*My Review


best way to explore New York and Brooklyn.The location is perfect with

the subway stops just 3 short blocks away.Easy walking distances to

Soho,Tribeca,Chinatown,Nolita,Little Italy,Greenwich Village,the

Highline and even the Brooklyn,Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges to


The East Village location is full of great restaurants,bars and gourmet

delis.Even a well-stocked wine shop just across the street.And downtown

prices are almost half of what you pay in Mid-town restaurants.If you

have a car,street parking is easy and there is even a guy who will move

your car for New York's alternate side of the street parking scheme.

The pictures of the apartment don't do it justice....ground floor access

so no hassle with luggage or shopping.Super high ceilings give a real

sense of spaciousness.

Everything is spanking brand-new(bathrooms,kitchen,appliances,TV,)and

super clean.

Keys were delivered by Fedex once the deposit was paid.Alarm is easy to

operate and the back garden is an incredible bonus in a city like New

York.Every detail was handled by email,including payment.

If you are say,two couples travelling from Europe,the price works out to

be less than 100 euros X person X night...Try to find a Manhattan hotel

for even two,three or four times that price!!!

On our 6 day trip we were able to take in all of the nearby areas I

mentioned above plus Central Park,the Theater District,a boat ride,a day

in Brooklyn,5th avenue and shopping in Chelsea and Century 21 by the

World Trade Center.

The local restaurants,all within a 10 block walk feature EVERYTHING from


Even if it's raining there is a great Italian place (Il Posto)right next

door.In addition,the apartment's "bible" is stocked with suggestions

and flyers from nearby restaurants that deliver in no time.

All in all,an unbeatable and luxurious way to see New York at true

budget prices.What you save on having breakfast(in the garden)instead of

hotel breakfasts will pay for nice dinners!!

Highly Recommended!!!!

Wonderful Stay in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. It was really spacious (definitely by NY standards) with 2 good sized bedrooms in the back, facing the garden. We slept well since we weren't bothered by street noise or loud neighbors in the street. The bathrooms were very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay, including really nice plush towels, soap, shampoo, etc. The entire apartment was well-maintained and very clean. It was so nice to have 2 bedrooms And 2 bathrooms. While we didn't cook in the apartment, the kitchen was very spacious and well stocked so that you could easily cook. The living room was cozy for relaxing at the end of day. We really felt at home and comfortable in this apartment.

The location was great with lots of restaurants just down the street or within a few blocks. I really enjoyed a little matcha cafe nearby (great matcha lattes). We walked to the subway and could get to places around the city easily. We also walked over to Soho for shopping, a bit of a walk, but not too bad. I loved feeling like a local and not a tourist in this neighborhood.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to stay again the next time we're in NY.

This place was in the best location. The apartment was huge and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and place was modern and clean. Avion was super efficient and organised. I could go on and on about how brilliant this place was.

Perfect apartment exceeding our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Often in life when something seems to be too good to be true it is. This apartment was the exception to that rule even better than we had hoped; it was pretty much perfect in every detail. Apartment was gorgeous, clean, gourmet kitchen, quiet, spacious, nicely furnished, comfy beds, unbelievably nice patio, great neighborhood. Walking distance to Katz deli and Supper for dinner. Close to subways. This is the part of Manhattan you want to be in. Avion was great to work with, easy to contact. Would highly recommend to family and friends and hope to stay there again on another visit to wonderful NY.

Better than you will expect

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. Extremely clean. Very nicely furnished and fully equipped - down to a washer/dryer. All the rooms were surprisingly large - especially for NYC. Family room can easily seat 5 or 6; dining area for 6 or 8; huge kitchen. The master was large, private bath; walk-in closet; very comfortable. Extra pillows and blankets and tons of towels and related needs. Very cool garden patio off the master with sitting space for many. Second bed and bath were great. The bedrooms are in the back so they are quite and dark.

Plus - there are several great restaurants on that very block - plus a cupcake store and a bodega at the end of the block. Nice upscale grocery store about 2 blocks away. And from the location, you can walk to everything in lower Manhattan - Nolita, Solita, Soho, etc.

It is on the upper end of what we normally like to spend, but this was well worth it. If we come back to the east Village, this will be the place again.

Plus, the owner emailed the day we arrived to see if everything was OK and refunded the security deposit mere days after departure. A class place and operation.

This apartment was wonderful!

This apartment was spacious, well appointed, with everything we needed for a vacation stay, close to great restaurants, and easy access to the Metro. The prop manager was very responsive to questions, great customer service, and the deposit was refunded very quickly. A wonderful experience!
