This house was build with a lot of love and care to be a home for my family. We ended up moving to Hawaii right after it was built. It is a special place of beauty and harmony and I am sure anyone staying here will be very happy and satisfied.

This is not an ordinary rental, this house is an oasis of positive vibrations. It was build with all eco friendly organic materials. It has amazingly non toxic environment for NYC and is perfect for any conscious traveler...

nice stay in Manhattan

We had a very nice stay in this beautiful appartment, well furnished, spacious, agreeable, cosy,
At 300 hundred meters from the subway ,a very good quality-price ratio, to recommend.
We were welcome by the intendant , Ousmane, at a quite late schedule ( over 9pm ), and well advised.
The last day, he was willing to keep our luggage until we had our flight back to Paris, all day long.
Maybe there s a microwave oven missing, but it s the only lack I would notice.Not much.
We were a group of 6 people, and were very comfortable.
We stayed 6 nights in october 2013 and we d like to do it again at the same place next time.

Convenient situation, very comfortable property

The appartment is well situated (near one express subway station and one bus stop, other subway station and bus stops a few blocks away, one supermarket in the neighborhood). It is a very comfortable place, well suited for children (toys are available). It is exactly as it looks like from the pictures. On the downside, one has not to be afraid of stairs...

Overall, we had a very nice stay!

Great place to relax while visiting Manhattan

We very much enjoyed this spacious and well equipped home. It was great coming back here after spending another full day enjoying the sites and sounds of Manhattan. Description of the house is accurate, it was clean and well maintained. Only minor observation to make: no toilet downstairs (as per description) and creaking bed downstairs. Contact with friendly owner was very smooth, received very friendly and accomodating welcome by care taker living in the apartment below. Downtown Manhattan only 20min away with express metro service, metro station being only a 5-10min walk from the house. Staying in this house in Harlem also allowed us to experience this part of the town where you might not have wandered of to when staying south of central park. Enjoyed some of the restaurants in the area: Amy Ruth's for soul food and Ethiopian restaurant Zoma. Also supermarkert nearby around the corner. I would definitely recommend this house: good value for money, pleasant atmosphere, good location to discover whole of Manhattan.

Perfect - Except A/C

Beautiful home in Harlem just 6 blocks from Central Park and a short, safe walk to Public Transit (which we used all week.) CVS, grocery store, and several restaurants just down the street. Definitely visit The Native Bar and Grill up the street to enjoy a great burger and Harlem hospitality. Kitchen is fully functional with several appliances, cookware, spices, etc. We enjoyed the wood table near the window where our entire family could eat together. Screened windows for air flow, back porch with furniture, and lots of places to sprawl and relax. The overall décor was excellent - even better than the photos.

Communication with the property manager could have been better. One email to firm up arrival time was not answered, and the manager did not provide phone contact info until after we arrived. So if we had had any issues before arrival, we would not have had a way to communicate this information. When we did arrive, we learned that a main A/C unit was out, with no promise to get it fixed. Weather was in the 80's, and we came home to and slept the night in a house in the lower 80's - this was a big letdown as the home was not quite the oasis from a busy day that we had hoped. We received a short tour of the home and were shown how the various appliances and TV work. The property was clean.

Overall, we do not regret our decision, and the property provided a great way for our family to be together, be a little more in touch with the local community, and have quick access to all of the great things about NYC.

Not worth the money

The place is spacious, nicely decorated and house manager responds in a timely manner but it was overall disappointing. The neighborhood is loud, people shouting in the middle of the night, not a "peaceful sanctuary" at all. The apartment was extremely hot, specially the middle floor, we had to buy 2 fans. Guests stayed mostly in the "air conditioned rooms" which were barely cool. Wouldn't stay here in the summer, extremely uncomfortable. We found cockroaches and kids were bitten by bed bugs and mosquitos in the house. Some bed sheets were dirty and smelled of sour milk. Freezer didn't work, we wasted frozen desserts we bought.
I wouldn't recommend staying here.
