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. Please consult the calendar for availability BEFORE making a request--our calendar is up-to-date and does not fill until we receive payment.

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing and thorough review! I loved getting to meet you and your family and very happy that we could host you in the city and share an experience of it that we local people enjoy every day. It's great to read your feedback on how quiet our neighborhood is, it really is a small village in the midst of a big city. Please return again soon!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
From the pre-stay correspondence with Thom to the ease of the self-check in procedures, the arrangements were seamless. From the time we arrived at the apartment for our 2 week stay, we were delighted with the spaciousness, cleanliness and comfort of the accommodation. The location in the East Village is a wonderful and convenient base from which to explore New York with great access to the subway and buses. The black book that was provided, as well as access to the computer and printer in the apartment, were fabulous tools to guide us. We particularly enjoyed trying out some of the suggestions for dinner and coffee that were mentioned. We were 1st time visitors to NY, and this information was invaluable. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone coming to New York who wants to stay in a regular neighbourhood away from the major tourist areas, but still within easy travelling distance.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place to stay and made our NYC visit the most comfortable we’ve experienced! This apartment was perfect. We found the location gave us easy access to all things NYC but also provided a nice neighborhood for casual downtime amid the city--particularly the Tompkins Square Park, local coffee shop and Italian restaurant just down the street. The apartment is very roomy and well appointed—and the bed was especially comfortable particularly after a day of walking the city.
Our host was extremely responsive and provided great information and tips on the neighborhood and city.
I would highly recommend this apartment! Thank you Thom!

Excellent home away from home in NYC

  • 5 of 5
This being our first visit to NYC, we wanted to experience a neighborhood. We were delighted with the location of the apartment and its amenities. The bottle of wine on that first night was an especially nice touch and as others have said Thom and Luz are wonderful hosts and take great care of their renters. We loved walking through Tompkins Square Park and thoroughly enjoyed the many restaurants and cafés that are so bountiful in the area. Here are a few not to be missed and within 10 minutes walk : Caracas Arepas (worth waiting for a table), Le Village for dessert (chocolate fondant cake), Café Orlin (for breakfast or lunch, superb food and you can easily spot celebrities), Café Mogador (lamb tagine), Westville Restaurant (everything is good) and Taquieros for great tacos. There are grocery stores, pharmacies, bodegas, delis, wine stores, bakeries, etc within easy walking distance. It was wonderful to return to our relatively calm neighborhood after spending the day in some of the city's busiest areas and attractions. The area is beautiful, lively and open late. Don't miss out on this great place, we will be back ! Thanks again Luz for your help !

Owner's Response: Thanks for the enthusiastic review and great recommendations of some of our favorite local spots and some new ones as well! We are always learning about our own neighborhood through the eyes of our guests, and love to share our point-of-view of having the best of both access to all of New York City's hustle-and-bustle and retreating to a quiet residential neighborhood with everything one would want and need. We are ready for your return when you are!
