Description

The space

Our fifth floor flat in a gorgeous prewar elevator building boasts high ceilings, gleaming hard wood floors, overflowing sunlight and sweeping views of Central Park.

The spacious private bedroom is sun drenched, with a queen-sized bed and an attached, full private bathroom. It overlooks Central Park and a Gothic mansion from the turn of the century. The peaceful sounds of a lovely fountain sitting in the mansion's front yard greet you every morning.

The corner living room is architecturally significant in that it is located within a circular turret, with views of Central Park to the East, the Gothic mansion to the North, and downtown Manhattan to the South.

Ericka and Dave were great hosts—very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Their home is beautifully decorated, warm, and immaculate. Located right across the street from Central Park, the location was perfect for our needs and the room has a view of a gorgeous building across the street. We hope to have the opportunity to stay with them on a future visit!

The place is awesome, having a ensuited bath and shower is heavenly. The apartment is near the 103 rd B/C subway lines. It is right in front the Central Park, you can cross the street and in a couple of minutes you will be traversing through the amazing Jack Onasis Kennedy Lake. The place is quite, the room is big, well equipped and the hosts are very welcoming people. Recommended!

The room and bathroom were very comfortable, warm, and clean, and Ericka and Dave couldn't have been more gracious. They responded immediately to any question, gave excellent recommendations, and left my sweetheart and I to ourselves otherwise. Their building is across the street from Central Park and a 3 minute, block and a half walk to the subway. The neighborhood was quiet at night and convenient to restaurants, stores, and a few subway stops away from midtown--we found it easy and quick to get back to their building during the day and late. at night. I couldn't recommend their place more highly and would be happy to stay here again.

Erika and Dave (and Simba) were very helpful, welcoming and friendly hosts, the apartment was warm and cosy, decorated with much love and equipped with everything we needed. The location just across central Park was just perfect for us: easy to get everywhere by public transport and in a rather quiet, peaceful neighbourhood as well. We'd love to come back and recommend the place highly for a visit of NYC!

Thank You again for having us there, we traveled together and enjoyed this place a lot for almost two weeks during our stay in NYC. The apartment was really well heated which was so nice since the weather was chilly and rainy outside - we could always trust to have warm welcome there! The room was spacious and the apartment overall really cozy with all the necessary equipment imaginable (we did not really cook there apart from making breakfast so cannot really emphasize on that). The hosts were really nice, helpful and flexible for our convenience, so in our experience you may expect to have an easy going atmosphere. The subway station at two blocks away is the key element for easy access to different parts of Manhattan fairly easily and Central Park across the street is just amazing if you are up for it. This was our first Airbnb experience ever and I think we got it just about right (:

Dave and Ericka are such hospitable and flexible hosts. Their home is lovely and so are they. They let us arrive when our flight came in (before the typical 3pm check in time), and were also super flexible with our check out time. We would definitely recommend them to any and everyone! We hope to be back soon! Thank you for welcoming us into your home!

Ericka and Dave were fabulous hosts! The room and bathroom were great, and the apartment was decorated very nicely for the holidays. My husband and I were mostly out and about, but when we did see Ericka or Dave it was always a pleasant interaction. The apartment is in a really convenient and quieter part of the city--Central Park is right across the street!! Fantastic dining options nearby as well as some good jazz clubs. We were only there a few days, but we both felt very comfortable and welcomed in the apartment. Definitely recommend this place!

Hi there!

My boyfriend Dave and I share a two bed, two bath apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan with our super friendly, super cute pet Chihuahua. We live on Central Park, with park views from every window.

We love traveling and meeting people from all over the US and the world, so we started using Airbnb to share our spare bedroom.
