About Ray Wick

I host 75-80 families and small groups of friends each year in my Apartments. All my guests have been very happy with the Apartment's large space to spread out and relax, the location, and its convenience. Many guests comment that it was a great experience to live in a genuine NYC neighborhood and feel the atmosphere, without the tourists & commercial distractions of mid-town. I live nearby so I am always available to you during your stay. I'm sure your group will be happy in my Apartment.

Ray Wick purchased this apartment in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughters and I throughly enjoyed staying at Ray's apartment for our week in beautiful NYC.

He couldn't have been more helpful to us with our numerous questions, being that it was our first visit. The apt was comfortable and clean as well as truly getting the feel for NY living.

The only suggestion I may have for Ray, is to purchase a "Keurig" coffee machine. We had a difficult time with the older "Mr. Coffee" maker he had in the apartment and it required filters which was really inconvenient.The pods are so much easier and better quality, in my opinion. I usually had to wait to get into town before getting my morning cup or 3!

Otherwise, we can't wait to return!

This place is FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at Ray’s property and just like before it did not disappoint! Ray has always been very responsive to questions and each time has greeted us at the door upon arrival. He takes the time to make sure you are familiar with his place and makes himself available should you need anything. The brownstone has always been neat and clean. And it’s such a great size at a very reasonable price. So much better than the cubicle of a hotel room at twice the price. It’s the perfect place to unwind after spending your days taking in the sights of the city. While it’s just north of the main attractions of the city the subway is super close and so easy to jump on to land you at your destination. Already looking forward to our next trip back! Thanks Ray!

Great host, location, apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Easy to get to from LaGuardia. 30 min cab ride. Then easy access to the subway. Ray, the host, is very easy to communicate with, available and accommodating. The apartment is super clean, nicely decorated and cozy. Not much street noise. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. Good restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Ray!

Comfortable, perfect location, caring owner

  • 5 of 5

Rays apartment is a perfect place for a family to stay. We were 3 adults and 1 child, enjoyed the comfortable, stylish, clean apt with all amenities you need. Surprisingly much space, quite, safe area, with only some steps to the next sub-station which brings you downtown in about 20 minutes. Ray and his wife are perfect hosts, care about everything you might need. Highly recommend the apt, would return at any time. Thank you, Ray!!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Ray was a great host. He kept in contact from the moment we reserved, up until the day before we traveled to NYC. He was there to greet us upon our arrival at his apartment and was very thorough in going over information in the "binder."

The apartment itself was great. Very cozy and comfortable. I slept on the sofa pull out bed and it was extremely comfortable. The apartment had all the toiletries and linens that we needed and Ray also mentioned that if there was anything we needed, all we had to do is ask. It was great to have a kitchen available. The only suggestion I would make to Ray would be to maybe provide coffee and creamer and other basic kitchen staples like salt, pepper, sugar, etc. Would make it so much easier than having to buy those things for our stay.

Other than that, our stay was great and if I ever have the opportunity to visit NYC again, I will certainly reach out to Ray.

The apartment was very comfortable for our one week stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was close to the 137th Metro line 1 where we felt safe walking to catch the subway to downtown Manhattan. Ray, the owner, was very informative in showing us all of Manhattan highlights on the map on our first day. It was very helpful to understand the whereabouts of each neighborhood borough when taking the subway. Thank you, Ray!
