I very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment… We loved how close it was to Central Park and the shops,great places to walk to… I think I would stay there again as it was good to be able to cook for yourself.People in the neighbourhood were very friendly and we got a FREE parking spot for the whole 3 days right outside the apartment a very big plus.
I spent two months in this apartment and had a wonderful stay. For me, the location was unbeatable -- two blocks from Central Park and three blocks from the 79th Street subway stop, close to Zabar's, Fairway, and lots of great restaurants. 15 minutes across the park to the Met. While this is what passes for a one-bedroom in NYC, it's actually one large room that has been divided in half with a bathroom at the far end of the bedroom and a "kitchen" carved out of one corner in the living room. Cooking was pretty much out of the question other than reheating and microwaving, but with Seamless and so many restaurant that will deliver, I didn't need to cook. The pictures are accurate, although the kitchen is a little tired. Because it's on the ground floor, you have to keep the lower blinds closed unless you want pedestrians to be able to see inside. The landlords were responsive to anything we needed and the other tenants in the building were very friendly.
We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. This is the second time we have stayed in NYC in the past 3 years, the first time being in the Financial District and this time on the Upper West Side. Only a couple of blocks from Central Park and the subway. Great neighborhood with plenty of restaurants and night life. Felt very safe. We were to Times Square via subway in under 15 minutes. Owners were great to communicate with and everything was as stated in their listing. Apartment clean and everything worked just fine. Would definitely stay and again and recommend the area. Not far from several sites in the "You've Got Mail" movie.
Apartment was in a great location. Close to Central Park, close to restaurants and a 2 block walk to the subway. The neighbourhood felt safe, and it was great for evening strolls. We walked every where. We even walked down to the theatre district, Rockerfeller Plaza and Times Square. It was a bit of a trek to walk that far but the weather was so nice we enjoyed the walking. For those who don't want to walk that far the subway is just down the street.
This apartment was the right size for the 2 of us. I think it would be fine for an extra child but 3 adults would feel pretty cramped.
The internet worked without a hitch.
Photos were accurate and it had all the amenities we needed for our stay
-the bedroom needs some new,real pillows. The pillows were very thin, no support and uncomfortable to sleep on. It was like there were no pillows at all. I advised Tony of the situation while we were there but never heard back from him.
-the couch needs a good cleaning and possibly updating. It's a beige couch in a rented apartment; you can see where it is worn and dark from sitting on. It doesn't look clean....which doesn't mean that it isn't.
FANTASTIC Location!!! Close to bus and subway, great restaurants nearby. Loved the apartment and would stay again.
Pictures are accurate. Jacuzzi tub was wonderful. Internet / TV was IFFY to non existent, even after following all the reset suggestions. Bed was Hard, to the point of feeling bruised after sleeping on it. Very few dishes and no regular glasses. Needs ice trays. Apt was clean and well maintained.
My two teenage daughters and I wanted to venture outside of our city of Seattle and chose to land in New York City for a seven-day vacation. I wanted to share with them the experience of embedding in a NYC residential community. I myself hadn't been to the city since 1990, barely a post teen at that time, so I too was looking to see what it's like to live in the City of New York. Thus, staying at a hotel was not an option. I was thrilled to find VRBO, to say the least. We had thousands of options, but we chose this unit, and I made the best choice for many reasons, and so should you. Here's why: The apartment is situated on a very quite residential street. I woke up on the sleeper sofa every morning hearing only birds chirping at 7A. I imagined there would be more hustle and bustle! The 10 ft windows gleamed with sunlight, overlooking this very quite street. Of course, I could have shuddered them, but why? The interior is mixed with new: beautiful wood flooring and tiled bathroom; and old: the woodwork around the fireplace and above the kitchen is true mastery from early 1910. The detail in the wood was remarkable. The bathroom housed all of my and my teenager's belongings with much more drawers and shelving left over, unused. The lighting in the bathroom is perfect: not too dark or not too bright, just perfect. The granite counter space is beautiful. My daughters stayed in the bedroom, which had lots of storage space. We unpacked and we each had more then enough space in this room for our shoes, clothing, suitcases, computers. The kitchen offers a host of amenities, there was nothing it did not have to offer that we needed. It served it's purpose, as we ate in most of the time. Fresh food was just around the corner, and priced below moderate, which surprised me, as I've heard "everything in New York City is expensive". Not true in this neighborhood. The building is secured with a camera above the stoop, which is comforting, yet I never felt unease walking the streets coming back from our adventure that day at sometimes 11, Midnight. The neighboring people, overall are very nice offering us smiles, pats to their dogs as we walked by at all times of the day. Subway stations are offered on each side of the street, depending on where you go. Commuting only by subway, we saw may stations. The stations close to this apartment (81st and 79th) were some of the cleanest, well-lit of them all. I need not look any further for a home-away-from home in NYC!
We loved the location of the appartment. About a 5 min walk to subway, less then that to dozens of resturants and pubs. Small park at the end of the block with central park just beyond that...about 5 min walk! There was a farmers market one morning by the small park. One end of our block had a deli and a coffee shop with great breakfast fare. The other end had several resturants and pubs. Could not hear any street noise from the bedroom and the bed was very comfortable. Felt very safe walking in this part of the city...no issues at all. We will try to stay in Tony's appartment during our next visit to NYC.

Interesting places abound nearby
Dreamy and evasive Cafe Lola on 83rd between Columbus and Broadway is where Tom Hanks dated Meg Ryan in You Got Mail. The pastry is as luscious and decadent as the French decoration. A must visit. Then around the corner you have the best Hazelnut coffee in town. The place is called Drip and do pay attention to the stationary computers and myriad of folders. It is one of the most ingenious dating concepts in a coffee shop.
Just walking down Columbus Ave you must take advantage of the exquisite Snapper presented at Calle Ocho between 82nd and 83rd Street on Columbus. It was spectacular and is a must treat. The oyster lovers will be pleasantly served on Columbus between 78th-79th Street at Ocean Grill with your own private fire place, find it and for a final enjoyment of privacy, find Cafe Artistes at 1 w. 67th. Of course, you must visit Central Park Boathouse restaurant which is located a stone throw away in Central Park off Central Park West and 70th Street. These are the secrets of the Upper West Side. Indulge this and don’t forget that Lincoln Center and the Shakespeare in the Park have free performances all summer long, every summer. Lincoln Center has live music bands outdoors on Lincoln Plaza for free for 4-6 hours each Saturday night during the summer' All from Salsa, Jazz, and Classical to anything that makes you move.
