Live in a beautiful and spacious duplex on the garden level of a classic Harlem Brownstone. Your private and cozy space is situated on the lower level of the duplex. Come and go as you please through your own private entrance. Enjoy our own private garden.
We’re a short cab ride to Yankee Stadium and within walking distance to Riverbank State Park which has a community track, swimming pool, soccer fields, baseball fields and other green spaces- not to mention magnificent views of the Hudson River. There is also a bike/running path that travels down the west side of Manhattan at the park entrance. The apartment is easy to get to from Penn Station and Port Authority. A cab ride from La Guardia is relatively inexpensive ( about $30 or $50 from JFK), but the bus is the least expensive option at ($2.75).
There’s a great supermarket just down the street, along with two hip new bars and a new Japanese pulled noodle restaurant, an amazing coffee shop and a few local bodegas for other items. Around the corner are three excellent restaurants with delicious food and great happy hour specials. For the late night junk food addicts- there are a bunch of spots. Our personal favorite is the local taco truck, Harlem Public, Chipped cup, Hand pulled noodle and THE WALLACE, but you also have McDonald’s, Taco Bell, KFC, Duncan Donuts, and Popeye’s Chicken nearby. There’s also an indian restaurant, two pizza shops and a vegan establishment just steps away. Our area is a very popular uptown location and there are a ton of new restaurants and bars popping up all over the place.

Interaction with guests
We’re a very active family so we’re not always going to be home, but when we’re here together you can rest assured that it will be a comfortable and friendly environment. Maya is always around ( She's our dog, that’s her Job). Our number one goal is to make sure you have a comfortable and satisfying stay with us. We will always be accessible to answer any questions you may have or give recommendations about what to do in the city. Hopefully in person, but if we are not around feel free to text or call us (our cell numbers will be provided once you arrive).
Other things to note
Besides Maya (our dog) we have another new addition to our the family. He is our 6 month old son Andreas. Our little nugget keeps us very busy these days! Mornings are usually a fast paced episode as we are getting ourselves ready for the day and Andreas prepared for daycare. So we may not be as accessible to answer questions in the morning but the shower is still open for use!
P.S. We will most likely be home in the evenings, or close family friends may stop by to visit from time to time. This is a shared-space situation (your privacy will always be respected and your space will have lockable doors.) We’ve already met some pretty fantastic people from all over the world, so we hope that you are just as wonderful, no pressure. Ha!
Please be polite and clean up after yourself- tidiness is a MUST especially in the Kitchen and Bathroom areas. If we have to clean your dirty dishes, crumbs off the counter or your hair from the drain you’ll politely be asked to leave. JUST KIDDING, but you will have to answer Celine :-) ( you don’t want those problems) Please no shoes in the apartment and no feeding Maya (no matter how cute of a face she is putting on for you). She is allergic to most human foods and feeding her will leave her stomach in shambles. Smoking is allowed outside only. Singing in the shower is encouraged. Souvenirs from other countries are accepted! No walking naked (keep your undies on please) and no booty calls, unless you want to sleep in the garden for the night. Other than that, enjoy yourself, the city and you stay in our wonderful apartment!
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
We are hard working, fun loving individuals. We appreciate discovering new countries, cultures, foods, art and music. We are very open minded and are always willing to enjoy something new.

We are non-discriminating kind of people- we don’t care what you look like, where you are from, which god you believe in or your sexual orientation- but we do expect you to be clean, polite and easygoing. In other words we are looking for mature, friendly and responsible individuals to share our space with. This apartment is a no drama zone :-)
