About this listing
Spacious and comfortable. You'll love recharging after a day of touring with a private patio, comfortable beds and cable t.v. and wifi internet.
***My calendar has been updated for autumn and winter discounts!!! NYC in the autumn and winter is awesome! There are discounts for week and month long stays****
My beautiful apartment is located in the incredible East Village neighborhood. Ground floor that faces the back of the building and you have your own backyard. The first bedroom has a private entrance to the backyard and closet space. The second bedroom is very comfortable too with cable t.v. Please note the apartment has two true and separate bedrooms and a living room area all with tv, wifi etc.
(update: upgraded the sheets, added extra towels and upgraded outdoor furniture)
The entire apartment has hardwood floors and the kitchen has granite counter tops with brand new fixtures. Sandy was rough but the renovation is beautiful:).
The neighborhood is fantastic with everything from boutique shops, resturants, bars, parks, trails, river board walk all within walking distance. There are two bus lines that run by the building that take you crosstown and downtown. They both run all day long. The historic Tompkins square park is at the corner for your enjoyment. The park has a little something for everyone (grassy knoll, kids parks, dog parks, benches, sometimes free concerts)
Feel free to inquire and visit my home in NYC! Please note that some dates do cost more i.e. national holidays such as 4th of July, Memorial Day weekend etc. and the summer in general as it seems thats when everyone wants to come to the city!!!:)"
I may be flexible for arrival or departure times however must be coordinated prior to arrival.
***non-smoking apartment however there is a private outdoor patio****
Interaction with Guests
Minimal interaction, however I'm local if anything goes wrong.
Respect the neighbors. No loud music. Smoking away from the building in the backyard only or out front. Enjoy yourselves. Don't answer door to strangers.
Edard was away when we arrived so he arranged for his brother Fernan to meet us with the key. Fernan was there waiting for us when we arrived and showed us round the apartment and explained everything really well, thanks Fernan !
The apartment is exactly as it appears in the pictures. It was spacious and plenty of room for four of us.
The beds were comfortable and the apartment was clean with everything we needed for our stay.
The location is excellent, the neighbourhood has everything you need for an enjoyable stay, shops, bars, restaurants, a nice park and loads of interesting little shops selling everything from vintage clothing to designer ice cream.
The neighbourhood felt perfectly safe and was no problem to walk around at night, it was quiet even though there was plenty of life around it day and night and at no time were we bothered by noise.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in New York and would recommend the East Village as a great base for a visit to the city.
Thanks again Edard.
Everything was perfect, the apartment was consistent with the description and the great neighborhood!
Edward and his brother Fernand made our stay very easy. The latter was there on time to let us it, checking out was easy, and the apartment was spot on for our needs.
The location was the best of this place, the neighborhood is lively, with several good restaurants. The space is as described and it was mostly clean at our arrival. We did not had problems at our arrival, and the person with the keys was gentle enough to wait about 20 extra minutes due to traffic issues. We might have been unlucky because the neighbors upstairs had a huge fight one night, making noise and moving furniture until 2 am. On the second day of our arrival I asked our host to please replace the shower curtains because they were cover with mold. Got a message from him, but the curtains were not changed during our stay (3 nights).

logement conforme à la description
Edard apartment is very well located, Easy to join the different places in NY. It correspond to the photos. There is no washing machine contrary to what is mentioned in the description. A microwave would be good as well :-). Except these points the equipment was sufficient to our needs. I don't know if it is because the apartment is in the basement and if it is the period for that but we had lot of ants sharing the flat with us :-). The apartment was globally quiet (exept 2 nights with the neighbours above). We arrived 1 day late, but Edard arrange to have someone to welcome us. Thank you for this.
L'appartement de Edard est très bien situé. Facile pour se rendre à tous niveaux de NY. Il correspond aux photos. Il n'y a pas de machine a lavé bien que mentionne dans l'annonce. Un micro-onde serait nécessaire aussi :-). A part ces points l'équipement était suffisant selon nos besoins. Je ne sais pas si c'est parce que l'appartement est situé en sous-Sol ou si c'est la période, mais nous avions des fourmis qui partageaient l'appartement également :-). L'appartement était globalement calme (excepté 2 nuits avec les voisins du dessus). Nous sommes arrivés avec 1 jour de retard mais Edard s'est arrangé pour nous accueillir à ce moment. Merci pour cela.
Edards apartment was clean, modern and spacious for our group of four, and the pullout bed was very comfortable.
The apartment is in a great location with lots of bars and restaurants all around, and a short walk to subways. The area can look run down in the mornings when all the shutters are down - but comes to life later in the day.
We had a great stay in the apartment.
