Myself and 4 friends rented this property in March 2016. I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed this place. I've never bothered to write a trip advisor review before but felt the need to because it was so great. There is plenty of room for many people. Having the backyard pool was amazing. There is even a fountain that is a nice relaxing background sound. Birds from near the aviary take quick little baths in the pool on occasion (don't worry - they don't leave anything behind). The place is an easy walking distance to 5th ave. From the map I thought we might need cabs but not at all. The backyard is super private. We spent lots of nights chatting on the outside veranda. The hosts were great - offered assistance at all times but never intruded upon our stay. Totally recommend!
