Great Home Base

  • 5 of 5
The studio was exactly as advertised. Everything was clean and ready to go. Super comfy bed, quiet, and warm studio. We were welcomed by Dennis immediately upon our arrival and were shown the apartment, where everything was located, how it all worked, and given a booklet with several local clubs and restaurants to check out. The music Dennis provided lasted the entire week, and was a welcome addition to enjoy when we were back at the studio. Location was great for checking out the sights of harlem and we found staff at the local establishments, especially Barawine right around the corner, very welcoming. The subway is only a couple blocks away with easy access to the main sight seeing areas in Manhattan.

Un appartement plein de charme

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet appartement dans ce vieil immeuble typique et plein de charme. Bien décoré et confortable il apporte tout ce qu il faut de calme après l'atmosphere trépidante de downtown. Son propriétaire est très sympa et fait tout ce qu'il peut pour résoudre les éventuels petits soucis.

Harlem Hideaway Rocks!

  • 5 of 5
Dennis was wonderful, provided us wth great information and local knowledge. After touring around Manhattan and its busyiness it was great to return to Harlem Hideaway each night. The apartment was nice and cosy compared to the Winter outside. Do yourself a favour and have good soul food at Amy Ruth's. Close to the subway and Central Park. The people of Harlem were very friendly and willing to help out lost tourists.Overall a very pleasant stay of two weeks, if I come back to NYC, I would
definitely return to Harlem Hideaway. Home Away provided a great level of service.

A Cozy Bungalow Getaway in NYC

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time I had ever used a site like VRBO. I was very skeptical, you know what they say, what you see isn't always what you get when it comes to the internet...
In this case, what you see is exactly what you get! Our little bungalow was fabulous, exactly as described. Dennis helped to put all my worries to rest. The location of our apartment was perfect. Harlem, contrary to popular opinion, is safe.. at least in this location. We were close to the subway and some great restaurants, including the Red Rooster and Harlem Shakes (which features some great shakes and tasty jerk fries!) . I loved that I got to experience NYC this way, we felt as if we were truly living in the city. I plan to stay here again and would recommend it to all my friends!! I give it 5++ stars!

Location

From the Owner

This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.

The Harlem Hideaway is on West 119th Street in Harlem, New York City. Marcus Garvey Park is just over a block away, with a public swimming pool, and the famed Central Park is only 9 blocks south of this rental. There is a grocery store and laundromat within 2 blocks, and the nearby Lenox Avenue offers a variety of restaurants and convenience stores. Also on Lenox Avenue, you will find the Lenox Lounge where you can enjoy jazz music, and the Red Rooster Restaurant, staples of Harlem.

Amenities

From the Owner

The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park. I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.
