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, China Town, West Village and if you like walking, even to midtown.

    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

    Delia was a wonderful host. She is a very friendly and helpful person. She made me feel very comfortable in her apartment, provided a light breakfast of delicious fruits and coffee, bath towels, soap and bath sponge. Her apartment is very clean and tidy. The apartment is in a nice location near the East River and also a few blocks from the 14th Street subway station. It was easy enough to walk around or take the subway.

    I would definitely recommend a stay with her, and look forward to seeing her again soon :)

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 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

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.
