I'm a young working professional, originally from South Florida, where I grew up playing tennis and going to the beach. I also spent my summers at my family's Jersey Shore house. I love traveling and seeing the world, and have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to do so. My favorite place I have been so far is Ascona, Switzerland on Lago Maggiore. It's a beautiful little town on the Swiss/Italian border and has just the right amount of Italian "la dolce vita" paired with Swiss precision. My favorite books that I have read recently are the "Millennium Trilogy" series by Stieg Larsson and the Swedish movies are also really amazing. I am also a self-proclaimed techie, and I amaze my friends all the time with my savvy.
I have lived in the New York City area for 10 years now, so I am able to recommend places to visit during your stay and I think you will find my City Guide very helpful when getting to know the West Village neighborhood and its many shops and restaurants. Being in real estate and having worked on many projects on different neighborhoods, I know my way around the city very well and able to provide directions for you if you need help getting around.
I have rented out my apartment to members of the Airbnb community for almost a year now, and have had some great experiences. Feel free to read my reviews and ask questions.
My apartment is so cozy and comfortable and I think members of the Airbnb community will very much enjoy their stay. It is in the BEST location in NYC. It's very quiet and I wake up to birds singing every single morning! I am also very neat and clean and would love for my guests to be the same.
I travel quite often so feel free to let me know in advance if you are interested in the apartment for a future date.
