The only positive to this place is the great location. Easy walk to most midtown attractions and short Uber to others. Close to restaurants, bars, grocery store and pharmacy. Communication with owners was easy. On first entering the property it looked like it's photos. But after closer inspection it was dirty. A lot of DIY patch up jobs. We had a mouse issue that was resolved by the owner using a poly filler to fill the hole it went in. Heating didn't work properly. A cleaner was meant to come during our stay but never showed. There was no vacuum cleaner and when I questioned if they could get one they told me they couldn't but could tell me where I could buy one! Which I did not do! No compensation was given for the issues we had. The building has so much potential to be absolutely beautiful but it's been left to DIY ruins. Definitely not worth the money spent. And wouldn't stay again.

Owner's Response: These guests stayed with us for a week. Unfortunately we had a death in the family and had to travel to Virginia for funeral when they called looking for a vacuum cleaner. We have never had any rodents. When they informed us of a mouse siting, we immediately sent over an employee to seal a small hole where the rodent seemed to have come from. We have subsequently had the unit fully exterminated and cleaned. The guests never complained about cleaning, heat or dirt during their stay. They were accompanied by two infants and seemed to spend most of their stay in the unit. We would have gladly provided cleaning if requested. We have three different heating zones and several space heaters throughout the unit that could have been plugged in walls, which the guests surprising never took out of the closets and used.

Wonderful place to stay in Murray Hill/Kipps Bay

  • 5 of 5

Jason was an extraordinary host -- he went above and beyond on all accounts and the brownstone was wonderful. It comfortably slept our party of 7 and was in a superb location. Highly recommend.

Great location, great response time

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 stay for the weekend. The place was clean and ready on time. The owner was very responsive to messages and made access to the place a breeze. Hot water, cold AC, quiet street, I would definitely stay here again!

Roomy and great place to stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

Great location near everything you need. And the bedrooms and common areas are really spacious. I thought the photos were some kind of trick when I was booking the property. Bedrooms aren't really that big in New York are they? They are in this home. We had a great time. Would definitely recommend it and will be back!

Great for our group of 8!

  • 5 of 5

This brown stone had everything we needed for a long weekend in NYC. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 5 adults and 3 children. The location is prime! Walkable to wonderful restaurants(Vezzo pizza is just around the corner) and subway stops. Jason was quick to answer questions and met us at checkin. Would definitely rent this one again!
