I am a thirty-something freelancing (actress, personal trainer, and bookkeeper) transplant from the South living here for the past 10 years. I enjoy being active, world travel, good food, and dancing...and hosting excited travelers!
The condo is yours to make your home. There is a closet, cabinet, and loft space, that I keep my personal things so no reason or need for you to access them.
Interaction with Guests
You'll be in communication with me personally. This is my home, so I clean it and am there to greet you, give you a tour and keys, and again to see you off!
Grove Street PATH station is 7 min walk (to and from NYC and Newark Airport).
Taxis are at the Grove Street station if you choose. The Jersey Avenue light rail is a 3 minute walk (within Jersey City and Hoboken).
Citibike (bike share program) station only two blocks away!
Keep the street off your feet. Kindly remove your shoes before entering the apartment.
Leave all dishes and pots clean. Wipe down stove top if necessary. Place a paper towel over microwaved items to prevent splashing. Place trash in appropriate bins.
Clean up your bathroom mess, i.e. the toilet rim and hair sitting on the drain- no one wants to see it.
The sheets are clean- I promise- so sleep between them, not on top of the white comforter. Remember, your luggage has been wheeled through the same stuff your shoes has, so please don't put your luggage on top of the white comforter.
No eating food on the couch.
Please take precaution not to damage the furniture- use coasters under glasses and don't throw sharp objects (like keys) on surfaces.
Turn off heat or AC when leaving the apartment.
Turn off lights (make sure the dimmers “click” off) when not in use.
