You will really appreciate the safety, comfort and convenience of staying in my apartment. I live in a very clean and modern apartment that is quiet and relaxing. This area is very cool and there are lot's of cafés, bars, and shops all around.
SEMI PRIVATE stay, sleep while using my Shoji Screen room divider.
The most spectacular view of Manhattan!!!! You need to see it.
Also I've decided to rent to ladies only.
This is a great spot for the independent traveller that is out exploring the city during the day, I work from home so appreciate privacy by 9:30 am at the latest! I did change around the furniture a little so the pic of the living room is a little different.
***There is a big shoji screen for your privacy while you sleep****
Since I work from home it's understood that I need privacy for work during normal business hours. Therefore I appreciate my guests to be out sight seeing by no later then 9:30am and to return after 6pm. But I am always here to answer any questions if you need anything while you are exploring. If you need tips or what to see while visiting, I can help with that too.
Hot water kettle for tea and fridge for storing snacks.

Other Things to Note
You're stay here also helps me with funding for my design brand. It's a benefit to both of us, I provide a clean and safe place for an affordable price, and your stay here helps me pay for all the materials I need to buy! Pretty cool?!
Please do not wear shoes inside the apartment, take them off as soon as you enter.
Smoking isn't allowed on Balcony.
I recycle, so any plastic bottles, paper, metal can be rinsed and recycled.
I also re-use shopping bags.
Everyday when you leave the apartment, just fold up the sheets etc and put on one corner of couch, and fold back shoji screen. I'll show you how.
Please don't hesitate to ask for tips on bars, restaurants etc...!
Christine was very friendly and welcoming. Her home is cosy and warm through out the freezing winter. The view is spectacular and the location of her apartment is very convenient to shops and public transport.
Christin is a fantastic host.
I had problems with the flight and received me without hesitation at 4.30 am.
Christin is a very interesting person, reserved and nice at the same time.
We had time to talk about different things and it was absolutely pleasant.
She will never be pushy with you, indeed will be able to give you great advice on how to get around town, such as places to attend excellent breakfasts, lunches and enjoy the evening.
The apartment is small but well organized, warm and cozy with a fantastic view on Nyc skyline.
In the house there is also a cat.. Zeek, he is absolutely confidential and you will not notice almost of his presence.
The apartment is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Manattan, from which you can easily reach the most interesting and fun tourist areas to visit during your stay.
The neighborhood is safe and very nice to visit.
For the night out, don't worry, just below the house of Christine there are many cool nightclubs, pubs and local .
Finally, absolutely positive experience, I highly recommend Christine and her apartment, I would like to take this space to thank once again Christine and.... enjoy Nyc.... it's amazing!!!!
Christine was an amazing hostess. She made me feel right at home. If you're looking for a place to make you feel part of this city, this is definitely the place to be. She not only provides a place where to sleep but also takes interest in you and gives you advices of great restaurants and sites to visit. Her apartment was very clean, the sofa is very comfortable, and your privacy is respected. Her cat is adorable and very smart. Because of her awesome advices and what places to visit, the housing schedule is not a problem since you spend most of the time visiting said sides. If I were ever to go back I will definitely stay here again. I made a new friend!
Christine is awesome as usual.She is a great host and very accomodating. Her place is very clean and the couch is very comfortable. This is the second time I've stayed with her. I would highly recommend staying at her place. Plus the view is breathtaking.
Ideal spot to enjoy New York
No unplleasant surprise on arrival, the flat is as described
Christine , thank you again for your warm welcome and generous hospitality
I really enjoyed my stay at Christines apartment! She had many good recommendations for me, e. g. great places to eat or museums. Because I was in New York by myself it was the best idea staying at her place. I felt very safe and I didn't need to worry about my luggage during the day at all. We had lovely chats in the mornings and evenings. Christine made me feel confortable and was always helpful. The apartment was very clean and the view from her balcony is just amazing! Besides, East village is a safe, central and beautiful area in Manhattan.
I absolutely recommend her place as long as you don't want to hang around in the apartment during the day a lot which doesn't work. But that would be a pitty in that amazing city anyway. Christine is a very interesting person and it is absolutely easy to get along with her.
Christine was such a great host and an awesome person. As a former NYer she is a breathe of fresh air and her place is perfect. Clean apt, great spot and you feel like you are staying at a friend's apt. Thank you for everything!

I LOVE this city and so happy that you will get to see it! I truly enjoy being an airbnb host because I know how hard NYC can be to travel to. It's sad that there aren't enough options for people to stay on the cheap, so I'm happy to offer my place to make it a little easier. I travel all over the world and know how nice it is to feel comfortable and safe where you sleep, I'm lucky to provide that! I'm a designer, runner, and avid cook. I've lived here 16 years, but grew up a few miles away (could not wait to live here to attend college!)
