Your private bedroom in our apartment will be your home away from home! With easy subway access, you're just 25 minutes from Times Square and the surrounding areas. Come visit and see all NYC has to offer without breaking the bank on accommodations!
Your private room will be comfortable and relaxing, furnished with everything you need for a great stay. It includes a full size (double) bed, two bed-side tables, a large dresser, full size mirror, and large closet. We've collected a large assortment of NYC guidebooks and other publications so if you're looking for unique, "only in New York" activities, we've got you covered! Our apartment is ideal because of its close proximity to the subway as well as sights to see off the "beaten path." Our large apartment will provide plenty of room for up to 2 people to stretch out, relax, and enjoy your time in the city!
Look out our living room window and you'll see Sylvan Terrace, a historic cobblestone block that once served as the carriageway to the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest house and George Washington's headquarters during much of the Revolutionary War. This historic district is a true rarity in the city and was once voted the "quaintest block in New York." The mansion itself is a wonderful museum that is accessible for only $5 and sits on a large plot of land with beautiful gardens, lawns, and quiet spaces.
As for us, we are a fun couple who love meeting new people. We are passionate about New York, going on adventures, and living life to the fullest. We are both actor/singer/dancers and we love recommending our favorite Broadway shows to people looking for a night out at the theatre. Joey is also a pianist, a server at a great cabaret theatre in midtown, and a trainer at the Apple Store. Chaundra is a professional makeup artist who loves making people look and feel beautiful. We are easy-going, considerate, and occasionally a bit silly.
We also have three wonderful pets that live here as well. Rusty the dog as well as our two cats named Pickles and Hamilton will greet you when you arrive to our home. They are fun-loving and cuddly but we will make sure you only interact with them as much as you're comfortable with.
As our guests, you have access to anything you need in the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living room. You'll get clean linens and basic amenities should you need them. In addition, password-protected Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the apartment.
In the living room we have a flatscreen TV with Blu Ray, Apple TV, and HBO which you're welcome to use. We also have a nice selection of movies on hand as well as a large selection of exercise DVDs and equipment if you need to squeeze in a workout!
Our kitchen is large and includes a full-size refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, french-press, blender and a vast array of kitchen supplies and utensils. It also boasts a table that is set up for 2 but which will expand to seat up to 4.
The bathroom is large and has plenty of space for toiletries. We have a shower/tub, with ample hot water and excellent water pressure. Towels and washcloths are provided.
Overall, we want to take the worry out of your trip so anything we can provide, we will do our best to do so!
Our schedule varies quite a bit, but rest assured that when we are at home, we love to get to know our guests! We encourage you to use the apartment like a roommate might. Sit and watch some Netflix with us and crack open a bottle of wine if you like. That being said, we know you're not coming to New York to see us, so please don't feel obligated to spend your valuable vacation time on us.
We have three wonderful pets that live here as well. Rusty the dog and the two cats Pickles and Hamilton will greet you when you arrive to our home. They are fun-loving and cuddly but we will make sure you only interact with them as much as you're comfortable with.
Check in is after 3 pm (depending on our availability) and check out is by 11 am. If you need to leave luggage that is a possibility, just let us know and we will try our very best to accommodate you!
Common courtesy is our most important rule. We expect everyone, (including ourselves), to be mutually respectful of the common space. This includes cleaning up our own messes, washing our own dishes, and keeping the living room, kitchen, and bathroom tidy and comfortable.
We expect our animals to be treated humanely, safely, and lovingly. We request that they not be fed human food, no matter how cute they are or how long Rusty gives you his heart-melting "puppy dog" eyes.
No smoking inside the apartment. Tobacco, or anything else...
We love to meet people, but inviting guests of guests into our home is something we'd rather not do. We're sure your friends are awesome, but please respect our home and meet them for dinner and drinks down the street, not in the apartment.
In general, our apartment is perfect for:
- People who like meeting new people.
- People who love cute, adorable animals.
- Clean, respectful, and responsible adults.
- People who want to feel a sense of home in NYC.
We probably aren't a great fit if:
- You intend to bring lots of people in and out of the apartment.
- You don't like dogs and cats.
- You are reluctant to share common spaces with others and help to keep them tidy.
- You like to steal things, aka our stuff...
We are in New York City and living the dream!! We are people looking to meet as many fun and interesting folks as we can! Our lives are directly shaped by our love for each other and the friendships we make with those around us! We love Broadway, music, movies, and the great outdoors!
