My little one bedroom is classic New York. Small and un-renovated but charming, in a great location within easy walking distance to Rockefeller Center, Central Park, MOMA. Right on the NYC marathon route if you are in town for that. Lots of shops and restaurants all around, including on my street. Nothing fancy, but great for single folks or couples looking for a base of operations near the center of it all.

The space

My apartment has got some unique charm, with lots of old New York details. It is on the fourth floor of an old walk-up building, so if you are looking for a doorman, an elevator, or any kind of luxury, look elsewhere. However, if you want a safe, quiet, and very convenient place at a good price, I have it.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole apartment.

Interaction with guests

I can provide you lots of advice but I will not be here if you are here. I am not renting a room but my whole apt. I can mail you the keys or leave them at the deli on the corner where I know the guys.

Other things to note

This is not a business for me. Instead, I rent my place out when I go away. So, I will not be in NYC. Sometimes I will be reachable by email, sometimes not.

Sean's place is a great value for the location. He wasn't able to be there for check-in, but sent very detailed instructions which were easy to follow. The place is in a great location, but don't expect anything fancy. Like some people have mentioned, the shower is a little off-putting since it's basically in the kitchen. But other than that, the living room and bedroom are very comfortable.

Easily accessible and affordable stay in Manhattan. All the basic necessities you need, however make sure you're up to climb 4 flights of stairs. Very good location to walk to Central Park with plenty of good food/drink nearby.

Dive into the real life of New Yorkers ! Sean's place is exactly as described, atypical, vintage and cosy. The bed is super extra comfortable ! The bath tub is indeed located in the kitchen but it has a real charm to it and... who does not like to take a bath every day ? It's quite easy to use it so don't fret. The place was also very warm, which was nice after a long day walking outside under freezing temperature (bless Winter). Sean was very nice to leave us some coffee and all was provided in the apartment. It's a very charming place, and well located just near Central Park, a subway station, the UN, and an amazing little coffee and bagel shop nearby. As a couple, we really enjoyed staying in this unusual place and we really felt we belonged in this amazing city !

Sean's place is awesome. Quintessential cozy, pre-war, NYC apartment. It's close to the trains, close to Central Park and has a super comfortable bed. I hope it is available for my future visits!

The appartement is nice and well located. The bathroom is a little peculiar but the rest of the place is comfortable and we felt at home. It is quiet too. Sean was very helpful and responsive to our questions and needs. Getting and leaving the keys was also easy.

Sean's apartment is just as described, a creatively and interestingly equipped small, typical Manhattan apartment with a lot of character. The bath tub in the kitchen area is quite funky! Not the easiest of tasks to avoid water from touching the wall but no problem altogether. It was extremely hot and humid during my time in NYC, but the apartment remained quite cool even without AC. Sean was a fantastic host although I didn't meet up with him. He corresponded immediately, and left a very detailed and kind note with hints and instructions. All in all a very pleasant stay!
