  • Quiet apartment in great Upper West neighborhood

    "Because there are few reviews of this on VRBO (log book in apartment shows many rentals), I've included a few extra details.  Bottom line: we will stay here again. The apartment is offered by a management company.  Although this likely increases the price, the assistance offered in regards to email, telephone and the set-up and maintenance of the apartment is a good tradeoff. This apartment in the back of the second floor of a brownstone is located in a toney and quiet residential Westside neighborhood with very convenient access to transportation, shopping and restaurants. No street  noise whatsoever. The floor plan itself is small but  efficient (the pictures on the website are accurate).  A big plus in summer are the two  quiet AC units: one  in the  main room /kitchenette area and one in the  small  bedroom.  They are more than adequate. (I don't know about cold weather heating.)  The supply of  small items had hits and misses. The bedroom and living room, the latter with its small barstool dining table,  are  excellent spaces to spend the few hours you will stay in the apartment. Although the appliances in the kitchenette are good, the counter space for food preparation is very small. While toasting bread, making an omelet on the 4 burner cooktop, boiling a cup of  water or preparing a frozen dinner (yuck) in the  microwave is simple, preparing a more involved meal is not easy. The cabinets over the counter are very high: you need a step stool (supplied) to access beyond the first shelf. These last few comments on the kitchenette may not be applicable to many renters. We found it a minor inconvenience.  It's a great place to stay.  We will surely come back to stay here."

  • Great Location

    "Your flat was perfectly located for all the walking and exploring we did. Located on a quiet street with great restaurants and upscale food market was just a block away. Long flight of stairs with low handrail to apt door may not be suitable for those unsteady on their feet or with lots of luggage. We travel light, so it was no problem. For future visits, we will be sure to book your place again!"

  • Beautiful brownstone perfect for us!

    "Wow, what a find! Darlyn has a wonderful property to offer! At first I was unsure about staying in Harlem, but it was a last minute trip and Darlyn responded to me first! Thank goodness she did! I found out that I love Harlem and I loved staying in a neighborhood rather than in Times Square as I've done in the past! The place itself is very spacious, the bedroom is lovely with high ceilings and a dreamy bed. The pull out twin beds are very comfortable as well. I am PICKY, people. The kitchen was beautiful and well appointed, everything one would need! Linens were Turkish cotton and smelled fresh and clean, which is actually rare. Bathroom is small, but the water pressure is great and I used the floor to ceiling mirror in the bedroom to get ready, so that didn't matter to me. There's a fan, extra comforters, a rolling cart for groceries, air conditioning that works fantastically. Door dead bolts which I liked. The neighborhood is wonderful with coffee shops, delis, restaurants, grocery stores, you're right by the 1 subway line which takes you everywhere from the village to battery park to Columbia. People are friendly and I never felt unsafe with my children. It's a family feel in the building as well. I imagine coming again in the fall with the crisp weather and being so cozy at this special place. I fell in love :) Don't hesitate to visit this place. Such a gem!"

  • Clean and comfortable apartment in a convenient location with professional and friendly management!

    "We stayed in this great apartment for four nights while in New York to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Every aspect of the property met or exceeded our expectations. The apartment looks just like the photos. It is very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located - a perfect spot to call home in NYC. Capri is a true professional and the staff at Gift Expressions are very friendly. We would book this apartment again, and recommend it to friends without hesitation. A real VRBO gem."
