The location is superb, 1 minute walk from the subway, 10 minute train ride to the bottom of Central Park. Michael and Tracy are great hosts with lots of local knowledge. One tip, you will need to leave the apt by 8 to beat the queues for the major attractions. We ate locally at 'The Edge' and 'The Grange' which are both lovely. A great coffee shop is 'Manhattanville coffee' on W142, 5 mins walk away. Another great one is 'Filtered Coffee shop' at 1616 Amsterdam Avenue. We stayed over New Year and avoided the 'Times Sq' area due to the large numbers. There are lots of nice cafes and bars in the Chelsea, Greenwich and Soho districts which is only 25 mins away on the subway. Don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed.

Conveniently close to Central Park and with a subway station 5 minutes walk away. Stayed here for 4 nights with my partner and my two daughters. Thoroughly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit New York but likes to get away from the hustle of the city after a days sightseeing. Lovely places to eat nearby. (Sylvia's is a must visit restaurant if you like fried chicken!!) Cannot fault any aspect of this place. A big thanks to Julie for making us feel so welcome.
