Apartment 3d at 710 Amsterdam Avenue (94th Street) is an 800 sf, two-bedroom, 1-bathroom, furnished apartment avaiable for your short (3+ nights), medium (several weeks) or long-term stay (several months to a year). 3d was gut-renovated in the summer of 2008, using very high-quality finishes such as cherry-wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, Italian stone tile, and stone countertops. It is also tastefully furnished with high-quality furniture and linens and equipment.

Additional notes from owner
The rates above already include all taxes and any fees. I usually offer a 10-20% discount off of the above fees if your booking dates are less than 30 days out. Starting in May 2011, New York State has outlawed stays of less than 30 days, so bookings must be for at least 30 days; however, you may include a termination option should you choose to stay less than 30 days after your arrival, subject to a $10 termination fee.
Holiday bookings are more expensive, generally from $500-$600 per night depending on holiday and length of stay. There may be a minimum stay requirement (4 or 5 days) during holidays also.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Excelente Departamento, ubicación y distribución.!
El departamento ofrecido por Khris, cumplió totalmente nuestras expectativas, somos una familia de 7 personas, viajamos con mi marido y mis 5 hijos (3 adolescentes y 2 pequeños). El departamento tenía todas las comodidades para hacer de una una estadía de 20 días la mejor experiencia. La cocina completísima, un baño acorde al grupo, dos dormitorios, no de tamaños grandes pero muy cómodos por lo demás y un sofá cama en el living tamaño king comodísimo. Además su ubicación...metro a 1 cuadra con línea express, a 2 cuadras de central park, con excelentes restaurantes en la misma cuadra, especialmente PIO PIO (comida peruana), laundry, un exquisito Famiglia...genial, Todo Espectacular!!, fueron unas vacaciones inolvidables, recomendable 100%.!!! El depto contiguo, lo arrendó mi hermana, genial opción cuando viaja un grupo familiar grande.!!
Great location, good value for family accommodations
This apartment is in a great location on the upper west side, within short walking distance to subway and lots of great restaurants. By the way, the Peruvian place on the corner (Pio Pio) is excellent!
We had 5 people in the apartment, including 2 kids and mother-in-law. With only one bathroom, for us it would have been a challenge with a larger group. The apartment is well equipped and clean. Our only complaint would be the street noise in the front bedroom, I really couldn't have imagined sleeping without ear plugs (bring them, it's New York City coupled with single pane windows :-).
Khris was very easy to deal with and very responsive. I had to get some work done during the visit so the wifi was very convenient. Overall, a good value for a family or group of friends traveling together. It's so nice to have a "home" to return to after a long day of sight seeing!
Response from Khristopher Reina - 11/29/2012
Thank you for the positive review. And I do plan on installing new windows in all of my apartments by the summer of 2013, mostly for the reduction in heat loss and A/C loss, but a reduction in street noise in the apartment will also be a benefit.
Great location and even better management
Great location for a visit tO New York City
We found this rental after having a reservation being cancelled by another company, so we were a little worried. Well we couldn't have found a better place to stay! It was a good value in an excellent location with great management. It is only 2 blocks west of Central Park and one block from a subway station. The area was not touristy at all being a residential neighborhood with shopping and good restaurants. The renovation was very well done and everything was in great shape. Kris was very nice and helpful. We arrived early which he handled well. I would definitely rent this unit again.
Emplacement parfait, tout près de très bons resto, et près des épiceries. Le quartier est agréable et tranquille, près des métro. Le manager Krsi nous a donné de bons conseils pour visiter NY. Nous étions 5 et nous avons assez de place.
Aucun point négatif!
Perfect for families - privacy, comfort, location, affordability
This was our first time using a vacation rental instead of a hotel so I was not sure what to expect and was a little uneasy about the whole thing. Luckily, the experience was exactly as it is portrayed in the listing and reviews from start to finish. We stayed in apartment 2d and enjoyed having enough space and privacy for all of us, two adults and three teens!
The apartment looks just like in the pictures. It is spacious, clean, comfortable and has almost everything you need to settle in. Beds and pillows are super comfy and the linens were clean and in good condition. The couch is easy to convert into a bed. There is an additional inflatable bed which we did not use but looks easy to inflate.The apartment is above a restaurant but you'd never know it - no food smells and very little street noise.
Khris was quick to reply to emails and his staff were helpful during our check-in and check out. We got in a little early and they let us store our bags in the office while we went to lunch. On check-out day they printed our boarding passes. Nice that we did not have to send a deposit ahead of time and that we got to see the apartment before paying. Great to have free wifi!
The neighborhood is residential - lots of restaurants, groceries, delis and other shops. Our teen girls liked the freedom to walk around on their own. Upper Central Park is just a few blocks away. The 1,2, and 3 subway lines are two blocks away and will get you anywhere in Manhattan quickly. Try the French coffee at Spices and Tease. Delicious. Get a smoothy or made-to-order fruit and veggie juice at TasteDiLite. Both on Broadway close to the subway.
A few tips:
- Browse through the apartment binder. It contains a ton of useful info about the apartment, neighborhood and city
- the kitchen is super and has all necessary equipment but we needed to buy basics like coffee filters, salt and pepper and olive oil for light cooking.
- the living room was a bit chilly at night however there are extra blankets in the sofa bed storage
- the light/fan switches in the bedrooms seem to be on timers or perhaps we pressed the wrong buttons. Fans went on at night unexpectedly.
- walls between the two bedrooms are a bit thin so we heard our girls giggling late into the night
- white walls in bedrooms and bathroom could use a fresh coat of paint, not a deal breaker but something we all noticed
- we discovered that we could not flag down a cab for 5 people so had to schedule a private car to take us to LaGuardia. It was only a 20 minute drive and $80 but worth the cost!
We definitely recommend this apartment and will consider staying here again!
Stayed in apt 3C for 5 nights in May 2011 along with 2 friends. After looking at many properties online I found this one and Khris was very helpful with my enquiries & very prompt in responding. Upon arrival his staff member Micheal met me at the apt. & gave me a little tour of the neighbourhood. Felt very safe and there were many restaurants, shops in the vicinity. Subway was 1 block away and only 5 minutes to Times Sq. on the Express line. Central Park just a few blocks as away as well. Apt. was newly refurbished with modern applicances. Just be prepared for squeaky wooden floors, that was the only complaint but beyond anyone's control. I would definately recommend this apt. & would stay here again in the future. Also a reminder there is no elevator for those who do not like stairs.New York City was fabulous and i cannot wait to go back! Sorry it took me so long to write a review since my trip! For anyone taking the Super Shuttle from the airport to the property be prepared for a 3 hour journey with many stops along the way. Avoid the hassle & take a cab for the extra money it is worth it over 3 hours on a shuttle bus!
Response from Khristopher Reina - 03/01/2012
Thanks for the review Trish. I absolutely agree with her about the Super Shuttle. The cabs in NYC are actually quite affordable. If you are really tight on cash and coming in from Newark (EWR) or JFK, and if you don't have a lot of heavy luggage, and if there aren't that many of you, then the cheapest option is the subway/train/airtrain. But even then, it is so much more convenient and not a lot more money to take a cab. Coming and going from the airport is the only time you will have to take a cab, because once you are at 710 Amsterdam, everything is a short subway or walk away.
Our family of four stayed in apartment 3C, owned and managed by Khris for 2 wonderful weeks in late June early July. We found the apartment on the internet and were taken by both the location which is close to Central Park and Broadway with excellent transport options, and the responsiveness of Khris to our various queries. The apartment was well appointed and clean. We found the bedrooms were very comfortable and our two children enjoyed the free wifi - teenagers and facebook...need I say more?
There is a Wholefoods supermarket nearby and numerous food options in amsterdam avenue. The neighbourhood was very friendly and we enjoyed strolling through Central Park, if you can do so in the early evening and watch the fireflies - magic!
We were most impressed by the service that Khris offered - he would respond to our queries immediately, and given the time difference between australia and NYC that is impressive. Corey met us at the door and ensured we were settled and provided an overview of the neighbourhood. When we left we forgot our jackets - Khris kindly offered to ship them to New Orleans.
Thank you for a wonderful visit to New York.
Great place to stay
We stayed at the apartment with 5 people. In short: the apartment has everything you need. Comfortable beds, a nice bathroom, kitchen with everything you need, wifi, ...
It was the first time we rented an apartment. We did a long search on the internet, but it became rapidly clear that this one was the best value for money. The location and neighborhood are perfect. The subway is only one block away. There are shops and restaurants close by.
Khris was very friendly. He always gave a quick reply to our e-mails and he recommended a lot of restaurants and bars. If I go back to New York (more a certainty than a possibility), I would definitely stay at this place again.
Excellent First Experience with a Vacation Rental
We hadn't ever tried a vacation rental before and this was a great experience. We had 5 in our party and I was glad to know this was only 1 flight of stairs up. We didn't have any trouble finding the location. Khris met us and showed us the apt and around the neighborhood and patiently waited while we all grabbed some quick groceries for the next morning. He gave us helpful hints about getting around and getting tickets for shows and it was nice to know we could have probably called and asked him anything! :-)
The apt was comfy and clean. It had pretty much anything we needed, including a wine bottle opener! The location was great; we felt safe and found our way around easily from this vantage point. The best part was that it saved us a lot of money compared to renting two hotel rooms for the same time! It was nice that we could all be together at night, to chat and snack.
We were all very happy with our stay and would highly recommend Khris and his apt.
After spending months online looking for a rental we finally found this apartment and it was a pleasant experience from contacting Kris about the apartment to checking out! We are a group of females from the UK, USa, and Sweden so it was important that we found a place that was affordable and accomidating. When we arrived at the apartment Kris was there waiting for us, he showed us the apartment, gave suggestions on where to go and even gave us a tour of the neighborhood! The location is great, right on amsterdam avenue, central park is nearby and the subway is half a block away. It is a very cozy place with comfortable beds, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. We didn't encounter any problems during our stay, we only wish that we could've stayed longer!! I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to avoid hotels and get out of the tourists traps and want to experience the real NYC!
St Joseph, MI
This was a great place to stay during our visit. Everything was in great shape, check in and out went very smooth. The location was perfect, lots of restaurants to choose from. The apartment met our needs perfectly. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room, beat hotel room by a mile! Would definitely recommend!
We were 5 people from Europe who stayed at the loft in July and it was beyond our expectations. Khris was great and quick with all the details before our stay. The loft is very neat with all amenities included. Location is perfect to experrience the real NYC living.
Great location, good value, safe secure.
We loved the apartment, and have to say that Kris was an excellent host, even taking us on a guided tour of his neighbourhood.
Could not have been any better.
Best New York Experience !!!
Staying at this apartment was like staying at a friends place! Forget ever staying in a hotel, I have stayed in a variety of places in NYC including the Plaza, but you can't beat the location of Khris's place on the Upper West Side, the neighborhood has the greatest restaurants, you can work it off by a nice jog in central park which is 2 blocks away, the fast subway stop is also 2 blocks away. If Time Square is your thing, it is 2 stops on the subway!!!
You just can't beat having 2 bdrms, a living rm/dining rm and a kitchen, location. The beds were sooo comfortable we had to set alarms to make sure we didn't sleep in, and having a place to have a quick breakfast from the market before heading out for the day was great. And also keep in mind you don't have all the noise of Time Square or Midtown, or a hotel for that matter, your neighbors are yearlong tenants. We started as 3 girlfriends, and a couple of days later were joined by 2 more, there was still plenty of space. Imagine what you would pay at a hotel in NYC that would accommodate 3-5 people comfortably! Now divide the cost of Khris's place by 5! More money to spend on food and shopping in NYC.
When we arrived Khris met us at the door, gave us a tour of the neighborhood, showed us where to get the best coffee, some groceries, took us to the subway & showed us the best routes to take, took us to the entrance to Central Park. But, it didn't stop there, Khris made himself available all the time, we would text him from where ever we were in the city and he would suggest places to eat, drink, listen to live music, and they were places the locals went. I am a totally foodie, and Khris was right on, we ate the greatest Peruvian (which happened to be on the same block as the apartment), amazing vietnamese, thai, pizza, gelato, seafood, you name it, Khris reccommended and it was fantastic.
Thanks Khris for making our girls trip so fantastic and memorable, we all want to come back soon!!
This place is just right.
We were looking for a place on the Upper West Side as kind of a "push off" location for easy access to the park, and then Uptown and Midtown and this fit the bill. The place is roomy (for NY standards) and we didn't feel like we were tripping over each other, which was nice. The location was perfect, near two grocery stores and very close to the park for morning runs. Kris was the perfect host, there when we needed him but definitely didn't hover. The front bedroom can be a little noisy, but it's on the 2nd floor and faces the street so it wasn't too surprising. Really, you can't do much better than this place.
Great apartment and location
We were a group of 6 (two families) and couldn't believe how convenient the apartment was for the subway, restaurants, museums and markets. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It was so nice to be able to relax after a long day of sightseeing and not be cramped in a hotel room. Khris was very helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage in the morning so that we could go to a matinee show, even though check-in was not supposed to be until 3PM. We loved being able to walk to the Natural History Museum (10 minutes) and Central Park. Getting all the way to Battery Park took only 20 minutes, and only about 10 minutes to Yankee Stadium. There were so many restaurants around the apartment that were very good. The area is a residential one without many tourists which was really nice. The kids (10, 11, 12) were able to see what it is like to live in NYC and everyone had a great time. We would definitely want to stay here again.
A happy customer
Great upper west side location
We rented a two bedroom apartment from Khris Reina twice and had a great experience both times. The apartment is very clean and nicely furnished. The beds are especially comfortable. The location is excellent close to subway, starbucks, whole foods and good restaurants including an Italian just two blocks south on Amsterdam. Khris and his staff are very dependable and are ready for you when you arrive. Makes for a great NYC getaway.

First time NY Apt renter - great experience
Khris was fantastic to work during the entire renting process. He's very down to earth, easy going, and friendly. He's very responsive to emails and easy to work with. Upon our arrival he gave us a quick walking tour of the neighborhood which was great. The apt was clean, well supplied, and everything functioned properly. The location is one block from the subway (express stop), close to grocery stores, drug stores, and restaurants. Only negative is a little street noise, but hey, its New York, you get use to it.
Fashion Business Client
Home Away from Home
We had a 5 night stay at apartment 3D in late February. We had 3 people with us and were there over a business trip. Khris was waiting there for our arrival even though it was later than most business hours, and the place looked even better than the pictures! Overall it was felt exactly like being at home as even the cabinets are stocked with complimentaries, the beds comfortable (it was hard to get my husband to leave the apartment to go out in the city most days!)and if necessary it would have been a suitable place to entertain clients for small meetings. The only thing that was not 100% perfect was my husband having to make this lazy woman walk up stairs every night. Call it my personal gym. =)
This was a great place... close to subways, restaurants. Plenty of room. We had an awesome time and appreciated Khris . He took us on a short tour to familiarize ourselves with the area, and was available to us throughout the trip. I highly recommend this spot.

Autumn in New York
My husband and I wanted to stay somewhere other than a hotel while in NY,
to get the "real feel" of NY life, and this apt was perfect. Lots of great
restaurants nearby, the main subway one block away, three blocks for a run in
Central Park, and a Whole Foods a block away so we could cook what we
wanted, instead of depending on restaurants for every meal.
The apartment was clean and orderly, the beds were comfortable, and the
bathroom was in excellent shape and a good size. Khris was very helpful, and
allowed another person to join us for a few days. Honestly, I can't think
of any down side!!
