  • Kids First Time in the City

    "We stayed at Melani's PH for a week. It was the kids (12,14) first time in the City. The apartment exceeded our expectations! The location is perfect - VERY close to the subway, great dining, grocery stores and Central Park. The outdoor space was wonderful to have. The kitchen is well equipped. We used all the coffee makers she had- the Keurig, the Nespresso machine and the French press (we are pretty serious about our coffee)! We cooked many meals there! Our routine was to have breakfast, go sight seeing and come back around dinner time, open a bottle of wine to enjoy outdoors while grilling. During that time, the kids got to "chill" after the long day sight seeing and walking. Melani provided a GREAT quality air mattress that was very easy to operate and very comfortable for one of the kids. The other slept on the couch and was said it was great! The bedroom mattress and pillows were also very comfortable making for very restful sleep to recharge for the next day. We absolutely loved staying here. Melani is a FABULOUS host. She is very accommodating and helpful with recommendations. This was a memorable vacation and the comfort of the stay made it all that much more amazing! Thank you Melani!!!"

  • Great place to stay

    "Melissa was an excellent host and explained everything from the start. She continued to check on us every so often to make sure there was nothing we needed. The apartment was safe and convenient to anything one could want, including the subway. It was easy to hail cabs just a few hundred feet from the door. The people in the building were very polite. There were two of us, but here was a fold out bed in the common room, so it could easily sleep more. I would go back!!"

  • Comfortable and convenient lodging in a safe and great neighborhood.

    "Perfect for our needs, but may not be so for everyone. We will definitely and happily return. Pros: The mattress is comfortable. The room is a nice size for two people, with ample dresser space, a large closet with more than enough hangers, and high ceilings. The apartment is walking distance from Central Park, Riverside Park, the 70th Street Pier, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Trader Joe's, Fairway Market, and Zabar's. The wifi. TV, coffee maker, and fridge all work. The two large windows let in a lot of natural light. The building was quiet during the week that we stayed. Cons: It's a 30-step walk-up, which didn't bother us, but could be a problem for some. The pillows were ridiculously thin, and to us, were useless. We provided our own. I suggested to the manager that they provide two feather pillows and two hypoallergenic pillows of good quality, and he said he would pass on my suggestion to the owner - so if you are at all fussy about pillows, inquire to see if they have improved the pillows since our visit. There are no outlets close to the bed, so if you like to use your electronics in bed while you charge them, you'll need to bring two six or eight foot extension cords, one for each side of the bed. We stayed during the winter, when the outside temperature was in the 20's and 30's. The heat for the apartment is provided by an old steam radiator which you must manually turn on and off. When it is on, the room gets too hot; when it's off, the room gets too cold, unless you regulate the temperature by cracking the window a little and letting the cold air temper the heat from the radiator. Even with the fluctuating outside temperatures, we were able to estimate how much we needed to open the window to achieve a comfortable indoor environment, but some people might not want to fuss this way to regulate the room temperature. The double hung windows open only from the top, so to open or close the windows, you have to stand on a chair. This was no problem for us, but could be a hassle for some people. Some tips: Trader Joe's and Fairway Market are usually crowded and sometimes miserable places to shop. There is a small neighborhood market, called Jubilee, on Freedom Place between 68th and 69th Streets - that market is almost never too crowded. Also, there's a CVS on the corner of 70th Street and West End Avenue, which carries a lot of staples like milk, juice, soda, cereal, snacks, and other essentials for apartment living."

  • Perfect Location, Perfect Place

    "This beautiful apartment is perfectly located on the Upper West Side - in the 70's, 1/2 of a block from Central Park and close to two subway stations. It is a very well-maintained and beautifully decorated apartment and very spacious, especially by Manhattan standards. The kitchen appliances, bathrooms, and everything are all first-class. They even have central air conditioning - not window units - which was great on the hot summer days we were there. Sheila and Bill were super easy to work with and very helpful in every way. They called to check-in mid-stay to make sure everything was OK and to see if we needed anything. We will definitely be back!"
