Love the city and love to host.
Love to travel and meet new people.
Hope to meet you soon.......
This is our second stay (and we hope not our last) at this apartment. The location is great and the studio apartment is just what you need--a queen sized bed, a large kitchen, lots of storage. In addition, it is in a building with a door man who was most helpful when we had a problem with a restaurant reservation. Highly recommended.
Thanks David. Hope to see you next year!
I used to be a hotel person, but now and always I am a vacation rental person, and that is because of experiences such as I just had while staying in an apartment on the Upper West Side owned by Zviya Lushe---one of the most kind and thoughtful people I have ever known. Well before my flight to New York, Zyvia communicated to me about what shuttle service she recommended and sent a long list of activities In which I might enjoy engaging.
Upon arrival, I was thrilled to find her apartment exactly as advertised....perfect for my 8 night holiday in my favorite city.
Helpful throughout my stay, Zviya made sure that I had everything needed. She even took time to meet with me personally---an incredibly generous gesture on her part! Warning: you may never wish to leave! The apartment is very comfortable (like home), and the personal attention an unexpected pleasure.
As for my other recommendations if planning a trip to the Big Apple, don't miss Kinky Boots---The Musical, walking the High Line (order the free tickets to walk the Rail Yards before it is closed for
It's renovation), walking along the Hudson on the Greenway in Riverside Park and beyond, a bike tour with Bike The Big Apple, and chocolate cheesecake from Carnegie Deli....the list goes on. But all of the best moments were those in Zviya's company.
YOU are the generous one! I enjoyed your company and know that I will get to see you again. Thanks for your kind words. Best, Zviya
Exactly as advertised - great place, great location, great host. Safe, quiet, very comfortable and clean. Perfect location, very near the subway. Thanks for a terrific experience and I look forward to staying again soon. Highly recommended.
It was MY pleasure. Yes, please come back soon. Maybe next time bring your beautiful family?
I am 67 years old and have just spent 3 weeks in Zviya's Upper West Side apartment. I had a wonderful time, and was very happy with my choice of apartment. I had some prior knowledge of Manhattan, and wanted to stay in the Upper West Side and close to a subway station. Zviya's apartment is terrific - it has everything you need, is clean and easy to live in. I was not nervous about being alone, but if you were, you need not be! This apartment is in the safest building imaginable, and the 24 hour doormen are ever present and ever helpful. I believe the location of the apartment could not be better. It is about 30 seconds walk from 72nd Street station - a major stop - and is surrounded by food stores, restaurants and retail of all (URL HIDDEN) is an easy walk to the beautiful Theodore Roosevelt Park and Central Park, which I think is one of the world's wonders! It is about 30 seconds' walk from the iconic Beacon Theatre - I saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.... My only criticism of the apartment is that it was a little overheated (for me!) I used the aircon, but it was too noisy to use at night. The fan over the bed was very useful. Zviya could not have been kinder to me. This really is an amazing apartment in a fantastic location - no hotel would come near what you get here for the price. And you have wifi, a computer, TV with cable, including HBO, a free landline phone and modern appliances in every room. Before I left Australia I bought some dvd's on Amazon and got them shipped to the apartment - everything arrived safely while I was there with much reduced shipping costs. It's also easy to stroll down Broadway to the Apple store, the Lincoln Plaza and the Shops at Columbus Circle. Don't hesitate to book this apartment!
You ARE a kind person and I have enjoyed hosting you. Thanks
Zviya was fantastic. She was extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. From the time we booked until after we had left she ensured our stay was as enjoyable and easy as possible. I'll be recommending her place to friends and family.
Thanks, Carl. Recommendations are always appreciated. I was happy to host you.
We stayed at Zviya's beautiful studio in the Upper West Side, NY last weekend. I have to say it was all fantastic! The place is exactly like on the photos you see, the location couldn't be better, Zviya was super responsive and one email away, always ready to help and guide. The studio is very comfortable for 3 people, decorated with great taste. It is super nice that the kitchen is separated from the rest of the space, and every single kitchen appliance worked well. The apartment is super quite and yet a walk or a few subway stations from anything. The subway station is on 72th St, really close. We definitely recommend Zviya's beautiful studio to any one! We plan to return. Thank you Zviya!!
Thanks Paula, so happy you enjoyed your weekend! It was a pleasure having you!
I booked the appartment for a trip for my parents.
Zviya just knows how to host people! You could not ask for a better communication beforehand, during or after the stay. Unfortunately we never met her in person, but hope to be back some time.
The appartment was lovely lovely furnished, very well equipped, there was even a computer that my parents were allowed to use. Very helpful to explore New York sights and plan the day ahead.
The bed was super comfy, the kitchen had everything you needed and an umbrella available was just the right thing on Friday :-)
The appartment is perfectly located, you can reach almost everything in walking distance.
Doorman service is another asset, the doorman was very helpful and kind, according to my parents.
We can highly recommend the place for a leisure stay in NYC. Hopefully we can come back some time. Thanks Zviya!
Daniela, it was a pleasure communicating with you and hosting your parents. You are all lovely people, I feel like I know you even though we did not meet. I hope to meet you next time you come. Thanks for staying,
Bonjour à tous
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à NY dans l'appartement de zviya. Super quartier, calme et tranquille, métro ligne qui vous mene direct ainsi que le bus le 104 à time square.
Zviya nous a toujours suivi bien qu'elle ne soit pas à NY et nous reviendrons dans son appartement très pratique avec les portiers qui sont là 24 h sur 24 et très serviables. Je recommande cet endroit et sa gentille hôte
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à New York. L'appartement est vraiment très bien situé, dans un quartier très agréable et proche de tout : la station de métro et l'entrée sur Central Park sont à 2 blocs au sud, le supermarché est de l'autre côté de la rue, et l'immeuble est entouré de plein de resto sympa, de même que de la Levain Bakery, réputée pour faire les meilleurs cookies de la ville.
L'appartement est vraiment tel que sur les photos, très calme et très propre. Nous le recommandons vivement et n'hésiterons pas à y retourner lors d'un prochain voyage.
Zviya est de très bons conseils et reste à votre écoute avant et pendant votre séjour.
Thanks and see you soon, I hope.
We arrived very late from Penn station but the doorman let us in and we felt right at home in your apartment. We went to the grocery shop across the road at 1pm for our breakfast needs in the morning. We found it easy to get around, walking to central park and the areas around the apartment were nice and safe to walk at anytime. We found the subway easy to get too and did allot of exploring by ourselves.
I found Zviya lovely to deal with, very prompt with any questions we had.
I would recommend anyone staying there and would love to stay again if I come back to New York. Jude and I both loved New York!!!! Thanks so much for sharing your apartment.

Thank you Debra and Jude, you are welcome back ANYTIME! Hope you are enjoying San Francisco.
Zviya was amazing guest!
Communication was easy and fun, She was very responsible and quiet, I really recommend her for any other host and will love to have her again!
Zviya is a very nice woman. Communication was easy. She left the house in a perfect condition and observed the house rules. I recommend and would love to host Zviya here again any time.
Zviya was a great guest in my home. She was on time and very communicative. Although my bed was too firm for her liking I tried my best to give alternative solutions to make her happier during her stay. I would not hesitate to host her again in my home.
Great guest! Very clean and great communication.
Zviya was a great guest. Very kind polite.
She's absolute recommend guest for any host.
Zviya and her family were great guests. Very nice people, very clean, and treated my home as if it was their own. Plus the kids are adorable. I totally recommend them.
We miss the quiet time in he backyard and the beautiful weather in California. It is brutal here.
Great group. thoughtful as well! Will always be welcome back.
I have known Zviya for several years now and I can sincerely vouch that she is honest and very generous. Her reviews speak for herself. She takes care of everyone who comes to her apartment in NYC and goes the extra mile. I assure anyone who will work with Zviya that you will be pleasantly surprised by her honesty, integrity, and generosity.
