About the property

Perfect Flat for 2 people

Typical tenement apt - gut renovated into a Minimalist, Spacious and efficiently designed.

these great flats are located just steps from F subway line / buses at either corner.

Simple and functional design

It is ideally located with few stairs.

Laundromat with literally across the street from our flats.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

On a break from our East Coast trip in early April, it was great to have stayed in this small apartment, which still retains characteristics of the time the East Village was a neighborhood of young artists. Situated in an absolutely quiet street, it has everything a house should have for anyone who wants to prepare and have their breakfast before going out to explore the city all day. The friendly host couple knows everything about the neighborhood and helped us a lot with their suggestions on what to do there and in other parts of the city. One great tip they gave us and we recommend was to buy the Metrocard 7-days unlimited. With this fixed-price card, you can take subway and bus to anywhere in the city, rest your legs when you are tired or get out of the rain and continue enjoying the scenery. We hope to return to New York soon and we will definitely want to stay in this place.

New York City Stay

  • 4 of 5

Elina and her husband greeted us on our arrival. The apartment was perfect for us. Ample room, quiet, lovely outdoor courtyard and close to the subway. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. Our hosts gave us lots of tips about NYC and we really enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful time in the east village!

  • 5 of 5

Eliana and her husband are perfect hosts! They went out of their way to accommodate our schedule and to make us feel right at home. They even greeted us with cherries from the farmers market!

Their cozy apartment has everything one needs for a weeklong stay and is immaculately clean! Best of all, it is right in the middle of foodie paradise.

Great Pad

  • 5 of 5

I booked with Eliana & her Husband a couple of months before I left and right from the start they incredibly helpful sending through a heap of information of what to do in the area and also in NYC. On arrival they were there with a cold beer and and even more helpul hints on getting round "The City" and also East Village.

The place is in a great location, clean and secure. The outside courtyard is also a bonus. Quite a rare find in this part of the world. I was there in Spring and got both cold and warm weather, there place was cozy in the cold and cool in the sun. Ideal for a couple of people that really want to experience the East Village and what it has to offer.

My hosts were also available and easily contacted for any questions or help that I required for the 2 and a half weeks I was there. If you are looking for a real NYC experience with no stress and 2 great people to help you around then book here. Once again guys thanks for having us and I'll be back soon and look forward to more of that Choclate Cake!

Owner's Response: Andy was an Aussie who had chosen our services to spend 2 whole weeks to celebrate his birthday in NYC..He was no exception like all Australians guests before him - Enthusiastic, Educated , World Traveller and very Appreciative of all the efforts we put into our particular way to host. We develop a liking for him that on the day he was celebrating his 40th we surprised him with his favorite chocolate mousse cake. We are sure he will be back as promised.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I went to New York to celebrate my 25th birthday. It was for both of us the first time there. We were kind of nervous to find a great apartment to stay at. Eliana and her husband made the process so much easier for us. They replied quickly to our request of renting their apartment. They asked for some personal information about us, that showed that they were careful about who they rent to. As this was their newest apartment it wasn’t ready yet when we booked but they informed us ahead of time and kept us informed every step of the way. Their transparency gave us a really great feeling. They also mailed us some useful tips for our visit in NY.

When we arrived at the apartment we were welcomed by Eliana, her husband was out of town. Eliana is fun, hospitable and caring, we had a great time getting to know each other. She filled the fridge with food and drinks for us, which we appreciated a lot. Before she left she told us that if we needed anything we shouldn’t hesitate to call. Every now and then she would check in on us via text. We really appreciated that. The location of the apartment was great. That made traveling in NY very easy. Te property comes as advertised and is clean and well stocked with all the necessities. We had a tremendous stay and we would do it all over again.

Owner's Response: When we got Laetitia’s request, the apartment she liked wasn't ready yet. So all we could offer was pictures of the raw space plus an architectural rendering of the way the apartment would look like. Laetitia and Charissa's leap of faith was rewarded from both end: They got the chance to be our first guests at this flat and we are happy that, as hosts, we could correspond to their expectations. They are very polite, very well educated, respectful, joyful and beautiful young ladies - the kind of girls that any parent would be proud of, the ones that we'd like to have as our daughters. We hope they have a blessed life, full of happy travels as this one we we were part of. They are welcome any time they come back to NYC.

The East Village and the Lower East Side has turned into the epicenter of hype and fashion in NYC. Needless to say they are the best neighborhood for all times especially for night life.

These flats are in the heart of these famed neighborhood.

Whole Foods is around the corner!!!

F train steps away down the block.

Uptown and Downtown buses on either corner.

Review Submitted: June 12

Date of Stay: May 2012

The apartment was well maintained, comfortable and clean, with the added bonus of a fridge stocked with all the essentials – an excellent thought, especially for evening arrivals. The photographs provided when we first inquired about the apartment were an accurate description,far better than I expected (from previous renting experiences) and it really felt like home for the 10 days we were there. Eliana’s husband organized a taxi

Location is perfect, close to a number for subway lines (F line is closest, but only 10-15 minutes walk to other lines.) The East Village has more than enough bars and restaurants to keep anyone occupied, but Lower East Side, Soho, etc are all within walking distance too. To summarize, good apartment, good transport links, good local bars and restaurants, close to lower Manhattan areas for sightseeing, shopping or whatever you want to do. Highly recommended – we’d stay again.
