Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Completely renovated one-bedroom, two flights up, in a lovely upper west side townhouse ideal for couples looking to enjoy the New York experience. The tree-lined street, just steps from Central Park, is an instant getaway from the constant hustle and bustle that make Manhattan unique. It's a well-known street-one of the most unusual on the upper west side-and has been pictured in several major Hollywood films, including 'You've Got Mail.'

Just out the front door is our own specialty market for fresh fruits, vegetables, prepared foods, etc., run by two dashing Greek brothers who are out of central casting. Nearby are well-known upper west side restaurants like Gabriella's where you can sit in or out and enjoy a late afternoon margarita, Roth's Steakhouse, Trattoria Pesce Pasta, Gennaro's and the famous Carmine's with its family-style dining.

The apartment itself is comfortable and warm and thoroughly modernized with state-of-the-art appliances, including full sized washer/dryer, granite counters, lots of natural wood, an exposed brick wall to remind you of its construction at the turn of the century, leather living room furniture and a flat screen high definition TV. The bath is all marble, and no expense has been spared to provide the most comfortable queen-size bed.

There are two major subway lines nearby on Broadway and Central Park West. It's five minutes on the Broadway express to Times Square, a few more minutes to the Village and Soho. There a several bus lines within one block, and taxis are available outside the door, though you can take a leisurely stroll through the park to the Metropolitan Museum or saunter down Columbus Ave. to the Natural History Museum.

Please note that the apartment is suitable for one couple or single occupancy only. There are no accommodations for separate sleeping arrangements.

It looks just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the stairs 😩?, the apartment was great! We did a little shopping at the market on the corner and were able to have breakfast every morning before venturing out to the city. I was a little surprised that there was no hair dryer. I must have misread the description. Because we had already been traveling for 10 days by the time we got there, we really appreciated the washer/dryer. The apartment was in a safe location, close to subways and, most important to us, close to the park! Plenty of towels available. We thought the bed was comfy. And, my hubby found the couch comfy since he accidentally feel asleep on it one night!😊? Vera is very sweet and sent out a great little letter with her neighborhood favorites that we appreciated. I wish it were two bedrooms since we would love to come back with our daughters someday. That said, when my hubby and I make our way back, we will definitely look to see if this apartment is available again.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this apartment! It is in a safe, convenient location. There is so much to do nearby, and the subway is only two blocks away. The apartment is beautiful and quite spacious! If you're looking for a place to stay, I highly recommend this place!

Great apartment on the Upper West Side

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our apartment. The apartment itself was as lovely as the VRBO pictures. The location was fabulous...less than one block from Central Park and in a delightful neighborhood. It’s an easy walk from the apartment to two subway stations, providing access to just about anywhere you’d want to go in Manhattan or Brooklyn. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Compact but well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our choice for a one-week stay in NY. The apartment is ideal for a couple, with comfortable sitting area, full kitchen, etc. and a decent bed. Great to have a separate bedroom if one of you gets up earlier than the other. There is no table or desk, but there is a breakfast bar with stools - a little uncomfortable but adequate. Apart from a hair-dryer, everything else you need is provided, and the apartment was clean. The neighbourhood is great if you want a relatively quiet retreat from the bustle of the city, but still very much part of it. Central Park is at the end of the block, and there is an excellent food store just doors away, and plenty of restaurants nearbye. The area is convenient to all the sights, with a choice of subways, and some attractions within walking distance - e.g. its a lovely walk through Central Park to visit the Guggenheim.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was truly our 'home away from home' The kitchen is missing nothing. Even a washer/dryer to go home laundry free. The location is PERFECT. We love to walk and even walked to Lincoln Center several times. Everything you need is walking distance including two different subway lines PLUS we discovered Whole Foods only 2 blocks away...AND it is QUIET!!! Nothing about this place will disappoint you. thank you Vera and Joe. We are already looking to see when we can come back.
