- english, german
I am a retired German, living in New York for a while and like to host nice and reliable guests from all over the world. New York is the perfect city for me, because I like music, theater, movies and other cultural events. I am singing with the Peace of Heart choir, I am learning to play clarinet (when I am by myself) and I am volunteering in a Off-Broadway theater. I like talking to my guests - and I like my privacy too.

The place was very clean, and our host was very helpful, providing us with a yummy healthy breakfast every morning and gave us lots of helpful tips about New York. It’s in a great location, close to the bus stop and the subway. Would recommend others to stay :)
Good experience, nice host
The place is nice and cosy, the subway just around the corner. Very comfortable, Heide is an ideal host and has many tips for the stay in New York City.
Pleasant, quiet stay, overlooking the Hudson
We came to New York to see our daughter graduate from Columbia and we stayed a total of five nights at Monika's apartment on the upper west side. The bedroom is exactly as it looks in the picture. The bed is comfortable and there is ample space to hang and stow clothing. There is one bathroom that we all shared, but it was never an issue. Her breakfasts each morning included fresh fruit, toast, juice and coffee, a very nice start. She was friendly and helpful, not intrusive and had useful information and tips for people new to the city and neighborhood (although we have traveled to NYC several times and used other VRBOs, we were grateful for her input). The view from the room overlooks the riverside park and the Hudson and is quite nice. It is a two block walk (uphill) to the 1 line into midtown; quite easy even for people a bit older. We very much enjoyed our stay with Monika and would recommend her place to individuals or couples.
A great host, we got a very warm welcome, she is very helpful and kind and answers all questions (her New York App is amazing!). The room is gorgeous, really huge and bright and very cozy. As well is the apartment. We were really to sorry to stay only such a short time - we will definitely come back again.
Bright and comfortable
I had a wonderful stay with my host. I was very comfortable. The apartment is clean and bright. Breakfast is included and is lovely. Fresh fruit every morning! I had a delightful stay.
Emily is a perfect guest, very respectful, reliable, quite, clean and super nice. It was a pleasure to have her in my guest room. She (and her family) is always welcome. Thank you very much for staying with me.
Wonderful,comfortable and very large room overlooking the Riverside Park
Staying with Monika was like visiting family,perhaps an Aunt .
Monika is very personable cheerful and a special host. She is available with any help you need especially trying to cope with the subway and bus.With her help it became very easy to navigate Buses and subway is very close-by. Our stay was way too short. Highly recommended.
Sharyl and Stan are super nice people and I was glad to be their host. They are very kind, respectful, reliable and they left my guest room super clean and tidy. We had a very good communication all time - via mail before their arrival and personally here in my place. Even to climb the stairs to the 5th floor didn't let them complain! It was my pleasure to have them here and I hope we will meet again. 5 starts and highly recommended! Thank you and a wonderful new year!
