LONG TERM RENTAL PREFERRED - PRICE ADJUSTMENT POSSIBLE.
I travel quite a bit and spend at least half the week away from New York City so, truly, it's like having your own apartment for the price of a share. Don't mind friends over but NOT a party pad. No smoking of anything whatsoever in the apartment. You are responsible for keeping the apt neat and clean, with a consciousness of consideration at the forefront. I will do my part whenever I am there. If you need linens, you will let me know.
Please let me know if you want a long term rental... 6 months or more. That is my preference. We can talk about shorter terms as well. You will find it a peaceful and happy haven in a busy city. I'll fill you in on the neighborhood and New York City the best I can when you arrive. Always happy to have a chat. Always available should you need anything. Enjoyment of life and a positive attitude are encouraged and welcome!
Gym, Laundry, Rooftop Terrace/Solarium. Second bedroom/terrace private - please do not enter.
Interaction with Guests
I rarely stay the night at the apartment - when I'm there I'm into chatting after the work day is over. Interested and open.
This is a fun, safe, peaceful residential neighborhood steps away from transportation to greater New York. Good local shopping, incuding a Fairway and many restaurants to choose from. My favorite is Carl Shurz Park, a gem down the block from the apartment. Walk right down to the waterfront in minutes.
The crossdown and downtown buses stop right across the street from the apartment building on 86th Street. A short walk to the subway. Taxis are plentiful.
No Smoking. No pets - though I love them.
Clean Kitchen after each use.
Clean Bathroom and Tub Weekly.
About the Host, Wendy
I am a yoga teacher, travel consultant and filmmaker who lives in the Catskills for the better part of each month with occasional visits to my beautiful New York City apartment on the Upper East Side. I travel quite and bit and teach on the weekends at a spa upstate, so you essentially have the whole apartment to yourself for the price of a shared rental. I'm into having a good relationship with whomever stays at my home. Not really into the party mode but guests are welcome if you keep it down to a dull roar. I keep the place super clean and expect you to do the same, even in your bedroom. Feel free to use the living room, dining room, desk whatever you need. I'm into honesty and integrity so speak up and feel at home. I've always been involved in the arts so movies, music and art are my guiding lights. I'm pan-spiritual and environmentally conscious - you, I hope, follow your own star.
