This studio was in the perfect location to enjoy every corner of NYC: easily accessible by public transportation, across the street from a great grocery store, and a quick walk from Central Park. The apartment is well cared for. There is no AC, and it does get oppressively hot in the summer in NYC! The internet/cable was shut off twice during my three month stay in this studio. However, Lee worked as quickly as possible to resume service. Thanks for hosting me!
Lee really helped me out of a tricky spot. I arrived in New York with my husband and baby and nowhere to stay. He accepted my offer and was really patient with me while I had to verify my account which took ages. It was such a relief when we got his flat and I was really grateful of his flexibility and tech support!
The location is in a really cool spot in Harlem if you're open minded about staying somewhere that most tourists probably don't go. Lots of good restaurants nearby, friendly people. it wasn't dangerous if you're used to living in a big city.
The flat itself was not the best place I've stayed. On the plus side it was a good size for a New York apartment but it could do with a really good clean and I especially am not convinced the sheets were fresh, which was a bit disconcerting. Also the bed was broken, the slats kept falling down which led to a bit of a bad nights sleep.
Lee was a great host. Easy to deal with. The studio was lovely, clean & tidy. Excellent security. Location is superb. Close to Harlem Tavern & Starbucks.
Great host! Lee was very attentinve and flexible with us. He also gave us a lot of advises about NY. The apartment was exactly as Lee describes it and his location was perfect for a trip in NY. We defenetely recommand Lee's apartment for a trip in NY.
Lee's full service apartment and attention made our visit extremely easy and fun. Much recommended.
Lee was super nice and chill. He totally was helping us find cool things to do in the city. Unfortunately we only had two days because we probably would have hung out, he was so helpful, texting with spots he thought we should check out and answering questions. The apartment was clean, uncluttered, and super cute with all of these heart warming wall hangings like "the best things in life... aren't things." Would def stay there again, hopefully a little longer next time :)
We stay at Lee's place in may 2013, it was our first trip in NYC.
The appartment is very well located : very close to subway and bus stop which run you to the heart of the city in 15 min ! Central park is also at a walking distance, and the appartment is just accross a starbuck coffee, markets for food supplies, and few restaurants. You will find every thing you'll need in the appartment : well equiped and clean.
The are lots of churches where you can assist to a gospel service on sundays very close.
That is not mentionned :
- it is on the 3nd floor of a well secured building, very quiet,
- cleaning fees are required.
Lee was a great host, easy to communicate with, flexible with our check in & out and gave us advices about our trip !
We recommend this place !
The apartment/studio is indeed spacious, clean and tidy and has all the comfort you need, wifi, cable, a large kitchen with a dinner table, a desk, comfortable king size bed, a large bathroom and even closet space to hang your clothes. The subway (B,C) is only two blocks down and connects well to other subways. I was familiar already with W-Harlem, one of the reasons I decided to stay here. Make sure you also explore this area, for a true New York experience.
Lee is a great, attentive and considerate host, he was very flexible when it came to arrival and departure, helped me with my suitcase and getting a cab. Would definitely recommend this listing, Thank you Lee for a great stay!
We spent great holidays in new york with our two kids at Lee's home.
The apartment is exactly as it looks like in the pictures, welcoming and very convenient even for 4 people (we had an airbed for the kids). The apartment is very quiet and ideally located to visit Manhattan, close to the subway (10-15 min to time square). Shops and restaurant are just around including a supermarket, laundry and levain bakery (the best cookies of New York).
Lee is very friendly and care about his guests. We do recommend staying at lee's home.
Response from Lee:
Thank you Antoine, hope you had a safe flight and it was great having you over. I am happy you enjoyed your stay here with your beautiful family.
Lesego was a very good host, he met us and we went to the house together. He made sure we were settled well, provided clean linen for us and made sure that we understood how to travel and where to go to discover New York. As a first visit to New York, I was very impressed, he's house was clean and felt very comfortable. The location is ideal for someone who wants to discover manhattan and everything that comes with it. I highly recommend him to anyone considering to stay in manhattan."
