Spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, 3 minutes from Union Square - sleeps 4/6.
Centrally located and stylish, this modern spacious 2 bedroom apartment 2 bathroom is just 3 minutes from Union Square and 6 minutes from 42nd Street. Convenience wrapped in cosmopolitan comfort....
It is located on the 26th floor of an historic, 24 hour doorman controlled building and has been beautifully restored and renovated, today boasting history, luxury and beauty - all with great accessibility. Convenient to most parts of the city, there are 7 train stations within three blocks of the apartment, the closest train is only 2 blocks away a...t the Brooklyn Bridge, City Hall station on Centre Street.
The apartment sleeps up to 6, in 2 large doubles and a sleeper sofa that pulls out to a double-sized bed.

The tasteful furnishings are just right; the owner has decorated the apartment with very high quality and well-thought out pieces for a most accommodating experience.
The apartment has high speed internet with wi-fi access. There is a phone available for guests' use - domestic (US only) calls.
After walking down a long hallway, the main part of the apartment is entered into the living room (19ft x 9ft9, 5.8m x 3m). This long room has 3 massive windows at the front, all looking out at the impressive skyline of the city. Another historic building, the Woolworth Building, is just a stone's throw away and beautifully framed by your living room window! (Picture left.)
Comfortable seating is ample, with a very large leather sofa (seats 4), a leather loveseat (that pulls out to a full sized double) and two ottomans that can be used for storage, seating, or occasional tables. Across from this sitting area there is an extra large, high definition, flat screen television (42") with cable channels.
At the front of the room, pleasantly lit by the wall of windows, is the dining area - complete with a big oval wooden table and 4 chairs.
Next to the dining area is the modern kitchen, handsomely designed with granite countertops, white cabinets and one side opened up with a clever peek-through counter.
It is outfitted with all of the newest appliances: a fridge/freezer, gas oven, range, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, and espresso machine - a bonus for those latte lovers!
Behind the living space, at the back of the apartment, are the bedrooms. On the left is the first bedroom (12ft9 x 11ft3, 3.9m x 3.4m). With a large double bed (80"x60"), this room is well insulated and faces no traffic, so it is nice and quiet for a good night's sleep! There is a full closet available for storage, as well as a night table and reading lamp.
The master bedroom (15ft9 x 12 ft, 4.8m x 3.7m) is to the right of the first bedroom, tucked at the back corner of the apartment. This pleasant room has an extra large, king sized, double bed (80" x 76") with 2 side tables and reading lamps, as well as a flat-screen television across from the bed. For storage options there is a large chest of drawers and a full closet available. This room has a full en-suite bathroom with wash basin, full-sized bathtub with a deluxe showerhead that can be used overhead or as a handheld and loo.
The second bathroom also has a wash basin, full-sized bathtub with handheld/overhead shower and loo.
This convenient apartment is perfect for everyone! Centrally located, it's close to the attractions of midtown without the suffering from the usual city hubbub, just 2 stops on the train from Grand Central and just as convenient to downtown - 1 stop from 14th Street, Union Square.
In your own neighborhood you can take a 10 minute stroll to the historic South Street Seaport district and check out the shops, restaurants, museums and scenery. Or, for a real New York experience, take a 5 minute walk to the Brooklyn Bridge and walk across - finish up on the other side at the famed River Café for a 4 star meal and a 6 star view.
Spacious and comfortable home base for NYC tourists

This apartment was a comfortable home base for 4 women travelers. Loved having 2 bathrooms, and the kitchen was nice for eating breakfast before we headed out, or leftovers after a long day of walking. From the 26th floor, we had a birds eye view of the WTC site and the construction going on there. The apartment is nothing fancy, but it was clean, light, quiet and close to the subway. The neighborhood isn't particularly charming, (not a lot of cafes and shops right there) but we felt safe and did a lot of walking in the area. When one of the heaters went out, it was fixed that very day and Erin was very responsive if we had questions.

This was the first time we had done a vacation rental. The space and convenience for NYC were beyond compare. Will be doing many more vacation rentals in future travel...Great Value. Coach House Rental was a very professional agency to deal with, they have a great team! Would definitely use them again to travel in all the cities they serve!
Great experience, wonderful location, quite area.

The apparment was great, it had everything one needs. The bedrooms are large, and the views great.The apparment is better suited for 4 people that for 6. The sleeper couch may need some tlc. Surrounding our area, there are many subways, that take you anywhere in Manhattan, and that is a plus. No need to walk far. The area around the apparment is very quite, and not noisy at all. We found it a great place to stay.

My girlfriend and I have been to NYC many times and stayed everywhere. This location and unit was amazing. 3 Train stations , every single train line and beautiful views. Wtc and Century 21 shopping. Quiet and safe neighbourhood with the close proximity to Canal St for late night eating makes this place comfortable, cozy, safe, accessible and clean. Also the unit itself was huge. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Our apartment was wonderful, in the finest Coach House tradition. We had 5 adults and the apartment was very spacious. The view was grand, as we looked down over St Paul's Chapel and the World Trade Center site. A block walk took us to 3 different subway stops. This is our second experience with Coach House and I can't wait to use them again. Thanks for an amazing visit to New York.

We had enjoyed the facility in which we had chosen and rented the apartment from Vacation Rental and the nice local support we had received.
The flat is located in a historical building, which is refurnished but keeping the charm of original construction. It is comfortable, spacious and has an astonish view around the city. The location is very convenient, close to many metro lines, although it is now affected by the permanent noise of the WTC developments.
Vacation Rental helped us in enjoying a very nice time in NYC!
