Calm Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed coming home each evening and getting away from the hustle and bustle of NYC; It was our oasis, offering us a time to relax before starting again the next day. There were no night noises keeping us up so we slept great. It was in a great location with everything we needed just around the block. We truly appreciated the welcome from Barbara and her attentiveness to our needs. This was our first VRBO experience, and it was so much nicer than returning to a hotel room each night. If we ever visit NYC again, we will definitely be back.

Our home in New York

  • 5 of 5

Barb's immaculate, bright 1909 row house 2nd floor apartment was our home in Manhattan for five days. We can not imagine a better place - we won't be looking - and will be staying on W 124th St with Barb from here on out (this is our 6th NYC visit and this experience outshines everything we've done in the past for lodging). Clean, bright, lovely tiled bathroom, full kitchen, wifi, and we slept like babies. Bright, 12 foot ceilings, sheets were so nifty we had to get info about them so we could get them for home. Barb does it all; she and her family live on the ground floor so she's there if you need anything. We loved Harlem - real folks, real life, people were kind and helpful, did not feel unsafe, super easy and fast subway to downtown, great coffee shops, Whole Foods a block away. We went all over Manhattan, from Battery Park and the Lower East Side, TriBeca, Museum Row, Brooklyn and Queens effortlessly on the subway back and forth from our Harlem home. We took only one Uber, from 19th in Chelsea after a dance performance late at night. The value for us was so great staying with Barb in Harlem, the cost was reasonable. We go to NYC every 5 years but we're talking about going again soon, and bringing our teen grandsons, because we will have our home in Harlem! Thanks for everything, Barb.

Beautiful apartment in the city

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great! Barbara was the sweetest host, she left has the cutest gift basket! She is available if you need her for anything.

This apartment has everything you need and want, and it is really nice size especially for NY! There were 3 of us and we had plenty of room. The subway is right around the corner as well as a Whole Foods and shopping. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the water pressure in the shower.

I would highly recommend this rental!!!

Tout simplement parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous y avons séjourné 4 nuits, 2 adultes et notre fille de 12 ans. Nous nous sommes sentis chez nous. Nous n'avons manqué de rien. Conforme à la description.

Barbara a été accuillante, disponible mais aussi discrète.

Très proche d'une ligne de métro qui permet d'aller à Time Square en 20 Minutes. Commerces à proximité.

Nous y retournerons sans problème.

Merci Barbara

Spacious apt and great location

  • 5 of 5

A bright and large apt with a homey feel to it. The neighborhood is welcoming as is Barbara, the host. We enjoyed the park nearby, galleries, and restaurants. There are plenty of towels, sheets etc but the shower is definitely not a power shower. Overall, a great place to stay.
