About This Listing
Why pay $$$$ for a hotel room, when you can enjoy a beautifully furnished, perfectly located home-away-from-home for your Big Apple Adventure for half the price? Steps from NYC's best restaurants, museums, theaters and parks! Impeccable reviews! :-)
Why pay SO much more for a tiny hotel room? My home can be yours!
It's perfectly located on Manhattan's UWS, just off Amsterdam Ave. on West 83rd Street. That means that you are a VERY short walk to the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Riverside Park, The Children's Museum of Manhattan, Cafe Lalo, and about 100 of NYC's finest restaurants! SUBWAYS are just a few blocks away, for easy access to Times Square and the whole city! Easy walk to Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and so, SO MUCH MORE!!!
Two sunny bedrooms, with a queen-sized bed and three twin beds, comfortable living area, eat-in kitchen, one full bathroom, front hallway, and all the appliances and internet you could need! Air conditioning in every room; cozy in the winter. It's on the fourth floor, so lots of sun and fresh air! No elevator in my small, quiet building, but all is very safe behind double-secure front doors!
The apartment could sleep up to five, and even more on the cushy sofa, but I'd prefer to keep it to one couple or a small family.
Payment must be arranged in advance. A security deposit will be necessary to hold the apartment for you, and will be returned to you upon check-out. I've done this many times before, and have many happy "friends" from all over (NYC, Salt Lake City, France, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, Argentina, etc.), who either stay here themselves or bring in family to visit for a wedding or the holidays.
This apartment is an easy, hassle-free, luxurious, ideal place to launch a terrific NYC Adventure!
Enjoy the best NYC has to offer!
PS - Discounts may be possible, especially for extended stays.
While staying at my home, my guests enjoy the use of everything in the apartment! Of course, my address is perfectly located to give access to everything this great city has to offer, by foot, subway, bus, taxi...and bicycle rentals (right around the corner!).
Interaction with Guests
I love to to greet my guests upon arrival, and bid them a fond farewell at check-out. I'm always available to offer guidance or assistance during their stay, but many folks know know exactly where they want to go, and what they want to do, and I only hear from them when they contact me to make reservations again for next year!
As you must read in my many amazing reviews, my neighborhood is just perfect for families, young couples, retirees, and business travelers, with countless amazing and diverse restaurants and pubs; US Post Office, rental car agencies, office supply, and gift shops; movie theaters, concert halls, and Broadway/42nd Street; the world-renowned Central Park and Riverside Park for breathtaking views of the city; gourmet delis, supermarkets, and pharmacies, laundromats; short walk to Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim and "Museum Mile"; every convenience and service you could ever need!
My doorstep is just a couple blocks from the subways at Broadway (1/2/3), and Central Park West (A/C/E). Buses run a half block away on Broadway and on Amsterdam Ave. The streets are busy with taxis 24 hours a day! I am happy to recommend shuttle and limo services that will drop you off or pick you up at my door for you trips to/from the airport. :-)
Other Things to Note
I work very hard to maintain a comfortable, clean, and welcoming home for my guests, who travel from all over the world to explore and enjoy New York City! I invite you to read through the 100+ positive and fond comments submitted by my previous guests - many of whom I now count among my friends!
NO SMOKING, pets, or loud parties (unless arranged in advance, and I'm invited!). This is a quiet, clean, small, and very safe building, inhabited by families and young professionals. I count on my guests showing the same consideration, respect, and discretion as they would in their own homes. I am very pleased to say that most of my marvelous guests leave my home as neat and spotless as they found it! I love to write loving reviews of my new-found friends!
William was an outstanding host. He was very communicative, responsive and gracious. He wasn't able to be there when we arrived, but his neighbor, Rachel, was lined up in advance and was very helpful.
The apartment is a light and very comfortable 2-bedroom. It easily and comfortably accommodated our family of four -- great kitchen, comfortable sleeping spaces, nice living room, and a wonderful and convenient Upper West Side location.
I would highly recommend William's place for a stay in New York City.
From booking to checkout our experience really was seamless. This makes such a difference, especially after a very long flight from Australia.
The apartment itself was very welcoming and had everything we needed, including some basics in the fridge to get us going. The beds were really comfortable and the shower was excellent!
The neighbourhood was great - within close walking distance to a number of subway lines, restaurants, cafes and shops.
We stayed for a week and I can't recommend it highly enough. We would definitely stay again.

Nous avons passé un très bon moment à New York City.
L'appartement se trouve dans une quartier très agréable où il y a pas mal de restaurants et de commerces. Plusieurs stations de métro se trouvent à quelques rues de là. L'appartement est grand pour une ville comme New York. La taille est idéale pour 4 personnes.
Par contre, nous avons eu un souci avec les cafards. En Belgique, nous ne sommes pas habitués à cela et ça nous a vraiment posé un problème. Nous avons découvert un nid dans la cuisine. Nous avons contacté William qui a fait venir un exterminateur. Malgré cela il en sortait encore. Heureusement, ils restaient concentrés dans la cuisine. Notre hôte a essayé mais malheureusement, nous pensons que c'est tout l'immeuble qui devrait être traité. Etant attentif à ses invités, nous imaginons que William fera le nécessaire.
I immediately came to the apartment with a professional exterminator. This problem was very quickly solved within 48 hours, and completely remedied with two thorough visits. My beautiful home is in NYC, and I am always vigilant; this was an isolated event. I am embarrassed that this happened, but this is the FIRST time...and the LAST time! Please read my other 128 VERY HAPPY REVIEWS! :-)
The apartment was spacious, bright and very well maintained.
We were met by Rachel who was very gracious and helpful.
Yes, we would definitely return.. Great location .. I would rate give our experience 5 stars..
It has been a pleasure to stay at the William home. He is a very nice and helpful host, very welcoming person and always very pleased to help or to advice you concerning things to do in New York.
The flat is very nice, welcoming, and very clean. The Neighbourhood is very nice and quiet. You will appreciate this kind flat which is not far away from central park, and with the situated 5 min away, the flat is in a nice avenue with lots of pubs and restaurant.
I recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to restart this experience !
The apartment is great, and the location and neighborhood are excellent. Easy access to the bus and subway, and it was safe when we came back home late at night by bus. It is as comfortable and light-filled as shown in the photos. William takes care of every detail, the apartment is incredibly well equipped. The communication with him was excellent, he generously provided great advice for our trip to NY. I will surely recommend his place to my family and friends.
