Our home is on the top floor of an Art Deco building just 1.5 blocks from an amazing park along the water and a leisurely 5-minute walk to the A train, the 1 train, and an express bus. You'll have access to a spacious apartment overflowing with art and light, including the kitchen (coffee/espresso included!) and a living room with two comfy couches and lots of chairs (bean-bag, rocking, bouncy ball). The bedroom is flooded with light mornings and afternoons. All backgrounds are welcome!
This apartment is somehow simultaneously spacious and cozy! The bedroom can easily accommodate 4, plus more folks are welcome to use the couches or a large air mattress in the living room (just message us about that separately because the living room is a shared space). The main bed is a large futon-mattress with a memory foam cover, and the two single beds are Simmons Beauty Sleep Foldaway Guest Beds. We have lots of wonderful little secret gems hidden inside, like an espresso machine that you're free to use, a rather large art collection (long, pensive looks are free, too), and a sizeable collection of books for the fellow nerds of the world. Under the coffee table we have some games, like Connect 4 and Settler of Catan, and you're more than welcome to challenge us! We're also two blocks away from a Farmer's Market every Saturday, as well as one of the largest and best parks in all of Manhattan (where you can wander among trees so tall and lush you won't believe you're still on the island). The light in the bedroom is really something to behold, as well!
Toegang voor gasten
You'll have access to the main bedroom that you see in the photos. You can keep your clothes in the two large drawers across from the bed, and there's a walk-in closet with another larger dresser if you're staying longer or just want to spread out. You'll also have full access to the kitchen, and as I've mentioned, you're free to make coffee and use the Nespresso machine. The living room is also a lovely space that I'd love for you to take advantage of! The art, the books, the desk - please enjoy it all!

I'll definitely be available to answer your questions and help you throughout your stay, even if I'm not staying there. As a high school teacher and college professor, I probably won't be here very often during the day. If I happen to be there, too, then I'll just be a small room away, and you should feel free to knock on my door or send me a text message morning, noon, and night.
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Checking in and out is flexible! It depends a lot on our work schedule and the people who have the room reserved before and after you. So, just be in touch and we'll figure it out. Also, we are flexible in terms of how many people you have in your group. Just note that it costs a bit extra per person after two people, so let us know in advance how many people are sleeping over. Bottom line: let's talk. Also, there's a TV here, but since we're not avid watchers, we only use it to augment our movie-watching experience by plugging our computers into it. There is basic antenna-based cable for people who like to have the TV on in the background while they're chilling at home. We welcome ALL people from all backgrounds. We really mean that!We also have a washer/dryer in the basement. It's rather inexpensive; you just need to reserve your time to use it and use a special card. There are also same-day laundry services nearby that are a great deal.
We usually take our shoes off, but don't feel obligated. Basically, our home is your home, so the main rule is to feel comfortable - stretch your legs and take it all in!
We would also love for you to not be shy about questions! Please let us know if there's anything we can do to make your stay here more relaxing and fun!
