Property description

Welcome to the storybook West Village: fantastic restaurants and cafes, beautiful shops, cobblestone streets and the old-world charm of brownstones and a more casual, laid back, downtown way of life.

The (Far) West Village is the most sought after neighborhood in all of Manhattan, home to many celebrities, models, artists, etc. Walk a couple of blocks west and you are on the beautiful Hudson River with all that the Hudson River Park has to offer. In addition to beautiful sunset strolls along the recently opened Highline Park, you can take part in the many sports activities and children’s programs at Chelsea Piers or the free programs offered by the Park and the Piers such as free outdoor screenings, free kayaks, mini-golf, free concerts, bike rentals and much, much more.

The apartment is a roomy, truly charming, airy, light-filled, TRUE 1-bedroom which is difficult to find on this site among the studios and Junior 1 BR’s (studio with a cordoned off bed). On the top floor of a turn-of-the-century brownstone, the apartment has hardwood floors, a decorative, original brick fireplace, a large marble bathroom with an antique sink and clawfoot soaking tub, a dining area, 2 huge eastern-facing picture windows, a large L-shaped couch (that can be used for EXTRA SLEEPING), a brand new 46 in. flat screen, microwave, premium cable, wifi, a huge 5 ft. x 5 ft. skylight in the living room and a smaller skylight in the bathroom providing gorgeous light all day.

West Village shopping is unparalleled. Within a 10 block radius you have all of the upscale shopping of Bleecker Street including Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Intermix, Cynthia Rowley, Lulu Guiness and others. And a few blocks in the other direction will take you into the Meatpacking District shopping area, home to Diane Von Furstenburg, Jeffrey, Stella McArtney, Scoop, Derek Lam, Hugo Boss, Moschino, Matthew Williamson, Catharine Malandrino, etc.

Exquisite dining choices of all types and prices are too many to list as the West Village and the surrounding neighborhoods of Chelsea, Soho and Tribeca are home to downtown’s finest. And if you’re up for a bit of a walk or a short subway or cab ride you can add the East Village, Gramercy, Lower East Side and Chinatown to your restaurant experiences. Not to mention that almost everyone delivers, many late into the night. It’s New York!

Cabs are very easy to catch at any time of day. The 1, 2, 3 line is a 4 min. walk to either the Christopher or Houston stop and it’s a 6 min. walk to the 4th st. hub station where you can catch the B, D, F or the A, C, E trains.

Keywords: Enjoy the West Village lifestyle, great restaurants, shopping, walk to Chelsea Piers, 10 mins. to theater district, movies, South St. Sea Port.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Property Damage Protection $99
  • Taxes Not included


We prefer 1 tenant for a long term rental. Holidays are priced differently if the apartment is available, please inquire for holiday prices. Holiday pricing only if tenant is non-long-term, less than 30 days. Long term rate is based upon a 30 day stay.

However, we are flexible so if you are looking for 30, 45, 60 days, whatever, please let us know. We'll try to make it work. To be clear, this does not mean days above 30 will be rated at the monthly standard price of $4950/mo.

All utilities are included in the long-term monthly rental rate, if there is not a negotiated discounted in rate.

Deposit of 50% is required to book the apartment. Once the monies clear the apartment is then booked by you. A tenant agreement must also be signed, and for the most part, is not negotiated. The agreement simply states the terms of the sub-lease and obligates you to the apartment and building rules. There is nothing unusual in either the agreement or rules; terms, common sense and respecting the apartment and neighbors. We are flexible and practical up to a point so please don’t hesitate to talk to us about any questions, special needs or comments.

15 days prior to arrival, the remaining 50% of the fee is required. At the owners expense the keys will be fed-ex'd to an address of your choice. We recommend the tenant purchase damage protection from this site. In the past, we did require deposits. However, deposits are not released immediately and are usually at least a one month fee. For a one-time charge of $99.00 you can protect yourself from accidents and the loss of a considerable amount of money. In addition, once you return your keys and the apartment is verified to be in as is condition, you will not be waiting for your deposit.

We are not expecting to use a deposit to fix something due to normal wear and tear. If there is a problem, we'll talk and resolve the issue fairly. Damage protection works for both parties, a fruitful process to cover both owner and tenant.

Cancellation policy:

Policy available by contacting owner when booking.

Please wait... Pay with Confidence

Paying through this free service protects your payment up to $10,000 against listing fraud. If you are not paying through HomeAway Payments always call the owner at the number listed on our website and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.
