About this listing

The space

We are a professional couple and we have an extra apartment in our brownstone building that we would love to sublet on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. We know how hard it is to find clean, nice, and reasonably priced accommodations as a visitor to our city. What you see in the pictures and listing here is what you get! Since we live in the building we are available 24/7 should you need any help or have any questions.

The fully furnished and newly renovated apartment is located on the third floor, with bamboo floors, stainless steel appliances (dishwasher!), and all the amenities you could hope for. It is a completely private apartment. The living room windows have southern exposure, looking onto the street, while the bedroom windows look onto the very quiet and peaceful backyard. There is a shared luxury washer/dryer in the basement and the kitchen is fully stocked and ready for cooking.

The bedroom has one queen-sized bed. The living has a slide-out queen size sleeper sofa. There is also a twin air mattress or very comfortable cot with proper mattress available if needed.

If you are traveling with a child, pack n' play, high chair, bathtub, blankets, toys, and books can be provided.

Hair dryer, curling iron, iron/ironing board, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, CD player/radio, linens, and towels all included.

We are in a very safe neighborhood, only 10 blocks North from Central Park, and a short walk to the A,B,C,D,2,3 subway lines. You can be in midtown Manhattan in about 15 minutes on the express trains!

Some landmarks around the area include:
Apollo Theater
Studio Museum of Harlem
Cotton Club
The Harlem School of the Arts
Minton's Playhouse
Morningside Park
Mount Morris Park Historic District
Museum of the City of New York

We are also close to many amazing restaurants and great nightlife. The grocery store is only three blocks away. A guidebook with area maps and take-out menus will be provided, plus free high-speed WiFi. Parking in the the neighborhood is free and relatively easy.

We hope you will enjoy our beautiful building and residential neighborhood as much as we do!!

Note: Absolutely no smoking allowed indoors.

We have an great and easy stay at Larah's. Family lives downstairs and we're very helpful and accommodating. Always asking if we needed anything.and helped us carry bags when checking in. Traveling with a 5 month old they had plenty of baby accessories to offer. The place was clean and new. Our only issue was moving our car daily due to street cleaning, but you'll find this most places if you bring a car to the city. Overall a lovely stay and I will likely be back due to traveling to Columbia frequently.

Larah's place is exactly as she described and what shows in the pictures. It is clean, well-equipped and close to subways. Larah is very responsive to my queries, and she got everything prepared prior to our arrival. The community is a quiet and safe place to stay and there are several convenience stores right across the corner. I'm glad I stayed at her place as my first airbnb experience.

overall ok but if you don't need a kitchen then I think a hotel in down town is a better deal (daily cleaning, closer to down town)

Great place along a residential street in NYC. The pictures and amenities listed for the apt. accurately reflected what was available in the apt. We thoroughly enjoyed are stay and would definitely stay again when we are back in NYC.

The apartment is charming and very clean. Lara was a great host and responded quickly to all our questions. The apartment is located very close to two subway stations (lines A, C, and E; 116St and 125St) in Harlem with good restaurants and a supermarket (Best Harlem Market) nearby. We enjoyed our stay and definitively would love to come back.

Originally from upstate New York, recently moved just outside of NYC with my husband and two toddlers. Love traveling, reading the New Yorker, music, and keeping fit. Adore the many many foods available in the city and can't resist a well-made cocktail. Very excited to provide an excellent travel experience for our guests!
