The Space

You are truly taken care of during the whole reservation, from our communications before you book, to a smooth check in process, to a truly comfortable and convenient stay!

This beautiful, bright, luxury 2 bedroom apartment occupies the entire top floor of a recently renovated brownstone townhouse in one of the most attractive blocks in Harlem (the building and location are so ideal that a prominent NY senator has his office on the ground floor).

The apartment has wonderful natural light with skylights in every room and both east and west facing views -- the sun rises in the kitchen and sets in the bedrooms. It is a very quiet apartment far above the street noise with solid walls and floors and no neighbors above or beside you.

The apartment is only a few blocks away from the 2 & 3 subway lines and a close walk to the 4,5, and 6 subway lines. The bus stops across the street! Very convenient location!

****Please note that our apartment is on the top floor of a four floor brownstone. This means a lot of light. But it also means 4 flights of stairs

Please note that prices vary depending on the season and number of guests. Calendar shows correct prices for 1 person

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed and it's own private bathroom

The 2nd bedroom is furnished with comfy queen-sized air bed that sleeps 2 people. The bed is a Insta Raised Queen Bed with Never Flat Pump (please search the web to see reviews and a picture).

The couch also comfortably sleeps two people.

The kitchen includes brand new modern appliances including a Bosch stainless steel gas stove/oven and microwave and a very quiet dishwasher. Also included are all necessary cookware, coffee maker, toaster, plates, glasses, utensils and a pantry with basic food supplies needed for breakfast or a gourmet night in.

An open living room and kitchen floor plan give the apartment a loft-like feel. The apartment is decorated in a contemporary European minimalist style featuring a large Ligne Roset 2-piece sofa.

Guest Access

High-speed wireless Internet is available throughout the apartment. Two flat-screen HDTVs are located in the living room and master bedroom with 100+ cable channels, DVR and Wii. Central heat and A/C in all rooms.

Full washer/dryer in the apartment so no need to trek to the laundromat!

The 2nd bathroom features a shower with a soaking tub.

Sheets, bath towels, kitchen towels and all other essentials (i.e toiletries, hair dryer and iron/ironing board) are also provided. The apartment is our home, so we leave everything for you to use including anything in our pantry.

Interaction with Guests

We are a low key couple looking for mature and respectful guests in our home. The apartment is yours to enjoy privately. However, there is always someone on hand to answer your questions or even to come to the apartment if you have an urgent need. We will also touch base with you every couple days to ensure that your stay is comfortable.

The Neighborhood

The location couldn't be better for a visit to NYC! Located in the affluent Mount Morris Park district of Harlem, the building is within 3 blocks of the 2/3 Express Train with less than ten minutes to Times Square, 34th Street, the Theatre District, and Lincoln Center. The building is within walking distance to Central Park, the Met, the Guggenheim, the Museum of Natural History, 125th Street, the historic Apollo Theater, and Columbia University.

The neighborhood is very safe and quiet and the building itself is secured with double front doors and an intercom entry system. The well-kept tree-lined streets feature one brownstone after another. There are many restaurants and bars nearby. In fact, the neighborhood is also home to countless celebrities including Marcus Samuelsson (Chef at the famed restaurant, Red Rooster) and Actor Neil Patrick Harris (How I met Your Mother Sitcom).

Getting Around

The apartment is within 3 blocks of the 2/3 Express Train with less than ten minutes to Times Square, 34th Street, the Theatre District, and Lincoln Center.

Other Things to Note
