About the property

Charming 1880s 2,700 sq foot townhome on Upper East Side of Manhattan with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths available for your family or group vacation. Backyard, roof deck, gourmet kitchen, tin cielings, wide plank wood floors, sleeping up to 10 PEOPLE within 2.5 blocks of Central Park and a mile of Metropolitan Musuem and most major museums. Close to many great restaurants and 20 mins to Lincoln Center! Come enjoy NY at its best without the downside of limited space!

This is our well cared for family home. We are working out of California for a while and are looking for a family or group of good friends to enjoy the Big Apple and our space as we do (No parties or large, loud groups allowed.) You will need to hand it back broom clean.

This is also our neighborhood of many years. Our family lives next door and we know all of the neighbors, all of whom are friendly. You will be left alone to enjoy New York but with many people around to provide tips or advice if needed.

The house is entirely at your disposal except for a secondary kitchen and some basement areas.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This brownstone was ideal for our trip with our young grand daughters. The five cousins took over the whole third floor, which became their "castle" for the several days we were visiting NYC. They were enchanted. The subway was within a few minutes walking distance, only don't make the mistake we did on getting off at one stop that meant we had to walk uphill (dragging our luggage) to the house rather than slightly downhill, which would have been the case if we had gotten off one station sooner. Our host was graciously accommodating and attentive. We had occasion to call upon him for some advice at one time, and he got right back with us. Lots of good ethnic restaurants in the area and we would call in our orders and had just steps to go to pick up our food which we enjoyed sitting around the dining room table. There is no television in the living room but that worked just fine with us because our grand daughters read instead and we had interesting conversations with them.

It was clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home! The house was clean and comfortable. Ben, the owners brother was very helpful and kind. We felt safe and all the neighbors we passed on the street the house is located were courteous and friendly.

If you like cooking it has a great stove and if you plan to eat out there are plenty of restaurants.

There were a few things though: the coffee maker does not work, and there was a strong smell of insect spray in the dining area. It would have been great to have a TV in the living area so we could see tv as a family.

NYC Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 stayed at this home for 4 nights and absolutely loved the everything about this home. The house was spacious enough that we never felt like we were crammed together. The bedrooms were all large and offered plenty of storage space for our luggage. Ben and Elisabeth were great to work with. Ben met us at the home to give us the keys and answer any questions we had. There were plenty of linens and there were even travel size shampoos and body washes in every bathroom. The neighborhood was very quiet and we felt safe wandering about checking out the neighborhood restaurants. Lexington Pizzeria was a group favorite as was Joy Burger. The home is conveniently located between two stations on the 6 line. Be warned- if you're coming off the 103rd street stop with luggage that there is a pretty significant hill that must be conquered right away. If you have lots of luggage I'd recommend using the 96th street station and avoid dragging all that luggage up a hill. Again, I can't stress enough how helpful Ben and Elisabeth were and how much we look forward to the opportunity to stay at this home again.

Huge space! Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 5 adults and 4 kids age 8 to 13. There was a ton of space for everyone, and the accommodations were excellent. We had a few questions/ needed a few things during our stay and Ben responded immediately and was super helpful! The red curry at the Thai place in the corner was the best I've ever had, and we went to the Italian place for drinks and dessert one night and it was also amazing!

We will book here again, and highly recommend it!
