The Space

Thank you for the interest! My place is located in one of the nicest and safest areas of Manhattan, the Upper East Side (UES)
This is a 1 bedroom apartment, very cozy and comfortable, that can accommodate 2 people. The bedroom has a full size bed and the living room has a large sofa which can be used as a bed if needed. The kitchen area includes all the basic amenities, dishes / glassware / silverware / pots etc. The bathroom covers basic needs (the bath tub is too small for an adult, therefore the shower is recommended). Bed sheets and towels (website hidden) / Free Wi-Fi and TV/cable available.

The unit is on the ground floor towards the back of the building overseeing an interior garden, which makes it very quiet regardless of the time of day. The building is a 5 stories brownstone on a quiet and safe street. Front door locked at all times with intercom service.

Neighborhood: 10min. walking distance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park, Guggenheim and Whitney Museum also close.

Easy downtown access using the green line 4/5/6 (the express stop is 5-10min walking distance) and crosstown access using the busses 79 & 86. Lots of great restaurants/bars/coffee shops in the area.

Grocery stores and laundry/dry cleaning facilities available within one block. There is parking on the street (although it might be challenging to find a spot during peak hours) and several garages around.

I greatly enjoy living in this apartment and I hope you will, too!


Getting around

- uptown / downtown subway: you can take any train on the green line (4, 5 or 6).

  • Very nice and safe neighborhood.
    The apartment is perfect for two or three people that want to walk the city. It´s very close to the Met and Guggenheim Museums and the Central Park.

  • Our stay at Marie-Jeanne's apartment was great. The apartment is exactly how it looks in the pictures. It is very well located on the upper east side of Manhattan, lots of restaurants and coffe shops very close, quiet area. Marie-Jeanne was a very nice host even considering that we didn't have the pleasure to meet her. I would love to stay here again when I come back to NYC.

  • Hemos estado 9 días en el apartamento de Marie. La ubicación del apartamento es buena, A 30 minutos de Time Square caminando. El apartamento esta en una zona tranquila y segura, en sus alrededores hay un buen supermercado que nos recomendó Marie (FAIRWAY). A 10 minutos de Central PARK caminando y Metropolitan Museum. Nosotros nos recorrimos Manhattan caminando todos los días. Les voy a describir el apartamento: el apartamento de alrededor 25 m2, tiene un dormitorio pequeño, con una cama que prácticamente lo ocupa el 80 por ciento. Tiene un pequeño armario para colocar tus cosas, ya que el resto esta totalmente ocupado de ropa de Marie. El salón esta junto con la cocina. Tiene un sofá y una pequeña mesa de 50 cm de altura y 1 metro de largo. Muy incomoda para comer. La cocina era pequeña pero tenia todos utensilios para poder cocinar. En general el apartamento tiene demasiadas cosas lo que hace un poco incomoda la estancia. Si entramos al cuarto de baño, podemos decir que la ducha esta un poco defectuosa y muy pequeña. La calefacción tenia muy buena temperatura (alrededor de 30º C). La limpieza de apartamento con un poco de polvo y algo de suciedad al hacer el Check in, pero creo que es debido a la cantidad de cosas que tiene el apartamento para el tamaño que tiene. En general podemos decir que le damos un aprobado ( 2,5 sobre 5).

  • Perfect apartment for a couple, confortable bed, good and well equiped kitchen. Ground floor, with a view to the rear garden, a true oasis in Manhattan.
    Excellent location, 10min walk from the subway. Great neighborhood, plenty of choices to eat out.
    I highly recommend it.

  • We stood for 6 days and everyhing was really nice. Nice neighborhood, the apartment is so quiet and just a few minutes from the subway. Marie-Jeane took care of everything and she was always available for any question.

Young professional living and working in NYC. I love to travel and experience different cultures. I usually use Airbnb myself when I travel, so I'm excited to give other people the opportunity to stay at my place and enjoy this great city… NYC!!!
