Description

The space

Our fifth floor flat in a gorgeous prewar elevator building boasts high ceilings, gleaming hard wood floors, overflowing sunlight and sweeping views of Central Park.

The spacious private bedroom is sun drenched, with a queen-sized bed and an attached, full private bathroom. It overlooks Central Park and a Gothic mansion from the turn of the century. The peaceful sounds of a lovely fountain sitting in the mansion's front yard greet you every morning.

The corner living room is architecturally significant in that it is located within a circular turret, with views of Central Park to the East, the Gothic mansion to the North, and downtown Manhattan to the South.

You have access to your private bedroom and full, attached private bathroom as well as our newly renovated kitchen and living room.

We provide fresh towels and linens, soaps, shampoos and other toiletries, including a hairdryer. We also have an iron and ironing board and electricity adapters.

In our living room we have a television with cable access and a large DVD collection. Additionally, we have free Wi-Fi throughout the apartment and the TV is hooked up to the internet, enabling you to watch shows or films on our Neflix or Amazon accounts.

Hi there!

My boyfriend Dave and I share a two bed, two bath apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan with our super friendly, super cute pet Chihuahua. We live on Central Park, with park views from every window.

We love traveling and meeting people from all over the US and the world, so we started using Airbnb to share our spare bedroom.
