The SpaceWONT LAST!
Great location- walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the train station. In the heart of all major highways, and is as close to living in Manhattan as one can get without spending a fortune or living in a tin can!
Fleetwood is a safe area, one of the last 'Italian neighborhoods' left in the area. (Walking distance to some of the best Pizza in New York!)
Freshly painted and cleaned, fully functional and stocked kitchen, two full bathrooms, large closets, and bright large windows.
Master bedroom has a beautiful balcony with a large patio.
The apartment is beautifully furnished but as an extra bonus, we have a storage unit, and can cater to our monthly guests for their specific needs; (example, if you have a family with small children, when you arrive, the second bedroom will be furnished and decorated for kids. Or if you are a group of friends in college looking to move off campus, we will arrange as many beds as you need, and maybe even a beerbong table ;) at no additional cost to you.
The space is totally private and well designed to contain sound.
There are additionally accommodations which may be discussed, including use the laundry facilities (coin operated), shared in the basement (but another private entrance), a parking space, and much more.
You also can opt to indulge in "in house spa services" by your hostess, room service, or just a cappuccino or espresso. (I live on the 1st floor)
This space can be anything you want it to be; a simple quiet place to call home while you close on your mortgage, a spacious retreat, or just a change of scenery. Guest AccessThere is a laundry room on premises with coin operated machines, but at the moment we have been having issues with the washing machine.. For this reason- please don't 'bank' on use of these facilities.
The area is under construction at the moment, and is not accessible without special permission.
There are several laundry mats within walking distance, or contact your hostess Jennifer if you are interested in having it done for you. (Which would be an additional cost naturally). Interaction with Guests"Don't just stay there, live there"!!
Unlike other listings that claim to provide the entire house (meanwhile you have 'access to the whole house' but only really get to rent a room in someone else's home) here, you get to get the feeling of what it is like to be a real New Yorker, with (presumably) your first very own New York apartment;
Our listing is unique in that we essentially hand you over the keys to your very own- totally exclusive and private apartment!
The only difference is, unlike any apartment you've had in the past, this is hassle free! No security deposit to lose (landlords in New York at least have seemed to master the art of keeping security deposits for no good reason). No realtor fees, bills to pay (I take care of the electric, heat, hot water, gas, cable, Internet, etc.),
You get to skip the trouble and hassle involved with buying and moving (furniture, pots, pans, silverware, plates, beds, mattresses, blankets, sheets, pillows, towels, cleaning materials, decorations (I could go on and on ;)
So this is no bed and breakfast, nor is it a hotel; it's a unique concept as a "3rd option" that I recognized the need for when I moved to Orlando for a couple months on a work assignment; I spent a FORTUNE buying everything that I needed, most of which costed MORE than I paid for it to ship back up to New York (which I stubbornly did, as I hate to perpetuate the cycle of waste that has become the norm of the way our society lives in this day and age; a mentality where everything is disposable, and quickly obsolete) (I was raised by two hippies; a marine biologist and a librarian; go figure! Haha)
So with that being said, I like to give my guests TOTAL privacy, and try to treat them as tenants more than guests.
(In a good way of course haha. For example, I don't even feel comfortable entering your apartment without your consent/presence.)
I mention this, so we can align our expectations ;)
If you are a short term guests (in New York on vacation for example) and you would like a more 'involved' experience in terms of my presence/service, then please communicate this to me and I will be happy to oblige!
*This could potentially mean more costs for you (say if you would like me to purchase something extra to make your stay more comfortable, or would like to order 'room service' and enjoy some of my home made cooking (I live on the bottom floor of this house).
Maybe you would like me to babysit the kids so mom and dad can have a night to themselves ;)
Maybe you would like a tutor to help your child keep their brain sharp during a break from school, or maybe learn a new subject! (Just graduated one of NY's top business schools Magna cum laude a few weeks ago)
I'm open to anything I can do to help- even if you'd just like me to walk your dog a few times a day.
I'm an entrepreneur, I love helping people and I'm very open minded. I welcome to all ideas and above all else I love to please my guests!
In the absence of any indication that you would like a 'more involved experience', after I check you in, I give you total privacy and assume you would like to be left alone.
Please feel free to message me with any questions! The NeighborhoodFleetwood is an amazing neighborhood; safe, yet boisterous and full of life. It's people embody the 'je né sais quoi" that is the famous New York charm, that has gives New Yorkers our reputation. Getting Around**a new possible option; you can rent my 3 series BMW (see pictures) during your stay to get around.
Message me if you are interested in this very exclusive option. (Reasonably priced and affordable.. Not on the table for everyone.. Will be discussed and decided on a case by case basis)
The apartment is 6 blocks away from the fleetwood train station, and is in walking distance. From the fleetwood train station, it takes less than 20 minutes to get into Manhattan, making it actually closer to grand central station than some parts of the city!
The location is one of the best commodities which makes this apartment desirable; it is close to every major highway, and the town of fleetwood borders mount Vernon which then borders the Bronx.
Fleetwood is well known for being the safest neighborhoods outside the city, and has the perfect balance of price to space; the next best area (in terms of being a safe community) is several times the price; for a small fraction of its size. An apartment this size in Manhattan would cost several million dollars (in a neighborhood with an equivalent lo crime rate).
We DO accept pets, (which in NY is extremely hard to find) so all and all, this location is a home run!
Side note; New York City is currently facing a new piece of legislation which, if it is signed into law (as it expected to in the very future) the vast majority of listings seen on Airbnb in NYC may be taken DOWN and out of commission; **REST ASSURED**even if this happens, my listings (are one of the few in the metropolitan area) that meet the criteria for the new proposed restrictions, and MY LISTINGS WILL REMAIN UNAFFECTED! ;)
A word of friendly advice while booking on Airbnb in NYC area in the upcoming months; keep an eye on the progression of this situation, to avoid booking a nonrefundable flight to NYC with plans to stay somewhere that may shutdown- to no fault of their own.
(I'm not a lawyer, or an expert on the topic, but I'm just sharing my understanding of the current situation, and I think everyone should be aware of this, and keep an eye on its development when considering traveling to the New York area) Other Things to NoteExtras; the kitchen is fully stocked up with pots, pans, glasses, silverware and even a Starbucks coffee machine! (Pods not included at the moment)
In addition to being super comfy and cozy, the couch opens up to be a full (or queen? Not sure) pull out mattress for extra guests!
I also have a blow up queen, and twin mattress, so this unit can comfortably sleep 10 people!
The master bedroom features a vey chic modern (queen) white leather platform bed, a spacious terrace, and a walk in closet, and the other room features an amazing tempurpedic memory foam (queen sized) mattress (this room also has a large closet.
Supersize me; for large groups of people (or just for additional space/privacy), check out my other listing to see the in law-suite which can be booked together at a discount!
I've hosted families before who opted to book the in-law suite (studio directly above this unit) for the kids to sleep in (and do their own thing) giving mom and dad some privacy on their vacation ;-)
This is an option that is exclusively offered to Airbnb guests with 5 stars on a case by case basis, and availability is extremely limited. If this is something you are interested in, i recommended booking in advance. Message me if you would like to be considered.
