Why Golda and Michael Matthews chose Manhattan

We were raised in the neighborhood, and had been looking to purchase a brownstone in the area for a few years, and we finally settled on this property. We were excited and overjoyed at the opportunity to purchase and renovate it, because of the changing neighborhood. It took almost 2 years, and it is finally complete for us and you to enjoy and call home. We hope you, our guest love it as much as we do, when they come to visit.

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❤️❤️

Clean and friendly

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Gilda were terrific hosts. They greeted us upon arrival and made sure that we were comfortable and knew all we had to know about the apartment. It was quiet, clean and very inviting. I have stayed in other properties in NYC and this one - by far - was the best. I would definitely stay here in the future and encourage any would be travelers to choose this property.

A quiet haven in a bustling, busy, nosiy city.

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Golda have thought of everything you need to relax while enjoying your time in New York. Tip, Michael is great with Uber but Golda is the expert for the Subway. They met us when we arrived and made us feel like part of the family. We had many interesting chats with Michael about New York and particularly their neighbourhood. They gave us great advice on where to go and what to see. The apartment is so comfortable, spacious, fresh and quiet. It is very well maintained and clean. The washing machine and dryer were so helpful in keeping on top of things. Thankyou so much, you are two wonderful people.

Wonderful retreat amid the hustle and bustle of NYC!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property! Our experience was positive right from our initial inquiry through check-out. Golda and Michael are gracious hosts who met us upon arrival giving us a thorough run down of their home, and armed us with a trove of information to make our stay as relaxing as possible. We were able to try two of the restaurant recommendations (the Grange and Il Café Latte) both of which were scrumptious. The home is like a cocoon in the busyness NYC is and getting to relax here after a day of visiting the myriad sights the city has to offer is a bonus. We look forward to returning in the future. Thank you Golda and Michael for a memorable stay!

Beautiful and CLEAN

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four from Vancouver, Canada who were very happy with our choice. We rent through VRBO globally very frequently and would rank this property as one of our top picks.

Spacious for New York, well stocked and modern kitchen, nice bed linens and towels, lovely patio, safe neighbourhood, access to transport - bus and subway. Having a washer and dryer was an added bonus. Other nice touches were - coffee, tea and laundry soap was provided.

Also can't say enough nice things about our hosts - from quick booking to a great check in and their warmth and hospitality. Thank you.

Our teens loved the area and are sad to leave - that should tell the readers something. Will recommend to others in a heartbeat !

Owner's Response: Hi family, thank you all so much for staying with us and writing such a great review. It was great meeting each of you. We always try to take the time to say hi to our guests and help them out with directions and answer any questions they may have to get them situated. It's very important to us that our guests enjoy their stay with us. Coffee and tea are the must haves on any travel and everything else is extra. With that said we enjoy great coffee and tea so an expresso machine in the unit is a must.(We're coffee drinkers!!) , so I'm happy to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves. It was our pleasure meeting your family. Thank you all for staying at our home and we hope to see you all again. Michael & Golda
