I am a European who stranded in NYC in 1999 and am loving it. Come and visit !
Très bel appartement, spacieux, très bien décoré et bien placé à côté de central park. 2 stations de métro desservant Manahattan et Brooklyn sont à deux pas.
Dirk est très réactif et arrangeant (nous sommes arrivés à 2h du matin!).
Nous étions 5, il y a un grand lit très confortable, l autre lit double est un canapé lit peu confortable et les autres lits sont des petits lits une place.
Nous le recommandons.
A gorgeous, large apartment an easy walk to everything you need. Beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Easily accommodated two adults and a very busy three-year-old. We'll definitely be back. Thanks for everything Dirk!
My family stayed here for the NYC Marathon weekend and it was the perfect place. It had everything we needed and great location close to the park (very convenient for the finish line of the marathon!). I would highly reccommend staying here! We also received some delicious muffins! Thank you Dirk for your hospitality.
Superbe logement, très bien placé et parfaitement équipé.
Je le recommande vivement.
I shared this great apartment with my business partner and his wife & kid. It was just perfect. It is much larger than any other place I've stayed in NY, and the extra rooms downstairs were perfect for the little one to stay. It really worked as a 3 bedroom for us.
The hosts we re accommodating, quick to respond, and very thoughtful. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
We had a wonderful time in NYC much thanks to Dirk and his wife. The apartment was wonderful. Very clean and stylish. They were very helpful and answered many questions and always with a very fast respond time. We stayed 5 adults and 1 child of 4 without any problems. They apartment had everything that you need and there is a grocery store close by on the corner of the street.
I can very much recommend this rental.
Absolutely gorgeous apartment located in a very cozy part of the busiest city in the world. The apartment is very spacious (especially considering the fact that you're in New York), and the kitchen and living rooms are amazing. If you like to cook, this is the place for you- the kitchen space is extremely generous, there is also an kitchen island with some benches. Dirk provided all the pots/pans/kitchenware, and the gorgeous dining table seats 6. Lastly, the patio in the back (see picture) was an amazing place to just unwind and relax. If you sit there for long enough, you will forget you are living in one of the most populous cities in the world. Oh, and if you decide that the patio isn't a good enough way to escape from the city, central park is only a 5 minute walk away. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a great time in NY!
Perfect UWS base for a group of five. Stylish apartment with outside space is ideal for young children.
Our family of four just enjoyed a fantastic (near month) stay at Dirk's lovely apartment. The apartment has been renovated with top quality materials and appliances. The location is unbeatable - a few blocks from Natural History Museum and subway, half a block from Central Park, and only a block away from our favorite breakfast restaurant, and a zillion other great restaurants. Dirk was absolutely lovely and efficient to deal with - as was Debra Jo who as our contact for anything we needed. The space, while only being "2 bedroom" could clearly cater for more. We only used the top floor, and rarely went to the basement level, but it was great to stretch out into and not feel cluttered. Thanks for Dirk and Debra Jo for our lovely stay.
What a place to stay for a family in NYC! This apartment was amazing for the 5 of us, it is more like a 4 bedroom apartment rather than 2.5, as there is so much space over the 2 floors. The best things about it include the amazing interior design and furnishings, the size of the space and the proximity to Central Park that is no more than 100 yards away (the subway is about 200 yards away). The apartment also has a garden and a BBQ grill which is remarkable considering the location.
My only slight worry was the stairs that were quite steep for my 2 year old but that didn't matter as we put a sofa in front of them so he couldn't access them.
Our hosts, Dirk and his family and Debra Jo were amazing. They left us some cookies which my wife and kids loved and made us feel really welcome. They even lent us a wide variety of toys and scooters to play with and my daughter ended up playing with our host's kids. We had the best time in New York, and so much thanks is due to the amazing hospitality and apartment that our hosts let us stay in. Thank you guys.
