Deserves 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5
1* Immaculate, spacious, tasteful unit stocked well. Washer & Dryer so one may pack lightly! The only stairs are a few down from the sidewalk. After a day in New York, no stairs are nice. Kitchen encourages cooking.
2* Safe, secure, private and quiet.
3* Location. Hamilton-Washington Heights is home to rich cultural diversity, convenient transportation and nearby parks and museums, including The Hispanic Society's hidden gem only 3 blocks away. Nearby Broadway makes local shopping convenient.
4* Congenial owners. Michael & Golda are tops.
5* You are in New York City! Enjoy!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in the apartment for our first time visit to New York. Golda and Michael made us feel very welcome and they have set up the apartment beautifully with everything you could possibly need. It was amazing how we evolved from two nervous travelers finding our way to the subway (not being used to using public transport) to feeling like we were totally at home within a couple of days. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment.

Super Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We were glad to have chosen this apartment! The whole description is right. When you look the fotos, you can see everything.
The apartment is clean and very well equipped. All things are in a good state. In addition to a coffee machine there was also a Nespresso machine. We have enjoyed it very much.

Golda and Michael are fantastic hosts. They are very kind and helpful. They offered to help us at any time. We didn`t miss anything and felt welcome.
If we come back to New York, we'll book this apartment again.

Nearby there are several shops and supermarkets. Restaurants are also round the corner, but we were mostly in the restaurants that were recommended in our guide book.
For breakfast we found several nice restaurants close to columbus circle.

Golda and Michael: Thank you for all. We enjoyed the stay in your apartment.

If you are looking for a modern, clean, well equipped apartment then this the apartment for you. My husband, myself and our eldest daughter had an amazing week's holiday in this spacious apartment. In spite of our very late evening arrival we were warmly greeted by Golda and Michael. There are plenty of shops close by, and we made it a daily ritual to go to the corner store for our fresh breakfast bagels each morning.The subway train is within easy walking distance making getting around to all the well known tourist places easy to accomplish.There are plenty of brochures and general information available in the apartment and if further assistance is required Golda and Michael are happy to assist. We definitely have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to our friends and relatives or in staying there again ourselves. Thank you Golda and Michael for helping make our first visit to New York such a pleasruable experience

We heart Harlem

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous place to call home for our extended weekend in NYC. We love Harlem and all it has to offer. Hamilton Heights is close to the subway and walking distance to parks shops, and delicious restaurants and bars. We will definitely be calling this place our home again next year! Thank you G and M! You are by-far the best hosts yet!

An Oasis in NYC

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this wonderful spot for four days over Labor Day 2014. The pictures on the site are very accurate and I echo all of the prior positive comments about Golda and Michael as exceptional hosts. The energy, pride, and care they devote to their rental is obvious.

Some folks may balk at the location being so far north in Manhattan but remember that both train and bus transit are just a few blocks away. Get an unlimited MTA pass and you can go anywhere in the city. The neighborhood is safe and vibrant.

After long, fun days exploring the city, it was wonderful to come "home" to this place and be comfortable, cool, quiet, and safe.

Enjoy this spot if you can!

We were raised in the neighborhood, and had been looking for a brownstone in the neighborhood to purchase for a few years, so when this property became available, we were excited at the opportunity to purchase and renovate it. 2 years later it is finally complete for us and you to relax and enjoy.
