Interaction with Guests
The best way to reach me throughout your stay is through the Airbnb website. Airbnb sends a text, email and a message on their app when you send a message.
If I am not able to meet you at the door, there is a keybox on the door.
The neighborhood is a lively, fun neighborhood. Many restaurants, bars, nightlife, shopping, as well as playgrounds, parks, free entertainment, jazz. It has everything.
Lenox avenue has great places like Corner Social, Red Rooster, Chez Lucienne. All of which are open late, with outside cafes, so I feel safe walking alone at night.
Harlem is one of the friendliest neighborhoods I lived in, in NYC.
No burning incense. It is very hard to get the smell out.
About the Host, Ferris
Hi I'm a stay at home to 3 awesome kids. My husband and I recently bought and renovated our home. We've lived in NYC for close to 20 years, but just moved to Harlem a few months ago. We LOVE the neighborhood. Great neighbors. Feel super safe even out late at night.
I love to eat out, dance and entertain.
We don't smoke and don't have any pets.
Pretty laid back, so if you have questions or need anything feel free to ask.
When we travel we stay in apartments as oppose to hotels so we know what it's like to be a guest in an apartment. We've had some funny, cool experiences in other places. I hope you like staying at our place
