Prime area of Central Park just steps away! World famous gourmet food markets and high end shopping around the corner. Best cinema in city two blocks away (often hosts red carpet premieres). Horses and carriages, pedicabs, finest reviewed restaurants--all within walking distance!
Charming studio in a lovely little townhouse. It is four flights up, sunny, North facing apartment--it is quiet--you forget you are in the city! Yet, it is in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, five blocks to Lincoln Center, 11 blocks to The American Museum of Natural History. It is within easy walking distance to Central Park, Riverside Park, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle and so much more. Major subway hub two blocks away! You'll be at Macys in ten minutes on the train! The block is residential, safe, and very quiet at night.
The generous sized apartment faces north, but has pretty good light because it is on the top floor of the building. This apartment is old, vintage we like to say, dating from1937, but well-maintained, clean and comfortable. There is new paint throughout and freshened floors. The kitchenette has just been renovated with a new cabinet unit (plates, cups and utensils, all new). It is a 4th story walk-up with no doorman. It is rear facing, thus extremely quiet--despite being in such a vibrant area! (see reviews).
It has a fully working kitchenette (oven, stove, sink) and full sized refrigerator/microwave. It is furnished with a queen bed, vintage dining table and two comfortable upholstered chairs. The bathroom is NOT renovated, but is VERY clean. There is a TV, DVD player, and WIFI included in the price. There is an alarm clock so you don't oversleep and miss how gorgeous the neighborhood is in the morning! We provide coffee and coffee maker (though Starbucks around the corner, too! ) We also provide shampoo and conditioner (helpful for airline travelers)--though 24 hour, new, drugstore (CVS) directly across the street should you prefer to buy your favorite toiletries upon arrival. Please note: The favorite Trader Joe's Market is only two short blocks away!
We will greet you personally and live on site. Though you will have privacy during your stay.
Of course we have the apartment professionally cleaned between guests!
We would LOVE to host you!

The immediate neighborhood is chock full of great restaurants, theaters, parks (including Central Park) and museums. The apartment is 2 blocks from the West 72nd St. subway station on the 1/2/3 lines. If you are familiar with NYC transit, you know this is a tremendous luxury.
Please note we charge a $75 fee for check-in after 11:00PM.
Very conveniently located flat in a historical brownstone building. Experience vintage NYC! Despite being old, the flat is clean and includes a lot of amenities for a prolonged stay, all in working order.
This a good size studio for NY standards, and I do not recall waking up to birds singing anywhere else in Manhattan, this is a true luxury!
Very efficient and flexible check-in/out process.
We had a good stay and would recommend the flat to anyone exploring the UWS.
Very pleasant stay. Very friendly host. Responds quickly. Helpful in all requests. Great location (close to Subway, shops, etc.). Quiet. Old building, but apartment in good shape. Will stay there again, when I get a chance. Good to know: 3 flights of stairs, no elevator.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Beautiful UWS studio. The neighbourhood was so quiet you can actually sleep without the city noise! The bed was very comfortable, with clean sheets and linens (and clean towels). It was so cozy, we both thought it would be the ideal apartment to live in NYC! Charming space with everything you need, more than you would expect from a hotel.
Karen explained exactly where to go, and what to do to get into the building on our first night. So everything was very organized and we felt comfortable and safe staying in this studio. We would highly recommend this place to anyone that’s looking for a quiet and safe accommodation in a prime NYC location.
Unfortunately our trip was cut one night short, but we were so impressed by how quickly Karen responded to our messages after we left to inform her we had to leave early. The communication was excellent.
Ted and Karen were extremely accommodating with our arrival time, and also provided a space in the building for our luggage AFTER check out. We just felt like everything was covered, and we could enjoy our trip without worrying about the small stuff.
We would 100% stay here again- I don't think there would be any point to look anywhere else!
Thank you Karen & Ted.

We stayed at this apartment for 8 nights over Christmas and it was exactly what we were after. Clean, quiet, and there is more space than it seems in the photos! Great wardrobe storage, kitchenette and bathroom were perfect for the longer stay we had.
We were contacted before arrival and given clear instructions on how to accept the property and it was all very straightforward.
Location wise, the apartment is in a gorgeous little neighbourhood, very quiet and close to the subway, so you can get around really easily. Even if we took a cab, we would get dropped off a few blocks away so we could enjoy the walk home!
Overall, fantastic experience, great hosts, cute apartment, we would definitely stay here again!
A cozy, darling studio in the Upper West Side? What more could we ask for? We enjoyed a five night stay and look forward to coming back. Kari Jo greeted us when we arrived and explained everything about the apartment. The apartment was very tidy. We had everything we needed for our stay.....including chocolate. Thank you for being wonderful hosts!
Our 16 day stay at the studio was very nice! The location is great, close to the very convenient crossing of 72st and bdwy, where you can reach the subway, cafes, supermarkets and drugstores. And the neighbourhood is lovely.
The check in process was great, we were offered an early check in and Kari Jo was waiting for me when I arrived early in the morning, she was very welcoming. The whole process of communicating with the manager, Karen, through the airbnb app messages, also worked very well.
The studio is cosy, yet spacious, with enough closet space, working kitchen appliances and very clean. Amenities like toiletry and complimentary chocolates were a nice plus. The bathroom is small but functional. The stairs are a little steep, specially if you have plenty of luggage. There's no safe in the studio, but no one comes in the studio during the stay.
We would definitely return to this studio or to other apartments in this lovely upper west side townhouse!
A wonderfully located, quiet space. It's a bit of a climb, but the apartment's charm and neatness makes up for it. If you are looking for a well located, true New York apartment, this is it!
This place is fantastic. Quiet, clean, spacious, and an awesome location on Upper West Side. Karen and Ted were amazing hosts, even arranging for one of the neighbors in the building to help us get in upon our arrival. I was in NYC for the marathon and they even made a "congrats" sign for us and posted it on the stairwell for when we came back from the run. We stayed 6 days and will definitely be back on our next trip to NYC.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely studio. Conveniently located in a great neighborhood, close to the subway, shops, and good restaurants. The apartment was clean and tidy, the bed comfy, the amenities most welcome, and I especially appreciated the recommendations for food shopping and dining options. Everyone I dealt with was helpful and charming! Hope to return. :-)
