About This Listing
This clean and oh-so-comfortable bedroom is the quintessential city home! It comfortably sleeps two, and has space for all of your belongings, and two hosts who are eager to share their little chunk of the city with you!
This amazing East Village apartment has 2 bedrooms (we're renting 1), a bathroom, a gorgeous kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove, oven, microwave, and plenty of prep space, if cooking is your thing, and a pour-over coffee setup and an espresso machine. Our style just came together, but I guess we call it urban rustic—think stainless with dark wood, tons of sunlight, and a few pretty cool pieces on the walls. Every shelf was hand-finished by yours-truly, and our dining table was built by a friend.
We're both bartenders, read more about us in our profile! We'd love to be your great guide around the City. Us aside (and there will usually be only one of us, if either, in the apartment at once), we have Netflix, Hulu+, Wifi, Hifi, a 50" TV, fresh towels and sheets for you, and most importantly, a place you can come home to during your stay. There's a great and fast laundry dropoff service a block away, and several grocery stores as well.
We live in an amazing vibrant neighborhood that's, above all, safe, and brimming with personality. During the day there are plenty of families out, and at night, there is no shortage of incredible places to grab a drink. We live in the epicenter of the world's cocktail scene, a 5 minute walk from PDT, Death and Co, Amor y Amargo, The Wayland, and a 10 minute walk from the subway that will take you to some of the finest restaurants in the world, serving all cuisines and budgets. The apartment is half a block from Tompkins Square Park, a great place for people-watching and catching some shade during the summer. The M9 bus, also near us, is a straight shot to Chinatown and the Financial district, and the M14 will take you to the Union Square, the Meatpacking District and the West Village.
We love pointing people around to experience a "day in the life," and would love for you to stay here and maximize your time in New York!

The East Village is a wonderful place for you to enjoy the city! We're so excited to tell you about the restaurants and bars, and where to go for your shopping, museum, and exploring New York needs! From Tompkins Square Park, to the Highline, to the bagel shops, to the cafes and restaurants, the life of a local is only a few steps away!
Subways are only 10 minutes away, and buses are just two minutes away. Tell us where you're going, and we'll tell you how to get there!
All of our rules (and there aren't many of them!) are in the house manual!
Please do remember when you come in: let the door close gently behind you when coming in.
Also, please don't worry about cleaning the apt; we'll take care of all of that.
Thanks again for staying here!

The place is in a perfect location for a NYC weekend. Many cool restaurants and bars around it !
Great apartment really in the heart of east village, nestled next to tompkins square.
Great temperature in the apartment, nice selection of liquors to tipple on.
Saw Aaron briefly, nice guy who gave some good tips about the area.
Would recommend to those wanting to explore east village on a budget.
Aron is a very warm and welcoming host. He's friendly and polite. The place is on the 5th floor without elevator so if u have a lot of luggage you might want to know. We also faced a sporadic water problem in the housea few times. Other than that the neighbourhood is awesome with lots of great options to eat and party!
Very simply, an excellent Airbnb experience, The apartment is in a very cool, vibrant neighborhood on the lower east side. The space itself is exactly as described and very comfortable, and everything I needed and/or was expecting was there for me.
Equally excellent was Aaron, the host. He was engaging, but not overly in my business. He also very regularly made a point to ask how everything was, if I needed anything, and basically just made sure my stay was great as I was expecting--he even came thought on a fairly serious beard incident I was involved in (thanks again for the assist!).
I've been very fortunate over the years and have had some really great hosts. Aaron, because of his stellar customer service skills and desire to make your stay truly excellent, has moved to the head of the "host" pack--he's now the one to beat. I'll definitely be back!
Listing was accurate And the location was perfect for my needs. Aaron was nice too
Aaron was a great host. I met him several times in the apartment and he was always friendly. I also texted him several times for advice and suggestions for places to eat in the area, and he gave me excellent choices. His apartment is great -- all the pictures are accurate. And the location is top-notch. So many to do in so little time.
About the Host, Aaron
Or, Seth! We're both bartenders who've worked at some of New York's finest drinking and dining establishments. Hospitality is a major part of our work and who we are, so we want you to feel at home. We have a deep liquor cabinet that we're happy to share with our guests and an amazing kitchen that we'd love for you to use, maybe after an afternoon at the nearby farmer's market!
We usually work at night, and only one of us is in town at the same time, so you'll have the apartment to yourself most of the time.
The East Village is a safe and vibrant neighborhood, full of creatives and characters of all kinds. There is never a dull moment. Nightlife is our livelihood and one of our passions, so whether you're looking to go to one of the hundreds of bars, restaurants and clubs within walking distance of the apartment, or explore the rest of the City and Brooklyn, you will have a great guide.
After a good night out the neighborhood has many recovery options. Organic juice bars, free Yoga classes, a beautiful park and the best coffee and brunch places in town. There are also same day laundry services and plenty of new and vintage clothing stores, if you happened to misplace some of yours the previous night.
Given the pace of The City's nightlife and our work in it we treat our courtyard-facing, sunny apartment as a sanctuary of sorts. A quiet place to relax and escape. There are no shortage of places to party so the apartment is never one.
Your bedroom has an air conditioner, a closet, a full-sized bed (that's almost too comfy to get out of), and an industrial sewing machine for repairing any travel related clothing mishaps. Clean sheets and towels are provided and we will try to accommodate any other requests you may have.
Here's to meeting you soon,
