Apartments in New York
New Yorkers travel for part of the year and rather than
let their apartment sit empty, they make it available for
daily, weekly or monthly guests.
may be apartments that are set up for rental - or the empty
nests of New Yorkers on vacation themselves. This alternative
to hotels has been popular in Europe for years and is starting
to catch on in Manhattan.
a great way to get the real New York experience when you
visit. Check the prices and the areas - a cheap apartment
may be in a less desirable location.
great prewar buildings in nice areas are walk ups. Make
sure you ask about elevators, pets and other amenities if
they will make a difference to your enjoyment of your vacation.
& Breakfasts are rooms in an occupied apartment. It
isn't the same as having your own apartment, but worth checking
of these agencies carry national and international vacation
rentals. If you live in New York, you may want to see what
they have available in other areas!
sure when you deal with owners, that you get a written contract
listing the dates and the amount that you've agreed on.
Most owner rentals require a deposit to reserve the dates
you want - and the deposit is not usually refundable. Travel
insurance is a good idea if there is any chance you may
need to cancel or change your plans. Most owners in New
York get a lot of inquiries and holding the dates for you
means turning down others who want the apartment. These
are not hotels, but people who are opening their homes.
upside of renting an apartment is that you have a home away
from home where you can settle in and get up in the middle
of the night for a snack without calling room service. If
you want a home cooked meal, you can cook! It can save quite
a bit of money... most are priced lower than comparable
owners will be glad to help you get oriented in the city
and tell you where the good restaurants are and which sights
downside is that you are on your own. There will be no concierge
to set up tickets to plays and no room service to make the
beds. If you cook, there are dishes to clean... not something
you may want to deal with on a vacation!
