The Space

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST (via the grey "Contact Me" button) with any questions and the dates of your visit BEFORE making an actual booking request (via the blue "Book It" button). My guest room is in an excellent location, a great value and an extremely popular booking--all of which you can see in my glowing reviews. Sometimes my calendar may show dates available, but I may actually be holding those dates for someone who has already contacted me first. In fairness, I always accept booking requests for the same dates in the order received.

If you make a booking request before contacting me and getting a response, I regret that I will have to deny your booking request.

Also--and THIS IS IMPORTANT--I will never extend an invitation to make a booking request to anyone who doesn't have his or her profile completed with 1) a personal photo (of yourself--not of the mountains or your dog or flowers or...), 2) some Airbnb verifications and 3) some personal information so that I have an idea of whom I might be inviting into my home. Please make sure of this BEFORE contacting me.

One final note--because I have had a couple of recent bookings where the guests informed me of a late-night arrival AFTER booking the room--I generally cannot accommodate late-night arrivals in this apartment. If your flight, bus, train or other mode of transportation will have you arriving at night and arriving at the apartment at a late hour, I apologize in advance, but I will not be able to accommodate a late check-in.

I'm offering a cozy, private room in my apartment in the East Village. (Also see my other listing for the larger guest room in this apartment: "Great Room in Lively East Village".) The guest room is comfortably furnished with a beautiful single bed from West Elm with a relaxing, restful, plush euro pillowtop mattress--not some cheap, hard mattress with springs poking you in the back all night and barely any cushioning! Additionally, there's an armoire/wardrobe in the room if you'd like to fully unpack your suitcase and get comfortable.

Fresh, quality bed linens and towels are provided for your stay, as is WiFi. Additionally, there is an iron and hair dryer available for shared use. In the kitchen you'll find a delicious selection of mostly organic teas for your enjoyment. You are absolutely welcome to make use of the kitchen to prepare any meals, if you wish, and you are invited to get comfortable in the living area and read a book or watch television.

My apartment is a fairly typical NYC flat--not humongous but very welcoming, warm, safe and clean (earth-friendly, cruelty-free products are used). Your host--that would be me--is a genuinely kind, friendly, former Midwesterner who wants to make sure your visit to this fabulous city is wonderful (I hope you love it as much as I do!) and that your stay in my home is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. In short, while you are visiting, my home is your home.

Situated on East 10th Street, the location is convenient to all that this city has to offer. The L train is a two-minute walk away, and Tompkins Square Park is right around the corner. Within a short walking distance is Union Square, Greenwich Village, the Lower East Side, SoHo, Washington Square Park and more! Subway trains that are very close include the L, 4, 5, 6, F, N, R, Q, all of which will connect you wherever you want to go in a snap!

For your convenience, the neighborhood offers plenty of restaurants (including vegetarian/vegan, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, pizza, falafels, diners and much more), grocery stores (including Whole Foods and Trader Joe's), farmer's markets, coffee shops, 24-hour delis, pharmacies, off-Broadway theatres, cinemas, nightlife options and more.

Other Things to Note

1. The room itself is about 6.5'x8.25' (about 53.5 sq. feet/5 sq. meters), and there are two guest rooms in the apartment.

2. Your bedroom is private, but YOU WILL BE SHARING THE COMMON AREAS of the apartment (bathroom, kitchen and living room) if the other guest room is booked for the same time period. If this is an issue for you, then check out my Greenwich Village guest room and do not book this room.

The place is super-convenient as noted above, has an awesome host (if I may say so myself) and is a great value.

I enjoy meeting different people, and I look forward to welcoming you as a guest into my home.

  • Everything exactly as described. John was great, the bed was very comfortable and the entire place was very clean and comfortable. Easy access to public transportation and convenintly located in East Village, which is a great, fun neighborhood with tons of great restaraunts, bars, architecture, art, etc.

    I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend John to anyone staying in NYC and will look him up next time I am in the city.

  • The location, the room and the host were all more than I could've hoped for! The host, John, is always available for questions through the web and he checks up on you daily to make sure that everything is to your satisfaction.

    So, looking for an affordable place that's (email hidden)ly but not to crowded area where you can get a good night's sleep and still be close to the metro? Look no further.

  • Great host! Needed a place to stay on short notice. John's place is affordable and hospitable. Will definitely stay there again next time I'm in NYC!

    June 2014
  • Wanted to explore the East Village this time around and John's place was the perfect location to do so from! In the heart of the Village, a short walk to the lower east side and a little further to the Brooklyn Bridge!
    The apartment was just what I needed- a quite, comfy place to sleep and a safe space to store my stuff. The little extras like the spare umbrella were a lifesaver! Ps. NY doors can be a little tricky to open!

  • GREAT neighborhood, easy rental. John was very accommodating waiting all day for me to arrive! Bed, towels, and clean apartment stocked with tea = great experience. I will be back.

  • It is always a pleasure to stay at John's. The location is perfect and safe and the room is comfortable.

    June 2014
  • Staying at John's was (once again) a great experience! He keeps the place so clean and welcoming, and really makes such an effort to ensure the comfort of his guests. Highly recommended!

  • Well by far the most comfortable mattress I have slept on hands down . John Talks about this like it's some big selling point - well it is!!!. I had been in NYC for about 8 days when I landed at Johns place and let me say I will be mattress hunting when I get back home to Australia.

    Aside from the mattress, the apartment is smallish but plenty of room to be comfortable. There is a tv couch etc in the living area but I guess never having been to NYC I was out and about most of the day and evening, should the weather not be as kind to you as it was me you could relax on the couch and watch the tv. Of course there is the wifi which is always helpful.

    The location itself is really nice, very trendy east village/ union square area which has some really beautiful streets, cafés and shopping, I loved this area. Just walking around the neighbourhood day or night is great. I loved this part of town probably more than any other but you have to explore this town North, South East and West, there are gems everywhere.

    John is a great guy too very helpful and knowledgable about the town.

    Thanks again John I would recommend this place to any traveller and I would certainly stay again if it was available. As you can see it is very popular.

    Cheers

  • John sets the gold standard when it comes to AirBnB hosts. His generous hospitality makes any trip to NY that much more enjoyable. The apartment was conveniently located and exceptionally clean. The bed was super comfortable and the room cosy. All round, a great place!

About
I'm a New Yorker by way of the Midwest who is as madly in love with this city as the first time I visited. I enjoy travel (though I don't get to do it as much as I'd like), meeting new people, photography and continually exploring this great city. I am a genuinely friendly and caring person with a creative and nurturing spirit. In my day job, I am a web content manager/producer and manage the company's web production team in support of the company's website, network of blogs and social media efforts. If I could earn a living by traveling the world and doing photography, I would be a very happy camper! Note to guests: I will never extend an invitation to make a booking request to anyone who doesn't have his or her profile completed with 1) a personal photo (of yourself--not of the mountains or your dog or flowers or...), 2) some Airbnb verifications and 3) some personal information so that I have an idea of whom I might be inviting into my home. Please make sure of this BEFORE contacting me.
