It is an open layout with a comfy couch, flat screen TV and a large dining table. 1 bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other twin sized bunk beds.

About Kate

The owners Mark and Kate grew up in the same town but never met until one fateful Thanksgiving on a flight home, and the rest was history. Both Mark and Kate live in the upper level of the home and rent out their garden level apartment. They like to rent to visitors and share their favorite things to do in the city.

Kate purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kate chose Harlem

This is a beautiful historic home on a street that hasn't changed since 1899. This tree-lined, well lit street is known for its friendly long-term residents who take care of the block. The home is historic and recently renovated for modern amenities. The owners plan on living here until they are old and grey!

What makes this apartment unique

The A,D, B and C trains at the end of the block and the 1 train three blocks away, is one of the best features of this location. You can get anywhere in the city very quickly.

Excellent place, close to subway, quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful basement apartment suite. Located very close to the subway and a grocery store.

The apartment was a perfect place for us to stay and take the subway into the heart of the city. We enjoyed how quiet and clean the apartment was. The apartment was comfortable and well stocked, check in and out was super easy.

We would highly recommend this apartment for a trip to NYC. This was our third time visiting NYC and we enjoyed the amenities of an apartment vs a tiny downtown hotel room.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week in October, 2 adults and 2 children. With 2 bedrooms it was the perfect size for us, and one of the few apartments we found with bunk beds. The kitchen was well equipped and having a washer and dryer was very handy. The subway station is 2 minutes away, at the end of the street, and if you get an express train you can get downtown very quickly. The area felt very safe, and the street is pretty quiet, my son is a light sleeper but he never had problems sleeping here. Kate, the owner was very helpful when we had questions. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here.

Comfortable apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at this comfortable apartment on a nice quiet street in Manhattan. The best part of the apartment is that is just steps away from the ABC and D trains at the West 145th St subway station.Times square is only 3 stops away on the express train and we found we could get just about anywhere we wanted to go in Manhattan via subway in 15-20 minutes. As an added bonus, the shower curtain is a subway map, so we always confirmed our plans with a stop in the bathroom!

We ate every meal out, so we did not make much use of the kitchen but it has all the amenities one might require to cook a family meal. The bed was plenty comfortable and the bedroom AC unit kept us cool, though it could be somewhat loud at times. We used the second bedroom only for storing our luggage but the bunk bed in that room looked comfortable as well. The photos here are very accurate.

Though we did not meet Kate in person, we communicated via text several times during our stay and she even dropped off some amenities (at my request) while we were out one evening. Overall, the stay was everything we expected and I would book this apartment again without hesitation.

First Class all the way!

An amazing place to stay in Upper Manhattan! I felt very safe. The apartment is very spacious and clean. Close to the subway entrance in order to pick up the train to Lower Manhattan. It's located on a very historic street. Backyard is very cute as well!!

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom rental was fantastic. It was very clean and comfortable. Access to transportation, both subway and bus was just around the corner. The owners made themselves available if needed. The amenities, like washer and dryer, air conditioning, dishwasher, coffee pot made our stay in this apartment just like we were in our own place.

When we travel safety is always a concern, we felt extremely safe in the apartment and in the area. We found the people in this area to be very friendly and helpful as well.

Thanks for letting us share your home

great location, good for kids

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a very nice location. It was an easy walk to a subway station, grocery store, and church. Our family really appreciated the bunk beds since we have a son & a daughter. We enjoyed the kitchen for breakfast each day before exploring the city, and returning to a comfortable area for dinner each evening. Fun trip to a great city!
