We recently moved to this beautiful sun drenched apartment.
The apartment is large and located in a beautiful historical building where the old New York City grandeur is still visible
Your bedroom is very spacious and has large south and west facing windows. Great views! The Chrysler building, the Empire State Building and the new Freedom Tower are all visible from your room. In the room there is a small table with 2 chairs where you can sit and enjoy the views.
The queen size bed and mattress are new and very comfortable. The mattress is made of natural materials like bamboo, wool and cotton. In your room and also in the rest of the apartment you will find the most amazing modern paintings.
Next to your room is your own private newly renovated bathroom.
The apartment is so big that it will really make you feel like having your own space. If you want to bring your kid(s), we might be able to put an extra bed (luxury air bed) in our office-room.
Of course you're most welcome to use our large sunny kitchen. There is a breakfast table where you can have your morning coffee or tea, while enjoying more great views!
I'm a certified Iyengar yoga teacher, so if you want we can start the day with a private energizing yoga lesson in our yoga-room.
Or finish the day with a beautiful meditation.
The apartment is located in the Upper West Side, probably the most beautiful neighborhood of New York. We are just one block away from the Riverside Park and the Hudson River and just three blocks from Central Park. We're on walking distance from The American Museum of National History and at the METROPOLITAN and Guggenheim. The Upper West Side is a quiet tree-lined neighborhood but has a lot of great restaurants, bars and shops. We're just 2 blocks away from the well known Silver Moon Bakery where they have the best chocolate-almond croissants you can imagine. The famous jazz club Smoke is almost around the corner.
The main subway lines (1 2, 3 trains) are just a few blocks away. They bring you to Time Square in 15 minutes, Greenwich Village in 20 minutes and Brooklyn in 30 minutes.
We're a quiet little family with a small baby, a playful dachshund and a beautiful sweet siamese cat. The animals of course do not come into your room.
We like traveling, yoga, art and music. We love the city we live in and are most happy to share all our inside tips with you.
We speak English, German, Dutch, and also a little bit Spanish, Portuguese and French .
We're looking forward to welcome you as our guests!
The room is very big and comfortable. The house is well situated just a couple of blocks away from the subway, and you can get to the city centre really quickly.
Lara and Ronald are very nice and make your stay easy.
We enjoyed our vacation in NY quite a lot. Lara and Ronald were wonderful hosts. Our room was big and calm and the view out of the window was generous.
Lara gave us very good advises about shopping and restaurants.
If it is possible, we will come back soon and stay at Lara and Ronald again.
We can recommend Lara and Ronald with a clear conscience!
We really enjoyed our stay at Lara & Ronald's home & loved meeting baby Joy, who was! and the cat and dog, who kept us company in our room over a cup of tea one afternoon. The room, hospitality and location were well above our expectations, we loved the view from the 11th floor, everything was spotlessly clean and good quality. The area UWS is quiet, up market but with lots going on. Restaurant recommendations were excellent - from the bakery for breakfast croissants, to the little pizza place, the all American diner and the organic restaurant. A great base from which to explore New York - we would definitely recommend to our friends. Thanks you for your friendly hospitality.
A first great Airbnb experience ! It was perfect !
Lara and her family are so friendly, and cute (the baby). So are the charming dog and the white cat !
The impeccable bedroom and bathroom and all the apartment are peaceful and zen. The bed is super comfortable and the sight on Manhattan magnificent. The district is very restful and practical in any points of view (access transport, shops, restaurants, jazz music, etc.)
We loved the yoga sessions given by professional teacher Lara (a real present to overcome the fatigue due to the long walks in town).
In brief, an address of choice and refined which we had difficulty in leaving and which I recommend without limitation.
Thank you so much Lara and we hope to come again.

Dear Lara & Ronald, Thank you so much for your hospitality during our NY trip! We really enjoyed our 7 nights stay at your lovely apartment with its stunning view. Especially the good location of your apartment, near Central Park and with the next subway station just 2 blocks away. We really recommend your apartment to all NY visitors. We wish you and your familiy all the best! Thank you and nice greetings from Austria, Sabine & Thomas.
I stayed for 4 nights at the apartment of Lara at the upper west-side, and it was a great time. It's a wonderful room you get there with a stunning view, I even could see my favorite building of NY, the Chrysler :-) The bed is a dream and I almost couldn't get out of there, I slept very much :-) The wonderful apartment they live in is very good located, to Metro, Bus-Station, Central Park and Hudson River Park!
Lara and Ronald and their lovely baby Joy are very sweet family and I had some really interesting talks with them. We didn't had that much time together but they helped me when I needed something or had questions. They are great hosts and I would definitely go back there!
Dear Lara, dear Ronald,
Thank you for your unprecedented hospitality. I stayed with my mum at yours for a week and we enjoyed it a lot. New York can be a rough but you made it something warm and cozy for us. In addition to the impressions from the city, we took home your way of living. We loved you and Joy as well as the two four-legged friends. Joy (ten month by the time we have been here) never cried and seemed to be the happiest baby on earth. She welcomed us waving and with a smile. The cat and dog said hello to us every time we came in.
The flat is very bright and spacious. Everything is very clean and well equipped (better than at home in some ways). The bed is really comfortable. The location is safe and really good – in my eyes there are hardly any better locations in New York to life.
I can strongly recommend Lara and Ronald as hosts!
Our first esperience with airbnb couldn't be a better one! Lara and Ronald room is bright spacious and very clean as well as the rest of the house. Subway is few blocks away and a nice supermarket is even closer! They were just fantastic, we felt like at home and it was a pleasure to meet and talk to them!!
Their baby girl is just beautiful and their pets very cute and funny!
We had the best time we could hope for and we will surely recommend to any other!!
Location: easy to reach! Taking the tube you are in 12 minutes at Times Square.
If you have enough time, take the bus. It's great fun. You can enjoy the views of the city instead of being underground. Nice appartement with spacious room and a great view. Plus a fine bathroom. Enough restaurants and places for breakfast close by. Friendly hosts. They give advice when you want and leave you alone when you don't.
Hello NY City Fans, ich habe 5 Nächte bei Lara u Roland übernachten dürfen und bin so froh mich für dieses Appartement entschieden zu haben. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und man hat in seinem Zimmer viel Privatsphäre. Das Zimmer ist hell, warm und gemütlich! Außerdem für New Yorker Verhältnisse sehr groß! Lara und ihre Familie sind toll. Freundlich, locker und für ein Gespräch nach einem langen Tag in der großen Stadt immer zu haben. Die Upper West Side ist außerdem ein sicheres Viertel zum Wohlfühlen. Von dort erreicht man alles wunderbar! Vor allem für allein Reisende. Man schläft während man über die Skyline New Yorks blickt. Einzigartig und wirklich preiswert für junge Leute, die trotz des großen Big Apple Abenteuers eine sichere Bleibe suchen. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen!
And now a short version in englisch ;) - Staying at Laras Appartement was amazing. The room is cozy, huge and full of light! You sleep while seeing the NY Skyline! Lara and her family are hearty and always there for a chat or if You have a question or two ;-) i absolutly recommend this place. As a Young Woman traveling on my own I felt safe in this flat but also in UWS!
