What Hyères Says:

La location possède un jardin qui doit être très […]

Election Dysfunction Discount

With both national parties planning celebrations in NYC I’ve noted no uptick in bookings. Sunday thru Friday is available. Ask about our Election Debacle discount. (Happy Birthday to our new friend and guest Gabriella Di Marco Proietti! – Photos: Guido Gilberti)


“La casa di Kurt è un’”esperienza”. Si varca la soglia e si è letteralmente immersi, circondati, assediati dalla cultura. Anzi, dalla Cultura. Cultura in ogni sua manifestazione: Storia (seppur “giovane” agli occhi di un visitatore europeo), Letteratura, Musica, Arte, Fotografia. E libri. Centinaia e centinaia di libri, che foderano tutti gli ambienti dell’appartamento che vi […]

Charlotte Powell of Brighton’s review.

What Charlotte loved about your listing: “This is without doubt the best Airbnb listing in the world! We arrives to a book lined, music-filled home with a wonderful lit garden, then to discover our wonderful hosts, Kurt and Camilla…they guided us through the best experiences of New York. We’ve visited before but have never had […]

Khrystel Cousin’s review

“Nous avons passé un merveilleux moment dans cet appartement. Le jardin est magique, surtout pendant notre séjour où il a fait très chaud. Nous pouvions le soir y prendre l’apéritif. le quartier est très calme et reposant après une journée bruyante en centre ville. ” “We had a wonderful time in this apartment.  The garden […]

From the New Fu Review

很高的文化素养。房东各方面都想的很周到 – which translates  “A high literacy landlord wants all aspects very thoughtful.”  Fu Zhong. Which Camilla thinks should be on my business card and/or a t-shirt.

“Nous recommandons vraiment cet endroit, nous y retournerons volontiers !!!!”

“Le logement est tout à fait conforme à la description, c’est un lieu très paisible au milieu des livres de Kurt. Le jardin est une bénédiction, surtout en été ! Kurt et Camilla ont été des hôtes fantastiques, toujours prêts à rendre service en cas de besoin et pleins de bons conseils sur le quartier […]

“Little nest that nestles where the roses bloom…”

“Amazing apartment with vintage stereos and books.  Kurt was welcoming and been a perfect local scene guide. The apartment is one of a kind, possibly the only one like it in the world. Highly recommended ”   Foong Chee Mun.  airbnb.  

Jumel Terrace: A neighborhood with a connection to Hamilton—the man and the musical

June 6, 2016 – 8:59am By Marjorie Cohen The Jumel Terrace Historic District is one the most interesting neighborhoods in upper Manhattan, and it happens to be full of history. That’s probably why Lin-Manuel Miranda chose the Morris-Jumel Mansion (for which the area is named) as a setting in which to write parts of his […]

“We were tempted to stay or squat here.”

Kinder, gentler weather, prices, jazz aesthetics, more patient impatiens, and mo’ satisfied guests. Post-revolutionary uptown eloquence & elegance, your way.

Latest review, airbnb, by Vicka Corey (not the lead singer of Iron Butterfly and lyricist for “In A Gada Da Vida” but the other one)

“This place — formerly part of the host’s bookselling business — is a true sanctuary. SO QUIET AND PEACEFUL! Rooms literally lined with fascinating books, and comfy cozy beds and pillows. Literally (ha) every bookworm’s dream retreat. A big beautiful garden with trees out back, in which to read and drink your tea (or coffee […]

What Mexico City thinks.

“Kurt nos recibió en el instante en el que llegamos a su casa con buena disponibilidad y mucha amabilidad. Incluso antes de la hora de ckeck-in. Permitió que dejáramos las maletas en su casa para poder salir en lo que quedaba listo el departamento. Se tomó el tiempo de mostrarnos la zona, incluso nos acompañó […]

Reopened, More Spacious, More Gracious, More Erudite, More Elegant, Mo’Better Than Ever.

The Garden apartment’s never been more luxurious.  Jumel Terrace Books has been reconfigured into the apartment’s Master Suite and still features much of its stock in addition to tape and record players, Harlem-centric collections for each, cable television,  and a 19th century French queen-size brass bed (Jessica Chastain costs extra). The NYPL Room (New York […]
