SPACIOUS GROUND-FLOOR LOFT ONE BLOCK FROM TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK

East Village Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Giant studio loft (60m²/ 650 ft²) sleeps 4 adults on queen bed and full sofabed

Why stay in an overpriced cookie-cutter hotel room in a so-called boutique hotel when you can live the life: 'la vie boheme'? Enjoy this one-of-a-kind 650-sq.ft. studio outfitted with all the modern conveniences, steps from the vibrant life of the East Village with its clubs, shops, bars, and restaurants, yet situated in a quiet building insulated from noise and bright lights. The property is owned and operated by native-born restaurateurs. You will have easy access to everything in Manhattan (two bus lines stop at the corner and a subway station a few blocks away) and live in a real neighborhood with students, artists, and young families. Full kitchen, TV/DVD player, computer/printer with Internet access, towels, sheets provided. Please consult the calendar for availability BEFORE making a request--our calendar is quite full during certain periods, check our mirror-image unit #903716 as well.

Booking process: The availability calendar shows only the dates which have been solidly booked or otherwise unavailable. We receive many requests for overlapping dates and have given up on the 'first-refusal' system, where we keep a list and give each person a chance to look over the offer separately. Instead, we have switched to a 'first come-first served' system whereby the first completed contract and payment received gets the apartment. If you are in a hurry, use the 'Book It Now' button--our calendar is up-to-the-minute in accuracy!

On a very rare occasion we may have to refund your payment because it's come later in time than another contract for the same dates.

Please *do not* phone with inquiries--it is much clearer for us to communicate via e-mail.

Contract and payment details: The contract outlines our responsibilities to one another and the payment scheme. In general:

You send a $300.00 (reservation/damage deposit) to secure your reservation (may need to be combined with other payments if your dates are close). At 60 days before your arrival, send 50% of the rental plus a $95.00 one-time cleaning charge. 14 days before your arrival, you will send the other 50%. The damage deposit is refundable within 5 days after you've checked out and left everything in good order.

About us: This is more than just a line of business for us--hospitality is an integral part of who we are. The studio is in an owner-occupied building, so you're not dealing with a faceless management agency with music on hold. We aspire to offer you the kind of experience we would give to our own family and friends in New York, where you enjoy the comforts of your own home while in one of the world's greatest cities and will want to return again and again.

If the dates you seek are not available, try our other apartment (in the same building): http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p903716

OUR SECOND HOLIDAY AT THIS SUPERB APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This apartment lives up to its promise in every respect. It is really well appointed, clean and well-maintained. The cheerful and friendly owner lives on site, and deals promptly and efficiently with any issues. Everything possible is done to make guests feel comfortable. As a retired couple, we love the location: the East Village, packed with restaurants (once again we particularly enjoyed eating at Northern Spy), the East River park just nearby, so much of Manhattan within walking distance, and the subway nearby when we want to go further afield - all with a great environment to come home to! A marvellous holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this lovely review--your return alone is an ultimate endorsement but we really appreciate the specifics that you mentioned, so much better for travelers to hear from one another through these reviews than for us to "toot our own horn." We look forward to your next visit, we are ready when you are!

GREAT BASE IN NYC

  • 5 of 5
great for a family of 4, we were a little apprehensive when we arrived as the location didn't seem as glitzy as mid town where we have previously stayed, but it is a really great area and had fun exploring and walking all over manhattan.

Owner's Response: Dear Ben and family,

We are glad that you chose to stay with us in the East Village, no it's not glitzy as Midtown and we wouldn't want to have it that way, it's a real neighborhood with one-of-a-kind cafes, restaurants, stores, and more. Great that we were able to share our home with you and please tell everyone back home about us. The 5-star rating means a lot!

BETTER THAN WE'D EVEN IMAGINED!

Better than we'd even imagined!
  • 5 of 5
The apartment was exactly as described - well appointed, roomy and very comfortable. And squeaky clean!! I'm always impressed when I find a salad spinner in a kitchen and this had an electric kettle as well! We loved the neighborhood - shopped both the Union and Tompkins Farmers Markets and found everything else we needed at the grocer on the corner. We visited 5 restaurants within blocks of the house - great food and interesting menus!
The bed was super comfortable and it was amazingly quiet at night, even though the snowplows were trying to keep up with the winter storm. The bonus for us was a great seat for the Super Bowl... two couches to stretch out on, our own kitchen for creating a gourmet charcuterie tray and a big screen!
And yes, we danced to records later that night - great selection, some of my favs!
We'll be back and we'd recommend this as a perfect apartment for couples/foodies wanting to 'live in the city for a couple days or a week'.

Owner's Response: Bev, thanks so much for your greetings and great words, my only regret is that I wasn't able to greet you in person, often our schedules don't mesh well with guests who are out during the day exploring, we do try hard to offer the little "extras" that we wished for whenever we would do a vacation rental. We love to anticipate needs and get ahead of them! Please let everyone back home know about us and come back soon, we are ready whenever you are!

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD, GREAT OWNER.

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed in this apartment during our 8 day vacation in NYC and I must say that we were floored by the cleanliness, general layout and all the amenities of this apt. The location is key here, the surrounding neighborhood (East Village) has so much to offer as far as nightlife, dining and cool/funky shops. Kudos to Thom, Luz and Ricardo for making this apt such a wonderful place to stay. We will be staying here again on our next visit and will be recommending it to all of our friends and family. Good work guys!

Car: not necessary

One block from historic Tompkins Square Park on the very street made famous by Jonathan Larson in his Tony Award-winning musical 'Rent,' the East Village is filled with a myriad of unique shops, bars, and restaurants. Live in a real international neighborhood with students, artists, and young families with easy access to everything that New York City has to offer. 10 minute walk from L subway at 1st Avenue & 14th Street and 2 bus lines stop on our corner, M14D and M9, connecting you to every subway line every 4-8 minutes. We are proud of our consistent 5-star ratings (and not a single owner-submitted review) which we intend to earn from every single guest!

The calendar for this property is quite full--you should check our newest property in the same building across the hall: Homeaway 903716. It has more luxurious appointments including a whirlpool, rainshower and full-sized kitchen. If you request a date that is clearly occupied on our calendar, please forgive us for not responding
