About The Owner

Retired NYC Public School teacher, now a full time 'back to my roots' Jazz musician (Berklee College of Music) living in the soul of New York - Harlem. In the past ten years I've seen Harlem grow to what it is today, and want to share it with the world. This is why I have decided to post my duplex apt on this site. I hope all my guests can get a taste of the Harlem culture during their stay with us.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2001

Why The Owner chose Harlem

I love Harlem for its Jazz history and hoping to further the tradition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend in this apartment. The owner was very friendly, we talked with him for a while. It is a very nice neighborhood to live in. We really enjoyed the roof terrace. We just had an issue with the toilet and the sink that we could solve quite easily!

Again, thanks to this apartment we had an excellent weekend!

We would book it again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful Place for a Family to Stay While Visiting New York

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 were thrilled with this warm 2 bedroom apartment. Bill was extremely gracious and accommodating, even when we arrived to the apartment about 3:00 AM. In fact he made sure we had warm food waiting for us when we arrived. The refrigerator and cupboards were stocked with food and the apartment was very clean. The neighborhood was very quite and we enjoyed walking around, exploring the shops all day and evening. Highly recommend visiting Papaya Seed for some delicious frozen yogurt! We can't wait to come back and stay here again.

Greate experience and wonderful Mr. Bill

  • 5 of 5
It's really a good experience staying in this clean, beautiful room for 3 nights. Bill gives us detailed orientation about restaurants, grocery stores and bus/train stations. He is kind and straightforward, with great patience. The bed is comfortable and the place is quiet, and cool. The Italian restaurant nearby is awesome. The neighborhood is much better than expected.

We left our MP3 player in the room after we checked out. I called Bill on the way to DC. 2 Days later, he sent the MP3 players to my home, together with two new findings, my headphone and the charger! Bill is a great person and I feel really honored to know him.

I really enjoyed staying here.

Loved the Location

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place for my family to stay, and Bill is an excellent host! Travelling with our 9 yr. old son, and 80 yr. old great-aunt, it was awesome having plenty of room for the four of us to have our own space, yet all stay in one place. SO much better than being in cramped hotel rooms!! We loved the neighborhood and had fun taking walks, playing in the park (less than a block away), and checking out the neighborhood restaurants and shopping. There are plenty of places close by to stock the kitchen with groceries and enjoy a few relaxed meals at the apartment, too!
The close and easy access to the buses and subways got us back and forth into Manhattan in minutes. The place was nicely furnished, clean, quiet, and comfortable. Bill was so thoughtful and helped us find some great places to go for both food and entertainment. He even stocked the apartment with some great Jazz CD’s…perfect soundtracks for hanging out in Harlem!

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here! It was very roomy, especially for New York. Having two levels allowed our teenagers to have some private space. The apartment was quite clean and was stocked with everything we needed. The host was very accommodating.
The location was convenient, an easy walk to the 116th subway, restaurants, and grocery store. We would definitely stay here again.

Home away from home for a New York city adventure

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for our family group of five to use as a base to explore NYC for two weeks. The subway was a short walk away and on an express line which meant only four stops to Times Square. Getting a 7 day unlimited Metro Card ($31) meant transport was economical and hassle free. The clean and welcoming Laundromat was literally just around the corner, and there was a well-stocked grocery store above the 116th St subway stop. The neighbours in our street were friendly and we always felt safe coming home, often around midnight. Bill was a great host, and able to provide assistance when required. Amal handled our booking, and was able to answer all our questions. Having two floors meant the "children" (ages 20, 20 and 17) had their own space and bathroom and were able to spread out, which was a bonus. The apartment was exactly as photographed. A great little find and one we'll return to when we, hopefully, return to New York. Thanks Bill and Amal.
