We were excited and overjoyed at the opportunity to purchase and renovate it, because of the changing neighborhood.

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❤️❤️

Great apartment! (June 7-13, 2018)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three enjoyed all the comforts of home at this apartment. We found the neighborhood very charming, and convenient to transportation so no need for a car. It was nice to take the subway wherever we needed to go, and then escape the rat race to come home to a quiet place to rest. Thank you Golda and Michael for helping to make our visit to NY a memorable one!

Fantastic flat with easy access to public transit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Michael and Golda's immaculately clean and well-appointed flat. We had easy access to public transit and saw all of the sites in NYC we wanted to see. Our hosts were gracious and helpful, and we highly recommend their lodging.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Golda and Michael you thought of everything. And everything you told us was "on point". We didn't need a car; the 100/101 buses took us everywhere if the Subway #1, 2, A or C didn't. We left early in the morning and came home late at night some days to a neighborhood that was lit, busy and safe. When we came home at mid-day, we could take a quick peaceful nap and prep for our evening after we fixed some great meals from food we bought at the local grocery store. We are absolutely thrilled that you and your brownstone represented our first VRBO experience. Thank you for your style, thoughtfulness, professionalism and spirit. We shall return.

Owner's Response: Hi Judy & James!! We're so happy to hear from you. We're super happy to hear that you both had a great experience while in New York. When you arrived, you guys were so convinced that a car was the way to go. You folks went all over and we're so happy to know that you found your way around using the New York City transit. You were both super troopers. Judy it was great seeing your energy and determination in accomplishing places to visit on your to do list. James Michael says hi, and that he understands.. Lol! Thank you both for choosing to stay at our home, and congrats on your anniversary. We hope to see you both again. Michael & Golda
