Located in the mid-70's and Fifth Avenue, The Fifth Avenue Mansion has often been a home-away-from-home to notable members of several Royal Families from a number of European countries. This property is listed by its Owners, a married couple, who live in the premises with their family.

Exceeded our Expectations
Our stay was wonderful! The apartment is located in a elegant and quiet mansion. The apartment is tastefully decorated, spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The location was perfect for our trip as it is within walking distance to Central Park, museums, restaurants and shopping. Our host, Julia, was wonderful. She was friendly and courteous. She provided recommendations and made sure we were comfortable and happy. This rental goes above and beyond most as it provides light housekeeping and concierge type services. Wie will definitely come back.
Like being in Paris and New York at the same time!
Julia was a delightful host and every detail was perfectly attended to. The location, steps from Central Park and surrounded by the calm elegance of the neighborhood, gives a perfect balance from all the hustle and pace of New York. The apartment was spotless and just as charming and spacious as the photos indicated. In the mornings we went around the corner to Sant Ambroeus for fresh croissants and the Parisian ambiance and love it! The subway is steps away as is MOMA. Madison Avenue window shopping, including so many beautiful art galleries, is an added bonus. Despite all these amenities, the area has a completely residential feel and is so quiet that you can get all the sleep you want. I arrived after flying all night and with a many hours of jet lag and slept soundly for hours.
Julia does everything she can to help make your stay perfect. I absolutely recommend staying in one of her apartments and hope I get to again soon.
Extraordinary time in NY due to where we stayed
I stayed in the Grande White Loft in Prominent Mansion House. We found the apartment in excellent condition, and a very warm welcome from Julia and her staff. We could not think about a better location to stay and a better apartment.
Big “Thank You” to Julia and Claudio for also finding a pair of gold earrings that were lost in the apartment and returned them to us promptly after our stay.. Many thanks. When I stay in NY, I have found a home away from home. I just loved it there and Julia and her staff exceeded expectations. Many thanks and see you soon.
Magnificent Home in Great Location
We absolutely loved the Grand White Loft. Our family of five had need for a short stay in NYC and the Grand White Loft exceeded our expectations and needs. Communication and coordination from the owners and staff was flawless and we really could not have asked for more. The apartment itself is spacious and immaculate. We plan to return to this or another of the apartments in this beautiful mansion located just steps from Central Park in one of the nicest neighborhoods in NYC. We highly recommend!
Fantastic Stay in an Unbeatable Location
We had a great stay in NY in Julia's Grand White Loft on 76th East in Manhattan. The apartment is in a terrific location just half a block from Central Park and a great choice of restaurants, cafes and high-end clothes shops nearby. For culture vultures like myself, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, Neue Galerie and Frick Art galleries are all a stone's throw away.!
The apartment itself is clean, warm, has plenty of beds and everything you need. Julia was a wonderful host and went out of her way to make our stay a pleasant one and to accommodate our specific needs, even offering her son's keyboard to practice on for my piano students who had come to NY to perform in Carnegie Hall. She was very quick to respond to emails and texts both before and during our stay in NY and was always very helpful in all communications with her. My traveling companions and I had a brilliant stay at Julia's mansion - I would definitely love to go back there and would recommend it unhesitatingly to other visitors to NY.
Home away from home
Let me start by saying that I do not usually write reviews but the grande white loft deserves one.
We are a family of doctors that used to live and work in NY, so are familiar with Manhattan. This mansion is amazing as are the owners. It is Extremely clean and amazingly quiet in a great safe upper class neighborhood surrounded by diplomats. You are on the same block as The Surrey, The Mark is on the next block and Central Park is only steps away. I decided to stay here since it is 3x bigger than a standard hotel room + you have a kitchenette. Highly recommended.
Our Landmark Townhouse, also our home, is 30 steps off 5th Avenue and the Entrance, not just the wall from Central Park.
Our street is one of the most sought-after areas to stay in Manhattan's elegant Upper East Side.

The Mark Hotel and The Surrey Hotel are the hotels of choice for both European and American artists and celebrities.
