We ask that you respect our home as if it was your parents LOL!!!! Please keep all public areas clean or at least as clean as you found it. I leave cleaning supplies in the bathroom and kitchen if there is a mess.

Kitchen is open 6:30am to 10am and 5pm to 9pm for cooking. If you want a glass or something from the guest fridge on off hours that is fine.

Guest fridge and pantry area is labeled by room number.

The Kitchen is labeled so you should be able to find anything you may need easily.

When done with kitchen please wash dishes and put them away or use dishwasher.

Coffee and Tea is provided so please feel free to make it when you would like it. Please by your own milk or cream. I hate to buy it and then no one uses it.

When finished in the bathroom please use antibacterial wipes provided to wipe up after yourself (sink, counter top, mirror) There are also cleaning supplies under the sink. Take a look in the shower and make sure you wipe up any hair left behind. Throw the wipe in the garbage can. This way everyone enters and enjoys a clean bathroom.

Please use the hairdryer provided in the bathroom in your bedroom and not in the bathroom. We want to make sure the bathroom is open to all guests as needed. Please return it to the bathroom drawer so the next guest can use it.

Please put down the toilet seat. If you sprinkle please wipe up :-)

Please leave the door open when not in use.

There is NO laundry service in the house. Please go to Cortelyou and East 16th Street to use the laundry mat. There is a cafe across the street so you can use wifi and relax while waiting.

Please be aware that when you use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) that most people speak very loud and that you could be disturbing the guests in the other rooms.

If you are a long term guest please feel free to wash your sheets and towels at the laundromat. I like to keep your privacy and do not come into your room to clean. You can use the vacuum and any other cleaning supplies.

Wonderfully welcoming and friendly. The room was huge and everything was very clean. Totally accurate description.

Laura is a great host. Attentive but not at all intrusive Her house is spotless and very pleasant to stay in The local area is fantastic and very different from Manhattan with great places to eat within 5 minutes walk ( we could happily live here! )

Very comfortable and clean, a beautiful Victorian house in a lovely neighbourhood near Prospect Park - you wouldn't believe you're so close to the City. Q line is within 5 min, and there are good bars and restaurants in Coutelyou Rd, just on block away. Laura was very friendly and helpful, you couldn't ask for a nicer host

I have never stayed with Airbnb with the host and other guests in the same house and I did not know what to expect. Now that my journey has finished, I can say that it was the best thing to do ever! The room (number 1) is simply gorgeous: comfortable, large, sunny, nicely designed! The bathroom is everything I could have asked for, awesome! Very close to the subway too- a couple of minutes to walk, which is great for those who want to spend the evening in Manhattan. It is obvious for me that Laura knows what a guest's expectations are when travelling. Thus, she is always there when you need her! Really, a warm, beautiful and attentive woman! I am sure that my first experience in New York would not have been as great as it was without Laura and her cozy house. I already know where to stay on my next trip to NYC! A huge thank you, Laura! You make people happy!

We enjoyed out stay in Laura's very friendly and welcoming house. The room was large and very comfortable and we definitely felt like we were "living like locals" rather than being in an impersonal hotel. Also, being in a residential area was a welcome respite from some of the more hectic areas of the city. I'd recommend staying here.

Laura was a good host. Obviously she had plans and was away towards the end of my trip but was clear and easy to get hold of. She was great with advice and welcoming. The room and house was lovely and couldn't fault it. I loved my 3 other house guests and have had lovely conversations and especially the 3 of them making me feel comfortable and welcome. I'm defo recommend staying here :)
