Lower Manhattan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Two Level Penthouse Duplex In Historic Building In The Heart Of Soho

The Location

The penthouse apartment is on the corner of Prince and Mercer--which many have called the 'Center of the Universe of Soho'. The N/R, B/D/F/M, 6, subway lines are all within a 3 block radius. This is the chicest of neighborhoods with luxury boutiques, trendy shops and a dizzying array of the best restaurants and bars in the city, all outside your doorstep. Fashionista shoppers will delight in strolling for hours amid the shops to find that amazing pair of Rag and Bone jeans or Chanel handbag. From your window perch, catch a glimpse of a sunglass-clad celebrity coming out of The Mercer Hotel as they dodge the paparazzi and duck into the ubiquitous black SUV. Sip a coffee from Dean & Deluca as you experience the best people-watching in the city. It's all here and you're in the heart of it.

The Space

Large 3500 sqf duplex apartment with outstanding style and location. This is the true Soho experience. It will be your home away from home and a haven to return to after an exciting and exhausting day exploring all the city has to offer. The building is on the historical register and has fantastic views up and down the cobblestone streets of Soho.

4 bedrooms. 1 bedroom with King size bed and ensuite bath (TV in room), 1 bedroom with Queen size bed (TV in room), 1 bedroom with Queen size bed, 1 bedroom with full-size bed

Great Soho Location

  • 5 of 5

Our New York vacation was fantastic thanks to the incredible location and space in Carrie's apartment. We were met in person, given complete instructions about the place and also a lovely gift basket with lots of goodies. The apartment had plenty of dishware and towels. The description of rooms and space was accurately described in advance so we knew what to expect. The space was three flights up with no elevator, so just be aware. And the unit is two levels. It was quiet and there were AC units in each room.

Better than advertised! Possibly the best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting vacation accommodations for more than 30 years and this may have been the best one yet!

The amenities, the location, the availability etc - all the key elements are there for a successful vacation. And what makes this the best are the real over the top advantages:

- The apartment is larger than even the photos show, providing a comfortable living space for family or for several couples.

- The beds in all rooms are very comfortable, and we are pretty particular about our night time comfort

- The hosts are very accommodating and friendly.

For us it was the perfect match. A family of five from abroad, sharing the space with two couples from out of state, and entertaining each evening with an even larger group of friends. We loved the ease of use of the up to date entertainment features like apple tv, streamed audio, etc. The kitchen was large enough and very well equipped to prepare dinners for 11 or more persons - given that one accepts the fact that the service ware is a hodge podge of shapes and sizes. A real treat when so many people are together but want to mingle.

To enjoy your stay as much as we did ours note you have to be comfortable sharing the bath rooms, and bring ear plugs for a good night's sleep.

We'll definitely look to return to the loft in SoHo if the opportunity arises.

Excellent Accommodations and Location

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we (3 adult couples) had a wonderful 4 night stay at this property. The location was perfect for our activities. We were within walking distance to Freedom Tower, Memorial and Museum. Subway entrances were a block away and Little Italy and Chinatown were 3 blocks away. There is a convenient casual bar/restaurant downstairs, with 2 very nice restaurants on the opposite corners. This Soho location is also in the very heart of street and upscale shopping. Although the 3 floor walk-up is a challenge with luggage, the apartment is worth the effort. Each floor is extremely spacious with 2 large living areas. The apartment was very clean and well-appointed and comfortable in an eclectic style. Although the bedrooms had window units, without central a/c, one should be aware of the temperature forecast. There are an abundance of windows which provide both natural light and evening cross breezes. The owner was very hospitable and actually met us at the onset to show us around, answer any questions and offer a bottle of wine and snacks. He was always available by cell phone and even assisted us with dinner reservations (dinner at the Lore, on the opposite corner was our favorite), as well as D'Anicos in Little Italy. The activities we would recommend would be the Freedom Memorial and Museum (plan on 1/2 day), the Circle Line Ferry (Lower Manhattan), biking in Central Park, Broadway play followed by people watching in Times Square. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends!

Fantastic spot for a family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place in Soho for our Thanksgiving family celebration. Lots of room for laying around after a big meal, shops close by for those who still had energy, and the subway easily accessible for our Broadway shows. I do wish the fourth bedroom was more private and that there were more bathrooms. But, this IS Manhattan, so we expected it. The kitchen was wonderful and having the Nespresso cafe across the street, ended up being our go to for a quick shot of espresso. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! Regarding the 4th bedroom, we actually recently renovated and now there is a true, private 4th bedroom instead of the daybed. It's the bedroom pic with the new leather massage chair too! Hope to see you next time you're in NYC!

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is roomy and in a fantastic location. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend it to a friend. We had 3 couples traveling together and there was more than enough room. Our hosts, Lisa and Brian, were the best! Thank you for a wonderful new York city experience!

The BEST location in NYC!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group (3 couples) stayed here President's weekend. The location cannot be beat. It is right across from the Mercer Hotel (which for 3 tiny rooms at the Mercer, it would've cost us a lot more!), so it's like staying there, but better!

The apartment was gorgeous and huge for NY. I am going to ask what kind of sofas those are because they are the most comfortable ever. And my boyfriend loved the big screen projector TV. It was so great to be able to get up in the morning, make coffee (they left us a pound of gourmet coffee in our welcome basket!) and lounge around with our friends before planning our day.

We loved the feel of the apartment. Very homey and cozy. The others we looked at seemed like slick rental properties. This really felt like we were staying at a friend's apartment in New York.

Lisa was great. She greeted us and walked us through the apartment. There was a basket of goodies with snacks, mini cupcakes, coffee and a bottle of wine. We were there for a week and anytime we had a questions, she was there to help.

A bonus was we each paid a little extra to have daily cleaning. It was like the convenience of a hotel with the comfort of home!

Amazing apartment. We had some friends who live in Brooklyn come over and they said it was one of the best places they've ever seen in NYC. :)

We loved everything about our stay. We will be back for sure!
