The Space

Stay in a beautiful penthouse duplex apartment on upper west side. Located at W 108th and Columbus 2 blocks from Central Park West and two blocks from Morning side Park. A block or two away are e 1,2,3 trains (located on Broadway which is lined with fresh markets, restaurants, bars, bakeries) and the other direction is the A C trains taking you into Times Square, grand central.

On the block is a wonderful neighborhood cafe, a crepe restaurant delis, little stores galore. There is a whole foods on 98th and on broadway two blocks away are three large grocery stores. A trader joes is on upper west side in the 70's and broadway.

Two story
Penthouse top floor apt - yay no heels tap dancing above your head.
Red Oak Wood floors throughout
High ceilings in all the bedrooms and most of the main area.
Chef kitchen with stainless steel appliances and French door fridge, love this fridge. You will too.
Freshly custom painted
Netflix. HBO - that means you can watch Game of Thrones even on your vacation, Itunes movies. Hip Hip Horay!

Bedroom has real closet the size of some apartments in Manhattan. Don't believe me - check out the village. Bed is pillow top mattress - a real bed not a futon, not a dorm room tiny twin, but a QUEENl bed with drawers for storage. two large windows that face west and have a great view. Ceilings are high and custom painted as well. High quality drapes, good linens, comforter, new fresh towels. You will be happy.

Very quiet neighborhood and apartment and love to keep it peaceful and zen here! :) There are many bars in the area however for when you'd like to venture out.

This is the second available room in the 3 bedroom apartment. For stays under one month, two people are welcome. Over that must be one person only.

Guest Access

House ie kitchen, bathrooms, living room, washer dryer and rooftop patio.

Interaction with Guests

I'm not home very much but when I am home I do interact with them if they are open and friendly.

The Neighborhood

The wine shop across the street, it's where I buy all of my wine. The deli across the street makes a banging Reuben. There are several cafes and a little restaurant wine bar that opened on 109 and columbus. Plus there's a Wholefoods and a Marshalls ten blocks away. Score!

Getting around

I am in between two major transit lines the C/B (blue and yellow line) and the 1 train (red line) both run up and down the west side of manhattan and the B goes all the way to brooklyn. The metro stations are two blocks away.

  • We had such a nice time in New York and in Jianna's appartment! It was great located so we could reach everything within short time! The room was enough for two people and clean! Every question we had before the trip was answered quickly!! Thanks again for hosting us and we can only recommend this place!

Jianna est très sympathique et nous avons partager des discussions intéressantes.
    Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse.

  • Jianna and Alex were great hosts, they were very nice and hospitable. Even though we were mostly enjoying the location in NYC, we had a few good talks. Jianna is always open to give you tips about things you must do in the city. The house is very peaceful and it feels like you are at home very quickly. When you step outside it’s a quiet neighborhood, so you’re away from the busy city. You’re back at the city center really soon by subway! Our room was clean and had a comfortable bed. I would recommend this room to a young couple/person, it gives you the whole New York experience to ‘live’ in New York with a roommate for a while. Also the 4 stairs give you a good exercise every day!

  • Lovely house and hostess. Nice and clean house, Jianna was very helpful and the city has no secrets for her.

  • It would be easy to write a review about the great location of this apartment. Central Park, the Subway, countless bars and eateries. Yes. Too easy. Instead I want to talk about something more important. Something I thought was missing in New York. I'm talking about heart. Jianna and her sidekick/secret husband Alex welcomed me in and made my last month in New York beyond wonderful. It is the people that make any adventure great - and these two were two of the best. Sure they may have dabbled in the consumption of my very fine Shiraz and been all too happy to feast on late night Pastrami from the deli across the street - but what I got in return was a couple of friends, a great time and a yearning to return. An incredible host. A great apartment. An experience I will cherish.

    Response from Jianna:

    Omg late night pastrami!!! I feel like I can't even have it now unless I'm mooching off yours! Hurry up and come back before I head to LA for the summer so we can BBQ on the roof. And bring R2.

  • I stayed at the appartment for 8 nights, it's a great location but more then that it was a great hosting experience. Jianna (email hidden), she is very welcoming and I felt at home at the first 5 minutes.
