                        I stayed here in March 2013 with my husband and two year old daughter. It was just perfect for us! * Jamie was a lovely host - even when I thought I had locked myself out mere minutes after arriving!! * Very close to Central Park (a short block away) which is great for a young kid - especially when it snows! * 45 minute walk to 'mid town', quick and easy to catch buses or the subway * A large supermarket ("Whole Foods") just a couple of blocks away which is perfect for getting a quick dinner together after a big day out * "Typical" New York streetscape that you see on TV and in the movies. * Quiet neighbourhood. * The downstairs bedroom/bathroom has it's own entrance so it would be a great apartment for 2 couples holidaying together. I would love to stay here again if we ever get the chance to come back to New York.

                        We have used VRBO many times to rent apartments in the US and abroad, and although we have always been satisfied, this apartment was our favorite! The apartment was very quiet at night, which was important to us because we had to get up early each morning. Lots of natural light streams into the apartment due to the atrium on the back, as well as the large windows in the front. The layout of the apartment, with each bedroom on a different level, worked very well for our two families. Everyone felt as though they had enough privacy. The location is situated close to three subway lines, including an express stop on the red line, so getting around was a cinch. Whole Foods as well as other grocery stores are close by. The owners were very easy to work with in terms of booking and any questions we had. I liked the fact that they live above this unit. All in all, it was a fantastic experience. We will definitely try to book this apartment the next time we come to NYC. Absolutely no negative comments at all with this great place!!

                        My husband and I stayed at this apartment for one month, during which Sandy hit the area followed by a nor'easter. It was a great apartment, and remained warm and with power throughout the storms. The apartment is filled with light, very private, and with two levels (a bedroom and bath on each level) affords much privacy. We had several different friends stay with us during the month, and felt that there was plenty of room. It is close to Central Park and the subway system making it very accessible to all that NYC has to offer. The owners live in the unit above and were always helpful and accommodating to any need that we had. We would highly recommend this apartment to others and we would also plan to stay there again.

                        We decided to rent an apartment as opposed to staying in a hotel because New York is a city best explored and experienced like a New Yorker. The location of this fabulous apartment could not be better. So we brag to our friends that we walk to the Central park - a block away in the beginning of our mornings - walking through beautiful Brown stone neighborhood full of really good deli shops where I get my morning bagel FRESH each day. This neighborhood is not not only safe and beautiful the apartment is also perfectly equipped and because I love to cook, we ended up staying home for a lot of our meals. We even had a very memorable and cozy barbecue in the back deck of the apartment and had friends as far as Boston and Phoenix, dropping in for Labor Day party! And they we're all asking "How did you get so lucky to find this place?". On practical matters, Jamie is a very straightforward person to deal with, no unpleasant surprises, honest and reliable. Upon paying through paypal, somehow there was some confusion and she could not confirm our payment but instead of just brushing us off she graciously reserved the place for us and advised us to confirm with our bank to make sure our payment is secured. We thought we needed to refill the barbecue tank - as it turned out there was no need and yet her husband made sure it was done anyway. There is plenty of room for my family (couple + 3 kids age 7, 10 & 12), and a couple of visiting friends who stayed for 3 days with us. Evenings are quiet and relaxed. Towels and linen supply is plentiful and every equipment and appliance worked perfectly without any hitches. It's really like having your own home. Pluses: thousands of books for entertainment and for practical guide around the city, an espresso machine (which is truly appreciated!), wash machine and drier, an outdoor deck! (a total luxury in NYC), comfortable beds, clean apartment. I can go on... my only regret is we only stayed for 1 week - I wish that at least we stayed for 2 :-). Don't bother with any other place - and save yourself the time (it took me almost a month), and look no further than this home away from home.

                        Was very spacious for two couples. Beds were comfortable. Location good access to subway stops. Grocery stores nearby. Pretty quiet street. Owners available to answer questions.Downstairs shower is in sunken bathtub, but the upstairs shower is a stall. Gelato on corner very good and open late.Whole Foods close by and well stocked.

                        Just returned from New York City and can't say enough good things about our accommodations and dealing with our temporary landlord. She was totally responsive to all questions prior to arrival and then did all she could to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. Apartment is on two levels requiring ability to do stairs. Lower bedroom/bath unit has a deep tub but presented no problem to those assigned to that bedroom. Second level was main living area with another bedroom and easy using stall shower. We were 4 adults and one small child and the space and comfort for us was PERFECT. Location was ideal for our purposes and we hope we can return when we need it again. Have no hesitancy in recommending this for those who want comfort/privacy and trust in those who they are dealing with.
