My honest opinion

This is my first time using a vacation rental so I was very worried about the ideal in general. After a stay at Brenda’s Place all my worries are now at ease. The rental is in Harlem but it is in a wonderful part. Actually after visiting the Bronx and Brooklyn I was so happy I stayed here. The area is on a tree line street which is quiet and has very little traffic both vehicle and pedestrian. It was quiet at night, which was surprising to me, especially since I am a light sleeper. The apartment has its own entrance which is wonderful, and I would define as wheel chair accessible since its only 1 step down to the entrance from side walk. The apartment was as seen in pictures which was great except one of the photos doesn’t show the television in the living. There was plenty of dinner wear and cooking accessories to accommodate those who prefer to eat in while vacationing. There is a washer and dryer which was supplied wish detergent and fabric softeners. There was also an outside patio which has a grill and patio set decorated with ivy and heavenly bamboo (nandina) plants (I’m a nature lover).
I don’t think there is one word that best describe my impression of Brenda, but I will use the word “wonderful”. Our flight arrived early so we arrived at the apartment almost 2 hours earlier than expected. I texted her and let her know and she left work to meet us. She took the time to show us where everything was located in the apartment and had a notebook filled with all the information needed. This notebook included subway maps, menu of delivering restaurants, wifi information, and the telephone number for the home phone you can place local calls. She always made us aware that she is willing to help with anything which really helped since we needed our tickets for the statue of liberty printed that she gladly delivered to us.
I honestly love the place and I would recommend to anyone who is planning to visit Nyc and prefer to stay outside Manhattan. It is close to both B, C subway line, and the 2 ,3. Which makes things a lot less confusing since you can head east down the street to 1 line and west to the other. It’s not even 2 Blocks away. There is a plenty of restaurants near also, like IHOP, McDonalds, popeyes chicken, Chinese, grocery stores, etc… Oh before I go, you can park on the street. I tried to be very descriptive in my pleasant stay here because I don’t want anyone to miss out on how wonderful this place is!!
