One of a Kind Garden Duplex Harlem Apt

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,100 sq ft
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Townhome, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-9)

This is really a one of a kind apartment in central Harlem. It is a duplex apt that features a great open kitchen with everything you need to cook and eat! A large dining room that can seat up to eight, a living room with a sectional sofa bed, flat screen tv with cable, wifi, and bookcase.

When you enter the apt, you walk into a large open space that leads you through the living room, kitchen, dining room and a back door that leads you into the backyard that has patio furniture, grill and a deck. Great place to have spring/summer/fall breakfasts or winding down at the end of the night. There is also one full bathroom upstairs, and two very comfortable air mattresses that sleep two each.

Downstairs you'll find a large sleeping quarter with two queen size beds, and a large full bathroom as well. You can sleep four downstairs, and five upstairs.

It’s a great place for weddings, large group trips where private bedrooms are NOT necessary.

I have another apt in the same building that sleeps 1-3 guests.

All linens, and towels included.

All payments for this apt is made through the VRBO/Homeaway Reservation Manager, due to a lot of suspicious activity ID and credit card will be verified upon checkin

About The Owner

I am a real estate agent in NYC. The husband is an entrepreneur who puts too much faith in me! We have two young boys who keep us busy and young. Together we are a strong and passionate team of four who work hard and play even harder! We love Harlem and everything it has to offer, and are forever spreading the word on this amazing neighborhood.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2005

Why The Owner chose Harlem

When I met my husband over 10 years ago all he talked about was Harlem, he was rootly involved in the rehabilitation of many Brownstones back when no one wanted to be there, and was passionate about owning a part of history. He was very specific about what he wanted, and sent me out in the jungle with his list to find it. And I didn't fail. Five years and two gorgeous boys later, our dream of owning a Brownstone in the historic neighborhood of Harlem came to fruition, and we couldn't be happier to share it with the world. We hope you enjoy the neighborhood, culture and soul as much as we do. We love waking up in the morning and strolling the streets of the city. There is really nothing like it (except a great cup of coffee).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved every bit of this apartment. It was perfect for our family. The owner is amazing and the apartment is spotless and perfect!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 women and 3 kids and we had plenty of room! Very comfy and warm as it was snowing during our stay. Beautiful apartment and loved the area. Very close to subway so that was a plus since it was freezing outside. I have stayed in a lot of places in NYC and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!

Love everything about this home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for celebrating my cousins bachelorette party. The location was not far from the subway, Amal allowed us to check in early and she always responded quickly to my messages. This home was so spacious and yet cozy to where we all had enough room to hang out in the living and kitchen area. Everyone in our party was satisfied with our stay. We all felt very safe with the sensors light and security lock pad. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your home.

Mother/Daughter trip to NYC

  • 4 of 5

Nice stay, the apartment was clean and as pictured. Communication was good from Amal. Parking is a bit of an issue but I assume most visitors to NYC won't bring a car. There were loud noises during the night that woke us up but I'm not sure where they were coming from. All in all a good stay.

Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed there many times. It is on ground floor which makes for easy entry with bags..... two baths which are great for women. Owner is responsive and quick to remedy any issues, which there have been minimal in all these years. It's home in NYC for me!
