Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. If you want to stay in a neighborhood and room with some history and character, this is for you. Sara and her family are a delight. A subway line straight to Central Park, midtown, and downtown is less than a minute walk from the front door. The neighborhood was safe and charming. We would do it again without hesitation.

Beautiful room in hospitable home

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and her family were lovely to meet and very accommodating! The room and bath were very comfortable with all the amenities I could ask for--I was especially grateful for the A/C. I appreciated the morning coffee, access to storage in the fridge, proximity to the train, restaurant recommendations for nearby, come/go as needed access, flexible scheduling, hot shower and soft bed. The room was very spacious with plenty of outlets, privacy, and a lovely little library. I would definitely stay again when visiting the Harlem/Morningside Heights area.

Great Place to Stay

Very enjoyable stay, Sara & JJ are wonderful hosts with a great family. The room was very clean and had a "down home" feel. We would absolutely stay there again.

Awesome Experience

  • 4 of 5

I was leary of booking this type of accommodation because i thought of the potential "nightmare" that it turn out to be. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! Everything was great ... it really felt like home, so much so, we hated to leave. My only suggestion is a larger, more visible trashcan inside the room, an ironing board and a small "dorm-sized" refrigerator inside the room.

The extra touches of the wi-fi, pamphlets with area attractions, etc ... were nice too.

Nice to be in a beautiful heritage home . Meeting Sara was a delight . At times were woken up by the very cute boys footsteps above in the early morning . Didn't last too long . Nice mixed neighbourhood. Everything you need close by .

Magnifique! We really enjoyed our stay for our 3-day NYC trip.

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! The quick walk to the train made getting everywhere in the city very easy.

Sara was so sweet about our late night arrival, and everything was laid out and ready for us. Jacques was très gentille.

We came back to the house to rest between one adventure-filled day, and slept in a little the next two because the house and bed were so comfortable.

We'd come back soon and often if we could.
