  • Spacious apartment in a great location

    "My husband and I had stayed in this apartment for a month five years ago and were delighted to find it available again for a three-month stay. Ideal location for museums (Metropolitan, Museum of Natural History (2 blocks away), the Guggenheim, etc. Lincoln Center is a 20-minute walk. The area is noted for its restaurants (e.g., Kefi's, Sarabeth's) and Zabar's famous grocery is a block and a half away. Three bedrooms plus a pull-out sofa means plenty of accommodation for kids and any relatives who want to visit you in New York. A sense of spaciousness with high ceilings and a long hallway that runs the length of the apartment. Big closets and other storage space. Easy recycling and garbage disposal. Does not face the street, so is pretty quiet for a place in such a bustling location. Modern kitchen."

  • A Wonderful, Relaxing Place

    "My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 9 days over the July 4th weekend. Simply a wonderful, relaxing place. We enjoyed our drinks on the balcony and watched fireworks across the Hudson River in New Jersey. We watched the Empire State Building's tower flash with the red, white and blue. The views are spectacular, 33 floors up! The chairs and sofa are comfortable, the bed is great and the linens all pressed and welcoming. We made our breakfasts in the kitchen which was outfitted just right for our needs. You can walk to Columbus Circle for shopping at Whole Foods or go to The Met. We fully recommend this place and will be staying there again on our NYC trips!"

  • Beautiful home, with awesome owner, in a fun, easy, family-friendly location

    "My daughter and I did not want to leave this wonderful home. It was comfortable, spotless, fresh and clean. We had everything we needed while we were there. Two weeks wasn't enough. What you see in the pictures of the apartment is what you will get and that is a great thing. It was super hot some of the days were were there, and the apartment remained cool and quiet. One night it was pelting rain, but I did not notice until I looked out of the window. Ray is wonderful, friendly and quite accommodating. My daughter was at a ballet program for two weeks. Consequently, we had lots of luggage. He allowed us to stow it before our check-in time and also after our check-out time. He was a life-saver. Ray will contact you before your arrival to arrange check-in and he does the same withe check-out. You will be in good hands. Ray knows all of the great, nearby places to eat and buy groceries. He has a great little concierge book in the apartment, as well as fun NYC books, and a map. That was more then we needed. He is very friendly and runs his rentals well. I ran into Ray a few times while I was out and about in the neighborhood. We would chat and it really was like talking with a friendly neighbor. Renting his apartment made our trip a great success! There are many "harder" places to stay in NY. He made it easy, fun, and pleasant. We loved coming "home" after a busy day. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. We felt like true New Yorkers. We were able to catch the subway easily, and also walk around and explore. It was great to be able to go downtown whenever we wanted, but we were also able to escape the noise and touristy areas. For those vegging days, there is a television. Ray also provided ample, clean linens. There were pots, pans and dishware so we could make many of our meals. He takes great care of the apartments. One day as I was returning from dropping off my daughter, he was outside painting the railing. It looked fine to me before, but you can tell he takes great pride in the property and very good care of it. I really appreciated that the apartment was non-smoking. The bathrooms were great. The shower and bath had wonderful water pressure so it was easy washing off the city at the end of the day. Ray provides an iron for clothes and even umbrellas. Everything is tidy and well-organized. We were able to truly settle in and not worry about anything. I would book this apartment again in a New York minute!"

  • Perfect Manhattan Aerie

    "This is a great place for a NYC visit. I am a former New Yorker who knows the city fairly well; my husband and I were visiting my adult children who live and work in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The apartment is roomy enough that my NYC-dwelling offspring were jealous (!), it is clean, comfortable and quiet, and high enough to have fabulous views of the city and the river. Restaurants, wine bars, groceries, subways, and venues like Lincoln Center are all within walking distance. We could walk to the river or to Central Park, and it was a straight subway shot to Brooklyn as well. In addition, a well-stocked kitchen gave me the option for a few meals "at home," including a dinner with kids and partners. Jeannie and Ray met me at the door and made me feel welcome instantly; they were very responsive to texts when I had questions. This was my first foray into VRBO rentals in NYC and I was not only not disappointed but I was thoroughly pleased. Soooo much better than being in a hotel! I would stay here again in a NY nanosecond"
