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, and get only 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.
All transactions are handled through the very secure AirBnB system. 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. Many return guests, as well! :-)
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 is the best host you can imagine - doesn't matter what question we had, he always answered within minutes.
He seems to be present all time and that was really important for us.
We loved his cozy and clean apartment which was perfect to relax after sightseeing. Also it takes just a few minutes to get to subway.
And don't forget Cafe Lalo which has perfect american cheesecakes, capuccino and cocktails.
So we enjoyed it a lot and if we ever will come back to New York Williams apartment will be our first choice.
William from he first contact was a delightful, responsive host whom I can only praise. In the lead up to the visit he helped with guidance on cab firms, how to get around NYC and with little tips the newcomer would not know. This was all get helpful for us.
The apartment itself was perfect for our needs. As a 4 person family including 2 growing boys the apartment was spot on. It was clean comfortable safe and well located. The subway was three blocks away with easy connections to the rest of the city . There were plenty of restaurants, bars and coffee shops close by. All in all it was all we could have asked for.
The only thing I would warn people is this is a 4 th floor apartment with no elevator. If you cannot mange stairs then this is not for you. If that is not an issue as it was not for us, I cannot recommend William and this apartment highly enough .
This was a great place to stay. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. William was very helpful and accommodating. A very convenient location. We even found free parking further down the street. Looking forward to booking again!
William a répondu très rapidement à toutes nos questions avant le voyage et pendant notre séjour, durant lequel ses conseils ont été précieux. Merci à lui pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité !
Het appartement van William op W-83 street bleek een schot in de roos. De beschrijving klopte helemaal en William bleek de perfecte host die je meteen thuis laat voelen. De buurt is prima en in de directe omgeving zijn talloze leuke restaurants, winkels en supermarktjes zodat je alles snel kunt krijgen. Bovendien is de upper-west een veilige buurt, lekker dicht bij Central Park. Kortom, voor ons een ideale plek.
This is the real deal folks. William is an excellent host;extremely receptive and responsive in all regards. The place is centrally located and within walking distance to sites, restaurants and shops.
