About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 5 Sleeps

***My calendar has been updated for late spring discounts!!! NYC in the spring is awesome! Please note the listing price is a starting rate. Summer rates are different*****

My beautiful apartment is located in the incredible East Village neighborhood. Ground floor that faces the back of the building and you have your own backyard. The first bedroom has a private entrance to the backyard and closet space. The second bedroom is very comfortable too with cable t.v. Please note the apartment has two true and separate bedrooms and a living room area all with TV, WiFi etc.

(update: upgraded the sheets, added extra towels and upgraded outdoor furniture)

The entire apartment has hardwood floors and the kitchen has granite counter tops with brand new fixtures. Sandy was rough but the renovation is beautiful:).

The neighborhood is fantastic with everything from boutique shops, restaurants, bars, parks, trails, river board walk all within walking distance. There are two bus lines that run by the building that take you crosstown and downtown. They both run all day long. The historic Tompkins square park is at the corner for your enjoyment. The park has a little something for everyone (grassy knoll, kids parks, dog parks, benches, sometimes free concerts)

Feel free to inquire and visit my home in NYC! Please note that some dates do cost more i.e. national holidays such as 4th of July, Memorial Day weekend etc. and the summer in general as it seems that when everyone wants to come to the city!!!:)"

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

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

My place is a true two bedroom apartment with plenty of room for everyone. I even have a private and exclusive patio with entrances directly from my apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

A large and private patio!!:) very rare in this part of the city.

Great location in east village

  • 4 of 5

Great spot and quiet apartment, hard to find a quiet apartment in manhattan. Great hi-speed wifi. No smell. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children found this place a good size. Cable tv in lounge and bedroom is good for families. Supermarket right around the corner and great cheap Chinese takeaway 1 minute away, restaurants everywhere and nice stroll to 1st ave subway. We would definitely stay again. They just need to put a microwave in the kitchen and small things like potato peeler and tongs etc, but that's the only small gripe.

The apartment is well located and at a reasonable price. The problem was that the wifi didn't work

  • 2 of 5

We had a good time in Manhattan. The apartment was fine for our big family group.

However we had a little problem with the wifi, it didn't work and that wasn't helpful for our trip arrangements later.

Perfect NYC Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 women looking for a fun weekend in the city and this spot was perfect! The apartment is spacious enough for the five of us and two private bedrooms is a plus. The apt. is well stocked with towels and other necessities. The key exchange was seamless and Fernan was very helpful answering all our questions. The location is fabulous with restaurants, cool shopping and parking. The subway is a bit of a walk but the reward is passing by cute boutiques and restaurants. Highly recommend and will definitely look to book again.

I did not stay in this home 1 day! The home was absolutely disgusting to stay in. The beds were dirty and stained along with the pillows. The apartment had no cellphone reception. The backyard had different construction men going in and out on a daily basis. metals and scaffolding were constantly being moved around in the backyard. smoke detector was broken. Entire full construction on both sides of that house. Absolutely unsafe and unsanitary. Owner refuses to refund money when I told me I will not be staying there after the first day of the rental. Please refund money and remove this home from your listings as it is not safe for stay.

Roomy, close to bars, close to a park

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay here. Parking in front of the apartment is limited (but free!) but we were lucky and could park our rental here to unload. We received the key quickly and had no problem finding it. Other reviewer mentioned some 'smell'. We it was still noticeable and can probably be traced back to some freshly painted walls or some cleaning. However we got no headaches from it and it was not as bad as you may think. The beds, bath and kitchen were very clean. The beds in the two bedrooms are nice and comfy. The sofa in the living room can be foldout but beware, as the movable part is not attached to the bed and may slip. I would recommend only 1 person on the sofa at night.

The location is a bit far from the main Manhattan attractions, but an Uber is not more than 15$ to stuff like the Timesquare. We had a good sleep over here and thats what counts.
