The Space

We are an artist couple who often travel out of town and would like to host people while we are out of town.

This is a very special place, but it is not a hotel, I hope to have people who are creative, easy going and knows how to appreciate it. If you expect service the way you expect at hotels, not use to american standard or particularly likes super clean and new things, please don't book our place.

It can sleep four people who are close and comfortable with each other between one separate large bedroom and large living room. A queen size bed and full size sofa bed in the bedroom, single size futon on tatami and queen size sofa bed in the living room. This will make a free style sleeping arrangement for up to 6 people, but comfortable for maximum 4.

Perfect for a couple or single person who likes space although family of 4 enjoyed staying for a long term sublet.

Our loft is a perfect home for people who is visiting New York and have a taste of life here, relaxing, cooking and doing laundry (washer and dryer in the room which is rare in new york) at home instead of staying in a small hotel rooms and always going out.

It is filled with sunlight from floor to ceiling windows on the east side with huge view of Empire State building!

windows from four directions (west, north and sky light), it's spacious, magical glass box in the middle of Manhattan.

Perfect kitchen for cooking with gas, oven, and large refrigerator.

Simple bathroom with a bathtub (one person has reviewed about low shower pressure, but we replace the pump and it's all good now! )

Central heating, AC equipped and high speed wifi INTERNET.

You will be surprised how quiet is the room considering you are in the middle of Manhattan. Perfect for Yoga and Meditation.

Panorama window 20 feet ceiling 600 square feet wooden floor living room.

It's top floor of non elevator building.

No smoke, No shoes, No parties in the house please

  • Great place to see. Really huge. Clean. Very well located, easy to reach Time Square, Central Park or if motivated the financial district walking. Lots of restaurants around. Awesome in one word

  • Place was awesome! Mai left us extra towels and pulled out all the couches and beds before we walked through the door! The location was perfect and we found a quick and easy way around the subway entrance a block away!

  • La experiencia fué adecuada con el anfitrión, facilitó todas las situaciones como early check in y late check out. Respondió siempre todas las consultas. Ante un pequeño problema llegó de inmediato su asistente para solucionarlo.
    El departamento es tal cual como se describe en la web: luminoso, con espacio y muy muy bien ubicado.

  • The apartment was spacious and clean, laundry facilities in basement were very useful travelling . Beds comfortable and plenty of clean linen. Location was great for exploring cityyour house is wonderful, warm, perfect, very convenient.

  • Loft is spacious with nice views and lots of light. The beds are comfortable and the location is great. It's probably as good as you're going to get in Chelsea for the price. The decor is mostly mis-matched garage sale finds, and the walls and flooring could do with some re-finishing. It is not exactly squeaky-clean either, but adequate. The stairs are killer, though. I feel bad to have inflicted that climb on my friend who has asthma. Probably not a good choice for most seniors. Otherwise, go for it!

  • Mai's apartment was a great size and in a wonderful location looking out and seeing the Empire State Building was really special. The apartment was clean and warm - the five flights walk up was a bit of a struggle with the luggage we'd accumulated but once we'd got everything in it didn't bother us. Shower pressure was great for us and it was good for a family with teenagers don't know if I'd like sleeping on a bed on the floor but it it was ok for a 16 yr old. Thanks Mai!

  • Apartment is in central location in Manhattan. Easy access to mostly everything. We fell in love with the cats in the flower shops on street level. Apartment consists of one bedroom, a main room as sitting/dining area, a small kitchen and a bathroom. It is bright and sunny with 3 beds. Mai was extremely nice to add a room divider for us in the main room. It is a five story walk up which could be challenging at times. Overall, very enjoyable experience. And Mai is a great host, super responsive. We will rent again from Mai next time. Thanks, Mai.

  • Mai's apartment is great in a wonderful location which we enjoyed very much, especially during the day. For better sleep in the living room we recommend earplugs and an eye mask for people used to darker rooms. Otherwise everything was perfect and Mai has a really nice assistant in town for any questions and queries that come up. We also strongly recommend Waldy's Pizza Place across the street that deserves the award of NY's best pizza!
    Thanks a lot Mai and Carina!

  • Mai was a great host, with a spacious apartment.

    The front door lock is a little tricky, and had some inital trouble getting into the apartment, but we got it after a few trys.

    The spacious, five floor walk up is in a great location to explore the entire city, and the five flights of stairs was a great way to work off all the pizza we were eating!

    The apartment slept three of us and many, many, many shopping bags - with everything you could need for a long or short stay to the city! only one block from the Subway, it was easy to get both up and downtown.
    Chelsea is a great area, and as three girls that stayed we all felt super safe around the area both day and night.

    A Starbucks across the road, and food market just down the street, everything you need is so close by..

    The view from the apartment, and the rooftop of the empire state building and 6th avenue is pretty special and reminds you daily that you are in the greatest city on earth.

    The only downside to Mai's fantastic apartment was the shower pressure wasn't great, but it was definitely bareable!

    Mai did all she could to make our stay as comfortable as possible, as I would recommend the apartment to anyone wanting to experience 'living' in the city, and not in a cramped hotel!

  • Mai's place was centrally located to many locations. The place was clean and spacious. She was super responsive to our text messages and very helpful in making sure we had what we needed. Looking forward to our next visit.
