Overview

East Village Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxe studio loft (50m²/ 550 ft²) sleeps 4 adults on queen bed and queen 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 550-sq.ft. columnless 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. Similar to our 5-star #333327, this apartment has a brand-new whirlpool tub and rainshower in addition! 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, cable TV/DVD, computer/printer with Internet access, towels, sheets provided.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this place for a week with my mom and it was such a wonderful experience. The place is beautiful and looked much bigger in person. It was very clean, well-stocked, quiet at night, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The neighborhood was also great, very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go in NY. I had never stayed in the East Village before but will definitely stay there again. The owner was also very nice and responsive both before our trip and answered any questions during the trip. The first floor location was also nice. Highly recommend this place!!

Un appartement idéalement bien placé à NY

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans cet appartement situé dans le East Village, proche de tous commerces, à 10mn d'un arrêt de bus (et 12 mn du métro). L'appartement est très agréable, même pour 4 personnes, bien qu'il n'y ait qu'une seule pièce comprenant un grand lit (très confortable) et un canapé-lit qui a tout à fait convenu à nos 2 enfants. Cette pièce est lumineuse car elle bénéficie de 2 grandes fenêtres en verre renforcé. Salle de bains agréable car bénéficiant de lumière du jour. Petit bémol: impossible d'ouvrir les fenêtres car elles donnent directement sur la rue, mais nous habitons en maison et n'avons pas de vis-à-vis, nous avons donc l'habitude d'ouvrir en grand, cela ne gêne peut-être pas ceux qui habitent en appartement. Sinon, l'appartement était propre et nous avons trouvé tout type de renseignements pour notre séjour, on se sentait comme chez des amis. A part ça, nous avons bien aimé cet appartement et le quartier nous a beaucoup plu.

Very clean and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was better than expected for New York accommodation.

The apartment was very clean and well stocked. The kitchen even had dishwasher liquid, a variety of teas and a kettle!

There were also plenty of fresh towels and the owner was quick to respond to any requests.

Chocolates and red wine were a nice touch to our very comfortable stay.

Repeat visitor!

I would highly recommend this apartment! This is our third stay here. It's spacious, clean, quiet and in a great area. It provides such a nice place to get away from a busy day touring the city. We love the easy access to our neighborhood East Village favorites, Tompkins Square Park, Maiden Lane Café, Café Mogador. This apartment has great amenities, is beautifully maintained, the owner is exceptionally nice and very helpful --always making our stay very pleasant! Thank you Thom!

Perfect stay, nice apartment, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying with Thom for one week in Oct 2014. It was a great week and great experience overall.

From the first contact throughout our stay Thom has been very responsive, helpful and meticulously dependable. Compared with other experiences when traveling remote soil, this was a great experience by its own!

We owe several nice experiences in NYC to Thom - thanks to a quick lecture on how to rent bikes in NYC and East Village, a brief cultural review of Broadway shows, and an effective introduction to the perks of East Village.

The studio including kitchen and bathroom are spacious, very clean, and touched by an advertent hand for furnishing. The furniture is nice and all appliances are in good shape. The floor is wood and tiles - which is very nice for coming into a rented apartment. Connecting to the internet was straight forward; there is even a PC (which we have not used) and a printer (which we used once for printing tour tickets:) provided. There is enough space for four (including the luggage) and our boys rated the sleeper sofa comfortable ... We always felt at home waking up for a fresh start into the city with a cup of "home brewed" coffee or returning from the city with tired feet for a last glass of wine.

The neighborhood of East Village turned out to be a great pick for us. The street with the apartment is quiet ... and very quiet in comparison to many other parts of the city. The neighborhood has plenty of mini markets, eateries, and restaurants. City Bikes are around the corner at Tompkins Square, a bike place for day rentals just 10 minutes away. Bus stops are around the corner and the next subway station is about 10 min away - all very convenient for exploring the city.

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche in dieser Ferienwohnung. Vom ersten Kontakt an aus Deutschland und während unseres Aufenthalts kommunizierte Thom stets prompt, war sehr hilfsbereit und ausgesprochen verlässlich. In East Village findet man ruhige Ecken und trendige Strassen; es gibt viele kleine Läden und Restaurants, die für den Beginn und Ausklang des Tages gute Gelegenheiten für ein Alltags-New-York-Erleben bieten. Und wer sich im Deutschen sicherer fühlt als im Englischen, kann mit Thom auch in Deutsch gut kommunizieren ... :)

Overall, this is a definite recommendation.

Dear Thom, thanks again & alles Gute!

Owner's Response: So wonderful to read a thorough and positive review such as this, we know that travelers rely on the actual experiences of guests like you, and the more detailed, the better! You know how much we really enjoy what we do, which is to offer a very particular experience of a real neighborhood that is accessible to all the great atrractions of a world city yet a quiet retreat after a day of being out and about. It is such fun for me to practice my language skills, I feel like I am traveling the world through hosting people like you! Please let everyone at home know that they have a welcoming spot in New York whenever they come through, look forward to your return. Ich fuehle mich sehr stolz diese ausgezeichnete Bewertung zu lesen, weil wir wissen dass Reisende verlassen sich auf den tatsaechlichen Erfahrungen der Gaeste, und desto detaillierter, desto besser! Es macht Spass, Deutsch zu ueben, weil ich wenige Gelegenheiten Deutsch zu sprechen. Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Rückkehr. Tschuess!

Amazing apartment! Quiet place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stayed had to be divided between this apartment and the other one Thom owns ( p354370) because neither apartment were available for 2 weeks straight. We stay 1 week on each apartment because I really wanted to stay at Thom's place, he got the best reviews out there! Thom was very nice to work with me. This place is very different from the p354370, this one is much bigger, more space everywhere, I would even say more luxury. The towels were bigger too, what I loved. The bathroom was huge, the studio style bedroom and TV room together was nice and large. But this studio is really really nice, its exactly like the pictures, but larger! I didn't expect for it to be that big ( since it's NYC) . What I liked was the Kitchen was separate from the bedroom. The kitchen was pretty big too and had everything we needed. Also had coffee, sugar, salt, filtered water.

The neighborhood is very QUIET, I',m a very light sleeper and was concerned about the car noises, but we had none. The place was very clean and the furniture pretty new. Thom leaves a lot of reading material for us for the city. He also taught us how to use the bus system, we were just using Subway and he said we could also use the bus with the same Metrocard ( free) we bought a 7 day unlimited metro card, which worked out very nice. We took the subway EVERYWHERE and then buses too! There are lots of restaurants and mini markets around. I felt very safe walking around the neighborhood even late at night with my boys. We ate ate Eleven B and also order pizza from them, they were very nice and friendly, and the pizza was great! We also ate at the Tompkins bagels ( loved the homemade cream cheese) right on B avenue. Another restaurant we had brunch was at Friends of A Farmer, I Just loved their pancakes! fresh blueberry pancake or the apple one . Its a little far to walk ( 77 Irving Place by East 18th ) and very nice and homey, but a little expensive.

Anyway, I really recommend this place, it's very clean, nice area, quiet and what makes even nicer is that the owner is very nice and very HELFUL and make your stay very pleasant! Thanks for wine and chocolates! I will recommend to all!

Esse apartamento é demais! Fiquei por 1 semana e adorei, me senti segura em caminhar com meus filhos tarde da noite. O bairro é quieto e calmo. O subway e onibus estao bem perto, tem muitos restaurantes e mercadinhos perto. O apt é hiper limpo e os moveis novinhos. Os lencois macios e cheirosos. Recomendo mesmo! Thx Thom!
