We are a family of 3 from Boston and we highly recommend this wonderful Upper East Side townhouse located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. It is a well maintained building with tasteful interior decor. Lots of natural sunlight fills both apartments and they have large, comfortable beds. Use of the first floor common area, daily housekeeping, kitchens and personal laundry service puts this place above the rest. On top of that, is the warm hospitality and professional customer service from Julia which makes booking this location a pleasure.

                                                                                                      Our family of four stayed at the Deluxe Terraced Suite during October 2016 and can’t say enough how much we enjoyed our time in NYC because of this location. We ended up having a hard time leaving the area. The townhouse is located right near Surrey’s. Central Park is just a block away with a park entrance right on 76ths street and Fifth Ave. You walk down the street, and you are in one of the most beautiful areas of the Central Park, surrounded by the great museums and the art galleries of the Upper East side. Julia gave us great tips for places to see, like the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum which was a hit with our early-teen kids. The apartment itself looks exactly like in the pictures, spacious, very classy and most of all extremely clean. There’s not one speck of dust anywhere in the apartment. The linens smell fresh and clean and the bed mattress is very comfortable. The kids slept in the living room sofas which were very comfortable as well. Besides cleaning the apartment (and doing an exceptional job at that), Anna, the housekeeper did the laundry for us. I still can’t get over her smiling face bringing our carefully folded laundry every day. We really appreciated that. We also had family and friends visit us for a few hours at a time in the apartment which turned out to be really enjoyable as we felt like they were visiting us at our home rather than at a hotel. Julia runs the place and she is an exceptional host. She’s direct and she’s approachable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, she will want to talk to you before the arrangements are finalized and at first this was a bit out of the ordinary, but by the time I met Julia, it was like she was an old friend. She will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and welcomed at her place. I highly recommend the Fifth Avenue Apartments and would love to return!
