I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights with my wife & 2 children (aged 16 & 12). Firstly the whole booking procedure was very easy with the owner (Ray) responding very promptly to all email enquiries. Directions to the apartment were very clear & we found the place easily. We were met on arrival by Ray who provided a very comprehensive introduction to the apartment, the surrounding neighbourhood & to downtown Manhatten. He even gave us a mobile phone (pre-programmed with his number) in case we got into difficulties - please note we loved NYC & never once felt threatened. The apartment was scrupulously clean, well appointed & generously sized. The photographs on the website don't really do the place justice, take our word for it the place is excellent. The master bedroom is brilliant & the bed very comfortable. All the bed linen & towels were provided & were of very good quality. The local neighbourhood is full of all the things you need (grocery stores, take away food, cafes, banks etc). During the day it was busy & cosmopolitan. At night it was even more lively, with a large group of locals (both young & old) congregating on the corner to chat, sing, play music & fire up the BBQ. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway this might not be the place for you but we loved it & we never ever felt anything other than 100% safe even quite late at night. The music outside went on until 11pm most nights but it was never so loud as to provide much nuisance. We really liked the flexibilty of the apartment (a seperate bedroom for the grown ups) & two additional beds in the living area so both our kids could have their own beds without having to share. Travel into downtown Manhatten was very easy, the subway just 2 bocks away (5 mins walk) & we could be in Times Square in 15-20 mins. The 7 day Metro Pass - unlimited subway & bus travel (as recommended by Ray) is superb value. Really we could hardly fault the apartment or its location. Ray was a fantastic host & certainly helped us get the most out of our stay. He was flexible in letting us arrive early on the first day to drop off bags so we were free to go explore the city. On out last day he helpful let us stay a wee bit longer while I went into town to organise some car hire. We really appreciated this flexibility & fely like Ray really valued our custom. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting NYC (including friends & relations).

Owner response: My guests visited during the July 4 Independence Day week-end. There were neighborhood BBQs and street fairs all over the city. It is traditionally a noisy week-end. The neighborhood is ordinarily quiet and family oriented. In fact, my apartment has often been used for romantic getaways, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries. NYC is an exciting city. Come enjoy everything!

Com os preços dos hotéis nas nuvens a opção de alugar um apartamento foi uma saída de excelente custo-benefício. O apartamento do Ray é excelente, bastante espaçoso e limpo com tudo que uma família necessita para agradáveis dias em NY. O apartamento fica a menos de 5 minutos de caminhada de uma estação do metrô. Desta estação à Times Square são 20 minutos, se for até a parte mais sul da ilha são 40 minutos. A vizinhança tem tudo que você precisa, desde um MC Donalds a um supermercado, O Ray é muito simpático e sempre disposto a ajudar. Recomendadíssimo.

Great Spot to Stay!
This review was submitted to a HomeAway affiliated Website: We enjoyed our stay while in New York. The apartment was clean and well furnished and Ray gave us excellent tips on how to use the subway, plus tips on where to visit. We were not very far from all the sites and I wish we had more time to explore. Neighborhood is vibrant plus lots of places to stop and eat.

Great apartment and location, would recommend!
This unedited review was submitted to a HomeAway affiliated Website: This was our 3rd visit to NYC but our first time renting an apartment. (our 16 year old daughter accompanied us hence the reason for choosing an apartment instead of a hotel) It proved to be a good choice and we were extremely happy with the apartment, the neighbourhood and our host Ray. Ray met us when we arrived and gave us a good hand-over including tips about the local neighbourhood and also Manhattan in general. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and warm (it was October). The neighbourhood is a lively and interesting place with lots of young families and we felt safe and at ease whilst out and about. In fact we felt very much at home and part of the neighbourhood! There is a good supermarket just round the block as well as a good selection of fast food/take-away vendors etc. The subway is a 3 minute walk away and from there it takes 15 -20 minutes to Times Square or around 30 minutes to lower Manhattan. All in all we had an excellent trip and enjoyed our stay at Ray's apartment and would definitely come back and will recommend to friends and family. Feedback from our 16 year old: "yeah the place was great, loved the big TV with loads of channels and also the bed was comfy!!" PS Ray also allowed us to late check out the day we left without any fuss or extra charge, so thanks Ray. Simon, Cheryl & Katie.

Eine schön möblierte Wohnung in einer entspannten, lebendigen Wohngegend mit vielen lateinamerikanischen Einwanderern. Mit der Metro ist es ca. 15 Minuten bis nach Midtown, nur 2 Stationen bis zum Univiertel der Columbia. Ein schöner Spaziergang durch den Park und man ist mitten in Harlem. Es war unsere 1.Reise in die USA überhaupt und wir haben uns auch wegen unseres sehr netten und professionellen Vermieters, der jederzeit hilfsbereit zur Seite stand, uns z.b. ein günstiges Taxi zum Flughafen besorgte, wie "alte Hasen" gefühlt. Wir hatten die untere Wohnung und einziger Kritikpunkt ist, dass man die Leute in der oberen Wohnung durch die Holzbalkendecke hört. Ansonsten ist die Lage ruhig für New Yorker Verhältnisse, man kann durchaus bei offenem Fenster schlafen.

Mit 4 Personen verbrachten wir 1 Woche im August bei Rick unserem sehr freundlichen,hilfsbereiten Vermieter. Die Lage des Appartments ist ruhig: es sind nur wenige Schritte zur U Bahn und wenige Stationen (ca. 13 Minuten) bis Times Square. Das sichere Viertel ist mexikanisch,verfügt über einen Supermarkt und kleinere Restaurants mittelmäßiger Güte (abends sitzen die Bewohner gern auf den Straßen, was dem Viertel eine sehr lebhafte Note verleiht).Sehr gut frühstücken kann man 2 U -Bahnstationen weiter im Uni Colombiaviertel. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt, obwohl das Apartment eher für 2 als für mehr Personen geeignet ist, da es mit 4 Personen und der ausziehbaren Schlafcouch im Wohnzimmer mit Küche und Essplattz doch arg eng wird. Der im EG wohnende Vermieter ist wirklich sehr hilfsbereit und akurat.

We (my wife, our daughter and me) stayed in the apartment from December 24, 2010 till January 5, 2011. Up on our arrival at the airport we called Ray and he met us at the apartment. He showed us the apartment and supplied us with a map of NYC on which he showed us important places like the supermarket around the corner and so on. He also supplied us with a phone to reach him any time necessary During our entire stay ray was available for us once needed. The apartment is well equipped and we didn't miss a thing. We can only highly recommend this apartment if you think to stay in NCY for a couple of days or more. A view good things to know: - Metro Card for one or two weeks and unlimited rides is highly recommended - the Supermarket at 11th street is bigger than the one around the corner and also a bit cheaper. You can easily get there as it is just near the metro station - Book important sights online and in advance (Statue of Liberty, Empire State Bldg). Otherwise you might run into timing problems and you can avoid long queues.

We booked this apartment online, because of the beautiful photos given with FeWo direct. Chik greeted us on arrival and gave a thorough run through of the apartment and then spent time explaining all about the area and what was available with regards to shops and eating. He also filled us in on the Subway and how to get around and provided us with a mobile to use for local calls and to contact him while we were staying. The apartment was big enough for 4 people to have a nice time during the trip to NYC. The subway was only a couple of blocks walk away and within 15 minutes you were at Time Square. We could happily recommend Chick and his apartment to anyone who is considering either a short or long term holiday in New York. Chic is really helpful and a lovely person. We enjoyed our trip to NY- City it was great and amazing .

Wir waren zu zweit für sechs Nächte in dieser Wohnung und haben uns sehr wohl und sicher gefühlt. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war bereits bei der Buchung und im Vorfeld ausserordnentlich zuverlässig und freundlich. Er hat uns bei unserer Ankunft persönlich empfangen und uns über die Wohnung und das Viertel aufgeklärt. Supermarkt und Subway gleich in der Nähe, einige Restaurants, Post und Internet-Café in näherer Umgebung. Die Wohnung ist gut ausgerüstet und gut betreut. Ein ausserordentlich gutes Bett und eine gut eingerichtete Küche sind ebenso selbstverständlich, wie ein schönes geräumiges Badezimmer.

Wir waren für 5 Tage mit 4 Personen in der Fewo. Bei der Begrüßung erhielten wir vom Eigentümer direkt viele wertvolle Tipps zu unsererm Aufenthalt. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet und die Küche hat alles, was man braucht. 2 Straßen weiter kann man in die U-Bahn Linie 1 einsteigen, die bis Downtown an allen wesentlichen Stellen vorbeifährt. MetroCard für 7 Tage nur 25 $. Supermarkt zum Einkaufen direkt um die Ecke. In diesem Viertel in Harlem spricht man vor allem Spanisch.

Your family can be assured of privacy, safety, cleanliness and convenience. The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways with the nearest only a 2 block, 2 minute walk. All destinations are only a few minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
