The Space

LIVE LARGE

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.

Guest Access

TAKE A SHOWER

You'll share one of the bathrooms with the host. It is stocked with clean towels and an assortment of toiletries. Just what you need to wash that sweet city smell out of your pores.

EAT UP

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 an extensive list of restaurant recommendations.

UPDATE YOUR STATUS

We have wifi! Because c’mon, this isn’t 1996.

GET COMFY

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.

Also, we hire a professional housekeeper, so no need to worry about any surprise messiness during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

This is a 3 bedroom/2 bath apt. If you need anything, I always reply to emails & texts immediately.

*Please note that I rent out the 3rd room, so there may or may not be other guests during your stay, but you would NOT be sharing a bathroom with them, you'd share the bathroom with the host.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

TRANSPORT EASILY
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!

Other Things to Note

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.

  • The apartment was really nice and spacious: perfect for our 7-days (shopping) trip in New York. It was easy to move around by subway and the surrounding areas were also interesting to explore. I'd stay here again.

  • We spent one week in Sasha's place which was very clean and we could use what we wanted. It is a nice, calm and well situated apartment apartment. Although we weren't the only guests there, we had a great privacy and we enjoyed our stay. Sasha is very helpful and she suggested a lot. We would definitely recommend to book Sasha's place!

  • Absolutely great location and apartment. I would certainly choose to stay there again.

    May 2014
  • Great host! I would definitely come back! Very fast in answering our questions and very good explanations about check in. The apartment is very clean and big, only a few minutes walking distance from the underground, 10 minutes (max) from Central Park and 15 min away from the Met.

  • Sasha is a really great host, she is welcoming, gentle, and thoughtful.
    The appartment was like we expected, and the location is near from the subway, just few blocks.

    Thank you for everything.

  • We spent our Easter holiday in NYC and Sasha's place was exactly what we needed. Great location close to museums and Central Park. Felt like New Yorkers when we went for a morning run round park's famous reservoir loop:-)
    Sasha responded very quickly to any questions, right from the beginning. Her apartment is veeery large and room is spacious (and quiet) with comfy bed. There is plenty of room for all your stuff. Apartment is exactly as described.
    Even though it's shared accommodation, we never felt uncomfortable or inconvenienced in using any amenities.
    I would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC.

    Thank you Sasha!

  • My girlfriend and I spent three nights in NYC and were very happy that we stayed at Sasha's apartment. Communication was very easy, and she answered all my questions very promptly - often almost instantly. We didn't arrive until late (even later than we had expected), and we were very appreciative of Sasha's willingness to meet us at a late hour and give us keys and a tour of the place. The apartment was immaculate and everything was exactly as advertised. We had a great stay and I would recommend Sasha's apartment to anyone visiting NYC.

  • I stayed in the apartment for the whole month of February while looking for a permanent place to live, because I just moved to New York. The apartment is in an excellent location, extremely central, all the shops are nearby, the Upper East side is a very nice and safe neighborhood and the closest subway station is only 5 minutes away.

    Sasha was an excellent host from the beginning til the end, with useful tips and advice for everything I needed. If they didn't have the AirBnB bookings lined up until the summer I would have loved to move in permanently!
    The apartment is very large, clean and looks exactly like the pictures. It has a very big kitchen, highly unusual for NY standards, and overall I had a great experience staying here and would highly recommend it to everyone else.

    Sasha, thank you very much for making my stay a memorable one!

  • We really enjoy staying at Sasha apartment. The location is really good, the kitchen had everything we needed, the living room is awesome and the bedroom is really quiet. Sasha wasn't there when we checked in, but she was communicative and explained everything to us before we arrived and she also arranged some friends to take care of us when we first arrived.

    We had a snow storm the last day and she was very flexible with the check out and keep us posted about the storm.

    Thanks!
