:::A NOTE FROM YOUR HOST:::

Hi There,
When visiting New York people want to stay in an affordable, nice, clean place… and that is exactly what we are offering!! Although the Bronx is not as popular as Manhattan (the city), the Bronx has a lot to offer, and a lot of historical landmarks which include, but not limited to: Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Zoo, the Bronx Botanical Garden, City Island, etc. Let’s not forget, the Bronx is the birthplace of rap! As your host, we will provide you with a guidebook of places to visit in New York City (five boroughs). The Bronx is filled with interesting spaces, parks, community gardens… there so much to see that there won’t be a dull moment! The Bronx is a very big place so these places may not be very close but they're worth the trip, but there are trains (4, D, and B) and buses (BX 1, BX 2, BX 3, BX 32 & BX36) really close by to the apartment, so you only need a Metrocard! We will supply you with maps and resources so your trip can be as enjoyable as possible.

We look forward to meeting you!

Jose and Ysaira

  • Jose was best host ever! My wife and I had wonderful time with Jose's house. They gave us special offer because we are Korean. We brought Korean snack for them. Their location was conveniently closed to grocery store and subways.Even though it was first time to travel NY, I went to anywhere I wanted. I hope that we were great guest as well. If we got a chance to visit in NY again, I wish I want to stay there as well.

  • Jose is a great host and very helpful in showing you how to get around New York. Anything you have questions about or need, he'll do what he can to accommodate you. Keep in mind you're going to be staying in the Bronx, every apartment/residential building in that part of NYC is over 100 years old. Everything is going to look old and run down and probably needs repair at some point, don't have expectations of a cozy 2 year old condo. Jose does his best to get the building owners and the building supervisor to repair everything in the apartment. His is the most well maintained apartment in the whole building because he fights so much with the dodgy owners. Have some common sense and help clean up after yourself because it's not fair that he has to pick up all your hair and crap in the bathroom or room. The apartment is a 2 minute walk from the 4 train which will take you all the way through Manhattan including a stop at Grand Central station.

  • I had a very comfortable stay at Jose's place. He was very accommodating, responsive and the room was clean and nice. Thank you!

  • I had such a good time my two times staying with Jose and Ysaira, I booked the other room for my cousins, who decided to enjoy New York with me. Jose and Ysaira, gave us everything we needed and I also got to go places that I had missed on my first stay here. Jose is the best, he does a very good job informing us of everything that New York has to offer, if you want to come to a great place and learn about New York, this is the place to be.

    Adrianna you are more like family than anything else. Please you are always more than welcome to stay with me at anytime, and like I told you for a much cheaper rate. You are the 4th person to return to stay with us, and for that I truly appreciate your loyalty. thank you for everything.

  • Our stay with Jose was exactly what we needed. Jose was excellent- he stayed wake to meet us for our arrival at 3:00am and made sure we had everything we needed in the room. He was cheerful and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean and had all the necessities - a bed, refrigerator, television, many electrical outlets, towels and linens. The shower was hot and the washroom was clean. We brought groceries and cooked in the kitchen one day, which was equipped with all the basic utensils we needed to prepare a meal. Our only concern to warm others about would be the noise level: the neighbours played loud music a lot, the mini fridge sometimes made a high-frequency humming sound, and the radiator was sometimes noisy. None of this was a big deal for us, but it might be for someone who is really sensitive to noise. Overall, Jose's room in the Bronx is nothing fancy, but will surely meet all the needs of any simple traveller. It can not be overstated that Jose is an excellent host!

    Response from Jose And Ysaira:

    You guys were very awesome, I am sorry about the noise. Unfortunately for
    the past three weeks that you guys arrived, some obnoxious neighbors moved
    in, and started playing the music really loud. I called the police various
    times, and it took them after you guys left, for them to put a stop to that
    loud music playing, thank goodness. About the radiator, I have been telling
    management that I need it replaced, because that particular one, makes too
    much noise compared to the other in the home. I guess they think since
    winter is only 3 months a year, its not that important to address. The
    humming of the fridge is my fault, I should have researched the fridge
    better before purchasing it, the fridge on the other room doesn't make any
    noise, but I bought them at two different times. Other than that, I hope
    you guys consider staying with me again, if you guys ever decide to return.
    Now that airbnb is charging 7.2%, if you guys ever decide to return, you
    can contact me directly, and I will leave it a whole lot cheaper, than the
    first time, because you guys are more like friends than anything else:) So
    you guys, would technically save at least 15% from the regular airbnb price
    that they charge for staying with me.

  • I really enjoyed my experience with Jose. They were very helpful and considerate, they even helped me with my personal problems. They even took me around places and the airport for free and finally helped me. They were always there to help me at all hours of the night.

  • Our stay at Jose's house was great! He offered us a really big and comfortable room. Even if he was busy during our stay we could phone him every time to ask for secrete spots, a laundry or whatever.
    He is a likable host! And it's also really easy to get into the city center from there.

  • The room is very nice and has everything you need. Jose (I didn't meet Ysaira) is really friendly and helpful and can direct you in the right way so you can see all the things in New York you would like to see. The house is also close to the Bronx Zoo which is beautiful and I recommend going there. The 4 train is close by and will make your daily trips to New York City fast and easy. I had a great time in NYC and a safe and good place to come home to.

  • With my 3 friends it was our first time in New-York we spent a very good time during 5 days ! With the metropolitan card you can go everywhere in NYC, and there are 2 stations at 5 and 10 minutes from Jose and Ysaira appartment.
    The first day Jose explained to us all the good places to visit in NY, and the places to avoid, it was very helpful to us. Jose was still available to help us in case of problem.
    We enjoyed this experience ! :D
    Thanks Jose and Ysaira.
