Modern City. The building is a beautiful turn-of-the-century old world townhouse that has been completely renovated and modernized in 2013. It has high ceilings, oversized windows, marble fire mantels and brick walls. Each bedroom has brand new linens including down comforters with 100% high thread count cotton duvet covers. We love the stellar location, the open brick walls and the original fireplaces for a dash of historic character in the bedrooms, and the comfort and space ideal for a family stay.

Lisa G.
Member since October 02, 2016
Born and raised in New York City, Lisa has spent the better part of the last twenty five years in the travel industry, managing the travel needs of demanding New York City corporations and luxury vacationers. During her years in New York City, Lisa purchased and renovated numerous apartments, becoming intimately familiar with the New York City real estate market. In 2008, Lisa began renting her investment condominiums as short term vacation rental properties. Lisa found a natural merge of her two life interests, travel and real estate, while satisfying the needs of families and friends seeking quality vacation apartment accommodations when visiting New York City. However, in 2011, when New York State passed a new law making short term rentals illegal in Class A buildings, Lisa was forced to immediately cease from renting her apartments short term. Over the course of the following two years, Lisa searched New York City seeking the perfect “legal” two family townhouse. In 2013, Lisa finally located, purchased and gut renovated what is now known as Midtown Flats. In the years to follow, Lisa purchased additional homes in the Hamptons, a beach resort destination located approximately two hours from New York City. As a specialist in corporate and leisure travel, Lisa has had the opportunity to experience the finest luxury hotels around the world. This experience coupled with Lisa’s knowledge of her client’s needs gives her the background to understand what vacation travelers are seeking when looking for a vacation rental apartment in New York City and the Hamptons.
