About the Homestay
Hi, my name is Delia. I have a clean and neat room in a cozy apartment in Manhattan. There's also an elevator in the building, (which is accessed by going up one flight of stairs). The building is monitored by cameras. I've lived in Manhattan practically all my life. I love to meet different people from all over. I love to travel, to go to broadway shows, and the movies. I would love to share some of my travel experiences with you! I recently retired as an office manager at a Radiologic School in a public hospital in the city.
Please note: The room also has a ceiling fan, iron, hair blower, flat iron, DVD player, mirror, dresser and closet. I provide clean sheets and towels. THERE IS PLENTY OF HAND SANITIZERS, AND HAND SOAPS!! I am constantly wiping down high touched areas with Lysol wipes! For those who are concerned about COVID 19 - I am fully vaccinated. I hope that you are as well.
In order to ease guests of payment concerns, guests may pay balances via Paypal, Zelle, or cash upon arrival to the apartment.
Check-in time is 12:00 pm on weekends and 10:00 am on weekdays. Check-out time is 2:00 pm however, if we discuss ahead of time, I can be flexible with both times.... Just tell me what you need and we can make it happen. I am flexible with cancellations and will issue refunds for early departures resulting in unused nights.
This area is easy enough to walk to other neighborhoods such as Chelsea, China Town, Soho, Noho, West Village and if you like walking, even to midtown.

Staying at Delia's house was the best choice i made for my vacation: i felt comfortable, at ease, in One Word Happy. Delia Is a wonderful soul, She likes staying together but at the same time She Is strongly Independent and let people be free of they prefere stay by themselves. I passed a lot of time with her and we laughed a lot, we had dinner together, we went to museum... Etc. Delia Is super funny and kind and she's my friend now. I Hope i Will Meet her everywhere in the world.
Delia is a wonderful woman, super attentive and cheerful. Her house is very cozy, fragrant, bathroom and room very clean and comfortable. I loved staying at her house because the address for me was great to get to places. She helped me with everything I needed, always very helpful. In the morning she offered me coffee every day! The kitchen let me use and also store things in the fridge. I intend to come back because it was definitely the best choice I made on my trip.
Delia is a lovely, competent, very attentive and careful host. The flat is very cozy, pleasant and well located. Dear Delia, I appreciate you very much! Thank you a lot!
Perfect place in a great neighborhood with a wonderful host. Couldn't have found a better place. Delia was extremly welcoming and excited to share lots of information about New York City with me. The small shared bathroom was never a problem, we got up at diffenent times. Delia even gave me my favourite Ikea cookies for the flight back. I highly recommend her and hope to be back soon!
Having Delia as a host far exceeded my expectations, as I not only had a clean, pleasant place to stay but also made a forever friend in the city. I felt comfortable both in my room and the shared living spaces, thanks to Delia's motherly, communicative personality. I will miss evening Scrabble, pasteles & ice cream, and our long talks, but I'll see you soon and will keep in touch regularly. :')
Delia was a lovely, delicate and hospitable host. I was very pleased to meet her. Her house was comfortable, very clean and with a very good atmosphere. Everything necessary for living was provided: towels, bed linen, shower set, dishes and so on.The house has a very good location, very close to the center of Manhattan. Metro and buses nearby. The neighbourhood is very quiet and safe. Near many places where you can eat cheaply, close to many supermarkets. I had a great time in new York, I will definitely be back at Delia's house next year. With gratitude and respect to the host, Natalia
