Veralisa was the sweetest! Everything was clean, organized and comfortable. I had to make a last minute reservation, and I couldn't have lucked out more with Veralisa's place.

VeraLisa's place was great! Especially for an extended stay like mine (three months for an internship in Manhattan). Vera was so accommodating and I was there so long that I began to feel like I actually lived here! Manhattanites tend to be skeptical and suspicious of the Bronx, but this area was very safe. It was very convenient to the subway (1 train), plus there's a great pizza place just down the street (Acapella)! This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was a great first one. And the Starbucks coffee Vera had every morning was the cherry on top of a great experience. :)

Amazing experience!! Veralisa and Leo were great hosts. They are both lovely people and the listing was very accurate! Private room in a secure building. The apartment is kept very clean! I am a med student and was doing a rotation at Montefiore Children's Hospital, a 20 min walk away. This place is perfect for med students! Truly a quiet study space. Van Cortlandt Park is beautiful, great place to run! Overall I highly recommend staying here!

I really enjoyed my stay at Veralisa's place ! She gave me a good orientation upon arrival and recommended me several places to eat. She and Leo were always friendly, easily approachable, and helpful. Starbucks coffee Veralisa made was super great !! I was doing a rotation at the Montefiore which was 5 min bus + 10 min walking. I would def stay here again if I come to Bronx.

I am a very artistic person; and a jack of all trades. I love art, music, philosophy, history, and science. I enjoy practicing tai chi whenever possible for it's amazing health benefits.

I love the Caribbean and wish to return soon. My favorite thing is fresh fried fish and plantains served with an ice cold beer on the most serene beach of Boca Chica, Dominican Republic...
Ahhhh, the good life :)

I am warm and hospitable, yet very operational, & hardworking. When I'm not working, I spend most of my energy cooking, cleaning, and doing organizing projects; as well as resting & recuperating.

I'm a native New Yorker, and know first hand that New York City is an exciting and tough city, and my goal is to create serenity and a safe haven in the midst of the chaos... :)
