You have found your oasis in the middle of New York City. Designer’s own garden apartment. A newly renovated, gorgeous 900 sq ft, 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom garden level apartment in a centrally located Harlem brownstone on a historic, tree-lined street.
The Guest Apartment – just bring your toothbrush (but if you forget we can get you a new one!).
This 900 sq ft/84 sq meter apartment is fitted for the most discerning traveler where you will find all the comforts of home ready for your arrival. The check-in/entry system has been automated so you can access the apartment at any arrival time should no one be available to greet you.
All bedrooms are located in the back of the building facing a lovely and serene walled garden – peace and quiet awaits you! The master bedroom is outfitted with a queen sized bed and a reading area. The second bedroom has two, twin sized beds perfect for both adults and children. Walls of closets abound! Queen and Twin sized aerobeds are also available for additional guests should your party be slightly larger.
You can choose to go out to dine at all the amazing restaurants that NYC has to offer but, if you decide to take an evening off and stay in, you have a fully equipped kitchen and dining table that seats six waiting for you at home. A breakfast bar is also available for that quick snack before you head out for a day of sightseeing. The main living area is open and airy with a beautiful non-working fireplace.
The apartment has wireless Internet service. A 46” wall mounted flat screen HDTV with Amazon Fire TV and Netflix is located in the main living area. There are air conditioning units in the bedrooms (in season).
Linens, towels, hair dryer, and an ironing board are provided. For those with young children a pack and play crib is available. The full kitchen is equipped with a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, cups, eating and cooking utensils as well as basic supplies for your use if you choose to dine in your home away from home.
The rental terms accommodate up to 4 people. Additional persons will be charged $25 per night up to a total of 7 guests.
Access to the apartment is automated to accommodate off hour arrivals and departures.
If you wish to check-out after 11am, notify me regarding this at the time you reserve the apartment and I will try to accommodate you. Otherwise, the 11am check-out is mandatory. We all try to squeeze extra time in at check-out. For a hotel, this might not be a problem. We on the other hand have only one rental. Please be considerate of this.

Другие важные подробности
There has been much in the news lately about the legality of short term rentals in New York City.
The law targets Airbnb advertisers with a $7500 fine in violation of a state law passed in 2010 that bars rentals under 30 days in multiunit New York City buildings if the owner or tenant isn’t home during the guest’s stay.
To be clear, our building is an owner occupied townhouse/private home and not a multi unit building. While our guests have the space and privacy of a private apartment you are in fact sharing our home while we are in residence and we are thus not in violation of any laws or rules. So when booking far in advance you can take comfort in the fact the regardless of any rules or enforcement, our listing will remain active and available.
Between June 1st and September 8th a 4 night minimum stay is required.
No smoking inside the building.
No unlisted additional guests or parties.
Please turn off lights when you are not using them.
Please refrain from moving furniture. Do not move the beds into a new arrangement.
Please treat the apartment with respect and courtesy. Any damage done to property must be paid for by the renter.
If keys are not returned, the security deposit is not returned
