET hard wood floors

5 complete unit options (each 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom )

in ONE Location:

23 guests total can be comfortably accommodated for longer stays among our 5 Flats.

Children of all ages are welcome. (Cribs available in all units).

My husband and I, our child, our parents, and our staff also live in the house.


!! We operate LEGALLY: we are not an apartment building, but a single-family owner-occupied home !!

OWNERS and Maintenance Personnel are ON PREMISES AT ALL TIMES

(this means you can also arrive any time, even in the middle of the night).


Daily maid / HOUSEKEEPING service INCLUDED with every reservation

[ this is not optional - we insist on daily maintenance !.. but we will never interfere with your stay, we shall do it when you are out enjoying the city ]

************** SETTING & LOCATION **************


Set on a tranquil tree-lined Upper East Side block

30 meters off 5th Avenue on 76th Street

Very limited traffic during the day (a car passes at very slow speed every few minutes) and there are almost no vehicles at night.

Naturally no other nuisances of staying in a hotel or a regular apartment building: no noisy neighbors, no slamming doors, no barking dogs...

Moreover, the house is only 70 steps away from the Entrance to Central Park.

( Parents, rejoice ! - the playground is immediately at the entrance.. )

Our immediate street block is one of the most sought-after and safest block to own and stay. In fact, several buildings on our block belong to foreign governments, and thus have the extra assigned security.

Three top-luxury 5-star Hotels (The Carlyle , The Surrey , and The Mark) are only steps away, ensuring heightened SECURITY 24-hours per day.

The Carlyle Hotel regularly hosts not only members of the UK Royal Family, but current and former visiting heads of states of most countries, including USA.

The Mark and The Surrey Hotels are the preferred choice of celebrities.


Located on 5th Avenue's "MUSEUM MILE".

Within a 2-10 minute walk you can be at Metropolitan, Guggenheim, Whitney, Frick, Neue Galerie, Natural History Museum, Jewish Museum, the Gagosian Gallery, and dozens of other famous galleries.


We are steps away from the Madison Avenue's exclusive BOUTIQUE shopping mile.

Minutes away from all 5th Avenue Flagship stores: 14 min walk to Barneys, 17 min to Burgdorf Goodman, closest Apple store is 2 min walk away on Madison Ave and 74th, the flagship 5th Ave Apple store is 15 min away.


As expected, due to our most coveted Manhattan location, we are surrounded by the nicest cafes, restaurants, and gourmet food stores.

Luckily, the very reasonably priced and still very nice stores and eateries are only 3-5 minutes walk away on Lexington and 3rd Avenues. D'Agostino Supermarket is on Lexington Ave and 76th St (4 min walk), Citarella is on 3rd Ave and 76th (7 min).



• Metro/subway/underground tube:

3 blocks (3-4 min walk) away (Lexington Ave & 77th Street, north-south green lines 4,5,6).

If you want to take the subway line running down the West side of the Manhattan (blue line A,C or Orange B,D), then you can walk across the Central Park (9 min) or take the crosstown 79th street bus and get off at the very next stop (2 min).

• Bus (downtown):

5th Avenue Buses stops 30 meters away (runs South), Buses M1 M2 M3 M4

• Bus (uptown):

Madison Avenue Buses stops 30 meters away (runs North), Buses M1 M2 M3 M4

• Bus (cross-town):

79th Street Bus stops 3 blocks (3-4 min walk) away (runs East-West), Bus M79


FREE on the street PARKING is available immediately on our block. - If someone can afford to live on our block, he will certainly afford to pay for a garage spot. (Please do not park in diplomatic spots. - no need to upset the neighbors!..)

Also, 3 paid garages, including one reasonably priced, are within 2 blocks radius.

************ BEDDING & AMENITIES ************

We use only the highest quality bedding:

- tempurpedic / memory foam mattresses

- 100 % cotton sheets and towels

- 100% wool or cotton blankets

- down duvet, down pillows

- also available on request are chiropractic, tempurpedic, and hypoallergenic pillows


All bedrooms have both black-out and semi-transparent shades

AC in every room of every apartment

Cable TV

free super-fast broadband WIRELESS/ Wi-Fi throughout the house

digital SAFE-BOX

LAUNDRY - we wash guests’ clothes gratis (Yes we do !)

KITCHENS are well equipped with all sorts of high quality gadgets, pans, basic spices and pantry items.

If you do not see something you need, please ask for it any time during your stay, and we shall either tell you where it is or bring it to you usually within 10 minutes.

Again: we offer everything you would expect from a carefully setup guest apartment (hair-dryer, umbrellas, iron and ironing board, etc ).

************** RATES **************


We are very mindful about whom we host.

So once we decide to host a family, I and my team do EVERYTHING to make and keep our guests happy... and whatever we can do for you, we shall do it at no additional charge.

We do not collect a security deposit as we have high confidence in guests we choose to host, moreover we are always at home thus we are well aware of what is happening in the house; and if something breaks, this is life. - We fix it or replace it! We know it was not done on purpose...

There are absolutely NO extra fees or charges:

utility charges, TV cable usage, wi-fi broadband internet, housekeeping/maid service, personal laundry service, final cleaning,

document printing, package/parcel acceptance any time prior to arrival, et al are included in the rate.

[ Upon request we arrange AIRPORT TRANSFERS (suv or sedan). However settling with the driver is guests' responsibility.

The car service that we use does offer our guests very good rates. All airport rates are set. ]

Our rates vary, depending on current demand and the demand data that I have accumulated while hosting guests for the last 9 years.


Rates depend on a number of factors:

- your specific dates of stay (high demand months vs low demand months),

- the length of your stay,

- the number of guests.


Please ring me +1-917-825-3188 or email for an accurate quote.

!!! Please DO NOT PLACE a “REQUEST TO BOOK” (enter your credit card details) UNTIL you speak to me. -

It is possible that another apartment in our House would work better for you needs. !!!

I respond to ALL polite written inquiries and answer the phone at all waking hours as long as I am not with current guests of the house.

- if travelers are friends, family members, colleagues

- if there are any couples, elderly or children

- the age and sex of the children

- approximate age of all travelers

- the purpose of this stay

- whatever else you want us to know .

We need that information so that we can understand how we can make you most comfortable. - We do have 5 guest apartments, so another flat might work better for you !..

Finally, the more information you provide the better.

If you choose to disclose bare minimum, that is fine (I understand that some people are more "private"than others, and do not jump to conclusions). - Just do not forget to

Excellent location, well appointed rooms and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

Julia was very helpful before and during our stay - before, with booking as well as loads of neighborhood information, and during with being readily available for questions, concerns. House was very clean and comfortable. Location is key - 1/2 block to Central Park, and quiet residential street, but still very close to shopping and museums, etc. Looking forward to staying again soon!

Exceeded All Expectations :-)

  • 5 of 5

We live in Queensland Australia and with my daughter finishing her last year of schooling, we decided as a treat to visit New York! In the end it turned into a celebration of 3 generations travelling across the US – my Mum that joined us from Cape Town, South Africa (70 years old), my daughter (17 years) and myself (44 years). We started in Los Angele and visited San Francisco, Las Vegas, Memphis, Orlando and last NYC.

As my daughter and I reminisce about our amazing time in New York City, we are always brought back to the lovely location, apartment, and service we received at ‘the Apartments on 5th Avenue.’ Dubbed the Museum Mile, we felt like absolute royalty. I always loved the beautiful Brownstone Townhouses that I would see on TV shows however, I can assure you that not one of them compares to this Luxurious Limestone Mansion.

It was quite late when we arrived in NYC, and we were all very tired after travelling around the country. We were pleasantly surprised with the transport Julia had arranged for us – a white stretch limo! Julia greeted us as we got to the apartments, and she noticed that my Mum was feeling quite ill with the flu. After showing us the apartment that we originally were keen on and had firmly requested (Deluxe Terraced Suite), Julia suggested that we choose between it and another apartment that she felt would work better now that Mum was sick… It turned out to be a blessing. Indeed in the ‘White Loft’ that Julia suggested, Mum could rest more comfortably in her own room and all of us could have separate sleeping spaces. The ‘White Loft’ faces the street and we absolutely loved it!

For the first 6 days mom was unwell and stayed in. So watching from the window people walking the dogs, watching the snow fall, hearing all the sounds of the city – those memories are still vivid for us today as they were then.

The location is absolutely unbeatable. With Central Park, many Museums, The Met and Madison Avenue Shops just a few steps away. Taxis were readily available in front of the apartment, which made sightseeing and shopping a breeze. We went for walks late at night and we never felt unsafe. The weather was freezing so it was so lovely to come home to a perfectly heated apartment every day.

It is the little things that they do – like your laundry every day and the apartment fully serviced, it is like staying in a hotel, with much more room and personalised service.
