Property description

I have been renting this condo for years (which can be verified at the bottom of this page). As the overwhelming majority of my reviews reveal, I do my best to help my guests' make their experience be a postiive one.

In order to ensure the protection of both parties, I do not accept any reservations that are requested within 14 days of arrival. The credit card used to book a reservation will be verified with matching government photo i.d. upon arrival at my property. This well appointed 2 story, 2 bedroom furnished New York Loft-style apartment, plus a 3rd unique 'cave' like Harry Potter-style double bedroom with its own TV, PS3, window, lighting, and closet (perfect for children or children at heart). There is also a retro fold down sofa bed perfect for 1 adult or two children located in the living room.

There are 2 full bathrooms with heated floors in each.

The condo had recently gone through a major renovation. It includes a new kitchen, new bathrooms, new bedrooms...everything has been upgraded, replaced, or redone.

- 10 foot high ceilings
- authentic exposed 1871 brick walls
- hardwood floors
- 42” LED HDTV, plus another flat screen SMALL HDTV in the bunk bedroom and another in the unique cave-like 3rd bedroom and all three have 290 digital and HD cable channels. Each TV also has free SHOMI (a version of NETFLIX)

- newly built kitchen with large stainless steel fridge with water/ice on the door, commercial stainless steel dishwasher, laser-cut double deep stainless steel sink, oversized peninsula that seats 8 people comfortably. There is lots of cupboard space and they are stocked with spices, dried goods, oils, vinegars, etc. that you need to create meals

- expansive 6 foot high windows

- well laid out floor plan; very private between the bedrooms
- 1 queen-size bed, in second "bunk" bedroom there are 2 bunk beds (single over double & a single over single), and in the 'Harry Potter" room there is a 1 single bed (it is a cozy, cave-like room perfect for children or children at heart), and 1 fold-down sofa in the living room for 1 adult or 2 children in the living room
- duvets and comfy blankets

- facecloths, hand towels and bath towels

Fully-equipped, well stocked kitchen:
- stainless steel pots and pans
- full dinnerware sets
- abundance of cooking utensils, cutlery and glassware
- coffeemaker
- selection of dried goods, spices, rices, grains, baking needs, teas, coffee, etc., are complimentary during your stay

A full-size in-suite washer and dryer for your convenience including laundry soap, stain remover and dryer sheets..

Parking is available 1/2 block (30 second walk) from the condo and is $10 per 24 hours with in/out privileges. No reservation required.

Pets and Smoking
- this is a non-smoking, pet-free suite though you can smoke outside. Pets, though I love them, are not able to stay at the condo.

  • Queen size bed in master suite. Second bedroom has 1 single bunk bed and 1 single/double bunk bed (called the 'bunk bedroom'). The third sleeping space is a single bed in the "Harry Potter" room (see description below). There is also a fold down sofa in the living room (suitable for 1 adult or 2 children). The home sleeps 9 people in total. Though there are 3 bedrooms I do not classify the third bedroom as a bedroom, It has its own door, pot lights in its ceiling, a window, heating, a closet, HDTV with over 290 channels and a single bed. The reason I do not consider it a third bedroom is because it is less than 5 feet high. This is perfect for children (and children at heart! ) and young adults. This "bedroom" is extremely popular, and people fight over staying in it, but I thought it would be unfair to not disclose the height restriction. It has been labeled by past guests as the "Harry Potter" room....moreless
