Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We (family of four) enjoyed a great week in New York at the Perfect Harlem NY Retreat with private entrance. The apartment was just as the pictures show; clean, roomy, full kitchen, and renovated in an interesting way with funky furnishings and details. It is a basement apartment, so there is not much natural light, but there were so many lights and lamps inside that it still felt cheerful.

    Friendly and helpful owners were right on site (above) in the "big" house, so that was handy. We found the location great. Jacob's Restaurant on the corner was perfect after a busy long day in NY; tasty and affordable food with live music on the weekend. The well stocked super market around the corner, the coffee shop further down the road, and public transportation in easy walking distance also contributed to making this indeed a perfect retreat for us.

    The M60 took us straight to LaGuardia airport.

  • Ferris was a great host, she provided all the information we needed before our arrival and was quick to respond to any request.
    We found the place very comfortable and welcoming, and everything we needed was easy to find in the neighborhood.
    It really felt good to be able to relax after spending the day out visiting the city.

    Would definitely recommend for a few days in New York !

  • Ferris is a caring host. She was always available by sms during our stay and ready to resolve all issues immediately. This apartment is a good value for money. Good location close to the subway. And for anyone who still has doubts about safety in Harlem - it was safe at all times!
    Thanks Ferris.

  • A total of 5 of us stayed in Ferris's apartment for almost 2 weeks and had an awesome time. As we are cooked a lot back home, we needed a place that has a kitchen and this apartment has it. What you see in her listings and photos are exactly what you would expect! It's a cozy nice apartment, bigger than most NYC apartments as I stayed in some before. The heater works, great to keep warm, the hot water and toilet in the apartment is kept well. Getting around is not difficult, the wifi is strong, the neighbourhood is safe and you have nothing to worry about.

    Small tip: if you need to grab Macdonald's at night, head to the 24 hours outlet that is opposite Staples/CVS, not the one that is next to the starbucks. My husband and friend did not get their orders right with the Mcd next to starbucks :( This did not stop us from enjoying new york or Ferris's apartment!!!

    Thank you so much!

  • Ferris' place was exactly the cozy space I was looking for, the location is great. Coffee pot and coffee awaited my early arrival (which Ferris graciously accommodated), and the slateboard dresser invites drawing...

Hi I'm a stay at home to 3 awesome kids. My husband and I recently bought and renovated our home. We've lived in NYC for close to 20 years, but just moved to Harlem a few months ago. We LOVE the neighborhood. Great neighbors. Feel super safe even out late at night. I love to eat out, dance and entertain. We don't smoke and don't have any pets. Pretty laid back, so if you have questions or need anything feel free to ask. When we travel we stay in apartments as oppose to hotels so we know what it's like to be a guest in an apartment. We've had some funny, cool experiences in other places. I hope you like staying at our place
