About the Homestay

Cosmopolitan Cosy

SPECIAL: I offer long term stay (30 days minimum) from January to April for special price, feel free to ask!

Welcome in my home - be my guest!

You stay in a spacious guest room in Harlem in my cozy 2-bedroom apartment, which I occasionally offer to guests from overseas.

The private room has a full size bed (1.40m), with enough space for an additional bed.
The room includes free Wi-Fi.

As my guest(s), you will share with me my well equipped kitchen, the dining/living room (with TV) and the bathroom.
My guests always find toast, butter and jam for breakfast as well as fresh fruit, coffee and tea.

My apartment is located at the 4th floor (sorry no elevator) in a quiet and well-kept townhouse at Riverside Drive, close to Hudson River and Riverbank State Park. The apartment is close to several major subway- and bus lines (5 minutes walk to the subway, 20 minutes ride to Midtown).
Sports- and nature lovers find lots of opportunities for walking, jogging, or to swim in a huge indoor-pool at Riverbank State Park.
The apartment is close to upper Broadway in Harlem, in a lively multicultural neighborhood with shops, restaurants and bars at your fingertips.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have or give information or advice about New York City.
I offer my guests my little free App that recommends places, events, stores, information about the subway system, where do you find food stores and more in the area. This are my personally tips for New York you maybe don't find in the guide books. It is still in progress with help of my guests. You will find it in Android and Apple store and works offline after the download. This App is not public and only for my guests, for safety you will get a special code.

I am originally German and working as freelance photographer and writer. I know New York City well and I am glad to support my guests with information, tips and advice if needed.
I would like to know a little bit about yourself before booking, please send me some personnel information, thank you!

Please note:
- I offer special rates for staying up to 8 nights
- special rates from January to April for minimum 30 days visit
- special rates for long term stay from January to March (for example during an internship)
- for a 3rd guest I charge extra 20 USD per night (sorry, no 3 guests from January to April)

Please feel free to ask, thank you!

    Ganz wunderbar - awesome!
    Eine Woche waren wir in New York und haben uns bei Monika unglaublich wohl gefühlt.
    Die Wohnung und das Zimmer sind sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, der Holzboden hat uns an zuhause erinnert. Wir haben immer gut und ruhig geschlafen, uns sehr über das leckere Frühstück gefreut, hin und wieder selbst gekocht - und uns morgens und abends hervorragend mit Monika unterhalten.
    Sie ist eine sehr herzliche, sympathische und entspannte Gastgeberin, die immer ein offenes Ohr und gute Tipps für ihre Gäste hat. Sie hat sogar eine eigene App gestaltet mit vielen praktischen Hinweisen für New York.
    Wir kommen gerne wieder!

    It's really been a pleasure to stay with Monica! Great breakfast and complementary fruit salad every morning. Helpful advise about how to discover the big apple. Also, the location is very close to the subway and bus stations around. Definitely coming back next time when we will be visiting New York!

    Feels like home!
    Monika's place is exactly what I was looking for. A very nice apartment, a huge and cozy private room, very clean and bright. The apartment is very close to the subway, ideal for a stay in New York. We only spent three nights at Monikas's place, but we really enjoyed how she took care about us. We felt very welcome. Monika knows New York very well, was always kind and friendly and had always time for us. A nice breakfast was a very good add on every morning. Highly recommended!
