Great spot for families of all ages

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this UWS apartment. This time we stayed with another family with 11 year old twins (mine are 5 years old) and there was something for everyone. We used the back patio and picnic table everyday for meals - plenty of indoor space for everyone as well. Great location with plenty of markets, restaurants, museums, the park all nearby. Dirk is great to deal with and is very accommodating. Apartment is exactly how it appears in the pictures. And with a washer and dryer right in the unit - it makes it very family-friendly.

Magical property in Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

This magnificent property is an oasis in Manhattan. Our family gathered from all over the world to meet for a memorial service. The beautiful garden terrace patio became a place of celebration and reunion. Spectacular and special. The home is beautifully located on the upper west side, close to great restaurants and bars but very quiet --- and close to the Children's Museum. Dirk is great to work with and he went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Highly, highly recommend!!!!

Wonderful Place for Spending Time w/ Family in NYC

My wife and I took our 2 young kids to NYC for a long weekend. We had a wonderful stay as the apartment has an excellent location and a very comfortable atmosphere particularly with access to the garden for our boys. Also - the landlord is very responsive and helpful.

Wonderful apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at Dirk’s apartment. We were five adults and one baby, and the space worked out beautifully for us. Dirk provided a crib and a stroller, had a child-gate for the stairs and a child-proof lock for the gate. The open space arrangement made it perfect for visiting and provided lots of room for a crawling baby to show off new skills. Having the back garden was a bonus; it is nicely landscaped and a lovely spot to hang out in. We cooked a few nights and the kitchen was well-equipped and a pleasure to work in. Being close to Central Park was fun--for walks and also for use of the playground. Really a great location. We would certainly like to stay in the apartment again and will recommend it to friends. Dirk was a great host.

Perfect Home Away from Home in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this property in April and it was so perfect for us. It is quite spacious for New York with nice natural light in much of the living spaces. We had our 1.5 year old with us and the space was perfect for him too. There were toys for him and safety protections, which was reassuring and made us feel much more comfortable in the home. The bedrooms were comfortable. The best part of the house is the location. It is very quite (rare for NY) and located just a half block from Central Park. This house was everything we had hoped and that was advertised and very homey.

Car: not necessary

Great to discover the Upper West Side (3 blocks from Natural History Museum), Central park (close to the jogging track at the Jacky Onassis Reservoir), as well as the Upper East Side (short walk through Park to Guggenheim etc). Many top restaurants in waking distance. Easy to get downtown: 2 blocks away from subway stop (B, C) and the red line is also close.
