Your private walled garden is perfect place for relaxing with your morning cup of coffee or your evening glass of wine. Watch the squirrels scamper and hear the birds singing in the trees as you put your feet up and wind down.
Surprisingly this tranquil oasis exists right in central Manhattan on a beautiful tree lined residential block at East 30th Street and Park Avenue with convenient access to just about all you want to see and do.
Wander inside your apartment and enjoy the charm of exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a fireplace and original oil paintings. The large living room offers 2 matching sofas in classic muted colours. A cushioned single Bahama bed is convenient for another guest and there are 2 fold-out chairs that open into 2 single beds if needed..
A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room & bedroom. The en suite modern tiled bathroom has a small tub with shower, a built-in vanity for the sink & wrap-around mirrors.
The dining area with cushioned window seat overlooks the peaceful garden. If you don't feel like cooking, just order in from the many nearby restaurants or have the grocery stores deliver.
The apartment is on the garden floor in the back and is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. You'll find many extra modern details such as high hat lights in all of the rooms, a security buzzer to open the front doors and quality windows and doors.
Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens, a fluffy feather duvet and lots of pillows. There's plenty of room for all of your clothes and shopping sprees in a wall of custom fitted closets.
Do you need more space. An adjacent 2 room duplex suite is available for larger groups. The New York sized (ie:smallish) for 10 downstairs room is furnished as a library with a double innerspring sofa bed for 2 guests. There are private stairs in this room leading to a very spacious bedroom on the first floor. There are 2 single beds, which can be made up into a king size bed if you prefer, and a chair bed that opens into a small single bed. The suite has a marble half bathroom with a sink and a toilet.
About me: Having guests is a lovely way to meet people from around the world. My main home is in Florida, but I come to NYC as often as possible. It is rewarding to share my knowledge of insider places with my guests. I wrote a book for my guests, 'How to Live Like a Real New Yorker in our Neighborhood'. It gives suggestions about where to eat in all price ranges, museums, attractions, grocery shopping, luxury shopping, discount shopping, how to take the bus and subway, how to find your way around the city and lots more.
I also write a blog about NYC with posts about restaurants, attractions, How to get Theater tickets and other Tips for Travelers. Just "like" me on facebook to read it: facebook.com/VacationRentalsInNYC or if you are not on facebook, please e-mail me for the link. You don't have to stay here to read it.
I hope that I can inspire you to love NYC as as much as I do.
