Where do we start...?! We have nothing but positive comments about Zeb, Mar and this amazing studio on the LES. Zeb and Mar were quick to respond and so helpful with any and all questions. The studio itself is in a great security building with a lift. As many have mentioned, the rooftop and views are spectacular. The location is pretty unbeatable - subway an easy walk, walking distance to Soho, Nolita, the Brooklyn Bridge, endless options for eating and drinking. We can't recommend this place enough! You won't be disappointed. We would definitely stay again.
Zeb and Mar were great hosts for our week there. The apt was clean and well equipped with anything we needed for the kitchen. The roof top view was one of the best we found in the city. The location was central to schitybikes, grocery stores, and amazing food. After walking around NYC for a week i would say that the les is one of the best places to stay. Easy walk to everything you would want including chinatown, subways, and the great old school food of Houston street. When we come back this pad is a first choice for sure!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great week staying at Zeb's place, we had everything we needed, the most comfortable bed ever, great powerful shower, oven, microwave, fridge freezer (not that we cooked), Internet, Xbox with netflicks etc. we mainly just slept here but if we had been stuck in it would not have been a problem. The view from the roof is amazing and the view from the bedroom window is also fantastic, I miss seeing the glittering buildings at night time from the bed! The neighbourhood is great, the apartment is on a very quiet street (considering its New York!) but super close to all the best places on the lower east side. I couldn't have found a better place to stay. Zeb was always super quick to reply to any messages. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay again!
Apartment is in a really great location. Just a quick walk to the beach, everything you need within walking distance.
However, the photos of the apartment are much nicer than the actual apartment. The big rug in the picture in the living room was not there during our stay which had been covering up a massive horrible stain on the floor.
Also, blanket on the chair in the main room is covering up the leather peeling off the whole chair. Really bad condition. I took the blanket off and laid on the chair once, and I had bits of black material all over me.
That said, bedroom is lovely, kitchen well equipped, &although bathroom is dated, shower was good.
Overall, apartment is a good size with good air con but needs a lick of paint and a bit of attention. No TV but there is a great wifi connection.
Main bug bear- Whatever you do- do NOT park in any other space in the gated car park other than the one reserved for the apartment.When we arrived, somebody had already parked in ‘our’ space. The cleaning lady who let us in the apartment told us to park in someone else’s spot but to move the car when we could. 1.5 hours later, this person had still not moved their car from our space. I left a note on their car saying “Please move your car you’re in my space.Thanks.” &a note on my car saying “Sorry I am in your space, someone is in ours. I will move asap.” &popped out for lunch. On our return, our car had been towed from inside the private gated apartment. It cost $256 to get the car back. Zeb originally offered to pay for it all. But later retracted this to 1 nights stay at $118. I appreciated the gesture but I still feel incredibly (website hidden) no point were we warned about the strict parking restrictions or of the possibility of towing. If we had been, I would never have left the car there. Zeb was keen to point out that the cleaning lady had stressed a lot we needed to move the car, but this wasn’t the case. He says she knocked on doors to find out who had parked there then came back to tell us to move again, but she came back within 5 seconds of leaving, no mention of towing&no time to knock on doors. Would have been cheaper to stay in hotel w/ valet parking. Wasnt happy with the implying that this was entirely my fault, angry that Zeb basically washed his hands of the matter by saying that as he wasn’t there to check us in so couldn’t take any responsibility for it. I firmly believe that if you are designating somebody else to check your guests in etc, then that person takes over the responsibility. I also wonder if the neighbours object to lots of different people staying in the apartment&hence decided to get us towed.
The apt is absolutely great:very good location,enough space,easy to find and looks very like on photos. Delicious Tap Tap restaurant is behind the corner of the street. There are some wine shops and pharmacy very close. Zeb is very nice and answers very quick. special thanks to Carol who waited for our early arrival. Highly recommended!!
The apartment was perfect! Cosy, warm and at a very convenient location! But more than anything else, I would like to thank Carol for being amazing, and just so nice even though I didn't have the chance to meet her! Will definitely recommend this place, and hope to book it for my next trip to Miami.
Zeb est un hôte parfait! il c'est montré attentif et continuellement soucieux de notre bien être tout le long de notre séjour! l'appartement est situé dans un quartier calme (ce qui est très agréable lorsque vous rentré "rincé" en fin de journée); cependant il reste vivant car tout près de chez Zeb les trottoirs sont jalonnés de divers restos, bars, petits commerces en tous genres etc.... Notre séjour était parfait et le studio de Zeb lumineux ne manquait de rien! Un seul bémol le petit bordel de Zeb (multitude de cartons et fringues savamment empilés dans tous les recoins du studio!)
Absolutely fantastic apartment, great location just a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants but still quiet at night.
Really enjoyed our stay - we felt very welcome and would definitely stay again.
No complaints. Thanks for having us!
Zeb's place is in a great East Village location, wonderful to have such a nice place to retire to after the excitement of New York and Zeb was always there online to help. Extra note, his local eatery Rustic was one of the star finds in NY, yummy food as Zeb says.
Zebs apartment located in south beach miami is amazing ..It has such a calm good energy to it. It's brightly lighted , and spacious. It's uncluttered and breaths clean and you have all you need in the kitchen to cook and enjoy the place as your own . It feels and is a very safe building and location , feeling very private. The building is super clean , the cleaning lady is so sweet and is there everyday practically cleaning the front and the halls and elevator , there is always a scent of fabuloso lol..The location and building are practical as well because there is a elevator, washer and dryers in the building and you have your own private parking space , a true luxury in south beach area. Everything is super close as well , You have a laundromat , a deli , a pharmacy a liquor store , dollar store for any little needs and grocery store all in the parameters of on block radius...there is also awesome typical Cuban food serving all 3 meals a day at the most affordable prices with the best cafe con leches just a block away (Las Olas) and even a bike rental stand a block away as well (so awesome , bike deco , there all over the city now its 4-5 dollars for the hour !!!) Needless to say you can walk to the beach or just and to lincoln road even and shop or just chill on the terrace and enjoy the sunset ! all in all it is such a great place and experience and so affordable you begin to feel at home ..so much at home you want to stay or even rent the place as your own ..;p..its just perfect for the miami experience at a affordable price!! i look forward to staying there again! so 5 stars and 2 thumbs ..easy breezy !!!
Zeb and I met when I was working at his neighborhood brunch spot called Alias. We immediately geeked out on social media platforms and began to tweet each other. Our mutual love of travel, yoga, sunsets, technology, good food, music and cultural events led to us traveling together. Our first trip together was to Austin for the infamous SxSw Music/Film/Technology conference. Our next trip is to Chicago and then to Nicaragua for a yoga retreat. He is the most fun-loving man with a great outlook on life! I definitely recommend staying at his awesome studio in the lower east side. It's conveniently located by the Williamsburg bridge and has phenomenal skyline views as well as great sunsets. The balcony is great and the rooftop is big enough to have a few friends over for a bbq. You couldn't have picked a better host for your NY trip! Book his place immediately!
