About the Owner
Just an ordinary New York host hoping to do create the best New York City experience for our guests.
I truly love New York.
4.8 based on 8 holidaymaker reviews
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this nice property. It was very spacious and clean. In addition, it had a great view of the city. Even though I was late, the owner waited for me to arrive. I would recommend this property to anyone that I know. Thanks.
A great place to stay
A big THANK YOU to Julie for letting us stay at her beautiful duplex.
When I booked it, I thought it was too good to be true...but it was just as shown!! It was ideal for myself, my husband and my 16 year old son, with mountains of space for the 3 of us to move around in - unlike other NY apartments that can be very cramped.
We wanted a base where we could come and go as we pleased, not being restricted by hotel room cleaning. That's exactly what we got. The duplex is positioned in a great place, just a few minutes walk from the subway station, providing access to downtown in about 15 mins. There are some very nice restaurants near by, including a wonderful coffee shop, that are reasonably priced with great food.
If your looking for somewhere to stay in NY with great access to all of Manhattan, then look no further. You have found he ideal place to rest!
We stayed in this spacious appartment for 6 days. The photos sum up exactly what you can expect as the finish is beautiful. We enjoyed the balconies and had breakfast on most mornings before venturing out. We found that appartment a welcome retreat from the bustling streets of New York! The appartment was on a really quiet street in Harlem which was a great safe place to stay and had a real buzz about it. We used the local Italian on the corner which was a great find and we are made most we!come. It is very easy to get to the tourist spots of Manhattan by metro with Times Square being 15 mins away. We also walked the length of Central Park from the appartment and that was amazing Julie the manager was unobtrusive however was very helpful with advice. The property was very clean and very well maintained giving a feel of luxury. Thanks Julie for an enjoyable stay and lovely to meet you !
A nice way to live as a New Yorker
This option was way better than a hotel room. The apartment is incredible big for Manhatthan standards with a personal touch in every corner.
Decoration is beautiful and be sure to find exactly what you see in the pictures. It is really a lovely place that I'd call home away from home.
The stairs worn us out a bit but it was a good workout.
I'll totally recommend it and would stay again in another opportunity.
But the best of all was Julie's hospitality.
We have no words to thank her for her kindness ans accommodation in our mistakenly check-In time.
If you need a place to stay in NY you won't regret this choice.
Beautiful Apartment in the most PERFECT location
This is the place to stay in Harlem to do it all!
My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights for a birthday celebration. The first day was unfortunately a work day but, the location was perfect for catching the train into the city to the office. Just a couple of blocks and a 10 minute ride and I was in mid-town.
The apartment itself is spectacular. It is just as you see it in the photos. It is immaculately clean with two rather large bedrooms, each bedroom has a queen bed with their own balcony attached. Downstairs there is a large living room with a futon that comes out to a full size bed, a single bed as well as a queen size aero bed in storage. There was plenty of room for 6 ladies to be comfortable sleeping.
The flat also has two bathrooms. One full sized on the top floor and one with just a shower on the lower floor. The flat is so spacious that we never felt as though we were in each others way. We did not cook in the apartment but there is the most beautiful kitchen with ultra modern European appliances. We spent each morning sitting around the table with our coffee with the large sliding doors open with the crisp New York air washing over us as we planned our day.
Location is the word for this lovely flat. It is on a quiet street with a park at the end of it with many people walking with their pets and children. The area is ultra safe. Actually, the people walk past and say "good morning" and "good evening" as they pass. Just like it should be. They were so nice that a couple of them came out to assist us with our luggage as we were leaving for the airport.
There are many establishments very close by. In fact, I would venture to say that when you stay here, you do not have to go anywhere else in New York to enjoy your stay.
There is also plenty of shopping close by with Marshalls, CVS, grocery stores, DSW, MAC all within walking distance.
Then there are the restaurants! At the corner is Setapani for your Mediterranean fare....and wine. Barawine is on the same corner as the flat. This was the perfect place for that glass on the way home and our Sunday brunch with D.J. Nesto. Of course there is always Chez Luciene, Corner Social and Red Rooster on 125th.
Shopping, food, wine and a beautiful apartment to relax and unwind. Julie's place is the best spot for a vacation in Harlem.
Thank you!!! to Julie and to Margo for helping to make our vacation/birthday a most memorable experience.
Un havre de paix dans le tumulte de New York !
Nous sommes partis en famille pour passer 6 jours et 6 nuits à New York. Nous étions 4, et l’appartement était conforme à nos attentes et aux photos disponibles sur le site. Nous avions vraiment l'impression de nous sentir à la maison dans cet appartement typiquement new-yorkais. Très spacieux, fonctionnel, très bien équipé, avec une terrasse au calme pour prendre ses repas, et tout cela dans un quartier typique, à 5 minutes à pied du métro le plus proche et à 10 minutes de l'entrée Nord de Central Park. Pour un petit jogging le matin, c'est l'idéal !
La ligne de métro dessert tous les principaux sites de New York, et ce sans changement. Par exemple 10 minutes de métro pour se rendre jusqu'à Times Square.
En bref, on vous le recommande chaleureusement, de plus la propriétaire, Julie, est très réactive aux questions et pas avare en bons conseils !
From the Owner
“We have been renovating our historic Harlem brownstone for nearly 4 years! We really tried to keep the beauty of each and every old architectural element we could save during the renovation and carefully mix it with the state-of-the-art modern additions, like Daikin AC/heating system with individual temperature controls in each room or Bosch kitchen amenities. hope you enjoy the results!”

“Not every home in Manhattan can offer three terraces to have a morning coffee :) all our guests say that it is a unique treat - to relax in a quiet authentic place after a tiresome, thrill-filled and hectic day of wondering through the New York wilderness! please read our multiple reviews on other booking sites.”
