We call our loft apartment "Harlem Hearth". It's the most spacious loft in the area with soaring 15-foot ceilings, one giant 40-foot long living space, and a two-tiered sleeping wing in the back. It's also "Harlem Hearth" because it has three fireplaces and exposed brick throughout the unit. Explore Manhattan during the day and come back to your home and hearth each evening for a night-cap and a quiet, peaceful night's rest. You better sleep, because you have do it all again in the morning!

The space

The loft sleeps eight to ten with two, dedicated sleeping areas that sleep up to five people. The massive common area can accommodate an additional five people.

Guest access

You have the place to yourself. Chris and I will be staying one floor below you should you have any questions or concerns.

Other things to note

As a loft space, this is an open-concept floorplan. The great thing about a loft is that everyone gets to share all of the space, but that means there are no doors separating the sleeping areas. The only doors inside the apartment are the bathroom doors. However, at more than 1,300 square feet, the loft offers multiple corners to get some alone time.

Personally, I love the open-concept floorplan. I have hosted several groups of family and friends here and it worked great. The open layout truly fosters a sense of togetherness.

This place is perfectly located near Central Park. The neighbors were very friendly and the area was very safe. There is a Whole Foods 3 mins away from the apt. that was very convenient. Toby, our host, was amazing. He was extremely helpful and gave us everything including peace of mind. Toby went above my expectations. The place was very clean, BIG and VERY SPACIOUS you will not be dissatisfied. I will absolutely be back!

We had a fantastic time in NY. The apartment was great, everything was new and the owner was really kind to us. It was really good located in the Harlem neighborhood. Everyone was really nice with us. The area was really quiet that you can't hear any noise during the night, which is perfect to rest apropiately after all day walking. The subway was only five mins away and the bus stop to the downtown was really near too. The supermarket was also next to the apartment. We loved the place from the first day and we highly recomend this aparment to spend a great holidays in NY!

The place was exactly as pictured if not better, plenty of room for my group of 9 and then some. Toby was kind enough to allow one of the members to check in early and when one of the members became sick and headed back early from the concert we were at, he was there to let her in as we forgot to give her one of the sets of keys we had with us and was generous enough to go to the store to buy her medicine without being asked to. Communication was excellent and he was ready at a moment's notice to answer or take care of questions or concerns we had. Will definitely book again without question. Thanks again Toby, couldn't have asked for a better host!
