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 Manhattan

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

Perfect location. Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Bill's town home was wonderful. He is an excellent host, full of information about the local area as well as downtown NYC. It was a short walk to the subway which takes you anywhere in 15 minutes. We loved Harlem, the friendliness of the people, and the flavor of the community. We experienced a real authentic neighborhood that you won't get staying in a hotel. The home was spacious. We slept five people very comfortably with room for more. Parking wasn't a problem at all. We even found street parking, and it was free! We utilized the full kitchen for some meals. All in all, our stay was great. We would highly recommend Bill's place to anyone coming to New York City.

Great Location, Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Harlem is lovely. It's location is great - no more than a 5 minute walk to the closest subway line, and no more than 10 minutes to 2 more - so connecting to the rest of the city is easy. It slept 4 of us comfortably with no problem!

Lovely house, perfect for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

The house is on a quiet, tree lined street. Bill met us and explained everything we needed to know. He was very attentive to our needs and wants. There was fruit and juice in the fridge, which was wonderful until we could get to the grocery store. We had 7 people stay for a few nights and then 3 people for the whole week. While 3 people didn't have a bedroom for the first few nights while all 7 of us were there, the house did not feel too crowded.

The house was just a few blocks from the subway, which we used to get pretty much everywhere! We all had a wonderful time seeing the sights!

Quaint 2 story apt.--great location to 116th St. sub station

  • 4 of 5

We stayed from May 31-June 6th. Never had any issues with the rental. We traveled with 2 children, ages 12 & 14. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms for this reason! Bill even had us stocked up with a few breakfast supplies, coffee, etc. although we never were in the place for lunch and dinner...enjoying the city life instead! We did eat in Harlem 3x...Little Bamboo, Sexy Taco/Dirty Cash, and Sattocasa Pizzeria...all great places. Thanks, Bill, for a great, enjoyable place to stay for our virgin trip to NYC. We'll be back.

Before our stay, we read the reviews which led us to choose this place to stay. We cannot agree more with everyone else that gave Bill's townhouse a five star rating. He is a wonderful owner and host. We would not hesitate staying there again on a return trip to NYC.

Perfect choice for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights at Bill's apartment. There were 4 of us--my husband, our 18 year old daughter and a friend of hers, and myself. The layout worked perfectly to give the girls space of their own so that our early morning walks in Central Park and their late night gab-fests didn't interrupt each other's sleeping.

Bill is great to communicate with about the rental and was very helpful before and after we arrived.

The apartment is in a neighborhood of 4-story brownstone buildings. The streets were lively in the evenings which gave the area a great urban feel, but it was also quiet at night for sleeping. There are multiple subway and bus lines within a short walk of the apartment so we had no trouble getting everywhere we wanted to go during our stay.

The unit is very clean and Bill has stocked it with everything needed for a comfortable stay. He even left some breakfast foods for us. Having the small kitchen saved us time and money prepping breakfasts and a couple dinners (when we were back getting ready for evenings out). Having two bathrooms made getting ready in the mornings and evenings much quicker.

We would happily stay at Bill's place again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Manhattan. I regret that we didn't have as much time as we'd like to explore the immediate neighborhood and Harlem as a whole, but it was a great springboard for all our activities.
