Drop in a couple quarters, and instantly a chromatic swirl of textures and patterns lights up the display. A plush living room, restaurant-grade kitchen, and funky elements like grape shag carpeting, a groovy Pucci print armchair, and 8-bit cross-stitched leopard throw pillows all add up to a home you can lose yourself in. Get comfy and grab the controls – you've found a secret level in the heart of Chelsea, and you're sure to beat your best score here.
See those initials at the top of the high score screen? Those belong to your hosts, an artist and a writer who moved to New York City to level up their art. Together with their pair of rambunctious sons they've got plenty of experience points when it comes to cooking, travelling, and exploring their neighbourhood.
Choose your character, settle onto the massive brown velvet couch, and dive in. There's many a fun family game night to be had in this home, whether you prefer a state-of-the-art console or an old-school board game. As you twist and turn through the Pac-Man maze of rooms you'll marvel at the full-colour graphics: orange lacquer cabinets, a pixillated bathroom in groovy 70's shades, and original wood flooring stained a rich mahogany. Even the marble slab of the kitchen counter is shot through with purple veins. Keep an eye out for Easter eggs that give your avatar special powers. (Maybe you'll find one in the master bathroom's custom Bollywood wallpaper or the monkey statues in the master bedroom.) You'll be on top of the standings in no time.
The second and third bedrooms do not feature air-conditioning as they are internal bedrooms with no windows. However, these rooms do feature industrial wall fans.
There is space for a double airbed in the living room if you need extra sleeping space for your stay. Please let us know when you book if you would like it prepared.
During the winter months, the heating pipes can make noticeable noise and cannot be adjusted.
There are no wardrobes in the second and third bedrooms, so we will provide a hanging rail for storage.
