Welcome

The Space

Welcome, Bienvenue, and Wilkommen to the Lower East Side of New York - the LES for short, where it all began in the U.S.

(SPANISH DESCRIPTION BELOW THE ENGLISH)

I'll give the details quickly so you can see what you will be able to experience on your trip to the Big Apple

• Very spacious loft apartment ( about 2000 square feet last measure - so BIG for New York) in the center of arguably the coolest area of the city (please do not argue ) , modern and minimalist furniture , no clutter and very clean ( that goes for the host too)

• Your own private bedroom - spacious Queen Bed (with an extra mattress if needed), linens, towels, TV, Dresser, Wardrobe, DVD player, Bose iPod speaker system.

• Your own private bathroom - Jacuzzi Bath, Shower, Hairdryer, Kohler fixtures. All the shampoo and things you will ever need. Only to be used by you.

• Large kitchen - Large , open plan with everything you need to design a gourmet feast, GE appliances , stainless steel counter top . Make any food you want - if it is really good, give me some. Make coffee there in the morning (Bustelo - the best there is).

• Large living room, fireplace, WIFI, HDTV, Bose sound system, the best choice in music (in my opinion, most not consulted). Sit.... Enjoy

• Large dining area - seats lots, great views over the city and over the Williamsburg Bridge. Eat foods mentioned above (probably while seated, although one can never be sure).

• Natural brick walls (as opposed to unnatural I suppose) and a lovely Merbeau wooden floor, both of which look good (but don't say much).

• Floor to ceiling windows throughout - bathed in sun (when the sun is out, mainly, of course)

• Outside seating area and balcony - you can access directly from your room - very private (sometimes I can not find it)

• Full air conditioning / heating in the room - be hot, be cool (probably one at a time)

• Washer / dryer - for use

• Keyed Private elevator entrance (or stairs if u have the energy - does not seem so popular strangely)

• Printer / Scanner available. Pens and paper too, if you are a traditionalist (although we draw the (email hidden) markers or camel hair brushes, I'm sure you understand). And there is a universal power adapter for you to use to charge your gadgets too.

• The building is a very smart development, a recently renovated 7-story apartment, brick facade, good views of the city skyline and so on

• 3-minute walk from local subways F , M , J , Z , B or D subway lines ( Delancey and Grand St ), 7 minute walk to the 6 train ( Spring St). Surrounded by buses to every corner of the city.

We also have bikes if you want (used less than they should be!) And are within walking distance of almost everything that matters in Manhattan!

This is a very large and comfortable space that you will be free to enjoy as you wish (this is your holiday after all). Books, music (great as mentioned above), Cable TV up the kazoo, or just relax and chat. Up to you.

Located in the heart of the LES - food (some of the best in the city), drink, fun, shopping all very, very closes. Nearly opposite the Tenement Museum (which is really great). One of the most historic neighborhoods in the U.S. (Perhaps the most). TV, Film and general interest media all the time (become a star - or an extra anyway) , music clubs and comedy left right and center and Alphabet City, Ludlow Street , East Village, Chinatown and Soho all in spitting distance - and I can not spit far.

3 blocks from a Whole Foods and a couple of blocks from the Essex Street Market.

I hope everything is covered - email if you need more information, course. I hope to see you soon and I hope I can be part of your visit to this great place.

-------------------------------

I wanted to add some notes as people have recently asked me about these specific issues.

My calendar is always updated, so if the apartment listed as available, then it definitely is.

In terms of pricing, once you enter the dates and number of guests and so on, Airbnb will give you an accurate quote and show all costs to you including all Airbnb fees and I always keep that up to date also.

I do not charge for cleaning unless you specifically want me to, of course. I think this a little unfair and the place is always really clean as a matter of course.

Regarding the interaction with guests, - you can have as much or as little as you like - monastic like silence or a plethora of conversations and recommendations on what to do and where to go.

Have a (email hidden) I've written showing some good places that I like (you will find it on the buttons above the pictures - at the Maps button, between the photo and calendar buttons)

Some rules:

• No shoes in the apartment

• No smoking in the apartment (use the balcony, please), no drugs, no entertaining guests

• $ 30.00 for lost keys

• Only do things that your mother would be proud of

• Must enjoy yourself - no excuses

====================================

Bienvenido, Bienvenue, y Wilkommen al Lower East Side de Nueva York - la LES para abreviar, donde todo comenzó en los EE.UU.

Aqui les doy detalles para que pueda ver lo que usted lo que va y quiere disfrutar en su viaje a la Gran Manzana.

• Muy amplio apartamento loft ( aproximadamente 2,000 pies cuadrados última medida - muy grande para un apartamento en Nueva York ). En el centro de posiblemente el área más divertida de la ciudad, muebles moderno y minimalisto , comodo y muy limpio (y los huespedes también).

• Su propio dormitorio privado - , Cama tamaño queen (colchon extra para extra persona), cubre cama , toallas, closet, TV, reproductor de DVD, bocina Bose iPod.

• Amplio salón-comedor , chimenea , WIFI, televisión de alta definición , sistema de sonido Bose, la mejor opción en la música (en mi opinión , la mayoría no consultado ) . Siéntese .... disfrute

• Gran comedor , grandes vistas sobre la ciudad y sobre el puente de Williamsburg. Coma alimentos mencionados anteriormente (probablemente mientras se está sentado , aunque uno nunca puede estar seguro) .

• Las paredes de ladrillo naturales ( opuesto a no natural, supongo) y un precioso suelo de madera merbeau , los cuales se ven bien (pero no dicen mucho ) .

• Ventanas de piso a techo en todas partes - bañado en sol ( cuando el sol está fuera, sobre todo, por supuesto)

• Balcon con muebles que queda al lado de tu habitacion - se puede acceder directamente desde su habitación - muy privado ( a veces no puedo encontrarlo)

• Aire acondicionado. Mantente fría o con calor. (probablemente uno a la vez )

• Lavadora / secadora - para su uso

• Con clave entrada del ascensor privado (o escaleras si tienes la energía - no parece tan popular extrañamente )

• Impresora / Escáner disponible. Bolígrafos y papel también, si usted es un tradicionalista (aunque trazamos la línea en los marcadores verdes o cepillos de pelo de camello , estoy seguro de que entiende ) . Y hay un adaptador de corriente universal para que usted utilice para cargar tus gadgets también.
El edificio es solo de tan solo tiene un 7 pisos recientemente renovado , fachada de ladrillo , buenas vistas del horizonte de la ciudad

• 3 minutos a pie del metro locales F, M , J , Z , B o D líneas de metro ( Delancey y Grand St ) , 7 minutos a pie hasta el tren 6 ( Spring St ) . Rodeado de autobuses a todos los rincones de la ciudad.

También disponemos de bicicletas si quieres (utilizado menos de lo que debería ser! ) Y está a poca distancia a pie de casi todo lo que importa en Manhattan !

Esta es una muy grande y confortable espacio que usted será libre para disfrutar a su gusto ( se trata de vacaciones después de todo) . Libros , música ( grande como se mencionó anteriormente ), TV por cable hasta el kazoo , o simplemente relajarse y charlar . Depende de usted .

Situado en el corazón de la LES - restaurantes ( algunos de los mejores de la ciudad) , bebida , diversión, compras todo muy. Casi enfrente del Museo Tenement (que es realmente grande ) . Uno de los barrios con más historia de los EE.UU. ( Tal vez la mayoría) . TV, cine y medios de comunicación de interés general todo el tiempo ( convertido en una estrella - o un extra de todos modos) , clubes de música y comedia de la izquierda derecha y centro y la ciudad del alfabeto , Ludlow Street, East Village , Chinatown y SOHO todos sumamente cerquita

A 3 cuadras del supermecado Whole Food y un par de cuadras de la Essex Street Market .

Espero que todo está cubierto - correo electrónico si usted necesita más información, por supuesto. Espero verte pronto y espero que pueda ser parte de su visita a este gran lugar.

-------------------------------

Yo quería añadir algunas notas como personas me han preguntado recientemente sobre estos temas concretos.

Mi calendario está siempre actualizado , así que si la vivienda aparece como disponible , entonces definitivamente lo es.

En términos de precios , una vez que entras las fechas y el número de invitados y demás, Airbnb te dará un presupuesto preciso y mostrar todos los costos para usted , incluyendo todos los gastos Airbnb y siempre mantener que hasta la fecha también .

Yo no cobro por la limpieza a menos que desee que yo , por supuesto. Creo que este un poco injusto y el lugar es siempre muy limpio como una cuestión de rutina .

En cuanto a la interacción con los clientes - se puede tener tanto o tan poco como desee - monástica como el silencio o una gran cantidad de conversaciones y recomendaciones sobre qué hacer y dónde ir .

Echa un vistazo a guía de la zona que he escrito mostrando algunos buenos lugares que más me gustan ( lo encontrarás en los botones encima de las imágenes - en el botón Maps, junto al botón Vista de la calle )

Algunas reglas :

• No hay zapatos en el apartamento

• No fumar en el apartamento ( usar el balcón , por favor) , no drogas , no entretener a los invitados

• $ 30.00 para las llaves perdidas

• Sólo hacer las cosas que su madre estaría orgullosa de

• Debe disfrutar - sin excusas

Guest Access

The only room that is private is my bedroom. Otherwise mi casa su casa. And your bathroom and bedroom are private to you, of course.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you want - monk-like silence or suggestions and recommendations easily forthcoming all up to you - (email hidden) to the area I have written on the site and print that for reference if you wish.

  • Thanks Carol and Marc for making my weeklong stay pleasant and wonderful. The apartment is exactly like the pictures and description - welcoming, comfortable, and exceptionally spacious, especially for NYC. Conveniently located at the heart of the Lower East Side, the apartment is a stone throw away from the city's finest restaurants and galleries. If I happened to stay in other neighbourhoods, I'd have to take the train back to LES for all the fun and excitement here.

    Also, transit is really convenient. The M15 bus is just right outside the door, which runs all the way from North to South; I took the F train the most because it goes through LES, Soho, West Village, Midtown and beyond. There's also the J train that goes to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

    Carol and Marc were very thoughtful to provide me with a long list of neighbourhood establishments in great details and from a local perspective. That had been very helpful to me and guided to many hidden gems in LES. Another bonus for staying in this neighbourhood is to be surrounded by the lovely architecture of classic tenement houses, which is very different from the midtown skyscrapers, and even nicer (in my personal opinion).

    I enjoyed the great conversation with Carol and Marc and learned more about the city with their local insights. I strongly recommend their apartment to any travellers who wish for an authentic NY experience.

  • Carol & Marc, their apartment, and the location, all made our 5 day New York visit a wonderful experience. Carol and Marc were perfect hosts, always helpful and sweet and really made us feel welcome. The apartment is great, really spacious and you have walking distance to pretty much everything you need to do in Manhattan. If your feet fail you, there is a subway station only a few minutes away. The room is nice, the bed comfortable and having a private bathroom gives a sense of luxury. Me and my wife will definitely stay here again when we visit NY in the future.

  • My wife and I stayed with Carol and Mark for 3 nights and it was everything we were hoping for. The apartment was well outfitted with everything we needed for our stay including helpful hints to getting around as well as neighborhood hot spots. The apartment itself is large with a well appointed private bedroom and spacious private bathroom. Mark and Carol were both very helpful with at check in and with pointers on getting around. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

  • Everything was PERFECT! For us it was the first time using Air B&B and a total success. The pictures from Carol and Marc are exactly how it is in real life. We had our own room with bathroom and terrace. We stood in New York for 10 days and enjoyed our time with the host. We felt like home. If we had any question they helped out and gave us perfect information about the neighborhood and the city. But the most important thing is that they are two wonderful people how made our stay memorable and complete. We are happy to meet them and can just recommend the place. Thanks Carol and Marc!

    June 2014

  • This is the place to stay if you are visiting New York. The location is perfect!! You can catch the D subway to Central Park or Empire State Building. Right outside their door you can catch the M15 bus to the Ferry and see the Statue of Liberty or take the bus to the Freedom Tower/911 Memorial. If you need help Carol will be right there to assist you in getting on the right train or subway. Her husband Mark will hold you in great conversations and they know where all the good restaurant and bars are for you to try. Take the doughnut recommendation! These are extremely good people making your stay enjoyable and relaxing. The room has your own TV which is nice for relaxing and the queen sized bed is comfortable. The room has a balcony, we enjoyed sitting out their with a book and drink. You also have your own private bath with a large shower. If we are ever in New York this is where we will stay. You can not find nicer host than this who make you feel comfortable and help guide you around the city. You will not be disappointed staying here.

  • Un appartement, une situation dans Manhattan et des hôtes exceptionnels! 6 jours inoubliables grâce aux conseils de Carol et Marc! Les excellentes adresses pour bruncher, les petits conseils pratiques, la salle de bain privative, le confort de la chambre, le wifi, le salon spacieux et chaleureux font que nous aurions aimé y rester plus longtemps... De plus, Carol et Marc ont toujours pris le temps de répondre à nos questions pour que nous puissions vivre le meilleur séjour possible à NYC! Nous recommandons cette adresse vivement!
