My place is just across the street from the unique Fort Tryon Park with its famous The Cloisters. It is close to Broadway, Dyckman Street and the spectacular Inwood Hill Park. You’ll love my place because of the comfy bed, the coziness, the quietness and the nature all over the neighborhood. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.
This beautiful and quite apartment features 2 fair sized bedrooms, a kitchen/dining room, a quite spacious lobby and a bathroom. There are windows all over the place which is a big plus.
This room in particular features a TV, 2 pieces of furniture with shelves, a fair sized table and an AC. It has 3 standard windows which guarantee lots of light and proper ventilation. It sleeps up to 5 guests. Its dimensions are 17.61 feet (5.37 meters) long and 11.71 feet (3.57 meters) wide which makes it very spacious. For sleeping arrangements I use automatic airbeds with control (brand: Aerobed Luxury Collection) topped with a 1.5 inches memory foam which makes them feel like real beds. I have queen (150 cm) and twin sizes (90 cm). The room fits up till 3 beds. When preparing the room with 3 beds the table has to be disassembled.
You need to let me know how you would like me to prepare the room based on the info provided above.
The other room “Lovely room in Inwood” is also listed. The two of them are ideal for a family and/or a group needing 2 rooms. If interested, you can check it out in my profile.
There wouldn't be more than 5 adult guests in the apartment (unless they were all from the same group/family in which cases it could be up to 10 guests).
Important: when making a request, remember to type in the right number of guests so that the system gives you the right price since there is an up charge of 30$ for any additional guests after the first two guests.
If there will be different amount of guests on some nights, you need to make separate reservations for those nights. Example: You want to stay a total of 4 nights. On the first 2 nights there will be 2 guests and on the last 2 nights 3 guests. In that case you need to make 2 different reservations, one for the first 2 nights for 2 guests and another reservation for the last 2 nights for 3 guests.
The big table broke. I replaced it by a foldable table of similar dimensions. I'll be posting photos of it soon.
Check for pics with updated curtains blocking daylight.
Disponible para huéspedes
Common areas are the bathroom, the hallway and the kitchen/dining room. Sometimes I use the latter (kitchen/dining room) as a small bedroom. In these cases its use is possible ONLY when I am not at home (VERY IMPORTANT). There is always access to the fridge and the microwave (they are located in the lobby).

I will be available to offer any help you need.

THIS INFORMATION NEEDS TO BE READ BY ALL GUESTS.
Do not flush toilet paper down the toilet. Use the garbage can for that purpose.
Do not lean or hold on to the soap holders in the bathtub. They are installed by pressure and can get loose or break.
Place the rubber mat on the edge of the bathtub (side up) after taking a shower to avoid the formation of mold. The regular cloth bath rug leave it on the edge of the bathtub as well (not on the floor).
You’ll find the room key in its lock. If I don’t tell you something different, leave it on the same place upon checkout.
If you run out of toilet paper and/or the wipes and I wouldn’t be neither at home and/or in the country there are more under the sink in the kitchen.
If you just rented this room (Hab 2), and the other room (Hab 1) happens to be empty/open, DO NOT GET INTO IT, LET ALONE TAKE ANY PIECE OF FURNITURE OUT OF IT OR ANY ITEM. It changes the description of the room which can already be ready or it might soon be ready for other guests.
In the bathroom, next to the front part of the bathtub, there’s a metal pole that has always has to be up. It is the old fashioned system of the building to block the drainage. Thus if it is lowered the water won’t go away. After taking a shower, please leave the window open so that the bathroom gets ventilated to avoid the formation of mold in the walls.
You can use the wipes and the disposable gloves on top of the toilet if you would like to give it a wipe before using it. Throw everything in the garbage bin. Do not flush down the toilet. The blue liquid on top of the toilet is a disinfectant. Place a wipe on top of it and press downwards so that it wets it.
You can use the left side of the medicine cabinet. The hair dryer can be found right there.
You can use the towel rails. When I am at home, I use the bottom one, behind the bathroom door.
There’s a chute (exiting the apartment and turning left) at the end of the hallway on the first door to the right, in case you need to throw some garbage away.
The Dan’s and Fine & Fare bags can be stored in two bag containers respectively that you’ll find in the kitchen to the right (on top of the garbage bin).
In NY recycling is mandatory. You’ll find 2 bags for that purpose in the kitchen. One is for glass/plastic and metal items (rinse the food and beverage containers before throwing them away). The other one is for paper.
Press the power button to turn the TV on (in case the cable box is already on). The System button turns the TV and the cable box at the same time. Use the CH and Vol buttons to change channels and adjust the volume. If there are guests in the other room, do not raise the volume beyond a quarter of its indicator (green lines), since beyond that level it might be heard in the other room.
If I happen not to be in the country, I would ask you to water the plants for
me so that they don’t dry up. Thanks.
The rules in the apartment are to KEEP A PEACEFUL AND QUIET ENVIRONMENT OVERALL, DO NOT SMOKE AND CLEAN AFTER YOURSELF IN THE COMMON AREAS. If you want to smoke you have to step out of the building. It is prohibited to smoke in the hallways and/or the staircases.
Neither soap nor shampoo is provided.
NO VISITORS ALLOWED.
I am 42 and I am from Cuba. I have been living in the States for 12 years. About 3 months in Miami and the rest in New York City. My purpose for coming to the city was to learn the language after finishing my studies of English Philology in Spain. I have lived also in Sweden (about 2 years) and as said Spain (9 years).
I love reading, listening to music, working out and going to the beach.
As a guest I am tidy, clean and love quietness.
Normally I study in the mornings online up till 11-1pm and at night I work in the service industry.
One thing I couldn't live without is dancing salsa. That's my favorite entertainment.
