Welcome to Casa Jeffrey!
I am happy to welcome into my home new friends from around the world! I live here full time and I rent out my three extra bedrooms. If you are looking for a true New Yorker experience, look no further! If you prefer something wholly private you should find another listing as I never rent out my entire apartment. It is possible I will have visitors in my other bedrooms so you may meet some interesting friends while you're here. I realize the kind of experience I offer isn't for everyone, so please give it some thought before booking.
I have three Guest Bedrooms and two Full Bathrooms here. I use one of the Bathrooms(Resident Bathroom) and the other is shared by our guests(Guest Bathroom). They are labeled in the photos as such. It is very likely you will be sharing the Guest Bathroom with other guests. Fear Not! I clean the bathrooms daily to ensure maximum comfort and cleanliness and each Guest Bedroom has ample wall hooks for storing your bath towels. That said, if one is occupied when you need it, you are more than welcome to use the other. Either way they are both recently renovated, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. Fresh towels are always on hand. I also provide some basic toiletries should you need them. There is always soap, q-tips, contact lens solution, band aids, aspirin and more on hand and available for your use should you need them.
I offer very flexible Check-In/ Check-Out times! Please let me know what time you plan to arrive/ depart so I may coordinate with our other guests. You may be asked to vacate your room by a certain time in order for me to have it cleaned in time for our next guests' arrival. You are always welcome to store your luggage in our living room until you are ready to depart.
This listing is ONLY for one Guest Bedroom - PH3. To book any of the other rooms please find their links and reviews through my profile, or follow the descriptions at the bottom of this (website hidden)3 offers 2 Twin beds which may be joined to form 1 King bed, a medium sized dresser, closet area with wooden hangers, a 32''LCD HDTV w/ HD DVR Cable box, Premium Cable and a dual iPhone/ iPod speaker docking station. 450 thread count, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and down comforters await you, as well as fresh towels, etc for the bathroom. There is a ceiling fan/ light with remote dimmer and also an Air Conditioner* in the window.

Privacy is easily obtained if you want it. If you're more social, then myself and my roommate are quite friendly. The house is always kept clean and in good order. There is no elevator here, and we are a 4 flight walk-up so please keep that in mind. I am more than happy to help you get your bags up and down though!
The real bonus on being on the top floor is all the great sunlight we get - 3 exposures and the views!
We are located 2 short blocks from Columbus Circle, Central Park and Hudson River Park. There is incredible dining options all around us. You will find we are extremely convenient to several subway lines( A, B, C, D, E, F, N, Q, R, 1 Trains), buses as well as Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Should you need to park, there are several garages on our block, however please be aware they are very expensive! We do not have/ offer on-site parking of any kind. We are well within walking distance to the Theater District, Lincoln Center, The Metropolitan Opera, The New York City Ballet, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the Upper West Side. A short stroll will take you to the fabulous shopping of 5th Avenue or the bright lights of Times Square.
Smoking is allowed here, but only on the terrace.
Hungry? Feel free to grab something in the kitchen. There is always a ton of food here. You're welcome to cook or even entertain a dinner party if you so wish. Just be prepared to return the kitchen the way you found it.
You're welcome to use the living room and kitchen as if it were your own. We want you to feel comfortable here!
Each guest will receive their own set of keys - one for the front door and one for the apartment door. Our individual rooms do not have locks! It is perfectly reasonable to be somewhat wary of this, but I trust in the good nature of all of our guests. Remember you are renting a room in my home. I have far more to lose here than you are bringing with you. This is not a hotel with hundreds of transients. Your privacy is respected 100%, 100% of the time! Should you feel less than comfortable with this situation it would likely be best for you to stay elsewhere.
Unless I am sleeping, I respond almost immediately to any inquiry. Please give me a clear picture of your intentions for staying here and whatever your specific needs may be. No one likes surprises at check-in! If you do not already have the AirBNB smartphone app, I highly recommend downloading it!
Below you will find descriptions of the other rooms we have to offer. Should you wish to book one or more of them instead, please follow the links to my other listings through my profile!

No room or area is off-limits. As a guest in my home you have access to every feature, room, and comfort.
As much or as little as you wish. A simple "hello" or "goodbye" is fine. More meaningful interactions are always welcomed!
My neighborhood is rich in history and quite unique! A few steps in any direction will take you to great cultural experiences, theater, nature, architecture, and shopping.
My apartment is 2 blocks from a major metro hub, 59th St/ Columbus Circle. From there you can get to almost anywhere!
Couldn't have had a better stay. The apartment was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the sheets were soft, the towels were fluffy, and Jeffrey was an excellent host.
Jeffrey was very nice and incredibly helpful—he really went out of his way to help me make travel arrangements for me and my brother. His home is beautiful—very well kept, clean, and inviting with lots of natural light. Although we didn't get a chance this time around, I REALLY wanted to cook in Jeffrey's kitchen! If we'd planned a different kind of trip, this would have been a wonderful treat, plus there's a Whole Foods just down the street which was very convenient. The location was perfect for getting around Manhattan. We'd definitely stay there again :) Another thing I should mention is that our beds were VERY firm, so if you have difficulty because of back problems, etc, sleeping on a firm mattress you might want to take that into account.
It was a pleasure to stay at Jeffrey's place for New Year! It was clean, exactly as the photos show it and Jeffrey was always helpful, with advice on transfers and getting around New York as well as helping us with our bags up the stairs when we arrived. We were free to use the printer, chill out of the sofas and help ourselves to whatever was in the fridge. Home from home!
Would love to stay here again on our next visit to New York.
I was visiting NY with a friend and we had great time staying at Jeffrey's place.
The apartment is awesome, event better than in the photos. A fantastic kitchen, fully equipped and as all the house furnished with taste. Nicely decorated bedroom and bathroom, comfortable beds and everything really, really clean.
The location is perfect to visit Manhattan and despite this the room was silent at night.
Jeffrey is a great host, friendly, kind and attentive. We were arriving Friday late evening and we had no problem checking-in, and since no one was expected the night of our check-out, we could take it easy and leave the bags in the room. When we arrived, Jeffrey showed us the flat, explained some basic things and told us no to hesitate to have coffee/tea and snacks if we wanted. We were out most of the time but in principle there is no problem if one wants to use the kitchen or live the flat more.
I definitely recommend staying at Jeffrey's place!
Jeffrey provided a great experience from start to finish. After making our reservation, Jeffrey was very quick to answer any questions I had and to offer advice. The room looks exactly like the pictures, and everything is clean and well maintained. Plenty of fresh towels and our 2 twin beds in PH3 were cozy and (website hidden)3 is also super quiet and the overall location is visitor friendly as are Seth and Jeffrey. My friend and I enjoyed interacting with our hosts and learning more about the city than a hotel concierge could provide. We also appreciated the added features such as recycling and use of umbrellas. Also of huge benefit was printing out boarding passes, a flexible checkout time, and the ability to store and come back for our luggage when ready to depart. We strongly recommend would stay there again. Thanks Jeffrey!
It was our third experience with airBNB, the two first one weren't so good but Jeffrey's place is just perfect !
We are two French au pair and just wanted to spend a short weekend in NY to have fun.
The place is exactly like the pictures, I really love the design of the flat and the location is just perfect, really safe.
Jeffrey's roomate are really nice too and really easy, we feel like home right away.
I am strongly recommanded this place !
My sister and I had a great experience staying at Jeffrey's place, the condo/apt was very clean, we had all the amenities of home available to us and loved that we were centrally located ( short walk to Central Park, Columbus Circle, Rockefeller Centre) and able to hop on the subway which is quite close to get around. We were also pleasantly surprised how quiet the building was which was a bonus! I recommend Jeffrey's place as a go-to affordable place to stay n NYC. Note: It is a 5 story walk up to his place, no elevators, no problem for us but worth noting.
We had 5 wonderful days at Jeffreys place.
The place is clean, cosy, and just like the pictures.
Jeffrey and his roommate + friends are very nice and helpful, and let you feel like you live en the appartment on same terms as them.
I can highly recommend people staying there and enjoy the hospitality and super location it as to offer.
All the best and ty for stay!
We stayed at Jeffrey's place for a week and enjoyed every minut. It was just as the pictures and he is always helpful. It was very clean and cosy. Nice to be able to us kitchen. We give our Best recomadation.
All the positive comments here are true, Jeffrey is a top notch host. He is very thoughtful of his guests and mindful of all the creature comforts one could want. His apartment is tastefully and creatively decorated with nice pieces and at the same time warm and inviting. How does he do it?! Also, a critical component for me is cleanliness. I have very high standards and Jeffrey's mad housekeeping skillz did not disappoint in the slightest. This was our first experience with Airbnb and our stay at Jeffrey's set the bar pretty high for all our future stays. If anyone out there is looking for an example on how to do it right, Jeffrey's your man.
