Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my extended stay in NYC. The apartment was clean and had everything I needed and was exactly as pictured. Evan and Maria were great hosts and very easy to contact and made sure I had everything I needed throughout my stay. Could not recommend this property enough! Located on a very safe and quiet street close to every convenience with lots of good reasturants

Owner's Response: Anna was a pleasure to host in our NYC furnished vacation rental for an extended stay this summer. She was friendly, considerate, courteous and extremely clean! I would absolutely 100%, with no reservation at all, recommend Anna as a guest to anyone looking to host her or anyone she is traveling with. Thanks Anna, we look forward to hosting you again in the future. You are always welcome back. AAA+ VRBO-er / HomeAway-er !!!

Chris's 50th trip

Fantastic cosy apartment in a lovely area just slightly tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Great place to unwind after many hours sight seeing and enjoying the night life, Everything we needed. The hosts were very approachable, thoughtful and quick to answer any queries. I would recommend a stay here.

Great Property in an Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my father had the privilege of being able to stay in this property for our first ever stay in New York and we were THOROUGHLY impressed. The studio was a perfect size for the two of us and the bathroom was by far the best I've been in. The kitchen and appliances were very new and the bed was very comfortable (as well as the pull out sofa). We had never used an app like this to find somewhere to stay but our first experience was flawless. Not only was the apartment great but Evan was quite hospitable in helping us get acclimated to New York and was always available to assist us when needed. We definitely hope to stay there again the next time we come and would recommend this to anyone who was in need of somewhere to stay to get the true New York experience (and the price in our opinion was more than reasonable for such a sweet location right around the corner from the United Nations Plaza). It was also a great location as far as access to the subway and the buses in New York (which was very important since my dad has bad feet). All in all we found a winner!

Beautiful Space and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little property for our first time in NYC. It was just as the pictures show, nice and clean with everything you would need. My husband and I were visiting for a week and it was a great location. I was there for a work conference and was happy that I felt safe to walk alone to and from the conference which was only about 10-15 minutes to grand central station. There was plenty of great restaurants and pubs near by. We never got to meet with Evan or Maria but they were quick to respond when we contacted them with any questions which fantastic. We will definatly recommend this property to all our friends visiting NYC and were very happy with our first experience with a VRBO.

Richard's Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

This property is new, clean and in an excellent location. Around the corner from the UN Headquarters, in the center of every service possible; walking distance to absolutely every transportation hub and a cross town bus right outside the building. Food, pubs, drug stores, super markets, cleaners all immediately available. Beautiful street and neighborhood. Clean and safe neighborhood. The owners, Maria and Evan, are always available for assistance and they are right next door. This is my second visit to this apartment and I will return again. A spectacular experience all around.

Beach Park, IL USA

Super nice and wonderfully located!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our short stay in the city. Great location is an understatement! One block from East River Promenade, two blocks over and two blocks up from subway to up or downtown, restaurants, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station all within reasonable walking distance. AND to top it off, so close but so quiet. Some city noise, of course, but really not much. Loved it and loved the availability of the owners. We stayed in touch throughout and the doorman of their building next door was friendly and offered suggestions of 'places worth seeing,' if time allowed, as well. Overall a super, nice time.
