GORGEOUS 1 B/R IN THE HEART OF CHELSEA! W/FIREPLACE, SLEEPS 4

Chelsea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fabulous apartment is in a great location on 8th Ave at 18th St, in the heart of Chelsea, perfect to navigate the city from. The building is only 4 stories and the apartment is a short 2 stairways up. The city outside is at your fingertips but the loft is an extremely quiet and peaceful refuge from the fast pace of the city. For romance and relaxation there is a slate covered wood burning fireplace, a beautiful marble bath with two person soaking tub, and separate floating glass shower.

For entertaining there is a large gourmet kitchen. For smoking or reading, there's a Juliette balcony off the bedroom overlooking a quiet courtyard below. The bedroom is the ultimate in comfort and offers plenty of custom wood closets. The apartment has air-conditioning for those warm summer city nights.

Chelsea is an extremely desirable and safe neighborhood that offers great shopping, Manhattan's hippest gallery district, excellent restaurants, cinemas, gyms and gourmet food markets. Extremely convenient to all of New York City's best - and within walking distance of the High Line, Union Square, the Village, Meatpacking District and SoHo, Broadway, museums, galleries, and night clubs. The apartment is also very close to Chelsea Market (9th ave and 15th St), Whole Foods, Trader Joe's. Chelsea Wine Cellar on 7th Ave and 21st St has a great wine selection.

Subways within two blocks radius include the A, C, E, 1, 9 and L, and cabs are always available outside the front door.

I've enjoyed a diversified life with careers in Environmental Science, entertainment, real estate and design. I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climes! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's what I love about NYC. You can't get more city that this!

Christine Barker purchased this condo in 1998

It is an oasis in the city. A perfect location near to all transportation links. It's spacious (as NYC apartments go) and has a quiet bedroom with Juliette balcony in the back. The living area and kitchen are well furnished and in the winter, the wood burning fireplace is an added bonus.

'The location can't be beat!' Quiet bedroom in the back. Small building with only 3 other full time residents. Gorgeous fireplace and wonderful energy. Within walking distance of the High Line, Union Square, the Village, Meatpacking District and SoHo. etc. The apartment is very close to Chelsea Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's. Chelsea Wine Cellar on 7th Ave and 21st St has a great wine selection.

I am reluctant to give a positive review, but only because I want to save the place for ourselves! What a fantastic gem! We had the pleasure of staying in this loft this January. This was my first VRBO, and Susanna and Christine could not have made it more simple or been easier to work with. The loft itself is lovely, very large by NYC standards. It was very clean, and well stocked with all supplies necessary, lovely linens and abundance of towels. The storage capacity was incredible, with every inch of space utilized to its fullest. Located in hip Chelsea, for a true NYC experience. Close to the subway, as well as ideally located to grab a cab up or downtown. A full and spacious kitchen means flexibility around meal planning, a working fireplace, and ample space for folks to relax and rejuvenate after time in the city made this ideal for us. There are a number of good markets close by including West Wide market and the delightful Chelsea Market to stock fridge, as well as a number of nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Enjoyed dinner at LeZie, and Grey Dog.
We will definitely be back!

Lovely apartment in great location, lots of shops, resturants, bars just outside the door but when you are in the apartment you are not aware of the busy outside. Bedroom in the back of the aparetment means it is really quite so easy to get a good sleep. Had all the facilities we could want. Subway stations very close by.Christine was easy to deal with. Was nice to be in Chelsea would definately use this apartment again.

Had a wonderful time! This location is excellent! JoAnne is a pleasure to deal with. I was a novice at booking through Home Away and she was very kind and patient with the multitude of questions that I asked. The apartment is as advertised. We found it to be very clean with all the amenities that were promised. Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance as well as the subway station and we had no problem hailing taxis on Eighth Ave. (The Grey Dog on 16th serves a wonderful breakfast!) My only word of caution would be to those who have trouble navigating stairs. The loft is two flights up and the steps are a little uneven. With that said, I would definitely recommend this apartment!

My boyfriend and I stayed in this wonderful loft last weekend and loved it. Great space and location.

The kitchen/living area was spacious and provided great amenities and plenty of storage space for our belongings.

The bedroom and bathroom were nice and decent in size for NYC.

Yes, you hears a little city noise in the living area (you are in a big city, after all) but the bedroom was very quiet and peaceful.

The little balcony off the back was quaint. The courtyards below are not an overly attractive view but the balcony provides a little outdoor space for coffee or a smoke.

Everyone was wonderful throughout the entire process, from making and finalizing our reservations with JoAnn, to being met upon our arrival by a very helpful Emerson.

We were sad to leave and will absolutely stay here again upon our return to NYC.
Owner's Response: Hi Anne,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review - it was an absolute pleasure accommodating you and your boyfriend..Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we are looking forward to accommodating you again soon. I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have, and make your NY experience the best it can be. Our goal and mission is to create and provide your "Home Away From Home," that's why we have so many return guests. Warm regards, JoAnn

My 24 year old daughter, a friend of mine and myself, just had a 3 night stay in Chelsea. I do not understand the poor reviews of this loft. Yes, it is an older place; yes, some of the rooms are small; yes, it has a two-flight walk-up(wasn't bad at all); yes, there is some street noise in the living area. Is that not all part of the NYC experience? The loft is cute as can be - exactly, like the pictures show. It was clean and well-maintained. The bedroom and bathroom are somewhat on the small side (but again, is that not expected and the norm for NYC?), but the living area and kitchen are good sized. The sheets and towels and kitchen wares were up to expectations. Emerson was there to meet us and to help us get settled in. The owner, Christine, and the manager, JoAnn, were very accomodating(with arrival and departure times, etc.) and provided a list of: eating places, transportation(including a car service, that we used more than a taxi), and area attractions, etc. The location was fun - within walking distance of: the Wendy Williams Show(fun), Chelsea Pier(very unique market place), an outdoor market(fun; just a few blocks from Chelsea Pier), the "High Line", food markets, resturants, pharmacies, and subways. The loft was much enjoyable, than a hotel room. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives, and I would stay there again. I had never used vrbo.com before and was a little skeptical (afraid it may be a scam), but I was not disappointed or scammed. Not nearby the loft, but, certainly, worth a subway or Hop On - Hop Off bus ride or car service ride for a meal is: Joe's Shanghiis in Chinatown, Vincent's in Little Italy, Daniela (fantastic breakfast) at 728 8th Ave.(near Times Square) and Juniors (best NY cheesecake we had, and we had some from several places; also, had great fried chicken) near Times Square. Thanks for a memorable experience!
