About Tamara and Francisca
We are family with a little kid, living in the Bronx. We love to travel, meet new folks from all over the world, eat, laugh, dance, sing, and live mindfully. We live right above the studio apartment, in the third floor unit.

Nice unit. Great hosts. 2 problems.
The unit was very nice. A great small kitchen with an outside balcony right next to it. Bathroom was bright and clean. Plenty of room and drawers to unpack your suitcases. Sleeps 4. Had everything you needed for a short stay. Unit appears to have been a converted "basement" (which is not a problem).
Note: you need to walk up at least 20 steep steps to get to the unit. There is no natural light in the unit, except for the kitchen area which leads out to the balcony. Was very nice relaxing on the balcony.
The hosts Tamara and Francisca are very nice and helpful. Were always available if you had any questions. Texts were promptly returned.
Neighborhood was nice with a little market (I believe the name was C-Town), right around the corner.
We only had 2 problems.
1. The noise from above. You can easily hear walking, talking, etc. It wasn't out-of-hand, but it is still easily heard. There is a common door to the main residence that is always locked on both sides.
2. Parking. Yes, I know. What was I thinking driving in NYC? Couldn't always park at the residence. No real driveway to park in. Was a real pain looking for parking, even though there are no restrictions for parking on the streets. If you don't drive, they are close to the bus stop (approx. 5-7 min walk) which you then can make a connection to the trains.
You can’t go wrong!
This is a comfortable, clean, and spacious accommodation; located within walking distance of many, and diverse eateries. Nearby grocery stores facilitate keeping the kitchenette fully stocked for “in home dining “ during your stay. Downtown New York City is conveniently reached by public transportation a short walk away. The hostesses are attentive, friendly, and a joy to interact with. I fully intend to return on my next visit.
