Welcome in my home - be my guest!

Please note: From January to March minimum stay is 30 nights to special rates - please contact me.

You stay in the spacious guest room in Harlem in my cozy 2-bedroom apartment.
I offer my guests a nice continental breakfast with fresh fruit, juice, coffee or tea.

The huge and pretty bright room has a full size bed (1.40m), chairs, table, dresser and clothes rail, lamps and heat/AC. There is also a chair/foldout 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 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 145/Broadway and 10 minutes walk to 145/St. Nicholas Avenue -it is a 20 minutes ride to Midtown).

I live close to Apollo Theater, Jazz and Music Clubs, Harlem Theater, Harlem Museum and many more.
The apartment is close to upper Broadway in Harlem, in a lively multicultural neighborhood with shops, restaurants and bars at your fingertips.

Sports- and nature lovers find lots of opportunities for walking, jogging, or to swim in a huge indoor-pool at Riverbank State Park.

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 am singing in the Peace of Heart choir and volunteering in an Off-Broadway theater. 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!

    Monika's place in Upper West Harlem is right next to the beautiful Riverside Park (great view from her apartment!) and has very easy access to both MTA bus stops and subway stations. Her place is very colorful, quiet, and comfortable to stay. She is sociable, outgoing, loves music, and was really kind providing me refreshing fruits salads in the morning and giving me several alternative tips for going to the LGA airports. Thanks Monika!! :)

    Wir hatten 10 Tage in NY und dabei eine schöne Zeit gehabt. Bei Monika haben wir uns willkommen und sehr wohl gefühlt. Morgens gab es die Möglichkeit zu frühstücken und so schon mal einen guten Start in den Tag zu haben.
    Die Verkehrsanbindung zu allen neuralgischen Punkten in Manhatten ist vom Appartment sehr gut. Mit der "1" ist man in etwa in 20 Minuten an der Südspitze Manhattens.

    An dieser Stelle nochmal vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft. Wir werden sicher nochmal wiederkommen.

    Monika has been the perfect choice when it came to decide where to stay in New York. Her flat is cozy and beautiful, pur bedroom was spacious and the bed really comfortable. She prepared the breakfast for us every morning and she was also there to chat with us and asking us how our holidays were going. The apartment is a couple of blocks from the red line of the subway, you just need to jump in and you're downtown real quick. I definitely recommend her and I hope to stay at her gracious flat again.

    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!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
