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.

Beautifully decorated oasis in the heart of Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

We loved living like New Yorkers for a month, and this apartment was the perfect home base. It's in a great location—close to shopping, theater, museums, dining, and public transit (not to mention Central Park and Riverside Park)! Vera was an incredibly gracious host who made us feel welcome and ensured we were well taken care of. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a homey, neighborhood experience—for a short- or long-term stay. I hope we can come back again!

Cozy Upper West Side Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean, organized, comfortable and simple (which we like). It contained everything we needed except a hair dryer (multiple towels, pillows, dishes) and a guide on how the heck to turn on the tv! (Although the owner had provided her phone # and written not to hesitate calling but we didn't). Very quiet street half a block from Central Park West, 2 blocks from 96th St subway. It was HOT outside and tho the A/C didn't blast it definitely kept us cool and comfortable and it's not loud. Water pressure is adequate with plenty of hot water. This is a 2 story walk up with windows over the street. We did not hear any noise from neighbors. Bedroom is tiny - just enough space for queen bed with nightstand on one side. Good linens, mattress and pillows. Closet had a dresser in it and ample room for hanging clothes. Overall, we were really comfortable and pleased and would not hesitate to stay here again.

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.

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.
