The space

Hi, we have a very nice spare room downstairs, on a separate floor from the rest of the apartment. We have friends (and friends of friends) staying all the time, and we like having people to stay, so we decided to give Airbnb a try.

We live 3 blocks from Central Park in the very nice Morningside Heights / Upper West Side neighborhood. Also near Riverside Park and Columbia Uni, with lots of nice cafes etc. In the park there's a free pool in the summer, ice skating rink in winter.... loads of shopping on the upper west side and all the museums are just a walk across the park. We're 2 mins from the 1 train, and Times Square is about a 10 min train ride away;

We are a family of 4 (mixed UK and USA nationalities). Kids are 1 yr and 4 yrs. We're sociable people with full time jobs. Totally happy for guests to do their own thing, but always up for a chat. Alex enjoys telling people about sights and activities around the city. Our nanny Carmen is often around if we are not.

The room is on the basement floor - it's reached by a spiral staircase going down from the living room. There are two comfortable single beds (can be put together with a mattress pad on top to make a double), wifi internet access, cat. There is a private toilet and sink en suite to the room, although the (small) shower/bathroom and (large) kitchen are upstairs and shared. There's also a washing machine and dryer.

We'd generally prefer to host women or couples (of any gender combination). There'd be plenty of room for a child too, we have an air mattress we could blow up. We have a travel cot too, if needed.

I guess we are still working this out as we go (Website hidden by Airbnb) not sure what else to write, but let me know if you have any questions!

We had a great time in New York. Jo and the kids were away, but Alex and Misha (the cat) were great hosts. Misha is very friendly and even slept with me one night! Alex gave us some great recommendations on some of the nearby sites. The room is large, has a nice little tab…

Very nice basement level room with two comfortable twin beds, half bath. Everything was clean and pleasant. I also really enjoyed meeting the hosts Alex and Jo. Only caveat is that the staircase down to the basement is narrow and spiral. Location is great!

My aunt and I stayed at this location for a few days in November 2012. The location was very convenient, just a couple blocks from the subway, with restaurants, delis and proximity to the park, museums, etc. The room was spacious and very convenient for us with 2 full beds. We fe…

My brother and I stayed with Jo and Alex and their two children for 10 days in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was our first experience with airbnb and we were a little nervous, but we couldn't have wished for better hosts. The first thing they asked us was to feel a…

My sister and me stayed at Jo´s for 2 nights and I can definitely recommend her. The room was big and clean. The beds were big and comfortable. She gave us an extra bed for my sister´s baby. We had enough privacy, but we also had a little talk with her and her Nanny. We felt ver…
