Sunny Heart of East Village Loft-Style Apt

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom/Bathroom, Modern, open-plan, friendly building, excellent neighborhood

Enjoy our sunny, happy, recently renovated loft-style apartment in the heart of the East Village. Just half a block from Tompkins Square Park and in the midst of fabulous restaurants, bars, and cafes.

The apartment is open loft style with the kitchen and living room in one space. There is a master bedroom (double bed) off of the living room and off the master bedroom is a small kids room with bunk beds. It's great for a couple or family.

The F train and the L train are a 12 minute walk. Buses are across the park. But who needs to leave the neighborhood? It's funky and full of eclectic neighbors, community gardens and independently owned businesses. We love it dearly.

It's a six floor walk up, which is a trek but it gets you that lovely tree-house view when you get to the top. And we've got a zippy wireless connection.

It's a family friendly building. A great base for exploring the city.

Very Cozy Apartment, Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed in Sue's apartment for two weeks and we had an amazing stay. The apartment is very clean and has a true authentic feel. The bedrooms are small, but the living and dinning/kitchen area are very roomy. The whole apartment is filled with interesting books, music instruments and green plants on the windows. Note to TV junkies, there is no TV but there is WiFi, so bring your laptop/tablet. There is a great stereo system with sound coming out of the ceiling. There is a great expresso machine in the kitchen. The bathroom is super clean and super charming, with a large shower open area (you have to go over a knee-high separation to access the shower area) and plenty of linen.

Sue is very nice and reachable. She was also very accommodating regarding leaving our luggage in the apartment the day of our check out until our actual departure from NYC. She also let us use her Whitney museum family pass, and use whatever food they had left in the fridge/freezer.

We stayed during the 2 hottest summer weeks in NYC with outside temperatures reaching 96F. There is a AC window unit in the main bedroom which we cranked up all the way when we were back in the evening and it would decently cool the apartment. At night, we would close the main bedroom door, keep the door between the 2 bedrooms open and the unit would keep us perfectly cool at night even when set on a middle setting. There is also a fan, but we didn't need with AC running.

The apartment is located on the 6th floor and there isn't an elevator. It is also located below the roof that unfortunately was under renovation during our stay. It was too bad because it looked like a cool roof where to have breakfast or an evening ding with view on the Chrysler building on one side ad the freedom tower on the other side. Hopefully, the roof will be done next time we come to NYC.

The location is perfect, in the heart of East Village. This is a very lively location. People going about their business during the day, walking their dogs, taking their kids to Tompkins Square Park, next to the ladies doing their daily TaiChi dance routine and farmers market once a week. In the evening, you'll find plenty of eateries and restaurants of all kind, including a very popular ice-cream parlor. There is also a supermarket a few blocks away and a subway station 10-12 minutes away.

All in all, I totally recommend Sue's place. You'll feel as if you are actually part of East Village in no time.
