This apartment met our expectations. The description is in keeping with our experience... no unpleasant surprise. The owners welcomed us cheerfully and answered all our questions. They were also available during our stay. Thanks to its location, you can easily access all convenience stores and this area of Harlem is very pleasant. The subway is a 2 to 3-minute walk and will enable you to travel very easily.

Apartment is well-located, quiet, well-served and nice. Warm welcome. I enjoyed the garden in which I could eat, much appreciated given the lack of light in this basement apartment.
Only drawback: rental must be paid in cash only, which is not very convenient.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jun 05 2017

Thank you very much for you positive comments Marie Eve.
Unfortunately we are not able to accept credit cards at this time.
We are pleased that you found the garden apartment well-located, quiet, well-served and nice and we are always happy to offer all of our guests a very warm welcome!
In the US, it is customary to refer to the first floor apartment as the garden or street level. A "basement " also called the cellar in the US is generally under- ground. The garden apartment rental has full sized windows and you can step directly into the yard without stairs. Although newly renovated, these unique 1890's attached Brownstones have windows and doors in the back and front only. One special feature of this property is the tree filled yard which offers a shaded and a quiet serenity to ensure a good night's rest after a long day of visiting NYC.

Nice, quiet and well located apartment. It is spacious but unfortunately with a group of 6 you have to unfold the sofabeds each night and toilets are in the bathroom. Landlords are nice and welcoming.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Aug 16 2016

Thanks so much for your feedback.
Since there is enough space, most of our guests just leave the sofa beds open and they serve as large sofas during the day.
And yes, it's typical in the US - toilets inside the bathroom.... it may seem unusual for some European guests, but it is very common in the US to have the toilet inside the bathroom :)
It was a pleasure meeting all of you!

The apartment is perfectly located in a nice area close to Central Park and only 50 meters to Morningside park. There are several good restaurants close to the apartment that the owner recommended. The Metro is to very close that took us down to Midtown. The owner was very helpful for instance she arranged the transfer. The quiet area was perfect for our family with three teenagers.

The owner and husband very helpful
He took our bags in for us
The owner explained how things worked in the apartment to us
She left a map of the city
Had 2pages of info about shopping for groceries and food and also for bargain shopping for out of town visitors. She also told us about the subway and what tickets price woul suit us best
She booked a taxi for us when leaving
She was very very pleasant and a pleasure to deal with
She had info books on NY and NY State for us to use
I would recommend her apartment via Habitat to other friends vising New York
I do hope to return one day in the future

The location was perfect for our stay in NYC as close to Columbia University (walking distance), subways, parks and some great restaurants and bars; there were also nearby supermarkets. The apartment has everything you need for up to 6 people including a terrace and grassed garden at the rear, off the bedroom. Plenty of wardrobe space, lovely marble tiled bathroom and the kitchen has everything necessary with a large fridge. The only suggestion I would make is that a full sized ironing board is supplied - currently there is a small board that sits on a bench top. Besides heating and air con there are also fans in the bedroom and lounge which is preferable for me. The owners live upstairs and are available by email - once checked in they do not bother you but are available if you have any queries. Our stay was great and we would recommend booking this apartment and we will certainly keep it in mind for any future visit to NYC. This was our first visit to NYC and we felt very safe in this area and in this apartment.

Thank you for you kind comments and for being such lovely guests. We'll make sure there is a full size iron board for your next visit!

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Customer service is my highest priority. I try to ensure that my guests have the best possible apartment rental experience by providing efficient service and, a super clean, well equipped, convenient apartment.

Perhaps you misunderstood the sign in the apt. You may have thought the sign said do not use the a/c, but in fact, it only suggests that you kindly turn off the a/c when you leave the apt.

I leave a general note regarding recycle instructions and to please turn off the a/c when you leave the apartment, as well as tourist info and local restaurant suggestions etc. As a New Yorker who is concerned with climate change, I feel some responsibility to do my part. Never the less, under no circumstances would I interfere with the comfort of my guests!

As always I remain, determined to see that my guests have an Excellent/ 5 star experience!

The ground floor apartment with it's own entrance is lovely furnished, very clean and well equipped.

We, a family of three, felt comfortable and safe in this striving neighbourhood of lower Harlem with it's many Restaurants (even late at night). The windows and two doors of the apartment are well protected by sturdy iron bars. Our teenager slept pretty comfortably on the Futonbed in the spacious living room. The parents slept very well in the bedroom that is overlooking the private patio with garden chairs, table and fenced in lawn.

The owner's familiy is caring. They live in the same building and can be reached easily if one needs some quick advice. The apartment is close to the next subway station, although not on the express line.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
May 01 2014

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the NYC townhouse living experience. It's so kind of you to mention how clean and well equipped the apt is, and with a main subway line only 3 streets away, it's a good reason to choose our garden apartment rental.

Morningside is a great neighborhood near the prestigious Columbia U, Central Park and the Cathedral St. John the Devine; quiet yet full of amenities to suit your needs.

NYC is one of the safest cities, but for those who may have concerns it's great to know that we have managed to ease the worries and provide a worry free accommodation.

Our goal is to offer the best possible service to our guests.

We had 10 days here and it was very good. The apartment was clean and tidy and worked well for us. We had a couple of plumbing issues and the owner, who lived upstairs, sorted them out very quickly for us.

The location was good, being in easy walking distance of a good subway station and there were food shops close by too.

Review by: Michelle J.,

The apartment was perfect! The owner was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was very clean and had everything you could possible need and was so well organized, very detailed in everyday. The location was not a problem but at times a little tiring getting to downtown but this was only because I had my son with me and had to go up and down the subway with a stroller otherwise the location is okay.

The area the apartment is in is okay, the size of apartment, cleanliness and access to garden /terrace makes up for an extra subway ride. I would defiantly recommend this apartment. The only negative is the fridge, I am a very light sleeper and could hear the fridge whilst lying with my son in the living/futon area but as I slept in the main bedroom most nights this was not a problem as the bedroom is so quiet.

Thanks to Habitat for finding the property, Gisela was very helpful and professional.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

It was great having Michelle's family stay at our garden apt. NYC is a busy "subway riding" town, which does get a little tiresome when running around with a 3 year old.

As Michelle's family found, there are so many pro's staying in a real, non-touristic neighborhood apartment ... plus a soak in the whirlpool tub, a manicure/ pedicure (across the street), a stroll through Central Park or just sitting in our relaxing garden - are some great ways to end an exhausting day in the city!

The vacation rental was better than we'd thought. The photos let you foresee a clean and rather well equipped accommodation but it was better than on the photos. We were 6 and we had enough space for everyone. Very large bed in the bedroom and 2 very comfortable sofa-beds.

The subway was 2 minutes away and we could be downtown in 15 minutes. Central Park is also a 2-minute walk.

On top of that, the hostess is very nice and always available if needed.

Everything was very good. Maybe the futon bed in the livingroom was a bit to hard, so maybe it could have been better if I have had asked for en extra mattress. All of us really enjoyed our stay at this nice apartment and our kind accommodation owner. Next time we travel to NY we look forward to try to book this apartment.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Nov 29 2012

I am so happy that you liked the apartment despite the futon being a little too firm for your daughter. I would have gladly provided another mattress had I known. I appreciate your kind comments regarding myself and the apartment.

I understand that everyone's mattress preference varies from soft to firm. The living room futons are the highest quality and thickest mattresses available. They have been chosen with great care to try and accommodate a majority of people.

It is good that you were able to enjoy your stay during Hurricane Sandy, when most hotels had no electricity or amenities our apartment was able to serve you well.

Glad that you're coming back. We'll look forward to your next visit!

Thx a million

Michele

Extremely beautiful apartment, perfectly equipped and appointed, clean and quiet. The garden area is undeniably a plus. The owners were perfect: welcoming, always ready to help out to make your stay smooth whilst remaining discreet. All this greatly helped make our stay very enjoyable.

If the apartment location seems at first a bit far from Lower Manhattan, the subway very close to the apartment wipes out any drawback.

In a word, I highly recommend this vacation rental.

The apartment was clean and well maintained and had all the necessary amenities.

Thanks for providing the service and ease of transaction. The biggest factor that made me choose New York Habitat was the ability to reserve an apartment using a credit card payment

Everything about my experience with New York Habitat has been wonderful. I thought the website was fantastic with lots of detail about the apartments and it was a very easy website to navigate.

[My contact at New York Habitat] was extremely helpful and very quick to answer all my questions. The whole process of finding an apartment and acquiring it was unbelievably easy.

The apartment [Uptown, New York] was excellent, and actually better than the photos on the website showed. The owners had many helpful brochures inside the apartment for things to do in New York, and I was extremely pleased that they had provided information on things in the local area as well which was very helpful. [The owner] was very accommodating with any request that we had and we could not have asked for better service.

I would not hesitate to use NY Habitat again and in fact have been singing your praises to all my friends!

We were happy with the apartment we stayed in, there was very little to complain about... the only thing that we felt was missing was (especially for girls!): a full length mirror.... clock/radio/cd player..... other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The landlord was helpful and we would definitely consider staying there again.
