"Friendly" Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful experience for me and my family to stay at Golda and Michael´s property in Harlem, not only for being a very nice, clean and well situated apartment, but for the kindness and support of its owners.

For sure, on my next trip to NY , I will contact them again.

Great location! If I could have moved in I would have! Michael and his family couldn't be any more welcoming. The apartment was very clean and such a positive warm vibe. The neighborhood was great! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

THIS is how an apartment rental is done!! Clean, comfortable, stylish - this place has it all. One of my pet peeves with VRBO and Airbnb rentals is that the owner doesn't give you sufficient information to navigate your stay (wifi codes, how to adjust heat/air, where to place garbage, etc...) Michael and Golda were very helpful and had an organized packet of specific details which helped with every aspect of staying there. They even provided a plethora of maps and tourist books to make the NYC stay even better. Plenty of local options for groceries and food - lots of places delivered, even grocery delivery was an option. The kitchen was well equipped, and they had a washer and dryer inside the unit, which can be rare for a NYC rental. Bedding was top notch - even the sleeper sofa was comfy! Subway access was about 5 blocks away - bus lines were close as well. Often, Harlem rentals require walking up and down steep hills - this location was located in a relatively flat area - a definite plus in my opinion. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would - I cannot think of a single thing that I would change about this place. We absolutely loved our stay here and hope to come back again. I highly recommend without any reservation at all - you will not be sorry for choosing this one!

We have realy enjoyed our stay.

New York is a wonderful city.

Every day was a new surprise.

We walked more than 150 miles, just for fun.

And the apartment is perfect: very comfortable, very well located for subway and shops.

We loved it..

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!
