Private small second-floor studio apartment with a full size bed. Perfect for 1 person, can fit max 2 humans. Superb location near 24/7 bus to Manhattan. Kitchen, bathroom, reliable air conditioner in summer and heat in winter. Second floor, so only 10 steps to get to apartment! Quiet & friendly 'hood, easy to walk. A visitor permit for street parking required, 48 hour notice needed to arrange. Get to Time Square in 10 min by 24/7 bus. Old building, so don't expect the Ritz!

The space

Small studio apartment for maximum two guests sharing one bed. There is no option for more than 2 guests. The studio is in a small building above a laundromat, and the common entrance is a bit ratty looking. We sweep and wash the hallway every week but it's still old!

Guest access

Access to entire apartment, not shared with anyone.
We can make arrangements for luggage storage before or after check-in/check-out.

Interaction with guests

I live off site but I'm not too far away, and I'm always available to help.

We have a comprehensive house manual in the apartment so you'll have all of the info that you need.

Other things to note

1) Set of keys that for your stay

2) It's a quiet family neighborhood where tons of people are walking around at night, in the morning, all day. We don't have street people or panhandlers, but we do have lots of young families with strollers and puppies. The streets are well lit and I regularly walk home through the neighborhood even late at night.

3) Best way to get into the city is to follow the detailed info that is in the house manual, but just as an overview, the jitney buses go every 5 minutes (no joke) all day and all night, 24/7, 365 days a year. It's $3 a trip cash, no tickets.

4) We can lend you a visitor parking permit which is required for street parking, but we don't have any reserved parking. We need advance notice to arrange the visitor permit.

Exactly as described but words in an advert cannot convey the feeling you get from the apartment. It is small but had everything you would need, and the space has been utilised so well! Communication was brilliant, especially when I had a very blonde moment and couldn't actually get in the door! Thank you so much for having us and if we ever return to NYC this is the place we will look for first!

This was a great place to stay! The location was close to transportation and the host even leaves a binder with directions and spots you should see. Besides the usual city sounds it's a quiet and comfortable place to stay.

We enjoyed our time in this quaint space so close to NYC. Maria was nearby to help out if needed and provide some great local info on how to get around town! We felt very safe in the neighbourhood, the space was very well kept, and getting to and from NYC was very easy and straight forward! Looking forward to coming back :)

Maria was awesome! Quick responses and assisted with any questions we had. We arrived late Friday evening. Maria had parking set up for us, however, with last minute changes for it, she waited outside the unit until we arrived to ensure we were able to park without any issues. I would highly recommend!

The place was small but perfect for two people. It was really easy to get to the city from here.

Nice little Apartment close to NYC - really liked the booklet with relevant information and recommendations. Ac and fridge are quite noisy though :-)

We had a mixed stay but given how positive the other reviews are, the issues we had may have been unique. On the one hand, the location is really excellent. Getting into NYC is very easy and there are some great places for food in the immediate area. We also got very comprehensive information about check-in and check-out. On the other hand, that information was slightly but crucially incorrect (we were given a letter for the apartment but the apartments are numbered), the apartment was fairly but not overly clean (the bathroom and floor desiring a better cleaning), and there was so little toilet paper that we had to buy more the morning after we arrived (and we arrived late - around 8pm). These were minor issues that we could deal with but they still detracted a bit from the overall experience. Still, for location, I would recommend this as an alternative to places in Manhattan and, as I said, these may have been things that other guests didn't encounter.
