Your own key to house leads you to the second-floor suite (bedroom plus bath) that's yours alone. A 15x15 foot bedroom carpeted in Afghan rugs, 19th and 20th c antiques & 100s of books; small hallway with chair & mirror; all tile PRIVATE bath with rainshower & garden view. Room has chaise longue, chair, side tables, luggage rack, clothes rack, twin bed with high quality linens. No guests of guests; no kitchen privileges, no guests under 21. Person making booking must be the person staying.
Your room and bath are the entire 2nd floor of this beautifully restored and decorated 1850s brick townhouse in the West Village. The house has been published in several decor magazines, including photos of this bedroom. The room is 15' by 15'. There's a single bed with luxurious linens and European down comforter, an elegant 19th century chaise longue covered with silk, a working woodburning fireplace, hundreds of books, a 42 inch TV + VCR.. everything you need to unwind after a busy day in the city. Hotel-standard blackout curtains and white noise machine to ensure a good sleep, also a powerful but extremely quiet ceiling fan. All tile bath next door is small but has a rain shower head and window overlooking back gardens. Shampoos, conditioners, bodywash, toothpaste and other toiletries are provided. There is a 3' by 3' antique mirror in the room itself. Also, the bath has a large mirror at a somewhat inconvenient angle; there is another large mirror in the hallway between bathroom and bedroom, a small mirror facing it, and there is a table top magnifying mirror for shaving or makeup. In one corner is a luggage rack and clothing rack with hangers. There is an electric kettle, tea cup and tea bags but no other cooking facilities. There are 3 good reading lamps, one by the bed, one by the chaise longue and one by another side chair. This is an IKEA-free zone! (nothing against 'em, but too many Airbnb rentals have the same ugly couches against the same "exposed brick" walls..)
No one else will enter your room or bathroom. Owner does not entertain guests or use music system while guests are in the house and will be reading or writing if she is there. Owner never uses TV.
Very quiet location (for New York) as Leroy Street has almost no through traffic and there are no bus routes nearby. Owner does not play music or watch TV and rarely makes phone calls.

Interaktion mit Gästen
Host works from home (online work) and is very quiet. Happy to answer questions but not looking for a social experience. The aim is for you to feel you are in your own private enclave.Best for a self-contained guest who values his or her privacy. No curfew, come and go as you like. But no visitors.
