We had a lovely stay in a West Townhouse studio apartment. The bedroom and bathroom were quite spacious; the galley kitchen small but perfectly adequate for our minimal needs. Monica was very helpful and gracious. The location is excellent, with good proximity to subway lines, shops, restaurants, grocery market, Central Park, museums, etc. Booking is requested well in advance and...

Our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers stayed at the West Townhouse for 8 nights in December and we would highly recommend this accommodation. We stayed in 2 adjoining apartments which provided sufficient room for us all. It was fabulous for a number of reasons including the proximity to 2 subway stations that take you anywhere in Manhatten, convenience...

We enjoyed our one week visit of NYC very much because we felt so much at home at the West Townhouse. Its location is perfect, close to shops, restaurants and Central park and yet very quiet. Beautiful rooms, charming furniture, extremely clean and neat - we would say "sehr gemütlich". Monica&Larry are wonderful hosts and gave us great advice.

This is a fantastic place. We as a European family stayed here during our first visit to NY. It has it all: Great location in a safe residential area, apartments in which you really feel at home, the Central Park around the corner. For us it was also great to have both the Natural History Museum as well as the...

My partner and myself stayed with Monica for 11 days in October ! What a beautiful brownstone apartment. We stayed in apartment 1, and it was a perfect size for the two of us. It was very clean, and quiet for NYC! Monica was extremely helpful throughout the whole booking process and offered her help whilst we were staying there!...

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at Monica and Larry's apartment. We had about 9 nights in the apartment and I can't speak highly enough about how helpful Monica was with regards to suggestions (dining, places to visit, transportation) and answering any questions we had during our time in NYC. It was certainly a highlight of our trip...

1st time New York, from the first point of contact Monica and Larry were fantastic, prompt replies and info . The Town house is in a great area, the restaurants were close by, so much to choose from, close to Subway, we also walked along the river into town, very pleasant. Monica and Larry were great hosts, nothing too much...

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
