'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'

Joyce Roquemore Hanly purchased this house in 2005
We love Harlem and it is so convenient to all the sites in New York. We are only two blocks to the express train to Times Square. It takes less than twenty minutes to get to Times Square. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. It is safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Mount Morris Park historic district, very quiet and neighborly. People say hello to each other on the street, a unique feature for New York.
The bedrooms are very private, quiet and large. Church bells ring on the weekends, birds sing in the garden. The kitchen is state of the art. There is a piano. I offer complimentary coffee, artisanal teas and biscotti.I currently offer a walking tour of Harlem to help you orient to the neighborhood and become familiar with the landmarks and local need to know locations. We also have a private driver with high quality pick ups from airports or driving tours of New York. Price upon request.
What a treat, what a pleasure, what a house Thanks for a wonderful and happy stay, we will endeavor to return soon! Go the Lenox Lounge, Island Salad and Smoothies @ South Beach Cafe were gorgeous. I couldn't ask for a better place to celebrate my 40th. great friends, great food (and drink) and an amazing pad to chill in the evening. Who could ask for more:)
Get a real feel for the history of Harlem by staying here. Your host is awesome and will give you info about the neighborhood. Great people in the area, cool bars and restaurants, great old buildings!
We rented for 4 nights around our son's wedding in Manhattan on Dec. 10. We were 5 couples staying there.
Very spacious and comfortable, the kind of place you really enjoy being in and having others stop by to visit. Interior decoration speaks of Harlem's rich cultural history. Quiet street, delightful park nearby, stores, restaurants, subway within easy walking distance. Owner is helpful. A few quirks in the brownstone (e.g.. draftiness, behavior of a couple faucets), but those are minor. Finding on-street parking nearby Is generally a big challenge, but you can briefly double park or stop by a fire hydrant to load/unload vehicles, and there are a couple public garages perhaps a 10 minute walk away as a fallback.
We would definitely recommend this rental to others. Ours was a very good experience.
During the Thanksgiving week our extended family (10 adults and 1 child) stayed at the Harlem Mansion. All aspects of this renovated Brownstone in Harlem met or exceeded our expectations. The five bedrooms with private bathrooms very comfortably accommodated the family as well as provided an excellent dining-in option. On Thanksgiving Day our family hosted an additional 8 adults for a Holiday celebration. The spacious dining room and kitchen provided ample space for the cooking and eating. Throughout the entire process of reserving the home to exiting Joyce was a pleasure to work with.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Harlem Mansion and highly recommend it for a family stay in NYC.
Came from Australia to celebrate a birthday in the Big Apple. We were a group of 11 and all felt very at home in this beautiful brownstone residence. Definitely recommend it for a stay. Subway and bus services close by.
Five ladies stayed in the house to celebrate my recent birthday. It is everything it says on the web site and more. The location is excellent for getting downtown, Central Park, in fact anywhere as it is located only five minutes walk from a sub way. Locally the area is really buzzing, with the famous Sylvia's and Red Rooster restaurants just nearby. With a large Wholefoods store just about to open it will just complete the area for convenience. However the house itself is in a really nice street with a park at the end. Joyce provides for everything in the house and you can't help but enjoy yourself. It's a perfect place to come back to at the end of a long days sight seeing or shopping. I will be back again for sure.
We were a family of 11 people and everyone had an awesome time.
Joyce, the owner, was very professional and answered all our questions before we arrived.
Stephany, her assistant, was very helpful and friendly.
This home is the best one we ever rented : very spacious, elegant, quiet and we really felt like home.
We enjoyed the artdeco style.
Each couple had his private bedroom and bathroom, the kitchen was well equipped and this incredible dining table was made for us :-)
And we had a piano for our musicians nephews...
The neighborhood is very safe night and day.
It was our fifth time is New York and we hope we'll come back in this charming home next time.
Nous étions une famille de 11 personnes et chacun a passé d'excellents moments.
Joyce, la propriétaire a été très professionnelle et a répondu à toutes nos interrogations avant notre arrivée.
Stéphanie, son assistante, a été très sympathique et efficace.
La maison est la meilleure que nous ayons jamais louée : très spacieuse, élégante, calme et nous nous y sommes sentis chez nous.
Nous avons adoré le style art déco.
Chaque couple avait sa propre chambre et salle de bain, la cuisine était bien équipée et la table de séjour magnifique et immense était faite pour nous.
Et nous avions un piano pour nos neveux musiciens...
Le quartier est tranquille de jour comme de nuit.
C'était notre cinquième séjour à New York et nous espérons que nous reviendrons dans cette charmante maison la prochaine fois.
