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.

Fun area, great view, comfortable, clean.

  • 5 of 5

Overall an enjoyable stay. The location is steps from the subway, Washington Square, Astor Place, dozens of coffee shops, bars, restaurants, right in the middle of NYU. Apartment faces south/southwest and looks toward WTC tower. Can see Williamsburg, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Verrazano bridges (the latter just one tower). Great way to wake up. Clean, no trouble checking in or out. Quiet. Cool and comfortable during a hot July.

Perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect location and size for my extended stay for work in the New York area. It is a quiet, safe area in the heart of NYU; Washington Square only a block away; Union Square a short walk away.

The view was amazing; especially in the evenings.

It is very close, convenient to subway and a short walk to work for me in Soho (very popular area), shopping on Broadway, 5th Ave., and exercise along the Hudson River walkway. Many great restaurants close by.

The kitchen was well equipped for cooking at home, laundry facility on the same floor a big plus.

It became a great home away from home for me and Lana was a great host, quick to respond to any questions that I had.

This would definitely be my go to place any time I return to the NY area.

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was all as described. Close to subway, Washington park, SoHo, and easy to get to further down town and uptown on the trains.

It was close walking distance to Union Square, Washington Park, Hudson River Walkway, and even to 9/11 Memorial for me.

Even though the apartment is in the heart of NYU, it was a very quiet place. The views are also amazing. I ended up extending my stay multiple times. Will stay here again when I return in the fall.

Would highly recommend it. It became my home away from home.

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.
