About The Owner

I host 75-80 families and small groups of friends each year in my Apartments. All my guests have been very happy with the Apartment's large space to spread out and relax, the location, and its convenience. Many guests comment that it was a great experience to live in a genuine NYC neighborhood and feel the atmosphere, without the tourists & commercial distractions of mid-town. I live nearby so I am always available to you during your stay. I'm sure your group will be happy in my Apartment.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property was immaculate. Clean, comfortable in a great location. The kitchen had everything required if you want to cook. The area itself is a great neighbourhood, we felt safe at all times of day and night. The apartment is a short 3 minute walk to the subway into central Manhattan. (15 minute subway ride to Times Square)

I would not hesitate to recommend this place. We had great food in The Grange and would also recommend this restaurant very highly.

First Class Townhouse Residence in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is precisely as advertised and the Owner is always available. The Apartment is spotless and spacious with plenty of room and very comfortable beds and sofabeds for our family. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, it is a joy to return to this Apartment and spread out and relax and prepare for the next day. The neighborhood is safe and convenient to all sites. The Subway is a short walk from the Apartment and in only a few minutes travel you are close to everything. Traveling on the Subway is very safe, fast and convenient. Upon arrival the Owner gave us a thorough orientation to the neighborhood, getting around, and money-saving tips that perhaps saved us hundreds of $$$. We would not hesitate to recommend this Apartment. It is a real find in NYC. We'll be back again.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two adult children just enjoyed a great stay at this location. The apartment was clean and spacious, the beds comfortable and Ray was very accommodating and informative. The 137th subway stop is very close which made travel around the city very convenient. The neighborhood was interesting and offers nice coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Highly recommended!

What a find ! This NYC apartment is perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we booked our stay Ray was extremely helpful and informative. He sent us regular update emails prior to our arrival.

We found this to be the most perfect location to explore this amazing city. We just loved coming home to a warm and welcoming space in the evenings with comfortable beds and fresh fluffy towels. The apartment has a full sized fridge and everything we needed in the kitchen. We opted to make our own tea and toast in the mornings, however there's a great coffee shop right up the street as well as plenty of dining options around the local neighbourhood. Ray sat down with us on our arrival to let us know how to get around this city which is very tourist friendly.

Rays apartment is as spacious as it looks in the photos with excellent heating and all you'll need for a comfortable stay.

We loved the neighborhood and its very easy to use the subway. Ray is never far away should you need him, but we loved finding our way around and used the apartment compendium which was full of tips and helpful information. Ray recommended a favourite restaurant for us for thanksgiving and it didn't disappoint.

We always felt safe and the locals are very friendly. We used the local laundry on the corner down the street, the chinese restaurant on our block (their servings are enormous so don't order too much!), the drug store, the hat shop, Harlem Public bar and eatery (excellent) and especially loved walking through the fresh flower stalls on our way to the subway.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this NYC apartment to family and friends. Thank you Ray, our holiday was one we'll never forget.

Fantastic place for a family trip to New York

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from New York and stayed for 5 nights in this apartment. We are a family of 6, (2 adults, and 4 children aged 16, 15, 13 &11) and this place was perfect for us as a large family. We didn't want to just see the tourist parts of NY, so this place was great as its a more residential area but close to all the places you might want to see. The apartment was clean and well equipped, and the owner gave us some great tips and advice on how to get around and places to visit. Ray, the owner also allowed us to leave our luggage at the apartment on the last day as the flight home wasn't until 11.30pm which was great as we had another full day to explore. The subway is a short walk away, and there is a supermarket around the corner. We also felt very safe staying here and in the whole of New York - we all want to return for another visit!

Memorable Mother/Daughter New York Trip

  • 4 of 5

I've been an avid user of VRBO for several years and Ray's apartment is a perfect example of why we do. Ray was very attentive to all our needs and concerns right from the moment we inquired about the apartment. He made everything about our stay easy. When we arrived he introduced us to the apartment as well as the community and area. He provided us with ALL the information we needed to get around and assured our arrival and departure were effortless. Ray was prepared with info on everything from public transit and cabs to where we could shop/eat in the neighborhood.The apartment was clean and provided us with everything we needed to be self sufficient. My only disappointment (small) was that we didn't get the apartment pictured in the ad and on the top floor but another in the same building. The décor and bathroom were a little tired but certainly served our needs. The beds were awesome and we slept well. Seeing what Ray has done with the pictured apartment I expect he will update the second floor apartment at some point too. Ray made us feel so welcome for our 5 days stay and we talked almost daily like neighbors as he lives right there and is so accommodating for questions and advice. I highly recommend this owner. He is experienced with guest needs and his accommodations are perfect for anyone visiting New York and wanting the full "New York experience". Thank you so much Ray you are an angel!!!
