Your private room is located in our family's lovely 3-bedroom condo, a welcoming space for you to call home while enjoying all that New York's five boroughs have to offer. We are artists and students of culture and will be happy to help with recommendations during your stay.

We also have another bedroom listing with more space:

The space
To yourself, you'll have a cozy room furnished with a comfortable and adjustable Ikea bed that pulls out from a twin to become a double. Your room also has a small refrigerator/freezer. yay! Clean sheets, blankets, pillows, and shampoo/conditioner are provided, as well as fresh towels and some closet space. (There are no additional charges for these items.)
(Note: When set-up as a double, the bed will take up most of the space in the room, though you may push it back into a twin for more space during the day.)

We provide you with your own set of house keys, including for your private room. We don't impose a curfew so you're welcome to come and go as you like -- make yourself at home!

There is one bathroom in the unit with a sink, toilet, and shower/tub to be used by all. While communication about timing for the use of the bathroom for morning and evening schedules is always beneficial, we have never had any issues sharing this space with guests.

You are also welcome to share the other common spaces as well -- living room with Apple TV and DVD set-up, kitchen, and dining table. Our home is strictly non-smoking, but the building's outdoor courtyard is only one flight downstairs with benches available.

OUR FAMILY

We are a married couple with children -- a lawyer-filmmaker and licensed tour guide who likes to cook, an actress-seamstress and Broadway dresser who likes to bake, and two children who like to play in our building's courtyard when the weather is nice.

Due to our freelance lifestyles and the children's schedules, the house begins to wake with activity a little before 630am on weekdays, but is usually quiet again just after 7am as our family heads out for the morning.

On weekends, we like to hope the children will "sleep in" until 8am, and will usually keep them playing in their room until 9am or so, or make our way out of the house for the day to enjoy the city for ourselves!

Guest access
Our home includes:
- high-speed Wi-Fi
- large washer & dryer
- bathtub/shower
- fully-equipped kitchen
- living & dining room
- Apple TV with Hulu, Netflix, & HBO
- library of books and vast movie & music collection
- hardwood floors throughout

Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE: when the Ikea day bed is pulled out into a double there is a weight limit of 225lbs per person.
ADDITIONALLY:
We have another private bedroom in our home also listed on Airbnb. We verify all our guests through the site and guests will have keys to lock their bedroom doors. We find most guests rarely meet as everyone is out seeing the city!

During your stay
We have been hosting on Airbnb since 2011 and have really enjoyed sharing our home with visitors from other cities and countries Since we don't travel as much now that we have children we love that people from all over bring the flavors of their culture into our home when they come to stay with us. ;)

We are friendly and would be happy to share our love of New York with you during your stay. With our backgrounds as a licensed NYC tour guide and a member of multiple theatrical and performance unions, as well as our own general passions and interests, we are very knowledgeable about theatre, film, jazz, art and science museums, public parks, historical and cultural landmarks and other ins-and-outs about the city, and we would be glad to give you tips on (for example) standby tickets for The Book of Mormon, the best options for Monday night jazz, or how to get discounted entry to the Met and other museums.

If our schedules allow and guests have an interest, we welcome conversation over a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of wine to help with any suggestions or planning for your stay. Of course, we are around to answer any questions and to help make our guests' stay as enjoyable as possible!
