About this listing

My husband and I enjoy sharing our 3 bedroom apt with roommates all year round. We have two rooms available with full sized beds. The rooms are big and bright with big windows overlooking a garden in the back. Manhattan is 20 min away!

The space

This apt in the city makes for a great way to stay in NYC on a budget. Our 3 bedroom apartment has 2 bedrooms for rent. Both with a view of the neighboring backyard. The rooms have full size beds a built in closet and extra storage space. The neighborhood is very nice, 2 min walk to the park and a beautiful view of Manhattan (hence the name Grandview).

Guest access

There are lots of great value shops, diners and local eateries around the corner. The L subway train goes into Manhattan every 5 min and takes you there in 15 min. The park with a view of the city is at the end of the street, 2 min walk. Great for going for a run and walking your dog. Yes, small dogs are welcome at a 10$ extra charge per night. We love pets and have our own tiny, lovable Chihuahua Leia to cuddle with. She loves meeting new people and she is friendly with other dogs.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I will be around on a daily basis as we will live in the third bedroom. We love to cook, play board games, go to shows and movies. We have a projector and we enjoy having movie nights in the living room. We will gladly look after your small dog if you bring it along. The apartment is big enough for everyone to have their privacy.

Other things to note

Gemma's such a kind host. She is constantly making the apartment look good by cleaning. She respected my privacy and never entered my room. She made banana bread AND carrot cake while I was there, and shared with me. She is so friendly and kind, anyone would be lucky to stay with her.
