COVID-19 UPDATE:
During these crazy times, if you are interested in the full apartment (this room and the other, larger guest room--if both are not yet booked for your dates), please reach out to me to discuss.
——————————

This is the SMALLER of TWO guest rooms in this apartment. Your bedroom will be private, but YOU WILL BE SHARING THE COMMON AREAS of the apartment if the other, larger guest room is booked for the same time period. Please read below FIRST for full details.

=====================
PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST (via the "Contact Host" button below the photo of me; do not submit a booking request) with:
1. any questions,
2. the dates of your visit, and
3. your approximate arrival time BEFORE making an actual booking request (via the "Request to Book" button).

Please complete the OFFICIAL AIRBNB VERIFICATION PROCESS at -- www.airbnb.com/verify -- BEFORE CONTACTING ME. I need to see the official GREEN ICON WITH CHECKMARK on your COMPLETED PROFILE before I will consider your inquiry.

If you make a booking request before contacting me and then getting a response with an invitation to submit a booking request, I regret that I will have to decline your booking request.

My guest room is in an excellent location, a great value and an extremely popular booking--all of which you can see in my glowing reviews. Sometimes my calendar may show dates available, but I may actually be holding those dates for someone who has already contacted me first. In fairness, I always accept booking requests for the same dates in the order received.

Also--and THIS IS IMPORTANT--I will never extend an invitation to make a booking request to anyone who doesn't have his or her profile completed with:

1) a clear personal photo (of yourself--not of the mountains or your dog or flowers or...);

2) COMPLETED Airbnb verification--the OFFICIAL AIRBNB VERIFICATION PROCESS in the form of identification, verified phone number, email address, etc.: https://www.airbnb.com/verify; and,

3) some personal information so that I have an idea of whom I might be inviting into my home.

Please make sure of this BEFORE contacting me.

One final note--because I have had a couple of recent bookings where the guests informed me of a late-night arrival AFTER booking the room--I generally cannot accommodate late-night arrivals in this apartment. If your flight, bus, train or other mode of transportation will have you arriving at night (especially international flights arriving in the late evening) and arriving at the apartment at a late hour, I apologize in advance, but I will not be able to accommodate a late check-in.
=====================

I'm offering a very small but cozy, private room in my apartment in the East Village. (Also see my other listing for the larger guest room in this apartment: "Great Room in Lively East Village".) The guest room is comfortably furnished with a beautiful single bed from West Elm with a relaxing, restful, plush euro pillowtop mattress--not some cheap, hard mattress with springs poking you in the back all night and barely any cushioning! Additionally, there's an armoire/wardrobe in the room if you'd like to fully unpack your suitcase and get comfortable.

Fresh, quality bed linens and towels are provided for your stay, as is WiFi. Additionally, there is an iron and hair dryer available for shared use. In the kitchen you'll find a delicious selection of mostly organic teas for your enjoyment. You are absolutely welcome to make use of the kitchen to prepare any meals, if you wish, and you are invited to get comfortable in the living room area and read a book or watch television. In the bedroom you will find a power strip that has four USB ports to charge your electronics and two electrical outlets with international adapters built in to accommodate most all various worldwide electrical plugs. Who's got you covered? I do!

My apartment is a fairly typical NYC flat--not huge but very welcoming, warm, safe and clean (earth-friendly, cruelty-free products are used). Typical smaller, older, downtown apartment buildings like this one don't have an elevator/lift--but this one does (as of a couple of years ago!) to make transporting your luggage upstairs easy or if you have problems with stairs.

Your host--that would be me--is a genuinely kind, friendly, former Midwesterner who wants to make sure your visit to this fabulous city is wonderful (I hope you love it as much as I do!) and that your stay in my home is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. In short, while you are visiting, my home is your home.

Please notice that I'm not just a host--I'm a Superhost. That means that I've earned the Superhost badge from Airbnb (added by Airbnb to my profile) and go above and beyond Airbnb's standards of quality that is required from hosts, doing what I can to ensure your stay is more-than-comfortable and helping to make it a 5-star experience.

Situated on East 10th Street, the location is convenient to all that this city has to offer. The L train is a less-than-5-minute walk away, and Tompkins Square Park is right around the corner. Within a short walking distance is Union Square, Greenwich Village, the Lower East Side, Chinatown, SoHo, Washington Square Park and more! Subway trains that are very close include the L, 4, 5, 6, F, N, R, Q, all of which will connect you wherever you want to go in a snap!

For your convenience, the neighborhood offers plenty of restaurants (including vegetarian/vegan, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, pizza, falafels, diners and much more), grocery stores (including Whole Foods and Trader Joe's), farmer's markets, coffee shops, 24-hour delis and pharmacies, off-Broadway theatres, cinemas, nightlife options and more.

Guest access
This is the smaller of TWO guest rooms in this apartment. Your bedroom will be private, but YOU WILL BE SHARING THE COMMON AREAS of the apartment--bathroom, kitchen and living room areas.

Other things to note
1. The room itself is very small and is approximately 6.5'x8.25' (about 53.5 sq. feet/5 sq. meters), and there are two guest rooms in the apartment.

2. Your bedroom is private, but YOU WILL BE SHARING THE COMMON AREAS of the apartment (bathroom, kitchen and living room) if I have guests in the other guest room for the same time period. If this is an issue for you, then do not book this room.

3. If I am not traveling, then I personally tidy up my place every day or every other one to clean the common areas and to make sure things are stocked (teas, hand soap, paper towels, toilet tissue, etc.) and garbage and recyclables are removed. I do ask that you help me keep the place clean by picking up after yourself and disposing of trash and recyclables in their proper places.

The place is super-convenient as noted above, has an awesome host (if I may say so myself) and is a great value.

I enjoy meeting different people, and I look forward to welcoming you as a guest into my home.

I'm a New Yorker by way of the Midwest who is as madly in love with NYC as the first time I visited--actually, probably even more. I enjoy travel (though I don't get to do it as much as I'd like), photography, meeting new people and continually exploring this great city. I am a genuinely friendly and caring person with a creative and nurturing spirit. In my day job, I am a web content manager/producer, but I am actively trying to open a vegan bakery franchise here in NYC. If I could earn a living by traveling the world and doing photography, I would be a very happy camper! NOTE TO POTENTIAL GUESTS: You must CONTACT ME FIRST instead of submitting a booking request. Please read the full room description for information about this request and for thorough details about the room.
