Oversized one bedroom apartment on the same street as Jennifer Aniston's home - and two short blocks to famous Magnolia Bakery
This is THE best block of the West Village - tree lined West 4th Street at West 12th Street. All the designer boutiques on Bleecker and wonderful restaurants in the West Village are steps away (Cafe Cluny, Tartine, Extra Virgin, Corner Bistro, etc!).
Also a short walk to the trendy clubs in the Meatpacking District, the Standard Hotel and Highline Park (I walk home alone as a small female, at 3 am on some weekend nights - this is the safest neighborhood in the city).
Also a short walk to Chelsea, Soho, and Greenwich Village.
Surrounded by townhouses, our apartment was fully renovated two years ago, features Stainless Steel Appliances, Dishwasher, an Enormous Kitchen (huge fridge/freezer, stove, oven, microwave and eating area), Four poster canopy bed in the bedroom, Walk in Closet, Enormous (for NYC!) Living room overlooking a tree and townhouse lined cobblestone street, and featuring a 50" LCD TV and DVD Player.
Decorative fireplace, and full stone bathroom with shower.
One and a half blocks from the subway, short walk to Hudson River Park, and the trendy Meatpacking District.
Four Flights Up (The one and only drawback, but provides a great view of the picturesque street, and burns off the food from all the incredible surrounding restaurants - and Magnolia Bakery!)
Great, classic West Village apt. in a great location with a great host!
As a first timer with Airbnb I was somewhat skeptical that the experience would match everything I had heard from others as well as the description and photos of this apartment. Well, I couldn't have been more off base. The searching and booking process with Airbnb was great. The apartment owner, Jared, was incredible and helped make the experience so easy. He responded to my texts immediately and his recommendations for neighborhood restaurants were spot on. The apartment was exactly as it looked on the website. The neighborhood can't be beat. The stairs can be a challenge and the heat was sometimes too much but neither diminished our experience. This was a quintessential NY experience and we are sold on using Airbnb for our travels. Thanks Jared!
The apartment was fantastic. It could not have been a better location surrounded by all the great places in the west village and walking distance to my favourite shopping spots in the west villas, soho and meat packing.
Jared was incredibly helpful and friendly, immediately answering any question. The apartment is exactly what you need, a typical Ny spot. I have no complaints or nothing bad to say.
Thank you Jared and Danielle.
We had a great time in NY staying in the West Village in Jared and Danielle’s flat. They were very responsive from the initial inquiry through our departure. The location is perfect! It’s a cute neighborhood near the subway, great restaurants, cafes, and Hudson River Park. The local restaurant recommendations were helpful and spot on. The apartment is comfortable and had everything we needed. The shower is good. The bed is comfortable. The apartment gets plenty of natural light. We were very happy we chose to stay here over a hotel in mid-town. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Jared and Danielle!
Jared and Danielle were fantastic and so was their lovely flat. They were very helpful and informative before we arrived, answering all my questions about the apartment and about things to do in NYC. After staying in hotels for the last 2 weeks, it was so nice to stay in a home. It had everything we needed for our 3 night stay; perfect location, lovely cafes, bars and eateries close by, subway within a few minutes walk, and a clean and welcoming apartment. We really felt that we were living the NYC life!
The kitchen was equipped well, although like most people we ate out all the time so we didn't really use it much! Clean bathroom with a warm and powerful shower, comfy bed, and airy sitting room. Towels and bedding provided. There are no surprises as Danielle and Jared really are upfront about things - they had told us that it was a top floor walk up so we expected that (perfect for wearing off a few additional calories after a trip to magnolia bakery!)
They really did go out of their way to be helpful and they really love their home so they care about how it is presented. Coming from London it felt like home from home and we loved NYC so much we would love to go back and would rent this flat again.
Thank you so much for a fabulous stay and a wonderful way to celebrate my husbands 30th!
I had a great time at this little gem of an apt in a lovely, quiet part of the West Village. There are lots of overall good reviews for this place, and well deserved. I have to give extra credit for having the doorman hold the keys, so we were able to come in late without bugging the host. And what a treat to be met with cupcakes from local famous bakery. I would recommend this spot to a couple or single person. It would be a great place for a woman travelling alone. Very safe, super friendly neighborhood.
I was on a work trip to the city and my Mom decided to tag along as we'll. instead of a standard (overpriced) hotel, we decided to stay here at Danielle and Jared's place.
I have NO complaints at all about this apartment. It is comfortable, cozy, convenient, and makes you feel like you're a New Yorker instead of a visitor. The neighborhood is wonderful and they gave us a great list of happy hour specials and general restaurant suggestions. When we first arrived, the laundry (bedding and towels) hadn't been returned but they were very responsive and it didn't take long at all to figure out.
The only thing I warn about are the stairs... This is just part of the package because its an old NYC apartment building, and we had no problem with it... But for older people or anyone with an injury, it would be tough to get big bags up the stairs.
Basically I loved this apartment and wish I owned it! Crossing my fingers it's available next time I'm in NY
Thanks so much for being such a great guest! I surely hope you can stay with us again. The maid had not completed the laundry/bedding as she was changing the apartment over, but next time well be glad to have her there early if we know to expect you at a certain time. Hope to have the pleasure of meeting you next you next time!!!
The apartment is located in a fantastic neighborhood with lots of great restaurants and lovely cafe's in walking distance. The area is definitely the most beautiful we have seen in New York so far. The hosts were not in town themselves, but they frequently checked up on us via SMS and email to see if everything was alright. They also sent us a list of recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood. My girlfriend even got cupcakes from Magnolia for her birthday, which was incredibly thoughtful and very sweet. The building is somewhat older and the apartment is on the fifth floor, so only bring your heavy bags if you don't mind a workout. :)
The star of this apartment is the location! Easy walk to the subway, shops, and great restaurants. We felt very safe in the neighborhood and spent one afternoon just strolling the streets of the West Village and Meatpacking District. Keep in mind you will be walking up five flights of stairs so it's not suited for those that would find that difficult. The apartment is located in a historic building and has some quirks like uneven floors and old pipes but it didn't detract from our stay. We never used the kitchen or TV and barely used the living room so I cannot comment on those amenities. Bring an eye mask as the sun rises pretty early! Jared was easy to work with and check-in/out was a breeze.
Thanks, Maureen. It was a pleasure having you. Im glad you enjoyed the location, its truly the best part of the City. As far as the TV and kitchen, they both work great, I'm sorry you couldn't enjoy them! The 50'' LCD TV looks great when watching movies on our Roku box and the kitchen is especially wonderful for cooking gourmet dishes. Of course, who wants to with so many great restaurants just steps away! Also, the flat is located 4 flights up, not 5. But who's counting, right ;)
Cant wait to have you again later on!
Place was great and as described. the Hosts the was excellent.
