Occupying the entire second floor of a 19th century townhouse (approximately 850 sqft/80 meters indoors, another 250 sqft outdoors), our quiet and bright loft style apartment is ideal for a single or a couple who want to be in a very central location (5 to 8 minute walk to the 6, N, R, L, F Subway lines) but to avoid the hustle and bustle of Midtown Manhattan.
Unusually for New York, the apartment features a huge south facing private back deck (grill included) where you can spend some beautiful afternoons.
The apartment currently includes a flat screen TV, stereo, espresso machine (and coffee grinder), a newly renovated fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, induction range, electric kettle, an oven and a range hood, full bath recently renovated to include a rainfall style shower head, very high speed internet (up to 100mbps), air conditioning, central heating and hot water.
Note that in past reviews you'll see that people describe our cat - he has moved with us and is no longer in the apartment since May 2013.
Rent is inclusive of all utilities and fees.
As many people have asked - the rent is for the entire apartment for your own use.
One or two guests only, no children as we have no window guards and no way to install them.
Smoking only on the deck.
Don't party too hard.
Please leave the place clean and organized, if anything breaks please let us know, we promise to be civil about it.

We felt like we were home as soon as we opened the door. All of the instructions about location, access and facilities were accurate. The apartment had a contemporary feel, and everything we needed was there. The rear balcony allowed us to enjoy outdoor space, and we loved the East Village neighbourhood.
We had a very pleasurable time here. Great apartment and location - an excellent base from which to launch forays into NYC, both into the East Village and beyond. Everything in the apartment was clean and well organized, and everything worked.
My girlfriend and I spent a week in here and we had a great time. The apartment is spacious, clean and in an excellent location. Our flight arrived late in the evening but we were met with keys no problem.
Ori also sent us an email with loads and loads of recommendations that we probably wouldn't have even known about - a nice touch.
We'd definitely come back again - just a shame the cat wasn't there :)
Ori gave us an fantastic itinerary including places to eat and drink locally. Suggestions we took up eagerly!
Lydia's communication and flexibility during our stay was very accommodating.
As for the location we were right in the thick of East Village surrounded by some of the best coffee, food and independent stores New York had to offer. My wife was amazed at the choice of local Yoga classes!

We are a professional couple in our 30s, based in New York. We own our own company that we can manage from anywhere in the world (provided there's good internet access), which allows us to travel extensively (and to rent out our own place via airbnb).
