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!
Seth and Aaron
Really incredible experience. Aaron is one of the nicest people that has ever hosted me for airbnb. The room was perfect, comfortable bed, big desk, and quite!
He also makes world class cocktails! Couldn't write up a better airbnb host.
Aaron was very hospitable and accommodating. The apartment was very clean and in a great location with many restaurants and cafe/bar type places around and incredibly easily accessible by public transit. The area is very safe as well. Even though our schedules didn't match up to see each other in person Aaron was either a text or a phone call away for any help or advice of things to do and see. I'd suggest staying here to anyone and would definitely stay there again myself!
What a great way to start off my New York Fashion Week experience. Aaron's place in the East Village was in a word... Perfect. The photos, description, and the hospitality were perfectly on point. I will definitely be coming back to this Airbnb. Fantastically worth it. Aaron you ROCK!!!
Aaron was a great host--he offered to let me come early (for free) to get in ahead of a major blizzard and also helped me find a great local bar. The place is great, in a nice quiet part of the village.
Perfect sized room with great day light and view! Aaron's a great host, easy to get a long with and keeps his place nice and clean. Thanks man! Maybe see you in Nola during tales of the cocktail!
We were very happy with Aaron the host, he was very helpful with some tips & advice on things to do. The space was accurate and most suitable for our needs. The neighbourhood was great with plenty of things to do & go within walking distance including the Subway.
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,
