You’ll love my place because it is roomy and has plenty of space to keep your belongings. The beds are comfy, there is lots of light in all the rooms. The kitchen is well stocked and nicely upgraded. The house is close to NYC and the bus to Port Authority is practically right outside the door. My place is good for couples, business travelers, families, and large groups.
Please read the entire description before booking and feel free to contact me with any questons.

>>> PARKING: There is a FREE private parking space in back of the house to keep one car, while you are here. You do not have to look for a spot because it is on the property!

Interaktion mit Gästen
I am very happy to interact with guests, as you request, and love sharing information about my neighborhood and Manhattan. Please let me know any questions you have or particular interests you have for your visit, and I'll try to assist you as best I can.
I am in the apartment downstairs, so I am available most days. If I or my husband are not on the premises then I can be reached by text.
Weitere wichtige Infos
Children are very welcome! Be aware that anyone using a bed is considered a guest and should be included in the number of guests. The cabinets are not child proof, but there are no chemicals within reach of children. There are no window guards on the windows. There is not a crib at this time so you would need to have a safe sleeping setup for a baby.
NO SMOKING inside the house!
Please be sure to communicate an approximate time of arrival as requested in my welcome message.
Please be considerate with noise especially between 10:00 pm thru 9 am. This is usually a pretty quiet neighborhood especially for an urban area, and I live in the apartment downstairs. Parties need to be held off the premises.
PLEASE be considerate of the neighbors when you are outside. Do not talk loud or slam car doors especially at night. Also, please do NOT pull into the neighbors property to back out of the driveway.
The driveway is shared with the house next door and needs to stay clear at all times.
Please be clean with food and trash, and leave the space in the condition you found it. You don't need to deal with beds, or putting out trash, but please see that food and debris are reasonably cleared, and recyclables (bottles, cartons, jars) are separated from regular trash.
Please use the range hood fan above the stove when cooking. The stove is a professional stove and without the fan may set off the fire alarm. Be sure to keep the burners at a manageable temperature (not too high), especially if you are not used to high heat burners.
Close the hood lights when not in use. They burn hot.
PLEASE USE CAUTION WITH THE COUNTERTOPS. The granite edges will chip if smacked with a heavy object like a pot or pan. It is treated with protectant but is still porous, so please use the many cutting boards provided, and do not put any oil or oil vessel directly on the stone.
No smoking inside the apartment.
No illegal drugs or activities on the premises.
No Bit Torrent or any other illegal downloading!!
Please be green and shut off lights and air conditioners when leaving for the day. Do not leave windows open when it's cold out. Also be aware of water conservation.
Please be sure to check-out by 11:00am, so we have time get the space set up and cleaned for the next guest. If you are arriving before check-in or leaving after check-out, please see my manual on luggage storage facilities in NYC. If you are parking a car here please arrange with me if you need to park early or later than check-in/out.
The property has surveillance cameras around the outside perimeters of the house.
ALL visitors must be disclosed in advance.
I am a long time New Yorker and know NYC city very well. I have lived and worked in midtown and worked downtown, including in the new 1 World Trade building. I'm happy to assist with any information on getting around New York as well as the hood here in NJ. I love to dance mambo, swing, jazz, hustle and Zumba. I gravitate to the creative, love to meet new people and learn new things each day.
