Wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting New York to celebrate our God Daughter's significant birthday and rented Williams beautiful house in Harlem. The location was fantastic - close to great restaurants, the wonderful Appollo Theatre and a really buzzing vibe in the neighbourhood. We were welcomed by Williams wife and were delighted with the accommodation and outside space. The house was perfect for the 6 of us and William had kindly arranged our pick up and return trip to the airport which made the journey so much easier. On the final day he went above and beyond to make arrangements to look after our luggage after check out which freed us up to enjoy in full our final day. I can't recommend William's property enough and coupled with his help and hospitality our trip was truly memorable! We will be back!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Williams place in Harlem. Convenient to the subway and restaurants. Quite area. We loved the outdoor space. Brownstone was large and room for 4 adults and 2 children. I would recommend Williams place.

Pleasant stay in this quite and safe Harlem appartement

  • 4 of 5

Nice and comfortable townhouse which allowed us to spend a pleasant stay like real New Yorkers. The 125st subway station is very close and allows you to reach the center and the south of Manhattan directly. William is a perfect host who gives you lots of tips for a good stay. Supermarket close to the apartment.

Gorgeous and spacious home... Hard to find in NYC and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights over Spring Break. The owner, Will, was simply incredible. He found us transportation from airport together..... with two adults and three teens with big luggage, that was no small order. When we arrived, Will was there to meet us all. The home is impeccably clean with a fairly recent complete renovation. The photos do not do the property justice. The rooms are huge, especially by NYC standards. An added bonus was a beautifully refurbished grand piano that our young musicians played their hearts out on (despite a small need for tuning... which we were told about ahead of time.) The recommendations by Will were spot on, including the dining and jazz options. There was great attention to the details: good mattresses, quality linens, umbrellas at the door. The kitchen staples were a little sparse, but there were stores within easy walking distance. We ate a big brunch at the house and saved our money for eating our way through NYC. Public transportation is very easy from this location and we felt perfectly safe letting our teenagers roam about the surrounding streets alone. We had a toilet stop working while we were there and it was diagnosed and repaired within 24 hours. The only drawback is that the neighbors upstairs play music with bass heavy enough to vibrate the walls both before work and in the evenings (until late on the weekends). If you are a light sleeper, you should take the room in the basement. It's super quiet.

Thank you for sharing your home and helping us to create some wonderful family memories. We hope to be back!
