Am new to airbnb, but have been subletting my home for short stints for years! Hosting visitors in NYC is always such a joy!

Amazing location right in the East Village with a short walk to the bus and subway system. Cozy apartment with plenty of room for two people. Communication was quick and effective - thanks Amelia!
The Cottage is in a quiet and safe location, away from traffic, facing beautiful courtyards in 2 directions. The apartment's living area faces south, with lots of light, nice big windows, and good air conditioning coming from the north-facing bedroom. It is comfortably large enough for 2 people, with a serviceable entry way (came in handy for removing wet garb after slogging through monsoon rains), kitchen, kitchen table with chairs, separate bedroom, and separate bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom have doors for privacy, which is a big plus! There also is a cozy nook for reading that includes a window, comfortable arm chair and cushion-covered chest. Typically, I would occupy the nook in the morning and evenings to deal with emails or read a book while my husband would work on his computer at the kitchen table. The bathtub works fine and the shower is strong. Restaurants and small grocers abound, Astor Place, Union Sq and Washington Sq are close by, and subways are within easy reach. Checking in and out arrangements were hassle-free. Amelia was a very attentive hostess and she can be proud of The Cottage. We would stay again!
Amelia and her sister were the perfect hosts. They accommodated both our arrival and departure times and did everything they could to make our stay pleasant. The flat was well presented and clean and everything worked. The best features for us were: the location, the quietness and the roof terrace which can be used in addition to the cute little back yard. We would not hesitate to stay again and would wholeheartedly recommend this host and her flat.
My Mum and I came to New York to celebrate her 60th birthday. First time in NY. We had an amazing time at Amelia's cottage. The flat is very cute, cozy, clean, welcoming in a really nice and exciting location in NY.
The neighborhood is great, we felt really safe, with loads of nice restaurants and bars, very close to the subway.
We are very grateful that Amelia gave us the opportunity to stay in her flat.
I am an independent filmmaker; makin' it work right here in downtown for the past nine years. I write, act and produce; both my work as well as for hire.
I love to travel- take time off to work a new script or visit friends and renting out my tiny cottage home for those stints helps make these important breaks possible.
When I'm not traveling, I'm enjoying the peace and quiet in my comfortable cozy home. I cook a lot, host friends for dinners and enjoy my outdoor space, all of which are amazingly suited for my freelance working from home type of business. I, of course, also, greatly enjoy all the perks that living centrally downtown in NYC has to offer; all the best movie theaters and restaurants are easy, pleasant and safe walking distance.
I'm an easy hands off host; I like to keep it simple. I love renting to other artists and people already familiar with all my neighborhood has to offer.
Thanks for having a look and best of luck choosing your home away from home!
