  • First visit to NYC & with kids

    "Very happy with the stay at Robin's rental. Robin was a pleasure to rent from. Welcomed us warmly...and then gave us complete privacy. Never even heard them upstairs. The home itself--very much like staying at your aunts home. We rented the first floor-- a 2 bedroom unit of a large 3 story home for 6 nights. 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 10 &12). Very quiet place...so much better than a hotel for a light sleeper! Charming old fashioned home with high ceilings and a nice mix of modern (wifi, flat screen, updated kitchen, new comfy sofa, a/c) and traditional or antique furnishings. Everything was very clean and good working order. Kitchen well stocked beyond the bare bones usually found in vacation rental kitchens. Although I did not locate a cookie sheet, betting Robin would have provided one if I had asked. New mattresses the day we arrived which we found very comfortable, but are firm. If you prefer squishy beds, pack a topper. Queen bedroom spacious. Kids bedroom was super tiny but fine for 2 kids. They liked the twin trundle and preferred the 2 twins to sharing a hotel bed. Only thing we lacked was a 2nd bathroom, but no different than most hotel rooms. Loved having full kitchen/dining/living room and *free* parking in front of the house all week. Never an issue with parking. New key foods supermarket nearby...but you must drive. Smaller convenience stores nearby (walkable) but we preferred the key foods supermarket. Neighborhood walk from the house to the ferry takes 5 - 10 minutes & always felt safe. Ferry is super convenient, free, and runs every 20-30 minutes. Never waited longer than 10 minutes. About a 20 minute ferry ride. Always able to get a seat, and gorgeous views from the ferry. First time taking the ferry over we found the subway station just outside the ferry terminal bought our 7 day subway passes...and we were off. We explored most of lower and mid manhattan and brooklyn from the rental. Highly recommend seeing a staten island Yankees game while here. Wish we had more days to explore staten island itself, and the other bouroughs. Next trip!! We would rent here again, and if the kids ask for another NYC vacation we will try to rent from Robin again. Next time, we may opt to rent the small downstairs apartment too to give the kids a bit more space and gain a 2nd bathroom. Nearly perfect! Kids had a fabulous and memorable NYC trip. Thank you Robin - we had a very enjoyable stay."

  • NYC Upper Westside

    "My husband and I just returned from our first trip to NYC and we were so fortunate to have stayed at this wonderful apartment! The pictures do not do this property justice. It is located in a quiet neighborhood on the upper Westside, just half a block from the subway and Central Park. The apartment is very clean and located in a beautiful building. It is located on the 3rd floor so be prepared to climb a few stairs, but the back terrace makes it all worth it. It is very peaceful. The manager, Carlo, is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He was very welcoming to us and always had a smile. We will definitely return to this apartment the next time we are able to visit NYC!"
