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.

    Delia is the absolut best host any guest could wish for! She's a lovely and kind-hearted person, always up for a little chat and makes sure that her place feels like a home away from home. I will certainly miss talking and laughing with her in the mornings and evenings and sometimes even throughout the day while enjoying one of the countless activities in New York City.
    The apartment is very cozily decorated and always clean and neat. Its location makes it easy to get around and start exploring, either by bus and subway or simply by foot.
    All in all I can a 1000% recommend staying at Delia's place if you're looking for an enriching and authentic New York experience! I will definitely come and visit her again.

    Delia was wonderful, and welcomed me so warmly into her home. Her apartment is lovely and Delia did everything to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. She helped me with local information, and was a pleasure to talk to. I would definitely stay with Delia next time I'm in NYC.

    I am so grateful that I was able to spend the week with Delia. Firstly, the location is super central, you can reach all the sights within 10 to 20 minutes by train (only a little bit longer by foot). In addition, the flat is so clean and nicely furnished and the room is very spacious. On the other hand, Delia is a super host, she gave me a briefing on the street and metro system of New York on the evening of my arrival. This made a lot of things easier for the following days, including tips on what is worth seeing and what is not. We had such entertaining and lovely chats every evening when I returned from my excursions and continued them in the morning. Breakfast was provided by Delia and she even enquired beforehand what I liked to eat. I would stay with her again anytime and recommend it to anyone for a profitable time in New York. I hope to see her again.

    Isabel, thank you so much for your kind words in the review! It was certainly my pleasure to have you as my guest. I really enjoyed our chats regarding your excursions of the city, many of which I've done and some still to do! I hope you can return again and be my guest again!

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) 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.
