This centrally-located gem on the Upper East Side is perfect for your New York adventure.
First: Please note that we don't consider requests for discounted pricing, or for booking outside of airbnb. Thanks for understanding.
Couples or females preferred. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your trip when booking.
This place is much bigger than any NYC apartment you'll see. Do cartwheels, skid across the floor, do an early morning stretch. All without the fear of knocking over a lamp or losing a limb.
This is a 3rd floor walkup. Not bad for NYC, just FYI in case stairs are an issue for you.
TAKE A SHOWER
One of the two bathrooms is for your use exclusively, and is stocked with clean towels and an assortment of toiletries. Just what you need to wash that sweet city smell out of your pores. The shower is small, but it's all yours!
You'll have access to our fully stocked kitchen. Perfect for sharpening your culinary skills, mixing morning mimosas or haphazardly throwing together a sandwich after a night of touristy hijinks.
For the non-cooking types, we'll also provide a list of restaurant recommendations.
UPDATE YOUR STATUS
We have wifi! Because c’mon, this isn’t 1996.
You'll have a medium-sized PRIVATE room. It faces away from the street (note that because of this, it gets hardly any natural sun). But if it's light you crave, the living room has tons of it!
Room has a queen sized bed, fresh linens, a desk and a flat screen tv with cable access.
Also, we hire a professional housekeeper, so no need to worry about any surprise messiness during your stay.
MEET YOUR HOSTS
This is a 3 bedroom/2 bath apt. Two females working in advertising live here. If you watch Mad Men, we’re exactly like Peggy and Joan. Except, not at all. Keep in mind we are both very busy and rarely home. But just because you don't see us, does not mean we aren't available to answer all your questions. If you need anything, I always reply to emails & texts immediately.
MOVE IT ON UP
The Upper East Side is prestigious and safe. More importantly, famous people have lived here.
Some were real. Some were fake.
Real like Andy Warhol (painted soup cans across the street), Jackie O (jogged at the nearby reservoir) and Barack Obama.
Fakes like the Gossip Girls, The Jeffersons, Carrie Bradshaw and Bernie Maddoff (I said fake, not fictional)
EXPLORE THE AREA
The Met, The Guggenheim and Central Park are all within a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is also a TON of shopping on 86th street.
Subway/Metro: 4,5,6 stop is a 4-minute walk.
We are on Lexington avenue. The further away from Lex you stay, the longer the walk to the subway!
GET HERE ALREADY
When you book, you'll receive additional detailed airport transport options
Taxi from LaGuardia*- 15 to 25 min cab ride/ $25+tip
Taxi from JFK* – 28 min cab /$52.00+tip
Taxi from Newark – Ha! Yeah, don’t take a cab from Newark. Unless you’re rich or Donald Trump, in which case we’ll assume you’re trolling AirBnb for real estate research. Otherwise, take Newark Airport Express Bus to Grand Central.

Thank you Sasha for an amazing stay in New York. Very clean and spacious apartment. Great access to the subway and central park, both just a 5 minute walk away. Excellent local restaurants and bars.
Sasha was always available to help with any queries and provided a good pack with info on local restaurants/bars.
Great first trip to NYC, will definitely be going back.
Fantastic hosts! I had a great stay with Sasha and Julianna. The apartment is stylish, room is super quiet and has very comfortable private bath.
an awesome city needs an awesome place to stay:

Limpio y muy bien localizado con paradas de metro y bus muy cerca. Las anfitrionas, Sasha y Juliana son amables y discretas y se ofrecen a ayudarte en todo lo que necesites. Recomiendo este lugar
Sasha and Juliana are very welcoming hosts, and have a lovely cosy apartment a stone's throw from Central Park. Very clean, and having a private bathroom was great. The Upper East Side is a very charming neighbourhood to stay in. Highly recommended!
What a great place to stay in NYC! Quick walk to the nearby Lexington Ave #6 Subway, where there was always a train within seconds it seemed. Or there are taxis out front all hours. Nice neighborhood restaurants, cafes, or take-out to bring back to Sasha's kitchen for dinner.
A comfortable room and a great host. If I heard "Let me know if you need anything" once, I heard it 50 times! Plus Sasha had her cell number written on the chalkboard in our room, in case we needed her or got lost in Manhattan.
And when we suddenly had to extend our time in the city, she was right there to help us figure things out.
We'll be back.
Our stay at Sasha's apartment was great. Nice accommodations, convenient location and Sasha was very gracious and flexible when we unexpectedly needed to extend our nyc visit. I recommend and would happily stay there again. Carol
We had a wonderful time here. The room and the apartament are spacious and very nice. Sasha is always available for anything you need.
Sasha a été une hôte très accueillante, agréable, attentionnée... Elle a vraiment été aux petits soins pour nous. Nous vous recommandons vraiment son appartement. Il est très spacieux, bien situé. En plus de la chambre il y a une salle de bain privative.
Merci Sasha d'avoir contribué à ce que notre séjour soit vraiment super.
This was such a wonderful place to begin our NYC trip.
Sasha has added little touches to the space to ensure you have what you need and you're comfortable. For NYC standards, the room and bathroom are rather spacious. The apartment is in a great location, close to the subway and walking distance to Central Park and the Museum Mile. We couldn't fault our experience here and would encourage others to book a stay with Sasha as well!
