Description

The Space

*Currently I am waiting for a reservation from a potential guest who are independent, responsible, mature and know NYC well and who can check in just after (less than 5days) previous reservation.

Only FEMALE guest.

This ex-living room is a curtain-divided space. There is a hallway behind a closet & curtains, which works as a divider. Please check details in all photos. Please don't jump into a booking request, instead find "CONTACT HOST" button, after you read all house rules and make sure that you accept them without a failure.

Basically I prefer to have long term guests who can stay for more than 2months.

+++ 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(URL HIDDEN)
2) HOUSE RULES & CANCEL POLICY PAGES
3) CHECK IN/OUT TIME
4) THINGS TO NOTE section
5) ALL PHOTOS ( this is a semi private room)

and then 6) Please fill your profile page at first with lots of information about yourself and your photos. Ideally complete verification in advance too.

You don't provide a room without knowing who she is, even if a room is not booked, right?
Thanks!

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.
Please do not get confused.
(As a reference, I will keep the previous photos in the photo pages of Airbnb, too. )

NOTE*
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.

*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 with enough length of self introduction, and complete at least three verification including offline ID, it would be much better than empty profile page( no verification). If you were a host, you wouldn't want to accept such a person, right?

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(URL HIDDEN)
***
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. If you ask it, it will just waste our time because I already say no here.

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.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


It is Sunny just renovated, clean apartment.
This is your Private room (ex-Living room) at Sunnyside.
(This is NOT KEY ENTRY room.)

This is one of the spacious room in my 3 listings, compare to the other two private rooms, the differences are DIVIDED BY CURTAINS. ( Please check photos well before you make inquiry.)
This space has 3 walls including one windowed and 1 curtain as divider.


This private living room has a nice oak wood REAL BED of Crate & Barrel,wide 60inch closet, chair, desk, table lamp.

It is spacious for this price.

Kitchen and bath is new, too.

Laundromat is just 40sec away from my building. Their machines are new and better than others. (They provides soap at free.)

Sunnyside station is just 15min away from Grand Central station in Manhattan.

Your room is located in just 5-6 min walk from Sunnyside-Bliss 46th St Station of #7 SUBWAY, very convenient location.

In this area, you can find many variety of restaurants such as Thai, Japanese, American Grill, Argentina, Peruvian, Romanian, Dominican and Middle Eastern etc. Further more, there is a Cinema near by Subway station.


Apartment was renovated recently. You can stay at this refreshed apartment. Each room has full-size or twin size bed, they are totally new.(2011).

Rooms are sunny, spacious for one person, and clean.
You can see sky and green tree from your window.

Since this room will be new to do air bandb, so as a kind of opening promotion, I would like to offer you at very reasonable price. Please make yourself at home and enjoy your stay in NY.

Only FEMALE gusts are welcomed. Sorry guys, i would like to provide female people with safe and reasonably priced space.

Preferred stay more than 1 month,(required length of stay might vary depending on season)

No-smoker only.

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.

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-approve 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.
It includes,
"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!

FAQ
++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.

******** I have other rooms in same apartment, too***********

My other rooms were also newly renovated and clean, please check them out.
These are keyed entry, private, AC attached rooms!

Please check my other listing pages too.

Thanks!

The Neighborhood
Your room is located in just 6-7 min walk area from "46th St-Bliss St Station" of #7 SUBWAY.
Sunnyside is convenient to access midtown.
(I have accepted many guests who do internship at United Nations in midtown.)
This is well balanced residential area.
In this area, you can find many variety of restaurants such as Thai, Turkish, Japanese, American, Argentina, Mexican, Peruvian, Roumanian, Chinese and Middle Eastern etc.
It is convenient to live, too. In this neighborhood, many types of stores are available, like drugstores, 24hr-open grocery stores, Deli, banks, hair salon, Nail salons, bakery, Starbucks, mobile phone stores and 99cents store.
________
NOTE* NO viewing is provided before your reservation. If you ask my address before booking, it will just waste our time because I already say "I can't" here.
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 and for three rooms I receive more than 100 inquires per year. I will not take time to meet that person in advance either, as an experienced host, I can tell that person to some extent thorough communication here.
Instead, you can check this neighborhood by walking around from station during daytime.
I appreciate your understanding. It enables me to offer this reasonable price.


Getting around
*NOTE:
Dear my future guest, please check your commute by yourself by the internet.
I already wrote about my nearest station name and distance (6-7min walk) from station.
Feeling here is safe or not is very subjective issue, although I see you want me to say “ It is very safe.”
I can walk from station at 10pm. I say walking after midnight is silly. If I said “It is safe”, you might get careless, which I don't like. Please always be responsible for your safety and if you don't feel comfortable to walk from station late at night, please do not hesitate to take a cab. It costs just $10-15 from midtown and $5-8 from Sunnyside station. It is worth for your safety.

Other Things to Note
NOTE for optional fee:
In addition to total rent,there are two types of optional fee.
I would like to know your preference about it, when you send an inquiry, please tell me.
1. regular cleaning fee
2. special check in /check out fee ( early check in or later check out)
#1. Regular cleaning fee
$20/ two weeks
There is regular cleaning fee $20 for each two weeks.
I do cleaning of guests' rooms, such as vacuuming floor, wash bedding, and making beds as well as common areas.
However it is optional, up to each guest.
If you can promise me to vacuum your room by yourself and wash your bedding at least one time per two weeks, that cleaning fee is waved because your cooperation saves my time and effort too.
(ex. your second weekend and fourth weekend, especially for the first time, even if it is not exact 14th day from your check in, please do it on the second weekend.)
For vacuuming, ideally it would be better to be done every week, since you will eat meals at your room.
* Check out cleaning fee $35 is not included in this regular cleaning.
For example if a guest stays for whole month of October,it will be $40 ( two times) but if she can do this regular cleaning by herself, these additional cleaning fee will be waived.
Most of guests do it herself, however, of course, if you prefer me to do that cleaning, it will be fine and it costs $20 per two weeks.
Will you do it by yourself or prefer me to do it?
#2. Special check in /out fee
-Early check in( before 6pm),
-Midnight check in(arrive here after 10pm, airport after 8pm)
-Late check out (after 10AM, Including a case of leaving luggage after 10am check out)
$20 for each
These are for a person who prefers to do check in before 6pm or check out after 10am due to her flight schedule.
I am not a housewife who stay at 24hours at home.
For check in, I might need to come back early from Manhattan.
For check out, I might need to rush into laundry for another guest who arrive on a same day of your check out.
Since I have three guests at one time, I need cooperation of my guests.
I just would like to accept this special check in/out from only a guest who needs even she pays extra fee for it.
On the other hand, please be noted that I might not be able to accept these special options if my schedule doesn't work or if it is too last minutes.
Even you prefer to check in regular time like 6pm, please be noted there is a possibility that I might need to ask you to check in a bit later due to my schedule.
Especially for a late check out, please pay it and make sure if my schedule works or not, as soon as you figure out that you need to check out late.
If it is really last minute request, it won't accept it.
( at least 2 days in advance not previous day of your check out.)
Alternative choice:
To save your expense, you can use my nearest Starbucks, you can spend time there until your check in time so that you can avoid that special check in/out fee.
You have a seat and Free wifi is available there.
It is just in front of the nearest station and 7 min walk from station.
Please tell me if you need to special check in or not when you send inquiry.

The Neighborhood

I uploaded photos in this neighborhood.
The apt is located in just 5-6 min walk from "46th St-Bliss St Station" of #7 SUBWAY.
It is convenient to access midtown. I have accepted many interns at United Nations in midtown. They say it is good location for their commute.
This is well diversified residential area.
The new laundry is in a same block, very close to apartment, just 40sec away.

# SAFETY

Perception of safety is subjective, depending on where you come from. I don't like ladies to walk street in the midnight. According to the New York City crime map, Sunnyside, Woodside areas are safer than Brooklyn though. (However data is just data. Here is New York, where ever you goes in Manhattan, Queens or Brooklyn I request you are careful enough of your safety and belongings.)

I prefer a smart person who can tell when she should spend a money for a cab and can plan ahead to come back before mid night.

NOTE*: You can check this neighborhood by walking around from station during daytime (not my apt).

However, NO VIEWING is provided before your reservation. If you ask it, it will just waste our time and might be a deal breaker.

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, 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 your original plan(ex 1 month instead of 3 months) 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 cannot update you about each reservation/inquiry status. I am not full time hosts, have three rooms and receive more than 200 inquires per year.

If my over 90 reviews with 4.5-5.0stars are not enough for your, Airbnb system might not fit you.

YOUR COOPERATION enables me to offer this reasonable price. Thanks!

House Rules

House Rules
Dear my potential guests, This is the most important part.
Please read all house rules and make sure if they works for you or not, before you send your first inquiry to me, because it will save your time in the end.

I would like to clarify my expectation, which are just common sense things for me and my previous guests.

And then in your first inquiry, please let me know if you have read all and can follow these rules as a responsible guest or not. Please understand that if you are disrespectful for rules, you will be kicked out.

You might be surprised at many rules. I hope my potential guests find these things are normal for her.

On the other hand, because of these house rules, my guests are only nice, well mannered, responsible, and considerable ladies/girls. You can share this apartment with these nice people. Is it really great, isn't it?
As many of my 5-star reviews say, these rules really helps happy sharing for all.

It looks very long to see from a smart-phone. Please access my pages from your laptop. Sorry. Since it is very important, I cannot make it too compact because your appropriate expectation is important for your happy stay.

If you feel they are too many, please follow your instinct and find another host. It would be better for both of us.

# This place is only for a female guest.

# I hope guests to be...
CLEAN(seriously), neat and tidy, considerable for others' quietness, friendly to others, Non-smoker and responsible for following house rules and be able to communicate in English.

# CHECK COMMUTE BY YOURSELF

Please check location and commute by yourself in the internet. When you type "Sunnyside, New York", in a map, my nearest station (46th st-Bliss st station) will be the starting point.(+7min walk to my apt).
Feeling close or far is totally subjective, depending on you. I can't answer it.

# COME BACK TO an APT BEFORE 12:00

This is the most important house rule.
Please do not try to negotiate after you book. Whatever your age is, I do ask my guests to come back to my apt before midnight (for safety and noise etc.) I don't want you to bring any concern/trouble at all to my apartment. If you bring it, it will bother other guest's stay and my life too.

Especially weekday, other guests might need to go to work or school.
Subway might change schedule in the midnight, and finding a cab might take time more than you think. Please plan ahead when you go out and have to come back late at night.
Thank you for your understanding!

If you are a person who would like to come back “often" after midnight (“often" more than two times per month, never later than 1am. Not taking cab is out of question.), I seriously ask that person will find another place soon. Especially long term guests, please promise to keep this rules until end of your stay.
( "Since this is my last week" cannot be an excuse for coming back midnight every day. What about book another place for your last week, if you would like to go crazy?)

# "CLEAN" means:

- Please never put your bags or coat on your bed.
- Please do not keep your foods (even they are not opened) in your room. They will attract roaches.
- Please never eat foods or drink anything on the bed.
- Please take off your shoes at the entrance and wear slippers
- Please do not walk around with bare foot, which will make bedding get very dirty
- Please do not keep your shoes in your room, please put all shoes at the shoe rack at the entrance.
- Please pick up your hair after shower.
- Please wipe counter and stove top with a kitchen cloth and make sure it is clean as it was.
- Please vacuum the floor in your room at least once per two weeks.
- Please do not use strong perfume in my apt, never spray it in a bathroom, hopefully not in a red room which doesn't have a wall to hallway. I don't like it at all.

# NOTE: NO SHOES INSIDE OF THIS APT

You might not be used to, however, at the entrance, please take off your shoes.
- Please wear slipper all time.
You can use my extra washable rubber slippers for guests which were washed every after check out. Otherwise, bring your own slippers.
(You cannot use shoes for outside. please avoid slippers with hard sole, which causes noise.)
- Please do not walk around with bare foot or socks. Comforter and sheets will get very dirty.

# FOR QUIETNESS:
- Please do not take a shower in a midnight, after 12:30 am.
- Please do not cook after midnight.
- Please close a door of your room, entrance and bathroom quietly. (Red room doesn't have wall)
- Please be considerable for noise (when you enjoy movie, music or phone calling).
- Please do not make phone calling/(website hidden) in the midnight (after 1am(in a green/blue room, after 12am in a red room, which is in front of my room.) except for an urgent case.

# FOR PRIVACY

- Unfortunately you cannot bring any visitor/ friend/ family inside of building.
(Viewing by family/family is not accepted. This is not a public space, but my own private place.)
- Please do not use my address ( not for a social security card, resume, bank or visa etc.).
(Exception: For an international guest, you can use it only once when you fill the form on the airplane.)

- For receiving packages, the UPS store in Sunnyside, in front of the station is convenient. They will receive you package just at $3. No need to register. No worry about missing delivery and no need to open our door to unknown person. (I explained at a section of “Location". I will explain details after you arrive.)

# FOR SAFETY:

- No candle and other flammable things will be allowed in your room.
- Please be responsible for your belongings.
- Please remain in the kitchen while you are cooking, even though it takes time or hours. Please bring laptop or smart-phone there if necessary.
- Please make sure that you turn off hair iron, air conditioner or a heater without fail before you go out (even just for 20 min walk) for safety and energy saving. (Only for a radiator in your room, you do not need to close a knob.)
- When you damage something in my apt, please let me know it as soon as possible.

# NON SMOKER IS PREFERRED

For smoking, I don't want to say NO, NO again and again, so I really prefer non-smoker as a guest. Smoking in this building is strictly prohibited. I definitely request that my guest will not smoke even in front of the building (outstanding among neighbors) and not smoke on the rooftop (It is prohibited to access.)

# BE ON TIME ON YOUR CHECK OUT DAY (9-10AM)

Check out time is at 10am or before. Please get ready on time.
Whenever your flight is, basically I cannot allow you to leave your luggage, without an optional fee. Please do not try to ask it in a last minutes. It might be OK only when you paid late checkout fee in advance and my schedule is okay.

(Late check out option costs$20, if available. You will see details in House Manual section of reservation page)

# BRING YOUR LAPTOP, SMART-PHONE or TABLET

- Please bring your laptop (smart-phone or iPad) with you, regardless length of your stay.
- Please research by yourself in the internet at first. There were a few guests who did not bring their own laptop and asked me to research many things. It was their choice but irresponsibly they complains for these inconvenience, caused directly or indirectly by bringing no laptop.
I do not accept the person who do not bring laptop (smart-phone), as a guest.

# BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR RESERVATION

Please be responsible for following cancel policy.
Even though you do not use a room one night or week for a reason or by an accident, once you blocks my reservation calendar, you have to take responsibility for rent of your reservation. Your excuse would not be accepted by my landlord.

# PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT YOUR CHOICES

for special check in and regular cleaning (details are below), when you send your first inquiry.
--
Thank you for taking time of yours to read my house rules and thank you for your understanding!
I hope they are normal things for you.
I am looking forward to meeting you.

******************
Other Things to Note

NOTE for optional fee:

In addition to total rent, there are two types of optional fee.
For a precise quotation, I would like to know your preference about it, when you send your first inquiry, could you please tell me about followings. Do you need or not?

1. Regular cleaning fee
2. Special check in /check out fee (early check in or later check out)

#1. Regular cleaning fee ($20/ two weeks)

I do cleaning of guests' rooms, such as vacuuming floor, wash bedding, and making beds as well as cleaning common areas. However it is optional, up to each guest.
You can avoid this fee, if you can promise me to vacuum your room by yourself and wash your bedding at least one time per two weeks, that cleaning fee is waived because your cooperation saves my time and effort too.
(Especially for the first time, even if it is not exact 14th day from your check in, please do it on the second weekend. If you have a plan in the weekend, please do it before that weekend.)

For vacuuming, ideally it would be better to be done every week, since you will eat meals at your room.

* Check out cleaning fee $35 is different from this regular cleaning.

Ex) 5 weeks stay >> two times regular cleaning($20*2=40) and one time check out cleaning($35)
If she can do the regular cleaning by herself, $40 is waived. It costs only ($35).

Will you do it by yourself or prefer me to do it? Please tell me.

#2. Special check in /check out fee ($20 for each)

These are options for a person who prefers to do check in before 6pm or check out after 10am due to her flight schedule. To save your money, you can kill time at café or airport, too. It will depend on my schedule.

Check in time

Morning: $40 (Super early check in)
*Please book from the previous night, since I cannot accept a guest from a previous night.)
2pm- 6pm : $20 (Special early check in)
6pm-10pm : none (Regular check in)
10pm-12pm : $20 (Special midnight check in)
* You will arrive here after 10pm, with arrival at JFK airport after 8pm due to custom and waiting line for taxi. We have to consider flight delay too.

Check out time
6am- 8am : $20 (Special early check out)
8am-10am : none (Regular check out)
After 10am : $20 (Special late check in, including a case of leaving only luggage after 10am.)
*It depends on my schedule and the next reservation. You might be able to stay a bit later, like 2pm.

After 4 pm : $40 (Super late check out. Please book until that night, since I cannot accept a guest from this night.)

Since I have three guests at one time, I need cooperation of my guests.
I am not a housewife who stay at 24hours at home.
For check in, I might need to come back early from Manhattan.
For check out, I might need to rush into a laundry for another guest who arrive on a same day of your check out.

I would like to accept this special options for check in/out from only a guest who needs even though she pays extra fee for it.

On the other hand, please be noted that I might not be able to accept these special options if my schedule doesn't work or if it is too last minutes. (At least 2 days in advance, not previous day of your check out.)

Even you prefer to check in regular time like 6pm, please be noted there is a possibility that I might need to ask you to check in a bit later due to my schedule. (We can use starbucks in Sunnyside as our waiting lounge. I might be able to pick you up on the way from Manhattan to help you carry your luggage.)

Especially for a late check out, please pay it as soon as you figure out that you need to check out late.
If it is really last minute request, it won't accept it. (It should be asked at least 2 days in advance not previous day check out.)

Alternative choice:

To save your money, you can use my nearest Starbucks, you can spend time there with free wifi and air conditioner until your check in time/leaving time for airport.
It is just in front of the nearest station and 7 min walk from station.
