Great overall experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in this apartment. The place is sizable (much larger than your typical NYC apartment!), with two bedrooms and a spacious living area. We were five adults and one toddler, and we all had enough space. Margo and Vipin were also kind enough to arrange for a pack & play bed for my toddler. The apartment was very clean and we had everything we needed there for a 10-day stay. The commute to central NYC is really quick with the fast trains that stop a few blocks a way. Would definitely come again and recommend to others.

Just had a wonderful weekend visiting my son at Columbia - perfect location for a brisk stroll to campus and the apartment was lovely and comfortable for 4 adults from California... Would definitely book again.

Great Place to stay..

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from my trip with 5 ladies and we can't say enough about how wonderful this apartment was. The beds were so comfortable after a long day walking around town. It was so quiet we almost forgot where we were. The neighbors were friendly and the guys that work at the corner store were awesome and very helpful. Subway was easy to get to we did use UBER to get home at night (fairly inexpensive). I look forward to staying here again.

couldnt have stayed at a better place

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost I wonna say thank you so much for letting 3 Aussie women at your place. We couldn't of had as much fun as we did if we hadnt of found this unreal apartment. The apartment pictures hasnt done this apartment much justice at all...the place is just the sweetest cutest place ever. This is my 2nd time stayin in Harlem the first placed I stayed at wasnt as half as nice as this place. The owners are unreal and very helpful. We made the mistake of not doing the recycling the way the USA do there (we do it different way in Australia) and they had no problem and understood and fixed it for us. This place is a 10 out of 10. Very safe area, clean, and 2 short blocks to 125th st where all the shopping and partying is at. Will definitely staying here again when we come back next year. Thank yous soooooo much. Hoped you's like the Australian gift we left you's

Harlem Brownstone

  • 4 of 5

The Brownstone Harlem apartment was well situated to provide a great base for our week long vacation in NYC. The location was just as described and was near to bus and subway links. The description and photos were accurate and the apartment was well equipped with a good washer/drier; the kitchen was adequately equipped and the shower was lovely. We were with two teenagers and they were comfortable with the sofa bed and blow up mattress provided. The apartment was very clean. The owners were helpful and answered any queries promptly. It was a great week!

Great apartment; great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a real find for us. The apartment is lovely and so very suitable for conversation, relaxation, dinners, etc. and, a total plus, the beds were fabulous--great mattresses and very quiet rooms. And for NYc, this place is really spacious. We were 2 couples and found the place perfect. And the location was terrific. So near public transit on a quiet leafy street. So much to do in the area, plus easy to get anywhere. MArgo and Vin were great at answereing questions, but in fact we had few since we were already familiar with Manahtten. We all highly recommend this apartmen and hopefully will be able to return.
