Reviews of this property
If you want to make your New York trip special, Elise´s cozy hut is the place to go! After 5 miunutes we already felt like family members. Elise is so nice and open-minded. Our bed was really comfortable, we slept well from the start. The flat is really clean and makes you feel at home immediately. Our breakfast (bagles with cream cheese and jam plus coffee) was delicious. She also has a great selection of teas if you are more into that. Elise had lots of fabulous tips, no matter what topic: Harlem food and restaurants (do not miss Taco Mix!) , shopping and not to forget planning a bike trip (awesome experinence). Harlem itself is a fantastic neighborhood today, we always felt safe and had a great night at the famous Apollo Theatre. The subway station is just some minutes away from the ap, so you are downtown quickly! We would always prefer Elise`s cozy hut to some fancy downtown hotel because in the end we sometimes felt like two real New Yorkers. When we come bacvk to New York we will surely check in at Elise`s and hope to see this amazing person and her wonderful ap again soon!
We had a great time in the nice flat of Elise in New York. The room is small but very comfortable and you can use the whole flat. The site of the flat is very good. Elise is a lovely host. She gave us a lot of good advises and we estimated the discussions we had with her.
Best wishes, Susanne and Peter
It was our first trip with wimdu - and a complete success.
Cozy hut is a good name for the home from Elise. The area is located northwest of Central Park and is well connected by subway. Supermarket and restaurants are within a few minutes. She's was very friendly and helpful to us. We feel us very well in her apartment. Your welcome round through her neighborhood has made us the same amount of fun. Thanks for your many tips that have our full schedule but still rounded. A bike ride we have to move to a next time. It was very hard for us after one week to say goodbye.
thank you for all ! We come back again !

We were in NY for 4 days and staying at Elise's apartment was really nice! She knows everything about the city and we really enjoyed her company! The position of the apartment is very good, the room is clean and comfortable! We'll definitely go there again!
Both my daughter and her studymate worked over one year to afford a trip of one week in New York. They had high expectations. Unfortunatly the apartment wasn't clean at arrival. Dirty dishes in the sink, things stuffed in every possible corner of the place. The host expressed her unsatisfied thoughts about both girls more than once As said by Elise, both girls were inmature (because they (17 years old) followed their parents rules not going outside at night and never ate at Mc Donalds for instance). I wonder who is inmature considering the fact this host was the one expressing the negative feelings about these both very grown up all the time?!? You might think the girls are to blame, but before their visit to NY they stayed with a host in Baltimore where they were part of the household (took their responsibilty) and had a very nice time. The woman, a teacher of kids the same age, even told our daughter and her friend they were very grown up in comparisson with US kids. Well, at least one thing is clear for Elise, which she spoke out loud as well, no kids anymore. Unfortunately a year of work for 5 nights New York has become a huge disallusion for both girls. I feel so sorry for them!
Lovely place to stay. The wifi username-when you stay there- is "Cozy Hut" and that pretty much sums it up. Beds sleep well. Elise's friendliness, tips & tricks immediately make you feel at home and make a stay in NY so much more enjoyable. We recommend this place.
We had a wonderful time at Elise flat in New York over new year 2014/15 and we can say that everything was absolutely fine. Elise as a wonderful person from A to Z:
As far as the flat is concerned (just 5 minutes away from Central Park North) it is situated just 3 minutes away from the subway and 1 minute away from the bus station and after a long day walking around New York it is like coming home, very familiar and easy going. We can highly recommend that address in New York and certainly Elise as a wonderful hostess.

Elise not only an amazing host, she is an amazing travel guide, a
kindred spirit, someone who you could discuss anything ranging from
gentrification to fashion. Every detail of my stay was made perfect. I cannot recommend her more. Lovely host, great neighborhood, warm home.
Cozy Comfort is the exactly right description for the apartment. We felt very much at home and liked to live in the friendly neighborhood. Bus and Subway are close towards city and also the Hudson Valley. There is a fabulous supermarket close by as well as some nice restaurants and bars. Elise is the perfect host: friendly, easy-going, extremely helpful and generous. We had a great time and recommend it.
Our host, Elise, is a wonderful warm person. She makes you feel directly at home. Her cozy hut, is absolutely very cozy indeed! I would highly recommend people to go and stay in Elise's cozy hut. Also the breakfast which was included was very tasteful. If we would return to New York, we would definitely try to stay with Elise again!
