I have stayed in New York over 100 times and this was my favorite stay. The home is beautiful, the neighborhood is quiet--you forget you are in the middle of the city, yet everything is so convenient to get to. We ended up hanging out in the house a lot and ordering in for dinner because the atmosphere was so relaxing.This is a great house for families or friends. The owner is super responsive, warm, and professional. The house was very clean, it had everything we could possibly need, the outdoor areas were really fun since that is so rare in the city--unique and above and beyond on many levels. Highly recommend.
