"My wife and I found Richard and Alice's apartment to be the perfect home base for our week-long stay in NYC. Its central location, just a block from MOMA and a few blocks from Central Park and the Theater District proved ideal for our needs as we could walk to many of our destinations. The tastefully decorated space felt like home with its original artwork, comfortable furniture, well-stocked kitchen and commodious storage all welcoming us like old friends. Speaking of welcome -- their son-in-law greeted us on our arrival and took us through the immaculate space, providing us with basic information on the operation of the various appliances, air conditioning units, etc. and answering our questions. The owners generously included an assortment of complimentary food such as coffee, milk, bread, fresh fruit, and a bottle of wine along with basic spices and condiments for our use. They also provided a mid-week house cleaning service which included fresh sheets and towels and vacuuming and dusting -- a welcome extra which enhanced our stay.
All of the neighbors we encountered in the building, from the building super to those we met in the lobby and elevator were friendly, kind, and welcoming. We had a wonderful seven days in New York, packed with activities and adventures. The fact that we could return to an apartment that felt like home at the end of each activity allowed us to rest and recuperate to be ready for the next adventure. We have stayed in numerous VRBO properties throughout the United States and Europe. We place Richard and Alice's apartment among the best of them and we put Richard and Alice at the top of list of hosts. They provided us with outstanding accommodations and were always available to answer our questions to insure that our stay at their apartment would be amazing... IT WAS!!"
