About Ray Wick

I host 75-80 families and small groups of friends each year in my Apartments. All my guests have been very happy with the Apartment's large space to spread out and relax, the location, and its convenience. Many guests comment that it was a great experience to live in a genuine NYC neighborhood and feel the atmosphere, without the tourists & commercial distractions of mid-town. I live nearby so I am always available to you during your stay. I'm sure your group will be happy in my Apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I fully recommend this accommodation when staying in NYC. The apartment was roomy, clean, very comfortable, the neighborhood is very nice and quiet, with lots of deli's and restaurants nearby. The nearby subway station takes you downtown in about 25 minutes. And Ray, the host, was the best! Very nice, accommodating, open to give advice on anything from suitable restaurants, pizza delivery, yoga studios etc. He's just a super nice guy and I would stay here again next time without any doubt!

Comfortable, perfect location, caring owner

  • 5 of 5

Rays apartment is a perfect place for a family to stay. We were 3 adults and 1 child, enjoyed the comfortable, stylish, clean apt with all amenities you need. Surprisingly much space, quite, safe area, with only some steps to the next sub-station which brings you downtown in about 20 minutes. Ray and his wife are perfect hosts, care about everything you might need. Highly recommend the apt, would return at any time. Thank you, Ray!!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Ray was a great host. He kept in contact from the moment we reserved, up until the day before we traveled to NYC. He was there to greet us upon our arrival at his apartment and was very thorough in going over information in the "binder."

The apartment itself was great. Very cozy and comfortable. I slept on the sofa pull out bed and it was extremely comfortable. The apartment had all the toiletries and linens that we needed and Ray also mentioned that if there was anything we needed, all we had to do is ask. It was great to have a kitchen available. The only suggestion I would make to Ray would be to maybe provide coffee and creamer and other basic kitchen staples like salt, pepper, sugar, etc. Would make it so much easier than having to buy those things for our stay.

Other than that, our stay was great and if I ever have the opportunity to visit NYC again, I will certainly reach out to Ray.

The apartment was very comfortable for our one week stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was close to the 137th Metro line 1 where we felt safe walking to catch the subway to downtown Manhattan. Ray, the owner, was very informative in showing us all of Manhattan highlights on the map on our first day. It was very helpful to understand the whereabouts of each neighborhood borough when taking the subway. Thank you, Ray!

This HomeAway is perfection

  • 5 of 5

As a HomeAway experience this property is the definition of perfection ! Ray is outstanding with his communication before arrival, the apartment is spotlessly clean, very comfortable, best of all quiet in the city. Ray and his wife are both friendly and most helpful with telling us how to get around the city, which made our stay even better. It is only 3 blocks from the subway which made it so easy for us to get around the city. He even arranged a cab for us to get to the airport at the end of our stay. Thank you Ray for making our stay the best I have had in NYC. Looking forward to seeing you in the future.

Our First New York Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to stay at Ray's apartment for our first visit to New York. We are from Georgia, and wanted to experience all that New York had to offer. When we got there, Ray met us at the door and showed us around the place. It was very nice and clean, and it looked just like the photographs. After showing us around, Ray sat down with us and showed us how to get around in NY. That was extremely helpful to us because we really had no clue. We both felt very safe in the apartment, and the subway was just a block away. We rode that same subway into Time Square, Ground Zero, and to see the Statue of Liberty. It was extremely convienent. Ray was very nice and even kept our bags for us after check out since we had a later flight and wanted to spend more time in the city. I highly recommend Ray's place. The price is so affordable and it is just all in all a great place. Thank you so much Ray for making our first trip to New York a wonderful experience!!

What a New York City Find!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations in a great neighborhood and on the main subway line to everywhere within minutes. Our host was like a personal concierge, always available, always accommodating, never intrusive. He had great money saving and getting around tips. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and beds are high quality and very comfortable. Always unsure about what you will find in NYC but this apartment is a real gem, the best we have found. We'll be back!
