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.
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
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!
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.
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!

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!
I highly recommend this apartment! Katrin is a fabulous host, a very friendly and welcoming lady.
Everything in this apartment is of the same standards as a 5 star hotel, the bedding, the towels down to the bathroom tissue is all of luxury quality. The garden is very pretty and quiet. The bedroom and bathroom are huge and the whole apartment is very cosy. The area is VERY safe. Harlem is a very active neighbourhood so you always feel safe at night no matter what time you are out, the city really never sleeps!
The subway station is 3 blocks away so you have very easy access right into midtown. There are restaurants everywhere in Harlem so you will be spoilt for choice most deliver too. I really miss staying here already, especially being here in the summer its amazing. I cant wait to come back and hopefully this apartment will be available again when I do. Looking forward to summer 2017 already.
Loved our stay in the Harlem Garden Apartment! Convenient to subway - takes only a few minutes to get to Central Park or Midtown. Great places to eat nearby! It had everything we needed -good layout and very comfortable. The weather was not perfect for the garden but we enjoyed it anyway! Katrin was great - super nice and great communication! Would definitely recommend the Harlem Garden Apartment.
My husband and I rented Katrin"s suite October 10-17, 2015. We really liked the location...close to public transit, coffee shops, grocery store, restaurants etc. The suite is quite large and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. In addition, there were some books and coupons in the suite for tours etc which we found helpful. We found the suite to be clean and quiet. We would not hesitate booking Katrin's suite again.
L'appartement est très agreable , propre et spacieux dans un quartier calme a quelques pas du métro et a un quart d'heure du centre. Katrin est très chaleureuse et discrète. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de ce séjour.
Le seul bémol est la qualité de la wifi. Mais bon, il s'agit d'un petit détail .
Harlem is the most happening neighborhood in New York right now! Have you eaten at Red Rooster? Have you listened to Jazz at Cecil's? Have you gone to church at St. John the Divine? Have you visited Columbia University? Have you seen the New York Marathon? Have you checked out Amateur Night at the Apollo? Have you biked around Central Park? Have you been to the Guggenheim? All these are within 15 walking minutes from our house!
