About This Listing
View from Living area to kitchen, to Master Bedroom 1, to Secure Key-Access Elevator entrance
Perched comfortably above the hustle and bustle of Little Italy and Chinatown (North Corner of Mulberry and Canal Street), where the eastern edge of SoHo meets the edgy Lower East Side, guests step into the elevator and step out directly into the exposed brick and tin ceiling loft, of the most gigantic space among the many that I host.
Warning: the pictures fail to show the true enormity of the space!
Both of the two master bedroom suites, each with ensuite full baths, are large enough to be studio apartments in Manhattan! There is a further large bedroom in addition to two large living areas, dining area and modern open kitchen with breakfast bar and dishwasher, 3rd full bathroom and utility room with washer and dryer.
Want a massage after a day of traipsing through Manhattan? The second living/family room/den has a full-body massage chair!
Feel like cooking a big dinner or entertaining in a dramatic, wide open space? The main living/dining/kitchen area is approximately 1600sf on its own.
As with most of the other buildings surrounding the loft, this building once was one of many garment factories and warehouses located in this district. Today's Mulberry Street is home to fashion, creative, entertainment and high-tech businesses as well as residents.
Just below the corner loft's noise-eliminating double-glazed windows, the hustle and bustle of Mulberry and Canal Streets goes about daily life. The view outward from the loft feels as though you're sitting in a VIP box watching a show in a big arena. Except the arena is genuine, authentic NYC life. It doesn't get more real, as well as visually captivating.
On the comfort side of things, each of the bedrooms has brand new queen (large double) beds. One of the master suites has a brand new king (extra large double) size bed.
Furnishings are contemporary and appropriate for the space, as are the pictures and objet d'arts decorating the vast exposed-brick interior.
The modern kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, plates, utensils, substantial counter space...makes for great dinners at the big dining room table just beside.
There is a Bose SoundDock, plus 2 large flat screen tvs, one in each of the living areas.
Along with the 3 large bedrooms, there are also two fold-out sofabeds, each is a double.
Wireless Internet, cable TV and climate controlled central heating and AC are provided along with fresh towels and linens.

Host met us at the apt late in the evening and was very accommodating, giving us all the info we needed. The place was enormous by NYC standards and perfect for our stay. Very comfortable and clean. Location is great, just a little noisy but not much of a drawback in a city known for this. Thank you. Highly recommended.
The host was wonderful, the loft spectacular, location fantastic. We could not have dreamed of a more lovely home. The mattresses were so comfortable is was hard to get up in the morning. Every aspect of this place from furnishing, to ambiance, to host was above and beyond what we had hoped for. Will definitely stay here next year for even (website hidden), Terry, JR, Nan & Karen
Billy and Wally provided us with excellent customer service. Billy met us at the stated time of check in and checked us in with ease. The pictures did not do the place justice . It was simply fabulous. It was immaculate and the location was excellent. We had a fabulous time and will not hesitate to use this property again in the future.
The place was great. Lots of really good chinese food in the area. Perfect location for tourists wanting the real NYC experience. The loft itself was ideally sized for a couple and two teenagers who like their privacy. Much bigger than any other place weve stayed in NY. We were very happy here and would definitely come back.
An Extraordinary place, in an extraordinary location, rented by extraordinary hosts.
I will recommend it to friends.
Stayed 5 days and loved the location and the apartment. It's huge, especially by NYC standards, and very well decorated and laid out. The pictures and description are completely accurate. Walter and Billy were great hosts. Very attentive and reachable as needed. Was nice they let us keep it until late afternoon the last day.

About the Host, Billy, Larry And Wally
Blessed with our little girl Samantha, we strive to be better people everyday with the little things in life. We used to run thru the nightclubs and live the crazy lifestyle...we couldn't live without late night movies, the latest bar/lounge/club, being in "THE IT" crowd, running off to Paris or a quick trip to Vegas at a moments notice for a few days!
Funny, but we now get up at dawn and love to go to the Zoo, reading, although presently its all about Dr. Seuss's "Hop on Pop", and walking thru the city and exploring all the different neighborhoods. We enjoy going to ethnic restaurants and exploring tastes while exposing our girl to all NYC has to offer.
As we are a mixed couple, living within this diverse city gives us a sense of home that we cherish. We are a small family with a HUGE extended family that live in the New York and Maryland area and work hard developing our relationships with our family.
When we travel we appreciate a host that welcomes us like family, but stays out of our business. Thats what you can expect from us. We want to be available to you if you need, but otherwise, enjoy your privacy and have fun. We believe that being a good person is crucial and that good things happen to good people. That is what we are....good people.
