About this listing
This is a windowless crash pad for the money conscious traveler. You will sleep like a baby as it is pin drop quiet because you will not hear the outside noise of the city and it is very well decorated and cozy with all the amenities you will need.
Small very private bedroom with a very comfortable pillow top queen size bed located in the very front of the apartment so you will not have to walk through a common area or living room to get to it. Very quiet as there is no window facing out to the noisy streets. The bedroom is located right near the shared bathroom, so it will be kind of like your own bathroom as your area is very far from mine. The apartment is located on the second floor if an elevator building.
Even though it's small, there is a lot of storage space as there is a nice size dresser in the room with 3 big drawers. On the dresser is a small flat screen TV with cable. On the inside and outside of your door are many hooks to store clothing, coats etc. The room is pin drop quiet because it has no window, but it is very cozy and comfortable and very nicely decorated. and there is a dressing area outside of your room so it feels bigger than it really is.
The bed is a very comfortable queen size bed with nice fresh clean linens. Fluffy white fresh clean towels are also available during your stay, as many as you may need.
Outside your room there is a small dressing area with a nice big mirror. This makes the room feel a bit bigger. There is a little sitting stool here that you can sit on to remove your shoes etc. and a foldable tray table.
There is free super fast WIFI available. I also have a printer if you need to print something you can email it to me. An ironing board, clothes steamer and hair dryer are also available.
There is also parking on the street if you have a car. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes you have a circle a bit. Parking garages are all around as well.
You will have your room and the dressing area space just outside your area to spread out, unpack etc. The kitchen is the first area upon entering the apartment, please feel free to store food in the refrigerator, make your self coffee or tea and prepare breakfast if you'd like.
The bathroom is located just next to your room, so you won't have to worry about waking or bothering me :-). It is a shared bathroom, so I will always be very quiet and I also do not have a schedule so I won't need the bathroom every morning. I sleep late so it's all yours pretty much in the mornings. The shower and bathtub are very clean and the water pressure is great!
The area beyond the kitchen is private and off limits as this leads to my studio and my private area.
Interaction with Guests
I am a jewelry designer. I'm very friendly and love to meet new people. I am around as I work from home during the day. I have a lot of knowledge about the city as I've been here for a long long time. I will guide you and help you figure out whatever it is that you may need. If I am unable to be present during your check in I am able to leave the keys for you securely and easily this happens very rarely.
You will love this neighborhood. Chelsea is known for it's great restaurants, Art Galleries, it's close proximity to Union Square, The West Village and the Meatpacking District and historical landmarks. It's located on the Westside of lower Manhattan and near many subways.
My apartment is a 10 minute walk from Union Square, West Village, Meatpacking District and Highline. It is also located about 2 minutes away from these subway lines:
A,C,E (Blue line), 1,2,3 (Red Line), cross town L (Grey line), F,M (Orange Line). The 4,5,6 (Red Line) and B,D (Orange line) are located about 10 minutes walk away.
The A and E go direct to JFK airport so easy to arrive from the subway and leave, just 1 city block away!
Other Things to Note
SUMMER WEEKEND CHECK IN:
IF YOU ARE CHECKING IN AFTER 6PM ON A FRIDAY OR ANYTIME DURING A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS MOSTLY, I OR MY ASSISTANT (WHO ONLY WORKS MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY UNTIL 6) MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE TO CHECK YOU IN. THIS IS FINE, PLEASE DO NOT PANIC AS I HAVE A LOCK BOX OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING THAT HOLDS YOUR KEYS TO THE APARTMENT. I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE CODE TO OPEN IT AND LET YOU KNOW IN ADVANCE IF NO ONE CAN BE HERE. I WILL ALWAYS LET YOU KNOW. THE LOCKBOX IS IN MY BIKE BASKET LOCATED JUST IN FRONT OF MY BUILDING'S MAIN DOOR. THIS LOCK BOX MUST BE BROUGHT UP WITH YOU, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE BIKE BASKET. ALSO, IF POSSIBLE, I CAN LEAVE THE KEYS WITH A TRUSTED NEIGHBOR WHO WILL BE HERE WHEN YOU ARRIVE I WILL GIVE YOU THE BUZZER NUMBER IF THAT IS THE CASE. THE LOCKBOX IS THE LAST RESORT IF A NEIGHBOR ISN'T AVAILABLE.
The room is very quiet because it does not have a window to the outside so if you feel you may be claustrophobic then maybe this might not be for you. It is very well decorated and very clean and cozy and most people are here to sleep and are out most of the day anyway, right?
There is a very shy female cat Pinkerton who will not bother you at all and a very sweet, friendly 11 yr old female Cocker Spaniel named Daisy Mae who will check you out upon arrival. They both stay with me on my side of the apartment mostly and I can block them from entering your area if they bother you, please do not be concerned to tell me as I would like to make your stay as comfortable as possible. :-)
***EARLY CHECK IN/LATE CHECK OUT
Please respect the check in/check out times and understand that there may be other guests here even if you arrive early or need to leave late. I am always happy to store your bags until check in time and store your bags for the day if you need a late check out. They will be stored in a locked closet that I only have access to if small enough. Please understand that use of the bathroom or kitchen won't be available once you have checked out or if you arrive for early check in as there may be other guests present, if not then by all means! :-)
Please, no shoes in the apartment. You may leave them in the dressing area just near the front door.
No cooking in kitchen, you may use the refrigerator to store juices, yoghurt or make tea etc. but please no major food preparation or cooking is allowed unless otherwise arranged like if I am out of town and you have the place to yourself for a few days but you are in the greatest city in the world and there are many inexpensive places to eat around here, enjoy them!
Please, no unannounced house guests
Please, no loud music.
Please do not enter the space beyond the kitchen, doing so will result in the end of your stay.
Please keep all conversation here on Airbnb
please do not email, call or text me unless it is an absolute emergency as using multiple platforms to communicate can get confusing and it's always safer and easier to keep all conversations in one place, so please only message me on here on airbnb!
