Lovely home in a great location. Big, spacious rooms. Very clean. You really feel you're at home.

  • 5 of 5

A grand home with fireplaces, brickwalls, high ceilings and lovely artwork. Location couldn't be better if you want to feel like a "real" new yorker and not just a tourist. The bedrooms are spacious and cozy, all at the same time. Big walk in closet helps keep the guests neat and tidy. Even though it was late november, we were able to use the private outdoor garden, which, in new york city, is a rare treat. You won't find this outdoor space in a big hotel in midtown.

The kitchen was well appointed and refrigerator was stocked with beer! There are grocery stores and drug stores nearby, so dont worry if yoy forgot somethibg at home. The subway is only two short blocks away. You can spend the day seeing the sights and return to a quiet neighborhood at night. Parking, like every neighborhood in new york, can be an issue.

If you're looking for an old style authentic charm for your stay in New York, then look no further. You found it here.

Wonderful week in NYC

  • 5 of 5

Yolanda was such a great host, everything worked very smooth, from the welcome mail with plenty of helpful links to all the provided amenities and the personal tips she gave us over the course of the stay. It's always the little things that make a big difference and Yolanda provided a lot of them which helped making our stay very lovely.

The house is beautiful, ideally located - literally around the corner from the subway station - and all rooms are clean and very well maintained.

Plenty of grocery stores in walking distance as well as all kind of different restaurants. All my recent stays were in one of the hotels in Manhattan and this was a very nice and positive change of spending time in New York. Way more relaxed. I will definitely be back!
