The Space

Hi,
We have private guest bedroom with its own dedicated bathroom in our 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment in the East Village. The apartment is two bedroom/ two bathroom with a separate dining area. Me and my boyfriend live here on our own, but he travels a lot for work, hence I will be in the other bedroom. The whole apartment is around 1000 square feet, so you will have lots of space to yourself. We have a small 7lb toy poodle who is very friendly and welcoming.

The apartment is on avenue C and 12th street, which is close to all the nightlife without the noise. It's a 10 minute walk to the L train and 1 min walk to the M14 crosstown bus, which comes every 30 seconds at rush hour and will take you to anywhere along 14th street. I really can't list all the amazing bars/restaurant within 10 minutes walking distance from the apartment.

The building also has an amazing roof-deck which you will have access to for the BBQ and hanging out. You are also welcome to use the building gym which has elliptical machines, treadmills and free weights.

Included extras:
Clean towels, hotel style toiletries(including single use soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer), hair dryer

Set your mind at ease:

Please note that unlike many other listings our photos have been airbnb verified(taken by a professional airbnb photographer) so they are guaranteed to accurately represent our apartment. This means a no-worries guarantee from airbnb :)

For those concerned about the recent NYC court case involving airbnb.com you can rest easy with our place, since we are permanently residing in the apartment it is not subject to the hotel laws that are currently being challenged in NYC.

For our mutual protection we will not generally communicate via email(so please don't ask), we use the airbnb messaging system so there is record of all communications. If you need to call/text us close to your time of arrival for directions etc. my cell phone number is available once your booking is confirmed. We will not accept any payment method outside of the airbnb system so please do not offer direct paypal or bank transfer(this is for your protection as much as ours!)

Parking:
There is on street parking near our apartment and we will do our best to direct you to it; however it can fill up and so you are responsible for finding your own parking spots and making sure you don't get a ticket!

  • We had a great experience at Lucy's apartment! The place was very clean and spacious and Lucy and Brenden were so friendly and welcoming. We loved the neighborhood - close to bus/subway transportation, close to a walking/biking trail by the water and tons and tons of restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely recommend!

  • Super plan cette location!
    Lucy et son mari sont très attentionnés et accueillants, la chambre est très bien (très bon lit), la salle de bain parfaite. Trinity, leur chien, est un amour.
    C'est la location parfaite pour recharger les batteries après les longues journées New Yorkaises.
    Super facile de rayonner dans tout Manhattan grace au metro (Union Square à proximité).(email hidden) à prendre le taxi! Le quartier d'Alphabet City et plus largement East Village sont vraiment parfait pour sortir/manger, les balades sont multiples. ça fait du bien de respirer hors de Midtown et hors des foules de touristes!

  • Very nice apartment, really clean and well kept. the neighborhood feels safe also. 10 mins by feet for the first subway, which is ok. Hosts will give you plenty of privacy. Overall very good experience if you are used to a private room in an apartment with other people.

  • The apartment is 10 minutes from subway in Alphabet City / East Village. The room, is as it looks like on the picture : nice, modern, clean and the private bathroom is nice too with hair drier, shampoos and conditioners.

    However it was very complicated at the very beginning to meet with our hosts. We wanted to arrive by 11.00 am but it was not possible ; then after few emails we proposed to go to the luggage service store to accommodate. Suddenly, it became possible to arrive at 11.30 am.
    This may be the reason why we had a very special welcome : Lucy kept on repeating how she wanted to accommodate all her guests, insisting on our will to come too early and how sad she was about the previous guests, who were very kind and nice….
    Then, during 4 days, she never saluted us, nor even said a word unless the last day to give us the luggage service store in an aggressive manner.

    Another weird thing is that she insisted, when we arrived, on the fact that we should not say to other people in the block that we were there by airbnb but that we were friends.

  • my bf and i enjoyed our stay at Lucy's! The room was clean, location was good, with the bus and subways pretty close by! Will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fuss free stay.

  • We are 100% satisfied with the room we booked. Lucy and Brendan were very patient for our arrival, as our flight was 5 hours delay, so they stayed home all day to wait us! The appartement, bedroom and bathroom are very clean. They gave us a key and we were very independant to go out and come back, no matter what Time it was. We tried our best to be quiet and respectful, and we had the same attitude in return, so no doubt that if we want to come back to NY, we will go to Lucy and Brendan appartement. Moreover, they are located in East Village, which we really enjoyed. Near from all the restaurants and bars, but far enought to sleep well without noise!
    Really good place, good people, good holidays, I recommend!

  • We had a great stay at Lucy's!

    They were very welcoming, the room was really clean, nice neighbourhood, friendly dog, not to far from the bus or subway... only pluses.

    Due to our own schedule we only stayed for two nights, but we would definitley stay here again!

  • It was a nice stay at Lucys and Brendans home and their little dog Trinity. Everything was very clean. I can totally recommend to stay there for a while.

  • Lucy and Brendan's home is exactly like the pictures with a little poodle called Trinity (who is absolutely adorable and very quiet. She won't bother you at all and knows not to come in the room).

    The apartment is very clean with an amazing location. One block behind their apartment is filled with cafes, restaurants and grocery stores. The street is also amazingly quiet for NY. We had the best sleep during our two week NY stay at their place. They have an open kitchen and let us use whatever we needed - including their washer and dryer which was very appreciated.

    As per their house rules, they like quiet guests but don't mind how late or early you get in. They also recommended fabulous places to eat and a great Broadway show - Sleep No More.

    Transport - so very convenient to hop off the bus and walk 2 metres to your door step! The closet subway is a short bus ride away or about a 15min walk. We walked this most days as it's a lovely walk with lots of food on the way.

    Lucy and Brendan let us stay longer after their checkout time with very short notice which was very kind of them. I contacted Lucy one morning and she was very responsive. She made sure we were as comfortable as possible.

    By far the best experience of our trip. We would book here again without a doubt.

    Worth noting the bed is also ridiculously comfortable.

  • The apartment was really nice and well kept. It looks exactly like the pictures, and was really comfortable for us! East Village is a great place to stay for a vacation in New York. The house is about a 10 minute walk from the Subway station but it's not too bad.

    It seemed like Lucy was quite nice to the other guests who were in the house before us. She let them leave their bags in the house past check-in and seemed to have gotten to know them quite well. However, for some reason, she didn't let us leave our bags at her place past checkout. She also made a big deal out of giving us the keys in the morning, even though she was already awake and as were the guests who were in the house before us. The noise incident she described in the review for us sounds fictional since we definitely went out of our way to not disturb anyone. Just for the record, we were there for a holiday weekend and we didn't know that coming home late would be a problem.

    All in all, the apartment is beautiful and well located. Lucy seems to be a nice person but for some reason she seemed to have something against us.

    Response from Lucy:

    Hi, we tried our best to accommodate you two,, however, you two were slamming doors at 2am on your holiday, our workday and wake us up. We only respect and go out our way for guests that respect our presence in the apt. Why didn't you mention I went out my way to mail you back the charger you left
