Beautiful brownstone living with a beautiful yard including quiet private yard. Lots of privacy but the benefit of locals living upstairs and happy to interact and contribute to your experience in NYC.
Absolutely no smoking.
No use or storage of illegal drugs whatsoever.
No houseguests (day or night) - exceptions are possible but must be discussed with hosts.
I am sensitive to scents - so please do not burn incense, scented candles, or use air fresheners. Our house is clean and you should not experience bad odors here. If you wear a strong perfume that causes headaches for me, I may ask you not to wear it during your stay. I have only had to make this request once but it was important that was agreed upon/expected in advance so that there were no awkward or bad feelings.
Do not remove batteries or turn off smoke or carbon monoxide detectors. They ARE sensitve so if you must turn them off while cooking, you must restore the batteries before leaving the kitchen.
Since the house is not child-proofed and has breakable items within arms reach of children, we can only host families with babies who are not yet crawling/walking or well-behaved children over 5 years old.
You are invited to use our kitchen including reasonable usage of our spices, oils, condiments etc. You will be expected to purchase your own groceries and clean up completely after preparing and consuming your meals.
Do not leave lights or air conditioners on when you are not home.
NOTES RE: MONTHLY SUBLETS - Monthly sublets will be charged a cleaning fee 2x per month and a security deposit of 30% total rental fee.
