Interaction with Guests

I work a lot, as do most New Yorkers, but I do my best to communicate clearly welcome all of my guests. :)

The Neighborhood

1 block to subway/grocery store
1 block from duane reade (convenience/pharmacy)
1 block to cheap laundry service (just drop off and pick up next day!!)
5 minute walk to bank of america AND chase bank
5 minute walk to Planet Fitness Gym ($10/month and brand new!!!)
24-hour deli across the street!

other subways in the area:
B, S trains at prospect park - 7 minute walk
2, 5 trains at winthrop street - 10 minute walk

ROOF ACCESS! (cigarettes allowed only on roof)

Southeast Corner of Prospect Park, the second largest park in NYC. Designed by the same man who designed Central Park!!

Please be aware that while I believe the area to be safe, it is a bit rougher and if you feel uncomfortable, let me know immediately and we will work with Airbnb to get you re-accomodated to a situation that is better for you. I never want any of my guests to have an unpleasant stay. It is my goal to provide the best accommodation in this price range, and believe based on my numerous positive reviews, that I have achieved that goal. None of my guests have ever had any safety issues thus far. We are ideally located, a 90 second walk from both the subway and the park.

Getting Around

1 Block to the Q train at Parkside Avenue, couldn't be more convenient! Buses on the corner as well.

You may use the kitchen, but there is no use of the oven. I have a surveillance camera in the kitchen because we had some confusion between roommates on cleaning dishes and tidying up, it also gives me the opportunity to see who is coming in and out of the apartment, this is for your safety as well as mine. The footage is automatically deleted after 7 days, and I usually never look at it unless there is a problem. It surveils only the public kitchen and hallway spaces, no private areas. If this is a problem for you, please do not inquire about staying with me.

House Rules

It is very important to me that we are able to communicate clearly. Airbnb is different then a hotel and I want the experience to be positive.

No overnight guests unless approved before your stay. No guests in the apartment who are not on the reservation, this is rules set by my insurance company.

You must have a phone and be able to call my US phone number to "instant book" this listing.

If you do not understand english well, do not reserve the apartment.

You may check-in at the apartment between 1pm-5pm, or if you want to come after 5pm keys must be picked up in Manhattan by Union Square. I'm sorry but I cannot accommodate early check-in's or luggage drop-offs.

IF you want to arrive before 1pm, please DO NOT book the apartment.

Check-Out is 11:30am, you may store your luggage in our living room (at your own risk) on your final day, please put it behind the grey curtain and keep your keys until you return to get the luggage.

Luggage storage is a free consideration, therefore by leaving your luggage in the shared area of the apartment, you are doing so AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR BELONGINGS IN THE SHARED AREAS OF THE APARTMENT. PLEASE KEEP ANYTHING VALUABLE LOCKED IN YOUR BEDROOM AT ALL TIMES.

Remember to leave your keys on the table in the living room when you have picked up your luggage.
Quiet after 10pm, please respect our neighbors and the other (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

Dishes are cleaned, dried, and put away promptly after use. This prevents a pile up that tends to occur when one person has left their stuff for the next to clean.

TOWELS and linens for the bed are provided.

Please, remember to HANG your WET towel after shower so that they may dry and not begin to smell.

Bathroom to remain clean and tidy, you will store your personal items in your bedroom. Anything found in the bathroom is considered common use.

Please be respectful that there are 4 rooms sharing one bathroom, do your best to be quick with showers and if you do need to use the bathroom, give it a few knocks if the door is locked to let the person using the facility know there is someone waiting.

In the kitchen and the fridge, there are shelves marked with your room number, you may store your food there. Any unmarked shelves that have things on them, you are welcome to use (such as SALT, PEPPER, SUGAR, TEA, OLIVE OIL etc)

This is your home away from home, welcome! :) I work a lot and spend a lot of time with my girlfriend at her apartment, but I do hope to meet you during your visit even if just for a brief time. I've met a lot of wonderful new friends through airbnb.
