About the Property

two bedrooms sleeps 1 to 5; 1 full bathroom with tub and shower. Table for 5

(No elevator-- 4 flight walk up, so if that is a problem stop reading now! . . . 61 steps altogether)
It is the same price for up to 5 people ; if you rent for less than 7 nights there is an extra charge of 60 USD . . . It is just as much time and work to get it ready for 1 night as 7 or more nights
This floor- through apartment is located on the most beautiful block in Manhattan's East Village, lined with weeping willows and other huge trees. The view from avenue C is rather countrified, trees and gardens, but less spectacuar then before hurricane Irene and another storm, but it is still nice. It's an 1890's building renovated in 1993, with new plumbing and electric, and re-roofed in 2013. There are lovely brick walls, an old pine floor, and a beautiful sleeping loft, with a double bed in the living room. A thoroughly charming atmosphere, with lots of sun and air.. . . Air- Conditioned in summer, and 4 fans besides the A-Cs.. . . .and heated all night long in winter, (you can shut off the heat if you want). Kitchen looks out on huge garden with several species of very beautiful trees. 4th floor, no elevator. One week rental minimum, if less than a week add 60 USD to the final price. I will add it to the bill .Payment is in advance , with nothing to pay on arrival, like a prepaid vacation. Pleas insure your trip against interruption, from weather , sickness or unforeseen events, as I cannot offer refunds. Homeaway recommends ALLIANZ

East Village 1s becoming classier daily: This is a growing neighborhood, yet retaining the tradition of smaller, neighborhood run Parks, tended to by volunteers, and ambitious amateurs of gardening, each trying to out-do their neighbors. You can visit these botanical hot spots during the day and on weekends.
Restaurants of different ethnicity have sprung up all over, all new--and these are reasonable in price, and attractive in , decor.There's a little thin crust Pizza store on Avenue B that looks like an old New York candy store (Gruppo). Several French restaurants (Rue B, and "26 Seats") and Esperanto --a Brazillian place on the corner with live Brazillian Musicians often and with sidewalk tables for Brunch on Sundays.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I'm a retired marble worker, I live 2 hours away. I'm really glad to have people stay here. Many people sincerely loved it. SEe Reviews

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
It is bright and sunny , but has only 2 walls facing outside, so it is nice and warm in the winter. he ceilings are high-8.5feet to10.5 feet high depending on the room. If it is 90 or more degrees and sunny, the loft is too hot sometimes in the summer, so some guests pulled the foam mattress down and slept on the floor, if there were 5 guests. If there re only 1-3 people you dont need it.
