Great experience at Harlem. The appartment was big, clean and confortable. It's a perfect place to feel at home at NY. Nice restaurants around and great location, short subway ride downtown and many shops to buy food and clothes (Marshall's was a real discovery)
We could not meet Simon but his partner Clint was
very friendly and offered to help if necessary.
Our recommendation to those who want to experience the real Harlem atmosphere!! ;-)
Simon was great! The apartment is gorgeous, very clean and tidy. We had a familiar situation in Brazil and had to leave earlier than previously agreed and Simon helped us a lot. He was always available to answer questions whenever we needed help. Everything was perfect. Thank you Simon.
O apartamento é um luxo. Espaçoso, lindo, chique. Se você gosta do Halem e não se importa de ficar distante da Times Square, esse apartamento é o que poderia ter de melhor em toda Manhatan. Quanto ao Simon, ele é uma excelente pessoa, gentil, atencioso e estava disponível sempre que precisávamos. Além disto, ele foi muito sensível ao entender um grave problema (de falecimento) que tivemos na familia e que nos fez voltar mais cedo para o Brasil.
My partner and I are not able to describe this listed apartment as upon arrival we were moved to another apartment because there was an undisclosed "issue" with the one we paid for.
The apartment we were moved to had no working Tv (although was replaced with an Apple TV) and the bathroom was below standard.
Basically, we paid for a luxury apartment, and without notice/explanation/apology were provided something that we felt did not meet the original description of what we had paid for.
we felt like we were an inconvenience to the host, who wasn't at all welcoming. I'd be cautious about recommending this place.
Simon's flat is spacious, full of light and spotlessly clean. There are great places in the area to grab a cocktail or some brunch and the subway is about five minutes away. As a host, Simon is friendly, highly knowledgable about the area and easily contactable if any support is required. After a busy day of exploring New York the apartment was a perfect base to prepare for an evening out or to relax with a quiet drink and a take away.
Simon is a very good host. He met us personally and gave good tips and information about the neighbourhood. He was very friendly. The advertissement was spot on.
The apartment was very good and clean situated in a beautiful house and street. It was well equiped. It was nearby the Subway. The harlem district is very pleasant to stay with its own vibe.
We had a wunderful stay.
My wife and I stayed at this brownstone in Harlem and found it to be just perfect for us. We are a couple of 50 something's from Vancouver and we thoroughly enjoyed the local neighbourhood, restaurants and overall feel. The place is exactly as shown and Simon met us exactly as he said he would. He even arranged for a car to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. This property is only a couple of blocks from 2 different subway lines and there are plenty of interesting local restaurants. The only downside was that the a/c wasn't connected, but we were lucky with the weather not being too hot.
