I love traveling and discovering new places. I also love the excitement of living in NYC. I enjoy entertaining guests visiting this beautiful city and hearing of their adventures at night over drinks.

The Host was really helpful ,explaining the area and things to do …We Came from New Zealand so this was great … Excellent location ,handy to everything and a superette on the corner …Maybe a little close to Harlem ( taxi driver told us ) but we didn't have any problems or see any….Lovely and clean and had everything we needed…Would stay again…..As photos so that was a change ….Thanks ...
Excellent position.very nice and really clean flat.Sam is a great host, very easy (email hidden)anks for all.
Great time spent in NYC. Sam's apartment is a great place to be to visit the city. Near the line 6 of the subway that go up and down in the city, it make the things easy. Also very near of Central Park and museum mile what are nice place to walk. The apartment is very nice, with food and US TV to relax after a hard day of visits...
- Close to central park, subway, grocery stores, local amenties etc
- Hosts provided more than enough basic necessities ie milk, sugar, salt, body soap, extra towels etc which is not common in short rentals (thank you!!)
- Hosts were easy to communicate with and very organised (they have a manual in the apartment which provides info of just about everything you will need)
- The sunroof leaked water into the apartment after a heavy snow storm. Suref came to the apartment the next morning with the building supervisor and I didn’t experience any water leaking into the apartment from there on
- No lifts
- Kitchen is really small – I had no choice but to rest the chopping board on top of the gas stove
-There is heating in the building but it still felt cold and its not adjustable (please note that I am anaemic). The heating also makes a hissing sound which can get a bit annoying after some time.
Due to the fact it’s a pre-war building, it doesn’t have a very modern feel (except for the wooden flooring). I would recommend this apartment to someone who was renting alone – could feel a bit small if theres 2 + guests staying here for a considerable amount of time
This apartment is in a fantastic location.
If you are looking for Central Park, Museums and easy subway access, you simply won't find better.
Central Park and Museum Mile are about 3 mins walk and the 96 Lex subway station is about 2 mins walk. This subway line runs north/south along Lexington and will drop you at all the sights of New York in a matter of minutes.
There is a great coffee shop downstairs, as well as several cool little bars close by. Grocery stores are aplenty with several just moments away including a 24hr pharmacy/grocery and a gourmet food market.
The apartment is very comfortable with nice new bed linen and towels. Our stay was in winter and the heating system is brilliant. The hot water is also perfect and has excellent water pressure!
The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook for yourself however we had take out or ate at one of the many great restaurants around the area.
There is a big HD TV with cable and high end sound system.
The wifi is high speed and a breeze to log into.
Sam is an excellent host and was accommodating to every request we had. She replied promptly to emails and check in was a breeze.
This apartment provided us with all the comforts of home and provided the perfect base for our first time in NYC!
Highly recommended, we will be back.
Appartement très bien situé (à 2 blocs de Central Park et 1 bloc du métro) et typique puisque très ancien avec briques rouges. Propreté impeccable et petites attentions dans le frigo et bouteille de vin; et très bon accueil. Le seul point négatif est l'isolation phonique et thermique dans la chambre à cause de la fenêtre (qui devrait être changée cet hiver) et les 5 étages à pied font un bon entrainement pour les jambes...Je vous le conseille à condition que le problème d'isolation soit résolu.
Very well situated apartment (in 2 blocks of Central Park and 1 block of the subway) and typical because very former with beautiful red bricks wall. Impeccable cleanliness and kindly attentions in the fridge and the wine bottle; and very good welcome. The only negative point is the sound and thermal insolation in the bedroom because of the window (which should be changed this winter) and 5 floors on foot make a good training for legs... I recommend it to you provided that the problem of insolation is solved.
Sam was very accomodating and helpful. We were able to reach him for any concerns. His place was clean and well located. Access to the roof was nice on summer evening. We were 2 New Zealanders on first trip to NYC. Would definitely stay here again!
The place is exactly like in the pictures, confortable,clean and perfect for two people. Maybe just miss a little table to eat,but has everything you need. It s in a great position ,very close to the metro(2 min) and to central park (5-8 min) . It has just two little disadvantages :it s a fifth floor without elevator (but Sam s husband helped us with the buggages) and the train noise from the bedroom window.
Sam and her husband are very gentle and fast to answer to our email/questions/request
We used the place for 8days and we had a great experience
Me hospedei no apartamento por 9 dias com minha namorada.
O apartamento é exatamente como nas fotos, pequeno e aconchegante.
A sua grande vantagem é ter uma pequena sala separada do quarto. A cama era confortável, o sono foi tranquilo, apesar do receio inicial de que os trens passando atrapalhassem.
Nos deram toalhas limpas e materiais de banheiro e a cozinha funcionava perfeitamente.
O prédio não possui elevador, sendo que o apartamento fica no quinto andar. Esse é o único ponto negativo.
A localização é muito boa, com metrô (96st) perto, CVS, 2 supermercados e várias opções para comer.
Os anfitriões foram extremamente atenciosos, nos recebendo com um sorriso e cerveja na geladeira mesmo depois de um atraso de mais de uma hora para chegar.
Não tenho do que reclamar.
Recomendo muito o apartamento.
We had a wonderful stay in this apartment a whole week. Location is perfect and quiet for Manhattan, close to the subway and the park for runners like us. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. I can't think of anything I missed. Would definitely stay there again!
