Space on a Sofa, Close to NYC!

Apartment - Shared room · East Palisade Avenue, Englewood, NJ 07631, United States

The Space

Hi! Please see my other listing "Priv Room in Englewood, NJ--Say Hi to NY!" I had so much demand on AirBNB for my spare bedroom that I decided to open up my living room to budget-conscious travelers looking for a clean, cozy, comfortable stay close to Manhattan but without the expense!

And to be accurate--you have much more than a sofa! You will have use of the entire living room, which is outfitted with a twin air mattress, a 42" flat screen TV with Roku and local channels, and 50mps high-speed internet. You would share the condo with me and one other tenant, plus the cat (=^-^=). I sleep in one bedroom, the other tenant sleeps in the other bedroom, and the cat pretty much sleeps wherever he wants--so you have to be OK with that.

The dimensions of the LR are quite spacious--13' x 9 '. A mirror-paneled wardrobe is at your convenience for clothing storage, and heavy light-blocking curtains at each door provide privacy.

There are LOTS of transit options nearby. I am about 15 minutes away from the George Washington Bridge on the NJ Transit bus lines (either 186 or 178). There is also express bus service available to the Lincoln Tunnel on the 166 bus line during rush hours (local other times). I am also conveniently located to most major NYC Metro area highways (including I95 and Route 4), and Newark Liberty International Airport is about one-half hour away. (I am happy to pick you up from the airport if you book in advance!)

I am also blocks away from the heart of Englewood, which boasts many unique shops and boutiques, as well as world class restaurants featuring mouth-watering cuisines from around the world. So if you don't feel like going into NYC you can always spend the day enjoying the many wonderful offerings of this quaint Bergen County town.

Who should consider renting this space? Someone who is a fairly heavy sleeper and won't mind hearing occasional noise in the kitchen. Someone who likes cats. Someone who is coming to the area and needs a clean, comfortable place to stay for a short while. Vegetarian/vegan and/or cupcake lover a plus : ) ! (I tend to cook/bake more than I could ever eat so I am always looking to share...)

Hope to see you soon!

I work for a major nonprofit agency in Brooklyn, NY
Quiet, mature, professional female who is happy to provide cozy and inexpensive lodging to people traveling to or doing business in the NYC metro area. I am clean and happy and enjoy cooking, arts, culture, poetry, and overall educational/ philosophical pursuits. I have done a good deal of traveling in the past, but...that was before the current economic turmoil so my passport hasn't gotten a lot of action as of late : ( . However, I am hoping to also make some new friends by using this service and so hopefully my passport will have wings again before too long! Life is too short for BS! One day at a time...and to thine own self be true.
