The space

Think of this as an open-concept one-bedroom! this spacious studio apartment has a separate kitchen and a long hallway separating the sleeping area from the bathroom, so that even for a studio it feels like a one-bedroom.

enjoy all the amenities of a hotel but for a fraction of the price and double the comfort (and none of that nasty hall smell):

Brand new wall air conditioner with remote control

Queen sized, memory foam bed

32" TV, DVD player, and Roku box with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Pandora and more! (no cable)

wireless internet

ample heating in winter

full kitchen

Coffee and tea

dining table

elevator (4th floor apartment)

fresh linens, towel and hairdryer


windows face the rear of the building so this place is exceptionally quiet!

Huge bathroom stocked with shampoo, conditioner and body wash

steps to the L, N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6 trains, only a block from Union Square where there are tons of shops, restaurants, farmer's market, art market, playground and dog run.

wonderful block, across the street from Booker and Dax, the East Village's newest cocktail bar. Also shares a block with Momofuku, one of the highest rated restaurants in NYC and Milk bar, where you can get the most delicious cookies, pies and ice cream and of course fancy coffees and pastries for breakfast.


you might be able to find a spot on the street and you can pay for it at one of those little pay stations across from the building, OR you can park in the garage up the street (about two blocks on 12th between 4th and broadway), it is called Impark and the price fluctuates but I believe it is around $35/24 hours.

Guest access

exclusive access to this stunning apartment (nothing is shared, it's all for you!).

There is no smoking permitted anywhere in the apartment or building.

Interaction with guests

I live in San Francisco but my assistant Kelly is awesome and can help you out!

The neighborhood

There are tons of amazing restaurants and bars around, plus it has access to every other neighborhood via Union Sq. If you like to cook or drink at home, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and the Trader Joe's Wine shop are just around the corner.

Getting around

The L train is one block away, the Union Sq trains are 2 blocks away (L,4,5,6,N,Q,R), there are also buses that go uptown (to the UN etc.) and downtown (Freedom Tower) so you can see the city as you travel.

Your Host



New York, New York, United States · Joined in May 2012

I am from California but have lived in NYC for 7 years. I fell in love with the East Village because I enjoy discovering all the little wine bars and funky restaurants that spring up around me. If you love food and drinks, I'd be happy to give you more recommendation than you could ever possibly remember!

As a guest and a host I aim to be amicable. I can either show you around or leave you alone, I just want to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy.

I am very low-maintenance as a guest and as a host I prefer guests who are the same.
