Guestbook comments from the owner

A perfect family vacay. Ray was an ideal host with money saving and getting around tips. The Apartment is large and spotlessly clean with very comfortable bed and sleeper sofas. Being able to prepare our breakfast in the morning was a real plus saving time and money as well as not having to get dressed for breakfast. The neighborhood is wonderful with all the restaurants, groceries, pharmacies available just a few steps away. The neighborhood Subway is a central line and only a two block walk along Broadway and quickly delivered us to all the attractions we wanted to visit. Very convenient and very inexpensive. We were really surprised at how easy and inexpensive it is to get around in NYC. Overall, this apartment was a great find. We will definetly be back for another stay at this fine accommodation. Thank you, Ray!

The apartment was very comfortable for our one week stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was close to the 137th Metro line 1 where we felt safe walking to catch the subway to downtown Manhattan. Ray, the owner, was very informative in showing us all of Manhattan highlights on the map on our first day. It was very helpful to understand the whereabouts of each neighborhood borough when taking the subway. Thank you, Ray!

This HomeAway is perfection

  • 5 of 5

As a HomeAway experience this property is the definition of perfection ! Ray is outstanding with his communication before arrival, the apartment is spotlessly clean, very comfortable, best of all quiet in the city. Ray and his wife are both friendly and most helpful with telling us how to get around the city, which made our stay even better. It is only 3 blocks from the subway which made it so easy for us to get around the city. He even arranged a cab for us to get to the airport at the end of our stay. Thank you Ray for making our stay the best I have had in NYC. Looking forward to seeing you in the future.

Our First New York Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to stay at Ray's apartment for our first visit to New York. We are from Georgia, and wanted to experience all that New York had to offer. When we got there, Ray met us at the door and showed us around the place. It was very nice and clean, and it looked just like the photographs. After showing us around, Ray sat down with us and showed us how to get around in NY. That was extremely helpful to us because we really had no clue. We both felt very safe in the apartment, and the subway was just a block away. We rode that same subway into Time Square, Ground Zero, and to see the Statue of Liberty. It was extremely convienent. Ray was very nice and even kept our bags for us after check out since we had a later flight and wanted to spend more time in the city. I highly recommend Ray's place. The price is so affordable and it is just all in all a great place. Thank you so much Ray for making our first trip to New York a wonderful experience!!

What a New York City Find!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations in a great neighborhood and on the main subway line to everywhere within minutes. Our host was like a personal concierge, always available, always accommodating, never intrusive. He had great money saving and getting around tips. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and beds are high quality and very comfortable. Always unsure about what you will find in NYC but this apartment is a real gem, the best we have found. We'll be back!

Great Location

The apartment was wonderful. We had 6 people staying for 2 weeks. The pullout couches were amazing. Not your typical mattress but a foam mattress which I got a great night sleep. Location Location Location this place has easy access to everywhere. I highly recommend staying here.

A great NYC home away from home !!

  • 4 of 5

Ray was a great host and the facility was well kept, spacious and convenient to the subway. Ray took the time to meet with and orient us even after a delayed flight meant a late night arrival. We enjoyed the location as it was nice to get a little away from downtown while still experiencing life in NYC. The heat of July meant the place was a little warm but the AC was working hard and that is how I remember the summers in the northeast. We would recommend staying with Ray!!
