About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 5 Sleeps

***My calendar has been updated for late spring discounts!!! NYC in the spring is awesome! Please note the listing price is a starting rate. Summer rates are different*****

I'd say my place is unique because of the location, right in the heart of three neighborhoods (east village, soho, lower east side). A spacious lay out affords a comfortable stay for everyone. Two true bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment are great for privacy.

I may be flexible for arrival or departure times however must be coordinated prior to arrival.

Guest Access

You'll have access to my entire apartment. I won't be there during your stay. Kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms are all available. There is heat, a/c, cable tv, hi-speed and reliable internet. I also provide lots of towels, linens for your stay. Both bedrooms have a queen size bed and the living room has a convertible bed that sleep one.

Interaction with Guests

I will not be at the apartment or present during your stay. I pretty much meet, give keys and depart leaving you with my beautiful home. I will be local in case anything comes up. I'll be happy to provide any suggestions and there are also maps of the neighborhood in the apartment.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is fantastic and hands down probably the best in all of NYC. Here you'll get the true experience of New York City. The entire neighborhood is very safe day or night. There is so much to do you could literally spend your whole vacation here and not leave the neighborhood and not get bored!!:) There are restaurants, historical landmarks, bars, retail, boutiques, spas, parks, children parks, east river boardwalk and much more.

Getting Around

Transportation is very very convenient. The subway is one block away (F train) and the express trains are only a few blocks away (B,D). The 6, n, r are also very close by. You can get to anywhere in the city from my apartment.

Other Things to Note

All utilities are included, cable, WiFi, towels, linens etc

About John

I'm a hardworking and friendly New Yorker. I love to host guests and find pleasure in helping people get to know my wonderful city. I transplanted to NYC about 10 years ago and fell in love with the city the moment I arrived.

Why John chose East Village

Beautiful and comfortable for groups and the location is superb.

Location good, apartment ok

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. The owner and manager were good to work with and friendly. Only issue was that the front bedroom gets a lot of cigarette smoke from unit below. Not much they can do to control that- but it made it difficult for kids to sleep in that room- the smell was terrible. Apartment is updated and clean and has the necessities.

Great place in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great two nights staying in John's place in the East Village. Russ & Daughters is literally two blocks away! Plenty of other food & drink options abound, and it was fun just walking the neighborhoods. Beds were firm and John was nice enough to let us check in early. Recommended!

This was a great area for REAL New York Living! Lots of good places to eat, Katz Deli and Boulton & Watt to name a few. There is a great local grocery(Key Foods) about 4 blocks away. If you wanted something different, there is a Whole Foods around the corner. The subway/train is also VERY close, only 1/2 block. So it was very easy to get anywhere in Manhattan you wanted to go. John's place was clean and had plenty of towels & blankets. We were on the 4th floor so the stairs were tough with our luggage when we arrived. After that, we just considered it good exercise! John was also very accommodating. We were able to 'check-in' early. Also because we had a 2 people running in the NYC Marathon we needed a place to store our luggage and he was able to store them for us. There was a fee, but it was better than hauling all 6 suitcases and our carryons' all over NYC. I would definitely recommend staying in one of John's apartments in East Village!

Very clean apt in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the East Village. The subway (F) very close so can get to about anywhere, or by Uber. Great location East 1st St & 1st Ave right off Houston. Great restaurants & bars nearby. We loved dinner @ “Lil Frankie’s” right around the corner (800 feet away). The apt is located just across Houston from Whole Foods & Katz Deli too.

I highly recommend this stay, if you are able to walk up to the 4th floor apt.

Great spot for our girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and close to lots of bars and restaurants which was great for our girls trip. We comfortably slept 5, there were extra towels and sheets for the pull out which was great. The owner was quick to get back to me, and also provided us a spot to store our bags prior to check it. All in all a great spot to stay. The 4 flights of stairs was the only downfall with carrying up and down our suitcases, but that's what you get in NYC.

Car: not necessary

You'll be in the heart of the east village. Everything is close by tourist attractions, grocery store, food, drinks, retail, landmarks, and the subway. You'll love the neighborhood!
