Welcome to Sarah's Place!
This space offers you your own private room within my 1 bedroom apartment. The guest room has a Queen size bed. My apartment is on the 4th floor of a walk-up building (This is New York lingo for *no elevator*) . Located in the residential neighborhood of Inwood, which is situated in the north end of Uptown Manhattan, this apartment is a few blocks from both the 1 and A trains, which take you to Times Square in 35 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE LOCATION BEFORE BOOKING.
*This listing is for female guests only*
Only a 3 minute walk from both the 1 and A subway/metro train stations, This is a perfect quiet spot to come to at the end of a hectic day in the city. The space offers you your own private room within my 1 bedroom apartment - linens and towels provided. The room has a Queen size bed, 2 windows with great natural light, armoire & closet space, and Wi-Fi. Shampoo & Conditioner, Body soap, and hair dryer available in the bathroom. There is fridge & pantry space with a fully functioning kitchen. Building has laundry machines & dryers in the basement. *** I stay in a sectioned off living room area so the apartment is basically 2 bedrooms with a communal kitchen and bathroom.
The bedroom windows faces the inner courtyard between two buildings, so it is quieter that a street-facing apartment - unless there's a party in a nearby apartment! You may also be able to hear the soft rumble of the above ground 1 train nearby.
The decorations are inspired by my travels around the world and also gifts from my international friends. Please note that my space is reserved on a first come-first served basis (I cannot reserve dates for anyone until a reservation has been finalized) . My listing's calendar is always up to date.
Accès des voyageurs
I live in a newly renovated 4th floor pre-war apartment building- not one of New York City’s luxury buildings. That means there is no elevator or doorman. Due to a hip injury I am not able to help you bring luggage up the stairs so please only book this space if you are traveling light and/or are able and willing carry all your belongings to the 4th floor.
I’ve limited the maximum number to 2 adult female guests for the comfort level of potential guests as well as myself. I love children, however my home is not child-proof. I’m laid back, but I work most of the time, so not around much and sleeping at nights.
