Overview

Harlem Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom studio, 1 full bathroom, 1 full kitchen, sleeps 2; non-smoking

This beautiful, newly-renovated studio apartment is located in a famous residential neighborhood surrounded by historic architectural brownstone homes. Experience the diversity of contemporary Harlem and the culture, arts, and residents of this unique community that has influenced every corner of the globe. A private entrance provides direct access from the quiet, tree-lined street into an apartment with modern amenities and appliances, charming decorative fireplace and furnishings, hardwood bamboo floors, a storage loft for luggage and artwork from the owner's travels worldwide. The living room, dining area and full kitchen are equipped with free wireless Internet (WIFI), flat-screen TV with cable and international channels (TV5, RAI, BBC), top-quality, clean linens and all of the comforts and conveniences of home. The B & C subway lines (direct transfer to express A & D lines) are steps from your door on the corner. In 15 minutes you are in midtown: Columbus Circle/Times Square.

The Neighborhood: Harlem is a vibrant community, rich in arts and culture (The Apollo, Studio Museum in Harlem, St. Nick's Pub, Lenox Lounge, art galleries, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture), historic architecture (Strivers Row, Astor Row, Hamilton Terrace, City College), cuisine (soul food, African, French bistro, Dominican, contemporary American, Mexican, bakeries, Caribbean) and much more.

Two blocks away, you will find 24/7 corner stores, Duane Reade (a citywide health and beauty chain store and pharmacy), and a Chase Bank with 24-hour ATMs. There are a number of takeout restaurants (Caribbean, Chinese, soul food) if you prefer to eat at home, and local bars (The Shrine and Londell's) where you are certain to meet local residents and fellow travelers.

Nearby Attractions: The apartment is within walking distance of Central Park, Columbia University, Grant's Tomb, the Riverside and Abyssinian churches and half a block from St. Nicholas Park where the newly reopened Alexander Hamilton House is located. The M3 Bus is located steps from the apartment and takes you to the East Side's Museum Row (El Museo, Museum of the City of New York, Guggenheim, Whitney and Metropolitan museums). The M10, also on the corner, takes you to the Upper West Side (Museum of Natural History, Columbus Avenue boutiques and restaurants, Lincoln Center, movie theaters, and Central Park).

Your Hosts: Your hosts are the property owners and they will ensure that your arrival is a smooth and comfortable experience. They have been providing vacation rental services and welcoming guests from all over the world for over four years. They have traveled, worked, and lived overseas for most of their lives and enjoy meeting guests and providing them with all of the information at their disposal to help make yours a wonderful and memorable visit to New York City. They will send you with a package of information and resources in advance of your arrival to assist with your trip planning, and they are happy to share their insider knowledge of the city, recommendations for special events and discount shopping destinations, gospel churches, and trips to other boroughs and cities (Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC). Families with children of all ages are welcome!

FOR GROUPS OF 7-8, the owners will rent both properties at this location (2-BEDROOM #927780 and STUDIO #922743) simultaneously.

Nice Place, Perfect Hostess

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Kakuna's rental for our 5th anniversary trip to NYC, and it was just amazing!

The studio is small, but so comfortable. Both beds are nice, and the perfect height to pull the table over to use while you're sitting on the bed. The bathroom is also stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.

The kitchen is the perfect size, with everything you need to cook full meals during your stay. Kakuna had bread, eggs, milk, juice, coffee and tea, all there and ready for us when we arrived. It was so nice to not have to worry about breakfast after a long day of traveling!

We were SO close to the subway, I don't think we could've asked for a better location since we only took the subway while we were visiting. The corner market is also walking distance away, very convenient.

My husband and I are already talking about our next trip to the city, and we will absolutely be renting from Kakuna again if we can! She made our trip even better than it already was, and she was just a text or call away if we needed anything!

Nice stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Bel appartement tout prés d'un station de métro donc trés pratique. Très propre et bien équipé. Kakuna est très gentille et nous a donné toutes les infos nécessaires ainsi que les produits nécessaires à notre arrivée (lait, céréales, jus d'orange...).

Rien à dire; nous aurions juste préféré un vrai lit double.

Je recommande vivement !!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved to stay at Kakuna's. She is the perfect hostess, available for us all the time. She gives you tips about the house and neighborhood that makes you fell like home.

The studio is just like the pictures and very clean. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. One block from the subway! Our next trip will be definitively at Kakuna's place!

Everything is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I think the title says it all, everything is awesome!

From the location (really quiet, safe, and half a block from the subway), the apartment (clean, cozy and with EVERYTHING you could ever need, Im not kidding here, you have razors, shampoo, moisturizer, first aid kit, umbrellas, hair dryer, soap for your clothes, EVERYTHING!), the owner (Kakuna is the best owner we have ever found in all our travels, she received us with milk, eggs, juices, bread, everything you need, she helped us in planning our days, receiving our packages, and giving us helpful tips from where to eat to where to buy).

When we will return to NYC we will go back there without any doubts.

Thanks for all Kakuna!

Quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio for 5 nights & could not believe how quiet this neighbourhood was. Very convenient to both the bus & subway. The studio has every amenity you could possible need & we were greeted with fruit juice, milk, tea & coffee, butter & cereal. Very much appreciated after a very long & delayed flight from Western Australia. Extremely nice & helpful host's. We hope to stay longer next time & enjoy this space again!
