Midtown West / Columbus Circle PH 2

Apartment - Private room · W 57th St, New York, NY 10019, United States

The Space

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 - PH2. 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)2 offers a Full bed, closet w/ shelving and wooden hangers for your use, 22'' LCD HDTV w/ HD Cable box, and a dual iPhone/ iPod speaker docking station. 450 thread count, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and an equally nice comforter 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!

  • Jeffrey's apartment is really beautiful and comfortable, just a little smaller than you can picture in the photos, but definitely big for New York standards. Very good location, it is close to a subway station and there are restaurants/pharmacies/deli/shops nearby.
    The only downside would be the stairs, but you only have to climb them once a day. It's nyc and you're visiting, right?
    Jeffrey is a wonderful host. Very friendly, and he makes you feel at home.
    I recommend you stay at his place.

  • Jeffrey was a great host! The transaction was flawless, the apartment very clean and the location was optimal. Will stay with Jeffrey again.

    August 2013
  • I was at Jeffrey's Apt for 22 days and really is what it's advertised. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable and is in impeccable condition of cleanliness and order. The location is very good, very safe a few steps to the subway and close to many attractions. Jeffrey and his roommates were always very friendly and willing to help where needed. It is highly recommended to stay with Jeffrey, not only for the department but by the genuine warmth of its people.

    Estuve en la casa de Jeffrey por 22 dias y realmente es lo que se publicita. El departamento es amplio, muy comodo y esta en impecables condiciones de limpieza y orden. La ubicacion es muy buena, con el subterraneo a unos pasos y cerca de muchas atracciones. Jeffrey y sus compañeros fueron siempre muy amables y dispuestos a ayudar en lo que fuera necesario. Es altamente recomendable la estadia en lo de Jeffrey, no solo por el departamento, sino por la calidad humana de sus habitantes.

  • Exactly what was needed for my short trip. In fact, I wish my stayed in NY was longer. I did not hangout in the apartment, just to shower, change and sleep. Jeffrey was polite & informative, this exceeded my expectations. His flat is decorated tastefully with some cool period design features. The location was just perfect for me, the area is safe and just a few blocks from the Hudson River.
    With a seem'less check in/out, I would definitely recommend Jeffrey's place. Thank you for a great stay,

    May 2013
  • We were the first time in NYC and it was amazing stay at Jeffrey's place. We love his apartment and the way he furnished it:) It's a big and clean apartment.
    It's great located to explore NYC. We had a lot of space in our room and a comfortable bed!
    Jeffrey is a great host. Thanks a lot!

    April 2013
  • Jeffrey was a fantastic host! He is very welcoming, very friendly, and he made us feel very much at home! We are so happy we chose to stay with him; it was perfect! We would definitely stay here again, and the price was a fantastic deal.
    Jeffrey's place is clean, well maintained, spacious, and has easy and quick access to subways, park, etc. We had the perfect balance of a private room and at the same time felt like Jeffrey was an engaging host in a welcoming home.
    I give the highest recommendation!!

  • Great location, the Time Warner towers, Central Park & 5th Ave are all within walking distance. Jeffery is super laid back and his set up is so good the place pretty much runs itself and very smoothly. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

    November 2012
  • What a phenomenal place to stay! We felt comfortable and relaxed, like we were at home or visiting with friends. This beautiful space is filled with furniture and decor that truly matches the character of the penthouse. The location is perfect, whether you're looking to visit landmarks like Central Park and MOMA, or (email hidden) like a New Yorker and wander into one of many incredible restaurants on 9th Avenue.

    Jeffrey is an impeccable host. After being stranded in the dark after Hurricane Sandy, he took us in on extremely short notice and made sure we were well taken care of. I don't doubt we'll see him again, whether it's just to stay in touch or to take another impromptu "staycation" in the Upper West Side. Thank you!

    November 2012
  • This was the best possible location we could have stayed at. It's a very safe area and walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go! It was very clean and we loved that we could help ourselves to anything in the kitchen.

    October 2012
  • I really enjoyed my stay in Jeffrey's place! I went to NY on vacation with my boyfriend, and we had a wonderful time there.
    The apartment was really clean and the location was perfect! Near Central Park and Times Square (all what tourists want (= ).
    As we spent most of our time outside, we did not have the chance to meet Jeffrey better, but I am sure he is great guy and we would love to go back if I have the chance!
