I loved my stay at Joycelyn and Norbert’s flat!!! I needed a long-term stay for a program at Columbia and walk to campus each day was only 20 or so minutes. The apartment was clean and had all the comforts of home I needed for my 5 week stay in NY. The subway is two blocks away and there are tons of restaurants and cafes in walking distance. Everyone that visited me during my stay raved about how perfect the place was. Joycelyn and Norbert were gracious, generous and attentive hosts. I cannot say enough positive things about this apartment. I hope I will have a reason to stay there again!

I was in NYC for work from the beginning of April to mid-June. Upon the arrival of myself and my 9 month old daughter, Norbert was there to greet us. It seemed he was still wrapping up on the cleaning. He said the previous renter had been there for 6 months. Looking closer I could see that the apartment needed a deeper clean. The cable guy came the next day to repair the tv and was there for over an hour which was an inconvenience but the appointment had already been scheduled so I didn’t feel I had much choice in the matter. The third day I discovered the washer only washed clothes on hot, Norbert said he would get someone right away to repair it. It got scheduled and rescheduled four times. Two weeks later the washer finally got fixed. Mid May there were heat waves that reached 85 degrees and a few weeks later 95 degrees. The listing states: “in room air-conditioning provided from May through October.” I asked Norbert to please install the portable units on a Thursday and he said he would do it that weekend. Saturday rolls around and he argues that it’s not hot enough in May to install them. I showed him the coming forecast and the thermostat in the apartment, which read 80 degrees. He begrudgingly took the three units to get cleaned and serviced as they hadn’t been in over a year. The units were installed a week later just in time for the temperature to reach 95 degrees. He made me and an infant wait an entire week for air-conditioning. I was in touch with VRBO at this time who were prepared to move me as they claimed this would be a false listing as it clearly states air conditioning is provided in May. At this time Norbert also stopped receiving my Amazon packages which included infant formula. The apartment needs an update. The appliances are failing, the portable air-conditioning units are old and filthy. Norbert was not respectful of my time and could care less about the health and safety of his renters, even a baby.

This was one of our favorite places to stay. Norbert and Joycelyn made sure to have everything available for us that we needed. The property is very clean and safe. We love the backyard area. Our only regret is that we can’t stay longer.

We had a great experience at the brownstone. Every convenience is there. Everything works great. The unit is spacious and has lots of character. We got to love the neighborhood and felt at home. we appreciated the use of the backyard when the weather was good. Norbert, the host, is wonderful and helpful and kind. We would stay again and highly recommend Norbert’s place.

Checking in was easy. Norbert and Jocelyn were welcoming and helpful. The flat is spacious, quiet and very comfortable. We appreciated all of the amenities and it was very convenient to have laundry facilities in the apartment. It was the perfect home away from home for us, and we hope to be able to stay there again in the future.

My three cousins and I stayed in this beautiful and well appointed apartment for three nights. I communicated with Norbert and he attended to all of my requests and went out of his way to accommodate us. He could not have been more professional and welcomed us warmly to his home with kindness. There was a bottle of red wine waiting for us upon arrival. The apartment is furnished beautifully and the appliances are updated. It is a spacious apartment and stocked with all necessary appliances and supplies. The bedrooms are in the back and allow for a peaceful and comfortable nigh rest. We also enjoyed a Sunday brunch in the beautiful outdoor area. Norbert was gracious and extended the checkout time for us which allowed for stress free departure from apartment. All in all, we had a terrific time and we will not hesitate to stay in this beautiful apartment again. I highly recommend this Harlem gem of an apartment as well as the generous and hospitable hosts.

We had a lovely time in Norbert's brownstone apartment. The place is very well reachable with public transport and right in the middle of things - lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance. Central Park is close by and ideal for a morning run starting at the apartment. While all the exciting hustle and bustle of NYC is sometimes a bit much, the tranquillity of the apartment is an excellent place to return to after a long day of sightseeing, shopping, eating, etc. One barely hears a siren while in the apartment which must be quite unique in NYC. Norbert was an excellent host and super easy to communicate with. He had lots of good suggestions, was always there to help and also allowed us to check-out late which was much appreciated. The cherry on the cake was a nice bottle of Prosecco for my birthday. Thanks again for that nice touch! All in all we had a great experience staying in this apartment and would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore NYC and Harlem and at the same time stay in a typical brownstone place which has been upgraded to modern standards.

Die Wohnung ist in einer sehr schönen Wohngegend und super vernetzt mit U-Bahn und Supermarkt. Der Vermieter ist sehr feundlich und hilfsbereit. Nach einem stressigen City-Tag ist es eine Wohltat in die Ruhe der Wohngegend einzutauchen.
