About Bill Kammer

Retired NYC Public School teacher, now a full time 'back to my roots' Jazz musician (Berklee College of Music) living in the soul of New York - Harlem. In the past ten years I've seen Harlem grow to what it is today, and want to share it with the world. This is why I have decided to post my duplex apt on this site. I hope all my guests can get a taste of the Harlem culture during their stay with us.

Bill Kammer purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Bill Kammer chose Harlem

I love Harlem for its Jazz history and hoping to further the tradition.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The apparent was lovely. Comfortable, well equipped and really attractively decorated and furnished. It’s in a lovely quiet street but close to subway and good places to eat. It was the perfect base for our stay and Bill was a perfect host.

Had an amazing time

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had such a great time. We arrived way earlier than we expected on our red eye flight and Bill was so gracious to let us in at 6:30 am! Then we left on a late flight and he also allowed us to leave our luggage so that we could enjoy some more time in the city before we left. Bill was so accommodating and very discrete allowing us to freely enjoy our time. I can't wait for our next NYC trip and would definitely stay in this lovely apartment again. =)

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we got off the plane at LaGuardia, We were in contact with Bill....he is an amazing host! We arrived a little before check in time, and he greeted us with a welcoming smile and a hearty “come on in”.He is very knowledgeable about his neighborhood and NYC! We had lots of room to spread out and relax in the evenings after spending countless hours sightseeing!

Bill anticipated and saw to our needs BEFORE we knew we had a need! The fresh fruit, bagels, cream cheese and juice were a nice and very unexpected touch! We arrived to chilled water and the above mentioned after many hours of flight, and it helped pep us up for our first adventure! The kitchen was surprisingly stocked with the basic cooking needs, plus several bonus.

This apartment is centrally located, a very easy walk to the subway trains and many nice restaurants. We learned the subway schedules very easily, and travelled to all boroughs of the City during our stay!

Thank you, Bill for being such a gracious host and to all the special touches you added...such as the welcome sign and the use of a book from your private library!

Happy thanksgiving!

Quiet and cosy apartment in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

Bill put us up on a very short notice because the apartment booked months before had sudddenly been cancelled. So it was Harlem instead of Chelsea which was quite a challenge. The neighborhood is safe but still a little bit rough, especially at night. However, we felt very comfortable in Bill´s nice apartment. He was very helpful and the apartment is very spacious although the bedrooms themselves are small. The kitchen had all the necessary facilities and equipment. Our suggestion would be to throw the seventh (!) bed out of the room and instead offer a real dinner table and real chairs.

Perfect for a girl's getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us came from three different cities to meet in NYC to celebrate my sister's birthday. Bill met us upon arrival and gave many useful suggestions on things to do and places to eat. He also made a notebook for convenience of the guests, highlighting these things. The residents on our street were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. The condo is very close to the subways and easy to get cabs. Bill was a very good host and we lacked for nothing. We will return! Thank you, Bill, for making our stay so nice.
