New York Habitat was established in 1989 under the auspices of Founder and President Marie-Reine Jézéquel. Its French subsidiary company was opened with an office in Paris in 1996 and further developed with the South of France in 2001 and a new subsidiary company in London, U.K., in 2002.
The idea for the company came after recognizing the lack of options available to travelers who desired more personal accommodations than those provided in hotels. This is how New York Habitat designed a way to give travelers the feeling of what it is like to live independently in New York, Paris, the South of France or London, by arranging stays in quality furnished apartments.
New York Habitat is a full service real estate agency licensed in the United States by the State of New York. New York Habitat is not a property management company, nor is it merely an online platform for furnished apartment listings. Rather, we believe in providing a unique and personalized approach to finding an apartment.
When you choose to book with us, you will be assigned a personal agent who will help you at every step of the search to find the ideal accommodation for your party's size, within your price range and ideal location. We continuously update our apartment database with new properties, photos and availabilities, and personally visit and photograph the properties in each of our listings to ensure they are fit to rent and adhere to local property laws.
Additionally, New York Habitat is here to give you peace of mind after you book by remaining in contact for the duration of your stay, whether you're renting short or long-term. Should a problem arise with your rental, your New York Habitat agent and our Quality Assurance team will act as a liaison on your behalf with owners/property managers.
Our approach was and is unique, and has been embraced by the international travel community. Since its inception, the company has grown and expanded its services and clientele. Our team serves clients from around the world and can speak English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian and Portuguese.
