About Sandy Wagner

My partner Marsha and I are both native New Yorkers who spent many years travelling the world. Marsha is an attorney and I am a part time mortgage banker and entrepreneur.

Sandy Wagner purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Sandy Wagner chose Manhattan

We moved to this house because it is a spectacular, gracious home. Most New Yorkers do not have the luxury of having the space we do. We feel very lucky to be living here

Loved, Loved, Loved this Loft!

  • 5 of 5

We (a mom and two teenage girls) stayed in this charming, sunny loft for 6 nights. We loved it! It has great character, is very comfortable and also fun with all the extras (ping pong table, workout equipment, books, games). It's location is ideal, with two different options for subway travel (5-10 minute walk). The neighborhood was lovely, quiet and safe. Sandy and Marsha are two special ladies, sharing their home, as well as yummy treats everyday. We enjoyed breakfast every morning with the items left for us. Loved, Loved, Loved it!!!

Totally New York!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay when you visit New York City! It is spacious, clean, and convenient to everything, including downtown. The local and express trains run regularly. We felt totally safe in the trendy neighborhood that is full of character. The bonus...Sandy and Marsha. They were extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. I had special dietary needs and they went out of their way to bring treats that worked for me. I have rented a lot of places through VRBO but this actually feels more like a charming bed and breakfast. It's a gem.

Charming New York Loft

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in this charming New York loft.

We arrived late in the evening to a warm reception and a brief overview of the neighborhood. Sondra and Marsha were so helpful, when we needed to navigate the city.

To make things better; we were only a few blocks away from the subway!!

We were visiting NY for business and after the hustle and bustle of a busy day, we welcomed the tranquility of this spacious loft. It was so easy to feel at home with Sandy and Marsha; that we often forgot that we were away from home.

The neighborhood was so charming and the bathroom was incredible. We recommend that your visit includes a stay here. We will definitely be back!

Sandy and Marcia very attentive -- absolutely loved the "welcome" plate in the fridge and the morning goodies. Appreciated the clear detailed instructions for appliances. Delightful hosts, wonderful space, convient location.

Unique Comfortable Hospitality in Harlem

  • 4 of 5

We chose to stay with Sandy and Marsha to be close to our son's apartment 4 blocks away and were very comfortable during our stay. The house is lovingly restored and furnished and they are very attentive hosts. For just one instance, the dining area was stocked when we arrived- ground coffee, orange juice, bagels, yogurt, etc.- in short all the makings for a simple breakfast. On several days Marsha also presented us with fresh muffins and other great home-baked goods! There is not a full kitchen, but we did not miss it as we either ate lunch and dinner out or ordered in. Easy walks to two different subway lines made travel downtown a snap, and Sandy was very helpful with all questions about directions. The only proviso we mention is that the apartment is an open plan- both sleeping areas are in the open space and the bathroom is the only fully private room. That said, we loved staying here and recommend it as a unique and pleasant base for a few days in New York!
