Great studio apt near Central Park

Apartment - Entire home/apt · W 86th St, New York, NY 10024, United States

The Space

Stay in peace and comfort in this modern, spacious studio apartment, situated just one block from central park, 4 blocks from the Natural History Museum, just across central Park to Museum Mile, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim etc. and many many more, 1-2 blocks from several major subway and bus lines, and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and every convenience imaginable.

The apartment, located on the second floor of a walk-up building, has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower and a sleeping loft with queen size bed. A double futon pulls out to create two distinct sleeping areas, and the grand piano makes this a perfect home-away-from-home for musicians and music lovers alike. Wifi and air conditioning ensure a comfortable stay.

I'm a classical concert pianist, rock guitarist, songwriter, and entrepreneur and frequently tour around the world leaving my apartment available. Love getting to know people from around the world and around the country so feel free to ask me any questions you might have about New York City. Feel free to check out my website if you'd like to learn more about me: (website hidden)

Generally I book about 4 to 6 weeks in advance because that's how my tour schedule works. Hoping to soon be able to book farther in advance!
Thanks...looking forward to hearing from you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • L'appartement est très sympa (spacieux et bien équipé) et très bien situé. Kimball nous avait laissé les clés à disposition dans une boutique à côté. Bien que nous ne l'ayons pas rencontré il a toujours répondu très rapidement à nos mails.
    Le lit en mezzanine est adapté aux plus jeunes, l'accès est peut être un peu plus compliqué pour les autres...
    Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

  • My daughter and I had a great stay! I am a middle aged mom with a bit of a bad hip. The two flights of stairs to the apartment weren't too bad and the futon was very comfortable. My daughter slept up in the loft and was very comfortable. There are groceries etc nearby and the key pick up was easy. We really enjoyed our New York trip. The apartment is also close to "both" of the subway lines which means getting down to the 9 11 memorial via subway was easy. Cabs to a play were about $12. We were lucky to get good weather and take walks in nearby Central Park. We so enjoyed our stay.

  • We had a great stay in NYC in Kimball's apartment. The location for us was perfect because we were in town to go to the opera and concerts. Taxi to Lincoln Center cost about $7.50 and it is an enjoyable 20-block walk back after opera when the sidewalks weren't busy at night allowing one to 'come down to earth' after listening to great music.
    Getting the keys was easier and faster than checking in a hotel, and communicating with Kimball worked splendidly.

  • Great stay in a nice appartment!

  • Great location. Very close to subway station and Central Park. Couldn't ask for a better spot. Kimball was prompt with response and instructions. Had no issues with wifi as other reviews mentioned. Shower was a little hard to figure out even after reading instructions in the "house manual." Apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Highly reccomend! We will be back!

  • Great location - right by Central Park, near subway, the Natural History Museum, and local places to eat. The apartment has plenty of space and is comfortable. We felt lucky to be able to stay there while in NYC.

  • We had a lovely warm stay here over Thanksgiving weekend. Everything was as described - although somehow we hadn't picked up on the fact that the mezzanine bed area isn't full height. Anyway - it didn't matter at all, just made the stay extra cosy. Very convenient for getting around town and a friendly neighborhood.

  • Place was great. Awesome location and perfect size for the two of us. One thing to mention is that the bed is up a ladder and the ceiling once you climb to the top is quite low--about 3.5 feet. Since we couldn't stand up and didn't want to crawl to the bed, we slept on the futon which was fine. Other than that, everything was great! Thanks so much for a great vacation rental!

  • Really good location and easy key pick up. Kimball is communicative and flexible. Apartment has a classic NY feel. Never heard a single neighbor. Easy walk to the subway and park. Thanks Kimball!
