Beautiful House in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful stay at this spacious grand home. A traditional Harlem brownstone, with original wood details, the house is well-appointed and had everything we needed. The linens and towels were great quality, and the the beds were very comfortable. It is on a beautiful block and walking distance to major transportation and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and would visit again.

Beautiful home in West Harlem.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-maintained brownstone in a quiet neighborhood. Everything you need to complete your stay was available in the house. Larry has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Three to four blocks to the train, and street parking was available either on the block or one block over. My sister fell in love with the original architectural structure, the art work, and the history of the home. This will always be my go to rental when visiting NY in the future. Larry was very responsive to my emails, inquiries, and for that reason I know with this home I will always have a real home away from home. Thanks for everything Larry, we enjoyed our stay and the history of your beautiful home.

Charming and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The house is absolutely charming, full of original Victorian-era woodwork. The owner has a lot of vintage family photos in the home which our group enjoyed very much. The property is in a quiet neighborhood and is within easy walking distance to the subway and restaurants. There are also "corner markets" within walking distance where you can find essentials.. It was an experience in itself to see a bit of how a typical New Yorker lives! The home is quite comfortable for a large group..plenty of bathrooms and places to spread out. We used Uber mostly to get around, just to save time, but we did travel into the city by subway once. Larry was absolutely wonderful to work with-- always available to provide helpful information. Highly recommend this rental!!

The place to be !!!

  • 5 of 5

We were 11 people staying in this beautiful house and it was perfect for us.

The house is very big and we did not have the impression of being so much. It is located near the subway.

Thank you Eric for the house cleaning and for having been so nice with us. It was perfectly clean and we appreciated staying there.

Larry who rent his house is also very nice and helpful. He answered to each of our request and the best is done to help people to be fine there.

This is really the place to be....

10 days in Newe York

  • 5 of 5

We were three women, 50+ an we had a very pleasant stay at Larry's. The online ad (pictures and description) was absolutely realistic. Larry was an excellent host, vey helpful and generous.

The apartment is not directly near the center but this is no problem as the subway station A,B, C, - which is a 7 minutes walk from the house - gets you to the center in 20 minutes. It was a very nice neighborhood and we really enjoyed our stay.
