Studio apartment in a beautiful old brownstone house built in 1909 with a mix Asian and French interior decor, it is a true taste of NYC; only a couple of blocks to Columbia. Great Neighborhood and a fabulous block, lots of new stores and restaurants. Hardwood floors, private bathroom. laundry room in Building.
Your own private studio. We set this up to accommodate friends and family as well as entertaining. This is a perfect getaway for two, or a business traveler that wants a more personal experience than a hotel. There is a refrigerator and microwave for convenience as this is our entertainment area for the house, there is a stove in this room but we do not have pots and pans and do not want any cooking here. (too many trendy eateries around here for that). You can use it to heat water but other than that no cooking.
For the bed, I know you see a pull out sofa bed but wait until you try it. It is a Queen Plus size memory foam mattress, and the couch is unbelievably comfortable to top it off. We supply clean sheets and towels plus two bed pillows. Your private bathroom contains a Shower, no tub. We own and occupy the house so you will know people in the neighborhood already. This is part of our house but you will have your privacy and come come and go as you like. It's located in a great old brownstone that was built in 1909. we spent a lot of time keeping the original charm in the building while upgrading to the current standards. If you have not experienced today's Harlem you are missing out on something special. Mostly everyone in the neighborhood is friendly and moved here for the revitalization. There is a small store on the corner for drinks, sandwiches and quick items you may need. Two blocks to a great food market called the "Best Yet Market". They are a full service grocery store with prepared foods as well. Also, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Wine stores, dry cleaners, Local bakeries, and tons of great restaurants all in the immediate area and all less than four blocks walk.
Sorry about the cleaning fee but we have the house cleaned by a professional service after every guest to make sure everything is up to par. Every guest always has a thoroughly cleaned room; This includes sheets, linens, bathroom etc. So you know you are coming to a clean and ready place. The fee is one time, not per night. We have a four night minimum to help synch the cleaning persons timing. If you are planning on an extended stay longer than a week just ask and we will work out something so you have clean sheets and towels. If you are planning on and extended stay there is laundry in the basement of the house, just ask us.
We will give you keys so you can come and go as you please, we both work full time and are there in the evenings and on weekends.
We only interact if there is a reason to or you need something. Once we give you the key you can come and go on your schedule. You are welcome to ask in person or call us if you have any questions or you need tips on the city, etc.
We are an international couple and love to travel. We have traveled all over the world and brought back multicultural memories back to our home, you will definitely taste the multicultural experience during your staying. We have friends and family come to visit and stay with us, so we set up this room to welcome our guests and give them their privacy (and ours). We joined Airbnb was because we love the culture of it, we also like to share our passion for travel and the multicultural experience with our guests. There is a notebook on the desk for you to write down your thoughts of your stay, please leave a note for us and future guests. Hope to see you soon and look forward to having you back to visit us again.

Generally what you would expect in any house.
Be respectful of noise and what time it is.
Keep the outside doors locked at all times
Do not block the hallways
Turn off appliances, AC, Lights etc when not in use.
No Cooking; Even though there may be a stove it is only for heating water, there are no pots and pans by design for this reason. There is a tea kettle and a microwave for reheating items.
Thanks you for your cooperation

My wife and I own and occupy the building. It is a beautiful brownstone built in 1909. We purchased it and restored/renovated it while turning it into a four unit apartment building. We occupy one of the units. I am an entrepreneur and real estate investor. Well traveled and a student of the world, I love to meet new people especially from foreign countries. The unit I have listed on airbnb is our "friends and family" area, we call it the garden studio. You will have use of this unit just as you would any hotel room or private apartment. I look forward to see you in New York.
