The Space

My home is not for so named Hipsters. I prefer down to earth and real people. It is our vibes and chemistry together that makes my place unique. No tricks, not for business...
I want you to feel at home of a friend. I take your hospitality personally. You will occupy a very private and the largest room that's fit for 3 in an L.E.S flat with an ample size closet. This room is very bright and Extra comfortable with lots of light. Style is minimal.
I design by profession, so I have kept the decor as simple and free of "stuff" so as to allow you space to breathe, think, and relax.
Fresh sheets and towels are provided. Make a request if it is not covered in my offer.
It is my intention to make your stay a memorable experience, but the rest is up to you...
*A 2nd bedroom in the apartment has a separate full bathroom.

My flat is a 2 flight of stairs walk-up in a 5 story building including all hours roof access with a panoramic view of New York! I'm at hand to help with your Luggage should you need me, please ask once reservation has been confirmed.
This is a great deal for amenities in a location as the Lower East side, consider the size, a highly competitive price. No other extra fees will be charged you. All is Included in your payment to (website hidden): I have lived in the city for the past 18 yrs, worked in Japan for past 8 yrs, and know a few special non tourist spots.

Interaction with Guests

I work from home so I'm often around to answer questions or solve problems if any. I like exchanging views and places of interests around the city.
Sometimes or often, I have been out to listen to music, check out art openings with my guests.

The Neighborhood

My area is still growing day by day with new and exciting things, for free live music, to mini Dance halls. 8 galleries on my block alone, no exaggeration!
About 10 minutes away, are located a 24 hours supermarket and Wholefoods Natural Market.
Some of the best restaurants of New York are in this area, many charming coffee shops, Like one serving *BLUE MOUNTAIN Coffee.
With The LOWER EAST SIDE VISITOR CENTER and THE TENEMENT MUSEUM a block away, there are no shortage of fun things to do.

  • Très bel accueil. Tunji est toujours disponible, aimable, il connait très bien NY et se fait fort de vous renseigner à chaque fois que vous le souhaiter. Un plus pour ceux qui galèrent en anglais ou qui voient leur compétences linguistique se liquéfier avec le décalage horaire: il parle Français !

  • We stayed at Tunji's place for 5 days and we had a great time! Tunji and his lovely dog Dao were fantastic hosts. Great location, clean room and bathroom, it had everything we needed. We would definitely go back :) thanks Tunji

    June 2014
  • Great room, lots of space to put your stuff.
    Very clean bathroom, always hot water available. Towels were provided, the bed was clean with fresh linnen, we were never out of toilet paper or anything :)
    Tunji is a very friendly host who lets you do your thing, which is exactly what we wanted. I would definetely recommend him to my friends.
    The neighborhood is very nice, near metro stations and we were always at ease, even at late hours.

    June 2014
  • Tunji and Dao were great hosts, he is a very pleasant person that helps you out with everything you need. The room was spacious and clean in combination with a good location to discover New York. We for sure advise people to stay over at Tunji!

  • We had a great time staying at Tunji's place. The room is very comfortable (great bed, we had a hard time getting up in the morning), and Tunji was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Highly recommended!

    Response from Tunji:

    Thx Timo. You were both graceful guests.

  • Tunji IS the best host you can have in New York. He's extremely respectful of your privacy, knows good places, especially in the neighborhood (and Lower East Side (email hidden) to live).
    The flat is nice and Tunji keeps it clean, like you see in the pictures. The F line is a good line for you if you want to be in Union Square in a few minutes.
    I enjoyed the stay, so much that I hope to have another one soon!

    February 2014
  • Tunji was an amazing host, the flat is nice and clean like in the pictures and it's very well located. I really enjoyed the stay and I recommend it 100%, will definitely come back!

    January 2014
  • Staying with Tunji was one of the best experiences of my life.
    Firstly Tunji is a wonderful person. Very warm and friendly and makes you feel at ease.
    The address at Orchard is surrounded by Metro stations with easy access to anywhere in Manhatten and Orchard street is a location for really beautiful galleries, bars and shops. Really interesting street.
    If you have any doubts, don't. Tunji's is the place to stay.

About
I am a designer of multiple cultures who has worked extensively in Japan. I live in one of the most newly exciting neighborhoods of Manhattan; the lower east side verging on Chinatown; a great location to start exploring downtown. Close to the "F" train within walking distance to Soho, Nolita, also getting to midtown to connecting trains to uptown museums, central park, all Airports and other attractions. My primary concern is your hospitality and comfort. Biking around the city all year round is among one of my pleasures, also is dancing, playing soccer, sculpting, painting. I love music of all genre that transcends cultures (Jazz, House, Electro, World, Opera, Tango, Flamenco and more...I have knowledge of spots where to listen and dance in the city. I was raised in Africa and Europe. I have traveled extensively and speak and write in French fluently. I also understand Japanglish!. I am a laid back person and respectful person who welcomes the same. No pretense in all honesty. In my world, "The sun is always shining"
