All room have ample storage space. Each room comes with a bedside lamp, chest of drawers, bedside table and a medium sized closet. The bedrooms are fairly large for a Manhattan apartment. My bedrooms are are well decorated with different themes to make your experience as relaxing as can be.

The beds are fitted with micro fibre sheets which are very soft. I have plush DKNY towels, a Ralph Lauren bathrobe and warm slippers ready for you. There is also a blow drier, ironing board and iron box to cater for you needs on request.

My apartment has several great amenities for the price so make your reservations early for an quick pre-approval. I usually respond within the hour. I have the fastest WiFi available on the market however, because of the way it is cabled into the house (something I can't control as a consumer) the WiFi is strongest in the living room.

Interaction with guests

I am usually work from home and generally available most times to help you settle in, get comfortable, chat about your adventures and provide you with any guidance in the City. I also eat a few meals with my guests at home and I make the best banana bread for breakfast. I have maintained contact with most guests of mine many of whom are now close friends.

The neighbourhood

There is a lot to enjoy in the neighborhood. Lovely restaurants such as the Grange, Pointy Bistro, Manhattan Coffee Shop and many more.
The neighborhood carries a lot of history from the HARLEM Renaissance. The apartment is walking distance (20 min or 2 subways stops) from Central Park. It is also a 15 minute walk to the Riverside State Park that has an aquatic sized swimming pool, skating ring, basket ball courts, tennis courts and a very well maintained running track. The Yankee Stadium is also within reach.

The Apartment is 4 blocks away from the 135th Express subway line 2 or 3 or from 145th street. It is a 20 minute subway ride to Times Square and Penn Station (34th street). It is a 30 minutes walk to Central Park.

I stayed at Nkata's apartment for a week in September 2016. She is an amazing host, very attentive and helpful. The flat is fully equipped, beds are very comfortable. The building is easy to find with subway stations near. There are several food stores around. It takes you 30 minutes to get to Central Park if you want to walk, or 7 if you do by metro. Highly recommend Nkata.

Met Nkatha for the first and we immediately kicked-off like a family and great friends. She made sure I got the keys to the beautiful room shortly after I touched down in NY. She also gave me a few tips on how to move around the ever busy city. Nkatha then gave me the license to not just her kitchen, but also to her food; free of Airbnb charges! The banana bread was a wow! Nkatha was/is a darling.

The room was as it is shown in the pictures. Nkatha was very kind and welcoming. Overall it was a fine experience. Cons. I think the cleaning fee is too much for the room. It should be lower than that because its almost half the rate of one night stay. If Nkatha could do something to get the interment working in the room, it would be much convenient!

Nkatha was a very friendly, welcoming, warm host who went out of her way to make me feel welcome and settle in, providing me with maps and helpful advice. Location-wise, this was perfect for me. You're only 4 blocks to the nearest subway station which is a comfortable walk. You're also close to convenience stores and fast food so you're never stuck! Parking can be a challenge but that's to be expected in NYC. My bedroom was very clean and exactly as the photos. However, be aware that this is a 4 bedroom apartment so expect to be sharing the kitchen and bathroom with others. I didn't know this when I was booking so you might have a bit of a wait to use the bathroom! Had I known the apartment would be full, I wouldn't have booked here. It served my purpose though. Good spot if you plan on being out all day long which is easily achieved in NYC!

I was in NY on business and decided to stay an extra two day to check out the city at Nkatha's. Apartment was very clean and she was of great help with suggestions. The community is not my favorite but Nkatha's place was very spacious and affordable. Love her. My first airbnb experience and I would go back to her.
