These are a few reviews from another site about the house:
Amazing historic house and amazing Harlem neighborhood. We really loved it here, it's so vibrant with tons of things to do a short walk away, for all ages: parks, restaurants, groceries, shopping, bars, cafes, etc. ...and 3 minutes to the subway. And you get to come back to a cozy, spacious, tastefully decorated home..Truly a gem. Thanks again!
We had a fantastic time staying at Razia's beautiful brownstone. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very welcoming Razia, who gave us a thorough tour of her home and answered all of our questions about the brownstone and the community. We were also greeted by Alan, a very nice friend and neighbor of the home who helps look after the space when Razia is traveling. Razia let us know that she lives close by and would be available any time day and night. It was nice knowing that if we needed immediate assistance, either she or Alan would respond quickly. Of course, we never needed to call either of them for anything, as the house was perfectly lovely! Razia's home had everything we needed to prepare meals. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of everything and we never ran out of clean dishes. It's nice traveling and not doing dishes! We enjoyed many of our meals at the table on the back porch, which is conveniently located right off the kitchen and overlooks a very sweet lush back yard. Razia's entire home is beautifully decorated with eclectic furnishings that she has collected from her travels abroad. The wonderful lamps throughout the place created a very warm ambiance. This colorful comfortable interior reflects the colorful multi cultural neighborhood the brownstone is in. One of our favorite things to do was to sit on the front steps at night, as this was when we really got to connect with neighbors and passerbys, who were all super friendly and welcoming. The brownstone is also convenient and within walking distance to everything a traveler might want... Grocery, coffee shops, bus stops, subway, churches, live music (top notch jazz) and restaurants (there's a trendy super yummy taco shop on the block). And Central Park...took us 10 easy min to walk there. The neighborhood felt totally safe to us. So much so, that we felt 100% comfortable leaving our teens home alone, as well as letting them explore the area on their own. Cozy beds! Quiet street! Fantastic place! We will be back!
We were a group of 10. Our stay at Razia's place was delightful. We enjoyed the neighborhood with coffee shops, market and easy access to the subway. Her place is gorgeous: it successfully strikes a lovely balance of modern style and complete comfort. We loved that bedrooms are on different levels, each near a full bathroom. We will definitely book Razia's place again!
We love Harlem, we moved here in 2000 as renters, then bought the property in 2004.
My husband is in advertising and i am a singer/songwriter and pharmacist.
We have a 24 year old daughter who lives in Berlin.
Razia Said purchased this townhome in 2004
It has what New York has to offer.
We feel like we are surrounded by nature, with Central Park, Marcus Garvey park and morningside park; all within 5mn walk from the house.And yet we are 10mn by subway from Times square which is the heart of Manhattan.
It is a townhouse that gives you a feeling of home and it is quiet!
Just want to take a few minutes to let you know that we really really enjoyed your place this past weekend. We had a great time.
Thanks so much for accommodating our family. We will most definitely look you up for future visits to the city.
Take Care and again thanks.
We are 2 families (4 adults, “kids” between 10 to 21 years) and came to New York for a city holiday.
We stayed 8 nights in this great house. The flat was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and we used it a lot. There was also a lovely terrace, in which we had breakfast and few dinners. Bedrooms were big and beds comfortable. The open floor plan was perfect for watching sports on TV and spending time with others.
At the arrival Razia showed us the house and gave general information about the neighborhood. Both Razia and Alain (the house manager) were very helpful and responded very quickly to any questions/requests during our stay. The neighborhood was pleasant with many supermarkets and restaurants. The subway was very close (express lines 2 and 3 to downtown). Also the Central Park was within walking distance.
We had a wonderful stay and look forward to coming back one day. Thank you Razia!

Beautiful! In New York for a graduation, 10 of us (9 adults, 1 toddler) stayed a week at this fabulous home. The house is spacious and wonderfully decorated, with a library in one hall and a piano, both of which we used. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable, the linens crisp and the courtyard a great place for a BBQ (all set with café lights, blooming plants and small tree!). The open floor plan was perfect for accommodating card games, corner conversations, sprawling on the couches to read and watching movies all at the same time and without crowding one another. The street is quiet, yet close to the subway a few blocks away. Alan was pleasant, attentive and provided a thorough orientation to all the house's features. We had a wonderful stay and will be back.
We had a wonderful Christmas celebration in this home.It was very comfortable and close to all conveniences (transportation,shops..).
My Mum and nephew particularly enjoyed being able to play the piano,and played Christmas songs on Christmas Eve.
There was lot of room for all of us which made it easy to live together for 8 days (we were 3 family generations)
Great place,beautifully furbished,good location.We really felt at home
We spent 10 days in this fantastic city and the apartment was perfect, very close to the express metro line (you can reach the south of Manhattan in 15 min) and to many bus stops, the area is absolutely save and full of supermarkets and restaurants.
We were 7 adults and 2 kids and the apartment is comfortable for such a big group, there is also a lovely terrace, the only rhing I could say is that with one more bathroom the apartment would be absolutely perfect (but Razia is working on it), thanks for all!
We have stayed for 8 days. We were with 8 (4 adults and 4 teenagers). The house is wonderful, with lots of space and a very nice terrace. It seemed as we were at home. Everything is made to feel good and Razia is really friendly.
The neighborhood is pleasant, the supermarkets are numerous and the subway is very close (lines 2 and 3 up to Times Square within 15min.
We lived somehow as real New Yorkers. Looking forward to going back. Thank you, Razia.
This is a beautiful old brownstone in East Harlem, an area which is becoming more gentrified as the years go by, that said, the area retains Harlem character and vibe, which adds to the great location. The subway stops are very close by and there is a supermarket, CVS and take-out places all within walking distance.
Important points to note for future guests:
The upstairs apartment is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues - it is 3 flights of steep stairs to reach the living area from the street.
The downstairs apartment (which we stayed in) has 3 double bedrooms and a 4th bedroom in the lower basement. This fourth bedroom doesn't have a "sprung" bed, but rather a futon style soft bed. I knew my husband would struggle with this, so Razia kindly let us use one of the bedrooms in the upstairs apt. as it wasn't in use. This isn't so clear from the photos online, so please double check on this.
Suggestions for improvement:
Changing the bed in the 4th bedroom of the lower apartment. We just felt that having made the decision to spend the money on a VRBO, rather than a hotel, doesn't mean we should have to sacrifice a comfortable/supportive bed.
The upstairs apt's lower floor shower didn't provide hot water most days, this needs looking at. Also, the toilet in this same bathroom seemed to be constantly filling the cistern (sounded like it was anyways).
All in all, worked out well.
