The ultimate NYC experience
"What a special treat it was to spend a week in this spacious and comfortable home in my favorite neighborhood in New York City. Upon entering the apartment, it is very clear that you are in someone's home and that much thought has gone into making it attractive and comfortable. We were two couples and each of the bedrooms was comfortable and well appointed. And each had its own bath. While we did not cook, there is a well equipped kitchen. The location allowed for easy access to all that New York offers, whether it was getting to a Broadway theater in 15 minutes from a nearby subway station, getting on the crosstown bus just across the street to go to the east side museums or waving down a taxi when you (sadly) had to go to the airport and back home. There is everything you could possibly need located within a five minute walk, including excellent restaurants in all price ranges, a variety of grocery stores and many interesting shops. We found ourselves imagining how wonderful life would be if we actually lived in the apartment."

"Our family of 6 had a perfect stay in the apartment. From my little 3-year-old girl to my 72-year-old daddy, everybody felt comfortably at home there. The living room has two big fold out couches that we kept as our beds, without ever folding them during our stay, and this did not block the room, which is really big. The bedroom was left to my parents, who have really appreciated the huge bed and the silence surrounding the building at night. The kitchen has everything you need, even when you decide to prepare meals for everybody in the evening! The bathroom is clean and suitable. The neighborhood is really good, with a playground for the kids just across the street and a supermarket, a drugstore, a liquor store and some shops all around us. The subway is also nearby and we have used it everyday in different times never feeling unsafe or standing for more than 5 minutes on the platform. Most important of all, though, was Ray`s kindness to us, from the first email we have exchanged to the farewell in the taxi he himself got to take us to JFK. He really is always there and does his best to make you feel at home. We have appreciated his generosity throughout our stay there, in every detail, including information about getting around in NYC. We definitely recommend this apartment!"

"This was our second rental of Peter's apartment and we have been delighted each time. While we have also stayed in the East Village many times, UWS is a great area. Lots of upscale bars and restaurants as well as plenty with local flair. (And they just opened a branch of the Meatball Shop a block and a half north! Mmmmm!!) You wouldn't even have to ride in a taxi or walk far and you could be fully entertained for many days in a NYC kind of way without leaving the UWS. But this place provides access to the entire city thru cab or Uber, and the subway is one block away. We leave about 25-30 minutes before shows start in midtown and arrive with plenty of time before curtain. This apartment is stocked with all the hardware you need for eat and drink. Blender, microwave, etc. Beds are very comfortable, as are the soft towels. Bathroom is a little tight, but it is NYC. Kitchen is huge and the living room a nice place to sit if you wish to catch up on a little tv with a beverage between outings. You do hear sound of the city, well, because you are in a city. But it really takes us one day and we're adjusted. Peter is a pleasure to work with....VERY accommodating! His communication is also superb. Looking forward to our next visit!"

"I highly recommend this property. You will experience the best location and the best hospitality!! Fortunately, I had a chance to meet landlord family on my business trip to NYC before my Christmas holidays that I was planned to take my family. The family were very kind, not only show the property but guided me their neighborhood until late evening. Before I rent the property, we became just like an old friend through exchanging of emails with topics of our families. For your information, 1) Location: Perfect!! Just 5 minutes walk from Columbus station which is a hub of subway access everywhere you want to go. They have pharmacy and glossary stores in the next block, wonderful food market in the Time Warner building as well. So many restaurants hesitate to choose. The Lincoln Center located nest block, we enjoyed New York Philharmonic year-end concert just walked few minutes! 2) Property: High rise apartment with 24 hours doorman and concierge, clean, well furnished and you may find their hospitality everywhere such as sophisticated amenities and welcome drinks and snacks with warm letter. In conclusion, you can hardly ask for more than this for your great stay in NYC!!
