    The owners are always available to answer questions and make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. The townhouse was impeccably clean and everything was in excellent working condition. The location is perfect for museums and Central Park. The neighborhood is easily accessible to great shopping and boutique establishments. We would highly recommend this townhouse to anyone and hope to stay there again in the future! 25 April 2016 - 11:02:00

    We are so happy that we found this place. My husband, myself and our four kids (14, 12, 10 and 9) had such a great experience. We stayed in the Grande White Loft, which was perfect for us. Each child had his/her own plush bed and my husband and I had a separate room with an amazingly comfortable bed. We spent the first day walking around the neighborhood, then walking to some tourist sights and going to great restaurants within a few blocks of this residence. The next day we explored Central Park, which is a few feet away, and we walked to a few museums. We were so appreciative that Claudio saved us a FREE parking spot right outside the door. We didn't have to touch the car again for our entire stay, nor did we have to pay for NYC parking overnight! Julia and Claudio were such great hosts and the apartment had everything that we needed. We are looking forward to another chance to stay in this amazing residence that made us feel as though we were true Manhattanites! 11 January 2016 - 13:52:00

    Perfect Place to Stay in NYC! We are from DC and needed to be in the city for about a week on business. We wanted a short term rental that allowed a small family and nanny to live comfortably in a space more comfortable than a NYC hotel (translate more sq footage), that was just as comfortable as living at home and with a great location for all family members (i.e. parents on business, 11month old child and nanny). More importantly, we were also bringing a young child, we wanted to find a young-child friendly accommodation that could also reduce the number of baby items we needed to bring, i.e. high chair, crib, etc. Julias 5th Avenue Townhouse exceeded our needs in every way. The house is located in the upper east side within easy walking distance to the Childrens play area at Central Park and the Museums. It is close to the 6 metro line and of course taxis /Uber. Its a quiet and very safe location with beautiful townhomes, consulates and high end hotels for neighbors. We stayed in the Deluxe European Suite which was beautifully appointed and so very comfortable for all four of us. The Suite got a lot of natural light during the day even in November. The house is young children friendly and Julia provided whatever was necessary to make our stay comfortable including a crib and high chair. The kitchen had everything we needed (dishware, flatware, cookware, small appliances) for our stay. Julia provided information on grocery stores within easy walking distance, grocery stores that delivered, and even offered to pick up any grocery that we needed to start our stay. The main living area was spacious and had comfortable pull out beds. The bedroom included a king bed and was still roomy with plenty of closet space. The bathroom was also just as well appointed. There is an elevator as well that enabled easy access to our guest rooms on the 3rd floor. A huge perk during our stay were the extra services included in our daily rate that are not typical in vacation rentals, such as daily housekeeping, personal laundry service, grocery pick up. I dont need to convey the benefits of daily laundry to travelers with your children! We look forward to returning to NYC and staying with Julia and her family again. She takes such pride and enjoyment in hosting guests in her home. It was a home away from home but so much more! Definitely consider 5th Ave Townhouse for your next stay in NYC! 10 January 2016 - 12:30:01

    This is a great spot, only a half block from Central Park. The apartment is beautifully maintained and very comfortable with everything that we could want. We felt especially lucky because the owner lives in the building and was available when we arrived to show us around and make recommendations. My husband and I would certainly recommend this apartment. 15 October 2016 - 21:45:00

    A little gem.... quiet and beautiful location. From first contact with owner when booking we realized we where in good hands. Great information given before and during stay, nothing was too much trouble. Apartment was just was as pictured online, Extremely clean, with great daily mad service. We recommend to anyone, a great quite location. Will be back when we next visit the city. 19 June 2016 - 21:09:20

    We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 2 childs + nanny) from Brussels and stayed in this wonderful townhouse just off Central Park for overall 9 nights this April. We occupied the Deluxe European Suite, which was perfect for our needs and could comfortably sleep all of us. The suite being situated at the back of the house facing the courtyard, it was very quiet and we could hear the birds sing throughout our stay. The suite was very well equipped with all amenities necessary for a family of 5 including a 3 year old (cot & child seat). Housekeeping was daily and included free laundry. But the real advantage of the 5th Avenue Townhouse is the location! Only a few steps away from Central Park in a very quite street, just at entry gate to the Park. On top of that a wonderful playground is right at the entrance too. Julia and her husband were always available and very efficient in helping and providing any information to us. What appeared to be a rather complicated process at the beginning, the fact that Julia wants to personally speak with all her potential guests, is really an advantage in the end, as it creates the basis for a wonderful stay by addressing all relevant questions upstream. For the rest the reservation process was very efficient and streamlined. We can only warmly recommend this location! Teresa & Domink & Camila & Maximilian 29 April 2016 - 08:30:08

    Three of us stayed in the European Suite for the New Year vacation stay in Manhattan. I must say, this was a terrific experience. Julia is an incredible host and made every aspect of our booking, stay and checkout so easy and comfortable. The entire townhouse is gorgeous and immaculate and has everything you need for a great stay. Beautiful space with attention to detailFull kitchen and dining area, coffee/french pressAll three of us felt as if we had the comforts of home plus more. Rather than a hotel room,we wanted more space to move about in for our stay and this suite was more than enough room for 3. The apartment was bright, sunny, airy and the views are pretty. Honestly, if your looking for an alternative to hotels this is the place! I would recommend this over any hotel and we have stayed in many in NYC. Also, location,location,location. Beautiful street,beautiful townhouse right by Central Park. Thank you Julia! 03 January 2017 - 02:37:28

    I spent three nights in the Deluxe European Suite with a friend and my newborn so that I could attend a work conference (I am a corporate attorney at a large international firm). The Suite was spacious, spotless, comfortable and perfect for my purposes. The access to Central Park was invaluable, especially with a child, and it was so helpful to have a full kitchen and a crib in premises. The suite is very safe and the home is in a great neighborhood for shopping/walking. Julia was a delight - helpful and forthcoming - and let me view all the units. I will be back - next time with the whole family - whenever I need to be in the city for work or pleasure! 01 October 2016 - 19:32:29

    I was celebrating a very special birthday, so because of my connection to the city, my daughter and I decided we would like to make a visit to New York City. Julia's townhouse sounded perfect and, indeed, it was. The location is perfect ! We stayed in the Deluxe European flat which was just as described. Everything one would want is there. It is clean, comfortable and lovely. It was a perfect place to come home to after a day visiting museums and the nearby park. Julia and her staff were very helpful, and her tips on restaurants and markets were "spot on". For me, it was a very special time. Both my daughter and I hope to return. 17 October 2016 - 14:18:00

    We are four retired women; sisters and long time friends who got the unexpected chance to spend some time together in New York this Spring! We traveled from Los Angeles, California and Portland, Oregon to Newark, New Jersey where we were graciously greeted by our driver Victor! Victor could not have been kinder or more welcoming as he drove us to Manhattan! We were greeted by Julia and Claudio the owners of this 5th Avenue Mansion. Our hosts were most attentive, never intrusive, and had covered every detail to make our stay so enjoyable. If we had any expectations they were exceeded. The Deluxe European Suite was stunning! Cleaned daily, filled with natural light, quiet, comfortable, spacious, beautifully appointed, the beds were perfect and yes this includes the two hide a beds! The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to enjoy a few meals in at the end of a long day. A wonderful home in a wonder filled neighborhood. A short walk to Central Park and a variety of restaurants and coffee shops. Our home away from home was one of the highlights of our exciting time in New York. A big thumbs up from four lucky ladies Highly recommend. 10 May 2017 - 18:25:00

    Our family stayed in this beautiful "loft" style apartment in a former mansion across from the park. The big beautiful windows provided tons of light in the comfy living room. The kitchen had everything we needed (though we only had breakfast there). Julia, the owner was thoughful and keen to provide us with every comfort. I had the opportunity to peek in on the other apartments available in the building and would recommend any one of them. All were lovely in their own way. We will never stay in a hotel again! 06 March 2013 - 02:29:55

    The location of this building speaks for it self, my kid could enjoy the park and I could walk around in a very pleasant neighborhood, full of nice restaurants, shops, markets. The owner gave me very useful tips that helped me go around. I stayed at the Balcony suite for 10 days. It was cozy and nice.The Decor reminded me of my grandparents house when I was younger, which was very nice,classic furniture, good natural light in the living room. The apartment was cleaned daily. The kitchen was small but well equipped. The room was comfortable and there was a good space for the cloths. The air condition was very good. I will certainly be back 19 August 2013 - 22:20:02

    Great location, and very quiet. Amenities great in this very spacious suite. Sunny window in the morning. Walkable to major attractions, including the MetMuseum, Carlyle piano bar, and numerous small restaurants on Madison. Blueline easily accessed for access to downtown restaurants and Broadway. 01 February 2013 - 23:00:51

    My wife and two energetic boys from Brisbane, Australia were looking for an apartment that would provide a great base for our holiday in Manhattan. We were looking for an elegant and spacious property that would allow us to feel comfortable and not live on top of each other like in a hotel room. From the very beginning I was impressed with Julia and her willingness to help. The welcome was inviting and made us feel at ease. After travelling for almost two weeks prior to arrival the suitcase had accumulated some clothing in desperate need of a wash and within 24 hours our clothes were washed, folded and sitting on our bed upon our return from a day out. The first night was spent at the baseball out in Queens and Julia arranged a town car to pick us up after the game which was great with a tired family wanting to get home. Like all other accommodation there are some table stakes that are just crucial to a good experience. This starts with the hospitality of the host and the appearance of the apartment which both were fantastic. Then for the two kids the Wi-Fi was fast and consistent, and for me and the world cup being on and hot summer days we needed a great tv and an air conditioner to spend some down time after a long day of playing in central park. However, the most important aspect of a good holiday is a happy wife and that means shopping. The location is just terrific with a short stroll to central park and a neighbourhood of cafes, restaurants and shops. The proximity to Madison avenue is great and the boutiques went on for miles. However, two things stand out for us on our holidays and in this case both were big ticks. The beds were large and very comfortable and the showers were hot and strong. We went to Boston for a few days and were able to leave our suitcases in storage here which was very convenient. All in all i highly recommend this accommodation. We stayed in both the balcony suite and the terrace suite and both were of excellent quality. We would definitely stay here again. 28 July 2014 - 04:26:12

    My son and I felt very welcomed when Julia met us at the beautiful front door and parlor area. We felt at home immediately. Elegance and quality were combined with personal touches. We loved the location just steps from Central Park, the museums and Madison Ave. shopping. We'll definitely stay here again! 27 October 2017 - 21:05:00

    We spent four nights at the Grande White Loft and couldn't have had a better time. Julia and Claudio, the owners were very personable, made us feel at home and went out of their way to ensure that all our needs were met. They were always available and gave us great suggestions for restaurants, activities and attractions in the area. The apartment was spacious and in great condition. TV, cable, appliances and WiFi worked perfect. Housekeepers did an excellent job. The location is unbeatable, just a short walk from Central park and many shops. We travel often and felt this stay was better than what we have experienced in many high end hotels. My entire family loved the place and can't wait to be back. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to NYC. 23 February 2015 - 03:21:41

    This 5th Ave Townhouse (Deluxe Terraced Suite) was outstanding. Elegant large rooms, high ceilings, beautifully detailed, immaculate, next to Central Park, a haven from busy NYC. Julia was very warm, welcoming and kind. Provided for our every need. Added very direct instructions and many tips for close restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, wine stores. We were able to enjoy 4 days with daughter and granddaughter in home atmosphere away from the busyness of NYC, enjoying dinners and family time on terrace. Highly recommend. 05 August 2015 - 18:49:45

    My twin 11 year-old sons and I stayed in the Grande White Loft and it was PERFECT! The town house itself was beyond elegant and our apartment in it was lovely, large, sun filled and quiet. It had all the comforts of home and then some--including great water pressure and a 'round-the-clock staff who were extremely helpful. We still cannot believe we were able to find a place like this to stay and are already planning our return! It is a charming, luxurious gem. Furthermore, the location of the townhouse was OUTSTANDING--so close to Central Park. I think the listing said it was 30 meters from the entrance to the Park but it felt even closer. It is on the most beautiful street, as well. We loved all the suggestions for restaurants and museums, etc., we were given by the host and even though we had to leave the neighborhood for certain plans we previously made--we really just wanted to stay there and rushed back after every outing! The BEST shopping, restaurants and museums are all right there and we took full advantage of that. Everything was just right! 05 August 2017 - 03:24:00
