1 BR APT SLEEPS 4 IN THE HEART OF TRENDY CENTRAL HARLEM. PRIVATE ENTRANCE!

Harlem Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4: 1 Bedroom with Queen Bed + Queen Sleeper Sofa in Living Room ; 1 bath

QUIET, LOVELY APT WITH EASY ACCESS TO ANYWHERE IN NYC VIA SUBWAY OR BUS!

We are offering this 1BR apartment in our 2 family brownstone to NYC visitors here for a short stay. We welcome couples, families and business travelers!

The fully furnished and immaculate 600 square foot apartment is on the garden level and has a separate private entrance. Enjoy recently finished hardwood floors and up-to-date furnishings! The apartment sleeps up to 4 adults on a Queen size bed with luxury Serta Beautyrest pillow-top mattress in the bedroom and queen size sleeper sofa in the living room with 5” memory foam mattress. See Amenities section for more information on what is provided in the apartment.

Maps, guidebooks and a list of our favorite NYC spots are available in the apartment but feel free to ask us for any personalized recommendations.

Why is renting our apartment different from most other short-term rentals in NYC?

1. Peace of mind - we can legally rent our apartment as a short-term vacation rental because our house is a 2-family private dwelling. Apartments in buildings that contain 3 or more apartments cannot be legally rented on a short-term basis (30 days or less) in NYC.

2. We live on the property. While the apartment is a separate unit with a private entrance, we live upstairs. If you have any questions, concerns or issues, we can address it right away and most of the time, in person.

3. We provide all of our guests with an information packet with valuable neighborhood and NYC information and can assist with any requests they may have.

4. We love to travel and know what is important to our guests. We professionally clean our apartment between guests and make sure everything possible is provided for our guests comfort.

We hope you will enjoy our city and apartment!

Dining and Shopping : We are located in a prime area of central Harlem on West 127 St. between 5th & Lenox Avenues just 2 short blocks from the 125 St. retail/business district. The famous Sylvia’s soul food restaurant is literally around the corner. Down the block is one of the hottest restaurants in NYC, Red Rooster, owned by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelson and the venue for President Obama’s fundraisers. Chez Lucienne, a friendly neighborhood bistro is on the same block. The latest addition is Corner Social, a casual bar & restaurant with a lively atmosphere. All 4 restaurants offer sidewalk café seating during the warmer months. If a sit down dinner is not an option, there are endless choices including the many local delis or Soul Food Buffet & Salad Bars. For those of you that want to prepare your own meals, Olive Market, a gourmet market, & Pioneer are only 3 blocks away. Retail shopping on 125 St. includes Marshall’s (Designer/Brand name discounter) , H&M, DSW Shoe Outlet, Old Navy, American Apparel, Gap Outlet, Nine West Outlet, Body Shop, & Footlocker/House of Hoops.

Arts & Culture: Culture abounds in Harlem. Just within a 5 minute walking radius, we have so much to offer:

- The world famous Apollo theatre

- The Studio Museum, the nexus for artists of African descent and for work inspired and influenced by African-American culture

- Jazz clubs such as Showman's, Londel's, Cotton Club & the newly opened Minton's.

- Shrine, world music venue, offers live music every day of the week.

- The Maysles Independent Cinema owned by the filmmaker Albert Maysles (best known for Grey Gardens) and the only independent film house north of Lincoln Center is dedicated to the exclusive exhibition of documentary films.

We are both project managers in the financial industry and moved to Harlem over 5 years ago most recently from the Upper East Side. One of us was born and raised in NYC and the other has lived in NYC for the last 20 years and we couldn't imagine living any place else! We love traveling, reading, gardening, running, skiing, tennis, good food & wine and enjoying all NYC has to offer!

Michael & Sandy purchased this apartment in 2008

We have lived here for over 5 years and this is the first neighborhood in NYC that feels like a true community to us. We are happy that the area has changed for the better and pleased that our guest have had positive experiences in their visits!

Quiet, immaculate apartment on a beautiful block of brownstones in a friendly, convenient and newly trendy neighborhood is yours to enjoy like a New Yorker. We love NYC and love to travel as “locals” ourselves which allows us to anticipate the needs of our guests to make their stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. Hablo español!

Michael and Sandy were fantastic hosts. Apartment with kitchen was perfect for our needs. Lovely apartment - perfect for two. Sofa bed is an option, but not particularly comfortable (are they ever?) Location was spectacular....close to the subway and easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Red Rooster restaurant around the corner is a must! Got a massage with Alexson at the Harlem Holistic Center - best massage ever!

TERRIFIC PLACE, WONDERFUL HOSTS, CONVENIENT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a terrific place to stay during our week in NYC! Getting to and from it from LaGuardia via taxi (and bus possible) was easy -20 minutes. The apartment was spotless and had every amenity - nice comfy beds, plenty of storage to put away our stuff, fully equiped kitchen with nice dishes and pans, extras like olive oil, coffee, vinegar and stuff you wouldn't necessarily want to buy but made it great if you wanted to cook, etc. Michael and Sandy were perfect hosts, speedy on replies to my inquiries when booking and when we there so helpful whenever we had a question. Really nice people. The apartment is right around the corner from Lenox St and two short blocks to the subway - the 2 and 3 lines were express ones that quickly took us to Times Square. Harlem itself was fun to stay in - with lots of nice restaurants right near the apartment and the Appolo Theatre where we went to Amateur Night only a few blocks away. My teenage girls and I never felt unsafe in any way walking around the area, even after dark. I highly recommend this place - you can't go wrong staying there.

Had a blast on our trip 3 day weekend jaunt to NYC . Got in very late and Michael our host stayed up to midnight to personally greet us and show us around the apartment . Inside was a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine to boot .Speaking of the apartment,it was great , clean , perfectly located ( 2 minute and i mean a 2 minute walk to the subway ) and fully equiped . We we're 4 adults and never felt cramped . I would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful building .If we're ever back in NYC ,this is where we are heading .Thanks again Michael and Sandy for everything .
