Very well decorated and equipped house. Very convenient to go to Manhattan by metro. Not difficult to find a parking place in the streets around. You may also use the sightseeing tours buses, which stop 10 minutes walking distance. A shop with fresh food at 5 minutes walking distance. The only thing, which we did not like, is that one of the 3 bedrooms is in the cellar with a small window and not really fresh air there (although there is own air condition).

Perfect Choice!!!! Pick this one!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything they say it is, perfect. Great location, easy walking to resteraunts, market, and subway. This is a steal of a deal. Beautiful house in a nice neighborhood. William is awesome. We had a long trip and he was very flexible as our check in time continued change due to traffic. I also forgot my laptop charger and he brought me one to borrow the next day. Hope to stay again someday. Thank you WILLIAM!!!

Excellent Base for New York Visit

  • 5 of 5

Recently four of us enjoyed an excellent week at William's Harlem townhouse. He was a great host from my first contact and enthusiastic and helpful on arrival. There was an abundance of space so we easily fit into the townhouse and could have privacy if so desired. The beds were comfortable, showers had wonderful pressure, and the computer access much appreciated. Only complaint was that we could have used some blankets to replace the heavy duvet in the warm weather. There was some noise from the apartment above but nothing bothersome.

The neighbourhood was great with a mix of people all very friendly and exuberant. Though gentrifying Harlem still has its own flavour with many store front and large churches and African Amercian cultural icons such as the Apollo Theater. Corner Social and Dinosaur BBQ were great restaurant choices.

Access to the rest of NYC was easy on the subway -- be sure to get a Metropass if you stay for any length of time. Highlights of our visit included the Tenement Museum, The Highline, Frick Collection, and an architectural tour of 42nd Street. New York is an incredible place -- found it friendlier and cleaner than Toronto!

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for my graduation ceremony. It was ideal for a family of 8.... Spacious and exactly as pictured! William was an amazing host. We landed an hour early and he allowed us to check in at 6am instead of 7am and he was up and ready to show us the place. He took the time to give us a tour and answer our questions. The location is ideal do those who know the subway, the 2-3 is just a few blocks away and A,C or 4,5,6 are several avenues away but walkable. The house has all of the accommodations for a large group. We loved having breakfast on the beautiful patio. Most of all we appreciate the friendly service from William and his family. I would recommend this place to anyone and we hope to return soon!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed in this home for 5 days. I so appreciated the reviews of previous guests because it gave me such peace of mind. It's always makes me a little nervous when going somewhere new--but honestly this property did not disappoint! the home is beautiful, spacious, updated, and very clean. The subway is just two blocks away and very convenient. That was our only source of transportation that we used and it worked out great for us. William and his wife were friendly and very attentive to our needs and always responded quickly to emails. We used the car service Will recommended for the trips to/from airport and that was so helpful with as much luggage as we had. This area of Harlem is vibrate and diverse and we never had any reason to worry even late into the night. Everyone was nice and friendly. We ate breakfast at Amy Ruth's, a restaurant close by, and I would recommend that for sure! We loved having a more authentic experience of living life in NYC than we would have gotten staying in a hotel in a tourist part of town. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and hope to return one day!

A family holiday of five adults, a fantastic property, well equipped, clean and spacious.

Well located for the subway to get down town and the local shops and restaurants.

Will is a great host, excellent communication, advice and support.

We would certainly stay there again and don't hesitate to recommend it.
