DESIGNER CHIC STEPS FROM TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK 350 FT² / 32 M²

East Village Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 on queen-sized bed and queen-sized sofa bed

Enjoy this newly renovated designer-outfitted jewel box 350-sq.ft. one-bedroom 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 block away from noise and bright lights. Though compact, it's 50% larger than most Manhattan hotel rooms and the two sleeping rooms have separate doors opening into a central kitchen/bath.

The property is owned and operated by native-born restaurateurs in an owner-occupied building. 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. Compact kitchen, TV/DVD player, computer with Internet access, towels and sheets provided. Please consult the calendar for availability BEFORE making a request--our calendar is quite full for 2013. Also check our newest apartment in the same building, #903716 as well as our larger loft studio #333327.

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 and online payments are instant and secure.

Please *do not* phone with inquiries--it is much clearer for us to communicate via e-mail. If your request is for a date clearly occupied on our availability calendar, please forgive us in advance for not responding.

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% (plus taxes). The damage deposit is refundable after you've checked out and left everything in good order; banks take 5-10 business days to process your refund.

About us: This is more than just a line of business for us--hospitality is an integral part of who we are. The apartment is in an owner-occupied building, so you're not dealing with a faceless management agency with music on hold, you are dealing with a neighbor and true host. 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.

Well-equipped and clean flat with tv, wifi, towels, bed linens, shower gel, shampoo, hygiene products ... 8 minutes walk from métro. Quiet neighborhood, friendly Italian restaurant 50 meters away. Epicerie/gourmet shop and many restaurants nearby. The owner answered all our questions before our trip.

Dear Cedric,

Many thanks for your good words about our property and your experience of it, I only regret that I did not get to greet you during your time here, you and your family were busy enjoying everything that New York has to offer!

We have learned much from the "art de vivre" that we have enjoyed in France during our many visits and try to offer our own version of the same here in New York. Your compliments mean a lot to us, please return again soon.

Amicalement,

Thom

Great stay!

The apartment is accurately described & pictured. Very clean! Thom was very helpful by providing information in his "Black Book" left in the living room. Bed was comfortable. We had 3 ladies sharing the space. Kitchen allowed us to have breakfast before setting out for our days activities. The bus was less than 1/2 block away and took us to all of the subways stations.
Owner's Response: Thanks, Lynn, for your stellar review! I am glad that we were able to meet your expectations and that you found our M14D connector bus to be useful for getting around. It comes so often that one doesn't need a schedule, you can get anywhere in downtown or midtown Manhattan in 30-45 minutes between that and any north-south subway line along 14th Street.

Good apartment in a great neighborhood

  • Submitted: Oct 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We rented this apartment for 4 nights in October and had a great time in the East Village/Lower East Side. The apartment is near lots of shops/restaraunts/pubs/cafes within a few blocks, and we found it easy to get anywhere in Manhattan from this location. We walked, used the subway and took cabs. The apartment is what you see in the pictures. We had two couples staying in the apartment so it was a little tight but worked out nicely for us to have the kitchen/bathroom divide the two sleeping areas. Thom and Luz were easy to deal with and there were no hassles at all with paying, getting into the apartment, checking out, etc. Thanks for a great stay!
Recommended for:  Adventure Seekers, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! At 350 square feet this apartment is 50% larger than the average Manhattan hotel room at a comparable cost and with the common area between the two sleeping areas, there is much more privacy than a typical hotel setup. Very glad that you enjoyed so much of what the East Village and Lower East Side have to offer and hope that you will come again soon and please let everyone back home know about us.

Excellent experience

The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Thom and Luz provided extra amenities to make it feel special, more like a hotel, with the added extras of having a whole apartment. Check-in and out was handled seamlessly as well.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the good words and please let everyone back home know about us! Very glad that everything worked out with your stay and that the transitions in and out went smoothly. Come back soon!

Map

Steps away from Tompkins Square Park in the East Village, you are in the midst of one of Manhattan's most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods, replete with cafes, restaurants, boutiques, galleries and bars, yet with easy access to all that New York has to offer. Two bus routes, M14D and M9, leave from our corner and connect you to any subway line every 4-8 minutes, or you can walk to the 1st Avenue station on the L in about 10 minutes.
