The West Townhouse - Furnished Apartments on the Upper West Side
Always Welcome Here
Our paper guest book is filled with many, many nice words and "thank yous" from those who took the time to describe what was like to experience New York in our townhouse.
We would like to thank them all for staying with us, bringing such diversity & excitement, and making ours an international house.
As the space here is limited we have selected comments with different approaches, in order to help you to know what to expect of your stay.

" Monica,
We can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. The studio was perfect, so clean and attractive. We loved the neighborhood and how close it was to the subway, and just 2 blocks from the greatest park in the world!
As apprehensive first time New York visitors, your place helped us know that we will be back! "

" Dear Monica & Larry,
You have only just started this venture and already the accolades are rolling in - and right so! Your immediate response to our questions by both phone and email was great and efficient.
Our apt is thoughtfully furnished and well equipped with lovely linens and bath towels.
The location is great, quiet and safe, close to the centre and the sights! And with a lovely array of restaurants to choose from on your doorstep. We wish you continued success.

" Monica,
Your place is fantastic. It tops any hotel in the city. I have stayed all over the world in Bed & Breakfasts and other guest houses. Your sense of style and decoration is fabulous. The flowers were a lovely touch.
I will be back for sure and will recommend your lovely home to my friends."

" Monica was one of the best hosts that I've met and we really enjoyed our stay here. The house was absolutely beautiful and all appliances were new. The fresh flowers also added a great touch to our stay.
My aunt came from Korea and stayed with me here and now she has the preconception that all NYC houses look so European and romantic - she's spoiled!

Your townhouse is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Thank you so much for all of your assistance not only while we were in New York, but also the many questions that you answered before and after our trip… you two are truly great hosts!!!! This is hands down the best place to stay in the entire city. We will be back soon and often. Honestly we feel like we have found a home away from home. "

" Monica & Larry,
I feel I've found a home away from home; one I shall certainly return to in the not-to-distant future.
Thank you so much for your care and hospitality."
Steve Karman

" Partir c'est mourir un peu." So we are a little bit sad to leave NY and your home, your hospitality, your kindness. Because of the care for our children and grandchildren we hadn't enough time left to meet each other - to play the piano, etc.
Next time!
