Argyll, Plum Guide home in New York

Argyll, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Argyll now: from £199 per night Effectively emphasising the home’s assets, your host proves to have a special touch for small spaces. It’s easy to overlook the square footage, for example, and appreciate instead the modern bathroom with its rainfall shower and stylish kitchenette. It's probably best suited for younger travellers looking for a base, rather than a place to hang out, but with its location in a residential part of the Upper East Side, this area is quiet and peaceful, something that can be hard to find in Manhattan. Local highlights include Gracie Mansion, the East River, and Carl Schurz Park. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Rustic Moderne

Rustic Moderne, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Rustic Moderne now: from £399 per night Spotlessly clean, your host takes excellent care of his homes and this one is no different. Recently remodelled and able to accommodate up to eight guests, this home is definitely on the cosier side of things. We don’t, however, expect you to be spending much time in the home itself when New York City awaits you. The Upper East Side location is mainly residential, so if you were hoping to be in the thick of the action, this might not be the place for you. Luckily, you’re well connected with the nearest subway just a few blocks away. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

The Apricot

The Apricot, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book The Apricot now: from £199 per night Located in a red brick building in one of New York's most iconic districts, this studio apartment is the perfect choice for anyone looking to stay in the leafy Upper East Side. Its compact size belies the fact that it comes equipped with all the must-haves, as well as some nice-to-haves – including a lush rainfall shower and neat desk space. The decor is sophisticated yet straightforward, and there's a sense of charm that many other professionally managed apartments just don't have. You're just seven blocks from the green expanse of Central Park and the designer boutiques and fascinating museums of Fifth Avenue. And when you fancy breaking out of your bougie UES bubble, 86th Street Station is just a five-minute walk away. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Uptown Girl now: from £9.16 per night Whether you’re looking at works by the biggest names in modern art at the Met, walking across the avenues to go for a jog in Central Park or catching the subway to trip the light fantastic in Lower Manhattan, there’s hardly a better place to call home in the Big Apple than this. With its tailored finishes and modish furniture, you’re in a chic apartment in an upscale neighbourhood. We've got a lot of time for the easy-on-the-eye wooden floors and fittings, as well as the ample amounts of natural light that pervade the living room from the tall windows. The ideal base for a romantic liaison or solo getaway, you could be hitting up the bars on Second Avenue, sifting through designer boutiques to your wallet’s content or taking in the river views from Carl Schurz Park — all within easy reach of your front door. At the end of an adventure-packed day, head up to the building's shrub-laden roof terrace to catch the sunset over the Upper East Side. We can guarantee your mind will be racing with all the places you’ve still got left to visit — that's the beauty of New York. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Penelope's Charm

Penelope's Charm, Plum Guide home in New York

Penelope's Charm, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Penelope's Charm now: from £185 per night This historic building was erected in the early twentieth century when the Upper East Side was being quickly transformed into a neighbourhood of mansions and townhouses. A lot has changed in the hundred years since but one thing that remains just as prestigious is this home's address. Less than a hundred yards from the entrance of Central Park, you can get to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in seven minutes on foot and the Guggenheim in fifteen. Your living quarters for the trip are cosy but contain everything you need to relax and get yourself ready ahead of a day of exploring the Big Apple. Perhaps an undersung highlight that comes with a stay here is the use of the communal entrance hall, which mixes European stately grandeur and Art Deco flourishes to make for a pleasant spot in which to get to know the neighbours. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
