Your own private hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York trip. Enjoy life in an elegant 1904 Mansion in one of the city's most charming historic neighbourhoods.

If you are a regular guest of The Carlyle, The Mark, or The Surrey, but are looking for more space, privacy, bespoke personalized service... or merely more calm and quiet (here you can hide from the paparazzi)... or if you are a couple celebrating a special occasion... or if you are simply looking for an unforgettable stay... this classically furnished, most luxurious guest suite is distinctly for you.

This elegant Aristocratic Beaux-Art style Landmark Mansion was built in 1904 from Indiana limestone and Italian marble. My family was fortunate to have acquired it in 1988, and it has been our family's leading residence since 1994.

At over 13,000+ sqft, (1.200+ sqm), our NYC Mansion is much too spacious for us. So we decided to live on the upper 3 floors, and to convert the lower 4 floors into completely separate & very private guest apartments (all with independent entry) available year-round for brief stays and mid-term let.

Since 2005, we have been luxuriously hosting guests from around the world in a warm and splendid environment.

About Julia and Claudio - OWNERS, live in the same Mansion full time

Since 1994, our Fifth Avenue Mansion has been an oasis for weary travellers visiting bustling and energetic New York City. Owned and operated by an old European family who has chosen to make New York City their home, the premises has not forgotten the Old World refinements of England and France. Located in the mid-70's and Fifth Avenue, The Fifth Avenue Mansion has often been a home-away-from-home to notable members of several Royal Families from a number of European countries.

This property is listed by its Owners, a married couple, who live in the premises with their family.

Housekeepers and Maintenance Staff also live on premises and are available 12-hours per day, every day.

Most matters get attended to within a few minutes.

Julia & Claudio do everything to make their guests' overall stay in NY as comfortable and easy as possible.

You will find that everyone is very friendly, and very easy to deal with.

FABULOUS! Like Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers who have stayed in the Artist's Studio and the Deluxe European Suite. We are a family of 3 from Boston and we highly recommend this wonderful Upper East Side townhouse located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. It is a well maintained building with tasteful interior decor. Lots of natural sunlight fills both apartments and they have large, comfortable beds. Use of the first floor common area, daily housekeeping, kitchens and personal laundry service puts this place above the rest. On top of that, is the warm hospitality and professional customer service from Julia which makes booking this location a pleasure.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the smallest room but plenty of room even with the roller bed. Great Cindy mattress and lovely lines. Nice to have a fridge and a minute kitchen. Walking distance to the Met and One block from Central Park. Host provided us with lots of valuable info about restaurants, grocery stores and more.

Great Family Adventure on St. Patrick's Day

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in the spacious Grand White Flat at the gorgeous family run business of Julia and Claudio.

This is my first time staying in a private family run space and it did not disappoint. The flat was immaculate and very well provisioned. There is much more space then a hotel. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is the perfect size for a vacation rental, allowing us to eat a few meals in with the kids. The mansion overall is gorgeous and very well kept. The staff we met were all very helpful and friendly. My kids felt very much at home. We had everything we needed.

The location was fabulous, especially for the enjoyment of the yearly St. Patrick's Day Parade. The neighborhood has everything you need and you are only a couple blocks from the subway with easy access to the entire city.

We also enjoyed Julia's recommendations for food and coffee. She provides a great list of recommendations and ideas for your stay. They are very much worth checking out.

We would love to return again someday to this lovely flat.

Very nice place, hospitable host

  • 5 of 5

Overall my stay was like clockwork. I arrived, received the keys, and the accommodations were exactly as described on the site and in the pictures.

Host was hospitable, and even gave local recommendations for restaurants and bakeries as we departed.

Excellent 'pied à terre' in NYC

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a vacation where our boys (17 and 20) would be willing to come with us (if you are parents of teenagers, you understand this!). My wife and I have been to NYC dozens of times and suggested we go down for the holidays as a family. Everybody was quite enthusiastic about the idea. As we were a fairly big group, a hotel was not the optimal option as it would mean we needed several rooms which defeated the purpose of the family vacation. Looking at various short term sites, we came upon Julia’s offerings and were completely enamored with the style and location of her abode. After exchanging a few emails and a phone call or two, we decided that this was the ultimate place for us to spend our family vacation. We stayed at Julia's place for a week starting on New Year's Eve. We came as a family with three children, two close friends and my mother in law. We were 8 in total.

We are from Ottawa and decided to drive down, unsure what the traffic or parking would be like in Manhattan. Parking around Julia’s place was easier than expected – she helped us understanding the parking laws and informed us when we had to move our vehicles. We did not have to pay for parking.

We rented two apartments. The Grand White Loft for 7 of us and the Uber my mother-in-law. The place is wonderful, as impressive as in the pictures on the site. It is cozy and very clean, half a block away from Central Park, in the museum mile. Away from the busy/noisy tourist crowds of Time Square, but still yet an easy walking distance from it. The subway is close (within a few blocks), so the whole City was at our doorsteps without the drawbacks of being downtown. All amenities and services are at short walking distance.

You do not just rent an apartment from Julia. It is her place, her home. Once you get there, you feel like you are a privileged guest, and you are cared for as a member of the family. For anyone, like us, who is seeking a place to call home in NYC, you will be hard pressed to find a better place.

We will definitely stay with Julia during our next NYC escapade.
