About Roger and Nancy

While we are not native New Yorkers, we have lived all over New York city for nearly 35 years. After two decades of apartment-living in Brooklyn and Manhattan we opted for a house to raise our kids, now all living on their own. We've been vrbo and home away renters ourselves for our family's travels and we appreciate what renters look for, and expect, in a vacation home. Our home- recently listed- has been successfully rented for thanksgiving and Xmas/New year holidays in 2014 and we have bookings through April 2015.

Roger and Nancy purchased this house in 1994

Why Roger and Nancy chose New York

The house is a 1920 Dutch Colonial with period details and all modern upgrades. It has an open living, dining and sunroom great for family gatherings .House is very well- equipped, convenient to all in the NYC and metro region and spacious enough for a family or a family reunion.

We especially welcome weekly rentals.

We personally greet our renters, leave extensive notes and suggestions and are always available for questions or issues that may arise.

What makes this house unique

It's nearly impossible to find an affordable vacation apartment in the city large enough to accommodate a family, or an extended family. Our home, with its beautiful yard and hot tub, makes life after a hectic day in the city truly relaxing. Our location is minutes by car from the upper east or west sides of manhattan, and 25 minutes by train to midtown, Grand Central Station. Our house is one (1) block from the train which is safe and reliable.

Christmas in New York!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home over the Christmas holiday and were very pleased with the home. Home was very quaint and in a nice quiet neighborhood. We had 6 people staying in the home and had adequate sleeping for all of us. We definately appreciated the long table - perfect for a family Christmas meal. We also loved that there were several seating areas which allowed for great visiting! If weather had been a bit warmer, it would have been fun to enjoy the beautiful patio outside and spacious yard. Owners were great to deal with and they returned deposit in a timely manner. Home was clean from top to bottom....2.5 baths is soo nice with a family! We give this home 2 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great location and house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful Pelham area house for the Thanksgiving week. There were 5 of us (my youngest is 19) and it worked out really well. This house is absolutely perfect for a family of 5. Located in southern Westchester County, it is steps away from the Metro North train and short 19 minutes train ride into Grand Central so closer to many parts of Manhattan than the upper west side. The house is lovely, updated kitchen and appliances, nicely furnished and wanting for nothing. It is within walking distance of good restaurants and shopping. Our hosts Roger and Nancy waited to great us after our airport delay and couldn't have been more welcoming and gracious. We hope to come back again and again.

Amazing house, perfect location, everything you'd need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Roger's house for a week and it was truly amazing. The house itself is charming - old world style and charm in every way. Each of the bedrooms is perfectly sized, and there's also the finished attic which can serve as an extra hideaway. Though it didn't have central AC (understandable for a house from this era), the window units were more than sufficient - we didn't have to move them off low on even the hottest of days. There's great common space on the first floor - including a living room, a sun room, a dining room, and a completely remodeled and modern kitchen. Who could ask for more? Oh yeah - the location... a true 5 minute walk to the train and downtown Pelham. Roger was always responsive and easy to engage with. Would definitely stay here again if I had the chance.

Perfect home for our visit

  • 5 of 5

This home suited our needs perfectly by offering enough bedrooms and space for our family. We felt

Right at home. The train is so close and convenient allowng us to vacation without a car. The restaurants and store are awesome and within walking distance. A back pack helps with schlepping the groceries back. We even made it to the nearby movie theater. It is a very nice and safe neighborhood. We felt very comfortable and had a wonderful time. Roger was very responsive and pleasant to do business with. We highly recommend this property and will definitely consider another stay if the occasion arises.

Ideal location for NYC and lower Westchester.

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house as we had a graduation ceremony nearby. Easily commuted into Manhattan from the nearby train station, Metro North, five minute walk with trains leaving every 30 minutes for 30 minute ride into Grand Central. "Downtown" Pelham has small town feel with shops, restaurants, and bars, also five minute walk from the house. Roger responded quickly to emails and was an ideal host for an ideal location.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent for my family who was coming in from California for my daughter's graduation. The location was excellent to go to New York City and it was also close to downtown Pelham.

The home was very clean and the remodeled kitchen was great for the few meals that we cooked. The house is also located on a quiet woodsy street so you don't get much noise or traffic. Roger thanks for making your home a great vacation home for my family.
