About this listing
An adorable studio located on one of NYC's "new yorkiest" streets! The apartment is cute, clean, and comfortable. Steps from amazing shopping, dining and nightlife- you are sure to get the authentic New York City experience you are looking for!
This is a spacious studio in the heart of the East Village, just steps to Tompkins Square Park. 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. Countless restaurants, cafes, bars and nightlife surround the apartment in fact, making it one of the best low-key blocks in lower Manhattan.
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! There is a spacious bathroom with a full sized bathtub and great shower pressure, and a 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.
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.
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.
Feel free to ask me anything else! 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 bedroom, kitchen and bath are fully equipped and ready for you to use!
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! :)

Hello! I am a photographer who pops between coasts for work... 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! :)
