I stayed a month at Marsha's and she's been the sweetest. The appartement is beautiful, with a big room, very cozy. The apt looks exactly like in the pictures. It's near to everything, there's a lot of subway and bus stations. It's a very charming and secure neighborhood, really near to the Apollo theater, in the heart of Harlem. There's a lot of shops, and good restaurants, and there's the famous Sylvia's, one of my favorite place ever (it will become yours as well) Marsha is just an amazing women, and one of the greatest host I've ever met, probably the best! She's smart, funny, fascinating and will make sure you feel at home. She will give you tips and help you out when you need it. She has an amazing voice that will delight you ears. I met her brother too, and he's adorable. I definitely recommend it, because honestly, you won't find a better place to stay in all NYC, I mean it.

Marsha is very open, warm and helpful and the room is very comfortable and of a good size even for two people. The apartment is comfortably located in Harlem so that all important places of interest can be reached easily by subway. I enjoyed my one week stay a lot.

Marsha User Profile

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.....
