The apartment is owned and hosted by Will & family. Will is a walking encyclopedia and is privvy to a plethora of little known facts about not only Harlem but all of Manhattan. At times, he has given private tours around the island and enriching the visits of many New York City tourists.
We enjoy hosting travelers in our units, and have accommodated guests from all around the world.
We look forward to creating an enjoyable stay for you in New York City in a smoke free environment!
Will purchased this apartment in 2005
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!
This apt was the perfect choice for my NY trip. The owners are nice and made me feel very comfortable during my stay. The place is located in a quiet neighborhood and close to subway. Upon arriving you notice that the pictures do no justice. I would definitely stay here again.
Will is a great host because we had 4 hours of delay with our plane ! After calling him to
notice the delay, he was in the middle of the night (2am) at the entrance of the house to
welcome us very kindly, ready to listen and explain very well all the usefull things to
enjoy our stay.
He was always avalaible by email (or phone if necessary).
The house is totally conform to the description and the reviews already written. We
enjoyed a lot staying one week there at 7 people (we used the 3 bedroom and the sofa in
living rrom). The backyard was awesome to take the breakfast or the pre-lunch drinks
(beware of some mosquito bites).
Everything was ok for us we have a good time in new york and partly thanks to this house,
she's extremely clean and lovely decorated and we felt it has a "real soul".
Only one negative review to be precise is that we heard some noise the morning (7-8 am) in
the bedroom due to the street (in bedroom2) and the music of some neighbor in the bedroom
1 and in the living room.
Anyway it's common for a TOWN house and we didn't go to NYC to sleep until noon ;-)
It's definitely a excellent place to be in NYC.
William's brownstone in Harlem was a great find. I spent several weeks weighing the pros and cons regarding the different locations to decide to rent and this turned out to be beyond perfect. We were a short 15-20 minute drive from LGA, 10 minutes from Times Square, and were a block away from Marcus Samuelson's Red Rooster restaurant, among other great dinning spots. The space itself was incredible. There were separate areas to lounge, eat, watch the game, and even do some work for those traveling professionals. Sleeping accommodations were as expected; very spacious, plentiful, and comfortable. The rental was tastefully decorated and warm and cozy, a sharp contrast from the cooler weather outside. We cooked our own breakfast after taking a trip out to the recommended markets but as stated earlier we were minutes from restaurants. There's an ATM around the corner as well as a barber shop which we used a few times. There was also a Planet Fitness a few blocks away that a few of us used. If you are still in the market for a place to stay in NYC then your search ends here. I highly recommend William's rental and will rent from him again on subsequent visits.
We arrived on Saturday around 3pm. Will met us at the townhouse and showed us around. He provided a binder full of recommendations for restaurants and things to do. He was a great host. The townhouse is conveniently located just 2-3 blocks from the subway red line. The immediate neighborhood and walk to the red line subway always seemed safe.
My family and I were a little 2 minded about staying in Harlem as it was our very first time in NYC from Australia but turns out we were very very impressed!!
The house was fantastic, with everything you need!!!
Only a few blocks from the subway. Super markets and Restaurants were walking distance.
The Neighbours were so friendly and very helpful.
Just a great place all round.
Would defiantly stay again if we came back to NYC!!
This was a family vacation with our 3 teenage/young adult sons and my sister and brother in law. First, it is indeed a charming home. We arrived 2 hours before check in and William was so agreeable with letting us leave our suitcases at the home while the cleanup was being done. We immediately made our way to Sylvia's who's is just around the corner on Lenox Ave. The fried chicken and waffles and meatloaf--awesome! Upon checking in, Elizabeth showed us around. The home was wonderfully decorated! The upstairs rooms are so delightful and the hard wood floors are so warm. The basement had a spacious room and that is where the washer and dryer are. My only recommendation is that a rug be added to the room since the tile floor is cold and a rug would make room more inviting! And the backyard was a treat with the lounge chairs and the great landscape! The kitchen had everything you needed. Secondly, location. Yes, it is in Harlem. I did a lot of research before renting the home. It is located close to where the famous restaurants and nightlife is so yes, it is safe. The subway is a short 3 minute walk! Harlem Rooster whose famous chef had write ups, is just around the corner and fun ace! But get reservations! We didn't go too far from this area since we had such a busy week planned but we did go to some local markets and it was so convenient! To give perspective, by subway, Times Square is 10 minutes and West Village around 25 minutes and 911 Memorial about 40 minutes. But the plus is that after the freneticness of the day, to come home to quiet and a large space is lovely! Thirdly, value. Slam dunk---it is if you have a party of more than 4! William was easy to work with and such a pleasure to have his friend a private Driver available as well for airport ride. We miss NYC already!
