Atención a los huéspedes
Guest space is private. Host lives full time on lower floors; I'm usually present and available in case needs arise, and always available via phone / email.
Technically it is not a separate totally private home, but it functions like one. There are no shared rooms / facilities other than the entryway.
Otros aspectos destacables
All guest rooms are up one and two flights of stairs; these rooms are not handicapped accessible. If traveling with small kids, you'd want to supervise toddlers around the stairwells.
The bedroom has one queen sized bed for a 'normal' hosting capacity of two. The living room has one pull out queen sized sofabed to host two more. Then to sleep up to six, we can bring up two additional twin-sized mattresses on light frames and put them in any of the three rooms. These mattresses can also go directly on the ground if parents are afraid of a child rolling out of bed. Note I do not have any cribs or high chairs.
Make requests for favorite foods or beverages, and we'll do our best to stock the fridge for you before arrival!
Enjoy fast wireless internet and your own DVR with basic cable.
In the unlikely event of a fire or other emergency, the top floors have their own separate fire escape route.
There are laundry machines in the basement; these can be available for longer-term guests. I supply plenty of towels and washcloths; no need to pack your own.
Note that I own this building and I live here as well. Your stay will be safe and legal; I am pleased to be in compliance with New York's 2010 Illegal Hotel Law, which targets landlords illegally renting apartments as hotel rooms in "Class A" dwellings. Additionally, the October 2016 amendments to the state Multiple Dwelling Law and the New York City Administrative Code do not apply to this rental, as it is a "Class B3-2" building.
NOTE: I am planning a renovation project in the front of the house from July through October, 2017. The front of the house will likely have scaffolding and some construction noise, strictly from 9am to 5pm. The main bedroom is in the rear of the house, opposite to the construction. Construction workers will not be intruding the AirBnB space.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: How much does this cost? How does this work?
A: Ah, you must be new to AirBnB. The AirBnB site itself should calculate that for you based on your own currency, length of stay, etc. You pay them up front directly when you finalize your reservation.
Q: Is there a parking spot available?
A: There is no dedicated parking spot. There is free parking on the street, and sometimes it can be difficult to quickly find a spot. Alternate-side-of-the-street parking rules are in effect, as well, which can be confusing. If you are visiting New York to see its most popular sites, just don't bring a car, period. Getting around via public transportation and taxis and car services is quite easy.
Q: How private are the sleeping quarters?
A: The full bedroom with queen bed has full privacy. The living room is up the stairs and is directly attached to the separate full kitchen and dining room. Some guests have moved mattresses around to be close/far from each other as desired. (For example: a small child wanting to sleep in the same room with their parents.) The AirBnB living spaces are entirely separate from mine; we won't be living on top of each other at all.
Q: How late at night can I check in?
A: As late as you want. I will send you a numerical combination which you can use at any time to let yourself in; you won't need a physical key. You won't disturb me if you roll in at 3am; my living space is quite separate.
No smoking at all. No pets.

I'm a New Yorker -- lived in Manhattan fifteen years, and now five in Park Slope. I'm getting started as an AirBnB host, and I'm looking forward to helping people get the most out of the city!
