Awesome Garden Apt Next to Central Park (sleeps 4)

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This charming one bedroom has received rave reviews from renters in the first years of being on the rental market. It is not only located half a block from Central Park on a beautiful, tree-canopied street on the Upper West also has its own private and spaceous backyard garden!

A perfect romantic getaway, this apartment is also great for business trips and vacations to NYC for up to 4 people, even in winter. Available for long weekends or weekly rentals only.

This NON-smoking apartment has a 52" HD flat screen tv with expanded cable, air conditioning, high speed internet access, recessed lighting with dimmers, nice furniture, full-equipped kitchen, hardwood floors, queen-size bed in the bedroom, plus a futon foldout (also queen). Linens are provided as well.

Make your reservation now... as you probably have discovered that it is rare to find a quality apartment in a great neighborhood with private outdoor space in NYC. The picture of garden with hundreds of wildflowers is the look in spring. And the other photo of garden is the latest version during summer.

When you respond make sure to include your phone number and I will get right back to you.

I also have plenty of reviews that I can provide, if needed.

About The Owner

I live this apartment half the time, so it is kept up very well. I am gone about half the time to my home in Cape May... and so I share it with others who want to come and enjoy NYC at its best.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Manhattan

The location is convenient to everything. Close to subways, close to shops and restaurants and the world-famous Central Park is just half a block away!

What makes this apartment unique

With the unique opportunity of a back yard in NYC, I have created a private seating area to get away from the busy streets and activity in NYC. Just steps away is a grocery, drug store, cleaners and everything else you would need to make your stay amazing!

Great location and layout, but accommodations need an overhaul

  • 3 of 5

Large apt with a good layout at a fantastic location. Bed in bedroom and futon mattress were both extremely soft and uncomfortable. The bedroom window was Saran-wrapped closed, making for some stifling summer nights. Bedroom and bathroom doors could be planed so they closed all the way. For four people in Manhattan, it was a pretty good deal. But fixing these things would make this a really "awesome garden apt."

Owner's Response: Because I am not used to getting reviews with three stars, I will just say that I appreciate the affirmations in the review. As for the bed, it simply has a 2" topper on it, because so many people were requesting that option. I created a solution that would make it flexible. For anyone preferring a more solid sleep, the topper can be removed in one minute. Simple. As for the summer night, that is why I have an air conditioner and a fan... so that it also gives options. Opening the window only allows the humidity of summer to come into the house. If you prefer fresh air, there is the huge sliding glass door that can be opened to give you that option. I am in the apartment several days a week and the doors all closed when I left a few days ago... I am glad that most people find this a great place to spend their time in NYC... and price has been kept extremely reasonable for a garden apartment on the upper west side (half block from Central Park).

Loved the safe neighborhood so close to metro, dining, the park and all that NYC is famous for. Comfy bed, clean apartment, friendly and accommodating owner but the Garden area was the icing on the cake! If we come back my hubby and I will be looking to book here again.

A Lovely Week in New York

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised. The location was perfect for our needs (the proximity to two subway lines - not to mention Central Park - was a huge plus!) Ron was very helpful with answering all my questions and providing information about the apartment and the neighborhood (we loved his restaurant recommendations!) There were only two minor negatives - one was the neighbors above us (we were warned they had a child and may leave a stroller in the hall - we weren't warned that that child - or someone! - would be running back and forth above our heads at 11:00 at night!). The other - and it may have been our lack of "technical expertise" - was that we had difficulties operating the futon sleeper in the living room (not the one in this photo), which left me sleeping on a "hill" for most of the week! i'd highly recommend this apartment and would definitely return on a subsequent trip to New York.

Owner's Response: I just wish that people would write to me and ask for a resolution, such as the futon. I could have talked her through it in one minute. After the fact I am powerless to help. Thanks for the positives. Ron

Garden Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Plenty of room for 2-4 people.

Only downside is the heat!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. And yes, whenever there is steam heat in pipes, there are few noises that take place when it first turns on. Thank goodness it only lasts a few seconds. My Victorian homes in Cape May and Saratoga Springs do the same thing. All the best.
