About This Listing
Bedroom in the heart of the trendiest neighborhood on Manhattan. Buzzing with life from bars, restaurants and boutiques giving a real New Yorker experience along with easy subway transit minutes away to all tourist attractions.
East Village double bedroom in gay friendly and social apartment. We have a clean bright and very quiet true NY apartment in the center of the East Village with tons of bars, restaurants, boutiques and Tompkin Sq Park/Union Sq just outside the door. A fully functional kitchen as well as toiletries and towels included for the shower(just bring your toothbrush!). Two Blocks from the L-train that will take you to both the west side and trendy Willamsburg.
We have a lot of knowledge of the area and the city for activities and nightlife. The apartment can be social or as private as you wish and we love meeting new people and sharing our NYC experience. Occasionally work from home but for the most part the apartment will seem like your own. We are very easy going and will accommodate the best we can with your traveling schedule and any needs you may have when you arrive.
You will have access to the entire apartment. The living room doubles as my bedroom so you are able to use it when I am not home (most of the time). The apartment should have everything you need including toiletries if you need some and a fully functional kitchen with plenty of dishes, cookware, toaster, kettle and juicer. The apartment has 2
A/C units. One in your bedroom and one in the living room so the apartment easily stay cool in the summer. There is also a TV in the bedroom that has wifi with Netflix and Hulu access.
Interaction with Guests
We work a lot but will be home throughout the week and always around to help with any needs or questions! We love to get to know our guests so don't be shy!
The East Village is my favorite neighborhood! It is quite, trendy and super safe but still very active. There are so many great bars, restaurants and little shops all over and great to explore without all the tourist chaos! Please check out the guidebook for some of my favorite places in the city! :)
The 1st Ave stop on the L train is only 2 blocks away and will take you to JFK airport easily or anywhere else in the city as it is the only subway that runs across the city so you will be able to access all subway.
No real house rules, we want you to feel at home. You can come and go as you please. We are very use to having people stay and sharing our space.
What a great stay! Seth made us feel really welcome and comfortable. We felt like true New Yorkers ;). Thanks again for all you wonderful suggestions. Will most definitely recommend.
Ash and Jo
thanks, Seth&Sam, we enjoy our stay in ur place. It's clean and convenient. And the boys gave us a lot of privacy while they also helped a lot when we asked about sth. Highly recommend! Thank you guys!
I stayed at Seth's flat for a week and i must say it is my best airbnb experience.
I ended up travelling to nyc by myself and Seth and his boyfriend were kind enough to show me around, give me a few tips about the city and even introducing me to some of their friends.
The flat is really ideally located in this charming and lively east village, just a few blocs away from greenwich, union sq, with all comodities around, great amount of coffees bars etc
The flat is very clean, well furnished and decorated with taste. Bedroom is quiet and cosy. Bathroom and kitchen are very clean and functional. It was hot and sunny during my stay, but luckilly the flat is equiped with AC.
There is no doubt i will stay there again and recommend to my friends!
Comme expliqué en anglais, Seth et son ami ont été des hôtes formidables, ont toujours veillé à ce que je ne manque de rien et m'ont fait vivre cette semaine à l'heure new-yorkaise!
L'appartement en soi est très propre, et je vois que du positif, dispose d'une clim ce qui était très appréciable avec les fortes chaleurs.
Il est très bien situé dans ce charmant coin qu'est East village, si bien qu'il est possible de passer une journée entière dans le village sans s'ennuyer!
Je recommande chaudement!
Mi mejor vacaciones con airbnb, Seth es un buen gente y el piso estaba muy lindo y limpio.
El barrio east village tiene todo lo que quiere, no hay duda que volveré en su alojamiento.
Το διαμερισμα ειναι ορεα πολγ
Description of place was accurate and the apartment was beautiful. It looks different than the current Airbnb pictures, but I'd say even better designed. Seth also provided a bottle of wine for me upon my arrival.
The bedroom was small, but really comfortable. And the wifi worked great. It checked all the boxes for me, including a Citi bike share station directly outside the apartment. It made traveling to the west side of town a breeze.
My wife and I stayed at Seth's overnight. Seth was great in responding to questions promptly. Unfortunately, due to conflicting schedules, we never got to meet Seth. We feel that this is a fine place to stay if you're only staying overnight and want a place to crash. The room where we slept was small with no place to sit except on the bed. There was the couch in the living room shown in the photos but was unavailable when Seth was there because he slept on the couch at night. It wasn't a problem during the night time as Seth was working but the morning presented a problem with seating, particularly for me since I suffer from a low back pain. The apartment wasn't as clean as I would have expected as there as a dirty fork on the coffee table in the living room and the kitchen and top of the toilet didn't seem to have been cleaned well. The only other observation is that the bed didn't have a top sheet so there was only a comforter covering us and the room was stuffy. I think during the summer months that this room might get excessively warm if there isn't an air conditioner in the room.
Great 3 days in Seth's house. Sweet boy and the room is comfortable. I will choose the house again when I come back to nyc next time.
