stay at our charming, bright studio with high ceilings and southern light, with a special balcony, the width of the studio, that's great for sitting and reading, smoking a cigarette or just taking in a little sun. located in the heart of Chelsea. it's a gem of an apartment.

Guest Access

guest have full control of the apartment. there is no one to share with. it's an apartment completely solo and nobody lives there. it is specially designed for guests. it has all the amenities one could hope for. a fridge full of water. toiletries for anybody that may have forgotten something. it's exactly how i would want my host to treat me as a guest. :-)

Interaction with Guests

i love being available to the guests for anything and everything. i once had to organize a birthday cake and champagne. i did this for no extra charge. my motto is the guest comes first.

The Neighborhood

i love chelsea for it's close proximity to all the best new york art galleries. also, every subway is one black away. it has bikes on the street to rent. it has the best food within one block away. you never have to leave to feel the new york energy. chelsea is the best neighborhood in ny. the high line park is one of the most sought after attractions, and this apartment is one block away from the high line park. :-)

Getting around

the flat is one block from the main subway entrance. one can get anywhere in new york city and not have to worry about taxis or weather. it's my ideal location for anyone living or visiting new york city. :-)

Other Things to Note

the flat is in the back of the building with southern exposure light and a balcony the same width as the apartment. it's quiet and sunny and bright. no better place in chelsea like it. believe me i lived in chelsea for 15 years. i know this flat is special. :-)

  • Chelsea is a fine neighborhood from which to explore New York. We were somewhat surprised that the address listed on this unit is not the actual location of the unit we ended up getting. The actual unit was only a block or two away but we were thrown off by the confusion and had to lug our bags that much further. The unit we stayed in was fine for our purposes, modest, clean, simple. The lock needs replacement and can be tricky to unlock.

    We were surprised that maid came in, unannounced at 9am on our departure day. She allowed us to leave our bags though while we grabbed coffee and a bite to eat. On our way out a gentleman claiming to be from the property management company approached us and asked who we were, what we were doing, how we got access to the unit, etc. I did not provide any details but was not going to deny that we arranged to stay at the unit for one night through airbnb. It was an uncomfortable moment in an otherwise pleasant visit to NYC.

  • Great location! Close to Metro and Highline. It was close quarters for our family of four (our kids are 15 and 11), but we made it work!

  • The apartment is excellently located in the neighbourhood of Chelsea, and is an ideal base for getting around Manhattan. Close to subway lines 1, 2 & 3 which have stops for Central Park, Times Square, the Empire State building, Penn train station, Greenwich Village, and the Staten Island ferry..

    Having an authentic New York apartment makes you feel more like a New Yorker, as opposed to staying in a hotel. The apartment is homely, well equipped, clean and quiet. The balcony is nice and private, great for a relaxed brunch.. A good wi fi connection and Netflix make you feel even more at home.

    I was met by Kyle who was friendly, attentive and informative on the local area. I was able to contact him throughout my stay with any questions.. I intend to visit New York again in September, and would like to book the apartment again.. With many thanks for a great stay, Colin

  • Merci beaucoup pour le beau séjour dans votre apartement, nous avons passé une très belle semaine. Très bel apartement, beau petit balcon agréable dans les arbres. Apartement fonctionnel et lit très confortable pour 2 personnes, lumineux avec grand plafond. Par contre je ne suggère pas cet apartement pour plus de 2 personnes, le sofa lit n'est vraiment pas confortable et il n'y a pas vraiment de lit dans la partie haute de la mini mezzanine où on doit monter avec une grande échelle.
    Super quartier, près de tout, et à 5 minutes du highline.
    Merci à recommander,

  • We were very pleased with our accommodation. We were greeted by Kyle. He was courteous and recommended a few places to eat. We did not meet our host Freddy however I did message him with some queries in which he was helpful. The studio apartment was as advertised. It is only a block away from the A, , C, and E line subway. (Blue line)The studio apartment was well stocked with bathroom amenities (including bandaids, tissues, shavers, and plenty of towels) and the fridge was stocked with bottles of water which was a pleasant surprise. It was always warm in the apartment and the ceiling fan was put to use. Our two daughters enjoyed the Netflix and enjoyed watching a movie before heading off on our day's outings. It was also close to Chelsea market. I especially enjoyed the fresh lobster at "The Lobster Place'". We would definitely stay again. Thank you.

  • We really liked the place! Our family (2 adults, 3 children aged 9 months, 4 and 6 year old) fitted there nicely. And we could easily manage second floor without elevator even with two baby carriages (corridor is quite narrow). Kitchen is small, but enough for breakfast/lunch. The balcony was a nice extra-bonus and our children enjoyed little loft where they could play together. High line park was just around the corner (also a playground for kids) and Chelsea area has very nice restaurants. We would stay here again!

  • We had a lovely stay - very clean and well located place.

    Lots of clean towels, a soft bed and water in the fridge!

    Thanks! :)

  • o atendimento prestado pelo anfitrião foi muito bom , os problemas surgidos ele os procurou solucionar com agilidade e simpatia . O local é privilegiado , um quitinete num prédio dos anos 40 no pós guerra pelo que parece. O único problema é que há um fogão a gás dentro de 1 ambiente que devido ao frio tem que ficar fechado e os riscos decorrentes dessa situação. Sgiro que o anfitrião instale um fogão elétrico

  • Freddy est quelqu'un de très prévenant et soucieux de l'accueil dans son sweet home.
    A conseiller , ainsi que de son appartement idéalement situé à New - York : calme et à proximité de tout ( subway, commerce , etc ..)

  • Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à New York et l'appartement de Freddy à Chelsea est un excellent pied à terre pour visiter Manhattan. Agréable, propre, pas de bruit la nuit, c'est idéal. En prime, nous avons pu voir le matin un petit écureuil depuis la terrasse dans le jardinet !

About
one of my favorite things about living in chelsea is the close proximity to all the wonderful galleries just blocks away. since the highline opened last year the neighborhood has blossomed amazingly. tons of new restaurants, shops, markets, bars, clubs, galleries, it's endless. chelsea is a wonderful place to be apart of. :-) if you love art and food as much as i do, you'll love chelsea in manhattan. oh, and the art in the galleries can be food for the spirit, body, and soul. :-)
