We've been both Airbnb hosts + users. We've recently moved into our new home + new neighborhood--Bushwick--which we love! We both work at museums + are considerate hosts. This room is perfect for visiting researchers, professionals + young families.
The room has a full double bed, drawers and a closet for storage, and central air and heat for perfect temperature. The room has its own adjacent bathroom that is for the use of guests only. There is a spacious outdoor deck area which, when winter is gone, is lovely to eat out on or have an evening glass of wine on. The house is less than a year old, so everything is in perfect working order, clean, and calm. We have a small cot we can put up for young children (it is good for 5 and under) or a larger cot for older children (10 and under). We do not charge for children under ten, and although we don't yet have kids of our own we love hosting young families!
Guests have access to their bedroom and adjacent bathroom, as well as our kitchen for coffee/tea and breakfast items. Guests are welcome to relax in the calm and comfortable living room.
Interaction with guests
We have been both Airbnb hosts and users, and so know how to welcome people warmly, and then give you your own space to enjoy your stay in NYC. We are at work during the day and so guests will have the house to themselves during work hours Mon-Fri--although our adorable Siamese cat Harry will be in residence full-time, so you'll need to be non-allergic and cat friendly to stay here (thought don't worry--Harry takes care of himself and will leave you be!).
Other things to note
Also, you may also want to know that we automatically donate 3% from all our bookings to NYC non-profit Breaking Ground. Breaking Ground's mission is to strengthen individuals, families and communities by developing and sustaining exceptional supportive and affordable housing as well as programs for homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers. Find out more about the good work they do by Googling "Breaking Ground NYC."
Also, we've said it in several places, but we want to make clear to potential guests who suffer allergies that we have a cat! Our house is super clean, but for those of you who are very sensitive, you need to know this detail! :)
We are quiet, clean, respectful, and professional. We love the city and our neighborhood, and giving our guests space to enjoy their stay and explore. We are open to guests who are in the same spirit as this.
