This large room above New York Harbor is a short walk to the free Staten Island Ferry, for an easy commute to Manhattan! This is a private room with a full bath inside the room and it includes refrigerator, microwave, TV, wi-fi and free parking. Towels, shampoo, soap and breakfast items like cereal and fruit are provided.
This large space is completely private and is walking distance to the free ferry to Manhattan. If you have a car, you can park in front of our house or in our driveway (which is not the case in most areas of the other boroughs).
The queen-size bed has a comfortable medium/firm mattress with cotton sheets. An additional twin-size bed can be set up for a third person if guests are staying three or more nights. Playard/crib is available for a young child. Internet access is included and the space has its own table and chairs, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator and cable TV/DVD. Tea, coffee, juice, spring water and breakfast items such as cereal, fruit and toast and jam are included.

Atención a los huéspedes
We love to talk about things to do and see in New York. You can have as much or as little interaction with us as you like. Elle will be available on the other levels of the house during your stay. We do have one cat who is not allowed into the guest room of the house.
Otros aspectos destacables
Check-in time is typically 2:00 pm if there is another guest who is leaving on the day you arrive (check-out time is 11:00 am). If you get to NYC sooner due to an early airplane arrival, you can arrange for me to store your luggage here while you go out and enjoy Staten Island or take the ferry to Manhattan. Once the previous guest leaves, the room has been cleaned, and the room is ready for you, I will put your luggage in the room. Normally, this will be about 2-3 hours after the previous guest leaves (my cleaning is extremely thorough). If there is no previous guest leaving on the day you arrive, your arrival time can be earlier (but please avoid arriving between midnight and 8am). Please check with me by email about arrival times.
Prices for reservations of 7 nights or more and 28 nights or more are discounted as shown.
No smoking please. Please do not wash laundry in the bathroom sink or bathtub. There is a laundry mat 2 blocks away, and in addition, I provide a laundry service (wash, dry, fold) for $6 per load, just ask!
We like to travel when we can; we enjoy playing music together, and perform within our local acoustic music scene. We have one adult daughter. Rob is an academic office administrator, and Elle is a retired professor and artist. We are mostly vegetarian, and try to be "green." We enjoy reading, cultural activities, films, and good conversation. We enjoy talking about New York City and between us, we have lived in all the boroughs except for the Bronx!
