This is the perfect place for two people to stay for a great trip to the city. Bigger than most Manhattan hotel rooms, and with a lot more charm, too! Located directly on 14th Street, you're less than a 10 minute walk from Union Square and steps away from the East Village. Some of the best restaurants and bars in the whole city are very short walks. Great subway access, too.
Apartment is a studio with one bathroom that is very well furnished with a queen sized bed. Unit faces the back of the building, so street noise isn't an issue and the entire place is very quiet. HD flat screen TV, wireless internet, and all kitchen supplies will be here for you to use.
SE HABLA ESPANOL! SI ES MAS FACIL, POR FAVOR ESCRIBAME EN ESPANOL!
You'll have full access to the entire apartment. WiFi and TV are included. I provide fresh linens and towels, too. Just bring your suitcase!
Interaction with Guests
I can be there to greet you and show you around, but am also happy to leave the keys for you in a convenient location for pick-up. I'm always accessible via phone, text and e-mail during your stay.
There is no smoking of any kind inside the apartment and no pets.
We had a very pleasant stay in Brendan's flat. We were looking for a place a little away from the "tourist area" of Times square, and wanted to be more where "normal" New Yorkers live. We could not have chosen a better place. Allthough it is very easy to go to Midtown and all the New York attractions (Empire state building, Rockefeller center, the museums etc) from this area, it has something more: a genuine feel of New York life. There is a great local organic market many times a week, good local shops and restaurants and Wholefoods market - very useful to stock up on goodies! The area is only a short walk from great places like Washington square, Greenwich, Nolita, Chelsea, the High line etc, and the metro is very close and gets you anywhere in town: it took us an amazingly short time to come back by metro from anywhere in town, from north to south, including Brooklyn or Central Park. There are also buses which are very convenient. Right from the start, Brendan was extremely helpful, sending useful tips on how to get to the flat from the airport, where to eat and he provided us with an exhaustive information sheet on the apartment and the area. Also very flexible on arrival/departure time, which is very useful. The flat itself is nice, with wifi, and had everything we wanted: quiet, a super comfortable bed, a nice sofa to relax and a kitchen with all the basics to cook. We only had breakfast and occasionally took take-aways and ate at home, which is relaxing after a whole day walking in the city. Brendan was always available for queries and explanations, and has always been very prompt and friendly in his answers. I would definitely recommand this flat and area to feel at home while in New York.
Nice small studio apartment in the middle of all the crowds & excitement near Union Square. Everything is nearby. Easy access to subways & bus lines. Keys were sent to me in advance, making entry easy. Brendan answered all my emails when I had questions.
The apartment was just as discribed in the airbnb site. Everything was clean & the apartment was in a fantastic location. Getting around NYC was so easy you had a metro station on each corner. Brendan the host gave great info on the neighbourhood & surrounded areas. He was not in my face but available by phone for any questions or
problems. Great apartment Great stay & I
hope it will be available next time.
Brendan ha sido un anfitrión estupendo desde el primer momento. Siempre dispuesto a ofrecernos toda la información que necesitáramos ( cómo llegar, bares y restaurantes de la zona,etc ) . Nos hizo sentir muy cómodos en su casa y se le nota que le gusta recibir gente y hablar español.
El apartamento está situado en un sitio perfecto para moverse en NY. Es muy acogedor y tiene todo lo que se necesita para sentirse como en casa .
Muchas gracias por todo
We had a fantastic stay in Brendan's apartment. His communication was great from the get go, checking in went seamlessly the 'info' pack (laundry spots, restaurants etc) in the apartment had everything we needed. The apartment itself was perfectly located (we always try stay near Union Square as its a station that takes you everywhere) and it was spotlessly clean, great shower, super comfortable big bed, great little kitchen, and furniture that made it feel like a mini stately home in the heart on NYCs East Village. Highly recommend staying here!
Great place in a great location. My girlfriend and I just spent the week in NYC and had an amazing time. Brendan's studio was just what we were looking for. It was the perfect size for the two of us. It was clean and had everything we needed for the week. Brendan is an excellent host and his communication from the time we booked to the time we left was superb. He was easy to get a hold of and always responded in a timely manner. Thanks again Brendan, hope to be back in NYC soon.
El apartamento de Brendan es igual que en las fotos, incluso aun mas calido. Es perfecto para dos personas, pequeño pero super funcional y comodo. Esta limpio, ordenado, cuenta con TV por cable, wi fi.
La ubicacion es ideal, esta en una zona de bares, resto, a media cuadra del metro y a tres cuadras de Union Square. Tiene mucho movimiento, pero nada de turistas. Volvia a altas horas de la noche y siempre me senti super segura. Vivi una semana sientiendome parte de NYC. Sin lugar a dudas lo mejor que tiene el apartamento es su dueño, super cordial, atento y preocupado por brindar ayuda, informacion, responder cualquier inquitud pero sin ser invasivo. Habla perfecto español y se nota que le da placer que vayan a su ciudad y a su apartamento. Volveria a NYC y volveria a ir al apartamento de Brendan!
