Stay at our fantastically located (Third Avenue at 88th Street) studio apartment that sleeps up to four, and enjoy being at the very heart of Manhattan's Upper East Side - giving you the easiest access to Central Park and all the major museums.

The Space

This apartment has been upgraded since photos were taken, and now features an amazing Stearns and Foster pillowtop mattress, to ensure your comfort and restful sleep.

Previous guests have enjoyed this apartment's convenience, and we're sure you will too! Our apartment accommodates up to four guests on its queen-sized bed and luxury queen fold-out sleeper sofa. (Please note that the our mattress is protected with a bedbug -proof cover for your peace of mind.) It is located on the third floor (up two flights of stairs), and faces the away from the street so you don't get all the street noise.

The apartment is fully furnished with everything you need for an enjoyable stay, including: luxury linens, towels, Wireless Internet, Air Conditioner, fully-equipped kitchen (including coffee and an assortment of teas),Cable TV and BluRay DVD (with free streaming of movies via Netflix), hair dryer, iron, bath soap and shampoo.

It is only a five minute walk to Central Park and Museum Mile (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum and Guggenheim Museum, and many more). Yankee Stadium is less than 20 minutes away by subway. Plus, convenient and fast access to the rest of Manhattan via an express subway stop (4,5,6 line) only 2 minutes away.

Please be respectful, clean and be a non-smoker! Please note: we will ask for a copy of your passport/ID upon booking. We can also supply you with the same, if you would like.

We keep our calendars up-to-date, so if it doesn't show any availability someone else already reserved the dates.

We're looking forward to hosting you. Be sure to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable!

Getting around

You have great access to Manhattan from this apartment via the nearby 4,5 and 6 metro lines at the 86th and Lexington Metro Stop - three blocks away.

Additionally you can easily get to the Upper West Side from this apartment via the M86 bus (to the museum of Natural History) or the M4 bus (to Columbia University/Morningside Heights).

Street parking is available, though cars need to be moved for street cleaning on some weekdays. Otherwise cars can be left parked on nearby streets all weekend long without problem. Otherwise, there are many nearby parking garages with daily rates of around $25.

Other Things to Note

We do not charge a cleaning fee. In order to maintain this policy, we do ask you to please leave the apartment in an orderly state.

2.Put used towels and sheets in the clothes hamper in the closet
3.Vacuum or sweep using the provided Swiffer, as needed
4.Dispose of any garbage or recycling

Additional cleaning items are under the kitchen sink if needed. We really appreciate your understanding and care. Thanks so much!

  • The apartment is exactly as the pictures show, it was very clean when I arrived and the pillows and sheets were quality. Doug responded to my emails in a timely manner and was very helpful. Doug and Claudia made my first AirBnb experience a painless one. Would definitely recommend the apartment to a friend.

  • The place is just great! Nice bed, nice sheets, quiet! You can find everything you need in the neighborhood: shops, drugstores, delis! Very close to Central Park, subway station, Metropolitan Museum. Doug and Claudia helped with anything we needed and also give a lot of nice tips about the city. When I go back to NY, I'd definitely stay there again!

  • A charming apartment in a fantastic location! We loved the neighborhood and its proximity to Central Park and Museum Mile, as well as the subway and some great eateries.

    Doug and Claudia were very thoughtful, leaving us a compendium of tips and suggestions. They were also very helpful and responsive to any queries we had along the way.

    Thank you again Doug & Claudia, for your hospitality!

  • My stay in this apartment was a really good experience. This was my first stay ever in New York and I am happy that I choose this apartment instead of a hotel, giving my living a feeling of "at home". I was here for work reasons and it was relaxing to "go home" in the evening and enjoy the calm of the apartment.

    The apartment was clean, and more than well equipped (umbrellas, films and guide books, detailed and good instructions regarding the apartment, comfortable bed, kitchen equipment, etc). I also appreciated the calm and silence away from the street, the neighbourhood offering not only some of the greatest museums in the world (I warmly recommend the Egyptian dept of the Metropolitan) but also Fairways, and an innumerable choice of restaurants, diners, and Take Aways. The Subway was very near as well.

    Thanks Doug also for being so helpful and quick to reply to my questions!

  • We stayed in Dougla's apartment for one week and had a great time there. The apartment has a great location, near the subway station and close to many museums and places to visit. Moreover Doug it's an incredible host, he was super responsive, we arrived by 8am a Saturday morning and he was already there ready to help us with the baggage. Also, the apartment has everything you could possible need. Great place to stay in NY!

  • My husband and I stayed at Doug and Claudia's for 3 weeks. We had a great time. The apartment was exactly as advertised, and the location was very convenient to major attractions and the subway line (having quick access to the express trains were a bonus!). We also had a few packages delivered, and Doug collected and dropped them off for us. The check-in was very easy. Our flight was quite delayed (and late in the evening!), but Doug waited for us and oriented us to the apartment. Doug remained highly responsive throughout our stay. The neighbourhood was safe and quiet, and had everything we needed within walking distance (groceries, laundry, cafes, restaurants, shops, etc.). The layout of the apartment was great; we didn't feel crammed. The bed and sheets were comfortable, and we liked that shampoo/conditioner/body wash was all provided. Doug also came by once a week to change our sheets and towels. Overall, we had a fantastic experience, and highly recommend this flat.

  • The apartment is a single large room with a bathroom. The furnishings are of good quality and comfortable and the kitchen etc have everything one could need. Local shopping for food etc is convenient and the variety and quality are good. The subway is nearby and it is a short walk to the museums of 5th etc.
    Doug was very responsive and helpful and in total I found the experience to be very much as I had hoped.

  • We rent this flat for 7 nights. Everything was perfect, the flat was clean with everything we need. Doug was very reactive. He answered all our emails very quickly. He was always available and helpful for our last day we the keys and our luggages.
    Also, he gives us tips for restaurants and supermarkets in the neighbourhood.
    The flat is really near the subway with the 4 5 & 6 trains. It's very easy to go to midtown, downtown & Brooklyn.
    Our stay in NYC was just perfect.

  • Doug went out of his way to work with the previous nights renters to accommodate our early arrival, which was soooo helpful! While I totally didn't expect this to be possible, I appreciated the flexibility.

    Convenient, clean, and comfortable, rented by nice people.

A little about us - Doug and Claudia met in late September 2001, and have been together ever since. Doug is originally from Wisconsin and Claudia is from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Our helper, little Olivia, is a native New Yorker. We're both educated, neat professionals who've decided to make New York our home. Like you, we enjoy visiting new places whenever we can - Paris and Northern Spain last year. We're believers in what airbnb offers, and have enjoyed the hospitality we've received in the homes of others far more than anything that can be found in a five-star hotel.
