Large Modern 1BR Harlem apartmentOffered View

ReviewRatingPosted ByDate
The apartment was absolutely perfect for me, my wife, and our toddler. It is located in a modern and safe building, and has everything one needs to feel at home (kitchen appliances, private laundry, air conditioning, bathtub, towels and bed linen, a comfortable and large bed — you name it). Plus, it is always bathed in natural light (priceless in Manhattan!), and full of books and beautiful artworks. Subway is minutes away (lines 4, 5, and 6, including express trains to downtown), and the 2nd Avenue express bus stop is literally around the corner. The area is served by all kinds of commerce one may need on a daily basis, including grocery and convenience stores, drugstores, and restaurants. The host was the most helpful and attentive, and was permanently available. Highly recommended! Excellent Thomas Haddad 7/16/2018 2:45:00 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed staying in Kathy's cheerful, artistically decorated home in Branford, CT. The place is warm and welcoming and well equipped for a leisurely stay. There are two bedrooms with comfortable beds. The neighborhood is appealing -- very close to the shore and an easy drive or bus ride to downtown New Haven and to Yale. And, best of all, Kathy is very congenial and flexible, so there is no hassle in getting access or getting information, as needed. I also stayed in Kathy's Harlem apartment on 124th St in a lovely and well-run ecological apartment building. This too was bright and artistically decorated. It was a pleasure to stay there and much easier than I'd initially thought to get around -- to museums, to various places in Manhattan. I enjoyed exploring Harlem as well.

We stayed in Kathy’s short beach house for 3 months between March-June. Short Beach is a special place and a great location - 2 minutes by foot to the (private) beach, 15 minutes drive to New Haven/Yale and half hour to the nearest ski slope (Powder Ridge - small station ideal for novice children). The house was a little art gallery - very inspiring place to stay. Great neighbours. Kathy was an amazing host, very responsive and fully contactable. We ended up returning for Independence Day BBQ. All in all a magical experience - we hope to return soon! Excellent Rose 10/5/2017 1:55:00 AM
I agree with everything said in the previous review. In addition, all the books and art work make this apartment feel special. The staff downstairs and all the tenants in this building are very congenial. I hope to come back to stay in this comfortable and convenient apartment again. Living in Harlem feels like a privilege. So much is happening here. There is even a brand new Whole Foods a few minutes away by foot. Excellent nadege 9/3/2017 9:27:00 AM
Kathy's apt is lovely, and the location is really excellent. 6 min walk from 125th/Lexington subway station, 12 min walk to free, public Olympic pool in Marcus Garvey Park, great bus access across Harlem, nice eateries on ground floor, and quite safe. Various groceries and bakeries are walkable. My 14 y.o. daughter and I stayed for 12 days in July 2017 and would repeat in a heartbeat. Neighboring people, businesses and pedestrians were all helpful and very nice. Excellent Mary Dorst 7/16/2017 7:07:00 AM
