Perfect NYC Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal apartment! It has every modern amenity and is wonderful for a family. It is spacious and easily accommodates a family of six, and is exactly as depicted. It is also a great deal for this amazing location in Manhattan!

The apartment is very clean and well appointed. The owner is also wonderful and accommodating in all respects.

It is an amazing location - so close to the park and also to Lincoln Center with restaurants and stores, coffee shops, and even Trader Joe's nearby. The neighborhood is quiet and very safe. There is so much to do in walking distance from the apartment!

I highly recommend it and our whole family can't wait to return!

Great location clean spacious unit.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying on the upper west side for a fun filled month. Everything is in walking distance to this apartment. Park right down the block. Saw Lady GaGa twice as her fathers restaurant is directly across the street.

San Francisco

Great place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Assuming you know what to expect in a NY rental (i.e. it will be smaller than renting in San Diego) you will love staying here. We had 2 adults and 2 kids and it was big enough given we were out and about most of the time. Our only caveat (that Rob would point out) is that if you have very young children (under 5?) the steps to the lower level are very steep and you have to be careful letting them go up / down.

When we got there the AC units (upstairs and downstairs) were on and they worked well (key for a summer rental). And they kept the place comfortable throughout our stay.

Everything in the unit was in good shape and worked well. The upstairs in particular had everything we needed: big-screen TV, dishwasher, gas oven/stove, big sink, lots of dishes, etc. Both bathrooms were full bathrooms (upstairs with tub) which was great for our family.

Downstairs was our sleeping quarters only. Three beds. All comfortable with easy access to the downstairs bathroom and, a major upgrade from last year's apartment, emergency exit doors downstairs. Okay, maybe I'm nervous but not having a way out of the unit if there is a fire upstairs is a bit scary. This has that covered.

Codes for the doors means no keys to worry about. Location is upper west side so easy walking distance to everything we cared about.

We would highly recommend this unit. Everything from start to finish was easy, we had a great visit, and appreciated Rob making it such an easy process.

Our Family Loved It!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place! Beautiful location just close enough to all the sites without being in midtown. Nice quiet walk to Central Park great bakeries, coffee shops wine shop and restaurants within short walking distance. Owner Rob was very accommodating and has everything you'll need - even a corkscrew for that bottle of wine we bought down the street. Subway stations very close by 59th and 72nd on the C train. We would stay here again if we went back to the city.

New York City Brownstone

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of five staying at this location and it was perfect. There was lots of room for all of us to spread out after busy days touring the city. The location was perfect, it was only a couple minutes away from Central Park, great restaurants and the metro. Everything was clean and well equipped. While we were there it was extremely hot and the air conditioners in the building did a great job keeping the place cool. We would definitely return.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Three adults and three children stayed in this apartment for 8 nights and it was WONDERFUL. The location was great...a block away from Central Park and one subway line (a loooong block....not used to that!), and a couple of short blocks away from another subway line. The area is quiet for Manhattan, but is convenient for most anything you need. Coffee, restaurants, laundry, walking, etc. are right out the door. The apartment was very clean when we got there, and the two full bathrooms were just what we needed for our trip. There was a very comfortable bed, a very comfortable murphy bed, and two pull-out sofas. The stairs between the two floors were a little steep, so my husband with some mobility problems stayed upstairs on one of the pullout sofas. Three televisions for some down time :)

The host was very easy to communicate with, and was very clear with the instructions. If we ever make it back to NYC we would definitely plan on staying here again (maybe 3 years from now.....).
