Excellent Manhattan Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending nine nights at Golda and Michael's apartment while we explored New York city for the first time. The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious, safe and quiet. It felt great to be able to come "home" after a long day of touring. The bed and linens were top notch. Even the pullout bed in the living room couch was very comfortable on those nights when I retreated from my husband's snoring:) While we did not cook while we were there, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils. It even has an espresso machine if you are so inclined. The subway is a very reasonable 7-block walk and there are many bus lines which are as close as the end of the block. Golda and Michael are warm and wonderful hosts. They met us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment and explained the subway (very helpful!) and suggested places to eat and visit. They made us very very welcomed and appreciated throughout our stay. We highly recommend their lovely apartment!

This property is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for us since wanted to be close to the Universities. The owners, who live next door were gracious hosts, and always available to help. The parking was scarce. I will definitely not bring a car next time. All in all, a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this apartment and it owners!!! Our family of 3 spent a week in NYC and this apartment was a perfect home base to come back to after exploring the city. The apartment is in a beautiful building, remolded with care by the owners. The neighborhood is cute, safe, friendly and diverse. We found many grocery store and restaurant options. Subway and bus stops are easy to get to. Owners Michael and Golda were awesome hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you!!!

We had a wonderful time! The apartment more than met all our needs. The bed was SO comfortable! We were only a quick walk to a subway train. Very convenient to anywhere. Kitchen was large and had all you could want. Bathroom was large, clean and had a shower / bathtub.

We will DEFINITELY stay here again!

Thank you so much!

Muchas gracias Michael y Golda por su hospitalidad, amabilidad y buen humor. Nos sentimos como en casa, lejos de casa. El apartamento cubrió completamente nuestras expectativas, limpio, amplio y muy bién equipado, no solo con electrodomesticos, sino también con esos pequeños detalles que hicieron mas completa nuestra estadia (capsulas de cafe, te, jabon del lavavajillas, lavarropas y mas). Saludos cordiales desde Argentina. Gustavo

From the Owner

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 enjoy and call home.
