About Tom Sanford

I (Tom) live upstairs at 105 Hamilton Place with my wife Alex and our two little kids, Cecily and Simon. I am a painter and work from home which means if my renters need anything they need only ring my doorbell and I am happy to help.

Tom Sanford purchased this studio in 2010

Why Tom Sanford chose Manhattan

My wife and I have lived in Harlem since 2002, and my history with the neighborhood began in the mid 1990s when I attended Columbia. We have loved the convenience and character of the neighborhood for years and feel very lucky that we were able to acquire our little townhouse which gave us the room to start our family in Hamilton Heights, Harlem.

What makes this studio unique

The cuban coffee at El Rey del Sandwich is superb. Perhaps you will have one after an early morning swim or a few sets of tennis at Riverbank State Park before you take a short stroll through City College's beautiful campus, past Alexander Hamilton's historical home and then the Royal Tenenbaum's house to the Convent Avenue Baptist Church. But there are so many ways to spend a morning in Harlem. And of course if you can just hop on the subway and the world's greatest city is your oyster!

Loved it!!

The studio is perfect for a couple or even a family with a small child! Tom was a great host and everything you could need was a small walking distance away!

Fabulous cosy space!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a pleasant stay here!

The property is super modern, a big open space and you feel completely at home.

As a plus, the bed is super comfortable!! You are guaranteed to have a great night's sleep before another big day ahead.

Only slight downfall was how much you can hear from upstairs - it didn't disturb us much, but most mornings we would wake up to someone walking around, cleaning/moving furniture etc. This wouldn't start until 7.30/8am so it wasn't a big deal!

Tom is a wonderful host and was really helpful by answering any questions about our stay and the city.

We would definitely recommend staying in this property, and we hope to return again soon!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment. It is well situated to subway lines that can get you anywhere you want to go quickly. We enjoyed exploring the nearby Upper West Side especially. My wife and I are big Seinfeld fans and there were several notable locations very close by so that was a plus. Tom gave great arrival instructions and was very helpful and understanding when we hit some snags in our departure. I would definitely not hesitate to stay here again!

Very reliable, nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Tom is very organized and timely with his rental. He also was so kind as to hold our bags until the room was officially ready for check-in. We didn't have any issues with the room, it met our needs for a nice clean place to stay.

Amazing and comfortable trip / Wunderschöner und unkomplizierter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tom's appartment was all around amazing and uncomplicated. It was clean, well-prepared and big enough to stay for one week. Moreover it was possible to use the refrigerator and the microwave, so it was possible to eat breakfast at the appartment. 5 minutes from the appartment there are a few deli-stores and a bigger supermarket to find a lot of food :)

Wireless internet worked without any problems.

Also the connection to the subway was perfect. we were able to reach two different lines in round about 5 minutes and it took only 15 minutes to reach Downtown.

Before and during our vacation we stayed in contact with Tom and he was always kind, friendly and answered very quick.

All around we enjoyed our stay and looking forward to come again and stay at Tom's.

Unser Aufenthalt in Tom's Appartment war rundum super und unkompliziert. Das Appartment war sauber, sehr schön für uns hergerichtet und groß genug, um dort eine Woche zu bleiben. Darüberhinaus konnten wir durch die Nutzung des Kühlschranks und der Mikrowelle auch mal dort Frühstücken oder einen Kleinigkeit zu Abend essen.

Das WLAN hat einwandfrei funktioniert und wir konnten von dort aus viel nachgoogeln, suchen und Kontakt halten.

Weiter war auch die Anbindung an die Subway klasse. Wir hatten die Möglichkeit zwei verschiedene Linien innerhalb von 5 Minuten zu erreichen. Die Fahrt nach Downtown hat nur ca. 15 Minuten gedauert.

Der Kontakt zu und mit Tom hat immer einwandfrei funktioniert, sowohl während als auch vor unserem Besuch. Er ist sehr nett und freundlich und hilfsbereit. Er hat immer sehr schnell geantwortet.

Alles in allem hatten wir einen tollen Aufenthalt und würden auch gerne wieder kommen.
