The apartment is just adorable, and located on one of the NYC's best streets! Steps from amazing shopping, dining and nightlife! You can't beat the location, and the studio itself is clean and cute. A perfect NYC studio experience!
This is a spacious studio in the heart of the East Village. Steps to Tompkins Square Park. There are countless restaurants, cafes, bars and nightlife surrounding the apartment. It is located on the 3rd floor of a 6 story walk-up building on a quiet and beautiful street with tons of great shops and dining. Literally one of the best low-key blocks in lower Manhattan.
Transportation: 5 Minute walk to 14th street L strain at 1st avenue. 5 Minute walk to Astor place 6 train. 12 minute walk to Union Square L456NQR trains to anywhere in the city. 20 minutes walk/train to Grand Central or Times Square.
Our favorite part about the east village is that you can walk to all the best neighborhoods of lower Manhattan. Lower East Side, Chinatown, Soho, Nolita, Little Italy and Gramercy.
The apartment is furnished with an extra comfy queen size bed and a Futon sofa that folds down into a bed with room for 2 in each! Note: The apartment is definitely best for 1 or 2 but can certainly sleep 3 or 4, although longer stays may get cramped. There is a spacious bathroom and full kitchen with dishwasher. This is by no means a large apartment but certainly large for an NYC studio!
The apartment is very very clean with all new furniture/mattress and linens! Plenty of fresh towels and linens provided as well.
Anyways, ask me anything! I love to help with travel and fun city tips!
Many people ask about the price with fees and extra costs etc along with how to make payment etc. When you enter the dates you would like to stay into the site along with the number of people, it will return the total cost (including the cleaning fee). There are no taxes or extra fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price. The security deposit will be returned to you 48 hours after you check out as long as you leave the place in decent condition. So far we have never had to keep any of the deposits.
All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day after you check in and will then transfer it to us. This ensures that the apartment is there when you arrive and prevents fraud etc. Thanks!
TOTAL ACCESS!! The kitchen and bath are fully stocked for your enjoyment:)
Interaction with Guests
I usually only see you to give you keys and will not be present at all during your stay. But of course I am always close by if you need anything at all! :)
The East Village is one of the most amazing, eclectic and eccentric neighborhood in New York. It is totally central, and has great access to public transit to go anywhere you want to go in the city!
Trains in every direction! The apartment is walking distance to tons of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and shopping. And their are taxi's available on every corner!
Other Things to Note
This exact street has been voted New York City's "New Yorkiest" streets three years in a row! You'll find everything you need and want on this one city block:)
We leave a detailed set of house rules in the apartment for everyone, as well as plenty of neighborhood recommendations and all of my contact info!
My friend and I just stayed in Melissa's East Village apartment for 6 nights and we were thrilled with the experience. We didn't actually meet Melissa, but she was always available to answer any questions. The size was just right for the two of us - one of us slept in the very comfortable bed, and the other on the pulled out futon. The apartment was exactly as pictured, and spotlessly clean. New York is an expensive city, so it was great to have a little kitchen where we could cook one meal a day at home to save money. We really loved the neighbourhood, so many great restaurants, bars, and shops nearby, and it was easy to walk to most of the places we wanted to visit in Manhattan. If I was to go back to NYC I'd definitely stay in Melissa's place again!
We had a great time at Melissas appartment in East Village! The appartment was exactly as shown in her pictures and the best spot to go anywhere. Furthermore, it was easy to communicate with Melissa, also because she was really fast in replying.
Melissa was a great host. She was incredibly speedy with responses to any questions or requests and she let us check in earlier than normal which was so helpful for us.
The apartment is adorable and convenient.
Melissa was so lovely and accommodating. My mother stayed here and the apartment is exactly as pictured, and in a great neighborhood!
We spent 9 days in Melissa's appartment and we really enjoyed!!!! The appartment was exactly as described on the web site: very good situation, neighborhood with a lots of good restaurant, subway at 7min by walk... not so quiet but it's NYC ;)
Melissa was very convenient for our late arrival, available for advices...so we recommand this appartment for your future trip!!!
It was my first experience with airbnb. Nice apartment, exactly as shown, well located and functional. Kitchen and bathroom very clean, bed and couch comfortables. no luck for us.. the stairs were being renovated and then noisy early in the morning.
Melissa is very helpful and very responsive by email or by phone. She was very accommodating for the luggages. Thanks a lot.
Melissa was very accommodating. Communication was ideal, and she went so far as to allow us to check in an hour earlier than we expected. The apartment is in a great neighborhood, and is exactly as shown. Would stay there again.

Hello! I am a photographer living in NYC... I love to travel and spend a lot of time on the road. I have had great experiences using airbnb as a traveler myself, so I decided to list my spaces here as well... ask me anything! :)
