This is a pretty studio, with its own bathroom and shower and there is a kitchen you can use but is shared with the unit upstairs. There is a queen bed, a couch and a spare mattress. Brand new carpet and furniture.
My AIRBNB listing is LEGAL in New York City, it's ok to rent rooms in a townhouse, and not ok to rent them in an apartment building.
Hi, I am renting out my brand new apartment on the border of East Village and Greenwich Village. It is 550 sq feet. It has one bathroom. The kitchen with the washer and dryer is separate and shared with the upstairs unit. Its a second flight up.
Times are slow for January and February so feel free to ask me for a deal, specially for longer days.
I have two other listings in the building:
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/126443 for a 2BR and
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/568743 for the duplex 2BR
Its fully furnished with a a queen bed and a couch that can sleep one. If you need an extra mattress its possible.
This is by far the hottest area of Manhattan to live at the moment, the subway N R and 6 is 2 1/2 blocks away, F is 5 short blocks away and L is 8.
The apt comes with fresh sheets and towels as part of the small cleaning fee.
Good AC with remote controls. Perfect for visiting NYU (3 blocks away).
Lots of people asking me if its available for certain dates. The calendar in airbnb is accurate, so when it shows availability you can just book it. I know its scary booking stuff on the net but if you want me to give you a call after the booking just specify so and I will answer all your questions. I have a pretty strict cancellation policy but you still get most of your money back if you need to cancel. If you need to stay for a few months i can give you a good deal.
1) Is there onsite laundry in the apartment? Or a nearby laundromat?
yes small in apt wash fold x 2 av
2) I believe the ad said that it's flexible check-in/check-out...is there an absolute time we have to check in by or check out by? In other words, what's the latest we can check in or check out (we arrive in New York at 5:40pm)?
you can leave bags until 9pm in kitchen
3) When does the cleaning lady come? Also, is she optional? Some people are worried about having someone go through their stuff
before u arrive and after u leave
4) How may sets of keys will we be given? Can we have four sets since some of us will be going in and out at different times?
2 but u can make copies on 7st 2av hw store for 2 dollars. don't buzz all apartments because you forgot keys, call me there is a backup key in a restaurant and i can arrange for it. Also if you need to arrive late there is a way to leave you a key, please ask me and I will explain.
5) If something goes wrong (with the plumbing, electrical or whatever) who do we call? Will we be left someone's contact info?
call me, i have a plumber and carpenter on call. there is a sticker with plumber number on the boilers and water heaters in real emergency. the restaurant on the first floor helps you out.
6) Will you be stopping by the place during our stay? (Some people have read reviews about owners showing up without notice)
7) Is there anything we should be aware of? Maintenance issues, noises, weird neighbors....
just dont buzz all apts at 2am. Don't write me a message if you really don't want to book just to see if I reply, I get tons of messages and I reply to every one of them. I know its expensive, if you want to negotiate a price its possible, specially for longer stays, please send me a listing from airbnb for an equivalent place that is cheaper and I will match it. Thanks for reading, by renting this you are helping me pay for Stanford ;)
REGARDING THE REVIEW OF TOILET PAPER ETC: I now have a full time cleaning lady that deals with all the problems. Alex was the first person to stay in the place and all these issues are now fixed.
REGARDING THE SHARED KITCHEN - yes this place has a shared kitchen. It has a private shower, and bathroom and its otherwise a studio (a bedroom and living room in one room, like a hotel room), there is a separate room that is shared as a small kitchen and hallway between you and the second studio. The upstairs apt has its own kitchen.

The experience was great. The best thing about the studio is the location. The place was clean when we arrived and the heater was working just fine during our stay. One thing to keep in mind is the size of the bathroom. Since they are separely - toilet and shower - we had to squeeze in each time.
We left all of our luggages in the kitchen after the check out time so we could enjoy a little bit more of the city. It worked out great.
Great place to stay! Owner was very accommodating. :) close to subway
Special thanks to Seith! Everything went perfect, we really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and heated when we arrived. East Village is one of the hottest spots in Manhattan - perfect for shopping, dinner & going out for drinks! Love it!
I stayed at this apartment with three other friends and our overall experience was good. It is as described on the listing. The bathroom and toilet is very small and tight but this was expected from other reviews I read.
The only problem we had during our stay was that the WiFi didn't work. I had contacted Seith who told me to reset the modem but it still didn't work. I had asked the people living upstairs if it had worked for them and they too were experiencing problems connecting. However, this wasn't to big of an issue as we were only there for two nights.
The apartment is close to lots of shops and bars, it's definitely a good place to stay if you want to be close to good night life. It was also very warm, which was good for us as we stayed during the winter.
Best feature of the apartment was the location. It was excellent for walking around East Village, Lower East Side, Union Square and even an easy walk to Greenwich Village and West Village. We even walked to the financial district from the apartment and it took just under an hour. So it's really a fantastic location. The nearest stop is the 2nd avenue subway stop. Really easy to get into Williamsburg.
Comfortable bed and the apartment was mostly good; warm and cosy. We were a bit disappointed that the bathroom had to be accessed through the kitchen which was shared by every single person staying in the apartment block. This meant that if we wanted to go to the bathroom or have a shower we would have to walk through when people were sitting in the kitchen which made it a bit awkward. Although it is technically a private bathroom, there is nothing really stopping anyone from using the bathroom if they wanted to and on a number of occasions there was actually people using it. We definitely got used to it but it was just a bit disappointing because we would have preferred our own bathroom connected to the room.
Overall though, it was a good stay and Keith was really quick to respond at all times. We were mainly interested in the location which was awesome!
Great location and very nice host
Overall, it is an awesome place! The studio was super spacious and location is amazing -- it is close to many restaurants, and an easy walk to SOHO, St. Marks, Midtown, Greenwich Village etc. The whole process was also really smooth, as Seith provided clear instructions prior to the trip with notes throughout the unit as well. It was well thought out. The only downside was that the bathroom stall was quite small, even for us girls, so could imagine it being uncomfortable for some. That being said, not a deal breaker for us, and would definitely stay here again!
We had mixed feeling about this apartment. Like other travellers, we found the bathroom and toilet to be extremely small but we had read other people's reviews and were aware of that before we arrived. The apartment is rather run down, e.g. windows that were broken and not able to be open, a washing machine with a broken door, air conditioner that wasn't allowed to be used. There wasn't a full compliment of crockery etc in the kitchen if both units wanted to make use of the shared kitchen at the same time and the cupboards didn't have handles on them which made them very hard to open. The front door on street level did not lock, however, there was a locked gated entrance on the footpath. It was however, clean and close to a subway and a vast array of restaurants. Picking up the key from the deli was easy.
