About Bill Kammer

Retired NYC Public School teacher, now a full time 'back to my roots' Jazz musician (Berklee College of Music) living in the soul of New York - Harlem. In the past ten years I've seen Harlem grow to what it is today, and want to share it with the world. This is why I have decided to post my duplex apt on this site. I hope all my guests can get a taste of the Harlem culture during their stay with us.

Bill Kammer purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Bill Kammer chose Manhattan

I love Harlem for its Jazz history and hoping to further the tradition.

Bill, owner, is amazing! Good people :). Very informative and helpful and even had snacks for our family upon arriving. Cool place to stay! Even my parents said they would like to stay there again when we go back.

This property was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Bill was a gracious and helpful host. He accommodated all of our request, even those that somewhat inconvenience him. He was one of the nicest people I've met and he answered all questions we had in a friendly manner. He treated my family with respect and kindness. His property is located in a great and quiet area with easy access to the subway system. It was comfortable and accommodated my family well. I loved everything about his property. We couldn't have found anything better. His tips on restaurants were great and we enjoyed every minute of our trip. We would definitely stay her when traveling to NYC again.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

The rental seemed even bigger than advertised! We had four adults traveling and by New York standards, this was very roomy. The location was easy to get to from LGA, and two major subways lines near by made it a breeze. First time in Harlem, and enjoyed going out to some local places for meals, convenient grocery stores, and very quiet at night. Our host was so amazing and personable, you truly cannot go wrong here! We will definitely come back!

Great apartment, great location - home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 very busy days sightseeing in NYC on our girls’ weekend and this apartment was a great base and location for everything we wanted to do. There were four of us and we couldn’t have picked a better place for sleeping and bathroom options. There are enough beds to sleep 8-10 people and having two bathrooms is a bonus in NYC. This place would be great for 2 couples, as each would have their separate space. The apartment is small but roomy, very clean, and well equipped – the pictures are very accurate. It is also in a quiet, residential area. Bill lives in the building and you are the only other tenants. He is very helpful and informative and always available to answer questions. He was great to work with from the time we booked the apartment until we left – he even helped us with our luggage. He also worked with us on an early arrival/later departure as no one was in the apartment right before or after us. Our security/damage deposit was returned almost before we got back home!! Definitely would recommend this apartment and would stay here again. Thank you so much Bill. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you.

Good place to live like a local

  • 4 of 5

The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bill's duplex in Harlem. Very short walks to restaurants,. grocery stores and the subway; the location is super convenient to whatever you're doing. The duplex is small but being situated on two floors there was enough separation/privacy for both couples. Bill was generous with his time, but not overbearing. As a musician, he clued us in on the various jazz venues happening during our week long stay. Final word -- If you want to experience NYC as a local - i.e. living in a safe and quiet neighborhood -- then this is the place for you.

Great stay in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful 3 night stay at this property. We were a party of 5 and there was more than enough room for us all. The apartment was as advertised, clean and updated with comfortable furnishings, linens and all kitchen appliances needed for the stay. Location was also great: grocery stores, restaurants and access to public transportation all within walking distance; quick trip to all NYC attractions. Mr. Kammer is an amiable host with a wealth of knowledge about the area to complement your stay.
