About Bill Kammer

Retired NYC Public School teacher, now a full time 'back to my roots' Jazz musician (Berklee College of Music) living in the soul of New York - Harlem. In the past ten years I've seen Harlem grow to what it is today, and want to share it with the world. This is why I have decided to post my duplex apt on this site. I hope all my guests can get a taste of the Harlem culture during their stay with us.

Bill Kammer purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Bill Kammer chose Harlem

I love Harlem for its Jazz history and hoping to further the tradition.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two adults, an eight-year-old and a 16-years-old) rented Bill's apartment for six nights in April 2018. We found it clean, tidy, well equipped and in a great location. Bill warmly welcomed us and gave us some helpful information but was an unintrusive host - we were left to our own devices but given the option of asking him for any help we needed (he lives in the apartment downstairs). Harlem itself felt safe, interesting and relatively quiet, and there are shops, cafes and different modes of transportation within easy reach. And you can happily walk into downtown Manhattan via Central Park, which we'd recommend. All in all, we had a super time at Bill's.

Nice property. Very gracious host!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bill's property. He was a very gracious host. The house is clean and conveniently located within walking distance to the subway, stores and restaurants. Thanks for your hospitality, Bill.

We had a great vacation in New York with our family!

Great Spot in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Bill's condo was great! He is a very hospitable host and met us the day-of, showed us around the place and shared a list of local restaurants and attractions. The place itself was very clean, well-decorated and supplied with bottled waters, soap and fresh towels. This is definitely a great space for large groups-- we had seven guests and it was comfy. The location was decent-- you can walk to the northern end of Central Park and it is not far from public transportation, however if you're spending most of your time midtown and south, you may want a more central location. The positive is that there is usually a high speed subway train that makes commuting much easier and quicker-- just be sure to catch it at the right times! Overall, I would recommend Bill's place to any who want an authentic New York experience.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The apparent was lovely. Comfortable, well equipped and really attractively decorated and furnished. It’s in a lovely quiet street but close to subway and good places to eat. It was the perfect base for our stay and Bill was a perfect host.

Had an amazing time

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had such a great time. We arrived way earlier than we expected on our red eye flight and Bill was so gracious to let us in at 6:30 am! Then we left on a late flight and he also allowed us to leave our luggage so that we could enjoy some more time in the city before we left. Bill was so accommodating and very discrete allowing us to freely enjoy our time. I can't wait for our next NYC trip and would definitely stay in this lovely apartment again. =)
