My beautiful apartment is available and I've just had it furnished. My apartment is a true two bedroom apartment. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and the couch in the living room converts into a sleeper for one adult. Everything is modern and quite comfortable. Pre-war era building. Original re-exposed brick, beams its beautiful. Perfect location and fully furnished. Includes wifi, cable, linens, towels etc.

The neighborhood is fantastic about 50 feet from the subway, Whole Foods is around the corner and there is plenty to do within walking distance. There's literally everything around you, grocers, bars, restaurants, landmarks, paths, views, history, the neighborhood is amazing.

I may be flexible for arrival or departure times however must be coordinated prior to arrival.

Discounts available for extended stays.

Guest Access

Everything, and please be careful with electronics.

Interaction with Guests

minimal, available if something goes wrong.


Regarding my first review. I greatly appreciate constructive reviews as they help improve the experience for my guests.

-New linens have been purchased. I garauntee clean and fresh linens for all check ins.

-Sofa has been cleaned (there were stains from a spilled drink) and I am planning on replacing with a larger nicer sofa bed

-Noise. This is NYC so there will be some noise. The cozy cafe had a single special event and the entire neighborhood spoke to the owner of the cafe regarding noise. Consider noise issue resolved.

To my guests. I work hard to deliver you an excellent apartment to enjoy the city. If upon your arrival there is anything out of place or missing do not hesitate to let me know. I will do everything possible to insure you have a good stay.

About John

I'm a hardworking and friendly New Yorker. I love to host guests and find pleasure in helping people get to know my wonderful city. I transplanted to NYC about 10 years ago and fell in love with the city the moment I arrived.

Why John chose Manhattan

Brand new renovation and you're in the heart of the city. Historical neighborhood made me fall in love with the whole place.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 adults so having 2 true bedrooms was nice, and I found the pullout futon couch (medium firm) to be very comfortable. For just the 3 days (2 nights) we ate out all meals so didn't cook but did shop at the Whole Foods around the corner, no problem carrying groceries. The train is also around the corner. We visited early June, had the AC running, and for other reviews saying it was too noisy, well then they don't know from NY, because we found it to be uncommonly quiet! I parked my car in a garage 0.7 miles away on 2nd St only to discover on the last day that there's a garage much closer on 3rd St (I think it was). I didn't feel particularly safe on the street but what do you expect it's NY; it's never truly safe. This apt is not in a "residential neighborhood" but people do live here, normal people, including taking their kids to the playground right at the end of the street. Absolutely no problem hooking up with Fernan to get the key (2 sets). The place was very clean and tidy. Sure the bathroom was tiny but it was clean with an excellent shower. People need to stop complaining about that, it's NY, we make due. We didn't hear a peep from the neighbors. I was looking for a location near my daughter's place and this fit the bill. Especially with 2 bedrooms. Great! I would stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean place, close to lots of coffee shops and restaurants. We had 5 people and fit very comfortably. John left us with coffee which was wonderful. It was easy to contact then and check in and check out of the apartment :) We would stay there again!

Great location /clean

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience. Fernan met us as soon as we arrived and went over everything regarding the apartment. The area is very quite and easy to walk to Whole Foods, shopping, restaurants, and parks. The bathroom is tiny but it was very clean and water pressure was great. Beds were very comfortable. Didn't sleep on pullout couch. I would stay again.

Great for the price

  • 4 of 5

Close to subway Train F which can get you anywhere including LaGuardia. Walking distance to Little Italy & SoHo. Fernan was easy to work with. Apt was roomy for 2 people. Clean enough. 1 bedroom had great natural light. The rest of the apartment was a bit dark and dingy. The bathroom overall was clean however there was some mold around the tub and the shower curtain needs to be laundered. Enough towels which is great. It would be great if they added a small bar of bath soap, wash cloths, plastic wrap or foil. Especially considering the small cost of these items. I would definately stay here again. Thanks Fernan!!!!

Family of 5 stayed at apartment 7th-12th April 17.John knew had children.

Emailed several times before trip. Mail he sent re keys sent a tel no for person named Fernan. I asked for his number, was advised it was his no to?! Thought odd but member of HomeAway since 2014 & over 20 reviews.Advised John due in JFK 4pm, told us to call the no soon as cleared security. Landed later than planned 5pm & called whilst que to get threw security. No answer, phone straight to voicemail to someone named Edward Divine. Obviously concerned. Emailed John. No reply. Continued to call, email, text the no for the next 2 hours with no reply. Leaving messages asking to call us re check in & keys.Got in car heading to apartment when text from Edward who gave another no to call Fernan! No idea why told from John the no he gave was for Fernan when it wasn't! As of today 14 April John not replied to emails to explain or apologise By time landed in JFK been travelling for 15 hours with 3 tired children. 2 hours we spent trying to contact no we had been given and getting nowhere caused much stress and anxiety. Arriving in New York, tired & with children and not knowing where we would sleep that night! Terrible. Got in car and heading towards apartment as we didn't know what else to do. Praying someone would be waiting for us & if not hoping be able to find a hotel for the night. Horrible Experience.

This aside -


Great location. One block to subway. 2 mins walk to famous Kats Diner. Hairdryer and iron. Shower powerful and hot. Adequate kitchen utensils,clean fridge freezer, lots of towels, toilet rolls & linen. As long as you’re using apartment as a place to sleep, shower only it's fine. No home comfort so if your wanting to spend time in the apartment bear this in mind.


Bath blocked,every shower standing in 20cm of water.Shower curtain is grim.

Noise from street! Fights,sirens,trucks etc,never stops. Windows single glazed & old no resistance.

Front bedroom windows drafy. In winter this would be awful.

Heater in front bedroom takes forever to warm.

Apartment is dated.Fresh paint,new curtains & TLC would go a long way.This said for 5 of us it offered competitive adequate accommodation you get what you pay for!

On leaving couldn't reach Edward Divine or Fernan so ended up leaving keys to the apartment in kichen & leaving unlocked as taxi waiting & plane to catch! We had paid additional insurance so thankfully didn't have to worry re return of deposit
