PANDEMIC CONSIDERATION:

.
Other things to consider:
-We have children! Please be OK with the pitter patter of feet, noise between 8 am-10 pm, occasional crying.
-We Foster kittens and adult cats! Please be OK with animals.

CANCELLATION POLICY:
I have a flexible cancellation policy. Air Bnb does not require me to be flexible, I do it as a courtesy to my guest. You can cancel for a full refund with 24 or more hours notice. This means that if you cancel 20 hours before, you will not get a refund. If you cancel the same day, you will not get a refund. If you don’t show up on the first day, it will already be less than 24 hours from the second day, so you will not be refunded for the second day either. If you reserved the room, it means that another paying customer could not, and it is your responsibility.

Location

The Bronx, New York, United States

PLEASE READ ABOUT THE LOCATION, AND ASK QUESTIONS. it is incredibly unfair when guests choose to stay here, and take advantage of our low prices, because we are a little off the beaten path-and then they give us bad reviews for location.

We are on E. 237th St in the Bronx, between White Plains Road and Richardson Ave.

We are 1.5 blocks from Nereid station on the 2/5 subway line. The MTA has a trip planner feature on their website that allows you to enter your place of origin and your destination, and then it will give you routes/travel times/prices.

The web site will also alert you to route and schedule changes due to construction or other delays. If you need to get to the heart of Manhattan quickly, take an 8-10 minute walk down to the Woodlawn Metro North Station, and it will have you to Grand Central in 20 minutes.

Wonderful tree-lined residential neighborhood, with easy street parking. I raised 3 daughters here. A bustling , family friendly area.

Lively, friendly, diverse neighborhood with lots of shopping and restaurants. Spanish, Guyanese, Jamaican, Chinese, and fast food all a quick stroll-or delivery call-away.

Residental streets feed into White Plains Road which is the main thoroughfare, or the Broadway of the Bronx, if you will. Unlike other parts of the city, we have free, unregulated parking on our side streets.

A block away is a well-stocked supermarket, as well as multiple produce markets, fish markets, beauty and nail salons. Also an eclectic variety of retail shops, where you will find great deals both domestic and international.

3 miles from the major Deegan highway, 3 miles from interstate 95, 1 mile from the Bronx River Parkway. Walking distance to Montefiore medical center’s Wakefield campus. Easy commute to the Bronx Zoo, Fordham University, and the Botanical Gardens.

Please note: we are 1.5 blocks from the elevated train station which is very convenient however, some do find it challenging to adjust to the sound of the train. We provide ear plugs, and suggest a noise cancellation app for your phone. Please do not choose to stay here, and then complain about the train. It’s not fair.

I have cats! If you have a problem with cats, please stay somewhere else. Children live here! We expect them to be as quiet as possible between the hours of 10 PM-8 AM, and we expect the same from you. If you want a Hilton experience, you should stay at the Hilton. I am a mom who raised a beautiful family in this big old house. It may not seem fancy to you, but we have worked hard to maintain it, and we are proud of it! It may not be the newest or the shiniest, but it is home. This is a busy Airbnb, I pride myself on being at 100% capacity 100% of the time. I offer BUDGET prices for the APPRECIATIVE, INDEPENDENT Guest. ALL GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO DO UNATTENDED SELF CHECK IN. If you cannot follow house rules, or read instructions, you should not stay here! You will be staying in a room where one of my children grew up. A lot of thought and love has gone into decorating the space, and anticipating any needs you might have. I aim to create a personal experience for you, and my special needs daughter Cici and I clean and organize everything in between guests. In exchange, we have set everything up so that it is self-explanatory, and we appreciate your independence. We are a family of introverts. We are pleasant and kind, but we respect your privacy and tend to keep to ourselves. I am very active in my church, but I fully respect the beliefs of others, and think that the most important universal language is love. If you have a problem with people of other backgrounds, whether it be ethnicity, religious preferences, sexuality or anything else, I would encourage you to stay elsewhere. Let’s all respect one another.

During your stay
Please be independent. This is a very popular Airbnb home. Our rooms are full 100% of the time. We cater to single travelers in the area for business, local people who are in between apartments, and the occasional tourist.
I price the rooms in the low to competitive range, and the ideal guest appreciates the value.
I DO NOT OFFER PERSONAL CHECK IN SERVICES. Every guest is REQUIRED to follow the self check-in protocol in your itinerary. There is not necessarily anyone to greet you personally when you arrive, however I am always reachable through Airbnb messaging. There are lots of little helpful notes throughout the house to help you find your way, as well as a house manual in your room.
I will gladly exchange pleasantries with you anytime that we encounter each other in the common areas, but you help to keep costs low for all guests by being independent.
