Nice place to stay while in New York

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It is close to subway, restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, etc. We felt safe. The location has a complete kitchen, washer/dryer, and even a nice patio to enjoy a cup of coffee or even dinner.

Wonderful NY Brownstone

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location is convenient to transit, restaurants and grocery shopping. There is so much room in the flat. Our family of 5 had lots of space to spread out. The outdoor area was a nice treat for morning breakfast. Clean and pretty well kept. Furniture is nice too. Jocelyn replied to all of my questions and request in a timely manner as well. The guestbook with information was thorough and helpful. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the lack of a few amenities typically found in other flats I've rented, such as extra toilet paper, additional blankets and laundry soap.

Lovingly cared for, peaceful, in an interesting area.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in the Harlem Flat. The Flat was very carefully furnished and equiped. It felt personally looked after. I particularly enjoyed the thoughtful provision of coffee and wine. The garden was peaceful with well tended and blooming flowers. The information on the area, with places to shop and eat etc. was very thoughtful. We found all things as described.

Thankyou!

Great location & lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Harlem Flat! We were looking for a place close to Columbia and this location is perfect. The flat is also walking distance to Central Park and many great restaurants. The flat has plenty of room for a family and everything needed to make for an enjoyable stay. Thank you Joycelyn for your hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in NYC!

Charming garden apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this wonderful apartment with my daughter, her husband, and their two very small children for three nights. There was so much room, especially by NYC standards, to spread out and relax. My 1-year-old granddaughter loved to play with the pebbles in the beautiful, sanctuary-like garden and it was a safe way for her to be outside in the morning while I watched her and drank my coffee. Both regular and decaf coffees were provided...as well as a bottle of white wine! Also liked having the filtered water option in the fridge.

It was warm while we visited, so we used the air conditioning units in each room and the flat felt comfortable and cool. The entrance to the apartment feels like a secret passageway, tucked down and behind the front steps. The windows to the apartment are at street level; there are heavy shutters for privacy at night. We felt very safe in the apartment and in the neighborhood.

Because we had two babies, we were very happy that the flat had a porta-crib and a high chair available, as well as a bathtub. The shower was great; plenty of towels are provided. Washer and dryer were a bonus.

Joycelyn and Norbert were patient in answering all my questions ahead of our visit. We appreciated the information binder in the flat that offered restaurant and shopping suggestions, such as the wine shop and the Best Market grocery, just two blocks away.

The apartment is about a half mile walk to Columbia University. Go to the Hungarian Pastry Shop! Have breakfast at the Kitchenette Uptown...they're both on Amsterdam. Be prepared for lots of steps if you choose to go through Morningside Park.

It's easy to get to the apartment from JFK. I took the express A train from 125th both directions to JFK because no transfers are required. This option is around $8 including the Airtrain. My daughter's family had a very early departing flight so they took a cab which ran about $70 total, including toll, tip and tax.

What a special place at a reasonable price! Very hard to beat the access and location. We would definitely stay at this apartment again.
