My place is 2 short blocks from The Metro East train station (29 min ride to the heart of NYC in Times Square at Grand Central Station - Train costs $15.50 Roundtrip per person). You have exclusive use of our third floor with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room area and a small kitchenette (all apprx 1100 sq ft). My place is great for everyone! Also this is a shared space with my family. We sleep on the 2nd floor (with our pets) & you would share a staircase and main entrance with us.

The space

This beautiful home is just two blocks away from the Metro North train station that takes you directly to NYC under 30 minutes.

Guest access

Guests will have exclusive use of the entire 3rd floor which includes 2 big bedrooms, a bathroom, a living area and a small kitchenette which includes a Keurig coffee machine, a microwave and small refrigerator. You are also more than welcome to use our laundry facilities in the basement as well as our main living room on the first floor if requested. The space upstairs also includes a television and Wifi. And to clarify, the third floor is accessible through a shared front entrance and a shared staircase with our family. It does not have a private entrance or door separating the floor from the rest of the house. My family sleeps on the second floor and you will walk through our landing/hallway to get to the third floor. There is an open staircase meaning you can hear us on the second floor (though our doors will be closed and we will try and be as quiet as possible). There are 35 stairs up to the top!

Interaction with guests

We will be in the residence and I am more than willing to take you to a grocery store for food or for a quick ride elsewhere as needed. Just let me know! Or if you prefer not to interact at all, no problem.

Other things to note

We do have kids and pets. Kids will be at school and in lessons most of the weekdays and we will do our best to keep noise at a minimum, especially from 9pm to 7am. Our dogs are friendly but we will keep them contained if you prefer.

Highly recommend to anyone considering. Both Ramya & Lateef were extremely fast at responding to any questions or concerns we had throughout the stay. Very clean and cozy home and provided us with more than we needed to feel welcomed. They even went out of their way to pick us up at the train station when it was raining. Their house is a quick 2 blocks from the train station that’ll bring you directly into Grand Central which is convenient.

This is a very nice place, which we found well-outfitted, down to umbrellas which came in handy when we went to Manhattan without. The beds were very comfortable, and we had everything we needed.

The place was clean and very nice. Ramya and her husband was very friendly. The place was very clean, each room was spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is kind of small with a microwave and a small refrigerator. It would have been nice if there was a small stove and a kitchen sink. The parking space provided was very helpful considering it is known that parking in New York is very difficult. We enjoyed our staying and consider this place again in our future visit.

Ramya and her family were absolutely amazing from start to finish. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and we are so thankful. You really won't find a better deal in NY. The house is only a 5 minute walk to the train station that drops you off right in the heart of Manhattan. The upstairs is so spacious, comfy, cute and most importantly... clean! We were able to leave all of our luggages in one bedroom and sleep and watch TV in the other. The bathroom was also great. All in all an absolutely wonderful time. We truly wish every single Airbnb experience could be like this.

We really enjoyed staying at Rayma & Lateef's place. It was very spacious, comfortable and well-supplied, and they were very considerate hosts. This third floor flat is a short walk from the Metro North train station, making for a quick efficient trip into NYC.

Rayma's place was a wonderful space for our family on a trip to NYC and to see relatives in Westchester. It was an easy walk to the train to get to Manhattan, and also a quick drive to other parts of Westchester. The bedrooms were quite spacious, and whole space was beautiful and full of character. The entire space does not have central air, but the window units in the bedrooms kept us comfortable during a New York heatwave. Rayma was accommodating with the changes in our travel plans, and flexible with our arrival. She made the whole family feel welcome. Next time we are in the region, we will definitely look up Rayma again!

Ramya's husband Lateef welcomed us and was the most courteous host. He carried our bags up and down the stairs and even moved my car for me. He walked us to the train station (4 minute walk away) to show us the best way. I was so pleased that our third floor bedrooms had excellent A/Cs and fans and were very nice and cool upon our arrival on a 90 degree day. Slept great. Glad to have Keurig coffee stocked for the a.m. with fresh pantry and fridge items. Highly recommended!

Ramya User ProfileRamya is a superhost.

So I just started working part time and am on my way to becoming a CPA! We just recently moved to New York from Las Vegas and are excited about the culture and diversity that living near NYC has to offer. We love to travel ourselves and know what we expect when staying somewhere else. I can always promise that you will have a clean room and bathroom and you don't have to feel nervous about traveling with kids as we have them and completely understand. We want people to come and stay with us and say they've had the best experience ever. I'm really big on manners and hospitality and look forward to making your time with us easy and comfortable.

We also just opened our home up in Las Vegas to Airbnb and are so excited to see what hosting is like in a remote capacity!
