Don't sleep on the Bronx! Sleep in! 20mins from the city, 2 blocks from the train, on in a huge house atop a hill - we call Summit. Enjoy a quiet stay in a warm, cozy, sunny room. The house is inhabited by aged 20s-30s artists and 2 furry friends.

The house has a rustic feel - we just moved in in January 2015, and are still placing art on the walls, cloth to hang in spaces, considering the wall-paper. The room is currently furnished, with a newly purchased full-sized mattress and bed frame, pillows, mirror, fresh linens, towels, dresser, desk, desk chair, hangers on rods, baskets, (but no closet), electric heater, ceiling fan, and wicker armchair for reading. I am a librarian, so will switch out books from time to time for you to enjoy and take with you on the subway!
Guests have access to a large and inviting home-space with amenities like stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, a very hot shower - careful not to put it on too high, internet, french-press coffee maker and linens.
Four women and a newborn baby live in the house, and will run in and out to and from work. Someone may have a guest, but folks generally stay in their rooms. One house-mate stays home to care for the house and the animals. Someone is always available to answer questions if needed.
Otherwise, your solitude, and ours, is sacred.
The room has only one full-sized bed. Small children may fit with two adults, but only two adults are allowed in the room.
We have two pets, so folks should be okay with a small cat and a small dog. The cat you may never see (who knows where she hides), but Tyson will say hello when you arrive.
You will share your bathroom shower with two other roommates.
The kitchen is shared with the entire house.
Laundry is not available on-site for use of airbnb guests. We will wash linens every couple weeks for long term stays. Otherwise, we recommend a drop-off laundry service in the area. They will return laundry usually within 24 hours.
We are a queer woman of color household and are open to folks of all races and genders who embrace values of cheerfulness, privacy, and mutual respect.
No local New Yorkers:
We are excited to meet travelers from out of town. Airbnb guests by cannot be local. If you are currently residing in New York, we will cancel the booking. We apologize for the inconvenience. If your profile says you are local, we will cancel the booking.
No unannounced guests:
We expect no one to come to the house other than the guests who have been arranged prior to sign-up.
Don't break things. Be honest.
Children will have to share the bed with the adults. There is only ONE bed in the room. Each additional body is $15 per night extra.
Smoking is okay, outside.
