Happy Holiday get togethers

Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at the Harlem Getaway! We were able to enjoy tasty meals with all 17 of us sitting around the ample dining room table. Having the logs waiting by the fireplaces made it easy to create the perfect cozy atmosphere. The piano in the living room served as the basis for our sing-alongs (accompanied by guitars and mandolin). All first floor living space and the lower level gaming and TV rooms ensured that everyone (from 15 months to 77 years old) could spread out and relax. The spacious bedrooms allowed people to have privacy and the peace and quiet needed to feel like they had a vacation.

Birthday Celebrations

We took our whole family (12) here to celebrate my 50th birthday. What an awesome time we had! Joyce was very accomodating and we had plenty of room to spread out or gather toghether. There was privacy when you wanted it, a t.v. room for watching movies, even a pool table. Everyone had a great time seeing New York at christmas time and staying in this huge house. The grandkids had plenty of space to roam and the area was beautiful in the snow. The subway was a short walk, and even with kids was not a problem. We always felt safe and people were very friendly. We loved disovering the "Harlem Shake" on our last day there. We were so glad we stayed here and made many family memories in New York and at the house.

Girls Getaway

We were six women renting the home and could not have been more pleased. The house is exactly as pictured on VRBO with lots of extras not pictured. Kitchen was well stocked with spices, coffees, teas, and other staples. We relaxed in the large, comfortable living room enjoying a view of the residential street. Very comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Every amenity was available except for hair dryers (bring your own). We were only a short couple of blocks from the subway entrance and traveled easily throughout city without any problems. In-home elevator was a nice perk after a long day of walking in the city. I recommend doing a walking tour of the neighborhood with Joyce at the beginning of your trip. She not only gave us the neighborhood history but also pointed out several good restaurants, nearby grocery and retail shops. We would gladly stay here again and hope to do so. One of the best VRBO homes any of us has ever stayed in.

sibling reunions

This place was wonderful for our sibling reunion. The photos in the website does not do justice to the high quality and charm of the place. There was plenty of room for everyone. The biggest surprise was the comfort of my bed. After running all over NY for the day I was shocked with pleasure as I eased into the bed and could only say WOW!!! I wish I could go back and stay there next week.
