I am an artist, writer, musician, producer. I have been in the same band for 20 years. We travel all over the world and so I would now like to share my apartment with others coming to New York. I love people and meeting them is the best part of what I do. I love to laugh, am very liberal, and enjoy different languages and cultures.
I live in this location. but I travel a lot and I also own a house in Hawaii that I live in as well.
being in New York City. one of the most exciting places in the world for art, opera, music, eating, discovering new things.
Elizabeth is an excellent host, very professional and friendly, and we are more than happy to recommend her (and, if travel takes us back to the big apple, to deal with her again). When we messed up dates of arrival (due to our own silliness), she was able to accommodate our requesting an extra night at the last minute. When we arrived, she did far more than hand us the keys - she oriented us to the city, provided maps, directions, suggestions when we asked for them. As an artist/musician, Elizabeth is very in-touch with life and culture in the city, and was a superb resource in getting us up to speed on what was what.
The apartment worked perfectly for everything my wife and I needed when we were staying in NYC for just over a week. It's in a REAL neighbourhood - not a jungle of concrete with no soul. Subway line is very close, within a few minutes' walk, and it is ridiculously easy to get from this apartment to wherever you need to be. This region of town feels very safe, day or night. The apartment itself has got some serious soul, too (the pictures on this site provide only a hint of what is to be noticed in terms of awesome - though not always quite PG13 - decor)! It goes without saying that the apartment was very clean and tidy when we arrived, and that Elizabeth will expect you to leave it that way as well.
There is no safe in the apartment, but there are plenty of neat spots to hide valuables (cash, passport, etc.) that's something that is important to you. The apartment has dead bolts on the door, and the building itself requires an access code to enter from the street (much more secure than where I live now!)
A compact kitchen at the entrance has a fridge (SUCH A WIN) and an oven / gas stovetop (ALSO WIN), cupboards with plates/cutlery/etc, a table, and some space to drop your stuff; in the bathroom Elizabeth provides cupcake-smelling soap (yay!), and of course there is the shower which Elizabeth will tell you has limited hot water (but it worked just fine for us); the larger main room is simply charming, has much more space for dropping your stuff, and has a window with a view of the street; the bedroom is intelligently organized, with a comfortable bed up top and a closet section below (think IKEA living solutions).
It worth noting that Elizabeth lives in this apartment when others are not staying there, and for this reason it is NOT a barren and empty
Hemos estado 1 semana con mi marido y la hemos pasado excelente. El departamento tiene excelente ubicación. Es un placer caminar por el barrio y descubrir bares, locales y restaurantes divinos. Esta equipado con todo lo que uno necesita, es limpio y luminoso. Vecinos amigables. Elizabeth fue muy amable y solidaria desde el primer momento de la comunicación. Recomiendo para 1 pareja o 1 persona sola. Enjoy IT!!
My partner and I rented Elizabeth's apartment for 11 nights and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Elizabeth is a fantastic host who was extremely flexible on arrival and departure times. We were greeted by her upon arrival and were shown around, ensuring we knew where all the necessities were and were told to make ourselves at home. The apartment is gorgeous and was nice and clean and we were provided with fresh bedding and towels. There was plenty of space for us to store our things (including 4 large suitcases!). We were told to make use of the toiletries which included shower gel, shampoo/conditioner etc. as well as any condiments etc. in the fridge (including beer which was a nice touch!).
Elizabeth was really happy to share her knowledge of the East Village and its surrounding areas, giving us great tips on the best coffee shops (which is actually right below the apartment), juice bars, restaurants, museums etc. She also provides a handy basket of goodies including a subway map of NY, flyers/leaflets for museums and take-out menu's for all the best eating spots which made it a lot easier for us to plan our days out.
The apartment location is fantastic. It's only a short walk to Union Square which is great for the subway, although we ended up walking to most places as there is so much to see out on the streets. The neighbourhood itself is really friendly and safe both in the day and at night.
I would recommend the East Village and this apartment to anyone who is looking to stay in NY but who would like to go home at the end of the day away from the crazy hustle and bustle of the tourist areas and stay somewhere really chilled and quirky. I had visited NY once before and stayed in a hotel, but after my latest experience, staying in an apartment is the only way to go. This trip made me fall even more in love with the city and I would definitely stay here again when I visit next (if you'll have me! :]). Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us and we both hope to see you again some day.
This apartment is New York's best kept secret! The website photos depicted the unit very accurately. Great location in a safe and cool neighborhood - I wish I had more time to explore the area. Subway is a convenient 1-2 blocks away and easy to get to any part of the city. The apartment is spacious by New York standards and the rate is especially fabulous! The unit was very clean and well maintained. So many restaurants and shops in close proximity - we had the greatest pizza at Luzzo's on 1st Ave and and the famous Momofuku Noodle Bar is a block away. The best part about staying here was working with Elizabeth. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city, helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends.
My son and visited New York for a graduation present and stayed at Elizabeth's apartment. The place looks just like the pictures and was very comfortable for two people. I used the bed and my son slept on an air mattress in the living room and it worked out really well. The apartment was very clean and had all of the amenities needed for a week's stay.
The best part though is the location in the East Village. There is a great little coffee shop right down stairs and many great restaurants within a short walking distance. We found it easy to get to all parts of the city from here by walking, taking the subway or a taxi.
Elizabeth was out of the country at the time but her friend met us right on time and was very helpful. Also, Elizabeth left an instructional letter suggesting restaurants which we tried and loved. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to New York.
Start your experience by arriving early (I arrived late THINKING I was early – it’s a work in progress) and sipping a cappuccino directly below the apartment in the Ost café. You make the call, within minutes you are met by a beautiful woman, maybe two beautiful women. You are taken around the corner, given the secret code, and climb a few flights of stairs. Luggage may be involved, but is not central to the experience. Two keys, and the door opens in on another world – an artist’s world. You feel immediately at ease. You are graciously given a guided tour and you try to focus (did I mention the beautiful woman?). GPS is not required. Everything is conveniently close to everything else in the apartment, yet all feels wonderfully spacious and open. If the windows are up, the street life wafts in - beckoning, coaxing, nay stirring your expectations for an unforgettable time in New York. As the keys drop into your hand you think – “I’m in the Village; ground zero of raw, sweet urban life itself – how cool is this”. Maybe you settle down on the sofa for a while and just absorb everything. Finally you break the reverie and start making your calls to meet the people you’ve come to meet. And that will not be a problem (unless they don’t want to meet you) – as you are minutes from the subway. L-Train to Union Square, and Gotham is your oyster (or you can simply jettison yourself into Brooklyn, no questions asked). You can go to them, or they can come to you – and if they do, you will be able to entertain as you have never entertained, and they will love you. Café’s, clubs, music, food, laughter, energy, streets, parks. Your kingdom awaits.
The most interesting man in the world once said “When I come you New York, I don’t always stay in the East Village, but when I do, I prefer Elizabeth’s” And now I embrace that philosophy as well.
