About This Listing
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!

5 heerlijke dagen hebben wij (ik en onze dochter Sabine) doorgebracht in New York. Wij werden hartelijk ontvangen door Lara, Ronald en hun dochtertje Joy. De kamer met eigen badkamer voldeed aan al onze verwachtingen. Een fijn bed, airco, een eigen koelkastje. Super en niet te vergeten het prachtige uitzicht over Downtown Manhattan. De accommodatie ligt op zeer korte afstand van het metrostation, binnen 5 minuten lopen, wat wij erg prettig vonden. De buurt is lekker rustig met dichtbij lekkere restaurantjes, een supermarkt, koffietentjes. Dit alles zeer goed te vinden door de uitgebreide informatie die Lara ons gegeven had. Door de goede (vooraf verkregen) tips hebben wij New York goed kunnen ontdekken, zowel lopend als met de fiets. Wij hebben ontzettend genoten, de dagen zijn voorbij gevlogen en als we weer naar New York gaan, dan verblijven we het liefste bij Lara, Ronald en Joy.
Wir haben uns bei Lara sehr wohl gefühlt. Die ganze Familie (aristokratischer Kater und knuffeliger Hund eingeschlossen) ist sehr liebenswert. Das Zimmer ist schön und der Blick, besonders nachts, atemberaubend. Wir bekamen viele nützliche Hinweise bezüglich Verkehrsmittel, Sehenswürdigkeiten und veganer und vegetarischer Restaurants. Die Lage der Wohnung in einer sehr sicheren und lebhaften Gegend ist ideal, Subwaystation, Cafes, Restaurants, Parks, Bioläden, alles ist in unmittelbarer Umgebung.
Wir würden gerne wieder einmal bei Lara bleiben.
We enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were friendly and hospitable.
We were made to feel welcome. Neighbourhood was good, safe and close to various eating options. Transport within 15-20 minutes walking distance.
About the Host, Lara
I'm a 40 years and live in NYC since 2,1/2 year now.
I love music, art, yoga and meditation.
My profession is yoga teacher and I'm also a mother off a beautiful baby girl.I Am expecting my second baby early summer 2015.
I love it to be a host. To meet unknown fiends from all over the world coming to NY. To share the enthusiasm we have for the city. And to talk about the NY life what has a lot to offer but can also be very hectic and because of that it's great we life close to the parks. Central park and hudson park. And close to the musea. We open our house and heart and in the same time respect the private space of the guests. That's so YOGA!
