With years of hosting experience, we've designed the space for a special type of guest. We've found our place is...
PERFECT FOR: The lone traveler looking for a nice, affordable place to rest after a long day of exploring the city.
WELL-SUITED FOR: Two active guests who travel light and are looking for a pleasant space to stay, without the hefty hotel price.
The room is a section of our living room separated by a room divider, and thus, semi-private.
Check out our awesome reviews!
Because the draw (for us, also) is the location – close to everything but in a quiet area. Right around the corner from the subway and ~15 min from Times Sq, it's a short walk to Central and Morningside Parks, Columbia U., the Cathedral, and great cafes, bars, and restaurants. Our section of Frederick Douglass Blvd. is known as "Restaurant Row."
This surprisingly spacious space is sectioned off from the living room by a large room divider – while it does indeed feel private, it is not a separate room, per se. That said, you'll find it has all you need to feel at home, including a mini fridge, desk, luggage rack, full length mirror, and a very comfy bed. We've also provided four NYC guidebooks to help you explore the city.
It's important to us that our guests feel at home. With the exception of our own bedroom the apartment is at your disposal, including the bathroom, kitchen, couch and TV. It also includes our three full bookcases with excellent reading material, as befitting of two English teachers. :)
We'd like to think we strike that balance of interaction and respect for privacy, mainly based on what we perceive from you. While we're both friendly, outgoing people, and have in the past even provided mini tours to guests. We also love meeting new people and learning about where they're from. We also love giving recommendations for hidden gems in the area, and, possibly, can provide tours of Columbia University.
However, we're also somewhat typical overworked young Manhattanites, and between work, school, and domestic responsibilities are often not at home. Even when we are, we might generally try to stay to ourselves, keeping the common areas free for your use. We feel this adds to the "come and go as you please" nature of your stay. It also has the effect of making the space provide feel much more private.
We have a small (6 lbs) dog named Huxley. Thankfully he is very quiet and is kept out of the guest space at all times. If you are, however, either allergic or scared of dogs this is probably not the best fit for you. Sorry :(
-Come and go as you please! (any time! In fact, we encourage you to make the most of your evenings--many NYC bars are open until 4am!)
-Quiet hours between 11pm and 8am. (Please speak softly, keep TV volume low, no outside visitors or deliveries)

Huxley: I'm a 6 pound chihuahua/terrier mix! My mom and dad rescued me from death row, after I was a stray in the Bronx! I've come a long way in 2 years and I'm very friendly, especially if you're a dog person!
