Interaction with Guests
Please take note that I'm renting out a private room in a 2-bedroom apartment. So you'll be sharing the living room, bathroom, kitchen and patio with me. I'm away most of the time for work in the city but there may be times that we'll have breakfast together.
Gates Avenue station is half a block away from the apartment and it takes 15 minutes to get to lower Manhattan.
It takes about an hour from JFK to get to my place by subway and about 30 mins by taxi.
If you want to take the subway, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Center (get off at Sutphin Blvd) then transfer to the J train to Gates Ave.
Please don't forget to turn off all the lights and the AC/heater unit when you leave.
Please put dirty dishes, glasses and utensils in the dishwasher.
She is so sweet with smile. I had a problem with key but neighbor helped a lot.
No lift to go up 3.5 floors and it's so great with modern interior. She must be well organized and keep the house clean. However, the bed sheet was a bit smelly but I would be back next time
Everything was exactly as depicted -- pristinely clean, conveniently located, and Charisse the perfect host. This is an excellent place to stay -- comfortable bed even for the fussiest sleeper -- modern decor and amenities, even a roof top spot to read. Perfect. Thank-you!
The apartment was really nice and the location made it very easy for us to get around the city. Charisse was very welcoming and we felt very comfortable throughout our stay.
Haben eine detaillierte E-mail mit allen wichtigen Daten von Charisse im Vorfeld bekommen,wie Code fürs Haus, wo sich der Schlüssel befindet wenn sie nicht da sein sollte und das WLAN Passwort.
Am Tag der Ankunft hat Charisse den Schlüsselstandort uns per E-Mail mitgeteilt,da sie ihn verändert hat-wir hatten jedoch kein WLAN und konnten die E-mail somit nicht öffnen und standen vor verschlossener Türe-der Nachbar hat Charisse dann per Whatsapp angeschrieben und wir kamen nach kurzer Zeit zurück und konnten ohne weitere Probleme dann in die Wohnung!
Das Zimmer ist sehr klein, im Spiegel im Bad kann man sich nur mit einem Schemel betrachten-er hängt so weit oben.
Charisse ist sehr nett und großzügig!
Wir hatten aus Versehen eine Nacht zu viel gebucht-diese Nacht konnte dann unsere Tochter und ihre Freundin bei Charisse verbringen!
Charisse was a wonderful host–easygoing, fun to hang out with, accommodating, and thoughtful. She makes you feel right at home in her home. The place is super spotless and full of sunlight, with a huge awesome balcony! Also (bonus) a comfortable bed and a great shower :) It's also so close to Gates Station, so coming and going was super easy.
Charisse was warm and welcoming. She struck the perfect balance between spending time with us and leaving us on our own to recharge. We felt right at home. The space is clean, comfortable and convenient. There is so much light in the apartment, especially from the sky light in the bedroom and on the roof top patio. It was a great respite from the bustle of the city. I would highly recommend staying here.
