Three of us stayed for 9 nights. The apartment was the perfect size for 3 people. The owner, Pierre was happy to meet us at the apartment late at night when we arrived.
The apartment is light, bright, clean and warm (very important for aussies landing in a New York winter!). Beds are cozy and comfy and the kitchen is well equipped, if you do want to stay in and cook a meal one night. Wifi is excellent too.
The apartment is 200 metres away from the 125th St subway station where the express red 2 and 3 line runs 24 hours a day. Travelling by express subway was so quick and convenient - we hardly ever caught cabs. Anywhere we were in Manhattan or even Brooklyn, at any time of the day or night, we were never more than about 30 minutes away from home on the subway. Fantastic! Especially when a 7 day unlimited subway pass only costs $30.
Harlem is a great neighbourhood - the locals are really welcoming and there is always something going on! There are some great restaurants and bars close by (Corner Social, Rooster) and a bunch of shops around the corner on 125th St (H & M, DSW, Polo, Gap).
As a first time visitor to gotham, I absolutely loved New York and staying in such a cool, comfortable, accessible place played a big part in that!
It's a highly recommended pad if you are travelling to New York. I look forward to staying there again next time I visit.

Appartement au calme , dans une rue typique au nord de Central parc; Le quartier est animé, beaucoup de restaurants et facilités. Une très bonne situation géographique, proche des transports avec un accès direct en metro express jusqu'à Times square. Les personnes rencontrées dans la quartier sont très sympatiques , toujours prêtes à vous renseigner ou vous aider.On se sent très confiant, il n'y a pas de problème de sécurité, même le soir et dans le metro; L'appartement est bien équipé, avec une belle cuisine. En résumé, un bon séjour et une location à recommander pour ceux qui veulent s'eloigner des hotels avec seulement des touristes.

Clean, spacious and well equipped.
Pierre met us personally on arrival and helped us settle in, giving us great advice about travelling around New York, the nearest supermarket etc. there is a CVS supermarket just around the corner for those key essentials on arrival like milk and cereal etc
We stayed for 6 nights and purchased a 7 day metro card on his suggestion which saved us money but also gave us access to all the key attractions via the subway which is only 5 mins walk away if that. We had already purchased a New York pass and soon mastered the subway system getting to all key destinations from as little as 10 mins. There is a downtown train literally every 5 mins. Catch the number 3 express if you want to get to an attraction quickly as this misses out a lot of the less popular stations.
It was lovely to come back at night, to be away from the hustle and bustle and to get a good nights sleep before setting out the next day. This upper Manhatten neighbourhood is safe and has everything you need with some real atmospheric restaurants nearby.
If you fancy eating in then you have everything you need in the apartment to cook a full meal and the main Pioneer supermarket is less than 10 mins walk away to buy ingredients.
I will be recommending this apartment to all my friends, family and colleagues
Thank you Pierre for a fabulous stay!

First of all, I want to say that our stay in NYC was very great!
This fully furnished apartment is in a very great condition. My colleagues saved a lot of money. If we had a hotel we would have to book 2 bedrooms for 6 people for 10 days and surely will cost us a lot of money, but we found this apartment and thought we could save money. :D This apartment is close to the subway station, CVS Pharmacy, 24/7 Laundromat, Bar, Fine dining restaurants, and so much more.
The landlord (Pierre) was very kind and nice to us. Will recommend to stay here again next time we come back to New York!

Our group (two couples) stayed at the apartment for three nights in early May. The apartment is great - bright, spacious and airy with lots of space and great kitchen and bathroom and comfy beds. The location is fantastic! A block away from subway and bus routes. Really easy to get to LGa - it's about a 20-30 min bus ride. There are lots of great restaurants super close-by. We went to late night dinner at Red Rooster and drinks art Corner Social, as well as Lenox Cafe for coffee. Went back top corner social for a wonderful Sunday brunch. All were excellent and just steps away! There's also a CVS on the corner which is convenient. Pierre was great too! I'd highly recommend this apartment!

We had a wonderful stay at Pierre's apartment. Excellent location, a 2 minutes walk will take you to the express subway, very convenient to access any venues in Manhattan.
The apartment is bright and quiet and nicely furnished. Very quiet bedroom which is priceless after a long and busy day visiting New York.
Excellent restaurants literally down at the street corner, the area is lively and safe, we were two young ladies and a child and felt very comfortable walking in the streets, even late at night.
Pierre, the owner, is welcoming, reliable and helpful and is blessed with friendly neighbors too!
I highly recommend this apartment and will look forward to stay there again on my next trip.I have already recommended it to friends.

My wife and our two children had really good time in this apartment. The location is perfect to discover NYC and the owner is really helpful and friendly. In case we came back to NYC, that's sure that we will rent this apartment again.
“Fantastic apartment - Stylish, Clean and Convenient!”

I have stayed at this apartment on two visits to NYC and think of it as my home away from home. The apartment is sunny, spacious, clean, comfortable and just a block away from the express subway!! Great restaurants are literally at the end of the block and you are in walking distance from the apollo theater and other great venues.
The apartment has a stocked kitchen making meals at home an option while traveling which is great for saving $$.
The owner is knowledgeable, friendly and reliable should you need him for anything during your stay.
I highly recommend this property and would choose it over any of the over-priced hotels in the city each time I come to town.
“We felt like we were almost a local in Harlem, fantastic.”

Pierre was a lovely and patient host, full of useful tips and information. Very close to subway, great restaurants, central park, Harlem and New York living. How lucky were we to stay in an area with such history. We felt safe and comfortable.
Accommodation was great, trendy, new , clean, airy, like home.
can't wait to go back to New York and stay in this lovely brown stone apartment.

We had a great time staying at Pierre's apartment in Harlem! He greeted us at our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The place was freshly renovated and furnished. Very clean and charming!
The location is great also. It is close to the subway and the neighbourhood is great. We were a group of girls and we felt safe walking around the streets at night.
We definitely recommend this vacation rental and we would definitely return there for our next trip to NYC!
Thank you Pierre for everything! ; )
