Harlem Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Garden, Sleeps 4. Non Smoking.

Beautiful apartment, beautiful garden, great location! The apartment was recently renovated and includes everything you would expect in luxury accommodation. Directly above four Subway lines - 10 minutes to mid-town. Near parks, sports club and large 24-hour supermarket. Spacious, fully furnished kitchen with ice maker and dishwasher. There's is no smoking in the apartment or the garden.

We constantly update our calendar so you can see if dates are free for your trip.

Payments: Deposit payments and prepayment of rent may be made by credit card. If you wish to pay the rent in advance, we request that you make these payments before leaving home. When credit card companies see a large debit away from home they often block your card.

The House: This beautiful apartment is on the ground floor of a five floor Brownstone. The house was built in 1888 as a single family house -- five floors plus a cellar! Those were big families back then. During those years, this garden apartment was the kitchen and informal dining room for a very extended family.

The entire row was built at the same time. It was built to match the row just north of the house. The area was made into the Sugar Hill Historic District in 2003. The landmark status assures that the area will continue to improve and that the homes, over time, will be restored to their original splendor.

The Neighborhood: Sugar Hill and Hamilton Heights have long been desirable neighborhoods. Hamilton Heights is named for Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton's country home, The Grange, was located on his estate just south of 145th Street. Today The Grange is part of the National Parks system and can be visited at the north end of St. Nicholas Park.

During the Harlem Renaissance, African Americans made their mark on NYC as they had never been permitted to do so before. And when they could afford it, they wanted to buy a brownstone up on the hill -- everything would be sweet then -- thus - Sugar Hill.

A Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 10 days during May. We booked the apartment after reading all the amazingly positive reviews for the place – and they were spot on. After staying the previous week on the East Side - in a more expensive apartment that was the size of a shoe box – to come here was a revelation. The apartment was spacious, spotlessly presented, the host’s attention to detail impressive and there were plenty of added extras including a full kitchen with all mod cons including a dishwasher, a coffee maker (with coffee), a large screen TV, free wi-fi and a private garden that all helped to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable.

The owner Don was friendly and the perfect host for we four newbies to New York – he provided us with all the information, directions and tips on what to see that we needed. When one of our party went down with a foot problem and had difficulty walking, Don was soon at the door with a walking stick and contact details for his own family doctor which were greatly appreciated.

The apartment is in a great location near the subway, cross town buses, supermarkets and historical sites such as Alexander Hamilton’s (George Washington’s aide-de-camp) home which is now a museum and well worth visiting. The apartment is also close to two great New York experiences - the famous Apollo Theatre (check out amateur night – its something else) and Yankee Stadium – go Yankees! Thanks to Don’s friendliness and generosity, and his beautifully presented apartment - staying here was a great New York experience in itself.

Three of us stayed at this apartment for a week from the end of March through the beginning of April 2014. From the moment we got out of the cab, we were quite surprised about how the place really looked, as the picture of the building is a bit deceiving. They did a good job in taking a good angle of the building from across the street so just be advised that it does not look that good from the exterior.

The unit itself is the bottom unit of a larger brownstone that the owners live in. For New York, the unit is quite large and it is a true two-bedroom unit that has been renovated. The bedrooms are quite spacious as well and very well appointed. One bedroom has one queen bed with clean linens and the other bedroom has two twin beds also with clean linens. The place is well kept but the living room furniture could stand to be steam cleaned, as there were noticeable stains on the chairs and couch.

The kitchen is a wonderful and spacious space that is also very well appointed with dishes, spices, and even some coffee! There is a full sized refrigerator and dishwasher in great working order. The bathroom is a good size and is extremely clean and looks pretty newly renovated. There is also a small patio to the rear of the unit but due to the raccoons and stray cats, it is pretty much an unusable space. But it was not an issue for us because it rained a lot during our stay.

For the price, it is really a great space to rent. As far as the location, we never felt unsafe at all. There is a market a block away and train station a block away. But it is a trek if you want to hang out in midtown Manhattan because it is located at 145th street.

The owners are very good communicators and the deposit was very reasonable. I would have given five starts if it were not for a couple of things: the walls are pretty thin and you could hear the people upstairs pretty clearly; and there were strange bugs that were in the apartment and in the master bedroom - centipedes I think - which I got several bites from. Hopefully the owners will address this issue.

This is a lovely space to rent that we would recommend to others.

Perfect - could not be bettered!

As a family of four (2 adults and 2 teens) this was the perfect place to stay in NYC. Jim and Matt were extremely welcoming and hospitable and clearly keen for their guests to enjoy New York. The apartment itself was exactly as described. It was spacious and immaculate - very comfortable and incredibly well equipped. The situation was ideal with a choice of subway lines nearby, local supermarkets and a selection of restaurants and takeaways on hand. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long days sightseeing/shopping. Would definitely stay here again if we return to NYC and would recommend it 100% to family and friends.

Splendido!

  • 5 of 5
Che piacere passare un weekend a New York e sentirci come a casa nostra in questo splendido appartamento ad Harlem.

L'appartamento stesso e' esattamente come le foto - camere da letto, bagno, cucina, sala da pranzo, salotto ed il giardino - tutto super sistemato, spazioso, tranquillo e pulitissimo!

Il punto e' numero uno! La metropolitana e' sotto casa e con poche fermate sei al centro di Manhattan. Non c'e' bisogno di taxi. Abbiamo girato dappertutto e ad ogni ora con solo una Metro card di $30. Altre comodita' sono vicinissime - ristoranti di ogni genere, negozi, mercatini e passeggiate caratteristiche.

I proprietari, Jim e Matt, sono stupendi, amichevoli, rispettosi, disponibili e attenti ad ogni nostra esigenza.

Non vedo l'ora di tornare!!

Our best decision in NYC was to stay here .

  • 4 of 5
When we booked an apartment in Harlem , we weren't sure if we had made the right decision . Even the driver taking us to the apartment questioned our decision . It turned out to be a great decision .
The apartment was perfect for our young family of 4 and to experience a neighbourhood feel that you can't get in a hotel in Times Square - was priceless . The owners were super helpful and the access to the subway was very handy . I recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a great New York experience.

My friends Anna, Lynn and I stayed in this fabulous apartment. All the previous reviews say it all......this is a wonderful place to stay. Matthew and Jim are so nice and make you feel so welcome. The apartment itself is beautiful, very well furnished, very clean, spotless actually and spacious. What you see in the pictures is what you get and more. I can’t say enough good things about this apartment. The subway is on the same block and a short ride to anywhere you want to go in NYC. Lots of great restaurants nearby too. We went to the Red Rooster on Lennox one night. It was excellent and so close to “home”. Staying at this apartment helped make our holiday in New York perfect! I miss it already. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks again for everything. I absolutely loved every minute :) See you soon. Piera
