Overview

About the property

Perfect location 5 star amenities!

Built by a designer/builder you can't imagine how beautiful this space feels. From the outside, it's deceptively Manhattan an old Tenement Building in Hell's Kitchen. Walk into this two-floor oasis completely controlled by ipad or your smartphone, this luxurious space will soothe your soul after a long day in the bustling city. Hell's Kitchen is widely considered the food capital of New York, with countless trendy, classy, and exciting restaurants of every variety and style.

This gem of an apartment is tucked away on a lovely residential street mere steps from Times Square. The apartment is large, around 1500 sq. ft. It faces the gardens between buildings and has a private garden 700 sq. ft for you to enjoy, giving it a sense of calm and quiet that is rare and precious in this part of the city.

Our home has a theatre room, a beautiful king-sized bed and a second bedroom/sunroom with a fold out queen couch. The theatre room has a queen sized couch as an optional third bed. The garden level is open concept with a giant bathtub in which to soak your weary body. Two amazing showers, a steam room, a powder room upstairs, a gourmet kitchen, a beautiful garden and in the summer a hot tub in the garden.

This part of the city, besides the attractions of Times Square itself is, both a cultural and transportation hub. In addition, you are at the center of New York's bustling Theater District. Got a Broadway show to catch? They are all within a 10 minutes' walk of the apartment!

Columbus Circle is a 12 minute walk and access to central park is 13 minutes from your front door. Just 2 blocks from an Express Subway stop (A,C,E, 1,2,3, line) and Express and Local Bus on the same block. 

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and utensils in case you get bored of eating out including a Nespresso cappuccino maker & Viking gas stove. Our theatre room has a drop-down screen and is sound proof so you can enjoy Hulu, Amazon and Netflix as loud as you’d like.

The house is also equipped with 3 fireplaces and a fire table outside. Enjoy a wood burning fire as you have a delicious meal at the table that seats 8. Relax on the fur rug by the gas fire in the Theatre Room or head outside for a gas fire and a fire tableside chat.

Our home is a perfect place to enjoy New York City with your family. The ideal place to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas & New Years also.

There is Wifi and central air-conditioning. If you decide to enjoy a quiet evening in, the apartment is extraordinarily luxurious with amenities that put the nicest 5-star hotels to shame!

We would love to host you - please send me a message if you have any questions!

**Please note our cat stays to host you, so only cat lovers. He pretty much keeps to himself and goes outside to the bathroom. He will require feeding and watering.

About Julie

James is a builder in Manhattan that also designs amazing spaces. This is our beloved home built to be an oasis in a bustling city.

I'm an entrepreneur that just had a baby and am now helping James with his company.

Julie purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Julie chose Hell's Kitchen

It's a cool part of the city known for it's amazing restaurants. It's got a bit of everything and feels like a real part of NYC because it's still a little gritty. It's just a couple of blocks from Times Square but it's a real neighborhood. So if you want to see how the New Yorkers live, this is a taste of real life with the comfort and luxury of an extremely high end hotel.

What makes this apartment unique

We have sound proofed the garden level, so you will feel held in our tranquil environment. A much needed refuge from a very busy city! We have an amazing custom soaker tub in the middle of the room - you can enjoy a beautiful bath to sooth your weary bones. We have 2 showers with jets from every side! This is 7 star luxury at a very affordable price!

Great location, gracious hosts, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place for the 5 of us to stay in NYC. The hosts were very attentive and provided some welcoming food and drinks, personally told us how to operate things in their home, and had nice recommendations for places to eat nearby. Their home is beautiful - plenty of room for the 5 of us. We took turns using the one toilet, but that wasn't a big deal. The master bedroom walks out on the garden which is lovely - a nice refuge from the streets. I haven't stayed in other VRBO units in NYC, but its hard to imagine that you could find one as nice as this for the price. Highly recommended!!

First Class Accommodations in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We visited NYC for my daughter's 16th birthday and we could not have stayed in a better spot or been cared for by better people. They even helped us celebrate the occasion by arranging a cake for our group.

James and Julie made the check in and check out process as easy as any I have ever experienced. The interior of the space is completely automated, but the app is very user friendly. The space is clean and the lighting/music options allow you to set the environment that you wish. The garden in the rear is lovely and was a nice escape each morning.

The location could not be better. Whether you choose to walk, take the train or take a taxi, every destination in the city is very accessible. The walk to Central Park is only about 15-20 minutes and the taxi ride to the southern tip of Manhattan is only about 15-20 minutes depending upon traffic. I have stayed in hotels all across the city and this is by far the most convenient place I have ever stayed.

Thank you all for sharing the magnificent space with my family on this special occassion.

Gorgeous property midtown, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning home-very luxurious in every aspect. Gourmet kitchen, beautiful art and furniture, out of this world shower and bathtub. Around the corner from a wonderful market and a quick walk to a subway station, Times Square, Theatre District, and 5th Avenue. I am very picky regarding hotels and I would absolutely recommend this property!

We had a great welcome from the hosts Julie and James who provided us with a delicious birthday cake and champagne.

This apartment was better than described on this site. We would love to come back to this place on next trip to NYC.

You must be a cat lover to book our home. You will have to feed out precious boy 2x a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. If this is a problem - please do not book! He is very independent and goes outside to the bathroom.
Please also remove your shoes when you come in the door. NYC is very dirty, this will keep our home clean.
