Awesome comfortable home in fantastic location. Very peaceful, a great place to unwind after a busy day. Ilana and Ken were wonderful hosts. All the creature comforts and deluxe beds. Our family of 2 adults and 3 children had a fantastic stay.
We had an absolutely perfect stay in Illana's beautiful apartment.
It's even lovelier than described and very practically situated.
Illana is a wonderful host - extremely helpful, generous and kind. Our teenage daughters can't wait to come back.
Great apartment, very clean and in a great location. Ilana was very gracious, welcoming and helpful. Would definitely re-visit.
A wonderful stay in new york! We have been lucky to meet Ilana and Ken who turned out our stay in a really unforgettable one. Ilana is absolutely kind and warm very attentive to all needs and full of good suggestions on places and things to do. The place is absolutely beautiful exactly as it is in the pictures: a real charming, elegant upper west side house. We really felt at home and if I think of a place to suggest for a stay in NY this is the one! I hope we will be able to spend some days at Ilana's place in the future
We just returned from a vacation that my family rates as the best ever. This apt. just made the trip! It is so comfortable, and the location is perfect. We loved the neighborhood with all the shops and restaurants and easy subway access. The rooms were lovingly appointed with beautiful pillows, rugs, and framed art. We had a friend over for dinner and played cards in the library. There were candles and fresh flowers to greet us, and we had absolutely everything we needed for a fabulous stay. Llana is an artist and it shows! This home is extraordinary and will not disappoint!
Words cannot express the beautiful experience my boyfriend, his 4 children and I had at Ilana's home in NYC. warm, exciting and spacious. the park being so close was a dream and the space allowed for a true nyc experience. we are looking forward to returning.
so much thanks to llana for making this time so seamless in all ways.
Both the location and the owner (Ilana) are great. We really felt at home and comfortable during our stay in New York. Iliana's support and care during our stay was priceless. The feeling we had was that we were staying at a friend's place. This was the best way I could find to introduce my family to New York (albeit the heat wave we have experienced).
It was great experience!
Simply stunning! I highly recommend this apartment.The apartment and location were exactly as described and perfect for my family. It was clean, quiet, safe, and in a nice neighborhood with nice neighbors as well. It was a block and a half from Central Park, with Whole Foods and other markets within a short walking distance. There was an abundance of good restaurants nearby. We were also a short cab ride to all points of interest in the city. Ilana was a gracious host - she met us upon arrival and gave us all the information about the apartment and neighborhood that we needed. She was warm, welcoming, and made us feel like friends coming into town for a visit - she even left fresh flowers. Without a doubt we would rent this apartment again next time we are in the city with the family. Ilana, it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home!
In Short, if you read the reviews prior to this one, you will understand why there is simply little more to add. The apartment was exactly as advertised. And for that matter, so was Ilana. A wonderful lady and gracious host. We had a full house. The apartment was immaculate and supper clean. The location is unbeatable if you want to experience Central Park and remain in close proximity to Mid-Town. I just don't think its possible to gain better value in NYC than having the opportunity to stay in this home. Could not recommend more highly....
My family and I really appreciated the apartment. It was peaceful, beautiful, and very comfortable. Everything we needed for a great stay was provided and Ilana was very responsive to all my communications and questions. The furnishings were really beautiful and we had space to spread out. She even allowed us to check out late on the last day which was a great help as we had a later flight. The neighborhood is clean and calm, a nice counterpoint to some of the busier parts of the city. We also loved the easy access to Central Park. Would definitely stay again!
A lovely family! I was sorry to see them leave.
