About The Owner

Your hosts will be Cristina and Michael. Cristina is originally from Portugal and Michael from Austria. Both love to travel and do not like to stay in hotels. Through this passion they have aquired apartments in Vienna - Austria, Sesimbra - Portugal and Buenos Aires. They have turned this passion into a business and want to provide their fellow travellers with what they would expect in a vacation rental: A clean, affordable and comfortable home!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Manhattan

In their NY apartments extra special care was taken to

1. furnish a first class bed with high thread count linens,

2. make sure the noise of the city is at a minimum,

3. be in their neighbourhood, the Upper West Side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The studio -- and the building -- are quiet, clean, and super-convenient to everything. Subway stop half a block away, and a terrific neighborhood for browsing, shopping, eating, and walking. Miriam is wonderful -- accessible, helpful, and local to handle any questions or issues. Small things really made this place extra enjoyable: the hot water actually gets hot and warms up quickly. The elevator is quick and available. There's a vestibule that you enter off the street, so you're inside -- not standing on the sidewalk or in the weather -- as you're getting out your key and opening the lock to the front door. The little fridge keeps things cold. There are plenty of hangers in the closet. The bathroom is pretty spacious (for NYC) and the toilet paper and paper towels are not the thin, cheap type. It's easy to find where to put trash/garbage. (None of these are things you can take for granted in a VRBO apartment or NYC hotel!) Note that although there are plenty of places to get coffee within half a block or less, if you're someone who needs to make coffee before you leave the apt in the morning, be sure you know how to work a French press --- it's not hard, just different from a drip machine. I loved my stay here -- I'd especially recommend it to someone traveling alone.

Upper West Side Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

The studio is perfect for anyone wanting to experience the city. The bed was big and comfortable. The decor and functionality were perfect. We just wished we could've stayed longer! Walk to Central Park after you stop by Levain Bakery for the cookie of your dreams. It was such a picturesque part of the city. You're near it all without having the hustle right on your face when you're ready to turn in.

Terrific studio

Terrific, well equipped studio, excellent location. 10 minute walk to Lincoln Center, 72nd St subway very close, plus grocery stores in neighborhood. Would return in a heartbeat.

The location couldn't be better. It is very, very small, but OK for the price. But the owners make no attempt to keep the property up and that substantially reduced the quality of our week-long stay. Among the problems were: toilet seat broken, shades broken, windows almost impossible to open or close, not enough electric outlets, refrigerator freezer frozen solid with accumulated ice, light over sink had no bulb, intercom didn't work, there were no instructions on how to work TV or anything else, there was ONE potholder, the mattress protector was one of those cheap crinkly things, and the toilet paper was one ply and cheap even at that. With only a few dollars and a little attention this could be a good deal, but the owners don't seem interested.

Owner's Response: Sharon, my direct phone number is on your welcome email and in the apartment. Had you called me I am nearby and responsive and could have shown you how the intercom and the TV (and its Time Warner Cable remote) works. We do work very hard to make sure the apartment is clean and comfortable, very sorry you did not enjoy your stay.

Great location, comfortable beds, nicely appointed, clean...

  • 4 of 5

Great place and location. It had many conveniences because of the location, subway station, safe parking on the same street, Trader Joe's just around the corner, two blocks from the park, loved Bin 71 wine bar, overall would go there again. While it needs a little upgrading, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable, with great little kitchen area ( no lack of utensils, stuff). Already missing NYC as we drive back to Canada.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Great location for grabbing the bus or subway to see the sights of NY. Only a few blocks from Central Park. We love to travel and live how the locals live. Cooking was a plus for us. The kitchen was well appointed, however, just make sure the pots, pans and plates are clean before you use them. We did have one issue that was taken care of immediately. That was greatly appreciated. We have and will again rent an apartment where ever we travel. I would recommend this apartment to others.
