Recent Upper West Side reviews
Convenient location for exploring the city
"Location, 1 1/2 bathrooms and a patio. These were the selling points of this apartment for a 5 day trip with my husband and grandson. The location between 2 subway lines, near restaurants, markets and a block from Central Park couldn't be better. The patio was a private refuge after a day of sightseeing or for breakfast. Livia provided a notebook of recommendations for marketing and restaurants.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the 1/2 bath is actually a curtained off area in the master bedroom, so if privacy is an issue for you, the bedroom is unusable while someone is using the bathroom.
If reviewing this apartment on location alone, I would give it an Excellent rating. Because of some wear issues with towels, bedding & pillows and kitchen utensils, I'm giving it just a Good rating."

"I'm so glad I found and booked this apartment! It's hard to know where to stay in a city you aren't familiar with, right?! If you are looking for a clean, safe, well located apartment in NYC, look NO further than this one. The apartment was exactly as described in the listing and photos. It was so nice to be minutes from all the hustle and bustle (by subway) of the city without having to be in the middle of it. This apartment is located in the Upper West side with everything you could possibly want within walking distance. We walked to Central Park every morning to enjoy our coffee! The subway is located within walking distance as well. So many shops and restaurants to choose from too! If you want the experience of living in New York even if it's only temporary this is the place! My family of 4, 3 adults and 1 teenager had a blast. We were there to do the typical tourist things.
I would have given 5 stars, but the double bed in one of the rooms is really uncomfortable. It can't sleep 2 adults comfortably and really should be changed out for a new queen sized bed.
Other than that our stay was fabulous! Also we were able to arrange a little later checkout with the owner because we had later flights. He was very accommodating!
Look no further! Book now!"

"We just returned from our stay at Sheila and Bill's apartment and frankly, I feel like I can't add any more superlatives because they've all been said by previous guests and they are all true. Beautiful, spotless, comfortable, best location, wonderful hosts, smooth and seamless stay from arrival to departure. I consider this the best possible accommodation I could ever ask for in NYC. If you have the opportunity to stay here, you will be extremely happy."

"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!"
