** Live where New Yorkers lives. If you don't want to stay in a typical touristic and artificially overproduced neighborhood, you are looking at the right place. Welcome to Inwood.
** 25 minutes away from midtown.
** Very well located for students: few minutes away from Columbia University, Fordham University and City College. Also, a perfect option for doctors in rotation or residents at the New York Presbyterian Hospital (168th Street), and many other hospitals.

The space

Very bright, spacious, well communicated entire two bedroom apartment in Manhattan.

NOTE 1: I am renting my whole apartment. I am very flexible with dates, and I can adjust it to the visitor needs (I will book my flight ticket after get your confirmation).
The only condition is, and is the reason why I am making a very good price, it should be a CAT-LOVER.
The person who stay at home doesn't only have to take care of my three cats (just feed and clean the litter box). Also have to give some attention and love to them.

NOTE 2: The photos on this profile are when I just moved here, few years ago. You can see how it looks the apartment today in the "First Video" below.

I am looking to rent the whole apartment, ideal for a single person or a couple (only one set of keys): 3 rooms (two bedrooms). First floor.

Yes, I posted two small videos online. Are a kind of tours around my house. Because Airbnb doesn't allow videos from You Tube, here the steps:
First Video: You tube + "FOR CAT-LOVERS APARTMENT"
Second Video: You tube + videos + "VIDEO HOUSE"

All utilities and Internet (Wi-Fi) are included.

Inwood is, we could say, a Little Dominican Republic. So, if you are a lover of quiet and bucolic environments you may be better off staying at some other neighborhood. This is very urban, like most places in Manhattan.
If you are very sensitive to noise, please keep in mind that the street where the apartment is located has a somehow busy nightlife on the weekends. And the apartment is at the first floor.

Guest access

25 minutes away from midtown: Two blocks away from the A (express) and 1 trains, at the 207th St. Station, in Inwood, very vibrant, safe and clean neighborhood in Manhattan; and multiple buses.

Interaction with guests

I won't stay at the apartment, but always available and reachable by phone or What's app.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in time is flexible
Check out by 1PM

Cat-Lovers only.
Parties are not allowed.
No smoking.
Pets are allowed. But, since I do have cats already, only other felines are welcome ;-)
Electricity it is included with a maximum use of $60 monthly, which is a regular fee having a regular life. A summer tip: Because the Air Conditioner consumes an enormous quantity of energy, should be used discreetly. Any exceeding of that limit amount will be charged from the deposit as soon as the monthly bill arrives at home. Or, in another way: You can use the AC without any restrictions, as long as you want, but in a monthly bill over $60 you have to pay the difference.
In case of lost keys, replacement cost $60 (landlord charges).
Others: If any item at home get broken or lost, I expect to be notified. If you decide to move some furniture or mirrors from the rooms, or anything from the kitchen, you can, but you should put it back at the original position. You can't leave your used dishes or garbage. Neither because you are paying for a housekeeper it means you can leave the house dirty. If anything, it gonna be charged from your deposit.

We stayed a little more than a month in Felipe's apartment. Felipe is a wonderful host for many reasons. First, he really cares about how you feel in his apartment. Then, he was very helpful when we contacted him. He is very nice and he even became a friend for us. His apartment is great, very clean, and you feel at home so quickly. There is everything you can need. The location is great for students, couple, or even for tourists. Close to the A and 1 trains, midtown is only 20 minutes far from the apartment. The neighborhood can be a little noisy at night during the weekend but it is safe and nice. The plus of the apartment is the cats. Pantera, Bambu and Rojo are wonderful. They are great cats. They bring a good mood to the apartment and we were glad to take care of them. I would definitely recommend Felipe, the cats and his apartment. If I have to book an airbnb in NY again, it will be Felipe's apartment. It was a great experience and we are very thankfull to Felipe.

This is a very spacious, open apartment with a lot of charm and character. I stayed here six weeks with my cat, Sasha, and it really became like home and was tough to leave! Felipe was an amazing host! Very friendly and accommodating. On arrival, he provided me with a list of restaurants, bars, and cool spots to check out in the neighborhood which was very helpful. And he was always available by phone/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to answer any questions. The cats are incredibly sweet and chill! They were no trouble at all with my Sasha, or for me to look after, and provided me with some great company, cuddles, and love. The neighborhood is very friendly and safe, and the 1 and A trains are each just a block away so getting around was no problem. It can get a little noisy at night - for the first 2/3 nights I used earplugs but after that didn't need them. I highly recommend this apt for any cat lover, with or without a cat of their own!

Awesome space. It had a very arty, color block feel to it. It's very spacious and open. Even with my luggage sprawled everywhere I was still able to move around with a lot of elbow room. Felipe was charming and interesting. He gave good directions around the neighborhood and showed where all the hotspots were, and about the city as well. The deli market next door was pretty cheap and incredibly convenient to be so close. The subway, both A and 1 train are around either corner of the block, and I was in the middle of Manhattan in no time. It's incredible being in a Dominican neighborhood, it's so vibrant and warm. I always feel safe because people are so friendly. And there are so many things to do around: Inwood Park, the biggest wild park in New York. The Cloister Museum Gardens, a branch of the Met. A view of the Hudson river from the hilltop. And a wide choice of cheap little restaurants serving traditional Latino American food, and also more sophisticated restaurants as well. There's a lot in the neighborhood. It was a cool experience. The building is pretty quiet. I only ran into neighbors a few times but they just gave a smile and went on their way. I feel my travel in another house wouldn't be the same. I am so happy to have chosen this place! It was a fun little place.

Great neighborhood, but can get loud - bring some earplugs. It is super easy to get down into the city with the 1 and A trains a block away, and I felt very safe coming home late as there were police standing on the corner during the night. Make sure you like cats. Felipe was an amazing host, and extremely accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

I am a Writer. I travel a lot and, sometimes, when i am away, I leave the entire apartment to someone, if the person take care of my cats.
You must be a cat-lover, because I have three cats, two black and one ginger.
I speak English, Spanish and French. I am learning Portuguese.
There are plenty of great books in my house that you can borrow when you stay here.
I love going to quiet places near the house, such as Inwood park and the lake, The Cloisters Museum (one of the best in town) to read my books.
I am also a foodie :) You will find, great spices at home that you can use for your cooking.
