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!
abbiamo trascorso 4 notti nell'appartamento di William ed abbiamo avuto una accoglienza favolosa, non soltanto per la disponibilità del proprietario, ma soprattutto per la cura che ha messo per non farci mancare nessuna comodità (abbiamo molto gradito l'acqua fresca in frigo quando siamo arrivati, oltre a tutte le altre cose).
Le stanze sono spaziose e ben abitabili.
l'appartamento è veramente in una delle migliori zone di Manhattan, a due passi dallo spettacolare Central Park e dal museo di storia naturale, vicino anche al meraviglioso metropolitan museum of art, comodissimo per la metropolitana e con supermercato e farmacia vicinissimi.
Le finestre sono luminose, ed affacciate sulla street, non sulle rumorose Avenues (alle sirene delle ambulanze e della polizia dopo poco si fa l'abitudine; esse fanno parte integrante di NY, come il cinguettare degli uccelli in un parco nazionale).
Abbiamo trovato l'appartamento impeccabilmente pulito (anche forni e bollitori erano perfetti), accogliente in tutti i particolari.
Grazie Sig. William
What a great place to stay - great location, spacy and comfortable apartment, nice building. Would recomment this at any time - and like to come back !
My family and I loved staying at William's place! It was the perfect size and location for us. Close to the metro and lots of great restaurants close by. William was very welcoming and communication was easy -- quick responses and clear instructions. We hope to be back for a longer stay next time!
William's place is great and meet our needs perfectly. He was able to accommodate our last minute needs and help us out. Communication was great. I would highly recommend staying here.
We can absolutely recomend Williams appartment. Everything was as described and William was a very good host.
From the moment I inquired about renting William's lovely Upper West Side apartment , through the booking and the eventual staying at his rental everything went like a charm .
William was astonishingly prompt in all replies to my questions .
The apartment was spacious , immaculately well kept and a joy to rest our weary feet after seeing the sights of NYC .
The apartment is located close to many attractions ..Central Park being a short few blocks away .
Myself and my family would stay at William's apartment again in a heartbeat
Kudos to Rachel for all your help getting us settled in after a long drive from Toronto
William is a first rate host. I chose his apartment in part because of the large number of glowing reviews he had, and I can see that they are all thoroughly deserved. He was very responsive from my first enquiry through to the end of our stay, and made us feel extremely welcome - nothing was too much trouble. He met us at the apartment as scheduled (even insisting on carrying our luggage up to the fourth floor!) and arranged somewhere for us to leave our bags on our last day after checking out. He also remained available to assist us throughout our stay.
The apartment is exactly as advertised. It was clean, comfortable and fantastically well located. And, very importantly, the shower water pressure is awesome.
It is a short walk from a wide selection of subway lines, and the local area has some great restaurants. Central Park is also a stone's throw away.
I cannot recommend William and his apartment highly enough, and would definitely stay there again - a flawless experience!
