Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: While we are not native New Yorkers, we have lived all over New York city for nearly 35 years. After two decades of apartment-living in Brooklyn and Manhattan we opted for a house to raise our kids, now all living on their own. We've been vrbo and home away renters ourselves for our family's travels and we appreciate what renters look for, and expect, in a vacation home. Our home- recently listed- has been successfully rented for thanksgiving and Xmas/New year holidays in 2014 and we have bookings through April 2015.

Why the Owner Chose Other Manhattan Properties:
The house is a 1920 Dutch Colonial with period details and all modern upgrades. It has an open living, dining and sunroom great for family gatherings .House is very well- equipped, convenient to all in the NYC and metro region and spacious enough for a family or a family reunion. We especially welcome weekly rentals. We personally greet our renters, leave extensive notes and suggestions and are always available for questions or issues that may arise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's nearly impossible to find an affordable vacation apartment in the city large enough to accommodate a family, or an extended family. Our home, with its beautiful yard and hot tub, makes life after a hectic day in the city truly relaxing. Our location is minutes by car from the upper east or west sides of manhattan, and 25 minutes by train to midtown, Grand Central Station. Our house is one (1) block from the train which is safe and reliable.
