Overview

About the property

Art-filled One Bedroom With Garden Access And Studio.

Our beautiful, art-filled garden apartment is now available for holiday rental!

Just two blocks from the subway and several grocery stores, smack in the middle of happening Harlem, walking distance to Columbia University, nine blocks from Central Park, it occupies the garden floor of the house we live in. We are a European-American family, and well familiar with both ways of life, so you will have no surprises!

Walk through your private entrance garden into the living room. With a large screen TV and a comfortable pull out couch, it can serve as your second bedroom. A large massive oak dining table accommodates up to six people for your own Harlem dinner party! The kitchen is fully stocked, and a dishwasher takes care of the clean up. A long art-filled gallery leads to the back of the apartment, were your bedroom overlooks the quiet garden. The bathroom is modern and clean. And your huge walk-in closet will house all of your clothes along with the suitcases, skis, golfing gear, whatever!

Off the bedroom you can work in your own studio, a tiny enclave where you can write your emails, browse the web or start that novel you have been thinking of writing. Internet access is free! From the studio you can pop into the ivy-covered garden, with its hammock, large dining table and flowering vines.

About Katrin Zimmermann

World-traveler, born in Germany, multi-lingual, renowned designer with my own company- and yes, I renovated this apartment! We live right upstairs!

Katrin Zimmermann purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Katrin Zimmermann chose Manhattan

Harlem is my love. Since I was a kid, I thought of Harlem as this great, multi-cultural place- and I was not wrong!

Anyone who lives in Manhattan would love to live here, with our beautiful old townhouses and lush gardens!

What makes this apartment unique

This house was a blank canvas when we bought it- nothing to stop my implementing my ideas of a modern, clean, high-end designed home.

Stay in Harlem

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this spacious garden apartment. This was our very first VRBO stay so we weren't exactly sure what to expect. I loved the interior space of this apartment - what a difference between staying in a cramped hotel room and this place! I loved the scale of the interior spaces. The size of the kitchen, living, bedroom and bathroom were all generous.

Despite the fact that this is a ground level unit there was still plenty of natural light throughout. Although we never used it, there is also a lovely shared garden behind with table, chairs and twinkly lights at night. We were surprised how quiet this part of Manhattan is. It was quiet enough for the windows to remain open our entire visit! The location was great as well - only 3 short blocks to the 116th street station. Two short blocks to decent espresso (Harlem Coffee). The "commute" to 42nd Street is amazingly quick as well.

Our thanks to our host Katrin for providing such a special place to stay!

Did not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious basement unit conveniently located in Harlem, about a 10 min walk north of Central Park. Clean, nice appliances and furniture, huge bath tub, king size bed, fun art. If you need downtime in NYC, a very nice place to relax and recharge.

Excellent, modern accommodation in a basement apartment in a historic building close to the subway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Harlem. The apartment was very clean, modern and spacious. The shops were close by, as was the subway. The people living in Harlem were friendly and very helpful. It was an excellent place to stay as the subway was only a 5-10 minute walk that took you straight into the city. Only minor criticism was the lack of air conditioning throughout the apartment. However, in September it wasn't a real problem for us.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! A word about the A/C- I have an A/C unit installed in the bedroom, as you saw, and I have a fan available in the living room. As the apartment is a garden apartment, it stays very cool during the summer. I offer an additional A/C unit for the living room if guests require it, but have never been asked!
