'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'

About Joyce Roquemore Hanly

I know so much about New York and I love sharing information with my guests and helping them learn their way around New York. I will help to make your stay fun, and productive. This is my former home. It is filled with family memorabilia, books, board games, stuffed animals and more. My property has lots of original museum quality Art Deco antiques and lots of charm. It is a fantastic environment to gather together with family and friends. Your stay at the Harlem Jazz and Gospel Getaway will be a memorable and enjoyable one.

Joyce Roquemore Hanly purchased this house in 2005

Why Joyce Roquemore Hanly chose Harlem

We love Harlem and it is so convenient to all the sites in New York. We are only two blocks to the express train to Times Square. It takes less than twenty minutes to get to Times Square. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. It is safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Mount Morris Park historic district, very quiet and neighborly. People say hello to each other on the street, a unique feature for New York.

What makes this house unique

The bedrooms are very private, quiet and large. Church bells ring on the weekends, birds sing in the garden. The kitchen is state of the art. There is a piano. I offer complimentary coffee, artisanal teas and biscotti.I currently offer a walking tour of Harlem to help you orient to the neighborhood and become familiar with the landmarks and local need to know locations. We also have a private driver with high quality pick ups from airports or driving tours of New York. Price upon request.

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 10 really enjoyed this house! The location is great - close to restaurants and some night life. Also very close to the subway. We always felt very safe both in the day and evening. Traveling by subway to other parts of the city was easy and convenient! The home itself is very spacious and immaculate! There was plenty of space for all of us. We had most of our meals out, but the gourmet kitchen and grand dining table would have made it very easy to make some wonderful meals here if you so choose. Joyce was very helpful and very informative. We would definitely hope to stay here again on our next visit to NYC!

Beautiful, spacious home/mansion

  • 5 of 5
We were six women renting the home and could not have been more pleased. The house is exactly as pictured on VRBO with lots of extras not pictured. Kitchen was well stocked with spices, coffees, teas, and other staples. We relaxed in the large, comfortable living room enjoying a view of the residential street. Very comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Every amenity was available except for hair dryers (bring your own). We were only a short couple of blocks from the subway entrance and traveled easily throughout city without any problems. In-home elevator was a nice perk after a long day of walking in the city. I recommend doing a walking tour of the neighborhood with Joyce at the beginning of your trip. She not only gave us the neighborhood history but also pointed out several good restaurants, nearby grocery and retail shops. We would gladly stay here again and hope to do so. One of the best VRBO homes any of us has ever stayed in.

The Best Birthday Ever

  • 5 of 5
We took our whole family (12) here to celebrate my 50th birthday. What an awesome time we had! Joyce was very accomodating and we had plenty of room to spread out or gather toghether. There was privacy when you wanted it, a t.v. room for watching movies, even a pool table. Everyone had a great time seeing New York at christmas time and staying in this huge house. The grandkids had plenty of space to roam and the area was beautiful in the snow. The subway was a short walk, and even with kids was not a problem. We always felt safe and people were very friendly. We loved disovering the "Harlem Shake" on our last day there. We were so glad we stayed here and made many family memories in New York and at the house.

Super house

  • 4 of 5
Great house and location. We were 11 people and there is heaps of space for all. We seated 16 for xmas dinner no problem. Joyce had house decorated for xmas and that was lovely. Very convenient to subway and we felt very safe day and night. We enjoyed jazz nights and a meal at Red Rooster. We were a bit surprised to see people come and go into downstairs office given that they (strangers) could access the house from that room. Other than that a great choice and a great location.

Owner's Response: I keep at art gallery on the premises with a very sophisticated clientele. There are no "strangers" coming and going except for the guests upstairs to whom I open my former home. My gallery has a separate entrance and a very discreet high end clientele. My property the 6,000 square foot home "upstairs" I gladly open up to guests I have never met. It is filled with museum quality art and Art Deco antiques. These guests had many strangers into my home so to speak. May I suggest these strangers are merely friends we haven't met. Everyone has a marvelous time in my former home, I have created wonderful memorable experience for more families and girl groups than I can count. By supplementing the rental with the gallery I am able to keep the price more affordable for all.

Fabulous Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at the Harlem Getaway! We were able to enjoy tasty meals with all 17 of us sitting around the ample dining room table. Having the logs waiting by the fireplaces made it easy to create the perfect cozy atmosphere. The piano in the living room served as the basis for our sing-alongs (accompanied by guitars and mandolin). All first floor living space and the lower level gaming and TV rooms ensured that everyone (from 15 months to 77 years old) could spread out and relax. The spacious bedrooms allowed people to have privacy and the peace and quiet needed to feel like they had a vacation.
