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 near Highbridge park and the Harlem river.
The space has a full bed, shared bathroom, closet space available, a desk and chairs, and shelf space. We've provided throw pillows and blankets for extra comfort on those cold nights. White Christmas lights are strung along the wall for added ambiance. Wick-less scented candles are provided to enhance your visit. The room has a radiator, fan, and hanging space. It is used as a sewing studio when not being occupied by a guest. You're welcome to use the desk space as you please.

Guest access

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

Interaction with guests

We are in and out of the apartment throughout the day and use the space to relax and unwind. We do our best to keep a warm, quiet, and relaxing environment for ourselves and our guests. We are friendly people and are available for any questions or concerns about your stay.

Other things to note

We are located in a safe neighborhood right next to a daycare on one side and a school on the other.

We had a great stay with Nile. The location's good, the area quiet, and the apartment to me was nicer than in the pictures. The room we stayed in and the hall are wonderfully decorated. Nile was always available for questions and helped us with any issues that we had. The only downside is the bathroom which, even though it has a really big bathtub, is pretty narrow.

Nile's place fit the bill when we wanted to stay a couple nights in the Heights. It was comfortable and affordable for Manhattan. The fan in the room worked great for the heat of the summer and the bed was comfortable. I'd note that the bathroom is small--specifically access to the toilet--so if the narrow access might be an issue for you, keep that in mind. For us there wasn't much of interest in the neighbourhood and few nearby streets felt a little uncomfortable to walk at night but we had no issues and there seemed to be friendly mix of families and folks of all ages out and about. I appreciated the friendly welcome and short tour from Nile.

I had a great (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable bed in a big enough room. I could cook in the kitchen as well. There was Nile and his roommate in the flat who I didn't meet. Nile was a really nice host. I would definitely stay here again.

Nile User ProfileNile is a superhost.

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.
