About listing

This is an ideal home base for a Manhattan vacation, especially for families. The apartment is located in Harlem on 129th Street, between 5th and Madison in a neighborhood of historic brownstones. A tree-lined block with a community garden and 2 playgrounds nearby. Private entrance on the ground level. The owners live above. Less than than a 10 minute walk to two major subway lines that take you to virtually all the major site-seeing venues in Manhattan. There is also a busline a block away that travels down 5th Ave. to Central Park, the Met and other museums. The full kitchen and dining room means you can save money and have some relaxing meals at home during your vacation. A washer and dryer in the apartment means you can pack light-great if you have young children. A Pack-n-Play, booster chair or high chair are also available for your young ones. There are grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants and shopping a short walk away. Everything you need for an affordable, exciting, yet relaxing New York vacation. All taxes and cleaning fees included in base price! Community and Convenience: Our brownstone is located in Harlem, which is at the northern end of Manhattan. Harlem is truly a 'community' within a large city. Neighbors know each other and come out on their stoops to say hi. Most buildings are less than 10 stories, so you can see the sky rather than be surrounded by skyscrapers. Residents cultivate community gardens as well as their backyards. It has a friendly atmosphere that is different from many other Manhattan neighborhoods. Yet, our brownstone has very convenient access to see all of New York City's attractions in other neighborhoods. The M1 bus is one block away on 5th avenue and travels right alongside Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim. The 4/5/6 subway (east side) is less than a 10 minute walk, and 42nd Street(Grand Central)is only 3 stops away. The 2/3 subway (west side) is also less than a 10 minute walk and Times Square is just 5 stops away(approx. 20 min). Comfort: We travel often, and really appreciate staying in villas and homes where it's clear the owners care about our comfort and convenience. We try very hard to provide our guests with a comfortable, homey environment. There is a washer/dryer with detergent in the apartment, along with an iron/ironing board, and hair dryer. The bed linens are high quality and the kitchen is fully-equipped with microwave, blender, coffee maker, etc. as well as spices. The apartment has it's own thermostat and hot water heater, so your comfort is under your control. We live in the upper floors of the townhouse, so we are available for questions and directions as you need them. There is a phone with local service so you can book restaurant reservations, and call to make plans with others when you need to. We have provided a binder with listings of local grocery stores and restaurants. There is also wireless internet available if you like to travel with your laptop.

    The apartment was in a nice neighborhood, easy access to subway, good places to eat, was clean and had everything we needed. The owner was helpful with tips and navigation. Drawbacks were very minor, A.C. only in livingroom so bedrooms got a little warm at night but it was very hot when we were there and the WIFI was weak. Like I said the drawbacks were minor compared to having a great space to stay and be part of the community. I have stayed near Time Square in a hotel before and this was a much better option. We were 4 women riding the subway, walking to the apartment at 11 or 12 at night but always felt safe. I would not recommend doing that solo but in the group it felt fine. 29 July 2017 - 12:16:00

    We were very pleased with our stay. Jean was very accommodating and the place itself was very comfortable. If you have kids there is a park nearby, as well as restraints and access to transportation. If you are looking for a place to stay in Harlem you will enjoy this one. 12 July 2017 - 02:48:00

    This property was actually bigger then we thought it was! Very clean had everything we needed and we felt safe. We were provided with info on close restaurants, shopping, exc. we have young children and they were also very comfortable. We were provided a pack and play and a seat for our baby to eat in at the dining table. Linens were good quality and having the washer and dryer was a plus. We had a very comfortable and happy stay. Jean was very prompt with responding to emails and calls she was a wonderful renter. Overall we had a great stay and we are looking forward to coming back next year! Thank you Jean ur rental did feel like a home away from home! 18 June 2014 - 03:50:30

  12. Michael S.
    We enjoyed our three night stay very much. I wouldn't call the apartment fancy, but it was clean and very comfortable, with plenty of room; and everything worked. Grocery stores, restaurants ( The Red Rooster and Sophie's were great) and the subway are within walking distance (six to eight blocks). The owner lives upstairs and responded immediately to every query we made. Thank you Jean. 27 September 2017 - 04:18:00

    4 of us stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. Jean brought us extra necessities without asking, and checking in/our was easy. Jean was very helpful giving us directions to navigate the city. There were several restaurants close by (highly recommend Babbalucci)! We cannot wait to return and we will definitely be staying with Jean again! 03 December 2017 - 16:26:00

    Spacious, super clean apartment close to transit and just a couple of blocks from the growing restaurant scene on Lenox Avenue. Good organic and local food options at nearby groceries with a well-equipped kitchen for preparing your meals. We were in town to meet up with our grown children and new grandbaby and Jean's place made a great place to hang out, plan our day, and then rest up from all the sightseeing. Would defnitely return. 29 December 2017 - 23:20:00

    We were so grateful for Jean's recommendations and help with our trip. We loved staying in Harlem and access to the subway and bus system was very convenient. We felt safe and and were happy we had a warm place to hang out in during this freezing spell. 05 January 2018 - 23:18:00

    From beginning to end, we couldnt have had a more wonderful experience. Jeanne is fantastic with communication, and so helpful with all kinds of other little things. The apartment has everything you need, and then some, from the Wi-Fi to a fully equipped kitchen. Superclean, super comfortable, super friendly, super everything. Highly recommended. 16 January 2018 - 02:52:00
