The Space

This is a small, cozy and very very quiet room for the money conscious traveler. Ideally this if for one person, however 2 people do fit comfortably if you don't have a lot of large bags.

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 and movie channels. 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. You will not be awakened by the typical NYC traffic, sirens and honking horns.

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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

WEEKEND CHECK IN:

IF YOU ARE CHECKING IN AFTER 6PM ON A FRIDAY OR ANYTIME DURING A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, I OR MY ASSISTANT (WHO ONLY WORKS MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY) 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. ALSO, IF POSSIBLE, I CAN LEAVE THE KEYS WITH A TRUSTED NEIGHBOR WHO WILL BE HERE WHEN YOU ARRIVE. 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.

There is a very shy female cat Pinkerton who will not bother you at all and a very sweet, friendly 10 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. :-)

  • Dawnella's place is perfect if you need a quiet and clean place to sleep. Very well localized and she is a friendly host.

  • L'appartamento è situato nel quartiere di Chelsa di Manhattan, ottimamente collegato in quanto icino alla stazione metropolitana di Union Square!
    La stanza (e l'appartamento) sono assolutamente senza finestre! e la stanza è veramente piccola! Inoltre non l'ho trovata molto pulita e durante tutta la settimana non è stato pulito ne bagno ne camera!
    Inoltre una mattina mi sono alzata e davanti la camera c'erano gli escrementi del cane!

  • Joie’s place is a very good choise for someone who wants to experience life on Manhattan. Compact living and nice bathroom. Best location. Joie was really helpful and flexible.

  • Dawnella's apartment is in the wonderful Chelsea section of Manhattan. I walked for miles to see the sights and eat great food. The bedroom itself is large enough for the double bed but little else. It's ideal for those who won't be staying there except to sleep. I needed to do some work with my laptop and it can be done if you're willing to improvise. Dawnella is available to help with getting around and other tips, but is not at all intrusive. Good value for an ideal location!

  • The room was as described and also at a very central location. You can reach everywhere in Manhattan and Brooklyn easily.

    Our only problem was one night when we were out dog picked up stuff out of our bag and chewed them. There were some medicine and gums inside the bag. We had the trash them. I'd definitely suggest put everything inside the room and close the door whenever you're out.

  • Joies kamer... fantastisch gelegen! Namelijk vlakbij alle leuke districten van NYC & het metrostation waar alle lijnen samenkomen. Time Square ben ik namelijk na 3x zien zat. Slenteren door alle wijkjes zoals West & East Village, Soho en Mainpacking district blijft gewoon leuk. En als je dit lopend doet, ontdek je steeds weer nieuwe leuke straatjes en tentjes voor breakfast of een borrel. Om de ligging raad ik Joie dan ook zeker aan. Alleen... bereid je wel echt voor op een kleine kamer zonder raam! Anders kan het tegen vallen. Maar als je hier op ingesteld bent, dan waardeer je gewoon enorm Joies gastvrijheid en denk je aan de top ligging die het heeft.

  • The apartment is exactly as described on the website. Great location, comfortable bed, and friendly host. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Pets were friendly too!

  • I must say that the fact that there was no window made me hesitate, but finally I decided to stay on Joie's place for 4 days.
    Well, the room was just what I needed, the bed was comfortable and prefect for a good rest after traveling all day long.
    I think the most important thing is the location, made me feel at home and woke up every morning with a smile on my face.(This is my second time at NY, and it really changed everything)
    Joie is super sweet and made me feel at home, I love her pets.. were very friendly and quiet.
    I highly recommend :)

  • I highly recommend Joie's apartment. Great location, room in the right size, cool host. For those concerned with space for luggage, there was enough space in a sort of hall pf the room for dropping the bags and jackets for me and my girlfriend. The dog and cat are also very calm so dont worry about them. Definetly would stay there again if back in NY.
