Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 5 Sleeps

***FREEZING temps mean LOWER rates!!! Check my low Jan and Feb nightly rates**

I'd say my place is unique because of the location, right in the heart of three neighborhoods (east village, soho, lower east side). A spacious lay out affords a comfortable stay for everyone. Two true bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment are great for privacy.

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

Guest Access

You'll have access to my entire apartment. I won't be there during your stay. Kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms are all available. There is heat, a/c, cable tv, hi-speed and reliable internet. I also provide lots of towels, linens for your stay. Both bedrooms have a queen size bed and the living room has a convertible bed that sleep one.

Interaction with Guests

I will not be at the apartment or present during your stay. I pretty much meet, give keys and depart leaving you with my beautiful home. I will be local in case anything comes up. I'll be happy to provide any suggestions and there are also maps of the neighborhood in the apartment.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is fantastic and hands down probably the best in all of NYC. Here you'll get the true experience of New York City. The entire neighborhood is very safe day or night. There is so much to do you could literally spend your whole vacation here and not leave the neighborhood and not get bored!!:) There are restaurants, historical landmarks, bars, retail, boutiques, spas, parks, children parks, east river boardwalk and much more.

Getting Around

Transportation is very very convenient. The subway is one block away (F train) and the express trains are only a few blocks away (B,D). The 6, n, r are also very close by. You can get to anywhere in the city from my apartment.

Other Things to Note

All utilities are included, cable, WiFi, towels, linens etc

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 Bowery

Beautiful and comfortable for groups and the location is superb.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Amazing location! Everything was amazing but there is a 4 floor walk up which wasn’t bad for us (actually burned the pizza off) but if you can’t do stairs it’s not the place for you. Other than that the place was awesome and the contact was great and helpful.

Perfect location for our family’s daily outings!

  • 4 of 5

We were given early access just to drop our luggage, and away we went. Loved the restaurants nearby along with the metro access. Wish the beds were a tad more comfy, but really we were so tired each night it was fine! Did not use the kitchen, but appreciated the access to a fridge. Perhaps a couple places to hang our towels would be nice...

Great location for our stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was great for a weekend in the city. With four of us we wanted to be able to all stay together. It met our needs and is close by to many restaurants, bars, and the subway. Everything is within walking distance. The Bowery is a great area to be in.

Great location but insufficient maintenance

  • 3 of 5

Great place to stay due the location and very closed to the subway. Confortable but some missing items compare to the description of the flat - no hair dryer, insufficient number of ustensiles and Glasses

No answer from the landlord to our questions sent by text

Wifi password not ok

Not convenient for people coming with large luggage or baby stuff - stairs to access flat on 3rd floor

Good location, bad communication

  • 2 of 5

Our stay turned out to be super-stressful, because John and his friend were non-responsive and communication was almost impossible. Even though we addressed late check-out options (or luggage storage) before our arrival and again at check-in, we never got an actual response until 3pm on the day of our departure, which was obviously too late. Calls just go to the empty or at best to a voicemail, text messages are not responded to; emails responded with much delay. So before our arrival, we got super nervous whether this place even exists and only got a response to a second email after several other attempts to get in touch. Upon our departure, we had no clue how to organize our luggage and pick-up. As it turns out, John rents out three apartments in the same building to make some extra money, but is apparently annoyed about interaction with tenants. For those who do not require any sort of interaction, after having spent 8 nights with four people:


+ good size of apartment for 4 (two double bed, would not recommend for 5)

+ sufficient towels

+ comfy beds

+ sufficient storage space

+ great location as such, close to everything

+ check-in process ultimately worked well (after all, this is the one thing that needs to work so the place can be rented out)


- one bedroom goes towards Houston, an important traffic axis. So there will be noise (sirens, honking, etc.) at any time of the night. It is slightly better on Sunday and Monday nights and is REALLY BAD from Thursday to Saturday. This adding to the heat and no aircondition turned out to be a big issue.

- No real blinds, only some darkish thin curtains

- there is no toaster, no water glasses let alone wine glasses; no proper cutting knive

- it is on the fourth floor with no elevator

- overall, there was some thougths given when the place was set up as the furniture etc. is quite nice and sensible, but everything set up later on shows a disinterest in the place such as the organization of cables (a big mess), used/bent knifes were not replaced, no explanation whatsoever on neighbourhood, shower faucet doesn't work properly, fridge door is hooked at the wrong side

- lots of homeless around the place, but we felt overall safe in the place

Spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

For Manhattan standards, this is a quite spacious unit. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't there. Also, there were a ton of towels, which usually seem to be lacking in rentals. John was always quick to respond to questions, check in/check out were smooth and seamless. Very close to subway, or grab an Uber right out front.

Car: not necessary

You'll be in the heart of the east village. Everything is close by tourist attractions, grocery store, food, drinks, retail, landmarks, and the subway. You'll love the neighborhood!
