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.

Cozy and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is exactly how its shown in the pictures. Its clean spacious and cozy. It has everything you need. The area is in the heart of Harlem and approx 2 blocks away from the train station. Diane was very hospitable and reachable. She made sure we got in ok and made sure everything was up to our standards. She was very flexible with the time and allowed us to check in early so we can begin our plans in the city. I would definitely stay here again anytime im visiting NY.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us, two frinds, staying one week in New York. It is situated in a calm street in Harlem a bit outside of the touristy areas, which we appreciated. The apartment is only a few blocks from the subway so you can easily get downtown. You can also hop on bus number 10, driving along the western side of Central Park into central Manhattan. There were lots restaurants nearby and a supermarket conveniently near. The famous Apollo Theatre is at walking distance.

The apartment very was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is on the upper level of the building, and there are two flights of stairs to climb and no lift. That was not a problem for us, however. It was a pleasure to meet the hostess, Diane, who was very nice and helpful. She invited us to a jazz concert the evening after our arrival.

We were really satisfied, and recommend this flat to anyone wishing to spend some time in New York.

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.

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.
