I enjoy sharing my home and two sweet cats with likeminded travelers. It was an experiment to open up to the universe and letting it in. Four years later, the exchange is still on.
PLEASE WRITE ME FIRST FOR AVAILABILITY BEFORE MAKING RESERVATION REQUEST. Please also note that for the April-May dates, I'm looking for travelers that can stay for 3 weeks or more please. Thank you!
Bright one bedroom apartment with balcony in hip Lower Eastside of Manhattan. Steps away from great restaurants, galleries, and shops. Walking distance to Chinatown, East Village, Little Italy, Nolita & Soho. F train stops 1 block away, B/D train 3 blocks away. Many bus stops nearby.
You will have the apartment all to yourself. It's fully furnished with everything you need for the comfort of home while in the middle of a vital downtown scene. Hardwood floor, impeccably clean and compact. Japanese style futon bed. Air conditioners in both living room and bedroom. Free WiFi. Elevator. Laundry in the same building. But please note I do not have a TV.
You'll share this home with two sweet loving cats named Smeagol and Stinker. They are both very affectionate and will want to interact with you. So cat lovers are a must please. And I would ask you to feed them and clean the litter box while you are staying here, for this reason I charge a much lower rate for my place. You can search and see that most other one-bedroom non-share-apartments in the LES cost 50% or more. Please apply only if staying with my cats will be a plus for you. Current cat owners are strongly favored as you would be familiar with feline habits, and be comfortable staying here.
The apartment accommodates 2 people, possibly 3-4 (I have a second futon). For the April-May dates, I prefer travelers that can take the whole month, and will give discount. PLEASE WRITE ME BEFORE MAKING ANY RESERVATIONS. So we can find out more about each other to make sure we are a good fit. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at Jennifer's place. She was a lovely host and the cats very also nice, well behaving companionship. The apartment is very well located, nice restaurants at a walking distance, and subway at a convenient distance to reach the center uptown. I would happily suggest anyone to stay at her place for a great stay at NY.
Jennifer has a nice home she's very professional with her tenants. Everything was clean and tidy as we moved in.
The cats are cute and fun to play with just be sure you want to deal with cats in small space, it takes some extra time to take care of cleaning. That's why it's a more reasonable rent.
The area is nice with lots of Galleries and great Restaurants and shops nearby. The building is very quiet and well kept from a really nice Super.
Jennifer was a great host. Unfortunately, we couldn't meet, but she took care of everything and replied to all our emails as soon as she could. King, the super, helped a lot, too! The apartment is clear, well furnished and the cats are so nice! We really had a great stay. Can't wait to come back!
We needed somewhere reasonably priced and homely for a three-week stay in New York, and found it here in Jen's beautiful clean and light apartment, with her two adorable cats.
We loved staying here - very close and convenient to a subway station, just around the corner from very vibrant and trendy parts of town, and nice and quiet to get a good night's rest in.
Couldn't recommend this more highly. Jen is great to deal with, and so professional. Her doorman is also very welcoming and accommodating.
We'd definitely stay here again if we got the chance.
Jennifer is a fantastic host! Her Assistant Marianna has been available for everithing during our staying. The apartment is situated very close to subway station. The two cats Made our journey really funny, we played and cuddeled them, Also slept with them! We definitively recommend Jennifer place to everybody Who is in love with cats! We were Sad to leave them as they have been an important part of our holiday.
Once again, thank you so much Jennifer
Nice and lovely apartment. Spacious and clean. Bed is a futon, but very comfortable.
The 2 cats are great and very well behaved.
Location is perfect. subway stop is 2 minutes walk away. there are shops and restaurants very close by (we loved the Fat Radish!) and the main "going out" area in lower east side is about 4-5 blocks away, which is brilliant!
The street and surrenders are safe; a bit noisy on the early morning when local shops vans bring their products, but nothing (website hidden)'s Manhattan!!
Jennifer and Marianna where very helpful with everything and made our stay very easy. not a problem getting the keys and leaving the apartment.
Overall a great experience and very happy with everything.
A great apartment in a fantastic location! The perfect way to see NYC - clean, spacious and the two loving cats made it feel very homely. Close to transport, excellent restaurants and thriving nightlife.
Jennifer was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be staying here again!
I'm a visual artist and I travel frequently for exhibitions and projects. While I'm away, I like knowing that my place is enjoyed by like-minded travelers, and that my sweet kitties have company.
