  • Outstanding location and 100% as promised.

    "We stayed at the Chelsea property in late October 2014 for 6 nights and could not have been happier. All aspects of our initial inquiry, the booking, making payment, access to the property and advice was first rate. The apartment itself was as promised and in fact better than the photos showed. The kitchen is fully equipped with EVERYTHING you would ever need for a stay. My partner was keen to cook in one night, but why would you with all of New York right outside the door. The bed and pillows are all fine and because the bedroom is at the rear of the apartment, it’s very quite. The bath tub is fantastic and was frequented by my tied body after long days exploring New York. Having a washing machine and dryer in the apartment was also a great benefit. Internet access was an important feature for us and it was reliable and fast. There is also plenty of storage cupboards in the apartment which allowed us to unpack and not live out of our suitcases. Right outside the front door you have restaurants, cafes, supermarket and of course shopping. Importantly for us was the easy access to the Subway which consistently allowed us to move around New York quickly. We found the Subway safe both at night and during the day, as well as the streets in general around Chelsea. A big thank you also for allowing us to keep our luggage at the apartment for a few hours after check out. This allowed us to squeeze a few more shopping hours in before we departed back to Australia. Thank you for having us stay and we absolutely recommend the apartment to anyone travelling to New York."

  • Fantastic Studio Apartment!

    "My husband and I just spent 5 nights here and had a wonderful time. Tim is the perfect host, very responsive and attentive and at the same time, not at all intrusive. The photos are accurate and the apartment nicely decorated and very comfortable. A/C works great, firm mattress on the bed, cozy couch, and really good water pressure in the shower. Suggestions would be to add a couple of ice trays (unless we just overlooked them) and maybe some new towels. I'd love to keep this place a secret but if you're thinking of booking it, don't hesitate...you won't be disappointed! We had so much fun and want to thank you again, Tim. Jeff & Rita D."

  • Wonderful experience!

    "I stayed in this apartment last month and I can guarantee you, it's exactly as advertised. Great location, clean and charming apartment with all the amenities working. Its spot in the heart of New York just makes it more ideal for those who want to experience this city at its best. I and my friends had a great time shopping and going to the theaters near the area. The restaurants in the neighborhood also boast a few of the best New York has to offer . Communicating with the host is smooth as she responds immediately. Thank you for the wonderful experience!"

  • Great appartment on Upper West Side

    "This is the second time my wife and I have stayed in this apartment during our annual trip to NYC. IT is well appointed, exactly what we need for a week long stay. Full kitchen, full sized washer/dryer, queen size bed. It is a few blocks from 123 and AC/BD subway stops. It is clean and quiet. Vera and Joe are efficient in handling reservations and providing you with access to the apartment. They also provide good recommendations on neighborhood restaurants and shopping."

Manhattan Travel Tips

Known as the cultural and economic hub of the United States, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. Even though it’s the smallest of the five, it’s personality and "never sleep" attitude has made it one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan locales on earth.

Manhattan is full of history, culture, excitement and thrilling experiences. It’s the home of famous landmarks and economic staples. From the United Nations to the Chrysler Building, Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and the glittering lights of Broadway, there is more than enough to satisfy every traveler who visits the island no matter what their interests are.

Whether you hail a taxi, take to sidewalk or hop on the city's famous subway, days can be filled with perusing through different shops, dining at the finest restaurants and seeing some of the best theater in the country.

Areas of Manhattan to Explore

Broadway: This neon-tinged boulevard is best known for its portion that houses block after block of venues in the theater district. It’s the oldest north-south thoroughfare in New York City. The theater district, also known as the Great White Way, is home to several Broadway theater that produce large-scale musicals and plays that attract theater goers from all around the world.The bar is set very high in Manhattan when it comes to the stage, so even if you venture to an off-Broadway production, no doubt you will be impressed.

Central Park: When you think of Manhattan, chances are images of Central Park come to mind. This massive green space has been at the heart of the Big Apple since the mid-19th century. In 1962, Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark. It’s the perfect place to experience nature and get some fresh air away from the skyscrapers. You can wander through here on an afternoon stroll, enjoy a picnic, take a carriage ride or play a pick-up game of baseball. Children will enjoy a ride on the carousel or playing at one of the 21 playgrounds in Central Park.

Rockefeller Center: In the winter, Rockefeller Center features the country’s most famous Christmas tree under which people can enjoy ice skating around the rink or sip hot chocolate. It’s also the home of Radio City Musical Hall and the popular Rockettes, who perform a Christmas spectacular as well as other shows year-round.

Greenwich Village: For all things offbeat, there is no better spot in Manhattan than Greenwich Village. Once home to beatniks and hippies in the 1960s, this neighborhood hasn't lost its alternative edge over the years. Pop into an Irish pub, live music venue or dive bar, grab a slice of authentic New York pizza or enjoy one of the best collections of ethnic cuisine in the country.{I added this to include more of the island geographically}

Times Square: Also in Midtown you’ll find Times Square, a major commercial intersection at Broadway and 7th Avenue stretching from West 42nd to West 47th streets. Known as the “Crossroads of the World,’ Times Square is situated near the theater district and has some of the busiest pedestrian traffic in the country. If you’re in the city on New Year’s Eve, there’s no more famous place to watch the ball drop than Times Square itself.

Famous Landmarks to See in Manhattan

Empire State Building: Standing 102 stories tall in Midtown, the Empire State Building is hard to miss, and has become one of the cultural symbols of New York as well as the United States. It’s considered a structural marvel designed in the Art Deco style and is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. Visitors can take in panoramic views of Manhattan from the 86th or the 102nd floor observation decks. The breathtaking urban vistas here are considered to be very romantic and created the setting for many famous love scenes in movies like "An Affair to Remember" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Statue of Liberty: The ultimate symbol of freedom and America, no trip to Manhattan is complete without a visit to the State of Liberty. It was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and given to the United States as a gift from France. Lady Liberty captured the spirit of American progress, as she welcomed immigrants and visitors to the United States through Ellis Island during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Visitors enter through the statue’s base and can climb the stairs to the crown to take in the views of the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Zoo: For an activity the whole family can love, visit the Central Park Zoo. This wild attraction is the perfect place to witness some of your favorite creatures up close and personal. The main exhibit areas range from polar to temperate to tropic. You can experience a rainforest with fruit bats and anteaters, the penguin house, the polar bear pool and an ant colony. There’s also a children’s zoo for younger kids to enjoy.
