Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our second time in the apartment (each time we stayed for one month), and I think this explains everything, both about the apartment and a bout the hosts: The apartment is located in the best place you can imagine in Manhattan: it is near all of Manhattan's beauties, and every place is easily accessible, either by walk or by public transportation. And above all: The great view of south Manhattan is seen right from the studio, with the Freedom Tower at your arm,-reach!!!

Fred and Lana are extremely nice and helpful people. They are there when you need them and they know how to respect your privacy. In other words: The ultimate hosts!

We are sure to return there in the near future.

Great studio apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as described and better. I have stayed in a few VRBO'S in NY recently for my work and this apartment did not have any small unexpected surprises. The views from this apartment are amazing. It gets a lot of light during the day and the skyline at night is even better. It is very quiet even though it is in a high rise building in the heart of NYU. I expected more noise because of the location. I also liked the fact that there is a doorman.

Large for being a studio apartment and the layout does not make you feel like you are in a small space. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans for cooking. The apartment was very clean when I arrived. Well stocked with linens, towels. Could use a new coffee pot but that is a small detail.

Good shopping and restaurants and grocery stores are within walking distance. It was also close proximity to my work which was great for me as I prefer to walk and only a short 15 minute walk to the Hudson walkway for exercise.

Very close to many attractions within walking distance; Washington Square Park, Hudson walkway, Freedom tower, Union Square. Also close to Chinatown and Little Italy.

Did not use the subway but conveniently close by.

Lana was always quick to respond when I had a question which made me feel very comfortable.

Having laundry facilities was a plus for me and on the same floor even better.

New York Stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a brilliant location, walking distance to majority of things we wanted to see and those a little further away, we used the subway (1 minute walk) and buses. The facilities in the apartment met all of our needs (fully equipped kitchen, iron, hairdryer, washing machine/dryer, wifi, ATM in the lobby etc) A great size for two people.

Wonderful New York!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time staying at Fred's apartment, he was very helpful and answered all our questions. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay and it was great to have a quiet evening after a day of seeing New York! The shops and restaurants were very close and it was convenient to travel by subway. Thank you and we hope to come back to this apartment some day!
