  • Great hosts and townhome.

    "Our experience at this cute little townhome was very nice. There were 4 of us and we all stayed very comfortably. This remodeled property was clean and very well-kept. We had absolutely no complaints about the townhome, with exception of a running toilet that we pointed out at the end of our stay, which certainly was no big deal. Tony immediately apologized and was going to have it taken care of ASAP. We didn't do much cooking (who spends time cooking when you are in New York?), but the kitchen had the things you need, which was all we cared about. Tony and Christine were awesome hosts and very responsive both before, during and after our arrival. There is a sweet small grocery store literally within a block, which was quite handy, and we did buy a few things we needed at the little "department" type store just across from the grocer. We flew into LaGuardia and took Uber (not a taxi). The travel time was about 20 minutes and cost us about $28 total. Not too shabby!! This was our first experience with the Uber app. If you have not used it, download the app before you get there. It's private people driving you around in lieu of high taxi fares. We used them 3 times while we were there to go to and from the airport, and one evening when we were too exhausted to do the subway to get home after a night a eating and drinking downtown. I do, however, have to point out that the neighborhood was a bit challenging for our tastes. We were safe and never felt threatened nor pan-handled, but we did have to walk to subways and buses through some very sketchy "activities" at times. The street the property is on was quiet for the most part, but Lexington Avenue had it's "moments." I would have to rate the neighborhood low. All in all, for the price, don't expect Manhattan...but this property was worth the stay. We experienced New York and all walks of life during our week there... and that was okay with us. Afterall, it's those interesting and colorful experiences that you remember most... right? We had plenty of fun and enjoyed our time. Thank you so much Tony & Christine."

  • What a Great House!

    "My daughter and I stayed here this past week. It was actually the second time we've rented this property. I would highly recommend this property! The first time we stayed here we had a large group - 10 people in all, and it accommodated us all quite easily. This last visit was just my daughter and I. Joyce was kind enough to allow just the two of us to stay, although the house is really designed for larger groups. We love the neighborhood, completely safe and friendly. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. It's a short, easy walk to the subway and then 15 minutes to Times Square. There are a number of restaurants locally that are an easy walk and very good! If you have a larger number of people, we highly recommend this property!"

  • Great Place to stay..

    "Just returned from my trip with 5 ladies and we can't say enough about how wonderful this apartment was. The beds were so comfortable after a long day walking around town. It was so quiet we almost forgot where we were. The neighbors were friendly and the guys that work at the corner store were awesome and very helpful. Subway was easy to get to we did use UBER to get home at night (fairly inexpensive). I look forward to staying here again."

  • Great Urban Getaway

    "The property looks exactly like the pictures. My friends and I wanted to experience living amongst the people in a Harlem brownstone and we definitely got that. We were close to public transportation and used it easily and often. There are great places to eat all around and a grocery store within waking distance as well. We felt safe and cozy in the place. The only negatives were lighting issues. The dining area had a light out and it was subsequently very dim. Also, the front door area has a light with a string pull but the string is too short to reach so we used our cell phones to see the lock. The back patio was nice but we couldn't enjoy it at night due to poor lighting in the table area. So a bit better illumination will take this rental to five star status. Thanks for the great stay Amal."
