A Zen Oasis 3 blocks from Times Square! Better than any luxury hotel!

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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, this luxurious oasis will sooth your soul after a long day in the bustling city. We're three blocks from Times Square in a neighbourhood that is where all the hot new restaurants are popping up. Our home has a theatre room, a beautiful king sized bed and a second bedroom/sun room with a fold out queen couch. 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. Come and see NYC in luxury that puts the nicest 5 star hotels to shame!

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 Midtown

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!!

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!

Beautiful Place!

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.

Please also remove your shoes when you come in the door. NYC is very dirty, this will keep our home clean.
