My husband and I travel to the upper west side to visit our son and daughter in law often. They are expecting their second child in May and we will travel to the city more often this spring. .We do not smoke, and while we have a dog, we would never bring her with us.
We are big coffee drinkers, and I am a very good cook but we would do very little cooking while staying in the city as we love to experience all that the city has to offer in restaurants plus we would be spending a great deal of our time with our son and his family.
We have been using AIRBNB for several years and have been very happy with the places we have stayed, all of our hosts have been great, easy to deal with and we are thankful that they allowed us the use of their place. We are older, very quite and would be very respectful of your apartment.
We have owned our present home on Cape Cod for over 25 years and would treat your place like our own. When in a place we tend to watch TV at night, travel with our IPAD and spend time reading.
Many times our son has met the apartment owner to pick up a key before we arrive and when we have met the owner we can do that around noon of the day we plan to arrive. If you should have any questions please let me know. Karen and Bob
