About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 1 Convertible bed, Sleeps 3

This is a beautiful large one bedroom apt located on 119th Street between Lenox and 5th Ave, with all amenities included in a fully renovated landmark brownstone with a chef's kitchen stocked with all cooking needs. Flat screen TV with cable connection, Wi-Fi, and a sleeper sofa in the living room for extra sleeping quarters. There is also a home office in the bedroom for those that need to do some work during their stay.

High ceilings, exposed brick, ebony hard wood floors - very contemporary and comfortable for your long stay in New York.

Don't overpay on eating out every night, make a home cooked meal in this top of the line kitchen! Washer/dryer in the apartment for daily laundry needs as well.

Trains nearby, park around the corner, shopping, movies, entertainment all near by, great food as well!

All payments for this apt is made through the VRBO/Homeaway Reservation Manager, due to a lot of suspicious activity ID and credit card will be verified upon checkin.

I have another duplex GARDEN apt in the same building that sleeps up to 9 guests guests.

About Amal

I am a real estate agent in NYC, The husband is an entrepreneur who puts too much faith in me! We have two young boys and one baby girl who keep us busy and young. Together we are a strong and passionate team of four who work hard and play even harder! We love Harlem and everything it has to offer, and are forever spreading the word on this amazing neighborhood.

Amal purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Amal chose Harlem

When I met my husband over 10 years ago all he talked about was Harlem, he was rootly involved in the rehabilitation of many Brownstones back when no one wanted to be there, and was passionate about owning a part of history. He was very specific about what he wanted, and sent me out in the jungle with his list to find it. And I didn't fail. Years and three gorgeous kids later, our dream of owning a Brownstone in the historic neighborhood of Harlem came to fruition, and we couldn't be happier to share it with the world. We hope you enjoy the neighborhood, culture and soul as much as we do. We love waking up in the morning and strolling the streets of the city. There is really nothing like it (except a great cup of coffee).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Amal!

We had a great time and enjoy our stay very much. Thank you for your kindness. The apt is incredible! Happy Holidays!

Comfy apartment on quiet street

  • 4 of 5

Very warm, comfy, well-appointed apartment with everything we needed. The street is nice and quiet (no traffic noise). Loved the full-size fridge and washer/dryer--it was so nice to do laundry during our stay without going to a laundromat! The shower is spacious and new and has an amazing rain shower head. Queen bed has a great mattress and thick, cozy comforter/duvet. We slept very well. The sleeper sofa in the front room was like most sleeper sofas: all springs, but we took the futon mattress off of the extra sofa in bedroom and laid it on top and it worked fine. Subway was a 5-10 minute walk and grocery and pharmacy are reasonably close. Amal is a great hostess and always responds the same day (usually within an hour or two!). She is extremely helpful and attentive, so I knew if we needed anything or just had a question about getting around, she would respond. If we were downtown after a long day and didn't want to take the subway home, an Uber ride was usually only about $15 and dropped us off right at our door. Overall we loved our stay!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved our Harlem experience. After a few days it really grows on you. The apartment is close to the underground to head Downtown and you can hire bikes out just a few blocks away to cycle around Central Park. There are some great restaurants in the neighbourhood and a fabulous supermarket just beyond 120th Street to purchase healthy alternatives to eat in.

Not being very tech savvy we had trouble working out the oven and air conditioner. Instructions would have been beneficial.Would highly recommend Amal's apartment.

The appartment is actually even nicer in real than the pictures on the website show. It is in an ideal location, it is clean, furnished very pleasant, covers all needs and is a true home away from home. We are grateful.

When I return to the Big Apple, I hope this place is available. It was perfect for my family of three.
