"My wife and I found Richard and Alice's apartment to be the perfect home base for our week-long stay in NYC. Its central location, just a block from MOMA and a few blocks from Central Park and the Theater District proved ideal for our needs as we could walk to many of our destinations. The tastefully decorated space felt like home with its original artwork, comfortable furniture, well-stocked kitchen and commodious storage all welcoming us like old friends. Speaking of welcome -- their son-in-law greeted us on our arrival and took us through the immaculate space, providing us with basic information on the operation of the various appliances, air conditioning units, etc. and answering our questions. The owners generously included an assortment of complimentary food such as coffee, milk, bread, fresh fruit, and a bottle of wine along with basic spices and condiments for our use. They also provided a mid-week house cleaning service which included fresh sheets and towels and vacuuming and dusting -- a welcome extra which enhanced our stay.
All of the neighbors we encountered in the building, from the building super to those we met in the lobby and elevator were friendly, kind, and welcoming. We had a wonderful seven days in New York, packed with activities and adventures. The fact that we could return to an apartment that felt like home at the end of each activity allowed us to rest and recuperate to be ready for the next adventure. We have stayed in numerous VRBO properties throughout the United States and Europe. We place Richard and Alice's apartment among the best of them and we put Richard and Alice at the top of list of hosts. They provided us with outstanding accommodations and were always available to answer our questions to insure that our stay at their apartment would be amazing... IT WAS!!"

"Yes, this is a bit tight space for 3+ people, but it is clean & the location is great. 2 blocks from subway station. The patio here is an awesome bonus. The hostess, Iris, was extremely helpful, & answered text questions right away.
We had booked our vacation in advance & my husband had a last minute medical emergency that delayed our trip ny 3 days. The owner allowed us to stay hete until our original check out time (they eere already booked after our stay), & allowed us to use the rest of our paid days at another property w/o any prnalties. We really appreciated their working with us. We enjoyed our stay in NYC."

"My wife and I went to NYC to visit our daughter (who lives in Brooklyn) and to see some shows. The apartment is comfortable (air conditioning works very well) and beautiful (especially the view from the balcony). It is also very conveniently located, with Lincoln Center (where we went to two performances) essentially next door. There is a subway station only a 15 minute walk away, so it is very easy to get to Broadway (where we saw two plays). Coming home from Broadway was only a $10 cab ride (not including tip). There is also a grocery store just around the corner that stays open till 10 p.m.
What really made our stay special was how wonderful a host James was. My wife and I have had very good luck with VRBO both in the US and Europe. But, James was, by far, the best host we have encountered. The apartment is very well stocked with coffee, sweeteners, condiments, towels, toiletries, tour books and maps of NYC, and numerous other items that made us feel truly at home. There were even umbrellas, which were very helpful during the deluge we encountered one day.
We are already planning our trip back to NYC next year, and will definitely stay there again. We highly recommend this wonderful place."
