“Fantastic apartment, awesome location - a home away from home”
This was our first time visit to New York and we wanted to have a magical time especially over Christmas. The minute we walked through the apartment door, we felt safe and comfortable. A beautiful welcome awaited us with delicious goodies and wine, a lovely touch. My husband and I and our two sons had plenty of room to move around and not get in each other's way. The boys said that the pull out bed was the most comfortable that they had ever slept on and I just loved the bedroom. Every facility was terrific from the well equipped kitchen to the bathroom and we were lucky enough to catch up with Marcia who gave wonderful advice and restaurant recommendations - I only wish we had more time to explore all the suggestions! Marcia was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her which we really appreciated. The location was brilliant and we took advantage of the delicious restaurants and cafes nearby, not to mention the shopping at some of the fantastic designer stores. The subway was also close by and we celebrated NYE at Central Park which was only a block away. I have not stopped talking to our friends and family about this apartment and have recommended it to all. I can't wait to visit NY again and will definitely stay here.
“A Home away From Home”
We (a family of 4) stayed at the apartment from the 26th of March to the 6th of april. We made all the arrangements and bookings online with Marcia with no difficulties and arrival at JFK and getting to the apartment was a breeze. The apartment itself is perfectly located a stones throw from Central Park and near the subway stations. The location was truly perfect for us - quiet but close enough to the downtown hustle and excitement. The apartment was pretty well appointed and with a supermarket round the corner - having breakfast or dinner at home was a viable option. The sofa bed was of a good size and comfortable. The bedroom had a queen sized double bed that was extremely comfortable. No views to talk about - but hey - this is Manhattan ! Hot water was available round the clock and the water pressure was good. The pull - up pin to direct water from the bath faucet to the shower was extremely stiff and was a minor irritation. Maria was an experience. She has a huge personality and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about some of the other girls that work in her office. The laundry facilities are in the basement - and not recommended for anyone with claustrophobia. Overall the apartment worked out very well for us and we would certainly recommend it.
From the time Marcia opens the door for you, you are in for a treat, we recently had a wonderful stay in this Upper east side apartment, feeling very much like real New Yorkers. The apartment is clean and comfortable and comes equipped with a kitchen that enables you to cook meals if you choose to or there are some nice restaurants in Lexington ave, especially Mezza Luna which came recommend by Marcia. The apartment is conveniently located near the sub way and is close to fabulous central park. Thank you Marcia for being so generous with your time and responsive to our queries. We look forward to sharing in yours hospitality when we come to New York again. Marcia was very helpful
“Great apt, neighbourhood and Marcia's a wonder”
Hi all. I never usually write reveiws but we had such a good stay I thought I had to this time. We stayed in apt 3B from 18 June to 3 July. it looks just like the photos (which is not always the case!). The apt is nice in a great block (a lot of which on lower floors seem to be Doctors' rooms - so pretty quiet. The kitchen is simple but completely serviceable. Everything including the bathroom is clean. The neighbourhood is really nice (very genteel) with great architecture and shops. There is a funky italian cafe on E73rd one block over towards the Park and plenty of good restaurants over on Lexington. If you want more culture the Frick is only about 2 blocks away and you are also right next to the Park. But one of the biggest assets the place has is Marcia. Whilst NYC was hellishly hot in this time, Marcia did everything to make our stay as 'cool' as possible. Which was not easy with 2 adults and 2 small children. She answered all of my many! emails with a smile. No detail was too small and everything she said she would do she did. The combination of this apt and Marcia are a real winner if you want a relaxed stay on the East Side. Highly recommended Marco PS Plus you are very close to good hospitals if you need them (as I did for our kids)
Stayed in this great apartment a few months ago. I am so bad that I did not review it earlier! A lot of things happened after my fab trip to NY. An amazing apartment and Marcia and her associates are so hospitable, honest and reliable that I can not begin to describe our stay near Central Park.. I shall try, very briefly.Great location for 3 people. Moi, my adult daugher, and 20 month granddaughter. A girls holiday from australia. Aparment for 2 groups who may need a bit of time apart worked really well. I loved the master bedroom, bed so comfortable. Studio bed was fine for daughter and baby. Kitchen a blessing. for a young family. Location,location,location. 5 minutes from Central Park. My granddaughter and I could not stay away from it and our visits early in the morning I will never forget . Closeby treasures abounding to stroll by and breath it all in. subway about 8 minutes away, a brisk flat walk. Taxis were very cheap compared to aus and we often used due to convince and price. We walked and walked a lot and shopped until we dropped. As mentioned before Marcia is an outstanding host and special person who has a wealth of local info and genuine kindness and friendship that neither of the 3 girls from downunder will never forget.
My husband and I were very happy with this apt, it was in a super location, we loved the neighborhood right by Central Park, It was very comfortable and we will definitely stay again if in New York! Marcia was fantastic and gave us lots of info about places to go that were close that was very helpful, Had a great week!
“Perfect stay in NYC”
My friend and I traveled from Melbourne, Australia to New York for Christmas 2011 and New Years. Having been to New York before, I knew how difficult it would be to find decent accommodation during this period, so was very pleased to find this apartment. It was in a perfect location, with the best shopping right on the doorstep, beautiful Central Park just minutes away, close to the train, and surrounded by great restaurants, cafes and grocery stores. The apartment itself was just lovely and a perfect size. It was very clean and neat and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. It really was a home-away-from-home. Marcia was incredibly helpful, providing information on the best places to go, and the personal service really added an extra element to our holiday. Thanks so much for letting us stay and if I am ever back in New York it will certainly be my first preference for a place to stay!
Response from the owner Hi Stephanie, It was a real pleasure having you stay with us. You will be always welcome to our home here in NYC. Thanks for the warm words and wonderful review. Marcia
We recently visisted NYC for a long weekend with our two children (Ages 7 & 10). Having never been before, we weren't exactly sure where to stay from both a location and accomodation perspective. I will have to say that we absolutely made the right choice as this apartment was Perfect!!! It is ideally located in a quiet high end neighborhood that is one block from Central Park and within walking distance to various museums, restaraunts and all the shopping your feet and wallet can handle. The accomodation / ammenities were exactly as advertised and was more than enough space for our family (we were so happy not to be in a typical small NYC hotel). Lastly, I can not say enough about the hospitality and service that Marcia provided to us. Upon arrival to the apartment my wife and I were met with fresh cut flowers and a bottle of wine and she even had prepared special Halloween baskets for the kids (Nice Touch!!). In addition, she had prepared a list of family freindly activities and restaraunts that we used during the trip. The entire apartment was very clean and the internet worked perfectly. I am usually not a big fan of pull out sofa beds, but I will have to admit this one comfortable. When we go back to NYC, there is no doubt we will stay at this apartment again. Thank you again Marcia!
Response from the owner Hi Chris, Thank you very much for your kind words. It was very nice meeting you all and having you stay with us it was a truly pleasure. Hope see you soon. Regards to the family. Marcia
“Very good find”
Location was excellent - close to central park, subway, quiet street, quiet building. Spacious. Comfortable king sized bed. Had problems with internet access when we arrived but owner went out of her way to get us wifi access. Definitely recommended. Fresh flowers was a nice touch on arrival.
Response from the owner Thank you very much for the review. It was a pleasure accommodating you and your spouse . It is rare to find tenants as neat as you. My apartment was left as immaculate as when you arrived. High speed has problems with MAC, that's why we have WI-FI as well. Hope you stay with us again. Very soon. Marcia
“Very charming and elegant stay”
I stayed here with my family and we had a wonderful experience. The decor is very plush and beautiful making you not want to get out and do anything, however you can't be lazy because there are lots of fabulous restaurants in the neighborhood to try and Central Park is 2 blocks away. I love to cook and there is a spacious kitchen and dining area which made my stay even more fantastic. When I'm in NY I will definitely be staying here again.
