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.
The apartment was as per the description although no washing machine or dryer, the rest was as per the description. It was a clean apartment will all the amenities and a nice backyard that is 4 feet below ground with a nice ha-mac and pic-nic table. The neighborhood is safe and quiet although the entrance might not give that impression. Good air conditioning that was effective throughout the apartment. Downside is the smell in the staircase leading to the apartment and the bathtub shower cap that could use a wash (some molds on it). The coffee machine was working when it wanted (2 times out of 3). Besides that, all was good. There are grocery stores and pharmacy stores nearby and the location was great and easy to find. Definite worth going back. Fernan did welcome us and was available by texto/cell if needed.
Siamo stati a NewYork una settimana e ci siamo trovati benissimo. In casa eravamo 6 ragazzi, quindi non abbiamo avuto molti problemi a gestire gli spazi ed in ogni caso eravamo sempre in giro. Forse per 6 un solo bagno è poco, ma organizzandoci ce la siamo cavata bene.
All'arrivo ci ha attesi Fernand, gentilissimo e ospitalissimo, che in breve ci ha fatto vedere la casa e dato le chiavi.
La casa è esattamente come risulta dalle foto, c'è l aria condizionata, un patio molto spazioso, solo mancano lavatrice e lavastoviglie ma si può sempre lavare a mano.
La seconda stanza è piccolina e il divano letto è invece molto spazioso !
La metro è a dieci minuti a piedi circa da casa. se si esce la mattina ci si ferma a metà strada,si fa una colazione e si riparte !!
Nulla di cui lamentarci, una bellissima vacanza, una bellissima città e il quartiere fantastico, tra il Tompkins square park, locali, bar e ristoranti.
Grazie Edward e Fer!!
Het appartement lag op een mooie uitvalsbasis om veel te voet te gaan bekijken. Het was wel kleiner dan leek op de foto's. Het bleek in een basement te liggen, wat niet in de info stond. Het buitenplaatsje was niet erg goed bruikbaar doordat de airco's, die over de hele gevel zaten, waterdruppels in het rond spatten. De airco's in huis en de afzuiging van de douche werkten goed, maar maakten een enorm lawai. We hebben deze daardoor alleen aangezet als we weg waren. Het appartement was redelijk schoon en we hebben zelfs 2 maal zelf gekookt. We waren met zijn 6-en en dan is het appartement aan de kleine kant. Vier personen zou optimaal zijn. De broer van de verhuurder was aardig en was heel snel ter plekke toen we hem belden bij aankomst.
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).
