The space

2017: Available In October Perfect for Columbia Students international professional and graduate students, internships, or any other furnished housing needs. Please consult calendar.

Stay in a beautiful penthouse duplex apartment on upper west side. We are located at W 108th and Columbus 2 blocks from Central Park West and two blocks from Morning side Park. 2 Blocks away are red line trains (1 local/2+3 express - located on Broadway which is lined with fresh markets, restaurants, bars, bakeries) and the other direction is the B (gold) C (blue) trains taking you into Times Square, grand central etc. Transfer to the east side at 42nd and below.

I live here and when I say I looked at 40 apartment building in this area before I found and fell in love with this one I wouldn't be lying. Most apartments in Manhattan are cut up shoeboxes and this one is totally original with high ceilings, roof patio, and large eat in kitchen.

The Neighborhood. We consider ourselves SUPER lucky to live in such a great NON touristy neighborhood. Around here are mostly students, families and locals.
Next to us is Zanny's cafe. There's a yummy crepe restaurant across the street and a banging pizza place on the corner. (best pizza tho is on 110 and Amsterdam). Good ole' Ranch Deli for the quick stop and they make a good Reuben, Wine shop across the street is awesome and the same owner owns Manhattan Beer and Vine across the street Columbus and 109th). Izzola for Italian food and a great American bistro is right next door. Several bars on Amsterdam and Broadway. Orange 67 in Harlem rocks and is a ten minute walk and a little further up is the famous Red Rooster.
On W 98th and Columbus is a Whole Foods and on Broadway two blocks over are three fresh food markets, will recommend all of them for great deals on produce. There are some little markets on Amsterdam as well.

**WALK UP Building. 4 flights we are on the 5th floor (top).

Amenities of the apartment:'
Washer dryer inside the apartment - Non Coin. Yay Forever.
I know this is better than your very own Willie Wonka Chocolate factory so figured I'd list it first.
Rooftop deck with dining table (for good weather use - and looks really pretty in snow too :)
Two story Duplex. All the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the apartment for added privacy. Awesome sauce.
top floor - okay we ain't gonna lie, it's a walk up. four flights. But just think how good your buns are gonna look. It's better than jazzercise.
Red Oak Wood floors throughout
Chef kitchen with stainless steel appliances and French door fridge
Freshly custom painted by yours truly.

Room has walk in closet, built in shelving and Queen sized real tempurpedic bed with nightstand and DESK. Room is a good size. This is Manhattan and the apartment is not a shoebox. Score.

This is a quiet house, very peaceful. LOVE watching movies. Go Apple TV! Yay Netflix. Maybe on the weekends when it's not midterms or a jazillion papers are due have dinner or play board games, possibly go out or well, work.

For you smokers out there - there is a rooftop that allows smoking otherwise not in the house.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole House outside of the bedrooms occupied by others :)

Interaction with guests

I live here more than half the year so I totally do when I'm here in a non overbearing manner. Mostly though roomie and I are studying and working. Sometimes we watch movies together or eat together.

Other things to note

This is a 2 story apartment - which is what the legal term Duplex refers to. 1/2 bath on the first floor + kitchen, livingroom, this bedroom and across the apartment the 2nd bedroom.
Upstairs is full bath, roof patio, laundry room, and 3rd bedroom. All bedrooms are separated from each other which offers great additional privacy. No bedrooms share a common wall.

First of all, my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) were amazing, they really made my stay in New York more enjoyable. I also enjoyed the neighbourhood. It is a lively non-touristic neighbourhood with a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. What is particularly great is the distance from the apartment to Columbia University, it is indeed walking distance 10-15 minutes. Also the subway for the red and blue line are really close, just a couple of blocks away. This is extremely convenient! The apartment is spacious, although my room looked somewhat bigger on the pictures. However, I was disappointed with the excessive heating in my room (not the rest of the apartment). There was no way to turn down the heat (although that seems to be the status-quo for New York apartments I've been told) and I had to leave the window in my room open 24/7 and it was still extremely hot in the room. This makes it unpleasant to actually spend time in the room, besides sleeping, so keep that in mind when you are looking for a room to stay in. The upside of this is that you can spend more time with your (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) in the living room, and that is a win because they are awesome!

Js is a charming hostess and made me feel very welcome. She was very helpful and cheerful in answering all my queries. I would recommend her to everybody. The apartment has quite a deal of charm and is very well looked after. It is extremely clean and very well located. The Upper West side is a great place for visiting New York

The apartment is located on the upper west side close to the C & B subway lines on 110th St., and only a few blocks further from the 1 train at 110th. The bedroom is located just off of the kitchen. There is a sliding door that comes out of the wall for privacy, but does not lock. I concur with a previous reviewer that noted the apartment could have been much cleaner, particularly given the quality of the pictures. There is a half bathroom on the first floor and a full bath on the second. The shower had trouble draining for the first couple days of my visit, but this issue was fixed by removing the hair stopper in the shower drain. Jianna's friend Maka was looking after the apartment while Jianna is away. There was another AirBnB guest staying in one of the other bedrooms, and Maka was extremely helpful anytime either of us had a question regarding the apartment.

Hi Frank - Well we hired a professional cleaning service named Kleen Green to come in the day of your arrival and the house was professionally cleaned for four hours by that service when you moved in. SO I am very surprised to hear that the house was found dirty in any way. I was informed by Maka however, that the house was not kept cleaned and that the guests staying (you and other guest) left the house very dirty specifically the bathroom, kitchen, and floors. We do clean the house thoroughly before your arrival however we cannot clean up after you every day nor should we have to. If you wanted that type of Maid service you needed to notify and pay for that up front. My friend did specifically said you left the house filthy, hence I did not give you any review because I had nothing positive to say about the experience. Would not host this guest again. Thank you for letting us know about the shower drain- the reason you had to remove the hair stopper was because it was full of hair and soap scum and you actually have to remove your hair after a shower.

I spent three months at Jianna's apartment and she was really nice, always available, made me feel at home. The location is perfect, it is close to centraI park and the neighborhood is quiet but with plenty of bars, cafes,groceries and everything you need, so I strongly recommend it if you are planning traveling to NYC. Thanks for everything I will miss you!

I spent 3 months in Jianna's house. It was incredible! You feel it like is your home. If you want to talk, you will have amazing roommates to share experiences with. Otherwise, you will have your own spot and nobody will disturb you. The house is complete with all the utilities and tools that you need for your stay. Also, is very clean and organized. The neighborhood has everything to walking distance, and the two major subway lines to move from north to south and to connect from east to west in Manhattan, pass really close (2 or 3 blocks from the building). Totally recommended!

Jianna's apartment was clean and cosy, exactly as advertised. Although we didn't get to meet her, she was sweet and professional over email and everything went smoothly. Would definitely stay again!
