  • We had a good experience at Grover's apartment. The apartment was very clean when we came in and it looked exactly as in the pictures. The location of the property is convenient as it is located to blocks away from the subway 2 and 3 lines. More importantly, Grover was very fast when we made requests. We asked him if he had a couple of extra fans, extra sheets and pillows and soon after more sheets, pillows and 2 brand new fans where in the apartment.

    There were three things that we did not like. First, the apartment has no air conditioning. Air runs through it with the windows opened but not enough to cool it down on a hot summer day. Second, the third bed is not very good. Third, the wifi was extremely slow.

  • Just perfect! Grovers apartment is perfectly situated, spacious and very clean. The communication before and during our visit was superb! We had a great time, thank you very much!

  • Grover was an awesome host! we arrived really late and he waited for us, he took the time to let us know everything about his home and also some tips about the neighborhood. We had a blast in NYC, we loved Grover's home, it was completely comfy and gorgeous. We are completely thankful for everything!

  • The apartment is great!! It's second floor, upstairs.(It's important when you have heavy luggage) With all the things that you need. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. But if you have any problems with your flight (our case) and it's impossible for you check your e-mails and your phone don't work, the owner don't give you any help. We arrived late for the check it (around 6 o clock) and nobody was waiting for us. When I phoned him, the only thing that he did was talk a lot by phone. We had to wait for 2 hours and a half. Then he sent to the housekeeper with the key.
    Advice: if you are on time, good: the apartment is perfect. But if you have any problems, I suggest choose other!!

  • We had an excellent experience with this host. He was able to get us in at the last minute (since the host we had previously scheduled with went AOL). Grover got back to us fast and was very helpful in getting us set up, providing directions, and was overall very responsive. His apartment was lovely as well. Lot's of nice touches, clean, and well decorated. We were very pleased with it. At first, we were disappointed that our first apartment didn't work out which was in the Hell's Kitchen area near Time's Square, but we ended up being glad we were in Harlem. It was much quieter there and everyone was very friendly. Grover's apartment is only two blocks from the metro, so it was very convenient. We would highly recommend it.

  • This was our first time using Airbnb and we were very happy with it. We needed a place in NYC where 5 of us could stay together for 2 nights in order to attend a memorial service and a family gathering . Grover’s place worked out well for us and was accurately depicted on his posting. The place was clean and nicely decorated with comfortable beds, good internet access and television. It was close to the subway station, restaurants, and a CVS. The neighborhood was reasonably quiet (for NYC on a weekend) and the neighborhood felt safe to us. Grover was friendly and responsive to our needs when we asked if there was a way to adjust the heating. We took him up on his recommendation to try Sylvia’s House of Soul Food for supper and did takeout back to the apartment. It was quite good and reasonably priced plus being a little taste of Harlem culture which we appreciated. He seemed like a genuine and honest guy, with real concern for us. The cost was very reasonable for 5 people with all the amenities offered. We would recommend his place to others.

About
As the owners of the property we have realized that there is a need for affordable yet comfortable housing for visitors and travelers. Visitors shouldn’t have to pay upwards of 175.00 per night to stay in a stuffy hotel where they have no real amenities. We are very excited to fulfill this need and have gone above and beyond to make sure every guest enjoys his or her stay. We have a positive attitude and that positivity flows throughout the house. Good energy is our motto!
