Description

The Space

The Lower East Side of New York, the LES!, where America began.

I'll give you all the details below so you will see all that you can experience in my loft on your trip to the Big Apple - there are lots of things you will love when you get here , so read on all the way to the end of the description if you are able - it is well worth it.

• Very spacious loft apartment ( about 2000 sq feet , 188 sq M, at last measure - so BIG for New York) in the center of arguably the coolest area of the city (please do not argue ) , modern , minimalist furniture , very open, very clean, I take great pride in having a spotless living environment ( that goes for the host too). A Massive space that gets flooded with light via a wall of windows. Just take a look at the pictures.

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

• Your own private bedroom - Queen Bed (with an extra mattress if needed), linens, towels, Large Flat Screen TV, Wardrobe, Bose iPod speaker system. Again only to be used by you.

• Large kitchen - Open concept with an area to eat and with everything you need to design a gourmet feast, top of the line GE appliances, Microwave, Toaster, Kettle , Dishwasher, stainless steel counter top etc. Make any food you want - if it is really good, give me some. Make coffee there in the morning - always available -- you have your very own little coffee bar (Bustelo coffee of course).

• Very large living room, Real Fireplace, WiFi, Surround sound HDTV with HDMI hook-up , Bose sound system with iPhone/iPod hook-up, 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 private seating area and balcony - you access directly from your room - very private (sometimes I can not find it)

• Full air conditioning / heating in the room and in rest of loft - be hot, be cool (mot likely one at a time)

• Bosch Washer and Dryer - for you to use - we like to reserve that for guests who stay for 3 nights or longer - being kind to the world too, we try to use cold water as well where possible.

• Keyed Private elevator entrance directly into Loft - of course you have your own key (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 line at camel hair brushes, I'm sure you understand). And there is a universal power adapter for you to use to charge your gadgets too.

• 3-minute walk from 6 local subways : F and M and J and Z and B and D lines, 7 minute walk to the 6 line . Surrounded by buses to every corner of the city. Get to EVERY area of NY easily - Brooklyn is right next to us on the subway for example. We also have FREE bikes for you to use (nice ones too!) and there is a Citibike station directly outside, if you feel energetic. Luckily, if none of the above are for you, we are within walking distance of almost everything that matters in Manhattan!

• The building is a very smart development, a recently renovated 7-story apartment block with original brick facade, great views of the city skyline. Quiet, lovely, village feel, with parks and pedestrian areas just outside, but close enough to get anywhere very easily. I think I am allowed to say it is authentic.

• This is a very large and comfortable space that you will be free to enjoy as you wish (this is your vacation after all). You will have lots of privacy if you wish and as well as the city, you have Books, Music (great as mentioned above), Cable TV with 1000 channels and a DVR, Apple TV and more .... 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 close. Perfect location for exploring both sides of the river too, as very close to Brooklyn and Williamsburg. One of the most historic neighborhoods in the U.S. (perhaps the most). We are only a few minutes away from the walkway along the East River, it has a great view of the Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan Bridge. Nearly opposite the Tenement Museum (which is really great). 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.

• Food shopping wise , it is 3 blocks from a Whole Foods and a couple of blocks from the Essex Street Market. Great food shopping if you want.

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

El Lower East Side de Nueva York, el LES, donde comenzó América.

A continuacion te doy detalles de lo que te ofrecemos en nuestro Loft mientras estes visitando la Gran Manzana.

• Muy amplio loft (aproximadamente 2000 pies cuadrados, 188 metros cuadrados, en última medida - tan grande de Nueva York) en el centro de posiblemente el área más fría de la ciudad (por favor no discuta), moderno, muebles minimalistas, muy abierto y muy limpio (que va para el anfitrión también). Un espacio masivo que se inunda con la luz a través de una pared de ventanas. Basta con echar un vistazo a las imágenes.

• Su propio cuarto de baño privado - Jacuzzi Baño, Ducha, Secador de pelo, accesorios de Kohler. toallas frescas, etc. Todo el champú y las cosas que usted necesitará siempre. Sólo para ser utilizado por usted.

• Su propio dormitorio privado - cama de matrimonio (con un colchón extra si es necesario), ropa de cama, toallas, TV de pantalla plana grande, Armario, sistema de altavoces Bose iPod.

• Amplia cocina - Concepto abierto con todo lo necesario para diseñar un banquete gourmet, electrodomésticos GE, microondas, tostadora, cafetera, lavavajillas, encimera de acero inoxidable, etc. Hacer cualquier alimento que desee - si es realmente bueno, dame un poco. Hacer café en la mañana - siempre disponible - usted tiene su propia barra de café pequeña (Bustelo café, por supuesto).

• Muy amplio salón, real F \ chimenea, Wi-Fi, televisión de alta definición con HDMI conexión, sistema de sonido Bose con iPhone / iPod en circuito, la mejor opción en la música (en mi opinión, la mayoría no lo consultó). Sentarse .... Disfrute

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

• paredes de ladrillo natural (en oposición a poco natural, supongo) y un precioso suelo de madera merbeau, ambos de los cuales se ven bien (pero no dice mucho).

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

• área de asientos al aire libre y balcón - se puede acceder directamente desde su habitación - muy privado (a veces no puedo encontrarlo)

• completa de aire acondicionado / calefacción en la habitación y en el resto del desván - estar caliente, ser cool (probablemente uno a la vez)

• Bosch lavadora y secadora - para su uso

• Templado entrada del ascensor privado directamente en Loft (o escaleras si tienes la energía - no parece tan popular, extrañamente)

• La impresora / escáner disponible. Bolígrafos y papel también, si usted es un tradicionalista. (Aunque dibujamos la línea en cepillos de pelo de camello, estoy seguro de que entiende). Y hay un adaptador de corriente universal para que pueda utilizar para cargar sus aparatos también.

• El edificio es un desarrollo muy inteligente, un apartamento de 7 pisos, recientemente reformado, fachada de ladrillo, buenas vistas del horizonte de la ciudad. Tranquilo, precioso pueblo siente, con parques y zonas peatonales justo fuera.

• 3 minutos a pie de 6 pasos subterráneos locales(URL HIDDEN)líneas, a 7 minutos a pie de la línea 6 también (Spring St). Rodeado de autobuses a todos los rincones de la ciudad. Estación Citibike directamente fuera también.

• También tenemos bicicletas si quieres (se utiliza menos de lo que debería ser!) Y está a poca distancia de casi todo lo que importa en Manhattan!

• Se trata de un espacio muy grande y cómoda que usted será libre para disfrutar a su gusto (esto es sus vacaciones después de todo). Libros, música (grandes como se mencionó anteriormente), televisión por cable con canales 1000 y un DVR, Apple TV o simplemente relajarse y charlar. Depende de usted.

• Ubicado en el corazón de la LES - alimentos (algunos de los mejores de la ciudad), bebida, diversión, compras todo muy, muy cerca. Casi frente al Museo Tenement (que es realmente grande). Uno de los barrios más históricos en los EE.UU. (tal vez la mayoría). Estamos a sólo unos minutos de la calzada a lo largo del East River, que tiene una gran vista del puente de Brooklyn y puente de Manhattan. 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 el Soho todo en un tiro de piedra - y puedo no escupa el momento.

• 3 cuadras de Whole Foods y un par de cuadras de la calle del mercado de Essex.

Espero que todo está cubierto - correo electrónico si necesita más información. Espero verte pronto y espero poder ser parte de su visita a este lugar único

Guest Access

Guests have access to all areas they want except host bedroom - the rest of the Loft , the eat-in kitchen, the dining room, living room, their own private bathroom and bedroom of course and the back deck (even hanging from rooftop is negotiable). Enjoy.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you want. A detailed analysis of the day's adventures or contact limited to semaphore and sign language -- you choose. Of course, ask us as many questions as you would like about what to see and do in New York (We love to talk about that stuff!)

The Neighborhood

Best neighborhood in Manhattan for independent coffee shops, cozy wine bars, up-and-coming restaurants (the area has 4 out of the top 10 best places to eat in this years NY magazine list) , intimate music venues, and interesting owner-operated shops. Like no other area in the city.

Check out the "Guidebook" on my listing -- I send a much longer one that I have written directly to guests that do decide to stay before they get here - and they seem to love it, mention it in their reviews often and keep asking for extra copies!!

Getting Around

3-minute walk from 6 local subways : F and M and J and Z and B and D lines, 7 minute walk to the 6 line . Surrounded by buses to every corner of the city. Get to EVERY area of NY easily - Brooklyn is right next to us on the subway. We have FREE bikes for you to use (nice ones too!) and there is a Citibike station directly outside, if you feel energetic.

Other Things to Note

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Some answers to some common questions we are often asked by prospective guests:

• My calendar is ALWAYS updated, so if the apartment listed as available, then it is. I work hard to make sure that all the information is as accurate and clear as is possible. If you could try to make sure you read the entire listing as it not only answers most questions, but also makes the stay here much more enjoyable - as I have found in my time welcoming many many guests from all over the world.

• If you are getting here early or late , I am happy to accommodate. If you get here early , for example, (before the room is ready at 3 pm), you will be able to check in, get the keys, and leave your bags and enjoy the city and the room will be available at the check in time - if the room is ready earlier I will of course inform you

• Once you enter the dates and number of guests, AirBnb will give you an accurate price and show all costs including AirBnb fees. If you want to see how the total is calculated, the area on the right of the screen under the pictures , shows the total and there is an drop-down which will detail, when pressed, what the breakdown is, giving you a clear picture of all that you will be charged.

• I don't add preset weekly or monthly discounts to the booking price, but, if you are planning to stay for a longish time , I am prepared to offer a special price, so please email and ask.

• 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 kept very very clean.

• You will have lots of privacy, I sleep in a separate area with a separate bathroom and entertainment area. You won't keep me awake, nor will you ever need to tip-toe around. You essentially have the privacy of a private apartment, but a great guide to the city handy.

• I have recently made the loft available to more guests than just the 2 we have had staying normally - previous guests have told me that they would love to bring friends or children with them and having stayed here, they said that the place is more than comfortable and spacious enough to do so.

I have therefore added the use of the Queen size sofa-bed that we have used informally in the past, that I have been told is very comfortable. I have made the price for the extra beds lower and if you do wish to use them the pricing is automatic, but I am happy to discuss exactly what you need via an email or two to make it work. There is also another mattress we could use if you have need.

I urge you to contact me if there are any other questions that you have that you do feel are covered.
