Cozy, Convenient to NYC & a Great Value
My family and I enjoyed our short stay in this charming 3rd floor walk-up railroad flat style apartment very conveniently located in the quiet (but not totally unhip) Westchester burb of Hastings-on-Hudson. The apartment could easily accommodate two couples, each with their own room plus a couch in the front salon for an extra guest.
The flat is a 3-minute walk from a cute local café, Antoinette's, where you can get a deliciously strong and frothy cappuccino before walking another few minutes to the station to catch the train to Grand Central with no hassle -- 30 min door to door. Driving is also an easy option, and street parking in front of the apartment was always available.
Sleeping arrangements were comfortable, but as with any radiator-heated building there are hisses, rattles and clanks throughout the night - so bring headphones if you are a light sleeper. The bathroom shower is nothing spectacular, and depending on the timing the hot water seems a little patchy, but everything is clean and tidy. Nice gas stove in the kitchen and a small shared back terrace for bike storage or a little fresh air.
Overall, instead of being crammed into an overpriced Manhattan hotel room, we were able to have a cosy convenient stay just north of the city.
Good evening. For our first experience in New York, you can not beat this apartment.
It is roomy for four, very well located near central park between columbus and amsterdam avenue.
quiet. apartment with all amenities.
a big thank you.
See you soon in your beautiful country.
We are a family with 3 kids ( 5,10,12 years old) from Denmark. We had a really nice stay. The apartment was perfect for us. It was clean and cozy.The neighborhood near Central park was nice and quiet. We had one problem with a door. It was easy to reach Wes. He was very helpful. The problem was solved easily.
Very good location, quiet, good neighbors. Very close to Central Park. Ideal for relaxing after walking around New York City. Will definitely recommend to all my friends. Special thanks to Ryan for the meeting.
L'appart nous a apporté beaucoup de confort, il est propre, très bien équpé, dans un environnement agréable, que nous recommandons pour être au calme après les visites de Manhattan! On mettait à peine 20 mn pour arriver au pieds de l'Empire state building! Ryan a été accueillant et très gentil à notre arrivée. Un super parking pour la voiture sécurisé et un immeuble près du port pour une balade le soir et manger japonais. Nous vous le recommandons.
we are a family of five with 3 kids aged 11 to 16 y.o and we stayed at Ryan's apartment for 5 days. The apartment is extremely well located, near Central Park and near metro and bus stations going downtown in 15/20 mn. Ryan was a great host and was very responsive and helpful.
The apartment was however a bit of a disappointment, as it was rather dark and needed some freshening up. The bathroom was the real bummer because it is very humid and smells at all times.
Wonderful family stay at Wes's condo. Huge pool, easy parking, and plenty of space. Big thumbs up.
This apartment is exactly as presented in the listing. Easily accommodated our family of two adults and three children. Excellent location just a block or so off Central Park, and easy access to the subway. We visited during a major heat wave, and appreciated the excellent air conditioning. Ryan was nice to greet us earlier than expected, and was friendly and helpful with local directions. I would definitely recommend this location to others seeking a comfortable place to stay and use as a base to explore NYC.
We had a great time in NYC. Thanks to Wes and Ryan for making the A/C work because it was nearly 100 F. Shops and Path are just steps away, also the Newport Mall was great for cooling down. There are enough Beds and Towels for nearly a whole Football-Team! Everything worked fine! thanks!
This was a great place! It is exactly as advertised. It is in walking distance to so many things, and the close proximity to the subway stations makes getting anywhere a breeze. We all felt very safe, and couldn't believe how quiet the place was. Ryan was very helpful upon our arrival, and very welcoming. We couldn't have asked for more.
Super easy going person , an amazing guest, well behave , highly recommend Ryan as a guest, Thank you Ryan for your stay :)
Nice people,left our place respectably clean.
Needless to stay, whenever you rent to a guest that is also a host on Airbnb , you will be lucky because they will treat your property like their own. Wes & Amy were excellent guests and left my space clean & in good order.
Wes was the perfect guest. His comings and goings were completely unnoticed. I enjoyed the brief encounter and look forward to our meeting again.
Weston was super easy to work with. He left the place in perfect condition. Roommates said he was a pleasant visitor. I would love to host him again if he decides a Park Slope stay is in order.
Wes is great host with a very comfortable and spacious apartment. I love spending time at his place because it's so close to great restaurants and accessible to the rest of the city. Best of all, it's a five minute walk to the most beautiful parts of Central Park!
I have stayed in Wes' apartment on several occasions, and it is a beautiful, large 1 bedroom. Very comfortable and ideally located, one block from Central Park and one block from the heart of the Upper West Side on Broadway. Beautiful kitchen with excellent natural light.
