Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The place is super comfortable and much better then being in the hustle and bustle of Times Square. It was an easy subway ride around to other locations. All the comforts of home were thought of in this brownstone. Lastly, the owners are amazing. We were greeted by Michael on day 1 and he walked us through the ins and outs of the area. Each time we met up with him he shared new tips. On our last day Golda came to meet us and finished off my thought that these people by far are the best people from NY. On our last night we stayed and chatted with them for over an hour. This was a total A + stay!!! Thanks for making my stay amazing❤️❤️

Beautiful and CLEAN

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four from Vancouver, Canada who were very happy with our choice. We rent through VRBO globally very frequently and would rank this property as one of our top picks.

Spacious for New York, well stocked and modern kitchen, nice bed linens and towels, lovely patio, safe neighbourhood, access to transport - bus and subway. Having a washer and dryer was an added bonus. Other nice touches were - coffee, tea and laundry soap was provided.

Also can't say enough nice things about our hosts - from quick booking to a great check in and their warmth and hospitality. Thank you.

Our teens loved the area and are sad to leave - that should tell the readers something. Will recommend to others in a heartbeat !

Owner's Response: Hi family, thank you all so much for staying with us and writing such a great review. It was great meeting each of you. We always try to take the time to say hi to our guests and help them out with directions and answer any questions they may have to get them situated. It's very important to us that our guests enjoy their stay with us. Coffee and tea are the must haves on any travel and everything else is extra. With that said we enjoy great coffee and tea so an expresso machine in the unit is a must.(We're coffee drinkers!!) , so I'm happy to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves. It was our pleasure meeting your family. Thank you all for staying at our home and we hope to see you all again. Michael & Golda

Wonderful Stay in Hamilton Heights

  • 5 of 5

My mother, my teenage daughter, and I stayed in this apartment for 5 days. It was very spacious. The owners have created a beautiful and relaxing space which felt like home. The kitchen is great and fully stocked with all the necessary pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils, etc. to cook your own meals. We loved the espresso that was supplied. The bedroom has the most comfortable bed! The living room has a sofa bed which was also very comfortable. The washer/dryer was a great bonus and detergent was supplied. Although there are only two windows, the space was really bright. It was also so quiet! The neighborhood was really great. There are a lot of restaurants and stores if you need anything, but the brownstone is located on a tree lined side street which never seemed busy. The subway was a quick 5 minute walk and there was a bus stop even closer. Michael and Golda have put a lot of thought into making this apartment modern and cozy. They supplied a lot of extras (umbrellas, maps, books, suggestions of fantastic restaurants, the delicious coffee! plus more). Upon our arrival, they took time to meet us to explain how things worked in the apartment and how to get to the subway. They were also two of the nicest people I've ever met. If I'm lucky enough to travel to New York again, I hope I have the pleasure of staying in this apartment!

You were on a whirlwind tour with all the broadway shows!! I'm so glad everything went great. You'll probably need a vacation after your NYC visit. Thank you all for staying with us. We hope to see you all again. Michael & Golda.

Suoerb!!!

  • 5 of 5

The garden apartment was very clean with so many amenities. We could not have wanted more. Our host Michael was warm and welcoming, with a bundle of information about the area. And this Harlem section of NYC was very interesting with many parks, museums, Yankee stadium nearby, as well as historical sights. In addition, the Trattoria was one of the best pizza palaces. We were just 30 to 40 minutes from mid-Manhattan, including the walk to the subway and ride. We would be back in a heartbeat. By the way-- we even did our laundry in the apartment before we went home!!

Cozy, clean with attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this apartment for our 1st family vacation in NYC. Micheal Matthews was very helpful with travel tips. Great kitchen to prep breakfast and supper. Coffee on the patio in the morning while listening to the birds sing was a pleasant surprise. We used the subway most of the time. Cab ride down town was about $25 to 42nd ST.

Owner's Response: Hi guys, thank you all for your review. We're happy to hear that you all took the time to enjoy breakfast on the patio. The birds can be loud so I'm happy to hear that you all enjoyed hearing them.

Thank you all for selecting our home for your first NY visit. We're very happy to know that you all enjoyed your stay. We hope to ssee e you all again. Michael and Golda.

Wonderful Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment. While the pictures are nice, the apartment looks even better in person. It's very nicely decorated and furnished with all the essentials you need for a comfortable stay. It's clear that the owners take pride in caring for the property and keeping everything in good condition. I think this is one of the best care rentals that we have stayed.

In terms of the rental, it was very spacious, much more than expected for a NY apartment. The patio space was a welcomed and a nice unexpected addition. The bed in the main bedroom was comfortable. I enjoyed the espresso machine and the kitchen had all the appliances and utensils that you need. I liked the apartment and would definitely stay there again when in NYC.
