If you are a regular guest of The Carlyle, The Mark, or The Surrey, but are looking for more space, privacy, quiet and personalized service... or if you are a couple celebrating a special occasion... or if you are simply looking for an unforgettable stay - this classically furnished most luxurious guest suite of our house is for you !!!

The suite is decorated with old-world antiques and the charm of 16th century Florentine prints...

Very very high 16ft ceilings...

Original, meticulously laid at the turn of the 19th century, parquet floors.

The suite comes with a private furnished TERRACE overlooking a large and serene green courtyard


Though this suite is the largest of the 5 guest apartments of our house, we do prefer to host only 2-3 guests in it.

The Terraced Suite is about luxury, and not about the efficient use of space....

*** (please CLICK on "More Details" below to expand for more information)

70sqm / 753sqft | on 2nd floor - take Elevator or gorgeous marble stairs

This elegant Aristocratic Beaux-Art style Landmark Townhouse was built in 1904 from Indiana limestone and Italian marble. It has been our family's main residence since 1994.

The lower floors we have converted into completely separate & very private guest apartments (all independent entry) available for short term let year-round.

We have been hosting guests from around the world since 2005.

this listing is recently created and thus has only 19 reviews (another reason for few reviews: I find that public figures do not volunteer to write reviews... and I never ask… )

Still, between the other 4 listings we have over 260 reviews.

[ 95% of those reviews are 5-star reviews… and the ones that have 4 stars "only" could have easily been 5-star reviews... see for yourself ].



at maximum occupancy (which we allow very rarely) up to 18 additional guests can be accommodated among the other 4 guest apartments in our house. Please see HomeAway listing 808231 (3 units) and 952457 (Dlx European Suite).

You might want to visit that listing if you wish to learn about:

- Rates

- Amenities & Bedding

- Location and Transportation

- how to INQUIRE and what we would like to know about you


We respond to EVERY inquiry. Be sure to INCLUDE YOUR PHONE number.

Please also tell us who are the travelers (relationship to each other), where you are coming from, your approximate age, and the reason for this trip. In general, the more information you provide (age, occupation, familiarity with our neighborhood, etc) the better. We are very particular about whom we host, so I do wonder who stands behind every inquiry... please help me be as welcoming with you as possible (not just polite) from the very start...

And if we did not respond within 8 hours, then we did not receive your inquiry. -

Finally, while we are all for celebrating important milestones, please understand, that other guest families will be staying in the house, thus we would not welcome a party that might disturb others.

Perfect location and beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at the Deluxe Terraced Suite during October 2016 and can’t say enough how much we enjoyed our time in NYC because of this location. We ended up having a hard time leaving the area. The townhouse is located right near Surrey’s. Central Park is just a block away with a park entrance right on 76ths street and Fifth Ave. You walk down the street, and you are in one of the most beautiful areas of the Central Park, surrounded by the great museums and the art galleries of the Upper East side. Julia gave us great tips for places to see, like the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum which was a hit with our early-teen kids. The apartment itself looks exactly like in the pictures, spacious, very classy and most of all extremely clean. There’s not one speck of dust anywhere in the apartment. The linens smell fresh and clean and the bed mattress is very comfortable. The kids slept in the living room sofas which were very comfortable as well. Besides cleaning the apartment (and doing an exceptional job at that), Anna, the housekeeper did the laundry for us. I still can’t get over her smiling face bringing our carefully folded laundry every day. We really appreciated that.

We also had family and friends visit us for a few hours at a time in the apartment which turned out to be really enjoyable as we felt like they were visiting us at our home rather than at a hotel. Julia runs the place and she is an exceptional host. She’s direct and she’s approachable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, she will want to talk to you before the arrangements are finalized and at first this was a bit out of the ordinary, but by the time I met Julia, it was like she was an old friend. She will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and welcomed at her place. I highly recommend the Fifth Avenue Apartments and would love to return!

Refined apartment living in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

As an executive assistant to an entertainment industry producer, I had the pleasure to interact with Julia regarding the Deluxe Terraced Suite at her townhouse.

My boss was a guest there for eight nights. The decor and location were exceptional and as described online. Julia and her staff were very responsive and always available to answer requests, accept deliveries and be of service to my boss. Their services, including daily housekeeping, were as impeccable as any top rated NYC hotel.

5 Stars for a very comfortable and extremely quiet stay at a location that can't be beat!

Perfect location to enjoy Central Park & U.E.S.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (+ dog) stayed here recently for a long weekend. Very convenient to C.P. and the Met/Guggenheim, as well as all Upper East Side environs. Plenty of good dinning/food choices nearby. The building owners (who reside on the upper floors of the building) rent several apts in the building, all of very good quality (we got a peek at some of the others). The owner (Julia) was always available for assistance, and was quick to respond. The building had the usual "old school NYC" characteristics; nice lobby, high ceilings, and good working elevator. We stayed in the "Grand White Loft", a 1 bedroom apt with 4 add'l beds/fotons nicely distributed in the living space. Though we spent most of our time out & about, the place had plenty of space and was more than comfortable enough. It all worked very well, and we'll be back!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

As a personal assistant I was entrusted to book a complete trip to New York including finding a safe, quite, centrally located place to stay for a week for a very busy mother of three teen aged children. A friend of mine who had previously stayed here recommended this townhouse. It look perfect, exactly what I was looking for.

From my initial contact to departure, Julia was wonderful; very responsive and professional. She assisted with making several special accommodation and was easy to work with. My boss and her family have very particular dietary preferences; I gave Julia an extensive and specific grocery list of items for their stay. No problem, Julia took care of that and made sure the kitchen was stocked with the requested items prior to their arrival. Since my boss and her family were getting in late, Julia made sure the beds were all turned down and ready for the children to slide right into.

My boss and her family were greeted upon arrival by a live-in staff member even though it was 2 AM. The following morning Julia made sure to personally greet my boss and her family, and made herself personally available if needed.

My boss was very pleased with the townhouse. The townhouse was everything she envisioned; beautifully and tastefully decorated turn of the 19th century house, with high ceilings. There also was a very pretty courtyard, nice and spacious terrace. She was quite impressed and happy with my selection.

Julia's pre-arrival packet was so thorough and helpful. She really has thought of everything. If you want a worry-free, safe, quite, centrally located, beautiful place to stay, look no further. This townhouse will not disappoint.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely time at the 5th Ave Townhouse. Our family loved being steps from Central Park and having access to so many amazing restaurants and shops in the area. We enjoyed having the kitchen and housekeeping everyday which is an uncommon service for vacation rentals. We loved the charm and the history of the building and we appreciated very much the hospitality of our hosts Julia and Claudio Zanetti.

Julia is the best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four weeks in the Terrace Suite on the second floor. The suite was large, bright and overlooked the rear courtyard. The location of the townhouse was perfect for us: we were a one minute walk from Central Park, perhaps only a hundred steps to Madison Avenue. I cannot imagine a better Upper East Side location. Our favorite restaurants were close by: Cafe Bolud, Caravaggio, E.A.T., and in Carnegie Hill, Sarabeth's. Museum Mile is around the corner. The Gagosian was across the street. Julia is a charming host. When I locked myself out, she was there with a key. When we needed directions or towels, she delivered them with a smile. Our room was serviced daily with fresh towels and linens. By the time we left Julia's home, we felt like family.
