3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
I live with my husband and two children in New York City's Upper West Side. We live in a 2-family brownstone. We live in one apartment and rent the other to people visiting. We love to travel.
Owner purchased this Townhome in 2002
What makes this Townhome unique
Enjoy the residential feeling of living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Close to Central Park and Riverside Park, public transportation, museums, restaurants and shopping. Enjoy this great city while getting a true flavor of what it would be like to live here.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We enjoyed our stay in NYC. Jamie was quick to respond to any questions we had. The apartment was just as we expected. So close to the subway, walks to the park. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Thank you for being a wonderful host
Even with the rain New York City is magical
Loved the location. Thank U for allowing us to share your family home.
Great home base
This place is fantastic! The location is really perfect- right between the red and blue/orange lines. It's just a block and a half from the park and super close to a Trader Joe's. The apartment itself is quite large compared to the other homes I've been in and one of my favorite things about it was that the whole building has a single owner. We booked Jamie's home the night before we got to the city. Another renter cancelled on us the day before our flight when she asked us to lie about our relationship so she wouldn't get in trouble with the board of her building and we refused. Lesson learned- beware of co-ops. That, plus how accommodating Jamie is with leaving bags there after check out is a huge plus for me, especially with a later flight and 3 small kids.
While we don't typically spend much time where we are lodging it is always really nice to have a kitchen and the two bathrooms was a life saver a couple of times. We didn't use the basement much except for the bathroom and shower. I had 2 kids on the futon and the smallest on the couch (my kids like to be close when we're in unfamiliar places). The street side bedroom is noisy and bright, but honestly not a surprise when you're staying in the city. We purchased a box fan to drown out the noise and that worked really well.
One of the blinds in that same bedroom would not easily go up and I think one of the screws in the upper support was loose or gone, but as that room is at street level we would never have left the blinds open anyway. Also, the bed in that room is not terribly comfortable. I think it is an issue of it being a wall bed. I'm certain the downstairs bed would have been much more comfortable.
I can see how having the dining area might be awkward for multiple families staying in one place, but it was not an issue for us. It was nice to have a place where I could sit my kids down to do a little school work in the mornings or evenings.
Another huge plus is the dishwasher! We usually only eat out once a day when we're there and a dishwasher is so nice to have. We only had to run it a few times during the week. I'd totally stay here again.
Pictures don't do it justice
This property is great. Second time we've stayed there. Everything is clean, and whatever you might needs is in the kitchen. I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in NYC. Location is great on the Upper West side. Convenient to anything you want to do.
Comfortable Spacious Family Place
The first impression walking into this apartment was how bright, clean and well -organized it is. My daughter and her boyfriend who live in Brooklyn were in awe of the amount of space here in the heart of Manhattan. This is by far the most space I have seen in my years of visiting NYC and staying in short-term rentals. It is very well equipped: the kitchen has everything you need; the bathrooms have plenty of towels; the living room and bedrooms have plenty of media and books for every age. The subways are a short walk away. There are good restaurants and markets very close by. I don't know what more one could want for a great stay in the city! The hosts live in the building and are gracious and responsive.
Well located, very comfortable, spacious, well stocked kitchen and accommodating and responsive host
We prefer staying on the upper west side and this visit confirmed the wisdom of our choice. The apartment was extremely spacious and well appointed. And its convenient position between two subway lines made traveling around easy. The wall of windows on the back side provides tons of light and the downstairs bedroom is large, cozy and quiet. The beds were also very comfortable.
