Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • cleaning $100
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

Rates are non-negotiable and will not be lowered. If you are unwilling to pay them, please do not contact us.

We do not give full or partial refunds for late arrivals or early departures under any circumstances.

We cannot accommodate smokers. We appreciate your interest and are sorry to lose your business, but please do not contact us if you smoke.

Entrance and common areas of this building are under 24-hour camera surveillance.

Apartment is not child-proofed. Not recommended for infants, toddlers or children below the age of 6.

Our website says that "This Owner Accepts Fewer Booking Requests Than Average." This is not accurate. We often have to cancel a guest's initial booking request and then redo it in order to lower the deposit amount. VRBO's system defaults to a large initial deposit, and we do not want to take a lot of money from our guests who may be booking several months in advance. You never know what can happen, and we do not refund deposits. We do not want to see anyone spend a lot of money up front which is non-refundable and then have to cancel their trip and lose a big deposit. So while it appears that we reject a lot of booking requests, we do not. We REDO a lot of booking requests.


Owner's cancellation policy:

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Owner info

About the owner: I was born and raised in NYC and have lived here almost my entire life. My dad's old office was literally right next door to the world-famous Apollo Theatre, so my love affair with Harlem began early. I love the diversity and excitement of NYC! I think it is one of the best places in the world to live, especially if you cannot afford to travel. There are so many different cultures on display in NYC. And Harlem is in the midst of a second (third? fourth? twelfth?) renaissance which makes every day an adventure. Since I've lived in this neighborhood, I don't think I've ever been bored a day in my life.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Manhattan, New York, NY, USA:
The patterned tile floor of the vestibule, the spectacular woodwork which distinguishes the hallway and staircase; the fireplace with its pillars and tile work; the bay windows in the master bedroom - a brownstone is more than a building; it is a historical snapshot, a beautiful example of the elegance of a bygone era. This property is a living, vibrant museum. We manage and maintain it with a great deal of love.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
While I would never want to be bored, I also appreciate peace and serenity. The stately beauty of this building has a very calming effect on its residents which makes it very easy to relax after an exciting day of life in the big city.
