Comfortable bedroom in a clean, quiet apt with sunlight, 10 foot ceilings, and a full-sized bed, off Broadway Ave in the heart of Astoria. This two bedroom apartment is 2 short blocks from N/Q trains. Coffee and tea incl.
The building, and the apartment, is a vintage, older construction --what they call "pre-war" in NYC but very well maintained and of classic style. The clean kitchen has a kind of a 50's feel to it, but with new appliances.
As a true, 2 bedroom, well-lit, clean, and open apartment, guests will have access to their own, private bedroom, sharing living room, kitchen and full bathroom with the host.

I work fairly long hours during the day, leaving for work about 9 am and often not returning until later at night. However, I do stay in the apartment and enjoy meeting and interacting with my guests to the extent they feel comfortable. As someone who enjoys traveling, meeting and getting to know people from all over the world fulfills my desires to travel during the times when I can't get away from the city.
A breakfast bar of tea and coffee is available for guests. There is also wireless internet access provided free to guests.
House rules and reminders are posted in the apartment. Please clean up and avoid spills or food left in rooms. Wash dishes immediately after using them. Clean shower drain of hair after using to prevent the pre-war pipes from clogging up.
Please remove shoes upon entering apartment.
I do allow guests to invite friends over to visit, but I have a maximum of two people sleeping the night. Also no parties or loud music is permitted because the 90-year-old building owner and his wife live right below my apartment and are appreciative of peace and quiet at night.
Pets are not permitted.
Make sure you leave the keys upon checking out.

Although from Zimbabwe, I have been living, studying and working in New York for the past 5 years. I am passionate about effecting positive social transformation and as a lover of learning and this passion manifests in my daily life as a policy researcher at the United Nations and as a PhD student.
I enjoy living in Astoria and can happily recommend bars, restaurants etc. in the neighbourhood as well as in Manhattan which is only a few minutes away by subway. I am happy to talk to and get to know my guests if they wish but there is no pressure to socialize if all you need is a place to sleep at the end of a long day of adventuring or working.
I look forward to welcoming you into my home!
