Great cozy stay on the Lower East Side

  • 5 of 5

Jake's place is absolutely wonderful. Great location, close to iconic New York restaurants and bars. There are multiple subway stations in walking distance. The apartment has a comfortable bed and a homey feel. We were pleased to find some umbrellas in the apartment so we did not have to buy one. Jake's made himself easy to reach through text, so communication was not a problem. The only drawback is the apartment is on a busy street and it can be loud during the weekend nights. Overall I enjoyed Jake's apartment a lot and it made for a perfect vacation home.

Wonderful week in NYC at this great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Jake's apartment and it was excellent. The reviews from prior renters were spot on. The apartment is clean and gives you plenty of room to spread out, beats a hotel room any day. The building is quiet and we never heard any noise of people walking above us or in the neighboring apartments. Everything from coffee to spices and toilet paper are there. The views from the many windows are just beautiful. The bed is comfortable and there are ample blankets for those chilly nights. As to be expected, the nighttime honking and noise were present but we bought ear plugs which helped.

The apartment is close to two subway stations, one being about 600 feet away. These are main lines so there is no having to switch trains to get anywhere. We bought an unlimited weekly pass for $32 and it was a great way to travel. There are many delicious restaurants in the area surrounding the apartment, just walk a block or two and you have your choice of every type of food imaginable. The burgers at Hair of the Dog were the best we have ever eaten. There is a pie store about 200 feet from the apartment that sells from scratch pie that is to die for. A whole foods is about 1/2 a mile away and a 24 hour grocery is in the next block.

The key pickup is a wonderful company about a block away, City Co Pilot, and you can leave your bags there for $10 each after or before checkout/in. We did it both days and it was great if you have a later flight.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have to give a 5 star review for Jakes apartment because I am beyond satisfied and I'm so glad I chose his apartment! I just arrived home after spending 6 days in Jakes apartment. I have to say that this apartment is in the most perfect location possible! We were within minutes walking distance to train stations, as well as just a short walk into Chinatown and Little Italy. It was the perfect size and again, location, PHENOMENAL! Jake was a great host although he couldnt make it for us to meet him in person, he used a key service for us to pick up and drop off our keys which was literally just a block down the street and easy to use, with friendly staff (as an added bonus, for $10 per bag they will hold your bag for you all day, if you arrive way before your check in time, so this was very convenient for us considering our plane arrived WAY earlier than expected). Jake responded to my texts within a reasonable amount of time if I had a question, and he gave me a great recommendation of restaurants. I would love to stay in Jakes apartment every time I visit New York!

Choose this apartment and you will not be disappointed :)

Perfect in the LES

  • 5 of 5

This apartment clean, comfortable and the location is great. There are thoughtful touches throughout that make you feel at home rather than in a hotel. The kitchen is spacious and well-stocked. The bed is super comfy as well as the couch. This part of town is fun, buzzy and exciting with lots to see, do, eat and drink. Love it.. will definitely be back.

Apartment with all you need

  • 4 of 5

The apartment had all we needed! But unfortunately the traffic noise is relentless. If you are a light sleeper its probably not the best. But close to the subway and Essex market. Jake is very friendly & obliging! Good view of the top of the Empire State bldg! 🍎
