A quiet home in the middle of the NYC's energy. Sunny & spacious, clean & comfortable. Plus a doorman, elevator & rooftop! Walking distance to so many tourist hotspots & local finds. Close to the subway and some of the best cafes, bars & restaurants.
Ideal for a couple's trip to NYC!
My home is clean & modern, sun-drenched & private. A true 1 bedroom in a beautiful, newly-built doorman building in my favorite neighborhood, Gramercy Park.
The apartment is on the 7th floor of a modern, elevator, doorman building. So you never have to lug your bags up flights of stairs. It's ridiculously quiet since there are only 5 apartments on the floor. There's also a gorgeous rooftop with views of the Empire State Building!
The windows face south which lets in tons of light all day long. Other buildings are set back, giving you plenty of privacy & open views.
The queen bed is super comfortable with a pillow-top mattress. Seriously, you'll feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. Blackout shades block the morning light to let you sleep in as much as you want.
The living room has a couch that can sleep an extra person in a pinch. A 46" television, DVD player & Apple TV with Netflix & HBO access. Sorry, I don't have cable!
The spacious kitchen has a breakfast bar with 3 counter stools. Stainless steel appliances include a fridge, stove, oven, microwave & dishwasher.
I'm not much of a cook, but whatever I do have is there for you. And I don't drink coffee so there's no machine. :(
A washer & dryer in the apartment! Trust me, a rare find in a NYC apartment. But it's there for you, in a closet next to the kitchen.
I love meeting people. Part of the reason why I travel so much. The other is for work. I can try to be available when you check in if I'm not in another country. If I'm not around, I have 3 amazing doormen who can give you access. They're on duty from 8 am to 11 pm.
If you have any questions before, during or after, I'm definitely available via email or text. If I'm traveling out of the country & you need something in a pinch, you can talk to my neighbor across the hall. She's a fun, fantastic woman with a generous heart.
Help me out:
My mother gave me a plant with the order to keep it alive. I'm trying not fail at this. If you could water the plant next to the kitchen sink & the one next to the window, I would greatly appreciate it. Mainly cause it will help me avoid a "knowing look" from my mother.
NO SMOKERS please.
To be kind to the environment, please only run the A/C only when you're in the room.
For cleanliness, please do not wear shoes in the apartment. As much as I love the city, I would like to avoid dragging NYC filth through my home.
My pots & pans are non-stick, which means they're not dishwasher friendly & need to be hand washed.
I love my home & want to share it with you. I hope you love it too by treating it with respect.
I'm a humanitarian photographer, working with non-profits & NGOs all over the world. I love to experience new things, meet people & have a good laugh. I traveled around Portugal using airbnb & fell in love with every place I visited because the hosts made the experience so warm & welcoming.
