Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Upper Manhattan - 106 West 119th Street

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 has a jacuzzi tub! 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.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best vacation rentals, from every perspective: helpfulness of the owner; comforts (and spacious beauty!) of the apartment; great and convenient location; everything really! Only regret is not being able to meet Katrin's daughter in person, but hope to make up for it next time. Bis dann!

Wonderful stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5

Katrin's apartment is modern, clean, and very comfortable. It is convienently located with several subway stations within blocks as well as memorable restaurants nearby such as Cecil, and Red Rooster. Our host was very attentive to our needs and went out of her way to be sure everything went well. Our visit to the city to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter was a great success. We look forward to a return visit and would wholeheartedly recommend this property.

Excellent base for exploring NY

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spot and a chance for this former New Yorker to explore Harlem, a neighborhood I did not know as well as others further downtown. Apartment is comfortable, clean, convenient, quiet, with all the amenities I needed. Lots of great places to eat and an easy subway trip anywhere. North end of Central Park is stunning. I can't wait to go back!

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in Katrin's lovely apartment. We felt very welcomed and Katrin did everything to accommodate us. THe garden in the back, under the wisteria was lovely- we were able to entertain our family comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked and I was able to cook dinner for 5 people with no problems.

The neighbourhoood had many restaurants and shopping was close by. We walked everywhere but buses and subway are nearby. We would highly recommend this rental and would come back next time we are in NY.

Thank you, Katrin, for a lovely stay!

Lovely stay in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Katrin was great to work with and we'd love to stay again, because she made everything so easy, from suggesting an inexpensive, kind cab driver to providing a beautiful garden oasis in the backyard. The location made us a little uncomfortable, but the apartment itself felt totally safe, including the backyard garden. Everything was clean and comfortable. There's a decent amount of restaurants/street vendors in close walking distant, and the subway was only a short walk away. While we are used to staying closer to midtown and enjoy the convenience of that, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. Also, the Palomino street vendor on Malcom X was sweet and made delicious food!
