East Village Duplex with Patio

Apartment - Private room · E 6th St, New York, NY 10009, United States

The Space

I live in an East Village duplex and I am offering the downstairs bedroom for a single traveler or a couple during their visit to NYC.

Your room has a lovely outdoor patio to relax, where you can have your morning coffee or evening wine. Your room also has a private bathroom (I have my own bathroom upstairs) and a private access door of its own. The kitchen is on the top floor. You are more than welcome to keep your stuff in the fridge or use the china or glassware but please no serious cooking...

What comes with the room:
- A private bathroom with a bathtub (just like a hotel)
- A private entrance door from outside
- Clean sets of towels (will be changed every couple of days)
- A very comfortable queen size bed
- A nightstand
- A sizable wardrobe
- A dresser
- Outdoor patio with deck chairs
- Storage space for your suitcases
- Iron and ironing board
- Hairdryer
- Shampoo, conditioner and toothpaste
- A bicycle to ride around NYC

What is included in the price:
- Free internet access
- Complimentary glass of wine or beer upon your arrival
- Use of the kitchen

I am a medical school student and I bartend 6 nights a week so you would have the apartment to yourself most of the time. And even when I am in the apartment, your downstairs room is very private and has its own door to outside. And you have your private bathroom.

Just a note to people who highly regard their privacy: Unless you come upstairs to use the kitchen, we do not have to cross paths. So your space is very private and cozy.

As you can understand from the nature of this post, I am looking for tourists who are here to enjoy NYC and I would like to provide them a home at a central, fun location at a reasonable price. The location is East 6th Street in East Village right by Avenue A.

10 minutes from Soho, 5 minutes from Little Italy/Chinatown and 10 minutes from Union Square. F train is five blocks away.

Let me know if you are interested and contact me with questions. My acceptance rate is low not because I am ultra-selective but because I advertise on different channels and the airbnb calendar is not always up-to-date. So please do not hesitate to contact me with your travel dates.

All the best,

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This spot is perfectly located in the E. Village. It's cozy and warm, with access to outside patio. Sinan was a great host. I was there on business and really just needed a place to recharge and get work done.

    The room felt very private even though there's no real door (just a curtained stairwell) between the upstairs and this downstairs room.

  • Sinan's apartment is simply awesome. It's pretty private, comfortable and has anything you'll need. And having your own key and separated door thing assures you that late (and kind of drunk) arrivals won't bother anyone. Sinan is a really great guy and also very kind. East Village is a great place with a lot of cool stuff to do and really good restaurants. Specially the ones Sinan recommended me.

  • Simple, modest and clean! Overall good and clear communication with Sinan-- didn't meet him in person but had absolutely no problems finding the apartment or staying there. If you're looking for a simple crash pad, this is it! It's a very tiny room with just the basics (no TV and didn't want to disturb the kitchen upstairs but there's free WIFI). The location is AWESOME with tons of nearby bars/small restaurants/groceries, SOHO, easy to catch a cab within 30 seconds of walking. Alphabet City (within East Village) is a really cool & trendy place to stay in NYC if you're looking for a more gritty/diverse/ethnic/local vibe.

    All in all, if you want to experience a cool part of NYC and location is your Priority #1, then this place is PERFECT!

  • Staying at Sinan's place is one of the good choices I've made on selecting hotel rooms or airbnb rooms.
    U get a private space downstairs Sinan's and your own bathroom
    And Sinan's very nice to keep our luggages before we come back for our late night flight

    As for transportation, M14a bus takes you to many subway stations if u don't want to walk 10 mins to the nearest subway station.

    February 2014
  • Sinan was very easy to communicate with. We had a change in our dates and he was able to accommodate us. Our flight arrived early in the morning 7:00am. He had a guest checking out that morning but was still able to have the room ready by 9:00am.
    He let us leave our bags there on checkout day so we could do a little more exploring before it was time to leave.
    He gave us great near by restaurant recommendations as well.

    January 2014
  • I never met Sinan during my stay at his place, but he left clear and detailed instructions on how to find the apartment and retrieve the keys, and a very nice friend of his whom I did meet was able to give me some helpful advice on navigating the city. I didn't stay for long, but I had a great and hassle-free accommodation experience.

    January 2014
  • Sinan's place is the perfect base for a city trip to New York. He is a friendly host and gave us some great tips for restaurants and bars. Although the nearest subway is not super close, we didn't mind the walk. East Village is a great neighborhood with cool cocktail bars and restaurants and definitely worth exploring.

    January 2014
  • Sinan has been very helpful, nice and welcoming.
    He agrees to keep our luggages in his kitchen for the last day before taking the train, giving us the key and all instructions to lock the door safely.
    The place is very quiet but not so close to the subway, however some buses are at the end of the street.
    All the comfort is in the place but it's really necessary to say that it is a room in basement (with a door and window to the outside very cute in spite of winter weather) and the only separation to the upstair is a spiral staircase curtained off.
    We had a nice stay.

  • Nice place. Had a great time at Sinan's place. He and his girlfriend is friendly and ever so helpful. Lots of place to dine and pub around the area!
