Very pleasant, convenient apartment in active, lively area of Harlem

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Lita's. The apartment is so very convenient to subway system and many local grocery stores, wine, sandwiches, etc. Quiet and comfortable.

Theresa assisted us with transportation to the airport, which was an immense help to us. Thanks so much. The apt is only a block from a relative, so we will surely stay again.

Amazing property and owner!

We absolutely loved our stay with Lita at her property! She was so accommodating, greeted us at the property, and was so welcoming. She made out stay very easy and enjoyable. The property is located very close to subway stations and is a beautiful, historic home. We will be staying here again in five months.
