Luxury Serviced Suite w/TERRACE | Owner & Staff onsite | bet Carlyle & CntrlPark



Updated: 25-Oct-2016
Daily Maid Svs | Luxury-Safety-Serenity | families-couples-friends | Elevator

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

Very tall and wide windows. Southern and Eastern exposures.

2 very large rooms are separated by a hallway and a bathroom.

Bedroom has a heavy wooden door.

Full well-equipped kitchen.

Beautiful marble bathroom with medium size bathtub/shower.

Bathroom is located in the hallway between the bedroom and living room and is equally accessible to all guests of the suite.


Not included in the square footage calculations are :

- private BALCONY off the living room (8.7 x 2.4 ft = 264 x 72 cm )

- quiet garden view furnished TERRACE with entrance off the bedroom (14 x 12 ft = 426 x 366 cm)


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.

My husband, and I, and our young son live on the top three floors (4,5,6) of the house.

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 9 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 240 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).

If you are not familiar with location please see specific detailed LOCATION & Transportation information on our listing 808231.

Beyond that 808231 listing contains lots of additional useful information that pertains to the entire house and all guest apartments.

- 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...

Excellent apt. on the Upeer East Side

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at 10 East 76th St. in the Deluxe Terrace Suite for 9 days in the middle of June. We are mature and well-travelled. We have booked short term apts. in NYC before and this was by far our best experience. The location is ideal for us with an entrance to Central Park less than a block away. It is the best part of Central Park with the Conservatory Water sailboat race pond, rental rowboats and the Delacorte Fountain all close by. At the end of the block you will find Café Boulud handy and a few blocks south on Madison there is a nice little grocery with everything you might need and Eli Zabar’s Pastries is across the street. Madison Ave. is home to wall to wall high end clothes and shoe stores as well as jewelers. The gem called the Metropolitan Museum is a short walk north.

The building is beautiful and landmarked. The apts. are roomy and well maintained. Our apt. is exceptionally quiet. It had everything we needed. The wifi was fast and without fault. The cable TV had more channels than we have at home. Anna the housekeeper was attentive and it was wonderful being able to have her do our laundry. Julia will handle the details of your stay with precision, kindness and clarity. Face the facts. Lodging in NYC is expensive because demand and building expenses are high. Compare these apts. with the hotels in the neighborhood. You will get a full kitchen, a separate bedroom and much more floor space at 10 East 76th for the same price as a hotel studio with a cube refrigerator. We are lucky to have found this apt. and will definitely stay here on all our NYC trips.

It is worrisome signing on for an expensive stay and dealing with someone you don’t know and maybe in a city you are not familiar with. Let me put your mind at ease. You will get what is promised and have a good time at this apt.

PS-Red Farm is our favorite restaurant. It is always very crowded and busy and not a place for us. It is right on the other side of the Park and lo and behold they have a wonderful delivery service that never failed to bring our food to 10 East 76th piping hot. We are in Palm Beach 6 months a year and there is no similar great food that can be ordered in there.

Immaculate, Stunning and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Awake to birds chirping in the morning!

  • 4 of 5

I was able to convince my wife to take our 12 and 9 year old daughters to NY for the first time. While I travel often to NY and other large cities, my wife has always been overwhelmed by the Big Apple and the crowds. Julia and Claudio provided us a "home away from home." We had a wonderful three night stay in the Terraced Apt. Plenty of room to be together and relax. All of the recommendations for local shopping and restaurants were spot on. It was wonderful to step out of the condo and not be run over by crowds, but instead see locals walking their dogs! Only steps to the MET, Central Park and everything we needed made the stay wonderful. Time Square was only a 10 minute cab ride at most after a day of walking. Our host could not have been more accommodating. While the home was full, we rarely saw or heard any of the other guest. Julia and Claudio take great care with whom they open their home to in order to ensure all have a wonderful experience. We will be back!

Perfect NYC home base

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay with Julia and Claudio and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else in New York City. We are a professional couple who travel often for business and leisure and the apartment has plenty of room for us to work between meetings. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to enjoy many meals at home, including our NYC-based daughter’s birthday dinner. The shower water pressure is perfectly delicious and the daily housekeeping includes laundry service, which was quite a plus for this 12 day stay. A favorite feature of the Terraced Suite is the magnificent collection of Italian prints that line the walls. We look forward to returning when the weather is warm to enjoy the lovely outdoor terrace.

Primera vez que alquilamos este apartamento y regresare todas las veces que pueda. Somos Peruanos.

Estuvimos una semana, mi nieta, 17 años, mi hijo, 47, y yo, 74, lo pasamos muy bien, muy cómodos, sumamente limpio, nos recibió Julia personalmente a pesar de llegar a media noche y tuvo la gentileza de poner agua en la refrigeradora, jamón, galletas, café, lo indispensable para la llegada y el primer desayuno. Nos dio shampoo, jabón y todo lo que le solicitamos sin costo adicional.

Recomiendo 100% este departamento con su simpática dueña. Julia esta siempre disponible.

Ninguna queja de nuestra parte.

Absolutely STUNNING Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were the most fortunate travelers in NYC last week. After our original apartment was too unsanitary for us, we quickly looked up and found this fabulous place. Fortunately for us, there had been a cancellation and Julia welcomed us immediately. The location of this suite could not have been more perfect. Close to the park, for morning runs and walks, a quick walk to the subway, and delicious food all within a short distance. (Daily bagels can be found on Lex and 77th!) I hesitate to recommend this too highly or it won't be available for our next visit! The suite was so clean and the kitchen was complete with coffee, chocolate and water. Clean towels and maid service every day was a bonus you don't usually get with an apartment stay. The bathroom was beautiful and the shower gifted us with delightfully hot and pulsating water to wash away the miles of walking we did each day. There were four of us, my husband, myself and our two grown children. There was plenty of room, and Julia and her staff made sure that everyone was very comfortable with extra blankets and an extra foam mattress. Oh, the bed was heavenly! Julia also took care to text each night to make sure we were warm enough and would turn on the heat at our request. The apartment was so quiet and we really felt like we were away from the hustle and bustle from the moment we stepped into the welcoming foyer. You will not find a nicer host than Julia. This is an exquisite place to stay and we will absolutely be returning.
