“A lovely base for a lovely long weekend”

We had the best time staying at Dennis' place. It's a great room in a great building - beautifully decorated, absolutely immaculate, and lovely touches everywhere you look. The location's spot on for exploring New York - you can walk to Central Park in minutes, it took us less than half an hour on the Subway to get to Brooklyn, and there are some great spots for food within a few minutes too. Dennis is a really nice guy and was dead helpful before and during our stay - he knows both Harlem and New York really well, and helped us get the most out of time in the city.

“A beautifully restored brownstone in the heart of Harlem.”

A perfect location if you want to feel part of a vibrant, close-knit community while still being near all of New York's attractions. A spacious and thoughtfully decorated guest room where you can relax after a long day of seeing the sights. Or if you want a bit of excitement there is plenty to see and do in Harlem, like visiting the famous Apollo and great restaurants and bars. Dennis was a brilliant host who gave us plenty of advice about what to do and see locally, and made us feel welcome and instantly at home.

“Really Amazing Place and Host”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

This was a fantastic experience. Dennis has done an amazing job in creating an inviting, super-stylish, rental that feels like a boutique hotel with the warmth and unique touch of a home. The bed was extremely comfortable, the sheets, towels and linens clean, fresh, and new, the bathroom spotless, and the coffee maker and mini-fridge/freezer much appreciated amenities. Air conditioning was built in and worked very well during the summer swelter. Dennis is a passionate and involved citizen of Harlem, who takes pride in his community and in his place that he rents to guests. He is a warm and helpful host, unobtrusive but available for any questions, concerns, advice about visiting NYC, or friendly conversation. I intend to stay here again when I return to NYC later this year.

Very easy access to NY metro. Dennis was very friendly and helpful in recommending good local diners and places to check out.
The area is safe and quiet, near Central Park, good hideaway from the hustle of the city center.

“Excellent accommodation in Harlem”

My partner and I decided to stay in Harlem this time when we visited New York. Dennis' place caught our eye and he had availability for us in June. We were not disappointed for one moment - the experience of Harlem was exactly what we wanted. And with only 4 stops on the Metro from Times Square we can definitely recommend this apartment.

New York is huge and there are so many things to do. However, if you want to feel part of the New York community and experience it like the locals do, steer away from lower Manhattan and stay here.
