The sun's always shining in this bright and cheery glade, whether curled on the comfy couch with a book or admiring the view of Seward Park's canopy. Essex Street II may be a pleasant perch, but don't neglect a stroll down to the forest floor. Roots run deep in the Lower East Side, and the neighbourhood's trails still thrum with the historic memories of fresh immigrants, as well as the passions of modern day settlers.
Your host lives to feel the wind in her leaves, whirling about the globe like a maple seed on the breeze. A lawyer with an eye for design, she's filled her home with treasures collected along her journeys.
The forest for the trees
Let's get to the root of the matter: this shabby chic gem makes a delightful roost. Your host has carefully cultivated the down-to-earth vibe, which germinates in the distressed antique furniture, rustic knick-knacks, and glossy hardwood floors. Taste the fruits of your labours in the gorgeous kitchen, which features a huge black granite counter top and breakfast bar graced with a trio of leather bar chairs – perfect for friends to sit and chat while you cook. Colourful doll magnets dance on the refrigerator, and exotic house-plants bask in the sunny windows. It may be tempting to secret yourself away in this sprightly glen, but we encourage you to branch out and sample the colourful enchantments of the Lower East Side's blossoming street art and tasty eateries.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.
Why Lower East Side: Once heavily populated by European immigrants, the Lower East Side beautifully melds 19th century history with 21st century appeal. Long renowned for its gritty integrity, today the 'LES' is famed for the art, food, shopping, music and nightlife scenes that are shaping Manhattan below 14th Street.
Like its hipster brethren across the Williamsburg Bridge, the LES is a veritable haven for the skinny-jean wearing and unkempt-beard-sporting set. The downtown denizens mix in their natural habitat with wandering tourists still seeking the designer deal on Canal Street or checking out how the working classes lived at the Tenement Museum.
Although gentrification has taken a stronghold from the Bowery to points East, some long-standing hold outs of the neighbourhood remain firmly intact – the Dominican bodega or the old school men’s clothing store run by Orthodox Jews, who aggressively pan the streets for customers.
Those with an artistic bent should head to Orchard Street to visit one of the many galleries, a destination starting to rival Chelsea for art openings per square mile.
For the culinary-inclined, trendy restaurants abound from esteemed members of the NYC foodie set. On the weekends, the under-30 crowd takes to the many bars and nightclubs lining Essex, Ludlow and Rivington Streets, the cacophony of the intoxicated teeming out into the night to remind you that you’re decidedly in the city that never sleeps.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
