Overview

East Village Apartment Rental Photos and Description

two bedrooms sleeps 1 to 5; 1 full bathroom with tub and shower

(No elevator-- 4 flight walk up, so if that is a problem stop reading now! . . . 61 steps altogether)

This floor- through apartment is located on the most beautiful block in Manhattan's East Village, lined with weeping willows and other huge trees. The view from avenue C is breathtaking. It's an 1890's building renovated in 1993, with new plumbing and electric, and re-roofed in 2010. There are lovely brick walls, an old pine floor, and a beautiful sleeping loft, with other beds in the living room. A thoroughly charming atmosphere, with lots of sun and air.. . . Air- Conditioned in summer, and 6 fans besides the A-C.. . . .and heated all night long in winter. Kitchen looks out on huge garden with several species of very beautiful trees. 4th floor, no elevator. One week rental minimum.

East Village becoming classier daily: This is a growing neighborhood, yet retaining the tradition of smaller, neighborhood run Parks, tended to by volunteers, and ambitious amateurs of gardening, each trying to out-do their neighbors. You can visit these botanical hot spots during the day and on weekends.

Restaurants of different ethnicity have sprung up all over, all new--and these are reasonable in price, and attractive in , decor.There's a little thin crust Pizza store on Avenue B that looks like an old New York candy store (Gruppo). Several French restaurants (Rue B, and 26 Seats) and Esperanto --a Brazillian place on the corner with live Brazillian Musicians often and with sidewalk tables for Brunch on Sundays.

About Owner

I'm a retired marble worker, I live 2 hours away. I'm really glad to have people stay here. Many people sincerely loved it.

Owner purchased this apartment in 1991

What makes this apartment unique

It is bright and sunny , but has only 2 walls facing outside, so it is nice and warm in the winter. he ceilings are high-8.5feet to10.5 feet high depending on the room.

If it is 90 or more degrees and sunny, the loft is too hot sometimes in the summer, so some guests pulled the foam mattress down and slept on the floor, if there were 5 guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful time in NYC. Thanks to your apartment, we could rest well and get some sleep in this quiet yet vibrant neighborhood.

We really enjoyed our stay in your original apartment -it contains everything we needed.

Feel free to taste some German chocolate.

(they left a giant bar of white, dark and milk chocolate as present.)

The East Village was wonderful and the place worked perfectly for our group of 4. We were surrounded by artwork and ideas in a space that was quirky , creative, and authentic.

Price is right

  • 2 of 5
The apartment was a good size and clean. I would strongly recommend that some of the clutter be removed as it makes the apartment look unkepted. Tom has a lot of his personal items in the apartment which left little room for our own belongings. Really enjoyed getting to meet and chat with Tom. I was really turned off by the disgusting smell of urine on some of the floors leading up to the apartment. The location was great as it was only about a 10-15 minute walk to the subway.

Owner's Response: The Clutter is books and CD's , and the enormous number of pots on the walls in the kitchen.
A lot of people like that because it is homey.
Somebody's dog must have peed in the hall after I was gone. Usually the halls are odorless , and the apartment always is.
I never had guests who went up and down the stairs as much as them. It was like a Bedroom farce, members of the group kept showing up at the kitchen door without the others, while I completed the cleaning. I thought it was so funny.
The kid loved the sleeping loft , and agreed it is the ""country cabin in Manhattan"".
That is the lowest rating I ever got!! It is usually 4-5 stars.
Today my Norwegian newscaster guest returned for his third stay, in two years,. He travels light.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Tom for being a great host. The place was cozy and warm. I was surprised at how quiet a condo in Manhattan can be. Yes there are a lot of personal effects but those made it feel like a real home instead of a sterile hotel. We were hoping our flight would get canceled due to the snowstorm while there but it did not, so we had to leave on Sunday. Tom called us and said the place was available for extended stay if the flight canceled, so it was nice to be put at ease. We also appreciated some of the items left in the fridge for us, especially the bottle of champagne the previous guests left behind, we enjoyed a nice toast before heading out on the town. We'll return for another visit again soon. Richard & Aaron!

Good Price

  • 4 of 5
This was an artist studio. The apartment is full of personal stuff but is fully equipped with everything you need. The neighborhood is pretty particular, since it offers a real NYC experience, lots of good and cheap restaurants, bars and nightlife. Tom is very helpful and if you are looking for an affordable place to stay, this is a good choice. Subway stations are a little away, but bus stations are a block away from the apartment.

bon accueil, bon rapport qualité/prix

  • 5 of 5
l'appartement est très bien équipé, on a l'impression d'être invité dans un logement habituellement habité : il y a de la vie, un peu de désordre, rien à voir avec une location impersonnelle ! On se sent très vite chez soi.
Tom est très cool et accueillant. Beaucoup de conseils sur les commerces du quartier, et sur Manhattan en général.
Accès internet : le wifi marche très bien dans l'appartement.
Le métro le plus près est à 10 minutes à pied (ligne L, 1st Av.), il y a des arrêt de bus à moins de 5 minutes.
Le quartier est calme et sûr, plein de petits restos et de bars, d'épiceries 24/24.
Pour les sportifs on peut aller courir le matin au bord de l'East River (parc).
Bref, on a passé une excellente semaine (3 adultes, 2 ados)
