Lovely place in great locatioin
"We stayed here for a long weekend as a family of four and really enjoyed it. The place has two small, functional bedrooms but a nice larger living room and kitchen area. Kitchen and bathroom were nice, clean and well-equipped and we liked having a washer/dryer. The location is family-friendly and quiet but perfect for all adventures of discovering Manhattan. It is wonderful to be so close to the park - which made for great morning runs - and to two subway lines (especially since 96St is an express stop). All communication with the owners was super easy and we were grateful for their local recommendations. The market at the corner served all our breakfast needs and the convenient table + chairs at the apartment helped us to save money by eating in. We were here during very hot August days and so we struggled a bit with the fact that the window-ACs were very loud and could hardly be left on during the night. So in addition to the squeaky bunk bend, sleep was hard to come by because it was always either too hot or too loud. Nevertheless, we would definitely return and recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing home while exploring Manhattan."

"This apartment is a great option for those who want to spend time in Lower Manhattan or Brooklyn. It is in the heart of the Lower East Side near the Wlliamsburg Bridge, with easy access to East Village, Chinatown, Little italy, Soho, etc etc. Twice we walked across the city to the West Village in under 30 minutes, casual strolling, passing through fascinating areas on the way. Very close to 2 subway lines also.
The apartment, as advertised, is large and clean and well furnished. Two TVs, excellent mattress, a hard-wired computer and 2 different WiFi networks. Clean is a big issue, as places in NYC are not always up to the standards of home, but this place is really clean! Awesome view to the west from the 18th floor - maybe all the way to Jersey?
As noted by others, the immediate surroundings are a bit grim - parking lots and other high-rise buildings, but at no time did we feel even remotely unsafe. It's a very user friendly area.
Ana, the landlady, is extremely helpful and co-operative. There was a little complexity surrounding our arrival time and she worked with us so we got the keys well in advance. One could not ask for a more accommodating owner; she made it all very easy. Even left us with a welcome basket of wine, beer and sundry junk foods.
The only qualification is that the cleaning fee ($100) is a bit high when compared to comparable listings in VRBO.
Overall, strongly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in the area."

"I need to second all of the nice things said about this apartment. The location is, indeed upscale, with everything you could want is located near by. Within reasonable walking distance are a host of fine restaurants, jazz clubs and beautiful Central Park. However, having your own private zen garden in th mists of Manhatten is just off the charts."
