Marsha is a wonderful host and person. She was helpful whenever I had questions about the city and was a friendly person to talk to about anything. It was a great experience for my month long visit to New York. The apartment is clean, well maintained and in a nice area of Harlem near a lot of restaurants and shops. Pretty much anything you will need during your stay will be nearby. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed. You are also right next to the express trains (2/3 and 4/5) which will take you anywhere in the city fairly quickly. I would definitely recommend. Thank you Marsha!
Marsha was a perfect host. Kind, considerate, and thoughtful. I will definitely keep her first on my list for return visits to New York. Her apartment is clean, the bed is comfortable, and the room is spacious. There is plenty of closet space and drawer space for clothes. She even leaves room in the refrigerator for guests to keep their food. The neighborhood is wonderful, up and coming, full of life and great restaurants. Best of all is the 2-3 train, which is blocks away and takes you to 96th street on the UWS in just minutes.
Marsha is really nice, and I've had a wonderful stay here. By the way, very cute room.
It was a réal pleasure to spendthis week in NYC by Marsha home!
a very clean and well-decorated appartment, we felt like home !
Marsha cooked us a nice breakfast on Sunday, and gave us all devices as necessary for a nice stay in NYC.
Our bed was very comfortable, there were enough storage to put our things. The street is calm, so if you need to be sure to sleep well, don't hesitate to rent your room by Marsha !
Situated close to thé metro, it was very convenient for visiting NYC.
you can find excellent soul food restaurants in the corner (Sylvia's, Red Roodster), groceries,etc ...
Marsha is a wonderfull host, it was a real pleasure to meet you !
it was very convenient to rent a room with Marsha ; her confirmation was very quick, and we write and text us several times before our arrival; it was very comforting. she was waiting for our arrival at friday night, even if it was late
I would highly recommand marsha's room for the quality of the room and his host ! We would like to thank you, Marsha,for your warm welcome during our stay !
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Marsha !
Appartement tres propre et bien decoré, nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison !
Marsha nous avait préparé un petit dejeuner le dimanche, et nous a donné toutes les indications nécessaires pour notre séjour.
Notre chambre disposait d'assez de rangements pour toutes nos affaires, un matelas confortable, et la rue est calme, nous avons tres bien dormi toute cette semaine.
L'appartement est situé à deux pas du metro, ce qui fut tres pratique pour nos excursions dans NYC.
on peut trouver au coin de la rue toutes les commodités(epiceries, pharmacie, et d'excellents restaurants (Sylvia's, Red Roodster) où vous pourrez déguster la fameuse Soul food.
Marsha est une hôte exceptionnelle, ce fut un reel plaisir de te connaitre, Marsha !
c'etait tres pratique et rassurant de louer une chambre Airbnb Avec Marsha : elle a immédiatement confirmé notre reservation, et nous avons échangé plusieurs fois avant notre arrivée. elle nous a attendu pour notre arrivée alors qu'il etait deja bien tard.
je recommande vivement la location d un sejour chez Marsha, pour la qualité des prestations et de son hôte!
Lo hemos pasado genial en casa de Marsha. Nos recibió con una sonrisa y fue muy amable con nosotras durante toda nuestra estancia. Realmente nos sentimos como en casa!! Está muy cerca de Central Park y con el metro llegas en 10 minutos a midtown. El barrio es genial, recomiendo el Red Rooster ( pedid un Obamatini) y Sylvia's el famoso restaurante de soul food. Y, sobre todo, disfrutad de una ciudad como NYC!!
We had a great time at Marsha's place!! She was awesome!! We feel at home. The house is very clean, perfect location. Walking distance to Central Park and 10 minutes tube to midtown. The room is warm, quiet, comfortable, we had good rest. Harlem is a great neibourghood. I strongly recommend the Red Rooster ( live music every day and Obamatini drink) and Sylvia's for dinner. I would definetly come back!!! Thanks Marsha for everything!!
Marsha's apartment was very well located - close to the subway, and an easy walk to Central Park. Marsha wasn't in the country when I arrived, and her brother was going to be there instead, but due to what I assume was a small mix-up on arrival dates, he wasn't there either. However a neighbour kindly met me to give me the keys, everything was clean and ready for me, and once Chris arrived he was very helpful and welcoming. There wasn't any ac in the bedroom, but there was a fan so I was perfectly comfortable despite the unseasonably warm nights. Overall I was very happy with this apartment and definitely recommend it to anyone else.
Marsha was not home but her brother was a good host, very helpful and friendly. I loved the apartment and would stay again if I was in New York. Everything was as pictured and very easy access to buses and trains. I felt welcome and the bed was comfortable what more could you ask.

About the Host, Marsha
I am a trained opera singer who has sung throughout the USA and Europe, specifically Italy. I have also sung in Austria and have travelled to France and Germany. I speak Italian, French, and some German fairly well but my most proficient foreign language is Italian, then French, and my German ist nicht so gut! I am from the Southern part of the USA and I believe in "Southern Hospitality" and love to have guests in my home. So, if you are looking for a warm and inviting space then you have found the right host.
I enjoy foreign films, running stairs in various parks here in NYC, and visiting with friends.
The five things that I cannot live without is a clean bathroom, Cadbury Fruit and Nut chocolate bar, (I love the rum and nut, and coconut Ritter Sort), great bath products, high quality skin cream, and a breeze on a hot day in NYC.
I am from a professional family: my Mom is a nurse and my Dad is an engineer. I have two sisters one of whom works in the pharmaceutical industry, and the other who is an attorney. I went back to school and obtained a professional certificate in Orthopedic Extremities and Biologics with a minor in the Spine Specialty and was also Valedictorian of my class. When not singing, I run a medical device and medical matketing business.
My style of hosting is to make sure that my guest(s) are very comfortable and have everything that they need.
My life motto is "Everything and everyone is a part of my good and life supports my happiness and abundant success!" This can only be true if I am supportive of the good and happiness of others.....
