I am originally from KY, now working and living in New York City. Easy going and laid back, love meeting new people!
This was the perfect homebase for our 5 night stay in New York! We were looking for something comfortable, clean, and centrally located and the east village loft exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by Justen, who made us feel welcome right off the bat. The listing was exactly as the pictures display- clean bathroom, cute kitchen, and comfy bedroom. The heater worked well, which was key in the dead of winter. I truly couldn't say enough wonderful things about the location. We found ourselves stumbling upon the cutest bars, shops, comedy clubs, markets, late night pizza joints, you name it, the neighborhood has it. Side note: there's a pizza spot right outside the listing that we may or may not have visited every night as a late night snack... the 6 flights of stairs on the way up made us feel a little less guilty ;) Finally, the rooftop. Arguably one of the best views of the city. Plus some great outdoor furniture to enjoy some wine or a cup of coffee.
Cannot say enough good things. Can't wait to return. Definitely stay here!
Although Steven was not there, he provided us with detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment and also gave us his room mate's contact details.
His room mate Justen was a wonderful host. he provided us with recommendations and suggestions on places to see and places to eat.
The apartment was situated in a very handy location and the roof top terrace was AMAZING! (especially when it snowed whilst we were there!) The room was clean and decently sized.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in east village!
Thanks Steven for such a wonderfull spot. Everything went superfine, the flat was really nice and clear, the view from the terrace was amazing. Had a really great time there!
We had a wonderful one-week-stay at Steven`s place. The apartment is modern and beautiful with a separate bedroom and a second bed upstairs. Best of all is the roof top deck with fantastic views over Manhattan, where we started our days with sunny breakfasts and ended with a glass of wine at night. The apartment is located in a nice neighborhood with many small coffee places and restaurants and just a 10 min walk from Whole Foods ( our favourite mega-bio-shop). We also enjoyed the Enoteca just on the ground floor very much.
We only met Steven and Justen while exchanging keys, but these short contacts were welcoming and easy, the e-mail-conversation very prompt and reliable.Thank you very much!!
a bit late, but we would like to thank you for the amazing stay in your apartment! we recommend this place, if you look for a clean and cozy apartment for your stay in nyc.
The apartment in the Lower East Side is located in an awesome part of town. There is always something going on, its close to a subway line and the view from the rooftop is amazing.
Although Steve was away on business he gave us great suggestions to places to eat and drink. His roommate Justen was also really helpful and friendly.
Steve suggested we try Supper, a little Italian place down the street. The food was great and so was the wine. The 99c pizza slices down the street are also a great snack on the way home from a night out.
Highly recommend this place!
Steven and Justen were both great hosts. They are kind and friendly and easy to communicate with. The room is very comfortable and gets plenty of light which is really nice. The apartment is pretty awesome, it is clean, tidy and has a lovely rooftop deck on which we enjoyed a beer at sunset. The view from the deck is fantastic. Also, the neighborhood is really nice and is packed with bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Great experience. And if we ever get the occasion again, we'll sure stay there!
Great location, very comfortable and awesome roof top with spectacular views. Highly recommended!
We had a great time in New York, Steven was an excellent host and very welcoming. The apartment is in a great location, close to the lower east side and over the bridge to Williamsburg, the subway is close and on the F line which goes everywhere. But the best thing about this apartment is the roof top terrace! Amazing views of Manhattan at sunset and night views too!
Wonderful bright and clean apartment. Bed was nice and comfortable with a beautiful sky light to look up through. Roof deck was an amazing place to end a nice summer evening.
Steven and his roommate Justen are the coolest guests I've ever had! Really great to talk to, we hung out a fair bit in the apartment. I introduced them to proper English tea and hopefully started a trend. They were incredibly clean and tidy and as hosts themselves, they went out of their way to leave the apartment in a really clean and tidy state when they left. Do yourself a favour and host these guys if they are in your part of town!
Steven was a great guest, and a great guy to speack with. With traveling thur Barcelona when I met him and took care of the flat like no one ever before. Nice and easy to get along with I would no doubt stay in his flat when I stay in NYC !! My warmest regards from Sunny Barcelona Hanzel
Lovely and polite chap. Welcome back any time. Recommend as a guest
Nice, polite and very available. I d love to have him again at my place if he's back
Steve and his travel mate were excellent guests! polite, extremely respectful, they left the room in such a perfect condition that I could hardly detect their presence in my house! I warmly recommend Steve as a guest!
