Absolutely PERFECT! What a wonderful place! Part1

  • 5 of 5

This is the place you want to be when you stay in New York City! My friends and I studied in New York for 3 months and we're happy to say that this beautiful apartment was our home for these months.

First impression was absolutely overwhelming. The rooms were so spacious but at the same time warm and cozy because of the beautiful interior which was a mix out of the wood, the old brickstone walls but also cool design elements. Also the unique furniture makes this place to something very special and beautiful!

At the day of our arrival Maya welcomed so warm and friendly that we immediatly felt comfortable at this place. She showed us the whole appartment and gave us every information and tipps we needed (it is so cool to have someone who really knows New York and have special Tipps for bars, supermarkets or what ever you need) Thank you for that!

The accommodation has 3 Bedrooms. One masterbedroom with a realllyyyy comfortable queensize bed (it was so comfortable that I still miss it!)

The other Bedroom is on the same floor and has two beds in it, one queensize bed and one full size.

Between the two bedrooms there was a spacious bathroom on the same level which had a rainfall shower and a bathtub. Don't forget to put in the plug in the bathtub because otherwhise you will get to know the tiny little "Monsters" as Maya called them.

On the next level there is a huge open living room, kitchen and dining room area which was absolutely amazing. As we were 5 girls it was great to have so much space for cooking and living.

The Kitchen was well equipped so we had nearly everything for preparing any meal we wanted to.

One of us even prepared a turkey for thanksgiving and everything went fine! Maya also gave us tipps where we could order a turkey and brought us stuffing. We really appreciated that!

The third bedroom was right above the huge living area. Please recognize you only go upstairs and don't have a door which you could close. There's a curtain for a little privacy but if you sleep upstairs you will hear everything from the living and kitchen area.

But if everyone takes care of each other this isn't a real problem.

On this level there where 2 queensize beds which were a little bit noisy and squeaky maybe a little bit of oil would help or maybe there could get find another solution. Additionally to that there was also a littly bathroom and also a balcony on this level, from which we could watch the NYC Marathon. This was really cool!

Perfect Accommodations for Friends Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description were extremely accurate. This is a beautiful home with very friendly and gracious owners.

The owners were very responsive to questions about the property and booking procedures even before we confirmed our stay. They made us feel very comfortable and confident in our decision selecting this home for an annual friends get-together.

With our group spread far and wide across the country, we look forward to this yearly gathering. It was important to us to have common areas where we could relax and talk. This lovely home provided that in the very large and open living room, kitchen and dining room area. The bedrooms were also large, comfortable and well appointed. The home is very clean and has a lot of character.

The location made it convenient and easy to enjoy Harlem and also jump on the subway to visit other boroughs. The owners greeted us warmly upon arrival and gave us restaurant and other suggestions while checking us in. They were kind enough to take a group photo of us in front of the house as we were leaving. Our stay is definitely one that we will remember fondly!

Perfect for a family trip to NYC

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and as photo's. This was a trip with my Mum and sisters to celebrate my 40th Birthday. The place was so spaciuos and had everything that we needed and more. The location is perfect and Harlem has such a lovely feel. Locals we're very friendly and we were happy coming and going night and day. We found the local supermarkets has a huge selection for us to self cater, with vegetarian and vegan's in our party and Subways were an easy walking distance. I just wish that we'd had more time to explore Harlem itself.

Any questions or queries that we had were always answered by Maya or her father, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and with them living downstairs it was easy to get hold of them. The area is nice and quiet and picturesque. You will enjoy your stay here :)

YOUR SEARCH STOPS HERE......Absolutely Amazing.

  • 5 of 5

I spent many hours online searching for the perfect place and after many phone calls, (some of which I found out later were fraudulent apartments) I spoke with Maya. I new immediately this was it. I felt an instant connection with her kindness, openness, and sincerity. We arrived and found the apartment to be just as the pictures shown. We had 6 adults and two small dogs and the space was unbelievable. Mr. Gorgoni met us upon arrival and was very welcoming. Later in the evening after settling in, he welcomed me into his home to help with our sight seeing ventures and planning. The grocery store and subway were both very close, maybe a 5 minute walk. The neighborhood is very nice, the people were very nice, and we felt very comfortable returning home at late hours of night. The apartment is well equipped with plenty of kitchen essentials as well as other necessities. We didn't have to pay for parking, driving in and out of the neighborhood was stress free, going to and from the subway was stress free, local shops and friendly people all make for a great vacation. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend this apartment. Thank You Mr. Gorgoni, Maya, and especially Beatrix for your hospitality.

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay over the holiday. Maya and her father were very welcoming, and having so much space in NYC was wonderful. Close to subway, grocery stores, etc...I would only quibble on two things:

Bed on highest level (next to balcony rail) squeaked very loudly when you moved. This needs to be fixed.

There wasn't any shampoo in the showers. For soap we had to use the liquid hand soap at the sink. My wife had brought some shampoo so no big deal.

Overall we had a great time and would rent from them again if needed.

Owner's Response: Hi Guest, Thank you for your review. As a reminder, since we are not a hotel, we only offer a mild hand soap and Johnson's baby shampoo/shower gel. Amenities like toothpaste and shampoo & conditioner we consider personal preferences and never have we provided them. Will see about fixing the squeak in the wooden bed in the mezzanine.

Great for kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our girls week in NYC. We had 4 adults and 6 children. The area was safe and we walked around Harlem everywhere. The owners were so nice and very accommodating to our large group.
