Description

Wonderful, quiet 1 bedroom private apartment (that sleeps 3-4 people) with outdoor patio in 24 hour doorman building in the heart of the lively East Village.

***PLEASE DO NOT MAKE RESERVATION REQUEST UNTIL I CONFIRM AVAILABILITY!!!!***

THE DESCRIPTION: This new apt in the East Village would be perfect for a couple, 2 couples or small group of family and friends who want to experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's very clean, extremely quiet,spacious and has things no hotel can offer.

This posting is for use of a private apartment with a bedroom, full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, living room, dining area and an outdoor patio! This awesome apartment building has a killer roof deck with panoramic views of all of NYC and bridges. The building is manned with a 24 HOUR Doorman / Security to keep us safe. It's actually the upstairs of my entire 3 bedroom apartment in which I list as my King Weston, but the 2 floors are separated as they each have their own entrance and bathroom.

Prices:

Start from $ 200 / night (minimum 7 nights).
Stays less than 7 nights are 250/night (Fri,Sat,Sun) and/or 225/night Mon-Thurs). Prices vary due to other circumstances as well. During summer months (May through September), the minimum stay is 3 nights (on weekends), unless it precedes or adds to an existing reservation. I will send special offer to reflect the correct pricing.

Additional guests after the first 2 people are $ 30 per person per night. Maximum is 5 people.

Cleaning charges: Cleaning is included for stays up to 7 nights. Stays more than 7 nights are $ 60 which you will pay directly to house cleaner who will come and clean apt and do laundry (towels + sheets) once per week (Mon or Tues) after your 7th night.

The patio off the kitchen is just perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning with some sun which faces the beautiful courtyard with little to no street noise.

If you're the physical type, there is a gym (free) for your use in the basement of the building as well as a laundry room (coin operated), vending machines and ATM as well.

The unit has a fully stocked kitchen: full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, microwave, top of the line stainless cookware, utensils, dishware, glassware and a full private bathroom.

The Building and Neighborhood: This building complex has 125 units, mostly 2 bedrooms, but this is a special 3 BR Duplex with outdoor patios! I split the apt into 2 apartments, making this a 1 bedroom private apartment.

This neighborhood is very lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5 years and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The East Village offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and a beautiful park. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order in and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight). And these little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places. There are at least three 24/hr places to eat within 1 block. This building is one of only a few in the neighborhood that has a doorman and an elevator. About 95% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups. Your "home away from home" will provide the NYC experience not soon forgotten: the spectacular panoramic view of NYC on the roof deck (elevator and outdoor furniture up there), 2 private patios in the unit, a huge courtyard in middle of complex, about 50 restaurant/bars/cafe's within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius. Enjoy a beautiful park (Tompkins Square) at the end of the block and an East River waterfront park about 4 streets/blocks to the east.

For additional fees, I can recommend a car service for pick-up/drop off @ airport (depending on my work schedule/arrival time), take you to attractions in NYC, on Long Island, Catskills, Hamptons, etc.. I can be your personal tour guide to all the tourist attractions, as well as to the cool, not-in-the-guide-books places for nightlife or dinner.

ADDITIONAL INFO / CHARGES:

For stays of more than 7 nights, a small deposit may be required pending on length of requested stay and cleaning charge of $ 50 for stays more than 9 nights, as house keeper will come after 7 nights to clean and do laundry.

The bedroom is for a single person or couple. There is a sofa that pulls out into bed (full size and actually quite comfortable!) and an extra mattress or air mattress for 2 additional people. Additional guests more than 2 are $ 30 per person per night. Maximum is 5 people.

No check ins on weekends (Sat or Sun) during the Summer months (May thru Sept), occasionally, but not likely, I can a do a late night Sunday check in, or early morning (before 9 am) Saturday, from arriving on a red eye flight from Friday night.

Linens: Clean when you arrive.

Towels: Clean when you arrive.

Breakfast: Included in price, to help start your days. Coffee, Tea, Juice, Pastries or Bagels or Cereal, milk.

***PLEASE DO NOT MAKE RESERVATION REQUEST UNTIL I CONFIRM AVAILABILITY!!!!***

Full private apartment or private room in my apartment with bathroom and patio.

Food, drink, people and everything in the coolest area of Manhattan!

For lazy people, there are subways, taxi on the corner or buses. After living in/around NYC for 20+ years, I've learned it takes about 20-45 minutes to get anywhere, from anywhere, in Manhattan whether you walk, take a taxi or use the subway. Buses probably take double of everything else and seem like you're never moving as you'll see pedestrians pass you. Citibikes are great for short trips. I recommend walking to wherever you are going and take a cab back if you're tired..

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

Keep noise down after midnight during the week. There are full time resident neighbors who live here permanently and work Monday thru Friday.

If you break something, you bought it.

Flexible CHECK IN / OUT. It all depends on whether guests are checking in or out the day you arrive/leave. Normally, if people are checking in the day you are leaving, you must check out by 12 Noon but you may keep your luggage safely stored until your flight leaves. If guests are checking out the day you check in, the house cleaner comes at 9 am or 12 noon, so depending on when the previous guest is leaving the place will be ready either @ 12 noon or 3 pm at the latest. If there are no guests checking in the day you are leaving, you may check out whenever you wish.

Guests who are brought over and stay the night may be subject to $ 30 extra person fee.

Smoke cigarettes OUTSIDE on the patios please!

Update February 2014 - After 3 great years of success renting out rooms in my apartment, I suggest just shooting me a message and let me know your dates, the make up of your party (singles/couples/kids/grand peeps, sorry no pets) and any special needs you may desire. Take a look at my reviews and well, you'll get the picture!! I'll be delighted to add you to my wonderful guest list now topping 39 different countries!

As you'll see my original profile info below, I'm quite happy to say the last 3 years have been wonderful. I've met so many great people, both here and on my travels. Having me as your host, will certainly make your life easier here in the Big Apple. Pleasure, business or both I'm happy to share my vast NYC knowledge with you.

June 1, 2010: As a long time resident of NY, I've been living in NYC for the past 5 years, but grew up in the suburbs about 30 miles east on Long Island. Currently, I'm working as an Interior designer / General Contractor with an emphasis on performing the finish work myself and crew(s).

After traveling all around the U.S.A. for a Sales job for a few years after graduating college, I've learned a ton about the hospitality business, traveling in general and have how to treat people by doing my very best to surpass expectations. I provide excellent customer service, clean rooms in a great neighborhood, all in a beautiful apartment in the best city in the world, New York City!
