About the property

4 Bedroom 2 Bathroom with Private Yard in the Heart of It All

Oversized LEGAL Vacation Accommodations for Families and Small Groups Seeking an Unforgettable Experience When Visiting New York City. 4 Large Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 2000 SQF /186 SQM. I own two almost identical apartments.

Midtownflatsnyc is a centrally located townhouse comprising two separate oversized 4 bedroom apartments each with large living rooms, dining rooms and fully equipped kitchens. Because there are only two units located within the building this vacation rental is considered a legal rental. Make yourself aware of the rental laws in NYC. Beware as most apartment rentals in NYC are ILLEGAL since they are located within a larger building containing 3 apartment units or more. I recommend that you research this yourself on the internet.

The properties cater to families and groups of friends looking for a midtown Manhattan location with all the comforts and amenities of home living.

Unlike most New York apartments each apartment is set up with generous common areas allowing your downtime to be a great social experience with friends and family.

Each apartment features four generously sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each of the four bedrooms has comfy queen sized bed with brand new linens including down comforters with 100% high thread count cotton duvet covers and over flowing with pillows.

About Lisa Grossman (owner)

Born and raised in New York City, Lisa has spent the better part of the last twenty five years in the travel industry, managing the travel needs of demanding New York City corporations and luxury vacationers. During her years in New York City, Lisa has purchased and renovated numerous apartments, becoming intimately familiar with New York City real estate market. In 2008, Lisa began renting her investment condos as short term vacation rental properties, finding a natural merge of her two life interests, travel and real estate, while satisfying the needs of families and groups seeking quality vacation apartment accommodations when visiting New York City. In 2011, when New York State passed a new law making short term rentals illegal in Class A buildings, Lisa was forced to immediately cease from renting her apartments short term. Over the course of the following two years Lisa searched New York City seeking the perfect “legal” two family townhouse and in 2013 located, purchased and gut renovated what is now know as “Midtown Flats”. In the years to follow, Lisa then went onto purchase three additional homes in the Hamptons, a beach resort destination located approximately two hours from New York City. These homes are also available for weekly rentals.

Being a Specialist in Corporate and Leisure travel with Protravel International, Lisa has had the opportunity to experience the best luxury hotels around the world. This experience coupled with Lisa’s knowledge of her client’s needs, gives her the background to understand what travelers are seeking when looking for a vacation rental apartment in her hometown, New York City.

Lisa Grossman (owner) purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Lisa Grossman (owner) chose Manhattan

In 2011 when New York City enacted a law making short term vacation rentals illegal in buildings containing 3 apartments or more and Lisa was forced to remove her condominium units from the vacation rental market. In 2012, Lisa purchased a charming townhouse which contains two individual 4 bedroom units therefore making them available for short term vacation renters.

What makes this apartment unique

Unlike almost every other vacation rental apartment listing you see, this is a Legal Vacation Rental.

we were a group of 6 women, were confortable here and had a great time in new york. the block where the flat is has several dinner options, restaurants going from italian to sushi. after long days of walking up and down the city, coming home to walk 20 meters for a good dinner is priceless. the flat is exactly as pictures show it, no surprises. comfortable, spacious, clean, well equiped, all you can ask for a perfect holiday in new york!!

Fabulous location, airy, roomy and exceptionally convenient for a family or families.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious, clean, and in a fabulous central location to everything you want to see in the midtown area. We spent the week of Christmas in NYC and couldn't have picked a more comfortable place to stay for our time. After exploring all day knowing we would come home to our fabulous apartment was a real treat. It made our time in NYC so enjoyable. The apartment has all the amenities you need for a stay, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen and a lovely patio, which we didn't use due to the fact it was winter time. The owner was exceptionally responsive and accommodating when we had one issue come up with with radiator heating up the apartment too high, she immediately made the modifications needed to accommodate the heat within the apartment. I'd recommend staying at this property you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Place for Our Stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

My buddies and I come to New York every March. We came across this rental three years ago and have looked to rent it each year since. Clean, well-maintained, great layout, big bedrooms, and convenient for all of our favorite bars and restaurants in NY as well as Times Square and Madison Square Garden. Lisa made the check in and check out process totally effortless and was always quick to get back to us with any questions we had. We are already looking forward to staying there again in 2017!

Spacious clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

Family of 2 adults and 3 kids aged 13, 11 and 9 plus an adult friend. We all had heaps of space to ourselves and a massive outdoor area which is unheard of in New York. The property was exactly as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Only complaint we had was that the heating was set way to high as we found it difficult to sleep at night.

Other than that we would recommend this to anyone looking at staying in NYC. A few blocks walk to Times Square, local shops and restaurants all around which was very handy indeed.

home from home in the centre of New York

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for a group of people or in our case a family. We have 3 teenage kids who thought they had gone to heaven when we arrived. They had their own spacious and charming bedroom with beautiful fireplaces and large comfortable beds. All the bedrooms were clean and well appointed. The large kitchen/living area was a great refuge after trooping around the sites. The sofa accommodated us all! The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we even found an iPhone adapter which was a life-saver, as we only brought one and had about seven devices between us all. The apartment could not be better located. We were able to walk to many of our destinations and there is a subway very near by. There is a wide range of restaurant to choose from within walking distance and if you run out of anything at all, you can find a shop that sells it within a couple of minutes walk. The apartment is very near Times Square, which our teenagers loved walking down. It is everything you imagine New York will be; noisy, bright, buzzy, fully of busy people and yellow taxis. Lisa was very easy to get in touch with and got back to me almost immediately. She is very accommodating and the information provided by her is comprehensive and accurate. We visited many sites, though there is so much to do, many were left for another day. We loved the top of the Rock, strolling through an extremely cold Central Park, the bus trip downtown, wandering the streets of Soho, visiting the 9/11 memorial, the Met, the Frick and the Empire State. We also went to see Matilda, which we would highly recommend. It is within walking distance of the apartment. We had many a fantastic breakfast, which set us up for the day. It was also unbelievably cold when we arrived at -14 and we were worried the apartment would be cold. It wasn't. It was a perfect cosy refuge from the cold. I couldn't recommend the apartment more. It is beautiful, well managed and maintained and in an incomparable location. Thank you Lisa. I hope we return one day.
