Overview

About the property

Location, Perfect Views, Tons of Light, Flawless Apartment, Near Everything

This is a beautiful 1BR in a perfect location, that can easily accommodate up to 3 people. Far better than a tiny hotel room in the NYC for less money.

Perfect for a get-away in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time in Jake's apartment! Loved the view....spent time just looking out the windows watching the activity below. It was nice to have the option of cooking dinner or going out and we did both! Invited our daughter over who lives in NYC...it was nice to have her over for dinner along with her boyfriend. It felt like home. Jake was great in accommodating an early key pick up on our day of arrival since our plane came in at 5:30 am. Very convenient so we didn't have to figure out what to do with our luggage in the meantime. Everything went smoothly. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to spend time in the heart of the city! And, I'd recommend taking in a tour or two at the Tenement Museum which is nearby! One of my favorite sites to visit while in NYC, so I was delighted to find out the apartment was so close to it. Thanks Jake for the thought you have put into making your place a great place to stay while visiting NYC!

Live like a local in style

  • 5 of 5

Great base for living like a local and exploring the Village bars and eateries - try the Berkli Parc across the street for brunch. We didn't meet Jake but the apartment had everything we needed, good view, well-maintained. Communication was good, would recommend.

The place was great, I never got to meet Jake but always easy to get a hold of for anything you would need. Very nice part of town, lots of things to do more than you could ever imagine.

Thanks for the stay!!

A Delightful Apartment With Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Our host was very kind and thoughtful. The views were beyond belief especially of the Empire State Building at night with endless changing bright colors. We felt we were a part of the sky as flocks of birds soared delightfully right past our floor to ceiling windows. It was a wonderful experience staying in such a location. We just wanted to sit there taking it all in. The Essex Market was a couple af blocks down and so much fun for getting the feel of the city. Many different vendors offering all manner of foods and goods...very interesting and wonderfully helpful. We eat organic as much as possible and we found everything we needed especially with Emily and her daughter. The people in the apartment building were so helpful. The elevator was a definate plus as was having a washer and dryer in the building. Nice hardwood floors, very comfortable bed, great TV, full frig with thoughtful snacks, etc left inside. Deliveries right to the door...cabbies arrive at a moments notice. We say this was so well organized by Jake, our host, that it ran perfectly. The only thing we regret is we forgot to get a photo of the Empire State Building lit up at night. We will get it for sure next time. Thank you Jake for the best abode yet. P.S Jake even had a cool surfboard in the corner and my husband is a surfer. You can't lose on this great stay. We cannot wait to visit again...mesmerizing views.

Fantastic unit in central, safe location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect unit for three adult women having a girl's trip to NYC. Really, really close to all subways, but also close and pleasant walks to china town, little Italy, NYU and surrounding areas. The unit is as described and in pics. Unit large enough to sleep three adults comfortably, and the bathroom is pleasantly large, as is the full size kitchen. The unit is on the 5th floor with an elevator. The owner, Jake, was pleasant to work with. He provides detailed instructions that are easy to follow and he made himself available for all my questions. I'm definitely staying at Jake's again in the future.

Felt like a local

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 7 nights on our first visit to New York, after staying midtown earlier in our trip.

Our check-in and check-out was smooth, Jake even tried to accommodate our early arrival. The apartment was as described, very clean, and was well supplied with linen and towels, and a comfortable bed in a quiet building. Subway was a 2 minute walk, plenty of good restaurants and a convenience store nearby; and walking distance to China Town and Little Italy, etc. First impressions of the neighborhood were a little concerning, however look beyond that and you can immerse yourself and really feel like you are truly experiencing this vibrant city, we felt safe and comfortable 24/7.

And as mentioned in other reviews, the sirens and horns are a reality of this city, and provided some entertainment from our window, whilst admiring the Empire State Building in the distance.
