Guestbook comments from the manager

Great apartment, exactly as described in the ad and photos. Clean, well-equipped, well-situated (two subway stations 5-10 mins walk which go anywhere you'll want to go). Strongly recommended! PS also strongly recommend Amy Ruth's - just what we needed when we arrived!

INSIDE: clean, spacious, well equipped, cozy, OUTSIDE: construction site

  • 4 of 5
This Apt is situated in 132nd in Harlem, short walking distance to the Metro (express 2/3 line takes 15 minutes downtown). It's a clean 2 room basement Apt. The sleeping room (streetside) has a large TV (very few channels actually work), sofa, desk, lot's of cabinet space and a very comfortable bed. It's a nice cozy room. The entrance / dining / kitchen room is bigger, has another sofa, a little dining table and a typical US open kitchen area with a fridge, coffee maker, toaster, stove and sink unit. All is well furnished and equipped. There's also a washing machine with dryer. Lot's of space and fully working. There's not a second TV set as seen in the picture. All lighting is a bit dark and comfortless, makes it difficult to read. There's no nightstand with light at the bed, so you cannot read in bed. No carpet and the floor is a bit cold, so maybe bring your own or buy slippers. The bathroom is clean.
Within a short walking distance you'll find lot's of supermarkets, a bunch of restaurants and a couple of bars for a drink. The nicest ones are on Lenox Ave just around the corner. Corner Social (321 Lenox) is very nice and always busy. Tio Luca (421 Lenox) is calmer and a super last stop before home, only 1 block away.
The area is safe and we never felt unsecure, althought some funny people around, especially late at night. But this is Harlem. Some Houses in the street are left alone and all seems a bit dark and deserted. It's extremely calm and quiet at night, a guarantee for a good nights sleep.
The only thing what really irritated us, was that one day after our arrival the cellar underneath the Apt as well as the first floor obove us and the backyard was turned into a heavy construction site, starting very noisy work from 8am. This made it impossible to sleep in. From day to day we had workers (very polite) asking to go through our Apt in order to work in the backyard construction site. So we had to leave each day early in the morning, which was ok, because we wanted to explore the city anyway. During the day when the work was going on, the front door was wide open even when we returned in the evening, so that was a bit of a lack of security. But nothing ever happend. The last 3 days there was a very heavy smell of paint in the Apt made it nearly impossible to sleep at night and during the entire stay the entrance area was used as a garbage dump. As we only paid 1700 for 2 weeks and did not use the Apt during the day, we overall liked it. Thank you!

2 of us stayed for 4 nights, thought it was great. Good location only a few blocks from a main subway station and lots of shops. Tons of room, a luxury for Manhattan! One night we had trouble with the wireless, but it was rectified as soon as we mentioned it. Went to one of the nearby bistros the owners recommended and loved it - Yatenga cafe, try it out.

An OK place if you are looking for something simple. Forget the "Garden" part of garden apartment - its a basement. There is no back yard garden, more half construction, half overgrown/abandon plot. Shower and toilet are a bit of a tight squeeze. Still if you are looking for a simple place to sleep and shower it was fine for me.

My daughter and I stayed at the apartment for just under a week while moving her to school.
The apartment was clean, spacious and close to all amenities. We always felt safe in the area, even coming home late at night.
The owner and property manager were both friendly, easy to get in touch with and very helpful.
They did up a package outlining the cities hot spots and must sees which included their favorite restaurants, coffee shops and pub picks, as well as transportation options, shopping and tourist attractions. This came in very handy as we were from Canada and did not know the area at all.
We will definitely stay here again! Thanks Laurence and Claudia.

Home away from home/ Me casa lejos de casa/ Minha

  • 4 of 5
It was so good being in this home for holidays, it was very clean, enough space when you are with litters ones and the neighborhood... people are so friendly and nice! Great short time! It was everything like the pictures and describes.
The only think for us with little kids and for short stay it was far away from our program.. new york with strollers? and two … not really practical, because you have stairs to use the public transport so… you always need a cab, but with this kind of rental its ok no problem with the money.
So if to spend short time with stroller its a little far away but still a good option and to spend short time without litters kids is just perfect!

it was perfect! the apartment is perfect!

Pasamos super bien en este apartamento, está limpio, bien cuidado, la cama es cómoda, limpia, el sofá cama pusieron dos nuevos, la cocina espectacular todo funciona bien, pero como fuimos con dos niños chicos y con cochecito… era un poco lejos de las actividades que habíamos planeado, y ademas fuimos por pocos días, así que necesitamos siempre un taxi porque para usar el transporte publico hay que usar escaleras y con cochecito se vuelve una tortura, igual como el costo de a estadía esta bien podes perfectamente pagar taxi para hacer todo. Nos gustó mucho además había espacio para los niños. El un súpermercadito lo tenés a media cuadra… y caminando un poco mas hay muchísimos negocios, la verdad que me gustó y los vecinos súper amables! divinas personas!

Bem legal! adoramos ficar nesse apartamento, muito bem cuidado, bem limpo, a cama confortável, os sofa-camas estavam novinhos. Tem mercado perto, os vizinhos eram bem simpáticos, sempre sorrindo.
Se for com carrinho de criança é um pouco chato andar em transportes públicos porque tem escada e no ônibus vc tem que fechar o carrinho para subir então é melhor usar o taxy, que ñ custa caro, e como a estadia também esta bem em conta da pra fazer. A noite o taxy custo do teatro até la acho que 20-30 dólares e durante o dia é bem mais porque o trafico é muito. Nos adoramos e nos sentimos em casa!

Perfect getaway apartment for an Excellent Price

  • 4 of 5
It was my first visit to New York , and being new to US as such I wanted a place which is not so expensive and yet comfortable and accessible. I was with a friend, and it was exactly what we both expected.
PROS :
- We liked that the place was well maintained, and had basic utility items
- It has a backyard, less maintained, but still a nice open space.
- Easy accessibility to places, and only few stops away from Central Park.
- Claudia was very helpful
CONS :
- Entrance is a tad small, but even here its the classy new york apartment .. where it gets big once you are inside ..

Here are a few pointers if you want to make the best out of your stay here :
1. If you are coming from LGA airport , you can get a direct shuttle from and to here. ( It drops you only 2-3 streets away from the block)
2. The place is better for a group of 2 or more, but even if you are single and the budget allows, you would enjoy the quiet and yet lively place.
3. A 7 / 30 day unlimited metro pass is helpful . there are two stations at 131 / 125st , but make sure you're not into the express shuttles and skip stations.
4. Plan your day in advance and keep aside 30-45 mins of commute one way to lower Manhattan.

If I am lucky to visit New York again, I will definitely choose to stay here once more.
