Welcome to our lovely home! The apartment is recently renovated and has lots of sunlight. It is on the top floor of a townhouse: A two sets of stairs walkup from the street (no elevator).
The apartment has its own: entrance, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, all for your use only.
Guests can take the 6 train 1 minute away at 110 st station. 2-3 trains are at Central Park (110 St station) (~6-7 mins walk). The apartment is 5 mins walk from Central Park North (at 110 St and 5th Ave).
This apartment would be good for families, solo travellers, group of friends, you name it. The place is not childproof, but welcomes children and babies alike!
Long-term rental is possible; do ask if you need a pad for longer than a vacation.
The apartment has its own entrance. You have your own keys and could access the apartment at any time of day. You could check-in by yourself if you arrive late or at an inconvenient hour. Otherwise, we are around and would love to welcome you and show you the apartment for a few minutes (if you’d prefer).
Interaction with guests
We would like to welcome you to the building and are available to answer questions and provide as much help as we can, before or during your stay, but we are also pleased to give you the privacy if you’d prefer minimum interaction with hosts.
Other things to note (or the so-called “home truths”)
There is NO ELEVATOR in the building; it is a standard townhouse walk-up. To access the apartment, you need to climb approx. 6 steps from the street level, get to a hallway, climb another approx. 15 steps from the hallway, and then the final 15 steps (2 flights of stairs from the entrance of the building). That may seem like a lot when you have heavy luggage; please consider that when you book.
Kitchen, sink, stove, microwave and dishwasher are available if you want to cook your own food and save some money. Dishes and utensils are provided. There are a couple of groceries 2 mins from the apartment. Very convenient!
There is a washer and dryer in the apartment for clothes washing. We will take care of sheets, duvet cover, towels, etc. so there is no need to wash those.
We do not have a TV. Our guests have used their own tablets and phones to access the internet in the past.
Wi-fi is available for guests’ use (free of charge).
The apartment faces the front of a side street, and receives the normal street noise for New York City. It is in the Spanish-Harlem area, so summer month’s weekend music parties can last till 10-11pm, and you could still hear some of the noise even if you close the window.
Safety features: We have carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguisher in the apartment, and sprinklers in the building. There is also a fire escape at the back of the apartment building.
- quiet hours: 11pm-6am; please leave shoes at the door. Many thanks.
