About the Homestay
I live on a tree lined street in a culturally and ethnically diverse neighbourhood in The Clasons' Point area of The Bronx, New York. I am also located a short distance from The Bronx Zoo, Yankee Stadium, Bay Plaza Shopping Mall, Bronx Museum of The Arts, The Cloisters, The Bronx Botanical Gardens and City Island.
All potential guests are required to introduce themselves. You are also asked to download a copy of your government identification at the time your reservation is confirmed or a copy will be made at the time you check in.
New York Waterways Ferry Service is now available for $2.75 per person from Clasons Point / Soundview Station just a 5 minute walk from my home and 25 minutes gets you to midtown
The closest train to my location is #6 Lexington line you have two stations Bx39 to Parkchester Station or the Bx27 to Morrison Avenue / Soundview Station.
There is a third option the Bx27 from my home to the last stop Westchester Avenue & Southern Blvd walk 200 yards a 3 minute walk to Simpson Street Station here you have #2 train on the 7th Avenue line or the #5 express train on The Lexington line.
There is another option Bx39 local bus runs on White Plains Road from my home to Bruckner Blvd and there's an express bus BxM8 that takes you with limited stops to Manhattan City Center with stops on 5th Avenue. To return to my home using this mode of transportation you would get the bus back to the Bronx on Madison Avenue as 5th Avenue is a one way street.

This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Everything's wonderful except the pullout couch is right next to the front door so that people knock the privacy screen over with the door. Almost landed on me! So I got what I paid for.
Une personne accueillante et chaleureuse, qui vous aidera aussi bien qu'elle le peut. La maison est cosy, cute et bien située, transport facile. Je reviendrai
Had a wonderful time living in the Bronx with Carol Gloria . I would wholly recommend my friends and family to her .
Gloria was a wonderful host and helped us beyond my expectations with information about the area enabling my son and I to thoroughly enjoy our stay and visit to N.Y.C.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
