Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we were looking for in NYC. My husband and I traveled to the city to enjoy the theatre, take in the holiday atmosphere while shopping and stroll through Central Park. The apartment was in walking distance to all our destinations but felt conveniently removed from all the hustle and bustle of the crowds. The apartment's white noise machines were a terrific idea and the bed was so very comfortable. The unit was spacious and clean. John was a pleasure to deal with-good communicator and helpful. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quality apartment and dependable owner.

Our stay here was four nights and it covered everything we needed. It was charming with plenty of room with great kitchen essentials, plus many condiments and extras. The bath had enough shower pressure for me (long thick hair)and John provided some nice extras for the apartment as well. It truly surpasses a hotel stay and offers much more space. There are many things nearby which makes getting around easy. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone. He has a Chinese fortune on his fridge that reads" you will attract cultured and artistic people to your home" so if you stay here that's what you must be...

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you! I really enjoy guests like you and your partner who enjoy getting the most out of NYC's cultural worlds. I also need to thank you for being so kind to make my cactus and succulents look so good. You're a botanical genius.

Perfect Manhattan stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment suited us in every way. It was just as it was described, with all amenities one could need. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable indeed. We enjoyed the ambience created by the artworks, the books, the lighting and comfortable, carefully chosen furniture. The big comfortable bed was most welcome after a couple of long flights from Sydney. The spacious bedroom with excellent storage allowed us to unpack and feel at home for the five days.

We appreciated meeting the owner who provided helpful advice about the building and the area and was contactable should we have any queries during our stay.

This is a great location. We were able to walk to Central Park, the MoMa, Carnegie Hall, the Rockefeller Centre and several of the restaurants of the list provided, as well as the enticing Whole Foods market supplying us with fresh organic food.

We would recommend this apartment to the discerning traveller. Barbara

Wonderful Apartment in Midtown

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Manhattan and this apartment was an important part of our trip. Nicely furnished and spacious for a one bedroom in New York. Very clean and well equipped, and we had a wonderful host. Convenient to theaters, shopping and Central Park. Restaurant recommendations were spot on and as a result we had wonderful meals. We expect to return to this property

East side apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to stay with a stunning view from the living room windows. The apartment location is perfect for getting uptown, midtown and downtown. Everything there is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the owner generously offers use of all the condiments. The street can be noisy at night but there's a white noise machine in the bedroom that does a very good job of masking it. The owner also provides a great list of nearby restaurants, food, pharmacy and liquor stores along with a stack of guides to the city.

Taste of Living in New York

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early on a Sunday morning. The doorman was very friendly and helpful, contacting John, who appeared and welcomed us a few minutes later. The apartment was all we expected and John was very helpful in seeing we were settled and leaving very useful information. We spent 10 great days having a taste of living in New York. After very busy, full on days of walking, rubber necking and being the tourist, it was marvelous and so relaxing to put our feet up in the spacious apartment. The location is excellent, ample eating places nearby and grocery outlets for the evenings when eating in seems a good idea.

The apartment has all the cooking and dining amenities you could want. John was very quick and helpful in answering the couple of queries that came up. At the time of our stay, the Pope, the President and numerous world leaders were in attendance at the UN. New York really was "The Big Apple" and we loved it. Helped by having the perfect apartment and location.
