Description from owner

Description

My place is perfect for those who want to stay in the East Village - known for it's trendy restaurants, hot nightlife & vintage shopping. Includes a queen bed with an attached shared bathroom, your own TV and a friendly host who provides a simple breakfast each morning. Contact me for a full description, I have a letter ready to send. Informed guests are Happy Guests!

All races are welcome and am LGBTQ friendly.

AMENITIES:

• Breakfast - Cereal, fruit, Toast plus Coffee & Tea

• Queen Pillow-top Mattress and a Folding Slim-Twin bed if needed for a third guest. The folding bed is available with only two guests for a fee of $25 to cover the extra laundry costs, but you must request before arriving.

• Clean Sheets, Bedding and Towels

• High Speed 5G 100mbps WiFi Internet

• Your own Smart Television with access to my cable package - I provide headsets for guests but feel free to bring your own.

• Storage - Half a closet & a dresser for your personal items.

• Hair-dryer & Straightening Iron

• Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap

• Full Length Mirror

• Umbrella

• Iron

• Control over Heater and Air Conditioner in the room.

THREE GUESTS: Three guests in the space is only advised if money savings is of major importance or if there are young children, as the room is small. If there is a third person request, I do have a cot with a mattress pad. It will fit in the room, but it is a tight fit making movement difficult. It can easily be stored right outside the bedroom during the day or in the closet. I will of course provide bedding for this mattress.

BATHROOM SHARING: While hosting, I sleep in the living room on the sofa and we share the bathroom. I will need to go through the bedroom to access it. I do not access it at night and normally will wait until guests are out for the day before entering. I have only accessed the bathroom at night once in 2 years. I do my best to provide my guests with a sense of peace and will usually have my earbuds in listening to music or TV.

BEDROOM: The room has sliding barnyard door, and is small (but normal for this area of NYC) but fine for two guests to share. The bathroom we share is attached to the Bedroom. I do my best not to access the bathroom while my guests are in the bedroom so as not to infringe on their privacy. Most guests never see me in the room their entire stay.

The bedroom has a very comfortable queen sized pillow-top mattress bed with 4 pillows. The bed has been raised so it is higher than normal beds but I have steps so shorter guests like myself can get into the bed easily. There is a full-length mirror, a wall heater and an air conditioner which you can control. Half the closet is available for you to hang your clothing and I have a mostly empty dresser for you to use. In the cabinet space are extra sheets, a blanket, umbrellas, a fan and an iron. In the winter, I provide a comforter for you to sleep under as well as extra blankets.

Getting around

I am only 1.5 short blocks from the F subway line. There are many more options about 4 to 5 blocks away such as the B, D, J, M, Z,4,5,6,. Also the M15 stops on my corner, which is a great bus to bring you right to the ferry for the Statue of Liberty. On the other corner is the M14A which can take you across 14th street to the Chelsea food Market and the Highline Park. There are also other bus options close by. I always recommend my quests use the MTA Tripplanner app while in New York. The NYC Bus and Subway system is a very complicated system that no one, not even a native New Yorker has all the schedules memorized. It has the most up to date scheduling and can give the most accurate directions between 2 points.

Interaction with guest

I am happy to give you all the guidance you want. I am a native New Yorker and have surprised myself since I started hosting with how much I know about New York City. I can suggest some activities and places to see that are off the beaten path and I can definitely tell you where to shop! I know what museums are free and how to see the Statue of Liberty up close for free. I probably won't be giving you a personal walking tour but I can get you set-up for a great one to take on your own. If you would prefer minimal interaction, just let me know. I am home a lot but I am very good at just "being" in my own personal space.
