Upper Manhattan Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Craig and I would love to have you come and visit us at our brownstone that is nestled on a quiet tree lined street in the village of Harlem. The apartment is a full floor in a privately owned brownstone.

Our newly renovated vacation and short-term rental is a spacious and private apartment-style suite, complete with a separate entry, full kitchen for cooking, living room, dining area and private bath, all conveniently located in the heart of historic Harlem. We employed the services of a professional interior decorator so that we could offer you the very best. Each apartment includes flat screen televisions, cable (with all the premium cable channels) and internet service and are completely air conditioned. This apartment includes a king size bed, a separate room with a single sleeper sofa and we provide an air bed tha could sleep one additional person. Linen is provided for everything.

We’re steps from all major mass transit lines (the nearest subway is three blocks away), some of the city’s best restaurants, entertainment and cultural attractions including Sylvia’s restaurant, the Red Rooster the Apollo Theater, the Studio Museum of Harlem and many more.

Whether it’s for a weekend getaway or a longer vacation stay, our suites are designed with your comfort in mind. But don’t take our word for it, take a look around here, or feel free to drop us a line with your questions. Come see what’s Behind the Red Door!

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fine stay in NY in Diane´s great apartment. Very easy contact with Diane before our arrival and she met us

when we arrived and gave us information about the apartment and the area. There is a grocery store a few blocks

away and resturants like Sylvias and Harlem shake that is very good. Subway is a few minutes away and it

will bring you down to Times Square in 10-15 minutes. I´ve been to NY many times before and always stayed at hotels,

no more of that. Will definitely rent this place again on my next stay. Thanks a bunch Diane !

Great location, nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 6 nights and had a great time. Apartment was very nice. Our lovely host Diane met us on arrival and gave us good advice on what was nearby. Subway was only 6 minute walk away. Was on 3rd floor, but as I knew that before arrival we were prepared to lug the suitcases up. Would stay there if I evere went back to New York.

Great apt, nice location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment! It is so much nicer at the end of a day of exploring to come back to Behind the Red Door than a hotel room. Had everything we needed. Our home away from home. Decent location. Two young girls and we felt safe the whole time. Try to settle check in and check out ahead of time.

Dpto comodo y muy bien ubicado

  • 5 of 5

Diane nos mantuvo siempre bien informadas. Fuimos mis hijas y yo, el barrio es hermoso y esta rodeado de restaurants muy famosos. Esta muy cerca de la 125st. y esta muy bien conectado (Bus y metro). Hay que tomar los consejos de Diane sobre alimentacion. El laundry lo realizan por 10 dols. a 50 metros. Excelente experiencia, muy limpio y ordenado. Pueden dormir hasta cinco personas comodamente. Lo recomiendo

Car: not necessary

The village of Harlem is diverse, culturally alive and thriving. Our property is a block away from Sylvia's and the Red Rooster. We are two blocks from the Apollo Theatre the Studio Museum of Harlem and all the shopping on the 125th Street corridor. It's a great place to stay in New York.
