Interaction with Guests
We live here in the same building, on the ground floor level :-) You can ask us for help with any information you might need :-)
Our neighborhood is safe and everyone takes absolutely great care of each others property :-) We couldn't have better neighbors if we hand picked them ourselves :-)
Getting around from here, couldn't be easier! The subway & the bus are just one to two blocks from us and were on the strip where you access Central Park and most of the popular museums :-)
Other Things to Note
The shopping mall is just about 10 blocks from us and we can give you the best tip, in shopping big!!! At a fraction of the cost, for designer clothes :-)
The rules are simple. There is no smoking in our brownstone building. We enjoy a smoke free environment. If you smoke this isn't the place for you and if you brake anything, replace it please :-) That also applies to any stained towels or linen. Discard anything stained and
please replace it. There is a Target Store on 116th Street & Pleasant Avenue in a big shopping Mall :-)
He had a great time at Blanca and Teddy's studio. They live on the ground floor of a beautiful New York City house. The studio is on the first floor. When we arrived Teddy was waiting for us and made us immediately feel welcomed. He recommended a few places around the block. He was really kind, one of the best host we've ever had for sure! The studio itself was very nice and comfortable. We had a great surprise with the balcony. It was lovely to have breakfast there in the morning or tea after a long day walk. Situated on the back side of the house, the place is very calm with a nice view on the backyards. We really enjoyed it plus, we had a blast watching the squirrels running after each other!
Located two blocks away from Central Park and the museums area, it's also well connected to all great spots by bus and subway. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking forward to feeling in a cosy, tidy place with great hosts.

L'appartement est conforme à la description, très propre et fonctionnel. Il est par ailleurs situé à proximité du métro (pour aller du nord au sud et inversement), des arrêts de bus (pour aller d'est en ouest et inversement) et de commerces. Blanca et Teddy sont des hôtes très sympathiques et chaleureux prêts à répondre à toutes questions.
Blanca and Teddy were very welcoming. They offered us flexible check in and check out times due to our overnight flights. The apartment was cozy and comfortable. It was in a perfect location, making buses and metro very accessible to us!
Thank you! So much for your very nice review :) We are still under renovation. Soon we will be making new changes like, replacing the front doors to the building, the studio you were in needs the bathroom extended with a bigger bathroom sink, and lastly the bed will be a queen size bed :) Hopefully you will come back to see the changes ;) You will always be welcomed back, For sure!!!
We enjoyed our stay, the studio was clean, very nice and had everything we required. We also enjoyed staying in East Harlem for some authentic NYC flavour! Blanca is a great host, offering assistance where required, but otherwise leaving you to enjoy your own privacy.
L'accoglienza di Blanca e Teddy è stata particolarmente calorosa. Si sono subito mostrati estremamente disponibili e pronti ad aiutarci in ogni momento.
L'appartamento corrispondeva perfettamente all'annuncio e alle foto pubblicate: letto comodo, cucina e bagno funzionali. C'è anche un piccolo terrazzo per rilassarsi o fare colazione. Pulizia ottima.
Il quartiere, situato tra Manatthan e Harlem, è vivace e sicuro, ha supermercati, metropolitana e locali.
