+++ THIS PLACE IS FEMALE ONLY. NO EXCEPTION. +++
GUYS, thank you for your inquiry, but absolutely NO exception. Sorry.
Please let's save time of both you and me.
+++ BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME FOR INQUIRY+++
+++ PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY
1) THIS PAGE (apt and area description)
2) HOUSE RULES & CANCEL POLICY PAGES
3) CHECK IN/OUT TIME
4) AMENITY PAGE
5) ALL PHOTOS ( this is semi private room)
6) CALENDER PAGE ( It is always the (website hidden) need to ask availability but you need to introduce yourself before you jump into booking request.)
and then 7) Please fill your profile page at first with lots of information about yourself and your photos.
You don't provide a room without knowing who she is, even if a room is not booked, right?
NOTE*(since Feb 2012)
Bed was upgraded into the REAL Full-sized bed from the previous queen-sized airbed in the middle of February 2012.
The old reviews in 2011 were about the room with a previous airbed. Now your room has a real bed, please do not get confused.
(As a reference, I will keep the previous photos in the photo pages of Airbnb, too. )
I might be able to accept two people however, I can not always guarantee to accept two, because it depends on season and booking status of other rooms. Your friend needs to read house rules in advance too.
(I cannot accept in June,July and Aug.) I hope you understand it.
The listed monthly price is "FROM" $980, it means that each month/season has different monthly rent, as well as daily rent changes by season.
Please put your check in/out day in calender page, airbnb system calculate "approximate" price for you according to the setting of monthly, weekly or daily price of each month.
*Recently due to a change of airbnb website in Feb 2014, I found the price calculation often shows wrong price (It doesn't reflect customized setting that a host did) After we talked details and then I will check it and adjust it properly with an attached offer.
Please be noted that airbnb website shows sometime average monthly price instead of total price, so please don't misunderstand it.
Minimum stay might vary by season but basically I prefer a long term stay(more than one month).
LADIES, thank you for your interest!
When you contact me, COULD YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF?
If your photo is uploaded in your profile page it would be nice.
After you read ALL of my pages, PLEASE TELL ME whether you understand HOUSE RULES and CANCEL POLICIES and they are OK with you or not.
( if not, before replying your questions, i have to ask these things again. )
PLEASE CHECK PHOTOS of this room at first because this is not a key entry room. It has three walls and one window and then It is divided by CURTAINS and a large closet from hallway.
And tell me if this curtain divided private space is OK with you.
For basic questions about my apartment, I have described as much as detail below, so at first, please find answers in these pages.
For Air BnB system itself, such as payment and deposit process etc, please learn from FAQ pages of Air bnb, by yourself please.
NOTE* NO viewing is provided before your reservation.
Please understand this point. I can not provide a viewing in advance because Airbnb system does not recommend us for security reasons.
As Airbnb says "We encourage all hosts and guests to complete their booking through our website BEFORE meeting in person to best ensure their safety and privacy. To mention just a few of the trust and safety tools we made with you in mind, Airbnb features private messaging, profile verifications, Voice Connect, reviews, and verified photography."
There is no exception whatever the length of your stay is. If you can not make up your mind, you book shorter period than you plan and then you extend if you like it and a room is still available, although I cannot hold a room for you without certain commitment by reservation to avoid an opportunity loss. I am not full time hosts, have three rooms and receive more than 100 inquires per year.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
It enables me to offer this reasonable price.

In case of that you come back everyday in the midnight,
i know there are so many fun in NYC, but this is not your place, some of us goes to school early, i do not want people to disturb others, i hope you can find another easier-going host.
Near Subway Sunnyside 46th St Station Line#7, Queens. This station is Just 13min away from Grand Central station.
*** PRICE and discount opportunities ****
This is a kind of promotional price, it is already best price, for limited time only.
Those who asks discount for less than3 weeks stay, please find another one.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to answer your discount request.
I hope you can find a better place to stay and enjoy your travel in NY.
And to those who stay long term, i already put weekly and monthly price, although it depends on the season, when you put long term in your inquiry, Air BnB system automatically calculate and apply these discount rate.
Before jump to ask me for discount, please recognize how much you have already got discount and please take it into your consideration too.
If possible, please tell me what can you do for it, instead of getting discount.
However on the other hand, I hope you understand that by accepting only female guests, my market size is almost a half size of original one. I sacrifice potential opportunities already in order to provide more comfortable environment for you.
These are opportunities that you might be applied
- Your schedule and your needs are very clear and ready to make up your mind, and you can make decision quickly, (12-24 hours) after i give pre-apporove or special offer to you.
(Note: Even i give you special offer, if won't be effective forever. If you are not ready to make a decision and need too much time to consider, i might accept another booking, so after you asked other question and ready to choose, then ask me discount opportunity.
- You can write a review within 3days after you leave here.(Of course please write what ever you want frankly, that will help my potential guest too.)
- Such as no need help to bring your luggage by yourself when you arrive and walk up apartment.
- You can do very early check out such as 9 am
- You can wait somewhere and can do late check-in such as after 6pm
- Your schedule perfectly fit the vacancy of the room, that means you can come here in same day that the previous guest will check-out in the morning.
- You can promise me never to cancel your booking.
- You can book not in the last minutes, 2-3 weeks in advance.
- You have been to NY many times before and you do not need to be cared so much as First-time NY visitor.
- Especially for international guest from outside of the U.S., If you can promise me that you have the U.S. phone (including US prepaid phone) while you stay my place, that would be fine. When we need, we can contact each other easily without making international call to your cell.
Let's find a win-win solution for both of us.
Otherwise, in order to give you the feeling of " got discount a lot", i need to eliminate monthly and weekly price and tell you discount rate each by each after i get inquiry, but in essence, there is totally no difference. Nonsense process. Let's save our time!
****** BATHROOM will be shared with others ****
Several times, I had the question whether this room has private bathroom or not,
NO way! In such a price, It is impossible to have room with a private, non- shared bath room.
***** Does B&B style work with you?
Don't you have expectation too much?*******
Please remember, Here is NY. This is BnB, not Hotel! : )
I wish i could help you whenever you need, however, since I am working at daytime, It is impossible to be in apartment 24h/7 days for you.
If you are not independent type and you expect some kind of hotel like service, it might be better to stay at real-hotel so that you can ask concierge at anytime and have private bath in stead of staying at reasonable price.
Not only check the price, but please make it sure whether such a B and B style works for you or not!
I will do what i can do for you, however, too much expectation tend to result in disappointment, if you stay is sad, it makes me sad too. : )
So, in advance, I am telling you frankly.
***************PLEASE BRING YOUR PC*****************
As i said, I expect my guest to be independent.
"PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PC with YOU"
however short your stay will be.
Recently i noticed.There were a few guests who did not bring their own PC and
nearly all guest without PC tend to have some troubles.
It was their choice but unfortunately they forget and they complains for these inconvenience which was caused directly or indirectly by bringing no PC.
Unfortunately I won't take my time because of others' laziness. My time is limited.
I do not accept the person who do not bring PC, as a guest.
(As exception, if you have smart phone which you can access internet, that is fine, even when you do not bring PC.)
Please make sure you have PC in your luggage.
Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you for your reading, if you have any question, please ask me!
++about security deposit.++
If your stay is longer than 3 weeks, i might ask you another security deposit when you arrive(of course it is refundable and tell you in advance, don't worry ) .
But basically i will ask Air to handle it.
This is the way how Air handle it.
How does Airbnb handle security deposits?
For safety purposes Airbnb handles security deposits through the site. Airbnb authorizes the guest's credit card for the security deposit amount 24 hours prior to check-in, however, the card is not actually charged. The security deposit is held until 48 hours after checkout unless Airbnb is notified by the host. If no damages are reported, the hold will automatically be released. If damages are reported then Airbnb will mediate between guest and host to make sure both parties are represented fairly.

The house is fully furnished and you can find here everything you need! Lucy is really really nice and very organized! She is always ready to help and to answer all the questions! The area is safe and there are supermarkets open 24 hours and the laundry is right in front of the building! I strongly recommend this apartment!
Wonderful! Lucy is a great host. I really enjoyed staying at her place with other guests. The apartment is conveniently located close to a train station and grocery stores. She is a busy person yet spared her time to communicate with her guests. Thank you so much for having me at your place. I appreciated your personality!
If you still have doubts about booking at Lucy's place, let me suggest you not to hesitate for a second!
This apartment is one of the reasons why it took me a such a short time to feel like home in a metropolis such NYC.
Lucy is amazing, probably one of the kindest persons I have ever met. She takes care of her guests in so many ways: from helping you to carry huge suitcases, making sure guests are fine, to sharing her food and her stories. It's a pleasure to be here, also the other guests are very nice!
That's why it took me just a few days to decide to extend my stay at her place. :)
The Red room is very big and comfortable. The tent was a minor issue since the apartment is quiet and well organized.
About the location: the neighborhood is safe and cozy, it takes just 15 min with metro (you will have to get just one train!) to get to the city center.
I highly recommend you this place, specially if it's your first time in NYC!
Lucy was helpful and kind, the apartment is clean and comfortable, it is near the subway and easy to get to Manhattan. She's friendly and helps if you have questions. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Thank you Lucy for everything!
Lucy is an incredible and accommodating host. She puts a lot of effort in making sure you have everything you expect or need. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Lucy and I ate dinner together and introduced each other to different recipes we tried out. Sunnyside, Queens has some great places to eat, plenty of grocery stores, subway, and laundry mats nearby. It is an up and coming area and if you have never been you should definitely try out the area. You won't be disappointed. The subway is about 3 or 4 blocks away and is a quick ride to NYC. The area is a mix of young professionals and families. If you have any questions Lucy shares a lot of knowledge about the area, school, and networking. She was incredibly helpful, made my stay very comfortable and memorable. I would absolutely stay with her again should the opportunity present itself.
lucy is a wonderful host! i stayed with her after moving to NYC and hopelessly looking for apts. she gave me great tips and she is so helpful and kind..towards the end of my stay, I got sick and she offered me some plum tea and soup which helped me feel better. the apartment is also very convenient and clean..i loved staying with lucy!!
It was wonderful staying at Lucy's. Lucy is a very generous host and has her apartment set up fabulously for all visitors. I had no problem with check in, check out, the neighbourhood, etc etc! I thanks Lucy for her hospitality and would recommend her apartment to anyone (provided I know they are clean!)
Lucy goes out of her way to assist guests during the course of their stay. She is thoughtful and very kind and although I initially felt overwhelmed in learning Japanese ways and custom, by the end of my stay I had learned so many things I didn't know before..including some delicious cooking tips from Lucy who is an expert in Japanese cuisine. Lucy takes amazing care of her guests and provides a great environment although travelers should know this neighborhood is Woodside and should take precaution accordingly.
For sure, I had amazing time staying in Lucy's aprtment. The host, Lucy is such a nice person, introducing all about decent guidelines such as ground rules, useful travelling tips and things that you might have missed about your safe journey in NY. Moreover, the room is cosy and clean enough, visitors who were staying in the other rooms were so nice so I was able to going out with them and had a good dinner as well. I had so wonderful memories thanks to Lucy and the atmosphere arount Lucy's apt. I would definitely recommed you to stay in this place. Please grab the chance to have fantastic memories in NY. :)
I would highly, HIGHLY recommend staying with Lucy!!! She is a most gracious, most helpful, lovely individual, who has made my 1st time staying in Queens and my 2nd time renting through airbnb, a true delight!! I even extended my stay from 1 week to 3 weeks because the apartment was so clean and comfortable and Lucy was so warm and accommodating. I am in NYC during the week while in school and I return home on the weekends to be with my 1 year old daughter;) Lucy was very understanding of my situation and allowed me to stay with her for a few days during the last few weeks as it was convenient for me. I was home rather late from school most evenings and she was almost always awake to welcome me and invite me to enjoy some of the delicious Japanese food she had made for dinner!!! One morning, I even woke up to fresh miso soup on the stove and on three occasions she sent me off to school with a couple sticky rice balls or another Japanese lunch of some sort that she had prepared, ummm amazing?!?!!! What a treat! I told her that my boyfriend and I love, love, love Japanese food and she composed a detailed email with her favorite Japanese groceries and restaurants as well as other good Asian cuisine around the city:) She even picked up a few items from the Japanese grocery and gave them to me as gifts!!! Aaaand she printed off a bunch of Japanese recipes for me to make at home for my honey;) Lucy really is an exceptional host, clear and upfront about her very simple and reasonable expectations of the shared space, and generally an attentive and generous human being:) Oh and I should talk about the room I stayed in... I stayed in the red room, although it is partitioned by a floor to ceiling curtain and no door, it is very private, sunny, and quiet. Generally, Lucy's apartment has a positive vibe and I slept very well!!!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
