The space

Our apartment is perfectly located on 31st and Lexington Avenue. It's a 2 minute walk to the subway and anything else you might need is not much further. Enjoy a bright, and sunny bedroom in a great location!

Newly renovated, this apartment has a lot of old charm and character with a modern touch!

We have a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, on the 2nd floor of a 3 floor townhouse.

You will have a private bedroom with high ceilings, a full bed & a lot of storage space.

I have everything you need in terms of towels, bed sheets, a clothing iron, hair dryer etc. A few other items in the guest room for you to use are:
•International power adapters
•Body wash
•Nail polish remover
•Cotton balls
•Body lotion

I used to live in this bedroom in this gorgeous apartment but I've had to relocate to Florida for work. My two roommates Oktay and Marshall still live in the 2 other bedrooms. My roommate Oktay lives in the bedroom off from the kitchen and Marshall is next to the guest room. They both work often and are out all day during the day most of the time during the week. That being said, you will have a lot of privacy during your stay. They are out often, but if you have the pleasure of meeting them you will find that they are very friendly and easy going people that would love to answer any questions you might have during your stay.

While it is unfortunate that I can't meet everyone who stays in the apartment I still want to share our home with people and have them experience New York City while staying in a comfortable, awesome location!

Murray Hill is a great location with so many things to do. Our apartment is close to ANYTHING you need.
•There are restaurants within a 30 second walk to our apartment, one being a neighborhood favorite just downstairs.
•The subway is 2 minutes up the street.
•Close to a good nightlife scene
•You can see the Chrysler building up the street
•Walking distance from Grand Central Station, Empire State Building, Bryant Park, Union Square and many more NYC attractions
•There is a parking garage around the corner if needed and after 7pm you can park for free in many of the surrounding streets
•We are walking distance from a movie theater, multiple grocery stores and there is laundry a block away
•The 4,5,6 train is a 2 minute walk up the street from our apartment & we are a 10-15 minute walk away from Grand Central Station, Penn Station/Madison Square Garden, and Union Square!
There is also a bus stop literally at the front door of the apartment :)

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole apartment except for the two other bedrooms. For your convenience, there are single serve Keurig coffee pods laid out on the breakfast table in the living room to make coffee and we also have a Poland Spring water cooler for you to use during your stay!

Interaction with guests

At any time, I am always available to reach and will help you with anything you might need. I have written a guide to answer any questions about the apartment/area for your convenience, which you will find in your room. I've included restaurant suggestions and places you might like to visit that have become my own favorites. I have also laid out a bunch of brochures and tourist information to help you plan activities.

Shelby made sure that it was easy for us to find and enter the flat. The position was good. The facilities in the bedroom were clean and comfortable. The coffee machine was great:)

Shelby was excellent in communication many months before our stay and we arrived knowing exactly where to go and what we needed to do. The apartment itself is clean, tidy and well furnished. The location is excellent if you want to be in the heart of NYC.

We had a great stay! Shelby was quick to respond and assist whenever we had a question. The apartment was clean, location and the location was great for us.

We had a great stay there. The place is bang in the centre of Manhattan. Very close to subway lines and lots of nice cafes and restaurants. We only saw Shelby's housemate twice the whole time (7 nights) we were there. The place is clean and there is an air-con in the room which helps on very hot nights! Bring your earplugs as this place is right on the Lexington Ave so street noise is to be expected. Thanks again, Shelby, for being such a great host and quick to respond to any message. We would definitely go back.

Shelby wasn't in but a friend was there to greet us. Really helpful - explained where all the local food stores, pharmacies etc were and other details which made the stay easier. Very friendly.

Hi there! My experience in NYC was amazing and part of it was due to staying at Shelby's house! She was very good at giving me advice before I arrived, on how to get to the house and how to get to the airports etc. Then once there it was really easy to find the house, it is in a perfect location, really close to everything that is central (e.g. 5th avenue, Empire State Building..). Shelby was not actually in the house, but I knew that beforehand and so Pamela was very kind in taking over. All went very well, the room and house were both very clean, and had all the described features. I would definitely go back!! Thank you very much Shelby and Pamela for helping me in my NY experience!! Hope to see you again :)

I am studying culinary management and love to travel and meet new people. I can't think of another area in NYC I would rather live. Everything is close & convenient with so many fun things to do within walking distance. I hope to share the experiences I have had and keep having in this city with those who come to visit!
