(Note to Potential Guests: As I'll be away for Christmas, I'm looking for guests who can check in the first week of December. I'll have to decline inquiries for other dates in December. Thank you for your understanding)

Hi! I'd like to welcome you to my cozy and comfortable private bedroom in a shared apartment. I am located in Washington Heights and an 8-minute walk away from the A, C, & 1 trains, and blocks from the Columbia University Medical Center.

The space

The space is a perfect size for a solo traveller or a couple that want to get away from the prices and noise of downtown Manhattan. It is tucked away right across from scenic views of Highbridge park and the Harlem river.
The space has a queen bed, shared bathroom, closet space, a desk and chairs, and shelf space. The room has two windows. (Air conditioning is available from June until mid-September)

Guest access

Guests can use the kitchen/eating area and it's amenities.

Interaction with guests

I am in and out of the apartment throughout the day and use the space to relax and unwind, and I sometimes work at home. I do my best to keep a warm, quiet, and relaxing environment for myself and my guests. I am available for any questions or concerns about your stay.

Other things to note

The space is located in a safe neighborhood right next to a daycare on one side and a school on the other.

Nile was accommodating and friendly. He gives detailed instructions for all of my questions and made sure I feel comfortable during my stay. However, I did not read the amenities description carefully and did not know that the room doesn't have an A/C. It was difficult for me to fall asleep in the hot summer weather without an A/C. Other than that, the place is clean, cozy, and looks exactly as pictured. Also, Nile is very particular about keeping the place clean and has many other house rules that are not on the website, such as cleaning the bathroom sink with a towel after use, keeping the bathroom door open when you leave, making sure the bathroom wall is dry after showering. I appreciate that he keeps the place clean, but sometimes I find it a bit too much. My boyfriend forgot his boxer shorts in the bathroom once after he showered in the morning, and when we got back to the apartment at night, he found his shorts in the trash. I'm not sure if Nile or someone else threw them in there, but we were not very happy about that.

Nile User Profile

Nile is a professional dancer who has been living in New York City for a little over 7 years. I've seen and done a lot in this city and would love to help recommend things to see and do to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Nile enjoys a quiet, comfy place to curl up in and call home, food (particularly Chinese and Thai), and doing anything artful and hands-on. Nile is learning French and is also learning how to make his own clothing from scratch. The apartment is also gay friendly.
