New York in Comfort. Home from Home

  • 5 of 5
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!

Best Holiday Ever With The Best Apartment And Best Hosts Ever

  • 5 of 5
Well what a great Holiday. We started with the welcoming party Golda and Michael which was great. Golda and Michael were just like family and we made our self right at home. The apartment was everything we expected, very clean modern and comfortable. All the linen and towel were fresh and new. It was lovely to come home to all the comforts of home. The property is immaculate and well stocked. The big bathroom and three mirrors were a must with three girls. (Good thinking Golda). The kids loved the Wifi so they could keep in touch with back home. I loved the washing machine and dryer, with four people spending two weeks it was a must. The whole apartment was very comfortable. The information pack that was given to us on arrival was very informative. With places to visit and restaurant to eat at was great. The guest book was good to with some great tips from other guests. If you stay please remember to read my two page essay. It is full of great places to visit. The Hamilton Heights is a great area. The locals are very friendly and helpful. You feel very safe and we had two kids in toe. It was a short walk to the subway. Which we tamed the breast the first day so Golda informed us. You will feel very safe in the apartment with a security coded gate to enter and two locks on the front door. I would holiday here in a heart beat again. The priced was right too. I would highly recommended this property. I just wish it was my own! Thanks Golda and Michael you are special people.

So Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Micheal and Golda for such great accommodations and hospitality! The apartment was perfect and as described and photographed. We were very comfortable and felt like we were at home. The unit is new, very clean, complete with all amenities and very close to the subway for easy transportation. We wanted to experience a different part of the city and staying in Hamilton Heights was great. The neighborhood is vibrant and safe, markets and restaurants are close by. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the back patio and planned our day. The subway lines are a short walk away and a quick ride to any part of the city. The apartment is very secure with a locked coded gate so no need to worry about your belongings. WiFi, large tv and awesome coffee maker! There is a lot of history in this neighborhood...The Church of the Intercession should not be missed and around the corner. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a cozy home away from home.

Perfect, priceworth living when exploring Manhattan

  • 5 of 5
Our stay of 5 days in this newrenovated, modern apartment was even better than expected. So well equipped with all you need and more. Lots of space for 4 persons and a no traffic disturbens. Clean and nice. Only a few minutes walk to restaurants, shops, bus or subway with fast connections to the most interesting places of Manhattan and even other areas. And we will never forget the very nice and friendly hosts as you really can reley on. This is a priceworth alternative to explore Manhattan and we have already recommended it to our Swedish friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you Anders, It was a delight to host you and your family. We are so glad you enjoyed our home and your stay. Our home does allow for a nice relaxing stay from midtown, although you are still in the city.
