Recent New York reviews

  • Quiet, Peaceful, Relaxing

    "My husband and I chose Church Pond for our first anniversary, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. We didn't want to stay in a hotel (we wanted to be able to make our own meals) and this was perfect. From the boats on the pond, the hot tub, the fire pit and the fully stocked kitchen- we couldn't have asked for a better place. We enjoyed every second of our mini vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of serenity with us! We hope to be back again!"

  • Perfect Cabin in the Woods

    "Nothing but great things to say about this cabin and Marlyn! The pictures just don't do this special place justice. It's secluded, but close enough to town - we even walked in one day. There's tons of space to accommodate a big group both for sleeping and spending time together. Marlyn was also a pleasure to book with - incredibly responsive and full of helpful information. Can't wait to go back in the summer to use the backyard and pool!"

  • THIS IS WHAT NYC IS ALL ABOUT!

    "FANTASTIC LOCATION!!! The unit exceeded our expectations providing a fully equip kitchen, tennis courts, basketball and Bocche courts, There are quite a few children's playgrounds, a great lawn with huge beautiful fountain. Just a very comfortable place for our party of six to dine in and the sleeping arrangements for a party of 6 were great. In comparison to a hotel stay, it was also more cost effective. I would absolutely recommend this apartment for families, corporate functions, friends and the alike."

  • The best house in long island for a large group to have a beautiful retreat

    "We have rented this wonderful family home two years in a row for our annual retreat. It is a truly beautiful and deeply special property that has given us great joy during our stays. The house sits on 8 acres of private park-like land on the water, with many deer and other wildlife sightings, and enjoys unbelievable sunrise and sunset views. The house is perfect for both winter and summer occasions, and has a wonderful kitchen for cooking big meals. The pool house is beautifully designed and looks out over the bay - a perfect place for gatherings. Every bedroom is very comfortable has an en-suite bathroom, which is rare for a house of this size. You can pull up boats with shallow hulls to the dock, and the house has several kayaks to take advantage of the bay. You can also go fishing or clamming. Fire Island is a short kayak trip or boat ride across the bay and has amazing beaches. So the house is perfect for those who want to sit by the pool or the fire, and perfect for those who like to be active. Everyone who has stayed at this house with us went home joyful and refreshed, and cannot wait to return. The owners and the property caretaker are incredibly gracious and helpful, and could not be easier to coordinate with. We highly recommend this property for any gathering, large or intimate, and consider it a real privilege to have been able to enjoy this one-of-a-kind home two years in a row."

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries.

Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person.
