Overview

Harlem Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 full kitchen, sleeps 5 (max 6 including infant)

This beautiful, newly-renovated two-bedroom 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. Enter the property from a quiet, tree-lined street, up three flights of stairs, into an apartment with modern amenities and appliances, charming decorative fireplace, hardwood bamboo floors, and furnishings from the owner's travels worldwide. The living room, bedrooms, dining area and full kitchen are equipped with free wireless Internet (WIFI), cable TV 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, Ethiopian, French bistro, Dominican, contemporary American, Senegalese, 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. Having traveled, worked, and lived overseas, they enjoy meeting guests and providing them with all of the information at their disposal to make yours a memorable visit to New York City. Upon reservation confirmation, you will receive a package of information and referrals to assist with 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.

So nice!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in Kakuna's apt for 3 nights and would (and hopefully will) return for a longer stay.
Everything was just right. The apt. is clean and spacious. The bathroom was big and the water pressure good. I was pleased to know that Kakuna and her family also live in the building because I knew that meant the premisis would be well cared for.
From the start, we felt like we were in good hands. Kakuna responded quickly to my inquiries and send a lot of well organized material - everything we needed to know for our stay like the wifi passwords, the recycling schedule- and a list of supermarkets, information on how to get to the apt from each airport etc. In addition, she have us some great restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood. We felt right at home and well taken care of.
We were surprised and delighted to learn that Kakuna was even bringing us breakfast supplies - eggs, milk, bread, cereal, coffee, tea, cottage cheese etc. We hardly needed at get groceries at all.
We felt very comfortable in the neighborhood as well. Although it may appear far from downtown Manhattan on a map, the express train stops nearby and it's just a short ride.
The beds are both comfortable and, best of all, it was quiet at night! No sirens, trucks, people shouting. You could hear the fridge humming, it was so peaceful.
Thanks so much for everything, Kakuna!!!

Great apartment, location and host!

  • 5 of 5
Kakuna was so helpful from the first contact to the moment we made our reservations. She helped from giving us directions to get to the brownstone, to giving us pointers on what to do and see in the area and how to get to & from. .She gave us great suggestions for restaurants. We were celebrating my 60th birthday and had the best time. The apartment was wonderful, exactly as shown in the pictures. .Kakuna had some breakfast items in the refrigerator for us, and there was plenty of glasses, dishes, etc. for our use. The apartment was 1/2 a block from the subway which made it super convenient for us to go everywhere we wanted. Shopping and dining in the area is good and EVERYONE was so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here ... can't ask for more; especially everything Kakuna did for us!

Welcoming stay in the city

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Kakuna's place for 2 weeks and felt like home right away. The appartment was spotless clean and had everything we needed (clean cotton towels, sheets, bathroom and kitchen equipment). The appartment is conveniently located 2 steps away from the subway that takes you to the city in 15 minutes. Kakuna and her husband are very welcoming and considerate, I would definitely recommend their appartments!

An Uptown Jewel

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have just finished a month long stay in this lovely home in Harlem. We've spent a month or more in NYC for the past 5 years and this is the first unit we will return to. So many things to love about this hundred year old remodeled brownstone: 1)The 2 bedrooms are in the back, so no street noise, 2) The subway is just a few steps away, 3) A washer/dryer and dishwasher (you won't find either any of those appliances in most rentals), 4) A functional, well-stocked kitchen, 5) A lovely, safe, neighborhood, 6) Wonderful hosts. We also like that the unit is on the 3rd floor with no one above us. Shopping and dining in the area is good and Whole Foods is just a few subway stops away, along with the Whole Foods Wine Shop, which stocks wine for all budgets. We're already confirmed for a month next year and expect this to be our NYC home away from home for many years.
